McLuhan effects
2 to 4th of November, Aix-en-Provence, France

For the centenary of Marshall McLuhan, Alphabetville, Zinc and the School of Arts in Aix-en-Provence, in collaboration with Leonardo/Olats, Iméra, Seconde Nature, Cité du Livre, INA and Selfworld, propose three days to understand McLuhan’s thought and its effects. With artistic works, conferences, readings, films, demos, talks, archives, some artists, theorists, scientists, philosophers, will look to McLuhan to consider him from an historical aspect to a present dimension, from electronic to digital medias, and into the global information and networks, ever called the « global village » by McLuhan.

Topics : Art, technic, environment ; Globalization and frontiers, which kind of changes ? ; Arts in the « global village » : forms, aesthetics, critics, governances

Scientific direction : Colette Tron, Alphabetville, Jean Cristofol, School of Arts of Aix-en-Provence, Emmanuel Verges, ZINC, Roger Malina, Leonardo/Olats and Iméra. And with the valued help of Derrick de Kerckhove, Toronto University. Programme : www.alphabetville.org   –   http://tinyurl.com/3uo5oej
