Subject: art is dead / l'art est mort ? +  by Pablo Ruiz Pikachu = palabra palabra parameter

art is dead / l'art est mort ?

depuis quelques années, certains théoriciens affirment que, avec l'avènement
de l'internet et la reproduction sauvage (sampling, copy/past etc.),nous
assistons à la mort de l'art.
En partant du postulat que l'art est mort, par quoi le remplaceriez-vous ?

since some years, certain theorists assert that, with the advent of the
internet and the wild reproduction (sampling, copy / past etc.), we attend
the death of the art.
By stating on the postulate that art is dead, with (by) what you would
replace it ?

*one question more : can you send me a "representation" of the concept "art"
- - image, photo or...- making it simply, as you had to explain "art" to a
child with one only image

encore une question : pourriez-vous m'envoyer une représentation du concept
"art" - image, photo ou...- en faisant simple, comme si vous deviez
expliquer l'"art" en une seule image à un enfant

thanks in advance for your answer

(deadline 23 / 12)

best regards

bauhaus dessau: technical assistant wanted
(please forward this mail)

In the coming 2002 trimester at the postgraduate interdisciplinary design
course at the Bauhaus-Kolleg in Dessau we will experiment with practical
computer interface construction. To design and to support this course we
need help by an assistant (1 person).

The workshop will take place in the term between feb12th and may1th 2002.

This job will require occasional physical presence at the Bauhaus in Dessau
(approx. a total of 8 days) plus the monitoring and occasional advice on the
ongoing work from the distance.

The assistant will have to provide technical assistance and advise on topics

- - reconfiguring and tuning standard computer interface devices for
customized purposes
- - connecting computers, sensors, micro-controllers, output devices,...
- - writing and customizing software, drivers
- - finding the right hard- and software components and the places to get them
- - electro-mechanical issues
Prior advice will also be needed for the design of the general workshop
design: defining topics and research goals in regard to technology already
available at the Bauhaus, participants experience & skills and the focus of
the general research work done at the Bauhaus-Kolleg.

workshop language is english!

in short:
+ workshop in practical computer interface construction (PIC)
+ mapping space or man action into computer behavior
+ the PIC will be part of the bauhaus-dessau interdisciplinary post graduate
course. Most of the 12-20 participants come from a design, architecture or
art background.
+approximately 8 workshop days at Dessau + 4h/Week tele-support throughout
trimester duration (feb.12 thru may 12st 2002).

<<<   ISSUE  0  IS NOW ONLINE   >>>

Recent transformations in the production and
distribution of culture have resulted in a withering
of control. In this atmosphere, the self-organization
of spaces, culture and media and the invention of new
forms of production has become necessary for the art
of survival. Today, increasingly, we are witnessing
spaces that are not occupied but evacuated, groups
that exist on the borders of disappearance without
names, media that exist for-themselves, having become
liberated from profit and the audience, and forms of
production that are no longer subject to the
domination of exchange.

Subject: Culture Jam, The Film

contact email:

A film by Jill Sharpe. A Right To Jam Production Inc. Produced by Lynn Booth
and Jill Sharpe.

A new breed of revolutionary stands poised along our information highways
waging war on logos and symbols. They're "Culture Jammers" and their mission
is to artfully reclaim our mental environment and cause a bit of brand
damage to corporate mindshare. Director Jill Sharpe's subversively savvy
one-hour documentary film - culturejam - Hijacking Commercial Culture-
bursts our last bubble of illusion about free speech in public space and
gives us spanking brand-new hope at the same time. Scream at the TV, but
don't touch that dial! Yet. In the hour long film, Culture Jam: Hijacking
Commercial Culture, we follow three outlandish jammers; media tigress Carly
Stasko, Reverend Billy of the Church of Stop Shopping, and Jack Napier with
the Billboard Liberation Front. Armed with DIY anti-ad stickers, custom
neon, and stuffed mice on crosses, these jammers hijack, subvert and reclaim
corporate media space. Enter the intriguing worlds of midnight billboard
raids and the mid-afternoon hijacking of public space.

Ultimately Culture Jammers wage a war of "meaning". They use the tools of
the medium to re-wire the "message". Will Disney's Mickey represent a "world
of laughter" or will he become the anti-Christ representing "sweatshop
labour practices". The verdict of public perception lies in a battle between
billion dollar PR campaigns and guerrilla tactics of rebel activists. A
relatively young movement, contemporary Culture Jammers first appeared in
the early 80's in San Francisco. But court jesters of medieval Europe, and
movements like Dada, Surrealism, and the Situationist International of
Paris, as well as the recent range from punk to "post", all provide a
philosophical lineage for this new brand of rabble rousers. French
Situationist Guy Debord declared in the 1960's that we inhabit the "society
of the spectacle" - where leisure and real living had been replaced by
pre-packaged media simulated experiences. The moment has come for a new
message to take back the medium. Through their interventions culture jammers
make a spectacle of ad-culture.

Hard hitting, controversial, wacky and engaging, this film captures the
drama of jammers in action and asks: Is Culture Jamming civil disobedience?
Senseless vandalism? The only form of self-defense left?
