Statement (the organizers)
This third meeting of the Inclusiva-net platform aims to develop an analysis of the current situation of artistic practices on the web from various theoretical and critical perspectives. It will comprise a set of seminars, a series of communications chosen from a public call for proposals, and debate sessions. Throughout the meeting, many topics will be addressed including questions such as: Can we speak of a second epoch in net.art? What do the new art forms based on on/off-line hybridization contribute? What critical reflection do new manifestations of digital creations in networks offer us? What are the new relations between creation and dissention?
Themes for the meeting
- The evolution of artistic creation on the Internet, seen from the perspectives of Art History and Criticism, Aesthetics, Anthropology and Communication Theory.
- Net.art in the Latin American context.
- Net.art: criticism and curatorship. Recent initiatives and fundamental paths in the development of curatorship.
- New orientations related to institutions that manage the world of art and online artistic practices. The phenomenon of their disappearance from biennales and major international contemporary art exhibits.
- Beyond the Internet. From “net.art” to the new hybrid forms of “networked art”. From the computer screen to new portable networked devices.
- Developments in software art on Web 2.0.
- Artistic approaches related to the semantic web.
- “Amateur” audiovisual creativity in social networks.
- Blog-art. Artistic thought in experimental appropriation of blogs.
- Artistic proposals and metaverses. 3D social networks as new spaces for artistic intervention.
- The social and critical dimension of artistic practices on the Web. New developments in the relationship between art and online activism.
- The creative dimension of new social organizational behaviour through networks: from “flash mobs” to politicized “swarming”.
