UNFOLD #1 Mediation by Reinterpretation

Calendar item
LIMA presents the kick off of

UNFOLD: Mediation and Remediation of media art, re­enactment and reinterpretation.

LIMA is researching new methods for the documentation, transmission and preservation of media art, digital art and performances. This new one-year research project is a collaborative, international research network that together will be examining re-interpretation as emerging practice for conserving of media artworks.

We are happy to announce the first (out of four) public events LIMA will host in the context of its new research project ‘Unfold: Mediation by re-interpretation’. 
This evening we welcome academic researchers Serena Cangiano and Gabriella Giannachi; we have artist Joost Rekveld with us who is connected to the UNFOLD - project as creator of new work, and we will end the night with a panel discussion moderated by Katja Kwastek.

Gaby Wijers (Director LIMA) and Lara Garcia Diaz (Art Theorist and UNFOLD - researcher) will welcome you this night.

Serena Cangiano (Researcher and coordinator of Master in Interaction Design at SUPSI Lugano) will give a lecture on Mediation and Remediation of a media art casestudy: the project Reprogrammed Art (http://www.reprogrammed-art.cc/).
Gabriella Giannachi (Professor in Performance and New Media, and Director of the Centre of Intermedia at the University of Exeter) will give a lecture called ‘Unfolding Performance’; on Mediation and Remediation of new media art and performances.
Joost Rekveld is an artist who is part of the UNFOLD - research team. He will talk about his project on the work of The Vasulkas - which is part of the LIMA collection. By producing a re-interpretation of The Vasulkas a case study emerges to draw upon in order to identify parallels in the mediation of a work and related notions of authorship, authenticity, autonomy, documentation, memory, continuity and liveness. 
Katja Kwastek will round up the evening by leading a panel discussion. She is professor Modern and Contemporary Art at the Faculty of Humanities of VU Amsterdam whose research interests focuses on modern and contemporary art and media, media aesthetics,audiences of art and digital humanities.
