Subject: Interface - a festival of ideas

Hey there - Geert said I should send an announcement about Interface to this 
address, so here it is:


Interface 2002
A festival of ideas on Australia&#8217;s media, education, and democracy
20th-21st April, College of Fine Arts, Sydney

Interface has been created to bring together a diverse range of people to be 
challenged and inspired by new ideas, new alliances and new projects. This 
should be a unique event &#8211; a non-partisan conference exploring ideas from a 
diverse range of perspectives on the future of Australia&#8217;s media, education 
and democracy. 

Interface is a cross between a conference and a festival, with forums, 
panels, skills-based workshops, film screenings, and Slip~stitch - a cross-
campus competition of political artwork. All welcome. We mean all. We want to 
mix first years, activists, creative policy thinkers, politicians, jaded ex- 
politicians, journalists, artists, independent media makers, people who run 
commercial media, youth sector workers, postgrad students, people who work 
for local councils, bureaucrats, academics, culture jammers & advertising 
workers...and see what happens. 

We'll be covering a lot of issues in two days: anything from strategies for 
democratic renewal to sources of stereotyping in the media to practical 
workshops on media skills or project funding. We&#8217;re hoping that there will be 
a session to cater to every level of experience & interest, but also that no-
one will leave without having been challenged, confronted, and inspired. The 
full programme is available on our website: 

Keynote speakers include: 

Kristy Delaney - Youth Action & Policy Association, Mark Davis - Author of 
Ganglands, Margo Kingston &#8211; journalist @ SMH, Tim Watts &#8211; Director of 
Ozprospect, Ted Mack - former independent MP, Kerry Nettle - Greens Senator 
elect, Clover Moore - Independent MP, Matt Roberts - Young People & Public 
Space Project in Western Sydney, Brian Murnane - Argyle Community Housing 
Network, Bob Ellis - Author & Journalist, Craig Reucassel &#8211; Editor at The 
Chaser, Van Badham &#8211; Author of The Dole Diaries, Marcus Westbury &#8211; Founder of 
This is Not Art festivals & the Octapod, Graham Young &#8211; Editor of Darren Godwell - CEO Lumbu Indigenous Community 
Foundation, Kate Walsh &#8211; Aidwatch, James Their - Marketing manager at 
Australian Ethical Investment, Roslyn Dundas &#8211; ACT Democrats MP, John Tingle -
 NSW Shooters Party MLC, Ross Cameron - Liberal MP, Catherine Lumby &#8211; 
Journalist & Chair of media studies at Sydney University, Eva Cox UTS - 
author & academic, Fiona Stewart &#8211; CEO of and Ozprospect 
fellow, Lorna Clarkson - former K*grind employee, Maureen Cummuskey - 
Director, national Youth Media Awards, Gabrielle Kuiper - Independent Media

Media Unlimited
Todd Gitlin on How Media Overwhelm Our Lives
The April Anarchist Forum
For Immediate Release
Thursday, March 21, 2002

Contact: Bob Erler OR 212- 979- 8353

On Tuesday, April 9, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist
Forum welcomes Todd Gitlin giving a presentation on his new book
"Media Unlimited". Gitlin will discuss and document how we live in a
supersaturated mess of sounds and images directed at us by Big
Business and Big Government.  Invasion of our thoughts and emotions
are with us always: video games, elevator music, billboards, waiting
room TV, soundtrucks, the mobile phone, etc.  Gitlin, in addition to
his practical presentation, will give the whole a theoretical
underpinning by discussing the writings of such sociologists as Georg

Gitlin sees the unbridled media as working against the creation of the
opposite of global capitalism--what he calls "global civil society."
Today's overwhelming images and sounds have nothing to do with the
worldwide problems of disease, inequality, oppression, and
environmental poisoning.  In fact the noise works to the advantage of
the oligarchs.  Also, the media excesses show no sign of being
self-correcting or self-transforming.

Todd Gitlin is professor of culture, journalism, and sociology at New
York University. He has written many seminal books, including "Inside
Prime Time," "The Whole World is Watching," and "The Twilight of
Common Dreams."

After Gitlin's presentation, an open period of questions and
discussion will follow.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum on the 10th floor of 122
West 27th St. [between 6th and 7th Aves.], a short walk from the 28th
St. 1, 2, N, and R stops, the 34th St. B, D, Q and W stop, and the
23rd St. F and V stop.

