WORDTOYS. Presentación y navegación comentada a cargo de Belén Gache

Martes 3 de octubre – 18.30 hs.
Espacio Fundación Telefónica
Arenales 1540
Buenos Aires

Los Wordtoys consisten en una antología de trabajos de literatura experimental realizados por Belén Gache especialmente para Internet entre los años 1996 y 2006. Enmarcados en el contexto de la net poesía, con raíces en las vanguardias históricas que enfatizaban la materialidad (ya sea sonora o visual) de los signos y cuyo trabajo del lenguaje se continuó con la poesía conceptual y la poesía concreta, estos trabajos están construidos a partir de estrategias de aleatoriedad, permutabilidad, proceso, juego y reescritura.
Belén Gache publicó las novelas Lunas eléctricas para las noches sin luna (Sudamericana 2004), Divina anarquía (Sudamericana 1999) y Luna India (Planeta 1994). Su novela La vida y obra de Ambrosia Pons fue finalista en el XXIII Premio Herralde de Novela (Barcelona, 2005). Ha publicado numerosos ensayos de literatura y artes visuales entre los que se destaca Escrituras nómades, del libro perdido al hipertexto ( Gijón, Trea, 2006). Es Licenciada en Historia del Arte y posee un Master en Análisis del Discurso (Universidad de Buenos Aires).

International Conference Remediating Literature: Call for Papers

An international conference on literature and the new media entitled Re-mediating Literature will take place at Utrecht University (the Netherlands) 4-6 july 2007, with keynote speakers Katherine Hayles, Marie-Laure Ryan, Jan Baetens, and Samuel Weber. Our website features all relevant information concerning the conference including the call for papers (deadline is November 6, 2006): http://www2.let.uu.nl/remediatingliterature/ (use Internet Explorer; if not consult the text below).

The conference revolves around the following issues:
Recent developments in digital and electronic media have stimulated new theoretical reflections on the nature of media as such and on the way in which they evolve across time. The particular aim of this conference is to examine how recent technological changes have affected the ‘old’ medium of literature.

Multimedial and interactive texts, digitalized archives, cyberpoetics, and technological innovations such as foldable screens: together these have influenced the production and reception of literature, along with the ways in which we think about writing and reading. These ongoing developments call for a critical examination both of the relations between literature and the new media, and of the relations between literary studies and media studies.

The concept of ‘remediation’ in our title thus has a double thrust. Firstly, it refers to the transformative exchanges that have occurred in the past, and continue to occur, between literature and new media: how has digitilization affected literature as a cultural medium? Secondly, it indicates a relocation of literary studies within the broader field of (new) media studies: how could literary studies profit from the various analytical tools developed in (new) media studies and conversely, how could our understanding of earlier phases in the evolution of the literary medium contribute to our understanding of present developments? By working on both these issues, we hope to locate the place of literature within the milieu of modern media networks and technologies, but also to relocate the aims and practices of literary studies within the field of (new) media studies.

Main themes
A. New technologies and literary practice: the state of the field: Will literature continue to develop as a schizophrenic medium, a hard medium of printed matter and an unstable medium of electronic data at the same time, or will it fork out in one of two directions? How is digitilisation affecting reading practices and the circulation of literary texts? What new forms of ‘inter-medial’ and multimedial literature are emerging? B. Literature and the new media: the longer view: What new light do recent developments throw on the history of literature as a cultural medium and, conversely, how might insights from the history of the literary medium contribute to our understanding of recent developments? How can literary history be rewritten in conjunction with such media technologies? C. Media compatibilities and competitions: new media hardly ever completely subject and annihilate older media. Rather, the two tend to co-exist, each taking on different tasks and responsibilities (cf. film and the novel in the earlier twentieth century). At the same time, however, they often interrupt and compete with each other (cf. television and the digital in the later twentieth century). How can this duplicity of compatibility and competition be mapped and analyzed, and what are the insights that such analyses might yield into media formations as techno-cultural formations? D. Disciplinary relocations: will literary studies become a branch of media studies in the foreseeable future – and if so, how? Will literary studies profit from such a re-location, and how will this re-location affect its objects and methodologies?

Abstract submissions
Topics:
*Changing conceptions and manifestations of the text from print to the digital age;

*Cyberpoetics and the hypertextual in digitalized and printed form;

*Remediation as a cultural process: how have different media reworked and incorporated each other, and how can such reworkings be theorized in terms of cultural memory and media archeology? This could, for instance, focus on the representation of new media in literature (cf. James Joyce, William Gibson), and the way in which these representations have in turn been stored in the practices of such new media;

*Copy-cats and mutations: how have textual, visual, aural, digital, and performative media functioned alongside each other, how have they co-existed? Which tasks and aspects do old media delegate to new media, or which tasks and aspects do new media copy form old media, and how has this changed the status and identity of the old medium?

*Old narratives, new games: narrative and narrative transformations across media;

*Technological inventions and their effects on the object of literary studies: the impact of new mediations of the literary through foldable screens and other flexible, wearable, handheld paper displays, as well as mobile acoustic networks;

*Institutional remediations I: web publishing, accessibility and canonization of hyperfiction, funding of literary projects on the internet, the emergence of new forms and practices of literary criticism on the internet, as well as the institutional development of new strategies and conventions in editing techniques;

*Institutional remediations II: literary studies from cultural to media studies: will we witness, in the foreseeable future, a ‘post-human’ paradigm shift in the humanities that redirects our focus from cultural studies to media studies?

