Darij Kreuh and Davide Grassi : »Brainscore« [2000]
Interactive 3D Performance[in the context of the exhibition FUTURE

Sat-Sun, February 22 & 23, 2003
ZKM-Media Theater, 5 pm | admission free 

The Brainscore project by media artists Darij Kreuh and Davide Grassi
deals with the research of communication patterns and the interface
enabling the human body and the global information space to connect. It
is a performance for two operators, in which incorporeal communication
is used as the starting point for creating a controlled communication
system. The system is based on the use of brain waves and eye movement
for performing basic commands while defining a new digital discourse in
virtual space without using the traditional and generally established
ways of communication [thus, socially recognized and conventional
communication codes are abandoned – speech, body gestures etc.]. 

The operators, positioned parallel to each other so that they do not
face each other, establish a communication testing ground, within which
they are trying to create a dialogue with the help of 3D objects. Each
operator is represented, in the space of virtual reality, by a matching
avatar that embodies primitive behavioral characteristics and form, at
least in the initial phase. The operators’ task is to »educate« their
corresponding representation in virtual space by performing a series of
operations and commands, which are set up in direct relationship to the
global net dynamics [macro] and the user’s neuronic net [micro]. 

Visual immersion of the viewer will be enabled with the help of
polarization glasses. They will be able to experience the perception of
computer-generated events as the presence of reality in the spirit of
the perception of the third dimension.

Before the war


                                        Translated by Ed Emery



Iraq: the propaganda war *


     Twelve years after the Gulf war, the second president in
     the Bush family is trying to persuade and bully both his
     own nation and the rest of the world into supporting him
     in a new war against Iraq. This time, though, everybody
     everywhere is sceptical about the half-truths, lies and

Tony Blair, issue by issue


     The prime minister of Britain is more respected in the
     United States than in either the country that elected him
     or the European Union of which that country is a member.
     What influence can he have on war in Iraq?

                                      Original text in English


Central Asia: America's rear base *


     United States-led troops are being stationed from Armenia
     to Kazakhstan, and US military advisers, trainers and
     specialists are moving into former states of the USSR, in
     pursuit of terrorists - and the control of oil and gas.

Djibouti: a new army behind the wire *


     THE United States army is back in the Horn of Africa, 10
     years after its disastrous incursion in Somalia (1). This
     time it is there to fight terrorism. More than 1,000
     soldiers are stationed in Djibouti, once the French
     Somali Coast protectorate, at Camp Lemonier, originally
     occupied by the French Foreign Legion. The base has grown
     steadily since they arrived last September.

                                   Translated by Harry Forster

Kosovo undefused *


     Kosovo has been a UN protectorate for almost four years.
     The situation there is unresolved. The economy is in a
     mess, Serbs have been overruled and ejected, and the
     Kosovans are fighting among themselves.

                                  Translated by Barbara Wilson


North Korea's nuclear winter *


     President George Bush wants to topple the North Korean
     regime, and has total disregard for South Korea's
     attempts at reconciliation. He is risking the safety of
     both Koreas, and causing alarm in China and Japan.

                                      Original text in English


Israel: a new Palestinian diaspora *


     The repugnant idea of the 'transfer' of the Palestinians
     - meaning their total expulsion - now appeals to many
     Israelis. The Israeli army and some settlers are already
     organising 'mini-transfers' in the West Bank, and any
     serious new threat to Israel (for example, missile
     attacks from Iraq at war) could precipitate the brutally
     enforced expulsion of millions.

                                   Translated by Luke Sandford


Russia: the default option *


     Vladimir Putin has presided over the introduction of a
     labour code that reduced rights for employees, over the
     collapse of social security and pensions, and over the
     widening gap between rich and poor. He has put his own
     men in key economic, political and media positions. But
     he is still supported by four out of five Russians. There
     is no credible alternative.

Is there any opposition? *

Latin America: critical year for the left


     The victories of Lula da Silva in Brazil and Lucio
     Gutiérrez in Ecuador, and Hugo Chávez's resistance to
     destabilisation in Venezuela have changed the possible
     future of the left throughout Latin America.

Jordan Crandall
Technology, Mobility, and Desire

ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlshrue
Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum Graz
Hatje Cantz Publishers

Introduction by Peter Weibel
Edited by Brian Holmes
262 pp., 189 illustrations, 125 in color, numerous graphs,
14.5 x 22.7 cm, softcover
ISBN 3-7757-1174-0
January 2003

The work of artist and media theorist Jordan Crandall is a major
contribution to the understanding of media and communication technology
and its impact on the human being and the visual arts. Drive will remain
as a privileged document about artistic thought in the nineties, of a
deep change in the concept of art, media and life. But the central issue
of this book leads much further: Crandall offers a coherent theory of
the individual, its redefinition through the media space and through
worldwide communication networks. Drive is about thinking the image and
the status of the human being in the age of Internet and of globalized
mass media. Under these conditions, Jordan Crandall is pushing forward
two main philosophical investigations of the seventies and eighties:
Gilles Deleuze's concept of "Rhizome" and Michel Foucault's analysis of
the subject at the interface between technology and the body.
ROBERT FLECK, Independent critic and curator, director of Graduate
Studies at Ecole Regionale des Beaux-Arts in Nantes

