IMAGES REVOLUTION

Media Arts Challenge for our Societies

Never before has the world of images around us changed so fast, never before have we been exposed to so many different image worlds, and never before has the way in which images are produced changed so fundamentally. Discussing the oeuvre of artists like William Kentridge, Jeffrey Shaw, Christa Sommerer and Olafur Eliasson a.o. I’ll show how Digital Media Art has evolved over the last thirty years into a vivid contemporary factor – became “the art of our time”.
Ironically though Media Art has still not arrived in the core cultural institutions of our societies – it is still rarely collected by museums, not included or supported within the mainframe of art history and nearly inaccessible for many scholars. Thus, we witness the erasure of a significant portion of our cultural memory. Media Art therefore needs as many bridges as possible into our societies, as the talk will demonstrate. (Oliver GRAU)

Text curatorial:

Sintagma „Sign out“, „Esci“ ori „Deconnexion“ utilizata de limbajul tehnologic al lumii virtuale reprezinta posibilitatea pe care individul, aflat în interiorul orcarui sistem, are posibilitatea de a accesa pentru a iesi în afara acestuia.
Se naste astfel o relationare indirecta dintre lumea virtuala si lumea reala a carui continut cuprinde nuante sofisticate, pozitii atitudinale, diferente de opinii care duc la de-fragmentare, di-vizare, re-compunere, re-vizuire, re-modelare, re-gândire.

1. Prin extensie, putem considera posibilitatea acestei accesari ca optiune personala de a nu mai participa la diferitele formule contextuale impuse de granitele parametrilor standard trasati de sistemele de organizare sociala.

2. Lumea virtuala da posibilitatea de a exploata la maximum capacitatile creative ale individului iar cel mai concludent argument ìn acest sens rezida poate tocmai în posibilitatea libertatii individului de a renunta la acest cyberspace în orice moment.

3. Spatiul virtual devine un spatiu în care eludarea controlului exercitat de sistemele de orice tip devine principala provocare adresata omului contemporan. Fenomene de amploare arata ca lumea virtuala nu poate fi controlata în totalitate si plecând de aici se naste speranta eliberari si în lumea reala.

4. Scoaterea la iveala a informatiilor strict secrete si publicate sub forma anonimatului (vezi WikiLeaks) precum si aparitia retelelor de socializare precum Facebook, My space, etc se face prin aceste lumi paralele virtuale ce raspund nevoilor si fragilitatii individului fata de de violenta exercitata asupra sa de sisteme dezumanizate si ostile, fata de nevoile omului recent. Aceste retele de socializare sunt exemple elocvente în acest sens.

5. Intr-o lume în care fiecare individul se identifica într-o anumita masura cu domnul K (Kafka Castelul) în care sisteme mult prea standardizate, invadate de proceduri osificate ce în unele cazuri au efecte retrograde asupra individului pentru ca nu sunt adaptate necesitatilor reale ale societatii, apare la orizont o usa pe care pe care se posteza “profetic” sintagma “sign out”.
Accesarea din perspectiva dimensiunii artistice a acestei sintagme are în vedere libertatea de care poate beneficia capacitatea individului creator din zona media cu scopul de a influenta evolutia si reglarea sistemelor de organizare disfunctionale din diverse domenii socio-cultural-politice. etc si nu în ultimul rând de a umaniza o realitate contingenta folosindu-se, paradoxal, de un instrument oferit de o realitate virtuala.

Discussing the oeuvre of artists like William Kentridge, Jeffrey Shaw, Christa Sommerer and Olafur Eliasson a.o.

Ironically though Media Art has still not arrived in the core cultural institutions of our societies – it is still rarely collected by museums, not included or supported within the mainframe of art history and nearly inaccessible for many scholars.

Curatorial text:

„Sign out“, „Esci“ or „Deconnexion“ is a syntagm used by the technological language of the virtual world and represents the possibility that the individual accesses to leave any kind of system he is placed into.
This leads to an indirect relation between the virtual and real world whose content includes sophisticated nuances, attitudinal positions, differences of opinion leading to de-fragmentation, di-vision, re-composing, re-vision, re-shaping, re-thinking.

1. Through extension, we may consider the possibility of this accession as a personal option not to participate anymore to the different contextual formulas imposed by the limits of the standard parameters traced by the systems of social organization.

2. The virtual worldgives the possibility to maximumly exploit the individual’s creative abilities and the most conclusive argument hereby is mainly the individual’s possible freedom to give up to this cyberspace at any moment.

3. The virtual space becomes a space where eluding the control exercised by any kind of system becomes the main challenge of the European man. Ample phenomena show that the virtual world cannot be fully controlled and thus there is hope for freedom in the real world too.

4. Revealing anonymously top secret information (see WikiLeaks) as well as the apparition of social networks (Facebook, My space) is achieved through these virtual parallel worlds responsive to the individual’s needs and fragility against the violence exercised by dishumanizing, hostile systems.

5. In a world where each individual identifies himself to a certain extent with mister K (Kafka – The Castle), where overstandardized systems invaded by ossified proceedings which, in some cases, have retrograde effects upon the individuals because they are not adapted to the real necessities of the socities, there appears on the horizon a door with a ‚prophetic’ sign on it: „sign out”
Accessing this syntagm from an artistic point of view takes into consideration the freedom of the media creative individual. The aim is to influence the evolution and adjustement of disfunctional systems of organization in various social-cultural-political fields and last but not last, to humanize a contingent reality by paradoxically using an instrument offered by a virtual reality.
