A conference on curating digital media


Tate Modern, London
4 June 2005, 10.00 - 18.30

If the assumption is made that traditional curating follows a centralised
network model, then what is the position of the curator within a distributed
network model? This conference investigates this question in relation to
recent ideas around the 'immateriality' of cultural production and dynamic
systems leading to contradictory tensions between increased collectivity and
curatorial control. It asks how curators respond to new forms of
self-organising and self-replicating systems, databases, programming, net
art, software art and generative media within the wider system of
(im)material culture? What new models of curatorial practice are needed to
take into account the transformative nature of objects, and production
processes that are collaborative, shared and distributed?

The conference also introduces 'KURATOR' - a free software application
designed as a curating tool for source code that can be further modified by

Inke Arns | Josephine Berry Slater | Geoff Cox | Olga Goriunova and Alexei
Shulgin | Eva Grubinger | Piotr Krajewski | Joasia Krysa | Jacob Lillemose |
Franziska Nori | Christiane Paul | Grzesiek Sedek | Tiziana Terranova |
Dominic Willsdon

The project is organised by Joasia Krysa in partnership with Tate Modern and
with the support of Arts Council England, MUTE, DATA browser, University of
Plymouth and i-DAT.