Jordan Crandall has the mind of a pragmatist and the heart of a utopian.
With astonishing breadth and rare lucidity, he calls upon
psychoanalysis, film theory, semiotics, and demography to expose the
insidious political and economic forces that structure and control the
“body-image-machine complex.” While sketching a chilling image of the
intersection of the ascendant database paradigm with military technology
and globalized commerce, Crandall does not succumb to cynicism or
fashionable passivity, but presents an urgent case for the possibility
of “new identity formations and agencies.” In his art, writing, and
editorial work, Crandall has fashioned a critically important survival
guide to the emerging present.
LAWRENCE RINDER, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Whitney Museum, New

In Drive, Jordan Crandall boldly re-figures the fundamental metaphors
guiding our interactions with digital media, including "pages," "nodes,"
and "links."   He adopts instead the idea of a differentiated field that
includes computers, networks, users and physical spaces. Working from
this premise, he shows how the metaphor of the vehicle, imagined both as
a transportation device and as a semiotic-linguistic entity, can be used
to re-think our embodied relation to inscription technologies and
particularly to digital media.  Richly imagined and powerfully argued,
this book has the potential to revolutionize our discourses about media
and consequently the possibilities we can envision for them -- and for
N. KATHERINE HAYLES, Professor of English and Media Arts at UCLA and
author of _How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics,
Literature, and Informatics_

Between machine vision and a database, between art world, critical
theory and new media, between a screen and a mobile vehicle, between art
practice, writing and net-dialog, between the network and the cinematic,
between theory and visual poetry -- Jordan Crandall’s works strike at
the most critical conceptual knots of our computer culture.
LEV MANOVICH, Associate Professor of Visual Arts at University of
California San Diego and author of _The Language of New Media_

Today, Jordan Crandall's urgent voice demands to be heard. His work in
media theory compels us to recognize the extent to which our
consciousness is formed, manipulated and maintained by a range of
technologies extending from those associated with image production to
those constructing and managing ubiquitous networks.
DAVID A. ROSS, former Director, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Jordan Crandall’s reflections on the relation between “technological
facing,” sensorium and subjectivity update Benjamin’s and Deleuze’s
insights as vision and desire are wired in imaging technologies produced
for Hollywood and the military. Crandall’s fusion of film and
military-driven “strategic seeing” is not the stuff of science fiction
but a deconstructive replication of the
military-industrial-entertainment complex’s invasion of our perceptual
GEORGE YUDICE, Director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean
Studies, New York University

Drive resists either cybernetic or science fiction scripts for digital
culture that often invite an indulgence in parallel or recursive
realities. For Jordan Crandall, digital devices are simply a new set of
interfaces and switches in the larger colloidal field of everything
else, and so they are about the material within which they are embedded
- -- our bodies, our larger marketplaces and networks, and our daily
theaters of operation. Discussed as animations or activities, as verbs
rather than nouns, these technologies are passages between "interior and
exterior rhythms," and they both ventriloquize and receive life beyond
their own boundaries and capabilities. However invisible the may be,
they are the measured by the huge spaces they calibrate, spaces
controlled by commerce, by the military and by millions of other voices.
These very spaces that are both intrinsic and extrinsic to the digital
are Crandall's sites, not only discussed but occupied, in installations,
objects, online forums, essays and special publications.
KELLER EASTERLING, Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at
Yale University and author of Organization Space

What characterizes this important work as a whole is its grand human
scale and its attention to new phenomenologies of embodiment and
subjective experience. In Drive, Crandall makes a realm of surveillance
technologies that operate largely below the threshold of conscious
awareness felt in erotic choreographies and rhythmic uses of imagery.
Fresh theoretical categories emerge out of this art.
MARGARET MORSE, Professor of Film and Digital Media at University of
California Santa Cruz and author of Virtualities: Television, Media Art,
and Cyberculture

Professor in the Visual Arts Department at the University of California,

Story streams
Streaming Cinema 3.0, Philadelphia

The real-time creation of an online film by different filmmakers in 4 cities
around the world. Working within a common narrative, filmmakers in Paris,
Philadelphia, Montreal and Mexico City will each develop their own version
of a short film. During the webcast the filmmakers will upload their footage
to the filmmaker in Philadelphia, who will weave together the footage in
real time to create one, unified story. The mixing will be webcast live, so
online audiences can watch the film being created. The finished film will
reside online at The Bit Screen <>.

A unique experiment, Story Streams employs high technology and digital
cinema to mimic the ancient tradition of oral storytelling. The tale begins
at 9 p.m. on February 22nd at the studios of WHYY-TV in Philadelphia.

Grounded in the Internet's early libertarian culture and predicated on
anecdotes pulled from diverse political climates, this conventional wisdom
has informed the views of policy makers, business leaders, and media pundits
alike. Yet few studies have sought to systematically analyze the exact ways
in which Internet use may lay the basis for political change.

In Open Networks, Closed Regimes, the authors take a comprehensive look at
how a broad range of societal and political actors in eight authoritarian
and semi-authoritarian countries employ the Internet. Based on methodical
assessment of evidence from these cases-China, Cuba, Singapore, Vietnam,
Burma, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt-the study contends
that the Internet is not necessarily a threat to authoritarian regimes.

