From: Ute Lenssen (
Subject: Event City - Bauhaus Kolleg 2

The second Bauhaus Kolleg, which begins in September 2000, will examine the
changes in architecture and the urban environment in an event-oriented

The urban entertainment culture of the 21st century has spawned a host of
event worlds for shows, amusement and consumerism. Malls, theme parks,
amusement centres and events are symbols of the cultural change accompanying
the disintegration of the previously separate spheres of culture, politics,
society and business. The marketing of cities and regions with spectacular
presentations of history and culture and the redevelopment of city centres
to create event spaces for shopping and entertainment are an eloquent
expression of this development. In ever fewer cases is this process of urban
reorganisation the product of town planning schemes devised by the public
authorities. The commercialisation of cities is being accompanied by a loss
of public space, increasing controls and a growing exclusion of the poor and
destitute. The commercialisation of culture is celebrating its triumphal
march in the event city. Architecture, as an artistic product, is barely in
a position to hold its ground against the powerful flow of cultural goods.
It forms part of the window dressing which cities are using to generate an
image for themselves. Architecture becomes a consumer item.

Global popular culture is leaving its mark on cities in the 21st century.
Urban life is the vessel for a colourful mixture of blends and interfusions,
for the re-composition of cultural practices and the re-telling of
narratives. The images and scripts of global mass culture are being woven
into the routines and imaginary worlds of everyday urban life. Cities are
witness to struggles for cultural representation. The power configurations
for the articulation of different cultures in the event city provide an
indication of the social structure of the post-industrial city.
The culture of the 21st century city is an area of conflicting
interpretations and practices with an explosive juxtaposition of new
inequalities and non-contemporaneity. This confused situation makes it more
and more difficult for architects and urban developers to exercise their
responsibility for the design and structure of public spaces. The second
Bauhaus Kolleg will focus on the changes in the urban environment brought
about by the cultural revamping which cities are undergoing. It will
investigate and analyse the changed conditions in the development of the
urban environment in an event-oriented society with a view to drawing up
design strategies for an "event city beyond sprawl". Urban entertainment
centres with their combination of shopping and popular culture can be seen
as prototypes for the re-urbanisation of cities. They illustrate the
globalisation of urban culture. Project development, management and design
are in the hands of trans-national companies. The goods they have on offer
can be found anywhere in the world. It is in these centres that the global
and the local space come together. The second Bauhaus Kolleg will
incorporate a study of themed department stores as urban spatial nodes.
The design opportunities incorporated in the blueprint for an urban
entertainment centre as an event space for diverse cultures and as a
flexible structure for change and exchange will be discussed using this type
of event city as an example.

1st term - September 1st to November 30th 2000

"Event worlds" - theory and method

The aim of the first term is to provide a comprehensive overview of the
development trends in culture, society, economics, planning and architecture
in the event-oriented society. It will deal with the theory and history,
methodological access to and practical knowledge of the development of the
event city. The first term will be divided up into two blocks. The lectures
and seminars in the first block will provide an overview of the complexity
of the event city. The workshops in the second block will focus on methods
of studying and designing urban environments using the project location, the
European quarter in Frankfurt, as an example. The teaching programme will be
supplemented by excursions to urban event worlds in Germany and to the
project location.

2nd term - February 14th to May 11th 2001

"Urban spatial node" - an architectural blueprint

Frankfurt am Main is planning to erect a new district, the European quarter,
around an urban entertainment centre for shopping, entertainment and popular
culture on disused railway sidings and a site not far from the exhibition
centre. This project is one of the many examples of urban redevelopment
engineered by an alliance of private investors, trans-national companies and
commercial architectural interests. The ensuing transfer of the centre to a
homogenised, commercialised and controlled event world is the subject of
much discussion. The flashy shop window of a standardised urban future
clearly reflects a loss of urbanity.

