<< Cultural Intelligence to the World >>

World-Information.Org is a trans-national cultural intelligence provider: 
a collaborative effort of cultural workers, artists, scientists and
technicians. 

Cultural intelligence gathers, evaluates and processes meta-information:
information about the foundations of Information Society. This includes
clear analysis and investigation of its societal, cultural, economic and
political potentials and dangers. 

Cultural intelligence acts as a balance to traditional military or economic
intelligence services that gather information to increase control, and
serves the public interest through citizen's empowerment and independence.
As accurate information is essential to optimal decisions, cultural
intelligence services compensate the public's lack of meta-information as
socio-political and cultural foundation for decision-making. 

To meet the public's need for high quality and accessible cultural
information and content, cultural intelligence provides information on
developments and probable courses of action in the infosphere. In the
tradition of the Enlightenment, cultural intelligence is an advocate of
citizen's rights of cultural freedom, freedom of opinion and expression,
communication and privacy. 

The services provided are designed to foster and protect the public sphere
and discourse as well as the variety and richness of cultural expressions
in a society increasingly determined by information and communication
technologies. 

By observing and analyzing enlightening cultural, socio-political,
technological and economical trends, culture intelligence counters
indoctrination and propaganda.

"SIMPLE SECURITY FOR COMPLEX NETWORKS"
Implementing Secure TCP/IP Networks with IPSEC & Linux FreeS/WAN 

Hugh Daniel 
The Linux FreeS/WAN Project 
hugh {AT} road.toad.com
www.freeswan.org

The tutorial will introduce various secure data-transmission technologies
and their implementation. IPSEC and related protocols provide a basis for
secure TCP/IP based networking and VPN's from the very simple to the
mind-bogglingly complex. Introducing IPSEC, IKE, DNS Secure and related
technology's both describing how they are different from current networking
practice and what systems they do (and don't) secure. We will then move on
to describing how to design, setup, debug and monitor such systems on the
'wild' Internet based on real world examples from the Linux FreeS/WAN
Project implementation of IPSEC/IKE and possible visions of future usage in
systems like Insular Technologies and similar. The session will last
approximately 4 hours and will be very labor intensive. The main aim of this
presentation is the advocacy of secure internet protocol usage as the sole
future standard of the matrix communication.

MECAD \ Media Centre d Art i Disseny presenta:
ARTE, CIENCIA Y ALEATORIEDAD
el 4º numero de MECAD ELECTRONIC JOURNAL

http://www.mecad.org/e-journal

"Arte, ciencia y aleatoriedad" es el titulo del cuarto numero de MECAD
e-journal, la revista on-line de la pagina web de MECAD.

Es comun la creencia de que la creatividad o el pensamiento creativo es, por
naturaleza, impredecible. La ciencia presume que la impredecibilidad puede
existir incluso en los procesos determinados, por lo que suele considerarse
imposible una comprension cientifica de la creatividad. Esta constatacion
origina una serie de preguntas acerca del papel del azar en los actos que
implican creatividad, sea en arte, sea en ciencia.
A traves de sus aportaciones, los diferentes teoricos y artistas que
participan en este numero nos ofrecen su particular vision acerca de esta
cuestion.

Contamos en esta ocasion con la participacion, en la seccion de articulos,
de Jorge Wagensberg (doctor en fisica y profesor de Teoria de los procesos
irreversibles en la Universidad de Fisica de Barcelona); Myriam Solar
(doctora en Ciencias de la Informacion y artista multimedia); Axel Roch
(miembro del equipo academico de arte y comunicacion en la Academy of Media
Arts en Colonia, Alemania); Paulo Motta (teorico de la musica y especialista
en el pensamiento historico-estetico de la musica erudita contemporanea);
Dina Roisman (artista y diseñadora grafica); y Eugenio Tisselli (licenciado
en Ingenieria en Sistemas Computacionales). En el apartado de Entrevistas,
Idoia Garcia de Cortazar entrevista a Juan Luis Moraza (doctor en Bellas
Artes). El apartado monografico esta dedicado a la artista Dina Roisman.

