Subject: Greetings from News & Letters

Dear Comrades,

We recently read with great interest the Inaugaral Manifesto of the Network
of Alternative Resistance, and we would like to estalish email as well as
snail mail communication with you, in order to facilitate an exchange of
views. We are a Marxist-Humanist publication and organization that has long
argued for a unity of theory and practice based on decentralized and
non-vanguardist organizational forms. The Manifesto's discussion of the
one-sidedness of both theoretical and practical work when developed in
isolation is most refreshing, and we look forward to a dialogue on such
issues between us.

In Solidarity,

Peter Hudis

P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center Gallery 205

July 8 and 9, from 2 to 6 PM Hotel New York presents "Nowhere" by The Butoh
Rockettes in collaboration with Entropy Inc.

The Butoh Rockettes are a performance group that incorporates dance, theater
and puppetry into their work to create miniature spectacles. Their work has
been seen at P.S.122, Martha at Mother, Jackie 60 and at various outdoor and
indoor locations throughout New York City including a pier on the Hudson
River, an abandoned factory in Brooklyn and a store window in Manhattan. This
new piece, called "Nowhere" created specifically for Hotel New York,
transforms the room in a dream-like, hallucinatory environment, with costumes
and puppets by Chris Maresca. The performance invites viewers to enter the
hotel room to become a part of the performance/exhibit.

"Nowhere" will be performed by: Celeste Hastings, Patti Bradshaw, Chris
Maresca, Frank Schneider and Britt Whitton.

Hotel New York is an initiative of the Dutch artist Jeanne van Heeswijk,
that marked her participation in the International Studio Program 1998/99
at PS1. Jeanne has passed the torch to Alice Smits to organize Hotel New
York 2000.
Gallery 205 at PS1 is transformed into a replica of a hotelroom of Hotel New
York in Rotterdam, located in the former head office of the Holland-America
line. With Hotel New York PS1 a cultural line to New York is created. Hotel
New York functions as a working and showing space for artists, performers,
filmmakers, and musicians. During the year Alice Smits will invite guests to
stay, work and present projects to the public. As a hotelroom, Hotel New York
echoes the history of travel and thus reflects the migration and nomadic
movements of the contemporary art world. Hotel New York is a space for live
events focusing on artists projects that emphasis interdisciplinarity and
public interaction. In the intimate situation of a living space, Hotel New
York offers an interesting context for making and presenting such projects
within the contemporary art museum

CFP:*Stoking the Fires: Queer Post-Colonialities*

We are soliciting contributions for a collection of essays, provisionally
titled, Stoking the Fires: Queer Post-Colonialities, that will contribute to
the emerging body of work on the intersections of queer studies and
postcolonial theory.  Our work is concerned with the tensions between the
materiality of the historical and the politics of the geographical.  The
essays we have in mind would attend to such critical issues as the rapid
expansion of queer movements in the post-colonies; the theoretical liaisons
among diaspora studies, queer studies and studies of globalization.  We are
interested in essays that focus on local sites and interrogate the very
production of what we consider "post-colonial" and "queer."

DANIEL PFLUMM: 14 - 30 July, 2000

Daniel Pflumn is renowned for his frenetic video installations
featuring an endless stream of corporate logos: in rapid succession,
the logo’s flutter into view to form a mesmerising montage. DJ and
one-time founder of the Berlin night-club Panasonic, Pflumn presents a
Kotai+Moi..  Join the artist for an informal talk in the gallery on 22
July.  Pflumm works closely with Galerie Neu in Berlin, whose image
and branding he continues to design. Recent solo shows include
Kunstverein Frankfurt, Green Naftali, New York, and Asprey-Jacques,
London. Plumm will also be exhibiting at Emily Tsingou Gallery,
London, in January 2001.  With thanks to the Goethe Institute London.

*Introduction to My Work*
4 August - 3 September, 2000

"Hello, my name is Peter Land. I’m an artist from Denmark… Originally, I
wanted to be a painter. At some point while in art school I started to pose
questions as to why I did these paintings.  And all of a sudden it didn’t
make sense anymore. I abandoned painting and started making video instead…"

After last summer’s delirious screenings of drug-related films by Carsten
Holler, the Lux invites Danish artist Peter Land to present ‘Introduction to
my Work’. Slapstick and often bizarre, the world of Peter Land is filed with
extraordinary Sisyphian tasks and absurdist images, as the artist falls time
and time again from bar stools and step ladders, or looses himself in the
company strippers.  ‘Introduction to my Work’  includes early gems such as
‘d. 6 Februar’ (1994) and ‘Pink Space’ (1995), as well as recent works -
as yet unseen in the UK – including ‘The Cellist’ (1998) and ‘The
Staircase’ (1998). The compilation also features ‘The Lake’ where the
artist is spied walking through woodlands sporting Bavarian tweeds and a
shot-gun. The rest is history… Land graduated from Goldsmith’s college in
1995 and exhibited extensively throughout Europe and America. Recent
solo-shows include Galleri Nicolai Wallner, Copenhagen, Klosterfelde Gallery,
Berlin, Grunert/Gasser, New York and Museum of Modern Art Chicago.

