Subject: update - garage 2003 call for entries no concept

German version below. Please forward this to any individuals or mailing
lists that you feel it would be of interest to.

Last Call for Entries - Deadline: 30th April 2003:
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------
7th festival garage 25th July - 16th August 2003 in Stralsund / Germany
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------
n o  c o n c e p t  -  a description of conditions
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Everything is possible, everything is open, everything can be done, nothing
is clearly defined.

With the apparently permanent expansion of the individual room for action
different modes of behaviour develop in dealing with the existing social and
cultural structures.

Pragmatism on one side, purposeful acting, reduced to the necessary and
practically useful, a striving for order and security. Inability to act on
the other side, resulting from a growing feeling of blurredness, of
insecurity and disorientation.

Social vacuum? Malfunction of the system? "...instability as the normal
state?" Trial and Error as the future strategy? Insecurity as a creative
force, accident as a generative mechanism? What is normality, what is
defined as normal?

garage 03 is searching for artists' positions, comments and strategies on
the topic insecurity and disorientation. Send us your proposals for
presentations, installations, performances and projects, offline or online
as well as papers and workshops.
It is possible to submit already realised projects or concepts for projects,
which are to be developed for the festival topic and/or to be realised
during the festival.

additional focus relating to the topic:

- - 5.1 Dolby Surround
(5.1 and other room sound systems as a new instrument or an extension in
both musical and narrative sense)

- - psycho accoustics
(manipulation, disturbances, infrasound, oscillation, vibration, sonic
phenomenons and sounds felt by the body, manipulations of spatial

- - mobile devices
(artisitic projects that use today's widely used mobile devices like mobile
phones, pdas, gps...)

Deadline: 30th April 2003 application forms and info:

7. Festival garage 25. Juli bis 16. August 2003 in Stralsund
- ------------------------------------------------------------
n o  c o n c e p t  -  eine Zustandsbeschreibung
- ------------------------------------------------------------

Alles ist moeglich, alles ist offen, alles ist machbar - nichts ist klar

Mit der scheinbar permanenten Erweiterung des individuellen
Handlungsspielraums entwickeln sich verschiedene Verhaltensweisen im Umgang
mit den existierenden sozialen und kulturellen Strukturen.

Pragmatismus auf der einen Seite, zweckbestimmtes Handeln, auf das
Notwendige und praktisch Nuetzliche reduziert, ein Streben nach Ordnung und
Sicherheit. Handlungsunfaehigkeit auf der andern Seite durch ein zunehmendes
Gefuehl der Unschaerfe, der Unsicherheit und Orientierungslosigkeit.

Gesellschaftlicher Unterdruck? Fehler im System? Instabilitaet als
Normalzustand? Trial and Error als Strategie der Zukunft? Unsicherheit als
kreative Kraft, Zufall als generativer Mechanismus? Was ist Normalitaet, was
wird als normal definiert?

garage 03 sucht nach kuenstlerischen Positionen, Kommentaren und
Handlungsstrategien zum Thema Unsicherheit/Orientierungslosigkeit.
Eingereicht werden koennen Vorschlaege fuer Ausstellungen, Installationen,
Performances und Projekte, offline oder online, sowie Vortraege und
Workshops. Es ist moeglich, bereits realisierte Projekte vorzuschlagen oder
aber Konzeptionen fuer Projekte, die zum Thema entwickelt und/oder waehrend
des Festivals realisiert werden sollen.

Darueber hinaus koennen Projekte zu geplanten Programmschwerpunten in
Anlehnung an das Thema eingereicht werden:

- - 5.1 Dolby Surround
(5.1 und andere Raumklangsysteme als Erweiterung des musikalischen und
dramturgischen Instrumentariums)

- - Psycho accoustics
(Manipulation, Stoerungen, Infrasound, Schwingungen, Vibrationen, akustische
Phaenomene und Klanege, die nur vom Koerper gefuehlt werden koennen,
Maniupulation der raeumlichen Orientierung...)

