Fungiculture is looking for projects; proposals due June 15. Please consider submitting!

**
Fungiculture is the psychedelic journal for cultural studies: a space for the experimental cultivation of ideas and practices, for cross-pollinations amongst theoretical attitudes, for imagining with, between, through, alongside and against the thought of others. In this vein, our first issue explores and galvanizes collaboration as methodology and aggregating thread. We invite proposals that are specifically conceived and realized as collaborative efforts in research and speculation, focusing on any subject of interest within the study of culture. Submissions may engage with, but are not limited to discourses surrounding media studies, radical politics, aesthetics, ethics, philosophy, queer and affect theory. The selected projects will be released weekly on the Fungiculture online platform over a set period of time, inhabiting a space of further dialogue and debate. At the end of this period, the projects will be compiled as a pdf anthology available for download.

Instructions:
(As most lists of instructions, these are directions either to follow or pretend to follow, existing as restraints that may as well be worked around or against as worked within)
- Each collaborative project shall include the work of at least two contributors concerning the same object of research, theoretical discourse, or methodological concern.
- Authors should respond to each others' perspectives on a common subject, indulging in opportunities for conversation, accumulation, contradiction, interference, paradox, confrontation, friction or, even, agreement.
- Discourses may be executed in parallel, in reaction, in turns, through role reversals and via fictional characterisation.
- The form each project takes can range from interviews and dialogues to co-written essays, collage-like compilations, mosaics, or more unorthodox forms of interaction.
- The intended format should be conceived specifically to engage the subject matter at hand.
- Mixed-media projects are encouraged, and the same project may include text-based contributions, still and moving images, and sound pieces.
- Papers should not exceed 5000 words.

To submit, please send an abstract (not exceeding 500 words), to hello@fufufo.com by 15/6/2014. Please include relevant images and sound samples, if applicable, and the authors' CVs or a description of relevant previous experience. Keep in mind that abstracts must explain not just the topic of interest but also the nature of proposed collaboration and the way this will take form in the project.

this weekend in Moscow we discuss the limits and potential of art projects on the fringe between art, technology and science, as well as possibilities for their institutional support and further development in both Russian and international contexts

Just a reminder to posters on this site, that the general emphasis is on histories, or on opportunities and publications that would be of interest to our community. So if you find that your post for an exhibition of recent work, no matter how it might be related to media arts, has been deleted....that's why.

In this exhitibition at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, the past two decades have seen the emergence of a globalized and hyper-connected world, wherein which news and information are delivered in real time wherever and whenever. This constant flow of data reshapes our perception of the world. A few years ago, the term “augmented reality” was coined to describe a realm where a new layer of information alters the perception we may have of reality.
