::fibreculture:: politics of a digital present
6 - 8 December, 2001, Melbourne

Noting a vacuum in critical Australian net culture and research, 
::fibreculture:: was founded as a mailing list in January 2001 by 
David Teh and Geert Lovink.  The purpose of the list has been to 
exchange articles, ideas and arguments on Australian IT policy and 
practice in a broad context.

The inaugural ::fibreculture:: meeting considers four key areas of 
net culture and research: theory, policy, education and the arts. 
Co-organised by Cinemedia and the Australian Centre for the Moving 
Image, a public debate on the evening of 6 December will precede the 
meeting.  The debate seeks to address these issues in dialogue with a 
wider audience.

A 2 day meeting follows the debate.  All are welcome.

Both events bring together a community of critical thinkers engaged 
with new media/Internet theory and practice, with a view to 
constructing a strategic program of how Australia might better 
support innovation, R+D and the applications and culture of new 
technology.

A reader has been prepared for publication prior to the 
::fibreculture:: meeting.  It can be ordered from the 
::fibreculture:: website (www.fibreculture.org).  Submissions of 1500 
to 3000 word short essays, position papers, or manifestos were 
invited that address at least one of the four key themes, and these 
were posted to the ::fibreculture:: mailing list and subject to peer 
review.

The aim of the ::fibreculture:: meeting is not to present formal 
papers, but to circulate papers in advance which can operate as a 
point of reference and basis for discussion during the meeting.

We aim to produce more readers, monographs, edited collections and 
newspapers.  Proposals to the list are most welcome for future 
publications.  We see this as one key intervention into the current 
political economy of commercial academic publishing and the "command 
economy" approach to academic production by DETYA.

From: Michael Mandiberg <Michael {AT} Mandiberg.com>
Subject: Multiples Show in S.F.

There's a "mixed" show up in San Fran with some net artists, and some 
analog artists.  The Valeries seem to have pointed a big finger at 
himself, but I wanted to point out all the other Digital Artists who 
are in the show.   MTAA, John F.Simon Jr, Michael Daines, Mario 
Hergueta, Peter Luining, Alan Rath, Karin Sander (her little people 
are made with the same technology that Michael Rees uses 
http://www.artspace.org.nz/shows/00_11.htm), and myself.

In this mixed digi/analog show, it is interesting to see where the 
media cross over, and blend into each other, and how the formal show 
affects choices.  Just because the show has some (probably minor) 
warhol piece in it, doesn't make grancher's paintings of screen shots 
relevant.  They could be relevant, but they could also be pretty 
gimicky, and as the (fake?) miltos says, just ripping off miltos' 
(already uninteresting) paintings.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

http://www.hainesgallery.com  (link will go to the page for the 
multiples show starting next thursday)

MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES:
AN ONSITE / ONLINE GROUP EXHIBITION OF
ARTIST MULTIPLES & EDITIONS

December 6, 2001 - January 5, 2002

Opening Reception:  First Thursday, December 6th 5.30 - 7.30pm
Curated by: emerging curator Amy Davila

Haines Gallery is pleased to announce its first group exhibition which is
comprised solely of artist multiples and editions. This show includes work
by Marina Abramovic, Polly Apfelbaum, Joseph Beuys, George Brecht, Rob
Craigie, Michael Daines, Mark Dion, Douglas Gordon, Valery Grancher, Ann
Hamilton, Damien Hirst, Mario Hergueta, Barbara Kruger, Peter Luining,
Michael Mandiberg, MTAA, David Nash, Dennis Oppenheim, Alan Rath, Karin
Sander, Jonathan Seliger, John F. Simon, Jr., Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith,
Fred Tomaselli, Mary Tsiongas, and Andy Warhol. The exhibition will exist
both physically and virtually, comprised of work by traditional and
experimental artists and thus emphasizing the extent of this art form's
context as a product, a concept and a methodology.

Multiple Personalities comments on the history of the multiple and addresses
the reasons behind this art form's development over time. Simply, a multiple
can be defined as an art object that is produced in a quantity of more than
one copy. However multiples are more than a technique used to produce art,
they are also "the embodiment of a theoretical standpoint in relation to the
entire artistic discipline." (Buchholz 1992) The multiple functions as a
vehicle for the transmission of ideas and as it is repeated referencing a
unique work, it becomes a denial of appearances and expectations. From the
60's to present day, "commercial culture thrives on duplication" just as
modern communication depends on repetition as seen in news media, corporate
ad campaigns, and commercial jingles, repetition is a technique used to
reiterate a message's importance and to give it validity, clarity and
strength.

