Abolition of the "Residenzpflichtgesetz" Pass Laws for refugees in Germany
Protest march and Demonstration in Berlin-17-19 May 2001

"Come to Berlin"

Action Days and General Demonstration from 17. to 19. May 2001 in Berlin

Abolition of the "Residenzpflichtgesetz" (Pass Law) for the refugees!
Freedom of movement!

The refugees will mobilise to Berlin for a three day political protest
meetings and cultural event with a nation-wide demonstration against the
Residence Obligation ( Residenzpflicht) Pass Laws. The aim is to inform
many refugees about the actions.

For accommodation,tents would be built around the center of Berlin for
women,children and others .

The starting point: For refugees, they are not allowed to leave their
local district "landkreis" , where they live. It is only possible for them
to leave after obtaining permission from the foreign authority
"ausländerbehörde" in the local district. In most cases, the authorities
deny this permission, so the refugee is forced to go against this pass law
for example when he/she has to meet their relatives or friends or take
part in cultural and political events.

The "Residenzpflichtgesetz", which exists only in Germany since 1982,
violates the fundamental right of free movement for the refugees and also
criminalizes them. If refugees have to leave their landkreis without
permission this is taken as a crime - so, the refugee is punished and
forced to pay money to the court or to the foreign authorities. Their
continuous violation of the pass law may lead to imprisonment of up to one
year with deportation threat.

You may be fined as much as 5000DM according to article 86 of the German
asylum law (AsylVFG) for the violation of the Apartheid residential
restriction -Obligation "pass law" and if the fine cannot be paid by the
refugee who get a meagre 80DM per month, he or she is slave worked as
punishment for the fine.Situation now:

Because of the increasing repression of the refugees by the state
authorities, the Karawane will be mobilising for the preparation of a
nationwide demonstration, which will take place on the 17 to the 19 of May
in Berlin at the Bundestag. We took the first step in initiating a
nation-wide self -organisations of refugees in the Die Karawane for the
rights of refugees and migrants (summer 1998), Die Karawane hunger strike
for justice during the G8-summit in Cologne, the Refugees Congress in Jena
(April/May 2000) and the demonstrations during the Expo in Hannover
(July/October 2000).

We protest, calling for the immediate abolition of the Apartheid
Residential Restriction -Obligation Pass Law "Residenzpflichtgesetz" which
exist only in Germany since 1982. Our protest against the discrimination
of refugees is part of our(my) political engagement for the continuation
of our (my) political struggle for human freedom in exile, as our (my)
right to freedom of opinion, expression and association regardless of
frontiers is also restricted, in violation of Articles 13, 19, 20, 27 and
29 of the Universal Declaration of Human rights which Germany ratified.

Subject: [ A20: The Struggle Is Live ] A Call for Electronic Civil Disobedience Against the FTAA

[ A20: The Struggle Is Live ]

A Call for Electronic Civil Disobedience Against the FTAA

April 20, 2001 will be the start of the Fourth Summit of the Americas
meeting. It will feature the leaders of the 34 members of the Organization
of American States (OAS) - all the heads of state of the countries of the
Western Hemisphere except Cuba. High on the Summit's agenda is the Free
Trade Area of the Americas negotiations.

The FTAA is a trade agreement currently being negotiated by 34 countries in
an "effort to unite the economies of the Western Hemisphere" (excluding
Cuba) within the framework of the Organization Of American States (OAS). The
FTAA is based on elements of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
the protocols of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the failed
Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI). The stated objectives of the
FTAA are:

economic integration of the hemisphere
promotion of the integration of capital markets
consistency with the World Trade Organization (WTO)
elimination of barriers and non-tariff barriers to trade
elimination of agricultural export subsidies
elimination of barriers to foreign investment
a legal framework to protect investors and their investments
enhanced government procurement measures
new negotiations on the inclusion of services

The major theme present throughout the available FTAA documents is
harmonization. In essence the laws and policies of the 34 countries of the
OAS are to be based on uniformity. This standardization will be based on the
principles of:

Privatization (the transfer of publicly funded invention and ingenuity to
private hands once it's determined to be potentially profitable.

De-regulation ( a misnomer referring to extensive re-regulation of the
delivery of good and services in the market).

