Subject: Conscientious Objection in Serbia

Lepa Mladjenovic of Belgrade Women in Black just ended her visit 
to the States (http://balkansnet.org/wib/stats/lepa.html). She left 
me "The Objection", magazine for conscientious objection and anti-
militarism, #6 from May 2000, published by Women in Black. The 
letters of young Serbs drafted against their will and sent to the 
frontline at various stages of the war, are striking. Little details that 
so far did not reach international public, or Serbian public for that 
matter. The magazine is available only in Serbian. I am going to 
translate one story and post it soon. I am curious if somebody else 
want to do the same. Drop me a line.

Subject: opening Shedhalle, July 1

Widerspenstige Praktiken
im Zeitalter von Informations- und Biotechnologien

Ausstellung Shedhalle Zuerich, 1. Juli bis 6. August 2000
http://www.thing.net/~tenacity

Beginn der Konferenz: Samstag, 1. Juli, 19 Uhr
Ausstellungseröffnung: 22 Uhr

Informations- und Biotechnologien spielen zunehmend eine universalisierende
Rolle und beeinflussen unsere Ideen von Subjektivitaet und (politischer)
Handlungsfaehigkeit. Auch die Kunstszene traegt diesen Prozessen Rechnung
und widmet sich vermehrt digitalen Themen. Unbeachtet bleibt dabei haeufig,
dass neue Technologien neue (alte) Ideologien und Monopolisierungen
transportieren.
»Widerspenstige Praktiken« praesentiert auf der Ebene von Ausstellung und
Diskussionen Projekte, MedienaktivistInnen, -künstlerInnen und
-theoretikerInnen, die in der digitalen Szene seit Jahren schon als
VertreterInnen eines produktiven und kritischen Engagements in Erscheinung
getreten sind.

»Widerspenstige Praktiken« zeigt auf, dass es einen avancierten Umgang mit
neuen Medien jenseits technodeterministischer Zwaenge gibt.

Getragen vom Soundsampling von Jennifer & Kevin Mc Coy, der
Ausstellungsarchitektur Lehti Kuwas und den einzelne Projekten versteht
sich die Ausstellung als Verkoerperung einer symbolisch-virtuellen Zone, in
der sich widerspenstige AgentInnen, bildhafte Datenstroeme und Maschinen
temporaer vernetzen.

Presentation of the book

FICTION RECONSTRUCTED

EASTERN EUROPE, POST-SOCIALISM and THE RETRO-AVANT-GARDE

Written by  MARINA GRZINIC, Ljubljana Slovenia

Published by Edition selene, Vienna, 2000

In ENGLISH, 200 pages with reproductions

June 24, 2000 (Saturday) at 18.00, Club Egoeast, Metelkova complex, No. 
0 (on the Metelkova street) Ljubljana

In the book FICTION RECONSTRUCTED the point of departure is a difference 
between Eastern and Western Europe that I try to conceptualize 
philosophically, insisting on a difference - a critical difference 
within and not a special classification method marking the process of 
grounding differences. This book can be perceived as a radical 
theorization of a particular (Eastern European) position; here 
positioning means repoliticization.

The first part of the book focuses on selected artistic projects and
concepts by Mladen Stilinovic (Zagreb), Kasimir Malevich (Belgrade, 
1986), and the group Irwin (NSK) (Ljubljana), which were developed in 
the territory of the former Yugoslavia, and continue to function, 
develop, and mutate. These projects are read via dialectic positioning 
(i.e., thesis, anti-thesis, and synthesis) within not only countries of 
the former Yugoslavia, but also Eastern Europe in general. They - not 
only visualize and conceptualize the processes of thought developed 
within new media and technology, but also conceptualize the system in 
itself and the operational logic of new media and technology. Within the 
framework and context of these works, it became possible to detect 
models of thought and perception, which allows one to question the 
visible and the political. Moreover, similar strategies are now being 
developed by new media technologies and interpreted philosophically and 
theoretically. Consequently, classical arts strategies and concepts have 
acquired a radically different meaning compared with this reversed media 
logic.

The second part of the book deals with political and ethical questions 
concerning processes of the de-visualization and re-articulation of 
space and time in relation to new media. The very process of negotiating 
the mutations of Post-Socialism requires the development of new visual 
and media strategies that problematize representation and 
self-representation. There is something very definite about the 
Post-Socialist 'Eastern European' condition condition - it produces a 
specific spectralization of representation, space and time. Set in 
relation to foreign Western European and American capital centers, the 
media events (i.e., virtual reality, the Internet, the 'media obsession' 
over the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina, etc.) literally metastasized from 
day to day, opening up innumerable interpretations. Grzinic treats new 
media in an attempt to re-define certain fundamental concepts in the 
history of philosophy and theory, notably the subject, real/virtual, 
(public and media) space, in relation to the real war in 
Bosnia-Herzegovina and the virtual war of the subject with its so-called 
double in virtual environments.