The Bauhaus Kolleg will devise a model for an urban entertainment centre in
the European quarter in Frankfurt as part of an architectural blueprint. It
will be based on an understanding of the urban event world as an "urban
spatial node", as a flexible structure providing an interfusion of local and
global space, commercialised cultural events and everyday cultural

3rd term - June 19th to September 14th 2001

"Artscapes" - art in practice

"Artscapes" is the term Arjun Appadurai applies to images of the here and
now, images on which works of art are based and from which they derive their
motivation. The suffix "-scape" refers to a recognition of the mobility of
images and to the connections and relations between them. Heterogeneous
cultural materials, scripts and images merge with one another to form urban
spatial nodes in the urban event spaces. Artscapes take up the short-circuit
between global flow and local images and the way they are changed and
exchanged. They characterise the movement between images and the
mass-cultural context of their production and provide an indication of the
changeability of meanings.

The Bauhaus Kolleg will make use of artistic interventions in the form of
artscapes to document the relations of visibility in the artificial
environment of the urban entertainment centre. They will thus be operating
at the interface between what images in the city reveal and what remains
hidden behind the surface of the images.






in the following disciplines; architecture, art, urban and/or landscape
planning, design, the social sciences or humanities, documented in a
curriculum vitae.







A selection committee chooses a maximum of 25 international participants.
Preference is given to those who apply for the entire year. Depending on

Subject: Mutek sound and new technology conference in Montreal

MUTEK welcomes the international avant-garde of sound creation to Montreal

Montreal, May 23, 2000 - Ex-Centris  and F.I.L.M.S. proudly present the
first edition of MUTEK, a five-day event combining music and sound creation
with new technology. The event, which takes place from June 7 to 11, 2000
is brought to you by the same team which has, for the last three years,
organized the Media Lounge and the "New Media" section of the Montreal
International Festival of New Cinema and New Media (FCMM).

In the era of digital tools and new media, MUTEK's goal is to be an annual
gathering showcasing emerging forms of electronic music and the latest
trends in sound creation. Its mission is to be on the cutting edge of
innovation and to provide an environment for discovery.  With the
international profile of its content, MUTEK promises to become a unique
North American event not to be missed.

This first edition programme centres around five evenings of intense
musical and sound experimentation presented by a series of avant-garde
artists from Europe, the United States, and Canada. Confirmed artists
include: Thomas Brinkmann, Pole, Byetone, CoH, Vladislav Delay, Taylor
Deupree, Carsten Nicolai (the most recent recipient of the Golden Nica, in
the Digital Music section, Ars Electronica), Panacea, Sutekh, and [The
User] (Best Canadian New Media Work, FCMM 1998). The first two evenings,
June 7 and 8, will be held in the Fellini theatre at Ex-Centris (complex of
cinema and new media). The last three, from June 9 to 11, will be held at
Café Campus. These events will be webcast live on the Internet. Taking
advantage of the fact that Saint-Laurent Boulevard will be alive with the
rhythm of its summer sidewalk sales, MUTEK will also present a set of urban
happy hours, in complement of its programme.

MUTEK is a project conceived by the Foundation Image Light Motion & Sound
(F.I.L.M.S.), a non-profit organization whose principal mandate is to
develop special projects related to film and digital culture within the
context of Ex-Centris. Ex-Centris is a dynamic environment dedicated to
independant film and new media. Its objective is the development of cinema
as well as of different means of artistic and cultural expression related
to digital technology in Montreal.

Sound Track / live (Savvas Ysatis - Greece)
Films: Iara Lee

Exploring the intersection of the worlds of electronic music, contemporary
architecture and film, ARCHITETTURA is a mixed media installation event
developed by Caipirinha, the New York producers of the films "Synthetic
Pleasures" and "Modulations." Inspired by the work initiated within the
framework of the musical series ARCHITETTURA and supervised by Caipirinha's
music division, established artists explore what harmony and synergy exist
between electronic music and architecture. At first glance, these two art
forms might appear incongruous, yet, in its own way, each offers an
environment shaped by the human imagination. The ARCHITETTURA night
presented by MUTEK will also include the Canadian premiere of four short
films directed by Iara Lee within the framework of the ARCHITETTURA series.

