At the end of February, Claire was invited to give a talk at MEXSU, the Centre for Mexico-Southampton Collaboration. The talk was entitled ‘Mapping the Americas Online: Latin(o) American net.art and the Aesthetic Production of Space’. Claire gave a snap-shot of her current project and forthcoming monograph on net.art, showcasing as examples the works of Brian Mackern, Coco Fusco and Ricardo Dominguez.

A lively discussion followed the talk, with plenty of time for questions. Interesting possible collaborations could be in the offing, particularly with Jane Lavery’s research on Mexican author Ana Clavel’s multimedia fictions, and her proposed new project on Multimedia Women.
Thanks to Jane Lavery for the invitation, and the MEXSU centre for organizing the event. Latamcyber hopes to reciprocate the invitation soon!