- - mobile devices
(kuenstlerische Projekte, die sich alltaeglicher mobiler Geraete - telefon,
pda, gps... - bedienen)

Hi to everyone!

The 4th edition of Pixxelpoint is on the way. We'll start with the new

In the meantime you may be interested in participating at Memefest
festival (www.memefest.org) that helped our event in 2002. Plese see
their communication:

"We thought you might like to hear about "Memefest: The International
Festival of Radical Communication"

As a concept, Memefest crawled out of Slovenia¹s academic and artistic
in response to the recent conditions of the country¹s cultural
While continually exposed to radical doses of branding and commercial
information and an educational system which has geared talented youth
and more towards market professions such as the advertising industry,
the founders of Memefest, have decided to create a space to help
and global youth to rise up against the powers that be while celebrating
strengths and talents these young communicators bring to their

This ³festival of radical communication² sets out to explore different
tactics for using information to shift culture and create lasting social
change. Every year, we invite submissions from international students
activists which critically approach cultural issues through text and
visuals. If you're a student of any stripe (undergrad/ grad/ part-time)
can enter your work in the official competition under one of three
(communications studies, sociology, visual arts) and qualify for an
award of
300 EUR.

For those who are interested, we have set up an extensive website with
the guidelines and an easy to use online submission form.

visit: http://www.memefest.org

No matter what you do with Memefest- submit, browse, critique, we
your input and will use it to keep evolving. After all, the world is a
pretty #$%- ed  up place and we've just begun!"

jihui - Digital Salon presents Grahame Weinbren

Friday, April 18, 2003 7 PM
 {AT}  Parsons Center for New Design
55 West 13th Street, 9th Fl.
New York, NY 10011
Live Webcast  {AT}  http://agent.netart-init.org starts 7pm EST.

Grahame Weinbren's talk, titled "In the Ocean of Streams of Stories," is
centered on the problematics of interactivity. What expressive
possibilities does it open? How is it connected with concepts of non-
and multi-linearity? Is the notion of interactive narrative a useful
one, or is it no more than old wine in new bottles? What are the
psychological and ideological implications of interactivity? Weinbren
will discuss and present his own projects in the light of these
questions, which take on a particular currency as computer interfaces
are increasingly integrated into our environments, from toys and games,
to kitchen gadgets, to advanced weapons of warfare.

Grahame Weinbren has worked in film and video since the early 1970s and
was one of the first artists to incorporate interactivity with the
moving image in the work The Erl King (1983-86). His interactive cinema
installations have been exhibited internationally since 1984. TUNNEL
(2000), a large scale interactive environment, was made in collaboration
with architect James Cathcart for a disused coal-mine in the Ruhr
Valley, and his three-screen interactive cinema installation Frames,
based on the first photographs of mental patients, was commissioned by
the NTT/ICC in Tokyo for its 1999 Biennial. Frames was recently
exhibited in "Interactive Legends" at the Kitchen in New York.
Weinbren's documentary film George, made in collaboration with Henry
Corra, was broadcast in 2000 on HBO. Weinbren has been an editor of the
Millennium Film Journal since 1985, and his writings on cinema, new
technology, and media art have been widely published. He is on the
faculty of the graduate division of the School of Visual Arts and has
recently been a visiting artist in the Department of Visual and
Environmental Studies at Harvard.  

jihui (the meeting point), a self-regulated digital salon, invites all
interested people to send ideas for discussion/performance/etc. jihui is

Johns Hopkins University, School of Arts & Sciences, Room LL07

Jon Henry is the National Chairman of the USA Exquisite Corpse. He is

Jon Henry was killed fighting the war machine, but his spirit lives on.
His spirit remains strong. So strong in fact, that he is about to lead
the Experimental Party in 10,000 Acts of Artistic Mediation.

Jon Henry's epic journey to deconstruct a new medial state begins
tomorrow evening (April 23) when his spirit is released into the night,
during my "Speech for the End of Time."

In this speech, I am calling on coalition artists to "to inspire other
artists into action by undergoing an aesthetic operation as a form of
magic designed as a mediation between our strange hostile world and the
human spirit." Jon Henry will lead that effort.