TAYLOR DEUPREE has scoured the different scenes and factions of electronic
music for the last ten years. Best known for his work in ambient music, he
has also demonstrated an interest in microscopic sounds and bringing
together a number of other artists who share this interest, he has created
the compilation "Microscopic Sound" for Caipirinha.
PANACEA, a distinguished figure in hardcore-drum 'n bass, proves that he is
a disciplined musician who yields comfortably to conceptual demands. For
the ARCHITETTURA series, he has a created a work dedicated to the city of
Brasilia and the architect Oscar Niemeyer. The exotic ambiance of this
metropolis of aseptic and futuristic appeal is transposed into a rich and
complex work, in which the marks of his generally strong-arm musical style
remain present, if not slightly scaled down by the concern for its
SOUND TRACK - Savvas Ysatis lives in Greece, where his reputation as a
versatile musician is well established. His temporary residence in New York
led to his encounter with Taylor Deupree, from which numerous projects
arose since, such as "Tower of Winds," inspired by the architectural work
of the same name in Yokohama by architect Toyo Ito. The result is a
profound, ambient and experimental work, which keeps us thrilled with
anticipation during its performance.

Part one:

A specialist of low-scale improvisation who enjoys working with the
seduction and art of sound, ALEXANDRE ST-ONGE presents a finished
high-scale performance at MUTEK. Influenced by both "concrete" and
electroacoustic music, his pieces are based on the degradation of sound by
actions operated on various objects of representation; the stratification
of glitches, disturbances and parasite sounds where surprises abound.

Ex-Centris - Fellini Theatre 9:00 p.m.

Komet / live
Noto / live
Byetone / live
COH / live
Signal / live (Komet + Byetone + Noto)

Part one:
By AE (Canada)

This event headlines various conceptual artists from Berlin who, under the
guise of  RASTER-NOTON, explore the space that lies between electricity,
electronic music, and the art and physiology of sound. Their work, strongly
influenced by the visual arts, exploits the sculptural aspects of sound and
often uses electricity as a primary material, drawing upon the elementary
particles of sound - electric impulses and waves - in order to create
complex musical structures.

NOTO - Carsten Nicolai is a visual artist and German musician. His work
takes on multiple forms - paintings, installations, performances and
recordings - and  has brought him to numerous exhibits around the world.
His recent shows at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and at the Watari-Um
Museum in Tokyo, as well as his recent acquisition of the acclaimed Golden
Nica (prize Ars Electronica for the recording series 20' to 2000) make his
appearance at MUTEK an event not to be missed. His musical work, minimal
and meticulous, lingers on the microscopic errors generated by machines.
The purity of his recordings, comparable to the works of Ryoji Ikeda (Dumb
Type) or Richard Chartier, and their lyrical and humanist characteristics,
announce a new era of contemporary minimalist music falling between
post-techno and conceptual sound art.
KOMET - Frank Bretschneider creates music, that relies on the
experimentation and management of accidental sound instances. His
perception of contemporary music is represented in the unorthodox coupling
of synthetic modules, which emerge into expressive, thought minimalist,
BYETONE - Along with Carsten Nicolai, Olaf Bender is the co-founder of the
label RASTER-NOTON and he is also its graphic artist. He has participated
in a number of collective projects on this label, and is currently in the
midst of a new record.
COH - Ivan Pavlov lives in Sweden and works as a sound engineer. His
musical work captures the active sounds that lie at the heart of seemingly
static bodies. His latest project, "Vox Tinnitus," was completed in
collaboration with the members of the British musical group Coil.

Part one:

S8P ANTENNAS, TRANSMISSION is an audiovisual performative essay about the
life of visionnary inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943): electronics,
electricity, electromagnetics, telecommunications.
Æ is a research and communication unit based on an artistic and
philosophical exchange between Montreal artists Gisèle Trudel and Stéphane
Claude (who have worked creatively together for the past 9 years), with the
regular participation of other collaborators.

Café Campus 9:00 p.m.

