Subject: Install.exe - Jodi exhibition in Basel @ plug in 


Sept. 18th, 7pm
Introduction by Tilman Baumgärtel and Annette Schindler

in [plug in] from September 18. till October 27. 2002

Exhibition-Finissage and Publication-Opening
October 26. 2002, 9pm as a part of VIPER 22 Internationa Festival fro Film
Video and New Media

They simulate error messages, viruses, computer crashes. They overflow your
screen with never ending streams of colorful hieroglyphs. They revitalize
dead computer languages. Jodi's work is about what lies behind the well
known surface of the browser, its about the code. And it is about the
dialectics between humans and technology, between controlling and beeing
controlled: Jodi lets us experience these things, makes us navigate though
irritating systems and become aware of our own blindness. Jodi finds a
poignant visual language for these realities of life. A language which
comes across not only for computer nerds but also for all of those of us
who ever sat down at a computer.

Jodi (Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans, Barcelona) were among the first
ones, who used the browser as an artistic tool. They succeeded in
developing a precise artistic language with digital means and to create
some substantial content with it. No one had set an example for them. They
were the ones to set standards and provide the reference.

With install.exe Jodi sabotages the supposed certainty that their art can
only take place on the internet: They present an exhibition in the physical
space of [plug in] as well as a print publication. For orthodox approaches
to net art this means breaking a taboo. For Jodi it's the consequence of
their disturbance-tactic.

Install.exe is the first comprehensive solo show of Jodis work, and their
first solo print publication. The project is a collaboration of [plug in]
Basel and network agent Tilman Baumgärtel from Berlin. As a independent
writer he publishes on media- and internet-culture and has set standards on
the mediation of netart with his two books  Materialien zur
Netzkunst, Nürnberg 1999 und  Neue Materialien zur
Netzkunst/new materials on net art, Nürnberg 2001.

 The print publication is designed by the young Swiss designer Rafael Koch
in close collaboration with Jodi. Flipping though the pages, the book will
show only Jodi-images at first sight. Inside the fold out image pages the
texts are to be found: Contributions in english and german from Annette
Schindler and Waling Boers, Tilman Baumgärtel, Frederic Madre, Pit Schulz,
Florian Cramer and Josephine Bosma. The book is edited by [plug in], Tilman
Baumgärtel and BüroFriedrich and published by Christoph Merian Verlag, Basel. 
112 pages, colour illustrations, CHFr. 38.-, Euro 26.- plus shipping.

Jodi and Tilman Baumgärtel will be present at the opening of the
exhibition. For further informations or to set um a date for an interveiw

Subject: CODeDOC

An online exhibition 
at the Whitney Museum's artport 

Participating artists: Sawad Brooks, Mary Flanagan, Alex Galloway, John
Klima, Golan Levin, Kevin McCoy, Mark Napier, Brad Paley, Scott Snibbe,
Camille Utterback, Martin Wattenberg, Maciej Wisniewski 

CODeDOC takes a reverse look at 'software art' projects by focusing on and
comparing the 'back end' of the code that drives the artwork's 'front
end'--the result of the code, be it visuals or a more abstract communication
process. A dozen artists coded a specific assignment in a language of their
choice and were asked to exchange the code with each other for comments. The
results of the programming are made visible only after the code--what
visitors to this site encounter first is a text document of code from which
they can launch the front end of the project. CODeDOC is an endeavor to take
a closer look at the process of this particular artistic practice, and to
raise questions about the parameters of artistic creation.

National Brown Nose Day - October 7th

Happening everywhere

In Solidarity with National Pine Gap Convergence October 7-9

we're calling on peacemakers, politicians, activists, artists, actors,
acrobats, skaters, jugglers, kids, the unemployed, workers of all kinds,
comediens to support and organise locally for NATIONAL BROWN NOSE DAY.

