digital-is-not-analog.2002
net.art, viruses, media jamming, modified videogames, hacking, errors

October 24 - 26, 2002

San Bartolomeo's Church - Campobasso (Italy)

+ + + + +

Digital-is-not-analog.2002 is a three day festival with presentations,
performances and debate. The event is meant to present to the Italian
public some creative projects that critically experiment on contemporary
digital technologies and communication styles.
Invited guests' works range on themes like data control and diffusion on
the Internet, modified videogames, computer virus culture and its
extension to digital communication at large, and finally free software
as a public domain tool.

The projects presented at digital-is-not-analog.2002 show that digital
technology can be a way of originally influence media landscape and
represent - both culturally and economically - a sustainable alternative
to empty hi-tech gadgets, mere spectacle and the exorbitant budget of
global tech-entertainment industry.

zelig.rc2 - L'information veut être libre
==========================================


Qu'est-ce que la zelig.rc2 ? Du 9 au 15 décembre prochain, une semaine
d'ateliers, démos, rencontres, débats, autour des réseaux, de la
communication, du logiciel libre et de la résistance électronique. Une
semaine où l'on parlera de technique, de politique, de désirs, de
créations, de mouvements...

Après la rencontre européenne de décembre 2000 (zeligConf), et la
rencontre hexagonale de février 2001 (no-zelig), nous souhaitons de
nouveau ouvrir un laboratoire temporaire de communication, un
espace-temps de circulation des savoirs et des savoirs faire, une zone
autonome où puissent converger et se combiner les cultures de
l'activisme et celle du hack, les pratiques de contre-information et
le génie productif du logiciel libre, la créativité des acteurs des
mouvements sociaux et celle des diverses communautés des réseaux.

Cette fois encore nous voulons donc faire le pari du mixage des
expériences, de l'hybridation des identités, de la transversalité des
réflexions et des pratiques. Nous voulons faire le pari de la
coopération productive entre les réalités multiples de la contestation
et de l'innovation sociales qui agissent dans les replis du réel.

La zelig.rc2 s'articulera autour d'un ensemble de thèmes, qui
donneront lieu tant à des ateliers pratiques et présentations, que des
rencontres, conférences et débats. Une diversité de formes qui, nous
l'espérons, permettra de combiner approche technique et approche
politique de l'ensemble des questions abordées.

     - Résistance électronique : protection des données personnelles,
       confidentialité des échanges via l'Internet, sécurisation
       d'ordinateurs, désobéissances à la surveillance généralisée,
       charte du « travailleur numérique ».

     - Cyberfeminism is an attitude : genre et technologie, identité
       et machine. Théories et pratiques de ces badgirls qui aiment
       les machines et jouent avec l'identité

     - Communication alternative : les outils (publication sur le web,
       mailing lists), les expériences (sindominio, collectifs.net,
       samizdat.net, Indymedia, etc.), la confrontation au pouvoir
       médiatique, la coopération au niveau européen.

Entre les mailles de ces thématiques, seront aussi ouverts divers
chantiers. En particulier : logiciel libre pour les enfants et
l'éducation, ressources pour les réseaux associatifs (firewall,
démocratie interne), communication sans-fils (WiFi), outils logiciels
pour la contestation électronique (Reamweaver), etc.

Enfin, la zelig.rc2 sera l'occasion de présenter un certains nombre
d'initiatives et de projets : no-log (services de connexions
non-loguées), l'Autre net (hébergement alternatif), AlternC (kit
logiciel pour l'hébergement de sites web), Plug'n'Politix
(initiative), Glastnost (Intranet pour association), Libre entreprise,
Fédération informatique et liberté, hacklabs (Italie, Espagne)...

