3G Constallations #10 + méthodologie

One year ago we: the group 3G(enerations) Alix Desaubliaux, Pascale Barret and Annie Abrahams, started a research project called Constallations. Using challenges and surprises, we defied each other in nine sessions of what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory and Alix performative & collaborative explorations.

ISELP, Institut d’Art Contemporain, invited 3G to come to Brussels for their 10th, this time real-life, session.
Saturday, Mai 25, 16h you are welcome to meet the three artists and Sandra Bébié-Valérian of OUDEIS at the Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels.
Sandra will give a short talk where she analyses the project in the frame of OUDEIS’ Autorama project. Pascale, Alix and Annie will present their recently written Methodology of Constallations* and will try to translate it’s essence to the real space of the exhibition Waiting to blossom *Constallations by Pascale Barret.
Could be an object, a performance, a reading, a text, an installation …. or a mix of all this.

Constallations is devoid of a goal and has no predetermined path. Constallations is what we are when we give up our personal objectives and, when, based on our own history and skills, we tackle a challenge prepared by one of the group.
Constallations is made of travels through things one doesn’t control, of jumps in the void. Constallations is an exploration full of unexpected discoveries.

Constallations is a learning tool / a practice radically open to everything.
Constallations is a concrete utopia – on a small scale, and temporary, it must be said – but it is, and so carries a hope for a different society.
It’s a perspective.
Constallations is a path, an adventure, a chemistry, a soup that upsets habits and creates links.

* The Methodology of Constallations will also be available in English and French on the Constallations website after the 25th.

Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands

Nice to find out my work Being Human (1997 – 2007) is part of the Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands, yes!
With among others Michel Waisvisz, Martine Neddam, Peter Struycken, JODI, Peter Luining, Jan Robert Leegte, Steina, Jeffrey Shaw …

The Digital Canon was compiled by LIMA media art platform in 2018, in collaboration with Josephine Bosma, Martijn van Boven, Annet Dekker, Sandra Fauconnier and Jan Robert Leegte.
The primary objective of the project is to add these digital works to the collective cultural memory and to fuel the discussion about the selection and preservation of digital art. 

Experts from the field of digital culture selected twenty of the most prominent and influential works made on Dutch soil by artists who lived or worked here over a long period of time.

Being Human is the name of a collection of dynamic, interlinked, net specific works in which Annie Abrahams explores the possibilities and limits of online communication.

Annie Abrahams in Wikifémia

Wikifémia met en lumière des biographies de femmes remarquables telles qu’elles figurent dans les articles de Wikipédia. Cette programme, basée sur l’arborescence de la version francophone de l’encyclopédie en ligne, offre aux visiteuses une visualisation documentée de centaines de femmes qui ont contribuée à l’histoire de l’informatique. Les articles sont traduites en française, c’est-à-dire entièrement à la féminine, afin de démasculiniser autant la langue française que l’histoire.
