glocal heterotopies: art, activism and technology

Artnodes is a space which focuses on the study of the intersections between art, science and technology and which are articulated via networks and, particularly, on the Web. Artnodes has its structure in the progressive construction of monographic dossiers which, once open, will remain active and interrelate with each other, thus constituting nodes within a network of interrelated knowledge. The november' node is devoted to glocal heterotopies, a reflexion on art, activism and technology.

'Heterotopias' refers to the concept created/used by Michel Foucault, David Harvey, E.Soja or Marc Augé -among others-. "We do not live in a kind of void, inside of which we could place individuals and things. We do not live inside a void that could be colored with diverse shades of light, we live inside a set of relations that delineates sites which are irreducible to one another and absolutely not superimposable on one another... I am interested in certain [spaces] that have the curious property of being in relation with all the other sites, but in such a way as to suspect, neutralize, or invent the set of relations that they happen to designate, mirror, or reflect" (Of Other Spaces by Michel Foucault*. March, 1967). The Panopticon is used by Foucault as a metaphor for a state-system of control over its citizens through geography and architecture; Heterotopies being spaces escaping this system. Movilization against war in Irak can be a real exemple of this kind of spaces.
