— “Mobile learning: Crossing boundaries in convergent environments” Conference Monday to Tuesday, March 21st to 22nd, 2011 in Bremen, Germany

The ‘Mobile learning: Crossing boundaries in convergent environments’ Conference builds on a series of mobile learning research symposia hosted by the WLE Centre for Excellence at the Institute of Education, University of London between 2007 and 2009. It will focus on the challenges of developing new pedagogic approaches and on the potential of mobile devices for learning in formal and informal contexts. As mobile learning is not only about learning with mobile technologies, but also considered to be “new” learning, the conference will look at challenges for research and practice in understanding the changing social and technological structures allowing the use of technology for learning that are present in our personal lives, in school and in work places. Thus mobile learning crosses the boundary of institutional learning and looks at practical fields like work-based learning and medicine, too. Also, the conference will look at the latest developments in hardware and software which can support personalised learning. By focusing on theory and practice, development and use, teaching and learning, formal and informal contexts, the conference intends to offer spaces for researchers, practitioners, developers, the industry and policy makers to exchange ideas, experiences and research around issues and approaches to mobile learning, including sociological and educational issues and their effectiveness and desirability as learning spaces as well as the design of environments. http://bremen.londonmobilelearning.net

Schoolboy Daze. Nightingale’s Playground http://www.furtherfield.org/articles/schoolboy-daze-nightingales-playground

Edward Picot reviews Andy Campbell’s four-part digital mystery-story, “Nightingale’s Playground”, which appeared online last year. “Campbell has always been at pains not to place his text in front of his images, or beneath them or to one side, like labels on tanks at the zoo or explanatory plaques next to pictures in a gallery; instead he puts his words inside his graphical environments, sometimes hidden or partially-hidden inside them, so that we have to explore to read. It pulls us in, and it makes his work inherently immersive and interactive… His central characters are often living in a reality with two layers: the “ordinary” everyday world which is mean, dull, shoddy and constricting, but relatively safe; and an inner or underlying reality which can only be glimpsed rather than viewed as a whole, possibly because it is so dangerous and frightening – a reality which emerges fitfully via dreams, games, imaginings and doodles.” This article is co-published by The Hyperliterature Exchange (http://hyperex.co.uk/) and Furtherfield.org.

e-flux journal Issue no. 23

e-flux.com/journal Inspired by Tomas Saraceno’s installation Galaxies Forming along Filaments, Like Droplets along the Strands of a Spider’s Web (2008), Bruno Latour looks at the topology of the sphere as an alternative to that of the network. Whereas networks are able to articulate cursory and diffuse forms of connectivity in the midst of an infinite expanse, the sphere can be seen as pointing the advantages of networks to another technology by which local, fragile, and complex “atmospheric conditions” can gain a formof resilience by way of a container within a broader network. How can we then apply the same logic to a means of “recomposing” disciplinary divides in a way that sustains a common vocabulary, yet overcomes established hierarchies? (see full essay here) In her response to Paul Chan and Sven Lütticken’s last issue of e-flux journal, Idiot Wind, Lívia Páldi reports on the situation in Hungary, where the incumbent Fidesz Party government has, together with the right-wing press, organized a smear campaign against a group of prominent philosophers. Seen as part of a broader push to withdraw support for public education and the arts, such moves presumably clear the way for the advancement of, in the words of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, a “fine, noble, and refined elite.” (see full essay here)

Anxieties of Social Networking: An interview with Liz Filardi. By Taina Bucher.

http://www.furtherfield.org/interviews/anxieties-social-networking-interview-liz-filardi

Liz Filardi is a New York City-based performance artist who often works in public space. She was recently awarded a Turbulence (http://turbulence.org) Commission for a networked performance piece called I’m Not Stalking You; I’m Socializing, exploring the anxieties of social networking in three modules. “Status Grabber,” the first module, is a satirical online service that extends the status update phenomenon to participation over the telephone. “Black & White,” the second module, is a Facebook-like website, consisting of two interlinked profiles, that tells the story behind one of the original cases of criminal stalking in America. “Facetbook,” the final module, is a performance piece in which the artist compiles a series of archives of her live Facebook profile to illustrate the tension of online identity– between the facade of a profile and the more telling story of how the profile changes over time. The interview was conducted by Taina Bucher, PhD fellow in the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo, Norway. Bucher and Filardi met in Greenwich Village, New York City in May, 2010.

