The Subject

Total technologization has embraced all life spheres of contemporary
The very logic of technological development directed to progress and
innovation might seem to be pursuing and positively affecting culture and
art that more and more often address technology services.
New technology bears a positive aspect of what we would call the progress.
This notion embraces political, economic, social and cultural factors. On
the other hand, we could witness that new technology development provokes
the situation of devaluation. In this respect, technology becomes repressive
towards traditional cultural, social, economic and political values. As a
result, an active transformation of traditional culture into new
representative forms occurs, evoking both well founded and not grounded
On the whole, this position is based on the state that technological
progress does not affect essential and traditional interests of art and
Thus, a dual evaluation of this problem contains both 'pro' and 'contra'
And theorists and activists expressing different opinions (positive and
negative, pro@contra) on the problem will take part in discussions.

          The Future of the Public Sphere in Cyberspace

                    University of Washington HUB
                      Seattle, Washington, USA

            Society   +++   Bridging   the Digital Divides   +++ Activism

       Cyberspace is likely to become the dominant medium through which
       people create and share information and ideas in the future.  How
       these conversations about the environment, culture, leisure, and
       political decisions, are conducted is everybody's business.

What directions and implications does cyberspace foretell for
community, democracy, education and culture?

                                         Is e-commerce ALL there is?!?

This symposium is the seventh in CPSR's "Directions and Implications of
Advanced Computing" (DIAC) symposium series.  This symposium tackles
important public interest issues related to computing and
communications that are often neglected by the news media.

The objective of DIAC-2000 is to integrate many perspectives,
conversations, and people from around the world.  What is the public
sphere in cyberspace?  What should it be?  How can people use it?  What
experiments, projects, and policies should we initiate?

    We need stories, theories, and ideas that can help us
    discuss, reflect, and take action.

Social and environmental activists, educators, technologists,
government officials, artists, journalists, researchers, and citizens
are coming from all over the world to participate.  15 Russians who are
developing civic networks in six Russian cities will discuss their work
developing new civic institutions.  Prominent researchers and activists
from Europe who are working on issues from human rights to cultural
policy have also been invited to present.  A research thread also runs
through the symposium: How can academia and the civic sector work
together and learn from each other?

Although we are still shaping up the agenda we are expecting the following
eminent participants.

  + Natasha Bulashova; Friends and Partners; Moscow, Russia
  + Fiorella de Cindio; Milano Rete Civiche; Milan, Italy
  + Penny Goldsmith; Poverty Network; Vancouver, Canada
  + Susana Finquelievich; Buenos Aires, Argentina
  + Cees Hamelink; Human Rights and Communication Rights; University of
    Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  + Nancy Kranich, president-elect of the American Library Association

  + Geert Lovink; Media Theorist and Activist; Society for Old and New
    Media (Amsterdam); now in Canberra, Australia
  + Veran Matic; B92 Radio and Internet; Belgrade, Yugoslavia
  + Partha Pratim Sarker; Bytes for All; Dhaka, Bangladesh
  + Judy Sparrow; National Telecommunications and Information Agency;
    Washington, DC.
  + Nicol Turner; Mapping Community Assets; Net Consulting Group, Chicago

variety of topics including setting up your own community network,
community asset mapping, and many others.

officials, journalists, and other community members.  Please mark you
calendars to attend and help us make "Shaping the Network Society: The
Future of the Public Sphere in Cyberspace" as important and inspiring
as possible.

                 We hope to see you in Seattle this May!

The Second Akihabara City Video Installation

*Outline of the project*

This is the second international video art show to take place in Akihabara
- Tokyo's famous electric town from March 16th to March 29th, 2000.
"Akihabara TV" is based on a very simple but unique idea - to change the
ordinary view of Akihabara  through the showing of site specific video art
on monitors and TV screens throughout the town. There are hundreds of shops
and buildings in Akihabara selling high-tech machinery and goods, TV
monitors, video decks and computers. The project will utilize as many of
these televisions and monitors as possible for the installation. 34 artists
from 12 different countries join and new short short video works will be
shown on TV monitors. Visitors to Akihabara will automatically become the
audience and, in seeing art in such an ordinary situation, will be given an
opportunity to experience art in a different way to that normally offered
in museums or galleries.
The dramatic developments in technology, in hardware, make themselves
obvious in the area, but in the meantime, what part has any software or
what is shown on these screens contributed to the development of this site?
By projecting art into a public space, this show will question the meaning
of visual information in this visually diverse world, which may also force
us to consider the controversial position of video art in art history.
   The first Akihabara TV happened in 1999, and drew a great deal of
attention from many different audiences as well as various kinds of media.
In this second project we would like to work in closer co-operation with
local people and municipal corporations, and also with more of the up and
coming international artists in our network.

*command N is here! Information Center Open!
The command N as information center of Akihabara TV temporarily opens for
Located just in the middle of Akihabara, here people will be able to get

works at the gallery space. The artist's previous video works and
documentation will  also be available to give more information to visitors.

EIKK und ZKM präsentieren

Workshops und Filme rund um das Postproduktionshaus DAS WERK

Die Digitalisierung der Filmtechnik ist längst keine Zukunftsmusik mehr und
aus der zeitgenössischen Filmindustrie nicht mehr wegzudenken. Die
Möglichkeit zum unabhängigen Filmemachen wird ebenso greifbar wie
hochaufwendige Spezialeffekte perfekter und erschwinglicher werden. Vom
dänischen Dogmafilm, in dem die Absenz von aufwendigem Drehequipment zur
Tugend erhoben werden, bis zu George Lucas' Star Wars, der fast nur noch
aus Tricks und Effekten besteht, bedienen sich alle der neuen Technologien,
mit deren Hilfe nicht nur alles billiger, sondern auch alles Vorstellbare
herstellbar scheint.

Wim Wenders' Buena Vista Social Club, der dieses Jahr für den Oscar in der
Kategorie "Bester Dokumentarfilm" nominiert wurde, ist wiederum ein
Beispiel für den unschätzbaren Wert der Videotechnik im
Dokumentarfilmbereich und ihre "neue" ästhetische Verwendung:

"Auf einmal ist es so, als würden alle Filme nur deshalb gemacht, um voll
Stolz die digitalen Effekte herzuzeigen. Das ganze digitale Handwerk muss
sich erst mal davon erholen, nur als Medium der Spezialeffekte betrachtet
worden zu sein. Es gibt noch immer keinen Science-Fiction Film, der die
Eleganz von 2001 hat, und zu dem Zeitpunkt war das Wort digital noch nicht
mal bekannt. Allmählich wird man die Technik beherrschen und dann kann man
sich auch wieder dem Geschichtenerzählen widmen."
Wim Wenders

DAS WERK gibt einen breiten Überblick über neueste Entwicklungen im Bereich
Effekte, neue Technologien wie das neue 24P-Verfahren von Sony, Produktion,
digitaler Postproduktion und Projektentwicklung. Ute Schneider von der Wim
Wenders-Produktionsfirma ROAD MOVIES (u.a. Buena Vista Social Club, The
Million $ Hotel) berichtet über den Stand der Dinge auf internationaler

Im Filmprogramm werden einschlägige Beispiele wie Die Legende vom
Ozeanpianisten und Lola rennt gezeigt. Im zeitgleich eröffnenden Filmpalast
am ZKM ist im Abendprogramm ausserdem der von DAS WERK aufwendig
postproduzierte Film Otto - Der Katastrofenfilm zu sehen, in dessen
Herstellung DAS WERK am Freitagnachmittag Einblick gibt (s.u.).
