Electronic media art competition

The Fraunhofer Society's E-Business Innovation Center is awarding a prize
for an electronic media work of art which will be installed at the five
linked sites of the partner institutes.
We invite all artists with experience in the field of electronic media art
to send a conceptual contribution to the competition.

The following prizes will be awarded:

First prize       DM 5000
Second prize      DM 3000
Third prize       DM 2000

For the realisation phase of the work of art an additional budget is
available (details see below)

A competition jury will select and award prizes to the three most
interesting entries. Legal recourse is excluded.

The jury consists of: 

Prof. Peter Weibel, Chairman of the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe,

Gertfried Stocker, Director of the Ars Electronica Center (AEC), Linz,

Tilman Baumgaertel, editor at the "Berliner Zeitung", at the moment Guest
Professor at the University of Paderborn

Thomas Renner, Head of the E-Business Innovation Center 

Stefan Federspiel, artist, web designer

The media art work will be expected to meet the following criteria:

Artistic and content requirements:

A confrontation - which can be critical as well - with the economic
processes and consequences of the Internet-age is required. This includes
for example world-wide networking in general, the change of the Internet
through commercial use, the permanently rising private and professional use
of e-business, the change of trade through the use of the Internet, the
elimination of geographical and temporal limits etc.

The Internet is the shared platform used by artists, commercial companies
and scientific institutions. The Fraunhofer Society points to this relation
with the installation of a work of art at the E-Business Innovation Center. 

The work of art can be realised using all kinds of pictorial, associative,
playful, tactile and/or acoustic elements which are available today. We do
imagine a work of art which works with multi-media elements and, possibly,
uses the Internet or the networking itself. The artist should deploy
appealing, exciting, fascinating means which stimulate viewers to spend time
exploring the work of art. Viewers should be offered a new perspective or a
new means of experiencing the theme.

Technical requirements:

- a work of art for conventional browsers and web-servers, realised with
html, Javascript, JAVA, CGI script etc. 
- a work of art as stand-alone multi-media software or presentation (e.g.
realised with Macromedia Director, JAVA etc.)

Each with or without interaction between various sites via intranet or
Internet (e.g. via the sites of the five Fraunhofer partner institutes).

Integration of innovative visual and acoustic media or unusual combinations.

Equipment and software must be capable of maintenance by standard IT

Concept to be submitted:

The concept must contain a detailed description of the media art as well as
a draft outline of its technical realisation.

The concept should be structured into the following elements:

1) How is the media work of art structured, what processes or responses does
the viewer initiate, what do the screens or pictures look like? (Possible
thumbnails or drafts in attachment).

2) How is the theme, as it is described in the artistic requirements,
reflected in this structure?

3) Draft a schedule showing when the work could be completed.

4) List the costs for software, possible software development, materials and

5) Describe the technical resources; what equipment/hardware will you need
in order to realise the work of art?

6) What will the cost of maintaining the installation be?

7) Further comments.

8) Name, address, e-mail. (We shall not publish or pass on the address data
in any form - this information will only be used by us for internal
archiving and to make contact if necessary.)

The concept should not be more than 20 pages. Images, sketches, etc. can be
sent in an attachment.

One of the concepts should be realised at the Innovation Center.

The following resources are available for the realisation of the media art

Artist's fee: approximately DM 35,000
Technical equipment and materials: up to DM 25,000 per site

The Fraunhofer IAO employs a number of IT & Internet specialists. These
specialists could support the realisation phase, if asked for by the winner.
Details have to be discussed.

Please inform us by April 28, 2000 whether you wish to take part in the
The closing date for concepts is June 16, 2000.

By e-mail to:
The following formats are allowed: Word 97, PowerPoint 97, HTML without
frames, JPEG pictures. Attachments should be no bigger than 1 MB, larger
files should be split into several e-mails.

About the E-Business Innovation Center

The E-Business Innovation Center (EBIC) provides consultative support and
information about the integration of electronic media in business processes
and develops applications and example solutions.
The main objective of the E-Business Innovation Center is to demonstrate
ways in which e-business can be used to the benefit of companies. The EBIC
approaches this task by demonstrating concrete solutions for the use of
Internet technologies for selected applications areas such as the
implementation of virtual companies, new procurement methods or the use of
"virtual reality" processes for product presentation purposes. Information
about the current state of the art such as networking and encoding/secure
technologies is also provided. 
The requisite know-how has been acquired and deepened by the five
collaborating Fraunhofer Institutes

           Fraunhofer IAO in Stuttgart, 
           Fraunhofer ESK in Munich, 
           Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt, 
           Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen and
           Fraunhofer IPK in Berlin

during the course of actual practice-related projects so that solutions can
be found and elaborated for any issue relating to e-business by bundling
individual competences.
The Fraunhofer intranet enables the E-Business Innovation Center to be
decentralized across the Institutes' five locations and example solutions to
be demonstrated at each location.
The Innovation Center is also involved in the field of new media art
organising  exhibitions and documentation.