The FTAA negotiators aim to create the worlds largest and most far reaching
free trade agreement. Free trade is traditionally defined as "Trade between
nations without protective customs tariffs" a good working definition but
not an accurate description of what has become known as free trade. The
"free trade" that the FTAA refers to is an Orwellian euphemism for the
re-regulation (not de-regulation) of the delivery of goods and services in
favour of private (rather than public) enterprise while limiting the ability
of elected representatives to enact legislation that may be construed as a
non-tariff barrier. That is, far from just dealing with the re-regulation of
trade "free-trade" agreements concern and affect all aspects of our lives
including environmental regulations, healthcare, social security and

The Internet is not exempt from FTAA re-regulation in fact it is actually
one of the Summit's major themes. Indeed, all the hot topics amongst
security experts, hackers, and netizens are being discussed and will be
affected by the FTAA: Internet privacy, encryption, freedom of speech, and
freedom of information.
The FTAA is being negotiated in secret. Despite the claim of a commitment to
"transparency" actual information regarding the working documents and the
negotiations has been extremely limited. Most of the information about the
FTAA has been from "derestricted" documents. However, FTAA negotiating
documents are available to some 500 corporate representatives. This is an
affront to all who believe in open-source and democracy and is an extreme
violation of freedom of information especially considering the drastic
affect that this secret deal will have on both the Internet and our lives.

While the FTAA acknowledges that privacy, more properly consumer privacy,
needs to be protected it is only in favor of such protection in so far as it
does not "inhibit the growth of electronic commerce". In essence, it is not
a right that consumers are entitled to but rather a privilege so long as it
does not impede the growth of the profit margin. Additionally, the FTAA
favors "self-regulation" by the industry, a business as usual scenario,
since governments have "different traditions and approaches to privacy
protection" and may be unable to agree on harmonization of privacy policies.

The FTAA views encryption and digital signatures as "essential technology
for enabling electronic commerce" provided that there is "appropriate
mechanisms for lawful access to encrypted information". The FTAA is
concerned that "these technologies may also be used for illegal activities,
which can affect public safety, business and consumer interests" but assures
us that industry self-regulation is "powerful and effective" and that other
mechanisms may impede "further growth".

The FTAA addresses intellectual property rights but the exact nature is
unknown for few documents have been available to the public. However, the
FTAA, being fully WTO compatible, will fully support extreme interpretations
of copyright and trademark issues. With recent WIPO rulings as precedent it
is safe to assume that the FTAA will strengthen legislation like the DMCA
and support WIPO rulings in domain name disputes, meta-tag disputes and
other freedom of speech issues.

In order to facilitate the Summit and the FTAA negotiations Quebec City is
being turned into a militarised encampment. Despite the rhetoric of "open
borders" the Old City sector of Quebec City is being surrounded by a
2.5-mile "security perimeter" a ten-foot high fence designed to enclose the
Summit. Behind this fence there will be a security force of 5000 armed
police officers. Residents of the Old City will be required to present photo
identification and proof of residence to enter to and from their homes.

Additionally, the Orsainville provincial prison has been emptied of its 600
inmates in order to accommodate arrested protestors. Furthermore, citizens
of other countries, particularly the U.S. that plan to attend the April 20
Demonstration are being systematically denied entry into Canada solely
because they wish to exercise their democratic right to voice opposition to
a secret Agreement being negotiated in their name but without their consent.

However, while extensive efforts are being undertaken to keep dissenters at
bay Corporations are being invited to "sponsor" the Summit in return for
"preferential seating" and other perks designed to give Corporations access
to the decision-makers behind the FTAA. Furthermore, a corporate sponsor
could have a "potential speaking opportunity" for a mere $500,000 at a
reception that will be attended by the heads of state of 34 countries in
Western Hemisphere.

Despite the extensive efforts to silence and criminalize democratic dissent
thousands of citizens will descend on the Summit of the Americas in Quebec.
There will be a Peoples' Summit of the Americas, a forum in which a wide
variety of alternatives will be explored and suggested. In addition, there
will be over 170 groups from Canada and the hemisphere encompassing human
rights groups, trade unions, student organizations, feminist organizations,
church groups, indigenous people groups, environmental groups, the
Zapatistas, women's organizations struggling in the maqilladoras, and many
more - a broad spectrum of focus and opinion all voicing their resistance to
the Summit and the FTAA. Within this mass mobilization there will be a
variety methods of protest - from direct action to legal marches - but there
is an overwhelming respect for a diversity of tactics.

