Le mardi, 30 mai 2006, Upgrade Montr??al sera l???h??te de la premi??re rencontre
nord-am??ricaine de la liste de diffusion internationale <nettime>. Depuis
1995, Nettime a servi de point de rencontre important pour la discussion et
la critique de la culture du Net et de l???art, des technologies et de la
politique, d??veloppant ainsi une expression de cette culture sous le nom de
???net.criticism.??? En plus de sept langues diff??rentes, Nettime a servi de
banc d???essai pour de nombreux textes de th??orie contemporaine et d?????uvres
artistiques des nouveaux m??dias. En 2006, Nettime c??l??bre son 11e
anniversaire, fort d???une d??cennie de publications, d???interventions et de
d??bats.

Membres du public, artistes, th??oriciens, auteurs, codeurs, et curieux de
tous genres sont les bienvenu(e)s ?? cette s??rie de conf??rences, de panels et
d???ateliers qui seront suivis d???une soir??e de musique et de performance
d??di??es ?? Nettime, ses membres, ses ??uvres, ses pass??s et ses futurs. Des
membres internationaux de Nettime seront de la partie, ainsi que des
mod??rateurs de liste. Nettime est une liste ouverte et cet ??v??nement est
ouvert au public.

<nettime> n???est pas seulement une liste de diffusion, mais un v??ritable
effort collectif ?? la formulation d???un discours international et en r??seau
qui ne fait pas la promotion d???une euphorie dominante (afin de vendre des
produits) ni ne perp??tue un pessimisme cynique r??pandu par des journalistes
et des intellectuels des ???vieux??? m??dias qui ont tendance ?? g??n??raliser les
???nouveaux??? m??dias avec une compr??hension vague de leurs aspects
communicatifs. Nous avons produit, et continuerons de produire, des livres,
des manuels et des sites web en diverses langues pour qu???une critique
???immanente??? du Net circule ?? la fois enligne et hors-ligne.

La formation du groupe Nettime date du printemps 1995. Une premi??re
rencontre intitul??e <nettime> s???est tenue en juin 1995, ?? la Biennale de
Venise, faisant partie de l?????v??nement du Club Berlin. La liste en tant que
telle a d??but?? ses activit??s ?? l???automne cette ann??e-l??. Une premi??re
compilation sur papier est apparue en janvier 1996, ?? la deuxi??me ??dition de
l?????v??nement Next Five Minutes (la sois-disante s??rie ZKP). La liste a
organis?? sa propre conf??rence en mai 1997 ?? Ljubljana et ??tait intitul??e
???The Beauty and the East???. Une anthologie de 556 pages est sortie en 1999 :
Readme! Ascii Culture and the Revenge of Knowledge (Autonomedia: New York
(ISBN: 1570270899)).

<The Upgrade> est un r??seau international et ??mergent de n??uds autonomes
unis par l???art, la technologie et un engagement ?? faire le pont entre
divisions culturelles. Upgrade Montr??al est organis?? par tobias c. van Veen,
Sophie Le-Phat Ho et Anik Fournier, et a pr??sent?? au cours des deux
derni??res ann??es divers ??v??nements liant culture num??rique et arts
technologiques, des nouveaux m??dias au net-art, de la musique ??lectronique ??
la performance, d???un ??v??nement b??n??fice, ??clectique et politique, pour le
Critical Art Ensemble ?? une c??l??bration sous-z??ro de la F??te de l???Art.
Upgrade Montr??al est produit par la SAT (Soci??t?? des arts technologiques) et
collabore avec une vari??t?? d???organismes dont Studio XX, La Centrale,
terminus1525.ca, OBORO et Hexagram, entre autres. Upgrade est n?? en 1999, ??
New York City, avec des rencontres r??guli??res de commissaires et d???artistes
des nouveaux m??dias, organis??es par Yael Kanarek. Upgrade New York est
devenu partenaire de Eyebeam en 2000, et en 2004, Upgrade devient une entit??
internationale avec les villes de Vancouver et de Montr??al se joignant au
r??seau, suivis par plus d???une douzaine de villes ?? travers le monde en 2005
(et ??a continue!). La premi??re Rencontre Internationale Upgrade a eu lieu en
septembre 2005, au Eyebeam (NYC), avec la participation de repr??sentants de
chaque n??ud.

On Tuesday, May 30th 2006 the Upgrade Montr??al will bring together the first
North American gathering of the global mailing list, <nettime>. Since 1995,
Nettime has been a focal point for discussion and criticism of internet
culture and art, technologies and politics, developing an expression of Net
culture known as "net.criticism." In over seven languages, Nettime has
served as the testing ground for numerous texts and artistic works of new
media and contemporary theory. In 2006, Nettime celebrates its 11th birthday
against the backdrop of over a decade of publications, interventions and
debates. 

Members of the public, artists, theorists, writers, codemonkeys and the
curious are welcome to attend a series of talks, panels and workshops
followed by an evening of music and performance devoted to Nettime, its
members, it works, its pasts and its futures. International members of
Nettime will be in attendance including list moderators. Nettime is an open
list and this event is open to all of the public!

<nettime> is not just a mailing list but an effort to formulate an
international, networked discourse that neither promotes a dominant euphoria
(to sell products) nor continues the cynical pessimism, spread by
journalists and intellectuals in the 'old' media who generalize about 'new'
media with no clear understanding of their communication aspects. We have
produced, and will continue to produce books, readers, and web sites in
various languages so an 'immanent' net critique will circulate both on- and
offline.

The formation of the Nettime group goes back to spring 1995. A first meeting
called <nettime> was organized in June 1995, at the Venice Bienale, as a
part of the Club Berlin event. The list itself took off in the Fall. A first
compilation on paper appeared in January 1996, at the second Next Five
Minutes events (the so-called ZKP series). The list organized its own
conference in Ljubljana in May 1997, called 'The Beauty and the East'. A 556
pages nettime anthology came out in 1999: Readme! Ascii Culture and the
Revenge of Knowledge (Autonomedia: New York (ISBN: 1570270899)).

<The Upgrade> is an international, emerging network of autonomous nodes
united by art, technology, and a commitment to bridging cultural divides.
Upgrade Montreal is organised by tobias c. van Veen, Sophie Le-Phat Ho and
Anik Fournier, and over the past two years has featured diverse events
bridging digital culture and the technology arts, from new media and net art
to electronic music and performance, from an eclectic political benefit for
Critical Art Ensemble to a subzero celebration of Art's Birthday. The
Upgrade Montr??al is produced by SAT and collaborates with various
organisations including Studio XX, La Centrale, terminus1525.ca, OBORO and
Hexagram among others. The Upgrade began in 1999 with a regular gathering of
new media artists and curators in New York City organised by Yael Kanarek.
Upgrade New York partnered with Eyebeam in 2000, and in 2004 the Upgrade
went international with Vancouver and Montreal joining the network, followed
by over a dozen worldwide locations in 2005 (and growing!). The first
Upgrade International Gathering was held September 2005 in NYC at Eyebeam
with representatives from each global node.
