Jody Zellen: "Crowds and Power"
october02 artport gate page 
http://artport.whitney.org

Jody Zellen's "Crowds and Power" uses mediated images to explore the 
relationship between space, memory, and territory. windows containing image 
fragments emphasize the displacement of individuals and the transformation of 
urban space where large gatherings, demonstrations, and struggles are 
represented. By juxtaposing charged images with theoretical and philosphical 
texts about the nature of crowds this website explores internal and external 
conflicts.

Mark NAPIER, painter-turned-digital-artist, is one of the early 
pioneering artists of the Internet to exploit the potential of a 
worldwide public space. Creating artwork exclusively for the Web, 
including such seminal works as "The Shredder,"
Digital Landfill," and "Feed," he has embraced an unprecedented 
artistic form that gives the viewer the freedom to recontextualize 
the medium, to shred its contents. Most recently his worked have been 
included in leading exhibitions of digital art, including: the 
Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial Exhibition, the Whitney's 
Bitstreams exhibition, and the San Francisco Museum of Art's 010101: 
Art in the Age of Technology.

created several computer art projects including the networked screen 
saver "Every Image." He is currently working on a web-based artwork 
called "Carnivore" - after the FBI software of the same name - that 
uses packet-sniffing technologies to create vivid depictions of raw 
data. "Carnivore" was given a Golden Nica award in Net Vision / Net 
Excellence at Ars Electronica 2002. He recently joined the faculty of 
New York University where he teaches digital media.

1994 Arts International Grant in India. Last year, her Net art 
project "Turns," was included in the Whitney Museum of American Art,

MAAP in Beijing
(MAAP -Multimedia Art Asia Pacific)

MAAP Festival will be held in Beijing
Official Opening 20 October
21 Oct- 3 November.
Our new web sites English/Chinese
www.maap.org.au

MAAP 2002 in Beijing will encompass a range of new media art exhibits,
Online projects, screenings and lectures addressing issues of audience
awareness and critical engagement with works by artists using technologies
and screen based media. MAAP will present the festival in 3 core venues in
Beijing. The Art Museum of China Millennium Monument, The Central Academy of
Fine Arts, The Loft New Media Art Space.

Since MAAP's inaugural festival in 1998 it has been based in Brisbane,
Australia and Online supported by a mix of government, corporate and
educational sectors. MAAP presents a rigorous annual festival program of new
media art and technology that has included work from China, Korea, Japan,
Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Philippines, New Zealand,
Vietnam and Australia.

Highlighting the China-Australia 30th Anniversary of relations, the MAAP
Festival is preparing to move to Beijing, leaping into the region to create
a unique cultural event and exchange.

Artists include Zhang Peili (China), Wang Gongxin (China), Zhu Jia (China),
YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES (Korea), Candy Factory (Japan),
Patricia Piccinini (Australia), Shilpa Gupta (India), Jeffrey Shaw
(Australia/Germany), Craig Walsh (Australia) and many more ...
Major new media installations and commissioned works developed for the 31
metre video wall driven by 56 programmable monitors at the Art Museum of
China Millenium Monument. The Central Academy of Fine Arts is hosting a one
month residency with Australian artist Justine Cooper who will prepare work
for this big screen. Artists projects are delivered through CDR, DVD,
digital video, screening programs and program events include lectures,
symposium, artists talks and interactive social events!

This year's MAAP Festival theme "MOIST", is an evocative adjective,
suggestive of conditions relating to life; growth; humidity; humanity. These
loaded references unleash imaginative poetic associations as wide as a fine
foggy mist, a first kiss or a sweaty palm. Art meets technology in a mix of
emotion and wires!

MAAP in Beijing has been collaboratively achieved with the generous support
and advice of our partners; The China International Exhibitions Agency, The
Gohua Group, The Art Museum of China Millennium Monument, The Central
Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, the Australian Embassy in Beijing, The Loft

