Subject: bauhaus radio reader


The Bauhaus in Weimar is the first university in Germany which has
founded a Faculty of Media. Visual and auditive media are getting the
same attention and the dispute on media is dealing with art, theory and
technology. The chair for Experimental Radio, which was established in
1999, is the only one in Germany which teaches radio in the context of
fine arts. This artistic practice is understood as an open field which
supports interdisciplinary approaches, in the range from aesthetic
operations, newest technological developments and even political
The request of the Bauhaus Radio Reader is to give the students the
opportunity for a self-determined recess on international discourses.
There is a special emphasis on texts which locate radio in arts, in the
culture of streaming media or which help the students to analyse the
history and development of radio. The Radio Reader is first of all meant

for the Bauhaus radio department and could be turned into a real book if

we all think that it is worth presenting it to a publishing house. Other

schools can of course use the reader too. The collection of essays
should be copy left so that everyone can use it and it works more as an
open source for the dispute which allows additions and inconsistence.
A board of editors who overview by virtue of their outstanding knowledge

and experience in the field of radio, art and media theory will be
adressed to sample the texts. The selection will run by a small
email-list and for further discussion collected at
The Radio Reader should be seen a small, informal (xerox) follow-up
of the Semiotext(e) publication Radiotexte, edited in 1992 by Neil
Strauss. There is no contemporary radio reader available at the moment
which reflects what happened to radio in the nineties. It could therefor

be good to discuss together which key texts there are these days which
deal with "broad radio", a re-invention of radio in the age of digital
technologies, electronic music hype, the Internet, mp3, the further
spreading of micro, free and pirate radios and the rave/club scene and of course. We could also include a few examples such as B92
but also Ruanda (where radio played a very dubious role). Then there is
of course the
section of classic radio texts (which keep on being rediscovered)
and examples how artists deal with radio.

Subject: Esther Dyson calls for GLOBAL PARTIES OF THE INTERNET

Dear all,

to let you know: we @ openDemocracy have just published a big interview with
Esther Dyson. URL here:

Eastern European icon? Right-wing NWOer? Peripatetic meme of self-organising
networks? Corporate stooge? She's been called many things.

But what's really interesting is that she's now calling for global political
parties for ICANN. She's all for the elected at-large membership but she
thinks it needs to be more broad-based and accountable - and structured!

Quite a change for this former chair of the EFF, who thought in '94 that the
net would wither away political parties and replace them with loose, ad-hoc
affiliations... is she right or wrong? Is ad-hoccery not scaleable into
global democracy? lots of questions...

Ask her questions onsite about the idea or anything else, and she'll
respond. Speak to power! - or at least, to one of the root servers of the
power network...

Subject: Anoyances are  temporary, improvements are permanent

Museo Carrillo Gil
June 27th - August 5th, 2001 
Mexico City 

"Las molestias son temporales, las mejoras permanentes" (Anoyances are  
temporary, improvements are permanent) is a curatorial experiment in which  
10 artists will develop pieces during the process of lighting installation  
on the Museum's third floor. 
This event is an exploration in the Museum space which proposes another  
perspective as opposed to the white cube as the referential context for art.  
In this case, the works are exposed and integrated to the natural movements  
and matters of every day life, thus providing a vision interrupted by noise  
and dust in a simultaneous change of context. 
The project, which is a collaboration between Museum, artists and  workers,  
imitates the process of art on the web, whose elements are in constant	
transformation.  In this case, each agent is altered by the activities of  
each one of the other actors in their temporary cohabitation. 
Participating artists: Sofía Táboas, Pedro Reyes, HCRH, Acamonchi, José León  
Cerrillo, Atlético, Miguel Calderón, Ismael Merla, Tamañ, Stefan Brüggemann. 
This project was curated by Mario García Torres.

Copyleft Attitude : the Free Art license

Free Art license
[ Copyleft Attitude ]

version 1.1

Preamble: see at
With this Free Art License, you are authorised to copy, distribute and
freely transform the work of art while respecting the rights of the
Far from ignoring the author's rights, this license recognises them and
protects them.
It reformulates their principle while making it possible for the public
to make creative use of the works of art. Whereas current literary and
artistic property
rights result in restriction of the public's access to works of art, the

goal of the Free Art License is to encourage such access.

The intention is to make work accessible and to authorise the use of its

resources by the greatest number of people: to use it in order to
increase its use, to create newconditions for creation in order to
multiply the
possibilities of creation, while respecting the originators in according

them  recognition and defending their moral rights.

In fact, with the arrival of the digital age, the invention of the
Internet and free software, a new approach to creation and production
has made its appearance. It also encourages a continuation of the
of experimentation undertaken by many contemporary artists.

Knowledge and creativity are resources which, to be true to themselves,
must remain free, i.e. remain a fundamental search which is not directly

related to a concrete application. Creating means discovering the
means inventing a reality without any heed to realism.
Thus, the object(ive) of art is not equivalent to the finished and
defined art object.
This is the basic aim of this Free Art License:
to promote and protect artistic practice free from the rules of
themarket economy.

