Subject: Announcing and 
Michael Mandiberg

"Paula Cooper Gallery"
32 N Moore, 6th Floor
May 18 - June 13 by appt.
Reception Friday, May 18 (6-9pm)

In 1936, Walker Evans photographed the Burroughs, a family of 
sharecroppers in Depression era Alabama.  In 1979, Sherrie Levine 
rephotographed Walker Evans' photographs from the monograph "First 
and Last."  In 2001, Michael Mandiberg scanned these same 
photographs, publishing them on the Web sites 
and - virtual galleries designed to facilitate 
the dissemination of these images as part of a commentary on how we 
arrive at information in this burgeoning digital age.

On you will find a browsable selection of these 
images, links to the high-resolution exhibition-quality images 
available for download and print-out, along with a certificate of 
authenticity for each image (that you print out and sign yourself) 
and, finally, directions on how to frame the image so that it will 
fulfill the requirements of the certificate.

By making the image's URL its title - with titles such as "Untitled 
(" - the images can be easily located and 
downloaded by anyone. By distributing the images online with 
certificates of authenticity, the images can be owned by anyone. 
Unlike the work of the late Felix Gonzalez-Torres - known for his 
spills of candy and stacks of paper from which the viewer can take a 
piece - Mandiberg's certificates are used to insure that each 
satellite image be considered equally authentic.  In the work of 
Gonzalez-Torres the sole certificate of authenticity, and thus, the 
right to reproduce the work, is sold like a traditional art object. 
Mandiberg's work assumes an explicit strategy to create a physical 
object with cultural value, but little or no economic value.

Michael Mandiberg is a conceptual artist who uses the net to explore 
issues surrounding commerce, labor, and language.  His ongoing 
project Shop Mandiberg is a fully functional e-commerce web site that 
markets and sells every last one of his personal possessions.  Shop 
Mandiberg ( has received 80,000 hits, and 
sold over 60 of his possessions to date.  His work has been written 
about by the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Berliner 
Zeitung,,, among others. His work is 
currently included in Net.Ephemera, curated by Mark Tribe at the 
Moving Image Gallery in New York.

Announcement: TECH FLESH

 Dear CTHEORY readers,

 We have just published on CTHEORY'S web site ( a
 series of articles and interviews devoted to a critical exploration
 of the Human Genome Project. This will be followed in early June by a
 special multimedia presentation of Tech Flesh by some really amazing
 new media artists, all of whom work to unconceal the uncertainty
 field of the gene.

 Here's the formal announcement:

 The triumph of biotechnology as the key emergent tendency of the 21st
 century indicates that we may be entering a final phase of
 technology--harvesting human flesh. Breeding virtual bodies better
 suited to the vectors and virtualities of post-biological life.

 Widely hyped as a "bible of life" and a "map" to the future of human
 evolution, the Human Genome Project throws into sharp ethical relief
 critical social issues raised by this newest phase in eugenic
 experimentation. Simultaneously speaking in terms of the language of
 facilitation (post-genetics as about the eradication of disease and
 the extension of the human life span) and the language of control
 (genetic sequencing as the latest pharmaceutical version of the
 social hygiene movement), the Human Genome Project with its vision of
 pure genes and designer biology raises again the specter of
 scientific hubris and the silent political interests of a potential
 genetic superclass.

 With the collaboration of Eugene Thacker (Rutgers University/Georgia
 Tech), this issue of CTHEORY is devoted to a diversity of critical
 perspectives on the promise and perils of the Human Genome Project.
 Here, artists, writers and theorists provide an alternative, critical
 vision of the genome and its infotech ideology.

 We are grateful for the active and generous support of Boston
 College, particularly the Department of Sociology and its Chair,
 Professor Stephen Pfohl, in developing this issue, and we very much
 appreciate the technical assistance of Jeffrey Wells and Carl

  In June, 2001, the multimedia version of Tech Flesh
 (, curated by Arthur and
 Marilouise Kroker and Timothy Murray, will be published and hosted by
 Cornell University's Electronic Publishing Program.

Subject: Aesthetics and education?

What is VAC-UP? 

VAC-UP stands for "Virtual Aesthetic Curriculum User
Program." It is a PROformance designed by artofficial
construction media that attempts to address in both
pragmatic and symbolic ways problematic aspects of
aesthetic training in institutions of higher
education, such as job placement. 

What is "problematic" about the "aesthetic training in
institutions of higher learning"? 

Well, acm believes that there are many aspects of the
education process that are problematic for aspiring
cultural producers. There has also been some
discussion of such problems in various other forums
that suggests that it is not just us complaining. Some
of the aspects we would like to address are: the
contradictions in the inverted relationship between
rising educational costs and decreases in "real" work
opportunities; the small number of jobs available
compared to the large amount of recruiting; the
justification of these trends with neo-social
Darwinism (the survival of the fittest) coupled with
blatant social engineering. 

Does VAC-UP offer solutions, or just complain? 

VAC-UP is, of course, not an entity in the individual
sense of the word. VAC-UP cannot offer solutions, per
se, but is rather designed to aid in the development
of possible solutions through an opening up of
discourse about education. So, from acm's perspective,
this is part of a solution, but we would caution that
any interpretation of both problems and solutions
include their political economy. 