Ex Oriente Lux, the light rises in the east. Oriental and Western
Cultures are next-door neighbours. Images from the other culture undergo
a re-evaluation. The Orient opposes Western Technology and its
functional interests by maintaining that art is not restricted to the
consumption of decoration and entertainment, but is enriched by aspects
such as beauty and social relevance. Beauty =96 seen with some irony - is=

related to democratic objectives. The term Lux is more than just a
western brand name for a soap bar or a light bulb. Luxury in the sense
of plenty creates an identity for the society and stands in critical
opposition to ideologies of thrift.

The exhibition EX LUX uses the influence of the Oriental on Western
European everyday life as an opportunity to show the process of
re-evaluation of images from a different culture. It shows the works of
artists who grew up in Irani, Lebanese and Turkish cultures,
complemented by works  from Western artists. It is the respectful
otherness, the mutual influence of the cultures and the created hybrids,
which make up the structure of the exhibition. The presented aesthetical
concepts, originating from the respective culture, reflect this
structure.

The Orient as an ornamental order - the equalizing yet emphasizing
ornament has an elemental psychological effect and can assume political
significance: Parastou Forouhar uses it to re-connect social and
architectural structures. In the border area between script and
calligraphy, she creates a forum. Making public the drama of her
murdered parents, she breaks through the silence imposed on her by the
state.

Lemon scent: Eva Grubinger`s large lemon cone involve the spectator into
the dialectical game of the creation of meaning. Christoph Hinterhuber`s
curtain or the clothes by Suzy G=F3mez are allegory and basic commodity.
Like a veil, they can signify utmost intimacy but also excessive
triviality. Vases on oriental rugs tell of the secrets of the soul. Leo
Copers sets up oversize vases. The mass-produced rugs by Lori Hersberger
unroll a heightened emotionalization. Sabina Baumann visualizes the urge
for completion by the trickling of coloured water between two ponds.
Ebru Özse=E7en and
Mona Hatoum develop basic forms of physical and psychological
consciousness, at whose limits emerge Christa Näher`s double beings
(centaurs).

Precious artefacts from Persia and Turkey, which are kept at the
collection of the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, call to mind a
former way of life, which has influenced the occidental longing for the
Orient for centuries. In this context, Fariba Hajamadi shows that the
actual confrontation of cultural meaning takes place in the exhibition
space.

Stephan Huber`s fragile walls made from tool boxes and the loose grids
on the paintings of Philip Taaffe lure the visitors into a secret
garden, to James Lee Byars` letters with promises of perfection. The
oriental culture knows 99 names for light, which are but a preparation
for the encompassing and unique name. As well the art either from the
West or the East develops its richness and concepts from an absent and
general sense. Guillaume Bijl presents a collection of polling booths as
well as an installation of rugs. From scientific and musical intuition,
Helmut Schober focuses a bright beam on the surface of the screen. In
the east of the exhibition hall, Saam Schlamminger shows a documentary
film with drum sounds. In the west is heared a remix by DJ Sidney Stucki
in Fabrice Gygi`s sportive mosque room installation Menn =CB=EFnaiya =96 =
I
could tear out my eyes for you.

Ex Oriente Lux, im Osten steigt das Licht auf. Die orientalischen und
westlichen Kulturen siedeln Tür an Tür. Bilder aus dem jeweils andere=
n
Kulturkreis erfahren eine Umwertung. Der westlichen Technologie und
deren funktionale Interessen setzt der Orient entgegen, dass sich Kunst
nicht im Konsum von Dekor oder Unterhaltung erschöpft, sondern um
Aspekte, wie dem der Schönheit und der gesellschaftlichen Relevanz,
bereichert. Schönheit - als Denkstrategie nicht ohne Ironie - hat ihren=

Bezug zu demokratischen Zielsetzungen. Der Begriff Lux ist mehr als der
westliche Markennamen für eine Seife oder Glühbirne. Luxus im Sinne d=
er
Fülle ist ein identitätsstiftender Faktor der Gesellschaft und verhä=
lt
sich kritisch gegenüber Sparideologien.