Vladislav Delay / live (Finland)
Sutekh / live (USA)
Jake Mandell / live (USA)
Safety Scissors / DJ (USA)

This event is a presentation of various artists who subscribe to the
tradition of sonic and musical exploration initiated by the German label
MILLE PLATEAUX. Remaining within the confines of electronic and techno
music, MILLE PLATEAUX have, for the last five years, been preoccupied with
creating a research environment  where new technologies are used to
generate new musical configurations, with previously unheard tones, which
rely on structures built or induced by new digital tools. MILLE PLATEAUX's
influence has spread quickly, sprouting satellite labels such as FORCE INC
and, more recently, Force Tracks and Ritornell. Their roster of artists, at
first restricted and almost necessarily confined to Germany, has opened
progressively to include musicians from more distant horizons who also
subscribe to MILLE PLATEAUX's approach. The program presented by MUTEK will
emphasize this diversity.

VLADISLAV DELAY seems to navigate between two distinct geographical sound
spaces: the coldness of the great wintry spaces of his native Finland and
the encompassing warmth of Jamaica, land of Dub - a dub revisited by
Germany's Chain Reaction, a label on which Vladislav Delay has already
produced a record and a few 12". Vladislav Delay's music has been known to
go above and beyond that of his influences. Though fragmented and based on
a search for unused and thus anachronistic and ethereal, tones, his
compositions, often long and intemporal seduce with their fluidity. Their
placid organization brings the listener towards a certain goal, which is
barely discernible at the beginning of the performance.
JAKE MANDELL has composed more than 250 pieces in the last few years.
Driven by his typically American, unremitting surroundings of Minneapolis,
his work is very experimental, and relies on the duality between minimalist
rhythmic structures and up-to-date computer programming. Despite the
apparent formality of such a combination, it allows for music nevertheless
enriched by diverse influences, particularly film music.
SUTEKH is part of a new generation of prolific artists from California
whose renown promises to grow ever larger. His compositions are based on
the foundations of minimalist music and are true festive jewels in which
purified Californian influences blend together with sound research and the
mix of influences.
SAFETY SCISSORS is a member of the new San Francisco scene. He has
previously recorded on the Context label and has other works in progress,
Force Tracks in particular.

Café Campus 9:00 p.m.

Thomas Brinkmann / live (Germany)
Triple R / DJ (Germany)
Tomas Jirku / live (Canada)

Based on minimalist music and other experimentations this event is an
exploration of  the geometry of sound and rhythm.

BRINKMANN and TRIPLE R (Riley) are two resident artists from Cologne. The
temptation was strong to label tonight's evening "The Sound of Cologne,"
which would be the stereotype. It is true that for a few years, a certain
number of Cologne's artists have carried out one another's exploration of
the  minimalist geometry of the sound and rhythm of electronic music -
names like Mike Ink or labels like Profan and Kompakt spring immediately to
mind. Although Brinkmann and Riley definitely contribute to the creative
ecology of Cologne, but to relate their individual progress uniquely to a
purely geographic phenomenon would not do justice to either of them.
On his labels Max + Ernst (which translate into maximum + serious),
Brinkmann explores the expressive realm of sonic architecture by way of the
repetitive and calculated use of elementary particles of sound. At times
conceptual (he comes from the field of visual arts) and pragmatic, he
performs an in-depth explorations of the space that lies between the
grooves of his records. Searching for an unsuspected dimension which could
reclaim the interstitial spaces between the sounds; he has become known as
a voluntary "remixer" of the minimal series Studio by Mike Ink and Concept
by Richie Hawtin. He does not conceal his interest for the spiritual
dimension of music and derives an abstract, yet expressive,  affective
quality from his mathematically rhythmic constructions.
TRIPLE R belongs to a small group of DJ's responsible for the launch of the
house and techno culture in Cologne in the late 80's. He has several
records to his credit (among others, on the labels Disko B and Elektro
Music Department), founded DEBUG magazine and, most recently, became
heavily involved in the Cologne experimental music scene with the birth of
his own label TRAUM, German for 'dream.' His collaboration with Brinkmann
promises a rich and exalting evening.
TOMAS JIRKU is a young programmer on the Toronto scene. If his music seems
similar to the sounds emanating from the Berlin scene (Basic Channel and
Chain Reaction), he possesses, nevertheless, his own version of dub's
roots, a bewitching framework of atmospheric and search for sound. To his
credit, he has a flourishing production: a CD, numerous pieces released on
the Toronto site No Type, as well as a new CD on the Montreal label Alien8.
There is no doubt that Tomas Jirku is a creator to watch.

