    The many voices that compose the contemporary culture world. Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and USA. Intellectuals, artists, activists, researchers, managers in profound debates regarding pressing details. What’s the role of the author in the digital context? What’s good and what’s bad? Who defines? What about the economy of creation? What are the alternatives for business models? Is the Digital Culture just the Internet? Or is it a new media ecology? What came before? What’s next? What are the perspectives for this mutating world?

    A culture made from networks articulated using the technologies of their time. The contemporary culture doesn’t like rigid hierarchies or vertical control. It’s not top to bottom. It’s bottom up. From the basis to the centre. From the peripheries to peripheries. From one place to everywhere. From everywhere to everywhere. From everyone to everyone. Decentralization. Free architecture and protocols. Conversation. Meetings that make virtual articulations stronger. May the different networks meet in one place.

    This circus tent, with around a hundred seats, will be occupied by meetings of different networks that are articulated through the social network Culturadigital.br. The activities will be developed by their proponents and open to the public.

    Dialogue and conflict. Dialogue is conflict. Democracy. New technologies and not so new visions. The impact on regulation, legislation, management, politics. Slow processing of a quick reality. What is yet to come? What do we want to build? Brazil is a pioneer country in terms of looking at the internet as a free territory. Will the State continue to be the tool used to deepen this idea? Or is the State going to criminalize the movement? The movements. Networked articulations, transitory or definitive, horizontal and plural. Dialogue and Conflict. Direct Democracy.

    This space, with around forty seats, will host the most current debates regarding the national and international scenery. Discussions proposed by the civil society and the government will take place here. A greek amphitheatre that will host only the voices of the (un)happy. All of it broadcasted live.

  • Bob Stein, from the Institute for The Future of the Book, is another confirmed guest for the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum

    Since 1985 Bob Stein has been on the forefront of rethinking knowledge for the digital era. He was one of the founders of the The Voyager Company, an enterprise that published CD-ROMs with an interactive approach to different subjects when this kind of media was still new and unexplored. His participation in the company lasted for more than 10 years and helped to transform it’s name into a synonym of quality.

    Nowadays Stein is the director of the Institute for the Future of The Book and is still pursuing the development of means to build and share literature as defined on the project’s website: “Academic institutes arose in the age of print, which informed the structure and rhythm of their work. The Institute for the Future of the Book was born in the digital era, and so we seek to conduct our work in ways appropriate to the emerging modes of communication and rhythms of the networked world”.

    It is to share his experience with different mediums and discuss what lays ahead in the process that Stein will join the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum. Ipad, Kindle, apps, networking and sharing the reading experience should be some of the themes approached during his participation.

    The event will be free for attendance and broadcasted on the web. Further details and programme will be published on this blog.

    For more info on Stein’s ideas keep an eye on the institute’s blog or read this interview.

  • Miss Geralda Awaits at the Brazilian Digital Culture Forum

    One of the first things that the visitors of the Cinemateca de São Paulo will see when they get in during the II Brazilian Digital Culture is this crazy machine above. It is called Geralda and it is some sort of electro-acoustic orchestra with more than 70 different sound sources, all controlled by one man´s hands, elbows, knees, head and feet. This man is called Tato Taborda, and he created the machine with Alexandre Boratto. Taborda is a composer, pianist and former music teacher at Universities such as Estacio de Sá and UniRio. He will be at the Forum with his creation and his technician Alexandre Fenerich and also special guests during the three days of the event (15th, 16th and 17th of November). The first confirmed guest is the multi-instrumentalist Carlos Malta, who will participate on the first day with a pedal specially made for his participation with Geralda. The idea is also to have everyone that goes to the Cinemateca interacting with the machine as well. You can have an idea of what is going to be welcoming everyone at the Cinemateca on the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum with the video below. More details about Geralda´s participation and about the whole programme of the Forum will be posted in thisblog soon.

  • Eduardo Navas Will bring a perspective on Remix at the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum

    The internet is a space where information flows back and forward, being freely assimilated and the returned in a different shape and context. The culture of remix is something that speaks directly with the theories of post-modernism, but also goes beyond it. Eduardo Navas is in an expert in remix and will be joining the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum on the debate “Digital Culture beyond the internet: Remix and Transmedia”, which is aligned to the third axis (Symbolic Dimension: Transmedia) of the themes approached by the event.

    Navas is a researcher that maintains the website Remix Theory, a repository of his findings and also an important source for other researchers and remixers. Exploring subjects such as Design, Architecture, Music, Gaming, Politics and video Navas shows how all these areas are interconnected and how the web blurs the borders between them.

    As he explains, the website “does not focus on the latest information, but on relevant material to the history of Remix, some which may have been published years ago” which helps to give an historical and theoretical background to the concept of remixing, showing that the terms goes way beyond than the usual connections made with music.

    Besides his experience with the website Navas is also a teacher and academic researcher with a PhD in Art History, Theory and Criticism from the University of California, San Diego, and has also coordinated art galleries, participated in jurys for art prizes and is regularly giving lectures at universities and colleges such as the Otis College of Art And Design, San Diego State University and Pennsylvania State University.

    The event will be free for attendance and broadcasted on the web. Further details and programme will be published on this blog.

    More info on Navas here, where it´s possible to read some os his work, reviews, presentations and works such as “Diary of a Star” (pictured above) which is a weblog based on Andy Warhol´s diary, and “The Quixote” a hypertexted and interactive reinterpretation of Jorge Luis Borges´“Pierre Menard: autor del Quijote.”

  • Gilberto Gil and John Perry Barlow will meet again at the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum

    John Perry Barlow and Gilberto Gil, who will open the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum on the 17th of November

    In 1996 Gilberto Gil, just one year after the beginning of the commercial use of the internet in Brazil, wrote a song called “Pela Internet” (“Through the internet”) using the web as a platform to release it, a pioneer move in country that was still learning how to deal with the brand new technology.

    Almost at the same time, in Davos, Switzerland, John Perry Barlow wrote his “Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace”, a strong statement of the will to maintain the cyberspace free, in a time when the governments from the north-west corner of the world, as he puts it, were starting to realize the libertarian space of the internet.

    These two pioneer visions of the web met in 2003, during the event Tactic Media Brazil, to discuss the perspectives of digital inclusion and participative politics. Gil had just been invited to be the Minister of Culture and the debate that followed influenced the policies that were developed by the Brazilian government in the following years.

    These paths of coincidence will cross again on the 15th of November during the opening debate of the II Brazilian Digital Culture Forum, when the past will be remembered, but the future will also be contemplated. After being a central character on the process of putting these two important figures together, Claudio Prado will also mediate, instigate and add his insights to the debate.

    The event will be free for attendance and broadcasted on the web. Further details and programme will be published on this blog.
