Hinweis auf eine gemeinsame Veranstaltung der Heinrich Böll Stiftung  
(Referat Medienpolitik) und des Netzwerks Neue Medien

Thema: Zwischen War-Blogs und Informationsministerium. Medien und  
öffentliche Wahrnehmung nach dem Irak-Krieg.

Termin: Do, 22.5., 19 Uhr, Galerie der Heinrich Böll Stiftung, Hackesche  
Höfe, Berlin

Fragestellung: Kriege katalysieren oft mediale und technische  
Entwicklungen. Ziel der Diskussion ist es, aufzuarbeiten, wie sich das  
Verhältnis von Krieg, Medien und öffentlicher Wahrnehmung mit dem Irak- 
Krieg verschoben hat. Mehrere Beobachtungen bilden dabei die Eckpunkte  
der Debatte: die enge Verbindung von Militär und Unterhaltungsindustrie  
im Konzept des "eingebetteten Berichterstatters", die sich wechselseitig  
aufschaukelnden Inszenierungen des irakischen Informationsministers und  
der USA, aber auch die erstaunlich kritische und selbstreflexive  
Diskussion in den Medien über Medienberichterstattung, die zunehmende  
Bedeutung von Al-Jazerra und schließlich die Tatsache, dass sich mit dem  
erwachsen gewordenen Internet erstmals ein globaler alternativer Zugang  
zu unzensierten Informationen angeboten hat.

Auf dem Podium diskutieren:
- - Mira Beham (Publizistin, Wahrheitskommission Belgrad)
- - Markus Deggerich (berichtete für SPIEGEL online aus dem Irak)
- - Stefan Krempl (Journalist und Medienwissenschaftler)
- - Clemens Lerche (Redaktionsleiter Berlin politik-digital)
- - Hendrik Zörner (Deutscher Journalistenverband, Hauptstadtbüro)

Moderation: Till Westermayer, Netzwerk Neue Medien.

Subject: ATTACK!  Art and War in the Media Age

Art and War in the Media Age / Kunst und Krieg in den Zeiten der Medien


opening: May 22th, 2003, 7 pm
May 23th - September 21th, 2003

War is the major social issue that has pushed all others to the side 
since shortly after the turn of the millennium. Those who believed that 
more peaceful times would follow the end of the Cold War were forced to 
learn a lesson: War remains the father of all things, even though its 
appearance, its methods, its aims and its language of imagery are 
constantly changing.

Interzone #0


De Balie / Friday May 30 / Saturday May 31

Interzone is a new series of programs that De Balie intends to 
develop for the new program season, devoted to interdisciplinary 
explorations across the confines of existing artistic disciplines, in 
the cross-over areas of experimental cinema, media art, sound art and 

For this zero-edition of Interzone we have brought artists together 
who make explicit use of documentary materials in their work, while 
they have no intention to create an actual documentary. Taking this 
approach, it becomes inescapable that the artist has to articulate a 
different position towards the documentary materials, their origins 
and their context. How is this position defined? Why not rather make 
a straight documentary? What is the influence of the original 
material on the aesthetics of the work and the practice of the artist?

The entire program can also be followed live via the internet at:


Friday May 30 & Saturday May 31 Grote Zaal

Walk-in Presentation from 13.00 hrs:

SÜDOSTPASSAGE (Southeast Passage. A journey to new Blank Spots on the Map)
Ulrike Ottinger
Ger, 2002, 364', digibeta, eng. subtitles

This (very) long documentary was originally created for the eleventh 
edition of the Documenta (2002), the mayor contemporary art 
exhibition organised every 5 years in Kassel, Germany. Ottinger is an 
acclaimed and highly idiosyncratic feminist fiction film director. 
For this project she pursued an almost ethnographic methodology. From 
her home town Berlin she made numerous journeys to travels to the 
former 'East'. These journeys took her amongst others to Odessa and 
Istanbul, but also to many unknown and little cared about places in 
the country-side. The film, more than 6 hours in length, can be seen 
as a personal travel diary.

