From: "Perrier" <perrier {AT} balmoral.de>

Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral is an institution of the Foundation for
Culture in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. It promotes international artists
through the allocation of residential fellowship. The Kuenstlerhaus also has
the objective of reaching the public through events such as lectures,
seminars, concerts and exhibitions.

>From May 30th to  June 1th 2003 Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, together
with the Institut fuer Kunstwissenschaften der Universitaet Koblenz -
Landau, Campus Koblenz is planning an international Media Arts Conference
called Bad Emser Medienkunsttage (BEM). Alongside to established scientists
younger scientist as well as media artists are welcome to express their
thoughts on the possible influence of new media in art and society and to
reflect if new technologies have brought new means of expression in
contemporary art. The conference is open to the public and
interdisciplinary. The speakers will be selected by a call for paper. We
would appreciate your proposal of young scientists from your institution to
take part in the Media Arts Conference Bad Ems, Germany. The speakers will
be selected by a jury, other interesting lectures will be published.

At the same time Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral shows the exhibition "art
bytes". Some of the art works in the exhibition gave the idea for the Media
Arts Conference, others are new works that show the influence of the New
Media on art and also that there is no exact separation between traditional
art and media art.

The main questions of the Media Arts Conference Bad Ems are:

1 Who 'owns' the new virtual rooms? What would an adequate presentation look
like in museums, galleries, public spaces, at home?
2 To what extent do new technologies influence our concept of art? What
effects do they have on artistic content and form? How are these new kinds
of art to be judged in terms of quality?
3 How does the use of new technologies change our perception?
4 What effect does this have on society?

Scientists and artists who would like to apply for Media Arts Conference Bad
Ems as a lecturer should send a short abstract (max. 1 page) about the
proposed topic, a short curriculum vitae and a bibliographie to:

In art, photography, film and New Technologies have developed new means of
expression, which have aesthetic and social consequences - or should we
rather say that society has developed possibilities of expression, which
reflect changes in ways of thinking? Media artists, who articulate
themselves only through digital technologies, take the medium as the
message, as an instrument to open up new freedoms. What started as a
self-reflexive system around the medium - in this sense a version of l'art
pour l'art -, opens its (cyber-)space  for new ('think'-)rooms, in which
text and picture  converge, time is measured in real time, virtuality
emerges as a new reality, simulation makes new forms of being possible.

The New Media use the internet and the computer, film, photography and video
are alienated, virtual realities are generated and the viewer participates
interactively in the construction of New Media works. The question is, to
what extent does art benefit from the new technologies and how do they
affect its development?

In the nowhere-land of the 'net new models of communication, new forms of
society and hierarchies, virtual landscapes and architectures arise. Spatial
and temporal distance is questioned as is the representation of the body:
eternal youth,  dream and trauma, idyll and horror, reality and fiction. Are
we confronted with the dissolution of the self or the power and manipulation
of and over individuals? Are appearance and being interchangeable in these
utopias? Do other cultural roles arise through the play with virtual

This congress deals with the main questions at the point of intersection
between (media-)art and new technologies:

Alongside established scientists, younger scientists and (media-)artists are
especially welcome to express their thoughts and ideas on this topic. The
speakers will be selected by a jury of international experts.

This event will take place in cooperation with the Institute for
Media-Sciences (Institut fuer Medienwissenschaften), University of Basel,
Prof. G.C. Tholen and the Institute for Media-Communication (Institut fuer
Medienkommunikation (IMK)), Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Monika
Fleischmann/Wolfgang Strauss.

HUMO: A mobile platform for the rapid deployment of huge images.
Master class with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer
Ars Electronica Center, Linz, 3 - 7 February 2003


This intensive experimental workshop will invite participants to develop 
and present urban interventions using a mobile platform for the projection 
of huge images. Basically, we will place the world's most powerful 
projector (which produces 60 x 60 metre images with over 100,000 ANSI lumen 
intensity) on the back of a pick-up truck together with a diesel generator, 
a GPS tracker, a pan/tilt platform and an assortment of lenses. The project 
will consist of rapid deployment of strategic images to transform urban 
landscapes. Logos, emblematic buildings, quotidian spaces, suburban malls, 
advertising billboards, etcetera will be the targets of unannounced, 
unregulated ephemeral interventions. Documentation of these projects will 
be an integral part of the workshop, as the conditions of possibility of 
legal/political/aesthetic viability are fast, short interventions below the 
radar of potential regulators.