With respect for the diversity of tactics and in solidarity with the
democratic opposition in the streets of Quebec - we call upon hackers,
activists, hacktivists and netizens to engage in an Electronic Civil
Disobedience campaign against the Summit of the Americas, the Free Trade
Area of the Americas (FTAA), and the Corporate Sponsors. Let data bodies
join in non-violent direct action on-line in solidarity with the real bodies
on the streets.

The Internet is that common factor that both hackers and activists have a
huge investment in. The Internet has become essential to both communities:
activists rely on it for organization, communication and dissemination of
information. With the globalization of activism and protest the Internet has
become an even more essential technology. Hackers, on the other hand, also
require a stable, healthy and free Internet environment in which to exist
and explore the complexities of computers and technology. Hacktivism is
based on the issues of freedom of speech, information and exchange of ideas,
captured beautifully in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration on Human

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right
includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive
and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of

Recognizing that the FTAA will constrain the Internet by regulating it based
on profitability instead of possibility and cognizant of the fact this
threatens the freedoms of speech, expression, and information which are
vital components of keeping the Internet healthy and vibrant we oppose the
FTAA. We call for Electronic Civil Disobedience that will disturb the super
highway for a few days and not destroy it forever like the FTAA.

Let us add Quebec to the list that started in Chiapas, on January 1, 1994
which begat Geneva, Seattle, Melbourne, Prague, Davos, Cancun, and Naples.
Let us join those on the street and across the world struggling "For
Against Neoliberalism."

Let us say Ya Basta! Enough is Enough!

The Struggle Is Live

Most discussions of the "digital divide" erase the numerous contributions
of minority artists, activists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and scholars.
Researchers in MIT's Program in Comparative Media Studies and USC's
Annenberg Center for Communication will host a three-day conference, "Race
in Digital Space," to explore current issues and celebrate the
accomplishments of minorities using digital technologies, Friday, 27 April
through Saturday, 29 April 2001 on the MIT campus.  The conference is free
and open to the public.

"Cyberspace has been represented as a race-blind environment, yet we don't
shed our racial identities or escape racism just because we go
on-line," said Henry Jenkins, professor, director of Comparative Media
Studies at MIT, and co-organizer of the event.  "The concept of 'digital
divide,' however, is inadequate to describe  a moment when minority use of
digital technologies is dramatically increasing. The time has come to focus
on the success stories, to identify examples of work that has increased
minority access to information technologies and visibility in digital

Conference organizers hope the event will serve as a touchstone for
thinking critically about race in a wide variety of digital spaces. "We
need to think beyond the screen and the mouse," said Tara McPherson,
professor at USC's School of Cinema-TV and conference co-organizer.
"Digital spaces extend to a whole range of 'tote-able' street technologies
from cell phones and beepers to Gameboys, music equipment and more.  We're
interested in the way these forms constitute new publics."

Plenary panels will explore such issues as: E-Race-ing the Digital; How
Wide is the Digital Divide; Authenticating Digital Art, Expression and
Cultural Hybridity; and Speculative Fictions/Imaging the Future. Breakout
sessions, designed for focused conversations with smaller groups of
conference participants, will address: Art and Hactivism; Funding the
Arts-Creative Capital; Digital Business-From Netrepreneurs to Corporations;
Hactivist Workshop-Organizing the Million Women March; Hate Speech; Job
Opportunities and Training; and Community Best Practices.  A keynote will be
presented by Walter Massey, president of Morehouse College.

"The ways in which we represent ourselves and use digital media raises
significant issues," said Anna Everett, professor at the University of
California at Santa Barbara and conference co-organizer.  "We need to begin
exploring answers to such important questions as 'What cultural and social
baggage do we carry  into the digital domain?' and 'How have minority
communities deployed digital tools to comment on digital culture, to
reconfigure the history of racism, and to claim a more powerful voice in
shaping the future?'"

While the event is being planned within the academy, organizers have
invited a diverse group of speakers to address an equally diverse audience,
which will include scholars and teachers, professionals, artists, writers,
policy makers, social and cultural commentators, community leaders, and
young people. Confirmed speakers include:

Art Exhibition, Digital Salon, and Dance Performance
In coordination with the conference, a concurrent video show and digital
salon is being be curated at the LIST Center for the Visual Arts.  "The
exhibition will feature the work of innovators and visionary film, video,
new media, and website designers whose work deals specifically with the
intersection of race and technology," said Erika Muhammad, Ph.D. candidate
in Cinema Studies at NYU,  co-organizer of the conference, and curator of
the exhibition at LIST Visual Arts Center.

