time is a mazing... and this is the end of history... due to the
summer of 98 and the time management breakdown and the severity of
recent activities we postponed the deadline for the next Crash Media
to the 10th of October... sorry about that - but possibly just as well...

IN BRIEF

Kindly ignore the above - it is but poor fiction.
What we are looking for is the REAL thing; content
for Crash Media issue #4.Crash Media is a publication
with a split personality; part tabloid newspaper and
part website, complete with discussion threads and a
low-interference editorial policy. [Feel free to enter
the online debate at any moment and be prepared to
find your statement in print.] Right now we are
calling for contributions for the next print issue to be
released in mid October.

      *.gif *.txt *.wav *.ra *.doc *.pic

Deadline for contributions: 10TH OCTOBER '98 !!!

Crash Media is (looking at) independent media practice;
taking media criticism off the bookshelf and stacking it
on the flyer table. Find Tech/Specs on CM and
contributions below.

              -------====###====-------

  !*!*!*! Issue 4's 'Extra Special' section: !*!*!*!
  !*!*!*!                                    !*!*!*!
  !*!*!*!         THE END OF HISTORY         !*!*!*!

Issue 4 will also include the following permanent
sections(->Medium Roast, ->Culture Club, ->Under The
Needle, ->Access Denied, ->Balzac Nation, ->Strangeways).

Contributions in many guises required: deep undercover
analyses, sub-cutaneous cuts, bi-lateral dissections,
polemics for the hard of reason, trinkets for the virtual
mantelpiece, eye-sores for the foot-sore, nectar for the
hive mind, befuddlement for conspiracists, personal
highlights and urban low-lights.

In other words: articles, logos, interviews, artwork,
reviews, literature, listings, cartoons and info-blips.

We favour text within the 500 to 800 word limit - and we
envy the capacity to make a strong point with 200 words!
Scans should be 300dpi and stuffed, send as attachments
(MAC or PC) - stamp-based mail is just as good. Currently
we are not able to pay contributors. Every contributor
will receive ten copies of Crash Media.

              -------====###====-------

Subject: Financing the Next Millenium

F.N.M. (Financing the Next Millenium)
    by Raul Marroquin.
September 25 to September 27 1998 Gallery Aschenbach in Amsterdam presents:
F.N.M. a three-day interdisciplinary event by media artist Raul Marroquin.
This project is the last of a trilogy that the artist has been working on
in the last years:
1)"CAUTION Chapter I Armed  Confrontations" Gallery Aschenbach 1996,
2)“ i  ® TM  Symbols of the Past or the rules of the Future at Open Space
in Amsterdam and now F.N.M.
One of  Marroquin's personal goals with the final episode of this trilogy
is to discuss how financially prepared the world is to deal with the
economical challenges of the next millenium, in the reclusive, relaxed and
unconventional settings of an art gallery. With porjects like this, he also
aims to contribute to (what he believes is one of the most important
questions in his profession) the redefinition of the role of the artist in
todays postindustrial society.
Throughout the last years, it has become clear that this sort of informal
events encourage different approaches to the discussion of such important
issues such: as the prohibition of the use of chemical weapons in the case
of "CAUTION Chapter I Armed Confrontations" first in 1996 and “ in the
Internet during the exhibition in Open Space in 1997.
F.N.M. combines interviews , debates, round tables, discussions and
presentations  that address a wide variety of issues: globalization, open
markets, single regional and universal currencies, the economical gaps
between East and West, North and South (and all of the detailed intricacies
of  geoeconomics) the influence of  new information and communications
technololies in the financial world, and many other the questions put by
todays rapid changes in economics.
In order to achieve  the best results within this particular framework, a
selected group of  experts in many of these different areas have been
invited to participate and contribute via the different options available
at Aschenbach Galerry during these three days of F.N.M. Investors,
politicians and civil servants, financial analysts, academics, journalists,
bankers, financers and other representatives of the many different
diciplines that are part of todays financial world. Because of the same
reason, the content of this project has been delegated to a small group of
experts that have developed and implemented the basic ideas behind F.N.M.
Many of the participants and contributors have already worked in some of
the artist's previous projects as well as De Hoeksteen Live! Television
-Marroquin's own six year old, 12 hour long  live, political and financial
program for Amsterdam cable television- as well as his weekly radio show
and De HoeksteenNet page in the WWW.  These individuals and organizations
used to Marroquin's ad hoc approach to these sort of events and users
communication technology.
A great deal of the input also comes from "newomers" especially invited for
the event that can take part by been present at the gallery or via
telephone, fax, e-mail moderated news groups, IRC, ICQ and video
conferencing.
Some general subjects have been introduced among paticipants under titles
such as: "Free Markets ... Who's Freedom?" "Euro vs. $, The Match of the
Century."  "Financial Indicators," "The Emerging Markets," "Real Serious
Money for the Next Millenium,"  "Tiger Economies = Paper Tigers, " and
other themes that indicate the way in wich world finances will be heading
at the turn of the century as well as those that  will be included in the
debate throughtout the weekend.
Flexibility and improvisation are both integral components of F.N.M.
features as "Lattest Financial News" and "Breaking News" are also a part of
the options available during F.N.M.
User Communications, Community Services and Public Access  are an integral
part of the event in orther to assure a maximum of participation of  those
that cannot be present at the gallery on those particular dates.
IRC, ICQ, Moderated News Groups, and Point - Point & Multipoint
videconferencing are permantly available in order to make sure that the
participation from groups and individuals outside the perimeter of
Amsterdam can participate.
On-Line Dispatches are been regulary transmmited from areas as close as
Amsterdam and as far as  New York  and Hong Kong on a regular basis
All events are webcasted live and developments are documented and reviewed
in "F.N.M. On-Line" a publication that covers events on an hourly basis
URL: http://www.Desk.nl./~hksteen "F.N.M. On-Line" also offer links to all
mayor financial on-line services. A hard copy version of this publication
is also available upon request with the latest news throughout the entire
72 hours.
A final CD-Rom will be featured at the end of the event featuring the high
lines, transcripts of discussions and conclusions reached at the end of it.
Most events are cablecasted live via Salto (Amsterdam cable operator)
for the city's metropolitan area and those that are not possible because of
the Station's regular programming will be cablecasted later.
In-house audio and video channels keep both partcipants and visitors alike
updated on events taking place at the gallery, the latest financial
developments as well as events that might influence world markets.
F.N.M. also includes an exhibition of works by the artist namely: objects,
wall works, displays, installations,  projections, single channel audio and
video works, prints, multiples, ready-mades and limited editions.
Raul Marroquin was born in Bogota, Colombia, in 1948 and has lived in the
Netherlands since 1971. He has worked with film, video and photography as
well as installations. He is considered one of the pioneers of video art in
the Netherlands. In the early 70s while been a student at the Jan van Eyck
Academie in Maastricht he published Fandangos, one of the first artists
magazines in the world that included many of the Fluxus and conceptual
artist of that period.
In 1980 he produced a The Link his first, live, satellite, interactive
project connecting Manhattan Cable and Amsterdam cable television.
Since 1991 he has produced the Hoeksteen Live! (radio and television). He