Avec ce melting pot de prétextes pour se voir et de s'émouvoir, nous
entendons rappeler ce bon vieux principe hacker : l'information veut
être libre. Elle ne le doit pas, sur le mode d'une injonction
impuissante, elle le veut, parce que l'enjeu politique est celui de
notre liberté de circuler, de penser, de coder, de parler, d'aimer, de
créer, d'innover. L'information veut être libre, parce qu'elle ne peut
être soumise ni aux diktats marchands, ni aux injonctions policières.

zelig.rc2 - La información quiere ser libre
==========================================


Qué es la « zelig.rc2 » ? Del 9 al 15 de diciembre 2002, una semana de
talleres, demonstraciones, encuentros, debates alrededor de redes,
comunicaciones, logiciel libre y la resistencia electrónica. Una
semana en la cual se hablará de técnica, de política, de deseos, de
creaciones, de movimientosŠ.

Después del encuentro europeo de diciembre 2000 (zeligConf) y del
encuentro hexagonal de febreo 2001 (no-zelig), se trata hoy de abrir
un laboratorio temporal de comunicación, un espacio-tiempo de
circulación de los saberes y de las técnicas, una zona autónoma donde
puedan encontrarse e intercambiar culturas del activismo y del
« hack », dandole lugar a las prácticas de contra-información y al
genio productivo del logiciel libre, a la creatividad de los actores
de movimientos sociales y a las diversas comunidades des redes.

Hoy el desafío consiste en el intercambio de experiencias, de
identidades, en el cruce de reflexiones y de practicas. Este desafío
abarca la cooperación productiva entre las realidades multiples de la
contestación y las innovaciones sociales que actuan en los piegles de
lo real.

La zelig.rc2 se articulará en torno a un conjunto de temas que darán
lugar a talleres prácticos y presentaciones, encuentros, conferencias
y debates. Una diversidad de formas que - así lo esperamos - permitirá
confrontar enfoques técnicos y enfoques políticos examinando el
conjunto de la cuestiones planteadas.

     - Resistencia electronica ; protección de datos personales,
       confidencialidad de intercambios via Internet, seguridad de
       los computadores, desobediencia a la vigilancia generalizada,
       carta del "trabajador numérico".

     - Cyberfeminism is an attitude : género y tecnología, identidad
       y máquina. Teoría y prácticas de esas "badgirls" que gustan
       de las máquinas y juegan con la identidad.

     - Comunicación alternativa : los instrumentos (publicación en
       el web, mailing-lists), las experiencas (sindominio,
       collectifs.net, samizdat.net, Indymedia, etc.), la confrontación
       al poder mediático, la cooperación a nivel europeo.

Estas tematicas darán espacio igualmente a otros campos de estudios.
En especial : logiciel libre para niños y educación ; ingresos para
las redes associativas (firewall, democracia interna), communicación
sin hilos (WiFi) ; ilogiciels para la contestación électronica
(Reamweaver), etc.

Por último, la zelig.rc2 es una ocasión para dar cuena de iniciativas
y proyectos tales como no-log (servicios de connexiones sin logos),
l'Autre net (albergue alternativo), AlternC (kit logiciel para
albergue de sitios web), Plug'n'Politix (iniciativa), Glastnost
(Intranet para asociación), Libre empresa, Federación informática y
libertad, hacklabs (Italia, España)...

Con este melting pot de prétextos para vernos y conmovernos,
pretendemos recordar el viejo principio hacker : la informacion quiere
ser libre. No debe serlo por acatamiento a una orden. Su objetivo
politíco es obrar en función de la libertad de circular, de pensar, de
codificar, pero también de hablar, amar, crear, innovar. La
informacion quiere ser libre porque no puede ser sometida a los
diktats mercantiles, tampoco a las ordenes policiales.

zelig.rc2 - Information wants to be free
==========================================


What is zelig.rc2 ? On December 9th-15th, a week of workshops,
demonstration, encounters, debates, on networks, communication, free
software and electronic resistance. A week during which people will
talk about technics, politics, desires, creations, movements...

