live electronic audiovisual performance

Wednesday June 18
 {AT}  Lanfranchis Memorial Discotheque
Lvl 2, 144 Cleveland St, Chippendale

 From 8pm. $5 donation.

Featuring:

Severed Heads
Snagglepussy
Julius Ambroisine & Aaron Hull


SEVERED HEADS span the period from long before sampling (we
used tape) to the very latest in lap top pop. We inspired the people
who inspired you! Having started an online community before the
Internet (on Fidonet), made the first CDROM by an Australian record
label (on Sony) and created a MP3 disc BEFORE MP3 was EVEN
INVENTED (using MP2 cool huh?) the Heads are now gearing up for
a set of DVDs, 3D web video and a Bluetooth based live environment.
We R0Ol!

Meanwhile we love a pop tune, a chat and a beer and are delighted
to entertain and explain and hand out as many so-called 'secrets' as
possible. So join us, and we will have some fun! http://sevcom.com


SNAGGLEPUSSY creates 'right-moody' sonics from multi-manipulated
soundfx samples and sculpted feedback that results from plugging
her mixer in wrong.

For disorientation she will also use her  WATCH ME TYPE mode.
WATCH ME TYPE is sound based automatic writing / cut-up /
text collage, cowardly mediated by technology.

Snagglepussy is a mutation of Gail Priest. www.snagglepussy.net


JULIUS AMBROISINE & AARON HULL rework and manipulate
audio, abuse malfunctioning audio equipment, formulate glitches
and improvise with various electronics and guitar. The sounds
they produce are drone-based and filled with sonic texture.


DISORIENTATION is a monthly series of events, aiming to bring
together both well-known and emerging artists working in audio or
audiovisual performance. For a performance opportunity contact

Subject: Capitalism Lab

Listmembers might be interested in the following free event in London:

4th Capitalism and Philosophy Lab
Saturday 28 June, 2-6 pm
Room A116, Middlesex University, Tottenham Campus, White Hart Lane, 
London N17. White Hart Lane BR.
Admission Free. ALL WELCOME.


Theme: Communism and Friendship on the Work of Maurice Blanchot

Speakers:	Dr Lars Iyer, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne
		Dr William Large, College of St Mark and St John


'Writing passes through the advent of communism.'
		Blanchot, The Infinite Conversation

Maurice Blanchot's turn to the consideration of political questions 
from the late 1950s onwards and his active interventions in French 
political life might surprise those who know him as a literary critic 
and novelist. But to those familiar with The Space of Literature or 
The Book to Come, it is clear that he never contents himself with 
upholding the value of the great work of art or the great literary 
artist, or indeed the literary institution itself. His concern, 
rather, is to attest to the literary, understood in terms of a 
certain experience of language inseparable from communism; for 
instance the literary practice of Bataille, which attests to an 
opening to the Other, to a certain community or communitarian demand. 
This promise of communism, and it can only be a promise for Blanchot, 
is inseparable from friendship. This is not a friendship of 
recognition or familiarity, but of coming into contact with what is 
most strange and unknown in the friend, and this 'impossible 
friendship' becomes the basis of a new way of thinking the social and 
political.


The Capitalism and Philosophy Lab is a regular workshop on post-1968
philosophical approaches to capitalism. For those who believe that
genuine philosophical advances were made in 1960's and 70's France (in
the work, for instance, of Deleuze, Badiou, Lacan, Laruelle, Lyotard),
there is an ever more pressing need to explore and test seriously the
contribution these developments make (and can
make) to Marxist theory and the analysis of contemporary capitalism. New
theoretical tools are needed for the future of Marxist thought. We
suggest that one crucial way forward is to rebut the common but
one-sided perception that the abovementioned philosophical developments
are essentially antagonistic to Marxist philosophy. (One exegetical aim
of the workshop is to place Althusserianism back into its proper
philosophical context.)

As well as critical and directed work on texts and key concepts, these
sessions aim to identify and explore vital components in the current
phase of capitalism. One central focus for discussion will be the
relations between technoscience and capital. What implications do
developments and accelerations in technoscience have for philosophy and
Marxism together? Our hope is that, taken together, these lines of
investigation might provide powerful and new theoretical concepts in the
struggle against contemporary capitalism.

|	Ordinary people pay the highest price in any conflict. When 
conflicts last for a long time, people hope, every day of every year, 
that this will be the last. They just cannot imagine that human 
madness can last so long. But it does, and the same questions have to 
be asked, again and again. Until the need arises to turn to the 
previous generations, not simply to ask, but to hear answers.

