13th Lyon Biennial

Since its creation in 1991, Thierry Raspail, artistic director of la Biennale de Lyon, has been inviting each guest curator to reflect on a word spanning three editions. La Biennale 2015 will start a new trilogy with the word “modern”, a word that Thierry Raspail gave to Ralph Rugoff, curator of the 2015 edition. Ralph Rugoff answers to this term with a title for 2015: La vie moderne. Below are his first thoughts on “modern”.


New Museum Triennial 2015

The New Museum announced the list of participating artists in the 2015 New Museum Triennial, the only recurring museum exhibition in New York devoted to presenting works by early-career artists from around the world. The Triennial provides an important platform for an emergent generation of artists that is shaping the discourse of contemporary art.


Alternative Topographies

Alternative Topographies is a time-based, juried media exhibition that takes the broad idea of topography to delve into questions about place: how we define place, the roles we play in the preservation and transformation of place, and how place is represented in our memories, imaginations, and shifting experiences of reality.


EMAF 2015 - call for entries

One of the strategies applied in media art is to deal with topics and positions in an ironic, humorous and satirical manner. In so doing, irony does not only serve as background entertainment, but is rather a means of analysis, classification and criticism.


Pictoplasma 11

New Media Writing Prize 2014

We are looking for good storytelling (fiction or non-fiction) written specifically for delivery and reading/viewing on a PC or Mac, the web, or a hand-held device such as an iPad or mobile phone. It could be a short story, novel, poem, documentary or transmedia work using words, images, film or animation with audience interaction. Interactivity is a key element of new-media storytelling.


Nonhuman subjectivities

Four to five hundred years ago Copernicus and Galileo ‘removed’ the Earth (and humanity) from the centre of the universe. In Western Philosophy this coincides with the ‘epistemological turn’ away from cosmology. Western civilization through the enlightenment and into the modern age has continued to place the human experience at the center of existence. Postmodernism, for example, has revelled in human subjectivity, almost to the point of denying all else.
