Subject: GATES Call 2

In basso in italiano / Scroll down for Italian version.

GATES / July 4 - September 30 2003

GATES - Starting from Greece
Gates is a total new collaborative art experiment, it is a non-conventional
exhibition; one can participate not by sending video or digital work on the
topic, but creating a network, circulation of action-communication, between
real and cyberspace, between visual and word, related to the symbolic icon
of the Gate, with its metaphoric, symbolic, of computer science, and
telematic, implications, gates as ways of transit, as dimension of open, of
confrontation, of passages in every direction, at every level.

We are creating a new form of art that uses as matter e-communication,
relationship among persons, art debate, our real/virtual body, voice,
gesture (Karenina.it is all this); experimentals! artists, poets, critics,
theoreticians! e-post-Fluxus casseurs, e-post-post-duchamp-ists (?),
welcome!, Karenina.it is an open gate for what you think, and for what you
do.

GATES / 4 Luglio - 30 Settembre 2003

GATES - Partiamo dalla Grecia
Gates è un esperimento d'arte collaborativa completamente nuovo, una mostra
non convenzionale; non si partecipa inviando propri lavori in video o
immagini a tema, ma creando un network, circolazione d'azione-comunicazione
tra reale e ciberspazio, tra visualità e parole, collegati all'icona
simbolica della porta, con le sue implicazioni metaforiche, simboliche,
informatiche e telematiche, porte come vie di transito, come dimensione di
apertura, di confronto, di passaggio in ogni direzione, a ogni livello.

Stiamo creando una nuova forma d'arte che usa come materia la comunicazione
elettronica, il rapporto tra le persone, il dibattito sull'arte, il nostro
corpo/voce/gesto reali/virtuali (Karenina.it è tutto questo).
Sperimentali! artisti, poeti, critici, teorici! casseurs e-post-Fluxus,
e-post-post-duchamp-isti (?), benvenuti!, Karenina.it è una porta aperta per
ciò che pensate e per ciò che fate.

Call for works/essays

ICONography

Critiquing the Icon

Curated by Patrick Lichty

Hosted by Turbulence.org

Deadline: September 15th, 2003

Opening October 1st, 2003

=20

The lowly icon is one of the fundamental building blocks of any =
graphically-oriented computer operating system. They act as signifiers =
for the most basic operating functions and structures as well as =
mnemonics for programs on the metaphorical 'desktop'.  However, one can =
only begin to consider how symbolic grammars such as those used in =
computer systems reveal the inner workings of the digital environment, =
its biases, or its historical referents, both technological and =
cultural.  ICONOGRAPHY calls to artists to consider the icon as a =
fundamental element of visual grammar on the screen, and almost as =
essential to the cultural syntax of the computer as the alphanumeric =
character.  Can icons be part of the ongoing dialogue on technological =
art forms, or are they merely visual devices?  It is hoped through =
seeking a critical engagement with the icon, new questions can be asked =
about its form, function, and location within the culture of computers.

=20

CALL FOR WORKS

ICONography will focus on the subject of the 32x32 icon, although others =
such as smaller formats like file folder markers, etc. will be =
considered.   Any icon-based work that meets the format constraints is =
eligible.  Interactive and time-based artworks are encouraged as well, =
but may be used in single-frame format if physical exhibitions are =
realized (under discussion).  If you have any questions regarding the =
nature of your work, please note the Submission Guidelines, then contact =
the curator. =20

=20

CALL FOR ESSAYS/CRITICAL WORKS

The ICONography exhibition is calling to the arts and academic community =
for critical works that address issues related to the use of icons in =
the computer environment.  What are the parallels with historical or =
even paleolithic forms, religious iconography, pictographic languages, =
hidden agendas in iconic subjects, or ontologies of graphic systems such =
as the paradigms presented by the Macintosh and Windows operating =
systems by their use of icons?  ICONography seeks to ponder these =
questions as the artists push the boundaries of the genre.  Over 1000 =
words preferred; images are also encouraged, and text format in plain =
text, MS Word, or Word Perfect 9 or less.  Experimental formats are also =
acceptable, but representation is by curator's discretion.=20

=20

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

All images will be limited to a size of 32x32 pixels, any bit depth is =
acceptable.    Preference will be given to bitmap-oriented work =
(GIF/JPG, ICO), although other formats will be considered.  =
Interactivity, etc is also encouraged, as long as the curator can =
relocate and embed the works into pop-up windows that will open in the =
exhibition layout.

