Authors of the Future (BE). Re-imagining Copyleft. Constant(BE).

Authors of the Future (BE). Re-imagining Copyleft. Constant(BE).

An online presentation of Authors of the Future, with a focus on the Cinemas Sauvage license. This license shows the pitfalls and fun (im)possibility of coming to an agreement with a bunch of anarchist people who do not want to agree on a rule.
Conventional intellectual property law binds authors and their hybrid contemporary practices in a framework of assumed ownership and individualism. It conceives creations as original works, making collective, networked practices difficult to fit. Within that legal and ideological framework, Copyleft, Open Content Licenses or Free Culture Licensing introduced a different view of authorship, opening up the possibility for a re-imagining of authorship as a collective, feminist, webbed practice. But over time, some of the initial spark and potentiality of Free Culture licensing has been normalized and its problems and omissions have become increasingly apparent. ‘Authors of the future’ is an ongoing research trajectory in which we start re-imagining copyleft together.

Can we invent licences that are based on collective creative practices, in which cooperation between machine and biological authors, need not be an exception? How could attribution be a form of situated genealogy, rather than accounting for heritage through listing names of contributing individuals? In what way can we limit predatory practices without blocking the generative potential of Free Culture? What would a decolonial and feminist license look like, and in what way could we propose entangled notions of authorship? Or perhaps we should think of very different strategies?

Constant is a non-profit, artist-run organisation based in Brussels since 1997 and active in the fields of art, media and technology.

Constant develops, investigates and experiments. Constant departs from feminisms, copyleft, Free/Libre + Open Source Software. Constant loves collective digital artistic practices. Constant organises transdisciplinary worksessions. Constant creates installations, publications and exchanges. Constant collaborates with artists, activists, programmers, academics, designers. Constant is active archives, poetic algorithms, body and software, books with an attitude, cqrrelations, counter cartographies, situated publishing, e-traces, extitutional networks, interstitial work, libre graphics, performative protocols, relearning, discursive infrastructures, hackable devices.

Ars Electronica Garden in BERGEN, Norway. Piksel Cyber Salon.

Ars Electronica Garden in BERGEN. Piksel Cyber Salon.

Piksel is an international network and annual event for electronic art and technological freedom. Part workshop, part festival, it is organized in Bergen, Norway, and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free technologies.

Piksel Cyber Salon is the Ars Electronica Garden in BERGEN, Norway.

Designed by the Mexican artist Malitzin Cortés, the hub hosts the exhibition COPY/PASTE curated by Antonio Roberts, featuring the work of 5 artists who all incorporate copying as a core aspect of their work. The exhibition aims to show that copying is natural, encouraging to re-think the way we create/share/copy and paste.

Piksel is also presenting two performances and two lectures. The duo Antonio Roberts/Alex McLean will introduce us into the Live Coding ALGORAVE; Maya Minder, part of the Hackteria group, expands the DIY Bio Art Piksel program with the “Worship – Dinner Performance”. Taking elements of #asrm (autonomous sensory meridian response) Maya and her online partners explore how to online broadcast emotions through sounds. The lecture “Authors of the Future. Re-imagining Copyleft” by Constant, reflects about authors licensing and creative collective practices, and at last, the curator Antonio Roberts will introduce us to the artists and the concept of the COPY PASTE exhibition.
