on "Art.Bit Collection"

In the art world, a work of art is called an "art piece." The word "
piece" designates a thing that actually exists, but since software
creations exist only as binary data, calling them an "art piece" doesn't
suit well. Substituting "bit" for "piece," we have decided to call such
a work an "art bit."

In the case of software, which is used as a medium, material, tool,
and environment for art, it is necessary to know the conditions of the
"art bit"; under the present circumstances, however, when the market is
glutted with high-performance application software, it is becoming
increasingly difficult to stretch the individual's imaginative powers.
Some people have even become convinced that no new software is needed
beyond what already exists. Software ought not to be simply a tool that
allows us to imitate actual operations and rationalize routine work. We
must delve down and discover new possibilities that are latent in
software and experiment with them through trial and error as "art bits."

The "Art.Bit Collection" exhibit brings together and displays works that
explore software possibilities in this sense -- programming language
(especially visual programming language and language environment
software for computer music), network community (software available on
the Internet for creating and exhibiting artwork), software for visualization
vfor the World Wide Web, new application software, and interactive works.
Although we cannot perhaps say that these art bits have as yet evolved
into major works in this sense, we can say that each of them contains a
"bit of art" that shows extraordinary creativity.

Subject: Break21 - 6. International Festival of Young Emerging Artists

18 June – 7 July 2002
6. International Festival of Young Emerging Artists

On June, 18th, the 6th International Festival of Young Emerging Artists,
BREAK21 will start with the intense program, which will shake the public.
During its three weeks (until July 7) Zavod K6/4 (Kapelica Gallery, Club K4,
Cyberpipe) in Ljubljana (Slovenia) will be venue, where over 100 contemporary
works of art by artists from throughout the world will be presented. All these
projects address the topic of the festival – “Dead or Alive” in direct and
radical way.

In the title, the initial question appears. It questions death and life; it
demands an answer to the question about definitions, what is actually dead and
what is alive. To what extent something is dead, though only inert; to what
extent something is alive, though tends to be prolonged with the help of
machines; how to understand organic material in the cryobanks and how
biotechnical mechanisms/organisms? Are the cyber space and avatars with
artificial intelligence, which are present in the Hollywood apparatus of the
imaginary or the top cyber laboratories, our or the parallel world?

Interconnecting sides of reality – death and life will be manifested through
exhibitions, net art, performances, fashion as well as comics, short and
animated films. Theoretical background to the festival’s topic – “Dead or
Alive” will be given at the symposium. The exhibited projects are divided into
three thematic sets: the dark side ‘dead’ will be presented in the first
the second week will try to find balance around the delicate ‘or’ and the
week will inevitably come ‘alive’.

Besides younger, not yet recognised artists who modulate their artistic
expression within research artistic practice, we have invited authors, whose
known works may add up to the entire exhibition. These projects are in our
opinion, important for the discourse, pursued by the festival. At the end of
the festival we will publish a book, which will consist of texts and artistic
projects, presented at the Break 21, and projects, which influenced the
development of the selected theme greatly, for which we would like to become
the reference in the future.


Among the invited artists, Franko B. (GB) will certainly attract the most attention. He is already an internationally acclaimed visual artist living in Great Britain, whose performances are usually sold out well in advance. The psychoanalytic theory would characterise him as an ultimate painter while he himself claims that he does not deal with death in his 'blood letting' performances, but with a thin line between the concepts of life and real experience. He exposes his naked and bleeding body which forces the audience to rethink their own ideas of beauty and suffering and the connections between the two.

On the Festival he will present his ultimate performance, a fashion show in which he will mark the way with his own blood on a white path. This performance will present a unique contribution to Slovenian reality. During the symposium Aljoša Kolenc, who compares Franko B.'s work to the once revolutionary Cezanne, will attempt to interpret his performances within the frames of  psychoanalytic hermeneutics.

Body as an instrument of artistic expression is also used by Dietmar Bruckmayr-Didi (AT). He will open the Break21 Festival on June 18 with a vocal performance "Aria of the lost genes". All he needs to perform his act is a microphone, which he holds in his mouth and makes sound by hitting his body and head. The author treats his body in a very suicidal fashion. 