The new Jon Henry, the young artist from Baltimore, inspired by the
old, legendary John Henry, continues the brave fight against the
machine in Operation Artistic Freedom.

Here then, is an excerpt from Jon's Manifesto:

"WAR is the ultimatum of capital. It is the result of the energized
spectacle of money. God/Money is the fuel that will drive us into the
ground. Gain is intertwined in the roots of this cancerous tree of
America. And they called the mechanized vacuum of the wretched rich
freedom? As the past became history the new Jon Henry saw the object of
spectacle in front of him and he knew that in order to be free he must
fight against his assimilation; he must face the war spectacle and
battle it to his death."  - Jon Henry

Randall M. Packer
Secretary, US Department of Art & Technology


The US Department of Art & Technology

The US Department of Art and Technology is the United States 
principal conduit for facilitating the artist's need to extend 
aesthetic inquiry into the broader culture where ideas become real 
action. It also serves the psychological and spiritual well-being of 
all Americans by supporting cultural efforts that provide immunity 
from the extension of new media technologies into the social sphere.

The Experimental Party

The Experimental Party - the "party of experimentation" -  is an 
artist-based political party that has been formed to activate 
citizens across the country in an effort to bring the artists' 
message to center stage of the political process. This is a political 
awakening, 'representation through virtualization' is the major 
political thrust of the Experimental Party, it is the driving force.

World-Information Exhibition has already been presented, from 22 March to 5
April, 2003, at Novi Sad's Museum of Vojvodina, and from 19 April to 5 May,
2003 will be presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade.
Through exhibits and visual diagrams, interactive installations and digital
artworks the exhibition will offer visitors up to date information on the
impact of the expansion of worldwide communication and information networks
on various aspects of society and  professional and private life of people.

World-Information.Org is an initiative of Public Netbase/t0 and is organized
in cooperation with kuda.org-New Media Center from Novi Sad and Museum of
Contemporary Art Belgrade.

A new security paradigm overshadows the world of technology and
communication. Conflicts are
increasingly affecting the Infosphere. Communication technologies are
becoming carriers for media PR,
while psychological "truth projection" operations are turning into
socio-technical engineering challenges.

Rounding off the exhibition and the conference, World-Information Lounge
happened from 23 March to 5 April, 2003 in Novi Sad's Museum of Voivodina
where presentations and lectures as well as discussions with artists,
activists, professionals and scientist took place. Beginning with the
opening event where Christoph Kummerer (AT) and Belgrade Yard Soundsystem
(SCG) had music performance, World-Information Lounge presented variety of
themes that were discussed, accenting speakers from Serbia and Montenegro.
Some of the subjects and speakers were: Darko Fritz (HR), 010011000110.org
(IT) and Konrad Becker (AT) talked about Artistic Practice in Information
Saturation; Stanislav Svarc (SCG) about Intellectual Property and Software;
Sava Kuzmanovic from Another World is possible (SCG),  Andrej Grubacic (SCG)
and Zoran Petakov (SCG) about ICT and New Social Movements; Slobodan
Markovic from Global Internet Policy Initiative (SCG), Voja Rodic (SCG) and
Bogoljub Pjescic (SCG) both from Association of Internet Providers of Serbia
and Montenegro about e-government vs. e-society - Monopoly in Infosphere,
case Serbia; Aleksandar Radic, military analyst about Intelligence Service
in War and Peace; kuda.org (SCG) about Safe Distance video and Max Moswitzer
and Margarete Jahrmann (AT) about Nybble-Engine-Toolz project.

The World-Information Forum on "Total DisInformation Awareness: Conflict,
Control and Freedom of Information"  will be held on 20 April, 2003, in
Belgrade and will scrutinize this recent development. The conference will
act as an open and interdisciplinary forum to discuss questions such as:
"How can transparency of the control of information flows and production be
promoted rather than an opaque system of unaccountable information
dominance? How can it be assured that the public interest is represented in
a balanced way?" Speakers will include Mathias Broeckers (DE), Steve Kurtz
(US), Petar Milat (CR), Sjoera Nas (NL), Marko Peljhan (SI) and Gordan
Paunovic (YU).

