:: fibrepower ::
:: Currents in Australasian New Media Research and Internet Culture ::

July 11, 12, 13th:::Brisbane::Powerhouse::::::::

:: fibreculture :: in association with critical new media studies sections
in universities across Brisbane, invites you to a meeting in July 2003 on
theory, policy, practice, and education in New Media and the Internet. The
meeting, :: fibrepower :: Currents in Australian Internet Research and
Culture will bring together practitioners in the academy and industry from
around Australia and New Zealand to participate in critically informed
debates about new media and its cultures. It follows the ANZCA03
conference (see http://www.bgsb.qut.edu.au/conferences/ANZCA03/index.html
- 9-11 July at QUT Gardens Point Campus, Brisbane).

:: Theme of the 2003 Fibreculture Meeting :: fibrepower ::

In academic and popular discourses, new media, the Internet, and 'virtual
reality' are often described as just this - a 'virtual' reality, an Other,
a 'cyberspace' which is somehow disconnected from the 'real' and secondary
to 'life' experiences and issues. It is rarely accepted in the dominant
Internet discourses of commercial and social culture that the truth is
vastly different. New media and networked technologies currently pervade
our lives and connect us ever more closely and solidly as citizens of
networked society.

If information and knowledge, in the new economy, are 'power', then the
copper, optical, or wireless fibres spanning the networks are conduits for
this power; they are full of power, and powerful. Their daily influence
and the network's influence on human society is real and tangible.
::fibreculture:: wants to address this continued insistence on
conceptualising networked life and Internet cultures as a separate,
second- rate or exotic reality, a dichotomy which obscures fact and
prevents any in-depth engagement with and critique of the power of 'fibre'
over and in our everyday lives.

Set in a literal and figurative locus of power from the previous,
industrial, era, the :: fibrepower :: meeting will engage with a range of
themes that disclose the unseen power of fibre-culture in the
informational age. Outcomes of this event will include a high profile
public forum, an online publication of refereed articles, and deeper
connections between new media industries, the academy and others. The
meeting will be held at the Brisbane Powerhouse from July 11-13, 2003.

(For reports from past fibreculture meetings and updates on fibreculture
2003, please see the Website at http://www.fibreculture.org/.)

Special Public Discussion Forum:

- -- Friday night (from 8 p.m.; registration from 7 p.m.)
:: Fibrepower in the Regions
:: Public Discussion Headed by Gerard Goggin
:: Involving Guest Speakers, Panellists, Q&A and Other Interaction

In Australasia regional and rural areas continue to miss out on reliable
and fast access to the global networks. This contributes significantly to
the growing digital divide, and carries important implications for public
and private policy. How can we increase the fibrepower of the regions, and
what are current examples of best practice?

Gerard Goggin (g.goggin {AT} uq.edu.au) is a postdoctoral research fellow in
the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, University of Queensland. He
is writing a book entitled *Networked Imaginings: A Cultural History of
Australian Internet*, and has long had an interest in rural and regional
internet and telecommunications (not least from living in the country

:: Introduction to the Fibreculture List :: Open Session, M/C
Collaboration, fc Webjournal, and other activities :: Geert Lovink, David

:: Digital Literacies :: New Media Arts Exhibition
:: Curated by Jane Turner and Linda Carroli

In conjunction with the conference, fibreculture and fAf are offering an
online gallery space set up as an opportunity for exploration by artists to

Please forward to others who might be interested


International Festival for Tactical Media
Amsterdam, 11 - 14 September 2003


The Next 5 Minutes is a festival that brings together art,
campaigns, experiments in media, technology, and
transcultural politics. The fourth edition of the festival is
the result of a collaborative effort of a variety
of organisations, initiatives and individuals dispersed

We are looking for films, videotapes, dvd's and cd¹s.
We are interested in media, created with a specific social,
cultural or political agenda. Media of crisis, criticism and
opposition. Media that provide an antidote to the world
as we see it represented in mainstream media and
current geopolitics.

