zwei Zitate:

"Wir haben uns zusammengefunden, eine Art Ästhetik des Scheiterns
auszuprobieren, das heißt eine Ästhetik des Nichtkönnens, des Möchtens,
des Wollens. Und dies ist eine sehr schmerzhafte Ästhetik, es ist eine
Ästhetik der Peinlichkeiten, der Blamage, des Verzichts. Da es aber
eigentlich darum geht zu ergreifen, emotional auf einen Hörer
einzuwirken, gibt es natürlich dieses Blamiertsein und die Peinlichkeit
als eine Art Ergriffenheit und als ein Spiel damitÖ"

(Oswald Wiener, aus einem Vortrag über selten gehörte musik, Köln 1998)

"es ist sehr schwierig, etwas zu machen, wenn der verstand sehr beweglich
ist. es braucht dann keiner bewegung der gegenstände. sieh dass die
ereignisse deine einsicht nicht festlegen, dass die eine interpretation
nicht erzwungen werden kann; dass der verstand grösser als sein
gegenstand ist (etwa insofern irrtum möglich ist) und sieh dass nur der
gelähmte verstand der wirklichkeit bedarf und der verschiebungen in ihr.
er sieht die mechanismen nicht, die vom gegenstand zu ihm führen und
kann sie nicht ändern; jede veränderung des gegenstandes führt über
starre hebel zu einer veränderung seiner auffassung, und jede
veränderung einer vorstellung projiziert er auf den gegenstand.
neue formen gehören zu einer strategie, mitzuteilen dass man die alten
formen anders verstanden hat. aber mir geht es nicht um kommunikation,
sondern um die aufweichung meiner vorstellungen. SELTEN GEHÖRTE MUSIK
ist auf dem weg zu grösserer beweglichkeit des verstandes, nicht der
ereignisse, und beachtet musikalische formen nicht (musikalische formen:
die als eigenschaften des verstandenen wirken aber unbedachte und
aufzulösende mechanismen des verstehens sind)...
SELTEN GEHÖRTE MUSIK aus der unfähigkeit: noch nicht vergessen haben,
wie man hören muss (und zu den regeln zurückstreben), aber schon
unfähig, den kanon anzuwenden; noch nicht im stande, jederzeit das vom
andern gemeinte aus dem was man von ihm wahrnimmt zu streichen, aber
doch bereits das selbst getane in seiner beliebigen interpretierbarkeit
sehen und die modulation der wenigen aspekte, die mir überhaupt
auffallen, nicht zur manipulation deines verständnisses sondern gegen
die enge meines eigenen meinens einsetzen..."

(OSWALD WIENER, über das Berliner Konzert selten gehörte musik 1974)

Subject: Debate: net.art and art criticism

A  N  N  O  U  N  C  E  M  E  N  T


Debate:

net.art and art criticism

Friday January 25, 2002

De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics, Amsterdam

Grote Zaal

Start: 20.00 hrs.


Ever since documenta X 1997 in Kassel, internet art has been placed on the
map of the contemporary art world. Artists such as the duo jodi.org or
Marko Peljhan were suddenly launched into the international art world.
Meanwhile, however, artists working primarily with the internet have
remained rather exotic creatures in the art zoo.
Why? Are these artists misunderstood? Does net.art also demand a new set of
criteria? What is the relevant context in which these works should be
discussed and analysed; that of contemporary visual arts, or rather the
context of the internet itself and the turbulent developments of the new
communication and information technologies?

It begs the question how art criticism should deal with these phenomena. Is
internet art or "net.art" simply another art form as there are many others,
a genre, which then can be a normal part of regular art criticism? Or  do
these works in the admittedly special context of the internet require their
own criteria and their own discourse, in order that they can be
appropriately understood and valued?

Participants in the debate are; Frederic Madre (F); Tilman Baumgaertel (D),
writer, critic, author of "net.art Materialien zur Netzkunst"; Sarah Cook
(UK), Curator, writer and researcher, University of Sunderland; Graham
Harwood (UK), media-artist (ex-Mongrel) and currently artist in residence
at De Waag Society for Old and New Media; jodi (B&NL) artist duo, creators
of the famous jodi.org net art web site, SOD a radical adaptation of the 3D
game Wolfenstein and the "Wrong Browser" project.