Alex Farquharson

“At one time artists had only to whisper into the ear of the King or Pope to 
have political effect. Now they must whisper into the ears of millions of 
										Jeff Koons

The Communications Department presents a range of ways artists respond to 
the omnipresence / omnipotence of corporate images.

The word ‘Lifestyle’ evokes branded lives, as if marketers have succeeded 
where avant-garde artists, who sought a fusion of art and life, failed. Like 
art, brands now communicate through every available media onto every 
available surface - the conventional billboard or magazine ad is to modern 
marketing techniques what painting or sculpture is to contemporary art. At 
the same time, like much ambitious art of the last century, the big brands 
have moved in on all aspects of our public and private lives and values, be 
it education, government, spirituality, welfare, health, the arts, public 
space, the environment, identity, subculture, political resistance. The  
most successful have acquired the aura of universal abstract truths: Coke, 
we know, is ‘the real thing’, and Diesel’s ‘for successful living’ (Liam 
Gillick attempts to paint true Coke brown in his neo-Platonic wallpainting 
“Inside now, we walked into a room with Coca-Cola walls”).

What is left for the artist to do, and what space is there left to occupy? 
Are corporations the master communicators today, in the way that artists 
were when they were in the service of monarchs and the church? Is it 
possible to act outside brand influences, or can their messages and systems 
be re-appropriated and détourned? Are artists able to clear the 
smokescreens? Where do art, advertising and activism begin and end, and what 
are their ‘relational aesthetics’?

Some artists in the Communications Department appear seduced by the 
brilliance and sophistication of the most innovative brands, leaving viewers 
to decide for themselves  whether their appropriations and alliances are a 
form of political critique, or deconstruction of what are conventionally 
regarded as the differences between art and advertising. In the trajectory 
running from Jeff Koons to Art Club 2000 to Bernadette Corporation and Carey 
Young, the distinctions between the conceptual practices of artists and 
those of corporate image-makers seem entirely eroded, suggesting that the 
notion of the avant-garde is now coporately owned. The Communications 
Department features Koons’s late 80s Art Magazines Ads, AC2K’s mid 90s 
fashion shoots (Gap  etc), and Bernadette’s on-going fashion magazine ‘Made 
in the USA’.

Young creates a new work for the show - a 'visioning workshop' held between 
a leading business strategist and the gallery directorship, with the aim of 
imagining new market possibilities for the gallery by questioning existing 
assumptions about art and the artist. The work, which will be for sale 
during the show, will exist in the gallery as the videoed documentation and 
detritus of the meeting.

®™ark are a legally constituted corporation acting as an umbrella company on 
the Internet for anti-corporate activists, matching ‘culture jamming’ 
proposals with funders and implementors. Stanley Donwood and Tchock have 
turned EMI’s exhaustive marketing report on the success or otherwise of 
their promotional artwork for Radiohead into embossed gallery wallpaper. 
Martha Rosler’s film ‘Chile on the road to NAFTA’ adopts the aesthetics of 
the road movie to ask what is free about international free trade alliances. 
Alex Veness* shows paintings commissioned from  commercial artists working 
in Export Processing Zones in China of photographs of workers performing 
menial tasks on the yachts and estates of the super affluent in Antigua.

The Medea group plot the covert web of corporate and political  alliances 
determining the flow of global capital (and, in addition, the art world’s 
own networks), on promotional display panels. Imprint 93’s ready-made, an 
extraordinary VIP list for ‘Die Young Stay Pretty’ at the ICA, is a sign of 
how the corporate ethos is beginning to be applied to the marketing of art 
in public venues - gone are the days of press officers; the phenomenon of 
Communications Departments in galleries and museums implies that art itself 
doesn’t communicate, or that institutions would rather it didn’t.

The ubiquity and persuasiveness of brands, and the question of what space is 
left for the artist, are perhaps most concisely considered by two of the 
least socio-political works in the Department: Richard Hawkins’s collage of 
Marky Mark at pelvic level wearing Calvin Kleins surrounded by a 19th 
century print of a romantic seascape; and a small floor sculpture consisting 
of the white underwear elastics of every one of Gareth Jones’s Calvin 
Kleins. These physically modest works suggest new formal / private / 
symbolic identities for this powerful brand that weren’t in the advertiser’s

Subject: Mark Amerika Retrospective



BOULDER, Colorado, July 2, 2001 -- Digital artist, novelist and web
publisher Mark Amerika, Founding Director of the Alt-X Online Network,
will have his first Japanese retrospective at the ACA Media Arts Plaza in
Tokyo, Japan. "Avant-Pop: The Stories of Mark Amerika" showcases much of
the early work Amerika pioneered during the Nineties. The
exhibition will launch on July 1, 2001 and run through September 10, 2001.

Amerika, who was recently named a "Time Magazine 100 Innovator" as part of
their continuing series of features on the most influential artists,
scientists, entertainers and philosophers into the 21st century, is the
creator or principial investigator of many Internet art projects including
GRAMMATRON, PHON:E:ME, HOLO-X, ALT-X, and the recent How To Be An Internet
Artist, all of which will be featured in the "Avant-Pop" exhibition in
Tokyo. A complete catalogue of essays and interviews with Amerika will
appear online in both English and Japanese translation.

