MiDiHy is pleased to announce its contribution to the _ncc 48 -- netART
community congress_ being held in Graz from October 25, 2001 to October 27,
2001. 
Thanks to the co-operation with Station Rose, Frankfurt, the whole programme,
including talks, presentations and a streaming event, will be webcasted, thus
implementing the engaged discourses on the net into the net itself. 

We invite you to take advantage of this _transfer.streaming_ on October 26,
2001, starting at 4:00 pm cest and continuing untill 7:45 pm cest.

As part of _transfer.streaming_ Station Rose will be realising their Web Cast

|--- _transfer.net_
- -----------------------------

_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)? What meaning is possibly left, against this background, for
strategies such as  appropriation, irony, fake, subversion, diversification or
for something like (sub-cultural) counter-information?

DOLORES FROM 10h to 22H

Once upon a time in a not so faraway free trade zone at the northern edge of 
Mexico, a woman who cobbled machines together for a living was accused of 
trouble making at her job. Her boss locked her up in an office without food 
or water or a phone. He tried over and over to cajole her into signing a 
letter of resignation. He watched her to see if she would break down. She 
held out for twelve hours, and later she sued the company. Her boss told the 
judge that she was crazy and that it never happened. No one would claim to 
have seen her. 

Dolores from 10h to 22h is based on a story that no one saw.

On November 22nd, you can see what happened. 


Dolores from 10h to 22h is a net.performance by Coco Fusco and Ricardo 
Dominguez that will be broadcast live via internet on November 22nd, 2001 
from Kiasma, Helsinki’s Museum of Contemporary Art. 

To view the performance live and add your comments to the chat, log on to

DOLORES DE 10H A 22H

Una vez en una zona de libre comercio no muy lejana del borde norteño 
mexicano, acusaron a una mujer ensambladora de maquinas de hacer problema en 
su trabajo. Su jefe la encerró en una oficina sin alimento, agua o teléfono. 
El hombre la presionaba para ver si la mujer finalmente se arrepentía de lo 
que había hecho. Aguantó durante doce horas, después de aceptarlo demandó a 
la compañía. El jefe se refirió al juez asegurando que la mujer estaba loca y 
que eso jamás había sucedido. Nadie podría afirmar haberla visto.

DOLORES de 10h hasta 22h esta basada en una historia que nadie nunca vió.

El 22 de Noviembre podrás ver lo que sucedió.

Declaración de los Artistas acerca de la Cultura de Vigilancia

En la Cultura de Vigilancia que tenemos hoy, la cultura Net vacila entre la 
narrativa del Terror y la narrativa del Placer.

Según la narrativa del terror, la proliferación de cámaras fotográficas 
significa potencia y seguridad.  Algunos se sienten seguros al saber que todo 
está siendo observado o vigilado. Más aún, es sentirse con poder el saber que 
al hacer click en un botón se está teniendo acceso a un mundo convertido a 
pura información.

Según la narrativa del placer, la proliferación de juegos, los espectáculos 
voyerísticos y los decorados virtuales que han transformado nuestro 
imaginario cultural conducen al un disfrute elevado y diversificado del 
deleite. Algunos se sienten con poder al tener la posibilidad de observar o 
vigilar el momento más privado de una persona, aunque sea obviamente una 
simulación.  Los paisajes de las pantallas en un mundo vigilado presentan una 
visualización que no termina solo en mostrar sujetos ofreciéndose a sí mismos 
a nuestra contemplación. Así, la política invasora de mirar o vigilar es 
normalizada por el eroticismo del exhibicionismo.

Coco Fusco y Ricardo Dominguez




Artists’ Statement on Surveillance Culture

In today’ s culture of surveillance, net.culture vacillates between the 
narrative of Terror and the narrative of Pleasure.

According to the narrative of Terror, the proliferation of cameras equals 
power and security. Some feel safe if they know that everything is watched. 
Even more feel empowered knowing that a click on a button equals access to a 
world converted into pure information.