Net Art Guide

As artists engaged in the field of Net art we would like to invite you to
publish your work at no cost in the Fraunhofer Society's Net Art Guide.

The Fraunhofer Society's E-Business Innovation Center publishes a Net Art
Guide which documents artists and projects on the Internet. 

The Fraunhofer Society is the leading organisation for applied research in
Germany and aims to promote public awareness of online art with its Net Art
Guide. This guide also offers you the opportunity of reaching a wider circle
of art aficionados for your projects.
The Net Art Guide is entirely non-commercial and publishes a free catalogue.

The Net Art Guide will be appear on the Internet and in print in both
English and German and should, as far as possible, reflect the very latest
state of play. The idea is to make art on the Internet better known and
easier to find. 

The aim of the Guide is to provide an all-inclusive exposé of the diversity
of art forms on the Net and it will not promote a particular type of art but
will document the whole gamut of contemporary art. An important feature of
the Guide will be to provide artists themselves with the opportunity of
talking about their work and providing background information.

All entries in the Guide are free - the only condition attached is that you
send us a completed questionnaire. A returned questionnaire shall be
interpreted as expressing the artist's consent to having screenshots of his
or her pages published in the Net Art Guide. (Size of printed screenshots:
approximately 7 x 5 cm or 12 x 9 cm). Alternatively, you can also send your
own screenshots or other material to the Guide editors. (Screenshots:
600x800 pixels as attachment, format: .jpg , zipped.bmp or .tif). Galley
proofs in PDF format can be sent on request.

The printed version of the Guide will probably appear in the middle of 2000.
Three complementary artist's copies will be sent to all participants.
Further copies will be available on request at cost price plus postage.

The press deadline is: April 28, 2000. Please complete the questionnaire so
that information about you can be published in the Net Art Guide and return
your answers to:

Entries marked * are optional.

First name, surname:
Zip / postal code*:
Year of birth:
Also optional: A portrait photo of the artist (as attachment in .jpg ,
zipped.bmp or .tif format)

1)Vita and artistic development: (max. 100 words)
3)Brief outline of main focus of your work: (max. 100 words)

Describe one or two of your projects
4) Web address:
5) Title:
6) Contents of work, background: (max. 200 words)
7) How has the work been implemented? (HTML, Javascript, Java, etc.):
8) Is the Net art work (or has it been) expanded by a local installation?
(video, installation, etc.):
9) Year of origin:
10) Can the work be viewed on the Internet? Yes/no   If so, is access public
or only with user identification?
11) Can the work be purchased? Yes/no (price?)

Do you know any other Net artists? 
Web addresses:

The editors of the Net Art Guide reserve the right to edit and cut material.

We shall not publish or pass on the following address data in any form
(unless already entered above) - this information will only be used by us
for internal archiving and to make contact if necessary.

Rome, Italy, April 11 2000 - The prizes of the IV edition of the
Pirelli INTERNETional Award, the international multimedia
competition launched by Pirelli in 1996 and carried out entirely
on the Internet, have been assigned today in Rome. The ceremony
was attended by Carlo Buora, General Director of Pirelli S.p.A.,
Umberto Colombo, President of the Award's Jury, Giorgio Fossa,
President of the Italian Confederation of Industry "Confindustria"
and Valerio Calzolaio, vice-Minister for the Environment. 

"The INTERNETional Award", stressed Carlo Buora, "gives a valuable
contribution to the online diffusion of scientific culture, and is
an example of Pirelli's unceasing attention to the 'Web
Revolution'. A primary interest confirmed by the e-Pirelli
Project, aimed at strengthening the Group's leadership in the
world of hi-tech and the new 'e-conomy' with the enhancement of
competitiveness and the creation of value for shareholders, thus
re-shaping traditional management processes through new 'on-line'

               European Media Art Festival
                   3 - 7 May 2000

       (First Part: English Text / Second Part: German Text)

>From 3 to 7 May 2000 the EUROPEAN MEDIA ART FESTIVAL once again
>presents a cross section of the variety of innovative and
>experimental media art. Productions by internationally renowned
>artists will be shown as well as works by creative young talents
>who stand out with their inventiveness and their joy in creating
>unconventional images. 

