Subject: JMM - New Issue and Call for Papers

Dear colleagues

We would like to announce the Spring-Issue of
the JMM - The International Journal on Media
Management, available in Paper and Online-
Version (http://www.mediajournal.org).

The articles:

   Enrique Dans: Internet Newspapers: Are some
   more equal than others?
   Frank Habann: Management of Core Resources:
   The case of media enterprises.
   Margherita Pagani: Interactive Television:
   A model of analysis of business economic
   dynamics.
   Hugh Carter Donahue, Cory Allen, Elena Larsen:
   The Resolution of Digital Television: How
   HDTV and Must-Carry are hindering the return
   of the analog television spectrum.
   Markus Will: Why communications management?

You are invited to visit our website at
http://www.mediajournal.org, which will provide
full coverage of the Journal?s in-depth reporting
on current developments as well as the latest
trends in the new research field of media
management.
__________________________________________________

Currently we are in the process of preparing Issue
No. 3, (autumn 2000) of the JMM.

Deadline for paper-submission: August, 20. 2000

JMM focuses on the rich array of media related
issues brought about by rapid technological
developments in the media and communications
industries. Thus, we would like to remind you
that contributions are coming due.

The planned focus theme for the autumn issue
is related to legal issues of media management.

Additionally to this, the journal observes the
following issues closely:

  Strategic, managerial and organisational aspects
   of the media sector and the media industry

  Economics of traditional and new media in general

  evolution of the media industry and media industry
   segments

  technology, infrastructure, user behavior related
   to the changings in the media sector

  effects of new media on economy, society, politics,
   law and culture

Our goal is a close analysis of new industry structures,
organisational forms and critical competencies
developing as a result of reconfigurations in the
media value chain. We want to bring together academics
and industry figures to explore the transition from
>classic< to >new< media and identify the factors, which
will determine organizational success and economic
efforts in a fast changing and converging environment.

We are interested in receiving your submission to the
JMM. Articles which deal with one of the above issues
are more than welcome.

Please submit your paper to:
Media.Editors {AT} netacademy.org.


Please pass this message on to colleagues who may
also be interested.


Sincerely

Dörte Wittig
Executive Editor

Subject: INFORMATION FOR THE OTHER SIDES OF HERE
From: "mint77" <mint77 {AT} restlessculture.net>

INFORMATION FOR THE OTHER SIDES OF HERE : EXPOSURE #0001

SYNOPSIS:
--------------
8-12 participants stand on a blue plastic canvas in a semi-darkened room.
Floodlights turn on, bright as hell and synchronous with Techno-music
generated from an Apple I-Book. The participants dance, kick balloons around
and swig beer. The music stops intermittently along with a return to
semi-darkness whereupon the participants "fix" themselves perfectly still,
caught in mid-motion. A photographer then engages the participants with a
Polaroid camera and meticulously documents the situation as if it is a crime
scene. Polaroids fall out of the camera and onto the floor whereupon the
whole sequence of events repeats itself. Participants dance upon the
increasing accumulation of their own images.

On every third completion of the above sequence a selected participant is
given instructions via a CD-Walkman that must be followed outside the
boundaries of the blue plastic canvas.


NOTES:
--------------
1 Blue Plastic Canvas
The sky is sometimes blue and so is this particular canvas.  If we are to
dream the sky and canvas as analogous then this must also be a dream of
conflict because the canvas is waterproof and the sky is not... or possibly
nature is a limitless expression and technology is fixed precision. The
canvas like the sky serves as a frontier for energy focus.  A shallow depth
of field or "decreased sky" provides increased "active-energy" space e.g.,
the island of Manhattan as compared to Cedartown, Georgia.

10 Cases of Warm Budweiser
My father was a automobile mechanic and his favorite beer was Budweiser.  It
is unpleasant to drink warm Budweiser.  It is arguably more unpleasant to
drink Budweiser after securing an elevated class station.  Maybe in this
exposure the Budweiser acts as agent to accelerate group empathy and
increase intimacy. This exposure employs many commercially available items
because of the fine "exacting" qualities of mass production.  In this regard
EXPOSURE #0001 could be considered the "etiquette of transgression" easily
re-produced and employed by a large "cross-section" of the working and
middle class.