"In the ever-changing terrain of new media productivity, issues of race and
ethnicity ferment in digital space. Artists who tackle issues of race in
their work are faced with fresh challenges and opportunities as they build
and define what will be the most powerful networks on earth," Muhammad said.

Included in this digital salon, video program and soundscape are works by
artists who are building digital habitats and laying political foundations
through the use of hi-tech documents. Spanning the past 20 years, the
program will include experimental film and video, net.art, CD-ROMS, websites
and aural mixes.

A performance event featuring DJs and live video mixing by Vivek Bald (DJ
Siraiki), Beth Coleman (aka DJ Singe), and Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky)
will be held for conference participants and students on the evening of
Saturday, 28 April 2001.  MIT Assistant Professor Tommy DeFrantz will also
perform "My Digital Body," an original dance piece developed for the event.

Pre-Conference Workshop
A pre-conference workshop for Boston metropolitan and New England regional
educators, artists, and technology center directors will be held on
Wednesday, 11 April 2001, 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Bartos Theater, MIT Campus.
"We want to spotlight community 'best practices' and encourage conversations
among the dozens of Boston-area technology centers that support minority
communities," said Paula Robinson, founder of the Institute for the
Integration of Technology and Education and conference co-organizer.

All events are free and open to the public.  To learn more and register,

Subject: Immediacy -Call For Submissions

Immediacy, the on-line forum of The New School Media Studies 
Department is currently seeking contributions (text, film/video, 
still images, audio) to its new issue on History and Memory. In this 
issue, we plan to reconsider the salient subject of history and 
memory some ten years after the subject was at its hottest in 
American intellectual circles. Have we found the answers to those 
questions that once seemed so urgent? Did we not simply end up 
confining memory to identity politics and history to conservative 
ideology in public discourse? The problems of remembering/forgetting 
and reconciliation are still highly relevant and with us today. And 
how about memory-as-the-unspeakable, and historical understanding as 
the basis of democratic society, just to mention a few possible 
avenues for inquiry? 
In the new issue of Immediacy we propose to take up these subjects 
again, particularly from the perspective of their representation in 
various media. We invite contributions in any format that we can 
channel through our website, such as text, film, video, audio and 
still images, and including reviews of recent books, movies, 
exhibitions, websites or other initiatives. Please contact us via e-
mail at immediacy {AT} usa.net. For our earlier issue on the Avantgarde 
and our new issue, Media Mix 2000, as well as our policy on 
submissions see our website: http://www.newschool.edu/mediastudies/immediacy.

Dream Trackers
Yapa Art and Knowledge of
the Australian Desert

Fifty-one Warlpiri artists and story-tellers lead us on a journey through
their ritual painting, singing and dancing, on the tracks of their Dreaming
Ancestors, who are embodied in the land.

Developed for the Lajamanu Community of Central Australia by Virtuel Bazaar
and Dr Barbara Glowczewski, senior anthropologist at the Centre National de
la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France), with support from the Institut de
Recherche et DĂ©veloppement (IRD), the Direction de la Musique et de la Danse
du MinistÚre de la Culture and the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris, France.

Yapa is a central Australian word for ‘indigenous people’. The Aboriginal
notion of jukurrpa is the dream as a parallel space-time, a past, present
and virtual memory of the earth and the cosmos. It manifests itself as
Ancestral and Eternal Beings, the myths of their adventures, the trails of
their travels, the rituals, sites or sacred objects that embody their living

As part of its initiative Local and Indigenous Knowledge Systems (LINKS),
and in association with the Warnayaka Art Centre and the French
anthropologist/producer Barbara Glowczewski, UNESCO presents this
outstanding cd-rom, the result of her many years of work with the Warlpiri
people of the Lajamanu community.

This cd-rom represents only a fraction of the complex cultural, ritual and
ecological knowledge of the Warlpiri people. It is based on the network of
the fourteen Dreamings most often painted by the people of Lajamanu. In
fact, all named things in nature and culture have a Dreaming, or jukurrpa,
so there are thousands of stories and named Dreaming places marking the
Warlpiri land, their ‘living book’, as they call it.

