Hot off the press #fff #futurefluxfestival @madeiraiti

A post shared by Michelle Kasprzak (@mkultra0000) on

Future Flux Festival is a new festival in the historic submarine wharf of Rotterdam. This spacious and atmospheric venue has a rich industrial history and is rapidly evolving into a prominent site where industry, creativity and innovation converge. The festival is a platform for new developments in the fields of technology, art and innovation. I’m excited to be involved with the festival as curator of the Playground.

In the Playground we invite you to make, hack, and create, led by our international group of artists and makers. Unlike a regular art exhibition or industry trade show, you will be confronted with many opportunities to get your hands dirty and participate. You can make a loudspeaker, a fake bomb detector, mobile phone noise music, and learn how to protect yourself from data leaks. We’re hosting the European premiere of Garnet Hertz’s new zine, Disobedient Electronics, and you can bring your own records to be played by James Auger’s turntable powered only by gravity. We’re also proud to debut brand new work by Georgina Voss, as well as exhibit the Osmo dome by Loop, and Parallel Suspended, a robot which makes large-scale drawings with sand by Gijs van Bon.

There’s also a day devoted to industry with some great keynotes such as Scott Smith and Maria Yablonina, and the FabCity programme where you can explore sustainability and food in the urban context, a music programme, and much more — see you at the Festival!

Playground artists: Georgina Voss, Gijs van Bon, Loop, Darsha Hewitt, Debbie Ding, Garnet Hertz, Peter Flemming, Dries Depoorter, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez and Julien Deswaef, Leanne Wijnsma, James Auger

 

No Limit
I’m pleased to announce that an exhibition of new work by UBERMORGEN that I’ve curated opens this week at Kasseler Kunstverein.
The exhibition deals with psychopathy and narcissism, and links these conditions to our technological culture and capitalism.

I’m really delighted to announce this exciting contest, which is a collaboration between my venture, leading online resource for curators Curating.info, and KAPSUL, a platform and tool for curatorial work. KAPSUL allows you to collect and arrange images, text, and video into distinct units, as a way of organizing your thoughts and making your concepts more clear and coherent. With an embedded art-relevant search engine (compare your results to unvarnished Googling to see the difference), KAPSUL provides two key curatorial tools: a means to search for relevant things, and then a way to collect, organize, and share them (or keep them to yourself!). I’ve used KAPSUL myself on shows I’m working on to organize research and foster dialogue within curatorial teams.

In collaboration with KAPSUL, Curating.info is launching the Musée Imaginaire concours. The contest invites you to develop your own ‘kapsul’ for online exhibition, and a chance at a $1000 USD prize. A jury of internationally recognized curators is eager to see who will best utilize the platform to create innovative curatorial propositions. Honorary mentions will be made for crowd favorites.

Read more about the contest here.
Deadline for submissions is January 29 2013, and participation in contest is free.
Good luck with your entry!

Seeking Silicon Valley, the exhibition for the ZERO1 Biennial that I co-curated with a group of curators from all corners of the globe, closes in just under a month. The exhibition “…proposes that contemporary art practice can re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. However, the ZERO1 Biennial is not only about the geographical region of Silicon Valley; it’s about investigating how the process of seeking can create a platform for creativity and experimentation centered in Silicon Valley while inviting contributions from around the world.” The exhibition features the work of 24 artists representing 11 different countries.
