In Memoriam: Hannes Leopoldseder

As I write this I am searching on line for information about Hannes Leopoldseder. Hannes just died of Covid19 a few days ago. I was contacted by Michaela Wimplinger at Ars Electronica and asked to remember Hannes. As I searched on line I realised again how bad the internet is designed to remember the important or relevant events, people and ideas. Lets apply some radical caring.

In Memoriam: Carlota Rosenfeld (1943–2020)

Carlota Eugenia Rosenfeld Villarreal (Santiago, June 20, 1943 - July 24, 2020), was a Chilean visual artist who contributed to the deepening of the neo-avant-garde from the Escena de Avanzada, a movement of artists and writers that developed in the Chilean art scene after the coup d'état of September 11, 1973. Linked to the Fluxus movement, within the materials present in her works, it is common to see the use of waste, audiovisual technology, and the use of simple elements for disruptive operations of political connotation.
