N.e.w.s. celebrates one-year! with an invitation to present at ISEA 2009 (International Symposium on Electronic Art) on the island of Ireland. N.e.w.s. will deliver the powerpoint presentation ‘Ruminations on Remuneration’ on Saturday, August 29, 2009 in Belfast at 12:30, University of Ulster. In this presentation (n.e.w.s.) addresses the relationship between rethinking the social and economic conditions of art and the artistic context of an emergent participatory community investing in creative production on the Internet. This will be mapped out through notions of the gift, immaterial labour, debt and participatory technologies. Finally we would like to introduce our forthcoming book Arbitrating Attention: reinvesting attention surplus in plausible artworlds that explores alternative models of remuneration. Please see below.