After the european meeting of December 2000 (zeligConf), and the
hexagonal meeting of February 2001 (no-zelig), we again want to open a
temporary communication laboratory, a space-time of knowledge and
skills, an autonomous zone where could converge and combine cultures
of hack and activism, practises of counter-information and productive
spirit of free software, creativity of social movements and networks
community.

So, this time again we want to bet on mixing experiences, on
hybridation of identities, on transversality of thoughts and
practises. We want to bet on productive cooperation between multiple
realities of contest and social innovation acting up in the folds of
Reality.

zelig.rc2 will articulate auround several themes, which will lead to
practical workshops and presentations, so as to encounters,
conferences and debates. A diversity of forms which we hope will allow
to combine technical an political approaches of all questions tackled.

     - Electronic resistance : personal data protection,
       confidentionnality of exchanges via Internet, computer
       securisation, disobedience to general invigilation,
       "digital worker" charter.

     - Cyberfeminism is an attitude : gender and technology, indentity
       and machine. Theories and practises of those badgirls who love
       machines and play with identity.

     - Alternative communication : tools (webposting, mailing lists),
       experiences (sindominio, collectifs.net, samizdat.net,
       Indymedia, etc.), confronting the media power, cooperation at
       an european level.

In the stitches of this thematic net, will also be open several works.
Specifically : free software for kids and education, ressources for
associative networks (firewall, inner democracy), wireless
communication (WiFi), electronic contest software (Reamweaver), etc.

At last, zelig.rc2 will be the occasion to present certain initiatives
and projects : no-log (non-logged connection services), l'Autre net
(alternative provider), AlternC (software kit for websites hosting),
Plug'n'Politix (political initiative), Glasnost (Intranet fot
associations), Libre entreprise, Fédération informatique et liberté,
hacklabs (Italy, Spain)...

With this melting pot of good reasons to meet and meet again, we
intend to call back this good old hacker principle : Information wants
to be free. It must not, as an impotent injunction, it wants, as the
political stake is our freedom to move, think, code, talk, love,
create, innovate. Information wants to break free, because it cannot
be submitted to commercial diktats nor police injunctions.

>From Transforming Play: Family Albums and Monster Movies by guest
curator Katie Salen:

"In March 2001 at the ICA in London, musician Brian Eno gave a lecture
linking his compositional process to John Conway's game of "Life". The
game of "Life", like Eno's generative music, creates unexpected patterns
of events out of a very simple rule system. In his discussion, Eno
identified the difficulty of writing the rules of a system: "How do you
create the conditions at the bottom to allow the growth of the things
you want to happen?" Eno's question not only highlights the challenge of
designing emergent systems but also points to a phenomenon known as
transformative play. Because the creators of emergent systems, like
generative music or games, can never fully anticipate how the rules will
play out, they are limited to the design of the formal structures that
go on to produce patterns of events. Sometimes the forms of play that
emerge from these structures overwhelm and transform, generating rich
and resistant outcomes. Sometimes, in fact, the force of play is so
powerful that it can change the rule structure itself. A playful slang
term can become an idiom, for example, and may eventually be adopted
into a dictionary, becoming part of the larger cultural structures,
which it originally playfully opposed.

In the case of digital games, transformative play emerges from the
interaction between inventive players and the games they play, like
Quake, Doom, or The Sims. Transformative play occurs when the free
movement of play alters the more rigid rule structure in which it takes
shape. The play doesn't just occupy the interstices of the system, but
actually transforms the space as a whole. A cyberfeminist game patch
that creates transsexual versions of Lara Croft is an example of
transformative play, as is the use of the Quake game engine as a
movie-making tool. It would make sense, then, to consider transformative
play as a powerful creative strategy within digital culture." Katie

Subject: <9.11. Netzwerke> media conference

<9.11. NETZWERKE>

A media conference in an intermedial and multimedia ambience:
talks, discussions, installation, performances, Gunafa Clubbing.
A project by Kuenstlerhaus Mousonturm, curated by Station Rose.

