DESCRIPTION

The New Media Caucus seeks artists’ work for the 2014 College Art Association Media Lounge. Works will accompany the New Media Caucus panel presentations on Alternative Economies, and will be presented the morning of February 13, 2015.

We are seeking work that responds to Disrupting Bodies, Disrupting Narratives. This includes:

Bodies- encompassing gender, sexuality, class, race, (dis)ability, sentient beings, future bodies, labor, or community.

Narratives- the reframing of historic and future narratives by questioning power and its relationship to storyteller/storytelling

Some questions to consider are:

  • What is an “outsider perspective”? Who gets to tell the past and who gets to tell the future
  • How does Narrative operate as a technology?
  • How can the body be technology?
  • How is technology forming future bodies and ideas of embodiment?
  • How do bodies interfere with narrative?
  • What is a “rebel body,” and how is it formed or tamed?
  • How are stories or narrative shared or silenced?
  • How are narratives economic? What work creates economic narratives?
  • How might work respond to wanting labor but not wanting the body? Disembodied Labor? Domesticity? Sexuality? Placism? Etc.

All media will be considered, but must be able to be presented digitally, performed or available in print. Preference given to the following forms: new media, digital art, queer art, feminist art, activist based art, performance art, work that incorporates the archive, speculative fiction/design, and digital nonfiction.
