//////////////////////////////////////
RE:COMBO RADIO: checking the re:combination
//////////////////////////////////////

*1.44 Mbytes visual and/or sonic noises are invited for the following 
experience:*

You are invited to participate in _Checking the Re:combination_, a 
multimedia project of collaborative sound + vision production, that will 
come to an end with a 3-night experience in the production and 
recombination of social, moral, and political issues in a wired world.The 
experience will be developed in an alternative format: the sounds and 
pictures that will be used in the intervention will be collected through 
the internet. You can collaborate just sending your movie clips, images or 
sound files attached by e-mail to: recombo {AT} manguebit.org.br; texts articles 
or questions can be send from the website (www.manguebit.org.br/recombo). 
All the collected material will be collected an recombined during the 3 
days long Abril Pro Rock Festival (www.abrilprorock.com.br), when the 
audience physically present will intervene in the installation. Texts 
produced for the event and chat rooms will be available at the website. The 
main goal is to develop a democratic and decentralized participation of all 
rather than the usual one-speaks-for-all.

The live on-site experience will be held at Pernambuco Convention Center, 
Recife, BRAZIL, during the "Abril Pro Rock Festival", April 19-21, 2002.

_CHECKING THE RE:COMBINATION_ is an experience developed by the musical 
collaborative group RE:COMBO (www.manguebit.org.br/recombo) and the 
graffiti artists group SUBGRAF (www.manguebit.org.br/subgraf), with the 
collaboration of LUCIANO MEIRA, Ph.D., professor of Psychology at the 
Federal University of Pernambuco (www.ufpe.br)

"Rhizome, Net Art tendencies"

Executive director of Rhizome.org, a nonprofit art organization that 
acts as a kind of a community platform to present new media art, to 
establish a critical dialogue about new media art and provides access 
to new media art through an archive. Most of the programs are online: 
Rhizome has a e-mail listserv, which has become quite popular, with 
discussions and announcements. Also there is a big online database of 
critical writing, with over 1500 articles which are all indexed. 
Rhizome is starting to archive art works as well and is also doing 
events where net artists show their work and talk about it.Rhizome 
produces two free email services which distribute information 
provided by and for the Internet community: Rhizome Raw (unfiltered) 
and Rhizome Digest (edited) both containing announcements of new 
media art projects, events, festivals, conferences and exhibitions, 
press releases, calls for work, reviews of new media art projects, 
interviews with new media artists and commentary on related issues. 
Raw is rather important because it's this kind of unfiltered, 
unmoderated new media discussion thing, and there are around 350, 
kind of hard core subscribers. The Digest is for everybody else who 
is too busy to read 40-50 emails a day from the Raw, it is filtered 
in the Rhizome TextBase, a searchable library of over 1500 articles. 
You can do a search on gender or interactivity, person reality or 
flash and you will come up with articles and also artworks.

- - Rhizome: concepts, objectives, accomplishments and future plans.
- - Are there actual tendencies in the net-art field?
- - Different lenses with which Mark look at net art: formalism, 
conceptualism, identity, narrative, performance, database, aesthetics.

extensive museum Web sites." Gallery 9 is a site for project-driven 
exploration, through digitally-based media, of all things "cyber." 
This includes artist commissions, interface experiments, exhibitions, 
community discussion, a study collection, hyperessays, filtered 
links, lectures and other guerilla raids into real space, and 
collaborations with other entities (both internal and external).

"Shadow Garden"

Theme:interactive installation art "Shadow Garden", "interactive 
mini-theatre" game-like set of pieceinspired by experimental 
psychology, especially the infamous experiments of Stanly Milgram.

"I've been programming computers since I was 10. I dropped out of 
high-school when I was 17. I was the Director of Technology and later 
a Research Fellow for the PC game company Origin/Electronic Arts. I 
then founded my own game company called Titanic (which sunk after its 
first voyage) where I co-created an distributed-server Internet game 
called "Netstorm". Since then I have been producing interactive 
installation art in various forms such as a collaboration with the 
Spanish theatre company "La Fura dels Baus". My pieces have shown in 
various galleries in Europe and the US and will soon open into the 
permanent collection at the San Jose Tech Museum. I have written, 
lectured, and consulted extensively on many aspects of interactivity 
from game design to programming".