Petit Campus 9:00 p.m.

Pole / live (Germany)
Kit Clayton / live (USA)
Dakca / live (Canada)
Algorithm / DJ (Canada)

For its closing event, MUTEK celebrates the return of POLE to Montreal by
presenting an evening of soundscapes in the colours of electronic dub.

STEFAN BETKE enjoys an international career making remarkable use of the
errors generated by imperfect machines. Using the pseudonym Pole, this
sound engineer and producer of the ~Scape label, which represents renowned
artists of contemporary dub, offers exhilarating compositions against an
atmospheric background. Even if the creation depends on computer
programming, the emphasis is placed on the errors nevertheless perpetrated
by these machines. The resulting music is sensual, humanistic yet cerebral,
containing accents of an archaic past (the basis of dub as well) while
remaining profoundly contemporary.
KIT CLAYTON is a sorcerer of the studio: the multiple facets of his work
derives from the search of rhythm and hybridization in digital and analog
sounds. Following Pole's influence, Kit Clayton is inspired by dub's
recording methods and uses the past, better to influence the future.
Likewise, he combines conventional modern recording techniques of
acousmatic production with the possibilities generated by information
technology. With several vinyls on various labels to his credit, he
produces his peers' sound research for the labels Cytrax and Ornthorg.
DAKCA, the duo of Mitchell Akiyama and Jean-Patrice Remillard, offers music
within the confines of ambient minimalism and the search for rupture and
deconstruction. Its substantially drawn-out performances are an invitation
to immerse oneself in the gentle mixture of the worlds of analog and
digital machinery.
JEFF MILLIGAN hails from Toronto. To the quality of his work as a DJ, he
brings a profound knowledge of sound engineering and a marked aversion to
mercantilism and stagnation. The quality and style of his DJing and his
enlightened choices of music have attracted the attention of talented
German minimalists Monolake and Thomas Brinkmann, and have Milligan
traveling more and more often in order to spread the magic, which emanates
from his performances.


Akufen / live
Herri Kopter / live

HERRI KOPTER member of the Montreal Oral collective, is the alter ego of
prolific musician Jérome Minière who is currently working on his third
record of songs dubbed "apartment" songs. Listening only to his inner
inspiration, Jérome produces small electronic wonders worthy of various
contemporary German labels such as A-Muzik or Sonig (the experimental label
of Mouse on Mars.)
AFUKEN is the latest pseudonym of Montreal musician Marc Leclair (Reno
Disco on the Haute-Couture label, Noiz Slack-R on Hybrid), who appears here
in his most purified form. He explores the stimulating and surprising
possibilities of a minimalism whose roots lie in the most evolved forms of

LABEL: 12K (New York)
Taylor Deupree + Richard Chartier / live

Led by TAYLOR DEUPREE, the New York label 12K specializes in musical
compositions characterized by their microscopic tones and hyper-synthetic
textures. Deupree will present his work with RICHARD CHARTIER, artist,
painter and ultra-minimalist composer who works with frequencies situated
at both extremities of the sound spectrum, as well as in silence.

LABEL: HAUTEC (Montreal)
Mateo + Pheek / live
Deadbeat / live
Martin / DJ

Parent label of Haute Couture, Hautec is hoping to implicate itself in all
facets of electronic music, from the simplicity of minimalism to the
flamboyance of house. With the strength of their explorative artists behind
them, Hautec is sure to meet its goal.
DEADBEAT might only be 22, but his thirst for producing and his confidence
in his own abilities make him a choice candidate for the Montreal label
Hautec. His successes combine computer programming with the search for the
physical and organic sources of sound.
MATEO + PHEEK are two musicians who, since their first encounter in 1996,
have worked together to define what lies behind the construction of
spellbinding music. Their performances in numerous events (including Media
Lounge) led them to sign with the Hautec label.