The transposition of Aboriginal cognitive mapping into an interactive map
allows the user to experience the interconnectivity of indigenous cosmology,
emulated by the logic of cd-roms or the Web. Unlike conventional linear
text, multimedia is an ideal tool to convey the dynamism and wealth of oral
traditions. By strengthening
the dialogue between elders and youth, it reinforces the transmission of
indigenous knowledge.

* Travel in the desert country of the Warlpiri men and women
* Discover the many links among animals, plants, places and people
* Explore hundreds of Dreaming stories, song-lines and paintings
* Read the signs painted on bodies, boards or canvas
* Study films of sand stories, hand signs and ritual dancing
* Learn Warlpiri words and meanings
* Sarch notebooks on art, colonization, healing or land-rights
* Understand the taboo on the deceaseds’ names and pictures

Dream Trackers: Yapa Art and Knowledge of the Australian Desert has been
developed in collaboration with fifty-one artists and story-tellers who,
with the elders of the community, have carefully verified the contents. To
respect Aboriginal ethics, the cd-rom has been designed to allow the user to
cover up images of the dead, which become taboo during the mourning period.

The cd-rom, in use by the Lajamanu school since 1998, was developed
primarily to restitute to the Warlpiri their recorded heritage. The
Community Council and the artists represented by the Warnayaka Art Centre
decided to make the cd-rom available to universities, museums, and other
cultural institutions. The Warnayaka Art Centre receives part of the income
from distribution.

‘The author has succeeded in untangling the skein of myths based on the
dream (jukurrpa in the Warlpiri language) that govern the life of Aboriginal
people. But the dreaming in question is different from the one known to
Westerners: dreaming is a “virtual space-time” in which all that exists on
earth has been created at the onset by totemic heroes – plants, animals or
representations of rain or fire. As they travelled, the ancestors left many
traces of their passage in the form of hills, rocks or waterholes
people that exist are thus the incarnation, the heroes, of these myths. But
they must practise rituals in order to “reanimate the principles of these
dreamings”, a virtual matrix of life and forms.’

En coopération avec le CNRS

UNESCO, 15 -18 Mai 2001


Les populations autochtones comptent aujourd’hui quelque 300 millions de
personnes dans plus de 70 pays sur tous les continents, et représentent plus
de 5000 langues et cultures. Dans le cadre de la DĂ©cennie internationale des
populations autochtones du monde (1995-2004) et de l’AnnĂ©e des Nations Unies
pour le dialogue entre les civilisations (2001), la Division des politiques
culturelles de l’UNESCO organise conjointement avec le CNRS une
manifestation culturelle composée des deux événements suivants :

Salon du livre : «  Identités et Cultures autochtones »
Le livre apparaĂźt aujourd’hui comme un complĂ©ment de l'oralitĂ© et un support
de la mémoire autochtone. Le Salon mettra en évidence l'évolution de la
représentation de ces cultures et la force des nouvelles voix autochtones
qui s'expriment Ă  travers la recherche, l’essai, le roman ou la poĂ©sie. Les
Ɠuvres prĂ©sentĂ©es couvriront un large Ă©ventail de publications, du livre
d'art au roman, en passant par l'essai et le droit international. Des
écrivains et des conteurs seront invités à rencontrer le public. Les
Editions de l’UNESCO feront connaĂźtre leurs publications consacrĂ©es aux
cultures autochtones. Des maisons d'édition engagées dans la publication de
nouvelles collections présenteront des ouvrages consacrés à la défense de la
mémoire et des voix de ces peuples. De nouvelles idées de co-éditions
pourront naĂźtre des rencontres entre professionnels du livre.

Colloque international : « Identités autochtones : Paroles, Ecrits et
Nouvelles Technologies »
Le Colloque portera sur la sauvegarde, la transmission et les mutations des
cultures autochtones. Il réunira des universitaires, des experts, des
auteurs, des Ă©diteurs, autochtones et non autochtones. Il conduira Ă  la
prĂ©sentation de recommandations concrĂštes qui permettront d’esquisser des
lignes d’action pour le dĂ©veloppement culturel de ces communautĂ©s. Le
Colloque abordera Ă©galement les perspectives offertes par les nouvelles
technologies Ă  ces cultures souvent isolĂ©es, qui peuvent dĂ©sormais ĂȘtre en
contact avec le monde entier par vidéoconférences, Internet etc. Des projets
de collaboration (élaboration de CD Roms, collectes de données sur le
patrimoine traditionnel, programmes d'enseignement bilingue et d’échanges)
pourront résulter des rencontres des participants au Colloque.

