    The «Brainstorm» schedule will consist of 10vsessions, 15-20 minutes each, starting at the top of every hour from 12 CET to 20 CET. 

    Each session will invite two specialists to reflect upon the in-betweenness of two proposed topics (things, objects, concepts, or phenomenon).

    Two “keywords” will be announced at the start of each session for the discussion to begin. Our hope is for each session to inspire exchange, and further investigation, and bring a breath of fresh air to each others’ research practices.

    Gabriel Zea 

     

    Un podcast de entrevistas con artistas y demás personas que trabajan en el campo del arte en Colombia.

    Juan Covelli es un artista bogotano que trabaja con medios digitales para realizar preguntas sobre el patrimonio y las prácticas coloniales. Juan está pasando la cuarentena en su casa en Bogotá junto acompañado de su pareja y sus gatos. En esta charla nos cuenta sobre  la percepción del tiempo en la actualidad y como ha cambiado desde que inició el confinamiento. También nos habla del uso que le da a Internet, que en su caso es una herramienta que usa como medio de comunicación y al mismo tiempo es materia para algunas de sus obras. Finalmente nos invita a reflexionar sobre los dispositivos de comunicación y la biopolítica que impone sobre nosotros los usuarios.

    Museo de Pereira 

    marzo/Julio

    Las obras exhibidas en “Simbiosis Entrópica” invitan al espectador a establecer conexiones e interpretaciones, que preceden la narrativa tradicional y el discurso hermenéutico de la historia del arte, para de esta manera posibilitar una nueva forma de disertación y renovar la experiencia contemplativa. La tecnología nos permite superar algunos de los obstáculos, que la visión humana no puede categorizar y entender.

     

    Los dispositivos tecnológicos nos ayudan a trascender las limitaciones perceptuales; esta forma de maniobrar ha cambiado los procesos cognitivos y se convierte en un modelo alternativo para comprender la dimensión en la que estamos inmersos y por consiguiente reconocer la existencia de otras formas de vida. Aceptar la complejidad de la materia, nos permitirá descubrir una extensa serie de Simbiosis; tanto orgánicas como sintéticas.

  • Well Now WTF?

    Curated by Faith Holland, Lorna Mills, and Wade Wallerstein

    Hosted by Silicon Valet

     

    Museums are closed. School is cancelled. The world is shut off and we’re stuck indoors. All the bread has been sold and Twitter has lost its mind. Fox News is killing off its own demographic. While everything is cancelled, why not have a show?

     

    With everything going on, we ask ourselves: Well Now WTF? We have no answer, but we do know how to make GIFs. We can come together and use the creative tools at our disposal to build a space for release outside of anxiety-inducing news cycles and banal social media feeds.
     

    Well Now WTF? is as much an art show as a community gathering. Beginning with the opening on April 4 and throughout the exhibition, we will hold online events on the site itself and via Twitch where people can gather and talk as they would normally for a physical exhibition.

    «Digital Utopias»

    The Yeltsin Center 

    Yekaterinburg

    Russia 

    07—15.03

    Pixel fest is a new initiative aimed at broadening the frameworks of digital media art in urban environment of Yekaterinburg and creating a communication field for which the Yeltsin Center media façade will be a gigantic screen for up to date video-art works of artists from around the world.

    Global technolgization radically changes our everyday life. Technological future scenarios often do not bode well. The future is uncertain and futurologists frequently come up with pessimistic models of evolution of our planet and society. We encourage you to reflect both on “positive” ideas and speculative theories related to future: alternative worlds and utopian concepts.

    Esta exhibición indaga sobre formas de ocupación y emplazamiento on/off-line, sus manifestaciones y temporalidades. Los procesos que hacen parte de esta muestra son búsquedas sobre la cualidad de estar presente o próximo dentro de la digitalidad, y en algunos casos, vivencias desde la pantalla. Partiendo de aproximaciones al paisaje (y sus manifestaciones virtuales), a través del tiempo en simultáneo (con lags), hasta formas de habitar la web, buscamos acercarnos a posibles definiciones y aplicaciones del presentness, de la vivencia de un momento a la distancia, o en delay.

