Subject: Call for Proposals Playing Field

Playing Field

Playing Field is an international co-production of the Netherlands Media Art
Institute (NIM) in Amsterdam, IMG in Mainz and Mecad in Barcelona, aimed at
the creation of streaming media art specially for Internet.

Internet and advanced technologies used on the internet were originally
developed to cope with huge technological challenges in science.
Co-operating groups in different countries needed a fast communication
system in order to work on the same experiment in different locations.
Satellites collecting amounts of data needed a way to send information to
ground stations in real-time, the first examples of data streaming. Today
the data networks are expanding. Advanced technologies are becoming
available for other purposes. It is time for artists to explore the
possibilities of new technologies. Looking for new ways of expression that
were not possible without new technology rather than reformatting existing
art. Also time has come to reflect on the meaning of streaming technology
for our lives and culture in this modern world.

New technologies can also put restrictions on existing ways of expression.
The quality of video streamed on the internet is poor, due to the speed of
the average Internet connection. Knowing the restrictions we have to look
for new ways of expression that take advantage of the specific qualities of
streaming, creating art that could never exist without streaming technology.
One of the challenges is to create streaming media art that establishes its
own position in the context of existing video art.

Playing Field aims at the creation of streaming art specially for internet,
exploring the added value of internet technology. Specific features of
streaming media are for example: live broadcast, interactivity,
time-dependent behaviour, 24 hour availability for a worldwide public,
multi-user communication, using several video, audio and interactivity
channels at the same time. Also the restrictions of internet and streaming
media will be explored and exploited: small bandwith, small video image
size, slow connections, waiting time caused by signal buffering.
The way the work is displayed on the screen has to be taken into account and
can be designed, the situation and the context in which the work is shown is
important and can be used in the concept.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" ; format="flowed"


December 20th - 21st 2002 - TWO DAYS OF SOCIAL DISOBEDIENCE IN 

As Argentina tumbles further into uncharted financial crisis an 
inspiring popular rebellion has been spreading across the country. An 
ongoing  movement has developed that has become a living laboratory 
of struggle, a space where the popular politics of the future are 
being re-invented. The rising rebellion exploded on December 20th 
2001, when over a million people took to the streets banging their 
pots and pans and ousting the government. This year on the 20th of 
December people in Argentina and across the globe are calling for a 
global day of Action to demonstrate that those who are building 
alternatives to the dictatorship of the markets are not alone.

 From the unemployed workers movement, "the piqueteros", blockading 
roads and building community projects in their neighborhoods - to the 
"asambleas", the horizontally organized neighborhood meetings that 
have sprung up spontaneously in the cities. From the "Ahorristas", 
the angry savers who attack the banks daily to get their money back - 
to the "Trueque" barter network which 7 million people are using 
instead of money. From the workers in numerous occupied factories who 
are self managing their work places - to the High school students 
occupying their schools demanding cheaper bus fares; the spirit of 
autonomy, the celebration of diversity and the practice of direct 
democracy can be seen across Argentina.

Every social strata is united in the slogan "Que Se Vayan Todos", 
they all must go, meaning that the entire political class leaves the 
stage, every politician from every party, the supreme court, the IMF, 
the multinational corporations, the banks - everyone out, so the 
people can decide the fate of their economically crippled country 
themselves. In the face of ever increasing poverty and total economic 
meltdown, the people of Argentina have found enough hope to continue 
resisting, and have mustered sufficient creativity to start building 
practical alternatives to the despair of capitalism.

 From Angola to Nepal,  Bolivia to Turkey,  the same cracks are 
appearing in the neoliberal "logic," and people are resisting as 
their economies fall apart and their societies are further crippled 
by foreign debt. A dozen countries are poised to be the "next 
Argentina," and some of them may be a lot closer to home than we ever 

We need to be prepared, not only to resist, but to find ways to 
rebuild our societies when the economic and ecological crisis hits. 
If the popular rebellion in Argentina succeeds, it could show the 
world that people are able to live through severe crisis and come out 
the other side, not merely having survived, but stronger, and happier 
for struggling for new ways of living.

For two days in  December,  when tens of thousands of Argentineans 
will take to the streets to celebrate last years uprising, actions 
and events will take place across the world in solidarity with the 
people of Argentina.

