PRE-ORDER: VIRTUAL MENAGERIES: ANIMALS AS MEDIATORS IN NETWORK CULTURES BY JODY BERLAND
VirtualMenageries_coverIn Virtual Menageries, Jody Berland examines the role of animals in the spread of global communications. Her richly illustrated study links the contemporary proliferation of animals on social media to the collection of exotic animals in the formative years of transcontinental exploration and expansion. By tracing previously unseen parallels across the history of exotic and digital menageries, Berland shows how and why animals came to bridge peoples, territories and technologies in the expansion of colonial and capitalist cultures.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 2019 CODAME ART+TECH FESTIVAL
Deadline: 12 June 2019

Space is a canvas on which we write our stories, paint our dreams and build our realities. As the film camera captured the transformation of the modern world, so, too, do emerging digital media point their lenses toward the future. Through art, as we architect space, we envision the future. The 2019 CODAME ART+TECH Festival explores the many facets of space. How do technologies like virtual reality allow new ways of living, being, playing and moving in space? How do radical mapping projects redefine our relationships to our world and to each other? In this exhibition, we aim to expand our space and transcend borders. CODAME encourages participation from international artists! Find out more
InMemoriam_bar
JONAS MEKAS (1922–2019)
Mekas was a Lithuanian American filmmaker, poet, and artist who has often been called "the godfather of American avant-garde cinema." To this date he has published more than 20 books of prose and poetry. He is largely credited for developing the diaristic forms of cinema. Mekas has also been active as an academic, teaching at the New School for Social Research, the International Center for Photography, Cooper Union, New York University, and MIT.
JACK BURNHAM (1931–2019)
Burnham was an American writer on art and technology who taught art history at Northwestern University and the University of Maryland. Burnham’s art criticism frequently dealt with the relationship between contemporary artworks, technological developments and systems. He was one of the main forces behind the emergence of systems art in the 1960s.
CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN (1939–2019)
Schneemann was an American visual experimental artist known for her multimedia works on the body, narrative, sexuality and gender. Her work is primarily characterized by research into visual traditions, taboos and the body of the individual in relation to social bodies. Her works have been shown at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the London National Film Theatre and many other venues. “I guess my best advice is this: Be stubborn and persist, and trust yourself on what you love. You have to trust what you love.”