According to the narrative of Pleasure, the proliferation of games, 
voyeuristic spectacles and virtual scenarios  that have transformed our 
cultural imaginary lead to heightened and diversified enjoyment.  Some feel 
empowered by the ability to watch what looks like anyone’s most private 
moment, however obvious the simulation. The screenal landscapes of the 
surveyed world present a never-ending display of subjects offering themselves 
to our gaze. Thus, the politics of invasive looking is normalized by the 
erotics of exhibitionism.

Subject: Engaged journalism about climate conference in Marrakech

Press release - Marrakech - 27 October 2001 - please distribute widely


Engaged journalism about climate conference in Marrakech
http://climate.indymedia.org 


During the next two weeks a team form Engage! Tactical Media will be
covering the climate conference in Marrakech through the internet. The
journalists will publish their critical analyses, the interviews with the
stakeholders, the action reports and their diaries on
http://climate.indymedia.org. In the mean time they will be working on a
documentary film about 'carbon trading'.

The Engage! crew is driven by their dislike of the unwillingness of the
International Community to address the Climate Crisis. The reduction
targets are too low and the proposed measurements ineffective.

The aim of Engage! will be to give voice to the least heard groups: people
from the south and grass-roots environmentalists.

The trading in 'air' will be the primary target. All the technical details
about the emissions trading still have to be filled in. The biggest
polluters of the atmosphere will profit the most from the proposed
reduction mechanisms. The need to take firm domestic action ebbs away due
to the possibility of emission trading and to the fact that the reduction
percentages are very low.

The implementation of market-based mechanisms is a trend witch fits
perfectly in the neo liberal global economy. Whether the pollution caused
by market based economy can be solved by the same measurements that
created it, remains an unanswered question. Big companies and accountancy
firms have already set up different lobby groups because they see ways to
make money in this multi-billion-dollar emission-trading-game. The climate
crisis looks like it has stopped being an environmental problem, it is a
new way to make money.

Engage! Tactical Media has worked at the previous climate conferences in
The Hague (November 2000) and Bonn (July 2001). Engage! travelled to
Marrakech by train as a possible way to help reduce CO2 emissions.

PRESSEMITTEILUNG

transmediale.02
[go public!]
5.-10. Februar 2002
Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt


Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
 liebe Kollegen,

 das internationale Medienkunst-Festival transmediale, ein Projekt der
Berliner Kulturveranstaltungs-GmbH, wird im Februar 2002 erstmals in
Kooperation mit dem Haus der Kulturen der Welt stattfinden.

 Das Haus der Kulturen der Welt wird auch Hauptveranstaltungsort der
transmediale.02 sein: Vom 5. bis 10. Februar 2002 sind Konferenz,
Workshops, Praesentationen und Wettbewerb sowie Media Lounge dort zu
finden.

 Zum ersten Mal wird in Berlin eine umfangreiche Ausstellung realisiert,
die aktuelle Positionen der internationalen Medienkunst zeigt. Die
transmediale.02 praesentiert interaktive Installationen, die die Besucher
zum aktivem Handeln anregen. Netzwerk-, Video- und Klang-Installationen
setzen neue aesthetische Konzepte mithilfe digitaler Technologien um. Die
Ausstellung wird vom 5. bis 24. Februar 2002 im Haus der Kulturen der Welt
zu sehen sein. (John-Foster-Dulles-Allee, 10557 Berlin-Tiergarten)

'Go public!' ist das Thema der Konferenz und es zieht sich wie ein roter
Faden durch das Festivalprogramm der transmediale.02. 'Go public!' zitiert
ironisch einen Begriff aus der New Economy und fordert als Festivalmotto
Kuenstler, Fachbesucher und Publikum dazu auf, an die Oeffentlichkeit zu
gehen und neue Ideen fuer die Gestaltung und Nutzung des oeffentlichen
Raumes im digitalen Zeitalter zu entwickeln - im Netz, in den Medien, auf
der Strasse.

 Das Festivalprogramm und weitere Informationen zur transmediale.02 sowie
die Moeglichkeit, sich zu akkreditieren, erhalten Sie Anfang Dezember. Wir
freuen uns, wenn wir Sie im naechsten Jahr wieder bei der transmediale
begruessen können.

