Virginia Barratt & Beth Stryker or

</bigger></bold>Artspace artist-in-residence Beth Stryker from New York
and artist Virginia Barratt present a collaborative, cross-circuited
webspace and site-specific installation which interrogates the
pathologisation of deviant desires.

crosSeXXXAmination viewers/subjects enter the cross-linked XXX spaces
created by the collaborating artists and writers via an eXXXamination
station with a web-based interface. Viewers/Subjects will be
scrutinised, coded, recombined, exposed. They will be
encouraged/coerced into divulging the secret machinations of their
pathological desires by a number of benevolent exxxaminers who exist
within the system. Classifications and diagnostic practises used to
discipline queer identities, dis/eased subjects, those who are a danger
to themselves and others, will be exploited and inverted.

The work has been influenced by artificial intelligence icon, queer and
androgyne Alan Turing, whose work suggests new routes for machine
[s]exchange. His Turing test, adopted by the scientific community as
the standard for assessing machine intelligence, originally called for
a computer to be able to convincingly perform as a man, passing as a
woman. In his story the borders between deviancy and discipline,
machine and human blur. Arrested for consensual homosexual sex, Turing
himself underwent the effects of hormonal sex change, as a result of
organotherapy enforced as a 'cure' for his sexual deviancy.
crosseXXXamination performs machine intelligence as machine
transsexualism, reprocessing users, and feeding back a recombinant flow
of body parts and re-written subjectivities.

The Body [S]exxxchange in Glare Window, a window display facing the
street-frontage, will feature: inmate Barratt performing obsessive
compulsive textual reordering behind bars and an ongoing dis/play of
body parts + consumable flesh projected in digital peepshow mode to

Collaborating Artists and Writers: Linda Dement, Rea, Sarah Waterson,

others. Automatic web system programmed by Linda Tauscher. Cubicle
design by Jane Becker. Costumes by Zac Kelly. Opening Night

Michele Barker & Anna Munster

</bigger></bold>What has become of the specimen in a digital epoch,
where discrete objects are no longer examined under the lens nor
displayed publicly in the classificatory regime of the museum? This
dissolution of the conditions under which material bodies can be
perceived and known gives way to the computer and monitor as both
generator and display case for mutating codes and fragmented, simulated

The show, Specimen, looks at a new variety of exhibited object produced
by the play of digital imaging; the 'morpheme'. The morpheme represents
the hybridity which computer imaging makes possible; the specimen, no
longer immobilised by dissection and display, but mutating and
interbreeding over time. However, the morpheme is also representative
of a tension located within the logic of digital technology itself.
This develops between the hierarchical, orderly processing and storing
of data in the computer on the one hand, and the chaos and confusion of
information which deletes itself, mutates and transforms, on the other.
In a sense there is a replaying here of the Enlightenment
classificatory  and scientific organisation of the specimen against the
baroque display of the deformity or curio in the Wunderkammer, or
cabinet of wonders.

While conceptually collaborative, the show consists of two separate
pieces each from the artists. Michele Barker uses 3D digital imaging
and sculpture to form an installation titled Monstrance. She also has a
long mural digital print, (A) Theory of Preformation. Both these pieces
look at the place of mutation in the history of science and in our
preconceptions about how bodies should appear and be formed. Anna
Munster's work is a computer-based interactive with three still
accompanying images, taking the user through a series of hypothetical
and labyrinthine detours in a baroque curiosity cabinet.=20

the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. A Sydney Gay

<bold><bigger>She's No Serial Killer

Jasmine Hirst

</bigger></bold>"In May 1992 I saw a photograph of Aileen Wuornos in
the newspaper. She had just received four more death sentences for the
murder of seven men. Aileen claimed that the men, who had picked her up
while she was working as a prostitute on the highways of Florida, had
raped or attempted to rape her. The media labelled her 'the first
female serial killer'. I wrote to her. We have been corresponding ever

On August 20 1997 I finally met Aileen on Florida's death row. It had
taken over five years to get there. I spent two hours with her. Tired
of the media's mistreatment of her, Aileen wished for me to film her
talking about the truth of her life before she is executed. She's No
Serial Killer will eventually be a full length documentary. This
installation at Artspace is an appetiser. I will show a portion of the
interview with Aileen." (JH)

Kaye Shumack

</bigger></bold>A photo-based installation which has been developed as
part of the QueerZone Project exploring issues of community and the
queerness of Sydney life. These works confound the distinction between
the real and the imaginary through ambiguous image narratives which
conflate the mundane everyday, the ominous underworld and the fantastic

The four fictional characters express a queer identity which is closely
linked to their interactions with the urban landscapes of Sydney's
streets, cafes, bars, bedrooms and public spaces. These stories are
developed through the installation context using slide projection,
video stills and photographic works.

QueerZone Project has been funded and supported by internal research
funds from the University of Western Sydney, Nepean; Women's Research
Centre, UWS Nepean; Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras; and Casula

           PUBLIC DOMAIN V 83.0 MedienXperimente
           about Hackerbibles and Hempbooks

         Werner   Pieper  on  Sunday,  1.2.98,
         at  Bunker  Ulmenwall, Bielefeld, Germany

           He publishes books like "Hackerbible 1 and  2",  "The  German
           Cockroach",  "The Shitbook", books on drug culture, CDs, MCs,
           stamps, and distributes the "Loompanics Catalogue". He helped
           many  new  topics  on  their  way,  without  devoting himself
           completely to them.