More about Rafael Lozano-Hemmer www.lozano-hemmer.com

The workshop will have the following sections:
1. Theory and precedents, imparted by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and theorist 
Brian Massumi
2. City scouting
3. Conception and development
4. HUMO realization
5. Documentation and publication

The HUMO workshop is limited to 10 participants. We seek to attract a 
diverse group of professional artists who may have already worked with 
public space and who are comfortable working with digital imaging. The 
participants will be selected by evaluating a statement of interest (Max. 
500 words) and a curriculum, which should emphasize previous works that 
might illustrate technical or conceptual resonance with the HUMO workshop.

Application details and further information: http://residence.aec.at/humo
Contact: eva.kuehn {AT} aec.at
Deadline for application: 17 January 2003.

The HUMO master class is an EncART project supported by the European 
Culture 2000 program. EncART (European Network for Cyber Arts, partners: 
Ars Electronica Center, C3, V2_, ZKM).

"Interactive computing" once referred to the paraphernalia and
procedures which enabled reciprocal data entry and output between a
machine and its human operator.  A keyboard, pointing device, and
some lines of alphanumeric text were typical terms of this to and
fro.  As the relationship evolved, cognition made its way into our
definitions of "human computer interaction," with a shift of emphasis
from the mechanics of the process to its conceptual accessibility.
And eventually the nature of data extended to pictures, sounds, and
3-dimensional space.  Today interactive technologies have evolved
into a medium through which we interact not so much with our
computers as with other people and with our environment.  The
computer itself has become an interface to culture.  As wireless
networks, body-sensing apparatus, and smart appliances proliferate,
the old challenge of exchanging messages with a machine has given way
to a scenario in which the machines are capable of tracking our every

Some artists wholeheartedly embraced the interactivity proposition.
If viewers as co-creators could shape the flow of events, then-it was
assumed-their engagement with the work would be enhanced.  Other,
more circumspect artists noted that the act of choosing does not
necessarily yield an aesthetic experience, or add meaning to the
observer's process of apprehension.

Media artist Jim Campbell, for one, has dispensed with the premise of
user control in favor of systems that measure and respond to changes
in their surroundings. Campbell points out that the "choice and
command" interface suitable for word processing, data management, or
playing games usually fails as a metaphor for dialogue or for
adaptive unfolding.  "Attempting to create systems that respond and
progress in recognizably non-random, but at the same time
unpredictable ways, I have tried to create works that have destinies
of their own."

Rather than requiring viewers to choose from a predetermined set of
prerecorded outputs, the "reactive artwork" poses a system in which
viewers' actions constitute an integral yet extemporaneous component,
and it displays an immediate reflection of a state in perpetual
change.  Through mimicking and engaging our cognitive faculties, such
work prompts us to examine our habitual ways of perceiving, while it
invites improvisation, resulting in potentially lyrical,
multi-sensory meditations on the nature of reality.

These concepts, as well as themes of perception, memory, control, and
everyday space, are common to the sensor-laden media artworks of
Campbell, Scott Snibbe, and Crevice, a Toronto-based art collective.

Campbell's clockworks manipulate our sense of time, compelling us to
recalibrate the way we experience it.  Snibbe and Crevice's
installations experiment with the spatial properties of camera and
projection frames, and invite viewers to act on the screen.  Such
works, says Snibbe, "increase their compositional complexity,
salience, and meaning, as more and more viewers take part in them."

The symposium is part of and deals with the theme of the Dutch Electronic 
Art Festival  ‘DEAF03 Data Knitting’, organized by V2_, Institute for the 
Unstable Media (25 February - 9 March 2003 in Rotterdam)

The symposium will be in English.