Beatriz Preciado : Multitudes Queer : Notes pour une politique des anormaux
- - Cet article traite de la formation des mouvements et des théories queer,
de la relation qu'ils entretiennent avec les féminismes et de l'utilisation
politique qu'ils font de Foucault et de Deleuze. Il explore aussi les
avantages théoriques et politiques que procure la notion de "multitudes" par
rapport à celle de "différence sexuelle" pour la théorie et le mouvement
queer. À la différence de ce qui se passe aux Etats-Unis, les mouvements
queer en Europe, s'inspirent des cultures anarchistes et de l'émergence des
cultures transgenres pour contrer l'"Empire Sexuel" notamment en proposant
une dés-ontologisation des politiques des identités. Plus de base naturelle
("femme", "gay", etc.) qui puisse légitimer l'action politique. Importance
non de "la différence sexuelle" ou de "la différence des homosexuels (le)
s", mais des multitudes queer. Une multitude des corps : corps transgenres,
hommes sans pénis, gouines garous, cyborgs, femmes butchs, pédés lesbiennesŠ
La "multitude sexuelle" apparaît ainsi comme le sujet possible de la
politique queer.
- - This article deals with the formation of both queer movements and
theories, with the relations that they entertain with feminisms and the
political uses to which they put Foucault and Deleuze. It also explores the
theoretical and political advantages provided by the concept of Œmultitudes¹
over that of Œsexual difference¹ for queer theory and movements. In contrast
to the American scene, queer movements in Europe are inspired by anarchist
culture and the emergence of transgendered cultures to counter the Œsexual
Empire¹ notably by proposing a de-ontologisation of identity politics. More
a natural base (Œwoman¹, Œgay¹ etc) which can legitimise political action.
The emphasis is no longer on Œsexual difference¹ or Œthe difference of
homosexuals¹, but on queer multitudes. A multitude of bodies, transgendered
bodies, men without penises, dykes, cyborgs, butch girlsŠ.The Œsexual
multitude¹ appears henceforth as the possible subject of a queer politics.

Rosi Braidotti : Les sujets nomades féministes comme figure des multitudes
- - À partir des innovations théoriques introduites par la pensée féministe
post-structuraliste ces dix dernières années, cet article examine les
présupposés et les implications d¹une vision féministe nomade de la
subjectivité. L'accent tombe d'une part sur le matérialisme corporel et donc
aussi sur la sexualité et la différence sexuelle, et de l'autre sur
l'importance de nomadiser toute différence, afin d¹éviter de recomposer des
formations molaires du sujet-femme. L¹article conclut sur la nécessité
d'aborder le devenir-femme du sujet comme un projet a la fois politique et
éthique et donc comme processus ouvert et concret.
- - This article rests on the theoretical assumptions of feminist
post-structuralist thought and aims at exploring some of their
implications. It discusses the notion of nomadic feminist subjectivity and
it addresses some of the tensions implicit in this notion.  The emphasis
falls on two central ideas: on the one hand on bodily materialism and hence
also on sexuality and sexual difference. On the other  hand the necessity
is also stressed to nomadize all differences, in order to avoid the
recomposition of molar formations of the feminine subject. The article
concludes by arguing for the need to understand the becoming-woman of the
subject as a project that is both political and ethical and hence requires
an open and concrete approach.

Maria Puig de la Bellacasa : Pour des savoirs qui comptent. Politiques
féministes du savoir
- - La politisation féministe de l¹expérience, le personnel est politique, a
atteint les savoirs dits scientifiques. Les théorisations de ces politiques
en termes de construction de ³ savoirs situés ² défient la tradition
épistémologique moderne. Affirmant un style politique qui chérit les
divergences solidaires ces théories prolongent la vivacité de l¹histoire
politique du féminisme.
- -The feminist politisation of experience, the personal is political, has
reached that knowledge we call scientific. The theorizations of those
politics in terms of the construction of ³situated knowledges² challenge
modern epistemological traditions. Affirming a political style that
cherishes divergent solidarities these theories continue the liveliness of
the political history of feminism.

Cristina Vega : Interroger le féminisme. Action, violence, gouvernementalité
- - Interroger le féminisme devient, au présent, une exploration des trajets.
Trajets à travers le scénario modifié des femmes dans la globalisation et
trajets des exercices de lecture de ce scénario à partir du féminisme. Dans
ce contexte, la question de la violence contre les femmes comme source de
légitimation et de gestion du social et la mise à point du travail, des
affects et de la vie quotidienne dans l'ère de la reproduction flexible
deviennent des sphères clé des transformations des technologies du
gouvernement des genres. Le conflit que suscite en ce moment l'intervention
administrative différée et d'urgence et l'homologie que l¹action féministe
même entretient a son égard doit être soumise à un examen qui place au
centre les capacités désirantes et de création de valeur du féminisme.
- - Any examination of contemporary feminism is an exploration of
trajectories. Trajectories across the changing scenarios of women in
globalisation. In this context, the question of violence against women as a
source of both the legitimisation and the management of the social and the
perfecting of work, of affects and of daily life in the era of flexible
reproduction become key spheres of the transformations of the technologies
of the government of gender. The conflict that incites the various and
urgent administrative interventions and the equivalence that feminist action
itself maintains with regard to it must itself be submitted to an
examination which places at its centre the desiring capacities and the
creation of the value of feminism.

