The Moving Museum Anthologies | Technostalgia Launch Event

The Moving Museum kicks off 2017 with the launch of a new platform of web-based anthologies. Technostalgia, the inaugural anthology edited by Coline Milliard, will go live on 22 March 2017 and explore the aesthetics of early technologies, their legacy and impact, as well as their fetishization and appropriation in a contemporary artistic context. Participating artists include Cory Arcangel, Constant Dullaart, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Peter Luining, Lorna Mills, Paper Rad, Mark Richards, Gustavo Romano, Evan Roth, Paul Slocum, Thomson & Craighead, and Ubermorgen. The Moving Museum Anthologies is a new online publishing platform that re-imagines how a contemporary art organization shares ideas online. TMM Anthologies gives cultural practitioners the opportunity to curate and share important ideas to an online audience using Internet native media. Curators, artists, writers and technologists will be invited to discuss urgent topics, contextualize artistic discourse, and share original concepts through any format imaginable on a platform made specifically for creative material beyond the written word. This unique resource will be accompanied by a series of talks, performances, and workshops held in major cities and streamed live online. The Moving Museum will be launching the platform as well as its first series of anthologies with catalytic support from the Arts Council England for the development and production of this program. To mark the opening of the programme and the Technostalgia Anthology launch, The Moving Museum will host apanel discussion at Carroll / Fletcher in London on 23 March 2017. Moderated by Coline Milliard, the panel will include artist Alison Craighead from British artist duo Thomson and Craighead, and Professor Beryl Graham, Professor of New Media Art at University of Sunderland, and co-founder and editor of CRUMB.

    PERFORM NOW!  The Potentials of a Living Archive.

    Organised by

    Block Universe x Goldsmiths, University of London

    To coincide with the launch of the fourth edition of Block Universe, London’s leading International Performance Art Festival; this panel discussion will bring together a number of contributors across disciplines to discuss past and current dynamics of performance art in the UK, and providing a platform to consider the historical significance of the ephemeral nature of performance art, through the lens and personal accounts of artists, critics, curators and academics.

    The participants include the subversive 1980s performance group The Neo Naturists; Ellen Van Schuylenburch, one of the founding members of Michael Clark Company, Jane Pritchard, curator of dance for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and Lois Keidan, director of the London-based Live Art Development Agency – LADA, as well as artists Evan Ifekoya & Victoria Sin, who are both contributing to this year’s edition of the Block Universe.

    Together we will explore ideas of an active, living archive, one that takes into account the ability of performance to sustain itself and live on through the body rather than the record, thus re-positioning the body as the centre for knowledge in place of the archive. Can we take the inherent choreographic vocabulary in dance as an example? How can performance as memory exist?

    The talk will be moderated by Louise O’Kelly, founder Block Universe and hosted by Astrid Schmetterling, Senior Lecturer in Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths, followed by an informal drinks reception to be held at the Student Union Bar.

    What We Talk About When We Talk About Work, ‘Fictional Encounters’

    The forthcoming event in the What We Talk About ... series of public discussions will explore the use of language as a medium within contemporary art and curatorial practices. Invited speakers will consider the “liminality” of language, focusing on the potential slide into fiction, misunderstanding and failure that a particular use of language in exhibition making and archival practice can facilitate. Speakers include Director of Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Alistair Robertson, curator and writer George Vasey and Amsterdam based curator, writer and semiotician Sara Giannini.