The productions that you will send to us will become part
of the so-called media-library, which can be accessed
by any participant during the festival.
Afterwards they will become part of the Next 5 Minutes
Visual Archive, which is kept at the International Institute
for Social History in Amsterdam.

Contributions can be selected for special screenings  at
the festival, for broadcasting on local cable tv and for
broadband internet distribution, in which case we will ask
your specific permission. You will receive a programme
book in which the dates and spaces of these special
screenings will be listed.

You will also receive the festival reader and the
media-library catalogue.

We will accept contributions on all carriers (SVHS, Betacam,
cd-rom, miniDV, dvd, pal/ntsc/secam, 16mm, 35mm, etc.
VHS welcome but not preferred). Any length, any language.

Further details and entry form:  http://www.n5m.org

Sunday, 22 June, 2003 - 12 a.m. - 12 p.m. (10:00 - 8:00 GMT)

on air - on line - on site

on air: Juniradio, Berlin, 104.1 FM
on line: http://kunstradio.at, http://www.juniradio.net
on site: AROMAT, Margaretenstrasse 52, A-1040 Vienna, http://arom.at

alien productions, Tina Bepperling, Markus Hammer, Marlene Haring, Ursula
Hummel, Bernhard Loibner, Stefan Lugbauer, Marianne Maderna, Jörg
Piringer, Klaus Taschler, Uli Troyer, Eva Wohlgemuth a.o.

On Sunday, June 22nd, from midday to midnight, OE1 Kunstradio will send a
12-hour-contribution for Juniradio dealing with the topics kitchen, radio,
dining, cooking. Juniradio (on air in Berlin from June 8 to 30 on the
frequency 104.1 FM) is a pilot project to help establish a lasting free
and open radio in Berlin.

The radio and streaming event will take place at the soup-kitchen-bar
AROMAT in Vienna. On site, visitors will hear and see live performances by
invited artists. They have also been asked to select pieces from the
Kunstradio Archive and so they will create a highly individual acoustic
cross section from 15 years of radio art on Kunstradio - Radiokunst.
Sounds and images from the performances - which include cross-reading
recipes, slogan searching in alphabet soup and tea-time rituals - are sent
to Berlin via the internet where the audio stream will go on air an can be
listened to on Juniradio.

Juniradio is a free and open radio that will broadcast from June 8 until
June 30 2003, 24 hours per day, on 104.1 FM in Berlin and as a live stream
on the internet. Juniradio is a free radio since it lacks the commercial
or institutional constraints that, in Berlin and elsewhere, prevent almost
anything unforseeable from happening on the radio, and it is an open radio
since it will not be produced by editors, professionals or experts, but by
a wide network of local and international groups, initiatives and

Juniradio will be a political radio as well, since it addresses a certain
social imagination: the desire and the demand for a permanent free and
open radio in Berlin that would not emerge as a speculation about a
defined market niche or target group, but as a bet on real, meaningful and
productive connections. Connections between the artistic, political, or
whatever work of the participants, as well as, finally, connections
between the production and the consumption of radio, and between the radio
program and the life of the people.

60 min /2002 / english version
After years of researching the reform movement, the art professor has been
drawn deeper and deeper into the swamp of the light and ark sides of the
early avantgarde movements, the nudist culture, and the free scouts
movement. Brilliant and fast, Dillemuth changes roles and costumes, striving
through places and history of the life reform experiments. Those movements
aimed at the fusion of life and art. Before sinking into hippiesk and
nazi-esoteric harmony, the artist saves himself by hard cuts, sharp irony
and rock performances at the acoustic guitar...

PAINT IT BLACK: anarchism, urban uprising and the
mainstream news media
by Jessica Lawless

This film is a response to the mainstream media's
portrayal of anarchists and anarchism since the
international anti-corporate globalization protests
that captured media attention during the demonstations
against the WTO meeting in Seattle, 1999.

