Eine Stunde lang verwandelt sich ein Strassenbahnwagen in ein Video- und
Klanglabor von Kölner Videokünstlern und der Elektronikband Mouse on Mars,
die live vor Ort spielen wird. Der Sonderwagen durchkreuzt die Kölner
Innenstadt, live-Kameras fangen den Raum inner- und ausserhalb des Wagens
ein. Das entstehende Bildmaterial wird live editiert und via
Videoprojektoren auf die vorbeiziehende urbane Landschaft zurückgeworfen.
Wiederum abgefilmt ergibt sich eine Mischung von Aussen und Innen. Die
Architektur der Rheinstadt wird Bestandteil und Projektionsfläche von
Musik und Bildern. Die Strassenbahn kann als bewegliches Modul gesehen

For the space of an hour a tram is transformed into an audio/visual
laboratory by a group of artists accompanied by the electronic band "Mouse
on Mars" who play live "on location" as it travels through the city centre
of Cologne. Live cameras capture the inner and outer environment of the
tram. The resulting video images are edited in real-time and then
projected back onto the passing urban landscape.The resulting image stream
is in turn filmed again, mixing the inner and outer space further. The
architecture of this Rhine-city becomes an integral part of both the
construction and the projection of the acoustic and visual timeframe. The
tram becomes a mobile module which travels along a time axis. The
buildings on the outskirts chart the scale of the time-line through which
the audio/visual laboratory moves.....

sincere apologies to anyone who receives this twice, or receives this in

\\international\media\art award 2001

call for entries

The \\international\media\art award 2001 is organized by the broadcaster
Südwestrundfunk Baden-Baden (SWR) and by ZKM Zentrum für Kunst und
Medientechnologie Karlsruhe (Center for Art and Media), in co-operation
with Swiss Television SF DRS and Arte (European Cultural Channel). The
all-embracing concept of media art is intended to offer video tapes as
well as media and interactive art projects a television forum. In the year
2001, the overall subject is:

control space ? the vigilant society
observation \ surveillance \ control \ attention

"We must not let the 100-eyed all seeing colossus Argos become a mythical
icon of our media society, we must be watchful for strategies of
surveillance, be vigilant against the technology of reconnaissance, and
defend civil society against the armament of vision, that is societyís new
task." (Peter Weibel, ZKM)

Seeing without being seen, surveillance, storage, control, observation -
it is all possible in the wired society. The state knows what we own and
what we earn, the bank knows our transactions, the travel agency knows our
dreams, the insurance companies our risk factors, and the police store our
data. We live in a transparent society where everything is observed by
everybody, and through Information Technology we are constructing the
panoptic society (pan = all, optikos = seeing). From Orwellís 1984 to Big
Brother or The Matrix - surveillance has a new fascination - even
advancing into the very structure of the individual psyche. This new
market of attention promotes narcissism, exhibitionism, and voyeurism in
the new playgrounds of the mass media. Where the Moderns feared and
forbade, the Postmoderns say: enjoy! The tyranny of intimacy and the end
of privacy in all their manifestations, from attraction to danger,
composes the background for the subject "Control Space ? the vigilant
society" for the \\international\media\art award 2001. Artists from all
over the world are challenged to address this subject with their
curiosity, their criticism, and their fantasies.

The international jury consists of Lynn Hershman\\Media Artist, San
Francisco; Chrissie Iles\\Curator for Media, Whitney Museum of American
Art, New York; Christoph Joerg \\TV Editor and Producer, arte (La Sept)
Paris; Friedrich Kittler\\Media Scientist, Humboldt-Universität, Berlin;
Thomas Y. Levin\\Culture and Media Scholar, Princeton University,
Princeton, N.J. They will attribute the following awards:

\\international media\art\award 2001 \\ VIDEO \ 12 000 EURO
\\international media\art\award 2001 \\ INTERACTIVE \ 12 000 EURO

       RE:  Linda Kramer Award Recipient Deanna Lee

February Exhibition
                        Show Dates: February 1st  to February 24th
 Opening Reception: Friday, February 2nd, 5-8 PM

In 1996, former Artemisia member Linda Kramer, recognizing the need to
provide more free exhibition opportunities to emerging artists, provided

the gallery with a bequest. The Linda Kramer Fund supplies one free
exhibition space per year to an under-represented woman artist from the
Chicago area.

This year's Linda Kramer Award Recipient is Deanna Lee.

Deanna Lee's beautiful and obsessive paintings and sculptures merge and
transform the realistic rendering and the cartoon.  A recent graduate of
the MFA in Painting and Drawing at The School of the Art Institute of
Chicago, Deanna is the recipient of this year's Linda Kramer Fund Award
for Exhibition.

