Postgraduate Training Course for




Apt (Arts PerformanceTheatricality)/PoPoK

InternationalProjects Workshop

2 December (on-linepreparations)/15 January - 15 June

DEADLINE: 15 November

In collaborationwith:

deSingel International ArtsCentre (Antwerpen), Aisthesis (Antwerpen) and the
Flemish Community(Education Dept.)


APT focuses on theatricality, not on theatre. On mediation, not onmedia.

APT sees theatricality as aprocess of mediation, as a tool.

APTwelcomes artists, theoreticians and projects from all artistic
disciplinesand all cultural roots to research this tool.

APT encourages applications from all over the world to share ideasand
practices in the field of theatricality.

APT is not interested in questioning theatre as an artisticdiscipline, for
this question tends to veil the simple fact that theatre iseverywhere: in
politics, in sports, entertainment and everyday-life.

In ourdaily encounters where the digital and analogue mingle, making
meaningrequires all our senses. Speaking and hearing are no longer able to
convey,grasp or explain our mediated world. Could theatricality be a tool
torespond to this mediated reality? In studying theatricality - therealm of
supersenses - we might find new matrixes to perceive the realitiesthat we
are all living in.

We are inviting you to come and reflect,research, re-evaluate, rethink and
reinvent process, place, production andperformance. The agenda is twofold:
concentrating both on the process ofdoing research on your work, and on
theatricality as a process of mediation for that work.

You are invited todevelop your individual project within this collective and
individualreflection about the what, how and why of theatricality. The aim
is not toget to a definition of what theatricality `really is`, but what it
can beto you.

We do not propagate an APT definition of 'theatricality' and wewill not let
the confined space of this flyer push forward some chosen few- at (from 20 September onwards) we dip at random intothe
wealth of possible views. During our time together, we willtake concepts of
theatre and performances and their (sometimes hidden)presence in various
disciplines as a point of departure for discussingconcrete examples: the
projects proposed by each participant, completedwith
guests/projects/films/visits/texts & images provided by thetutors.


APT offers you a meeting point with other young artistsfrom different
artistic disciplines (performance, music, architecture,visual arts, film,
video, theory) who have a hunch of what theatricalitycan mean to them.

The course will explore important actual issues oftheatricality by
confronting the participants with artists andtheoreticians of very different
disciplines to discuss and explore theirstrategies and notions of
'theatricality'.ÊThis makes guests,presentations, visits to studioÕs and
expert places,performances and exhibitions a central part of the programme.

As we consider youto be the master of your own work, the course encounters
will always relateto your specific project and questions. ThatÕs why there
is not a listof names on hand. These will be discussed during online

To giveyou an idea of the APT-approach, here are some of the people that
weinvited last year in our five week long Rotterdam 2001

Emil Hrvatin(theatre theoretician and director) and Maaike Bleeker
(dramaturge andlecturer) (curators), Paul Koek (composer/performer and
theatre director),Mike Pearson (archaeologist working in theatre), Maarten
Struys(architect), Iratxe Jaio (painter working with terrorism), CyrusFrisch
(independent film- and theatremaker), Michael Burke (philosopher),Dragan
Zivadinov (theatre revolutionary), Rob Van Kranenburg (interactivemedia

Rob van Kranenburg will also catalyse this yearÕscollective sessions &
friday night parlour. He is Flow editor at Doors ofPerception, works at the
cultural-political centre de Balie and is aguestlecturer at St. Joost
(Breda) and Willem de Kooning (Rotterdam). He is based in Ghent, at the
simsim research group.(

APT participants will also have theopportunity to relate to other research
programmes, artists andinstitutions in the field of theatricality. As an
instance of this, APTwill collaborate with the Theatre Studies and Aisthesis
Research Centre(University Antwerp) in an international seminar on theatre
andtechnology, curated by Kurt Vanhoutte, with guests lecturers and
performingartists from Dublin, Lubljana, Berlin and Antwerp.


'Theatricality' is a project 'workshop'. It takes sevenmonths of intensive
work. The whole process should result in a tutorial,advisory framework for
your individual project. As a result your individualwork-in-progress takes
place in the context of an internationallyoriented, inter-disciplinary group
of participants, possible collaborators,mentors, and posible co-producers.


