ncc48 stands for 48 hours of non-stop information, documentation,
discussions, reflections, and productions in analog and virtual space. the
topic is "the internet in the context of art". Condensing information is
the intention of ncc48, the congress is the medium. Over a time-line of 48
hours international artists, scientists, theorists, computer experts and
the scheme-team will discuss, report and reflect on topics succeeding one
another in a temporal rhythm and forming the "content back bone" of ncc48.
There will also be concurrent workshops, chats, lectures and presentations
of networkart projects.

The whole programm of ncc 48 is set up as a network of interrelated issues
addressed by the also interrelated designed contributions of all
co-operators, contributors and the audience.

The following 48 HOUR SPEAKERS have been invited to address those
interelations and to constantly moderate the whole process of carrying out
the ncc 48 netART community congress both on site and online: Josephine

The application of open source models on the internet in "net" architecture
& "net" art may well be one of the most innovative scenarios for the future
and will radically change the current situation. But how compatible is the
"open source model", with all its guidelines ("open source definition") and
as a working model,  with net art projects? How could the further
development of "free net art" be conceived in analogy to the development of
"free software"?

Once again, the metaphor 'web' has to be tested: In which way have the
channels of communication and electronic exchangeable forms changed the
idea of what neighbourhood, seen as a cultural overlapping and
transgression, can be? Why are the often geographically closest regions
basically a blank spot on the map of net based communication and
production? Does it still make any sense to think about processes of
cultural exchange in this way?

_transfer.net_ deals with the framework conditions of everyday/popular net
cultures (i.e. net cultures having, among other things, always some sort of
economic motivation)  and the increasing  intermeshing of entertainment and
consumption cultures on the one hand and net cultures on the other. How are
the popularization of connectivity ("get connected", Nokia) and the
individualization of presence on the net  ("your personal homepage")
affecting the framework conditions for all types of net art? Is it possible
to maintain a counter-cultural net art or community concept in a time when
net-based discourses are increasingly becoming merchandise-type discourses
 ("satisfy your lust", Siemens)?

The project is mainly dedicated to the relationships between old (physical)
and new (simulated) spaces -- referring to spaces in their capacity as
cultural terrain. How can narratives be delivered in new spaces? How are
constructions of  "We" developing in these new spaces? What does "presence"
mean under such conditions? What does "public" mean and what would  "the
private" be under such conditions?

Although the creative process is liberated from the limitations of matter,
it nevertheless is dependent on the medium of the work. Comprehensive
technical knowledge is imperative. Furthermore a theoretical programmatic
grasp of net.spaces is necessary, whereby techno-aesthetics in its severity
places the highest demands. And in the end the question: do the present
instruments of discursive forums (such as mailings lists) suffice or should
we advocate "The Birth of the Net-Gallery" which describes that system of
power, deciding on art and non-art? Probing the necessity of elaborating a
productive and distributive apparatus that is to envelope the net-work of
art (collectors, dealers, curates, critics, ncc48 organizers, etc.).

Macau is a small city. So is the city's number of video artists. Tracing
back Macau's development of video art is difficult; Certain figures
appeared during certain periods of time, made some noise, and retreated.
In the early nineties, the Macau Arts Institute organized the city's first
course in video production. Some of the artists who went abroad for
studies in film and video art began to return to Macau in the

The videos showcased in "At Least We Have Them" begin with works produced
from the eighties onwards. No commonality is found in these works other
than that they are elementarily amateur in production and presented as
alternative expression, including that of narration, experimentation,
documentary and realism.

"At Least We Have Them" is organized by the Associacao Audio-Visual Cut,
whose on-going efforts of promoting video art to the Macau public has

Far off of any cultural funding or corporate resources, web user
communities in the last 10 years have opened territories of radically new
cultural production. At the same time, they have challenged the economical
power positions of large corporations. The web gives it's users access to
large-scale distribution channels and enables them to freely share
information regardless of commercial interests. While for online artists
thus the conventional functions of dealers and distributors in certain
ways become obsolete, still no economy is established, which would reward
their highly relevant cultural achievements.

Copyleft wants to provide the framework for a cultural production online,
which explores the new possibilities of functioning outside of the
traditional parameters of the copyright system, the art market and the
music industry. Many artist choosing the internet as their artistic tool
are not interested in protecting their results with Copyrights. The
possibilities which the web provides for them is the copying, forwarding,
or even ­ as with the Linux software ­ continue developing and changing it
with other people.

The copyleft panel wants to discuss forms of cultural economies, which are
appropriate to the needs of the artists and cultural producers in new
media. Is there a cultural economy beyond the elitist exclusivity of the
visual art market and the mainstream dictated music industry?

