Notícia da semana: The Center for Advanced Visual Studies and the MIT Visual Arts Program have merged to become the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT). (...) The program considers artistic practice to be knowledge production. (...) ACT curriculum includes courses in 'Production of Space,' 'Interrogative Design,' 'Networked Cultures,' and 'Contemporary Curatorial Practice,' among others. (...) ACT Faculty are world-renowned with active, international careers and a strong interest in cross-disciplinary debate, research, and modes of production (e.g. Ute Meta Bauer, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Joan Jonas, Gediminas Urbonas, Antoni Muntadas). (...) ACT research fellows and affiliates engage with students and faculty on long term thematic research clusters in the field of art, culture and technology, such as 'Interrogative Design Group,' 'Mobile act lab,' 'Artistic research and transdisciplinary collaboration,' and 'Future of Body/Multiple Senses' to name a few. The program's 'Future Archive Project' is transforming the archives of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT into an active location for research and scholarship in issues of archiving and disseminating time-based works of art. ACT is well situated for this project given the 40-year history of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies in the creative use of new and technologically advanced materials, and in collaboration among artists, historians, technologists, and others in the MIT community and beyond. No evento de celebração, haverá um Pecha Kucha com estudantes e uma apresentação de portfólio de Joan Jonas, introduzida por Okwui Enwezor.