    V Space is the online version of the museum. It is only available in two cases:

    • 1- A physic presentation of the museum.

    • 2- A special online happening.

    The space has been designed as a metaphor of the surface of the disk where the artworks are floating to be shown by the spectator. In the disk, as in the real one, you could find around, 100 files with .jpg, .mp4, .html, mp3, .gif, .fbx, and so on different kinds of digital files formats.

    The visit is organized by a typology of files, just click on the format and you will see the artist related to that one. Click on the artist for visiting his gallery.

    Le musée des arts super modernes est une plateforme d’artistes internationaux, un espace ouvert sur la création digitale, une alternative décentralisée à l’élitisme de l’art contemporain.

    "DUOMO in Progress" est une exposition regroupant une sélection de grands noms de la scène artistique française et internationale contemporaine, dont des pionniers de l'art numérique, qui créent des images à partir de code informatique.
    Une importance particulière a été accordée à la recherche (quasi archéologique) en ligne d'oeuvres des origines, la plupart interactives, afin de les préserver.

  • Cartographies

    Exhibition of moving image

    Ugly Duck 

    London 

    MARCH 22ND-24TH 2019

    ‘Cartographies’ is an exhibition of moving image artworks. It explores the technologies of mapping and the mapping of technologies in the contemporary world. How do we cognitively and physically situate ourselves in modern cartographic networks? What are our terms of engagement with this global and unthinkably complex infrastructure? Where do we stand?

    Google Earth, Street View, GPS systems, 3D modelling, algorithms and machine learning all serve the contemporary cartographic imperative – to remap the world as a dense, overlapping weave of digital traces turned into exploitable data. The artworks featured in this exhibition critically engage with these technologies to find alternative ways of being in and through cartographic networks.

  • New materiality & the digital artifact

    Artist Talk

    Friday November 23rd 2018

    UCL Archaeology department 

    UCL MAL is pleased to invite artist Juan Covelli to give a talk as part of our evening seminar series. 

     

    Covelli’s concerns are connected to the archive’s potential of being a tool for activism and art-making against digital colonialism. He is fascinated by the digital archive as a way of democratizing the object and liberating it from physical and geographical constraints. Today we experience a paradigm shift from perspective to the realm of volume. The rise of scanning and 3D technologies has made this change ever more relevant. For Covelli, the significance lies in the reproduction and production of objects where repetition becomes difference. If we are able to reproduce endless exact copies, what happens with the original?

  • New Materialities in the Digital Age - Exhibition

    Harlesden High Street Gallery

     

    Nov 13 - Dec 13

     

    The digital era offers multiple possibilities surrounding the production, simplification, automation and creation: this has opened the door for new materialities that not only respond to the physicality of an object but also to its processes and exchanges developed from digitisation.

    Taking as a starting point the theories created by James Bridle and the New Aesthetic Tumblr project, Christiane Paul and the concept of Neomateriality, Bernard Stiegler and his ideas behind Hypermateriality and Timur Si-Quin’s perception of Metamaterality, this talk will look into these concepts and their incidence in the creative world, design and mass production....

     

    Exhibiting artists include:
    Bob Bicknell-Knight- Juan Covelli- Jayson Kym Haebich - Steve Gee - Tom Johnson - Cassie McQuater - Bex Massey - Jon Rafman - Anna Sebastian - Lewk Wilmshurst - Laura Yuile

    Nov 13 - Dec 13

     

    We have moved from a philosophical exploration of space to, in the mid-twentieth century, anexploration of 'outer' space. Even in its titling, the space race apparently pushed our understanding

    of this particular ontology of space to its limits. Furthermore, we have managed to reconfigure what this word means in the digital, especially to digital natives who have grown only knowing the plasticity of ‘space’ and its various uses. Assimilating and expanding the remit of the existing

    lexicon to new sociopolitical concerns is an age old but dangerous game, one that allows systemic changes to go somewhat unquestioned, to be approached and treated as natural...

