Subject: 'open_digi' latino London night blown out > POSTPONED

Hi nettime-l people,

open_digi latino digital night out planned for June 19th is having to be postponed because the venue management blew us out yesterday. They have given two reasons.

the venue manager objected to the flyers and posters being in Spanish. Apparently they don't have or want any customers who understand even a little bit of spanish, thus ignoring in particular the sizeable Columbian population in the area.

the venue manager is not happy to allow Mike Slocombe of the Brixton website to appear as a guest of open_digi as planned for July date because of criticism and discussion regarding the door policy of the venue and other matters posted on the bulletin boards of Mike's site. This is despite us posting a defence of their door policies etc yesterday to the boards, something they have failed to do for themselves for some unknown reason.

you can read more about and local and other reaction to this news at

we will revert to Plan A, an alternative non-commercial venue in the Brixton area, the original intended venue of open_digi. Hopefully we can get the necessary space sorted and equipment together so as to finally have our latino digital outing approximately one week after the original date. Quite likely we have a better and more interesting and enjoyable time as a result. Anybody who has time, resources or skills such as cheap as possible projector loan, sound gear, lighting, plumbing etc etc that we will need to prepare this venue please mail

apologies for any incisiveness but ...

we will keep you informed of further developments

all the best

Subject: Announcement of "Blurting in A & L online"

Introduction to the Website
Blurting In A & L online

The website of Art & Language within the website of ZKM (Zentrum für
Kunst und Medientechnologie, Karlsruhe, presents the
lexicon "Blurting in A & L" (1973) in an online version
( because a translation into hypertext is
feasible: Michael Corris and Mel Ramsden noted connections between 408
entries/annotations/blurts by other American members of Art & Language
as well as themselves. The connections can now be presented as links
between different webpages.
The website includes articles which contextualize "Blurting in A & L"
within the activities of the group in the seventies. Present and former
members of Art & Language (Michael Baldwin, Michael Corris, Philip
Pilkington, Mel Ramsden) summarize and reflect on their activities.
Thomas Dreher embeds "Blurting in A & L" within the proceedings of the
discourse of Art & Language.
Around 1972, the group had fully recognized a need for a criticism of
their own theoretical foundations. Using the philosophy of science
(Popper, Lakatos, Feyerabend, Kuhn, among others) as methodological
signposts, the members of Art & Language inaugurated a criticism of the
art world and tools for a self- contextualization within the ensuing
problem field. The entries/annotations/blurts in "Blurting in A & L"
reflect the discussions at this particular stage.  "Blurting in A & L"
was followed by discussions focussed on sociological theories, which
helped to contextualize the problems of the institutions of art
(museums) and the art market (galleries) within the wider social field
of the postmaterial forms of bureaucratization. These debates were
accompanied in 1975/76 by efforts to embody the basics of the critique
of bureaucratization in a subsystem of slogans as a way of reaching a
wider public without loss of reflectivity.
A discussion forum starts the debate with seven questions concerning the
actuality of the discourse of Art & Language within contemporary art
activities. Former and present members of Art & Language will begin with
the discussion, and then every user is invited to participate. The
online discussion forum realizes an intention of the members of Art &
Language: it opens the internal discussions for interactions with
external users.
Each page within the website "Blurting in A & L online" allows
spontaneous entries into an accumulative forum, which adds every new
entry to older entries. The accumulative forum seeks to provoke
inscriptions regardless of thematic limits, while it is hoped that the
discussion forum will be based on themes - with the questions as
reference points - and guided by reflective reactions to the
contributions of others. The accumulative forum allows the filling in of
signs regardless of their meanings and, indeed, for the sake of
increasing the number of signs or the accumulated length of entries. The
discussion forum can lead to similar accumulations, but it will allow
restarts on a dialogical and discoursive level: this is an experiment.
The discussions concerning relations between signs and meanings helped
members of Art & Language to problematize the functions of propaganda
and sloganizing in a way which anticipated - parallel to a French
discourse (Barthes, Foucault, Baudrillard, Derrida, Lyotard) – the
debates of the eighties on postmodernism, which re-constructed and
de-constructed authority built into the processes by which sign-meaning
correlations are conventionalized and institutionalized. The answer of
Art & Language was and is that a constant dialogical and discoursive
process of de-construction and re-construction of the wider context
(social relations) of their own activities (art) is unavoidable. The
website presents not only traces of this process between members of Art
& Language: it offers all users a forum for proceeding within a
"theoretical practice" (Althusser) based on dialogue.

Norman White

Year Zero One is pleased to present the source code for Norman White's
interactive robotic project, The Helpless Robot.

The Helpless Robot is an artificial personality that responds to the
behavior of humans by using its electronic voice which speaks a total of
512 phrases. The speech that is delivered depends on its present and
past experience of "emotions" ranging from boredom, frustration,
arrogance,and overstimulation.

Since 1987 The Helpless Robot has been exhibited in numerous galleries
both in Canada and internationally. By sharing and publishing The
Helpless Robot source code, Norman White invites fellow creative
individuals to collaborate on a software project aimed at: >> creating
more powerful and varied simulations of an emotional entity. >>
translating the code into Java or another web language, so as to create
a net-based version of The Helpless Robot.

YEAR ZERO ONE is an on-line artist run centre which operates as a
network for the dissemination of digital culture and new media through
web based exhibitions, an extensive media arts directory,  and the
YEAR01 Forum - an electronic art journal.