This is timely + with some serious last minute madness we can pull off a
phat media jam + have heaps of fun. creating spontaneous interactions
about Australia's shamefull and continued brown nosing of the US in
workplaces, trains, schools, uni's etc etc on the last day of the PINE GAP

It's as easy as 1,2,3, 4 we don't support the US and it's war(z) {makes
me[sic]} 1) get a crew together that love the idea and start brainstorming
strategy + let us know what you are planning so we can share ideas, media
+ stuff 2) start making brown noses and boxes for distribution. we
recommend cheap ping pong balls, elastic, passion fruit shells, old fake
noses and heaps of brown paint! 3) have a launch this sunday or monday,
let us know about it Launch of . . . 22/3 October Theatre, BRown noses +


because there's blood on our hands and shit on our nose australians are
sick of our governments compliance with the US war machine; we are an
integral cog, with blood on our hands, and shit on our nose thanx to our
constant brown nosing of the US no matter what they do! Here's some things
that make us want to scrub up!

1) Our compliance in the ludicrous 'war on terror', the atrocious bombing
of Afghanistan, and planned attack on Iraq
2) Pine Gap The US's largest communications and military installation
outside the US, right here in the Australian Desert, linking the global
web of terror to our surrounding regions.
3) Cockburn Sound Sea-Swap is the WA example of our open port policy to US
Warships and submarines. The State and Federal Government are currently
lobbying to dredge more of this channel and make it a major refuelling and
restaffing base.
4) Missile testing on the coast of Lancelin, just north of Perth
5) US spy base 'Echelon' just out of Geraldton WA
6) Refusal to sign KYOTO Protocol, another brown nose for us.

Konferenz, Nightspace, Open Workspaces, 9.-13. Oktober 2002 im Café 
Moskau, Karl-Marx-Allee 34, Berlin Mitte/ Friedrichshain

Von Formalismus zu Flux - Mobilität und neue urbane Strategien

Der Visionär und Architekt Cedric Price definierte  bei dem Symposium 
2001, "Urban Drift" als einen Begriff, der sowohl Bewegung als auch 
Großzügigkeit impliziert.
Dieses Jahr, vom 9.-13. Oktober, wird Urban Drift dieser Definition mehr 
denn je gerecht werden: Die breit angelegte Plattform besteht aus einer 
zweitägigen Konferenz, dem  Nightspace, ausgefeilten 
Abendveranstaltungen und für die Öffentlichkeit zugängige Ateliers und 
Büros in ganz Berlin (Open Workspaces).

Der diesjährige Hauptveranstaltungsort, das Café Moskau, befindet sich 
auf der Karl-Marx-Allee in der Nähe des Alexanderplatzes und ist, gerade 
im Kontext der Rekonstruktion und Neuentwicklung Berlins, eines der 
bemerkenswertesten Gebäude der Stadt.
Das Café Moskau gehört zu den "Sonderbauten" der DDR-Architektur aus den 
frühen sechziger Jahren. Es schmückt sich mit utopischen Mosaiken und 
dem Modell eines Sowjet-Sputniks. Das Gebäude liegt auf dem direkten Weg 
zur deutsch/polnischen Grenze.
Über fünf Jahre war das Café Moskau geschlossen und Urban Drift wird 
nach der Wiedereröffnung eine der ersten Veranstaltungen in diesen 
Räumen sein.

Die Konferenz - Von Formalismus zu Flux - Mobilität und neue urbane Strategien -
Freitag 11. und Samstag 12.Oktober 2002

Die Konferenz von Urban Drift ist ein zweitägiges, internationales 
Symposium, das Teilnehmer unterschiedlicher Disziplinen wie Architektur, 
Urbanismus, interaktives Design, Kunst und Medienaktivismus in einem 
Diskurs über Mobilität, Netzwerk-Urbanismus, das "Design der Flüsse" und 
globale Mobilitätsphänomene für die Bereiche Architektur und Urbanismus 
zusammenbringt. Urban Drift wird dabei die Repolitisierung des 
Architekturdiskurses thematisieren.

Hauptredner sind Lars Lerup, Dekan der School of Architecture aus 
Houston, Texas und Irene McAra Mc William, Computer Related Design, 
Royal College of Arts, London.