 Mit freundlichen Gruessen

PRESS RELEASE

transmediale.02
[go public!]
5 -10 February 2002
Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt


 Dear Madam, dear Sir,
 dear colleagues,

 the international media art festival transmediale, a project by Berliner
Kulturveranstaltungs-GmbH, is proud to announce its co-operation with the
Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. The Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW)
is a highly recognized major venue. Set within the political centre of
Germany, the Reichstags-area in Berlin, the stylish HKW building will host
the transmediale international media art festival (5 - 10 February 2002)
and the international media art exhibition (5 - 24 February 2002) in
February 2002.

 The transmediale international media art exhibition will be Berlin's first
extensive media art exhibition and is an important addition to the
transmediale programme. The transmediale exhibition will present internet-,
video- and sound-installations, highlighting new aesthetic concepts using
digital technologies.

 The up-coming festival transmediale.02 will feature conferences,
workshops, presentations, a 'hands-on' media lounge and the presentation of
the transmediale awards. Running through the festival programme as a
thematic guide line, next year's festival motto is: 'Go public!' Citing a
phrase predominantly associated with the stock market, 'Go public!' is an
appeal to artists and audience alike to [re-]appropriate public space via
the aesthetic transformation of New Media.

 The festival will provide a focus highlighting the autonomous use of
digital technologies as a means of expression, exhibition and publication
by individuals or individual groups. What are the new spaces offered by New
Media? Are there new forms of participation? Within the global society, is
there a public sphere to "go public" to?

 The festival programme and further information about transmediale.02 as
well as accreditation forms will be available by December 2001. We would
welcome your participation and are looking forward to seeing you during
next year's transmediale!

 With best regards,

'end repeat' Interstanding 4

http://www.interstanding.ee/intro.html

Interstanding 4 consists from traditional conference and exhibition, the
last will untraditionally occupy also various types of spaces outside the
gallery.

Time: 1.- 18. 11.2001
Space:  Arts Centre Rotermann's Salt Storage, Ahtri 2, Tallinn
W-F 12.00-20.00; Sat.-Sun. 11.00-18.00;
various spaces in Tallinn city.

The main exercise for Interstanding 4: end repeat is to examine the loop.
The uptake of digital technology is pervasive across the many disciplines
of both Arts and Sciences. With uniformity in the hardware, operating
systems and software adopted, a common ground has emerged. This convergence
presents an ideal, although possibly temporary, opportunity for varied
practitioners to collaborate between disciplines. Behind this, an impetus
to innovate is motivating the need to exploit this potential to further
benefit the disciplines in and of themselves.
The over exploitation of visual sense (the screen) in digital art demands
also an investigation into interfaces using other senses characteristic to
humans. Artists are invited to exploit the 'invisible' computer and produce
work which uses communication innovative ways.
End repeat aims to reveal the boundary between the current status of
digital arts and the potential that awaits. The programme of events has
been selected to reveal the conditions necessary for terminating the loop
and progressing into new territories.

"Media in Times of Crisis"
Moderated by Timothy Druckrey

The signs are everywhere that this is a time of crisis:  the crisis 
of art, of the economy, of information, of identity, of 
globalization, of the spirit, of modernity, of post-modernity, of 
cyber-modernity, of terrorism, the list goes on. The study of the use 
of media in times of crisis (both historical and contemporary) is an 
essential component of any comprehensive understanding of the link 
between reliable information and credible, meaningful communication 
in electronic culture.  For those of us in the field of media 
studies, this presents a deep crisis of the media itself. It 
signifies a troubling realignment in the accumulation and 
distribution of information in an environment in which a "fatal 
attraction for instantaneity" is linked with conceptualizing 
momentous cultural change.

This is particularly true as the siege of Washington and New York are 
reverberating wildly with both substantive information and wild 
speculation. French writer Paul Virilio reminded us during the Gulf 
War, that "images have become munitions." The opposite has also 
become true, that munitions have become images.  This forum will be 
focused on developing an open dialogue that looks directly at recent 
events and situate them critically in the history of media.

