Call for Works: Transmediale 2012: In/Compatible

International PhD workshop and conference, organised by Digital Aesthetics Research Centre/Centre for Digital Urban Living, Aarhus University, in partnership with the transmediale festival for art and digital culture, and Universität der Künste, Berlin.

SUBMIT YOUR WORK
Deadline: 31 August 2011
With the conceptual framework of in/compatible we are looking for artistic works in any genre and format that either explicitly or in more subtle ways engage the incompatible nature of contemporary technological cultures. We imagine that these works rather than anticipating resolution, address, accentuate and invest in the unresolved tensions across translocal media practices and systems. In particular we are calling for works that take us by surprise by not quite “fitting in“.
The selected works will form part of our exhibition as well as of our screening, performance and conference programme. While there will be no transmediale Award this year, works may be considered for the Vilém Flusser Residency Programme, taking the form of a 2 months artistic research residency run by tm and UdK in Berlin.
Works taken into consideration for the programme can be related to the following keywords and areas:
dissensual aesthetics, hacktivism, operating systems, speculative realisms, queer technologies, strange ontologies, displacements, ecologies, psychedelia, glitches, spam, media-archaeologies, technological obsolescence, haunted media, reverse remediations, the untimely, erotics, ambivalences, tools, law, anxieties, confusions, violence, obscurities, junk, addictions, restlessness, destructions, attractions, accidents, isolation, punk, surrealisms, aggressiveness, the uncommon, frustrations, spiritualities, risks, dubious calculations, psychosis, uneven structures, crimes.
