Reariting a conversation between Rhea Myers & Mckenzie Wark 

fascist encryption, conspiracies, why own?, provenance, deskilling, collecting, glitch, commons, civil liberties, ownership

Friday March 4 2022. A reariting* based on a conversation between Rhea Myers & Mckenzie Wark published on OUTLAND.
With Brian Droitcour, Ruth Catlow, Gretta Louw, Daniel Temkin and Annie Abrahams.

Some image snippets:

Because I, Annie, felt Myers & Wark‘s conversation contained a lot of interesting points that I didn’t really understand, I organized a reariting* of its publication on OUTLAND. I was/am struggling to comprehend issues around NFT’s, chains and DAO’s, and hoped reariting the conversation would clear up my mind.
It worked, I learned a lot.
A big thanks to my very generous co-reariters.
Here is the .pdf to check us out:

*Reariting is the act of simultaneous reading and writing together on the Internet. Reariting is a feminist technique to think through a text together. While reading a text, all participants use the same framapad to write their reactions and asides related to the text, thus exploring their understandings and misunderstandings of it. Reariting is about thinking and learning, finding links, soft and blind spots, returning and kneading. It always starts somewhere in the middle, and somehow never ends.

Thus the Reading Club manifests itself as a facilitator for a diffractive, distributed intelligence on-the-fly, creating text and relational patterns that do not depend on canons. It generates creative and unexpected “outcomes”. These are, in my opinion, not so much the texts produced, as the “diffractive moments” experienced by the reariters. Diffractive Reading in the Reading Club, Annie Abrahams, 2019.

In the article with Emmanuel Guez: The machinic author, published in JCWS (Journal of Creative Writing Studies) we formulate it a bit differently:
She assists in an event that allows for diffractive moments (5) – i.e “a mapping of interference” which take her out of self reflexivity, out of systemised subjectivity, out of a world that only reproduces what it knows already into an intra-active diffractive worlding (6). The machnic author revealed herself as queer.

instants – archives

merci à Luc Dall’armellina pour la capture

Tellement contente d’avoir retrouvé sur un vieux DD les fichiers html des InstantS; un projet d’écriture en ligne, proposé par moi pour le site panoplie .org ( 2006-2009).
Les archives, les InstantPortraits de Nicolas Frespech, Jacques Perconte, Jean Pierre Balpe, Xavier Leton, Ami Barak, Olga Kisseleva, Marc Veyrat, Annick Bureaud, André Lozano, Annie Abrahams, David-Olivier Lartigaud, Etienne Cliquet, Philippe Castellin, Victoria Welby, Anne Laforet, Albertine Meunier, Luc Dall’armellina, Cyril Thomas et Antoine Moreau peuvent être lus à nouveau.

Je rêve de pouvoir faire un livre, un jour, avec cette écriture si particulière. Qu’est-ce qu’elle nous dit de l’époque que nous vivions? En quoi elle se distingue de tout autre écriture?
Est-ce son caractère performatif qui la rend autre. (AA 2008 – 2022)

Pendant un mois un invité; artiste, écrivain, critique, chercheur ou autre activité en rapport avec internet, utilisait son portable et/ou ordinateur pour envoyer du texte au site de panoplie.org. Ce texte envoyé était instantanément visible sur la première page du site. A l’invité de décider comment il utilisera cet outil, cette présence par l’instant. La totalité des textes envoyés par l’invité formera son InstantPortrait.

InstantS était dérivé du projet Instants RSS de Nicolas Frespech, dans lequel Nicolas détourne un fil RSS* pour comme il le dit lui-même “vous envoyer des pensées, des morceaux de ma journée, des éléments, des liens hypertextes, tous ayant comme sujet l’heure très précise à laquelle cette information a été envoyée.”

*Un flux RSS ou fil RSS (“RSS feed” en anglais), sigle de Really Simple Syndication (souscription vraiment simple), ou de Rich Site Summary (Sommaire d’un site enrichi) est un format de syndication de contenu Web. Ce système permet de diffuser les nouvelles des sites d’information ou des blogs, ce qui permet de rapidement consulter ces dernières sans visiter le site.http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Really_Simple_Syndication.

the significance of maintaining online access to obsolete Adobe Shockwave Flash (SWF) files through the source code

Anna Mladentseva wrote an interesting article on conservation, archiving and performance of flash-based pieces. She mentions how I kept what was left of Karaoke (2006) on it’s original page, and included at the same page the Rhizome’s Conifer archive of the piece working but also have the original .swf and .fla files available on the website.