In the copyleft space visitors are invited to music and video
performances, which will be copylefted and freely accessible online. The
digitalized elements of the performances will be re-used by the following
performers and worked into new copyleft pieces the next night. Late at
night the Basel electronic music lable Sofa will spin some chill sounds.
On Sunday copyleft and [plug in] will offer a copyleft-future-brunch with
an open discussion on scenarios for the future, plans, hopes, requests,

With mobile phones the visitors can send SMS, which will be rendered as
sound files and make an impact on the development of the copyleft works.

The events will be streamed on radio several radio stations. For current
information check: http://www.copyleft.cc events or
http://www.weallplugin.org news.

Economically, the audience can contribute to the event via telephone: by
calling 0901-101 101 an amount of CHFr. 20.- will be transfered from the
callers phone bill to copyleft. The caller can choose to become a member
of copyleft.cc or simply support the events. (Calls possible only from
within Switzerland).

sides of the coin of critical cultural production ­ including the open
source context: he harshly criticizes the prevailing capitalist mechanisms
while acknowledging, that he himself is a perfect product of this capitalist
development, and even fosters it by displaying flexibility and doing without

sincere apologies for cross-postings -

25 October - 25 November 2001

The Ludwig Museum Budapest - Museum of Contemporary Art, in collaboration
with C3: Center for Culture & Communication and InterAccess Toronto,
within the framework of the Budapest Autumn Festival, presents the
exhibition and event series entitled Digitized Bodies - Virtual
Spectacles. One of the primary objectives of the Digitized Bodies -
Virtual Spectacles project is, on the one hand, the evolution of a kind of
interdisciplinary communication, and on the other hand, the presentation
of such artworks that demonstrate the transformation of our constructed
image of the human body under the influence of medical technology. The
exhibition - and the project in its entirety - seek the answer to the same
question, in attempting to examine our metamorphosising notions in
accordance with the accelerating development of the various technologies,
and to present how artists, theoreticians and scientists acknowledge and
evaluate the digitalization of our culture.

2001 Budapest Autumn Festival

An International touring exhibition/ Symposium/ Performance series/
CD-ROM/ Book/ and ON-LINE Symposium featuring the works of SIX Canadian


for cultural events and the dissemination of contemporary art.  C3: CENTRE
FOR CULTURE AND COMMUNICATION is an International production centre and
venue for advanced digital research.

THE DIGITIZED BODIES - VIRTUAL SPECTACLES project, investigates ways in
which rapidly evolving technologies affect our perception of our bodies,
our lives, our imagination  in fact our very future. It asks critical

	-How has contemporary techno-science refigure the already complex
dichotomies of nature Vs artifice:  real Vs virtual;  body Vs embodiment?

	-How do we decipher the ambiguities that surround the documented
data body?

	-How can we continue to use the term "intimate" (perception), in
an age when Barbara Stafford has written that: "the computer-mediated
milieu renders the body nakedly public?"

The questions Czegledy poses are hugely significant in this complex time
which surrounds us. In her early writing Czegledy presciently enquired
"How do we preserve our individual integrity without becoming [mere]
electronic spectacles?"

Subject: High Sweat Tech Shop Street Performance

Multi-Media Performance: Thursday, October 18, 2001, at 8pm An evening
outdoor performative event at the famous "Lilli Ann Mural Building" in the
Mission District, a historic landmark colonized by the dot-com industry.
Los Cybrids, as multi-lingual analog tour guides, will combine live
performance, video montages and pre-recorded audio, juxtaposing issues of
race and class in a globalizing world where laborers and computers are
equally disposable. Large-scale projected video images on the exterior
wall of the Lilli Ann Building create a digital tour of the information
technology (IT) industry through images of manufacturing in Silicon Valley
and Maquiladoras in Guadalajara ("the Silicon Valley of Mexico");
corporate headquarters in the Bay Area; world financial centers; border
crossings; and IT work places. The video posits the promise of the IT
revolution against the actuality of manufacturing processes, highlighting
labor issues, environmental health and safety issues, the ecological
impact of computers and immigration trends. At the Lilli Ann mural; 18th
and Harrison Sts., San Francisco. Free Admission.

This lecture focuses on the privacy implications of several pieces of
Canadian legislation. It will touch upon the Canadian copyright laws (our
own DMCA), the debate over the public or private nature of court records
(what are the implications of this choice?), and the overlapping
anti-terrorism and money laudering legislaitons. Its goal is to increase
our knowledge and foment awareness of the privacy dimensions of these
bills. Ken Anderson will address these issues from a legal standpoint and
will examine their implications for our private life.
