VIENNA FESTIVAL 2001

du bist die welt
24 Episodes about Life Today

FILM THEATRE PERFORMANCE VISUAL ARTS LECTURES DISCUSSIONS MUSIC

A project curated by: Alexander Horwath, Katrin Klingan, Hedwig Saxenhuber,
Georg Schöllhammer  and Hortensia Völckers


June 1st - 24th  2001, Künstlerhaus Wien
opening night: May 31st
A project of the Vienna Festival in cooperation with the k/haus

Newsletter #1

"You are the world!" This appeal from the global consumer and culture
industries is now heard everywhere. It is directed just as much at the
"flexible" worker in western Europe as at a shopping mall visitor in
Shanghai; it serves right-wing demagogues as much as emancipation movements.

What specific living conditions, what contradictory realities lie hidden in
the promises of this appeal? Today, artists from the most diverse
disciplines are concerning themselves with this question. Their eye is drawn
to processes of transition, towards situations, biographies and places in
motion.

"du bist die welt" offers a terrain for these observations: film makers from
China investigating the radical changes in their country, Argentinian
theatre projects talking about the traumas of the dictatorship and of
globalisation, sociologists from Europe critically analysing new forms of
work, and fine  artists tackling questions of nationalism, racism and
migration. Videos and performances reflect the tension between tradition and
modernity in areas of conflict such as the Lebanon after the civil war,
post-Soviet Armenia or present-day Uganda. Diverse sounds tell of the
construction of national
feelings  (for example in Belgrade), of the diasporic identities (e.g. in
the New York Latino communities), or of cosmopolitan mobility (such as the
electronica sites of Riga, Vienna or Buenos Aires).

"du bist die welt" includes film, fine art, theatre, performance, music,
lectures and discussions by artists, among others:

Subject: CALL for SUBTITLES

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

SUBTITLES: writings on the foreignness of film
issue editors: IAN BALFOUR and ATOM EGOYAN

subtitles {AT} alphabet-city.org

deadline for submissions: fall 2001

www.alphabet-city.org


Alphabet City is soliciting projects that explore the idea and the
actuality of the foreignness of film. We take it that film now operates in
a more or less global environment, in which issues of translation come to
the fore. Every film is, for some audience or another, a foreign film, and
perhaps not only in terms of language. We want to think collectively about
the foreignness of film, its historical and not-so-natural character. The
current moment of flux in film's status in relation to TV, video, internet
transmission, et. al. offers an occasion to make sense of film's
transformed and transforming character. The presence of subtitles-a
doubling of words and of word as image-will serve as a point of departure
for thinking about what is more broadly at work and at play in the
imbrication of word and image in the always potentially foreign film.

Alphabet City is a book series produced by an international collective of
editors, contributors, and designers formed in 1991. The collective is
dedicated, in its anthologies, to combining theory, literature, and
politics with the work of artists and architects. Over the past ten years
Alphabet City has demonstrated how collaboration, thoughtful design, and
critical engagement can create a new kind of publication that articulates
fresh possibilities for reflection in a time of rapid global change.
Alphabet City's editorial collective is distinguished not only by its
presentation of the highest quality contemporary literature, essays,
photography, art, and architecture, but also by its commitment to design
principles that have earned it high praise and awards.

Since 1991, Alphabet City has published the work of the following, among
many others: Stan Allen, Ian Balfour, Georges Bataille, Stephen Andrews,
Étienne Balibar, Maurice Blanchot, Christian Boltanski, Svetlana Boym,
Catherine Bush, Massimo Cacciari, Eduardo Cadava, Rebecca Comay, Drucilla
Cornell, Lynn Crosbie, Jacques Derrida, Atom Egoyan, Deborah Esch, Nuruddin
Farah, John Greyson, Ryszard Kapuscinski, Thomas Keenan, Julia Kristeva,
Laura Kurgan, Alphonso Lingis, Detlef Mertens, Farshid Moussavi, Sherin

another operating system. Getting both to run easily next to each other is
often a big hassle.
In this workshop, we'll show you how it's done. Subjects covered are:
- - partitioning your harddisk with tools like FIPS and partition magic
- - using multi-boot utilities as LILO