Noortje  Marres : Quel est cet animal politique sorti du chapeau de la ³
gender theory ²?
- -La seconde vague du féminisme a mis en évidence la particularité de
phénomènes que la théorie politique moderne avait  conceptualisés comme
génériques  de  par leur nature et leur sujet : le citoyen , la communauté
politique, les différents domaines de la politique. Depuis   les pratiques
et la théorie  féministe ou queer ont non seulement montré que le sujet des
arrangements  et des domaines politiques est  toujours historiquement
spécifique.. Ils ont également montré que leur particularité  peut être .
constitutive de la politique. La spécificité des acteurs politiques, de
procédures ou de thèmes particuliers peut informer des processus politiques
. De cet apport du féminisme ,  ce court article  argumente  sur sa
pertinence  pour appréhender la politique aujourd¹hui .. Dans  la
mondialisation le caractère particulier  des processus politiques et de ses
ingrédients devient absolument évident.. Dans ce contexte des acteurs non
orthodoxes comme les ONG deviennent des agents actifs de la politique et les
frontières des communautés politiques deviennent mouvantes. Alors des sujets
émergent  qui résistent au traitement classique  des institutions
démocratiques  comme celles que l¹on trouve à l¹intérieur des États ­nations
. A mesure que la particularité  des acteurs, des arrangements et des
domaines de la politique devient absolument claire,  les théories féministes
ou queer jouent un rôle crucial dans la compréhension de la politique ..
Elles nous disent non pas de résister à cette particularisation de la
politique  mais de nous en saisir. Elles nous rappellent que la principale
question politique est celle  de   la délimitation de sites particuliers, la
construction de formes spécifiques de la politique et l¹articulation  ,  de
domaines particuliers.
- - Second-wave of feminism has stressed the particularity of phenomena
thatmodern political theory had conceptualized as general in nature and
scope :the citizen, the political community, the topics of politics. Since
then,feminist and queer theories and practices have not only shown that
thesubjects, arrangements and issues of politics are always historically
specific. They have also demonstrated that their particularity may be
constitutive of politics. The specificity of political actors, of particular
procedures and themes may inform political processes. This insight of
feminism, this short piece argues, is of special relevance for grasping
politics today. Under circumstances of globalization, the particularity of
political processes, and their ingredients, becomes increasingly obvious. In
this context, unorthodox actors, such as ngo¹s, serve as agents of politics,
and the boundaries of political communities become unsettled. Also, here
issues emerge that resist treatment in classic democratic institutions, such
as those founded in the nation-state. As the particularity of the actors,
arrangements and issues is increasingly clear, feminist and queer theory
become especially crucial to the understanding of politics. It tells us not
to resist this particularization of politics, but to embrace it. It reminds
us that the main political question is that of the staking-out of particular
sites, the construction of specific forms of politics, and the articulation
of particular issues.

Marie-Hélène Bourcier : La fin de la domination (masculine) : pouvoir des
genres, féminismes et post-féminisme queer
- - L'objet de notre article est de revenir sur la critique formulée par le
post-féminisme queer, de l'utilisation du paradigme de la  ³ domination
(masculine) ² faite, aussi bien par Bourdieu que par les courants féministes
re-naturalisants,. Il s¹agit également et d'évoquer différentes stratégies
queer, de sortie de ce  paradigme , et  de voir comment il est possible de
résister au système sexe/genre dominant.
Une  vision réductrice du pouvoir des genres va souvent de pair avec une
re-naturalisation des genres "masculin" et "féminin" et bride ces
politiques sexuelles, que sont les féminismes.
 Nous mettons en évidence les  limites qu'a cru pouvoir imposer Bourdieu en
diffusant une description bloquée de la "domination masculine". Nous
critiquons également les limites de certains courants féministes qui, en
développant   une vision monogenrée des oppressions de genre, ont fait  de
cette entrée par les genres ,une entrée unique -hégémonique pour ainsi dire-
et ont , ainsi, conduit à  des politiques sexuelles à l¹origine  de
nombreuses  simplifications. et  exclusions.
Les stratégies proposées par le post-féminisme queer, pour contrer les
effets de la confiscation renaturalisante de "la domination masculine",
aussi bien que ceux de totalisation et d'unification universalisante de ces
féminismes, ne sont ni révolutionnaires, ni abolitionnistes, ni
dialectiques. ; elles relèvent de micro politiques modestes mais multiples,
car elles  prescrivent une dés-ontologisation salutaire du "sujet Femme" du
- - The object of this article is to return to the critique formulated by
queer post-feminism of the use of the paradigm of Œmale domination¹- a use
made by both Bourdieu and some renaturalising currents within feminism.
Equally, we look at different queer strategies to escape from this paradigm,
and see how it is possible to resist the dominant sex/gender system.
A reductive vision of the power of gender often goes hand in hand with a
renaturalisation of Œmasculine¹ and Œfeminine¹ genders and serves as a block
on the sexual politics that make up feminisms.
We emphasise the limits believed to have been imposed by Bourdieu in
diffusing a blocked description of Œmale domination¹. We critique equally
the limits of certain feminist currents, which, by developing a monogendered
vision of gender oppositions, have made of the entrance of gender, a unique
entrance point- hegemonic one might say- and have, therefore led sexual
politics to make numerous simplifications and exclusions.
The strategies proposed by queer post-feminism, to counter the effects of
the renaturalising seizure of Œmale domination¹, as well as those of
totalisation and the universalising unification of those feminisms which are
neither revolutionary, nor abolitionist, nor dialectical; are drawn from a
modest but multiple micropolitics, and prescribe a salutary deontologisation
of the Œsubject Woman¹ of feminism.