Submission guidelines:
Abstracts may be submitted as of September 1, 2006, through the following mailing address, indicating the applicant’s name, email address and present academic function:

remediatingliterature@let.uu.nl

Invitation: 50 YEARS OF CONCRETE POETRY from Clemente Padin

This invitation is directed not only to the great community of visual poets of the whole world but and above all to specialists and lovers of poetry. At the end of this year, 2006, we will celebrate 50 years of the birth of one of the most important tendencies of visual poetry of the world: we refer to Concrete Poetry.

In December, 1956, the historic Art Concrete expositions began in Brazil giving birth to one of the most important artistic movements in the world in the second half of the XX century. The participant poets in those expositions were: Decio Pignatari, Augusto and Haroldo de Campos, Ronaldo Azeredo, Ferreira Gullar and Wlademir Dias-Pino. The first exposition took place in San Pablo, from 4 to 18 December, in the Art Modern Museum (MAM) and the next one was inaugurated in Rio de Janeiro, in February 7, 1957, in the vestibule of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Brazil.

Concrete Poetry arose, simultaneously, in Europe and in Latin American: in 1952 Noigandres group was founded in Sao Paulo; in 1953 the manifesto “For Concrete Poetry” of Oyvind Falström appeared in Sweden and in 1953 “Constelaciones” of Eugen Gomringer, the Swiss-Bolivian poet, secretary of the Superior School of the Form of Ulm, Switzerland, heiress of the German Bahaus, appears in Switzerland. Gomringer and Pignatari were the one who coined the term Concrete Poetry in 1955.

In homage to these outstanding events we invite you to send us notes, commentary, bibliography, photos, poems or documents that remember those historic moments to form a body of knowledge and works in relation to one of the last poetic movements we have known. Send material to Clemente Padin´s email (7w1k4nc9@adinet.com.uy). Subsequently, around November 2006, the selected material will be added to BOEK861, the website of Cesar Reglero, at the time of the Colloquium on the 50 anniversary of concrete poetry that will be carried out in the University of Stuttgart, Germany, from 23 to 26 November, 2006.

The pictures and poems should be no larger than 300 KB in JPEG files of high resolution and, the texts on DIN A4, or letter-sized pages in Word files. Deadline for receipt: 10 November 2006.

CONVOCATORIA: 50 AÑOS DE LA POESIA CONCRETA

Esta convocatoria está dirigida no sólo a la gran comunidad de poetas visuales del mundo entero sino y sobre todo a los estudiosos y amantes de la poesía. A finales de este año, 2006, se cumplen los 50 años del nacimiento de una de las tendencias de la poesía visual más importantes del mundo: nos referimos a la Poesía Concreta.

En Diciembre de 1956 comienzan las históricas exposiciones de Arte Concreto en el Brasil dando comienzo a uno de los movimientos artísticos de mayor predicamento en el mundo en la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Los poetas participantes en aquellas exposiciones fueron: Decio Pignatari, Augusto y Haroldo de Campos, Ronaldo Azeredo, Ferreira Gullar y Wlademir Dias-Pino. La primer exposición se realiza en San Pablo, del 4 al 18 de Diciembre de 1956, en el Museo de Arte Moderna (MAM) y la segunda se inauguró en Río de Janeiro el 7 de Febrero de 1957 en el zaguán del Ministerio de Educación y Cultura del Brasil.

La Poesía Concreta surge, simultáneamente, en Europa y en Latinoamérica: en 1952 se funda el grupo Noigandres en São Paulo; en 1953 aparece el manifiesto “For Concrete Poetry” de Oyvind Falström en Suecia y en 1953 aparece en Suiza “Constelaciones” de Eugen Gomringer, poeta suizo-boliviano, secretario de la Escuela Superior de la Forma de Ulm, Suiza, heredera del Bahaus alemán. Fueron precisamente Gomringer y Pignatari quienes llaman Poesía Concreta en 1955 al naciente movimiento poético.

En homenaje a tan destacados eventos le invitamos a enviar, a Clemente Padin, por email (7w1k4nc9@adinet.com.uy), toda nota, comentario, bibliografía, foto, poema o documento que recuerde aquellos sucesos y contribuya a formar un cuerpo o summa de conocimientos y obras en relación a una de las últimas corrientes poéticas que hemos conocido. Posteriormente, hacia Noviembre 2006, el material seleccionado será incorporado a la website BOEK 861 de César Reglero coincidentemente con la realización del Coloquio sobre el nacimiento de la poesía concreta que se realizará en la Universidad de Stuttgart, Alemania, del 23 al 26 de Noviembre.

Las imágenes no podrán sobrepasar los 300 KB en archivos JPEG de alta resolución y, las notas, las 5 páginas DIN A4, en archivos Word. Fecha límite de recepción: 10 de Noviembre 2006.

New Funding Opportunity for Arts Writers

Initiated by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and administered by Creative Capital, The Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant is a three-year pilot program designed to support critical writing on contemporary visual art through project-based grants issued directly to individual authors. The first program of its type, it was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. Through awards for books, articles, and work in new and alternative media, The Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant aims to honor and encourage:
• Writing about art that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise
• Writing about art in which a keen engagement with the present is infused with an appreciation of the historical
• Writing about art that is neither afraid to take a stand, nor content to deliver authoritative pronouncements, but seeks rather to pose questions and generate new possibilities for thinking, seeing, and making
• Writing about art that is sensitive to both the importance and difficulty of situating aesthetic objects within their broader social and political contexts
• Writing about art that does not dilute or sidestep complex ideas but renders accessible their meaning and value
• Writing about art that challenges creatively the limits of existing conventions, without valorizing novelty as an end in itself.
Approximately twenty grants will be awarded per annual cycle, ranging from $3,000–$50,000. Art historians, artists, critics, curators, journalists, and practitioners from other fields that engage contemporary visual art and culture are welcome to apply.

The Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant will open for on-line submissions on August 14, 2006. The deadline for grant applications is September 18, 2006.
