Empfohlene Anreise: Mittwoch, 28. Mai 2003

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1. EINLADUNG ZUM PROGRAMM-BEITRAG

Wir laden alle Menschen, Initiativen, Organisationen und Netzwerke ein, ihre
Anliegen, ihr Wissen und ihre Erfahrungen in das Austrian Social Forum
einzubringen und Beiträge zur Programmgestaltung an
programmkoordination {AT} socialforum.at zu senden und/oder sich organisatorisch auf
den Vorbereitungstreffen einzubringen.


THEMATISCHE ACHSEN

Das ASF orientiert sich an vier thematischen Achsen. Diese Achsen dienen nicht
dazu, dem ASF eine spezifische Sicht auf Probleme (oder eine Weltanschauung)
vorzugeben, sondern zur groben Orientierung der Menschen und Gruppen, die mit
ihren Veranstaltungen und Diskussionsangeboten beitragen wollen:

+ Arbeit, Soziale Rechte und Wohlbefinden / Arbeitssinn und Arbeitslast
+ Neoliberalismus / Wirtschaft und Mitwelt
+ Herrschaft, Ausgrenzung und Partizipation
+ Krieg und neue Weltordnung

Die thematischen Achsen des Programms haben pragmatische Funktion:
Sie wurden so konkret abgefasst, dass mensch sich etwas vorstellen kann und
gleichzeitig so abstrakt gehalten, dass sie Raum für die phantasievolle
Gestaltung der jeweiligen Beiträge lassen.

Alle Podien, Runden Tischen etc. sollen in einem ausgewogenen Verhältnis
zwischen praktischen und theoretischen ExpertInnen, Frauen und Männern besetzt
werden. Bei allen Veranstaltungen soll unterrepräsentierten Gruppen - wie Frauen
und MigrantInnen - bevorzugt Raum gegeben werden.

3. AUFRUF ZUR FINANZIELLEN BETEILIGUNG

Von 29. Mai bis 01. Juni 2003 findet in Hallein bei Salzburg das erste
Österreichische Sozialforum als Pendant zum Europäischen Sozialforum (ESF) und
zum Weltsozialforum (WSF) - statt. Die Betonung liegt auf stattfinden und nicht
auf gründen, da sich eine Bewegung nicht gründen lässt.

Nach Hallein sind alle Menschen, Gruppen, Organisationen, Netzwerke und
Initiativen eingeladen, die sich an den drei Säulen - die auch den gemeinsamen
Nenner des ESF und des WSF bilden - orientieren:
Gegen den Krieg, gegen die herrschende neoliberale Globalisierung und für
soziale und politische Rechte für jeden Menschen.
Das ASF in Hallein wird in einem mehr als sechs Monate dauernden Prozess
vorbereitet.
Die Wahl der Orte der Vorbereitungstreffen (Wien, Linz, Graz, Salzburg) spiegelt
wieder, dass die Bewegung österreichweit angelegt ist.
Die Zusammenarbeit und der Austausch finden im Respekt vor den
Unterschiedlichkeiten von Geschlecht, Herkunft, Weltanschauung, Konfession und
sexueller Orientierung statt.

Dreh- und Angelpunkt für ein Gelingen des ASF ist die möglichst breite
Beteiligung:
Über 500 Einrichtungen und unzählige Einzelpersonen wurden angesprochen, sich
aktiv an der Gestaltung des Programms zu beteiligen. In dieser Vorgangsweise
liegt der eigentliche Kern der Sozialforenbewegung:
Das österreichische Sozialforum bietet einen Rahmen, einen realen Ort, die
Infrastruktur.
Die Inhalte, die Vernetzungsstruktur und die Auseinandersetzungen müssen jedoch
von den unterschiedlichen Menschen und Gruppen selbst geplant und durchgeführt
werden.

Wie gut dieser aktivierende und emanzipatorische Ansatz funktioniert, zeigte der
weltweit durchgeführte Aktionstag gegen den Krieg am 15.02.03, der vom
Weltsozialforum und von den jeweiligen kontinentalen Sozialforen ausgerufen
wurde.
Diese bislang einzigartige, weltweite Protestaktion zeigt das enorme Potenzial
einer "Globalisierung von unten", das auch in Hallein sichtbar und erfahrbar
gemacht werden soll.

Für Hallein haben sich VertreterInnen von Nicht-Regierungs-Organisationen
(NGOs), Vereinen, Netzwerken aus dem Sozial-, Frauen-, MigrantInnen-, Ökologie-,
Behinderten- und Bildungsbereich sowie Gewerkschaften, Kirchen, Kunst und Kultur
angesagt.

Die Kalkulation des ASF 03 steht auf http://www.socialforum.at in Kürze zur
Einsicht bereit.