Rutvica Andrijasevic et Sarah Bracke : Venir à la connaissance, venir à la
politique Une réflexion sur des pratiques féministes du réseau
- - En partant du débat qui opposait ³la positivité  de la politique² à la
³négativité de la théorie² ainsi qu¹il  s¹est développé sur la liste
NextGENDERation ­un réseau européen  d' étudiants et de chercheurs en études
féministes- nous recherchons les voies par lesquelles la division  entre
³penser² et ²faire² est le mécanisme clé par lequel  se singularise la
production de connaissance  tout au long des lignes de  races et de genres ;
comme l¹ont relevé des générations de féministes , l¹amoindrissement comme
théorie  du savoir des ³autres²- femmes et peuples- et la relégation de ces
connaissances à la catégorie de ³description² maintiennent la division
sexuelle et raciale du travail  en faveur des intellectuels ( males) et
blancs et au final protége les relations de domination actuelles. Nous
argumentons que l¹affirmation  de pratiques féministes  et sans doute leur
repolitisation  ne sont  pas suffisantes  pour surmonter la négation de la
théorie . Au lieu de cela  nous avons un besoin urgent  de nous remémorer à
la lumière des interventions féministes de  NextGENDERation's au forum
social de Florence, des généalogies féministes , queer et antiracistes  qui
d¹un coté permettront l¹émergence de nouvelles subjectivités  et de l¹autre
l¹affermissement du féminisme comme projet oppositionnel.
- - Starting from the dispute centered around Œpositivity of politics¹ and
Œnegativity of theory¹, as it took place on the mailing list of the
NextGENDERation­a European network of students and researchers in women¹s
studies ‹we investigate the ways in which the split between Œthinking¹ and
Œdoing¹ is among  the key mechanisms that  demarcate the knowledge
production along the lines of race and gender. As generations of feminists
have pointed out, the dismissal of the knowledges of ŒOthers¹ ­women and
ethnic peoples‹as theory, and the relegation of these knowledges to the
category of Œdescription¹, maintains a sexual and racial division of labour
in favour of white (male) intellectuals, and ultimately preserves the
existing social relations of domination. We argue that the affirmation of
feminist practices, and perhaps its re-politicization, cannot afford to pass
through the negation of theory. Instead, we urge, in the light of
NextGENDERation's feminist intervention at the European Social Forum in
Florence, for a recuperation of feminist, antiracist and queer genealogies
which would allow for new forms of feminist subjectivities on the one hand,
and the furthering of feminisms as oppositional projects on the other.

Valérie Marange : Les angles morts
- - La question de la violence est l'horizon de la dégradation de la politique
en police, qui touche aujourd'hui au plus intime, pour faire pièce à un
péril symbolique qui concernerait langage lui-même. Mais si ce langage de la
culture court bien un risque,  aujourd'hui, c'est celui de la vacuité, que
semble avouer le mot d'ordre de la "tolérance zéro" ou le succès du délit
d'"outrage". Là où la violence manifestante devient intolérable, la violence
d'emprise se multiplie. Plus banalement cette vacuité reflète  une défection
du réel, qui construit de l'incommensurable et vide de leur sens aussi des
mots tels que ceux de différence ou d'altérité. Un devenir-femme du langage
renouerait avec le réel, celui de la lutte mais peut-être plus encore celui
de la résistance quotidienne, des moindres gestes qui font que la vie tient,
malgré tout.
- - The question of violence is the horizon of the degradation of the
political on the police, which touches today on the most intimate questions,
it is to thwart a symbolic peril which concerns language itself. But if this
language of culture runs a risk, today, it is that of vacuity, which seems
to be attested to by the order word of Œzero tolerance¹ or the success of
the crime of Œoutrage¹. Where the violence of the protestor becomes
intolerable, the violence of influence is multiplying. More banally, this
vacuity reflects a defection of the real, constructed from the
incommensurable and meaningless but also from such words as difference or
alterity. A becoming-woman of language reunited with the real, that of
struggle but perhaps more accurately, that of daily resistance, of the
slightest gestures which ensure that, in spite of everything, life remains.