What does ACM mean by "PROformance"? 

acm's use of the term "PROformance" is meant to
suggest the connection between VAC-UP as a cultural
product, and VAC-UP as a professional endeavor by ACM
as educational practitioners. The performance method
of VAC-UP does not preclude the affect of such actions
beyond "the stage" so to speak. This is merely a
continuation of established ideas about art, critical
theory, and specificity (Joseph Kosuth, etc..)coupled
with recent developments in contemporary aesthetics
(Andrea Fraser,
etc...)and education. 

Can ACM put these words into action? 

Yes and no. ACM is committed to the goals set forth in
VAC-UP and ACM members will do what they can to
institute VAC-UP concepts in their own professional
lives. ACM is also actively pursuing the
implementation of VAC-UP as a collaborative venture,
and will work with institutions and organizations in
just about any capacity willing to take VAC-UP or
similar programs on.

Subject: Critical Theory and Experimental Music (Australia)

below this call).

I am seeking abstracts for papers to be included on a panel on 'Critical
Theory and Experimental Music'.

Recent experimental music, especially in the electronic domain, has of
late shown itself to be theoretically informed. Artists such as DJ
Spooky can regularly be heard citing various texts from the Critical
Theory canon, and the number of labels or various artists compilations
themed around the works of Theorists and Philosophers is ever increasing
(cf "In memoriam Gilles Deleuze", the label Mille plateaux and its
offshoot Ritornell to name but a few).

Papers are sought which investigate this intersection between
experimental music and critical theory.
Questions to be addressed might include but are not restricted to:

- --How does theory inform music and what kind of music does this produce?
Does such music differ substantially in its intentionality?
- --How are the ideas of various philosophers and theorists translated
into a musical vocabulary?
- --Do works that attempt to express in music the musical ideas contained
in the written texts of various philosophers convey the sense of the
latter sense more faithfully than the original?
- --To what extent does theoretically-informed music inform or transform
- --How do we read music theoretically?

Submissions should also take into account the general theme of the
conference (details below).

Abstracts should be sent to:

before May 30th 2001.

Queries on THIS CALL ONLY should be addressed to this same address.

A final decision on papers for this panel will be made soon after to
leave any rejected papers the opportunity of resubmitting as an
individual papers before the major conference call deadline.

QUERIES ABOUT THE CONFERENCE itself (details below) should be addressed
to Ian Buchnan (University of Tasmania) whose contact details follow the
conference info.

"What's Left of Theory?"

University of Tasmania, Hobart December 8-10 2001

Keynote Speaker: Fredric Jameson

Fredric Jameson once said, we can't really know what a thing is until it
has become something else. It might therefore be said that theory's truth
will only be available to us when it has ceased to be. Which prompts the
question: is theory still alive and well, or has it indeed mutated into
something else? If it has vanished did it leave a trace? Is it its
successor stained with its legacy? But just as importantly, we can perhaps
now, for the first time, determine what theory really is/was.

Fredric Jameson also said that in his opinion, theory itself is a product
of a leftist impulse in critical thinking. Thus despite all the criticism
that has been heaped on theory's progenitor structuralism for its
apolitical approach to analysis, it was in Jameson's view at least, born
of Marxist modes of thinking. This gives our question above quite a
different spin: is theory a leftist enterprise? Or perhaps we should ask,
was it a leftist enterprise? And if it was, is its successor still
leftist? Or has there been a swerve to the right in critical thinking to
go along with the movement beyond theory?

Papers are called for that address these questions in an interdisciplinary
fashion. The Deadline for abstracts is July 20 2001.

Please contact Ian Buchanan, School of English and European Languages
and Literatures, The University
of Tasmania.

Theme of the Summer 2001 CyberForum

"Lost Worlds of the Internet: Stalking the Ruins of Virtual Reality"

Nearly a decade ago, in the first rush of enthusiasm for Virtual Reality,
hundreds of 3D worlds were launched on the Internet. As commercial
exploitation began to dominate the Web, public attention never
quite reached these islands of 3D experimentation - some of which are
unremarkable and some of which are exquisite gems of low-bandwidth VR.
These virtual art works fell into obscurity even their authors abandoned
them for Web commerce and mainstream activities.

The Summer 2001 CyberForum will conduct biweekly expeditions into
these "lost worlds of the Internet." We will put on avatars and visit these
worlds in real time as we chat with the author-artists who conceived them
and with critics who are interested in the 3D Web.

