The MA is designed to provide post-graduate study for individuals from a broad range of backgrounds: new graduates who wish to develop a distinctive practice in order to succeed in a highly competitive industry, those in media industries who would like to use their extensive experience to expand the scope of their professional practice, those from a visual arts background who wish to incorporate time-based media into their practice. The course is a highly appropriate mode of study for those wishing to prepare for further study at PhD level.

hothaus series: paradigms and perspectives in media arts

12:00 am in Publication by bloc

Date: Published June 2006
Website: http://www.vivid.org.uk/projects.php?work=33
Location: england

Outline:

The hothaus seminar series (2003-2005) created a discursive forum for people interested in new forms of art, curation and distribution; situating media arts within a wider context of contemporary visual practice and highlighting the crossovers between media arts, science and popular culture. In doing so it aimed to challenge the widely held assumption that media arts are exclusively digital and/or electronic, principally internet-based, and therefore only of interest, and accessible, to a specialist audience.

hothaus series:perspectives and paradigms in media art was launched in June 2006 featuring papers presented in the series.

Including contributions from Nina Pope, Paul Ramirez-Jonas, Jem Finer, Brian Duffy, Paul Granjon, Simon Yuill, Martin Reiser, Anthony Auerbach, Drew Hemment, Caitlin Jones, Sarah Cook, John Bird and Martijn Stevens.

`(hothaus series covers an) interesting and highly relevant range of topics – an achievement in itself to identify core baselines in such a fast changing arena- with fascinating and, at times, quirky papers.`
- Helen Cadwallader, ACE national officer for visual and media arts.