On conservation of netart, archiving, code and performance.

Anna Mladentseva (2022): Responding to obsolescence in Flash-based net art: a case study on migrating Sinae Kim’s Genesis, Journal of the Institute of Conservation, DOI: 10.1080/19455224.2021.2007412
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/19455224.2021.2007412

This article outlines an alternative method of migration facilitated by reverse engineering techniques—specifically decompilation—and foregrounds the significance of maintaining online access to the obsolete Adobe Shockwave Flash (SWF) files through the source code. On this premise, the source code is re-imagined as a site for further re-enactment, allowing a departure from its current role as a marker of ‘authenticity’.

Féminisme, performance, thèse

Le féminisme dans les vies et les œuvres d’artistes de la performance en Europe et en Amérique du Nord entre 1980 et 2010.

Merci Floris Taton. Le 29 janvier 2018 nous avions un entretien de 1h37 via skype. Enfin je peux te lire.

Résumé :
Depuis les années 1970, le féminisme inspire les artistes de la performance. Cette décennie pionnière est très documentée, mais qu’en est-il pour les trois décennies suivantes ? Le féminisme dans les vies et les œuvres d’artistes de la performance en Europe et en Amérique du Nord entre 1980 et 2010 propose, par le biais de vingt-cinq artistes dans dix-sept pays un état des lieux du féminisme de la deuxième et de la troisième vague. L’objectif de la recherche est d’éclairer les artistes de la performance et leurs productions au regard d’enjeux féministes. Trois volets sont abordés : les prémices des parcours des artistes, les sources et formes de l’influence féministe et sa place dans les œuvres.

La puissance de l’art d’Annie Abrahams est aussi forte que son travail est sous-évalué.” :)

Van Gogh TV – Distant Feelings

12/11 – 05/12 2021, Van Gogh TV, Piazza Virtuale*, exhibition** at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin and online.

For the first time now, Künstlerhaus Bethanien is presenting the material remaining from that large-scale art project in an exhibition. Original works, video recordings, sketches, plans, photos, and other historical material will be on view, alongside technical relics of “Piazza virtuale”.

Other works by Mieko Shiomi, Miranda July, Fred Forest, Yann van der Cruyssen and Annie Abrahams/Daniel Pinheiro will also be shown in the exhibition in order to contextualize the work of Van Gogh TV.

Distant Feeling(s) – Van Gogh TV installed in the exhibition.

* Piazza Virtuale by the artists’ group Van Gogh TV was not only the biggest art project ever to have been on TV – from a contemporary perspective, the project was also a precursor to present-day social media. The ground-breaking television event, which took place during documenta IX in 1992, was a TV experiment in which users could create media content themselves.

Open Publish – licriture “Ecoute”

Le vendredi 19 novembre 21h Paris Constallationsss* propose un atelier de licriture. pendant le Open Publishing Fest***  (OPF nov 8-19)

L’atelier licriture commencera avec une explication et harmonisation d’une durée de 10 minutes. Ensuite, les participant.e.s se rendront sur un framapad où ells trouveront un lien vers le texte, qu’ells commencent à lire individuellement. Sur le pad ells rédigeront leurs notes, réflexions et digressions les unes pêle-mêle parmi les autres et ells réagiront à celles des autres participant.e.s. Après 40 min. de licriture, nous nous reconnecterons pour discuter du processus.

Il ne s’agit pas de produire un texte ensemble, mais d’utiliser la licriture comme une technique pour mettre la pensée en commun.

***Open Publishing Fest is a decentralized public event that brings together communities supporting open source software, open content, and open publishing models.
Held over two weeks in November this year, Open Publishing Fest will feature discussions, demos, and performances that showcase our paths toward a more open world.
Open Knowledge ≈/= Open Publishing ?