Ministry of Education under the auspices of Michel Serres, he 
developed a network concept known as "Arbres de connaissances" (Trees 
of Knowledge) with Michel Authier.

Lévy is also interested in collective intelligence studied an 
anthropological context: Collective intelligence is an intelligence 
which is distributed everywhere, continuously valorised, co-ordinated 
and mobilised in real-time; it ischaracterised by democracy in 
real-time, an inventive aesthetics and an economy of human qualities; 
it is multi-dimensional and multi-sensual, linked to the body and to 
the earth; it is concerned with re-materialisation, not 
de-materialisation. Most of his work has not yet been translated.

AN ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE COALITION

The do-it-ourselves solution

by YASSER ABED RABBO and YOSSI BEILIN

     For the founders of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace
     Coalition, there is a possible way out of the present
     murderous impasse in the region: a return to the
     agreement drawn up at Taba in January 2001. Two of those
     who drew it up, one Israeli and one Palestinian, propose
     an alternative way forward.

MILOSEVIC IN THE DOCK

The Balkans show trial *

by our special correspondent CATHERINE SAMARY

     Yugoslavia's former president, Slobodan Milosevic, has
     regained some popularity since the start of his trial for
     war crimes. The contradictions are now becoming apparent
     in the approach and remit of the International Criminal
     Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. And the role of the
     West in the break-up of that country is being publicly
     questioned.

                               Translated by Malcolm Greenwood



The case for the war crimes tribunal *

by XAVIER BOUGAREL

     The Hague trial of Milosevic is necessary but reveals the
     limits of such proceedings, since the court does not
     operate in isolation from historical events and is not
     immune to local and world political power struggles.

US breaks the laws of war

by OLIVIER AUDEOUD

     The United States has invented a new category of captive,
     not covered by the Geneva Convention: 'unlawful
     combatants'. And it has made sure that nobody can
     question this unilateral designation by holding the
     prisoners taken in Afghanistan in the
     no-nation's-territory of the Guantanamo base on Cuba.
     What, legally, is going on?

REUNITING A DIVIDED ISLAND

Cyprus, north and south

by our special correspondent NIELS KADRITZKE

     Final negotiations about the future of Cyprus began this
     year; it has been divided since 1974. Cyprus is a
     contender for EU membership, but to get in, Greeks and
     Turks will have to agree on its status, and Ankara will
     have to approve. Brussels has promised substantial
     funding for the Turkish north.

THE OTHER 'ANTI-TERRORIST' WAR

Chechnya: Russia, get out now *

by VICKEN CHETERIAN

     Moscow is still stuck in the Chechen quagmire, despite
     all its claims that it is dealing with the 'terrorism'.
     Russian army atrocities have failed to crush resistance,
     Chechens no longer collaborate; both sides will have to
     return to negotiating a settlement, and better sooner
     than later.

THE BERLUSCONI EFFECT

High price of Italian prosperity *

by PIERRE MUSSO

     Two million people took to the streets of Rome last month
     to protest against terrorism, against economist Marco
     Biagi's assassination and against Sylvio Berlusconi's
     government. Behind the protest and beyond the politics,
     Italian capitalism is being profoundly restructured.

WE DIDN'T VOTE FOR LIBERALISING UTILITIES, DID WE?

Europe: market not community *

by BERNARD CASSEN

     The European Union's decision-taking bypasses Europeans
     and their elected representatives to impose on them
     neo-liberal, anti-social economic policies, all in the
     name of Europe. The EU regularly overrides democracy for
     the benefit of private wealth and influence.