Publication available: see text below.

Symposium ‘Information is Alive’

'Information is Alive' focuses on archives as unstable, plastic, living 
entities. Information storage, processing and transmission take place on 
many levels: individually, in our memories; collectively, in stories, 
rituals, laws, celebrations, games, concepts, language, image and 
architecture; biologically, in fossils and in bodies as living forms; and 
technologically, in archives and databases. In the last 20 years 
information has been stored and retrieved more and more by means of digital 

Unlike more classical archive models, digital databases need not be ordered 
hierarchically, for they are made accessible through highly complex linking 
technologies which no longer need to work linearly, as they did with 
old-style computers. Search engines can be designed to find the proverbial 
needle in the haystack or even to create a haystack where there are only 
needles. A digital archive, like the human memory, need not be a static 
system. The value of what is stored lies in how it can be used in the 
present, lies in it's operationality instead of its meaning. Memory is a 
process that functions in the present and is continually updated through 
that mode of functioning.

Research into neurological, social, cultural and evolutionary information 
storage  lived archives of habits and practices, continuously being broken 
down and rebuilt  provides a model or tool for understanding the 
possibilities of multilinear and nonlinear archiving. The atomization of 
the archive in the database has made the whole ‘Art of Memory’ into a 
technological, interactive art that suddenly becomes a highly urgent topic. 
First, for all those institutions that feel the need to ‘open their 
archives’, second for all those who describe and study modes of being, 
third for all those who design and use our new archives, be it books, 
websites, cities or other forms. The theme of the symposium lies in the 
exploration of unexpected developments that may arise through the storing, 
linking, reprocessing, transforming and complexifying of what otherwise 
would simply have remained as raw data.

‘Information is Alive’ brings together a high profile and interdisciplinary 
group of scientists, theorists, artists and architects who will present and 
discuss their ideas and projects and invite the audience to enter into 
active public dialogue.

Lectures by:
Arjun Appadurai (IND/USA), anthropologist, professor at Yale University. 
His recent research focuses on ethnic violence and the modern nation-state. 
Appadurai is writer of ‘Modernity at Large: Cultural Dimensions of 
Globalization’ (1996).

Simon Conway Morris (GB), palaeobiologist, professor of Evolutionary 
Palaeobiology at the University of Cambridge (GB). In 1990 he was elected 
Fellow of the Royal Society. Conway Morris has done field research in the 
most diverse places, such as China, Mongolia, Australia and Greenland. He 
has published, among much else, ‘The Crucible of Creation’ (1998).

Ingo Günther (D), artist, journalist. In the early 1980s he evaluated and 
publicized satellite data that dealt with political and military hotbeds. 
Since 1989, Günther uses globes as a medium for his artistic and 
journalistic projects.

Scott Lash (USA/GB), sociologist, author of Critique of Information (2002). 
His interests include information society, global media, continental 
philosophy, technology and culture, and the problem of ‘flows’.

Winy Maas (NL), architect, co-founder of MVRDV, an office that produces 
designs and studies in the fields of architecture, urbanism, landscape 
design and design philosophy. With MVRDV he has published many books, among 
which ‘FARMAX: Excursions on density’ (1998) and ‘Metacity/Datatown’ (1999).

Brian Massumi (CDN), philosopher, teaches at the University of Montreal 
(CDN). Massumi is interested in the relationship between technology, 
science and humanoria. His publications include ‘Parables for the Virtual: 
Movement, Affect, Sensation’ (2002). Massumi is translator of the works of 
Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari.

Sadie Plant (GB), philosopher, teaches philosophy at Manchester University.

'Copy the Rights'! is a seminar about copyright. It will address various 
copyright aspects of opening up archives or databases, of archiving various 
expressions of digital culture and of (on-line) presentations of archive 
collections and databases. In a number of lectures and via hands-on 
presentations some examples of 'good practice' will be demonstrated. 
Archives, cultural institutes and copyright initiatives from both the 
Netherlands and abroad will inform the audience about their activities. 
Furthermore, a number of important recent international initiatives will be

Call for Participation
'Media Ecology', master class with Sher Doruff about interdisciplinarity
Date: 3 - 7 March 2003
Location: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

'Media Ecology'
This master class will attempt to build an exploratory bridge between 
current discourse on collaborative dynamic systems and LiveArt's practice.