Subject: Invitation Connected Club 6/19th The dynamic scale of interactive space

CONNECTED CLUB  PRESENTS:

"The dynamic scale of interactive space" & "RemoteHome: a new home for the 
mobile society" by Tobi Schneidler

Location: Theatrum Anatomicum- Waag Society- Nieuwmarkt 4- Amsterdam
Date: 19th of June 2003
Time: 19.00 o'clock
Reservations:  floor {AT} waag.org

The Connected Club is a series of presentations related to Waag 
Society's-programme 'Connected! The making of a live art exchange'. Tony 
Schneidler is invited to talk and discuss the topic of "The dynamic scale 
of interactive space" and to present the Remote-home-project.

The RemoteHome: a new home for the mobile society

The RemoteHome is a flat share that will exist in two distant cities at the 
same time: London and Berlin. Both spaces are electronically connected 
through the Internet, to turn furniture and architectural elements into 
tangible and sensual means of communication.

Sensory and kinetic devices, as well as an interactive light installation 
allow for the exchange between this remotely living group of friends. A 
mobile wireless artefact, in the shape of a transforming interactive bag, 
can be taken on journeys to stay emotionally in touch with the RemoteHome.

The project is an architectural response to the emerging notion of a 
remote-society; a society that is forming personal bonds beyond sharing 
origin or geographical proximity, a culture that is constantly on the move. 
Information technologies, in all its shapes, have led to a separation 
between the body of the messenger and the message itself. Relationships 
between people are increasingly sustained, formed or even ended over long 
distances, through the use of communication technologies, like the mobile 
phone, e-mail or instant messaging.

The RemoteHome is proposing more intuitive ways of communicating and 
exchanging presence. The materiality of the architecture becomes the 
medium, the space transforms into a metaphysical reflection of its inhabitants.

The project was presented as two connected prototype spaces at the London 
Science Museum and the Raumlabor in Berlin.

The project was developed by Tobi Schneidler in cooperation with the Smart 
Studio / Interactive Institute Stockholm and the Future Textiles department 
at the Central Saint Martins in London.

  Connected! The making of a live art exchange is realised with the support 
of the Netherlands Culture Fund.

Park Fiction presents: Unlikely Encounters in Urban Space Exhibition
of Park Fiction's Documenta11 Installation and International Congress:
Hamburg St. Pauli, Reeperbahn 1.

Exhibition: June 19 - July 6, open daily from 12 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Special Exhibition: the crane-model
<http://www.parkfiction.org/unlikelyencounters/koonsmann.html> shown
in New York from Andreas Siekmann
<http://www.parkfiction.org/unlikelyencounters/koonsmann.html>
Congress: June 26 - 29, 2003The exhibition and congress are free.
Seats at the conference are limited, please register with:
bernadette {AT} nadir.org

One year after Documenta 11, Park Fiction's installation returns to
Hamburg. For the first time, the installation will be shown in its
place of origin, St. Pauli, on the Reeperbahn. The exhibition will be
accompanied by an international congress: Unlikely Encounters (in
urban space), with groups from Delhi/India, Tijuana/Mexico, La
Plata/Argentina, Milan/Italy and Berlin/Munich/Hamburg.

After an intensive seven-year process of wishing, planning and
negotiating, culminating in its presentation at Documenta11, Park
Fiction, a long-term planned park project in Hamburg-St. Pauli, with
and from a collective of its residents, is in the midst of
realization. Just the right time to reflect on this successful
process: With the Documenta installation, a precise form was created,
making this exceptional process, where "Art and politics made each
other wiser" (Czenki) accessible in its model-like state. The congress
Unlikely Encounters in Urban Space will open up the view on the global
horizon, and create direct connections between similarly laid-out
projects in different countries.

Urbanism and the appropriation of cities have meanwhile become central
questions in art discourse. What appeared to be a marginal theme
skirting the outer limits of the art system has, with increasing
dominance, settled down at biennials and international exhibitions,
coming into its own as a separate, vivid branch in art. Especially
now, at the end of the industrial age, new methods of urban practice
are developing all over the world, which broaden the idea of the
possibility for artist actions and interventions in the city space.
These projects find their own space and areas of work, and cooperating
with non-art fields, out of the perspective of daily life, intervene
in economic, information and academic city planning systems. This
network of local knowledge challenges the global power of the media,
and the state and economic authorities. The congress Unlikely
Encounters in Urban Space will give groups from various countries and
fields of work the possibility to join discussions and establish
connections and relationships between various practises and
objectives. It is about nothing less than the research of the
possibility on the horizon of an experimental urbanism of the
multitude.

