                    BAD SUBJECTS 2001-2002

                       CALL FOR ESSAYS

BAD SUBJECTS is entering its tenth season of publication as a journal of
the left and a collective.  Bad Subjects seeks to revitalize progressive
politics.  We think too many people on the left have taken their
convictions for granted.  So we challenge progressive dogma by encouraging
readers to think about the political dimension to all aspects of everyday
life.  We seek to broaden the audience for leftist and progressive
writing, through a commitment to accessibility and contemporary relevance.  
Bad Subjects publishes both hardcopy and online editions, with
approximately 100,000 online readers monthly.  The Bad Subjects website is

Most of our issues are dedicated to particular topics, and the topics of
our next five issues have been listed below together with contact
information. Most issues also contains essays on other topics too, so feel
free to submit an article even if it doesn't seem to fit an upcoming
topic.  For general queries, contact the Bad Subjects editors at


There's nothing quite as "everyday life" as television in America.  It's
so everyday that countries like Bhutan, which only recently acquired
television, are concerned about threats to their cultural uniqueness.  
The average American television program has become a transnational source
of hegemony and monoculture.

Rather than simply saying "Kill your television", Bad Subjects would
rather ask questions.  In what ways does television either reinforce or
challenge the status quo?  Are issues of difference, such as queer life or
criminal life, covered in ways that are or can be seen as revolutionary?  
Or, to make it more personal, did you ever watch a program on television
and think "I'm not the only one ... how cool."

Tune in, set the volume loud, and think about your favorite programs.  
Transmit your essays to the Television issue programming directors, Paul
Ish <> and Cynthia Hoffman <>.  
September 4, 2001 submission deadline.


American progressives used the term 'police state' to protest state and
federal repression of the civil rights and anti-war movements in the
1960s. Perhaps the best-known example of the police state in action was
the FBI's COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program), which was directed
against the American Indian Movement in the 1970s, and at sympathizers of
Latin American revolutionary movements and environmental groups during the
late 1980s.

More recently, the term came back into vogue during the 1990s to describe
the increasingly repressive policies of the Clinton Administration, which
opened its administrative tenure with Waco and concluded it with a
staggering record of funding for police and prisons.

The Police State issue of Bad Subjects addresses how this concept of
government can be applied in the current day and age, following the
so-called decline of the nation-state and the advent of globalization in
the post-Cold War era. Could Marx's often prophesized "withering away of
the state" mean that the government will abandon violent means to maintain
social order? Or will repressive state functions endure as held-over,
consolidated remainders of nation-state authority? Are we now living in a
global society of security, where a transnational diffusion of corporate
power is maintained by a combination of regional security cooperation
associations, like NATO, and personal information-gathering strategies?

The possibilities are endless. Submit your essays to issue editors Megan
Shaw Prelinger <> and Joel Schalit
<> by October 15, 2001.

CRUISING (Issue 59)

When the Left takes on the character of a global carnival, traveling from
site to site to lob rocks at corporate overlords and smash the state -- or
at least, dematerialize it -- mobility is more important than ever.  
While college students emerge from Union Summers, Marxists like Toni Negri
raise the on-the-road Wobblies as the left-most model of organization.  
As capital goes cruising, so goes the left.

The Cruising issue wants stories about the relationship of traveler to
terrain, and the relationship of fellow travelers to protest movements
that have put much of the bite back in the Left.  New Autonomists and
their critics can cruise and sex each other up in our pages, and we'll all
get our freaks on.

Who cruises where, how, and why? And who cruises whom?  Cruising is all
about movement, but the movements are many.  Ships range about the seas;
men cruise one another; big vehicles find their cruising altitudes and
cruising speeds.  Bad Subjects seeks essays that capture the mobile spirit
of the times in travel, in rebellion, in chasing sex.  Whether you're
riding through life on cruise control, looking for love in all the wrong
places, gunning your motor through fast and furious streets, or denouncing
those who are cruisin' for a bruisin', we want to hear from you.

Tell us about your sex life and political life, and where they met.  From
Tom Cruise to Cruise missiles, the subject matter is wide open.  Drive an
idea by Aaron Shuman <> or Jonathan Sterne
<>.  Submission deadline November 30, 2001.


It is no exaggeration to say that immigration is one of the globe's most
pressing political issues. Across the world, immigration -- how to control
it, its desirability, who should be allowed to do it -- has become a hotly
disputed topic.

