mirror++ connects human movement to the organic
beauty of graphic algorithms. The audience

ADELAIDE FESTIVAL OF IDEAS 2003 - HOPE & FEAR

We live in dangerous times. War and terror are no longer things which 
only affect 'other people' and distant locations. Increasingly, media 
messages encourage insecurity and fear, and many feel that we risk 
losing our compassion for others. Are we at the edge of an abyss, 
contemplating a protracted global conflagration?  Are there forces at 
play, cynically exploiting our inner fears and prejudices?  What kind 
of a world will we leave our children? Is there a viable alternative to 
economic liberalism and global markets?

Truths conflict with each other in the unsettled reality we share, and 
yet there is also much that offers hope.

For three days and four nights this July, Adelaide will come alive with 
challenging speakers and buzz with the adrenalin of intellectual debate 
and speculation. Join us for a journey beyond the ten second sound 
grabs. Turn your mind toward the future. Celebrate the power of ideas 
and the joy of thinking aloud together!

Greg Mackie OAM
Founder and Chair
Adelaide Festival of Ideas Advisory Committee

The over-arching themes for 2003 are HOPE and FEAR.

FW: CHRISTO ANNOUNCES NEW PROJECT

(Reuters)

World famous artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude have today announced a new
project that is slated to be begin immediately.  Responding to U.S.
Homeland Defense Secretary Ridge's call for artists to rally the cause
through anti-terrorist art, Christo has received permission to wrap the
White House in Washington D.C., using duct tape and plastic sheeting. Much
like the artist's 1995 project "Wrapped Reichstag" in Berlin, "Wrapped
White House" will, according to the artists' plan, seal the building and
those inside.

Of the project the artists said, "We are very excited to use our art making
methods in the international fight against terrorists. By wrapping the
White House we hope to help keep terrorism under wraps, so to speak."
Unlike "Wrapped Reichstag" which was a temporary project, "Wrapped White
House" will be the artists' first permanent work of public art.

100,000 square meters (1,076,000 square feet) of clear high-strength
polypropylene plastic, and 15,600 meters (51,181 feet) of silver duct tape,
13.2 cm (4 inch) wide, will be used for the wrapping of the White House.
The work will be completed in as little as one week.  The artist's have
contacted other artists across the U.S. who are now in-route to Washington
D.C. in order to finish this work in record time.  Materials have been
provided without charge by the German Government.  Recalling the "Wrapped
Reichstag," German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder stated, "Wrapping the
symbol of German Democracy was a defining moment for the new Germany.
Wrapping the White House will likewise be a defining moment as democracy is
restored in America."

Subject: Computational Films  Screening

Tuesday, March 4 at the Thomas Erben Gallery I will be showing excerpts of
new computational films.  Announcement below. I would very pleased for you
to see this work. ML

Computational films
Marc Lafia

In these works I am interested in the image in the registers of photography,
cinema and computation. Each of these media proffers unique properties of
time. Moving the qualities of one into the register of another complicates
and intensifies its experience; what becomes of the still image in movement
and the moving image made still?

The first work ŒBetween¹ is made by traversing 5 still photographs arranged
as a tableau, a continuity across surface, a movement over stillness. In
ŒVariable Montage¹, I am interested in cinematographic montage in the
context of structural parameters provided by computation, inextricably
linking projection and recording. In the register of computation, time and
sequence take on an entirely new sense. In the works ŒMasks¹, ŒWindow¹,
ŒBridge¹ and ŒSea¹, also made from still images, computation ushers forth a
new rhythm, a new duration, a new sensation for the moving image which can
be characterized by the simultaneity of a multiplicity of event times. What
interests me here is how computation re-doubles ideas of movement, chance,
stillness, serendipity, collision, and hybridity. In computation each film
is the unique utterance or enunciation in the event of a language, which
each time is spoken anew.

 Louky Keijsers is pleased to present:

THE DIALOGUE 
Film/video screenings and discussion

Featuring: 

MARC LAFIA 
CHRISTOPHER MINER 
ANGEL NEVAREZ 
SHANNON PLUMB 


Tuesday March 4, from 8 - 10 pm at Thomas Erben Gallery

Because of last year's great success and upon request of many, there
will be one more time THE DIALOGUE (II), a monthly film/ video
screenings, which will begin in March and end in June. The starting
point of these screenings is the dialogue. Talking with a lot of
artists, I realized that most of them (including myself) often miss
the discussion in the (NY) art world. The purpose of these screenings
is to enhance the communication between artists and audience.

The discussion of the first screening of these series focuses on the
distinct perceptions of 'the moving image'. In their work the artists
concentrate on different aspects of the cinematic language to
translate their ideas. Whether they examined their concepts
sociologically, psychologically or politically, it reveals the social
structures, powers structures and contextual realities in our society.

Thanks to the generous support of The Original Card Co and White Columns.