World-Information Exhibition Program

World-Infostructure visualizes subject matter linked to various aspects of
the information society. It
represents the results of the research program that has been carried out,
related to with World-Information.Org since autumn 1999 and also forms the
base of World-Information.Org's online knowledge database. On 32 information
displays World-Infostructure illustrates issues associated with the
development of digital media, new communication codes and tools, and
sophisticated technical instruments e.g. the increasing use of biometric
devices or the application of data mining for direct marketing purposes. The
findings of World-Infostructure's research activities have also been
published as "Die Politik der Infosphäre.
World-Information.Org." by the Center for Civic Education, Bonn, and
Leske+Budrich, Leverkusen.

Command, control, computer and communication (C4) are the keywords for the
visitors' encounter with
current and historic surveillance and control technologies such as
implantable tracking devices and fingerprint scans. Especially in the
aftermath of the events of 11 September, 2001, governments, police and
intelligence agencies have reinforced and extended their surveillance and
eavesdrop systems. Besides displaying some of the technologies, which are
used in this context World-C4U presents arts projects such as [RT-32] -
ACOUSTIC.SPACE.LAB, NEVA Network Analysis (Marko Peljhan) or Safe Distance
(kuda.org) that examine and question these developments.

Future Heritage shows the rich, diverse and vital variety of electronic
culture. It exhibits the works
of well-known and international artists such as 0100101110101101.ORG,
Critical Art Ensemble and Darko Fritz, including artist initiative from
Serbia: Eastwood, Goran Strugar, Vladan Joler, Zoran Todorovic and
Apsolutno, that experiment and operate with new media and present-day
technologies. Their projects build a bridge between traditional artistic
practice and the possibilities that evolved with the diffusion of electronic
networks and digital devices  - they represent what will be the cultural
heritage of tomorrow.

From: Dieter Lesage <dieter.lesage {AT} skynet.be>
Subject: Table ronde 'La multitude contre la guerre' (Bruxelles/Brussel) 'De menigte tegen de oorlog' Rondetafel

This is an announcement (in French and Dutch) of a conference (in these two
languages) on 'The multitude against the war' at the Palais des Beaux-Arts
in Brussels, on Saturday April 26th 2003, 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. Several members of
the board of the French journal Multitudes will participate.

Dieter Lesage


SAMEDI 26 AVRIL 2003, DE 14H A 18H

Quand on parle de la dimension critique de l¹art visuel, il est difficile de
faire abstraction des dialogues ­ sur la société, la politique, l¹économie
et la fonction que l¹art pourrait y occuper- dans lesquels la plupart les
artistes souhaiteraient que leurs ¦uvres soient inscrites. Un tel espace
discursif est l¹élément central de Revolution/Restoration, une production du
Palais des Beaux-Arts à Bruxelles. En effet, les conférences et discussions
se dérouleront au sein de l¹installation-exposition conçue par les artistes
Nico Dockx et Christophe Terlinden dans les anciennes Salles des Ventes du
Palais des Beaux-Arts et réalisée avec un matériel recyclé provenant
d¹anciennes expositions. Au cours des trois prochains mois, leur ¦uvre va
devenir le plateau qui accueillera les débats et les discussions des
artistes, des philosophes de la culture, des architectes, des politiques,
etc. En d¹autres termes, il s¹agira d¹un espace discursif dans lequel le
travail créateur et critique, la théorie et la pratique se rejoindront. Cela
nous paraît nécessaire si on veut éviter de réduire à nouveau l¹art à un jeu
de formes et de styles.
    Le philosophe Dieter Lesage a choisi de faire une recherche sur les
concepts que nous avons mis en avant avec le titre (révolution et
restauration), non seulement en ce qui concerne leur portée dans le champ
artistique et culturel, mais aussi dans la société en général. En plein
conflit international, à un moment où les revendications sur l¹hégémonie
d¹un bloc géo-culturel ont provoqué une crise abrupte, l¹analyse de cette
nouvelle situation et de ses conséquences est une priorité pour le débat
culturel et la pratique artistique.
    Dieter Lesage et nous-mêmes, commissaires du projet, avons le plaisir de
vous inviter à assister à la table ronde que nous organisons sur ŒLa
multitude contre la guerre¹, le samedi 26 avril 2003, de 14h à 18h. La
résistance mondiale contre la guerre sera le thème d¹une rencontre avec des
membres de la rédaction de la revue française Multitudes. Multitudes a été
fondée en 2000 et a contribué largement à la discussion sur les idées
provocatrices du livre Empire de Michael Hardt et Antonio Negri. Thomas
Berns et Pierre Klein réagiront aux interventions de Yann Moulier Boutang,
Antonella Corsani, Lieven De Cauter, Giselle Donnard, Brian Holmes et Anne
Querrien. Les interventions se feront en français et en néerlandais. Une
traduction simultanée sera disponible.