LABEL: CONTEXT (San Francisco)
Safety Scissors / live
Sutekh / DJ

A California based record label, Context is a platform for music which
presents the listener more musical questions than answers. While Context
has strong roots in dance music, most notably techno, it explores
uncomfortable areas where this definition makes no sense. With disregard to
the name itself, Context is more interested in sonic expressionism and the
structures that it might lead to rather than conceptualism superimposed on


>From the world's most adventurous music magazine comes a DJ (ANNE HILDE
NESET) spinning a mixed up selection of the leftfield musics that are
regularly championned in The Wire.  A typical Wire Sound System set flows
through an eclectic selection of styles, from abstract electronic drift to
minimal techno pulse, taking in free jazz, lock-groove turntablism, messy
HipHop  and queasy post-rock.

"Words have the power to change the way we see the world."  Miltos Manetas

In the entire history of art, only a few movements have been named by
artists themselves. The Renaissance, the Baroque, Impressionism, even the
terms modern and post-modern, were invented by critics or art historians.
Contemporary artist Miltos Manetas' current project will create a word that
attempts to be as effective as the word Cubism and as popular and absurd as
Surrealism and Dada to describe the developments of technology-based
artistic production. This desire to define such new media and
cyber-influenced creativity led him, with the assistance of APF, to Lexicon

2. Our recommendation: Erwin Redl - truth is a moving target

There is an excellent opportunity to start your own collection
with a work of Erwin Redl!


Titel:"truth is a moving target"

Edition: 50/50
Collector`s Edition with one original print
Technology Used - Shockwave

The internet project 'Truth is a moving target' is a first attempt to work
with text material I collected since 1994. These texts, which I simply
labeled 'sentences', are thoughts I wanted to record - being afraid not to
remember them later. The first sentence I wrote down was 'Truth is moving

The web piece always starts with the title, then the user decides by
interacting with the mouse how the texts develop. Should the viewer prefer
to be passive the program itself evolves over time employing strategic
chance operations. The intertwining of active and passive participation,
linearity and controlled randomness traces the flexible structure of

Onestar Press, A collection of Books by Artists

A new book by New York based artist

Tim Maul


Historically, artists studios in Manhattan range from
cavernous silver factories to rented rooms where dust
breeds.This photographic tour allows us to scrutinize an
artists 'workspace' in the absence of both the artist and
art. An obsessive portrait in pictures imposes a
narrative where we 'visit' and 'look' and possibly find
evidence that a book cannot be judged by its
cover. Tim Maul 5/00

Subject: Excavating The Archive Conference, June 3, 2000


an international colloquium on the state of digital archiving

co-sponsored by Parsons School of Design and AGENCY.COM

Saturday June 3rd, 2000
at Swayduck Auditorium, 65 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
admission free

If, one day, *everything* will be accessible online or in some digital
then what will this really entail — practically and philosophically?

"Excavating The Archive: New Technologies of Memory" will bring together
internationally-renowned computer scientists, designers, new media theorists
and artists from the U.S., Europe and Australia, to explore this utopian

Speakers will define the cutting edge in digital archiving, presenting new
projects and advanced software prototypes for collection, navigation, visual
representation and data mining of vast bodies of information, in diverse
cultural and commercial contexts.

Among the questions "Excavating The Archive" will investigate are:

• what new interfaces are being created for archive storage and retrieval?
• what kinds of new materials and subjects are being archived?
• what are the technological limits of digital archiving?
• what assumptions lie behind these digital storage techniques ?
• what metaphors and mapping strategies are being applied to navigate and
retrieve data?