Little Sister 2003
Community Resistance, Security, Law and Technology 

Vancouver, British Columbia (Coast Salish Territory)
Martime Labour Centre
May 9-11, 2003 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Goal is Freedom:

We believe our greatest strength in defeating the security and legal 
maneuvers used against us as community organizers is by unifying and 
building common cause in our movements. This means building diverse 
coalitions who are willing to support each other in order to create safe 
spaces for oppposition to the policies and practices of governments and 
corporations. Ultimately, as organizers, our goal is to resist the 
injustices that our communities face, while retaining our physical and 
emotional freedom. 

Little Sister 2003 is the first conference of its kind being held in 
North America. The conference focus is specifically on community 
resistance and the security and legal needs of autonomous movements. 
Some of the topics we aim to cover through workshops and panel 
discussions include: 

* Training the Trainers 
* Computer Security for Non-Geeks 
* Understanding Law Enforcement "Intelligence" 
* Surveillance Measures & Countermeasures 
* Security for Organizations 
* Informers and Infiltrators 
* Security Culture 
* "At-risk" Communities - Special Organizing Considerations 
* Infiltration by Right-Wing Agendas 
* Communicating Securely 
* Trends in Law 
* The Legal System & You 
* Does the Law Ever Work For Us? 
* Political Climates and Repression 
* Action-Planning & Security 
* Security Technology 
* Secure Systems Administration 
* PGP - What is it? How do we use it? 
* When the Cops Come Knocking 

Workshop Proposals Needed: 

WE NEED PEOPLE to facilitate and lead these, and other workshops. If you 
are interested in presenting on any of these topics (or others), or 
speaking on a panel please submit a workshop/skillshare proposal no 
later than March 20th so we can start to formulate and publicize the 
conference agenda. There is a form for workshop submissions online at 
https://littlesister2003.org/workshop.php. 

Logistics: 

Local organizers are working to make this conference as open as 
possible. We are able to provide billeting for out of town guests, child 
care and a fully wheelchair accessible space for the conference itself 
(if you have special housing needs, we will do our best to accomodate 
those as well). 

Although there are no travel subsidies available, we do have bursaries 
for participating in the conference at a 100% subsidization rate for 
those unable to pay. 

Registration: 

Registration is now open for the conference. Online, the registration 
form can be found at https://littlesister2003.org/reg_form.php. If you 
wish to register via email or phone, please contact the Little Sister 
2003 Organizing Collective using the contact info provided below.

The Bottom Line..... 

As organizers everywhere know, changes in political climate and to 
statutes and legislation over the past several years have allowed for a 
lot more harassment, infiltration, and criminalization of community 
organizations and their members. A tremendous strength can be found in 
bringing together these experiences to examine how we might make 
security skills and techniques a part of our organizing tool-box.

Two days after, still in Paris, the united movement of organizations for
Palestine solidarity "TROP C¹EST TROP" from The League of the human rights
was calling for a meeting on the Israel-Palestine news.

3/ 
Here is an attempt to make a comment-synthesis, on the two debates, at least
for what is recurrent giving a real interpretation, in particular Leila
Shahid¹s intervention  {AT}  "TROP C¹EST TROP" representing Palestinian
institutional authority in France, with the respective Baudrillard's and
Derrida's debate within the framework of the event organized by the IHEP.

Consensus Baudrillard/Derrida on the following points:

< the event devotes in fact of the disappearance of criticism. One must set
out again of the event, not of the conceptual devices which are already
given.Today all the political and rights concepts must pragmatically be
redefined at the horizon of the rupture of the events (or of the logical
sequence would be it still observable within materialist or phenomenologic
framework). 

< What gets back to the fact that the security is the main ³false² concept
all around of which justifies itself ideologically a crypto war: nobody.
Security argumentation about Iraq likes with regard to weapons
questioned, in front of the situation of Pakistan, on the contrary
officially endowed with the nuclear weapon and having already let it know
it. Throwing experimental bombs, and now, Al Qaïda's acquired territory,
notably since the dismantling of the hegemony Taliban in Afghanistan...

< Nevertheless, the security is the main object of communication of it.
Announced war, including the antiterrorist local measures, which
reduces under the fear the autonomy and the power of the people everywhere.
So, the security at the local or world level plays exactly the same role
(e.g. Israel). The security would be a shape of the terrorism of State. It
is of the same order that of oppressed minorities or so many mercenary
groups. The terrorism in a general way became the alternate concept after
the disappearance of Politics and it is applicable for all the elements in
cause in this dynamism.
 
< The terrorism of States as security is a concept on "auto-immunizing":
against the disorders or the unforeseen mayhem and all the more terrible as
they are born on a traumatism: one Cowpox. It thus understands (includes)
the part of the evil and the viral distribution as well on national
questions of Social and rules (inside) as foreigner questions and resources
(outside).

< So would undertake bit by bit and all around the world the disappearance
of democracies and the autonomy of the citizenships, but the terrorism more
as ideology than as material event would be the main clause revelation, not
the cause, which must be rather looked as for the end of The Cold War and of
its consequences on the replacement of the fight of classes, within the
framework of the generalization of the liberal system notably exchange,
which followed.

< The announced war is not a war but the generalization of terrorism, as way
of imposing against the liberties citizens world territorial and
institutional redistributions, and distribution of the resources. Including
in their own national villages the military engaged people on front of the
NATO in Middle East. There will be deaths and probably generalization of
fronts from here to there but neither challenge, nor opponent declared as
enemy of battle.

< It is not thus a war, it is the flood of the imperial world project by all
the means and on all the fronts, internal, outside, micro and macro
economic, military, geographic... Such is "The Terrorist mode of State"
formerly reserved for the dictatorships or ancient colonized resistance
fighters, today generalized to all the peoples.

< It is not a political regulation as was able to realize it by the others
means the symbolism of the modern war.

Nb: we remind that the viruses are not alive bodies but active substances
what is evoked by Jean Baudrillard.

< Such is the point of view under which we can interpret the 'Terrorism mode
of State' as resource integrated paradoxically the law the order the new
rule of the available project of the Power... are evoked the terrible
repressions which took place recently in Sudan, in the biggest silence of
the world protest, the old dictatorships manipulated) in South America. The
silence on the massacres in Rwanda, etc.... just like the treatment imposed
to the Kurds so far by Iraq and the Turks, without the slightest overhang of
protest of free states. Nb: we could also evoke the women and Children in
Taliban¹s Afghanistan).

< At the conference organized by the IHSP, we show
on the other hand in what "the terrorism mode of State" can reveal as well
his its own deaths armed or repression inside as outside. Here the announced
deaths of G.I: one speaks about no more appropriate war, we already know the
damages immediate as the eventuality of future pools of mud.

Nb:
< On the security as resource of "The terrorism mode of State" at the
meeting "TROP C¹EST TROP": Leila Shahid evokes for example the majority of
the citizens of Israel, roughly against the politics of repression of the
Palestinians and saying it, but admitting that they cannot escape to vote
for Sharon.

We speak about the system of auto-fault practised inside the Israeli
ideology itself, as among the Zionist diaspora abroad, considering the
antecedents of Shoa: with those who Escaped, and from those who were moved
of the zones
concerned, most of the Sephardis, for example: now thus, the auto-fault of
the generations which succeed it reproduces in Israel's inside as among the
Diaspora. For the disaspora, fault doubles not to be beside the Israeli
insecurity... : another appearance of the "auto-immunizing".

Would be the same about the terrorism rumors inside US territory, but same
time could be an usually way to govern insecure citizens. For example in
Europe and so in France.

We speak finally always about Leila Shahid of the situation completely
lunatic in which the Jews of Israel are now fenced in their own insecurity,
towards the Jewish diaspora threatened less than never somewhere else,
considering the radical otherness that Israel's state a strategy of
established surrounding by basing on the repression territorial deterrence
towards the Palestinians.

That is why it is necessary to call up to the biggest rigour of the
argumentation, says Mr Hirch, of the mouvemenent of solidarity
Israel-Palestine. What Leila Shahid strengthens. She explains that any
Israelians and Palestinians would hope to live as neighbours.  Palestinians
would not agree to leave Gaza and Cisjordania for the Palestinian State in
Jordania (the american-israelian project for Palestinians).

A Palestinian in the room claims then the disappearance of Israel: Madeleine
Rebérioux, President of Honor of the League of the Human Rights, she
answers: "we have just heard here the limit of the fact that one could in
terms of Right: you made itbut in any case we set against your point of
view, we leave the established fact to the thread years for those who did
not recognize it previously, and of the Right recognized internationally for
Israel: we are there to ask for two States, exactly because we don¹t
disapprove the legitimacy to exist for Israel. Your comment raises from
another history than that engaged at present here: we do not chase you away
from the assembly, but us not Shall give you not the word to develop your
point of view. (Above The man gets up and goes away; the unanimous crowd
stands: "good evening, sir ").

Leila Shahid in his turn of word honours the heroism of Refuseniks, she says
they structure the possible hope of coexistence of Israel and Palestine in
two nearby States. Draft resistance grows in Israel Refuseniks environment
even there would not be a lot of people. It is reminded towards their weak
number that minorities radicals were active in the History for example of
Europe.

http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0134/solomo n.php/
(For the links in New York where the community of the Diaspora is strong).

I return to the plurisemantic (plurivalent) question of the terrorism there:

< On this two-tier mode realities (bivalent or plurivalent according to the
occurrences and events), forms itself or restructures the communication
everywhere and in everything; as for the disinformation, she(it) would get
organized on one simulation of arguments respectively monovalent
(commitments and opinions): point of view naturally inadequate to the active
and pragmatic reality of the appearance and the perception of the events.

< The terrorism mode of State relegates its events to a disinformation
age-old of the responsibilities in cause; for example at present, so much of
American power that of the world power which they inspire and it
Particularly since September 11th: "Which (who) will never know how and by
Who it really arrived?" Says Derrida.

It is announced by Derrida that Israeli soldiers under uniform american
would already be inside Iraq, in the North. On this matter Derrida says that
the game on the Israel-Palestine instability in strategic terms possibly
would confer in all the plans and the scenarios of the American project for
the Middle East. A new balance of power.

< Jean Baudrillard notices that the democracy is in loss of speed (Including
through the headway of the bureaucracies, behind the jurists experts
accompanying the power in all their villages or institutional relocations),
concerning the rights of the citizens in the whole world, usurped or
scoffed. In what he opposes to Derrida on them conclusions to pull
consensual analyses during their conference it class:

< Derrida thinks that in the territorial redistribution and the powers which
announces, the only answer is the reorganization of the institutional right
internationally, human rights, and question of the redefining sovereign
powers so territorial as citizens, notably at the level of the organization
of United Nations, and at the European level. Finally, he thinks that NATO
under US army being the only force actually able of carrying manu militari
decisions of the UN, it becomes urgent to establish an autonomy front of
it... That is why, in Europe, he thinks urgent to structure an assuring
Force in front of the influence and of the power servicemen of America.
 
The oppositions :

< For Baudrillard, unlike Derrida, the reform and the revolutions Of the
Right, as Institutions, are not at all sufficient conditions as for the
liberation of the announced oppression of the peoples, and already indeed
working including in the privileged ex-west.

< As for the former colonized emerging countries, Baudrillard leaves of the
Dialectic of the master and the slave from Hegel and the courcircuite with
the idea of the gift and counter-gift in anthropology (Mauss, Bataille are
references that he pursues to use, as well as Marx on the other hand): here
Gift becomes Challenge. The gift of the territory by the West in the former
colonized the matter is to be considered under this angle.

The question is then to know if the challenge can or not be taken up by that
towards which it is launched: on that its possible or impossible autonomy
depends. If it cannot because the gift is too high, it continues to be
constituted as a slave or to be it (note: this would recut that, namely that
Leila Shahid noticed, with the meeting of The league of the Human Rights, as
it was incredible that the United States and the English are ready to act
the dismantling of their larger allies of always in Middle East: Jordania,
Saudi Arabia, Egypt; (note: on another side, one pourait in the same way to
include/understand the unanimous rallying of the African States behind the
European position joint at the request of Jacques Chirac; nevertheless, this
case could also result from a strategic choice of the African States which
would have thus decided near the Islamic side against the war, and in any
event with the weapons dealwas not dealt).

< Contrary to Derrida, Baudrillard thinks that dimension symbolic system of
September 11 very changed, was this about handling. It remains that
dimension symbolic system of terrorism as arms with the minorities arises,
like dimension symbolic system of the passage to the act of the terrorism
mode of State, through what on 11 September mediatized and media in revealed
paradoxically everywhere in the world.

(note: on the question of the army of the States, for example if Europe
obtained a Européenne army, which would be perhaps a good on the
internationl plan, one could not neglect to know in addition on the local
level, if one relies on the paradoxical problems from Baudrillard, that such
an army at the proper time can also be used as force of repression of the
resistant citizenships, inside even from the European unit. The such
American army itself in the United States, one year before the first war of
alliance in Yugoslavia, was called in operations with Oakland, at the same
time residential and popular suburbs of San Francisco, to simulate the
control of a popular insurrection which would not have been an insurrection
of the Community type but Citizen, to see work of the Semioticians of the
war and terrorism: Federico Montanari (university of Bologna) and Juan
Alonso (university of Paris 8) in particular their article Co-signed in
Observatoire de la Television n° 14, Paris, 1998-99, and their respective
service at the time of the symposium Precariousness-Instability in December
2002 in Paris (the acts paper published in 2003):

http://www.criticalsecret.com/seminaire/seminaire_index_en.html/
http://www.criticalsecret.com/n10

< Baudrillard continues to think that regarding the terrorism of the States
applicable to their own people as to old colonized, for as much, terrorism
or kamikaze that it is armed or ideological, or both whole like event, does
not appear not indicated to disappear in the resources from the people
forgotten, ridiculed, or humiliated that it is here or elsewhere. It would
be thus a weapon unverifiable and become diffuses, pertaining to all the
parts in question at the horizon of disappearance of the class struggle,
which did not abolish the shifts and the social injustices, and which, after
having developed the democracies in the horizon of the end of the Cold War,
prepared the revelation of a world order after the generalization of
liberalism and the financial system, worst for freedoms.

< Terrorism, whose most powerful States or humiliated most minority are the
instrument of capacities, the people while being victims generally, if not
in a paradoxical reversal such effects (would not have one an illusion on
the winners and overcome: States, factions, or people), because
nevertheless we know, we observed logical or random reversals events: no
one could not thus suppose of the winner a priori. For him, renewal of the
international law and local as the force of the armies being subordinate,
would be it inevitable to him and desirable, remaining today an assumption
to adapt to the maintenance of freedoms in the terrorist toughening of the
world, also raises of the auto-immunizing applications... and should us be
in request for these legitimate and applicable applications in a pragmatic
way, remains that they could not be answers to the height of the processes
of being able in question, nor average credits and powerful to defend the
freedom and the justice put in danger at the horizon of terrorism like the
new order of the World system missing Politics... Regarding such surges ‹
except accident;-)

Subject: =?iso-8859-1?Q?Erstes_=D6sterreichisches_Sozialforum_-_Hallein_-_28.-31._?= =?iso-8859-1?Q?Mai_2003?=

Liebe Leute,

dies ist eine Sonderaussendung des Visionale-Newsletters und das hat einen
wahrlich besonderen Grund.

Vom 28.-31. Mai 2003 findet nämlich in Hallein das erste Österreichische
Sozialforum statt und wir halten das für ein derart wichtiges Ereignis, dass wir
alle unsere Kräfte vorerst dorthin konzentrieren wollen und uns deswegen erst
danach um die nächste Visionale bemühen können. In gewisser Weise ist das
Sozialforum auch eine Weiterentwicklung der Visionale und es sind dort auch
zukunftsträchtige Impulse zu erwarten, weswegen uns diese Vorgangsweise als
überaus gerechtfertigt erscheint.

Weit über 100 Menschen aus ganz Österreich arbeiten bereits in mehreren
Arbeitsgruppen an der Umsetzung des Sozialforums. Es gibt aber immer noch Arbeit
in Fülle und wer sich organisatorisch bzw. inhaltlich einbringen möchte, möge
bitte auf einer der Mailinglisten, die auf
http://www.socialforum.at/sf/mailinglisten angeführt sind, subskribieren.

Grundsätzlich ist das Sozialforum KEINE Dachorganisation sondern "nur" eine
Veranstaltung, wo alle, die daran glauben, dass eine andere Welt möglich ist,
zusammenkommen, sich austauschen und vernetzen können, wo gemeinsam Alternativen
zu neoliberalem Wirtschaften, kriegerischem Konfliktauslöschen und
menschenunwürdiger Diskriminierung und Ausgrenzung erarbeitet werden und ihre
Umsetzung begonnen bzw. verstärkt vorangetrieben werden kann.

Schon im Vorfeld gibt es in mehreren Städten eine ganze Reihe
Andockmöglichkeiten, vgl. http://www.socialforum.at/sf/termine - ganz besonders
sei aber auf das nächste österreichweite Vorbereitungstreffen am 29. März in
Graz hingewiesen.

Am Sozialforum selbst wird es, ähnlich wie beim Weltsozialforum in Porto Alegre
oder beim ersten Europäischen Sozialforum letzten November in Florenz,
verschiedenste Veranstaltungsformate geben, um die Partizipationsschwellen so
niedrig als möglich zu halten.

In den Vorbereitungsgruppen werden Konferenzen zu den thematischen Hauptachsen
(in Kürze auf www.socialforum.at im Detail nachzulesen) organisiert und als eine
Neuerung sog. Infotheken, wo mensch sich mit nützlichen Fakten versorgen kann.
Wer sich dort mitgestaltend einbringen möchte, sei wiederum auf die diversen
Mailinglisten verwiesen.

Dann die Formate, wo die Vorbereitungsgruppen nur die räumliche und zeitliche
Koordination übernehmen. Über programmkoordination {AT} socialforum.at können
Seminare, Workshops, Infostände, Performances, Ausstellungen usw. angekündigt
werden. Alle Menschen, Initiativen, Organisationen und Netzwerke sind
eingeladen, ihre Anliegen, ihr Wissen und ihre Erfahrungen auch über diese
Formate einzubringen und eine MaintainerInnenschaft zu übernehmen. Alle
Programmpunkte werden so aktuell wie möglich auf www.socialforum.at
veröffentlicht und auch in gedruckter Form erscheinen, wenn sie bis spätestens
Ende April einlangen (je früher, je besser, vielleicht finden sich dann auch
KooperationspartnerInnen).

Die Ankündigungen sollten folgende Informationen enthalten:

Titel:
Format:
MaintainerIn(nen):
Organisation(en):
Telefon:
ggf. Vortragende:
Kurzbeschreibung:
Raumbedarf:
Zeitbedarf:
ggf. URL zu weiteren Infos:


Zu beachten ist in jedem Fall, das besonderer Wert auf Gender Mainstreaming und
gelebten Antirassismus gelegt wird und diese Themen in allen Veranstaltungen
Berücksichtigung finden müssen.

Schließlich seien noch ein paar Highlights aus dem geplanten Programm angeführt.
Es wird beispielsweise parallel im Halleiner Stadtkino ein Festival des
politischen Films stattfinden und voraussichtlich am Freitag, den 30.5. eine
Solidaritätsaktion auf der Tauernautobahn. Seinen rauschenden Abschluss findet
das 1. Österreichische Sozialforum selbstverständlich in einem großen Fest.

Am Tag danach, also Sonntag, dem 1. Juni wird in einem großen Plenum der
Sozialen Bewegungen Resümee gezogen und über weitere Aktionen beraten.

Alsdern. Es geht um viel. Es geht um eine gemeinsam gestaltete andere Welt.

Liebe Grüße

Christian Apl
Teil der ASF-Programmkoordination


PS: Da niemand zwangsbeglückt werden soll, nehme ich es niemandem übel, wenn sie
oder von dieser Stelle keine Nachrichten mehr bekommen will. Bitte in diesem
Fall um eine kurze Mitteilung, danke.

"My Daily Constitution" in NYC
FEBRUARY 22 - 28 '03

Seven days
Seven locations around NYC
Seven discussions about the US Constitution

* free and open to the public *

Information Line:  212-946-1849

>From 22 - 28 February, Linda Pollack will hold "My Daily Constitution", a
series of discussions about the US Constitution led by lawyers, academics,
activists and others.  Discussions take place at various locations (a bar, a
lounge, a theatre, a museum, an art studio, a bookstore) around NYC.  Free
copies of the U.S. Constitution, printed by Pollack in an edition of 5,000,
will be available at discussion locations and at:

Printed Matter, Inc., 535 West 22nd Street, NYC, NY.  212-925-0325

"The project is an attempt to create a space for dialogue, inquiry and
reflection about this document in these times," says Pollack, an LA based
artist.  "It stems from my own realization that I had in fact never read the
Constitution, didn't know what it was, and wouldn't know what was at risk of
being lost.  I do know that democracy (and its close approximations) is a
fragile thing."

Pollack experienced just how fragile democracy could be while working for an
Amsterdam based cultural foundation during the war in the former Yugoslavia,
where she initiated programs that promoted reconciliation and dialogue,
including a benefit Balkan rock concert and a mobility scheme for East
European artists.

In her own art practice Pollack has documented the formal qualities of
plenary halls in a united Germany ("German Parliaments"), and she just
completed a collaborative public art commission (w/Claudia Reisenberger +
Christina Ulke)that turned the space of a seven story Pasadena parking
structure on its head ("Madison Mansion").

"My Daily Constitution" was first held in Hollywood at Les Deux Cafés as
part of the art show "Democracy When?" at Los Angeles Contemporary
Exhibitions in May of last year.

212-246-2676
* * *For years PFAW has been engaged in initiatives that bring
constitutional issues to a broader audience outside of the legal sector,
often interfacing with the art world. Barbara (Bobbie) Handman will discuss
her free wheeling approach to activism, and the evening will focus on how
individuals can engage in civic dialogue today's political climate.


24 Monday
7 - 9 PM
"Silencing Political Dissent" (in conjunction with Nomads + Residents)
Discussion led by Nancy Chang, Senior Litigation Attorney, Center for
Constitutional Rights; Author of "Silencing Political Dissent: How
Post-September 11 Anti-Terrorism Measures Threaten Our Civil Liberties"
(Seven Stories Press, 2002).
at: 16 BEAVER GROUP, 16 Beaver St. fifth floor (btw. Broad St. & Whitehall),
NYC, NY.  212-480-2093
* * * "This analysis by Nancy Chang of the Center for Constitutional Rights
should be read by everyone concerned with a free society. It reports a
chilling set of rules, now the law, which directly affect millions of
Americans who are not citizens, but also the rest of the population, who
must live in an atmosphere of fear. Furthurmore, this draconian law, worthy
of a police state, is extremely unlikely to be overthrown by the courts,
given the historic subservience of the courts to executive authority in time
of war." - Howard Zinn, in his forward for "Silencing Politacal Dissent".


25 Tuesday
7 - 9 PM
"Privacy, Free Speech, and the Patriot Act"
Discussion led by Christopher M. Finan, President, American Booksellers
Foundation for Free Expression, and Jameel Jaffer, Staff Attorney, American

(1/2 Block south of Houston), NYC, NY.  212-334-3324
* * *Chris Finan and Jameel Jaffer will talk about the
growing battle fought by booksellers and librarians to protect the privacy
of their records in order to guarantee customers complete freedom in their
choice of books, a freedom very much threatened by the USA Patriot Act.


26 Wednesday
7 - 9 PM
"Who are 'We the People' Anyway?; Personhood, Citizenship and The U.S.
Constitution"  Discussion led by Chaumtoli Huq, Staff Attorney, New York
Taxi Workers' Alliance.
at: REMOTE LOUNGE, 327 Bowery (btw. 2nd & 3rd St.) NYC, NY.
212-228-0228
* * *The US Constitution confers rights on persons. Slavery and racism was
justified by denying people of African ancestry personhood.  Xenophobic
lawsare passed that create two tiers of persons: citizens and non-citizens.
Chaumtoli Huq and colleagues will look at how the US Constitution was
interpreted to deny individuals rights based on race and immigration status.

at: PETE'S CANDY STORE, 709 Lorimer St. (btw. Richardson & Frost St.),
Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, 718-302-3770
* * *Svetlana Mintcheva will talk about how self-censorship - be it on the
part of an institution, which is afraid of alienating its funders,the media,
anxious that their access to information would be cut, or an individual
worried that if a work is too provocative it would never see the light of
day - is far more efficient and harder to oppose than direct governmental
action. In the words of Hans Magnus Enzensberger, "self-censorship outruns
in elegance and shrewdness everything the most vicious [censor] could
imagine. Its target (often met) is the prohibition to think. Whoever
believes they are immune, is the first victim."

