De-Globalizing / Re-Globalizing



14 September - 15 October 2001
Lavrion-Athens >> Sofia >> Belgrade >> Maribor >> Frankfurt




Medi {AT} terra Festival is among the cultural events which are organised in
the context of the Olympic Games of 2004 in Athens



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 “Pilot Operating 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 “Pilot Operating 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.
