[2]  -empyre-  "What is to be done?" (Art and Education) for Documenta 12

The Art Gallery of Knoxville was asked to participate in an online
discussion on the list -empyre- as part of Documenta 12 during the
month of January.  The topic presented for discussion is "What is to
be done?" in regard to Art and Education.  The conversation will
continue until the end of January - at which point it will be archived
and edited for publication through the Documenta 12 Magazine Project.

You can participate in the conversation, or read archived documents online at:


[3]  Podcast Videos

If you have not subscribed to our Video Podcast - now is the time!
The podcast is FREE and hosts interviews, documentation of talks, and
artist videos.  The videos added this month preserve something
special.  With help from the fine people of criticalartware, we are
making available three works by video art pioneer Phil Morton.  Morton
began teaching at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1969 -
founding the video department within his first year.  He founded the
Video Data Bank (one of the premiere archives of video art in the
country) in 1972.  Along with Dan Sandin, Morton authored the
"Distribution Religion" from which our current exhibit is inspired.

The entire hour long tape of Morton's video epic "General Motors" from
1976 is now available for download.

This Friday - two videos: "Program # 7 (Revised for TV)" and "Program
# 9 (Amateur TV)" from 1979 by Phil Morton and Jane Veeder will become

These are amazing works !!  They are critical to the early development
of video as Art - and frame the concern of Video Art as a distributed,
social tool.  These videos will be available for free download on the
Gallery podcast by everyone.