HOW TIANANMEN PROTESTS LED TO THE NEW MARKET ECONOMY

China: unequal shares *

by WANG HUI

     The crushing of the 1989 social movement in Tiananmen
     Square was a turning point in Chinese history. The
     movement was far bigger than the liberal, student protest
     we all saw before the world's news cameras; it extended
     right across the people. The destruction of the movement
     unblocked China's transition to the market economy, but
     the state system remained fundamentally authoritarian and
     inequalities have grown.

NAZIM HIKMET: CENTENARY OF A GREAT POET

The tree with blue eyes *

by JOHN BERGER

     Nazim Hikmet, one of the greatest poets of the 20th
     century, Turkish, a communist, was born 100 years ago.
     His work is about the universal nature of love and the
     fraternity of beauty; he was one of those rare people who
     matched his actions with words.

Albany, New York, April 22, 2002 - Intelligent Arts, Inc. announces the
launch of ArtsElectric, a new on-line calendar, internet directory, and
information resource for new music and media arts.

"Our mission is threefold," says Joel Chadabe, composer and president of
Intelligent Arts, Inc. "We want to share our enthusiasm with the general
public about the fascinating cutting-edge developments in music and art
happening in today's world. We will promote the musicians, artists, and
producers who are creating and presenting this music and art. And we
will
provide a central information resource for curators, presenters, and
other professionals who need to know what is happening in these fields."

Event and artist information is provided to users through: a regularly
updated and dynamically searchable database; feature articles focused on
key people, projects, issues, and events; highlighted mentions on
important pages within the site; and a monthly email newsletter.

All articles and features will be archived, indexed, and kept accessible
indefinitely.

The internet directory will direct users to websites of other resources,
organizations, and media centers, as well as associated artists and
presenters.

ArtsElectric also introduces the Artists' Guide to the World, a database
listing artists' restaurant and hotel recommendations, travel tips, and
other travel-related information. The Artists' Guide to the World, a
travel resource for artists on the road, will grow into an informative
and useful resource for anyone who enjoys food and likes to travel.

The startup team of ArtsElectric includes Joel Chadabe, New York, as
Executive Editor; Angela Plohman, Amsterdam, as European and Media Arts
Editor; Alicia Zuckerman, New York, as North American and Music Editor;
and Robert Gluck, New York, as Associate Editor.

Dear all

Personally I'd have called this journal Perspectives on
Human Evil and Wickedness (PHEW). An opportunity
missed in my opinion. Anyhow, this seems a timely
opportunity to reason about Terrorism.

Best wishes

CALL FOR  SUBMISSIONS

Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness  (PEHW)
ISSN: 1471-5597
Volume 2. : July 2002  (themed issue:  Terrorism)

Please be advised that the due date has been changed to May 15.

Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness publishes scholarly and
creative work, personal reflections, and practitioners' accounts
relating to classifying, defining, and probing different aspects of
evil. It aims to shed light on the genesis and manifestations of evil as
well as on the diverse angles from which humans can understand, tackle,
surmount, or come to terms with it. Perspectives on Evil and Human
Wickedness does not espouse any ideological viewpoint or favor any
specific theoretical framework, but interrogates a plurality of
perspectives aimed at advancing research on this topic.

Submissions are sought for the July 2002 volume to be devoted entirely
to the theme of terrorism. The volume hopes to present a panoply of
possible angles from which to engage this topic.  A wide array of
relevant theoretical, critical and professional perspectives is,
therefore, encouraged.  Of most interest will be contributions that add
to, alter and/or deepen, our current understanding of the phenomenon of
terrorism.

Topics may include:

Labels and Definition(s)
Binary thinking and cultural stereotypes in the discourse on terrorism
Manichean visions of good and evil
Clash of civilizations scenarios
Leitmotifs, imagery and rhetoric in the political discourse on terrorism
Globalized terror
Jihad and Islamic fundamentalism
Terrorism and Late Capitalism
Gendering terrorism
Cyber terrorism
Virtual terrorism in film
Terrorism in the media
Religious/philosophical/historical/legal perspectives on terrorism
Socio-political analysis of root causes

The first volume of this e-journal is available at:
