Blog, one of the most spread forms of expression on the web, varying from personal diaries to community weblogs, professional knowledge exchange resources, political campaigns and more. In their different manifestations, blogs (moblogs, videoblogs, photoblogs, etc.), became a phenomenon influencing in many cases upon social and cultural areas: journalism, politics, alternative knowledge sources, literature, art, etc.
The ¿blog? project takes blog as art and as a stage for net artworks investigating the language, the aesthetics, the impacts and the practices of blogs, blogging and the blogoesphere.
In this context, it's worth mentioning the blog.art project --one of the first projects dealing with the notion of blog as art -- operating for about a year and publishing blog-defined art projects.
¿Blog? project acts (is envisioned to act) as a platform for an open discussion on the topic and as a pool for submitting works. No-org.net invites submissions of art projects making use of blog as a tool, subject, or both as well as texts investigating the blog-art interplay in a broad sense.
Selected texts and artworks will be exhibited (separately) on the
no-org.net website. The launch of the project will be accompanied by an
opening event and the discussion, that will get documented on the
Deadline for submissions: 30.10.05