ZATERDAG 26 APRIL 2003, 14u-18u

Indien we het over de kritische draagwijdte van de beeldende kunst willen
hebben, kunnen we niet voorbij aan de vertogen waarin de meeste kunstenaars
hun werk geplaatst willen zien met betrekking tot de maatschappij, de
politiek, de economie en de functie die kunst daarin eventueel kan
vervullen. In het programma Revolution/Restoration, een productie van het
Paleis voor Schone Kunsten, staat deze discursieve ruimte centraal. De
lezingen en discussies vinden plaats in de installatie die de kunstenaars
Nico Dockx en Christophe Terlinden met het gerecycleerde materiaal van
vorige tentoonstellingen in de voormalige veilingzalen van het Paleis voor
Schone Kunsten ontwikkelden. Hun werk wordt de komende drie maanden het
platform voor een reeks debatten en presentaties met kunstenaars,
cultuurfilosofen, architecten, politici, etc.: een discursieve ruimte waarin
het creatieve en het kritische werk, theorie en praktijk hand in hand gaan.
Dit lijkt ons noodzakelijk indien we kunst niet opnieuw willen reduceren tot
een spel van vormen en stijlen.
    Filosoof Dieter Lesage koos ervoor om de begrippen uit de titel
(revolutie en restauratie) te onderzoeken: niet alleen hun draagwijdte in
het artistieke en culturele veld, maar in de maatschappij in het algemeen.
Zeker nu, midden in een internationaal conflict waarbij de aanspraken op
hegemonie van één geo-cultureel blok een abrupte crisis hebben
teweeggebracht, wordt het analyseren van deze nieuwe situatie en de gevolgen
voor het culturele debat en de artistieke praktijk een prioriteit.
    Samen met Dieter Lesage nodigen we u dan ook graag uit voor de
rondetafel die hij organiseert onder de titel ŒDe menigte tegen de oorlog¹
en die zal plaatsvinden op zaterdag 26 april 2003, van 14u tot 18u. Het
wereldwijde verzet tegen de oorlog vormt het thema van een ontmoeting met
redactieleden van het Franse interdisciplinaire tijdschrift Multitudes.
Multitudes werd opgericht in 2000 en heeft in belangrijke mate bijgedragen
tot de discussie over de provocerende gedachten in het boek Empire van
Antonio Negri en Michael Hardt. Thomas Berns en Pierre Klein zullen reageren
op bijdragen van Yann Moulier Boutang, Antonella Corsani, Lieven De Cauter,
Giselle Donnard, Brian Holmes en Anne Querrien. De voertalen van de
rondetafel zijn het Nederlands en het Frans. Simultaanvertaling is voorzien.

Hi all:

We've got some really good shows coming up.

Sunday, April 13 :: the premier of Justin Manor's Cinema Fabrique:

"justin has sewn several tiny ultra brite lights into a pair of ordinary
gloves. by pointing a camera at himself and using machine vision tracking
methods, the computer knows where his hands are, and he can use them to
control his video editing software. by moving his hands around in space, he
is in fact cutting, scratching, and manipulating the visual quality of
videos in realtime."