* Research and work on your project.

* Individual sessions with your tutor(s) structuring andquestioning this

*Exchange views and swap experiences (off and online) on how

* Warming up/cooling downsessions: starting/ending the day with a common
mental orphysicalÊexperience in which the idea of `gathering` is explored.

* Visits from experts & trips to expertplaces.

* Friday night parlour.

* Speak & eat: guests are invited forlunch, to comment on artistic, ethical,
social, cultural... aspects of theprojects.

* Parties, performances,exhibitions, seminars, lectures, cooking,...


The workshop starts with an online prologue (2 December 2002 - 15January
2003) and runs until 15 June 2003. In the course of these 7 monthsyou will
work both in Antwerpen (3 periods of 4 weeks) and at home. Throughdigital
worksheets online preparations will start the moment youget selected: from 2
December onwards. Planned periods in Antwerp: 15January-7 February; 10
March-4 April and 19 May-15 June. (subject tochange)


APT provides a research zone that is both physical andvirtual. In the course
of 6 months you will work in Antwerp and at home.During three '4
week-sessions' in Antwerp, all participants are invited todesign their own
laboratory, in which they will organise theirartistic research, reflect on
it and make it public. In between sessions,at home, 'Theatricality' will
function as an interactive website. We willorganize feedback, dialogue and
discussion through online worksheets, chatsand one on one mailings with the
tutors and guests.

Performing theaudience: at APT the spectators are to be `invented` too.
Making up apublicity campaign, distributing images, making a website and
trying toinfluence the way a performance is perceived: we will have to
design theinstitutional rules that define the laboratory as a
performancespace. Presentations can take place whenever necessary but are
never a goalas such. APT opts for the process, not the climax.


APT (Arts Performance Theatricality) is a postgraduatetraining course in the
performing arts. APT starts in January 2004 inAntwerp as a full time
training course.Up to that time small and biggerprojects, round-table
conversations and intensive workshops areorganised, in collaboration with
partners such as 'Rotterdam 2001,CulturalCapital of Europe', 'deSingel

International Arts Centre'(Antwerpen-Belgium), 'Aisthesis Research
Centre'(Antwerpen-Belgium), the 'Piet Zwart Institute for
VisualArts'(Rotterdam-Holland) and 'DasArts' (Amsterdam-Holland).

You can take a closer look at the workshop we organisedlast year as part of
the 'Werkstad in Las Palmas' programme during'Rotterdam 2001, Cultural
Capital of Europe'. This will give you more orless an idea of what to
expect. ( from 20September onwards, before that


* The workinglanguage is English: a certain degree of fluency is required,
both oral andin writing.

Subject: user_mode = emotion + intuition in art + design

Dear All,

I thought that this would be interesting to some nettimers.  This is the 
first call for papers for an event at Tate Modern called 'user_mode', which 
looks at the subject of emotional engagement within interactive art and 
design.  We would be very interested to receive some expressions of 
interest from members of the list who may have ideas for presentations, 
performances for the event.

I hope this is of interest.

Best wishes

= emotion + intuition in art + design

an international symposium and festival
9 - 11 May 2003
Tate Modern
London, UK

A collaboration between Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design 
<> and Tate Modern <>

user_mode is an international, multidisciplinary symposium looking at 
interactive art and design practices. It will examine one of the key 
concerns for many creative practitioners - engaging the emotions of the 

Artists, designers and critics frequently refer to "emotional engagement". 
What is meant by this? Is it immersion, rapture, agency, reflection? This 
question is crucial to interactive art and design practice where the user's 
response is sensitive to context and can not only influence the form and 
content of the work but also, in some cases, the future direction of 
technological development. user_mode will aim to locate techniques, 
instruments, contexts and terms to provide clearer insight into this theme.

user_mode will provide an opportunity to hear from internationally renowned 
artists, designers and theorists as well as emerging practitioners. It is 
intended that concerts, performances and drop-in studios featuring artists, 
designers, architects, researchers and technicians informally presenting 
works in progress will complement presentations and panel discussions.

