Subject: Let us prepare the Internet Fiesta 2003

Internet Fiesta, 5th Edition 
from March 17th to 23rd 2003
Expatriation today 

HTLM version :

Since the beginning of the Internet adventure, the web has continued to be the favoured link between expatriated communities. Through forums, chat rooms and specialised web sites, communities have formed according to their cultural affinities. Today the world wide web is the main communication stream between members of these communities. The Internet allows individuals living abroad to stay in touch with their culture, their language and to recreate a cultural space in which puts a specific emphasis on their identity.

The International Fiesta Committee, still operating from Paris, France, has decided that the fifth edition of the Internet Fiesta will be dedicated to all those who live abroad and wish to keep in touch with their roots and with each other. The Internet Fiesta remains open naturally to all projects and proposed initiatives. 

The International Fiesta Committee wishes to thank all the weavers of the Internet Fiesta 2002 and of former editions, for their remarkable achievements. The committee have studied the results of 2002 and wish to pin point certain weaknesses that the event presented and to suggest some directives in order to correct them and to make sure that the Internet Fiesta 2003 will be an even more successful event than in the past:

Therefore, the committee encourages all the contributors to get in contact with all possible expatriated web communities, every where, all around the world, and to inform them or to propose to them to become our partners on every possible project being prepared. Furthermore, it appears that the most efficient way to work being if you keep forwarding information throughout your network. To insure the success of our Fiesta, one can never be too insistent.

The committee encourages you to engage in formal relations, as soon as possible, with institutions and officials in your town, region or nation in order to obtain official supports, grants, representations or accreditations for you project, your local committee or the International Fiesta Committee.

The committee keenly advises you to get in contact equally with a maximum of local, regional or national media and to associate them to your initiatives in order to give to the internet Fiesta the largest possible public notoriety.

We also invite you to actively look for sponsors and partners, not only for your own projects but also for your local committee or for the International Committee. Remember that the partners gain increased visibility, adapted to their very needs and only good partnerships will allow the Fiesta to keep existing. Please intensify your effort especially in the direction of IT and NTIC sectors. Weavers who would have found a sponsor or a partner for their local committee or for the International Committee will see their project entitled for a commission rewarding their action.

The committee would like every one involved in the Internet Fiesta 2003 to contact every possible N.G.O. in order to make them participate in a way or an other in the Fiesta and to make them use their network for our mutual benefit.

Finely, it appears particularly important that every weavers get in contact with schools and universities to inform them and to encourage them to participate in your project or to prepare their own but also in order to provide the entire Fiesta network with translation resources in a maximum of languages. 
In order to complete the Internet Fiesta 2002 report, the committee would like to ask every one to be kind enough to send us everything you have seen or heard or read about us in the media. We will gather all of it and install an on-line library on the new official web site of the Internet Fiesta.

Last but by no means least, we would appreciate if you could send as soon as possible, your suggestions and short overview of the initiative you may be preparing. The new official web site of the Internet Fiesta 2003 will be operational very soon, meanwhile we are ready to receive your mail on

Thank you and best regards

For the International Fiesta Committee

Subject: Radiotopia - call for participation

Call for participation/contributions

on line - on air - on site

Ars Electronica 2002 / Ö1 Kunstradio

Be part of the Radiotopia acoustic network and contribute sound work as a file, CD, tape, score etc. Mix incoming sounds or playback streams at your radio station, club or Internet café! "Liberté, fraternité, egalité"-carrying on this simple, old principle, we will set up a utopian sound network from September 8-12 -- Radiotopia.

It's open air for your contributions.

Raise your voice, record it, and send the sound file. There are no commercial or ideological goals; this is an artistic project commissioned by the 2002 Ars Electronica Festival and co-produced by ORF Kunstradio, Vienna.

A documentary CD, the websites created over the course of the project, as well as your personal work and recordings will remain after the Radiotopia performance is over to document what has transpired.
Radio, the Internet, electricity, as well as music, literature, the fine arts etc. are communication tools meant to be used by the people. Let's do it!

All kinds of sounds are welcome; however, to help create the unique sound-image of Radiotopia-radio as a worldwide medium for communication/exchange/dialogue supporting and amplifying the often-unheard multiplicity of voices-we propose a strong language or vocal element in your contributions. This diverse and regional vocabulary might also include the "voices" of specific landscapes, cityscapes, musical instruments and ecosystems around the world.