Die Ausstellung EX LUX nimmt den Einfluss des Orientalischen auf den
westeuropäischen Alltag zum Anlass, um den Prozess der Umwertung von
Bildern aus einer anderen Kultur darzustellen. Es werden Werke von
KünstlerInnen gezeigt, die in den Kulturen des Iran, Libanon und der
Türkei aufgewachsen sind. Dazu gesellen sich Arbeiten von westlichen
Kunstschaffenden. Es sind das anerkennende Nebeneinander, die
Beeinflussung der Kulturen und die daraus entstandenen Mischformen,
welche die Struktur der Ausstellung bilden. Die vorgestellten
=C4sthetik-Konzepte, die ursprünglich dem jeweiligen Kulturkreis
hervorgegangen sind, reflektieren diesen Umstand.

Der Orient als ornamentale Ordnung - das gleichwertige und dennoch
akzentuierende Ornament hat eine elementare psychische Wirkung und kann
politische Bedeutung annehmen: Parastou Forouhar greift es auf, um
soziale und architektonische Strukturen neu zu verknüpfen. Aus dem
Zwischenbereich von Schrift und Ornament kalligraphiert sie ein Forum.
Sie trägt das Drama der Ermordung ihrer Eltern in die Öffentlichkeit
zurück und durchbricht das vom Staat auferlegte Schweigen.

Zitronenduft: Eva Grubingers Kegel aus Zitronen involviert den
Betrachter in das dialektische Spiel der Erzeugung von Bedeutung.
Christoph Hinterhubers Vorhang oder die Kleidungsstücke von Suzy G=F3me=
z
sind Bild und Gebrauchsgegenstand zugleich. Wie der Schleier können sie=

äu=DFerste Intimität aber auch banale Alltäglichkeit bedeuten. Vase=
n auf
orientalischen Teppichen erzählen von den Geheimnissen der Seele. Leo
Copers stellt überdimensionale Vasen auf. Eine gesteigerte
Emotionalisierung entrollt sich auch mit den industriell gefertigten
Teppichen von Lori Hersberger. Durch das Hinübersickern farbigen Wasser=
s
von einem Teich in den anderen verdeutlicht Sabina Baumann den Drang
nach Vervollständigung. Ebru Özse=E7en und Mona Hatoum entwickeln
Grundformen des körperlich-psychischen Bewusstseins, an dessen
Grenzlinien Christa Nähers Doppelwesen (Zentauren) entstehen.

Kostbare Gegenstände aus Persien und der Türkei, die in der Sammlung =
des Österreichischen Museums für Angewandte Kunst in Wien bewahrt werden,=
erinnern an eine vergangene Lebensart, welche die Orientsehnsucht
Europas jahrhundertelang geprägt hat. In diesem Zusammenhang macht
Fariba Hajamadi den Ausstellungsort als den eigentlichen Schauplatz der
Auseinandersetzung über kulturelle Bedeutung deutlich.

Stephan Hubers filigrane Wand aus Werkzeugkästen, die losen Gitterformen
auf den Tafelbildern von Philip Taaffe ziehen die Besucher in einen
geheimen Garten, zu James Lee Byars  Briefen mit dem Versprechen der
Vollkommenheit. Die orientalische Kultur kennt 99 Namen für das Licht,
die alle nur vorbereiten auf den einzigen und umfassenden Namen. Auch
die Kunst, ob westlicher oder östlicher Prägung, entfaltet ihren
Reichtum und ihre Konzepte um einen abwesenden und umfassenden Sinn. In
diesem Zusammenhang inszeniert John Hilliard die Bedeutung des Lichts
für die Entstehung von Bildern. Guillaume Bijl präsentiert eine Sammlung
von Wahlkabinen gemeinsam mit einer Teppichinstallation. Aus der
naturwissenschaftlichen und musikalischen Eingebung heraus fokussiert
Helmut Schober einen hellen Strahl auf die Leinwandoberfläche. Von Saam=
Schlamminger stammen Dokumentaraufnahmen mit Trommelklängen aus dem
Orient. Im Westen der Ausstellungshalle tönt der Remix von DJ Sidney
Stucki in dem sportlichen Moschee-Raum vom Fabrice Gygi: Menn =CB=EFnaiya,
Nach Dir weine ich mir die Augen aus.