200 Birthday Party Balloons
Everyday is a birthday.  Every birthday is a beclouding of origin and
guarantor of death.  So then everyday is an event because of yesterday's
suspect remnants.   Everyday is an event because of  tomorrow's fickle
promise.

200 Polaroids
It is dangerous for images to fix too fast.  Maybe this "fast-fix" causes us
to forget more than the residual image allows us to remember.  So here we
dance upon former selves who look up at us like the dead asking us to
remember; a dystopian prompt to encourage re-collection as active resistance
to capital engendered movement and "progress".

8 Halogen Flood-Lights with Dimmer Switch
The primal stimulus of light and dark.  I think of the floodlights here as
the mass proliferation of all texts in the service of capital; an
"over-exposure".  With each cycle of this work darkness engenders the light
as temporal thus dynamic.  EXPOSURE #0001 re-issues the light with
"creative-vision".  A protocol to dream in the waking hours.  This retinal
play could cause us to notice in precise detail just where the edges where
the blue canvas becomes concrete floor.

1 Portable Walkman with Instructional Audio CD
This is a schizophrenia simulation for 2-3 selected participants.  The
participants hear voices in their heads prompting them into actions outside
the boundaries of the blue tarp.  Maybe this is a simple and direct
reference to faith.  Compelled into multiple actions without rational to
continue yet, we continue... then again maybe this is just S&M.

1 Apple I-Book Computer For Generating Techno Music
I'm into techno these days.  Techno is the audio expression of the machine.
Dancing = physical body and techno is good for dancing although technology
is usually not very good for the continuity of the physical body... back to
the blue canvas.

**** Help for serv {AT} konferencijos.lt:


This help message is being sent to you from the Majordomo mailing list
management system at serv {AT} konferencijos.lt.

This is version 1.94.5 of Majordomo.

If you're familiar with mail servers, an advanced user's summary of
Majordomo's commands appears at the end of this message.

Majordomo is an automated system which allows users to subscribe
and unsubscribe to mailing lists, and to retrieve files from list
archives.

You can interact with the Majordomo software by sending it commands
in the body of mail messages addressed to "serv {AT} konferencijos.lt".
Please do not put your commands on the subject line; Majordomo does
not process commands in the subject line.

You may put multiple Majordomo commands in the same mail message.
Put each command on a line by itself.

If you use a "signature block" at the end of your mail, Majordomo may
mistakenly believe each line of your message is a command; you will
then receive spurious error messages.  To keep this from happening,
either put a line starting with a hyphen ("-") before your signature,
or put a line with just the word

        end

on it in the same place.  This will stop the Majordomo software from
processing your signature as bad commands.

Here are some of the things you can do using Majordomo:

I.        FINDING OUT WHICH LISTS ARE ON THIS SYSTEM

To get a list of publicly-available mailing lists on this system, put the
following line in the body of your mail message to serv {AT} konferencijos.lt:

        lists

Each line will contain the name of a mailing list and a brief description
of the list.

To get more information about a particular list, use the "info" command,
supplying the name of the list.  For example, if the name of the list 
about which you wish information is "demo-list", you would put the line

        info demo-list

in the body of the mail message.

II.        SUBSCRIBING TO A LIST

Once you've determined that you wish to subscribe to one or more lists on
this system, you can send commands to Majordomo to have it add you to the
list, so you can begin receiving mailings.

To receive list mail at the address from which you're sending your mail,
simply say "subscribe" followed by the list's name:

        subscribe demo-list

If for some reason you wish to have the mailings go to a different address
(a friend's address, a specific other system on which you have an account,
or an address which is more correct than the one that automatically appears 
in the "From:" header on the mail you send), you would add that address to
the command.  For instance, if you're sending a request from your work
account, but wish to receive "demo-list" mail at your personal account
(for which we will use "jqpublic {AT} my-isp.com" as an example), you'd put
the line

        subscribe demo-list jqpublic {AT} my-isp.com

in the mail message body.