Subject: * World of Awe 1.0 Launched *

[Pardon for cross-posting]
CONTACT: Yael Kanarek


New York, NY, July 11, 2000 -- Treasurecrumbs is proud to announce the latest
release of "World of Awe" by media artist Yael Kanarek. The website is an
online narrative that uses the ancient genre of the traveler's tale to
explore the connections between narrative, memory & technology.

A treasure hunt takes place in a desert terrain called the sunset/sunrise,
where the determination to find the lost treasure meets nostalgia for
speculated technology and longing for a loved one left behind. Treasure
crumbs found in excavation sites, oddly, resemble candy sprinkles. Written in
the literary style of magical realism, "World of Awe" contains a collection
of love letters that open from digital landscapes and journal entries that
describe events from the expedition. Also included are detailed technical
descriptions of three navigation tools: The map, the moodRingBaby and the
magnifying glass.

"I'm constantly drawn to the intimate 'loving' aspect of working in the
digital environments where narrative and code become one.  Where code and
binaries expand the non-verbal experience of the narrative," says Ms.

Visitors to "World of Awe" are greeted with the sound of hollowing wind and
an invitation to enter an interface that appears like an awkward application,
which claims to mirror the content stored on the laptop used by the traveler.

"I printed the output and wrote your name on the back then folded it into a
tiny ball and left it on the motherboard next to me. I sat there for a
while...just sat there...mind wandering, gazing into nowhere. A dung beetle
climbed on the motherboard. It approached my letter, sniffed my little love
ball then got on its forelegs and rolled it away off the motherboard and
under an old Pentium 7 Gateway 2300 PC (I recognized it by the udder on its
case). I reached out to my backpack pulling out a few strips of dodo jerky
and crackers for dinner. A quiet thought was wondering how long it would take
for my message to arrive at its destination." --excerpt from the chapter
Silicon Canyon.

"World of Awe" is a production of Treasurecrumbs, conceived and developed by
Yael Kanarek. DHTML & Perl programming by Luis Perez. Sound design by Raw
Dog. Edited by Rebecca Turner. "World of Awe" has been in development since
1995. A previous version of the site is archived on the SFMOMA website. An
"Art Dirt" online interview/performance is accessible through the Walker Art
Center website. "World of Awe" is hosted by RSUB-The Razorfish Subnetwork and
is a participant in FILE, International Electronic Language Festival in Såo
Paulo, Brazil in August.

Visit "World of Awe" on the web at  The site is
accessible through any 4.X web browser and requires a Flash plugin. Contact

Subject: CyberPoiesis Research Project

The CyberPoiesis project seeks to explore scientifically what media-based
processes and interactivity in the Net are about. In contrast to previous
studies on the use of the Net, the focus has been shifted and expanded here.
In the past few years, research concentrated on the investigation of
quantitative data concerning online time and modalities, the issue of the
Internet substituting classic mass media, as well as negative aspects, e.g.
Internet addiction, the need for information diets and censorship mechanisms
(right-wing radicalism, child pornography). By contrast, the CyberPoiesis
project is neither of the quantifying and essentialistic kind nor concerned
with a critique of culture and a pessimistic attitude: it focuses on the
cognitive transformation (of perception, imagination and identity) caused by
communication on the Net and the changed modes of social self-organisation in
virtual communities. This first part of empirical research concerning the Net
will be completed at the end of the year 2000.

The Second Research Focus

The second part of research will look into the possibilities and conditions
of relations in time and space within the sphere of networked electronic
media.  Against the backdrop of existing results of empirical research, this
will mainly be about ? the qualitative dimensions of social options of
information, communication and action in artificial spaces; ? selected
projects involving the artistic design and animation of artificial spaces and
? independent, quasi-ethnic cultural developments.  The second stage of
research will be completed in mid-2001.