Author's Note: This film serves as a American
counter-balance to Oliver Ressler's informative
documentary. And we are lucky enough to have the
filmmaker Jessica Lawless in the house!

Palestine-Israel. The artist, curators and activists on this panel
will reflect on their own work in relation to the questions with
which we began our project. A just and viable peace requires a
commitment to co-labouring across divides. Our contention is that
such a co-labouring necessitates ethically responsible practices of
solidarity. We envision this moment as an opportunity to work through
these issues critically.

Subject: Women on Waves Exhibition at Mediamatic Amsterdam

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" ; format="flowed"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable



=46rom 13th July to 24th August inclusive, Mediamatic Supermarkt 
Amsterdam is presenting a unique exhibition by Women on Waves, with 
new installations by Willem Velthoven, the WoW mobile abortion clinic 
by Atelier van Lieshout and pictures of the most recent expedition 
with the abortion boat, which by then will just have been completed.


The projects initiated by Women on Waves transcend boundaries; not 
only between countries but also between different professional 
domains such as law, medicine, seafaring, art and literature.
One important aim of Women on Waves is to create public awareness. In 
addition to the campaigns, visual art and new media but also fashion 
and film are important means. After the collaboration with AvL, WoW, 
together with Willem Velthoven, created a number of interactive 
installations and a clothing project. Last Friday, these 
installations had their premi=E8re at the first Biennale of 
Thessaloniki. The Biennale of Thessaloniki was devised by Rosa 
Martinez (Spain) and Harald Szeemann (Switzerland) and until 15th 
September, in addition to Women on Waves, the Biennale is presenting 
work by Tracey Emin, Aernout Mik, Maurizio Cattelan, Mona Hatoum , 
Christan Boltanski and Marisa Merz, among others.
The mobile clinic, "A-Portable", is regarded as a key work by Atelier 
van Lieshout and was previously presented at the Biennale of Venice 
(2001) and at AvL Ville (2002) in Rotterdam.
This is the first major exhibition about Women on Waves in the Netherlands.


At the opening of the exhibition, on Saturday 12th July at 5 p.m., 
the "A-portable" will be installed on a specially-built construction 
in front of the entrance to the Mediamatic Supermarkt. During the 
opening, the crew and the medical staff of Women on Waves will be 

The Installations

As well as the "A-Portable", we are presenting 4 new installations by 
Willem Velthoven: "Portrait Collector", "Sea", "I had an Abortion", 
"Every 6 Minutes" and an as-yet unnamed interactive narrative by a 
group of students from the Universit=E4t der K=FCnste, Berlin.

"Portrait Collector" is a network of Internet kiosks in which people 
who have had an abortion can photograph themselves. The portraits are 
compiled on a central web-server in Amsterdam on which, over the 
years, a very large collection will come into being. The purpose of 
this network is to make it clear, in an expressive manner, that 
abortion occurs much more often than is imagined.
According to the WHO, a woman has on average 1.5 abortions during her 
life. Annually, 55,000,000 abortions take place, of which 20,000,000 
are illegal and unsafe. And every year, 80,000 women die a pointless 
death from complications arising from these illegal abortions. Since 
these figures are unknown, people think that abortion is an 
exceptional occurrence. Thus it remains easy to criminalise abortion 
and to keep it illegal in many countries. For that matter, in 
countries in which abortion is illegal, just as many abortions take 
place, on average, as in the rest of the world.

"I had an Abortion" is an installation consisting of vests on wire 
coat-hangers which bear the text "I had an abortion" in all European 
languages. They symbolise the abundance of abortions and the shame 
connected with abortion, legal or illegal. In addition to these 
undergarments, in the autumn a line of cheerful T-shirts will be 
brought out, which openly present the same text. The wire coat-hanger 
(not the knitting needle), is the most frequently used - and very 
dangerous - instrument for the inducement of an improvised abortion.

