If only inflight entertainement included internet


I am going to be offline during the 20+ hours of a trip to Brazil for the arte.mov festival (btw any tips on exhibition to do see in Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo are more than welcome), i’m going to miss the broadband and wonder why no one has fine tuned teletransportation yet. In the meantime, please, do me a favour and broadsurf for me:

Art Fag City reported the cancellation of the Chelsea Art Museum’s exhibition, Dialectics of Terror, and uploaded online the PDF of the catalog of a show that would have been fascinating.

Remember i mentioned the gorgeous catalog of the exhibition Nowhere/Now/Here in the interview i recently did with El Ultimo Grito? The LABoral people have decided to make it available for everyone to download. Scroll down this page and open the PDF. Because they are so generous (or maybe mad?) they distribute another of their latest catalog, Homo Ludens Ludens. Once again, scroll down and enjoy 557 pages about game art, play and contemporary culture.

Let me take you back to the ’60s with the catalog of the exhibition Cybernetic Serendipity. Yes, madam!

Talking of which, María Fernández wrote an essay on Gordon Pask: Cybernetic Polymath. That’s one of the many texts you can read on new media art magazine a minima.

John Frazer‘s 1995 book An Evolutionary Architecture can also be yours in a PDF format. The volume traces the experiments in computational architecture going back to the 1960’s.

For those of you who haven’t downloaded it yet, here’s a link to the PDF of ‘The Internet of Things. A critique of ambient technology and the all-seeing network of RFID’ by Rob van Kranenburg.

I recently found out that Tate has uploaded on you tube dozens of videos of artist interviews, exhibition tours and other contemporary art niceties.

iCI has some charming interviews of artists you might like: Nina Katchadourian, Jim Campbell, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Trevor Paglen, etc. They call it Inside the Studio.

I think that’s it for today. See you on the other side of the world!
