Microfilmmaker Magazine verleiht "Gstettensaga" ihren "Award of Superiority"

Microfilmmaker Magazine verleiht der "Gstettensaga" ihren "Award of Superiority" (mit 9.5/10 Punkten). Welch' Ehre!
Their choice of blurring languages, occupations, and post-apoc mythos has created a strange cross between L. Frank Baum’s underappreciated Oz series (“Underappreciated?? But everybody saw the Wizard of Oz, right?” Yeah, but how many people are aware that there are 44 books in the OZ series, with 14 penned by Baum himself???), Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, and Samuel Beckett plays like Endgame. As I said before, improbably, this actually works out.
Die Gstettensaga: The Rise of Echsenfriedl is as avant-garde as you can possibly get, with commentaries on everything from technology, nerd culture, totalitarianism, and religion, and featuring homages to everything from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis to The Blair Witch Project to Ylvis’ “The Fox (What Does The Fox Say).” And somehow it all works surprisingly well together.

Laughing Squid empfiehlt "Die Gstettensaga" auf dem 'Maker Film Fest of Durango'

The first Maker Film Festival, a showcase of films by and about the maker movement, takes place August 9th and 10th, 2014 at the Powerhouse Science Center in Durango, Colorado. The festival will include a screening of the feature length documentary Maker and a talk by artist Johannes Grenzfurthner of Austrian art group Monochrom.

Inspiring innovation, creation and discovery are at the heart of the maker movement and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate those endeavors than through Film. The Maker Film Festival sets out to highlight movements that are changing the world through action, showcase technologies that are enabling powerful new modes of expression, and relish in the incredible things that happen when people of all ages are empowered to create.

Hedonistika-Buch: Call for Papers

"Hedonistika: Montréal" was an exhibition held at the Musée d’art contemporain in Montréal as part of the International Digital Arts Biennial (BIAN) in May 2014. The exhibition was a multi-modal event that brought together food scholars, artists, and roboticists to examine the innumerable (and often hidden) ways in which technology and food are related. By engaging with the hegemony-challenging ideology of hacking and creating, participants interrogated and exposed the mutually constructive bonds of food and tech, while proposing alternative, playful, and stimulating reconfigurations. The event proposed a hack: a hybrid of bricolage, play, criticality, and cross-disciplinary collaboration. The goal of Hedonistika was to reflect and perhaps undo the assumptions and habits that frame our everyday interactions with both food and technology, while making evident their often-neglected entanglements. The goal was to merge research-creation with critical analysis, and community engagement with celebration. To compliment the exhibition catalogue we are now looking for papers that explore the critical issues within these realms.

See http://janetingley.com/hedonistika/ and http://www.hedonistika.com/ for details of the exhibition.

We are looking for a diverse range of text – from academic to more experimental. Your contribution should not exceed 40 000 characters including the title, a short biography (max. 10 lines) and references. In addition, the number of images (diagrams, etc.) should be reduced to an absolute minimum. The images must be sent as separate files in print-quality (300dpi) and must be accompanied by complete captions (copyright information, source, etc.). The language of publication is English.

We would like you to complete the finished text by October 31st 2014 by the latest and send the electronic version (as a Word document, Times New Roman, font size 12 for the main text, font size 10 for block quotations) to <office AT monochrom.at>

Thank you in advance for your efforts!

Very best wishes,
Guenther Friesinger, Johannes Grenzfurthner, Jane Tingley and Simon Laroche
