Thanks so much to Isak Berbic and Jolene Rickard for providing us with a
stimulating beginning to our June discussion of Biennale Plus or Minus.
 This week's guests promise to extend the discussion in even more
directions.  Welcome to Linda Carroli (Aus), Manuela de Barros (France),
Kimberly Lamm (US).  We're looking forward to hearing your perspectives.
 Best,  Renate and Tim

Linda Carroli is a Brisbane based writer who blogs for [co]design studio, a
non-profit, multi-disciplinary community oriented design organisation, and
writes a regular feature about urban innovation and creativity for Arts Hub.
She is an associate with Harbinger Consultants, working in community,
cultural and communications contexts. She has had significant involvements
in the art, science and technology field including fineArt forum and the
Australian Network for Art and Technology. She is currently working on two
blog-based writing and publishing projects: Changescaping (changing

Manuela de Barros (France) is a French
philosopher and theoretician of art who teaches in
the Department of Arts, Philosophie, Esthétique
at the Université de Paris, 8 (St. Denis), and in
the Ecole Médias Arts, Chalon sur Saone in
France.  Emphasizing the relations of art,
science, and technology, Manuela is the author of
L'Art à l'époque du virtuel (2003, L'Harmatton),
and L'Art a-t-il besoin du numérique" (Colloque
de Cerisy) (200, Hermès Lavoisier).

Kimberly Lamm (US)  is Assistant Professor of
Women's Studies at Duke University.  Her research
moves within the fields of feminist theory,
American Studies, literature, and visual art, but
I consistently pursues moments in which seamless
identifications between language and the image
are interrupted. Her essays ranging from
African-American visual culture to American
poetry's relationship to feminist theory have
appeared in Callaloo, Michigan Feminist Studies,
American Quarterly, and the anthology Unmaking
Race, Remaking Soul. She is  working on two book
projects: "Inadequacies and Interruptions:
Language and Feminist Reading Practices in
Contemporary Art" and "The Poetics of Reciprocity
in Contemporary Women's Writing."