The doc shows Dobie Williams, a black man on death row in Louisiana,
awaiting his execution. Although in the doc itself Dobie Willams gets a
stay, he eventually got killed on January 8, 1999.
The day after his execution Sister Helen Prejean wrote:
For the first time, I believe, I befriended a truly innocent man on death
row. Innocence or guilt does not matter to me in struggling against the
death penalty. I do not believe the state should
be torturing and killing people, even guilty people. But this man, Dobie
Williams, a 38-year-old indigent black man, I believe, was railroaded to
death for the death of a white victim in a small,racist Southern town. He
fit the death row profile perfectly, especially
in the South: a poor black man accused of killing a white woman with an
all-white jury as the constitutionally guaranteed "jury of his peers." He
had a terrible defense -- no defense.
The prosecution got everything they asked for -- including Dobie's death
last night -- after 14 years and 12 death dates and stays of execution.

Thu 19-04: Mumiaplein: "BUSINESS BEHIND BARS"
- ---------------------------------------------
Part 1 US, Part 2 Australia", Catherine Scott, 104 minutes.

Part One: USA is about business behind bars in the United States. The film's
main focus is on the jailers and the glitzy commercial arena of the prison
industry. This is contrasted with the world of their captives living out
their
confined lives on the inside. How do these parallel and opposing universe
affect each other? What happens to justice in a market driven climate where
money is made out of deprivation of liberty.

Part Two: Australia
Australia has the highest proportion in the world of inmates in private
prisons. These facilities are financed, built, managed and owned by US and
UK
corporations. Part Two questions prison management and accountability, and
reveals the personal struggles of inmates and former prisoners: deaths in
custody, self-harm, riots, surviving after release. Issues of law and order
and mandatory sentencing confront us daily. Is the combination of a private
prison industry and harsher sentencing polices the way to go? We're dealing
in
a situation where society as a whole is clamoring for a so-called get tough
on
crime approach, locking up more and more people for longer and longer
periods
of time and that inevitably has an effect on the kinds of conditions people
i
are locked up in.

Time: 19:30. Free entrance

MSF Drop the Case petition

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) asks you to support South Africa's efforts to
make essential medicines more accessible to its people by signing the global
petition below by April 15.

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
We, the undersigned, support the South African government's efforts to make
essential medicines more affordable and accessible to its people through the
medicines act passed in 1997. Therefore, we call on the 39 pharmaceutical
companies that are blocking implementation of this legislation with a
lawsuit to withdraw immediately from the case.

With over four million already infected with HIV, South Africa has the
highest number of people living with HIV/AIDS in the world. Very few can
afford the treatment that has extended and improved the lives of people in
richer countries. Since 1998, the pharmaceutical industry has blocked the
medicines legislation, claiming it would infringe on their patent rights.
During that period, 400,000 South Africans have died of AIDS-related causes.
High prices are effectively denying medicines to poor patients, condemning
them to a premature death.

We call on the 39 pharmaceutical companies to withdraw immediately and
unconditionally from this case. And we call on governments to support the
people of South Africa by also urging the companies to drop their case.

