Andrew Lowenthal on Citizen Video and Networked Politics in Southeast Asia

Citizen video in Southeast Asia has exploded in recent times, and has come to play a significant role in national and regional politics, documenting spectacular events, spearheading campaigns and uncovering scandals.

In this discussion, Andrew Lowenthal — Co-Founder and Executive Director of EngageMedia, an Asia-Pacific human rights and environmental video project — outlines EngageMedia’s approach to video4change and their work in the region, in particular looking at West Papua, (a remote region of Indonesia that has been waging an independence campaign for more than 40 years), the development of regional, cross-border and multilingual video networks, and the effect and possibility of the internet and online media to generate new post-national political configurations and collaborations.

Dalida Maria Benfield on Decolonial Media Aesthetics and Women’s ICT4D Video

ICT4D (Information Communication Technology for Development) powerfully frames women’s grassroots video production in the Global South, much of which is distributed widely through YouTube. Often, these videos reproduce racialized and gendered discourses – legacies of colonialism – in their narratives of economic, social, and technological progress. However, there are also videos by women’s groups that defy both the historical linearity and spatial fragmentation of the ICT4D framework, and instead remix, reclassify, and globally reconnect women’s experiences in the contemporary moment. In this talk Dalida María Benfield — artist, activist, and Berkman Center fellow — discusses how ICT4D videos make compelling claims for other historical narratives and visions for women’s future lives, identities, and uses of information communication technologies.

Radio Berkman 167: The Ghost of Video Future

Listen: or download | …also in Ogg

The future of video lies within our grasp, people.

Powerful new technologies and web services are available that not only make video available anytime, anywhere, but also make sharing and creating easier than ever, all over the world. Think of the smartphone revolution; the explosion in high bandwidth connectivity; and the millions of channels available to make your video available to your friends, or the world.

But this future is still elusive at best. Think of remixers sued for using copyrighted content; the fact that most networks in the world are still choked or filtered; and a simple, but threatening lack of media literacy.

Today we report back from a conference meant to redefine the future of video for the good.

The 2nd Annual Open Video Conference brought together filmmakers, students, thinkers, inventors, hackers, businessfolks, and lawyers for panels, screenings, performances, and exhibits, all focused on the future of video.

We talked with Tiffiniy Cheng and Holmes Wilson, co-founders of the Participatory Culture Foundation, about some technologies in the works to make video more accessible. We spoke with keynote presenter Adam Chodikoff, senior producer of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, about the value of the mainstream media. And we put together our own ad hoc panel to help us define what Open Video means and how we can get it.

Radio Berkman 154: A (Video) Day in the Life

If a picture is worth a thousand words, and video moves at 30 frames per second, how many words could you get for 24 hours of footage?

Today’s guest started a project that may have the answer to that question.

The Global Lives Project picked ten subjects from around the world, followed each of them with a camera for 24 hours straight, and is now sharing the footage of their lives with the world, uncut, unaltered, in museum exhibits and online.

It’s fascinating enough as an art project. But for David Evan Harris – a trained sociologist and a Research Affiliate at the Institute for the Future – the project also raises interesting questions about the role multimedia can play in the more traditional world of academic research.

If you’re near San Francisco you can experience the Global Lives Project for yourself at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts until June 20, 2010.

Listen in here for a sneak preview.

Radio Berkman 127: Video Killed the Video Star

Is the idea of a mainstream video culture dead? TV news anchors, sitcom stars, and A-list actors are losing ground to the groundswell of citizen journalists, independent web series creators, and the occasional cats falling off of pianos on YouTube. If everyone is a producer, what role will video play in our lives in the future?

This was one line of questioning taking place at the first ever Open Video Conference in New York City this past June. In addition to the producer question were questions about the sharing of creative works, and questions about how we can make it technologically cheaper and easier to share, collaborate on, and deliver video in the future.

Today’s Radio Berkman is a report back from OVC, with Amar Ashar, Chris Peterson, and Catherine White of the Berkman Center.

Special thanks today to Catherine White who gathered audio from the OVC!