Judith Revel : Devenir-femme de la politique
- - Penser le devenir-femme de la politique, est-ce nécessairement penser le
devenir-politique des femmes ? À partir de l¹analyse des changements du
paradigme du travail et de sa féminisation, il s¹agit avant tout de
comprendre si les oppositions de genre ou la construction d¹identités
sexuelles permettent l¹émergence de nouvelles modalités d¹agrégation
politique ou si, au contraire, il s¹agit encore une fois de déjouer des
mécanismes disciplinaires. La déconstruction des processus de fixation
identitaire est sans doute le prix d¹une véritable  politique des
multitudes, et c¹est précisément en cela que la parole des femmes est
précieuses : peut-être parce qu¹elles nous racontent que la différenciation
à l¹infini et le devenir-autre ont arraché la génération à sa réduction
biologique et rendue possible une ontologie politique de la création
- - In order to think the becoming-political of women is it also necessary to
think the becoming-woman of politics? It is clear that an analysis of
changes in the paradigm of work and its feminisation, is above all else to
understand if gender oppositions or the construction of sexual identities
permits the emergence of new modalities of political aggregation or if, on
the contrary, it is once again a question of thwarting disciplinary
mechanisms. The deconstruction of the processes by which identity becomes
fixed is without doubt the price of a veritable politics of the multitude,
and it is precisely here that women¹s voices are precious: perhaps because
they tell us that differentiation to the infinite and becoming-other have
dragged generation down to its biological reduction and made possible a
political ontology of creation.

Anne Querrien : Femmes, Multitude et Propriété
- - Plus le travail industriel vise la consommation, plus il devient service
et communication, plus il imite mécaniquement des savoirs-faire féminins. Le
capital devient avec l'aide de l'Etat le seul prédateur légitime. L'homme
est pris dans un devenir-femme. Les femmes sur-travaillent à rendre ce
devenir vivant. Elles produisent une individualisation toujours plus fine,
une multitude de propriétés immatérielles sophistiquées.
- - The more that industrial work is directed at consumption, the more it
becomes service and communication, the more it mechanically imitates
feminine knowledge. Capital becomes, with the aid of the State, the only
legitimate predator. Man is bound up a becoming-woman. Women overwork to
give this becoming life. They produce an ever more precise
individualisation, a sophisticated multitude of immaterial properties.

Sara Ongaro :  De la reproduction productive à la production reproductive
- - Ce texte décrit les changements qui ont affecté le champ de la
reproduction à l¹ère de la ³ mondialisation ², afin de l¹insérer dans le
mécanisme de reproduction du capital : la fameuse ³ mise au travail de la
vie. ² Ce qui a des conséquences sur les rôles assignés aux femmes, et ouvre
également un espace à de nouvelles hiérarchisations entre femmes du Nord et
du Sud. L¹auteure parle de son propre parcours vers la politique comme
pratique du changement, où la collaboration entre femmes de cultures
diverses se révèle essentiel, le champ de la consommation et du style de vie
devenant de plus en plus celui où se joue aujourd¹hui le conflit avec le
capital. Limite, dépendance, autonomie, liberté : il s¹agit de repenser ces
notions appartenant à un modèle culturel dont nous apercevons aujourd¹hui
les effets destructeurs.
- - This text describes the changes affecting the field of reproduction in the
era of Œglobalisation¹, ultimately to insert the famous Œputting life to
work¹ into the mechanism of the reproduction of capital. We show the
consequences this has on the roles assigned to women, and equally how it
opens a space for new hierarchies between women in the Northern and Southern
hemispheres. The author speaks of her own journey through politics as a
practice of change, where the collaboration between women of diverse
cultures reveals itself to be essential, the fields of consumption and
lifestyle becoming more and more those where the conflict with capital is
played out. It becomes a question of locating such concepts as limit,
dependence, autonomy, and liberty, firmly in the cultural model whose
destructive effects are becoming so evident today.

Notre jeu et nos travaux
Jeunes, elles aussi engagées dans le mouvement des centres sociaux, les
Shesquat de Milan, nous révèlent, à travers leur invention d'un jeu, les
sorties possibles tant du renferment égoïste sur soi que du renferment dans
la logique identitaire du groupe, et elles pensent de nouvelles formes de

Our game and our work
The Shesquat of Milano are young women who are also involved in the social
centres movement. They seek to illustrate, through their invention of a
game, possible ways out of egotistical self-enclosures as well as the
enclosure in the identity-logic of the group. In addition, they imagine new
forms of solidarity in labor, through invisible cooperation.

Journal de bord
Groupe de filles plutôt liées aux expériences du cyberféminisme, les
A/Matrix  reconstruisent à travers une auto-enquête sous la forme d'un
journal de bord, leur construction de "pages" de résistance, comme processus

à se réapproprier.
Log book
The A/Matrix is a group of young women closely tied to the experiences of
cyberfeminism. By means of a self-inquiry in the form of a log book, they
recount their construction of ³ pages ² of resistance, as a process of
construction of forms of life, thereby making life into that which they seek
to appropriate.

S'émanciper du travail
Précaires en CoCoCo, leur employeur ? Pour la plupart les institutions

sortie de l'émancipation par le travail : s'émanciper du travail.
Liberating oneself from work
Employed with short-term contracts as social workers focusing on women,
mainly in European institutions, the ³ Sconvegno ² group uses self-inquiries
as a way of imagining the way out of emancipation by work : emancipating
oneself from work.