Key contributors will include: Sara Diamond (Director, Media and Visual 
Arts Banff, Canada), Stuart Jones (composer/performer/interactive sound 
artist based in the UK), Lev Manovich (New Media theorist), David Ross 
(Director of the Beacon project New York, and formerly Director of San 
Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Whitney Museum of American Art) and 
Tobi Schneidler (Architect, Interactive Institute, Stockholm)

___user_mode : thematics

How do you engage and sustain the interest of the user/visitor/player in an 
interactive experience whether it be reflexive architecture, interactive 
film, art installation, responsive environment, computer games, 
performance, product, communication or experience design?

Questions for discussion may include: does interactivity promise a more 
profound experience than more traditional responses to art and design? What 
does it add? How is it measured? Does interactive work offer more than 
conventional cinema, theatre, painting or architecture in emotional terms? 
Is there more sense of participation?

user_mode will seek to identify models of emotional engagement, aiming to 
question, extend and rework the most topical of the categories outlined below:

- - Emotion as content or theme of the work
- - Emotion as agency and control
- - Emotion as subjective experience
- - Emotion as a cognitive and physical process
- - Emotion as an element of discovery learning in interactive exhibitions
- - Emotion and navigation in architecture
- - Emotion and narrative in film
- - Emotion and gaming
- - Emotion in sound composition and audio environments

___user_mode: submissions

We are now calling for papers from artists, designers, theorists, 
technologists, scientists, architects, musicians, philosophers and others 
interested in this field.

The call for papers is aimed at all disciplines that can contribute to this 
discussion. Fresh perspectives will be sought by bringing together 
different disciplines to share their views.

You are invited to submit a short proposal for a 30-minute 
visual/audio/verbal presentation in the conference or a performance or a 
studio demonstration. Your proposal should include the following information:

1. Name
2. Location
3. Contact Details
4. URL (if applicable)
5. 250 word proposal
6. Type of proposal (is it a paper, a studio demonstration or performance?) 
7. 200 word biography

Proposals must be sent via email. Please include: "user_mode proposal" in 
the subject line. The following formats will be accepted:

* plain text format in the body of an email.
* RTF attachments (rich text format)

Support material can be sent via post, if necessary. Please contact us if 
you wish to post support material.

by intima | virtual base
emotional solution for sad&lonely art
antwerpen, belgië - november 2002

- - - -

intimacy = (her) obsession | fantasy = deeper & deeper
obsession = dis/appearing | frustration = repeating
loop = danger | one = not enough x 3 | me = her web cam 

- - - -

I am fully equipped for the highly emotional experience. I disappear deeper and deeper into the landscape, with the frustrations opening in 
the subtle and repetitive rhythm of empty images and voices. Everything is short, clean, just the basics. I travel through the emotional 
labyrinths that emerge from the intestines of closed networks. I share the rhythm of these parallel, flickering landscapes revealed in front of 
me, intriguing me, seducing me with their spaceless speech and imagery. No emotion, just a glimpse of it, no feeling, just the pain of it, 
no happiness, just the sound of it, no talk, just the word of it, no passion, just the climax of it. The intimate landscapes play with my 
illusions of possession and boundlessness, surprising me with their inner history and touching me with their surprising analogies. A 
structure of liquid emotion, a fusion of the visible and the invisible. The bonds between the incongruities and spanned incommensurables 
may seem playful, but they are not innocent. Playfulness is just a mask for a very serious adventure taking place at the intimate 
landscapes. There is a clear threat of emotional attachment. Who provokes me and who gets provoked? Who fills me with lust and who is 
lustful? Who is dynamic and who is frozen? Danger resides in the intimate dismals, personal dismemberment.

Subject:  URGENTE El instituto depertamental de bellas artes de cali en peligro de cierre

Noviembre  06 de 2002

El INSTITUTO DEPARTAMENTAL DE BELLAS ARTES  se ha visto seriamente amenazado
y afectado por los comunicados que en días anteriores el Señor Alberto Hadad
Lemus, Secretario de Hacienda del Departamento, ha hecho públicos con
respecto a la reducción presupuestal del 35% para esta entidad. De igual
forma ha recomendado la fusión de algunas Facultades de esta Institución con
la Universidad del Valle.

Los estudiantes de las diferentes Facultades pronunciamos nuestra
inconformidad con respecto a estas decisiones, ya que estas  son  un crimen
contra la educación publica y contra el desarrollo artístico y cultural de
la región y la Nación, decisiones que además atentan contra la Constitución.
Bellas Artes es la única institución del sur occidente Colombiano que se
especializa  en la enseñanza de las artes y que tiene además los diferentes
niveles educativos Colombianos.

