Now in its second year, GLI.TC/H gathers a variety of participants + works + ideas from within glitch/dirty/experimental-new-media art communities into a multi-day & multi-format happening consisting of video screenings, real-time performances, workshops, lectures, panels, a gallery exhibition and on-going online components.

Thinkers and artists; Makers and breakers converge to celebrate technological catastrophe. A glitch is a moment known to everyone but enjoyed by few. GLI.TC/H brings together those inspired/curious/provoked by glitches and provides a platform to break things, share thoughts, and develop ideas.

GLI.TC/H will include works from over 100 participants from more than a dozen countries and will be taking place in virtual-space at http://gli.tc/h and in real-space from Nov 3 - 6 in Chicago, US; Nov 11 - 12 in Amsterdam, NL; Nov 19 in Birmingham, UK.

Recent writings, works, and experiments in glitch art exemplify the potential of new-media-art to expose critical links within our (increasingly mediated) digital-culture. Last year’s conference brought a diverse and geographically scattered community together to discuss and share their works and ideas in real-time and real-space. The conversations had and connections made at GLI.TC/H 2010 have continued to develop virtually over the past year. GLI.TC/H 20111 will collate and celebrate these glitchy developments in an unstoppable multi-city event fueled by these chaotic communities and vibrant participants old and new.

GLI.TC/H 20111 has been made possible by 146 online Kickstarter backers.

The Amsterdam event will take place at STEIM and PLANETART on Nov 11 and 12, and open with a book release of The Glitch Moment(um) at STEIM.

 

In this book, Rosa Menkman brings in early information theorists not usually encountered in glitch’s theoretical foundations to refine a signal and informational vocabulary appropriate to glitch’s technological moment(um) and orientations. The book makes sense of recent glitch art and culture: technically, culturally, critically, aesthetically and finally as a genre.

The glitch takes on a different form in relation to noise, failure or the accident. It transitions between artifact and filter; between radical breakages and commodification processes. Menkman shows how we need to be clearer about the relationship between the technical and cultural dimensions of glitch culture. Honing in on the specificities of glitch artifacts within this broader perspective makes it possible to think through some of the more interesting implications of glitched media experience. Using a critical media aesthetic orientation, Menkman addresses the ongoing definitional tensions, paradoxes, and debates that any notion of glitch art as a genre must negotiate, rather than elude.

Rosa Menkman is a Dutch visualist, theorist and curator, working with glitches, compressions, feedback and other forms of noise artifacts, aiming to contribute to the development of a discourse for glitch art and culture.

Op 11 en 12 november vindt in PLANETART en STEIM (Amsterdam) een uitgebreid programma over GLITCH Art plaats als onderdeel van het internationale New-Media Event GLI.TC/H 2011. Het programma omvat realtime performances, video screenings, workshops, lectures, offline en online panels en een tentoonstelling. Ook onderdeel van deze manifestatie is de presentatie van 'The Glitch moment(um)', een uitgave van het INC, geschreven door Rosa Menkman, visualist, theoretica en curator.

Een glitch is 'een moment van storing' dat ieder uit het dagelijks leven kent maar meestal niet positief waardeert. In New-media Art wordt de glitch opgevat als een breekpunt dat nieuwe perspectieven opent. Recente teksten, werken en experimenten in glitch art tonen het potentieel om kritische verbanden aan te geven met onze (steeds meer gemedieerde) digitale cultuur.

De conferentie van 2010 (Chicago/USA) bracht divers samengestelde communities van wetenschappers, kunstenaars en geïnteresseerden uit vele plekken van de wereld bijeen. Zij toonden hun werk, deelden hun ideeën en discussieerden. De uitkomsten van deze gesprekken en connecties zijn in het afgelopen jaar steeds verder ontwikkeld. GLI.TC/H 2011 wil deze glitchy ontwikkelingen een podium bieden door werk te tonen, ideeën te stimuleren en GLITCH te vieren in een niet te stoppen multi-city event, aangestoken door chaotische communities en enthousiaste deelnemers bestaand uit zowel wetenschappers als kunstenaars.

GLI.TC/H 2011 omvat werk van ruim 100 deelnemers uit meer dan 10 landen en vindt plaats in de virtuele ruimte op: http://gli.tc/h en in real-space: van 3 tot 6 november in Chicago, US; van 11 tot 12 november in Amsterdam en op 19 november in Birmingham, UK.

GLI.TC/H 2011 is mogelijk gemaakt door de support van 146 donateurs!