August 16th to 19th, 2001 and is part of the "garage" festival in 
Stralsund. Organizers of the "g-niale" are garage and Filmclub 
Blendwerk e.V.
The topic of 2001 is: “between image and sound" as a conscious 
discussion of perception of individual media and its interaction with 
film and beyond. Thereby illustrating seeing and hearing in a wider 
sense - by emphasizing or consistent dropping of one of the two 
elements. Looking for forms of relations between the acoustic and the 
visual level. Impacts, functions, mediation and presentation,
noise and story-telling - what happens between sound and image?
Students of film and art schools and professional filmmakers of all 
genres are invited to send their newly produced short films (max. 20 
minutes) to the festival. No restrictions apply to the genre of 
submitted works. The preselected films will be presented to an

Die Karawane für die Rechte der Flüchtlinge und MigrantInnen
The Voice Africa Forum e.V. Refugee Human Right Group (Jena)
Flüchtlingsinitiative Brandenburg (Potsdam)
Bündnis gegen Residenzpflicht (Berlin)


"Movement is our right!"
17. bis 19. Mai auf dem Schlossplatz:
Bundesweite Aktionstage gegen die Residenzpflicht

Einladung zur Pressekonferenz am Dienstag, den 15.05.2001, 11.00 Uhr
Ort: Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte, Greifswalder Str. 4, 10405

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Unter dem Motto "Movement is our Right" fordern Flüchtlinge aus dem gesamten
Bundesgebiet die Abschaffung der Residenzpflicht. Um dieses Menschenrecht
öffentlich einzuklagen, finden vom 17. bis 19. Mai auf dem Schlossplatz in
Berlin-Mitte die Aktionstage gegen die Residenzpflicht statt.

Der Schossplatz wurde aufgrund der zentralen Lage gewählt, außerdem bietet
er den Flüchtlingen die Möglichkeit ihren Protest sichtbar zu machen.
Flüchtlingsunterkünfte sind in der Regel abgelegen oder mitten im Wald, so
dass die BewohnerInnen gezwungen sind isoliert zu leben. Die Residenzpflicht
verbietet Flüchtlingen den Landkreis, indem ihre Unterkunft liegt, ohne
Erlaubnis zu verlassen. Dadurch wird ihnen das Menschenrecht auf
Bewegungsfreiheit genommen. Auf diese Weise kann die Ausländerbehörde jeden
Schritt der Flüchtlinge überwachen. Den Flüchtlingen wird jegliche
Privatsphäre genommen.

Von Donnerstag bis Samstag ist der Schlossplatz rund um die Uhr zentraler
Veranstaltungsort. Am Donnerstag übergibt eine Flüchtlingsdelegation ein
Memorandum zur Abschaffung der Residenzpflicht an den Bundestag. Im
Anschluss daran findet zwischen 11.00 und 13.00 Uhr am Pariser Platz eine
Kundgebung statt. Am Samstag beginnt um 12.OO Uhr am Alexanderplatz die
bundesweite Demonstration gegen die Residenzpflicht. Auf dem Schlossplatz
finden Podiumsdiskussionen und workshops statt. Am Donnerstag und Freitag
Abend sind Filme und Konzerte geplant.

Aus diesem Anlass laden wir Sie am Dienstag, den 15.05.2001, zu einer
Pressekonferenz um 11.00 Uhr ins Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte,
Greifswalder Str. 4, in Prenzlauer Berg ein.

Wenn Sie an der Pressekonferenz teilnehmen möchten, bitten wir Sie herzlich
uns per e-mail Bescheid zu geben (Pressekontakt:

Auf der Pressekonferenz am 15. Mai stehen Ihnen von den Veranstaltern Gaston
Edua und Osaren Igbinoba, The Voice Africa Forum (Jena), sowie Betty
Muriithi und Christopher Nsoh, Flüchtlingsinitiative Brandenburg (Potsdam)
zur Verfügung. Juristische Fragen beantworten AnwältInnen des
Republikanischen Anwaltsvereins und der Berliner

Subject: CFP: Research E-ditions 2001

The Center for Digital Discourse and Culture (CDDC) in the College of Arts 
and Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University is 
accepting new manuscripts for digital modes of publication in its Research 
E-ditions series. The CDDC ( ) has been in operation 
for over two years, and it publishes hypertext journals, hosts digital 
research archives,  and cooperates with many international cyberculture 
organizations.  You can find examples of our Research E-ditions at .

As an entirely digital point-of-publication, the CDDC will review and then 
produce professional academic research works--either single-authored or 
edited collections--in a digital format. Proposals could take the form of 
an "e-book" that simply makes available a scholarly monograph in online 
format, or a collection of academic papers organized around a central 
theme, or a fully hypertextual experiment with new forms of digital 
discourse. Proposals could also be made for hosting or mirroring material 
that you have on your site or for community building or teaching resources 
like bibliographies or  discussion systems for your specific community.

Arrangements can be made for "print on demand" (POD) paper versions of 
these works, but the main focus of the CDDC is to explore the new 
communicative potentials of hypertext, hypermedia, and web-centered 
publication. The review processes will be as extensive and rigorous as 
those experienced in print academic communication,  but it too will be 
conducted in a fully on-line format.

All topics are potentially of interest in the Research E-ditions series, 
however, we are particularly interested in manuscripts, digital archives, 
and hypertexts from the humanities and social sciences relating to the 
areas of cyberculture, social theory, literary studies, digital art, and 
cultural studies. In addition, the CDDC is committed to Proposals from 
applied and natural sciences that relate directly to the fields of 
bioinformatics, energy and environmental studies, and information 
technology and communications.

  To propose a publication project, or to get more information, contact the 
Center for Digital Discourse and Culture at .