About her own work, Deanna says:   "My work is informed by processes of
multiplicity (i.e. duplication, repetition, copy) and their implications
for the ideas of consumption and the unique.  Moving from individual
paintings to arrangements of multiple painted objects, my recent work
explores temptation, resistance, and ambivalence in a visual form.  I am
interested in the potential for the work to play multiple roles:  as
of desire and objects denied, as symbol and contradiction of the symbol,

as parody and homage.

Hi John,

I'm a TV producer researching a proposed programme about the impact of the
Internet on culture.

I guess novels written on/for the net are one outcome but otherwise all my
searches turn up pre-existing art being written about on the net, bought and
sold on the net etc. Has anyone done any work on the way the internet has
actually impacted on Art (with specific examples of literary/fine art works
which owe something to the net - whether or not they were created on/for it?
(As Mike Figgis' movie Timecode reflects on digital technologies...)

This is for a proposed series about the impact of other 'technologies' on
the history of high culture - photography on painting, sound recording on
music, and then the internet on culture.

Any ideas, book suggestions etc gratefully received. Probably won't get
commissioned these days anyway as there's no gardening/cooking/millions to
be won. I am the weakest link. Goodbye.

Subject: Visual Culture @ De Balie, 6 & 7 April, 2001


Visual Culture

De Balie, Amsterdam
Friday 6th & Saturday 7th of April 2001

Visual Culture in De Balie

An important theme for De Balie in coming months is Visual Culture. This
new interdisciplinary terrain is typical for current times: it focuses on
different disciplines simultaneously while searching for connections. Film,
television as well as visual art, advertising, the urban environment and
new digital and electronic presentation forms are part of Visual Culture,
but also dress codes and the manner in which magazines and shops present
themselves in our experience economy that is strongly based on visual
stimuli. Visual Culture looks at the totality of visual messages, icons and
codes that confront us on a daily basis.

Two days, two themes

The program kicks off on the 6th and 7th of April with a two-day research
conference in the Balie in Amsterdam in which the subject Visual Culture
will be explored. Our wish is to further reflection beyond establishing
that so-called `high-' and `low' culture are increasingly less easy to
distinguish from each other, that art, culture and commerce are currently
developing ever more hand in hand and that our notions on art and culture
are changing - among other things because contemporary image culture is a
Two main themes will be broached: the increasing interrelation of art,
culture and economy and the mix of different image cultures in
multicultural society.
What does the convergence of all these cultural and social fields - that
were hitherto separate - mean? What consequences will this all have? How,
as an image producer caught up in that network of interests can one still
take a critical stance and put it into practice? What then does such a
critical stance look like? These questions among others will be dealt with.

Who's attending?

Nicholas Mirzoeff, an American authority and advocate of Visual Culture as
a new perspective. Olu Oguibe, visual artist and art-critic, expert on
critical issues on contemporary (African) art and cinema. Together with
Okwui Enwezor editor of Nka, journal of contemporary African art. Cathérine
David, artistic director of the last Documenta. John Akomfrah, a black film
maker and critic who unlike anyone else is able to analyze and depict value
judgements on the basis of ethnic and/or cultural differences. Jeff Rian,
editor in chief of the magazine Purple.
>From Holland those attending are among others: Felix de Rooij, artist and
film maker, producer of the famous exhibition Wit over Zwart. Matthijs de
Jongh, responsible for strategy at advertising agency KesselsKramer. Chris
Keulemans, writer and journalist. Patricia Pisters, tutor and researcher
into gender in film and video clips and co-author of a book on Madonna.
Henk Oosterling, philosopher, associated with the center for philosophy and
art at Erasmus University. Felix Janssens, graphic designer.

But there will certainly not only be talk and theorizing. There are also
many visual presentations involving people who are formative in Visual
Culture themselves: artists, designers, media and theatre producers,
fashion designers, photographers and architects, people from business and
advertising - especially those whose perspectives cut across the boundaries
of their discipline. An interdisciplinary field calls for an
interdisciplinary approach.

Preparations are being made on a special Visual Culture - website, that is
currently being developed for the Balie by a group of students from the
department of Interaction Design of the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht
(HKU). This will be operational in February 2001.

program of the Balie is kept up to date on developments.

Paivi Hintsanen's The Book of Days.
"The Book of Days" asks questions about time and origin, and about
living now in this time. The sense of history is around us but we 
can't see it close enough; the world is full of places we haven't 
visited, cultures we haven't met but which we have learned from 
schools, books and media. This is richness but also a loss; when
