<nettime-ann> Open call: HACK.Fem.EAST. Women and technology in networks.

Women and technology in networks.

Hallo everybody,

We are organizing an exhibition project at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien 
in Berlin, sponsored by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds, with support from the 
Institut fuer Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa). The exhibition is opening on 
Firday, 9 May 2008 and is going on till 22 June.

Exhibition's topic is HACK.Fem.EAST - Women and technology in networks 
in the Eastern countries. We would like to involve women from Slovenia, 
Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Rumenia, Hungary, Poland, Czech 
Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Latvia and the other Baltic countries to 
present their work. You can find the project's description above: main 
topics are media, art and hacking.

Central idea is to involve artists to develop independetely their 
concept in one of the 14 rooms of the Kunstraum Bethanien and be part of 
the network formed by the all groups and arsists/activists.
We have already contacted some people, but we are still looking for 
interesting projects to add in the exhibition.

please, let us know if you are interested!

Women and technology in networks.

Exhibition, workshops, conference.
A project curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli and Gaia Novati.
9 May - 22 June 2008, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien Berlin
Sponsored by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds, with support from the Institut 
fuer Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa).

The exhibition project in Berlin, HACK.Fem.EAST, seeks to present 
experimental and artistic practices of artists and activists working in 
digital networks in Eastern Europe.

The focus of the exhibition is on presenting a use of media located 
somewhere between hacking, art and activism which is driven forward by 
an international counterculture and avant-garde: the main protagonists 
are women or projects in which women play an important role.

The aim of the project is to provide and to develop a network platform. 
This will be achieved through five elements: the exhibition, the 
workshops (Free Space), a conference, a publication in newspaper format, 
and a website bringing the aspects of the project together.

Existing networks from 11 countries are at the heart of the project and 
form the basis of the exhibition. A total of 11 networks will be invited 
to the various rooms of the Kunstraumes Kreuzberg/Bethanien to introduce 
their work, their strategies and their aims in the form of 
installations, documentations and presentations. The result is a 
"network of networks", visualized in the form of video screenings, 
installations, computer presentations and documents.

The activists will be offering a weekly workshop (Free Space) throughout 
the duration of the exhibition. The workshops will be based on the 
respective presentations in the exhibition as well as on and aims and 
activities that have been developed further in the context of the project.

A conference held at the outset of the project is intended to bring the 
lines and networks together and discuss on women perspective in the 
Eastern cultural scenario. Its aim is to provide a forum for a form of 
politics based on radical invention - media and internet art projects, 
performances, network platforms, software development, artistic coding, 
organisation of media festivals, etc. As part of the publicity for the 
exhibition, a Berlin daily newspaper (taz) will be publishing a 
so-called NGO-supplement in an edition of 30.000 copies to coincide with 
the opening. It will include articles that provide an introduction to 
the subject and give details regarding the programme.

An integral component of the project is of course the website, with an 
up-to-date and open presentation of the project's processes and 
developments, summarizing them and putting them up for discussion.