— Lynn Hershman Leeson’s seminal documentary !WOMEN ART REVOLUTION

A Secret History to screen at The Museum of Modern Art Thursday, March 3, 6:30 p.m. Introduction by Gloria Steinem The Museum of Modern Art www.moma.org

!Women Art Revolution (!W.A.R.) charts the evolution of the Feminist Art Movement in America from the 1960s to the present, illuminating how this multi-faceted and under-explored movement—which some claim to be the most significant one of the late 20th century—radically transformed the art and culture of our times. Armed with a borrowed camera, Hershman Leeson began interviewing fellow artists in her living room, in Berkeley, California, as early as 1966. Through conversations, art, and rarely-seen archival footage, visionary artists, curators and critics present an int

imate portrayal of their fight to break down the barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large. The countless groundbreaking figures starring in it include Marcia Tucker, Nancy Spero, Silvia Sleigh, Carolee Schneemann, Miriam Schapiro, B. Ruby Rich, Yvonne Rainer, Yoko Ono, Miranda July, The Guerrilla Girls, Judy Chicago and many others. !W.A.R. has the rare honor to screen at Berlin, Sundance and Toronto Festivals. It will have its theatrical premiere at New York City’s IFC Center on June 3, 2011. !W.A.R. is a Zeitgeist Films Release. For more information: www.womenartrevolution.com For future screenings: www.zeitgeistfilms.com

Dr. Richard Barbrook & Fabian Tompsett. Interview by Marc Garrett,

Dr. Richard Barbrook & Fabian Tompsett talk about their collaborative group Class Wargames & their current project ‘The Game of War’. Guy Debord, strategist of the Situationist International, developed the game while in exile after the May ’68 Revolution, and came to regard it as his most important project. For Debord, The Game of War wasn’t just a game. The Game of War is a Clausewitz simulator: a Napoleonic-era military strategy game where armies must maintain their communications structure to survive – and where victory is achieved by smashing your opponent’s supply network rather than by taking their pieces. www.classwargames.net

— Harry Stendhal Presents: ‘Mapping Maciunas’ and ‘Exercise’, Stendhal Gallery stendhalgallery.com

“Stendhal Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of two exhibitions, ‘Mapping Maciunas’ and ‘Exercise’ on February 3, 2011. Both exhibitions examine the work of Fluxus artist, George Maciunas, who blended his education in architecture, graphic design and musicology to produce new ways of thinking about the state of contemporary society.

Throughout his life, Maciunas prided himself in the creation of ‘learning machines,’ charts and diagrams to find precedents, clarify and advance the experimental art of his time. ‘Mapping Maciunas,’ exhibits various charts and diagrams relating not only to Fluxus and the avant-garde but to history and arts education.

The documentation of Fluxus personalities and events lead to the creation of Maciunas’ ‘Diagram of Historical Development of FluxusŠ’ (1973), arguably a masterwork, which posits Fluxus in a continuum of radical art history brought center stage by Dada, Marcel Duchamp and John Cage.

Setting his sights on more practical matters, Maciunas undertook a 1968-1969 grant supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to improve arts education in the United States. His research for ‘Proposals for Art Education,’ resulted in a series of charts and diagrams including ‘Contemporary Man’ and a ‘Curriculum Plan’ for both art majors and non-major programs.

Just as Maciunas’s charts connect strains in historical movements rather then simply depicting history as a precession of events, ‘Exercise’ takes an approach to understanding Fluxus, finding the forebears of Fluxus attitude not simply in Dada or other avant-garde movements in relation to which Fluxus is often contextualized, whether it be pre-Socratic philosopher and believer in ‘universal flux’ Heraclitus, or fourteenth century philosopher and originator of the Ockham’s Razor principle William of Ockham, ‘Exercise’ alleges that the Fluxus attitude long predates Fluxus, George Maciunas, or Duchamp.

On display in ‘Exercise,’ is an installation inspired by Maciunas’s charts tracing the Fluxus attitude. Alongside this installation are Fluxus artworks by George Brecht, La Monte Young, Chieko Shiomi, Yoko Ono, Ken Friedman, Hans Richter, Giussepe Chiari, Nam Jun Paik, Robert Filliou and other artists who embody this attitude by using the concision of a haiku or a punch line to rupture our epistemological categories and encourage us to create our own. Juxtaposed with these works are artworks by David Bernstein, John Robert Moore, Nicole Demby, Narumi Iyama and Harry Stendhal, conceptual exercises that use Fluxus an a template for making one’s own templates.” (via stendhal)

e-flux journal, Issue no. 22 — “Idiot Wind: On the Rise of Right-Wing Populism in the US and Europe, and What It Means for Contemporary Art”

Guest-edited by Paul Chan and Sven Lütticken January/February 2011 Available online: e-flux.com/journal

“When Paul Chan and Sven Lütticken proposed to gather a series of “reports” on the (mostly) recent rise of right-wing, populist movements for e-flux journal, it was immediately apparent that the urgency and complexity of the topic required its own special issue. As protests erupt throughout Europe in opposition to austerity measures being pushed through by right-wing governments and EU fiscal bodies, we are also now witnessing a phenomenon spreading throughout the Northern Hemisphere in which some of the most brazen hardline racist rhetoric emerges not only from politicians, but from the general populace as well. What is going on? It is our pleasure to present Chan and Lütticken’s “Idiot Wind” as the January/February 2011 issue of e-flux journal.” —Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, Anton Vidokle