Obwohl die Stadtgemeinde Hallein das ASF in vielerlei Hinsicht unterstützt,
müssen für die Finanzierung (neben den Teilnahmegebühren) weitere Beiträge von
Organisationen angefragt werden:

Wir bitten um schriftliche Spenden-Zusagen an: office {AT} socialforum.at

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

4. EINLADUNG ZUM 3. ÜBERREGIONALEN VORBEREITUNGSTREFFEN

Das nächste überregionale Vorbereitungstreffen,
zu dem wir sehr herzlich einladen, findet am
Samstag, den 29. März 2003, von 10.00 bis 17.00 Uhr
im ÖGB/AK-Saal
in Graz, Kosakengasse 8, 1. Stock (Südtirolerplatz)
statt.

+++++++++++

5. KONTAKTE

Weiterführende Informationen: http://www.socialforum.at
Kontakte: http://www.socialforum.at/sf/mailinglisten

++++++++++++++++++++++++

6. WAS SIND SOZIALFOREN?

Die weltweiten Sozialforen stehen unter dem Motto "Eine andere Welt ist
möglich". Es treffen einander Menschen, Organisationen, Initiativen, Netzwerke,
Gewerkschaften und kirchliche VertreterInnen, die nicht nur der Globalisierung
durch transnationale Konzerne und den darin inbegriffenen Kriegen kritisch und
differenziert gegenüberstehen sondern konstruktiv nach wirtschafts-, umwelt- und
sozialpolitischen Alternativen suchen. Das Sozialforum ist ein Raum, in dem über
Bestandsaufnahme und Analyse, durch Entwicklung von Alternativen der Weg zur
Vernetzung und zur Aktion gefunden wird.

> > > > Synopsis: The 12hr-ISBN-JPEG Project began December 30, 1994. A
`round-the-clock posting of sequenced hypermodern imagery from Brad Brace.
The hypermodern minimizes the familiar, the known, the recognizable; it
suspends identity, relations and history. This discourse, far from
determining the locus in which it speaks, is avoiding the ground on which
it could find support. It is trying to operate a decentering that leaves
no privilege to any center.


                       The 12-hour ISBN JPEG Project
                       -----------------------------
                          began December 30, 1994


  Pointless Hypermodern Imagery... posted/mailed every 12 hours... a
spectral, trajective alignment for the 00`s! A continuum of minimalist
masks in the face of catastrophe; conjuring up transformative metaphors
for the everyday... A poetic reversibility of exclusive events...

        A post-rhetorical, continuous, apparently random sequence of
imagery...  genuine gritty, greyscale...  corruptable, compact,
collectable and compelling convergence. The voluptuousness of the grey
imminence: the art of making the other disappear. Continual visual impact;
an optical drumming, sculpted in duration, on the endless present of the
Net.

  An extension of the printed ISBN-Book (0-9690745) series... critically
unassimilable... imagery is gradually acquired, selected and re-sequenced
over time...  ineluctable, vertiginous connections. The 12hr dialtone...

                     [ see ftp.idiom.com/users/bbrace/netcom/books.txt ]

KEYWORDS: >> Disconnected, disjunctive, distended, de-centered,
   de-composed, ambiguous, augmented, ambilavent, homogeneous, reckless...
>> Multi-faceted, oblique, obsessive, obscure, obdurate...
>> Promulgated, personal, permeable, prolonged, polymorphous, provocative,
   poetic, plural, perverse, potent, prophetic, pathological, pointless...
>> Emergent, evolving, eccentric, eclectic, egregious, exciting,
   entertaining, evasive, entropic, erotic, entrancing, enduring,
   expansive...

        Every 12 hours, another!...  view them, re-post `em, save `em,
trade `em, print `em, even publish them...

~ This interminable, relentless sequence of imagery began in earnest on
December 30, 1994. The basic structure of the project has been over
twenty-four years in the making. While the specific sequence of
photographs has been presently orchestrated for more than 12 years` worth
of 12-hour postings, I will undoubtedly be tempted to tweak the ongoing
publication with additional new interjected imagery. Each 12-hour posting
is like the turning of a page; providing ample time for reflection,
interruption, and assimilation.

~ The sites listed above also contain information on other cultural
projects and sources.

still exist for financially assisting the publication of editions of large
(33x46") prints; perhaps (Iris giclees) inkjet duotones or extended-black

Version 6.0 of Violence Online Festival

on occasion of the participation in
"1st New Media Art Festival Chiang Mai (Thailand)
4-15 April 2003

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
***********************************

summary:
Violence Online Festival is
a New Media art project
reflecting the phenomenon of "Violence",
curated, organized and created in Flash by
Agricola de Cologne, curator and media artist operating
from Cologne/Germany. As an ongoing project
Violence Online Festival is developed for being
presented in future in the framework of physical and
virtual media festivals and exhibitions.
For each event a new project version will be created
adjusted to the actual needs
including additions of new artists/works
and other changes.

