The Very First Year is an all day public event on July 27, 2013 in consideration of this fact, organized by current Fellow Laurel Ptak and inspired by her ongoing research at Eyebeam into cyberfeminist art practices since the 1990s.

Join us Saturday, July 27 for the inaugural event, exploring aspects of gender, feminism, technology and art.

Featuring afternoon installations and activities by Feminist Economics Department (the FED), Miki Foster,Jen Kennedy + Liz LindenQueer TechnologiesCassie Thornton, and Caroline Woolard, and an evening potluck dinner with presentations of current work by numerous female Eyebeam Alumnae.

Queer Viral Practices in New Media Art and Theory

#sxsw #queerviral

 In this panel, we will focus on queer new media art and philosophy that uses and intervenes into the viral to form a radical politics of revolt and utopia. Viral will be engaged with technically, philosophically, artistically, biologically, and effectively. Our aim is to show that while viral rhetoric and discourses have marginalized and controlled queer populations, the viral remains an allusive, volatile potential that can be experimented with toward creating new queer politics and worlds. Cárdenas and Mehrmand will discuss their current collaboration virus.cirus, an episodic series of performances using wearable electronics and live audio to bridge virtual and physical spaces that explores queer futures of latex sexuality amidst a speculative world of virus hysteria and DIY medicine. Blas will speak on new works from his ongoing Queer Technologies project that attempt to formulate a viral aesthetics based on a replicating difference of never-being-the-sameness against capital’s own modulating structure.

Not only people but also bots, search engines and spiders abide by laws and agreements. Whether we email, surf or chat, rules and regulations have an effect on our daily lives and on the way we  move in public space. Which social behavior do governments, companies and regulators project on machines? What is the social contract written into standards and technological infrastructure?

In Connection Protocols, the Brussels-based arts lab Constant gathers research material on how people, machines and environments connect with each other. This collage  of artworks, notes, manuals, instructions, images and texts can be read as a publication that will be edited ‘live’ during the festival period. With this living collection that moves along the stairs of STUK, Constant tries to  balance ‘soft’ factors such as attraction, affection, similarity and curiosity with the prescriptive and indisputable character of formatting, contracts and ‘terms of use’ documents.

On September 20th, Queer Technologies will present on the Queer Viralities: Resistant Practices in New Media Art and Philosophy panel with Micha Cárdenas and Elle Mehrmand at the International Symposium on Electronic Art in Istanbul.

 

Queer Viralities: Resistant Practices in New Media Art and Philosophy
In this panel, we will focus on queer new media art and philosophy that uses and intervenes into the viral to form a radical politics of revolt and utopia. The viral will be engaged with technically, philosophically, artistically, biologically, and affectively.

The intensification and proliferation of global connectivity has opened digital networked culture to universal contagion. Indeed, it has been argued we now live in a viral ecology under the sign of viral capitalism. As viralities spread into various realms of culture, new media artists explore the viral as that which has the ability to control and restrict as well as distribute and liberate.

Our current viral ecology has opened up new tactics of resistance for various artists, activists, and cultural producers. In this panel, we will focus on queer new media art and philosophy that uses and intervenes into the viral to form a radical politics of revolt and utopia. The viral will be engaged with technically, philosophically, artistically, biologically, and affectively. Our aim is to show that while viral rhetoric and discourses have marginalized and controlled queer populations, the viral remains an allusive, volatile potential that can be experimented with toward creating new queer politics and worlds.

Blas, Cárdenas, and Mehrmand will all give theoretical artist talks.

Cárdenas and Mehrmand will discuss their current collaboration virus.cirus, an episodic series of performances using wearable electronics and live audio to bridge virtual and physical spaces that explores queer futures of latex sexuality amidst a speculative world of virus hysteria and DIY medicine. Blas will speak on new works from his ongoing Queer Technologies project that attempt to formulate a viral aesthetics based on a replicating difference of never-being-the-sameness against capital’s own modulating structure.
