Re: <nettime> ISEA 2011 fees

Are not we doing that i.e. "self organizing", already?

One of the problems is to have distant houses and buildings on route spread across the globe to be visited in a free and open way and to be able to maintain these places of gathering with a minimum "personal" dependencies on financial and/ or tax burdens

One of these places is "Art Residency Walkenried, Germany" see:

Be welcome,

These fees make me seriously reconsider my participation in ISEA  2011.
I wonder if our money is not better spent organizing a
counter-conference that does not discriminate based on ability to  pay.
Perhaps we would then be able to have a real "international  symposium
on electronic art".

Electronic art has always been the bastard child of corporate
sponsorship -- sometimes disguised through the dodgy mediation of
academic prestige. Yet electronic art is one of the most important  set
of lenses/vehicles that we have for the perception of global  systems.