The Immigration issue will investigate the various forms that these
politics of immigration have adopted across the world. It will pay
particular attention to the experiences of the many parties involved in
the migration process, from the immigrants crossing the multiple borders
that define contemporary political space to those left behind, to the
residents of the receiving countries, to the politicians and activists
involved in defining the contours of the contemporary politics of
population flow.

Possible essay topics include: borders, citizenship, violence against
immigrants, border control and the policing of borders, flows of people,
money, ideas, commodities across borders both real and imagined,
narratives of immigration in film and other pop cultural media, immigrant
political and cultural representation, immigrants in the public sphere,
political mobilization around immigration issues, multiculturalism,
anti-immigration politics, sex tourism.

Bad Subjects editors Frederick Aldama <>, John Brady
<>, and Robert Soza
<> will edit this issue.  January 31, 2002
submission deadline.


The daily injuries of authority structures and social discipline under
global capitalism proliferate continuously.  Yet while the deprivations of
poverty are being dismissed as violence in their own right, the deployment
of state violence has been elevated to new heights of romantic heroism.  
Racial, sexual and class violence in the multi-billion-dollar
entertainment and music industries normalizes coercive violence by the
state apparatus.

Between the Pentagon and Hollywood, producing the means and promotional
images of violence have become US export industries par excellence.  
Globalization arrives inseparable from guns or stories of men and weapons
in service to the nation-state.  Representations of violence against 'bad
subjects' are being marketed as ideological legitimization for its use,
and agents of social domination generate demands for an aestheticized
violence that fits political specifications.  But 'bad subjects' can't
leave their reality cinema or turn off the TV once bullets start flying:
we are both the audience and the subjects.

Violence -- even where a defensive or liberational necessity -- is
quintessentially ugly. Its representation involves expressive choices that
collectively constitute an aesthetic that turns such ugliness to political
purposes.  This issue of Bad Subjects examines how the aesthetics of
violence manifest themselves under the terms of contemporary transnational
capitalism.  To whose benefit are bodies being mutilated on screens and on
streets?  How do dominant cultures perpetuate their power through
representations of physical domination in action?  What happens when
violence becomes a consumer item?  How did we come to enjoy the sight of
violence so, how do we love it so?

Bad Subjects invites violent prose fits on these topics.  Contact Arturo
Aldama <> or Joe Lockard <>
March 15, 2002 submission deadline.

Subject: re: Switch Announces New ISSUE: V7N1

Spring/Summer 2001

Switch is proud to announce a new Spring/Summer 2001 issue, Social
Networks II, v7n1( Taking inspiration from our
previous issue, Social Networks, v6n2, Switch continues the investigation
of what social, networks, and social networks means in relationship to
contemporary art practice, new media, technology, and science.

In "Bacterial Cybernetics and PDAs" (or, why PDA shouldn't stand for
Personal Digital Animalculi) Benjamin Eakins proposes that the
communication and control structures of bacteria may serve as a useful
model for the interactions of wireless personal devices. Cindy Ahuna's
"Online Game Communities Are Social in Nature" looks at social
environments evolving from online games. In "Substantial Disturbance: An
Interview with Faith Wilding"  conducted in May of 2001, Brett Stalbaum
asks Faith Wilding about artworlds, collaboration, interventionist art,
and the models that lie behind activism and activist art today. From
another perspective on activism, James Morgan's "Virtual Political and
Cultural Activism" looks at the nature of electronic civil disobedience as
both an art practice and a political tool.
To the chagrin of the academic elite who even bother to notice, Thomas
Kinkade has built a multimedia empire based on a lifestyle brand of
Rockwellian simplicity and small town family values.  Matt Mays' "Thomas
Kinkade and the La-Z-Boy Aesthetic" explores the Kinkade phenomena, its
shaky financial underpinnings and the implications for the growing rift
between middle America. In contrast, Glen Sparer's "Art As Creative Virus
and Host in the work of Mel Chin" illuminates Mel Chin's unique ideology
on art as insertionary idea within a social realm.

Rob Riddle's "Dubwise: Sonic Networks and Experiments in Studied Chance"  
explores relationships of sounds and rhythms; stories, thoughts, emotions
and ideas that steep in the songs of a culture, giving the full concoction
a unique voice and flavor. Wendy Angel's "DiFi: Digital and Fiber" is a
text which explores a network of interrelationships between two
superficially disparate media. Digital and fiber are entwined
technologically, linguistically and socially.

