Subject: Salloum videotapes Oct. 20th at the Cinematheque

untitled: Jayce Salloum 1999-2002
Sunday October 20 - 7:30 pm
Pacific Cinematheque

Tonight, Jayce Salloum, curator of our "in/tangible cartographies: new arab 
video" exhibition, will present his own "untitled" project, an ongoing 
videotape addressing subjects living through crises/change, personal 
interventions in political realities, and the overarching theme of  
interstitiality. In part 1: everything and nothing (1999-2001, 40 mins.), 
Salloum, off-camera, talks with Soha Bechara, the ex-Lebanese National 
Resistance fighter who was detained for 10 years in the notorious El-Khiam 
torture and interrogation center in South Lebanon. In a riveting and intimate 
conversation, Salloum inquires about home, being interviewed to  death, 
resistance, survival, and the distance between Paris, where Bechara now 
lives, and Khiam. In part 2: beauty and the east (1999-2002, 
work-in-progress, excerpt c. 20 mins.), Salloum turns obliquely to the former 
Yugoslavia. In a kaleidoscope of interviews, refugees, migrants, asylum see
kers, and residents address topics ranging from identity and fascism to 
optimism and monsters. In both anecdotal and theoretical recountings, they 
lay out the issues currently at stake in this region of displacement and 
redefinition; their words are located within images of cities and landscapes. 
Also shown will be a preview sequence of part 3: (as if) beauty never ends… 
(2002, 11 mins.), in which a montage of orchids blooming and footage from the 
sites of the 1982 massacres at Lebanon's Sabra and Shatilla refugee camps 
provides an elegiac response to the Palestinian dispossession. 

To be followed by a Q & A with the director.

Duration: 15 – 25 October, 2002


Closure: 25 October, 19.00 h. - Round table: Body/Mind/Society

Speakers: PhD Georgi Stojanov, Docent at ETF – Skopje, Melentije Pandilovski, Director at CAC-Skopje and Suzana Milevska, Curator at Open Graphic Art Studio and the artists – participants at Body Thinks


The project Body Thinks  has been organized as a part of the fifth anniversary celebration of the establishing of the Open Graphic Art Studio at the Museum of the City of Skopje (September 1998). Ten young artists were invited to participate with their works in different media responding to the various aspects of the theme that deals with the relation between the physical and mental aspects of the body. The art works are going to be executed either as commissions or some of them already exist but are related to the theme.  


The relation between body, mind and society entails complex intertwining that reflects and influences the contemporary society and therefore the art practice. In the period when the computer science explores the human brain and the way in which functions the mental processes the brain becomes more than a metaphor. It serves as a functioning model for the scientific research of the scientists who try to overcome the obstacles of the binary computational system and to establish a completely new quantum system of computation. Thus many new sciences emerged from such interdisciplinary researches such as memetic. – the science that deals with memory units. Memes are considered as bearers of memory that treat the knowledge as transferable heritage similarly to what genes are for genetics.

Nevertheless, the process of thinking in the human brain still remains unresolved mystery to ordinary people and the way in which the physical body and mental states of the body are intermingled is a provocation for the contemporary artists as well. When taking into account that the society as the wider context for such processes reflects its problems inevitably it is therefore no accident that the works of most of the artists invited to this project are concerned with the contextual problems that they face in their cultural and social context such as the brain drain, cultural and political conflicts, the ecological, technological, political or economical issues.


Through the media of interactive silk-screen print, computer drawing, ink – jet print, objects,  photography, video, video installation, slides, performance, Liquid Crystal Display etc. the artists will try to give voice and visibility to existing cultural and social hot issues. A brochure and postcards of each artwork will be presented at the closure of the exhibition.

Atanas Botev: Kinds of Sights, 2002, silkscreen – 3 interactive prints, 45 x 67 cm

Workshop: "Online archives: perspectives on networked knowledge spaces"

25-26 October 2002 at the Fraunhofer Institute for Media Communications,
Schloss Birlinghoven, Sankt Augustin, near Bonn, Germany

The Media Art Research Studio (MARS) at Fraunhofer Institute for Media
Communication presents the Internet platform for digital arts and
culture: netzspannung.org. The Internet platform develops strategies for
conveying media-cultural content on the Internet and shows new methods
and technologies for accessing and visualising digital archives.
netzspannung.org is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education
and Research.

The workshop "Online archive: perspectives on networked knowledge
spaces" presents the results in the context of other cultural platforms
and current research in the field of information visualisation and
knowledge management.