5 - 10 February 2002

go public!


Conference & Panels


Thursday, 7.2., 16.00
Conference 1: Public Space Invaders

Public space is not a control-free gathering place for enlightened
citizens; rather it is a technically and highly media equipped system
combining visibility, vigilance and control. Publicity today is rather
something which takes place in the pseudo- private spaces of the television
than in urban spaces. In digital space, the border between private and
public data, between communication and information is disappearing. And
yet, we are not only the slaves of mobile communications services, of
biometric systems and public displays. Resourceful artists and media
activists are appropriating the necessary technologies, and creating
creative and critical media for digital publicity.
With:
Konrad Becker (at), director of Public Netbase Vienna, on the research and
information project World-Information.Org; Matthew Fuller (uk), media
theorist from London, on tactical media and 'TextFM', a project developed
together with G. Harwood which combines private SMS with radio; Tim
Pritlove (de) of Berlin's Chaos Computer Club on the spectacular
Blinkenlights installation at the Haus des Lehrers on Alexanderplatz; Andy
Bichlbaum of TheYesMen (int), a group of activists who say an irritatingly
loud yes! to globalisation. Additionally we show a video by the
Surveillance Camera Players (us), who play theatre in front of surveillance
cameras, and a commercial break by ubermorgen.com.


Thursday, 7.2., 20.30
Conference 2: Global Public

Global Public: The New World Order of Broadcasting

Globalisation is not merely an economic and political phenomenon, it is
also taking place to a substantial degree in the media, which increasingly
enables a connected audience worldwide to take part live in global events.
The conditions for global media reportage have changed fundamentally over
the past years. The co-existence of satellite, internet, and terrestrial
broadcasting channels has led to the disappearance of the boundaries
between global concerns such as CNN, regional stations such as the Arabic
Al Jazeera, or the media activist network Indymedia. Representatives of
such networks discuss the 'new world order' of broadcasting. (Participants
to be confirmed)


Friday, 8.2., 16.00
Conference 3: Images in Process

Images in Process

Media images in the digital era are no longer static representations of
reality; rather they are temporary constructions based on software and
codes. Images are mixed, sampled, and interpreted technically. The
significance of these images is dependent on the technical and cultural
conditions under which they can be received, reproduced, and manipulated.
The truth and the authenticity of images, which with photography had still
been tied to the immediacy of the moment, can, in the digital flood of
images, only be depicted as a tendency, as a pattern, as a possibility,
which can be eradicated again at any moment by a more recent overwriting.
Those who wish to report and publicise events have to learn to move with
the image process. History is an interactive account of events; every image
within it is a passing approximation.
With:
Edmond Couchot (fr), Prof. emeritus at University of Paris 8, on generative
image processes and the 'second interactivity'; Michael Punt (uk) of
University of Wales College Newport, on the aesthetics of the 'post-digital
analogue'; Peter Lynch (ca), film maker, on digital film production and the
totally media-driven perception of 'Cyberman' Steve Mann.
Moderation: Thomas Y. Levin (us) Professor in Film Studies at Princeton
University
 

Friday, 8.2., 20.30
Conference 4: Software Speculations

Software Speculations

The growing social significance of computer software is indisputable.
Countless processes within the Information Society are being shaped by
software, and from Apple Macintosh, to Napster, free software and 'open
source', it is clear that software is not a value-free instrument, but
represents in each case a wilful cultural artefact. Artists and cultural
scientists are therefore increasingly reflecting upon the political,
ideological, ethical and aesthetic dimensions of software and software
design. The transmediale competition for 'software art' pays tribute to
this development.
At the beginning of the programme, the projects nominated for the
transmediale 'software award' will be presented by the artists:
Daniel Hahn/Dietmar Schifferbauer (de), Joan Leandre (es), Local Area
Network (ch), Alex McLean (uk)
With:
Manfred Fassler (de), cultural and media anthropologist at the University
of Frankfurt, about the constitution of social spaces through software;
Matthew Fuller (uk), media theorist, about speculative software and the
research project 'Software=Culture'; Margarete Jahrmann (at), artist and
media theorist who teaches at art academies in Linz, Wien and Zuerich,
about software as a generative art-machine.
Moderation: Florian Cramer (de), lecturer in Comparative Literature, FU Berlin