What can you do on these days ? Here are some ideas ...Take pots and 
pans into the streets to celebrate the sound of the Cacerolazo, start 
up a local neighborhood assembly, Blockade roads in solidarity with 
the Piqueteros, occupy your workplace or college and try out self 
management, expropriate goods will dancing tango, subvert the spirit 
of consumer Christmas by creating a barter market ....the options are 

The aims of the Days of Social Disobedience include:

1) To show that the movement of movements against capitalism can move 
beyond insurrection towards a real social revolution. A social 
revolution, made of thousands of revolutions,  where people are 
beginning to build the life that they want and preparing to defend it 
rather than simply protesting against what they don't want. And that 
Argentina is an inspiring model of this.

2) To build a powerful global network of solidarity for Argentina. 
The movements in Argentina are in danger of isolation; without the 
security and the mutual inspiration of international solidarity, they 
will suffer further repression.  Although many  in the movement of 
movements worldwide have said "Thank god for Argentina," as we've had 
our hopes rekindled in the dark days post 9-11, most of the people on 
the streets of Argentina have no idea that they've provided such 
widespread optimism. By seeing the worlds social movements acting in 
concert and solidarity with their struggle, the people of Argentina 
will inspired to continue their struggle.

3) To learn from the events in Argentina and apply these lessons to 
building our own autonomous spaces, neighborhood assemblies, 
alternative economic systems, self managed work places etc.

4) To spread the stories and information about the movements in 
Argentina to social movements across the world.

To join the organising email list send mail to:

Many groups are planning actions/events: ranging from the 
Disobedients in Italy, to Direct action groups in Belgium, Wombles in 
the UK, Yamango and in Spain, as well as groups in Jordan, Finland 
and Germany.

Dear reader,

Following chaotic weeks of preparations, the doors of the first REALTOKYO
MARKET finally opened at noon on Sunday, September 22nd.
Exhausted but happy we closed the doors again at 10pm on the 23rd, and I
want to use this occasion to thank everybody who helped make the event
such a big success - both participants and all those who dropped by on one
of the two days!

After two days dedicated completely to counting, calculating and other
administrative after-care, we returned to business on Thursday, which means
that REALTOKYO was not updated on this week's first three days.
So, don't worry, we will of course continue the daily publication, and once 
crazy week (REALTOKYO BAR on 9/25 & 9/27!) is over, we'll surely do our best
to catch up with filling REALTOKYO with more valuable information.

Thanks again for visiting the market and doing almost excessive shopping!

(1) Tokyo Editors' Diary

Baba Masataka (A), vol. 004

There are several reasons for my overnight stay at a capsule hotel. I can't 
find a better
explanation than calling it an accumulation of unfortunate coincidences. I 
wonder what I'm doing here - writing a diary with "Travelling Life" as its 
theme, and
now I'm stuck here in the Tokyo office and even have to sleep in one of 
those tiny
cells of a capsule hotel!

(2) Event Pick of the Week


Known recently throughout Japan, "Spotlight" is the name of a party that is 
held in Kyoto's "Metro," and finally here comes the first Tokyo edition! 
Members of
the Spotlight label, such as Illreme or Yabemilk, have made appearances around
here also in the past, but as an event gathering the complete line-up 
including also
"Spotlight" originals Sugimoto Takuya (who is now working on a new release) and
DJ Amagumo, this is the first one happening in town. As if this wasn't 
enough, the
crew is joined by long-time collaborator Riow Arai, as well as the Asano 
Band. Attacking Tokyo with their strange 'pop' theme and their music's 
really unique
electronic taste, here come some individuals that will probably cause quite 
a stir in
the whole Kanto area.

Apologies for cross-posting. Please forward to anyone who might be interested

Call for Papers

Historicizing Digital Art

Session for the 2003 Association of Art Historians Conference 'Articulations'

To be held at Birkbeck College and University College London
10th - 13th April 2003

Art made using computers and other new technologies has in general 
received little attention from art historians. Since the 1960s it has 
been treated as a marginal activity that is largely irrelevant to the 
concerns of the history of art and to the trajectories and debates it 
engages with. But recently, with the rise of the World Wide Web and 
the increasingly important role played by digital technology in 
current society, this has begun to change. The critical interest 
generated by contemporary artistic movements such as has also 
enabled the recovery of a rich history of practice in this area, 
going back to the 1950s and before. Digital and computer practice is 
being belatedly recognised as an important part of the history of 
contemporary art. There is a certain urgency to this as both the work 
and knowledge of pioneering practitioners are in danger of 
disappearing before they can be properly accounted for and given 
their due place in the narratives of modern and post-modern cultural 

For this session proposals are invited for papers that look at the 
history of digital and computer art, or which consider the issues in 
historicizing this area, which, hitherto, has not received the 
attention it deserves. Contributions are also welcome that look at 
questions of curation, conservation and collecting of digital art.

