the hypothesis, that a new kind of culture
arises with the diy-alike using of the universal
machine called computer is a problem ("turn
passive media consumers into active
producers" <- the old dream of brecht,
kluge/negt, borroughs and and and). does the
re- or let's say counter-usability has the
function of gathering "cool" ideas for
industries? - detournement goes style? - or is
this culture a sub-industry o even beside-
industry in the sense of subversion, with the
potential of a de-competition? and if it is so,
why do one (who?) need a award?*

Subject: without papers in europe

[some months a go the booklet "without papers in europe"
appeared in german. we're glad to announce that the 
english translation is now online... /fls]

This book deals with the situation of illegalized refugees
and migrants. It is concerned with the circumstances
surrounding their entry and residence, attempts at
self-organization, and support projects. Our aim is to
provide information on the predicament of "illegals" in
different countries, as well as to compare the measures
taken throughout the EU to come to terms with the problem.
We believe that awareness of the systematic deprivation of
rights suffered by refugees and migrants, and knowledge of
their resistance and struggles, as well as the initiatives
launched by anti-racist groups, is indispensable for all who
respond to the "Fortress of Europe" with the cry, "Open
frontiers for all!"

MIG Presents:

Loopixel - A series of projected computer generated imagery on canvas

Artist: Doron Golan

Doron Golan investigates the relationship between painting and the use of
time, light portrayed through computer visualizations and compressed

In using short loops, three to thirty seconds, these projected illuminations
create a meditative environment that suggests a quality of timeless space.

Mr. Golan says, "My work embraces the physical projection light, and yet, is
related to the romantic idea of using light as a metaphor for the
realization of the nature of art and ideals."