From: Robert Atkins <robert {AT} robertatkins.net>
Subject: Robert Atkins on AntiWar and AIDS Activism, Embodiment and Electronic Communication

Eye/I Witness:  AIDS and Digital Art Activism
Robert Atkins, Writer, NYC

The Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium
Mon, 3 Mar, 7:30-9:30pm: UC Berkeley,
Location: 160 Kroeber Hall
All ATC Lectures are free and open to the public.

As the global, anti-war demonstrations of mid-February remind us,
progressive political impulses are sometimes most effectively
expressed by taking to the streets. This, of course, taps into a
central, electronic-era issue; that is, the efficacy and desirability
of embodied versus remote action. When it comes to political activism,
where do artists fit in? New forms of electronic activism from
pioneering groups including RTMark and Electronic Disturbance Theatres
have proved both inspiring and problematic--and rarely contextualized
within the overlapping realms of mass media, art and activism.

This lecture will analalyze the remarkably effective role artists
played in ameliorating the AIDS crisis in the US, while advancing
innovative forms of art and strategies for distribution that included
culture jamming, agitprop and institutional infiltration. The author
asserts that a rare confluence of historical factors resulted in the
production of the most influential body of public and "private" art in
American history. What lessons might be learned from artists'
practices of just 10-15 years ago that might be applied today? Or has
the Internet so profoundly altered the nature of mass media that they
are already irrelevant? The author intends to raise crucial cultural
and artistic questions that have been ignored in the rift between
discourses separating electronic and non-electronic art, and in the
cultural responses to 9/11 at a moment when dissent has been demonized
and civil liberties threatened.

The Danube Exodus: the Rippling Currents of the River, 2002
Interactive video installation in the context of the exhibition FUTURE CINEMA
courtesy Peter Forgács, The Labyrinth Project,
Annenberg Center for Communications, The
University of Southern California 

(March 1, 2003 – March 23, 2003)

Opening: Sat. March 1, 2003, ZKM_Media Theater, 7 p.m. 

The interactive installation deals with the displacement of ethnic
minorities and the possible connections between them. Based on historic
film material and recent documentary footage, it provides a space in
which to experience history as a stream of moments and memories that can
always be understood in new ways. Visitors are presented with three
interwoven historical narratives centering on the Danube River: One
story tells of Eastern European Jews fleeing Nazi persecution in 1939,
hoping to get to Palestine. The second story, set in 1940 following the
Soviet reannexation of Bessarabia, tells of émigré German farmers
returning to the »safety« of the Third Reich. The third story is that of
Captain Nándor Andrásovits, an adventurer and amateur filmmaker, who
transported both groups along the  river and documented these historic
journeys. The stories shown on large adjacent screens are accompanied by
immersive sounds of the journey  along the river and the music of
Hungarian composer Tibor Szemzö. With the use of a touch-screen monitor,
visitors can select one of 18 orchestrations, and perform their version
of the narrative score.

Subject: share in the kitchen


This month brings an exciting new phase for "Share": our
first "Share Mobile" event, where we throw a massive open
jam at a special location!  That, plus a full month of
our regular Sunday 8-hour events, exceeds your quota for
spontaneous collaborative media.  Happy Sharing!


SHARE MOBILE:

We're building more snakes, arranging for more channels of audio and
video, and finalizing our procedures for "Share Mobile":  setting up
multi-channel audio and video at a special location and throwing a
massive open jam.

We're working with The Kitchen (thekitchen.org) to throw our first
mobile event in their large theater/media space, on two consecutive
nights as part of their annual electronic music festival.  We'll
have 8 audio stations and 3 video stations, each with several
inputs.  The stations accept XLR, 1/4", S-Video, and composite RCA
cables.

The Kitchen is located at 512 w 19th st (btwn 10th & 11th ave) NYC.
The event is scheduled for Friday March 14 and Saturday March 15,
from 7-11pm each night.  Hrvatski will join us for a featured set
on the 15th.  Drinks will be available.

The Kitchen has agreed that all participants will be let in free, as
has always been the case at Share (there will be a $10 suggested
donation for other audience)   Everyone is invited to bring down
some portable A/V gear and take part in the fun.  As always, show
up early for the best chance to participate.

For full details and a schematic, see http://share.dj/mobile.html


SUNDAYS:

Open Video Jam  5pm to close
   Multi-user live video synthesis on 4 screens + 1 waterfall.  Bring
   video gear and VGA / RBG / S-Video / Composite cables to join in.
   We have VGA cables available for laptop users.

