Expanded Cirkulacija 2 in Alkatraz gallery: Concourse = Discourse

24 May 10 20:00 > 11 Jul 10 20:00 performative part: May 24th to 28th, 2010
exhibiting part: June 1st to 11th, 2010 


You are kindly invited to get a taste of advanced art practices from the local and international technologic art cuisine. Concourse meant that applications for participation of self-initiative individuals within the Cirkulacija 2 platform was possible. A week-long perfromative event is another in the series of rehearsals in social behaviour. The artistic meaning can most easily be sought in the aesthetic languages and presentations of the participating individuals ("we are what we do...").

You are specially invited to the central event: Eventing on Tuesday, May 25th, 2010 after 20.00. 

In the first week the timespace coordinates (the discourse) will be determined by: Boštjan Leskovšek, Stefan Doepner, Ksenija Čerče, Borut Savski, Reni Hofmueller, Effi Tanner, Neven Korda, Maja Smrekar, Marko Košnik, bridA (Sendi Mango, Tom Kerševan, Jurij Pavlica), Aluviana, Milan Kristl, Bojan Andjelković, ManRa (Matjaž Manček and Rafaella Picollo), Damien Stewart, Kolektiv Federacija / Gregor Kamnikar and others.

Every day from noon to midnight there will be various activities: presentations, performances, projections, collaborations, participations and preparations of the performative situations and exhibition objects.

Topics: participatory projects, interactive and generative systems, cybernetic approaches and its derivations, bio-art, bio-diversity, analogue/ fuzzy logic, nano technology... and art. Media: sensors, physical interfaces, instruments, software interfaces, sound, music, sound-art, noise, algoritmic sound, generative video, videographics, robotics, arduino, doepfer, midi, netTV, netcast/ broadcasts to airwaves of Radio Študent Ljubljana.  More details will follow shortly.  

Cirkulacija 2 is an intermedia collective platform trying to define the area of the so-called "total art". The basic media of it is the all-encompassing parallel/serial event, that emphasises the importance of the social matter formed by the participants involved. Improvisation and adaptation in real-time and real-space are crucial. The root of aesthetic outputs are the so-called intermedia activities, which are commonly regarded as technologic art, but we accept these definitions when understood in widely metaphoric way - the technology is also the technique of interpersonal communication and self-regulation. The ideologic basis can be found in the vocabularies of cybernetic and systems theories. These deal also with the definitions of "alive", "autonomous" - therefore: self-organization, self-identification and self-production.

For the work done so-far Cirkulacija 2 recently received a diploma Zlata ptica (Golden bird) - from the part of the Liberal academy - for the achievements in the field of music.
