7. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: "2007/08 Programming" Video Pool Media Arts Centre (Winnipeg)
Deadline: March 23, 2007; Source: Akimbo

Contemporary culture is permeated by a fascination with media and trends in consumer electronics. Media artists often follow their own fascination with technology and its creative potential into uncharted territory. In an effort to free themselves from the technical and aesthetic restraints of conventional approaches, artists create new processes, strategies and systems for dealing with media. Technology is creatively misused and repurposed; found or antiquated media is reused and reinterpreted; and traditional approaches to media are hacked, bent and reprogrammed to create unique artistic results.

Video Pool is inviting submissions on the theme Off the Grid: The Creative Misuse of Technology for the 2007/08 programming season.

Video Pool invites submissions of:
New Media
Experimental Electronics
Installation (with media components)
Audio Art
Curatorial packages (with media components)

Video Pool’s 2007/08 programming season will include three programs specifically focused on new media performance and single channel film and video in the following three categories:

- Machinima
Film and video made using avatars and/or video game environments.

- Performance Lecture
Performances that bend the usual accoutrements of academic lectures – slide shows, power point presentations, video clips, etc., – to critically reflect on the form of the lecture and props used to support intellectual authority.

- Camera-free film and video
Submissions may explore the range of camera-free image manipulation – from well established film techniques such as hand processing and optical printing to computer-based image manipulation in programs such as After Effects.

Due to funding requirements, primary consideration will be given to Canadian citizens.

All submissions must include:

- C.V. or artist resumé including current contact information (address, telephone # and e-mail) for the artist/curator.
- A short description of the project or video(s) including an outline of the project’s curatorial and/or critical objectives.
- The project and/or video title(s).
- Artist’s name(s).
- Project/video year(s) of completion and city(s) of origin.

- Support material: Please do not send originals. Video Pool will not accept responsibility for the loss of or damage to, support material.
Still images should be submitted on CD.
Video support material should be NTSC and submitted on either VHS, Mini DV or DVD.

We have the pleasure to announce our third Performance Art Workshop from the 16th - 26th May 2007 in Gdansk and Gdynia, Poland. The first PORT PERFORMANCE Workshop took place in Gdansk in Poland in August 2006. (documentation: <http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_gdansk.htm>http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_gdansk.htm) The second was realized in Tallinn and Pärnu in Estonia in January 2007. (documentation: <http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_tallinn.htm>http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_tallinn.htm)

The third workshop we offer in our home port in Poland. The two cities at the baltic sea connects an interesting duality. Gdansk with its traditional and historical meanings on the one side and on the other side Gdynia as a young and dynamic community. Two towns, two faces. But both base their existence on the relation to the sea with ports, ships, shipyards and fishings. An interesting field for our performative researches between contrast and balance.

The workshop will be given by the international Performance artists and teachers <http://www.bbbjohannesdeimling.de/af-biography.htm>Angelika Fojtuch and <http://www.bbbjohannesdeimling.de/vita.htm>BBB Johannes Deimling. The aim of the workshop is to work out an Art-Performance and its final public presentation. We will realize specific exercises that will help to transform own ideas into a performative work. The center of the workshop focuses the perception of the own personality and the communication with the body. Own perception and self experiences characterize the feeling in dealing with body, time and space in performance art as well as in ordinary communication. To understand his body as a tool and to use this tool in his own communications is the main value of this workshop. Besides this artistic offer we give some cultural specials.

- develop an Art Performance with technical, pedagogical and artistic guidance

Der erste PORT PERFORMANCE Workshop hat im August 2006 in Danzig in Polen stattgefunden. (Dokumentation: <http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_gdansk.htm>http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_gdansk.htm)

Der zweite Workshop wurde in Tallinn und Pärnu in Estland im Januar 2007 realisiert. (Dokumentation: <http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_tallinn.htm>http://www.portperformance.net/workshop_tallinn.htm).

Den dritten Workshop bieten wir in unserem Heimathafen in Polen an. Die beiden Städte an der baltischen See verbindet eine interessante Beziehung. Danzig mit seiner historischen und traditionellen Bedeutung auf der einen Seite und auf der anderen Seite Gdynia ein geschichtlich junger und dynamischer Ort. Zwei Städte, zwei Gesichter. Aber Beide existieren in Bezug auf das Meer mit Häfen, Schiffen, Werften und Fischerei. Ein interessantes Feld für unsere performativen Untersuchungen zwischen Kontrast und Balance.

Der Workshop wird von den internationalen Performance Künstlern und Lehrern <http://www.bbbjohannesdeimling.de/af-biography.htm>Angelika Fojtuch und <http://www.bbbjohannesdeimling.de/vita.htm>BBB Johannes Deimling. Ziel des Workshops ist die Erarbeitung einer Kunst Performance und deren öffentliche Präsentation. Wir werden gezielt unterschiedlichste Übungen realisieren, die helfen werden eigene Ideen performativ umzusetzen. Im Zentrum des Workshops stehen die Wahrnehmung der eigenen Person und die Kommunikation mittels des Körpers. Selbstwahrnehmung und Selbsterfahrung prägen das Empfinden und den Umgang mit Körper, Zeit und Raum sowie die alltägliche Kommunikation. Es gilt, seinen Körper als Werkzeug zu begreifen und diese Tools in eigenen Kommunikationsräumen anzuwenden. Neben diesem künstlerischen Angebot, bieten wir einige kulturelle Besonderheiten an.