Since the context is inherently non-hierarchical and sensitive to bottom-up 
interaction it will focus on peer-to-peer exchange between the 'local' 
participants, guest presenters and an extended community of externally 
linked 'translocal' participants. It will address interdisiplinarity and 
interaction between mediums and persons as a processual dynamic with 
real-time, rich media multi-user creation. We will examine the conditions 
and qualia of live, networked, collaborative connections in relation to how 
we, as human agents provoke and negotiate events in distributed, online, 
interactive 'ecologies'.

During the week focus will fluctuate between theoretical angling and 
practical playfullness. Artists working with issues concerning information 
access, emotional computing, collaborative systems and social networks will 
present their work, interspersed with daily, hands-on, empirical assessment 
of online co-creation. The communication and digital processing of live and 
archived media, tools of LiveArt practitioners, inject a new set of 
conditions that reflect an emphasis on the gradient properties emerging 
from the process that evolve and grow the system itself. This is the 
beginning referent for the week's activities.

1. Theoretical correlations that will guide discussion within the context 
of real-time multi-user platforms and datamining methodologies include:
- - emergence in complex systems
- - distributed cognitive environments/pervasive computing technologies
- - transformative iteration as aesthetic production
- - synaesthetic perception
2. Guest presenters  artists and developers researching related issues will 
share their perspectives and research. Including Sharon Daniel, Michelle 
Teran, Sara Diamond, Just van den Broecke and Anne Nigten.
3. Hands-on presentations  participants will interface with translocal 
participants from the Anatomic Group at Waag Society in Amsterdam in 
assessing the potential and pitfalls of virtual engagement in media rich, 
self-organized, dynamic network scenarios. Playtime, in the enabling 
software environment KeyWorx (formerly KeyStroke), will be structured on a 
project basis, with participants focused on a common set of conditions, 
attributes and criteria relevant to the dynamic processing of media in 
networks. These online sessions will be streamed and archived for remix and 
recontextualization as an exploration of iterative content and dynamic 
change as emergent database.
4. Group projects in the workshop will involve preliminary designs for 
collaborative systems sensitive to cognitive/cultural aspects of real-time 
interaction, processual aesthetics and its relation to data classification, 
storage and access.

KeyWorx, developed at Waag Society, will serve as the primary experimental 
platform for this research. KeyWorx is an R&D project which enables 
collaborative distributed environments for multidisciplinary artists to 
create and disseminate new media performances from a shared workspace to a 
global audience. Live and archived media can be instantiated and modified 
by up to five participants in a session. The performance output is 
broadband streamed and/or beamed to local audiences and web viewers. The 
meeting and live interaction of diverse personalities and skillsets on a 
virtual, global stage will serve as a platform for an analysis of 
collective aesthetics.

Waag Society's Anatomic group in Amsterdam will be facilitated by Guy van 
Belle, Michelle Teran and Arjen Keesmaat.

More info about this master class: 

The master class is open to 10 participants:
- - who have some experience or interest in real-time interactive 
technologies such as MAX/MSP/nato/Jitter, Isadora, Image/ine, KeyWorx
- - who have experience or serious interest in collaborative environments in 
arts practice

Hello you all!

First, I want to tell you how we appreciate the critical debate on hip-hop
(for us regarding the first ³Last poets² as a splendid Breakers¹ beginning
in NY, more the London Jamaïcan community ‹ L.K.J. ‹ in the last sixties and
the early seventies). This sound have got a political hard way meeting the
gang opportunity about the market later... since its first cultural
performances in the street and then it was growing as an referential tempo
in all the cities of the world. So, the critical discussion has become
absolutely necessary.