Panelists:

Timothy Druckrey, Moderator - Media theorist, curator, and faculty 
member of the Maryland Institute College of Art; Druckrey co-edited 
Culture on the Brink: Ideologies of Technology and edited Iterations: 
The New Image, Electronic Culture: Technology and Visual 
Representation, Ars Electronica: Facing the Future, and 
Net_Condition: Art and Global Media.
Steve Kovats - Editor of Media Revolution. Electronic Media in the 
Transformation Process of Eastern and Central Europe and a teacher 
and initiator of international projects in the fields of architecture 
and electronic arts.
Martha Rosler - Video artist,  photographer, and author in media 
issues from the Visual Arts Department at Rutgers University; her 
work has been exhibited in "Documenta 7," and in several Whitney 
biennials.

New Media Forum is a series of panel discussions presented by the 
Center for New Media of the Maryland Institute College of Art. The 
series is moderated by MICA faculty to include guest artists, 
engineers, designers, and scholars from the Baltimore area and 
beyond. The Forum focuses on critical perspectives that attempt to 
make sense of the changing cultural phenomena resulting from the 
emergence of new technologies.

Upcoming panels:

Will Larson, February 19, 2002
"Situated Realities And the New Techno-realism"
An examination of the re-formation of the photograph and its 
representational implications within the context of this new computed 
realism.

Ellen Lupton, April, 2002
"Skin: Engineering the Body, Art/Design/Media"
An exploration of how contemporary artists have responded to the 
radical, sometimes alarming, transformation of nature by using tools 
and ideas from medicine, biology, design, and digital media.

Subject: How to be an Obstacle?: ICA Nov 10-11


November 10th/11th
10am to 5pm
How to be an Obstacle?	£9/£8/£7 individual days; £13/£12/£11 whole weekend
Direct action, street politics and antiglobalisation
A major weekend conference exploring the limits and opportunities offered by
direct action.  While ballot box politics is reported to be in decline, at
least in the West, the politics of popular protest is taking off: from
colourful spectacles to direct, and sometimes violent, confrontation with a
variety of political targets.  

The conference will focus on new social movements (including the
antiglobalisation movement), actions on the internet, and individual
actions, as well as looking at the ambivalent response of the traditional
'left' to these emerging forms of political activity.  We will also be
asking whether there are acceptable and unacceptable expressions of direct
action and what might be the future of the movement in the light of the
events of September 11th.  Running alongside the conference there will be
film screenings, a workshop, and an exhibition of photographs. 

Speakers will include Antonio Negri (specially commissioned video), Ricardo
Dominguez, from the Electronic Disturbance Theatre; George McKay, author of
DIY Culture; Bruce Kent, former vice-president of CND; Paul O'Connor,
founder of Undercurrents; Hilary Wainwright, editor of Red Pepper; Stan
Vincent; Head of Actions, Greenpeace; Sam Wild, Indymedia; John Jordan,
artist and antiglobalisation activist; and Gibby Zobel, founder of Schnews
and news editor, The Big Issue.

How to be an Obstacle: direct action, street politics and antiglobalisation

ICA LONDON

November 10th and 11th 2001


Saturday November 10th

10.30am - 11.30am (theatre)

Opening session: What is a political action?
Speakers include: Charles Secrett, UK Director, Friends of the Earth;
Leonardo Vilchis, from Ultrared, a Los Angeles-based audio activist group
producing street actions, radio broadcasts, performances, recordings and
installations; Sam Wild, a DIY media activist involved with Indymedia, an
internet-based media collective; and Kath Ainger activist and co-editor of

journal, Social Movement Studies and author of Cyberpower: The Culture and
Politics of Cyberspace.


