New Ship Design

This is the Captain speaking: Drawing on my vast experience in Naval Architecture, I changed the Design of the Curatorship, so that you land-rats can see more Calls, News and Events at a glance. Obviously, the vessel’s stability is still considered in both its hydrostatic sense as well as a hydrodynamic sense, meaning that it still exceeds the standard speed/length ratio, allowing it to outrun most of its bow wave. Which means that you will always be the first to know when I see interesting news for the arts community on my radar. Hope you like it. If not, please suggest another superstructure!

Please remember that you are invited to contribute to this enterprise. However, safety equipment such as lifeboats, liferafts, fire extinguishers, and survival suits have to be carried aboard by each sailor, for emergency use.


Media Art Biennale WRO 2011. Deadline for submissions: 5.01.2011

December 14, 2010

Call for works: 14th Media Art Biennale WRO 2011 Alternative Now

The WRO Media Art Biennale is the leading international forum for new media art in Poland and Central Europe. Since its inception in 1989, WRO has been presenting art forms created using new media for artistic expression and communication, exploring current creative territories and building a critical perspective toward emerging issues in art and society.

Over the years, the WRO Biennales have raised a variety of questions about creative approaches to new technologies and the expanding technosphere of social media—about the creative crossover realms that arise where art and science, economics and social activism intersect.

The theme of the 14th WRO Biennale, which starts on May 10th 2011, is ALTERNATIVE NOW, highlighting the roles of individual artistic stances and strategies that keep a deliberate distance from the institutionalized mechanisms and standardized expectations of the art world.