- Entwicklung einer eigenen Kunst Performance unter fachlicher, pädagogischer und künstlerischer Begleitung
- performative Übungen unter unterschiedlichen Bedingungen im Innen- und Außenraum (Schwerpunkte: Körper, Raum, Konzentration, Ausdauer, ... in der Gruppe und individuell)

Circuit bending is the creative short-circuiting of electronic devices such as children's toys and synthesizers to create new muscial instruments and sound generators. Armed with a few soldering irons, wires, and an assortment of buttons, Mini will demystify this accessible practice, exploring the possibilities of using it both in a live performative context, as well as in the studio. Participants should each bring at least one used sound-generating battery-operated toy to modify during the course of this hands-on workshop.

Students are invited to participate in a live experimentation at the Sala Rossa later that evening.

13. CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS: Pranks.com Blog/Web Site (USA)

Joey Skaggs writes:

"I've owned the domain name pranks.com for about 10 years. I have always had it pointed to my web site joeyskaggs.com. I've now decided to separate it and make it an independent, free standing Blog/Web site.

"I'd like the site to become “the” Prank portal on the Internet. It will cover everything having to do with pranks, hoaxes, culture jamming, and reality hacking -- past, present and future -- mainstream and counter culture. I'll be producing and managing the site and I hope for it to be informative, entertaining and inspiring.

"If possible, I'd like to launch the site on April 1, 2007. The whole site won't be finished by then, but there should be enough to get it going. So, I'm seeking contributors, editors, writers, photographers, forum moderators, and linkers on a one time or continuing basis.

"This site is a "labor of love" and as such, there is no budget for writing or photo fees. But contributors will receive credit for their work and can have links to their sites. It is being designed by David Bunde of dgbdesign.com and hosted by Laughing Squid.

"If you or someone you know is interested in contributing to this effort, please send me an email, letting me know which topics interest you and what kind of involvement you would like to have. Below is an outline of the topics that will be covered. I'm open to comments and suggestions. My email address is joey@joeyskaggs.com. My phone number is 212-254-7878. Thank you in advance for your time and thoughts on this."

Maureen Muwanga Senoga is an art educator/lecturer at Kyambogo University, one of Uganda’s national universities. She has extensive experience in teaching ceramics, and art education (principles and methods of teaching), for pre-service and in-service full-time and distance students. As artist/ teacher/ researcher, she has participated in a number of national and international forums, notable among them being the 1999 Ma’Afrika contest in South Africa under the theme, “Preservation of Indigenous Arts and Crafts”. She has conducted and supervised research in art at university level. Her Med. thesis was on “Arts Innovations at ‘O’ Level in Uganda”, (an investigation into the attitudes towards the Art & Crafts Experimental Syllabus). She also carried out a video recording and biographical research on 15 contemporary Ugandan artists. Maureen was part of the team that researched on “Traditional Pottery and its Technology as a Source of Employment :a case of Gishu Traditional Pottery”, Mbale District-Uganda, 1999. She intends to discuss her plans to alter and enhance possibilities in relation to Ugandan arts education curriculum development and she wonders what she can glean from an exploration of/in cultural studies and gender to assist her endeavour.

Spy Dénommé-Welch is a multi-disciplinary artist and scholar, originally from Timiskaming but now residing in Toronto, Ontario where he is currently pursuing his doctorate at York University. As a film-maker, visual artist and playwright, he has seen his work staged, screened, and exhibited across Canada at The National Arts Centre, The Fringe, Toronto Theatre Festival, Ed Video, Zavitz Gallery, The George Luscombe Theatre, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and Inside Out. Recently, his film was premiered at the 17th Annual Melbourne Queer Film Festival in Australia and his two-act play “Exit Eagle Eye” (2007) was performed at Native Earth in Toronto. Spy has presented at many conferences including: The World Indigenous Women & Wellness Conference, Canadian Association for the Prevention of Discrimination and Harassment in Higher Education, and the Ontario University Employment Equity Network. He addresses subjects ranging from First Nations queer identities to those around land and space(s) such as in his recent film, “Toronto/Tkaronto: A Native Perspective” (2005), which deals with the loss of Native culture and portrays this absence over images of the city streets.

17. EVENT: Day of 39@rt ("thank you art") (Japan)
Date: March 9, 2007; Source: Yoshinori Niwa


The Day of 39@rt ("thank you art") is a holiday to appreciate, promote, and otherwise positively engage ourselves in contemporary art. It was established by Kaihatsu in 2000 to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan, the country where support for contemporary art is still weak at best, if not altogether absent.

In Japanese, "thank you" rhymes with 3/9 (san-kyuu), because there is no "th" sound in Japanese and the Japanese people tend to pronounce "th" as "s." Thus, the Day of 39@rt on March 9.

Last year, 20 museums and 90 art galleries/spaces, as well as individual artists and Internet-based entities in Japan, offer special tie-in programs on March 9 (or the week of March 9). Participants outside Japan include: United Net-Works in Sweden and Urban Shaman Inc. in Canada.

An art gallery, a museum and an individual may participate in this project in various ways.
I recommend you will offer something special to your audience by:
- giving a discount on admission
- giving a discount on works
- preparing special wrapping kits or
- serving a cup of tea or other refreshment.

Anyone can participate in this "art holiday" in his/her own way!!!
