Space : Network : Memory – Dunedin 13-15 September 2013


Space : Network : Memory is the 8th ADA Network symposium. ADA symposia have a formidable reputation for critical collegial exchange within the expanded field of digital and media arts. This September in Dunedin we mark a decade of ADA Symposia in response to themes generated by the three year ADA Network research project Mesh Cities Christchurch.

Space : Network : Memory  will engage you with a broad range of practices and approaches necessary for rethinking the contemporary city, the networks that surround and emerge from it, and the memories it holds.

Space : Network : Memory will include artists, designers, media practitioners and performers, urban planners, historians, theorists, curators, writers, educators, and storytellers.

Space : Network : Memory recognises that the situation of post-quake, post-‘blueprint’, transitional Christchurch generates problems and possibilities for all of Aotearoa/New Zealand. The DUNEDIN symposium continues this discussion. Dunedin being an historic city with many evident remains of the past, yet, for seismic and economic reasons these environments are in transition and their stories are under threat. Dunedin’s historic warehouse precinct is one focus of discussion, and will feature as a site of conversation. Space : Network : Memory will engage closely and playfully across Dunedin city.

Space : Network : Memory will include presentations, conversations and works responding to histories, architectures, art and media as they interplay and feedback with civic processes, and/or re-engage people in urban and public spaces.
