Marcelo Tramontano 15.12.2017 V!RUS JOURNAL #15 NOW AVAILABLE!
The construction of memory
In the near or distant future, what are we going to remember? In what ways have these remembrances been built, and by whom? Such questions had been formulated in the call for papers for this edition. They beacon our understanding of the broad theme of the construction of memory and lead us in the path proposed by the articles that the fifteenth issue of V!RUS provides for reading.
It seems fundamental to us to be concerned with how these processes are constructed, in the face of the less and less veiled manipulation of news to the population, which artificializes civic feelings and worldviews, and intentionally operates the dismantling of individual memories. These are scenarios of domination and spoliation of memories that constitute "one of the cruelest exercises of oppression in modern society", according to the hard and wise words of Ecléa Bosi in the interview we publish this issue.
The premises and reflections proposed by the sixteen papers selected for publication play in the intersection of several areas of knowledge, treated with extremely varied approaches: philosophy, arts, psychology, journalism, cinema, letters, history, engineering, hypermedia, geography, pedagogy, and of course architecture and urbanism.

Stacy Jerger 14.12.2017 The annual Leonardo Music Journal, Vol. 27 is now available from Leonardo/ISAST and The MIT-Press
The theme is "History and Memory" where writers explore this topic both literally and metaphorically: memory embedded in neurons, silicon and architectural spaces; memory retrieval and composition; history as archive and as distant experience.

Thomas Philipp 11.12.2017 You love art, media and philosophy? Than take a look at these christmas cookies. Price: 45 euros. Per piece!
Michel Foucault was a French philosopher and psychologist who decisively shaped post-structuralist thinking. His portrait now decorates a shortbread made by the Austrian art collective qujOchÖ. In a one-time Christmas campaign, 100 copies of these Foucault cookies can be purchased for a price of 45 Euros each.
WTF? Foucault, ok, cool, but a cookie for 45 euros? Are you crazy?
To relieve the pain, the brand-new board game MYTH OF THEUTH is included in the purchase of a cookie. In this fantastic game you will move through ancient Athens, collecting different media in order to complete a mission. You will meet famous people who greatly influenced the development of media philosophies. Gotthold Ephraim Lessing shows you the limits of the image, Laura Mulvey takes a delightful gaze on your memorizing abilities, and Marshall McLuhan finally gets his well-deserved massage. Across 12 stations, you will use smartphones, newspapers, stamps, candy, hand, feet, pairs of eyes, and other means to discover the myth of the invention of writing by the Egyptian god Theuth, as described by Plato. Whoever manages to finish the mission first – with a combination of strategy, luck, and knowledge – will be worshiped as a divine medium!
When you buy a biscuit, MYTH OF THEUTH comes in the standard version to your home, packed in a VHS cassette case, produced in a first edition of 500 pieces. If you would like to eat two Foucault biscuits, you will be rewarded with one copy from the limited and signed edition which is delivered in a slide box. It contains additional game material, including a sleep mask, several Lego bricks and Flusser's liqueur. The prices do not include shipping costs.
More information and pictures of the game can be found at http://qujochoe.org/en/mvt. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212530122706779&set=gm.1282599978513405&type=3