Open Audio Jam  5pm to close  with breaks for Featured Sets
   Multi-user audio jam on a great sound system, up to three seperate
   rooms.  Bring portable electronics and matched 1/4" cables to join.


MARCH 2003 AT SHARE:

2 March - Bubblyfish
   Bubblyfish, rite of spring!
   More of perky 8 bit sound, and noise.
   Different sound from Stravinsky, but the spirit will be there.

9 March - ( )
   ( ) will create an ambient space that the listener can
   occupy and contemplate as it gradually changes over
   time creating an unobtrusive environment in which one
   can meditate within the controlled sound space of openair.
   The sound mixes with voices and ambient sound within the
   space (people talking, the sound of glass clinking,
   ambient sounds from outside, etc) The sound often deals
   with the juxtaposition between the outside environment
   and the inside environment. His work mixes control and
   chance using loops and sound created live and ambient
   sounds collected from outside and inside. The sound
   created is somewhere between ambient and noise. ///

HyperKult 12

analog digital
Kunst und Wissenschaft zwischen Messen und Zählen

Rechenzentrum der Universität Lüneburg
21332 Lüneburg
24.-26.7.2003

Fachgruppe "Computer als Medium"
Fachbereich "Informatik und Gesellschaft" der Gesellschaft für 
Informatik e.V.

Call for Participation

Obwohl Computer keineswegs nur Rechnen oder Zählen, wird ihr Einsatz 
noch immer mit dem Schlachtruf "Digital" gekennzeichnet - im Gegensatz 
zum bloß "Analogen" früherer Medientechnik. Was damit gemeint ist, 
bleibt freilich unklar, es scheint sogar immer unklarer zu werden. Die 
Verwirrungen reichen von sensorischen Zuschreibungen wie dem "warmen 
Klang des Röhrenverstärkers" gegenüber dem "kalten Klang der CD" bis zu 
Grundlagenaussagen wie "Im Computer sind alles letztlich nur Nullen und 
Einsen." Wer damit arbeitet, kann diese schnellen Zuschreibungen 
freilich nicht wiederfinden. Da geht es mehr um präzise Kopierarbeit, 
einheitliche Speichermedien oder programmierte Bearbeitung.

Die Phänomenologie des Digitalen, ehemals von Zahlenreihen auf 
Grünmonitoren, gepixelten Graphiken, von Artefakten wie Aliasing, 
Moiré, Quantisierungsrauschen, den Bächlein des Schriftsatzes und dem 
Sonderzeichenmassaker von 7-Bit- ASCII geprägt, hat sich verändert. 
Ihre Oberflächen verraten nichts mehr von den 'darunterliegenden' 
Codes. Im Gegenteil, die Erscheinungsformen der alten analogen und 
digitalen Medien werden gleich mitsimuliert. Das Bildwackeln und 
- -rauschen des Super-8-Films, Vinylknistern, SID-Chip und alter 
8-bit-Sampler, all' dies steht im Effekte-Menu bereit.

Geschwätz über Prozessortakte, Speichergrößen und Übertragungsraten 
verwandelt sich im Überfluss ihrer technischen und ökonomischen 
Verfügbarkeit in einen unaufgeregten täglichen Umgang mit Ressourcen.

Dabei gibt es das Digitale in der Hardware nicht. Die Schaltkreise 
unserer Computer und ihre AD-Wandler sorgen zwar für eine digitale 
Repräsentation der Signale, haben aber selbst noch Kennlinien, die 
steil, aber dennoch keine Treppenstufen sind. Geht es beim Digitalen 
also um Repräsentation, um in Kauf genommene und gewollte Fortlassung 
alles dessen, was zwischen den willkürlichen Levels von Rasterung und 
Quantisierung liegt, mit dem Ziel, danach die so zugerichteten Daten 
als Symbole manipulieren zu können.

Demgegenüber weiss eine Geschichte des Denkens und der Kunst jedoch von 
Praktiken, die von der Umwertung aller Werte, der Dekonstruktion aller 
sicher geglaubten Schemata, des Aufenthalts in verbotenen 
Zwischenbereichen leben, die das Paradoxe nutzen, dem 
alttestamentarischen und rationalistischen Ja-Ja/Nein-Nein misstrauen 
und es sich zwischen den Stühlen bequem machen.

Ist das Digitale noch zu retten? Müssen vielleicht, damit die 
Informationstechnik wieder auf die Höhe der Zeit kommt, erst 
Quanten-Computer kommen, die vielleicht besser analog zu interpretieren 
sind?

Wissenschaftliche, technische und künstlerische Beiträge, die sich der 
Leitdifferenz des Analogen und des Digitalen stellen, sollen auf der 
HyperKult 12 eine Rolle spielen.

Termine
Senden Sie bitte ein- bis zweiseitige Zusammenfassungen Ihres Beitrags 
zum Workshop HyperKult 12 (wissenschaftliche Vorträge, Demonstrationen 
technischer oder künstlerischer Art)