Around 1500 works from Europe, North and South America, Asia and
Australia were submitted to the different sections of the EUROPEAN
MEDIA ART FESTIVAL - more than ever before. The experimental and
innovative aesthetic concepts of the 230 films, videos,
installations, performances, CD-ROMs and Internet works selected
for the festival give a fascinating insight into the //now/future
of media art. This year the main focus is on the thrilling
symbiosis of light (projections), movement and music, as well as
the discussion on our sample and remix culture.

film and video 
The EMAF presents 134 productions in the international selection
lasting from one minute up to full-length films and videos. Apart
from the classic themes of love and death authors tend to
orientate themselves on classic avant-garde models. Image and
sound can technically be considered equal and the abstract visuals
often go hand in hand with modern soundscapes and samples. Thus,
they form the connecting link between this years's retrospective
and the festival's VEEJAY-GROOVE.  Everyone is on tenterhooks
awaiting this year's decision of the AG der Filmjournalisten, the
association of film journalists traditionally who award the German
Film Criticism Prize to the best German experimental film and
video production of the year.

Len Lye born in New Zealand 1901, is known as a famous figure in
experimental cinema as well as a leading kinetic sculptor and
innovative theorist, painter and writer. He was a pioneer of
`direct film´, made without a camera or other technical devices by
painting and scratching images directly onto the
celluloid-material. This retrospective gives a general overview of
his experimental film work, his life and his ambitious sculptural
work, which he worked on until his death in New York in 1980. 

video-café and video-gallery 
The video café offers the chance to watch all international works
on video. The video gallery presents a thrilling selection of
European films and videos that were selected from the cooperating
festivals in Germany, Croatia, Netherlands, Portugal and
Switzerland and travel as a Travelling-Project to each festival.

electronic lounge 
Via numerous current CD-ROMs and websites EMAF's electronic lounge
gives the public the opportunity to keep up with the latest trends
in digital art.

The premiere of the performance Med Machine will be presented in
Osnabrück by Jessica Levy, Sean Tuan John and Bernd Terstegge. Med
Machine is an erotic laboratory, in which images from medicine,
science, technology and sadomasochism plus old computers will be
deconstructed in a spectacular fashion. With playful irony video
images, computer animations, digital loops and theatrical elements
are manipulated live.

european digital visions 
The congress accompanies the festival and asks decisive questions
about the way our mediatised society views itself culturally. It
gives insight into the latest media developments and projects. The
symposium Körperschnitt & BodyScan focuses on the body's real and
virtual dimensions while New Digital Formats presents new digital
media projects.

Körperschnitt & BodyScan 
With the overpowering victory of old and new mass media like
television and the Internet individual identity as  inscribed in
humanism is disappearing rapidly. The individual happily immerses
himself into the interface of global virtuality and experiences
himself as an oscillating variety: "We are interfaces completely
exposed to input and output", observes the Swiss cultural
philosopher and writer Gerhard Johann Lischka.

Together with the media theoreticians and artists Thomas
Feuerstein, Katharina Gsöllpointner, Ursula Hentschläger and
Stefan Weber, Gerhard Johann Lischka will discuss the liberating
and captivating aspects of an extensive media osmosis: Are we
threatened to forget our real body because of all these virtual
experiences? How far are we into the age of technology and to what
extend is our body already dependent on technology? Are there no
limits to the deconstruction of our bodies? Where do we cross the
line and  only indulge in what Stefan Weber describes as "the joy
of immortality": "To escape the current dialectics of hating our
body and body fetishism I am eager to discard my mortal body and
to live as a sample, cut & paste body forever"?

new digital formats 
The digitalisation of the media opens endless possibilities to new
formats, contents and distribution. Thus, the EMAF has initiated
the European Digital Media Network (EDMN), a project sponsored by
the EU, that will install a European media chanel on
web-television. The concrete realisation will be discussed during
the congress by members of ten European countries. In addition, a
series of interesting cultural projects will be presented, for
example i2TV, an interactive Internet telvevision project
developed by Mars Lab of GMD, Bonn, presented by Jasminko Novak
and Wolfgang Strauss, the online Encyclopaedia New Media created
by the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and
the Centre of Contemporary Art in Geneva, presented by Christine
van Assche , or the web-project Digital Film-Festival from San
Francisco, introduced by Jonathan Wells.

David Guez and Anais Lemignan, Paris, will present the project
TV-ART.Net, which as a web-TV project has a special focus on arts
and culture. New projects of the Ponton Media Art Lab, Hannover
will be presented by Benjamin Heidersberger.  Cross plattform
projects and the development of interfaces between interactive
media, the web and TV are the thematical focus of a presentation
by Susan Kennard from the Banff Centre of the Arts, Canada.