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Technological Visions: Utopian and Dystopian Perspectives

A USC Annenberg Center for Communication convened by the Annenberg Schools
for Communication, University of Southern California and the University of
Pennsylvania

November 6 and 7, 1998
Davidson Conference Center, University of Southern California

Technological Visions: Utopian and Dystopian Perspectives will bring
together journalists, academics, cyberculture advocates, policymakers, and
science fiction visionaries to examine how technologies have been envisioned
throughout history and the social impact of new technologies.  The
conference will explore ways of considering contemporary new technologies in
light of how new technologies were represented and debated in the past. It
intends to address the ahistorical nature of the public discourse of new
technology and to encourage discussion across the boundaries of the social
realms of academic, media, and industry on the impact of new technologies.

Sherry Turkle, Professor of Sociology of Science at MIT and author of Life
on the Screen will give the keynote speech:  Are the discourses surrounding
the Internet a better guide to social action than those formulated in the
early days of "old" technologies?  Have we learned anything from the
successes and failures of past attempts to predict what technology will do
for us and to us?

Panels:

The Problems and Potentials of Prediction
Privacy and Censorship
Communities of Place and Cyberspace
Media Discourse on New Technology
Technological Visions

Confirmed Participants:

John Perry Barlow, Lord Asa Briggs, Richard Chabran, Bob Cringely, Wendy
Grossman, Katie Hafner, Larry Irving, Peter Lyman, Carolyn Marvin, David
Nye, Mitchel Resnick, Romelia Salinas, Vivian Sobchack, Lynn Spigel, Sherry
Turkle, Langdon Winner, Philip Zimmermann

Conference Organizers:  Sandra Ball-Rokeach, Marita Sturken, Douglas Thomas,
Annenberg School for Communication

Conference Information:
The conference is free and open to the public.  It will be held at the
Davidson Conference Center on the USC campus in downtown Los Angeles.  The
conference proceedings will be simulcast on the Metamorphosis web site.

Wand 5 e.V., a non-profit organisation promoting independent film and
media culture, invites artists to present their work on Super 8, 16mm, 35mm,
video, CD-rom, and via internet/www.

Information and entry form  {AT}  http://www.wand5.de

Special recommendation:

State Capital Stuttgart Award for New Media

This award, endowed with DEM 2,000 goes to an independently produced
artistic work on CD-rom or a project in the internet/www.

Further prizes and honorary awards.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

12th Stuttgart Filmwinter:

Short Fiction, Experimental, Documentary, Animation, Video Art,
CD-rom, Internet, Installations, Exhibitions, Expanded Cinema

The Stuttgart Filmwinter is among the outstanding events in the area of
shortfilm and experimental film, as well as new media. In spite of the
very good public response and an opulent framework, the
communication of artists and audience is the most important
intention of the Stuttgart Filmwinter.
Last festival, by awarding for the first time the International
Domnick-Scholarship Award for Experimental Film endowed with
DEM 20,000 (winner: Karl Kels, Frankfurt a.M.) and with a detailed
retrospective of the French artistic film, we demonstrated the vitality
of
the genre of experimental film, whereas in the area of multimedia
with high-quality lectures and presentations we ranged between
game and architecture. At the forthcoming festival we will pick out
as a central theme among others, the direct interactions of the various
media.

In the process we strive - same procedure as every year - for the
realization of our long-standing utopia, to connect theory and
practice, avantgarde and pop, media criticism and media euphoria.

The 12th Stuttgart Filmwinter: four days of successful failure, of
pleasant effort and of the harmonious confrontation on all
axes.