11.45am - 1pm

 A Challenge to the Protest Movement (Nash Room)
How do we stop a protest message being lost in violent confrontation? Can
protest embrace disruptive behaviour, or should it always be
non-confrontational? Is there a place for alternative summits when the
coverage will be of violence in the streets - or do they just assuage the
minds of the NGO's taking part? This session is hosted by the New Economics
Foundation, whose code of protest can be found at www.neweconomics.org .
Speakers include: Liana Cisneros, from Jubilee Plus; Ed Mayo, executive
director, NEF; and Lucy Pearce (People and Planet). In the chair is Andrew
Simms, director of global economy programme, NEF.

LUNCH

2pm - 3:15pm
The Internet: An Activist's Playground (Nash Room)
The internet has become an essential tool in the kit of the modern activist.
>From aggressive hacker techniques to inclusive global networking
activities - but how well is it being used, and to what effect? While
undoubtedly widening the reach of a political action, does the internet take
away from the passion and impact of face-to-face interaction? Speakers
include: Stefan Magdalinski, creator of upmystreet.com and faxyourmp.com;
Paul Mobbs, from the electrohippiess; and James Wilsdon, head of strategy at
Demos, currently working on a report on hactivism for Forum for the Future.
In the chair is Paul Taylor, author of Hackers: Crime in the Digital
Sublime..

 What's Wrong with a Travelling Anarchist Circus? George McKay in
Conversation (Brandon Room)
George McKay in conversation with Tim Jordan. They will be speaking about
the resurgence of anarchist ideas in DIY culture; the importance of culture
in recent social movements; and the historical view of protest. George McKay
is author of Senseless Acts of Beauty, an exploration of cultures of
resistance since the 1960's and DIY Culture, which maps the radical culture
and direct action politics of contemporary society.


3.30pm - 5pm (theatre)
Antonio Negri (commissioned video)
Radical philosopher, political activist, now an independent researcher and
writer and an inmate at Rebibbia Prison, Rome (for offences supposedly
committed in the 1970's), Antonio Negri's most recent book, written with
Michael Hardt, is Empire, the new bible of the anti-globalisation movement.
In this video, he is in conversation with John Foot, lecturer in Italian
History in the Department of Italian, UCL and author of Milan since the
Miracle. City, Culture, Identity. Foot will introduce the video and take
questions.

6pm onwards (Nash)
 A selection of screenings by independent film makers Undercurrents and
Indymedia: from hunt saboteurs to antiglobalisation demonstrations.

Sunday November 11th

10.30am - 11.30am

 Electronic Civil Disobedience: the computers byte back (theatre)
Depending on who you speak to, they're cyberterrorists or on-line Ghandis.
Ricardo Dominguez, spokesperson for the New York based Electronic
Disturbance Theatre, discusses with Paul A. Taylor, author of "Hackers"
whether electronic civil disobedience is a meaningful form of protest or
just more E-hype. The Electronic Disturbance Theatre have carried out
numerous successful acts of "electronic civil disobedience" using such
innovative on-line tools as Floodnet.

11.45am - 1pm

 Have we Been Here Before? (Nash Room)
Are recent examples of 'direct action', from the fuel protestors to
anti-globalisation protests, a radical endorsement of the power of
collective action? How do some of the more creative actions of the last 10
years differ from previous attempts to blast apart political apathy? Does
the immediate playfulness of much current political protest mask a poverty
of ideas about how to bring about significant social change? Speakers
include: Peter Tatchell, who has moved from conventional party politics to
'single issue' campaigns and actions; John Lloyd, associate editor of The
New Statesman; Paul Hilder from openDemocracy, a global network for debate
and invention; and Emma Bircham, editor of Anticapitalism: A Guide to the
Movement. In the chair is Bruce Kent¸ formerly vice-president of CND.

Workshop and film screening (Brandon Room)
Led by Sam Wild, from Indymedia. A look at the changes which have provided
the opportunity for people to create their own media and address politics
and protest in new ways. Using the Indymedia film about the protests in
Genoa, Sam will explain how over 100 people working on video projects in
Genoa went about collating and editing so much footage in such a short time,
and show how its done: final editing, continuity, distribution, recouping
costs, marketing and original ways to use the video.


