Subject: State of Emergency

[Hi all, the Special Section on the State of Emergency that I have had a
hand in editing for _TCS is now out. For some reason, my Introduction does
not appear to warrant a URL -- maybe _TCS is trying to tell me something ...
No matter, for those interested in a technopolitics/infowar angle on
September 11 and afterwards, see the article by Mick Dillon; for those
interested in the debate over Hardt and Negri's _Empire see the critique by
John O'Neill. However, it has to be said that the entire Special Section is
very strong. As usual, I would be grateful if CSL members would spread this
message far and wide. Best wishes, John.]

===============================================================
(1) Tokyo Editors' Diary
===============================================================

Nakanishi Daisuke (Little More), vol. 003

Although we're approaching our next deadline, I'm still doing interviews.  
Today I'm talking to Fukuda Kazuya and musician Toyota Michinori in a
karaoke box in Gakugei-daigaku. Toyota brought a guitar, and the four
pieces he plays us in a closed room (kind of an experiment on humans) are
really cool. Also joining is an old friend from the Fukuda seminar, Arai
Ryo, and he seems to be one of the few music friends of Toyota. Inoue
Yumiko takes a series of polaroids, and we don't have time to wait for the
design. When the session is over Fukuda flies off like the wind, and
togther with Omine, one of our editors, I run to balance the books.

(2) Out of Tokyo, vol. 47
===============================================================

The Translation Agency Project

The next REALTOKYO BAR event, titled "One Year After: the media one year
after 10/8," is coming up on 10/11 (Fri), and besides this we've just
starting a new project on REALTOKYO (for the time being only on the
Japanese page, English coming later). We have established a page on the
theme of "I want to translate this book,"  giving spirited translators and
translators-to-be a platform to introduce selected books that are not yet
available in a Japanese translation, along with their own profiles and
translation samples. Interested publishers can get in touch with
applicants to make direct assignments. This, by the way, happens without
any profit on the REALTOKYO side. The idea is to connect translators and
publishers, in order to produce Japanese editions of interesting but for
some reason not (yet) translated books.

===============================================================
(3) Event Pick of the Week
===============================================================

Contemporary Israeli Design: Chanan de Lange Exhibition

It often happens that the best and most refined works are produced not in
an environment where everything is possible and available, but rather in
circumstances of restriction. This event kicks off a series introducing
design from Israel that was born out of a limited market where equipment
and materials are insufficient and the economical situation unstable. On
display at this first exhibition are stools based on freehand-drawn
sketches, stack rooms that hang down from the ceiling, and other items
that exceed our established perception of design. Following this
exhibition, Tal Gur and Yaacov Kaufman are showing their works at the
"Tokyo Designers Block" event. - -- Murata Yuko

===============================================================
(4) Presents
===============================================================

This week we give away a total of ten tickets to five readers for the
"Puiforcat Exhibition," as well as three copies of "Nami 4 Ever For Longer
Ride," an illustrated book by Nigel Scott and Nomura Yoshio.

Recent news from the Daniel Langlois Foundation - Fall 2002


LAUNCH OF THE DVD-ROM *ANARCHIVE 2: DIGITAL SNOW* 

After spending three years developing a prototype and seeking partners and
funding, we are proud to launch an electronic catalogue that brings
together a wealth of information and documentation on the Canadian artist
Michael Snow and all areas of his work.

A co-production by the Foundation and poxy Communications, this DVD-ROM
is put out by Les ditions du Centre Pompidou.

For further details, consult:
<http://www.fondation-langlois.org/e/collection/snow/index.html>


DESCRIPTIONS AND FILES FOR PROJECTS BY INDIVIDUALS FUNDED IN 2002

Given the importance we place on making public the research and findings
of the projects we fund, we invite you to consult the files describing the
funded projects and the artists or groups of researchers involved. Fully
illustrated with photo reproductions and audio or video excerpts from past
works, the section on projects supported by the Foundation lets you
explore a whole spectrum of artistic projects at the vanguard of research
in science and technology, daring and relevant projects in our
hypermediatized world.

CHANGES TO THE PROGRAMS FOR ORGANIZATIONS

Note that the Exhibition, Distribution and Performance Program for
Organizations and the Program for Organizations from Emerging Regions have
been suspended and are being reviewed. In December, we will announce the
guidelines for the new program designed for organizations.

The program for individuals, artists or researchers remains unchanged, and
the deadline for applying is still *January 31, 2003*.