From: "NOMADS" <nomads {AT} nomadnet.org>

AUDIOPHFILE v.5.0
http://www.nomadnet.org/audiophf.html

AUDIOPHFILE v.5.0, a bimonthly sonic art exhibition
organized by NOMADS, is now on-line at
<http://www.nomadnet.org/audiophfile5/>

v.5.0 features work by subspace (Buffalo, NY) and Michael Mersky (Mt. Airy,
Maryland).

Michael Mersky is a new media artist whose work is a meditation on tyranny.
AUDIOPHFILE v.5.0 features Mersky's "Ambient 1 s", "Ambient 2 s", "Ambient 3
s" & "Ambient 4 m".

Subspace is the work of one humanoid (Jonathan Hughes) and lots of faithful
machines. His contribution to AUDIOPHFILE, "Fluid: environmental sound
modules one through ten", features two sets of tracks which have been
formulated so they work either on their own or in unison. Any two tracks
from either set simultaneously can be played simultaneously to create hybrid
tracks. All tracks contain minimal rhythmic elements and are related in key,
so any track from one set can be successfully combined with any track from
the other set (although you may find some combinations more pleasant than
others).

AUDIOPHFILE requires the Flash 4.0 player and a java-enabled browser. As
always, we recommend the use of headphones or speakers for the best
listening experience.

AUDIOPHFILE is funded, in part, by the DC Commission on the Arts and
Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Subject: Tate celebrate the launch of online art programme

TATE LAUNCHES ONLINE ART PROGRAMME

Tonight, Tate celebrate the launch of commisioned works by:

Harwood {AT} mongrel

&

Simon Patterson

Tuesday 27 June 2000, 18.30 (BST)

http://www.tate.org.uk

The first web art project commissioned by Tate is online.  Uncomfortable
Proximity by Harwood {AT} Mongrel takes the format of
an alternative version of the Tate website. The second commission, Le Match
des couleurs, is a sound and image work by Simon Patterson which will go
online on 12 July. Both can be visited at http://www.tate.org.uk  and will
be online until 30 June 2001.

Uncomfortable Proximity has the appearance of the Tate website in design and
layout and has parallel subsections. However, new images have been inserted
and texts have been altered to offer an alternative, often witty or
challenging, history of Tate and the Tate Collection. In this work the
artist collages together his personal responses to the Collection and
reflections on the history of the Tate Britain site. The work is launched in
a separate window which sits behind the Tate website, emphasising its
parallel position.

Le Match des couleurs features a recording of Radio France 1's football
commentator Eugène Sacomano, reading the football results of all the teams
who have ever played in the French Football League. He goes on to give each
team a colour value based on the Hexadecimal Equivalent colour system used
on the internet. Le Match des couleurs is based on Patterson's earlier sound
work Color Match 1997, in which BBC results announcer Tim Gudgin reads a
list of English football teams and a text based on the code numbers of
Pantone Colors* - an international colour standard used by printers and
designers. In Color Match, Patterson wanted to 'create a continuous visual
spectrum by aural means alone'. This new work restores the visual component
by putting the colours on screen.

Harwood (founding member of Mongrel with Yokokoji, Pierre-Davis and Mervin
Jarman), born 1960, has been making interactive and digital works since the
late 1980s, both as an artist and educationalist. Mongrel recently won the
Clarks Digital Bursary and the Imaginaria Award, and has been included in
numerous international exhibitions featuring new media and was recently
included in the Net Condition exhibition at ZKM in Karslruhe.

Simon Patterson, born 1967, has been exhibiting since the late 1980s. In his
best known work, The Great Bear 1992 he removed the names of stations from
the London Underground map and inserted new names including those of movie
stars, saints, philosophers and other well-known personalities. Patterson's
'sly substitutions' break down the rigidity of fixed systems and known
truths, expanding the world of alternate possibilities. He was shortlisted
for the Turner Prize in 1996 and has recently shown at Project 70 at the
Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The Tate website has grown to be amongst the most successful of museum sites
in the world, with access now being taken up from more than 140 countries.
Sixty-six million hits were recorded during 1999 and in May alone this year
over twenty-two million hits were registered.

