A promise of Internationalism?

Screenshot-2018-3-19 Live Art and Telematics The Promise of Internationalism - Art of the Networked PracticeRandall Packer invited Maria Chatzichristodoulou (AKA Maria X) to be the opening keynote speaker for the Art of the Networked Practice Online Symposium because as a performance scholar she is uniquely committed to chronicling, critiquing and contextualizing live Internet art.

In an article called Live Art and Telematics: The Promise of Internationalism Randall writes that Chatzichristodoulou is bringing to our attention the “challenging restrictions placed upon the free circulation of people and ideas” that questions the utopic prediction of the “global village” more than fifty years ago by Marshall McLuhan.

He expects Maria’s probing analysis will stir up an interesting debate during the international symposium. ( March 29  – 31. Free to attend online or in Singapore. )

A promise of Internationalism? I don’t remember – Very curious to hear, and discuss with, Maria on the 29th, when we ( me and  Antye Greie, Helen Varley Jamieson, Soyung Lee, Hương Ngô, Daniel Pinheiro, and Igor Stromajer) will also do a performance called Online En-semble – Entanglement Training.

In the Virtual Archive for Performing Arts (AVAE), written in Spanish, Zara Rodríguez Prieto analyses besides, (page 165 – 170), the online performance project I did with Martina Ruhsam (2014 – ….), Blast Theory‘s Karen, and Miranda July‘s Somebody as examples of the different ways conversation and discourse participate in online performative practices.

Resumen
Este texto analiza el concepto de participación en prácticas artísticas performativas realizadas a través de internet. Mediante el análisis de tres obras el estudio aborda la idea de participación desde la conversación como dispositivo y desde la construcción del discurso a partir de la interacción en red. En ese proceso se atiende también a la fragmentación temporal de la conversación, impuesta por las características propias de la interacción virtual y a sus implicaciones en la creación de discurso en un espacio compartido.
Abstract
The text examines the concept of participation in performative artistic practices which have taken place through the Internet. Analyzing three pieces, this study addresses the idea of participation focusing on conversation as a device and on the forms of discourse developed since the beginning of networked interaction. The article also explores the temporal fragmentation of conversation imposed by the characteristics of virtual interaction and its implications for the creation of discourse in a shared space.

What is visible and what is not? What escapes visibility? What (is) resisted the exhibition? What belongs to each temporal layer of reality / fiction? From these main issues (online meeting, how to be together in the distance, not becoming dominant, the conversation and the agency of objects) arise another series of secondary issues that affect, in one way or another, any online relationship such as the creation of a shared intimate space, the contingency, the corporal relationship, the silences and the fragmented communication.