DR. GERALD O'GRADY, THE RESEARCHER IN RESIDENCE AT THE FOUNDATION'S CENTRE
FOR RESEARCH AND DOCUMENTATION (CR+D), IS IN MONTREAL TILL JANUARY 2003

A retired academic, Dr. O'Grady contributed greatly to the early years of
electronic arts by founding several departments of media studies, in
particular at the State University of New York at Buffalo. The faculty at
SUNY Buffalo included such eminent artists as the Vasulkas, Hollis
Frampton, Paul Sharits, Tony Conrad, Peter Weibel and James Blue. During
his stay in Montreal, Dr. O'Grady will help the Foundation analyze the
Steina and Woody Vasulka Archives and interpret the findings in an on-line
publication by the Foundation.

University professors in Montreal who are interested in inviting Dr.
O'Grady to address their class (in English) can contact the Foundation at:

Subject: Art Documentary Association

- --============_-1177644096==_ma============
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" ; format="flowed"

Dear Friends,

I recently developed a site to provide an online forum for art 
documentary makers.  It can be found at 
(http://www.artdocumentary.org)  The Art Documentary Association's 
mission is to provide a forum to find out how art documentary makers 
can create enticing art documentaries that are intelligent, exciting 
and accessible.

The success of this association depends on the activity of the community.  
I am hoping that art documentary makers will share experiences and
collaboratively work together to create better arts education models
through the media.  I welcome articles, opinions and resource information
to be posted on the site.

Please tell all that may be interested to visit the site at:  
http://www.artdocumentary.org.  If you have any questions or need
additional information please do not hesitate to contact me at
seththompson {AT} wigged.net.  Thank you for your time.

Best wishes,

Seth Thompson

From: Redaktion Springerin <springerin {AT} springerin.at>
Subject: new issue out now

Out now: springerin 3_02 "Cosmopolitics"

springerin 3_02 investigates the call for an emancipatory view of
"cosmopolitics" and a new concept of world citizenship, and explores their
repercussions within a globally extended contemporary culture.

There is a central opposition reflected in the wide conceptual range of
the term "cosmopolitics." On the one hand, it gathers together hopes and
projections aimed towards establishing "fundamentally democratic"
international cultural politics with a multi-cultural reach. On the other,
the "cosmopolitical" - in as far as it always also has to do with
politico-cultural supremacy - also comprises the quest for power, and we
are warned of global endeavours by the USA - the last remaining world
power - in this direction.

A close scrutiny of new, internationalist institutions purporting to have
a cosmopolitan outlook shows that "cosmopolitics," or its strategic
employment, is often also based on exclusions.

springerin 3_02 includes articles by: Ruben Arevshatyan, Ieva Auzina,
Jochen Becker, C=E3lin Dan, Matthias Dusini, Petra Erdmann, Christian
H=F6ller, Vill=F6 Huszai, Nebjosa Jovanovic, Alessandro Ludovico, Yates
McKee, Suzana Milevska, Achille Mbembe, Bert Rebhandl, Klaus Ronneberger,

Subject: Milkbar: Globalisation and the Everyday City.

Dear Nettime,

I would like to introduce my project to you. It is an oral-history account
that speculatively tries to understand globalisation within an inner-city
Australian community. It is almost due for submission as part of a
Doctorate program here at RMIT University in Melbourne. Your comments are
most appreciated and I will try and enact on them if you have any major
suggestions.

Milkbar.com.au: Globalisation and the Everyday City Creator Bellamy, Craig
Subject Humanities; History; Oral History; Local History; Melbourne,
Fitzroy

Description This is a project that seeks to offer a speculative encounter
with the set of ideas called 'globalisation' through utilising some of the
new tools offered to researchers. Using a mini digital video camera, I
have recorded a number of people in the suburb of Fitzroy, an inner city
suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The creator has asked people what they
identify with in the suburb, how this has changed over time, and what they
see as negative or positive changes. Succinctly, the raison d'tre of the
project is to create an oral history archive of the area in a period of
rapid change and to try and understand some of these changes within larger
analytical frameworks.

take care,

Craig

Subject: HISTORICAL MATERIALISM seeking reviewers

Dear Comrades/Colleagues

Historical Materialism seeks to publish critical discursive reviews/review
articles of recent publications that would be of interest to Marxists and
readers of the journal. In particular encourages reviews that contextualise
and extend debate, and accepts reviews of books that have affinities or
common debates upon which critical discourse can be developed. It normally
allows between 3,000 and 6,000 words for a review, and potential
contributors are asked to seek out a copy of the journal to familiarise
themselves with the style and nature of the publication - we tend to reject
short, purely descriptive pieces.

If you are a historical materialist and want to review for us, let us know
what areas you are willing to review in, and tell us what your research
interests are (some indication of previous publications would be useful). I
list below a sample of books currently available for review that we are
actively seeking reviewers for. If you want more details about the book,
please contact me. If you already know the book and/or the author/editor,
please give us some outline of how you would plan to deal with the book in a
review. For any enquiries or correspondence in this regard, mail Paul
Reynolds on reynoldp {AT} edgehill.ac.uk (full contact details are below in the
e-mail signature.)