Los estudiantes de las Facultades de Artes Visuales y Aplicadas, Artes
Escénicas y Música hemos decidido realizar unas jornadas de trabajo
permanentes dentro de la Institución, suspendiendo las actividades
académicas, hasta que el Estado nos garantice que nuestra entidad no estará
amenazada ni por recorte ni por fusiones. Estas jornadas llamadas “EL ARTE
SE TOMA A BELLAS ARTES”, se realizaran durante las 24 horas del día y
solicitamos a los medios de comunicación hacer un llamado a la comunidad
Colombiana  para que apoye esta movilización estudiantil y la defensa de un
patrimonio que importa a toda la nación.




Santiago de Cali
November 6th, 2002

The Instituto Departamental de Bellas Artes (School of Arts) has been
seriously threatened and affected by the communications that Mr. Alberto
Hadad Lemus, Secretary of the Finances for the Local Government, has made
public in previous days concerning the budget reduction of a 35% for our
entity. Equally worrying for us the fact that he strongly recommends the
fusion of some of the faculties of the Institution with Valle University.
We, the students of the different faculties express our unconformity
regarding these decisions, hence these are a crime against public education
and against the artistic and cultural development of our region and that of
the Nation being these, decisions which further more go against our
Constitution. Bellas Artes is the only institution of the South western part
of Colombia that is specialized in the teaching of these Arts and at the
same time includes all the different educational levels in Colombia.
We, the students of the faculties of Visual and Applied Arts, Scenic Arts
and Music, have decided to carry out permanent working programs or schedules
inside the Institution, suspending the academic activities until the State
government guarantees that our Institution or entity will not continue to be
threatened by neither a reduction of the budget nor by the fusioning of it
with another entity. These schedules programmed called “ARTS TAKES BELLAS
ARTES”, will be on going during 24 hours a day, and we ask of the media to
request of the Colombian community to support this movement of the students
and also for the defence of a patrimony that concerns the whole nation.



Santiago de Cali, 7 de noviembre del 2002


Comunicado 002

Cientos de estudiantes de Bellas Artes, de las facultades de artes visuales
y aplicadas, artes escénicas y música, preocupados por la reducción de un
35% en el presupuesto destinado al Instituto y la posibilidad de que algunas
facultades sean fusionadas con la Universidad del Valle, hemos decidido
sentar nuestra opinión frente a estos hechos.

Desde las 10 de la mañana del 6 de noviembre del 2002, nos hemos tomado
pacíficamente las instalaciones de la Institución, suspendiendo las
actividades académicas y reemplazándolas por jornadas de manifestación
artística, afines al tratamiento como personas de artes y no de guerra, tal
como nos han enseñado en este ente educativo.

Nos manifestaremos todos los días con conciertos, performance,
representaciones teatrales, exposiciones y muestras audiovisuales abiertas
al público, como un ejemplo de que con arte y no con imposiciones violentas
se es posible hacer pensamiento, cultura y bien por nuestro país.

Pedimos a los medios de comunicación, su apoyo a esta jornada pacífica en
pro del mantenimiento de Bellas Artes como lugar de encuentro y nacimiento
de opciones artísticas tan apremiantes en la conformación de la
idiosincrasia y el pensamiento de una región y una nación.

PDT: requerimos la urgente colaboración de la ciudadanía con alimentos de
primera necesidad como son azúcar, café, leche, arroz, sal, aceite,
enlatados, etc. Agradecemos la iniciativa de todo aquel que desee unirse a
esta causa de una manera pacífica y artística. Para las respectivas
donaciones por favor acercarse a las instalaciones del conservatorio.




Desde el inicio de la respuesta estudiantil ante la crisis que afecta al
IDBA, hemos producido dos comunicados a la opinión pública. En el primero
manifestamos nuestra inconformidad frente a los comunicados del Secretario
de Hacienda del Departamento, inconformidad que tiene su expresión en una
protesta pacífica y artística que hemos llamado “El Arte se toma a Bellas
Artes”. Mediante el segundo comunicado especificamos de qué manera la
actividad académica regular se reemplazaría por jornadas artísticas y
muestras abiertas al público. Siendo el arte nuestra voz, así fue como
entendimos el disenso y el desacuerdo.