During the workshop, international experts from culture and research
will present innovative technical solutions, visualisation methods and
dissemination strategies. The workshop is designed to support exchanges
between different cultural platforms in order to initiate discussion of
new dissemination strategies, contents and financing models.

The lectures provide an insight into the very latest developments in the
field of information and knowledge landscapes which are rapidly changing
cultural and business life. Information and knowledge are the key
success factors in decision-making and design processes in networked
culture spaces.

The programme is directed at persons in positions of responsibility in
the field of culture, business, the academic world, training,
developers, designers and curators. The workshop will be held in German
and English, with simultaneous interpreting also being provided. You can
find details of the programme at:

Participants in the two-day workshop must pay a contribution to costs of
Euro 150. This covers food and refreshments during the day plus an
evening buffet. Information on how to pay will be provided when your
registration is confirmed. You will also be provided with a description
of how to reach the venue and information about possible accommodation.

>  TRIGGER         
>  OCTOBER 25 - DECEMBER 1, 2002

    Opening Reception, Friday, 25 October 6-8pm
>Trigger, a new two-channel video work by Jordan Crandall, continues the
>artist¹s investigation of the relationship among military technologies,
>forms of seeing, and desire. With a running time of 18 minutes, Trigger
>follows two armed men through the shadows of an abandoned construction site
>as they hunt one another. Suspended between extremes of control and danger,
>the two engage in a tense and hypervigilant dance of predator and prey.
>Crandall  combines lush 16 mm color film and video from surveillance cameras
>and military targeting systems, as well as an eye-tracked synchronization
>system that automatically aligns weapons with the human eye, drawing us into
>a world where the predatory vision of weapons, the camera, and the erotic
>gaze all intertwine.
>Projected in Gallery One on two facing walls, Trigger invites viewers to
>move through the charged space between opposing images, unable to capture
>both sides in a single glance. In Gallery Two, Crandall presents a group of
>large video stills as well as a series of more intimate pencil drawings that
>diagram the structure of key moments in Trigger.
>Jordan Crandall has exhibited internationally, most recently in solo
>exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art
>in Helsinki, the TENT Centrum in Rotterdam, and the Kitchen in New York, as
>well as group shows at the ZKM in Karlsruhe and P.S. 1 among many others.
>His single-channel video Heatseeking was commissioned by InSITE 2000 and
>exhibited in Bitstreams at the Whitney Museum of American Art last year.
>Crandall is known for his video and
>photographic works as well as his own writings and activity in a wide range
>of online projects. His works are held in numerous private and public
>collections, including the Progressive Corporation, the ZKM Zentrum für
>Kunst und Medientechnologie, and the Neue Galerie and Landesmuseum Joanneum

Zondag 3 november 2002: debat over kunstenaarsinitiatieven

SMART Project Space, 1e Const. Huygenstraat 20 te Amsterdam.

Zondag 3 november 2002 om 15.00 uur vindt in SMART Project Space een debat plaats over kunstenaarsinitiatieven. De organisatie van dit debat is in handen van AICA-Nederland (Association International des Critiques d'Art) in samenwerking met SMART Project Space.

De vragen die bij dit debat centraal staan zijn: Welke plaats nemen de kunstenaarsinitiatieven op dit moment in binnen het veld van de cultuur? Welke rol spelen zij bijvoorbeeld binnen de huidige kunstproductie wanneer je in ogenschouw neemt dat steeds meer kunstenaars zelf kleinschalige initiatieven ontplooien? Hoe dienen zij zich op te stellen tegenover mogelijk subsidiegevers: moeten ze streven naar langlopende, structurele subsidies of is het huidige systeem van kortlopende, incidentele subsidies toch het beste? Welke keuze willen de initiatieven maken tussen de uitersten van commercialisering en institutionalisering? Hoe willen de initiatieven zich verhouden tot enerzijds de musea en anderzijds gevestigde instellingen voor experimentele kunst zoals De Appel en Witte de With?

Als sprekers zullen optreden Ann Demeester (directeur W 139), Alex Adriaansens (directeur V2), Erik Hobijn en Dirk van Lieshout (beeldend kunstenaars), en Thomas Peutz (directeur SMART Project Space). Tineke Reijnders (voorzitter AICA-Nederland) zal een korte inleiding houden en Janneke Wesseling(kunstcriticus NRC-Handelsblad) treedt op als moderator.