George Legrady - An Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War
(Hungary, 1994)

In Legrady's work two different forms of writing history collide: 
Legrady's personal history as an émigré out of Hungary after the 
popular uprising of 1956 was crushed by Soviet army forces, is 
confronted with the official writing of history of the Cold War. 
Legrady subverts the official hierarchical construction of history. 
 From personal memorabilia, propaganda materials, films, and sound 
recordings he creates a personal anecdoted archive, a museum for his 
personal history.


Chris Marker - Immemory One
(France, 1997)

Marker engages the viewer in a subtle play. He presents an extensive 
archive of his personal life, his relationship to the things, the 
world (comparable to Legrady). This impression turns out to be 
misleading, however. Marker continuously moves between his actual 
personal history and a fictional existence; memories of events he was 
never part of, while making it apparent that they are truly his 
own.... The treacherous character of memory seems to be the starting 
point for his kaleidoscopic self-image. Marker seems to resist any 
authoritarian information-order and the illusion of universal history.



Friday May 30 / Grote Zaal / 20.30 hrs:

Jon Wozencroft & Chris Watson "Weather Report"

Jon Wozencroft, founder of the Touch-label, graphic designer and 
video artist will present  video works that accompany two new 
soundscapes by Chris Watson.

Chris Watson makes sound recordings of rare animal species, natural 
phenomena and specific locations. Beside his work for a.o. the BBC, 
Watson, who in the past was involved with Cabaret Voltaire and the 
Hafler Trio, nowadays also produces works in the genre of 
"soundscapes". "Ol-Olool-O" is the name of a mountain range in the 
west of Kenya, which because of its position has a mayor influence on 
the climate conditions and thus on the animal life and the local 
population. The work, produced only with field recordings, is 
nonetheless marked by an exceptional dramatic tension.

"Vatnajökull" is named after the Vatnajökull-glacier in Iceland. 
Watson follows the journey of the ice to the sea and offers a 'view' 
into the various animal colonies and habitats on its way.

With solemn imagery, largely consisting of nature footage, Wozencroft 
creates a visual pendant of Watson's compositions.



Friday May 30 / Kleine Zaal / 22.00 hrs

Péter Forgács
Ned., 1998, 60', betacam, 60', eng. subtitles
The Hungarian  film maker Péter Forgács (Budapest, 1950) is one of 
the most prominent representatives of the so-called found footage 
film makers. In the travel report The Danube Exodus Forgács documents 
the Jewish exodus out of Hungary at the beginning of World War II.

Péter Forgács
Ned., 1999, betacam, 60', eng.ond.
In ANGELOS' FILM Forgács uses amateur movies of the Greek marine 
officer and patrician Angelos Papanastassiou, who filmed the 
atrocities of the nazi's in his country, often while endangering his 
own life in the process


Saturday May 31 / Grote Zaal

Walk-in Presentation from 13.00 hrs:

Ulrike Ottinger - Süd-Ost Passage

George Legrady - An Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War

Chris Marker - Immemory One

(descriptions: see above)


Saturday May 31 / Salon / 16.00 hrs:

Discussion with participating artists in Interzone about the 
relationship between the documentary source material they use and the 
role these materials play in the final work of art.

John Wozencroft
Gregor Asch (DJ Olive)
John Oswald

Chair: to be confirmed

Language: English


Saturday May 31 / Grote Zaal / 20.30 hrs

John Oswald "Plexure", "Dab", and "Braziliaires"

Plunderphonics is the name Oswald gives to his music. His composition 
"Dab" is constructed from hundreds of sound fragments of Michael 
Jackson's "I'm Bad". The statement is that compositions that consists 
entirely of samples can be highly original works in their own right, 
there should be no restrictions to the use of samples. This position 
has made Oswald into a controversial composer and a spokesperson for 
the No Copyright movement.
"Plexure" is a staccato of oh's, ah's and yeah's. A flow of sound 
libraries of the last 30 years of popmusic history. "Braziliaires" is 
a radiophonic diary of a journey to Brasil, and deals provocatively 
with the relationships between cultures. In contradiction to the 
soundscapes almost all sounds are imitations of the original recorded 
sound materials.