Themen der Urban Drift Konferenz und Panels:
- - Die urbane und politische Dimension drahtloser LAN-Netzwerke (mit 
Armin Medosch, James Stevens von, Simone Worthington, Mute 
Magazin und Shu Lea Cheang, Medienkünstler).

- - Die flüchtige Dynamik der Stadt lesen: Wie können Architekten und 
Urbanisten Inspirationen aus den spontanen, ungeplanten, 
selbstorganisierten, beschleunigten Prozessen ziehen, mit denen in 
Großstädten Individuen ihre Räume gestalten? (mit Stefano Boeri, 
Multiplicities, Mailand, Guido Borelli, Direktor für urbanes Management 
an der Domus Design Akademie, Mailand, Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss, Normal 
Group, Belgrad, Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Studio bow wow, Tokio).
- - Die Mangelwirtschaft und das Potential der Leere: mit Stephen Kovats, 
- - Berlin als Grenzstadt ( mit Uwe Rada, die tageszeitung, Berlin)
- - Mobilität contra Ort: periphere, verlassene urbane Plätze (u.a. mit 
Jean Louis Paillard, Périphériques, Paris, L21 Architekten, Leipzig)

- - Taktische Mobilität - u.a. Nikes situationistische Branding Marketing 
Aktivitäten und die Reaktivierung und strategische Nutzung 
unterberwerteter öffentlicher Räume, mit Knowbotic Research und 

OPEN WORKSPACES - vom 9.- 13.Oktober in ganz Berlin

und Künstler ihre Arbeitsräume für die Urban Drift-Teilnehmer. In Berlin 
werden die Besucher, im Vergleich zu anderen Großstädten, mit einer 
Besonderheit konfrontiert werden: In den meisten Fällen sind die 
tatsächlichen Arbeitsräume mehr als nur das. Sie sind Ausdruck des 
eigenen Selbsverständnisses, oft außergewöhnlich großzügig und 
gleichzeitig Ausstellungsraum, Treffpunkt und Labor für 
interdisziplinären Austausch und Zusammenarbeit.

Mit dem Velotaxi können sich die Urban Drift - Besucher auf eine 
ausgewählte Open Workspace -Tour durch Berlin begeben.

Rad Berlin und Latif Oberholz.

Außerdem: Workshop von im Bootlab. Ziel des Workshops ist 
es, die Kolloboration zwischen Berliner und Londoner Wireless-Groups zu 
vertiefen und die kulturellen und politischen Implikationen von 
Freenetwoks zu demonstrieren und zu diskutieren.

NIGHTSPACE 10.- bis 12. Oktober ab 20.00 Uhr, Café Moskau

Ein Forum für transformatorischen Urbanismus oder "das unerschöpfliche 
Inventar der Strasse".

9th - 13th October, Café Moskau, Karl-Marx Allee 34, Berlin/Friedrichshain, and
workspaces throughout Berlin


At last year's urban drift symposium, the architect Cedric Price defined
the term urban drift as one which implied both movement and generosity.
This year from the 9th to the 13th October 2002, urban drift will be
able to do greater justice to its name and will manifest itself as a
broad-based platform made up of a two-day conference, a night space - a
forum for transformational urbanism - drawing together artists,
architects, filmmakers, writers, sound artists and DJs in a mutual
exchange - and open workspaces throughout the city.

The main location, Café Moskau, on the Karl-Marx-Allee near
Alexanderplatz, is in itself a significant building - particularly in
the context of Berlin's redevelopment.
One of the notable buildings of the early sixties, adorned with utopian
mosaics, and a model of the USSR sputnik - donated to the GDR - it has
been closed for over two years and by the time urban drift takes place
it will be partially renovated and open for events and temporary use. 10
minutes away from Alexanderplatz, Café Moskau stands on the main artery
towards the German/Polish border.