Second I want to tell you about a special American movie as a tribute to
France Œalterity; I hope that you will think like us that the Derrida¹s
actual political active position, specially about the UN on the war question
since September 11, and the meetings that he had performed in Cerisy¹s
symposium (Fr) on the question of the losing Democracy in June 2001, owes
more attention considering who he is as a French and international
intellectual regarding his true life since Algeria where he was born...
Isn¹t a movie the best way for the first contact and the more collective way
for the second contact before the third: meeting him IRL ? :-)

Infrastructures of Digital Design Graduate Conference

January 31 -­ February 2, 20 at UCSD

"³Infrastructures of Digial Design" is a graduate conference that will
take place January 31 to February 2 at the University of California San Diego
Center for Research in Computing & the Arts as part of the UC Digital
Cultures Initiative. This conference will feature paper presentations and
new media works from 30 graduate students inside and outside the University
of California, and will be supported by distinguished faculty members and
invited guest speakers.

"Infrastructures of Digital Design" will commence with a keynote speech
by Howard Becker leading sociologist of art and professor emeritus at the
University of California, Santa Barbara to be followed by two days of
plenary presentations that will address the following issues: Enabling
Design - What strategies and models of cultural production can be developed
from the realization of new infrastructures? Health Information Systems -
What are the ethical and technical questions produced through the
representation and collection of patient data and the formulation of new
medical knowledge? Spatiality and Built Environments -  How does the
collection, mapping and visualization of data affect the understanding built
environments and the relationship between the local and the global? Digital
Environments for Learning/Community/Identity -  What types of models
facilitate and produce new forms of understanding between both oneself and
the group or others? Designing Regulation and Regulating Design -  How are
infrastructures developed and employed by both the private and public
sector, setting standards for new policy and invention?

Graduate projects will be showcased in a New Media Works Festival, held at
the Herbert Marcuse Gallery in the Visual Arts Department, concurrent to the
panel presentations. Between exhibition and presentation, a night of
emergent performance, real-time data-mixing and sonic intervention
will take place the evening of Saturday, February 1st as part of the

All panels and paper presentations will be held at the Center for Research
in Computing and the Arts (CRCA) located in building #408 University Center

Subject: free video program in SMART Cinema, A Close Watch (Undermining the Overview: Part 1)

SMART Project Space | 1st Constantijn Huygensstraat 20, Amsterdam  +31 (0)20 427 5951

 A Close Watch (Undermining the Overview: Part 1)

 Every Sunday and Wednesday at 17.00 SMART Project Space presents free video programs in Smart Cinema.  This video program accompanies the exhibition, Someone To Watch Over Me |  January 12 - February 16, 2003

 Sunday, January 12 and Wednesday, January 15,  17.00 hrs. 

 Saiki Hiromi ? You Can't Always Blame the Sky (2000, Japan, 18 min.)

Submitted for close study is "example #792813" who is obsessed with how she appears to others.  Her own self scrutiny becomes our entry into our own studied overview.

 Mark Rappaport ? From the Journals of Jean Seberg  (1997, USA, 100 min.)

The intimate view of a small town girl turned iconic creature turned multiple surveillance subject.  Beyond the chilling inexorability of the biographical details, Rappaport explores the ideological attitudes that commercial films subliminally offer above and beyond the story, the stars and the price of admission:  the message and value assumptions that linger on long after the plot is forgotten.  A tape about film theory:  semiology in practice.


 Sunday, January 19 and Wednesday, January 22,  17.00 hrs.

 Rashid Mashawari ? Tension (1998, Palestine, 26 min.)

A study in the malaise of living under the panoptic watchful eye of security and control which is in turn exposed to close and detached scrutiny.

 Michael Klier ? Der Riese (1983, Germany, 82 min.)

Klier's  by now immortal compendium of urban surveillance material from traffic control to department store security practice reaches symphonically paranoid heights and finally resolves in an image of cathartic and breathless paradox.

 Kurt Sayenga ? Spies Above (1996, USA, 55 min.)

Taking a little more distance than Der Riese, this work collects the products of industrious spy satellites in space and presents a confidential history of the secret CIA agency which initiated and maintains their use since its inception during the Eisenhower fifties.