En este tercer comunicado los estudiantes de Bellas Artes sentamos nuestra
voz de denuncia frente al atropello que se plantea contra la Institución,
que está siendo vista en meros términos financieros sin considerar la
inversión social que, como entidad cultural, ésta provee al departamento y
la nación. La posibilidad de fusionar, así sea parcialmente, algunas
facultades de esta institución con las correspondientes en la Universidad
del Valle, es sencillamente algo que no consulta la complejidad pedagógica
que implicaría. Como estudiantes estamos muy preocupados ya que nadie nos
puede garantizarnos la continuidad coherente y consistente en la Universidad
del Valle. Es de total conocimiento la crisis que afronta dicha entidad y
los esfuerzos que sus diversas instancias llevan a cabo, desde hace muchos
años, para buscar salidas a sus problemas internos. ¿No supondría un fusión,
en las actuales circunstancias, la acentuación de un problema de dos y no
sólo de una institución?

Es así como formulamos nuestro rotundo rechazo a la reducción de presupuesto
y posible fusión defendiendo el IDBA que, como tal, tiene un nombre,
tradición, trayectoria y proyección.

En este momento, cuando nos planteamos la defensa de una institución pública
y la afirmación de la participación ciudadana en sus destinos, ha sido
inevitable recorrer las páginas de la Constitución Política de Colombia de
1991. la carta magna concede mérito y validez a nuestro reclamo. Es por eso
que exigimos se nos respeten los derechos consagrados en los artículos 2, 8,
68, 70 y 71 de la Constitución. He aquí la letra de los artículos, he aquí
el fundamento constitucional de nuestra protesta.
Artículo 2 Es fin esencial del Estado “facilitar la participación de todos
en las decisiones que los afectan y en la vida económica, política,
administrativa y cultural de la nación”.

Cuando nos reunimos a deliberar sobre los destinos de nuestra institución,
cuando salimos a la calle a informar, cuando hacemos arte para expresar
nuestro punto de vista, cuando hacemos todo eso, estamos participando. Ese
derecho, que es también deber, a la participación es al cual nos referimos

Artículo 8 “Es obligación del Estado y de las personas proteger las riquezas
culturales y naturales de la nación”
¿Más comentarios? El artículo es claro y su pertinencia indiscutible.

Artículo 68 “El Estado garantiza las libertades de enseñanza, aprendizaje,
investigación y cátedra.” Y más adelante “la comunidad educativa participará
en la dirección de las instituciones de educación”.

Arriba escribimos “uno entra a estudiar donde quiera y no donde lo metan”.
Creemos con firmeza que existe una sana libertad de elección en el momento
de preferir una institución a otra; es algo que tiene que ver con muy
relevantes factores como el tipo de currículo, la propuesta pedagógica, la
filosofía del centro educativo. Por otra parte, como comunidad escolar,
sentimos que hemos sido excluidos, por parte de distintas instancias de
gobierno, de la discusión y decisiones que se adelantan respecto del
presente y futuro de la institución.

Artículo 70 “La búsqueda del conocimiento y la expresión artística son
libres. Los planes de desarrollo económico y social incluirán el fomento a
las ciencias y en general a la cultura. El Estado creará incentivos para
personas e instituciones que desarrollen y fomenten la ciencia y la
tecnología y las demás manifestaciones culturales y ofrecerá estímulos
especiales a personas e instituciones que ejerzan estas actividades”.

No hay duda alguna para nosotros, los estudiantes, y tampoco para muchos
sectores ciudadanos, que el Instituto Departamental de Bellas Artes es uno
de los baluartes tanto de la pedagogía como de la proyección y defensa del
arte, no sólo del Valle del Cauca sino en toda Colombia. Ecos y noticia de
la labor del IDBA exceden las fronteras del país y llegan al ámbito
internacional. Rostro gentil, inteligente y justo de una nación en crisis,
Bellas Artes contribuye al mejoramiento de la percepción de los colombianos
ante el mundo.

