QUAD Derby, UK & Radiator Biennial Festival of New Media Art Nottingham, UK

The 7th edition of the media/art project AGM (www.agmculture.org) is this year part of the Radiator Biennial Festival and Symposium (www.radiator-festival.org) and includes an exhibition, video installation, performance, music and talk; exploring our behaviour with technologies of surveillance and counter-surveillance in QUAD. From 15th to 25th January 2009, eight international artists, designers, writers and performers respond to the cultural environment generated by CCTV and (self) recording.

On screens throughout QUAD, 15th – 25th January 2009

Artworks by plankton (media collective, Austria), Chris Oakley (videomaker, UK), Miska Knapek (new media designer, Denmark/Sweden), Scott Jon Siegel (game designer, USA), and ZimmerFrei (art collective, Italy).

AGM is an art/media project that happens once a year and changes its form, content and location every time. Previous editions were held in Italy (performance event, 2003), the Netherlands (radio programme, 2004), Canada (sound installations, 2005), Denmark (public screenings, 2006), Austria (symposium, 2007), and the Internet (2008).For previous editions please visit www.agmculture.org. Curated by Iben Bentzen and Alfredo Cramerotti, QUAD Exhibitions Officer.

The fourth Radiator Biennial Festival and Symposium brings together artists with academics, geographers, urban theorists, scientists, sociologists and fellow citizens in the discovery of a new topography of the city, based on the understanding that digital networks are transforming our notion of public and private space. The symposium “Exploits in the Wireless City” at Broadway in Nottingham (http://www.broadway.org.uk) features theorists, architects, journalists, urban planners, and artists’ works. The symposium aims to instigate discussion, debate and new interdisciplinary research networks. Curated by Anette Schäfer and Miles Chalcraft.
