26/5: networks! a look into the future

A look into the working of cultural communities, onsite and online
Networks consist of mobile relations whose arrangement at any particular time is shaped by the 'constitutive outside' of feedback or noise. The order of networks is made up of a continuum of relations governed by interests, passions, affects and pragmatic necessities of different actors. (....) Organised networks are ‘clouds’ of social relationships in which disengagement is pushed to the limit. Community is an idealistic construct and suggests bonding and harmony, which is often simply not there. [geert lovink / ned rossiter]

3pm>7pm round table discussion
A look into the working of cultural communities, onsite and online

Does the wish for networking and the implementation of collaboration-methodologies [physical and virtual collaborative tools] initiate new concepts and new aesthetics?

Moderator: Nat Muller (curator, critic and foodie, Nl)
with: Nina Czegledy and Guy Van Belle presenting the Transmutation Project, Alessandro Ludovico (neural magazine, italy) and Paul Keller (de Waag-Sarai Exchange Programme, Next5Minutes, Nl).

5pm: Project presentation by Dusan Barok
comments on networking as a creative act in SK and CZ.

Real life examples of participation via webtools in community life. Why working with community websites? What activity is happening through and beyond these tools (e.g. burundi, 34, nextfestival, multiplace, c2c, ciant, 13m3, okno, atraktart)? Did the methodologies of these organizations change through the implementation of collaborative webtools, and what was actually the unpredictable, experimental part of this?