Permanent Flux presented by the publishers Yariv Alter Fin and
Bastian Lips, Amsterdam, shows the perspectives of four multimedia
insiders Laurie Anderson, Siegfried Zielinski, Paul Garrin and
Paul Evers on past, present and future of multimedia art.

student forum 
Do you prefer virtual reality? Or do you prefer the realistic
reality?   In both cases this year's film and video selection in
the student forum is a good choice: refreshing and unusual
productions ranging from the Wild West to parallel worlds invite
you to linger.   The exhibition of installations also offers an
experience between dream and brutal fact - is it real or isn't it?
Exciting new productions from German and European students are
awaiting to be discovered.

exhibition 3.-28. may 2000 The exhibition corresponds in varied
aspects to this year's festival motto //now/future. The exhibited
works express their vision of media art in a fresh and innovative
way. They point to a future that is influenced by infinite data
spaces, biogenetics and spare time as work and/or the purpose in

The interactive multimedia installation Text Rain by Romy Achituv
and Camille Utterbeck from New York will be shown as a European
premiere where the borders between reality and magic become
blurred. Words and texts come down like rain on the screen. Using
his body as an "interface" the viewer can catch the symbols,
balance them on his head, arms or hands and create a new order: in
this installation "writing" becomes a physical act.

Arrival - Departure by Bjørn Melhus interprets the future body as
an androgynous double being that was conceived and animated in the
sexless cyberspace. "Raum-Möbel" Séparée by Stefanie Klekamp
invites the viewer to a very intimate but voyeristic observation
of a female body.

The Kunsthalle Dominikanerkirche will exhibit two exceptional
works by the French artist Pierrick Sorin called  Title variable
No.2 and Pierrick coupe des boits, plus the installation Mother
Mary by the American artist Gregory Barsamian. In addition the
following works will be exhibited in the Kunsthalle
Dominikanerkirche: Wie heißt Du? - Ivana by Wiebke Grösch and
Frank Metzger, A Brief Flash by Theo Lenders, Metathesis by Ben
Owen-Jones, Statement by Robert Hutter, Electric Shrom by Antenne
Springborn and the ZKM produced work Small Fish by Kiyoshi
Furukawa, Masaki Fujihata and Wolfgang Münich.

With the project Die Luft über dem Toaster Norbert Schliewe
presents the interface of analog and digital recording media in a
temporary media lab.

Optiballs by Heiko Hansen can be seen as a consequent development
of office health balls in the last ten years. The balls start to
glow  when you use them, and depending on the movements of the
person sitting on them the colours change.

Together with Osnabrück's EXPO-Kultur-Sommer the EMAF will realize
Wartesignale by Mina Hagedorn and Heiko Hansen, an interactive
light installation that will be installed in the bus terminal in
front of Osnabrück's central station.

For the first time the EMAF will award  the OLB-Medienkunstpreis.
This media art prize is worth a total of DM 8000. Two exceptional
works from the sections video, computer and multimedia
installations will be chosen. 

The criteria are first of all the inventive artistic approach and
the seismographical feeling for new developments in our mediatised
society. Monika Fleischmann (GMD, Bonn), Katharina Gsöllpointner
(Uni Salzburg) and Heiner Holtappels (Monte Video/TBA, Amsterdam)
will be on the jury panel.

>From 14 April to 12 May the EUROPEAN MEDIA ART FESTIVAL  presents
the innovative crossover of media art and dance floor projects in
a series of events  held in Amsterdam, Osnabrück, Wilhelmshaven
and Berlin. VEEJAY-GROOVE picks up a trend that is clearly taking
shape in the capital club scene: the expansion of conventional DJ
club culture to a multimedia event.  The virtuoso use of video
tapes and computer animation create constantly changing visual
spaces and make the club audience the oscillated centre of a
digital piece of art.
After the starting event on 14 April in Amsterdam's legendary
Melkweg, an especially redesigned warehouse in Osnabrück's harbour
will be the central meeting place for the international DJ and VJ
avant-garde on 6 May. For the first time, DJ Spooky from New York
and Alec Empire will fight a DJ-VJ battle with their VJs Art Jones
and Philipp Virus. Further party highlights will be the London
formation The Herbaliser from the independent label Ninja Tune, as
well as Erobique who is famous for his bombastic home organ sound
and DJ Koze, recently nominated Best DJ by Spex readers.   The VJ
group Lichtsport will design the Osnabrücker Hellmann-Halle using
wide screen projections, as well as numerous video projectors,
mixing desks, turntables and live cameras. 

Simultaneously with the event in Osnabrück, a Parisian Night will
be held in Wilhelmshaven's Pumpwerk. The French techno star Kid
Loco and the DJs Lab Insect and Automat will perform live. The VJ
association Skwa'x & Larsen-Family, the found footage artists Labs
as well as the rave dance group Les Asteroides will make sure the
night will be a visual spectacle.   For now the last VeeJay-Groove
event will be held in Berlin's Maria am Ostbahnhof with the
Terranova DJ Set, FM Einheit/Gry and the VJs monitor automatique,
Rainer Remake, Dura Lux and many more. 

On the website the whole event can be
experienced live as interactive Internet video stream.   On 29
July a three hour festival documentary  can be seen on the German
television programme N3-Fernseh-Night, which will be produced by
the European Media Art Festival in cooperation with the College of
Art and Media in Cologne.

