Workshopsserie 'Auteur in de Nieuwe Media'

Stichting Mediamatic Magazine organiseert een serie langlopende
workshopsover auteurschap in de nieuwe media.
In deze workshops wil Mediamatic het eigene van de
interactieve media onderzoeken en beter leren toepassen. De nieuwe
mogelijkheden vragen om eigen vormen en genres. Schrijvers,
kunstenaars,  denkers en vormgevers werken samen aan kleine
www-projecten met als doel de inhoudelijke mogelijkheden van het Net=20
verder te ontwikkelen. De workshops vinden plaats in wisselwerking met
Mediamatic Magazine. De thema's die centraal staan in het te=20
verschijnen nummer van het tijdschrift, lopen parallel aan die van de
lopende workshop, waardoor een vruchtbare kruisbestuiving kan
Auteurschap van gedrag is de derde workshop in de reeks.

Auteurschap van Gedrag

De nieuwe media onderscheiden zich
van de oude media doordat ze gedrag vertonen: ze doen iets terug als je
ze gebruikt. De workshop 'auteurschap van gedrag' gaat over het bewust
ontwerpen  van dat gedrag. Op welke manier kunnen auteurs 'gedrag'
gebruiken als uitdrukkingsmiddel? In de workshop wordt gezocht naar
nieuwe inhoudelijke inzichten en specifieke vormen of genres van
interactiviteit en de praktische toepassingen daarvan in de context
van het eigen werk van de deelnemers.

De workshop begint met een inleidend tweedaags symposium. Het onderwerp
wordt aan de hand van lezingen, demonstraties en discussie verkend. Aan
het eind van het weekend wordt over mogelijke projecten gebrainstormd.

Tijdens de eerste werkbijeenkomst worden keuzes gemaakt uit de
geopperde projecten. Werkgroepen worden geformeerd op  basis van
affiniteit met de  voorstellen.  Er wordt naar gestreefd mensen van
verschillende professionele achtergrond te laten samenwerken. Het
gebruik van elkaars inzichten en ervaring brengt naar verwacht ook een
groter technisch begrip van de huidige mogelijkheden met zich mee. De
werkbijeenkomsten beginnen steeds met een verslag van de vorderingen en
moelijkheden, gevolgd door discussie.  De resterende tijd wordt=20
gewerkt aan het realiseren van de gekozen projecten.  De daarvoor
geschikte resultaten  worden gepubliceerd in Mediamatic Magazine, en
eventueel te zijner tijd gepresenteerd in club BABY.

o Inleidend symposium 6 & 7 februari 1999 met lezingen en
demonstraties. Dit weekend is ook apart bij te wonen, zonder verdere
deelname aan de workshop.

o Zeven werk- en feedbackbijeenkomsten op donderdagavond 11, 18, 25
februari, en 4, 11, 18, en 25 maart  1999.

o Eindpresentatie 28 maart 1999.

 architexturez: looking for a few good founding members...

 "the architexturez project is an attempt to create a place online for
 the collaboration of a distributed network of architectural students,
 researchers, practicioners, professors, critics, theorists, laypeople,
 and others interested in the study and understanding of the designed
 and built environment. there are no requirements or political allegiances
 needed to participate in this networked forum, other than to share your
 architectural ideas in public, outside of the traditional architectural
 institutions. by contributing your thoughts, you become an active part
 of the architexturez network."

 what do you think..?

>From January 24 - 31, nervous_objects will be presenting their third online
work, terra_nova, based in and around a stone dance hall in Pekina, South

This week long nightly sojourn will give rise to an online,
environment-driven, spatial narrative. Experimental, collaborative work
will be developed in response to the remote location of Pekina, a small
town in the wheat belt of Central South Australia.

Set your browser location to each night, where
terra_nova will be evolving.

The Pekina window times are:

19.00 - 24.00 [CAST Central Australian Standard Time]

been working together for the last 2 years on a number of online internet
based projects.

>some of their positions. We were doing manifestations, demonstrations, a
>big 36-hour-rave, we opened some uncontrolled checkpoints at the German-
>Polish borders, we gave some free music and radio performances for some
>deportees detained in Goerlitz, we had a streetball event with a famous
>Berlin basketball player, we established an own little camp-radio, we
>attacked some Nazi-meeting-points, we we had a big "Antiracist Regatta" on
>the river Neisse and we have "won" a grand bicycle race in Goerlitz
>promoting the case of secret border crossing, helping people to do so and
>to live in dignity in Germany. And we distributed a camp newspaper with a
>high circulation to the border population to if not convince them to give
>them an idea of our demands, as a kind of letter claiming responsibility.
>And we felt the sad obligation to protest spontaneously in Freiberg at the
>Herman-Czech border where some secretly bordercrossing people died in a
>small van that crashed after a chase with/by the Federal Border-Police:
>seven of the Kosovo-Albanians died, some of the remaining 21 were severely
>This years Camp, the "1999  Antiracist Summer Camp" will be in August and
>again at or near the border triangle between Germany, Poland and the Czech
>We invite all interested groups and persons to come, to participate and to