The conference - From Formalism to Flux - mobility and new urban
strategies - October 11th and 12th, 2002

A two-day international symposium drawing together international
participants from the disciplines of architecture, urbanism, interactive
design, art and media activism, in a mutual discourse on mobility -
mobile connectivity, the "design of flows", and global mobility
phenomena in urbanism and architecture. Urban drift will reflect the
re-politicisation of architectural practice.

Keynote speaker is Lars Lerup, Dean, School of Architecture, Houston
Texas and Irene McAra Mc William, computer related design, RCA London
will discuss mobile connectivity.

Panel themes include - the urban and political phenomenon of wireless -
LAN - networks, (including Armin Medosch, James Stevens of,
Simon Worthington, Mute Magazine, and Shu lea Cheang, nomadic media

accommodating flux and reading the urban dynamic: How can architects and
urbanists draw inspiration from rapidly accelerated urban processes: the
unplanned, spontaneous and self-organized processes in cities where
individuals are designing their own spaces....
(participants include: Stefano Boeri, Multiplicities, Milan, Guido
Borelli, Director of Urban Management at the Domus Design Academy,
Milan, Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss, Normal Group - Belgrade, Yoshiharu
Tsukamoto, Studio bow wow, Tokyo).

Further themes include: the potential of urban voids - Stephen Kovats,
Montreal; the "economy of scarcity" - Mangelwirtschaft; Berlin as a
border city: Uwe Rada, Die taz, and Mobility versus Place:
residual/peripheral urban spaces (with Jean Louis Paillard,
Périphériques, Paris, L21 architects, Leipzig),
Finally, Tactical Mobility, will include media activists - knowbotic
research, analysis of Nike's situationist branding, and a discussion on
the reactivation of underused, or undervalued public spaces.

OPEN WORKSPACES - from 9th - 13th October, 2002 throughout Berlin.
As part of urban drift this year, we will include a number of workspaces
in Berlin - architectural practices, designers, and artists.
With Open Workspaces we mean spaces which are more than offices and
studios, rather they are hybrid spaces, incorporating exhibition spaces,
laboratories for interdisciplinary exchange and collaborations, and
meeting points for mutual exchange on the urban drift themes. These
hybrid spaces are a phenomenon very specific to Berlin.
- - A map - provided by velotaxi - will allow for an urban drift between
these different locations between the 9th and the 13th October.

amongst the participants of the open workspaces are lessrain, Hoyer and
Schindele architects, filesharing, Raumlabor, die Alex psd (artists and
activists bringing current public space issues to the forefront through
interventions and actions on Alexanderplatz), Platoon ( a group of
designers who will place 2 shipping containers in Mitte, and will offer
WLAN access, and provide a temporary media lab for berlin's
'sub-cultural' scene), e27, Pfadfinderei, Standard Rad, and Latif

THE NIGHTSPACE+ October 10th/11th and 12th - at Café Moskau, Karl-Marx-Allee 34
and workspaces throughout Berlin

A forum for transformational urbanism: "The inexhaustible inventory of
the streets"

The night space will bring together talks, presentations and visuals,
video screenings, readings, and Dj's in the spirit of the situationist
derive. The participants are actively engaged in affecting,
transforming, intervening, in the urban landscape. Themes include: urban
nomadism and mobile urban strategies, urban curating.

experimentelle Kunst aus Litauen

Literatur, Theater, Musik und Kunst

Berlin, 24. bis 28. September 2002

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren!

Das OFF-BEATS Büro und das ACUD präsentieren in Kooperation mit dem
MitOst e.V. Highlights experimenteller Kunst aus Litauen -- fern von
Bernsteinkitsch, singender Revolution und wodkaseliger Verklärung.

Litauen ist Gastland der diesjährigen Frankfurter Buchmesse. Die
öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit, die der baltischen Republik in diesem
Zusammenhang zuteil wird, eröffnet auch der Off-Kultur die Chance, bei
uns gehört und gesehen zu werden.