http://www.stationrose.com/netzwerke.html

Sat.  9.11.2002  2 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Kuenstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstrasse 4, D-60316 Frankfurt

* Concept.
The failure of the dotcoms and the ebbing of the internet hype are no
longer anything new. Net.art wants to find its way into the art fairs,
galleries and museums and there is scarcely still a DJ today who would dare
go on stage without the support of a VJ.
Retro seems to be the answer of industry, the mass media and the culture
industry. But retro has never been the answer.
The clear, stringent development away from the old laws of tendency to a
new plane such as from cinema to virtual spaces, from the CD to CD-ROM and
DVD, from interactive art to net art which was hoped for in the nineties
can no longer be discerned at the moment.

It is a matter rather of the repeatedly retroesque attempts to put old
contents into new packaging and new forms of expression into old
environments. Does retro thus mean a permanent threat, standstill? Which
networks exist in the context of art/music/net which act and do not merely
react?
At this one-day conference, the possibility of a new stocktaking is to be
created, an interdisciplinary overview won, and artistic and theoretical
drafts presented and discussed.

* Themes.
Net.art and web.art, webcasting, networking, pop, mobile computing,
audio-visual performances, net criticism, viability, media and system
 theory, youth culture versus silver kids, retroesque versus recycling, etc.

* Speakers & Performers:
Malcolm McLaren (producer, artist, London)
Station Rose/Elisa Rose & Gary Danner (hypermedia artists, Frankfurt)
John Coate (The WELL, EFF)
Dr. Richard Barbrook (ICA/cybersalon London)
F.E Rakuschan (media-theorist, Vienna)
Dr. Thomas Feuerstein (mediartist & -theorist, Vienna)
Prof. Ralf Homann (Bauhausuniversity Weimar, Experimental Radio)
pingfm.org (Multimedia Band, Bauhausuniversity Weimar)
Bizz_Circuits (Frankfurt)
DFM.nu (Amsterdam)
Bidner/Martinek (Innsbruck)
n0name.de (Kassel/Berlin)

* Installation <Elektronic Habitat>.
STR will construct a media lobby which offers the possibility of immersive
submerging, of excitement and relaxation, to surf and navigate. It is an
electronic habitat inviting to meet, hang out, gather information and
relax. Immaterial visuals and sounds flow together with the materialized
set-up of the installation. Visual samples and distillates from the flow of the
evening´s audiovisual STR-performance merge with the materialized set-up of
the installation. It is a living space which will exist for one day. It is
supposed to assist those attending to actually stay the distance of the
marathon since the symposium will start at 2p.m. and finish around two or
three in the morning.  Projectors and monitors and also exhibition objects
made of specially printed materials will be used. A P.A. system will fill the
space. The art is digital and fluid, the surroundings are material, created by
high-tech means of production. It entices with the softness of the materials.
Modular units define the installation. Art objects, individual pieces,
created by
STR especially for the conference, will be put on the art market afterwards.

* Webcasting.
STR will set up a STReaming studio on location to follow the conference
(2:00pm - 2:00am) in realtime at www.stationrose.com.
Live-streams from pingfm.org, Bauhausuniversity Weimar, DFM.nu, Amsterdam,
as well as a charming LivemusicSTReam from Innsbruck among others can be
experienced at the Media-Lobby throughout the congress.

* Gunafa Clubbing (on from 11pm)
Gunafa Clubbing, started in 1989 by Station Rose, was the first
performance-concept worldwide, combining club culture and audio-visual
live-performance with an online connection.
"Europe´s most unusual club" (London Sunday Times, 26.9.1993) will again
include Station Rose live.
Incoming live webcasts will be morphed into the evening.
Special live guest:  Bizz_Circuits

* Media-partner: hr Late Lounge. Supported by Fonds Soziokultur.