Other programmes yet to be finalized will be listed in the
festival programme (appearing 16. April 2000), which will be sent
on  request.  A catalogue will be published at the beginning of
the festival.

               European Media Art Festival
                   3 - 7 May 2000

Vom 3. bis zum 7. Mai 2000 präsentiert das EUROPEAN MEDIA ART
FESTIVAL wieder einen Querschnitt durch die Vielfalt innovativer
und experimenteller Medienkunst. Produktionen international
renommierter und bekannter Künstler werden dabei ebenso vertreten
sein, wie Arbeiten aus den Kreativ-Laboren junger Talente, die
sich durch ihren Ideenreichtum sowie ihre Lust am Gestalten
unkonventioneller Bilder auszeichnen. 

Rund 1500 Einreichungen aus Europa, Nord- und Südamerika, Asien
und Australien sind für die einzelnen Sparten des EUROPEAN MEDIA
ART FESTIVALS eingegangen - so viel wie nie zuvor. Die 230 für das
Festival ausgewählten Filme und Videos, Installationen und
Performances sowie CD-ROM- und Internet-Arbeiten eröffnen mit
ihren Experimenten und innovativen ästhetischen Konzepten
spannende Einblicke in das //now/future der Medienkunst. Zentrale
Arbeitsfelder sind dabei in diesem Jahr die spannende Symbiose von
Licht (-Projektionen), Bewegung und Musik sowie die
Auseinandersetzung mit unserer Sample- und Remix-Kultur. 

film und video Im internationalen Auswahlprogramm stellt das EMAF
134 Produktionen vor, die vom einminütigen Animationsfilm bis zu
abendfüllenden Filmen und Videos reichen. Tendenziell läßt sich
feststellen, dass die Autoren sich neben ewig gültigen Themen wie
der Liebe und dem Tod wieder stärker an den Vorbildern der
klassischen Avantgarde orientieren. Formal stehen Bild und Ton in
einem gleichberechtigten Verhältnis und häufig sind die abstrakten
Visuals mit zeitgenössischen Soundscapes und Samples verbunden.
Damit bilden sie auch ein Bindeglied zwischen der diesjährigen
Retrospektive und dem VeeJay-Groove des Festivals.   Gespannt sein
darf man auch in diesem Jahr wieder auf die Entscheidung der AG
der Filmjournalisten, die auf dem EMAF traditionell den Preis der
deutschen Filmkritik für die beste deutsche experimentelle Film-
oder Videoproduktion des Jahres vergibt. 

retrospektive Len Lye, 1901 in Neuseeland geboren, ist eine der
berühmtesten Figuren im experimentellen Film. Zudem gilt er als
einer der führenden Künstler im Bereich kinetischer Skulpturen
sowie als innovativer Theoretiker, Maler und Schriftsteller. Len
Lye war der Pionier des "direkten Films", indem er ohne Kamera
oder andere technische Apparaturen Bilder direkt auf das
Filmmaterial malte oder kratzte. Die diesjährige
EMAF-Retrospektive gibt sowohl einen umfassenden Überblick auf
sein experimentelles Film-Werk als auch auf sein Leben und seine
ehrgeizigen skulpturalen Arbeiten, mit denen er sich bis zu seinem
Tod 1980 in New York beschäftigte. 

video-café und video-galerie Das Video-Café bietet die
Möglichkeit, sich alle Beiträge des internationalen Programms
individuell auf Video anzusehen. Die Video-Galerie präsentiert
eine spannende Auswahl europäischer Film- und Videoarbeiten, die
von den kooperierenden Festivals in Deutschland, Italien,
Kroatien, Niederlande, Portugal und der Schweiz zusammengestellt
wurde und als "Travelling-Project" zu den Festivals reist. 

electronic lounge In der Electronic Lounge bietet das EMAF seinen
Besuchern mit zahlreichen aktuellen CD-ROMs und Web-Sites die
Gelegenheit, sich umfassend über die neuesten Tendenzen in der
digitalen Kunst zu informieren. 

performance Als Premiere wird in Osnabrück die Performance Med
Machine mit Jessica Levy, Sean Tuan John und Bernd Terstegge
präsentiert. Med Machine ist ein erotisches Labor, in dem Images
aus dem Medizin-, Wissenschafts-, Technologie und
Sado-Maso-Bereich sowie alte Computer spektakulär dekonstruiert
werden. Unter dem Flair des Ironisch-Spielerischen kommen hier
live manipulierte Videobilder, Computer-Animationen, digitale
Loops und theatralische Elemente zum Einsatz.

