Institute for flexible culture and technologies – Napon is inviting you to participate in the conference “Question of Memory” as well as to apply with text and essays for it’s publication.
Conference “Question of Memory” deals with contemporary digital and post digital media art and culture. In recent years, questions of archives, memories, free access to knowledge, knowledge as a common good and the defense of the right to knowledge are becoming central themes in maintaining emancipatory projects.
One example is the loss of content of new media practice, digital and post digital art, that itself is in the identity crisis. There is no consensus whether the media or digital art in general are part of contemporary art scene, or is it a specific field within the broader context of contemporary art?
Several projects had been initiated in order to map and preserve immaterial art and practice. To whom they address to? How do they communicate? The aim of the conference is to explore existing archives and platforms,motivation for their initiation and maintenance, as well as the conditions in which they operate.
This one-day conference will be held on Saturday 28/5/2016 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Novi Sad.
Call for participation to the conference is open until 05/20/2016 while the call for applications for the publication is open until 31/05/2016
All applications are done online. To apply, fill in the form which can be found on the conference website:
The project is supported by the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications of the Republic of Serbia.
