Berkeley Center for New Media/Art Techonology & Culture Colloquium [ATC] presents: Mark Tribe and artist who will discuss Mediation, Performance and the Public Sphere.
In 1968, protesters outside the Democratic National Convention in Chicago chanted “The whole world is watching,” and shortly thereafter their images appeared on the evening news. These days, protesters bring their own cameras and post their clips on YouTube. Has participatory media effected a structural transformation of the public sphere? How have media technologies and practices changed the roles of public space, performance, and the human body in politics? How have new forms of mediation and distribution altered the ways in which history is produced and experienced?
Mark Tribe will discuss recent work and current projects, including a video archive of police surveillance of activists, a Skype video remake of a scene from a Godard film, a video installation that reimagines a cover performance of Jimmy Hendrix’s famous Woodstock rendition of the US national anthem, reenactments of Vietnam-era protest speeches, and panoramic video installations that reproduce these reenactments.