***********************************
Version 6.0 of Violence Online Festival
includes some major changes and
works of following new artists:

Jo-Anne Green and Helen Thorington (USA),
Maria Tjader Knight (Finland/Belgium)

***********************************

introduction:
The human character contains both a light and a dark side, good and bad,
individually manifested. Deeply rooted is a dark-sided
element:  Violence.
In happy surroundings, it becomes hardly visible and in
less happy surroundings - either of a physical, psychological,
environmental, ideological, economic or political nature  -
nearly automatically a kind of survival
strategy with all the known consequences we see
manifested in conflicts on a small or large scale.
Violence is present anywhere, hidden or sleeping,
hesitating, waiting or in action, starting from simple
mobbing via verbalor physical attacks, the bandwidth has no end.

Nowadays, globalization, social injustice,
unemployment, increasing wealth on one side and
on the opposite increasing poverty (without mentioning some
causes) produce a climate where violence has a fertile
soil.  From the attack on 9/11 in the USA, people from
the Western civilization became painfully aware that
security of any kind is a mere illusion; not only the
internal, but also the external enemy is present anywhere.

Artists are said to be the consciousness of a nation or society
as they reflect the actual state of the psychological and physical
environment.
When this state is penetrated by violence, nobody is surprised that
violence becomes a universal subject for artistic reflection, the difference
may
only be the view on it and its perception depending on
the respective cultural background.

'Art and violence both seem to stem from the abstract: that place beyond
logic, the realm of the emotion. When they intersect we are simultaneously
repelled and attracted, frightened and excited. Historically this meeting
has been wrought with complexity, and as cultural violence in every society
increases, we are prevented by paranoia, censorship and ethical demands from
asking, and sometimes even posing, some of the most important questions
violence and art together and separately produce: how is violence
represented, and what or how much of it do we need to resist the cultivation
of fear and the encouragement of dependency? Is violence a tool, a process
or a result? When are artistic portrayals of violence justifiable? As
intellectual exercise, ritual, or spiritual enhancement? For other purposes?
Or are they never justifiable? Is violence in art an action, reaction, or
reflection? '  (quotation: festival statement).

How different the results of an artistic reflection can be is
shown through the Violence Online Festival, a New Media
online exhibition project curated and organized
as an individual event by Agricola de Cologne
including more than 150 artists from
30 countries presenting their work. It forms a
dynamic collaborative art work presenting very
individual visions and use of media.

The relevance of violence becomes visible also through
the high quality standard of  all the included works. Each
of them represents another aspect of violence - caught
in textual poetry, running as a video or embedded in an
interactive environment of a net-based art work.

In reaction to the key role (mass) media plays by displaying and even
promoting
violence, a new environment (interface) has been created for Violence
Online Festival, which houses and hosts the art works within a virtual media
company named "Violence Media Incorporated".
By dividing the company into different departments (eg.
"Violence for Happiness" , "Violence Marketing" or "Violence Broadcasting"),
it becomes clear that their meaning
has a rather ironic or sarcastic character, which gives
the embedded art works a new meaning.

While surfing through this environment, the visitor is forced to ask and
give answers,  and becomes slowly a part of this network of art through his
reflections and changes of perception.

Can anyone point me to information on the history of copyright and the web? Has copyright always been applicable to the web? Has it evolved along with the commercialization of the web? Was there a time in the history of the web when copyright was considered "problematic"?

Subject: Call for URLs || earational, 5 april 2003

Subject: Call for URLs for ZNC browser

Explanation: ZNC browser allows it's user to create audio/ visual
compositions from URLs. What ZNC browser in fact does is translate the
html or php language of a webpage into tones and colors. So every
webpage gives a unique compostion. After the second version of ZNC
browser was released some people started spontaneously to create html
pages that were meant to be played with ZNC browser. I now want to
pursue this idea further and want to invite everybody that is
interested to submit html pages that are especially made for ZNC
browser. Of course pages that already exist and work well are also
welcome. 

Earational: a selection URLS submitted before 4 april will be used
for a performance with ZNC browser at the soundart festival
earational, Den Bosch, The Netherlands.

Recording: An audiorecording of the performance with ZNC browser
at earational is planned to be available very soon after the
performance. All used urls will be credited and it's creators will
informed.

The urls submitted to the ZNC url page will also stay available after
the earational festival as demo or example urls. Also the submitted
urls will be used as standard presets in the next version of ZNC
browser. 
Of course everybody who submits urls will be credited, so make sure
that the url(s) and information that is submitted are correct.
Formats with the following extensions can be used by ZNC browser: htm,
html, asp, jsp, php, pl, cgi, txt.

URL submit page: http://znc.ctrlaltdel.org/urls/index.php

URL ZNC brower 2.0 (MAC OSX or Windows): http://znc.ctrlaltdel.org/

using people's mobiles and phones::

/The project 1-800-178968 is about a toll-free number.
Which will try to establish with people
an obsessive and addictive relationship.
Calling them back.
Even after a few weeks.
Pleading with them to come back.

/1-800-178968 is a project of an invasive nature,
capable of insinuating itself into the homes and mobile phones of the people
contacted,
violating their privacy, and becoming a part of their daily lives...
