**********************************************
ISEA invites you to get in step to the beat of CyberAfrica!
**********************************************


DAKAR WEB
1-24 February, 1999
Dakar, Sngal

In order to stimulate francophone and African Internet art, the
Inter-society for the Electronic Arts (ISEA) will be offering web creation
workshops to over 20 artists in Dakar during the month of February. 

The Internet training and web design workshops, which will be held at
Metissacana, the first Internet caf in West Africa, target professional
Senegalese artists working in various disciplines (sound, visual arts and
literature). Apart from the creation of original material for the web, the
workshops aim to outfit each artist with the skills necessary to access
new modes of expression and communication, all while providing
international exposure. 

The workshop content could be informed both by the contemporary expriences
of the artists as well as by the rich cultural heritage of the region -for
instance, that which is embodied in the oral tradition, stories, and
legends. Another goal of the project is to encourage net-art projects and
"cyber-collaboration" between artists in Dakar and around the world. 

The workshops will be led by 3 Montralers: Eva Quintas, who intiated the
project for ISEA, as well as Michel Lefebvre and Catherine McGovern, both
of whom are active in developing cultural content for the Internet. 

Visit the ISEA web site to follow the activities in Dakar and participate
in the SOUK, an open zone on the website where you can send your texts,
images, ideas and comments. SOUK is the term for 'market', an active and
colourful public sphere in many African societies. In the spirit of the
SOUK, we invite you to communicate and collaborate with artists in Senegal
and around the world! 

Join CyberAfrica by pointing your browser to: http:www.isea.qc.ca/africa

Dakar Web is made possible by the kind financial support of l'Agence de la
francophonie and the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The workshops
are produced with the colloboration of Metissacana Internet caf, the
Biennale de Dakar, the Canadian Embassy in Senegal, and Aziz Abdoul Sall.

visionplus7 - information design conference

diversification of minds - conversation in processes 
design for communities 

Tokyo, 06.10 - 10.10 1999 

The international visionplus series of conferences was initialized by the
international institute for information design, IIID in vienna, austria
1995. The goal of visionplus is to create awareness about the general
needs of information design within the rapid development of information-
and communication technologies. 

visionplus7 will be the first international conference of its kind to take
place in japan. 

A selection of internationally renowned presenters together with top
experts of related fields from japan should provide a remarkable input
into current plannig of educational curricula as well as projects of
public communication. Under the heading <design for communities> the
presentations of visionplus7 will focus on new concepts of information
generation, processing and delivering as needed for successful
communication within communities of local and global scales. 

visionplus7 is adressing itself to experts in design, information
technology, communication, corporate planning and education of government
bodies, public institutions and industries. 

For the first two days of the visionplus7 event we are inviting
internationally recognized experts of Information Management, Information
Design, and Information Interfaces to conduct small group working
seminars. At the time of writing, IDEO Product Development and MetaDesign
have assured us of their readiness to act as seminar managers. 

The proposed program is the preliminary result of several restatements of
proposals for a virtual program within the visionplus7 preparatory
committee. Everybody was asked to submit not only a title and summary but
also a fictitious biography of the speaker for each program suggestion. 

Please let us know your opinion! This will be a valuable input for further
planning.

13 Feb 99 (f)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----
The Museum of the 21st Century:
Archiving and Conservation of Networked Media

a Lingo day seminar on Saturday 13 February 1999, 12am to 6pm at the ICA,
London
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------


Lingo is a new digital media discussion series which takes its cue from
many of the issues raised during the popular Cached talks at the ICA (see
the Cached archive site at http://channel.artec.org.uk/cached).  Whilst
Cached investigated the production of art and digital media, and the
nature of products dedicated exclusively to the net, Lingo aims to
interrogate some of the deeper underlying issues.  Future Lingo events
will examine media convergence, political activism, music online and
network architectures. 

The Museum of the Twenty First Century will explore the problems raised by
the production, conservation and collection of art projects on-line.  In
the context of constant upgrades, when browsers and processors are
improved on an almost monthly basis and when bandwidth increases in an
exponential manner, the realm in which projects are produced is
ever-changing creating a situation of instability which jeopardises the
collection and conservation of art online.  As an artist what are the
issues you have to consider in producing work that aspires to live beyond
the moment?  As a collector how could you preserve an artwork based on
transient technology? As a curator what are the best approaches to
presenting unstable media? 

The seminar brings together leading media curators and artists from the UK
, Europe and North America to tackle the key issues raised by The Museum
of the Twenty First Century.  Participants for the day will include: 

- Steven Bury, a researcher and archivist at the London Institute - Vuk
Cosic, artist and web archaeologist from Lublijana, Slovenia - Alain
Depocas, a researcher and archivist at the Musee d'Art Contemporain,
Montreal - Steve Dietz, the Director of New Media Initiatives at the
Walker Art Center, Minneapolis - Ursula Frohne, Curator at the Zentrum fur
Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM), Karlsruhe - Simon Lamuniere, Curator at
SGG Centre pour l'Image Contemporaine, Geneva - Vivian Selbo, artist and
information architect from New York - Neil Cummings, an artist and curator
based in London

Information about the Lingo series can be found at
http:channel.artec.org.uk/lingo and an online extension of The Museum of
the Twenty First Century will be constructed in collaboration with the
Transmediale international media art festival in Berlin at
http://www.transmediale.de.

The Museum of the Twenty First Century will be held on Saturday 13
February
from 12am to 6pm at the ICA, London.  Tickets for the day cost gbp 20 for
non-ICA  members / 16 for concessions / 14 for ICA  members and can be
booked via the ICA box office on +44 (0)171 930 3647.

Lingo is a collaboration between Artec, the ICA Education and New Media
Departments and the London Institute.

CENTRE FOR HUMAN-WOMEN'S RIGHTS "ELENA", Prishtina, Kosova, dealing
with the protection of human rights, of women's in particular, worried
about
the continuation:

- Of drastic violation of human rights and freedom in Kosova.

- Of crimes against humanity and international right in Kosova.

- Of killings and massacres against Albanian civilian population in Kosova
(massacres in Prekaz, Likoshan, Abri, Reak )

- Of the civilian population violently expulsion from their hometowns,
as a consequence of state terror.

- Of the destruction of dwelling objects and other material goods of
Albanian civilian population in Kosova.

- Of the aggravation of the material condition and the lack of food, and
other basic things for normal life of the IDP's in Kosova.

- Of the violation of state terror that results with all forms of
victimization of Albanian civilian population in Kosova , with
consequences 
of physical, psychological, social and economical nature, we:


                                    APPEAL


-That UN, SC, OSCE, USA, EC and other relevant international institution
should obligate the ending of war in Kosova, and should take further steps
in
protecting civilian population.

- International Hague Tribunal to take actions in order to investigate the
crimes against humanity in Kosova, and to sentence the criminals.


- International Humanitarian Organizations to increase their interest and
to
offer an aid to the civilian population in Kosova.


Remaining deeply worried about the continuation of killings and the
destruction of the civilian population in Kosova, we appeal for an urgent, 
obligate action of the International Factor in Kosova.