Wednesday, 6.2., 20.30
Panel: Concepts of Interactive Art

Concepts of Interactive Art

The artists in the exhibition present their different concepts and areas of
expertise: the works shown are based on artificial intelligence,
biofeedback, voice recognition or deliberate, physical navigation. Under
discussion are the artistic chances and risks of interactive projects, as
well as the rules under which interface design functions. Particular
attention has been paid to the unusual conditions and demands placed on the
visitor's reception of the work, in order to develop a clearer definition
of the term "interaction".
Presentations by: Peter Frucht (hu/de), robotlab (de), Jonah Brucker-Cohen
(us) Panel: Luc Courchesne (ca), Seiko Mikami (jp) Masaki Fujihata (jp),
Kenneth Rinaldo (us)


Thursday, 7.2., 14.00
Panel: SMS Encounters
(in German)

"SMS Encounters: The intensification of the public sphere?"

SMS-fever - not only means E-speed lyrics between two people. Novels and
sports news are also obtainable with an SMS subscription. The Afghanistan
war has also meant that troops are dealt with via SMS. Culture and media
producers are experimenting with the private medium in order to make use of
the mobile telephone as enter key for new forms of public broadcasts. For
some time now, a semipublic communications network is taking on vague
contours. TV and radio are also being short-circuited through the private
remote control. Do infringements between the private and the public sphere
take place when a private mobile medium is shortcircuited with immobile
public media? The panel SMS encounters intends to shed light on the
production environment of (intermedial) SMS-applications, and clarify their
definition of the public.
With:
Olaf Arndt, Kuenstler, www.bbm-ww.de; Alexandra Bohn, Autorin, u.a.
www.spex.de; Klaas Glenewinkel, Medienproduzent, www.okb.de; Christoph
Maire, CEO, www.gate5.de; Nils Roeller, Medientheoretiker, www.khm.de;

Saturday, 9.2., 12.00
Panel: Young Russian Media Art

Young Russian Media Art

In spite of all the changes and new orientations in Russia's intellectual
landscape they do not forget their post-soviet "rituals of understanding"
and are developing ways of describing new spiritual processes with euphoric
composure and ironic self-exaggeration. Young media artists from Moscow and
St.Petersburg present their work.
With:
Eldar Karhalev, developed the Wap-Portal WAPICONA; Sergei Teterin,
describes a heavenly Nirvana in 'All Media Artists Go To Heaven', where
media artists enter after their death, to work with the internet, pagers,
and mobile phones; Ivan Khimin, studied art history and media art at Pro
Arte Institute in St. Petersburg; Anna Kolossava, plays with virtual and
physical spaces; Yuri Popov, works with the artistic possibilities of the
Flash format.
Moderation: Alexei Shulgin


Samstag/Saturday, 9.2., 12.00
Panel: Digital Cultural Heritage
(in German)

Digital Cultural Heritage

Art and culture live by their confrontation with tradition. The
digitalisation of large areas of our cultural production means that our
society faces the challenge of preserving this most recent inheritance for
us, and for posterity. What will happen when in a few decades the necessary
combinations of hardware, operating systems and software no longer
function? The answers to these questions are not only of great importance
to art historians, but are of interest to the whole of society. From the
annual balance sheet to the computer game; is there any information left
that is non-digital in nature - and are we facing the great post-digital
age of forgetting?
With:
Konrad Becker, Public Netbase Wien, www.world-information.org
Rudolf Frieling, ZKM Karlsruhe, www.zkm.de
Oliver Grau, Humboldt Universitaet Berlin,
www.arthist.hu-berlin.de/arthistd/mitarbli/og/og.html