"Every 6 minutes" is a simple installation that consists of the text 
"Every 6 minutes, a woman dies from an illegal abortion" and a red 
lamp that lights up for every dying woman. After the summer, WoW will 
bring into use a server which, corrected to the times of day, will 
send out over the Internet the rhythm of deaths from illegal 
abortions. Every computer connected to the Internet can receive this 
pulse and display the rhythm. Thus there will arise a global monument 
to the women who meet their deaths as a consequence of the repression 
of their sexual autonomy.

"Sea" is an interactive narrative composed from shots of the sea 
taken during WoW's first expedition to Ireland and the voices of 
Irish women asking for help and information. A poetic work which, in 
its simplicity, makes the need of Irish women very apparent.

About Women on Waves

Women on Waves is a non-profit organisation which sets itself the 
objective of promoting the human rights of the woman and of 
preventing unwanted pregnancies and unsafe, illegal abortions. One of 
the foundation's best-known projects is the Abortion boat. Through 
cunning use of maritime law, just outside the 12-mile zones of 
countries where abortion is forbidden women can be helped with 
information and with actual abortions. These actions are legal 
according to Dutch law and according to international Maritime law, 
which is recognised by the countries that are visited. The ship sails 
under the Dutch flag, and abortions are provided by a team of Dutch 
medical practitioners on Dutch "territory". For the performance of 
the so-called medicinal (suction) curettage, official permission from 
the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sports (VWS) has been granted 
since 28th June 2002.
Thus, women are actively assisted and local organisations are 
supported and inspired in their struggle for the legalisation of 
abortion. You will find more information on 
http://www.womenonwaves.org. For press information about the 
activities of WoW, please refer to the contact addresses on this

AvL is the organisation around visual artist Joep van Lieshout. This 
organisation specialises in the creation of sculptures and 
installations which have in common the fact that they symbolise and 
give practical support to autonomy. You will find more information on

T h e   S t a t e   o f   t h e   R e a l

An Interdisciplinary Conference

Glasgow School of Art, UK

21-22 November 2003

Keynote Speakers: 
Prof. Linda Nochlin, New York University
Prof. Slavoj Zizek, University of Ljubljana

"How real can you get?"
This two-day conference will debate the subject of Œthe real¹ in aesthetic
philosophy, criticism and practice.

"When is representation not real?"
Recent years have seen notions of reality discussed in the open. What
relationship do current views developed by this discourse have with those
tenets of realism and representation that once provided the foundation for
aesthetic study? What are the philosophical consequences of the introduction
of technologies that increasingly blur the boundaries between art and
popular culture? What is the effect of aesthetic culture on Realpolitik?
What has happened to the notions of social realism, verisimilitude, and the
imaginary? Are they still relevant, and how have they been changed, if at

"Reclaiming the real."
The organizers are also interested in how notions of reality are affected
by, and continue to affect, aesthetic practice in the fields of art, design,
and media production. With the popularity of haptic technologies, what has
happened to Œreal¹ haptics? How do practitioners and academics view older
technologies in the light of their electronic avatars? With the development
of notions of virtual space, what has happened to our understanding of the
body, the mind, and corporeal space?

The conference will include panels on these issues, and also on Reality TV,
Photography, Museum Studies, Design, Cinema and Urban Space.

June 26 to August 4, 2003, at Gallery 101

Gallery 101 proudly announces 
Jayce Salloum's return to the National Capital region,

"everything and nothing and other works from the ongoing video 
installation,'untitled', 1999-2003"

"everything and nothing", by artist, media arts philosopher, and cultural 
activist Jayce Salloum, is part of an ongoing multi-channel video installation 
that focuses on borders, nationalisms, movements and subjectivities, and the 
conditions of living between polarities of culture,

geography, history and ideology.

