> CALL FOR PROJECTS
>
> The annual Medi {AT} terra Festival is changing form. Under the title
> De-Globalizing / Re-Globalizing, the Festival is travelling from the South
> to the North in the form of a microMuseum.
>
> Medi {AT} terra, having developed an intense activity around the questions
posed
> by digital culture, has been included among the events which are organised
> on the opportunity of the Olympic Games of 2004 in Athens. Its inclusion
in
> the Cultural Olympiad for the years 2001 - 2004 has recently been
announced.
>
> Medi {AT} terra supports and puts into practice the view of a continuously
> evolving festival, both in terms of its form and ideas. As such, it
invites
> all those with an interest in research and experimentation around the new
> conditions that are now being shaped to take part in its new effort: a
> moving Festival that will start off from Greece, travel through the
Balkans
> and end up in Germany.
> This movement will be made through a microMuseum: a small, adaptable
> structure which, making use of new technology, can contain a large number
of
> works of art, views, proposals and presentations, as well as systems and
> friendly areas for communication and meetings. The works that will travel
> with the microMuseum are ones which experiment with the new platforms for
> the production and exhibition of the modern art work through different
> creative media. The microMuseum is based on the logic of the kiosk that
one
> finds mainly in Greece (peripteron), with a reference at the same time to
> the concept of the 'small museum,' an idea which began in the 16th century
> and continues among today's artists.
>
> In each host city, the events of Medi {AT} terra will be set up within and
around
> the microMuseum: CD-ROM art, net art, computer art, digital photography,
> interactive objects and "hand luggage-sized" installations, sound
> environments and electronic music, screenings, an archive with printed
> matter, texts in digital form, audio-visual propositions and presentations
> as well as cultural events organised by the artists and art centres of
each
> city. A debate on the subject of the other side of globalisation will
round
> off the activities of the Festival.
>
> An art centre in each city-stop will undertake the setting up and
> realisation of the microMuseum in collaboration with its various
associates,
> and will participate as a co-organiser in the preparations and making of
> decisions. In addition, each centre will be able to take part in
> Medi {AT} terra's journey as a member of the "Observing Cities' Net" via the
> Internet. Through the Internet it will be possible to follow the path of
the
> microMuseum and participate in its events from a distance, from every
point
> on the globe. The "Observing Cities' Net" is initiated by the network of
> centres which co-organise the festival, while all the members of the
network
> can observe, guide, disseminate information and participate with work and
> activities in the unfolding events of the journey.
>
> The microMuseum will start from the city of Lavrion, famous from the
> antiquity for its silver-mines that have supported the Hellenic Democracy
of
> the Golden Age, whilst in the 19th century the first industrial unit was
> created there. Today, this unit has been turned into a technological park
> and the Municipality is participating in a programme for the "smart city."
>
> Medi {AT} terra will continue its journey through the cities of Sofia & Plovdiv
> (Bulgaria), Maribor (Slovenia), ending up at the International Book Fair
in
> Frankfurt where the honoured country this year is Greece. Here, the
> microMuseum will present, along with all the things experienced on the
> journey, material with information (videos, photographs, texts, etc.)
which
> artists will have produced throughout the duration of the journey.