Send your sounds/poems/scores etc. (without a restriction on running time) in a prerecorded form via snail mail (on cassettes, CDs, MDs), Internet (live streams, files, images), telephone, and fax, or submit your texts/poems/statements (in all languages) in written form to:

Retrofuturism 15


direct download:

Description. "The Photocopier as a Moral Dilemma." The Art Strike 
(1990-1993) continues to enjoy its long run as a potent topic for 
debate in this issue. Many in the Dialog section express distaste for 
the tiresome back and forth, but, running the series backward as we 
are, you, the new reader of this series, should expect and be 
prepared for more to come. Issue responds in part to the aftermath of 
the Persian Gulf War, among other issues. In this regard, the Bureau 
of Public Secrets offers up the essay The War and the Spectacle. 
Beyond that, a substantial portion of pagespace is given over to 
Netlinks: International Networking Year, a proposal by mailartists 
for a series of Decentralized Worldwide Networking Congresses to be 
held during the following calendar year. A variety of mailart 
luminaries weigh in with their opinions and thoughtful musings on the 
proposal. Other items include essays by Ben G Price ('The 
Epistemology of Eschatology'), Barney Rubble ('Confessions of a 
Posterist') and Eliza Blackweb ('A New York Experience'), among 
others. Not to mention the numerous reviews of cassettes and printed 
pieces, and contributed graphics that readers have come to expect.

Contributors include. Mark Rose, The Tape-beatles, Karen Eliot, 
Esteban Felix, Eliza Blackweb, Eleutheros Productions, Thomas Wiloch, 
Ben G Price, Musicmaster, Piotr Szyhalski, Harry Polkinhorn, 
Crackerjack Kid, Walter Alter, Stephen Perkins, ASCW-IA, H R Fricker, 
FaGaGaGa, John Held, Jr., Bureau of Public Secrets, Dadata, AR280, 
ASFi, Orworks, Vittore Baroni, Anton Viergever, Horizon Unlimited, 
Matthew Fuller, Ben Allen, Sensoria from Censorium, Ross Martin.

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as a 
repository for a complete collection of Photostatic Magazine, 
Retrofuturism, and Psrf, (as well as related titles) in electronic 
form. We are posting issues in PDF format, at more or less regular 
intervals, in reverse chronological order to form a mirror image in 
time of the original series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, 
is finally posted in several year's time, then this electronic 
archive will be complete.

Subject: loungelab is looking for you!

We'd like to invite you to make an entry to the backup.lounge|lab 2002
exhibition/laboratory project. 

While the backup.festival's issue is 'new media in film', .lounge|lab topic is to question traditional cinema dispositives.

This years exhibition will intensively deal with the transformation of the "open source"-theory/practice into "open art".
The .lounge|lab is no classic exhibition but a melange of an ever evolving laboratory and a recreating and communicative space.

Artists from all disciplines (i.e. filmmakers, video artists, sound
designers, architects, product designers, net and computer artists,
performers....) are invited to share a common "source code" and to act as an interdisciplinary collaborative artistic network. That means that the works will be created by multiple artists (we do not feature/present already finished works) and should symbolise their very different approaches towards the lab environment, media and their colleagues ideas and proposals. The integrity of the artists and their individual expression will both exist and diffuse when they access and trespass one another's ideas, material and media(tools). 

About the procedure/schedule of events: We will collect all entries until July 31st. After this we will "screen" all documented works and choose the artists to participate in the exhibition/lab project.
The artists will be chosen in a way to ensure a wide variety of different genres and hopes for the development of interaction/networking between the genres. 
Based on our conception of "open source -> open art) we then share all
information between those artists (room plans & videos of the exhibition/lab space, your former works' documentation, C.V.s = all understood as "open source code"). Beginning in the end of August the artists will be "linked" should start their collaborative work as a network (i.e. collective conception and preproduction of material needed) via the internet/mail/phone/whatever.
One week before the festival starts we will invite the artists from all over the world to join in the physical space at the lab in a workshop situation and assemble and install the works. During the exhibition the works should undergo a constant metamorphosis to again display the different approaches to the same "source code".

backup_festival will cover transportation (flight tickets, trains...) and accommodation in Weimar for the time of the workshop and the festival + pay workshop fees. Furthermore we are glad to be able to provide basic technology such as computers, projectors, sound systems, building material in a reasonable amount.

If you have any more questions please mail to us

From: "spike hibberd" <>

Hi Nettime members,

my name is Spike Hibberd and am currently studying Visualcommunication at Monash University in Australia. For my honours project I am exploring new forms of narrative = hypertext.

I am posting this message to find collaborators.

I have attached the brief -- which you'll probly need to print out.

The length of time you spend collaborating is up to.

To give an idea of the project: F[ri]ction has started with a core text which is compiled from various snipits of text from existing sources. Themes and topics vary from cyberculture to arts, cultural issues and politics. The collaborators are given a snipit of text
which they further explore, respond to, investigate, question and so forth.

These responses are used as the threads that will peel off the core text.

Instead of using the medium of web or cd-rom I am looking to create a non-linear hypertextural experience in the form of print.

If you are interested pls email me with 'yes' in the subject line asap.

Thanx spike