LUNCH


2pm - 3.30pm
Zapatismo and the Carnival: direct action in the 21st century (Nash Room)
The years 2000 and 2001 saw changes in direct action politics. From the
discipline of zapatismo to the demonstration as carnival and temporary
autonomous zone, social movement politics has intensified. Do tactics such
as the paddin gup of the tute bianchi or white overalls movement, or the
violence of the police in Genoa, signify changes in the antiglobalisation
movement and in the understanding of direct action? Where does the politics
of direct action go now? Speakers include: John Jordan, artist,
anti-capitalist activist and co-editor of forthcoming We are everywhere: the
irresistible rise of global anti-capitalism, Eva Gilmore, an Italian civil
disobedience activist; and Tim Jordan, editor of Social Movement Studies and
author of the forthcoming Activism!: direct action, hacktivism and future of
society. In the chair is Adam Lent, author of British Social Movements since
1945: sex, colour, race and power.

"Have I Got Truths For You": the Ambivalent Status of News in the reporting
of direct actions and counter-culture spectacles (Brandon Room)
Media reporting is an intrinsic part of any action, protest or spectacle.
But the media is rapidly polarising between a mass audience mainstream which
is 'objective' and impassive and a proliferation of community led
alternatives who confess to being 'subjective' and involved. While all the
mainstream reporters are banging on the doors of the alternative news
networks for better sources, will they ever get the 'real' story as long as
they remain disinterested? Without attempting neutrality and autonomy, will
the 'new media' only ever preach to the converted? Can the two camps be
bridged to bring about meaningful news that leads to change - and makes
readers/viewers contemplate getting involved? Or is that simply not the job
of a reporter? Speakers include; Lucie Morris, reporter (undercover in
Genoa) The Daily Mail; Gibby Zobel, founder of Schnews and news editor The
Big Issue; Paul O'Connor, founder of Undercurrents; and Darius Bazargan,
producer BBC news. In the chair: Guardian environment editor, John Vidal

4pm
 Where do we go from here? (theatre)
In a climate of extremism, but with the wealth of options discussed
throughout the weekend, how can direct action be harnessed to bring about
change? Is it possible to remain radical while engaging constructively with
business, politics and the media? Is tempered radicalism the way forward?
How can you widen engagement without diluting the message? Speakers include
Jem Bendell, activist and consultant on Corporate Social Responsibility;
Stan Vincent, Head of Actions, Greenpeace; representative from the corporate
world tbc; and Noah Tucker, activist, also closely involved in the union
movement and in community campaigns. In the chair is Hilary Wainwright,
editor of Red Pepper

scuzzi for the cross post but thought you all might be interested in this 
site supporting the work of the Boat People Tactical Media Group (in 
collaboration with Stealth Video Ninja and crew) - formed recently at the 
dLux media Arts TILT conference worskhops.


We put together an action that culminated in us projecting a slide onto 
the Opera House on the Friday night at the end of the conference. This 
worked extremely well and we projected onto the church and buildings next 
to the TILT Cinema Concrete closing party the following night. (pictures

We need help in promoting the call to action for Australians to take up 
the campaign and continue it throughout the country so feel free to 
forward the link on.

Subject: Privacy Lecture Series - EXTRA SESSION!!!



[Hi,

David Banisar will be in Toronto this week and we have asked him to speak 
at the Privacy Lecture Series. David has agreed to do so on WEDNESDAY, Oct 
31st at 4pm-5,30pm.

David Banisar is the deputy director of Privacy International, a human

transmediale salon: Wiener Elektroniker

Montag, 5. November 2001, 20 Uhr
Podewil, Klosterstr.68-70, Berlin-Mitte
Eintritt: DM 10 / DM 8

Der transmediale salon im Podewil praesentiert am Montag, den 5.11. um 20 
Uhr den Wiener Kuenstler und Kurator Norbert Pfaffenbichler mit einem 
Vortrag zu neuen Tendenzen in der oesterreichischen audiovisuellen Kunst - 
Wiener Elektroniker. Norbert Pfaffenbichler ist Mitglied der Wiener
Kuenstlerkollektive vidok und monoscope, hat mehrmals bei der Kuratierung
der oesterreichischen Diagonale mitgewirkt und ist fuer den visuellen Part
bei der Band Sofa Surfers verantwortlich.