Based on configuration decisions made by the list owners, you may be added 
to the mailing list automatically.  You may also receive notification
that an authorization key is required for subscription.  Another message
will be sent to the address to be subscribed (which may or may not be the
same as yours) containing the key, and directing the user to send a
command found in that message back to serv {AT} konferencijos.lt.  (This can be
a bit of extra hassle, but it helps keep you from being swamped in extra
email by someone who forged requests from your address.)  You may also
get a message that your subscription is being forwarded to the list owner
for approval; some lists have waiting lists, or policies about who may
subscribe.  If your request is forwarded for approval, the list owner
should contact you soon after your request.

Upon subscribing, you should receive an introductory message, containing
list policies and features.  Save this message for future reference; it
will also contain exact directions for unsubscribing.  If you lose the
intro mail and would like another copy of the policies, send this message
to serv {AT} konferencijos.lt:

        intro demo-list

(substituting, of course, the real name of your list for "demo-list").

III.        UNSUBSCRIBING FROM MAILING LISTS

Your original intro message contains the exact command which should be
used to remove your address from the list.  However, in most cases, you
may simply send the command "unsubscribe" followed by the list name:

        unsubscribe demo-list

(This command may fail if your provider has changed the way your
address is shown in your mail.)

To remove an address other than the one from which you're sending
the request, give that address in the command:

        unsubscribe demo-list jqpublic {AT} my-isp.com

In either of these cases, you can tell serv {AT} konferencijos.lt to remove
the address in question from all lists on this server by using "*"
in place of the list name:

        unsubscribe *
        unsubscribe * jqpublic {AT} my-isp.com

IV.        FINDING THE LISTS TO WHICH AN ADDRESS IS SUBSCRIBED

To find the lists to which your address is subscribed, send this command
in the body of a mail message to serv {AT} konferencijos.lt:

        which

You can look for other addresses, or parts of an address, by specifying
the text for which Majordomo should search.  For instance, to find which
users at my-isp.com are subscribed to which lists, you might send the
command

        which my-isp.com

Note that many list owners completely or fully disable the "which"
command, considering it a privacy violation.

V.        FINDING OUT WHO'S SUBSCRIBED TO A LIST

To get a list of the addresses on a particular list, you may use the
"who" command, followed by the name of the list:

        who demo-list

Note that many list owners allow only a list's subscribers to use the
"who" command, or disable it completely, believing it to be a privacy
violation.

VI.        RETRIEVING FILES FROM A LIST'S ARCHIVES

Many list owners keep archives of files associated with a list.  These
may include:
- back issues of the list
- help files, user profiles, and other documents associated with the list
- daily, monthly, or yearly archives for the list

To find out if a list has any files associated with it, use the "index"
command:

        index demo-list

If you see files in which you're interested, you may retrieve them by
using the "get" command and specifying the list name and archive filename.
For instance, to retrieve the files called "profile.form" (presumably a
form to fill out with your profile) and "demo-list.9611" (presumably the
messages posted to the list in November 1996), you would put the lines

        get demo-list profile.form
        get demo-list demo-list.9611

in your mail to serv {AT} konferencijos.lt.

VII.        GETTING MORE HELP

To contact a human site manager, send mail to postmaster {AT} konferencijos.lt.
To contact the owner of a specific list, send mail to that list's
approval address, which is formed by adding "-approval" to the user-name
portion of the list's address.  For instance, to contact the list owner
for demo-list {AT} konferencijos.lt, you would send mail to demo-list-approval {AT} konferencijos.lt.

To get another copy of this help message, send mail to serv {AT} konferencijos.lt
with a line saying

        help

in the message body.

VIII.        COMMAND SUMMARY FOR ADVANCED USERS

In the description below items contained in []'s are optional. When
providing the item, do not include the []'s around it.  Items in angle
brackets, such as <address>, are meta-symbols that should be replaced
by appropriate text without the angle brackets.