  • Every day- World Art

    Hospital Prison University Archive

    Nov 8 - Dec 20

     

    All are welcome to the opening of the ninth display at the Hospital Prison University Archive departing from the communist educator Rudolf Broby-Johansen and his popular book Everyday Art - World Art (Hverdagskunst verdenskunst) published in 1942. The project has been developed in collaboration with the art historian Ellef Prestæter and the graphic artist Åse Eg Jørgensen.


    Everyday Art - World Art was ground breaking both for Broby-Johansen and for the illustrated art book. The publication is an introduction to European style history in which Broby pedagogically and polemically lays out the development of art from the Ice Age to ‘today’ (1942).

     

    The exhibition also presents another handful of artefacts from Guttorm Guttormsgaard's Archives, selected by a group of young artists whom we (Ellef and I) collaborated with this summer at a workshop organised by PRAKSIS in the Archive just North of Oslo. These items are also integrated in the display and were selected by Juan Covelli (CO), Anna Sofie Mathiasen (DK), Lara Ögel (TR), Amina Sahan (NO), Kim Svensson (SE) and Stephanie von Spreter (DE).

  • Inside Intel

    Curated by Elliott Burns, India Murphy and Jake Charles Rees 

     

    16 – 20 October 2018

     

    The Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) presented Inside Intel: an exhibition of contemporary artworks, design objects and digital assets brought together to investigate the confusion sewn by an increasingly partisan media, sinister new technologies and the culture of official secrecy and widespread surveillance.

     

    Designed as an experimental Silicon Valley “Imagineering lab” situated within Goldsmiths, University of London, the exhibition was an aesthetic response to the 2018 CIJ Logan Symposium: 

    Conspiracy.

     

     Featuring work by: Benjamin Grosser, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Céline Minkyung Park, Cosmic Latte (Andrew Kiddie, Juan Covelli & Neale Willis), Darren Cullen, Davide Bevilacqua & Veronika Krenn, Eva & Franco Mattes, Ewan Jones Morris, Florentin Aisslinger, Forensic Architecture, Iain Ball, Joey Holder, Joseph Steele, Khaled Barakeh, Lucy Sanderson, Marion Balac, Nick Ryan in collaboration with Sean Malikides, Simon Denny, Ted Hunt, Thomas Yeomans and Yuri Pattison.

  • THE IMAGE OF THINGS

    Praksis

    Friday, September 21

     

    The Image of Things is an exhibition resulting from PRAKSIS’s tenth residency The Collective Subject of History that brings together a group of artists and a curator to collectively engage with Guttorm Guttormsgaard’s universe of collected objects as encountered in his Arkiv. Containing thousands of man-made objects from across the continents, the Arkiv rejects a hierarchical presentation of things and thereby slips Western principles of ordering and categorization. Rather, through the seemingly endless possibilities of looking, a myriad of stories emerges that enables the viewer to create new connections and narratives across space and time. The Image of Things explores how we can collectively (re)construct and (re)narrate the image and memory of an object when re-activated and re-imagined by the beholder.

    A collective exhibition at Guttormsgaards Arkiv with:
    Juan Covelli (CO), Anna Sofie Mathiasen (DK), Lara Ögel (TR), Amina Sahan (NO), Kim Svensson (SE), Stephanie von Spreter (DE), and the Hospital Prison University Radio (DK).

  • Fake plastic forevers & detournement of digital colonialism

    Internet Moon Gallery 

     

    Curated by Juan Covelli 

    September 1

     

    Fake plastic forevers, curated by Juan Covelli, is new reiteration of his previous internet based work Speculating the Fragmented Copy, created for the web residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude & ZKM | Center for Art and Media, where he released 14 high definition 3D scans from Mesoamerican archaeological artifacts that he scanned from the Stavenhagen Collection -CCU Tlatelolco in Mexico.

     

    Covelli has commissioned 6 artists to revisit his digital archive to create new work using the 3D models, to give the 2,000-year-old archaeological treasures a new digital life. The 3D scans presented are freed from physical matter, an illusion of sorts. Translated to a new dimension and language, which is not made of tangible material, their components are zeroes and ones, without dimension. The new artifacts are algorithmic calculations, released from the museum and its geographical limitations; now they are coming back to the people. Not bound by the original, the digitalized objects can become forever multiple, forever fluid. 