Journalists or newspaper sellers?
A collective of women journalists in the leading Italian editorial group
RCS,  who have fought both for and against  the union, during the
restructuring of the group, wonder about the transformation of the nature of
intellectual labor, power relations, and what it means to ³ act politically

séropositive ou séronégative, être lesbienne au sein d'un mouvement à
l'identité forte :"homosexuel séropositif". La question de l'affirmation
d'une voix des femmes est posée. Cette enquête au sein de Act Up Paris

- - To be a minority within a monority movement, a heterosexual, HIV positive
or negative, or lesbian woman within an identity movement, namely that of
HIV positive homosexuals, poses the question of a women's voice. This
inquiry, from within Act Up Paris, traverses the problematics of multiple
identities, indentitary deconstructions and the emergence of minorities,
but within the context of a common struggle for life, for the affirmation
of the power of life against any  representation of women and those with
Aids as victims.


Frédéric Keck : Des biotechnologies au biopouvoir, de la bioéthique aux
- - Cet article propose une réflexion sur la notion de biopouvoir à partir de
l'ouvrage de Paul Rabinow, ³ Le déchiffrage du génome. ² Cet ouvrage propose
en effet une analyse des rapports entre biotechnologies et bioéthique en
France à partir de la notion de biopouvoir élaborée par Foucault. On peut
retenir de cette articulation deux thèses: les biotechnologies pluralisent
le biopouvoir et le portent à la limite de lui-même vers des êtres qui se
situent à la limite de la vie, la bioéthique échoue à constituer une
biopolitique parce qu'elle est un discours de sacralisation et non un
discours de résistance. Par-delà ces deux thèses, il s'agit de relier la
notion de Biopouvoir aux transformations récentes dans les sciences de la
- - This article reflects upon the notion of biopower deriving from Paul
Rabinow¹s work, ŒThe Decoding of the Genome¹. This book undertakes an
analysis of the relations between biotechnologies and bioethics in France
informed by Foucault¹s concept of biopower. We can retain two theses from
this account: biotechnologies pluralise biopower and take it to the limit
towards beings situated at the limits of life; bioethics fails to constitute
a biopolitics because it is a discourse of sacralisation and not one of
resistance. Beyond these two theses, we must apply the concept of biopower
to recent transformations in the sciences of life.

In the beginning many of housings in there were sold as investments but its
value went down to more than half price through the economic crisis in Japan
during 90s.
So where couldn't have any community without real resitents. After the price
went down even there are more residents than before, but many of housings
are still empty. 
Those buildings were getting old but still on sale exhibiting like full-size

fAf January - February 2003

fineArt forum = art + technology netnews

This month, Blackout, a site created by Jenny Fraser, is launched. Blackout
features information about and work by Australian Indigenous new media arts
practitioners. Blackout was initiated at NISNMA (ANAT's National Indigenous
School for New Media Artists) in 2002 when the participants formed the
Indigneous New Media Arts Collective.

Also in the Gallery, Jane Gallagher, curator of the recent Brisbane-based
exhibition, The A4 Refugee Project negotiated with several of the
participating artists for permission for their works to be reproduced as
downloadable PDFs. In conjunction with AUSTCARE, the exhibition presented
over 100 A4 sized artworks at Metro Arts during Refugee Week - we present 6
of those online.

This month fAf invites your feedback about the magazine through a reader
survey which will be online until 6 March. In order to attend to your needs
appropriately, we hope you will take the time to complete the survey. Your
feedback will be used to chart future changes and refinements to fAf online
and the edigest as well as our other components such as Art Resources,
Gallery, Screening Program and projects.

Subject: What is future cinema ?

Well, not too many mails on one day or they go into the context
eliminating saussage machine.

Yesterday, I modified an extremly simple cgi shellscript of a german
university for mp3s into a divx content management system, sort of,
which sits at:

you shouldnt expect lage dor or whatever, just some very short clips to
explain what it is about. 

Well, it is about the well known mpeg video playlist game, you should have
mplayer installed, and it is about mplayer http://bla/divx.avi streams.

http streams are "worse" than rtsp streams, you dont have the timeline,
it is bad if you have 1 million viewers at the same time, but who cares?

>From a viewers perspective the lack of the timeline, you cant move
forward, backward, is maybe the worst with http.

But see it this way: it is the same as in yesterdays cinema, you see a
movie from the beginning to the end, and this is still the best.

Thank you

> Time for Revolution
Translated and Introduced by Matteo Mandarini

> "> We discover here another Negri, a Negri deeply immersed in a philosophical, even a theological problematic. This book is a MUST: it provides the proper background for Negri's widely circulated analysis of the global capitalist Empire.> "> 
> Slavoj Zizek
> "'Time for Revolution' constitutes a major philosophical statement by one of the most important thinkers of our time."
> Fredric Jameson
> The two key essays by Antonio Negri brought together here for the first time were written in prison two decades apart. 'Time for Revolution' illuminates the course of Negri's thinking from the 1980s to 'Empire' and beyond.  
> 'Time for Revolution' reflects Negri's abiding interest in the philosophy of time and resistance. The first essay is a central work in Negri's oeuvre, tracing the fracture lines which force capitalist society into perpetual crisis. The second essay, written immediately after the global best-seller, 'Empire', provides a conceptual toolbox, deepening our understanding of the two key concepts of empire and multitude.
> 'Time for Revolution' explores the burning issue of our times: is there still a place for resistance in a society utterly subsumed by capitalism?
> Antonio Negri is one of the most significant figures in contemporary political thought.  He is the author of several works including 'The Savage Anomaly', 'Labor of Dionysus' (co-authored with Michael Hardt), 'Insurgencies', and most recently, 'Empire', written with Michael Hardt.