Besides Franko B, and Didi there are some other interesting performers invited as well as selected:

invited: Niko Raes (BE), Kira O'Reilly (GB), Havve Fjell (NO), Elena Kovylina (UA).
selected: Boris Šincek (HR), Marijan Crtalić (HR).

EXHIBITION in Kapelica Gallery will be open from June, 18th until July, 7th every day between 12.00 and 20.00 hours during the festival.

A renowned Slovenian artist Franc Purg, currently working in New York, will present his recently finished video for the first time, as a part of the exhibition.  
His 30 minutes long video film presents a story of the 20 year old Leon, a Macedonian born in Slovenia, whose life was forever marked when he killed his father at the age of 12. His life that culminated in this tragic event is unique, because of his forced pilgrimage through many reformatories and similar institutions throughout ex-Yugoslavia and his perseverance, which helped him walk the way from Bosnia to Slovenia several times as well as his frankness in telling his brutal story.

Fred Pelon is a Dutch artist known mainly due to his technique of recording, projecting and additional recording. He will show his experimental and autobiographic documentary "The Dutch Act", where he explores the world of suicides and practical use of chat on internet to communicate about them. 

Invited: Franc Purg (SI), Stephen J. Shanabrook (US), Talent (YU), Zoran Todorović (YU), Charles Krafft (US), Davide Grassi (SI), Bureau of Inverse Technology (US)

Selected: Andreas Troeger (US), Petra Vargova (CZ), Vukašin Nedeljković (YU), Danko Friščić (HR), Fred Pelon (NL), Slavica Peševska (MK/SI), Sašo Sedlaček (SI), Bojana Romić (YU), Mario Horvat (HR), STRUP production (SI), Emir Jelkić (SI), Polona Demšar (SI), I. J. Pino (HR), Christopher Morris (GB), Jelena Radić (YU), Christian de Lutz (US/DE), Ljubica Andjelković (HR), Liane Lang (UK), Emir Jelkić (SI), Martin Sastre (UY), Mario Mišković (HR), Christian Keinstar (DE), Philip John (GB)

Net art will be presented on Cyberpipe computers during all three weeks of the festival between 12.00 and 20.00 hours. 
Web art consists of works made and transmitted with net based technologies. They are accessible through the Internet, but lose their main characteristics and can only be documented, when transferred into another medium.

This year Break21 presents Jimpunk visiting an almost 13 years old girl Mouchette. The visit takes place in the morgue as Mouchette decided to commit suicide as the answer to her life's problems. Her identity lives on though through an unknown French artist - Mouchette whom we will visit in her afterlife. Innergirl presents her Suicide Journal, while Melinda Rackham thematizes Hepathitis C in her work Carrier.



You will be able to listen to a series of lectures and presentations in the Cyberpipe lecture room (their texts will be published in the catalogue) in the beginning of the Festival (19, 20 and 21 June at 18.00, 19.00 and 20.00 hours). The symposium will be dedicated to some extreme areas of artistic expression exposing the question of life and death as well as contents and materials through which they are expressed. Our point of interest will be the artistic poetics and also practical problems that occur while dealing with such complex and usually taboo theme. Some invited lecturers don't have an artistic background but are exposed to the subject of life and death in different scientific fields and therefore
often represent inspiration for works of art. Together we will discuss the question if art has the privilege of enlightening and reflecting upon such delicate themes and contents. 

Oron Catts (AU) is a member of the SymbioticA group within which he, as artist, collaborates in the scientific processes. SymbioticA is a research laboratory dedicated to the exploration of scientific knowledge in general, and biological technologies in particular, from an artistic and humanistic perspective. It is located in The Department of Anatomy & Human Biology at The University of Western Australia. SymbioticA is the first research laboratory of its kind, in that it enables artists to engage in wet biology practices in a biological science department. Developments in science and technology, in particular in the life sciences, are having a profound effect on society, its values, belief systems and
treatment of individuals, groups and the environment. Oron will present their last project - the creation of wings for a pig under lab conditions.