     

    Featured artist:

    Leá Porré , Miguel Ángel Salazar, Olga Mikh Fedorova, Neale Willis  , Yuma burgess and Finnish duo Nabbterri

  • Ancient Gods and Digital Power

    The interview by Clara Herrmann

    Akademie Schloss Solitude

    May 08, 2018

     

     

    What if the magical powers of the 3D scanner and the Mesoamerican ancient god of rain came together to fight digital colonialism? Juan Covelli went to Mexico to 3D scan 14 Mesoamerican artifacts for his project Speculating the Fragmented Copy, created for the web residencies at Solitude and ZKM. He then invited artists to download the objects and modify them however they wanted, to give the 2,000 year-old archeological treasures a new digital life in a Surrealist virtual gallery space. The project is part of a current open source countermovement against museums and tech companies such as Google who are also digitizing cultural heritage for creative re-use, but often just reproduce tactics of traditional colonialism due to closed and controlled production environments. Visit the project and read an interview with the artist.

  • To the Fore and into the Future

    by Tegan Bristow

    Web residencies by Akademie Schloss Solitude and ZKM | Center for Art and Media

     

    Between southern archives and new narratives: Four new artistic projects have been selected for the web residencies by Solitude and ZKM on the topic »Ghosted 2018«. The artists Juan Covelli (Colombia/UK), Dananayi Muwanigwa (Zimbabwe), Sahej Rahal (India), and Léa Porré (UK) will work on their projects from April 9 until May 6, 2018. Their proposals include explorations of traditional African beauty/aesthetics with digital paintings, interactive games on Internet shamanism, mythology, and meme culture, 3D-print-archives where images can be downloaded and remixed by the user, and visual examinations of hyperreal oases in the no mans’-land of digital culture ....

     

    Juan Covelli's work asks difficult questions about archive, ownership, and the bias of interpretation in the digital world – in a new and challenging manner. What happens as we increasingly digitize our physical life; how is culture and ownership present in this malaise?«

  • Life 2.0

    The wrong Biennale

    Curated by Bob Bicknell-Knight

     

    What do we mean when we talk about our ‘other’ self, our ‘second’ self, our, ‘online’ self? Some evangelists of certain digital worlds, like Second Life or World of Warcraft, declare that in the virtual realm we become our true selves, throwing off the shackles of mere appearance. Members of 4chan would probably agree. Where anyone can be anything, does that not level the playing field of life, allowing our personalities to reign free? Are these purported online ‘safe spaces’ the utopias we wish them to be, or just breeding grounds that encourage anonymous harassment, allowing our inner My Hyde’s to overwhelm the front facing Dr Jekyll’s. Maybe being hateful and misogynistic is part of our true selves, with Donald Trump as president of the United States being an example of this. When one enters the voting booth, alone at last, they only have to look within themselves to discover what, or who, they really want…

  • MM/2: Archipiélago, fuera del círculo

    [ANTI]MATERIA

    Curated by Doreen A Ríos 

     

    “The continental thinking denies the fusion while the archipelagic thinking makes it possible to say that
    the identity of any person, or group of people, isn’t predetermined once and for all. The archipelagic thinking makes it possible to have close exchanges with others without losing the sensation of individuality”
    Édouard Glissant, Le Discours antillais, (1989-92)

     

    It is precisely the idea of the archipelago the one that pushes us away from a concentric thinking while establishing a series of links that lead us to an exchange, same exchange that moves away from trying to find an absolute truth and that resembles a homogeneous fusion of complementary ideologies.

  • isthisit? issue 02

    The second issue of the isthisit? magazine is 96 pages and composed of artworks, essays, interviews and one podcast, considering memes and appropriation on the internet. In the United States 2016 presidential election, memes are said to have played a fundamental role, with individuals on 4chan claiming that they were responsible for Donald Trump's rise to power due to the amount of memes that were created and shared on a daily basis. This issue of the magazine hopes to consider the power of the meme, it's rise in contemporary culture and the widespread appropriation of images and videos being utilised, both in memes and artworks.