Neugier und Lust am Experiment treffen auf leere Kassen im Etat des
Transformationslandes. Künstler werden unter diesen Bedingungen, ob sie
wollen oder nicht, zu Grenzgängern und Grenzüberschreitern.
Heimatverbundene Nomaden, die Raum- und Genreschranken hinter sich
lassen. Deren Kunst transnational, aber unverkennbar auf litauischem
Boden geerdet ist: katholisch-dörfliche Traditionen und
Nachwende-Erfahrungen mischen sich mit multinationalen Identitäten und
Reminiszenzen an die Sowjetkultur.

Das OFF-BEATS Büro freut sich, Ihnen erstmalig litauische Autoren,
Musiker, Theaterleute und Künstler aus Vilnius, Klaipeda und Berlin
vorstellen zu können.

Wir möchten Sie herzlich zu einer Exkursion durch den litauischen
Kultur-Wildwuchs einladen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

das OFF-BEATS Büro und das Kunsthaus ACUD

The Transmedia postgraduate program in arts, media & design is a two-year,
full-time course and leads to a postgraduate diploma in Transmedia studies.

During the first INPUT year, you hone your production skills in the
Transmedia lab, learn directly from visiting artists, engage with the
history and theory of transmedia art in seminars, attend public events and
devote time to your own work. This input confronts and fuels you with
different ways of working and thinking in order to develop your ideas and
methods further. We do not want you to switch discipline and start from
scratch. The program is not designed to turn web designers into filmmakers
or conceptual artists into graphic designers. Instead, we set up an
interdisciplinary research environment from which you can learn and deepen
your own practice. You will be challenged to rethink your process, develop
new approaches and redefine your work. At the end of the year, you will
submit a portfolio as well as a research dossier that outlines your
individual graduation project. Since there are no exams at Transmedia, your
admission to the second year hinges mainly on the review of this dossier.

During the second OUTPUT year, you devote most, if not all of your time to
your individual graduation project that consists of a substantiated art
work, i.e. a work supported by a contextual statement and defense. This
argumentation can take on different forms (a written essay, a live
presentation, a web site, a slide show, a video tape,=8A) and is meant to
contextualize your project. At this stage in the program, a tutor of your
choice helps you further refine your skills and ideas through discussions,
readings, research, and small projects. Visiting artists comment on your
work-in-progress and public events continue to inspire you as you pursue th=
intensive, final transmedia project of your own design.

Transmedia offers you a stimulating environment where you have access to
state-of-the-art facilities. The aim of our program is to encourage you in
producing art-work that involves the computer either as a working tool
(editing, designing, programming) or as a presentation model (multimedia
installation, web site, CD-ROM). Still, we emphasize the user's creativity
rather than the machine. You are challenged to engage computer-mediated
interactivity as broadly as possible, that is, using different and
alternative forms of narration, installation and interface to foster
innovative forms of communication and expression through transmedia
art-work. We believe that people of different backgrounds and experiences
are central to this collaborative, multi-disciplinary practice. Therefore,
we welcome candidates from a variety of backgrounds: from graphic design,
visual arts, architecture, and performance to photography, film, video,
installation, and new media, but also from the humanities, sciences, music
composition, dance, and industrial design.

What sets the Transmedia program apart from university-based and regular ar=
school training programs is its exceptional focus on research and its
integrated mix of art practice and critical thought. This enables you to
emphasize not only technical knowledge, but also the conceptual
understanding and insights you will need to produce thoughtful, engaging,
and professional art-work. You work closely with internationally recognized
teachers and visiting artists who are actively shaping the direction of
thinking and practice in the rapidly evolving transmedia field through thei=
own work.

Things you should know:
- - Transmedia is housed in Brussels, Belgium at the Hogeschool Sint-Lukas
Brussels near the center of the city.
- - The working language of this international program is English, so
proficiency in that language, both spoken and written, is required.
- - The Transmedia program (1st and 2nd year) starts on November 4, 2002 and
ends on June 30, 2003.
- - The final deadline for applications for the 1st year is October 1, 2002.
The number of new admissions for the 2002-2003 academic year is limited to
