///////////////////////////// WAVE Berlin Panel Discussion 8-10 PM
Fluctuations in the economy have become similar to global climate warnings : 
nobody knows exactly what will happen tomorrow, or whether the future will be 
bleak or bright. Uncertainty seems to become the only certain rule.

Throughout the early 20th century, art was the forerunner of social, political and 
technological upheaval. Art at the time foresees (but not always understands) 
in advance what would happen. Now, artistic activity seems too be carried 
away by the whirlwind of uncertainty.

The democratic ideal has never seemed so fragile. To a very large extend, it 
remains to be a total utopia. The modesty of political ambitions, the widespread 
practice of mafia, the rise of nationalist and religious sect, continuation of poverty, 
distraught middle-class, all these elements are destroying day after day the 
ideals of brotherhood, equality, and liberty.

Modern communication technology and the digital economy have overwhelmed 
all social practices, either cultural or economical but we still have great difficulty 
understanding the reality. We still continue to struggle with positive outlook 
and engage in critical changes into the future.

In this context, it is possible to imagine new relationships between money, 
politics, and artistic creation ? How will we identify new approaches, especially 
critical approaches in a time of crisis ?

///////////////////////////// WJ-SPOTS Berlin - 10 PM to midnight

Anne Roquigny, French media arts curator http://www.roquigny.info will follow her 
series of interviews, in Berlin, of outstanding figures of the internet community who 
share their reflections of 15 years of Internet history. The interviews are conducted 
inside the WJ-S (webjay) http://www.wj-s.org multi-screen environment, transformed 
into a space for thought and investigation. Live online browsing into a selection of 
emblematic websites, chosen by the speakers, take place simultaneously on 3 big screens. 
Real time surfing magnifies and augments thought presentation, offering multiple points 
of view while the participants comment and analyze, from an artistic perspective, 
how the Internet has been progressively taken over as a space of artistic creation, 
from its beginning until now. http://www.wj-s.org/WJ-SPOTS-1-15-years-of-internet