Saturday May 31 / Grote Zaal / 22.00 hrs

DJ Olive "Composition #11" and "Perpetual Soundcheck"

DJ Olive is a turntablist, a composer and musician, who uses the 
turntable as his instrument. He calls his compositions Vinyl Scores. 
DJ Olive makes collections of recordings and stores these sound 
fragments on LP's as if they were his music scores.
As a DJ he creates open compositions by continuously making new 
combinations between archived sounds.

In "Composition #11", a palette of sounds of his immediate living 
environment, DJ Olive attempts to arrive at a personal 
interpretation. "Perpetual Soundcheck" takes the listener to the 
urban metropolis of New York; ranging from the pulsating urban sounds 
to a loud siesta.



Saturday May 31 / Kleine Zaal / 22.00 hrs

Chris Petit, Iain Sinclair
GB, 2002, 76', betacam, eng spoken No subtitles

A hallucinating essay-film where the London ring-way (the M25) is the 
starting point for a delirious multitude of poetic and intellectual 
associations. The basis for the film was the book by the same title 
by Ian Sinclair, in which the writer tells about his journey on foot 
along the almost 200 kilometres long road and the multitude of 
observations and connections that emerged during the long march. 
Chris Petit's intention was not to make a film about this march, but 
to start from the trance-like state that the average car driver can 
be put in by the endless car drives along such a road.

3.) SUBMISSION GUIDELINES <http://www.iamas.ac.jp/unesco_award/e/guide.html>

· The award focuses on supporting young, talented people involved in 
media art.

· The age limit for submitting artists is 35 years.

· The award will be given to project proposals, not to finished artworks.

· Project proposals should relate to the theme of the award.

· The main award winner's project proposal will be carried out at IAMAS 
during a special artist-in-residence period provided by IAMAS.

· We especially encourage submissions by artists from developing countries.


In our increasingly diverse societies, it is essential to ensure 
harmonious interaction among people and groups with plural, varied and 
dynamic cultural identities as well as their willingness to live 
together" (UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity, 2 
November 2001)

But how does technology shape cultural identity and how has it changed 
the way we live together? Can digital technology promote dialogue 
between people from different cultures, creating a better, fairer and 
more peaceful world where cultural diversity and tolerance prevail? And 
how can an artist's vision and sensibility reflect and contribute to 
cultural diversity and digital pluralism?

These are the questions we want to address through the "Digital 
Pluralism - UNESCO Digital Arts Award 2003 at IAMAS". We encourage 
artists to reflect on the theme of cultural diversity, digital pluralism 
and social interaction, and to send project proposals for a media 
artwork that considers these topics and that can be realised during a 
6-month artist-in-residence period at the Institute of Advanced Media 
Arts and Sciences (IAMAS) in Gifu, Japan.

Água: Ouro Azul 

Um elemento necessário para a vida se transformou em um NEGÓCIO. No Brasil, como em muitos países do mundo, a água já não é mais de quem habita este solo, mas das grandes empresas estatais e privadas. Essas empresas estão ocupando a gestão da água potável e da água mineral em todo planeta, e por outro lado, ganhando muito dinheiro. 

Todos temos direito à usufruir dos recursos naturais para assegurar nosso direito a vida, solidariamente aos demais seres e espécies, viventes que povoam o planeta e com as futuras gerações. A gestão da água deve estar nas mão de cada um de nós e se trabalharmos de forma individual e coletiva, poderemos concretizar essa utopia. 

Convidamos à enviar suas obras sobre o tema "Água: Ouro Azul". 

Técnica Livre: tamanho A4 (21 x 30 cm) máximo, podendo ser enviadas até dia 21 de julho de 2003. 

As obras levarão o nome do autor, endereço, telefone e e-mail. 

Local de entrega: "Casa do Mar" – Rua Doutor Zuquim, 564. Cep: 02035-020. São Paulo-SP Brasil 

Abertura da mostra: 01 de agosto de 2003, a partir das 19:00 horas, na "Casa do Mar". 