Works from this installation were at the heart of the controversy over the 
attempted cancellation of the exhibition, "The Lands Within Me: Expressions by 
Canadian Artists of Arab Origin", which opened at the Canadian Museum of 
Civilization in the fall of 2001. After viewing the tapes in the installation, the 
directors of the museum attempted to "indefinitely

postpone" the exhibition. With a large international public outcry, the 
Museum was forced to open and present the exhibition as originally planned. 
However, the Museum reneged on its commitment to tour this show internationally, and 
has shelved the major bilingual publication it had been preparing to print. 
Now, residents and visitors in the National Capital region will have an 
opportunity to view Salloum's entire, evolving installation in a comfortable and 
relaxed setting at Gallery 101.

Included in this exhibition are the following works:

"everything and nothing", featuring the artist Jayce Salloum and ex-Lebanese 
National Resistance fighter Soha Bechara.

"beauty and the east", which addresses issues of nationalism and the nation 
state, polarities of time, alienation, the refusal and construction of 
political identies, ethno-fascism, the body as object and metaphor, agents, monsters 
and abjectness, subjective affinities, and objective trusts.

"occupied territories: footnotes to the book of setbacks", featuring excerpts 
from two conversations with Abdel Majid Fadl Ali Hassan (in Baddawi Camp), 
and Nameh Hussein Suleiman (in Bourg al Barajinah Camp), two elder Palestinians 
who have been living in refugee camps in Lebanon since 1948.

"(as if) beauty never ends..." composed of visual material and ambient sound 
including orchids blooming and plants growing superimposed over raw footage 
from post-massacre filmings of the 1982 massacre at Sabra and Shatilla refugee 
camps in Lebanon.

"lands", a silent video of landscapes in Eastern Europe.

"clouds", a silent video of cloud formations recorded from airplane windows.

"other", a silent video of intimate, in-between, and domestic night scenes.

Jayce Salloum has been working in installation, photography, mixed media, and 
video since 1975, as well as curating exhibitions, conducting workshops and 
coordinating cultural projects. He has lectured internationally and had 
numerous exhibitions throughout the Americas, Europe, Japan and the Middle East, at 
institutions including The Museum of Modern Art (New York), The National 
Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), YYZ (Toronto), Hara Museum of Contemporary Art (Japan), 
Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume (Paris), The Institute du Monde Arabe 
(Paris), Rotterdam International Film Festival, and Théatre de Beyrouth.

Salloum will give a lecture about his work on Thursday, June 26, at 5:30 PM, 
directly before the opening. The exhibition opens at 7 PM. Everyone is invited 
to attend.

17 juin 2003

La Galerie 101 a l'immense plaisir d'annoncer le retour de Jayce Salloum

dans la région de la capitale nationale avec :

"everything and nothing and other works from the ongoing video installation,

'untitled', 1999-2003"

« tout et rien et autres |uvres tirés de l'installation vidéo continue,

"sans titre", 1999-2003 »

du 26 juin au 4 août 2003, à la Galerie 101


« tout et rien », de l'artiste, philosophe des arts médiatiques et militant

culturel, Jayce Salloum, fait partie d'une installation vidéo continue

multi-canaux qui met l'accent sur les frontières, les nationalismes, les

mouvements et subjectivités ainsi que les sur les états de vie entre des

extrêmes de culture, de géographie, d'histoire et d'idéologie.

Certaines |uvres de cette installation étaient au c|ur de la controverse

entourant la tentative d'annulation de l'exposition « Ces pays qui

m'habitent : Expressions d'artistes canadiens d'origine arabe », dont le

vernissage a eu lieu au Musée canadien des civilisations à l'automne 2001.

Après avoir regardé les cassettes de l'installation, les directeurs du Musée

tentèrent de « reporter indéfiniment » l'exposition. Un tollé général

international a accueilli cette décision du Musée, qui fut alors forcé de

procéder au lancement et de tenir l'exposition comme prévu. Toutefois, le

Musée revint sur son engagement de tourner l'exposition à l'échelle

internationale et mit en suspens l'importante publication bilingue qu'il

avait préparée et allait mettre sous presse. Les résidants et les visiteurs

de la région de la capitale nationale auront maintenant l'occasion de voir

l'installation intégrale et en évolution constante de Salloum, dans le cadre

confortable et décontracté offert par la Galerie 101.