Le Salon du livre et le Colloque tenteront de répondre au double défi qui
vise d’une part Ă  protĂ©ger la diversitĂ© culturelle et d’autre part Ă 
renforcer les liens entre culture et développement en stimulant le
renforcement des capacités locales et le partage des connaissances et des

(15 ET 16 MAI 2001)

Au seuil du XXIÚme siÚcle, la protection de la diversité culturelle, la
promotion du pluralisme et le dialogue entre les cultures et les
civilisations revĂȘtent une importance croissante. La Division des politiques
culturelles de l’UNESCO dĂ©ploie, dans le cadre de la DĂ©cennie internationale
des populations autochtones du monde (1995-2004), des efforts visant Ă 
favoriser la sauvegarde de l'identité de ces cultures et la promotion d'une
citoyenneté multiculturelle. Les Editions de l'UNESCO s'emploient à publier
des ouvrages consacrés à la protection de l'identité culturelle et
linguistique, Ă  lÂŽhistoire de ces peuples et de ces cultures et Ă 
l'expression contemporaine de leur créativité.

Certaines cultures ont été particuliÚrement ébranlées, voire menacées de
disparition au cours des siĂšcles, en particulier les cultures autochtones.
Un certain nombre de facteurs nouveaux et l'affirmation d'une identité
culturelle qui se réclame de la tradition tout en s'inscrivant dans la
modernité semblent porter l'espoir d'une reconnaissance de leurs valeurs, de
leurs cosmogonies et de leurs visions du monde.

Pour beaucoup de cultures autochtones, qui ont été marquées par la
colonisation, la discrimination et l'intolérance, le livre a été à la fois
source de bouleversements et de recomposition culturelle. Aujourd'hui, les
modes d'expression autochtones s'inscrivent dans une problématique nouvelle
qui met en évidence l'interaction et la complémentarité de l'oral et de

En outre, ces deux premiÚres journées viseront à mettre en évidence la
diversité des formes d'expression autochtone contemporaines. La réflexion
qui sera menée sur le Dit et l'Ecrit, devrait contribuer à faire prendre
conscience de la valeur de ces cultures ainsi que de l'importance de leur
apport Ă  la civilisation universelle.

(17 ET 18 MAI 2001)

Ces deux journĂ©es sont consacrĂ©es Ă  l’impact des nouvelles technologies
(multimĂ©dia, internet) sur la recherche et l’enseignement en anthropologie,
la muséologie et les nouveaux protocoles relatifs à la réappropriation de la
culture matérielle et intellectuelle par les populations concernées.

Les interventions s’appuieront sur la prĂ©sentation de documents interactifs
(CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, sites internet en ligne), bases de données informatiques
et éventuellement une vidéo-conférence avec une communauté aborigÚne.

La premiÚre journée, Protocoles de collaboration entre anthropologues,
peuples autochtones et Musées, sera consacrée aux enjeux scientifiques et
éthiques que représente la multiplication de sites internet qui divulguent
parfois une information non-authentique, préjudiciable aux groupes
autochtones. Nous examinerons la maniĂšre dont ces groupes se servent des
nouvelles technologies (en réalisant leurs propres sites internet, portails
d’accĂšs, productions multimĂ©dias) pour appuyer une revendication de
réappropriation des objets et des savoirs de leur culture au bénéfice de
leurs communautĂ©s. Sur la base d’expĂ©riences pilotes australiennes, un dĂ©bat
s’engagera sur l’instauration actuelle de la collaboration entre peuples
autochtones, anthropologues et musĂ©es. Des exemples d’autres pays
permettront d’élargir la discussion.