kongress european digital visions Begleitend zum Festival stellt
der Kongress die entscheidenden Fragen zum kulturellen
Selbstverständnis unserer mediatisierten Gesellschaft und
verschafft Einblicke in die neuesten Medienentwicklungen und
-projekte. Während auf dem Symposium Körperschnitt & BodyScan der
Körper in seinen realen und virtuellen Dimensionen im Fokus des
Interesses steht, stellt New Digital Formats neue Projekte aus dem
Bereich der digitalen Medien vor.   Körperschnitt & BodyScan Mit
dem überwältigenden Siegeszug der alten und neuen Massenmedien wie
TV und Internet löst sich die im Humanismus festgeschriebene
Identität des Individuums rapide auf. Lustvoll taucht der Einzelne
in die Schalt- bzw. Schnittstellen globaler Virtualität ein und
erfährt sich als oszillierende Vielfalt: "Wir sind rundum
offengelegte Schnittstellen für Input und Output" konstatiert der
Schweizer Kulturphilosoph und Schriftsteller Gerhard Johann
Lischka.   Zusammen mit den Medientheoretikern und -künstlern
Thomas Feuerstein, Katharina Gsöllpointner, Ursula Hentschläger
und Stefan Weber wird Gerhard Johann Lischka die befreienden und
fesselnden Aspekte einer umfassenden medialen Osmose diskutieren:
Drohen wir vor lauter virtuellen Erlebnissen unseren realen Körper
zu vergessen? Inwieweit wohnen wir schon im Körper der Technik und
inwieweit wohnt die Technik bereits in unserem Körper? Sind der
"Dekonstruktion" des Körpers Grenzen gesteckt und wann
überschreiten wir die letzte Borderline und frönen, wie Stefan
Weber, der "Lust auf Unsterblichkeit": "Als Ausweg aus der
gegenwärtigen Dialektik von Körper-Verachtung und
Körper-Fetischisierung möchte ich endlich meinen sterblichen
Körper abstreifen: als body sample, cut & paste-Körper ewig

New Digital Formats Die Digitalisierung der Medien eröffnet eine
ungeheure Vielzahl von neuen Formaten, Inhalten und
Distributionsmöglichkeiten. So hat das EMAF das als EU-Projekt
geförderte European Digital Media Network (EDMN) initiiert, mit
dem ein europäischer Medienkanal im Bereich des Web-TV etabliert
werden soll. Die konkrete Umsetzung wird auf dem Kongress von
Teilnehmern aus zehn europäischen Ländern diskutiert.
Darüberhinaus werden hier eine Reihe von weiteren interessanten
Kultur-Projekten vorgestellt - u.a. ein vom Mars Lab der GMD,
Bonn, unter dem Namen i2TV  entwickeltes interaktives Internet-TV,
vorgestellt von Jasminko Novak und Wolfgang Strauss, die vom
Centre Pompidou, Paris, usammen mit dem Museum Ludwig in Köln und
dem Zentrum für Gegenwartskunst in Genf erstellte online
Enzyklopädie Neue Medien präsentiert von Christine van Assche,
oder das Web-Projekt Digital Film-Festival aus San Francisco,
vorgestellt von Jonathan Wells. 

David Guez und Anais Lemignan, Paris, stellen TV-ART.NET vor, das
als Web-TV besonders auf den Kunst- und Kulturbereich ausgerichtet
ist. Neue Projekte des Ponton Media Art Lab, Hannover, werden von
Benjamin Heidersberger vorgestellt.  Cross Plattform Entwicklungen
an den Schnittstellen von interaktive Medien, Internet und TV sind
Thema einer Präsentation von Sarah Diamond vom Banff Centre for
the Arts in Kanada.

Permanent Flux, vorgestellt von den Herausgebern Yariv Alter Fin
und Bastiaan Lips, Amsterdam, stellt die Sicht von vier Autoren,
Laurie Anderson, Siegfried Zielinski und Paul Evers über
Geschichte, Gegenwart und Zukunft der Medienkunst vor student
forum Bevorzugen Sie die virtuelle Realität? Oder doch eher die
reale Realität?  In beiden Fällen ist die diesjährige Film- und
Videomischung des Student Forums eine gute Wahl: erfrischende und
ungewöhnliche Produktionen zwischen Wildem Westen und parallelen
Welten laden zum Verweilen ein!   Einen Aufenthalt zwischen Traum
und knallharter Tatsache verspricht auch die Ausstellung von
Installationen - ist es wirklich real? Oder nicht?   Spannende
neue Produktionen von Studenten aus Deutschland und Europa warten
darauf, entdeckt zu werden.
ausstellung 3.-28. mai 2000 In vielfältigen Bezügen zum
diesjährigen Festival-Motto //now/future steht die Ausstellung.
Präsentiert werden Arbeiten, die mit frischen Ideen ihre Visionen
medialer Kunst ausdrücken und in eine Zukunft weisen, die geprägt
ist von unendlichen Datenräumen, Biogenetik und Freizeit als
Arbeit und Lebenszweck.   Als Europapremiere zeigen wir die
interaktive Multimedia-Installation Text Rain von Romy Achituv und
Camille Utterbeck aus New York, in der die Grenzen des Realen und
Magischen ineinander verschwimmen. Auf der Leinwand fallen Worte
und Texte wie Regen nieder. Der Zuschauer kann die Zeichen mit
seinem Körper auffangen, auf dem Kopf, den Armen oder Händen
balancieren und in neue Ordnungen bringen: "Schreiben" wird in
dieser Installation zu einer physischen Handlung. 