A la fecha, a esta hora, el grupo de estudiantes de Bellas Artes ha recibido
numerosas manifestaciones de adhesión a nuestros motivos, en diversos
formatos como correos electrónicos, cartas de solidaridad, apoyo y
acompañamiento directo. Queremos destacar aquí la carta enviada por el
Hospital San Juan de Dios (Bienestar Social) en la cual se solidarizan con
nuestros esfuerzos para darle continuidad a esta institución, en sus
palabras “para bien de toda la juventud de la comarca y para el regocijo de
todos cuantos tenemos el privilegio de asistir muchas veces como invitados a
diversos eventos”. Esa es la invitación, la solidaridad con una causa justa.

Subject: Secretary Predicts Adoption of Artist Resolution

US Department of Art & Technology
Washington, DC

Press Secretary
=46or Immediate Release:  November 8, 2002

Secretary Predicts Adoption of Resolution
To Authorize Artistic Acts of Mediation

Washington, DC - Following intensive discussions in the US Department 
of Art & Technology, Global Virtualization Council, and their Joint 
Committee on Cultural Transformation and Paradigmatic Shifts, 
Secretary Randall M. Packer is predicting the adoption in the coming 
days of a new, powerful resolution "To Authorize the Use of Artistic 
Acts of Mediation," aimed at applying artistic forces of mediation in 
light of recent actions of the Bush Regime and the United Nations 
that threaten international insecurity.

Speaking to reporters after a closed-door meeting, Secretary Packer 
said he had received critical input and support from 
Secretary-General of the Global Virtualization Council, Luc 
Courchesne of Canada, Artist-Ambassador Chris Bowman of Scotland, 
Artist-Ambassador P=E9ter Frucht of Hungary, and US DAT Staff members: 
Jeff Gates, Deputy Secretary; Jack Rasmussen, Minister of Culture; 
William Gilcher, Envoy Plenipotentiary to the European Union and 
Latin America; Laura Coyle, Under Secretary for the Preservation of 
the Avant-Garde; Abe Golam, Director of the Office of Political and 
Economic Insecurity; Mark Amerika, Director of the Office of Freedom 
of Speech; and Lowell Darling, recently appointed Under Secretary of 
the Bureau of Alchemy for the Appropriation, Transformation, and 
Liberation of Anachronistic Political Systems.

Underscoring the gravity of the issue, Secretary Packer said, "It is 
a question of the Bush Regime's demonstrated capability and 
willingness to irrevocably engulf us all in hopeless despair, through 
a system extolling exploitation, consumption, corruption, and greed, 
and the extreme magnitude of harm that would result from such 
atrocities, combine to justify action by the US Department of Art & 
Technology and the Global Virtualization Council to defend humanity. 
The Resolution sends a strong message to the Bush Regime that failure 
to comply will have serious consequences, that they hold in their own 
hands the fate of their administration."

"We intend to have consultations as long as it takes to get to the 
bottom of the text," he added, predicting that "in the days to come 
the Council and Staff will be able to adopt a firm resolution giving 
artists the means to extend aesthetic inquiry into the outer world 
where ideas become real action. Through Collective Agency, our 
demands will be fused into a common resolution, which demands that 
the Bush Regime abandons its strategy of delay, evasion and 
noncompliance and promptly and strictly complies with all relevant 
resolutions. We will no longer tolerate this defiance."

In his remarks to the press, Secretary Packer predicted passage of 
the joint resolution by late next week, at which time he will deliver 
a speech at the US Capitol, to be broadcast over Tel-SPAN. He 
predicted that there would be unanimous passage of the Resolution, 
adding, "we look forward to that; we want to stop the Bush Regime, 
which the Resolution declares to be in "material and unacceptable 
breach of its international obligations." He urged the nation's and 
the world's artists "to take appropriate action, in accordance with 
their compassion for critical insight, the spectacle, and their 
distaste for the status quo, to change ineffective paradigms, to 
change the world=8A to prove that artists are not irrelevant!"

Secretary Packer also announced that the Joint Resolution, with 
"unified Staff and Council support behind us," would be published by 
Intelligent Agent (, the Web-based media arts 
journal, Christiane Paul, editor-in-chief, and guest edited by US DAT 
staff member Patrick Lichty, Director of the Bureau for the 
Dissemination of Metastructures and Media Metaphors.