FICTION RECONSTRUCTED offers a very detailed inquiry into specific 
Post-Socialist art and media strategies.

description:
on sunday the 21st of may 2000 Kasper König, a famous and highly
recommended german art curator (expo 2000, documenta..)
Marin Fritz, an also well known austrian curator and Jessica Beer, she
is in charge of the final exhibition of the Academy of fine arts Vienna
and for pr belongings of the academy visited the Master class of Renee
Green to decide which artworks will be presented in the final exhibition

(presspreview: tuesday 20th of june 2000 at 1100h in the
morning;official opening speech at 20:30 h the same day) the class
suggested to ask the curator(Kasper König) two questions, before
starting with the inspection of the art works, question one dealt with
the political situation in Austria in connection with the final
exhibition, the question was if there was any concept or even a focus on

the political status quo in austria...question number two asked the
curator, what he personally thinks about that he has to look at more
than 300 artworks in a two and a half days period of time(!), and then
has to decide in an objective and distanced way, whether the art work is

"good" or "bad"...
it seemed that these two questions had been enough for him, he only said

"..ich halte ihre Fragen für absurd" stood up and left the class with
the words "..wenn ihr wollt dass ich kucken soll, dann holt ich rein,
ich habe keine lust auf solche sachen". the situation escalated, a nice
discussion with co-curator Martin Fritz and public relation women
Jessica Beer followed. What the curator didn´t know was that he had been

taped all the time by two hidden camerasin class. what came out is a
documentary parody of the day a person called Kasper König entered the
scene.

additional information:
during the exhibition time between the 20th of june 2000 and the 7th of
july 2000 there will be various actions campaigns
against the hierachy of the curator system especially connected with the

Performance Research

'Departures' - Information for Contributors

'Departures' will be Volume 6, Issue 1 of 'Performance Research' and is to
be edited by Claire MacDonald

Deadlines are as follows:
Proposals                       1st July,  2000
Finalised Material              15th October, 2000
Publication Date                Spring 2001

Performance Research is seeking submissions for issue 6:1, Departures,
which will open our sixth year of publication and begin a critical and
creative enquiry into travel. Departures will be the first of three related
issues which engage with the migrations of people, performance and
performance cultures, which we hope will generate writing around differing
geographies and histories of travel and travelling performance in a
diversity of written and visual forms.

The editors are interested in contributions from scholars, writers and
artists which engage with a variety of critical and artistic points of
departure, and ways of thinking about the idea of 'departures' in the
widest sense of the term - both actual and metaphorical - and about
possible 'departures' within a variety of sites  and contexts -
geographical, political, theoretical and artistic.

As well as essays, interviews and documentation, we are looking for
collaborations between artists and critics, work that extends the
possibilities of the visual page, that situates critical work within a
visual context, or has links to other sites, actual and possible, such as
performances, netcasts, web sites, radio and gallery installations.

Potential writers with tentative ideas are invited to discuss them with
Claire MacDonald, the issue editor,  in advance of submitting a formal
proposal. E-Mail: chmac {AT} erols.com

Please note that proposed submissions do not necessarily have to relate to
issue themes.  We actively welcome submissions on any area of performance
research, practice and scholarship.

Proposals and articles will be accepted on hard copy, disk or by e-mail and
should be sent to:

Clancy Pegg (Administrator)
Performance Research, Market Road, Cardiff, CF5 1QE, UK
e-mail: post {AT} perfres.demon.co.uk

Submission of an article to the journal will be taken to imply that it
presents original, unpublished work  not under consideration for
publication elsewhere.  By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that
the exclusive rights to reproduce and distribute the article have been
given to the publishers.

Subject: Interpol-The Art Exhibition Which Divided East and West

IRWIN, Moscow Art Magazin ter urednika vas vabijo na prestavitev nove
knjige

IRWIN, Moscow Art Magazin and editors would like to invite you to the
presentation of the new book


I N T ER P O L
The Art Exhibition Which Divided East and West

Uredila / Edited  by
Eda Cufer & Viktor Misiano

Izdala / Published by: IRWIN and Moscow Art Magazin


Predstavitev bo v soboto 24. junija ob 18.00 v klubu Egoeast, Metelkova
0, Ljubljana (bivša vratarnica vojašnice)

The presentation will take place on Saturday June 24 at 18.00 in the
club Egoeast, Metelkova 0, Ljubljana (very close to the exhibition place
of the Arteast 2000+ collection)

Today, Interpol is known mostly as the project where Alexander Brener
destroyed the work of art of Wenda Gu and where Oleg Kulik performed a
dog. And according to his role bit the spectators at the opening and, of
course, ended at the police station. Apart from this, Interpol is also
famous for an open letter, a document of protest, that some participants
of the project, the so-called "Western side," wrote against the attitude
of the members of the so-called Eastern side, and sent it to the world's
art community. So in the art world Interpol is probably also known as
the paradigmatic East-West issue project. How boring! The paradox,
however, is that when we, who created this project and participated at
it, finally leaving aside what came out of it, try to reconstruct the
narrative of what happened, inevitably have to conclude that our stories
are different, that our memory is unreliable, that there is no simple
solution to the problem.  This book is a collection of essays initiated
by the Interpol project.

					INVITATION


We would like to invite you to join the

SYNAPSE Online Forum
Beginning June 24 thorugh September, 2000
chaired by Kim Sawchuk,
co-moderated  by Sara Diamond, Jeanne Randolph and Tibor Vamos

SYNAPSE  an ongoing, online discussion intends to investigate
the changing perceptions of the human body due to implications of
recent innovations in the biosciences.

Regardless of age, sex, geographic location, income or
political beliefs - each and everyone of us is (or will be)
influenced by the new discoveries  that reshaped
biomedicine  in ways that could have been barely imagined
a decade ago. These new  discoveries (permeating our daily life)
are presenting fundamental challenges  to traditional societal
values, but can science and industry really tell the whole story?

We would appreciate your subscription to SYNAPSE
and are very much looking forward to your comments, questions and
active participation. For more project information please see