Arrival - Departure von Bjørn Melhus interpretiert den Körper der
Zukunft als androgynes Doppelwesen, das im geschlechtslosen Raum
des Cyberspace erzeugt und zum Leben erweckt wurde. Das
"Raum-Möbel" Séparée von Stefanie Klekamp lädt den Betrachter zu
einer sehr intimen und doch voyeuristischen Betrachtung eines
weiblichen Körpers ein. 

Neben zwei herausragenden Arbeiten des französischen Künstlers
Pierrick Sorin Title variable No. 2 und Pierrick coupe des bois
und der Installation Mother Mary des Amerikaners Gregory Barsamian
werden in der Kunsthalle Dominikanerkirche noch  folgende Arbeiten
gezeigt: Wie heißt Du? - Ivana von Wiebke Grösch und Frank
Metzger; A Brief Flash von Theo Lenders; Metathesis von Ben
Owen-Jones; Statement von Robert Hutter, Electric Shroom von
Antenne Springborn sowie die am ZKM produzierte Arbeit Small Fish
von Kiyoshi Furukawa, Masaki Fujihata und Wolfgang Münch. 

In dem Projekt Die Luft über dem Toaster stellt Norbert Schliewe
in einem temporären Medialab die Schnittstellen von analogen und
digitalen Aufzeichnungsmedien vor. 

Optiballs von Heiko Hansen kann als konsequente Weiterentwicklung
der Büro-Gesundheitsbälle des letzten Jahrzehnts gelten. Bei
Benutzung beginnen sie zu leuchten, und entsprechend der Drehung
des Sitzenden wechseln sie ihre Farbe. 

Mit Wartesignale von Mina Hagedorn und Heiko Hansen realisiert das
EMAF in Zusammenarbeit mit dem EXPO-Kultur-Sommer der Stadt
Osnabrück eine interaktive Lichtinstallation im Bus- Terminal vor
dem Osnabrücker Hauptbahnhof. 

OLB-Medienkunstpreis In diesem Jahr wird vom EMAF erstmals der mit
insgesamt 8000 DM dotierte OLB-Medienkunstpreis verliehen.
Ausgezeichnet werden zwei herausragende Arbeiten aus dem Bereich
der Video- und Computer- sowie Multimedia-Installationen.   Als
Kriterien zählen insbesondere innovative künstlerische Ansätze
sowie das seismographische Gespür für neue Entwicklungen in
unserer mediatisierten Gesellschaft.   Die Mitglieder der Jury
sind Monika Fleischmann (GMD, Bonn), Katharina Gsöllpointner (Uni
Salzburg) und Heiner Holtappels (Monte Video/TBA, Amsterdam). 

veejay-groove Mit VeeJay-Groove präsentiert das European Media Art
Festival vom 14.4.-12.5. auf der Event-Achse
Amsterdam-Osnabrück-Wilhelmshaven-Berlin innovative Projekte im
Spannungsfeld von Medienkunst und Dancefloor.  VeeJay-Groove
greift einen Trend auf, der sich in den Clubs der Metropolen immer
deutlicher herauskristallisiert: Die Ausweitung herkömmlicher
DJ-Clubkultur zu einem multimedialen Erlebnisraum. Unter dem
virtuosem Einsatz von Videotapes und Computeranimationen  sich
ständig verändernde "visual spaces" werden die Clubbesucher in das
oszillierende Zentrum eines digitalen Gesamtkunstwerks gerückt.

Nach einem Event-Auftakt am 14. April im legendären Amsterdamer
Melkweg wird der VeeJay-Groove am 6. Mai in einer ehemaligen,
eigens für dieses Event hergerichteten Lagerhalle am Osnabrücker
Hafen zum zentralen Treffpunkt der internationalen DJ- und
VJ-Avantgarde: DJ Spooky aus New York und Alec Empire werden sich
gemeinsam mit ihren VJs Art Jones und Philipp Virus erstmalig eine
kombinierte DJ-VJ-Battle liefern.  Weitere Highlights der Party
sind die Londoner Formation The Herbaliser vom Independent-Label
Ninja Tune, der für seinen schwülstigen Heimorgelsound berühmte
Erobique sowie der erst jüngst von den Spex-Lesern zum besten DJ
gewählte DJ Koze. Die Osnabrücker Hellmann-Halle wird durch die
VJ-Gruppe Lichtsport gestaltet und mit mehreren Großleinwänden
sowie einer Vielzahl von Videoprojektoren, Mischpulten, Turntables
und vernetzten Live-Kameras ausgestattet.

