Travel photography has experienced great changes in recent years in the
same way as many aspects of photography have been transformed in the
digital age. Depending on the photographer’s homeland, the covers of
many albums once bore the word “Souvenirs”, “Reiseerinnerung” or
“Recuerdos” while today most of the photographs taken on trips remain
on the digital storage medium.

Technological Conditions of Intervention

Technological Conditions of Interventions. History, Epistemology,

Centre for Digital Cultures, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg
Sülztorstraße 21-35, 21335 Lüneburg

The aim of this symposium is to find out, whether (and how) the
emergence of artistic interventions and their dramaturgies are
connected with technological requirements of digital cultures. In the
focal point of interest meanwhile stands their constitution in
ubiquitous infrastructures, which forms itself into logical systems or
social networks. In these, human actors are henceforth a part of
heterogeneous and nested agencies.

Unity and Division in the History of Art

Unity and Division in the History of Art (Cleveland, 23
Oct 15)
Deadline: Jun 15, 2015

Unity and Division in the History of Art
41st Annual Cleveland Symposium
Friday, October 23, 2015
The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, Ohio

In what ways can the visual arts unite or divide humanity? How can
their subjects and functions stir us to collaboration or lead to
disagreement, apathy, or even war? How do objects themselves change
when their relationships to one another, or to the viewer, are altered
or rearranged?

nternational Scholarship Program at the

nternational Scholarship Program at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin –
Preußischer Kulturbesitz

Launched in 2009, the International Scholarship Program offers scholars
from around the world the opportunity to spend one to three months on a
research residency at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
The program supports research projects that bear direct relation to the
diverse institutions and rich collections of the Staatliche Museen zu
Berlin. It aims to strengthen the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s
position within the international scholarly network and is therefore
aimed specifically at foreign scholars who do not reside in Germany.
The program especially promotes young researchers. The scholarships
allow researchers to work on their project and make professional
contacts at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. As a result, they also get
to participate in the scholarly and cultural life within the Staatliche
Museen zu Berlin and Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz.
Graduate scholars, postgraduates and doctoral candidates as well as
post-docs and professors who do not have their residence in Germany are
eligible for application. The applicants must hold at least a first
university degree at the time of application.

The application for a grant for 2016 has to be handed in by 31 July
2015 (postmark). The application has to be submitted directly to the
Director General of the SMB.

Going beyond: Art as Adventure Rosemaey

Going beyond: Art as Adventure

Rosemaey O`Neill:

The artist-traveler has historically followed political, economic, and
cultural expansion. The role of artist as witness, reporter,
geographer, collector, and educator exemplifies the significance of
mobility, geographic and cultural mediation in the productions of
art/visual culture, and the critical questions raised as a result. In
contemporary art, especially as the result of globalization, some
artists are seeking out remote experiences as typified by Pierre
Huyghe’s Antarctic journey adapted for the production, A Journey that
Wasn’t (2005). Since, many artists have worked in-situ, in
collaboration with local populations, or translated travel experiences
from remote locations. This panel aims to pose questions about this
phenomenon and how these experiences are conceptualized and
re-constructed through reproductive mediums, installations, or
documentary formats. This panel further intends to question whether
artists’ adventuring to remote sites can, in itself, constitute a form
of conceptual art with underlying aspirations for unfamiliar, isolated,
and spatial experiences.

The foreigner allows you to be yourself

The foreigner allows you to be yourself by molding a foreigner of you.
“If ‘I’ is truly ‘I’ only a foreigner could lay claim to it. In order to be finally himself, the Jew owed it to himself not to compromise.
“The foreigner of foreigners,” I once wrote.

“What is conspicuous is not like itself.
“Only what fits, like a key in a lock, is like itself.

Reciprocal affinity molds us.”

“The nail has the hole for its Image. Cunning mirror. The hole has the nail for its pawn.”

“What is before you refers you to your image; what is behind, to your lost face.”


“Singularity is subversive.”

(The ]ourney) – E. Jabes