There is no maximum for number of icons submitted, but it is asked that =
artists view their submissions discriminately. A brief description of =
the image(s) of up to 75 words and a short biography of up to 50 words =
maximum is also requested. Please email all submissions to voyd {AT} voyd.com =
by no later than Sept. 15th , 2003, Midnight US CST.  No entry fees are =
required.

=20

Terms:

Artists agree to allow exhibition of images on exhibition website, =
promotional materials, and on print media (prints/catalogues) for =
possible gallery venues (under negotiation).  ICONography is a =
non-profit exhibition for the heightening of the awareness of new media =
genres, sponsored by Patrick Lichty and hosted by Turbulence.org.  No =
transfer of ownership or rights except solely for those related to the =
purposes of promoting the exhibition is implied.

=20

A catalogue of the exhibition is planned for December 2003.  Artists =
will be able to buy the publication at production cost.

Subject: Call for 24/7 news

i am glad to inform you that we are planning a publication of 24/7: Wilno -
Nueva York project, which is going to take place at the contemporary art
centre, vilnius www.cac.lt this fall. it's going to be a black & white
newspaper in two editions, the early and the late one. since it is based on
open source publishing and self-regulation, your contribution is crucial to
both of them.

hence we would like to ask you to SEND US SOME NEWS to be published in the
neswpaper. the deadline for submission is august 15.

your news are welcome both in text (varying from a single headline to
interview to an article to [...] and image format (jpegs or tiff). please
send them to virginija januskeviciute, the curator of the cac vilnius, at
virginija {AT} cac.lt, tel. + 370 5 2609531, fax + 370 5 2623954. please note
that the 24/7 newspaper will be published with a considerable delay of your
transmission (up to one month), thus escaping the real time and possibly
leaping into unreal one, where things happen live, but in different speeds
and not at the same time.

we would be also very happy if you could consider thinking about the
structure and distribution of the 24/7 newspaper itself: what sections it
should contain, what topics convey, how the information should be displayed,
what should be the ways of its distribution? maybe you would even like to
suggest the title of the newspaper? our aim is to make this newspaper into a
collective experiment of publishing.

if you would like to learn more about 24/7: Wilno - Nueva York project,
please go to http://www.discordia.us, where the open concept of the project
is posted at http://www.discordia.us/scoop/special/eadobbs/?eaid=37 (there's
lots of room for your comments and remixes of the concept), or simply visit
the contemporary art centre, vilnius at http://www.cac.lt.

the very basics of the publication are the following: the early edition of
the 24/7 newspaper is going to be published for the opening of the 24/7
exhibition 12th september at the contemporary art centre, vilnius. it will
contain program of events, information about its participants and their
projects as well as everyones contribution to the news section (not to
forget special projects you might propose.) the late one will be published
after the show. it's going to focus more on what has happened in the course
of the project. both newspapers will be distributed via vilnius cac mailing
list as well as at the exhibition itself.

please forward this message to anyone whom you consider a good source of
news.

looking forward to hear from you. on behalf of 24/7 organisers.

ISEA2004: The 12th International Symposium on Electronic Art
************************************************************
                   CALL FOR PROPOSALS
************************************************************
    +++   Deadline extended to 20 September, 2003   +++
************************************************************

                 http://www.isea2004.net

             - Stockholm - Tallinn - Helsinki -
                 August 14 - 22, 2004

new media art - media culture research - electronic music -
art and science - cultural and social applications for new media -

New media meets art, science, research, and popular culture at
ISEA2004 in Stockholm - Tallinn - Helsinki. For the first time an
event of this scale is being organised between three cities and on
the ferry travelling between these three Baltic countries.
International participants and local audiences attend thematic
conferences, exhibitions, live performances, screenings, satellite
events, concerts and clubs. Many events are also interfaced via
television, radio, broadband Internet, and mobile networks.