Subject: MOMENTUM : The Hotwired Live Electronic Resistance Network Art 
         Party Plan


The Hotwired Live Electronic Resistance Network Art Party Plan

a weekend event of ambient electronic and live theatre from parallel
performance spaces in Toronto (Canada), Moss (Norway) and Amsterdam (the
Netherlands) joined through the internet

                Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28, 2000, 2-8pm

                Ryerson Polytechnic University   School of Image Arts
                122 Bond Street   Sound Stage   #301

Momentum is a weekend of ambient theatre and live art activities in a
social setting. Participating artists work with analog and digital video
mixing, sound, media based and sculpture installation, and live
performance. Three performance spaces (in Norway, Canada and the
Netherlands) are joined, the Internet is used as a platform for exchange.

The performance space in Toronto is a social space and lab, designed to
facilitate a two day dialogue between space, sound, image, live and
tele-presence. It is divided into work/play stations with lounge "islands",
placed in between. This allows the visitor to wander through these spaces,
sit, relax and even be given the opportunity to participate in the event as
a performer.

Technical misunderstandings, and breakdowns will be handled by the
emergency crew, easily identified by their cheerful orange vests and hats.
First 50 people through the door each day get a free watch.

Alternatively, mediated viewing and participation can be done from anywhere
with an internet connection. Follow the homepage for
more details.

From: " ::: center 4 hardwired arts :::: : :

Subject: What is Netart and how to find it ?

Netart is a kind of (electronic) art which uses the media internet as 
playground to the artists (alternative) points of view. So don't expect to 
find documentations on common art like "Picasso Scans Gallery" here ;-)

--- Netart vs. Art on the Net ---

The art market has discovered the net for the distribution of art. It uses 
the net to promote art just like ordinary companies. Gallerists, museums 
and other art brokers provide information about their artists, exhibitions 
and events. For them, the net is nothing more than a big telephone book in 
which they too want to (have to) be represented.
For more please refer to :
by Joachim Blank, 1996.


Since the artists' discover of using the web as creative playground, alot 
of so called "" was released. But how to find
out of hundreds of links on common searchengines ? Searchengines can be 
divided in robots and editorial ones. The editorial ones like "yahoo" 
decide by human subjectivity what to show and what not to show, the robots 
like "altavista" are contextless and list everything, but the one you 
search on.

In 1998 was founded to solve the problem and to set up a 
general interes portalsite for those people interessted in netart or 
mediaart. The Aim of is to set up a general entrancepoint 
(portal) for people who are interessted in netart projects on one hand and 
to start the work of archiving like a virtual museum on the other hand. is ment as a "container" - a skeleton, which is being 
fulfilled and enhanced by the decentral input of the users that are focused 
on mediaart/netart. In opposite to other (media/net)Art or Cultureservers 
and commercial Searchengines, - center for hardwired arts 
takes a new way between refering to friends linklists and 
technological/context-missing architectures of common searchengines. The 
database content is not blown up by automatic searchrobots nor shrink by 
the single objectivity of a editorial staff. The maxime of is 
autonomity, as this ensure the maximum of objectivity on nowadays netart. 
Beside the art database, the server underlines the autonomous usage by the 
users in many ways, such as collaborative titlecovers, filesharing, 
discussion board and even the error messages (404 File not found) can be 
customized by the vistitors.

You are the user, you are the editor !
If you're involved to netart please use our database searchengine which is 
listing 571 unique projects right now. If you want to ensure that your 
projects got visited by a highly specialized audience ( is 
being communicated at special servers like zkm, walkerart, debug, mikro...) 
please support the collaborative work of the netart scene by submitting 
your project(s) at:

Futhermore there's a little bonus for you,
if you want to include the  media/net/art searchengine 
directly to your website simply use the following code within your page:

-- copy & paste ------------------------------8>< - - - -- -----
<form action="" name="Formular" 
<input type="text" name="searchkeys" size="20">
<input type="hidden" name="parameter" value="all">

<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="go">&nbsp;
<input type="button" name="add" value="add project" 
onClick="document.location.href = ''">
-- copy & paste ------------------------------8>< - - - -- -----

If you're skilled in HTML you'll surely can modify the source to fit you 
webservers corporate identity.
