How Rog Multifested the Manitudes of LOGOS

Peter Purg / Tue, 01/29/2013 - 11:24

After the rather optimistic kickoff on 12.12.12. at 12:12:12 and -12 Centigrades, the baffling "online month" began. We were all more/less trying to make "joint online preparation of international workshop participants" actually happen. For what? For the "LOGOS - Multitude Manifestations of Rog" short mobility run within our bravely piloting "Media Arts and Practices" programme. What for?

MAP Progressing on all Tracks!

The Media Arts and Practices master programme has started -- today in full-formal, and -frontal interaction, at the University of Nova Gorica, School of Arts in Gorizia, taking off as a bold pilot, into the great wide open of promising productions and intriguing collaborations. We have been together for two weeks now, for a gradual tune-in, on the prodigy wings of our Alvarez-the-Flying-Fortress (to open ceremoniously on Tuesday - come in!), with open windows and doors for all the fresh ADRIAiR influx..

It is nice to know that there are many others with doubts on how to ensure financial sustainability of projects, and especially jointly run programmes, assure concrete exploitation, manage motley and manifold consortia...

Komiža mobility pre-pilot landed

Peter Purg / Fri, 07/20/2012 - 11:52

Just landed safely, back from splendid isola-tion: last week's successful "pre-piloting" of our "Studio" module ambition on the beautiful island of Vis in Croatia went well. Next year Komiža is to become a "specific site" the the Media Arts and Practices MA programme annual mobility experience. And just like last year already, both the Rijeka and the Nova Gorica schools participated in the Komiža New Media Port (Video Vortex Summer School) international gathering in the town of Komiža, July 7-15, 2012.