Asked about the new Resolution's potential to strengthen the artists' 
hand, Secretary Packer said, "We accept our responsibilities. It is 
desirable that the Bush Regime understands that any lack of 
cooperation or violation of the provisions of the Resolution will 
call for broad action of the artistic Avant-Garde - that artistic 
action will be unavoidable - to better enable those concerned with 
the fate of our world to invent explosive material to toss into the 
political-economic bunkers."


The US Department of Art & Technology

The US Department of Art and Technology is the United States 
principal conduit for facilitating the artist's need to extend 
aesthetic inquiry into the broader culture where ideas become real 
action. It also serves the psychological and spiritual well-being of 
all Americans by supporting cultural efforts that provide immunity 
from the extension of new media technologies into the social sphere.


Tel-SPAN is the telematic broadcasting channel of the US Department 
of Art & Technology. Its mission is to provide global access to the 
artistic process in an increasingly cybernated society. Tel-SPAN will 
provide its audience access to live, real-time distribution of broad 
forms of cultural content, and to other forums where critical 
artistic issues are discussed, debated and decided - all without 
editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced presentation of 
all radical points of view.

Covenant for the Articles of Artistic Mediation

The Covenant for the Articles of Artistic Mediation, collectively 
co-authored by artists and critics from around the world, was 
officially transmitted on June 19th to the US Department of State at 
the World Mediation Summit in Washington, DC. The World Mediation 
Summit was convened under the theme "Artist as Mediator on the World 
Stage," held at the Goethe-Institut Inter Nationes, the German 
Cultural Center in Washington, DC, as a signal of the cultural 
community's determination to tackle head-on the extraordinary 
challenges faced by the world after the attacks of September 11th.

Hi nettime-l people,

this is an open call to fellow digital and network media creators by the
OFFLINE digital creative association,,
and South London based digital art events group 'open_digi',, for participation in our project >war time<

today, on the anniversary of the end of biggest human on human killing
spree so far, 'WWI', and with less than 30 days till the first trigger
point where the US and allies may commence war on Iraq, with many ongoing
wars around this world and many people who thought they were 'safe' now
being targeted both by state and non-state weapons of terror and mass
destruction, we feel it is appropriate to harness our skills, our
imaginations and the networks we have amongst us to build a collective
reaction to and against war-making, past, present and future.

the >war time< project is conceived firstly as a live performance event,
utilizing technologies and networking from the internet, with projections
and sound, though contributions should be adaptable subsquently for online

The interface that will launch individual contributions to >war time< can
be seen at

venues and dates are being sought.

participation in >war time< is invited from all digital and network media
creatives of good will.

Subject:  -empyre- : constructing the virtual 

- -empyre- takes pleasure in introducing our next guests and theme--

November 2002 - Virtual Construction

Please join us for a wide ranging discussion on the possibilities of virtual
construction as viral and pandemic with Joseph Nechvatal, electronic media
animator/painter/philosopher; and, later in the month, as identity and
network with Gregory Little, an electronic media artist whose art engages
issues of  avatar and immersion.

Transmedia artist and philospher Joseph Nechvatal engages "viractuality"
(occasions where the virtual and the actual merge), and tests the grounds
for a technological and erotic aesthetic of virtuality.  Electronic media
artist, writer and editor Gregory Little  explores constructions of identity
in networked virtual environments as an artistic medium, while focusing on
issues related to consensual identity, avatars (avatara), being inside-out,
abjection, hierarchies and the "Body w/o Organs", and the post-human.

Viractualism with Joseph Nechvatal November 1-15 & Avatar Manifesos with
Gregory Little November 15 -30

holography called:


A unique document in the history of holography, this first interactive
encyclopaedia is exclusively devoted to Holographic Art and the
internationally reknowned artists who took over the scientific technique to
express themselves in their own original creative ways.

This fabulously illustrated digital document contains hundreds of still
images and tens of videos that reveal how nearly one hundred artists have
used holography as their privileged tool and how it has influenced their art
in return. These bold, imaginative artists are the pioneers who have
accomplished a remarkable breakthrough in the art milieu by introducing new
dimensions of light and space..

