its good to read these accounts of these hystories && i hopes yawl + others
will propose && present these @ RE:NEW, the upcoming Media Art Histories
conference hosted by RIXC to be held in Riga, Latvia:
http://www.mediaarthistory.org/renew

im wondering outloud also about, as Christiane writes, the global /
regional / local in relation to imperialisms, colonial projects, the flows
of global capital in globalized hypercapitalism, etc... && questions of
scale. in other words, on what scales can these issues bue mobilized by
artists, curators + artists/curators?

my own response has been to move towards && maintain small scales (1), to
operate in as ARAM writes, super-niches (2) + out of the way places (3),
not unlike Nate's Apache Projects project. but then to be able to translate
between these small scale operations && other worlds, such as the academic
worlds i work in (4)

+ following Elvira Dyangani Ose's questions... ARAM's SPEED SHOW platform /
project activates the art of the Internet-cafe as a specific &&
specifically globalized place && activates Internet-cafes w/ art of the
Internet, also a specific && specifically globalized space

another project which bears these issues out, but differently, + has been
invoked in this conversation is Rafael Rosenthal's initiation of the BYOB
platform / project: http://www.byobworldwide.com
which i have been involved in versions of + have mobilized critiques of
through my participation:

i would be vry curious / interested in others' perspectives on how these
projects / platforms, either those proposed +/or those realized, make real
various aspects of New Media Art in which we are "Rethinking Curatorial
Options: Globally" online && AFK...
