About PNEK Files
The PNEK FILEs are publication series published by PNEK – Production Network for Electronic Art Norway since 2015. In these three years we have launched four printed issues each focusing on various topics within the PNEK network. The aim of The PNEK FILEs from the very beginning has been to represent the PNEK nodes through visual documentation of their main activities- exhibitions, festivals, seminars and workshops. Through the printed and online publication series, we present the electronic art field to a broader public as well give an overview of available facilities and other opportunities within the network.
PNEK Files – Transitions
The PNEK Files #5 “Transitions” focuses on the fluctuations and changes that are a crucial element of every active art institution and of course, the art field itself. Therefore this issue also marks a shift in the format and content of the PNEK FILEs.
We see need for a more in-depth material and overview of the activities within the PNEK network and the field we are part of. Therefore from the fifth issue on, the visual documentation will be extended with critical reflections and thorough discussions about the state of the art and technology field in Norway. This will come through the interviews by the artists and art experts connected to PNEK activities.
Includes following interviews:
Ida Lykken Ghosh “Atelier Nord”
Daniel Slåttnes “Vegetal Connection”
Asbjørn Blokkum Flø “Electric Rain”
Christian Blom “Transitions at Notam”
Magnus Bugge “Soundtrack for Webcams”
Boris Kourtoukov “Machines that Judge Us”