Alongside these new works, Tate has commissioned critical texts online from
the writer Matthew Fuller. Shake Editions recently published his book, ATM.

Subject: Wiretap 6.07: Time-based Space
Date: Wed, 28 Jun 2000 18:29:20 +0200
From: Andreas Broeckmann <abroeck {AT} v2.nl>

Wiretap 6.07: Time-based Space

Date: Sunday July 9th, 2000, 14.00 - 17.00
(Doors open 13.00hrs)

Location: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

Entrance Fee: Fl. 7.50

Presentations by: Maja Kuzmanovic (HR/B), Lars Spuybroek/NOX (NL), Sabine
Schäfer (D)
Moderation: Andreas Broeckmann, V2_ (D/NL)

WT 6.07 deals with the relation of space in time: architecture as movement,
interactions between virtual and real spaces, the transformation of space
through sound.

Modern physics has forged a wide-spread understanding of the
interdependency of time and space. Space is not a given but is created in
time by the movement of bodies and sound waves. Space is an unstable,
time-based concept that has to be established by our perceptual and
cognitive apparatus through continuous looking, listening and moving. Thus
we construct our spatial environment through perception (especially seeing
and listening) and  proprioception (the intuitive spatial 'knowledge' of
our body, for instance in eye-hand-coordination).

Digital technologies are particularly relevant in this context, because
they are themselves time-based and allow for a transformation and
representation of virtual objects and virtual structures in real-time. The
manipulation of space in time can be simulated and projected by digital
media, offering images and experiences of unexpected space-time
configurations.

Presentations

The insight into the interrelation between space and time has interesting
ramifications in the arts.

Digital artists and designers are developing interfaces which serve to
extend the human body into its virtual environment, allowing the body to
manipulate the surrounding space and its perception. Maja Kuzmanovic
presents an artistic research project in progress, T-Garden, which she is
developing together with the Californian art and research collective
Sponge. T-Garden is a responsive environment where visitors can put on
sound, dance with images and play with media together in a tangible way. As
visitors enter the performance, they can put on special clothing which is
embedded with wearable sensing devices as well as small audio speakers. The
actions and interactions between visitors then trigger polymorphous and
liquid sound and video textures which seem to turn the space into a
responsive organism.

Similarly, architects have come to rethink the relationship between human
behaviour and built space by conceiving an architecture that is not static
and fixed, but fluid and temporal. Lars Spuybroek of NOX Architects insists
that space must be conceived from the perspective of the moving body:
'Bodies try to transgress themselves in time, that is: connected to other
bodies, other rhythms, other actions. In this sense, you can really only
talk about 'space' as a result of an experiential body timing its actions.
Space is never a given.'

Music and sound art are fundamentally time-based and are therefore
particularly effective in spatial representation and manipulation. In the
project series TopoPhonien, the composer and sound artist Sabine Schäfer
researches the possibilities of a spatial sound art. Her installations and
performances deal with the construction of spaces through sound, building
on the inner 'architecture' of sound. In different collaborations with the
composer Joachim Krebs and the software developer Sukandar Kartadinata she
has created programmes for composing 'area-sound-movements' which define
virtual sound spaces within and against the built architecture. Sabine
Schäfer will be presenting her projects and will demonstrate the principles
of TopoPhonien in a live performance.

Participants

Maja Kuzmanovic (HR/B)
Nominated by MIT as one of the 100 'Young Innovators' of the past year, Maja
Kuzmanovic holds a Master of Arts in Interactive Multimedia and her
specialisation is Interactive Film and Storytelling.  She is currently
director of the newly formed Foundation of Affordable Mysticism (FOAM, at
Starlab in Brussels), where she works with various art and technology
collectives and is exploring novel modes and resources of cultural
expression.  She was involved in the development of the Design Technology
course at the Utrecht School of the Arts, where she taught the modules
'Wearable Computing' and 'Hybrid Architecture'. She previously worked as
Artist in Residence at CWI (Center for Mathematics and Computer Science) in
Amsterdam, and GMD (National Center for Information Technology) in Sankt
Augustin (Germany).  She was specifically involved in projects concerning
Internet innovation and Virtual Reality technologies.  She has participated
in high-level discussions about SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration
Language),XML and WAP and has researched the possibilities of storytelling
in immersive Virtual Reality (CAVE).

