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.

Thomas Philipp 11.12.2017 You love art, media and philosophy? Than take a look at these christmas cookies. Price: 45 euros. Per piece!
Michel Foucault was a French philosopher and psychologist who decisively shaped post-structuralist thinking. His portrait now decorates a shortbread made by the Austrian art collective qujOchÖ. In a one-time Christmas campaign, 100 copies of these Foucault cookies can be purchased for a price of 45 Euros each.
WTF? Foucault, ok, cool, but a cookie for 45 euros? Are you crazy?
To relieve the pain, the brand-new board game MYTH OF THEUTH is included in the purchase of a cookie. In this fantastic game you will move through ancient Athens, collecting different media in order to complete a mission. You will meet famous people who greatly influenced the development of media philosophies. Gotthold Ephraim Lessing shows you the limits of the image, Laura Mulvey takes a delightful gaze on your memorizing abilities, and Marshall McLuhan finally gets his well-deserved massage. Across 12 stations, you will use smartphones, newspapers, stamps, candy, hand, feet, pairs of eyes, and other means to discover the myth of the invention of writing by the Egyptian god Theuth, as described by Plato. Whoever manages to finish the mission first – with a combination of strategy, luck, and knowledge – will be worshiped as a divine medium!
When you buy a biscuit, MYTH OF THEUTH comes in the standard version to your home, packed in a VHS cassette case, produced in a first edition of 500 pieces. If you would like to eat two Foucault biscuits, you will be rewarded with one copy from the limited and signed edition which is delivered in a slide box. It contains additional game material, including a sleep mask, several Lego bricks and Flusser's liqueur. The prices do not include shipping costs.
More information and pictures of the game can be found at http://qujochoe.org/en/mvt. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212530122706779&set=gm.1282599978513405&type=3

Practices of notation – practices of reflection (16:30-21)
Host: Professor Alex Arteaga, Academy of Fine Arts, Uniarts Helsinki
This proposal offers a framework for the inquiry into a certain concept of notation and the specificities of and the mutual relationships between two varieties of practice: practices of notation and practices of reflection. Notation here is understood as the production of artifacts configured by signs generated and organized in correlation with ongoing events. On this basis, practices of notation are conceived as systematized varieties of aesthetic action performed in different media (e.g. graphic, video, audio, body movement) simultaneously and in immediate contact with the events to be notated. In contrast, practices of reflection are thought to be systematized forms of action that address recurrently the artifacts generated through practices of notation, producing second-order artifacts that might function as hermeneutic tools in relation to the products of notation and, therefore, to the notated events.These topics will be investigated here in relation to a specific research object: the agency of particular components of a situation that enable the emergence of the situation’s atmosphere.
Introductory lecture on practices of notation and practices of reflection:
Alex Arteaga and Nikolaus Gansterer

The gift of seeing
Host: Professor Lea Kantonen, Academy of Fine Arts, Uniarts Helsinki
The Wixarika people living on the Western Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico have a rich tradition of non-official and unofficial art education dating back to pre-colonial times. Today many Wixarika communities are also founding their official self-governed institutions such as schools and museums and using digital technology in art pedagogy. How does a Wixarika teacher see an art students' quest for seeing? We explore this theme during the half-day event that includes keynotes, workshops, performances, and a screening, as well as dialogues between keynote guests and audience.

Collisions. The contemporary in artistic research
Host: Michael Schwab, Professor, Academy of Fine Arts, Uniarts Helsinki
What is the relationship of artistic research to contemporary art? Can it help to further artistic practices interested in resisting the flow of our times, or is it complicit in making art available now not only as material object but also as object of knowledge? Keynote speakers Jacob Lund, Paul O’Neill, Elizabeth Fisher and Knut Ebeling explore the theme of this whole day seminar from various angels. There will also be a panel discussion with Hami Bahadori, Sezgin Boynik, Minna Henriksson, Marianne Niemelä and Elina Suoyrjö; chaired by Michael Schwab.