La matinĂ©e de la deuxiĂšme journĂ©e, Le multimĂ©dia pour l’enseignement et la
recherche sur les savoirs autochtones, sera consacrĂ©e, d’une part, au rĂŽle
des anthropologues dans les productions multimédias et les banques de
donnĂ©es sur internet, et d’autre part, Ă  l’interdisciplinaritĂ© qui engage
divers spécialistes à collaborer avec les populations étudiées, les musées
et les enseignants en vue d’élaborer des outils de mise en valeur des
recherches et des savoirs autochtones, qui puissent accompagner l’
enseignement de l’anthropologie et le rendre accessible à un public de non

L’aprùs-midi nous animerons une table-ronde sur le thùme Transmission des
savoirs traditionnels et questions Ă©thiques, qui sera suivie d’une synthĂšse
de la semaine et de recommandations.

Cette deuxiùme partie du colloque s’inscrit dans le cadre d’un PICS

Subject: Media Channel Update


>From anti-AIDS billboards adorning the highway in Togo, to laser
messages in Davos: Robert Atkins' latest News and Reviews.

Can globally shared concerns about media engage mass support and
inspire public action? Presenting 20 years of media declarations,
MediaChannel invites your comments, critiques and participation.

News, no longer just infotainment, has entered a state of pure promotion,
making it little more than propaganda, says Danny Schechter.

Breaking news stories about the media internationally,
from mainstream and alternative sources.


"Irresponsible international media may incite more violence than
the people with guns."

A strike by TV and film writers seems inevitable. Will
there be any movies to celebrate at next year's Oscars?

Twenty-four journalists were killed because of their work in 2000,
according to a new report from the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Russia's print media have been illegally taking payment for stories. But
without paid-for articles, many Russian newspapers could not survive.

In collaboration with the Australian curators Josephine Grieve and Linda
Wallace, the Netherlands Media Art Institute has organised the
exhibition hybrid<life>forms: Australian New Media Art. Most of the
Australian artists will be presenting new work which has never
previously been seen in Europe.
hybrid<life>forms takes the viewer into the lush undergrowth of
contemporary Australia: strange confessions, dark memories, hybrids. As
has been the case for its flora and fauna, Australia's isolation has had
peculiar effects on its artists too. They bring invisible life to the
surface in various ways, producing unexpected results.
The enormous diversity and vitality of technological growth is central
to hybrid<life>forms. Like Europe, Australia has been quick to pick up
on new developments. Australian artists immediately went in search of
the worlds in and behind the computer, reflecting upon and experimenting
with the complex distinctions and connections which created a sanctuary
for new visions. The artists in the exhibition reflect on both digital
media and cultural and social life.

Patricia Piccinini's work The Breathing Room reflects on the tensions
which arise as soon as new technological developments (electronics,
biochemical and gene technologies) enter everyday life. In "The
Breathing Room" we seen fragments of a body, moving pieces of skin,
accompanied by quiet breathing. What we see is recognisable, but not
wholly real. Suddenly, without any clear reason, the images appear to be
caught up in panic.

In her photo series west/ward/bound Brenda L Croft throws light on how
black and white live together in contemporary Australia. In general, the
Aboriginal people are portrayed as exotic, alien, other. With her work,
Croft makes it personal.

Justine Cooper's installation and videowork Rapt lets us see the inside
of the body. Making use of ‘Magnetic Resonance Imaging,’ Cooper scanned
her body. She manipulated the results into a poetic vision of a world in
which we literally live.

Tracey Moffatt, well known in The Netherlands, acquired wide recognition
with her videoworks Night Cries and Heaven. In her new work, Artist, in
collaboration with Gary Hillberg she sets before us the Hollywood
stereotype of the creative, tortured and suffering artist. Outtakes of
artists from classic Hollywood films, documentaries and TV programmes,
crossing the screen in quick montage, show us the different stages of
inspiration, creation, and subsequently the destruction of paintings. In
a comic manner, Artist breaks through the romantic aura that Hollywood
has created around artists.

After the production of a number of CD-roms, including Cyberflesh
Girlmonster and In my Gash, multimedia artist Linda Dement returns to
photography with her project Euridyce. Like her CD-roms, her digital
photographs exhibit her macabre and immediate manner of working. Seen
from a feminist perspective, representatives of "monstrous femininity"
encompass desires, revenge and violence. With Euridyce, Dement
demonstrates that photography still has much to offer. This serie of
images has been produced in response to Kathy Acker’s story Eurydice in
the Underworld.

This project is assisted by the Australia Council, the Australian
Government's arts funding & advisory body, through its Audience and
Market Development Division and New Media Arts Fund, the Prins Bernhard

The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 1:00 through 5:00 pm Free