Sign the Drop the Case petition by April 15
http://www.msf.org

Thank you for your concern,
Medecins Sans Frontieres

Press Release
hybrid<life>forms
March 31 - May 12, 2001
Opening Friday, March 30, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

installations: Michele Barker, Kate Beynon, Justine Cooper, Brenda L Croft,
Linda Dement, Wade Marynowsky, Tracey Moffatt & Gary Hillberg, Patricia
Piccinini, Melinda Rackham, Rea, David Rosetzky, Robyn Stacey
web works: Zina Kaye, Anita Kocsis,  Mary-Anne Breeze, Francesca da Rimini,

computer animation: Fay Maxwell Owen-Greene
In collaboration with the Australian curators Josephine Grieve and Linda
Wallace, the Netherlands Media Art Institute has organised the exhibition
hybrid<life>forms: Australian New Media Art. Most of the Australian artists
will be presenting new work which has never previously been seen in Europe.
hybrid<life>forms takes the viewer into the lush undergrowth of contemporary
Australia: strange confessions, dark memories, hybrids. As has been the case
for its flora and fauna, Australia's isolation has had peculiar effects on
its artists too. They bring invisible life to the surface in various ways,
producing unexpected results.
The enormous diversity and vitality of technological growth is central to
hybrid<life>forms. Like Europe, Australia has been quick to pick up on new
developments. Australian artists immediately went in search of the worlds in
and behind the computer, reflecting upon and experimenting with the complex
distinctions and connections which created a sanctuary for new visions. The
artists in the exhibition reflect on both digital media and cultural and
social life.

Patricia Piccinini's work The Breathing Room reflects on the tensions which
arise as soon as new technological developments (electronics, biochemical
and gene technologies) enter everyday life. In "The Breathing Room" we seen
fragments of a body, moving pieces of skin, accompanied by quiet breathing.
What we see is recognisable, but not wholly real. Suddenly, without any
clear reason, the images appear to be caught up in panic. In her photo
series west/ward/bound Brenda L Croft throws light on how black and white
live together in contemporary Australia. In general, the Aboriginal people
are portrayed as exotic, alien, other. With her work, Croft makes it
personal.
Justine Cooper's installation and videowork Rapt lets us see the inside of
the body. Making use of 'Magnetic Resonance Imaging,' Cooper scanned her
body. She manipulated the results into a poetic vision of a world in which
we literally live. Tracey Moffatt, well known in The Netherlands, acquired
wide recognition with her videoworks Night Cries and Heaven. In her new
work, Artist, (in collaboration with Gary Hillberg) she sets before us the
Hollywood stereotype of the creative, tortured and suffering artist.
Outtakes of artists from classic Hollywood films, documentaries and TV
programmes, crossing the screen in quick montage, show us the different
stages of inspiration, creation, and subsequently the destruction of
paintings. In a comic manner, Artist breaks through the romantic aura that
Hollywood has created around artists. After the production of a number of
CD-roms, including Cyberflesh Girlmonster and In my Gash, multimedia artist
Linda Dement returns to photography with her project Euridyce. Like her
CD-roms, her digital photographs exhibit her macabre and immediate manner of
working. Seen from a feminist perspective, representatives of "monstrous
femininity" encompass desires, revenge and violence. With Euridyce, Dement
demonstrates that photography still has much to offer. This serie of images
has been produced in response to Kathy Acker's story Eurydice in the
Underworld.

This project is assisted by the Australia Council, the Australian
Government's arts funding & advisory body, through its Audience and Market
Development Division and New Media Arts Fund, the Prins Bernhard
Cultuurfonds

Biography
Roman Minaev Soerensenstr. 26 24143 Kiel Germany romanminaev {AT} hotmail.com 27th October 1970 born in St.
Petersburg/Russia 1994-2000 Muthesius Academy of Architecture, Design and Fine Arts, department of printmaking,

Academy of Architecture, Design and Fine Arts, Kiel/Germany 

Statement
The original idea of the trashconnection is the definition of trash online. Everybody, who is just surfing around the net, has to
confront with always appearing advertising banners, icons or trademarks. By mirroring them with the permanent addresses in
the HTML-code on the web, the direct connection is created. The current appearance of such banners depends alone on the
initiator. This process lends an incontestable actuality to the entire work, until all the segments resolve in the internet.
Furthermore the Trashconnection shows digital creations of net-art.
