Friday, March 10, 2017 — Oxford, Ohio

 

“Living on borders and in margins, keeping intact one's shifting and multiple identity and integrity, is like trying to swim in a new element, an 'alien' element.”

CFP for MSA 19: Modernism and/as Refuge

updated: 
Monday, January 9, 2017 - 12:34pm
University of Essex
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 12, 2017

Refuge, as a condition of displacement, seeking place, and placement, and the experience of moving oneself from a position of real or perceived harm to a position of real or perceived safety, interacts in complex and illuminating ways with perceptions of home and homelessness, belonging, citizenship, state and statelessness, personhood, language, loss, as well as with everyday practices and modes of dwelling, and the emotional and cognitive strategies used to configure the past, the present, and the future. Prompted by real historical transformations and mass displacements on an unprecedented scale, the notion/condition of refuge operated vigorously, if ambivalently, in the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century.

Drain
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

What is a diagram? How do maps, charts, plans, DNA sequencing, weather mapping, computer glitches and Internet cartography blur the boundaries between ‘art’ and ‘information’? Drain calls for artworks, thought experiments, essays and reviews that explore how data has been weaved into artworks and in the other direction, artworks into data. How are surveillance, spying, data collection explored by artists?  Does Google Earth problematize artists’ relationships with space and mapping? Is there an algorithmic aesthetics?  What is at the source of the renewed artistic interest in Cybernetics?