 Sunday, January 26 and Wednesday, January 29,  17.00 hrs.

 Jane Campion ? Passionless Moments (1993, Australia, 13 min.)

An incisive panoptic scrutiny of a few particular specimens at a few particular moments that prove particularly pertinent.

 Manthia Diawara ? Rouch In Reverse (1995, Mali/U.K., 51 min.)

A conceptual coup of sorts: an effort at what its maker calls "reverse anthropology"; the first work to look at European anthropology from the perspective of its subjects.  Diawara's provocative tape examines the anthropological enterprise through the work of reknowned ethnographic film-maker Jean Rouch.  

 Gene Searchinger ? Paradox on 72nd Street  (1980, USA, 55 min.)

The intersection of West 72nd street and Broadway in New York City becomes, under close scrutiny, a microcosm of human interaction. This active and attuned surveillance delineates the struggle between individualism  and collectivity. Systems and institutions  which provide order and control are analysed as well as the unconscious  gestures and modes of etiquette which human beings impose on themselves. This work was suggested by ideas in Philip Slater's book The Pursuit of Loneliness and was made with the collaboration of sociologist Slater and biologist Lewis Thomas.


 Sunday, February 2 and Wednesday, February 5,  17.00 hrs.

 Mori Fumitake ? A Tick By the White Tower (2000, Japan, 30 min.)

Having grown up under the panoptical gaze of the impassive central tower of his high school campus, our inveterately self-conscious hero is determined to become a tick that might risk stopping time.

 Alan and Susan Raymond ? American Family Revisited (1990, USA, 58 min.)

Another anthropological/media turnabout in the form of an epilogue which provides a ten years after update on the Loud family: the subjects of the Raymond's pioneering documentary program An American Family of the seventies and the true dawn of  "reality TV".  Here is a case where the subjects have been completely altered by the process of scrutiny and tele-visual surveillance.

 Sachiko Hamada and Scott Sinkler ? Inside Life Outside (1988, USA, 57 min.)

Following a closely knit group of homeless people living in a lower east side shantytown over a two and a half year period. This work proposes an alternate anthropology of the self where all categories are mediated and found contradictory. Unlike the typical television family, these people thrive on the self awareness that the watchful eyes inspire.


 Sunday, February 9 and Wednesday, February 12,  17.00 hrs.

 Jane Campion ? A Girl's Own Story (1991, Australia, 27 min.)

The dawning of rigorous self-scrutiny and its reflexive desire: a clarion call for "someone to watch over me".

 Danielle Smith ? Song of Umm Dalaila  (1993, Algeria, 35 min.)

Smith shot this work in a Sahrawi refugee camp in Algeria concentrating on the women which made up 80% of the adult population of the camp. What interests us here is how these women come to assume primary responsibility for the survival of the refugees and offer a different paradigm of the watchful eye of scrutiny.

 Nina Rosenblum? Through the Wire (1990, USA, 77 min.)

The brutal flipside of the implications of Umm Dalaila:  Locked in a basement, deprived of sleep, psychologically tormented, strip searched daily by male guards, video taped in the bathroom-three women are political prisoners in the USA-where they say this can't happen.  In a high security dungeon in Lexington, Kentucky is the United States government conducting secret experiments in brainwashing and behavioural modification on these women? Is this what we can expect from the brave new world of panoptic security?


 Sunday, February 16 and Wednesday, February 19,  17.00 hrs.

 Sven Augustijnen ? Something on Bach (1998, Belgium, 37 min.)

The rear window surveillance approach is taken to a rehearsal of Alain Platel's Les Ballets C. de la B. seen through the windows of the rehearsal space from a vantage point across the street which produces a multivalent reading of a complex set of events.

 Ross McElwee ? The Six O'Clock News  (1997, USA, 102 min.)