WEB AS CANVAS - net.art  {AT}  Art Futura 2002 - Barcelona
an exhibition curated by Roberta Bosco and Stefano Caldana

Dates: October 31 - November 3, 2002
Place: CCCB (Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona).
Online: http://www.artfutura.org/expo_lared_e.html

Web as Canvas is a show of ten projects, which offer different ways to paint
with the code and establish clear bonds with the great movements of modern
art. All the projects are representative of the new creative tendencies in
Internet and are directly linked to the topic of this year festival:
³stretched painting².
Nine of these are already existing projects and one of them, World Wall
Painters, by the collective Area3 from Barcelona has been specially made for
Art Futura 2002. It is an application for the Carnivore Project by RSG
Radical Software Group, based on the software of the same name developed by
the FBI to "wire tap" Internet data. The Carnivore spies on data packages
and offers artists these packages to be reinterpreted in a creative way,
turning thus the own computer code into a work of art. In World Wall
Painters, an instrument of repression and control such as the Carnivore
becomes a dispenser of realistic paintings. Using the same irony of Jasper
Johns' flag, Area3's World Wall Painters paint constantly the flags of the
countries of those webs keyed by the users. The result is a collage that
points out the democratic utopia in the Internet and the current reality of
the access to information and new technologies.

PRESENTATION:
Thursday, October 31 - 17:00 / Auditorium CCCB
Web as Canvas - Carnivore
Special Session with Cory Arcangel, Radical Software Group and Area3
Chaired by Roberta Bosco y Stefano Caldana

On October 1st 2001, Radical Software Group (RSG), an international
collective of net.artists announced the launch of the Carnivore Project,
based on the software with the same name used by the FBI to spy and control
data through the Internet, although its aim is to transform the data
obtained by the Carnivore through the Internet into art.
The project, awarded in Ars Electronica 2002, has counted with the
involvement of important names in the international digital art scene.
Cory Arcangel, RSG member, will put forward the project's philosophy while
collective from Barcelona Area3 will present World Wall Painters, their
contribution to Carnivore.

The Second Annual Digital Festival
5 November - 28 November 2002

Talks on copyright, intellectual property and the public domain:

Wed 6 Nov, 7.30pm, ICA Cinema
JOHN PERRY BARLOW
Who Owns the Garden of the Mind?

Once called the ŒThomas Jefferson of cyberspace¹ John Perry Barlow has been
a Wyoming rancher, co-writer of songs with The Grateful Dead, and a key
figure in debates about cyberliberties, copyright in a digital age, and the
digital divide. He has been on Wired¹s masthead since its inception and his
manifesto A Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace has been widely
distributed on the net. On an increasingly surveillanced planet, and in a
world where intellectual property is owned by major corporations such as
AOL/Time Warner, John Perry Barlow talks about politics and ownership.

Thur 14 Nov, 7.30pm, ICA Theatre
IS COPYRIGHT A GOOD THING?

What¹s Œfair¹ about Œfair use¹? What happens to intellectual property when
it is in the public domain? Who should determine the relative rights and
responsibilities in relation to artists and their works? Does technology
make a difference? As a follow up to last years CODE conference in
Cambridge, we present a panel debate on the rights and wrongs of private
property vs public domain. Speakers include: John Howkins, author of The
Creative Economy, Penguin 2002; Jennifer Jenkins, the director of the Centre
For The Study of the Public Domain, Duke University; Vicki Bennett, artist
(aka People Like Us), novelist Stewart Home; sound artist Joe Banks and
Karsten Schubert, editor of the recently published book on copyright Dear
Images: Art Copyright And Culture.

Subject: VIPER BASEL 2002

VIPER BASEL International Festival for Film, Video and New Media

For four days and four nights ­ from Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 October ­
Basel will again be the lively meeting point for the Swiss and international
film and media art scene. The range of entries includes analogue and digital
video, film and computer animation, interactive projects and internet-based
works, whereby the focus is not so much on the carrier-media as on the
media-specific strategies and narrative concepts.