Parallel zur vielbeachteten Wiener elektronischen Musikszene entwickelte 
sich in den letzten Jahren auch im visuellen Bereich eine eigenstaendige 
Kultur. In diesem Experimentierfeld entstanden an der Schnittstelle von 
Akustischem und Visuellem unzaehlige Videos, Webpages, CD-Roms und 
audiovisuelle Liveacts. Bei den  vorgestellten Arbeiten wird das 
Verhaeltnis im Zusammenspiel von Ton und Bild insofern neu ausgelotet, als 
dass es hier nicht mehr unbedingt den gewohnten, narrativen Strukturen des 
Musikclips folgt. Rhythmische Muster werden zerlegt, im Mittelpunkt steht 
die Suche nach einer anderen visuelle Sprache und Ausdrucksform, einem 
neuen Umgang mit Bildern.
Der Vortrag wird eine kurze Chronologie skizzieren und exemplarisch einige 
Projekte vorstellen. (Austrian Abstracts, sixpack, mego, xtv, vidok, re-p, 
etc.)


English version:

transmediale salon: Wiener Elektroniker

Monday 5th November 2001, 8.00 pm

transmediale salon presents Vienna based artist and curator Norbert 
Pfaffenbichler. In a lecture titled Wiener Elektroniker he will give a 
presentation on new developments in contemporary austrian audiovisual arts.
Mr. Pfaffenbichler is an active member of vienna artists groups vidok and 
monoscope. He also participated in the curation of Austrian film-festival 
diagonale and is responsible for the visual design part of the band sofa 
surfers.

In addition to the highly acknowledged Vienna electronic music scene there 
has been a constant development towards an independent visual electronic 
arts scene. An astonishing number of videos, web sites, CDroms and 
audiovisual live acts has been created in this experimental space where 
audio and visual arts overlap. The difference between traditional 
audiovisual artworks with narrative, linear structures (such as video 
clips) and new progressive art forms will be clearly visible in the works 
presented at transmediale salon. In search of new forms of visual 
expression and communication artists start dissolving traditional rhythmic 
patterns and structures.

The lecture will give a chronological overview on recent developments as 
well as a more detailed presentation of some particular projects. (Austrian

Abstracts, sixpack, mego, xtv, vidok, re-p, etc.)

'end repeat'
Interstanding 4

'end repeat' consists from conference and exhibition, the last will also

occupy various types of spaces outside the gallery.

Time:           1th - 18th of November 2001
Space:  Arts Centre Rotermann's Salt Storage, Ahtri 2, Tallinn
Wen.- Fri.12.00 - 20.00; Sat.- Sun. 11.00 - 18.00;
Tallinn city space, http://www.interstanding.ee.

'end repeat' aims to reveal the boundary between the current status of
digital arts and the potential that awaits. The programme of events has
been selected to reveal the conditions necessary for terminating the loop
and progressing into new territories.

'end repeat's' main objective is to examine the loop. The uptake of
digital technology is pervasive across the many disciplines of both Arts
and Sciences. With uniformity in the hardware, operating systems and
software adopted, a common ground has emerged. This convergence presents
an ideal, although possibly temporary, opportunity for varied
practitioners to collaborate between disciplines. Behind this, an impetus
to innovate is motivating the need to exploit this potential to further
benefit the disciplines in and of themselves.

'end repeat' emphasises the state of over exploitation of visual sense
(the screen) in digital arts.

'end repeat' is an invitation to investigate interfaces other then the
visual. Artists are invited to exploit the 'invisible' computer and
produce work which uses communication innovative ways.

'end repeat' relocates from the Estonian Academy of Art's E-Media Centre
to Arts Centre Rotermann's Salt Storage transforming into an open
medialab: a place for workshops, performances, presentations, webcasts and
other activities.
