Since the coming of image technologies (and particularly with photography, video, and the Web) contemporary culture has lost control over images, which became more and more independent from their author. Luca Panaro formulates his thesis by reinterpreting the works of theorists (Susan Sontag, Walter Benjamin, Vilém Flusser), writers (Luigi Pirandello, Italo Calvino, Penelope Lively), even film directors (Buster Keaton, Michelangelo Antonioni, Wayne Wang), and finally contemporary artists (Franco Vaccari, Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno, Wolfgang Staehle, Roberto Cuoghi, Carlo Zanni, Eva and Franco Mattes).

Tuesday, December 19th, 7pm Wendy’s Subway Reading Room at BAM Next Wave Festival Featuring Danielle Dean, Millie Kapp and Noah Furman Danielle Dean is an interdisciplinary artist whose works use fiction and the aesthetics of advertisement to engage and historicize the media and cultural processes that colonize the mind and body. Drawing on her multinational background—born to a Nigerian father and an English mother in Alabama, and brought up in a suburb of London—her work explores technology, architecture, marketing techniques, and the media as tools of subjection and oppression. Dean received her MFA from California Institute of the Arts and attended the Whitney ...

The 2016 US elections marked the rise of Internet trolls, such as Milo Yiannopoulos, and inflammatory news websites, such as Breitbart, in what could be described as a pivotal moment in the era of “post representation.” But these events are merely indicative of a discourse which spans beyond American politics and has so far led artists, thinkers and activists to wonder: How is knowledge redefined when information and entertainment are rendered indistinguishable? Furthermore, could the same malicious strategies used by the far right be appreciated and even re-appropriated as a possible discourse of empowerment? The following is a think piece ...

Media Art is a controversial term that identifies manifold artistic experimentations that refer to the use of media technologies as objects and/or as a subject of investigation. The larger part of this field developed independently from the usual art circuits, proliferating in contexts like festivals, research centers, academic institutions, but also on the Internet, through communities, mailing lists, and social networks. The classical institutions of art have for a long time now recognized and hosted some of the emerging forms that traditionally belong to Media Art, however, they also demonstrated suspicion and distance which limited the possible integration and understanding ...

The artistic practice of Luca Staccioli is research-based, process-oriented, and involves different media including video, sound, photography, sculpture, drawing and collage. Conceived as narrations, his artworks perform an investigative action by questioning the distance between individuals and pre-established values, souvenirs and different times. Facing obsolescence, decay, and a loss of function, the remains of our days come out temporarily from the dynamics of construction of identity and of geographical and historical narratives, before being reabsorbed by economic processes. The artworks of Staccioli stratify and combine micro-histories, uprooted memories, as well as daily objects and nomadic images, proliferating from global-local dimensions and the ...

Digital media technologies re-pose the question of organization—and thus of power and domination, control and surveillance, disruption and emancipation. This book interrogates organization as effect and condition of media. How can we understand the recursive relationship between media and organization? How can we think, explore, critique—and perhaps alter—the organizational bodies and scripts that shape contemporary life?
