BREAKING: After 30 Years Andy WARHOLs Digital Art was rediscovered. I have a feeling there is better Art in the Digital Realm nowadays... Which brings us back to the eternal question and comparison of so called Contemporary Art, Art Market Art and all kinds of art forms in the digital realm, still not collected by almost all museums... http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/kunst-von-andy-warhol-nach-30-jahren-aufgetaucht-fotostrecke-113824.html

BIG DATA is no longer a buzzword but increasingly surging into our professional life. To fill this knowledge demand, the Department for Image Science at DanubeU will start in late Fall 2014 a new Master's in DATA STUDIES, bringing together an international faculty comprised of experts in the field.

Oliver Grau 3:25pm Apr 24
The program is directed by Prof. Dr. Ramón Reichert, whose new book will appear soon: http://www.amazon.de/Big-Data-Analysen-digitalen-Ökonomie/dp/3837625923

More from my reserches around Art Industries. From 1964 through around 1969, artist Stan VanDerBeek worked with computer scientist Ken Knowlton on a series of films. Each film was constructed using Knowlton's BEFLIX computer language, which was based on FORTRAN. The films were programmed on a IBM 7094 computer. The films were created in black and white, with color added later by Brown and Olvey. VanDerBeek was part of a unique program at Bell Labs that allowed artists to work with computer scientists in order to explore and advance the technology in the fields of computer graphics and music.

Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (IHEAP)

Call for Applications 2014
Session X, 2014-2016

In 1985, the City of Paris gave Pontus Hulten the task of creating a graduate school for research in contemporary art. Its antecendents were to be the Weimer Bauhaus School and Black Mountain College in the U.S., and it was meant to function as an alternative to Paris's École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts.

The Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (IHEAP) offers participants a course of study where they can free themselves from the inherited art history of the 20th century, by investigating crucial issues of art in the 21st century, an ongoing history in which the participants will eventually take part.

IHEAP is open to all those who have an interest in singular and extreme practices which currently and sporadically appear in the art world and elsewhere. IHEAP is for those who want to change their artistic practice or professional activity, for those who after several years of art school want to break free of alienated learning, who expect more from a school than a framework for artistic production, for those who reject art as it is commonly practiced, and finally for those who wish to work on essential issues in intimate and experimental conditions.

The course of study is completed in two years. The first year is composed of sessions work that mix practice and theorie. The second year is dedicated to the creation of an activity report. IHEAP does not discriminate by age. No specific diploma is required to apply.

Study at Iheap is equivalent to a post-graduate degree. The application fee is 75 euros. Tuition is 2990 euros for two years studies.

The submission of an application is an online process, according to a simplified procedure via a registration form: http://iheap.fr/en/candidature/

Deadline for the submission of applications: June 1st, 2014