Exhibition from June 19 - July 06, 2003 Opening: June 19, 3-10 p.m.
with Ute Meta-Bauer.

Park Fiction presents: Unlikely Encounters in Urban Space Ausstellung
der Documenta11 Installation von Park Fiction und Internationaler
Kongress: Hamburg St. Pauli, Reeperbahn 1.

Ausstellung: 19. Juni - 6. Juli 2003, taeglich von 12 bis 22 Uhr
Kongress: 26.-29. Juni 2003

Ausstellung und Kongress kosten keinen Eintritt. Plaetze bei der
Konferenz sind begrenzt, bitte anmelden bei: bernadette {AT} nadir.org

Ein Jahr nach der Documenta11 kehrt die Installation von Park Fiction
nach Hamburg zurueck. Am Ort der Entstehung wird die Arbeit erstmals
auf St.Pauli, auf der Reeperbahn ausgestellt. Begleitet wird die
Ausstellung von dem internationalen Kongress: Unwahrscheinliche
Begegnung, mit Gruppen aus Delhi/India, Hamburg/Muenchen/Berlin/D, La
Plata/Argentina, Milano/Italia und Tijuana/Mexico.

Das langfristig angelegte Projekt eines kollektiv mit und von
AnwohnerInnen geplanten Parks in Hamburg-St. Pauli, Park Fiction,
steht nach sieben Jahren eines intensiven Wunsch-, Planungs- und
Verhandlungsprozesses und seiner Praesentation auf der Documenta11
mitten in der Realisierung. Gerade der richtige Zeitpunkt, um diesen
gelungenen Prozess zu reflektieren: mit der Documenta-Installation
wurde eine praezise Form geschaffen, diesen aussergewoehnlichen
Prozess, in dem "Kunst und Politik sich gegenseitig schlauer gemacht
haben" (Czenki), in seiner Modellhaftigkeit zugaenglich zu machen. Der
Kongress Unlikely Encounters in Urban Space wird, auf dieser Basis,
den Blick auf den globalisierten Horizont eroeffnen und direkte
Zusammenhaenge zwischen aehnlich gelagerten Projekten in verschiedenen
Laendern herstellen.

Urbanismus und die Aneignung der Staedte sind mittlerweile zu
zentralen Fragen kuenstlerischer Diskurse geworden. Was noch zu Beginn
des vergangenen Jahrzehnts ein marginales Thema am Rande des
Kunstbetriebs zu sein schien, schlaegt sich auf Biennalen und
internationalen Ausstellungen immer dominanter nieder, hat sich zu
einem eigenen, lebendigen Strang der Kunst entwickelt. Gerade jetzt,
mit dem Ende des industriellen Zeitalters, entwickeln sich ueberall
auf der Welt neue Methoden urbaner Praxis, die die Vorstellung von
kuenstlerischen Eingriffs- und Handlungsmoeglichkeiten im staedtischen
Raum erweitern. Diese Projekte suchen sich ihre Raeume und
Arbeitsfelder selbst, kooperieren mit ausserkuenstlerischen Feldern,
intervenieren aus einer Alltagsperspektive heraus in Oekonomie,
Informations-, Wissens- und Stadtplanungsysteme. Diese Netzwerke des
lokalen Wissens fordern die globale Macht der Medien, der staatlichen
und wirtschaftlichen Instanzen heraus. Der Kongress wird Gruppen aus
unterschiedlichen Arbeitsfeldern und Laendern die Moeglichkeit bieten,
Diskussionen zu verbinden, Zusammenhaenge und Beziehungen zwischen den
verschiedenen Praktiken und Zielen herzustellen. Es geht um nicht
weniger, als darum, die am Horizont erscheinenden Moeglichkeiten eines
experimentellen Urbanismus der Mengen (Multitudes) zu erforschen.

Ausstellung vom 19. Juni - 06. Juli 2003 Eroeffnung: 19. Juni, 15-22
Uhr mit Ute Meta-Bauer.