This CD Rom also contains a whole section of useful bibliography and

Moreover, it has also been designed as a teaching tool for Colleges and

Clear and not overly technical, it facilitates the transmission of
information about this new magical technology.

Version 3.0 of Violence Online Festival
online since 08 November
on occasion of the presentation on
"e-magic cybermedia events"
43rd International Filmfestival Thessaloniki (Greece)
12-16 November

Violence Online Festival is
a New Media art project
reflecting the phenomenon of "Violence",
curated, organized and created in Flash by
Agricola de Cologne, curator and media artist operating
from Cologne/Germany. As an ongoing project
Violence Online Festival is developed for being
presented in future in the framework of physical and
virtual media festivals and exhibitions.
For each event a new project version will be created
adjusted to the actual needs
including additions of new artists/works
and other changes.

Version 3.0 of Violence Online Festival includes new works of following
Ruediger Axel Westphal, Matze Schmidt, Raphael Lyon and Andres Ingoglia,
Jane Fenton Keane, Jason Sweeney, Emilie Pitoiset, Antoine Schmitt
Patrizia Alemanno, Luca di Gregorio, Joerg Piringer, Andre Zogholy
Todd Jokl, Nicolas Economos, Adam Beebe-Infanticide,
Danielle E. Lee  and Bang-Geul Han, Dylan Graham
Tautvydas Bajarkevicius, Ego, panoptica

The human character contains both a light and a dark side, good and bad,
individually manifested. Deeply rooted is a dark-sided
element:  Violence.
In happy surroundings, it becomes hardly visible and in
less happy surroundings - either of a physical, psychological,
environmental, ideological, economic or political nature  -
nearly automatically a kind of survival
strategy with all the known consequences we see
manifested in conflicts on a small or large scale.
Violence is present anywhere, hidden or sleeping,
hesitating, waiting or in action, starting from simple
mobbing via verbalor physical attacks, the bandwidth has no end.

Nowadays, globalization, social injustice,
unemployment, increasing wealth on one side and
on the opposite increasing poverty (without mentioning some
causes) produce a climate where violence has a fertile
soil.  From the attack on 9/11 in the USA, people from
the Western civilization became painfully aware that
security of any kind is a mere illusion; not only the
internal, but also the external enemy is present anywhere.

Artists are said to be the consciousness of a nation or society
as they reflect the actual state of the psychological and physical
When this state is penetrated by violence, nobody is surprised that
violence becomes a universal subject for artistic reflection, the difference
only be the view on it and its perception depending on
the respective cultural background.

'Art and violence both seem to stem from the abstract: that place beyond
logic, the realm of the emotion. When they intersect we are simultaneously
repelled and attracted, frightened and excited. Historically this meeting
has been wrought with complexity, and as cultural violence in every society
increases, we are prevented by paranoia, censorship and ethical demands from
asking, and sometimes even posing, some of the most important questions
violence and art together and separately produce: how is violence
represented, and what or how much of it do we need to resist the cultivation
of fear and the encouragement of dependency? Is violence a tool, a process
or a result? When are artistic portrayals of violence justifiable? As
intellectual exercise, ritual, or spiritual enhancement? For other purposes?
Or are they never justifiable? Is violence in art an action, reaction, or
reflection? '  (quotation: festival statement).

How different the results of an artistic reflection can be is
shown through the Violence Online Festival, a New Media
online exhibition project curated and organized
as an individual event by Agricola de Cologne
including more than 150 artists from
30 countries presenting their work. It forms a
dynamic collaborative art work presenting very
individual visions and use of media.

The relevance of violence becomes visible also through
the high quality standard of  all the included works. Each
of them represents another aspect of violence - caught
in textual poetry, running as a video or embedded in an
interactive environment of a net-based art work.

In reaction to the key role (mass) media plays by displaying and even
violence, a new environment (interface) has been created for Violence
Online Festival, which houses and hosts the art works within a virtual media
company named "Violence Media Incorporated".
By dividing the company into different departments (eg.
"Violence for Happiness" , "Violence Marketing" or "Violence Broadcasting"),
it becomes clear that their meaning
has a rather ironic or sarcastic character, which gives
the embedded art works a new meaning.

While surfing through this environment, the visitor is forced to ask and
give answers,  and becomes slowly a part of this network of art through his
reflections and changes of perception.