Com a presença da artista plástica argentina Alicia Zarate, uma das organizadoras da mesma mostra na FLA – Federação Libertária Argentina, em setembro de 2001.

Un elemento necesario para la vida se transformó en un NEGOCIO. En Brasil , como en muchos otros países del mundo, el agua ya no es más de quienes habitamos este suelo, sino de multinacionales. Esas empresas se están ocupando de la gestión del agua potable y del agua mineral en todo el planeta, lo cual, por supuesto, les brinda cuantiosas ganancias. Todos tenemos derecho a acceder a los recursos naturales para asegurar nuestro derecho a la vida, solidariamente con los demás seres y especies vivientes que pueblan el planeta y con las futuras generaciones. La gestión del agua debe estar en manos de cada uno de nosotros y si trabajamos en forma individual y colectiva podremos concretar esta utopía. 


The fight for the control and ownership of water will be the next goldrush. Every creature has the natural right to natural resources in order to assure the right to live but multinationals and corporations see it only as a tool for more profits, exploitation and domination. The management of water must be in the hands ol local people everywhere. This is part of the new battles against globalizaton.

En estos tiempos en que la vida y la comunicación parecerían transcurrir solamente por una pantalla, cuando la mayoría está sumida en la desesperanza, el Arte Correo se presenta como instrumento de estímulo de nuestro potencial creativo y de comunicación entre los seres humanos. En Arte Correo participa quien quiera hacerlo. No hay selección, ni jurados, no se comercializa la obra y el correo se utiliza como medio de envío.

Están todos invitados. 

WATER: BLUE GOLD In times when life and communication seem to happen only on a screen, when most are steeped in hopelessness, MAIL ART becomes the instrument to stimulate our creative potential and for communication between human beings. In MAIL ART anyone who wants to can participate. There is no selection committee, works are not bought or sold and the works are sent by mail. The WATER PROJECT aims to create a space for re-thinking, a new area of interaction between art, the sciences, the environment and the people involved now and in the future. WATER will be our legacy to our children and their descendants. The quality of water is inextricably related to the quality of life. GOOD WATER QUALITY=GOOD QUALITY OF LIFE BAD WATER QUALITY=BAD QUALITY OF LIFE NO WATER=NO LIFE The accesability of good quality water must be democratic. We must not leave life-giving water in the hands of the market. If this continues to happen, water will be only for ! those who can buy it, thus co!
ndemning to illness and despair those who cannot pay the market price

The Speakers

The Peruvian Congressman,* *

*Dr. Edgar Villanueva Nuuez*

has recently become somewhat of a celebrity in the Free Software and Open
Source communities as a result of his legislative efforts
<http://www.gnu.org.pe/proleyap.html> favouring free software and his highly
publicized <http://www.linuxjournal.com//article.php?sid=6099>, well
informed and eloquent response
<http://www.aful.org/politique/perou/english/rescon_en.html> to a Peruvian
Microsoft executive's letter

*Niranjan Rajani *

is the main author of the research "Significance of Free/Libre Open-Source
Software for Developing Countries".

*Cesar Brod* <http://brod.univates.br/>

is presently the IT Manager in Univates University
<http://www.univates.br/>, and one of the coordinators of the Free Software
Project of the State of Rio Grande do Sul and a member of the Linux Around
the World initiative. Cesar Brod got first involved with GNU/Linux in 1993
when he needed a "Unix" that he could use in his computer in order to
emulate problems he was having in a System V based machine.

*Fredrick Noronha*

Goa (India)-based journalist, who is co-founder of Bytes For All
<http://www.bytesforall.org/> - a collaborative venture studying the use of
IT and Internet for development in South Asia, and also founder member of
India-Linux Users Group-Goa.

*Nico Coetzee*

a full time Open Source developer in South Africa, is always tinkering with
some obscure Open Source code, trying to make life a bit easier. It all
started in 1995, just shortly after the official launch of Windows 95. Since
then he has started to focus on Perl development, because "it's simply the
most flexible and easy to learn language out there...". In his research
capacity, he looked at the Open Source movement in Africa, as well as what
needs to change (from his perspective) in order for Africa to become a IT
world player.