Other lecturers who will present their views and thoughts on the symposium include Barbara Borčič (SI), Andrej Marušič (SI), Adrian Heathfield (GB), Aljoša Kolenc (SI), Stuart Swezey (US), John Duncan (US), Rachel Armstrong (GB). 


In the newly discovered exhibition area of the Kapelica Gallery - roof - fashion designers will present their dress concepts on 27 June at 21.00 hours. Fashion show will be an event that exposes clothes worn by newborns, dead, warriors, suicides, fetishists and clothes that protect us during crrying out the tasks of life performance. These are clothes that aim at the sublime beauty, although we would rather never wear them.

Invited: Stahl Stenslie (NO), Denise Kaelin (CH)
Selected: Jasminka Končić (HR), Anita Mudronja (HR), Ivana Žanko (HR), Irena Funduk (SI), Ana Hribernik (SI)


During all three weeks of the festival the Kinoteka, Kolosej and Cyberpipe cinema room will show screenings and  rescreening of short video and animated films.
Eight international animated films that deal with the edges of death and life in purely individual ways and use experimental approaches while telling their stories have been chosen. For the first time on the big screen it will also be possible to see professional short films, half an hour of concentrated storyline that break the viewer's conception of 

Short films: David Brooks (US), Fariborz Kamkari (IR), Boris Hars-Tschachotin (DE), Jorg Wagner & Stefan Prehn (DE), Marianela Maldondo (GB/NO), Alain Escalle (FR/JP), Kenneth Kainz (DK), Virgil Widrich (AT)
Animated films: Rene Castillo (MX), Sally Golding (AU), Neels Britz (ZA), Jo Goigne (BE), Bruno Razum (HR), Igor Lazin & Bense Sandor (HU), Balasz Pal (HU), Martha Colburn (NL/US) 


Comics have traditionally been the arena of the worst possible violence. Their black-and-white images cut into the limits of our perception which are struggling with the cold reality. Some situations caught in ink stare at us like frozen screams of horror, others show those few seconds when the Earth is still approaching.

Selected: Ivana Armanini (HR), Beppi & Mary Knott (US), Frederique Cabaille (BE), Goran Cvek & Emil Jurcan (SI), Andreja Kladnik (SI), Dragomir Križić (BA), Miroslav Lazendić (YU), Miroslav Nemeth (HR), Ivan Mitrevski (SI), Dalibor Rajninger (HU), Zoran Stojilković (YU), Rui Sanguinho (PT), Willem Verburg (NL)

Initiatives such as internment of displaced people, use of vouchers,
displacement once in host countries and also economic migrancy have
featured in the media over the last year. This day of broadcasts
from Sound
Radio will attempt to tell the human story of refugee communities,
reasons for moving, and their experiences once here as well as how
they feel
about their treatment.

The programmes will be broadcast over the Internet, via The CMA's

Subject: [transmediale] transmediale.03 - play global! - Call for proposals (English version)

international media art festival berlin
1 - 5 February 2003

Call for Entries

Entry form: PDF download from
Deadline: 8 September 2002

Klosterstraße 68-70 \ 10179 Berlin \ Germany

transmediale is a festival for art and the creative usage of digital media.
The festival shows new and significant projects of digital culture and
offer reflections about the role of digital technologies in contemporary
society. It is a forum of communication for artists, media workers and a
broad public interested in the arts.

transmediale award

Prizes worth EUR 5,000 will be awarded in each of the three categories
Interaction, Image and Software. The transmediale.03 invites the submission
of artistic projects developed since 2000 in these three fields. The award
winners will be selected by three separate international juries. The award
winning works and others will be invited to transmediale.03 and will be
presented, circumstances permitting, in the exhibition, screenings, the
media lounge or on stage.

INTERACTION > Interactive Systems
The Image category covers artistic productions focusing on human
interaction with and through digital media. Interactive systems consist of
several components which combine to create an artwork that can be
experienced individually or collectively and whose outcome is relatively
open and dependent on the recipient's participation. These can be locally
based systems like installations or performances, as well as open,
networked processes or action. The evaluation of these works hinges on
their reflection of current social and cultural conditions and on the
choice of adequate media and components which articulate the intention of
the project.

