6TH ASIA-EUROPE ART CAMP: Ludic Times | The Art of Gaming
22 ­ 29 July 2008

The Asia-Europe Art Camp project is an initiative set up by Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) in 2003 focusing on New Media Art. The project aims at developing a platform to promote dialogue between art students from Asia and Europe, to learn more about each other¹s contexts, cultures and be inspired
during a week of lectures, workshops and public events. Focusing more on the creative process than on the 'artistic product', the Art Camp has been designed as a learning experience and an opportunity for professional development.

Built upon the achievements of the previous five Art Camps, the 6th Art Camp will gather 20 young artists or students, usually in their final year of study, from ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) countries for an intensive week of workshops, lectures and meetings as well as artistic and collaborative work.
A team of Asia-Europe artistic advisors and resource persons specialised in art and technology will lead and facilitate the workshops during the Art Camp.

On the sidelines of the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) 2008 and the Asia-Europe New Media Arts Policy and Practice Meeting, the 6th Asia-Europe Art Camp to be held in Singapore is conceptualised around the theme of gaming and will focus on the nature of our contemporary ludic
culture while taking into account psychology of gaming and theories of gaming (as tools for social development and awareness, real-life situation simulations, artificial and augmented realities, serious games for education and games as an art form). Electronic, internet-based and pervasive games
and their roles in urban society will be discussed as well as the possibilities for Asia-Europe game development collaborations and industry-artist-researcher partnerships.

The 6th Asia-Europe Art Camp is organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation in partnership with the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) 2008.

· Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) seeks to promote better mutual understanding and closer cooperation between the people of Asia and Europe through greater intellectual, cultural, and people-to-people exchanges. These exchanges include conferences, lecture tours, workshops, seminars and the use of web-based platforms. Established in February 1997 by the partners of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), ASEF works in partnership with other public institutions and civil society actors to ensure its work is broad-based and balanced among the partner countries.


The Cultural Exchange Department (CE) of ASEF seeks to provide young artists and cultural professionals with a unique environment for dialogue that can evolve into positive artistic interventions, dynamic cultural networks and cultural policy development in and between Asia and Europe. CEıs areas of co-operation are young artistsı exchange (new media, photography, dance and music), process oriented platforms and networks (museums, independent cinema and autonomous cultural centres), dialogue on policy and culture, and a vision for an Asia-Europe Cultural Portal (Culture360).

· International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), initiated in 1988, is the worldıs premier media arts event for the critical discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in interactive and digital media. Held biannually in various cities throughout the world, this migratory event is being held in Asia for the second time in its history, after Singapore successfully secured this bid. ISEA 2008 will consist of an internationally juried media art exhibition, a peer reviewed academic conference and various invited exhibitions, workshops and partner events. Hosting ISEA 2008 represents both an incredible opportunity for Singapore team to define, shape and affect media and cultural developments in Singapore, as well as in the Asian region and beyond. It seeks to include as many culturally diverse perspectives from the Asian region to encourage cross-cultural dialogues on the possibilities and opportunities of media technologies globally.