The Central Questions

? How can media science actually 'grasp' an 'object area' of constant
transformation, acceleration and technical innovation such as net-based
media?  ? Are there any theories and models concerning the evolution and
emergence of new media in general and Net media in particular?  ? What are
the contributions of (Radical) Constructivism, (autopoietic) systems theory,
(second- and third-order) cybernetics and memetics to the observation of the
Net media evolution?  ? What are the empirical methods and processes
specially suited for the observation of Net use?  ? How does Net use change
the cognitive construction of views of the world, content of perception and
imagination?  ? What are the new communication styles and forms created by
communication on the Net?  ? What is the relation of text-based and
image-based communication on the Net?  ? How do social structures, contexts,
communities and the (world) society change due to Net communication?  ? What
are the social semantics that turn out to be plausible in the age of Net

Theoretical Evolution

The CyberPoiesis project seeks to test advanced anti-realistic and
observer-centred theories such as Radical Constructivism, autopoietic systems
theory and second-order cybernetics for its suitability (and the degree to
which they can be used empirically) for the observation of Net communication.
Concerning theoretical assumptions, research focuses on the following issues:
» How do micro level (the cognitive construction of reality = constructivism)
and macro level (the social construction of reality = systems theory) relate?
» How can all levels, from micro level to macro level (individual use of the
Net, use routines and habits, net structures, political, economic, technical
and legal framework conditions)be observed in a meaningful way within an
integrative theory architecture?  » How can systems theory be extended by an
additional perspective, the dialectic of system and network (V. Grassmuck)?
» How can second-order cybernetics be operationalised as a general theory of
media observation?

The Methods

The CyberPoesis project is breaking new ground in terms of research methods
as it waives the angle of the external scientific observer in the first
research focus: CyberPoiesis is a project about the Net and (almost
exclusively) on the Net. Empirically speaking, CyberPoiesis is thus an
attempt at carrying out an entirely new form of Internet survey. In the
second part of research, analyses of literature, qualitative interviews and
the presentation and discussion of artistic projects in terms of media
analysis will be in the foreground.

Final Evaluation

Before the process is completed we are planning to invite five authors from
among all those who actively participated to comment on five theses resulting
from the research process. Moreover, we are planning to publish the overall
results in a book in the spring of 2002.

THE BAY AREA AWARD SHOW 2000:  July 12 - September 9, 2000
Opening Reception July 13, 6 - 8 pm

VISUAL ART:  Leona Christie, Frederick Hayes, and Jon-Paul Villegas

NET ART:  Steev Hise and Masako Odaka	


San Francisco - New Langton Arts announces the recipients of The Bay Area
Award Show 2000. Langton's walls pop with color, texture, and raw emotion
when visual arts awardees Leona Christie, Frederick Hayes, and Jon-Paul
Villegas take over the gallery. NetWork awardees Steev Hise and Masako Odaka
evoke democratic freedom and subvert the eCommerce paradigm in their Internet
based projects. Musée artist Hilary Chartrand turns scraps of commercially
printed products into landscapes of color and pattern.

In its seventh year, The Award Show embodies the spirit of exploration on
which this artist space was founded nearly 25 years ago. Langton's curators
turn a focused eye toward local art makers, performers, and writers, and give
audiences a chance to sample a selection of the innovation taking place
locally. New Langton Arts is located at 1246 Folsom Street. Gallery hours are
12 - 5, Wednesday through Saturday.  Admission is free. Call 415 626 5416 for

IN THE GALLERY Oakland artist Leona Christie draws ethereal worlds that
vacillate between fantasy and industry, innocence and corruption, Ziegfield
follies and organic abstraction. Monochromatic skyscapes and transparent
heroines from her on-going series The Helium Wars fill a wall and bubble
over, spilling onto the gallery floor.

Quietly staring out from a field of white paper Frederick Hayes' characters
speak volumes. The passionately rendered charcoal portraits are moments we've
experienced, emotions we've felt, people we've passed by on the street. For
The Award Show Hayes creates life-sized drawings of six characters from the
modern metropolis.

In Jon-Paul Villegas' installations chewing gum, fake flowers, and faux wood
paneling implicate each other in mysterious, open-ended narratives.  He
carefully alters and arranges found objects into sculptures and installations
that behave like paintings on a wall. 

ONLINE at Steev Hise's project, Detritus Sound
Consensus Bakery (2000) netcasts an algorithmically generated sound collage
24 hours a day. Listeners use a web interface to set a variety of sonic
variables drawing from a database of sound samples.  Listeners' input is
statistically averaged and processed into a new 'democratic' stream of sound.  

Masako Odaka's project Pinion (2000), invites the user to modify existing web
pages then uploads them to free servers all over the world, creating
information noise or echo. The title, which means to restrain a bird from
flight by cutting or binding its wings, refers to users ability to separate
the "pinioned" web sites from their intended location and purpose. 

MUSEE D'HONNEUR MINUSCULE A stack of envelopes becomes a mesmerizing
composition of lines and folds when put in the hands of SF artist Hilary
Chartrand. She turns common, commercially printed products into elegant,
painterly objects, asking the viewer to find beauty in the mundane. 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS Leona Christie received her MFA from the University of
Washington, Seattle. She has had solo exhibitions at Southern Exposure, SF
(1999) and Prince Fine Art, New York (1998), and has been included in