From: "Kunsthaus Baselland" <schaschl {AT} kunsthausbaselland.ch>

Kunsthaus Baselland
.arcadia
Markus Huemer
13.10. - 17.11.2002

When Markus Huemer (*1968 Linz/A, lives and works in Cologne/G and
Berlin/G) gives his most recent work the title <.arcadia>, he is referring
to the illusory power of the art historical topos Arcadia. On the other
hand, however, he is calling for the redefinition of commonly used suffixes
such as <.com>, <.net> or country abbreviations like <.de> or <.ch> in
<.arcadia>. The exhibition title is a jibe at this artificial and idyllic
world of illusion but, at the same time, <.arcadia> also light-heartedly
marks a purely fictitious  in the virtual space of the Net, which is at
least as artificial and idyllic as the Arcadias in historical painting. In
his work, the Austrian artist tests the so-called <new media> for their
suitability for art against the experiences of classical media and their
most important discipline - painting. The artist, who has a degree in art
history and began his career with traditional painting, sees both the
painted worlds and those of the Net as places in an imaginary world that is
so «artificial that even death does not really exist in it».

Alongside the 6 new installations made specifically for this exhibition,
about 60 works from the past two years as well as a selection of older work
as reference will also be presented. This exhibition represents Markus
Huemer's far largest one-person show at about 2000m2 at an institution so
far. It will be connected with the international festival for new media
VIPER in Basel.

Opening: Saturday, 12th October, 2002 at 7 p.m.
Opening hours: Tue, Thur - Sun 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Wed 2 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Subject: Tom Sherman at Printed Matter, October 19th



Book Signing for Tom Sherman's

Before and After the I-Bomb: An Artist in the Information Environment

at Printed Matter, Inc., New York, NY

Saturday, October 19, 2002, 5 to 7 PM


Printed Matter is very pleased to announce a book signing for Tom
Sherman's book _Before and After the I-Bomb: An Artist in the Information
Environment_, to take place at Printed Matter, Inc., on Saturday,
October 19, 2002, from 5 to 7 PM.  Printed Matter, Inc. is located at
535 West 22nd Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.

"Tom Sherman integrates a deeply critical perspective on modern life with
an understanding and sense of hopefulness that denies cynicism [and]
defies ideological categorization. Read Sherman slowly and re-read. You
will find his to be one of the most original and powerful voices of a
generation."
             - David A. Ross

There was a time, not too long ago, when people wrote letters (and mailed
them), picked up the phone and spoke to people (not voice mail systems),
and considered whether to invest in expensive new "fax" technology as a
means of speeding up communication. Children went outside to play games
that didn't require a console and screen, schools bought books, and
computers filled entire floors of some offices. In less than twenty years,
our homes, schools, cars, workplaces, and leisure activities have been
transformed by the onslaught of technology.

Tom Sherman got wired early and has spent much of his career leading the
way through the aftershocks of the "I-Bomb" and its information explosion.
_Before and After the I-Bomb_ collects over fifty of Sherman's texts about
art, technology, and nature from the last three decades. His series of
personal reflections express both a love for and struggle with the new
technologies and the cultural changes they have spawned. Most importantly,
they provide an instrument for gauging the evolution of a human culture
inextricably bound to Earth's ecosystem, and a tool for negotiating the
future, even if [as Sherman writes] it is currently "obscured by a dense
cloud of scrambled technobabble."

Tom Sherman is a media artist, writer, and broadcaster. He knows the media
environment from several perspectives, having worked in mainstream radio
and television, but also having produced groundbreaking art with video
gear, industrial robots, surveillance systems, and telecommunications
networks. He founded the Media Arts Section of the Canada Council for the
Arts, co-founded Fuse magazine, and represented Canada at the Venice
Biennale. Sherman performs and records with Bernhard Loibner in the group
Nerve Theory. His work integrates video, music, and performance, and often
features improvised narratives. Tom Sherman also teaches media art
history, theory, and practice at Syracuse University.

_Before and After the I-Bomb: An Artist in the Information Environment_
is published by Banff Centre Press, 384 pages, paperback,
ISBN: 0-920159-94-X, and is priced at $20.50. _ Before and After the
I-Bomb_, and over 15,000 other artists' books are available from Printed
Matter's website:  www.printedmatter.org

Printed Matter is located at 535 West 22nd Street,
between 10th and 11th Avenue, in New York's Chelsea district.

For additional information, please contact David Platzker, Executive
Director, Printed Matter, Inc., at (212) 925-0325.

