#selfie – Imag(in)ing the Self in Digital Media

July 28, 2014

Conference

fromdu 23 April 2015 toau 24 April 2015

Organized by:Organisé par :
Institut für Medienwissenschaft, Germany

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Marburg, Germany

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Selfies are everywhere. Miley Cyrus does it, Barack Obama does it, and even pope Francis leaves his popemobile to let his followers take some selfies with him. Since the term ‚selfie’ has been chosen to be the word of the year 2013 by the Oxford Dictionaries, it has become evident that taking and sharing selfies is not just some temporary hype of web culture but a noteworthy cultural practice that calls for further academic exploration. The phenomenon of selfies raises a variety of questions regarding subjectivity, identity, the recent history of photography, network culture, and image theory. What is new about selfies? To what extent should they be considered as a remediation of older image practices like self-portraiture or personal photography? Why did the genre of ‚selfies’ become viral in social online media? How did this new visual genre evolve and develop so many subgenres? What are the technological conditions of the social practice of taking and sharing selfies? The conference seeks to explore these and other questions, which are often facing the intersection of different disciplines.

CHArt (Computers and the History of Art Group) : Conformity, Process and Deviation: Digital Arts as ‘Outsider’

Conference

18 October 2014 au

Organized by:Organisé par :
CHArt, United Kingdom

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : London, United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Digital engagement with art is thriving. Much of it is actively subversive of the traditional frameworks that enable art to be created and responded to – whether casually or professionally. This subversion takes various forms, including notions of value, uniqueness, fixity and location. The CHArt 2014 Conference wishes to explore the role of digital technologies in the underground creation, display, consumption and study of art. The online Urban Dictionary defines underground as follows: “A genre in music and other forms of media intended for an elite audience, that is often characterized by its high levels of originality and experimentation, and does not conform to typical standards, trends, or hypes as set by the popular mainstream media.” If emerging conformity and new processes must be disrupted; then what is mainstream; and what is not? – and who can tell?
The event is part of he UNDERGROUND Arts and Humanities Festival.
