Call for entries
Deadline: 1 December 2011

JavaMuseum –
Forum for Internet Technology in Contemporary Art

is happy to release the call of the 2nd version of

a+b=ba? – art + blog = blogart?
to be launched online on 1 January 2012.

Due to a dynamic technology, “blogging” is representing
a most popular way to start and publish community orientated
activities on the net.

Also many artists are using “blogs” for keeping the community informed
about the latest artistic activities, as well as using this concept
for an alternative away to create online based art works.

However, users and art enthusiasts are confused in finding out
what’s art – intentionally or unintentionally.

JavaMuseum, since 2000 one of the pioneers on the field of Internet based art, started in 2007 a discussion by releasing v.1.0 of
a+b=ba? – art + blog = blogart?
http://www.javamuseum.org/2007/a_and_b/
which became one of its most most popular projects
still attracting many visitors until these days.

Now in 2011 and after four years of the rapid online media developement,
JavaMuseum would like to explore again the state of art
of “blogging” as a community addressed and based form of dealing with artistic concepts online, and is calling again for artists who are using “blogs” and “blogging” for expressing their artistic ideas.

These are the requirements:

1. max 2 project proposals can be submitted

4. only projects released after 1. January 2008 are elgible for being submitted
5. the “blog” must be kept online at least 2 years ahead after the release on JavaMuseum, i.e. available online at least until 31 December 2013.
