Locative Media e Psychogeographie

Ontem poste minha psycogeografia pessoal nos percursos marcados por um GPS na srie CiberFlnerie. Como postei anteriormente, em agosto de 2007, comea dia 19 de junho, em Manchester, uma srie de eventos (exposies, conferncias, performances): “TRIP, Territories Reimagined: International Perspectivas”. O evento prope intervenes urbanas sob o signo da “psicogeografia”. Esse um dos temas importantes de projetos “bottom-up” e artsticos com as mdias locativas, como tenho destacado nesse Carnet. Trata-se de um retorno s prticas situacionistas e dadastas de deriva e apropriao artstica das ruas. Sobre os situacionistas aconselho o livro de Mario Perniola (tenho a verso espanhola, “Los Situacionistas. Historia crtica de la ltima vanguarda del siglo XXI). Vejam mais informaes sobre o evento aqui. O programa pode ser baixado em PDF aqui.

No blog do evento pode-se ler:

“(…) Over the past century, psychogeography has played an increasingly important part in the radical re-thinking of urban space. From the Situationists who were active in Paris during the 1968 riots, to major London novelists of the 1990s like Iain Sinclair and Peter Ackroyd, to many of todays leading urban designers, psychogeographic experiments continue to produce unusual and provocative approaches to the city.

For the first time in the UK, TRIP brings together psychogeographers from all over the world, to show new work, exchange ideas, and create new energies. TRIP explores the many and various directions in which artists, performers, writers and theorists are taking psychogeography in the twenty first century. TRIP is a new event, combining an art festival and a conference, alongside a parallel programme of fringe activities. Activities are taking place at various venues in Manchester, including URBIS, Green Room, the Royal Exchange Theatre, and Manchester Metropolitan University. TRIP’s academic conference is organised by Manchester Metropolitian University and takes place at the John Dalton Building, Oxford Road. Its programme of papers includes several speakers who will produce artworks or performances for the public.(…)”