IMAGE > linear and non-linear moving images
The category Image includes works that deal with the aesthetics of moving
images and that reflect the role of the image in the age of digital,
interactive and network media. Such works can deal with the transformation
of visual languages and the emerging, non-linear forms of narration, as
well as with innovative forms of presentation and reception and with the
combination of images with sounds and other forms of artistic expression.
Going beyond the by now classical video format, the Image category also
covers projects in areas like video performance, Internet movie or
interactive story telling.

SOFTWARE > Generative Art
The Software category includes projects whose main artistic material is
program code, or which deal with the cultural understanding of Software.
Thus, software is not understood as a functional tool serving the 'real'
artistic work, but as a generative means for the creation of machinic and
social processes. Software art can be the result of an autonomous and
formal creative practice, but it can also refer the cultural and social
meaning of software, or reflect on existing software through strategies
like collage or critique.

Conditions of Entry

Arrival no later than: 8 September 2002

Accepted media: S-VHS and VHS-tapes, Mini-DVs (Pal), DVDs, CD-ROMs, Zip
cartridges, Floppy Discs (3.5), Web-sites. No demo versions - only finished

The evaluation by the jury requires good documentation of submitted works
(especially in the fields of Software and Interaction). Where appropriate,
an explanation should be given as to which aspects of the works the jury
should consider in particular.

Mailing costs will be borne by the entrant. Submissions will be returned on
request only, subject to the following conditions:
- - submissions from Germany must have a stamped and self-addressed envelope
- - submissions from abroad must have a US $ 10 or EUR 10 bill (cash only)

There will be no insurance cover for the material received. Should a work
be damaged through the fault of the transmediale only the material value
will be reimbursed.

Works submitted must be in German or English or have subtitles in either of
these languages. Works in other languages must be accompanied by a text
list in German
or English.

Customs Declarations
The transmediale will only accept packages from abroad whose customs
declaration forms have been completed correctly. Packages dispatched from
outside the European Union must bear the following information: indication
of the content plus the note "Not for trade - temporary loan for festival.
Value = 0".

Theme: play global!

transmediale.03 deals with the artistic and cultural effects of
globalisation. The competition for the transmediale award is an independent
part of the festival, so that submissions for the competitions can, but do
not have to relate to the festival theme 'play global!'.

Globalisation is a process through which the possibility of world-wide
relations extends across the entire field of social relations. In the
course of this process, we do not only see the expansion of economic,
political and military constellations. The world is turning into a
multi-layered social space for which new cultural concepts have to be
developed in order for individuals and groups to be able to act. Mobile
communication, telematic tools, world-wide collaborative structures and
global political alliances create a new cultural landscape whose rules will
have to be learned and worked on.

'Play global!' is meant as a challenge to artists and creative
practitioners to propose concepts and ideas for this new, global field of
action and interaction. Is there a new artistic language of the global?
What is the relationship between an individual's local existence and his or
her social environment, which is less and less locally determined and which
can today include collaborators, partners and friends working at the other
end of the world?

Obviously, the challenge to participate in the 'global game' is not without
irony. The so-called 'global players', companies and conglomerates, use
their extensive networks and huge masses of capital to transgress national
borders, viewing the entire world as their playground. The festival will
present critical and self-conscious as well as playful responses to this

We therefore invite the submission of concepts, project proposals and

By Liza Featherstone and United Students Against Sweatshops 
Verso (available now) 

"Campus activism lives! This  inspiring and lucid account of the work of
United Students against Sweatshops proves it.  Blending commitment and
analysis, Featherstone tells us why USAS is about much more than caps and
t-shirts -- it's about worker's rights, women's rights, challenging the
corporatization of the university, and establishing  a fair world order."
- -- Katha Pollitt, Nation magazine columnist 

 "Here are the inspiring voices of our democracy -- young people daring to
question authority and confront power.  These are the Thomas Paines,
Sojourner Truths, Fredrick Douglasses, and Mother Joneses of our times. 
America needs them more than ever."
- -- Jim Hightower, radio commentator  

Liza Featherstone is a New York City journalist who has written
extensively about student, youth and labor organizing. A frequent
contributor to The Nation, Newsday and The Washington Post, she is now
writing a book about Wal-Mart workers.