           Werner Pieper, mediaXperimentator, author and publisher  from
           Loehrbach (Germany, Heidelberg area), is friends with most of
           his writers. There are no written contracts, everything works
           on  the  basis  of  trust.  He  does  not  do  any aggressive
           advertising for  his  products,  he  still  relies  on  being
           recommended by others. This rather unusual company conception
           works since more than 25 years. Curious?

         Background of the PUBLIC DOMAIN events:

           PUBLIC DOMAIN  is  a  series  of  monthly  events  at  Bunker
           Ulmenwall  in Bielefeld, which runs already since 1987. Every
           first  sunday  of  the  month   there   is   a   lecture,   a
           demonstration,   a  workshop  or  a  panel  discussion  on  a
           different  topic.  PUBLIC  DOMAIN  has  become  an  important
           regional  and  also  national  monthly  meeting point for all
           people interested in the fascinating field between future and
           society,  technology  and  environment,  science  and general
           knowledge, art and culture and  who  want  to  exchange  with

           PUBLIC  DOMAIN  welcomes especially those who don't just want
           to listen, but contribute by bringing their own  work,  share
           their  ideas with others in the network and who like exciting
           and controversial discussions.

         About our PUBLIC DOMAIN guest  in  Feburary,  Werner  Pieper:

           Born in the Sauerland he now lives in the Heidelberg area for
           more  than  30 years. He passed his professional training and
           examination as a cook with distinction to start then to  work
           as  a  hashish dealer for 7 years. As a mediaXperimentator he
           works since 1971 under the label "Gr¸ne Kraft" (green  power)
           and  runs a book and CD publishing house with associated mail

           In contrary to conventional publishers he always  leaves  the
           rights  of  the  publications  with the authors. His products
           don't bear scan codes. Werner  Pieper  surfs  on  information
           waves,  before  others  even  know about their existence. For
           instance he published the first book in  German  language  on
           organic  food  (1973), Indians today (1973), juggling (1982),
           shit   (1986)    and    the    German    cockroach    (1997).

           He published about 150 books so far, works as editor-in-chief
           for  some  magazines  (Kompost,  Humus,  Der  gemeine Ketzer,
           Liebe) and writes on a (ir)regular basis for papers like taz,
           Sounds  und  Das Parlament. He loves pseudonymes and was seen
           under different names on TV (for instance at J¸rgen  von  der
           Lippe's show).

           He  likes  to  do  things  he has never done before - like an
           appearance in Bielefeld - despite this is not an easy one for
           him as a fan of Borussia Dortmund soccer club...

SUBJECT:  ISEA98 Symposium Programme Committee

The International Symposium on Electronic Arts is an academic conference and
exhibition programme of the highest calibre.  It has been staged yearly in a
different world city since 1989.  Rotterdam was host in 1996, Chicago in 1997.
Authority to host the annual symposium is by way of competitive tender to the
Inter Society of Electronic Arts, Montreal.  Late in 1995 a partnership
comprising Liverpool Art School (LJMU), Manchester Metropolitan University
of Fine Arts and the Foundation for Creative Art and Technology (FACT)
successfully bid to co-stage the ninth symposium at  02-07 September 1998.
will be the first staging of the ISEA symposium in the U.K.

The ISEA98 Partnership is determined to curate and present an exciting and
coherently themed programme.  To this end, an international group (of 16)  is
being invited to comment on proposals from academics, artists and others
to participate in the symposium.  This group, or Liverpool ISEA98 Programme
Committee (LPC), will be chaired by Sean Cubitt, Reader in Video and Media
Studies at John Moores University.  Sean is also Chair of the Board of Trustees
of our partner organisation FACT.

After consultations with Sean Cubitt, Colin Fallows(Reader in Audio & Visual
Arts and Contextual Studies Head of Department at Liverpool Art School) and
others a consensus has been reached concerning membership of the LPC.  I hope
you will be able to accept this invitation to join the LPC. Please find
a full list of invitees.
I am aware your time is valuable and have sought to minimise LPC demands
upon it
(see schedule below).

I am informed that, for university research purposes, participation in the LPC
may be cited as an output under the category  Membership of Professional

There are two routes for symposium proposals to be considered for ISEA98:
(1) An open call for proposals with a deadline of 15.01.98 produced a response
of 160 abstracts.
(2) A small group of academics at LJMU are calling for specific responses to
tightly themed symposium panels they will directly curate and manage.  Deadline
for this will be early March and, by definition, will elicit a numerically
limited response.

Schedule and process for Route No1:

LPC members will be paired (8 groups of two).  A group will read the same 20
proposals and provide comment  to the LPC Chair using a straightforward
template based on the ISEA98 theme of Revolution.  Thus all 160 proposals will
be commented on by at least two LPC members   i.e. 160 ÷ 16 x 2.  If it
takes 15
minutes to read/assess each proposal then each LPC member will spend
approximately five hours (20 x 15 minutes) in relation to Route No1.

The easiest means of communication is via a closed email list-server
whereby you
will be able to see all proposals and all comments by LPC members.  This would
be a paperless process and I am able to set it up immediately.  If you
prefer to
handle real paper I have two Project Assistants working with me who will look
after administration.  Comments on Route No1 need to be completed within

The smaller task of commenting on Route No2 needs to be completed in March,
however the bulk of this work will be carried out by the academics who are
convening/ curating the panels.

Would you please indicate your availability / or not to join the LPC as soon as

thank you for your attention in this matter.

Best regards,

John Brady
ISEA98 Research Co-ordinator
Liverpool Art School.

Smith, Professor Peter Fowler,