We now seize that ultimate daily moment of scrutiny and world surveillance:  the six o'clock news and what's more we choose to engage it directly and call its bluff.  McElwee decides to enter into the events of the news when they come close to home after a hurricane has leveled the town where he has previously filmed and where his friend Charleen Swansea, a frequent McElwee subject, lives.  Thus a new journey for the ever watchful eye begins.  This work also constitutes a sequel of sorts to Time Indefinite included in last month's program "Like Real".

culture. Read_me 2.3 draws connections between histories and practices in both software culture
and art, and aims at creating an extended context, against which software art may be mapped. 

Read_me 2.3 is the second edition of Read_me, the first festival dedicated entirely to the
phenomena of software art (Read_me 1.2 at: http://www.macros-center.ru/read_me ).

Read_me 2.3 continues with the open structure of Read_me: all projects are submitted on-line
to a publicly accessible database. However, the second Read_me edition has logically developed
this idea further: the simple database / submission form has turned into the software art
repository Runme.org (http://runme.org).

All projects, submitted to Runme.org up to the Read_me 2.3 deadline (1 of March) will be reviewed
by a collective of  "experts" (http://m-cult.org/read_me/experts) and the best ones will be
presented on the Read_me 2.3 event.

Read_me 2.3 is not a competition in the traditional sense, and it will not have monetary prizes.
The festival event on May 30-31 will present, discuss, and celebrate a selection of works singled
out and featured without ranking by the Read_me experts collective. Read_me 2.3 will
focus on the variety of discrete contexts and will aim at building bridges between them.

To submit a project for Read_me 2.3 go to
http://m-cult.org/read_me/submit.php and follow instructions.

The project is a co-operation between NIFCA, The Nordic Institute for
Contemporary Art (http://www.nifca.org), Lume (http://www.lume.fi),
and m-cult (http://www.m-cult.org).

outside of normal computer operating system and aim to test the CPU to full graphic and 
sound creative potential, a practice originated and followed, including at special 'demo

computers, still thriving in many countries.

Geography and the Politics of Mobility

The exhibition presents five collective and recently produced art projects
to examine the concept of "geography" in a way that goes beyond its
geo-scientific definition. The increasing circulation of people, goods, and
data is creating new cultural, social, and virtual landscapes that inscribe
themselves materially in the terrain. Here, geography is seen as a model of
thought for concepts of boundaries, connectivity and transgression within
society. The exhibition takes a critical look at an increasingly
consolidated Europe as well as its borders and at the same time presents
emerging formations of artistic and activist "geographies".

 Makrolab is a temporary, autonomous art-science laboratory initiated by the
Slovenian artist Marko Peljhan. It provides changing participants with means
to listen into data from around the world under isolated conditions. So far
this nomadic research and residential unit has been stationed at Documenta X
in Kassel, in Slovenia, on Rottnest Island in Australia, and in the Scottish

 The project group Frontera Sur RRVT examines the Spanish-Moroccan border as
an area for mobility motivated by various causes. A complex system of forces
has emerged there that raises questions of gender, ethnic filters and
debates about migration and labor.

 The multi-video work A/S/L (Age/Sex/Location) by Raqs Media Collective from
Delhi maps the "time geography" of shifting identities in the New Economy.
It addresses the gendered conditions of the new data outsourcing agent: the
online working woman, who is the quintessential "digital proletarian" of the
21st century.

 The artist duo Bureau d'études from Paris conceives gigantic maps that
disclose an increasingly interconnected network of data-gathering systems
involving the military, energy and biochemical sectors as well as the
entertainment, information and social surveillance systems. Their
pictographic installation World Monitoring Atlas transfers the "politics of
space" to an abstract level.

 The Milan based collective multiplicity proposes Case 01 and 02 of their
ongoing Solid Sea project on the nature of the Mediterranean and the fluxes
that cross it. While Europe reformulates its borders, multiplicity presents
the Mediterranean as a solid space that is traversed by vessels and
individuals holding different statuses.

 A publication in German and English will accompany the exhibition. It will
contain a foreword by Dieter Karner, an editorial by Sabine Breitwieser, and
texts by Ursula Biemann, Brian Holmes, Lisa Parks, Irit Rogoff, and the
