The launch of
Wednesday 12 December 2007. 7.30-9.30pm at De Veemvloer -- Van
Diemenstraat 410, Amsterdam / The Netherlands
Book launch plus live performance by Oorbeek.

Please join us to celebrate the launch of the "Architecture of
Interaction" book at the Veemvloer, Amsterdam. For artists who
participated in this project there will also be the opportunity to pick up a
free copy of the book.

The interest in and the use of interactive methodologies continue to
grow among artists, curators and art institutions and funding bodies. Yet
every artistic
discipline and even each independent artist uses their own individual
language to describe interactive works.
There is currently no common feature to these languages. "An
Architecture of Interaction" is a project realised by a core group of six artists
and theorists who have set out to develop a communicatory toolbox that
can be used to talk about and compare the processes, meanings and
effects of interactive work, especially the stages of interactive work
where no outcomes or precise outlines can be defined a priori.

"An Architecture of Interaction" arose from a desire to connect
vocabularies, to develop a more sophisticated discourse and to share the
eclectic and hidden ideas
and processes involved in interactive works in disciplines ranging from
theater, performance, music, dance, film and the visual arts to new
media. The main goal is to make interactive working methods more
tangible. It is ostensibly a discussion document for artists from very
different backgrounds, but is also a resourceful insight into the tricky zones
of interactivity for those with a personal and/or professional interest
in interactive work such as critics, curators, commissioners and
audiences.We think of interactive working methods as a meta-discipline, that
is to say, interactivity as a field that informs other disciplines.
Interactive working methods can be applied to any artistic discipline.
For us, the important element is that interactive methods have qualities
that are concerned solely with interaction and can be considered
outside the framed discourses of specific disciplines.

This book has been made by makers for makers. It covers six important
elements to consider when making an interactive work. The book's main
authors are the artists Anna Best, Yvonne Dröge Wendel, Nikolaus
Gansterer, Lino Hellings, Mine Kaylan and Klaas Kuitenbrouwer. Coordinated by
Wietske Maas.

»Die Welt als virtuelles Environment«
published by order of TMA Hellerau by Johannes Birringer, Thomas Dumke and Klaus Nicolai

Through cybernetic »machines« and networks, the world experiences virtualisation in a way so far unprecedented. This makes the difference between the existing and the possible as well as between reality and simulation, as encountered in our everyday perception, barely detectable. In the miscellany at hand authors from various professions and backgrounds approach the globally expanding cybernetic »spheres of the possible« and illuminate risks as well as opportunities, particularly in communication and action via networked virtual spaces.
The driving question behind it all is how and whether the telematic »revolution« taking place at the moment will lead to a radical cultural change. This book is addressed to artists, engineers, pedagogues, philosophers, politicians and sociologists and, above all, to those who practically deal with new media technology on a day-to-day basis.

Autors: Johannes Birringer, Ghislaine Boddington, Sonia Cillari, Scott deLahunta, Jo Fabian, Mick Grierson, Dave Griffiths, Friedrich Kirschner, Bojana Kunst, Michael Takeo Magruder, Bia Medeiros, Klaus Nicolai, Florian Rötzer, Detlev Schneider, F. Scott Taylor, Yukihiko Yoshida and others