Les |uvres ci-dessous font partie de l'exposition :

"everything and nothing", « tout et rien », mettant en vedette l'artiste

Jayce Salloum et l'ex-combattante du Front national de la résistance

libanaise, Soha Béchara.

"beauty and the east", « la beauté et l'est » met l'accent sur des questions

de nationalisme et d'État-nation, sur des pôles de temps, d'aliénation, de

refus et de développement d'identités politiques, sur des aspects

d'ethno-fascisme, sur le corps à titre d'objet et de métaphore, sur des

agents, des monstres et sur le misérabilisme, sur des affinités subjectives

et des confiances objectives.

"occupied territories: footnotes to the book of setbacks", « territoires

occupés : renvois au grand livre des revers », met en relief des extraits de

conversations avec Abdel Majid Fadl Ali Hassan (au camp Baddawi) et avec

Nameh Hussein Suleiman (au camp Bourg al Barajinah), deux aînés palestiniens

qui ont vécu dans des camps de réfugiés au Liban depuis 1948.

"(as if) beauty never ends...", « (comme si) la beauté n'a pas de fin... »,

composée de matériel visuel et de son ambiant, dont des orchidées en

floraison et des plantes qui poussent en surimpression sur le métrage des

images brutales filmées après les massacres de 1982 dans les camps de

réfugiés de Sabra et Shatilla au Liban.

"lands", « terres », une vidéo silencieuse présentant des paysages d'Europe

de l'Est. 

"clouds", « nuages », une vidéo silencieuse sur les formations nuageuses,

filmées à partir des fenêtres d'un avion.

"other", « autre », une vidéo silencieuse présentant des scènes de nuit

d'intimité, d'intermèdes et de ménage.

Jayce Salloum |uvre dans les domaines de l'installation, de la photographie,

des techniques mixtes et de la vidéo depuis 1975. Il organise aussi des

expositions, donne des ateliers et assume la coordination de projets

culturels. Il a donné des conférences un peu partout dans le monde et a tenu

de nombreuses expositions dans les Amériques, en Europe, au Japon et au

Moyen-Orient dans des institutions comme The Museum of Modern Art (New

York), le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada (Ottawa), YYZ (Toronto), le Hara

Museum of Contemporary Art (Japon), la Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume

(Paris), l'Institut du Monde Arabe (Paris), le Rotterdam International Film

Festival et le Théâtre de Beyrouth.

Salloum donnera une conférence au sujet de son travail à 17 h 30, le 26

juin, avant le vernissage de l'exposition à 19 h. Vous y êtes tous conviés.

I'll be giving a talk on the shift from subcultures to micro.cultures on
Sunday, July 6th, 11:00-12:45, at a panel entitled: "Playing on Repetition,"

Here's the abstract for my own blurbage: -----

Hearing Difference: The Seme.
tobias c. van Veen 

The study of resistant musical practice has often theorised its status as a
"subculture." Since the advent of global capitalism, however, underground
anarcho-theorists and political philosophers alike have been struggling with
theorising the new position of resistant subcultures. This new position is,
by default, the opposition. No longer able to practice a politics of
disappearance in the mode of a liberatory invisibility, "subcultures" have
shifted through the same terrain as capital: networked globalisation.
Hand-in-hand with the spread of tele-technologies, electronic music cultures
have shifted from the practices of the Temporary Autonomous Zone to what we
can begin to theorise as a network of "microcultures." No longer invisible,
but weaved into the same global fabric as capital, the very terrain of
politics is remixed as microcultures move from resistance to positive and
affirmative ontological projects. At the same time, musical trends play out
this shift as the postmodern aesthetic of sampling is complexified through
the resurgence of computer music, including the digital processes of
granulation and a return to an avant-garde aesthetics of failure. Spin that