There is no set fee for the presentation, but a contribution to aid
the LBC is requested. If you have questions, contact the LBC

Subject: Videoinstallation "This is what democracy...", Plattform, Berlin

(for English please scroll down)


2-Kanal-Videoinstallation von Oliver Ressler, 38 min., 2002

plattform. chausseestr 110/I. d-10115 berlin.
fon +49-30-280 46 973. fax +49-30-280 47 029
10.04.-10.05.02, öffnungszeiten: mi/do/fr 14-19 uhr
eröffnung: 10.04.02, 19 uhr

Die Videoinstallation "This is what democracy looks like!" thematisiert
Ereignisse rund um eine Demonstration am 1. Juli 2001 gegen das zu
diesem Zeitpunkt in Salzburg tagende World Economic Forum, einem
privaten Lobbyverein des Großkapitals.
"Milliardenschwere Deals, die wenigen Wohlstand und Reichtum, vielen
jedoch Ausbeutung und Armut bringen, werden auf diesen Treffen von den
selbst ernannten ,Global Leaders' unter Ausschluss der Öffentlichkeit in
die Wege geleitet. Um den ordnungsgemäßen Ablauf der ökonomischen
Globalisierung sicherzustellen, wurde der im Zentrum Salzburgs liegende
Tagungsort des WEF weiträumig abgesperrt und alle Demonstrationen bis
auf eine Stehkundgebung am Bahnhofsvorplatz verboten." (Auszug aus der
Einleitung des Videos)
Dieses Videoinstallation gibt einen Einblick in den Ablauf der ersten
"Anti-Globalisierungsdemonstration" in Österreich, die in der Folge der
medial viel beachteten Demonstrationen in Seattle, Prag, Davos, Quebec
und Göteburg stattgefunden hat. In dieser polizeilich verbotenen
Demonstration in Salzburg wurden 919 DemoteilnehmerInnen von der Polizei
eingekesselt und über sieben Stunden lang festgehalten.

Werden in den dominierenden medialen Darstellungen die TeilnehmerInnen
an den anti-kapitalistischen Protesten entweder als naive oder als
gewaltbereite Chaoten verunglimpft, nehmen sie in der Videoinstallation
"This is what democracy looks like!" hingegen die Rolle von aktiven
SprecherInnen ein. Mit sechs DemoteilnehmerInnen wurden Gespräche zu den
Ereignissen in Salzburg geführt. Die Einschränkung demokratischer
Grundrechte - die sich vor allem im Verbot zu demonstrieren oder der
Anhaltung hunderter Menschen im Polizeikessel zeigte - und das
Spannungsfeld zwischen der begrenzten physischen Gewalt einzelner
DemoteilnehmerInnen und der von der Staatsmacht ausgeübten strukturellen
und physischen Gewalt entwickeln sich dabei als zentrale Themen.
Ausschnitte aus den Gesprächen sind zu Videoaufnahmen montiert, die von
mir und (Video)AktivistInnen in Salzburg aufgezeichnet wurden. Die
Kameraperspektive entspricht dabei der Sicht der DemoteilnehmerInnen und
stellt eine unmittelbare Konfrontation der BetrachterInnen des Videos
mit den Geschehnissen her.

opening: 10.04.02, 7 pm

The video installation "This is what democracy looks like!" thematizes
the events of 1 July 2001 which took place surrounding a demonstration
against the World Economic Forum - a private lobbying organization of
major capital - which was meeting in Salzburg at the time.
"At those meetings, in the absence of the public, billion dollar deals
are set into motion by the self-appointed 'global leaders.' These deals
bring wealth and prosperity to a few, and exploitation and poverty to
many. To assure the orderly proceedings of economic globalization, the
conference facilities, located in the center of Salzburg, are largely
blocked off and all demonstrations are forbidden other than a rally at
the square in front of the train station." (Excerpt from the
introduction of the video)
This video installation gives insight into the course of events of the
first "anti-globalization demonstration" in Austria, held subsequent to
the demonstrations in Seattle, Prague, Davos, Quebec, and Gothenburg,
which all received a great deal of media attention. In this
demonstration in Salzburg, which was forbidden by the police, 919
demonstrators were encircled in a police blockade and detained for over
seven hours.

