Current issues

Current issues | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Techno-ecological perspectives have become now one of the key directions in contemporary discourses and are part of a larger paradigm shift from new media to post-media art. A range of practices which were once subsumed under terms such as media art, digital art, art and technology or art and science, have experienced such growth and diversification that no single term can work as as a label any more. Traditionally separated domains are brought together to become contextual seedbeds for ideas and practices that aim to overcome the crisis of the present and to invent new avenues for future developments. This is the 2nd volume in the Acoustic Space series that continues to build a 'techno-ecological' perspective whereby new artistic practices are discussed that combine ecological, social, scientific and artistic inquiries. Edited and published in the context of the exhibition Fields, it makes a perspective its own that sees art as a catalyst for change and transformations.

On Merit | THE ARTIST AS DEBTOR

On Merit | THE ARTIST AS DEBTOR | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

W.A.G.E.’s myopic focus on artist fees has sometimes been the subject of criticism by those who would argue that artists have always been unpaid, or that the sum total of W.A.G.E.’s efforts will result only in minor increases in quality of life for a limited number of artists, and that these efforts are ultimately reformist and fail to deal with the super-structural problem of economic inequity and exploitation engendered by capitalism, and most alarmingly, that calling for the remuneration of cultural value in capital value in fact operates in collusion with said super-structure.

The Creative Class and the Movies - The New Yorker

The Creative Class and the Movies - The New Yorker | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

His two main culprits are the Internet—which has decimated the recording industry, the bricks-and-mortar outlet, and newspaper publishing—and rising economic inequality, which has depleted the public coffers and reduced public spending on cultural projects of all sorts, from the construction of museums and concert halls to the sustenance of orchestras and the financing of arts education in schools. But he adds some peripheral villains to the scene, including the rise in academia of cultural studies that renounce established cultural distinctions; literary theories that dethrone the humanistic and aesthetic approach to literature; longstanding American suspicion of intellectuals; and even the enduring romanticism regarding artists, who are, in this view, “either soaring deities or accursed gutter-dwellers”—thus helping to rationalize a culture that leaves artists no option but to succeed as celebrities or sink as obscurities.

BEYOND HORIZONS

BEYOND HORIZONS | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The expression “to look beyond the horizon” can be understood as meaning to search for new knowledge, or to look towards what we cannot yet fully understand or perceive. The short film program Beyond Horizons focuses on works by artists who question the governance of natural resources in Northern Norway and the High North. An important issue in this regard is the right to the land and the sea. Another core issue is climate change, and the impact local interventions can have on a global scale. By exploring these themes, the artists included in this program imply that we need to think new, or even learn from what we already know to look beyond the given horizons.