According to Amerika, "The notion of an Avant-Pop cultural practice
evolved from my early work with artists, writers and critics in both
America and Japan, so it's only fitting that my first major show in Tokyo
would reflect this transnational cultural phenomenon and its effect on
both digital art and literature."

As part of the "Avant-Pop" exhibition, Amerika will be invited to Tokyo by
the Graphic Arts Society of Japan where he will present his work to the
general public.

Tracing Amerika's rapid emergence into the contemporary art world, web
mavens, art critics, historians and web surfers the world over have seen
his multi-media narratives work their way into various art and writing
scenes while being distributed through a wide array of formats including
hypertext, 3-D VRML environments, mp3 concept albums, ebooks, Palm Pilots,
live digital dramaturgy, and highly-acclaimed published novels.

His GRAMMATRON project ( was developed while he
was a Creative Writing Fellow and Lecturer on Network Publishing and
Hypertext at Brown University. Released in June 1997, it is one of the
most widely accessed art sites on the World Wide Web and in 2000 was one
of the first works of Internet art to ever be selected for the prestigious
Whitney Biennial of American Art.

Amerika was recently appointed to the Fine Arts faculty at the University
of Colorado at Boulder where he has been developing a cutting-edge Digital
Art curriculum. He is presently producing a new cross-media narrative
project, FILMTEXT, that will be a hybridized online/offline "story
experience" created as a net art site, a museum installation, a multimedia
ebook, and a series of live performances. One version of FILMTEXT will
appear in another upcoming retrospective of his work at the ICA in London
later this year.

The "Avant-Pop: The Stories of Mark Amerika" exhibition will be available
to the public at, as of July 1st, and is
sponsored by the Computer Graphics Society of Japan and the Agency for
Cultural Affairs in Japan.

The show is being curated by noted Net Art curator You Minowa.

Media Project - <>
- ------------o)----------------
This project has been a long time coming - it's huge. Apparently the BBC
up to something similar and it's going to be about 6 episodes.

I think the way the underground version can be better is by talking to
people that we actually involved in the whole root of it. It's easy to
punters who were swept up in the Rave and free party explosion. Some of
pioneers are easy to find that Colston-Talyor or whatever his name is
probably has an agent.

There have been some good books as well. Altered States and a new age
traveller book had good chapters on the early free party/traveller
cross-over. We'll try to get some background text information on the web


Now things have moved on a bit - free parties are pretty commonplace in
UK and have lost a bit of the rebellious nature. It will be good to

But Is it a victory for common sense or does the fact that the parties
to be small and sensible mean that a lot of the energy and power to
people's minds" has gone?
please comment on this.....

Free festivals are extremely rebellious in Europe. Have a look at what's

happening in France at the moment here. But some of the original spiral
pionneers who brought the music and movement to Europe are so disgusted
the lack of environmental respect of some ravers that they want to
disassociate themselves from the whole scene.

So are the French authorities justified in outlawing freeparties if the
people involved can't clear up after themselves?
Or are they taking advantage of negative media coverage of some events
end up a mess, and then outlawing all free gatherings despite the fact
most of them leave no trace of rubbish and end safely?
please comment on this.....

This summer sees a massive tour of the USA of free party sound systems
culture. What will happen here? Will the virus finally take root in a
way [outside of the SFBay area] in the States? The Rave movement is
but up to now has been a parody of "Kandy Ravers", a more commercial,
shallower, more innane approach to the whole deal.

Can free parties save AmeriKKKa from a future of increasing fuel
irresponsibility and international seperatism/exploitation?
Will the tour of the US this summer make Candy ravers wake up and
the miliarist society of which they are a product?
Tune in next month or more importantly use the comment board

Media/ Internet Project-

It's an online community providing useful communication tools.

It's a project that runs really close to the heart of what network 23
was created to try to do. A fully interactive communication channel.
Communication should be able to create a response in the person
it - and when that happens, it's great if they can come right back with
their own message. So this is exactly what Message and discussion boards
But this project takes the concept into something that is presented in a
of a nicer way. They've organised a Festival using this system and it
seems to work pretty well! The way it's written makes it really
to others as well.

The main project is <> It's a completely
volunteer run and maintained and provides mailing lists, webspace, and
interactive forums for those interested and involved with alternative
culture. The most exciting part of, in my opinion are

the wikis, which are collections perl-driven cgi pages which can be
edited, so that ANYONE reading a page on a wiki can add to it or change
content or make new pages. (Now how's that for an autonomous website?)

There are two wikis:

The Festival Wiki--

The Mission Statement Wiki (which would be of more interest and
to n23 folks, as the festival wiki was rather specific to a particular
purpose of organization)


I really think wikis are a radical new way to autonomize the web. They
very new developments (started up only a couple years ago) but have been

mostly used in technology and coding related fields. I think it's time
learned how autonomous they can be.