It understands the following commands:

    subscribe <list> [<address>]
        Subscribe yourself (or <address> if specified) to the named <list>.
        
    unsubscribe <list> [<address>]
        Unsubscribe yourself (or <address> if specified) from the named <list>.
        "unsubscribe *" will remove you (or <address>) from all lists.  This
        _may not_ work if you have subscribed using multiple addresses.

    get <list> <filename>
        Get a file related to <list>.

    index <list>
        Return an index of files you can "get" for <list>.

    which [<address>]

    who <list>
        Find out who is on the named <list>.

    info <list>
        Retrieve the general introductory information for the named <list>.

    intro <list>
        Retrieve the introductory message sent to new users.  Non-subscribers
        may not be able to retrieve this.

    lists
        Show the lists served by this Majordomo server.

    help
        Retrieve this message.

    end
        Stop processing commands (useful if your mailer adds a signature).

Commands should be sent in the body of an email message to
"serv {AT} konferencijos.lt". Multiple commands can be processed provided
each occurs on a separate line.

Commands in the "Subject:" line are NOT processed.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact
"postmaster {AT} konferencijos.lt".

Art on the Net 2000 --- "Parody"
__________________________________________________________
"In modern times," Bakhtin notes, "the function of parody 
has become narrower and unproductive. Parody has grown 
feeble and its place in modern literature is insignificant". 
Today we laugh unilaterally, at people and at things. 
Ridicule of the serious words is everywhere, but much of 
parody's ancient complexity and strength has been lost.

"Art on the Net 2000," an online art festival sponsored by 
the Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts, Tokyo (MCMOGATK), 
is currently inviting artists to participate in this year's 
exhibition held under the theme "Parody."

MCMOGATK has been actively pursuing various relationships 
the Internet can have with art through Art on the Net, the 
world's first online open art competition, since its first 
show in 1995. We now see the growing use of the Internet 
as a space for art and in fact, "net art" has been featured 
in many cultural festivals around the world. We strongly 
feel now is the time to redefine the "potentials" of the 
Internet as a medium of communications." 

MCMOGATK will keep pursuing this fundamental question through 
Art on the Net. This year, the exhibition will be held in fall 
2000 and all are invited to participate in this project. Please 
read the application procedures and find application form on 
our site;

        http://art.by.arena.ne.jp/

The jurors of the "Art on the Net 2000" are; 

Shiroyasu Suzuki/Japan 
Professor at Tama Art University, poet and visual artist. 

Bernie Roehl/Canada 
Senior Software Developer at the Department of Electrical & 
Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo. VRML expert. 

Ingo Gunther/USA
Artist working in multi-fields, including video art and installation. 

Olga Shishko/Russia 
Critic and curator of media art. 

Tetsuo Kogawa/Japan *Director for the "Art on the Net"
Media critic, Professor of Communications at Tokyo Keizai University. 

Announcements regarding the exhibition, evaluation and exhibition 
of works will be done via the Internet as usual. The deadline 
for entries is 30 August 2000. The winners of prizes are scheduled 
to be announced in fall 2000.

We look forward to seeing your entries!

Dear friends,

at this time I would like to bring to your attention the updated informatio=
n
on the new Bauhaus Kolleg program 2000/2001. I would appreciate if you woul=
d
also be so kind to distribute this mail through your mailing lists to bring
it to the attention of a larger international group of people interested in
the design of the future of cities. If you have any questions I would be
glad to be at your service.

Bauhaus Kolleg 2
Event City

The second Bauhaus Kolleg, which begins in September 2000, will examine the
changes in architecture and the urban environment in an event-oriented
society.
The urban entertainment culture of the 21st century has spawned a host of
event worlds for shows, amusement and consumerism. Malls, theme parks,
amusement centers and events are symbols of the cultural change accompanyin=
g
the disintegration of the previously separate spheres of culture, politics,
society and business. The marketing of cities and regions with spectacular
presentations of history and culture and the redevelopment of city centers
to create event spaces for shopping and entertainment are an eloquent
expression of this development. In ever fewer cases is this process of urba=
n
reorganisation the product of town planning schemes devised by the public
authorities. The commercialisation of cities is being accompanied by a loss
of public space, increasing controls and a growing exclusion of the poor an=
d
destitute. The commercialisation of culture is celebrating its triumphal
march in the event city. Architecture, as an artistic product, is barely in
a position to hold its ground against the powerful flow of cultural goods.
It forms part of the window dressing which cities are using to generate an
image for themselves.