Proposals should be no longer than 200 words and be accompanied by 
contact details and an email address. Speakers are not paid and are 
expected to pay conference fees, but are offered reduced rates. If 
you are intending to apply for funding please let me know. This is 
particularly important if your attendance is conditional on funding, 
or if you are applying for British Academy funding.

The deadline is the 1st November 2002. Please send proposals to

matters of interest, from the growing new pop art (SMS) to the =
entertainment field (feature-length video art, interactive theatre) and =
the technological development (smart agents).=20

And finally, in this new situation, given the chance to talk about the =
past, we pay homage to individuals or even machines that have already =
marked the history of the digital culture.=20

We believe that a new idea cannot exist unless it is preceded by a new =
platform to host it and this is essentially what determines the way a =
society evolves.=20

There are times when evolution is characterized by the destruction of =
the platform, but not the ideas; and others when even though the =
platforms have been torn down, and ideas are homeless, new platforms are =
nevertheless created and new ideas generated.=20

The period that our culture is now passing through belongs to the second =
instance. Therefore, acts of renewal or resistance can be primarily =
described as the creation or testing of new platforms and not dispute of =
a system that is already as empty as a discarded snake skin.=20

Nor is it accidental, that the word "platform" in the industrial world =
describes the space between where you are and the means of =
transportation (train, boat) you are about to board to go elsewhere. To =
board a plane or boat you must first cross the platform=C2=85=20

The new platforms then are the landing-stages for the long journey =
humanity is embarking on... The question is who will be boarding and who =
will stay behind and watch the ship pull out=C2=85=20

Streaming Video=20

The advent of DV technology offers new tools to film and video makers. =
These tools are making it possible to produce high quality films cheaply =
and independently of the industry monoliths that currently determine =
what we can see. The new lightweight cameras, streaming technology, and =
DV technology have brought a new lightness of touch to all aspects of =
the moving image from production through to distribution. And a new =
relationship has been created between creativity, technology and the =
digital industry, in the search for a new aesthetic and financial basis =
for film and video makers.=20

Artificial Entities=20

Since the early nineties, the interdisciplinary fields of art, science =
and technology have created a different platform for research, =
collaboration and creation. This generates works that encourage audience =
participation, continuous change and evolution. These could be =
interactive artificial intelligence environments, autonomous and =
advanced robotics and intelligent agents. The features we are looking =
for are innovation, autonomy, interactivity, as well as the subjective =
adjustment and interpretation suggested to the user/viewer allowing him =
to become a user/ co-creator. The aim of creating autonomous virtual =
characters that pose and realize goals, develop actions, are influenced =
by the changes in the environment and then adjust it, gives a new =
dimension in the space of art.=20

art, surveillance, hacktivism, culture jamming, construction of the 
present // 4 meetings

October 4-5, November 9-10 2002

Digital-is-not-analog @CCCB: a series of 4 meetings organized in 
conjunction by d-i-n-a collective ( and the CCCB 

The focus of the meetings is on 4 projects started in the last few 
years, that standed out for their unexpected and provocative 
infiltration within contemporary communication technologies and styles. 
The four invited guests are Surveillance Camera Players (New York), 
Ubermorgen (Wien/Sofia), Casseurs de Pub (Lyon) and Electronic 
Disturbance Theater (New York).

Since the mid 90s, the wide diffusion of basic digital communication 
tools and their exploitation made new forms of creation possible within 
the aesthetical and social innovation processes. While different 
cultures such as social activism, visual and performance arts, radical 
and utopic research on electronical media always shared a largely common 
(but often unacknowledged) background, in the 90s they experimented new 
connections on a technological basis. The result today are projects that 
may be classified by different labels (hacktivism, tactical media, 
culture jamming between others), but that perform a similar way of 
acting as viral entities in the contemporary mediascape.

Digital-is-not-analog @CCCB is meant to give the opportunity of meeting 
some of the protagonists of that scene (some them are presenting their 
work for the first time in Barcelona), but it also aims to be a 
contribution in the very identification of that emerging scene.

The 4 meetings are part of the local events program in preparation of 
the Next5Minutes 4 festival, Amsterdam, May 2003 (

Palestinians is manifested in the built environment and the fight 
over built space and place have fueled the conflict * Hamid Dabashi,
