Teaching // Call for glitch-course readings!

Meanwhile at SAIC Chicago && Amsterdam
A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to come teach at Michael Dieters course "Critical Media Art", which is a master course subject at the new media master program at the University of Amsterdam. The same day I was also over at skype to teach at the School of the Arts Institute Chicago in Jon Saroms Class about "Glitch Art".

The difference between the two classes was big; both took 6 hours but while Michael Dieters course was mostley theoretical, Jons course was more pratically / interview - style. A part of the interview the students did with me was published by Olivia Rogers in F-NewsMagazine (the SAIC paper) last week.

These are the texts Michael Dieter collected and made the students read for the glitch-class. I added these and more glitch related texts to the gli.tc/h wiki - you can find links to the actual texts there too. A selection of my own, artifact related writings can be found here
