ISEA2018: June 23-30, 2018 in Durban South Africa

The ISEA2018 theme of Intersections positions creative technological innovation as an activist engagement into public space and public practice. Creative collaboration between artists, artisans, designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and inventors will take place in a context where survival is the most basic instigator for solutions. In such a scenario, technological developments follow and support these solutions. In addition, the role of the artist is essential in providing opportunities to build new and exciting interactions between people and place.

CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

24th International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2018)

and the 5th Arts and Design Digital Festival (Digifest5)

 June 23-30, 2018

 Durban University of Technology, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

http://www.isea-international.org/isea20

ISEA is one of the world’s most prominent international arts and technology events, bringing together scholarly, artistic, and scientific domains in an interdisciplinary discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in art, interactivity, and electronic and digital media.

The ISEA2018 theme of Intersections positions creative technological innovation as an activist engagement into public space and public practice. Creative collaboration between artists, artisans, designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and inventors will take place in a context where survival is the most basic instigator for solutions. In such a scenario, technological developments follow and support these solutions. In addition, the role of the artist is essential in providing opportunities to build new and exciting interactions between people and place.

ISEA2018 welcomes the following submissions:

  • Academic: papers, posters, panels and round-tables for double blind peer review.
  • Presentations and discussions: in the form of artist talks, conversation sessions and institutional presentations.
  • Creative: in the form of artworks, showcases, design solutions, socially engaged interventions, performances, residencies, workshops, tutorials.

ISEA International encourages the Host Organisation to incorporate aspects of local culture, history and traditions (as they pertain to arts and technology) to make every Symposium a unique and rewarding socio-cultural experience.

SUB-THEMES

Hybridisation and Purity

The sub-theme provides for contributions reflecting the purity of numbers, code and technology interfacing with art, as well as hybridisation in relation to art, science and technology. This sub-theme includes contributions on identities, diversity and pluralism, migration and urbanisation as well as notions of democracies – all in relation to art, science and technology. We invite contributions on the purity of technology, sound, light and the ‘fourth industrial revolution’ (artificial intelligence, virtual reality), networks and net neutrality, as well as on the digital divide and technology for development.

 

Emancipation and Pain

The sub-theme provides for contributions on the politics of art, science and technology in its broadest sense. This includes critical assessments on surveillance and intelligence; ‘high art’; elitism and exclusivity, popular culture and inclusivity. Contributions are welcomed on revolutions, reclaiming spaces and places, the ritualised everyday, contested notions of ‘informality’ and as well as on voice and voiceless. It provides for contributions on xenophobia, colonial legacies and new powers intersecting with media art practices, addressing the challenges of diversity. Contributions are welcomed on the social practice of art and science engagement, as well as on art and activism.

Spirit and Flesh

The sub-theme provides for contributions on intangible and tangible heritage; on mobius and teleos; as well as indigenous knowledge systems, reality and lived experiences. It also includes contributions on the self and the body as well as on infinity and life beyond. In addition, it provides for critical assessments on media art and culture, the relevance of the classic museum environment and the potential for public space activations.

 

In between the cracks

The sub-theme allows for contributions on anything in-between; which do not fit into identified sub-themes, and that push the boundaries of art, science and technology. Individual scholars and artists, as well as those working in groups are welcome to propose sessions, events, roundtables, exhibitions and performances which go beyond the suggested themes and which seek to enhance the overall conference experience.

The official language of the event is English. Submissions must be written in English.

## ABOUT ISEA ##

Founded in the Netherlands in 1990, ISEA International (formerly
Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts) is an international non-profit
organisation fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange
among culturally diverse organisations and individuals working with art,
science and technology. The main activity of ISEA International is the
annual International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA). In an important
move for ISEA, an agreement with University of Brighton to establish an
ISEA Headquarters was signed in July 2009. ISEA HQ provides an
administrative, academic and creative base for ISEA and develops a
fruitful partnership with a leading research University. The symposia
began in 1988.
