Mike Ruiz: The Future Gallery
Mike Ruiz is an artist, curator, and co-founder of the Berlin-based project Future Gallery. He will share his experiences starting and growing a exhibition space in Berlin, discuss curatorial perspectives surrounding new media and Internet art and provide speculations for the future of art dissemination in an Internet-conscious world.
Future Gallery is an exhibition platform for fresh artistic positions ranging from works on paper to websites. The idea: to grow a gallery out of a temporary space with the aim of relocating it to a future gallery space. Out of immediacy the space was initiated in the living room of its founders Anne Betting and Michael Ruiz. Since its inception in February 2008, the space has hosted an ambitious program of exhibitions and events showcasing an exciting list of international artists. Through its unorthodox platform and exhibition program Future Gallery seeks to pose questions about the future of art presentation.
Seminar of postgraduate students is initiative of Digital laboratory and postgraduate students of AVU in Prague. Seminar represents a platform for introduction of theses that clarify practical perspectives of art in society and social interaction and highlights some common basic philosophical and sociological concepts in the sphere of current tendencies.