We are encouraging: Socially, critically and ecologically engaging
work; Projects that bring the creative media to the streets; Projects that
are worn on or inside people; Context sensitive work in the museums;
Projects that float, dock or sail; Screen based media as it appears in 2004;
Sea Fair: technological gizmos for ferry travellers and future media
archaeologists to discover; Bridges between club scenes and art venues; Most
engaging works from performing arts that engage new media, users, and
audiences; Networks to network...

Key themes for the event include:
Networked experience (Stockholm)
Wearable experience (Tallinn)
Wireless experience (Helsinki)
Histories of the new: media arts, media cultures, media technologies
- - all cities

Additional themes include:
Open source and software as culture (Helsinki)
Critical interaction design (Helsinki)
Geopolitics of media (Tallinn)
Interfacing sound (Helsinki and on the Ferry - in collaboration with
Koneisto - check out http://www.koneisto.com for details of this year's
Koneisto Festival 24-26 July 2003)

We are currently inviting proposals for projects and papers for the
exhibitions, conferences and associated programs during ISEA2004.  Projects
might include: works for exhibition in a gallery; workshops; installations
in public spaces; live performance; interfaced screenings; games or shared
environments; projects which encourage remote participation - etc.

Proposals for the conference can include papers and panels but we are
equally interested in workshops and roundtables:  discussion formats that
encourage participation and exchange of ideas.

We are also working with a range of local organisations who may be able to
host short and medium term residencies or workshops for artists who are keen
to spend a longer time working with local artists and organisations.
Information on these opportunities will be regularly added to the web site,
so do register to receive updates.  ISEA2004 will be an exciting week long
event, but we are also interested in providing a space to build long term,
sustainable exchange and collaboration.

The time on the Ferry will provide a space for less formal dialogue and
social intercourse, so feel free to propose workshops and meetings for the
exchange of information and ideas.

Our over all aim for ISEA2004 is to create an event which is thematically
and critically coherent and provides new insight.

Please note that ISEA2004 is a forum for artistic, academic, and culturally
or socially relevant work that has not previously been presented in
international forums (you may have showed/presented it in your local
context).

All submissions are done via our website using a web form and stored into a
database. This procedure allows us to have the proposals reviewed by
International Programme Committee (IPC) members.  We very much look forward
to hearing your ideas!

Call for Contributions to Sarai Reader 04 :  Crisis/Media

(apologies for cross posting to subscribers of Sarai Reader List, 
FibreCulture, BytesforAll, Commons-Law and Spectre)

I. Introducing the Sarai Reader 

Sarai, (www.sarai.net) an interdisciplinary research and practice programme 
on the city and the media, at the Centre for the Study of Developing 
Societies  invites contributions (texts and images)
to Sarai Reader 04 : Crisis/Media

We also invite proposals to initiate and moderate discussions on the themes  
of the Sarai Reader 04 on the Reader List

outline below. To know about the format of the articles that we invite, see 
'Guidelines for Submissions' below.

The Sarai Reader is an annual publication produced by Sarai/CSDS(Delhi). The

Geert Lovink  (Media Theorist & Internet Critic, Brisbane)

II. Crisis/Media : Concepts & Themes

 From the very beginning of this century we have hurtled on as if from crisis 
to crisis. As if all the ghosts of the 19th and the 20th centuries, decades 
of war, colonial plunder, totalitarian repression and the hardening of 
secterian animosity had suddenly decided to come home to roost in a frenzied 
attempt at revisiting on the present all the accumulated tragedies of the 
past that we had thought we had left behind us as we gingerly made our way 
into our times.