Inna Razumova's "Interview with Victoria Vesna" focuses on Vesna's recent
collaborative project Datamining Bodies. In addition, Mark Gonzales'
"Databodies, Genitals, and Living Forever......An Interview with Victoria
Vesna"  addresses such topics as developing an information persona through
autonomous agents, social networks and databodies. Sheila Malone's "The
Man Behind The Bunny: An informal interview with Eduardo Kac" reveals
answers to popular ethical questions about science and art commingling in
a test tube.  Eduardo Kac traces his career and objectives as an artist in
pursuit of a dialogic perspective.
Nora Raggio's "Dancing on the Web, Dancing over the Ocean: An Interview
with Amy Critchett" discusses DANCING ON THE WEB, DANCING OVER THE OCEAN,
a multicultural performance that will take place between youth groups in
CA, USA and SENEGAL this summer and will culminate in a live performance
in San Jose on Labor Day weekend, 2001. Nora also interviews Lisa
Jevbratt, curator of the show "LifeLike," an interdisciplinary survey of
all things LifeLike--on the web, in the gallery, and in the theater. ( involving artists Elliot Anderson,
Marc Bohlen, Natalie Bookchin, Steve Dietz, Alex Galloway, Arijana Kaifes,
Diane Ludens, Eddo Stern, Lev Manovich, Ken and Jennifer McCoy, Mark Tribe
and Geri Wittig.

In a unique feature Joel Slayton and Glen Sparer review and interview
featured artists at SIGGRAPH 2001
( Also featured in our current
issue are projects from Cadre students, Dawn Ahlquist, Susie McKinnon, and
Rob Spain. Dawn Ahlquist's and Susie McKinnon's project,
digitally explores nonsensical cloud watching. Rob Spain's The Referential
Database ( is
a combination of Scripting and Mark up languages designed to analyze,
process and store data.

Social Networks II is a robust issue of exclusive interviews and unique
social explorations of cultural and technological concerns. We hope you
enjoy our latest endeavor.

            \/\  siggraph 01 - nn introduces neu bodies. [space] \ [space] xy kind

                 there was once a velveteen rabbit and in the beginning he was
                 really splendid. he was fat and bunchy as a rabbit should be;
                 his coat was spotted brown and white, he had real thread whiskers
                 and his ears were lined with pink sateen.
                 on christmas morning when he sat in the top of the boy's stocking
                 with a sprig of holly between his paws, the effect was charming.

                 .... the rabbit could not claim to be a model of anything for
                 he did not know that real rabbits existed.

                 .... "what is real?" asked the rabbit one day. "does it mean having
                 things that buzz inside you and a stick out handle?"
                 "real isn't how you are made" said the skin horse.
                 "it's a thing that happens to you. when a child loves you for a
                 long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you
                 then you become REAL. 
                 "does it hurt?" asked the rabbit.
                 "sometimes" said the skin horse for he was always truthful.

Subject: Telepolis presents "Shopping Windows II"

Telepolis presents
Shopping Windows Part II
The second part of the Internet art exhibition "Shopping Windows" has 
been launched.

The ongoing exhibition with the full title "Shopping Windows - net art 
after the age of e-commerce"  shows new works commissioned by 

"i.d.k.a.t." by lia 
"Untitled-Game version of 'My boyfriend came back from the war'" by 
"Expand, an interface" by Shu Lea Cheang

Lia's work  "i.d.k.a.t." is the latest in a series of works that "attempt to 
articulate mathematical and natural principles below a visual surface in an 
enjoyable and sometimes playful way ... the user can also be seen as an 
additional random-factor in the code which can help to create a more or 
less "organic" result."

With 'Untitled-Game version of "My boyfriend came back from the war"' 
Jodi ask us to enter the game zone for a remix of Olia Lialinas net art 
classic The game is based 
on the free game engine Wolfenstein.

Shu Lea Cheang's "Expand, an interface ... plays on digital frames vs. 
cinema frames ... The hyperlink hypernarrative is deemed obsolete as 
rational yields to E-motional in post-click netivity." In this version,  
image sequences are taken from Shu Lea Cheang's scifi digimovie 

Together with the artistic contributions of Part I, <Content=No Cache> 
by Giselle Beiguelman, "BallPool" by Matthew Fuller/  and 
"Waste_Words Their Weight & Frequency in London's Municipial 
Rubbish" by Harwood/, Shopping Windows is no complete.

electronic dissemination of its products;  scholarly research has 
been revolutionised by the resources of the internet including 
online publishing, email, scholarly lists, and the formation of new 
databases.  E-commerce is in the process of transforming the 
retail book trade.  What, in this context, is the future of the