The second Bauhaus Kolleg will focus on the changes in the urban environmen=
t
brought about by the cultural revamping which cities are undergoing. It wil=
l
investigate and analyse the changed conditions in the development of the
urban environment in an event-oriented society with a view to drawing up
design strategies for an "event city beyond sprawl".


1st term  September 1st 2000 to November 30th 2000

"Event worlds=B2=20

Theory and method

The aim of the first term is to provide a comprehensive overview of the
development trends in culture, society, economics, planning and architectur=
e
in the event-oriented society. It will deal with the theory and history,
methodological access to and practical knowledge of the development of the
event city. The first term will be divided up into two blocks. The lectures
and seminars in the first block will provide an overview of the complexity
of the event city. The workshops in the second block will focus on methods
of studying and designing urban environments using the project location, th=
e
European quarter in Frankfurt, as an example. The teaching programme will b=
e
supplemented by excursions to urban event worlds in Germany and to the
project location.

"Urban spatial node=B2- an architectural blueprint

Program

Frankfurt am Main is planning to erect a new district, the European quarter=
,
around an urban entertainment center for shopping, entertainment and popula=
r
culture on disused railway sidings and a site not far from the exhibition
center. This project is one of the many examples of urban redevelopment
engineered by an alliance of private investors, trans-national companies an=
d
commercial architectural interests. The ensuing transfer of the center to a
homogenised, commercialised and controlled event world is the subject of
much discussion. The flashy shop window of a standardised urban future
clearly reflects a loss of urbanity.
The Bauhaus Kolleg will devise a model for an urban entertainment center in
the European quarter in Frankfurt as part of an architectural blueprint. It
will be based on an understanding of the urban event world as an "urban
spatial node", as a flexible structure providing an interfusion of local an=
d
global space, commercialised cultural events and everyday cultural
practices.

The 2. Trimester consists of two phases: exercise and design. The goal of
the exercises is a broadening of current design tools and approaches of
analysis as well as of design methods in architecture. This methodical
didactical approach in the direction of a broadened perception is based on =
a
changed role of architecture in the event city; a traditional analysis of
typology and infrastructure can provide the production conditions for
architecture only to a very limited degree.

Central to the exercises are two strategies: an intuitive playful and a
systematic approach. These strategies are applied to three levels of the
discourse, to the level of the city, the urban entertainment center, and to
the design strategy.

Exercises
Exercise 1: City Events

Excursion to Rotterdam and Lille

Exercise 2: Spatial structure of the event flow

Exercise 3: The architect as imagineer: from storyboard to architecture

Exercise 4: Design strategies within city images

Excursion to Frankfurt

3rd term -June 19th to September 14th 2001

"Artscapes" - art in practice

"Artscapes" is the term Arjun Appadurai applies to images of the here and
now, images on which works of art are based and from which they derive thei=
r
motivation. The suffix "-scape" refers to a recognition of the mobility of
images and to the connections and relations between them. Heterogeneous
cultural materials, scripts and images merge with one another to form urban
spatial nodes in the urban event spaces. Artscapes take up the short-circui=
t
between global flow and local images and the way they are changed and
exchanged. They characterize the movement between images and the
mass-cultural context of their production and provide an indication of the
changeability of meanings.
The Bauhaus Kolleg will make use of artistic interventions in the form of
artscapes to document the relations of visibility in the artificial
environment of the urban entertainment center. They will thus be operating
at the interface between what images in the city reveal and what remains
hidden behind the surface of the images

The 3. term is divided into 2 sections: central to the analysis is the imag=
e
research. Here the images that are at the base of the urban event spaces ar=
e
investigated. The research of image typologies will discover what logic of
representation is expressed, showing what is made visible and what remains
invisible. The goal is to create an archive of different forms of making
visible, of becoming an image or picture. This archive consists of three
material parts: the image that we created in ourselves, those images found
on site, as well as the collectively shared knowledge about these spaces.

The design process will use this reservoir of images: the different
possibilities of art practice will be examined through the use of a specifi=
c
medium or site.
