<nettime> Transmediale.08 re-included the project 'Signature, Event, Context' to the exhibition

<german version below>

As reported today on the Transmediale.08 website, the project
Signature, Event, Context by Janez Jansa, Janez Jansa and Janez
Jansa has been officially re-included to the exhibition CONSPIRE.
This decision came along with the following mutual statement of the
festival direction, the guest curator and the artists:


The performative installation 'Signature, Event, Context' as proposed
to the transmediale.08 exhibition by Janez Jansa, Janez Jansa and
Janez Jansa had been accepted for inclusion to the exhibition. In the
run-up to the festival due to the curatorial and ethical convictions
of Natasa Petresin Bachelez, the guest curator of the transmediale.08
exhibition, a decision was taken with the festival direction to not
include the project. However, after the exhibition opening, and
following a discussion with the artists, the festival direction has
agreed with the curator to re-include the project, while the curator
would like to distance herself from the project. A documentation of
the project is on display at the foyer of the House of World Cultures.

Der Vorschlag zu einer performativen Installation 'Signature,
Event, Context' von Janez Jansa, Janez Jansa und Janez Jansa war
urspr??nglich f??r die Ausstellung der transmediale.08 vorgesehen.
In der Vorbereitung des Festivals entschied die Gastkuratorin Natasa
Petresin Bachelez gemeinsam mit der Festivalleitung, das Projekt
aus kuratorischen und ethischen Gr??nden nicht in die Ausstellung
aufzunehmen. Nach der Er??ffnung der Ausstellung und in Absprache mit
den K??nstlern entschied die Festivalleitung das Projekt auszustellen,
wobei die Kuratorin sich davon distanziert. Die Dokumentation des
Projekts ist im Foyer des Haus der Kulturen der Welt zu sehen.