The images of planes crashing into skyscrapers, of entire cities being bombed 
into submission from the air, of occupying armies and fleeing civilians, of 
suicide bombers, ethnic cleansing  and riot police assaulting unarmed 
demonstrators have branded themselves on to our consciousness with mounting 
frequency. These are the substance of 
the meditations of all our mornings, as we pick up the day's newspaper, 
switch on the radio in the kitchen, or the television in the living room, or 
log on to the internet, We have witnessed flash floods, epidemics, economic 
collapse, mass migrations and an 
intensification of the regimes of surveillance and control on a near global 
scale. Our newspapers, our television sets, our radios, our websites  and our 
minds have become prisoners of war, and there seems to be no sign of a 
ceasefire in sight, at least as of now.

The world we live in has also witnessed an enormous increase in the scale and 
complexity of communicative possibilities. An explosion of the means of 
delivering news, comment and images at rapid speed over diverse media has 
meant dispersal as well as amplification of the dynamics of any event or 
process, anywhere in the world. Satellite 
communications, a new telecom revolution, cheap electronic devices, computers 
and the internet ensure that no moment goes un reported. There is no moment 
that is not potentially global anymore.

These are times for sober reflection, and that, precisely, is what we often 
find missing, as we open the newspaper, listen to the radio, or television. 
Yet, a variety of different, dissident, passionate and sane voices are also 
making themselves heard, through combinations of new and old media, as never 
before. The 'Paid For' news of the mainstream media is often exposed for what 
it is, even before it appears, by an increasingly vigilant network of 
independent local-global media initiatives. The numbers that turn out on the 
streets of the world's major capitals to protest against war seem to suggest 
that despite huge propaganda efforts, 'the spin' isn't working, at least not 
all of the time. We live, as the Chinese curse has it, in 'interesting times'.

This accumulation of situations of crisis in the first three years of our 
century, and their rapid, almost real time dissemination in the media, have 
no doubt precipitated new opportunities for communicative action and global 
reflection, just as they have signaled an onset of a severe crisis within the 
media - a crisis of over-stimulation and under-statement, of exaggeration and 
exhaustion, of censorship and spin-doctoring, of fear and favour. More than 
at any other time before, the power and reach of the media, the potential of 
the usage of technologies of information and communication for control or for 
freedom, and the several intertwined professional, cognitive and ethical 
dilemmas that media practitioners face on a daily basis. All these  require 
us to pause and take stock of the fact that the crises reported in the media 
have a bearing on the crisis of reporting in the media - That the media and 
the crisis that media require to be themselves today can no longer be seen as 
distinct categories, hence - CRISIS/MEDIA.

We are interested in recognizing the fact that media today are located 
precisely along the intersections and fault lines that connect and divide 
representations (media events and processes) and structural problems. The 
Reader aims to excavate the relationships 
between these structures and the representations that accompany them. Crisis 
Media respond as much to wars and ongoing ethnic conflicts as they do to 
environmental crises or the AIDS epidemic and the SARS panic. Given this 
situation, how can Crisis/Media go beyond their historically framed task of 
'correcting' mainstream opinions and actually experiment with other 
narratives? How can the global rise of mobile devices be utilized to 
'receive, transmit and broadcast' peoples' stories as they occur, and by 
doing so, break the separation between reporters and the reported?

Further, is it possible for us to begin to  debate and  problematize the 
whole notion of 'representation' itself, positing more immediate forms of  
testimony that resist  mediatization? These are open questions, with no 
satisfactory and coherent answers, but Sarai Reader 04 would like to take 
them on, so as to map new territories of thought about media practice.

A Preliminary List of Themes (these are not chapter or section 
headings, but point to areas of interest) could include :

The Political Economy of Contemporary Media Forms
Media Wars and Media in times of War : Weapons of Mass Distraction?
Taking Sides and Speaking Truth : The Reportage of Ethnic Conflict 
and Civil Unrest
Surveillance, Intelligence, Reportage : The Journalist and the Informer
Brand Disloyalty : Critiques and Analyses of Immaterial Capital in 
the Information Age
Aliens and Others : Media and Migration
Reporting the Crises of Everyday Life 
Re imagining Tactical Media
Evaluating Independent Media Strategies in the time of Globalization
Mobile Maverick Media : the Technology and Politics of Dispersed and 
Mobile Media Forms
Viral Media
Communicable Diseases : Epidemics as Information
The Body as Data
Crises of Representation : Ethics, Epistemics, Aesthetics
The Space for Free Speech

Sarai Reader 04 - Crisis/Media, seeks to engage with this situation by 
inviting a series of reflections by media practitioners (journalists, 
independent media activists, filmmakers,photographers, artists, commentators 
and editors) and  thinkers, writers, scholars, activists and critics. 

