MAIL ART DISRUPTION
disruption - an act of delaying or interrupting the continuity; a disorderly outburst or tumult; an event that results in a displacement or discontinuity; the act of causing disorder from within (social, political, technological and artistic systems).
“Networked Disruption - Rethinking Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism and Business” is an exhibition and a series of events produced in Slovenija by Aksioma - Institute for Contemporary Art, Ljubljana (www.aksioma.org), Škuc Gallery and Drugo more, Rijeka and curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli (http://networkingart.eu - http://disruptiv.biz), hosted by Škuc Gallery in Ljubljana. This exhibition - that will take place from March 11 to April 3, 2015, and then will travel to the MMSU in Rijeka from April 23 till May 14 - is centred on the concept of "Networked Disruption", as an opportunity to show new possible routes of social and political action after the emergence of the business of social media and Web 2.0. Distributed, autonomous and decentralised networking practices of disruption become a means for highlighting oppositional hacktivist and artistic strategies within the framework of art and business. The exhibition is based on the analysis described in the book Networked Disruption: Rethinking Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism and the Business of Social Networking by Tatiana Bazzichelli (DARC Press, The Digital Aesthetics Research Centre of Aarhus University, 2013). The exhibition will present materials related to several networking projects that challenge the notion of power and hegemony, such as mail art, Neoism, Luther Blissett, Anonymous, Anna Adamolo, Les Liens Invisibles, the Telekommunisten collective, The San Francisco Suicide Club, The Cacophony Society, the early Burning Man Festival, Janez Janša, Janez Janša, Janez Janša and others.
The mail art section of Networked Disruption, curated by Vittore Baroni, will present a selection of “disruptive” mail art works from the E.O.N. Archive, together with original postal works on this theme (free size and technique) that YOU are invited to mail to:
Stari trg 21
Deadline: your works should arrive between January 5 and March 10, 2015.
A documentation will be sent to all the participants after the end of the exhibition, please include your postal address clearly legible.
To provide a more collective point of view in the selection of “historical” materials, you are welcomed to contribute also by sending good quality scans of one or more mail art works from your archive that you consider particularly “disrupting”. Please send the scans before February 15, 2015 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for your contribution, please circulate freely this open call.
