Kunstforschung, künstlerische Forschung oder kunstbasierte Forschung sind derzeit populäre Begriffe - spekuliert werden darf jedoch, was mit ihnen gemeint sei. Der Band konzipiert Kunstforschung als »ästhetische Wissenschaft«, als einen Prozess, der das spezifische Wissen und die Kompetenzen von Künstlern nutzt, um sie in anderen Kontexten als dem Kunstsystem zur Anwendung zu bringen: Künstlerische Kompetenzen und Arbeitsweisen werden mit wissenschaftlichen verwunden, um problemorientiert neues Wissen zu generieren.

Technological, cultural and economic forces are transforming political communication, posing challenges and opportunities for politicians and media organisations, while at the same time many governments and civil society express concerns about the extent and nature of political empowerment and civic engagement. This book offers an international perspective on current thinking and practice about civic and audience empowerment, focusing on the ways and means through which media can empower or dis-empower citizens as audiences. It features theoretical and empirical chapters that draw specific attention to a reappraisal of the theories, methods and issues that inform our understanding of citizens and audiences in contemporary politics. The authors address the following questions: How much and what sorts of civic and audience empowerment are most desirable, and how does this differ cross-nationally? How do citizens relate to private and public spaces? How do citizens function in online, networked, liminal and alternative spaces? How do audiences of ‘non-political’ media spaces relate their experiences to politics? How are political parties and movements utilising audiences as co-creators of political communication and what are the consequences for democracy? With examples from the UK, USA, Holland, France, Germany, The Middle East, South Africa and Mexico, this innovative volume will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, marketing, journalism, cultural studies, public relations, media and international relations.

The Fourth International Conference on Signal-Image Technology & Internet-Based S- tems (SITIS 2008) has been successfully held during the period 30th November to 3rd of December of the year 2008 in Bali, Indonesia. The Track Web-Based Information Te- nologies & Distributed Systems (WITDS) is one of the four tracks of the conference. The track is devoted to emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for c- ating an interconnected world in which information can be exchanged easily, tasks can be processed collaboratively, and communities of users with similar interests can be formed while addressing security threats that are present more than ever before. The track has attracted a large number of submissions; only ?fteen papers have been accepted with - ceptance rate 27%. After the successful presentations of the papers during the conference, the track chairs have agreed with Atlantis publisher to publish the extended versions of the papers in a book. Each paper has been extended with a minimum of 30% new materials from its original conference manuscript. This book contains these extendedversions as chaptersafter a second roundof reviews and improvement. The book is an excellent resource of information to researchers and it is based on four themes; the ?rst theme is on advances in ad-hoc and routing protocols, the second theme focuses on the latest techniques and methods on intelligent systems, the third theme is a latest trend in Security and Policies, and the last theme is applications of algorithms design methodologies on web based systems.

Globalized Arts

Our interactive world can take a creative product, such as a Hollywood film, Bollywood song, or Latin American telenovela, and transform it into a source of cultural anxiety. What does this artwork say about the artist or the world she works in? How will these artworks evolve in the global market? Film, music, television, and the performing arts enter the same networks of exchange as other industries, and the anxiety they produce informs a fascinating area of study for art, culture, and global politics. Focusing on the confrontation between global politics and symbolic creative expression, J. P. Singh shows how, by integrating themselves into international markets, entertainment industries give rise to far-reaching cultural anxieties and politics. With examples from Hollywood, Bollywood, French grand opera, Latin American television, West African music, postcolonial literature, and even the Thai sex trade, Singh cites not only the attempt to address cultural discomfort but also the effort to deny entertainment acts as cultural. He connects creative expression to clashes between national identities, and he details the effect of cultural policies, such as institutional patronage and economic incentives, on the making and incorporation of art into the global market. Ultimately, Singh shows how these issues affect the debates on cultural trade being waged by the World Trade Organization, UNESCO, and the developing world.

DMZ Crossing

Performing Emotional Citizenship Along the Korean Border

The Korean demilitarized zone might be among the most heavily guarded places on earth, but it also provides passage for thousands of defectors, spies, political emissaries, war prisoners, activists, tourists, and others testing the limits of Korean division. This book focuses on a diverse selection of inter-Korean border crossers and the citizenship they acquire based on emotional affiliation rather than constitutional delineation. Using their physical bodies and emotions as optimal frontiers, these individuals resist the state's right to draw geopolitical borders and define their national identity. Drawing on sources that range from North Korean documentary films, museum exhibitions, and theater productions to protester perspectives and interviews with South Korean officials and activists, this volume recasts the history of Korean division and draws a much more nuanced portrait of the region's Cold War legacies. The book ultimately helps readers conceive of the DMZ as a dynamic summation of personalized experiences rather than as a fixed site of historical significance.

Theatre in a Media Culture

Production, Performance and Perception Since 1970

As the media have increasingly become the lens through which we see the world, media styles have shaped even the fine arts, and contemporary theatre is particularly indebted to mass media's dramatic influence. In order to stay culturally and financially viable, theatre producers have associated theatrical productions and their promotion with film, television, and the Internet by adopting new theatrical practices that mirror the form and content of mass communication. This work demonstrates how mediatization, or the adoption of the semantics and the contexts of mass media, has changed the way American theatre is produced, performed, and perceived. Early chapters use works like Robert Wilson's 3D digital opera Monsters of Grace and Thecla Schophorst's digitally animated Bodymaps to demonstrate the shifting nature of live performance. Critical analysis of the interaction between the live performer and digital technology demonstrates that the use of media technology has challenged and changed traditional notions of dramatic performance. Subsequent discussion sustains the argument that theatre has reconfigured itself to access the economic and cultural power of the media. Final chapters consider the extent to which mediatization undermines theatrical authorship and creativity.

"With Media Convergence, Tim Dwyer has given us a bold restatement of the political economy approach for a 21st century media environment where traditional industry silos are collapsing, and where media users are increasingly engaged with the production and distribution of media and not simply its consumption. The book displays considerable attention to institutional detail and comparative analysis, and is well designed to provide a road map of current and future trends for policy makers and media activists, as well as students and future workers in the convergent media space." Professor Terry Flew, Creative Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology, Australia How will people access digital media content in the future? What combination of TV, computer or mobile device will be employed? Which kinds of content will become commonplace? Rapid changes in technology and the media industries have led to new modes of distributing and consuming information and entertainment across platforms and devices. It is now possible for newspapers to deliver breaking news by email alerts or RSS feeds, and for audiovisual content to be read, listened to or watched at a convenient time, often while on the move. This process of 'media convergence', in which new technologies are accommodated by existing media industries, has broader implications for ownership, media practices and regulation. Dwyer critically analyses the political, economic, cultural, social, and technological factors that are shaping these changing media practices. There are examples of media convergence in everyday life throughout, including IPTV, VoIP and Broadband networks. The impacts of major traditional media players moving into the online space is illustrated using case studies such as the acquisition of the social networking site MySpace by News Corporation, and copyright issues on Google's YouTube. This informative resource is key reading for media studies students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in media industries, policy and regulation.