Johan Grimonprez präsentiert seine neue Website 'zapomatik'

Das „Zappen“ zwischen den Kanälen hat unsere (Fern)Sehgewohnheiten nachhaltig beeinflusst. Durch Werbeblöcke unterbrochen, nehmen wir das Gezeigte nur noch partiell und nicht mehr als Ganzheit wahr, und das hat soziale und ökonomische Veränderungen zur Folge. Anhand von historischem Material sowie einer digitalen Aufbereitung im Netz zeigt Grimonprez wie die Werbeindustrie durch die ‚Zapping’technologie Einfluss auf Medienproduktion und Konsumverhalten nimmt.

Johan Grimonprez (B) presents his new „zapomatik“ website and video lounge on the subject of „zapping“. With historic material as well as a digital work off the Internet, Grimonprez takes up the ad industry’s influence on media productions and consumer behavior. Channel-zapping has changed our (tele)visual habits: This project confronts the fact that commercial interruptions cause us to only partially perceive what we are watching, inducing social and economic change.

Chiapaneco Meeting, opposed to neoliberialism
Strengthen Resistance and looking for Alternatives
October 9-12, 2002 Casa de la Cultura, El Carmen
San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas

THE CALL
It has been two years since the 2nd meeting South-North (today Convergence
of Movements of the Towns of the Americas COMPA -) took place in October
2000 in San Felipe Ecatepec, municipality of San Cristo'bal de las Casas,
Chiapas, many organizations of importance have been participating in several
meetings and international forums on diverse topics. Some organizations
attended some, and others went to all. Between these spaces, there was the
Meeting of State Organizations in San Felipe Ecatepec. Then, in November of
the same year, the 2nd meeting for the Democracy and Life in San Cristobal
took place. In 2001 the regional meeting of COMPA took place in Oaxaca and
initiated others whose process continues until this year and will follow
until the following one, the meetings "For the Defense of Maize"; the three
forums against PPP (Tapachula, Xela, and Managua); the First Mesoamerica
Forum for the life 'Regional Front Against the Dams', in the Pete'n; the two
weeks "For the Biological diversity and Culture" in San Cristobal and Xela;
and the National Meeting for Peace in San Cristobal de las Casas. These are
not all the spaces and forums that have been carried out, but are many. In
these moments of interchange, important reflection, and information much has
been carried out, it has given the opportunity to us to connect the
processes towards Central America where bonds have been strengthened with
those organizations. Today, thanks to these events the subjects like genetic
engineering and pesticides, the Puebla-Panama Plan or the Free Trade
Agreement, as well as the dams, nourishing sovereignty, Free Trade Area of
the Americas (FTAA), amongst many others, they have incorporated these
social agendas generating or strengthen awareness, resistance, and specific
actions in the communities. However, we left to the side since 2000 the
common meeting space between the Chiapaneca Organizations. For that reason,
two years after the meeting in San Felipe Ecatepec and for making concrete a
common Plan of Action on concepts that affect all organizations and
communities; and because we think that a plural space is necessary, ample,
democratic, multi sectorial, where all women and men have, organization, to
globalize the alternatives, the resistance and the hopes in which another
world is possible,

The first Chiapaneco Meeting, opposed to neoliberialism
Strengthen Resistance and looking for Alternatives

With the following Objectives:
I) To work out a Plan of Action common in base to the following 11
concepts:

urban, ecume'nicas, magisterial, indigenous, and of solidarity). The

organization or the community, since the objective is to assume the
commitment to impel the Plan of Action that is from the meeting, operating
it, coordinating themselves and to evaluate it in the time in which the
participants of meeting determine it. For that reason, the participants will

From: "Gildner, Silvia" <sgildner {AT} bauhaus-dessau.de>

We are holding a conference on 25 October 2002 as the prelude and
introduction to the presentation of the 2nd "International Bauhaus Award",
which takes place on 26 October. These two events mark the climax of Bauhaus
Dessau Foundation's theme for this year, "TeleCity". The central topic of
discussion has been the way urban spaces are changing due to information and
communication technologies [ICT], and the "International Bauhaus Award" this
year is for projects that explore the interplay between human beings and
technology - human/ICT interfaces - or between space and technology, in an
urban context. The projects are intended to probe beyond futuristic hype and
apocalyptic phobias, and investigate the complex interconnections between
"real worlds" and "virtual worlds" and the distinctive effects they have on
urban space and urban public life. During the conference, the members of the
award jury will be presenting their own current approaches and papers on the
topic. All lectures and presentations will be translated simultaneously.