Lars Spuybroek/NOX (NL)
Holds a degree in architecture from the Technical University Delft and is
co-founder of NOX: a design office that has produced videos, installations,
a magazine, texts and architecture.  Lars Spuybroek has been editor of the
quarterly magazine Forum (1994-'97) and has lectured extensively in Holland
and abroad.  In 1998 he was Visiting Associate Professor at Columbia
University, New York.  By means of a genetic engineering, NOX tries to
generate a flexible architecture that nestles itself in the transitional
area of two worlds often thought of as parallel: the world of biological
organisms on the one hand, and that of the metallic and electronic fauna of
modern technologies on the other.  NOX operates in the expanding twilight
zone of blurring and fluidity.  Over the past few years, NOX realised a.o.
'Soft City', a television production for VPRO TV which was presented at
several international festivals such as Ars Electronica 94; H2O eXPO, a
waterpavilion for the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water
Management; 'SoftSite', an installation for DEAF 1996, presented on the Internet
and projected at the NAi, (Netherlands Architecture Institute), Wet Grid for
the exhibition Vision Machine (Musée des Beaux Arts, Nantes).  In 1998 NOX
designed the V2_ MediaLab.  Spuybroek's work is currently represented at the
architecture biennial of Venice (2000).

Sabine Schäfer (D)
Is free-lance sonic art composer and media artist.  She studied composition
with Mathias Spahlinger and Wolfgang Rihm, and piano at the Hochschule für
Musik (Karlsruhe).  She has developed numerous interdisciplinary art
projects with visual artists, writers, dancers and other musicians.  She has
researched the artistic application of system-exclusive data at the Center
of Art and Media (ZKM, Karlsruhe), and computer-controlled pianos at the
Institute of Sonology (The Hague). Since 1992 she has been creating computer
controlled spatial sound installations and has staged multimedia
performances; she has also been producing radio plays on sonic art since
1994.  In her walk-in sound environments, Sabine Schäfer often refers to the
architectural environment in which the works are staged.  For ZKM
(Karlsruhe) she developed together with Sukandar Kartadinata "TopoPhonien"
(1994): an art project quering the spatialisation of sound.  Sabine Schäfer
has been awarded the Acustica International award, and the Siemens Media Art
Prize.  Her most recent project is 'Sonic Rooms' in collaboration with the
composer Joachim Krebs.

"DIALTONE" -by TAMAS SZAKAL(digital sound artist 
from Germany)of CONTOUR.NET

DIALTONE is a net audio installation exposing the 
physical and virtual space of the internet and 
attempting to open this hybrid space for sounds 
and noises by using simple telecomunication 
instruments like telephones and answering 
machines. This audio interface between telephone 
network and the internet explores how interaction 
and compression changes audio in a network. The 
installation connects the venue to our 
telecommunication network through sound and 
vision.

3 answering machines recieve 3 minute sound 
samples from all around the world. People 
transmit audio tracks with simple telephones by 
dialing one of the 3 "sound servers" and 
uploading nioses, words, or music. The machines 
are connected to an audio mixer and a to an 
amplifier for performing and installing the audio 
network live. Visitors in the venue mix the 
uploaded samples and work with the content of the 
system. 3 cameras capture the displays of the 
answering machines which are
projected back into the space for a phisical and 
for a virtual audience - live at the gallery 
(pavillon crescendo / Leipzig) and on

HOTEL NEW YORK
P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center Gallery 205

Sunday July 2  Hotel New York presents work by The Danger of Consorting
Species entitled "Private Study in Vexations".

Erik Satie's infamous one page piano piece "Vexations" which requests that
it be played 843 times will be offset by the text of the German alchemist
and physician Paracelsus, "Book Of Vexations", which inspired it.  Satie's
'musique d'ameublement' (furniture music) will be performed by alternating
pianists while Paracelsus' writing infiltrates the room in a different way,
silent and graphic. The experience of vexation in the obsessive chords of
Satie and the hermetic language of Paracelsus manifests itself in an
intricate series of abandoned operations. The hotel room, usually a space
of continous change, is momentarily suspended in time.