Zeitgleich zum Osnabrück-Event  findet im Wilhelmshavener Pumpwerk
eine Pariser Nacht statt. Hier stehen neben dem französischen
Techno-Star Kid Loco, die Szene-DJs Lab Insect und Automat auf dem
Programm. Zum visuellen Spektakel wird die Nacht durch das
VJ-Assoziation SkwaŒx & Larsen-Family, die Found-Footage-Artisten
Labs sowie die Rave-Dance-Truppe Les Asteroides.

Seinen vorläufigen Abschluß findet der VeeJay-GROOVE in der
Berliner Location Maria am Ostbahnhof mit dem Terranova DJ Set, FM
Einheit/Gry sowie den VJs monitor automatique, Rainer Remake, Dura
Lux und vielen anderen.

Auf der Website wird der gesamte Event zudem
live als  interaktiver Internet-Video-Stream zu erleben sein. Am
29.Juli folgt in einer N3-Fernseh-Night eine dreistündige
Festivaldokumentation, die vom European Media Art Festival in
Kooperation mit der Kunsthochschule für Medien (Köln) erstellt

Weitere Programmpunkte sind in Vorbereitung und können dem
Programmheft (Erscheinungsdatum 16. April 2000), das auf Wunsch
zugesandt wird, entnommen werden.  Zum Festival erscheint ein

Hi -

I want to invite you to join the Alchemind Society.

The Alchemind Society ( is a new nonprofit 
organization working in the public interest to foster cognitive liberty 
-- the right of each individual to think independently, to use the full 
spectrum of his or her mind, and to engage in multiple modes of thought. 
Presently, the Alchemind Society is the world's only organization 
championing cognitive liberty. We believe that effective social policy 
for the third millennium must recognize a fundamental right of each 
person to apperceive the full-spectrum of his or her mind and to access 
a diversity of mental states.20

Our Board of Advisors includes: John Perry Barlow, Rick Doblin, Alex

As part of our mission, Alchemind Society members believe that national 
and international drug policy should accommodate law-abiding citizens 
who sincerely believe that wise and considered use of psychedelics, 
MDMA, and marijuana has assisted physical or mental healing, or has 
brought them spiritual, epistemological, creative
or productive insights that would otherwise have escaped them. We 
believe that the current laws outlawing psychedelics, MDMA, marijuana, 
and other cognitive enhancers violate the core of what it means to be 
Membership in the Society includes a one-year subscription to the

From: Bart Rutten <>

Dejan Sretenovic lecture on Media Art in Serbia

2 May 2000, 20.00 hrs, MonteVideo/Amsterdam

We would like to draw your attention to a special lecture by Dejan
Sretenovic, Director of the Centre for Contemporary Art in Belgrade (CCAB),
on the development of video/media art in the former Yugoslavia and Serbia.
This lecture will be given at the Netherlands Media Art Institute on May
2nd, 2000.

Dejan Sretenovic is currently regarded as one of the most important
contemporary curators and art theoreticians in Central Europe. In 1999,
Sretenovic organised the manifestation Video Art in Serbia, which gave a
unique overview of 30 years of video art in the former Yugoslavia. It will
be of no surprise to anyone that this overview showed the traces of a
turbulent history. Following on from this video-art project, Sretenovic
organised Reality Check, Serbian Art during Wartime
(, which explored the delicate
socio-cultural situation in Serbian art.

The self-reliant nature of Serbian video/media art is not just based on the
political situation. Due to the socio-economic and technological developments
in this country, Serbian video art has gone through a different development
than its ‘Western’ equivalent. These differences are caused, among other
things, by the relatively slight influence of television on culture until the
late 1980s, and by the unavailability of up-to-date technical equipment.
Sretenovic will delve into this history, and will focus on the current
flourishing situation.

The presentation focuses on media art projects produced in the last 5 years.
The main topic to be discussed is how media art reflects Serbian reality and
its media representations. The presentation includes CD Rom pieces by Milica
Tomic and Zoran Naskovski and videos by Apsolutno, Zoran Todorovic, Zoran
Naskovski, Dragana Zarevac, Pavle Cosic as well as excerpts from Serbian TV
coverage of the operation Allied Force and turbo-folk video clips. The project
Realty Check, produced by CCAB during the war, will be presented as well.

Twee Hoog Achter will open its doors at 20.00 h. The entrance fee will be
NLG 10.00, and we would recommend that you make your reservation by
