Biennale de Paris 3:40pm Apr 22
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

My researches around Art Industries for Mag MCD upcoming publication next June bring me here, at Bell Labs, where many things started. This 1968 short shows some of the ways that Bell Laboratories scientists used computers in communications research. The film contains sequences of computer-generated movies, photographs, music and speech. Thanks to Michael A. Noll and Alcatel-Lucent

Nicole Sansone 3:43pm Apr 19
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.