We are looking for incisive analysis, as well as passionate writing, for 
scholarly and theoretical rigour as well as for critical and imaginative 
depth. We invite essays, reportage, diaries and memoirs, entries from 
weblogs, edited compilations of online discussions, photo essays, image-text 
collages and interpretations of found visual material.

We are interested in testimonies from all theatres of global conflict - be 
they New York, London, Baghdad or Kabul, in reports from continuing crisis 
situations - in Kinshasa, Ahmedabad, Ramallah, and in essays and reflections 
that address the world from Delhi, Belgrade, Karachi, Beijing, Buenos Aires 
and Tehran. 

We are interested in anything from anywhere at all that makes for 
intelligent, provocative and critical encounters with the world we all live 
in. Contributors can also consider the structural, technological, rhetorical 
and aesthetic dimensions of understanding, interpreting and expressing 
aspects of what they see as situations of crisis. They can reflect on 
ecological crises, crisis within social institutions and the many unreported 
and unexamined crises of everyday life that be-devil the contemporary moment. 
Hate speech and unreflective testimonies of victim-hood are however not 
welcome.

The Sarai Reader 4, like the previous Sarai Readers, will be international in 
scope and content, while retaining a special emphasis on reflection about and 
from areas that normally lie outside the domain of mainstream discourses. We 
are particularly interested in cutting edge writing and contributions from 
South Asia, South and Central America, South East Asia, China, Tibet and 
Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Australia. This is not an 
expression of a 'regional' or 'third world' bias, rather it is an affirmation 
of the fact that some of the most exciting emergent voices are located in 
these regions. We of course welcome, innovative and critical contributions 
from Europe, North America and Japan. We are especially keen to shape the 
Reader in response to events such as the Next Five Minutes 4 Conference, and 
hope that some of the ideas that get generated in such events can find their 
way into the debates that the Reader hopes to embody.

If you feel these issues and questions are of interest to you. If your 
practice, thought, curiosities, research or creative activity has impelled 
you to think about some of these issues, we invite you to contribute to Sarai 
Reader 04 : Crisis/Media.

From: Felix Stalder <felix {AT} openflows.org>
Subject: Call for papers: Newspaper on IPR  {AT}  WSIS


Call for Papers

Public Netbase, Vienna [1] is in the process of putting together a newspaper 
(in English) to be distributed at the World Summit on the Information Society 
(WSIS) in Geneva [2] (including preparatory and follow-up events). The print 
run will be 20'000 copies.

The aim of the newspaper is to alert the delegates and the participating 
public that current and future regulations and practices concerning 
intellectual property are among the most fundamental issues shaping the 
Information Society. At stake is whether the information order will be 
characterized by centralized control by a few transnational owners of IP 
claims with the majority of the population relegated to the status of passive 
consumers or excluded entirely; or by decentralized participation of the 
widest range of citizens around the world who have access to intellectual 
resources of production inside and outside the market system.

To highlight the issues, the newspaper will frame them as two competing 
scenarios for the future: control vs. participation.

For this project, we are looking for texts -- aimed at a general, interested 
audience -- that develop the either of the scenarios, be it as a critique of 
the present or as an introduction of an alternative. The papers can be 
theoretical or practical, focussing on any of the many dimension and should 
not be substantially longer than 1000 words.

We will accept both original texts and text that have already been published 
elsewhere. The texts will be published under a CreativeCommons license [3] 
unless requested otherwise by the author.

Please send texts, questions or comments to open {AT} t0.or.at
