Hi folks - Antirom are holding an event on Friday and Saturday in London to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the CD-ROM. We'll be showing some of the original material and talking about the thinking of it at the time as well as a panel on Saturday looking at the evolution of the interface. Our plan is to make the original CD-ROM image available for download for media arts scholars/archeologists too.

All the details are here: http://antirom.com

#VIRAL @ Boston Cyberart Gallery
The history and cultural assemblage of viral digital culture has morphed significantly since the Frankfurt Museum for Applied Art added viral code to their permanent collection in 2002 and hosted the ground-breaking “I Love You – computer_viruses_hacker_culture” exhibition. A fascination with viruses, as previously witnessed in the Slovenian Pavilion at the 2001 Venice Biennale, has seeped into contemporary culture; it has “gone viral”, so to speak. In #VIRAL, this evolution is explored through the various forms in which digital art exists and through the many expressed applications of the word “viral” and “virus”.

Aufsmaul Suppe 1:05pm Feb 25
New issue (55/56) of Germany's only journal dedicated entirely to film history FILMBLATT. The new issue explores the film production during the years of heavy inflation in the Weimar Republic, a rather unknown production by Béla Balász (1 + 1 = 3) and two approaches to Berlin's transformations in the 1960s and 1970s. - The journal is in need of subscriptions. Should you be working with an institution or a library that does not hold a subscription, now would be a great opportunity to change that...