When handling new media we are being repeatedly confronted with ever new
challenges worldwide. Radically new forms of communication between people
and apparatus are becoming established and new knowledge models and networks
are giving rise to alternative forms of social action. VIPER Basel 2002
addresses these highly controversial issues under the motto public |
private. The debate will concentrate on the tension between individual and
collective integration into the computer-supported structures of
contemporary societies. VIPER raises the critical question of the innovative
potential and the aesthetic and political impact of the new media. For where
technologies aim to be innovative and art seeks a position, parameters such
as perception, individual and society, presentation and communication are
being fundamentally questioned.

Locations: Festival Center Theater Basel, Stadtkino Basel, Kultkino Camera

     Die Ausstellung outofsight - außer Sicht - thematisiert die
     Wahrnehmung von Strukturen, Menschen und Orten in der Stadt.
     Sie spielt mit dem Sehen und Gesehen werden, dem Beobachten
     und Beobachtet werden. Oliver van den Berg, Andreas
     Gehlen/Alexandra Müller und Désirée Palmen setzen sich mit
     Situationen in Köln auseinander, die sie vorgefunden und
     konzeptuell bearbeitet haben. Ihre Arbeiten bewegen sich an
     der Schnittstelle zwischen dem Alltag und dem Versuch, aus ihm
     auszubrechen. Sie stellen alltägliche Strukturen und Abläufe
     in Frage, die aufgrund ihrer Regelmäßigkeit oft nicht mehr
     wahrgenommen werden. Sie kreisen auch um die Themen Intimität
     und Öffentlichkeit, den Wunsch der Menschen, im
     Großstadtdschungel für andere unsichtbar zu werden und sich
     dem öffentlichen, extrem aufgeladenen und schutzlosen Raum zu
     entziehen.

     Die Fotografien und Videos von Désirée Palmen zeigen Menschen,
     die sich mimikriartig an ihre jeweilige Umgebung anpassen. Die
     Personen tragen von der Künstlerin selbst genähte und für eine
     spezifische Situation bemalte Kleidung. Danach werden sie in
     dem entsprechenden Innen- oder Außenraum fotografiert bzw.
     gefilmt. Im Schnittraum wird ein Video und eine Fotografie zu
     sehen sein, die am Kölner Hbf entstanden sind und sich mit
     Obdachlosen und Touristen auseinandersetzt. Die Installationen
     von Andreas Gehlen und Alexandra Müller entstehen vor Ort und
     beziehen das Umfeld konkret mit ein. Verschiedene Materialien
     und Objekte werden zu raumgreifenden, strukturellen
     Arrangements, die mal chaotisch, mal eher minimalistisch
     anmuten und auch urbane oder mythologische Bezüge aufweisen.
     Im Schnittraum entsteht eine neue Raumsituation, die das Innen
     und Außen thematisiert. Oliver van den Berg arbeitet in
     seinem  Video "Videobug-Köln" mit einer 360°-Kamera, die er
     auf seinem Autodach montiert hat. In Köln ist er die Strecke
     eines Sightseeingbusses abgefahren und hat damit Menschen und
     Objekte beobachtet.

     Zur Ausstellung erscheint ein Katalog.

     bewegen. Ziel ist es, ein Forum des Austausches zu schaffen,
     bei dem es neben der Auseinandersetzung mit unterschiedlichen
     künstlerischen Positionen vor allem darum geht, etwas über das
     Selbstverständnis der KünstlerInnen zu erfahren. Werkgespräche
     ermöglichen einen intensiven Diskurs, bei dem auch Aspekte wie
     persönliche Motivation, politische und soziale Hintergründe
     sowie unterschiedliche Arbeitsweisen und -bedingungen ins
     Blickfeld geraten.
