A JOINT EVENT OF ARS ELECTRONICA LINZ AND BASIS WIEN

Venue: Beijing Art Museum of the Imperial City (BAMOIC)

June 10 and 11, 2008
Moderated by Mr. Li Zhenhua, Project manager/ producer, Synthetic Times

PART I
 2 – 6 pm, June 10, 2008
Artistic practices have changed within the last 30 years: Many artists are not working alone anymore, the artist and specially the media artist is working together with technicians, programmers, scientists, theoreticians, more and more inspiring collaboratives are being founded. Art - and the art market - have gone global. How do Western and Chinese players in the art field deal with these new conditions of production in the era of cultural globalization? Which new strategies does this imply for the production, curation and documentation & archiving of art in East and West?
These are the questions Ars Electronica Linz and basis wien want to discuss with artists, curators and archivists in two panels on June 10 + 11, 2008.

HOW TO SELECT NEW MEDIA ART

Li Zhenhua (CN, artist, curator)
Katja Kwastek (AT, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research, researcher)

PART II
 2 – 6 pm, June 11,2008
Why to archive and document art? Do archives and documentations create the »art history of tomorrow«? Do they give more visibility to artists? What about the sustainability of (digital) archives?
What does »archiving & documenting« of art mean in different cultural traditions, in the global context and under new production conditions?
Who is archiving & documenting? The community? Or institutions? Or should the artist practice self-archiving? Who decides about what should be archived?
