ADA welcomes Scholars!

The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!

Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.

The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.

To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

Note that this is geolocative AR, which is relatively easy to do. Image-trigger is more difficult.

Flusser & the Arts: an exhibition ZKM Karlsruhe and Academy of the arts, Hanseatenweg Berlin
Exhibition at ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe (opening: August 14, 2015) and Academy of the Arts, Hanseatenweg, Berlin (opening: November 18, 2015) with the holdings Louis Bec, Harun Farocki, Joan Foncuberta, Fred Forest, Marcello Mercado, Anthony Moore, Matthias Müller, Andreas Müller-Pohle, Nam June Paik, The Quay Brothers, Mira Schendel, Lisa Schmitz und Pinar Yoldas.
The author of texts with such programmatic titles as Into the Universe of Technical Images and Towards A Philosophy of Photography, Vilém Flusser (1920–1991) was one of the most influential thinkers on communications and media in the latter decades of the twentieth century. He took up the challenge of rethinking the arts in light of new technologies. The exhibition will feature work by artists Flusser knew and wrote about, copious documents, books and correspondence from his archives, biographical and philosophical diagrams and works by contemporary artists.
An exhibition curated by Baruch Bruce Gottlieb and Siegfried Zielinski in cooperation with Peter Weibel (ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) and Daniel Irrgang (Vilém Flusser Archive, Berlin University of the Arts).

Lynn Hershman Leeson 3:57pm Jul 3
With her ironic, beautiful and at times disturbing Infinity Engine, Leeson incites us to think for ourselves. Year by year, her art is becoming more hard-hitting and original – an extraordinary achievement for an artist who has been working for five decades.