The Danger of Consorting Species is a collective endeavor interested in
exploring the relationship of music and text, and what occurs between them.
_________________________

Hotel New York is an initiative of the Dutch artist Jeanne van Heeswijk,
that marked her participation in the International Studio Program 1998/99
at PS1. Jeanne has passed the torch to Alice Smits to organize Hotel New
York 2000.
 
Gallery 205 at PS1 is transformed into a replica of a hotelroom of Hotel
New York in Rotterdam, located in the former head office of the
Holland-America line. The studio is called the Willem de Kooning Room, in
memory of Willem de Kooning who left Rotterdam as a stowaway on board of
the Holland-America line to New York. 

With Hotel New York PS1 a cultural line to New York is created. Hotel New
York functions as a working and showing space for artists, performers,
filmmakers and curators. During the year Alice Smits will invite guests to
stay, work and present projects, performances, and lectures to the public.
As a hotelroom, Hotel New York echoes the history of travel and thus
reflects the migration and nomadic movements of the contemporary art world.
While artists and curators travel all over the world, the hotel room is
where it all happens. Hotel New York is a space for live events focusing on
artists projects that emphasis interdisciplinarity and public interaction.
In the intimate situation of a living space, Hotel New York offers an
interesting context for making and presenting such projects within the
contemporary art museum.

ACTIVE LINK
One afternoon conference
June 29th 2000
Merz Akademie, Stuttgart
starting at 17.00 MEST

LINK is a connection from one information object to another.

The original purpose of the LINK was: keeping kopies up to
date, saving filesystem capacity through avoiding redundant files, being
a placeholder for data stored somwhere else.
Today LINK is the essence of the web: connecting different sites on
different locations with each other - in a decentralized, rhizomatic
structure. LINKING is not only building a connection, but relations. To
make LINKS can mean: collecting information, making art or doing
business, surveing or surviving.

ACTIVE LINK is a link at the very moment, when it is selected or when
you click on it. It's short moment, but the most interesting of all.
LINKS have to be active in order to make a system working and it's
efforts making  sense. Networking environments consist of LINKS, in
order to enrich, enlarge and faciliate the users activities.
LINKING means to share ressources and to use them commonly. This is the
pre-condition for any social activity on the net.
What a LINK can be? What an active ACTIVE LINK can perform? These are
the questions we find important in june 2000.

ALINK is a first event organized by Networking group students of Merz
Akademie, Stuttgart

ALINK will happen once a year in the end of summer semester.
ALINK will cover hot, vital, curious and forgotten subject.
ALINK can grow, change and dissapear. ALINK can be moved and renamed.

Subject: Webcast 113: Anti-Stoerung

STATION ROSE STRreaming-Fahrplan update :

                 dear Gunafa Netizen,

before we set the controls for summer-pause-mode, - dont panic we are still
here-, we will stream a live jam session this thursday directly to your
very harddrives, like a cold summer breeze.

NetSTReams - Webcast 113 at <http://www.stationrose.com>

---> Webcast 113, today THU/29.6.00, 9pm CET:   Die Anti-Stoerung


* Die Anti-Stoerung. (anti-distortion)
A focal point in the visual art of Station Rose 2000.
We develop that right now. When a few years ago our videos were distorted,
we got in trouble.
The artscene didnt like that at all. But as you know, distortion arrived at
TV-commercials as a chic element for advertisers (to demonstrate they know
what is hip  ;-). So forget distortion.

* Performance - always a Schwerpunkt including "Posing in Cyberspace".
great in that little streaming window. Blow it up full screen, and it looks
even better & bigger.

*  No Fucking Games - we are not gamblers & not brokers either.

* Francoise Hardy & Jacques Dutronc -
the brandnew single called "puisque vouz partez en voyage". Brought from a
short trip over the borders to     	France, one of the most beautiful
areas in Europe, and just 2 hours away from Frankfurt.
* as we are getting deeper & deeper in the production of our new book,
chansons are a good relaxation in   contrast to the ascii text world.

* due to social local obligations, we have to go to a vernissage, we cannot
stream this friday. We are back next week.