Infopool No. 7 2003 out now!

Inside Laboratory Italy

The political and social struggles in Italy in the recent years have been a
source of innovation and inspiration for political and social
struggles globally.  With the hype around Negri and Hardt's Empire,
based on the rich tradition of revolutionary thought and action in Italy,
we are witnessing how this tradition is being mediated within cultural
institutions and is synchronously being detached from the struggles
from which it originates.

We have invited an Italian comrade from Wu Ming Collective and the
Luther Blissett Project to give an account of the experiences, activities
and thoughts still unfolding in the material struggles of the Italian

Infopool No. 7 includes:

- - A Few Quick Notes on Social Conflict in Italy and the Metaphors 
used to describe It
by Wu Ming 1

Introduction to
- - Criminals, "Monsters" and Special Legislation in the Society of Control
by the Luther Blissett Project


- - The Practical Side of Myth Making (in Catastrophic Times)
by Wu Ming 1

The booklet is available for £3 from Housemans, Caledonian Road,
London and from the CFU Micro Bookshop, Copenhagen
and the texts are available online at

launch party will take place beneath Black Friars Bridge -
Northside sometimes in spring 2003 when the Wu Ming Collective

Description. "Copy Culture." The present title takes its theme from 
the propensity we had at the time to lionize the act of duplication, 
seeing in it various metaphors ranging from the biological to the 
cultural. In support of this theme, Ralph Johnson and Chris Glomski 
offer their significant contribution, in the form of a small booklet 
or journal, which they called "The Recombinist", taking as its stance 
that of pastiche, and as its substance, recombinant texts made up of 
fragments of previously "finished" texts they found. (It should be 
noted that these writings helped to clarify the mission of The 
Tape-beatles during the making of their most popular work Music with 
Sound, released the following year.) Also appearing is a major 
interview with Karen Elliot concerning the Art Strike 1990-1993 
conducted by Scott MacLeod. Editor Lloyd Dunn submits for your 
approval a series of full-page collages, and Piotr Szyhalski, then 
still living in Poland, provides a series of visio-verbal graphics on 
the theme of "Completeness". The usual corps of columnists, Miekal 
And, Geof Huth, Thomas Wiloch, among others, offer their insights 
into various and interesting cultural issues. Graphic submissions by 
artists such as Malok, Chris Winkler, David Dunlap, and John 
Stickney, to name just a few, serve to round out the issue.
Contributors include. P. Petrisko, Jr., John Eberly, Chris Winkler, 
Hilare Moderne, Clemente Padín, David Dunlap, Arturo G. Fallico, 
Malok, David Powell, John Heck, John Stickney, Rupert Loydell, Pascal 
Uni, Christian Rigal, Miekal And, Ralph Johnson, Chris Glomski, Piotr 
Szyhalski, Serse Luigetti, Geof Huth, Thomas Wiloch, Luke McGuff, 
Thom Metzger, Joel Score, Joseph Uphoff, Jr. , Scott MacLeod, Karen 
Eliot, John Kennedy, Ll. Dunn, Information Achive, Bob Grumman, 
Ruggero Maggi

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as an 
electronic repository for a complete collection of PhotoStatic 
Magazine, PhonoStatic Cassettes, Retrofuturism, and Psrf, (as well as 
related titles). Issues are posted as PDF files, at more or less 
regular intervals, in reverse chronological order to form a 
chronological mirror image of the original series. When the first 
issue, dating from 1983, is finally posted in several year's time, 
then this electronic archive will be complete.

Our focus for the month of March is ED BURTON. We proudly present his


Sodaplay describes itself as the home of creative play; it’s all about
the fun that comes from playing with creativity. The first sodaplay toy,
sodaconstructor, is an engaging online construction kit that gives
visitors the ability to build interactive creations from a sparse
framework of limbs and muscles. By altering physical properties like
gravity, friction and speed, curiously anthropomorphic models can be
made to walk, climb, wriggle, jiggle or alternatively collapse into a
writhing heap.

Sodaconstructor exploded across the internet in a wave of spontaneous
e-mail communication and web postings in the summer of 2000 creating a
massive growth of unusually dedicated users in a phenomenon known as
viral marketing. Since then a large and active worldwide community of
sodaplayers have been creating their own sodaconstructions which now
populate the sodazoo with a bourgeoning menagerie of models that are
stranger and more diverse than soda ever imagined possible.

DIAN - Digital Interactive Artists' Network - is a network for artists
who are seriously involved in using Internet technology in the domain of
contemporary art.

We are deeply interested in artists working in this field. Artists
