Manifesto for a Post-Digital Interface Criticism

Andersen, Christian Ulrik, and Søren Pold’s 2011 seminal article about not only the possibilities and necessities of critical thinking under digital conditions, but about its form. Interesting to discuss further the displays-term and to ask about the surface – core-paradigm.

Digital Solidarity by Felix Stalder

Actually discussed for Kultur der Digitalität which hasn’t been, sadly enough, translated yet, Felix Stadler asked the right questions on the possibilities and the conditions on solidarity in digital conditions in this book, published 2013:

Felix Stalder’s extended essay, Digital Solidarity, responds to the wave of new forms of networked organisation emerging from and colliding with the global economic crisis of 2008. Across the globe, voluntary association, participatory decision-making and the sharing of resources, all widely adopted online, are being translated into new forms of social space. This movement operates in the breach between accelerating technical innovation, on the one hand, and the crises of institutions which organise, or increasingly restrain society on the other.

L’Extension is an experimentation, creation and research laboratory. It seeks to place art as a ground for thought, in order to produce new experiences and establishing analytical encounter situation in terms of critical and curatorial wider activities, such as publications, meetings, events, residencies, workshops and exhibitions.Within a cartographic method, the studio aims to define the outlines of emergent art, diagnose the production process of contemporary art, working on artistic endeavour, as well as producing tools for a better understanding of artistic creation’s context by the public.Located in Belleville neighbourhood and the 20th arrondissement of Paris, L’Extension provides a platform of meetings and experiences linked to its specific environment. It also aims to fill a lack of cultural access and to bridge a various and large public to contemporary art trough many accessible activities.

Deriva / commissariat d’exposition

Né en 2012 de la rencontre d’une architecte, Valeria Cetraro et d’un photographe, Edouard Escougnou, DERIVA est un laboratoire consacré au commissariat d’exposition et à la promotion d’artistes émergents. L’art est pour DERIVA une mise en relation, un discours, un dialogue, dans lequel différentes trajectoires se croisent pour créer des expériences sensibles et intellectuelles. Le dialogue existe, entre les œuvres, entre les artistes, entre le public et les œuvres. Tout dialogue créatif contient échange, questionnement, affirmation, analyse, sensibilité, partage, accord ou désaccord. Par le biais de son activité curatoriale, le travail de DERIVA veut favoriser ce dialogue, parfois l’inventer, parfois le susciter ou le découvrir.