In the video installation "This is what democracy looks like!"
anti-capitalist demonstrators take the role of active spokespersons,
contrary to dominant media representations that denigrate them as either
naive or violent chaotic rowdies. Conversations about the events in
Salzburg were carried out with six demonstrators. The central themes
developed in the video are; the limitation of basic democratic rights -
which is shown mainly in the ban on demonstrating and the detainment of
hundreds of people in police encirclement - and the tension between the
limited physical force of a few demonstrators and the structural and
physical violence practiced by state power. Excerpts from the
conversations are put together with my own video recordings and those
from (video) activists in Salzburg. The camera angle corresponds with
the perspective of the demonstrators, thereby placing video viewers in
direct confrontation with the events.

collaborations between artists and writers?

 How do the online environment and other new media
tools modify the relationship  between writing,
language, imagery, culture, and ethnicity?

 How has online communication and coordination changed
art and writing?

 How are lines between art and literature blurring?

 What new ways are we using to communicate with art
and writing?

Media Deconstruction Kit Preview
Randall Packer

Debuts at the Thaw 2002 Festival of Video, Film and Digital Media
University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City
April 10 - 13

The Media Deconstruction Kit is a networked installation that 
confronts corporate control of mass media through the transformation 
from the one-to-many broadcast paradigm to the many-to-many form of 
interaction and manipulation. A project of Tel-SPAN, the telematic 
broadcasting channel of the US Department of Art & Technology, the 
Media Deconstruction Kit reconfigures, disorients, and amplifies the 
mis-information of live broadcast media into an immersive, sensorial, 
multimedia experience. Television graphics, news talk, advertising, 
sound bites, and political pundancy are transformed into a collaged 
rendering of disintegrated media, seductive audio textures, and 
telematic commentary (texts by Mark Amerika).

For this installation, a Preview version has been mastered on DVD 
consisting of recorded broadcast footage from CNN. The Preview 
demonstrates the way in which live material is reconfigured as a 
canonic, multi-layered video wall, while the network interaction of 
the Web viewer disrupts the live footage by superimposing the user's 
IP address. This insertion of the machine identity of the viewer is 
distributed over the Web (in the final version), in order to reverse 
the anonymity and powerlessness of the passive television viewer. 
Here, the viewer is invited to do more than click on the remote 
control; they are encouraged to playfully and collectively transform, 
manipulate, and explode the content of live broadcast television into 
a richly textured display of media, sound and pointed commentary.

The Media Deconstruction Kit is part of the Telemusic networked media 
project, a collaboration with computer music researcher and composer 
John Young, and was created with Max/MSP and Nato. A production of 
Zakros InterArts.

Subject: Stuff It Symposium in Zurich

please circulate widely and excuse cross posting

The Institute for Theory of Art and Design, Zurich cordially invites you to

Stuff It _ The Video Essay in the Digital Age
Symposium and Video Screenings

=46riday - Sunday, May 31 - June 2nd, 2002
at the migros museum for contemporary art

Stuff It_ an essential particularity of the video essay is the 
compression of time and levels of meaning, mediated through a dense 
configuration of image, text and sound tracks. Today, this 
multi-layered, discursive video genre situates itself in the context 
of new communications media and digital production which open new 
dimensions to image technologies and means of diffusion. The video 
essayist practice also responds in content to an increasingly complex 
society. Thus, the primary concern of audiovisual essayists is not to 
represent visible realities but to test conceptual connections 
through the articulation of rather untangible social and cultural 
transitions. The diverse ways in which this working method expresses 
itself in the combination of precise observation and recording, 
subjective narration, and theoretical reflection will be the subject 
of the symposium.

"Pulsing with tension, flesh pressed against metal, the routings of the
combat device course through the body as the film courses through the
projector. Careful breaths, quickening heartbeats, and the small
vibrations of the finger mix with the staccato of the gear-driven

Subject: The Identity in the American Art

The Contemporary Arts Center  - Skopje cordially invites you to the 
lecture and slide projection 

 “The Identity in the American Art”
Presenter: Mrs. Marjorie Devon
Wednesday, April 3, 2002 at 8.30 p.m. in the CIX Gallery.

Through the lecture and the slide projection of Mrs. Marjorie Devon, a
manager of the Tamarind the Art institute in New Mexico, USA, the
audience will be introduced to marking and the preserving of the
identity in the countries of the new world, before all in USA and Canada.
But at the same time the audience will be able to see the pushing to the
margins of certain groups and people and the artists who belong to these
groups in the frames of the American society.
This is mainly about artists who are pushed aside because of certain crisis of their identity
(lesbian and homosexual groups, the African-American community and women).
The presentation will also encompass a conversation on the American cultural tradition that is 
its inexistence and the impact of this phenomenon on the pushing aside
of the artists as a group.
