Promotionsstipendien im Rahmen des DFG-Graduiertenkollegs “Sichtbarkeit und Sichtbarmachung”. Deadline: 30. Jan. 2011

Die Universität Potsdam schreibt 12 Promotionsstipendien und zwei Postdoc-Stipendien im Rahmen des interdisziplinären DFG-Graduiertenkollegs “Sichtbarkeit und Sichtbarmachung. Hybride Formen des Bildwissens” (GRK 1539/1) mit Beginn am 1. April 2011 aus.

Das Graduiertenkolleg verfolgt das Ziel, die heute international betriebene Forschung zur Visualisierung in Wissenschaften und Künsten unter den Gesichtspunkten des Wissens und der Reflexion für ein interdisziplinäres Promotionsprogramm fruchtbar zu machen. Das Gewicht liegt dabei auf der Verbindung von Philosophie, Kunst- und Medienwissenschaften, Allgemeiner und Vergleichender sowie Mediävistischer Literaturwissenschaft mit der Kognitionspsychologie, der Mathematik dynamischer Systeme, der Informatik und Geoinformatik (Kartographie) sowie Kunst-, Design- und Gestaltungsfächer. Gesucht werden hervorragende Promotions- und Postpromotionsvorhaben in diesen Fächern, insbesondere solchen, die im Schwerpunkt auf den Schnittstellen der beteiligten Disziplinen angesiedelt sind.

Im Zentrum stehen Untersuchungen zum Wechselspiel zwischen “Sichtbarkeit” und “Sichtbarmachung”, den Formen von Wahrnehmungsprozessen mit Bezug auf Bildmedien aller Art, den technischen Herstellungsverfahren sowie ihre künstlerische und wissenschaftliche Reflexion unter Einbeziehung empirischer Überprüfungsmethoden. Wissenschaft und Kunst, Literatur und philosophische Ästhetik, Entwurfspraxis und technische ‘Dispositive’ verweisen wechselseitig aufeinander. Das schliesst eine multidimensionale Analyse ein, wobei u.a. zur Frage steht, was mit visuellen Medien ausgedrückt werden kann und was nicht, wie sich Visualität und Diskursivität zueinander verhalten und ineinander greifen, worin die spezifischen Möglichkeiten und Grenzen visueller Argumentationen liegen, wie visuelle Verfahren die Aufmerksamkeit steuern und dergleichen mehr.

Das Kolleg spannt also bewusst einen weiten Bogen: Von der Analyse der Apparate und medialen Produktionsbedingungen über konkrete Praktiken der Sichtbarmachung, ihr Anschluss an überlieferte Bildcodes und Blickordnungen bis hin zu experimentell nachweisbaren Augenbewegungen. Die spezifisch naturwissenschaftlichen Themen sollten sich möglichst in die Arbeitsgruppen “Simulation von Szenarien mit mehreren Parametern in der aktuellen Klimafolgen- und Nachhaltigkeitsforschung”, “Experimentalpsychologische Untersuchungen zur Dynamik von Bild-/Grafikbetrachtung sowie zum Lesen literarischer Texte (insbesondere Messung von Blickbewegungen)”, “Wissensrepräsentation und -verarbeitung sowie Deklaratives Problemlösen” und “Modellierung kartographischen Wissens” einfügen können.

Erbeten werden aussagekräftige interdisziplinäre Promotionsskizzen bzw. Projektskizzen (Postdoktoranden) (ca. 10 Seiten), ein ausführliches Literaturverzeichnis, ggf. Vorarbeiten sowie ein ausführlicher Lebenslauf. Bewerbungszeitraum: 15. Dezember 2010 bis 30. Januar 2011 (Poststempel). Einladungen zu Vorstellungsgesprächen erfolgen Ende Februar.

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.

To submit works to the 2011 WRO Media Art Biennale Alternative Now see wro2011.wrocenter.pl

NEONS PROJECT / GENEVA – Call for proposals. Deadline: January 31, 2011



NEONS PROJECT / GENEVA
Public art competition
Call for proposals

Registration deadline:
January 31, 2011


Project

March 1, 2011

Artists are invited to submit proposals for a luminous artwork

The contemporary art funds of the city and canton of Geneva (FCAC and Fmac) are innovating in the sphere of public art by commissioning luminous artworks to be displayed for a ten-year period. The project already boasts six installations, by Sylvie Fleury, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Nic Hess, Christian Jankowski, Jérôme Leuba and Sislej Xhafa. Two additional luminous works, along with an exhibition, symposium, and publication, are scheduled for March 2012.

Neons was conceived by curator Simon Lamunière specifically for the Plaine de Plainpalais in downtown Geneva, Switzerland. In this sense Neons is a public art project in the form of an exhibition at city scale. The diamond shape of Plainpalais echoes the city’s waterfront. As distinct from the glamorous tourist district of the waterfront, the Plaine offers an original urban environment that combines local and business activities with seasonal, cultural, and festive events.

This competition is open to artists of all nationalities.
It concerns the roof of the building located at 4 avenue Henri-Dunant, Geneva, Switzerland.

Artists wishing to enter the contest must first register by downloading application documents found on the site http://www.neons.ch. Forms must be completed and returned no later than January 31, 2011. Completed proposals must reach the organizers no later than Tuesday, March 1, 2011. The jury composed of professionals from the contemporary art scene will select the winning proposal, which will be installed in March 2012.

New-York Historical Society & The New School Schwartz Postdoctoral
Fellows Program

The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Postdoctoral Fellows Program was
established in 2005 to foster a vibrant relation between the New-York
Historical Society and The New School’s Eugene Lang College.
Post-doctoral Fellows are invited to help build this connection through
research, teaching, and public history programming. In the course of a
one-year (non-renewable) fellowship, Bernard and Irene Schwartz fellows
are expected to develop a major research project with the resources of
the New-York Historical Society, to teach two undergraduate courses at
Eugene Lang College, and to share in both institutions’ commitments to
public history.

The successful candidate will be a recent Ph.D. (within past three
years of starting date), with a strong record of previous teaching (as
a TA or otherwise). Candidates must submit a 2-3 page proposal,
describing the theme of the major research project the fellow will
undertake, and stating specifically why the resources of the New-York
Historical Society are critical to the project. Candidates must also
submit a C.V., two letters of recommendation (which may be sent
directly), a short writing sample, and two detailed syllabi outlining
the undergraduate courses they envision teaching at the New School’s
Eugene Lang College. While all areas of American history will be
considered, the College has a particular interest in imaginative
approaches to the teaching of U.S. history, in topical courses which
address, for example, intellectual history, material culture as
history, America in the Age of Revolutions, slavery and its
consequences, patterns of leisure and consumption, urban history, and
history of communication.

The fellowship requires residency in New York for the academic year,
September 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012. Fellows will receive $60,000 plus
benefits.

Applications must be postmarked by January 12, 2011. Candidates should
send two copies of their application, one to each of the following
addresses:

Jean Ashton