Beginning in the 1960s, artists published multiples or object-editions by
themselves, Piero Manzoni created a work entitled "Merda d'Artista", which
was comprised of 100 cans of his own excrement. In New York, George Maciunas
began the production and distribution of Fluxus multiples, which were based
on the premise that art should belong to everyone by the means of mechanical
reproduction. For Fluxus artists, multiples were not only economical and
easy to distribute, but they were the best art form to present the ongoing
developments of the artists' ideas. Pop artists utilized mass-produced
objects as a commentary on consumerism, and by the latter half of the
decade, multiples became associated with the democratization of art.

Throughout history, the multiple has been seen as a vehicle for information
and way to de-emphasize the obsession and privileges of the art "object".
Utilizing the mass-distribution and communication of the Internet,
innovative printing equipment and model building software, net artists have
continued the philosophy of the art multiple to the highest degree.
Essentially, everything that is created on the net is a multiple. Technology
has given artists the means to truly dematerialize art. The digital art
multiples can be viewed on our website at www.hainesgallery.com and are
available for purchase online.

(Excerpts from Emily Rekow, Walker Art Center Department of Education and
Community Programs and Daniel Buchholz & Gregorio Magnani, "International
Index of Multiples: From Duchamp to the Present" 1992.)

JD considers himself to be a mixed-media artist who's focus is constantly shifting between Painting, collage, photography, street art, silkscreen and super 8 film.

While his roots are based in Urban Art, JD is now doing many permanent pieces. JD has done many group shows and a few solo gigs. He has been featured in "Dos De Dos" (6 pg. article) and the Portland Mercury... He is a proud member of the online artists collective www.art-aoa.com, the Colaspe think tank and the Esoteks.

Cause-B is a spray can artist from Seattle who is currently living in New York. He considers spray can art a vital element of hip-hop culture along with Djing, Breakdancing and MCing. These elements are linked by their flamboyant energy and as expressions of the urban experience.

In addition to spraycan art David has done computer graphics,
theatrical backdrops and children's illustrations. Other shows he has
appeared in include COCA's 'The Whole World is Watching' and Conworks'
'Evidence' which he co-curated.

*Pars:
The artist PARS uses imagery of delicate cartoon-like child characters set upon blurred environments and raw surfaces such as wood and metal. Pars' work covers canvas as well as these found objects and surfaces. His mediums consist of spray enamel, latex paint, and markers.

Faced everyday with advertisements and the visual noise of modern life, PARS looks to his childhood and memories of being young as his content. Yet, while exploring this innocent time of life, it is contrasted with bleak surfaces and somber emotions.

PARS resides in Seattle where he creates his art, plays metal and
paints it on occasion.

Subject: Debate: Critical Design Discourses #1

Critical Design Discourses #1

Visual Communication - Addressing the critical mass

Thursday December 6, 2001

De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics, Amsterdam

Start: 20.00 hrs.


Last year the "First Things First 2000 Manifesto" appeared in various
international design magazines. It was a call to designers world-wide to
develop a more critical approach to their profession. This call was signed
by an impressive list of designers, critics, editors of design magazines,
and art directors. The authors of the manifesto claim that an increasing
number of practitioners, designers, visual communicators, are becoming
increasingly uncomfortable with a very narrow definition of their design
practice, primarily geared towards effectively packaging and selling
consumer products. Designers should address their social and political
responsibilities more consciously, and apply their problem solving skills
to the multitude of urgent social questions that require solutions.

The text of the First Things First manifesto can be found at:
http://adbusters.org/campaigns/first/

Since its publication a certain discussion about the social and political
role and context of design has started, but this discussion is still very
much in its infancy. De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics in
Amsterdam, would like to provide new impulses for this discussion to unfold
and has decided to organise a first debate with a number of internationally
recognised specialist in the field of visual communication. In this debate
we primarily would like to make an inventory of the current status of
critical design discourses, well over a year after the publication of this
manifesto. There are many questions at hand; a critique of the experience
economy, sustainability, responsibility as business model, the relation of
design with the public domain, and the new multicultural and intensely
internationalised context in which design has to operate. What concrete
efforts have been made to address these questions?

Participants in the debate are; Jamie Hayton (SP) designer and head of the
design department of Fabrica (IT); Wendelin Hess (CH), graphic designer and
art-director of Grenzwert Magazin; Mieke Gerritzen (NL)
graphic designer and co-author of "Catalogue of Strategies"; and Femke
Snelting (NL) designer and member of De Geuzen - Foundation for Multivisual
Research.

The debate will be chaired by Max Bruinsma (NL), ex-editor in chief of the
design magazine Eye (London), independent critic, and 'editorial design'
instructor.

The debate can be followed live via internet at: http://www.balie.nl/live