Andreas Lange, DiGA - The Digital Game Archive Berlin,

Sunday, 10.2., 14.00
Panel: Paper.Hype

Paper.Hype

Under the title 'Paper Hype' the transmediale.02 is for the first time
organising a meeting of editors of a number of different European magazines
dealing with digital culture. Representatives from England, France,
Austria, Germany and Italy will introduce their print media and will
discuss the conditions for publishing in the internet era. What does it
mean to produce a magazine, a paper publication about digital culture in an
era of apparently total digitalisation? Mute calls it: Proud to be Flesh!
With:
Jan Rigos Hillmann, DE:BUG, Berlin, zeitung fuer elektronische
lebensaspekte, www.de-bug.de
Christian Hoeller, springerin - Hefte fuer Gegenwartskunst, www.springerin.at
Fran Ilich, undo, Mexiko, www.cmca.gob.mx/undo

Pauline van Mourik Broekman, MUTE, London, www.metamute.com



Sunday, 10.2., 12.00
Panel: Public Vote/Public Bet > K 1

Stuart Rosenberg: Public Vote/Public Bet

The project Public Vote/Public Bet was developed by Stuart Rosenberg
specially for transmediale. 02. Instead of leaving the decision about the
award winners to the expert jury, festival visitors can vote on the best
projects and choose their own Public Vote Award in the three award
categories. A second 'go public!' is added to this first one: in the
'Public Bet' betting booth the festival visitors can place bets on the
winners of the Public Vote Award. If you guess correctly, you win the
jackpot! On the day after the prize ceremony, Rosenberg presents the
project and discusses the implications of different types of open, public
and democratic decision making processes.

Subject: Privacy Lecture Series - Pamela Samuelson, Jan. 17, 2002



[The Privacy Lecture Series re-starts this coming week with a talk by 
Pamela Samuelson, one of the most renowed cyber-rights advocate in the U.S. 
Pamela's work in the sphere of copyright and intellectual property (IP), 
defending basic individual rights against advances by powerful 
corporations, has made her internationally aclaimed. This lecture will 
bring together the issues of privacy and intellectual property.

Check the date and time below. The location is the same as last term. Best. 
Ana]


PRIVACY LECTURE SERIES
<http://privacy.openflows.org>

PAMELA SAMUELSON
PRIVACY DIMENSIONS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Thursday, January 17, 2002
6:45-8:00PM

140 St. George, Room 728
Faculty of Information Studies (building adjacent to Robarts Library)
University of Toronto

The lectures are free of charge and you do NOT have to register.

Abstract

As the content industries expand the scope of intellectual property (IP) 
and the technological means for enforcement, important other social values 
are negatively affected such as freedom of speech, freedom of research and 
privacy. In this talk Pam Samuelson, will focus on the right to privacy and 
how it is affected by the emerging new copyright regime, for instance, how 
do we balance individuals' right control their private sphere with 
corporate rights to control their property and combat piracy? Are new 
systems, which force users to license content and to establish a permanent 
relation with the right holders, for example in Windows XP, an intrusion 
into the user's private sphere? Can the issue of privacy be used to fight 
the seemingly limitless expansion of rights of IP holders?

with a joint appointment in the School of Information Management and 
Systems and the School of Law. She is also Director of the Berkeley Center

IMPORTANT DATES:
Deadline: January 31, 2002
Festival: 17-19 May 2002, Moscow.

The following types of work can be referred to as artistic software:

1. Instructions (read_me) for modifying standard, commonly used software, as well as patches and anything that creates an artistic impact on software in a way not planned by the application's producers.
2. Deconstruction of existing software products, including computer games.
3. Programs written from scratch with a purpose different than the usual "rational" software purposes, i.e. the rejection of the idea of a program as a purely pragmatic tool. 

Since the curators of the festival do not consider it necessary for the framework of the artistic software categories to be too narrow, contact the curators if you are not sure if your work is suitable for read_me 1.2!
If you would like to take a look at sample artistic software works, visit our links page.
