The transition from the industrial to the
information society has led to major changes in
nearly all spheres of human activity.
World-Information.Org addresses the deep structural
transformations that result from the rise of
electronic information and communication
technologies and by way of its exhibition and
conference program as well as its web presence
disseminates an understanding of their cultural,
societal and political implications.

In continuing its series of international
presentations,  World-Information.Org is now
preparing a comprehensive program in Serbia The
World-Information Exhibition will be shown from 22
March to 5 April, 2003, at Novi Sad's Museum of
Vojvodina, and from 19 April to 5 May, 2003, at the
Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade. By means of
exhibits and visual diagrams, interactive
installations and digital artworks the exhibition
will offer visitors  up to date information on the
impact of the expansion of worldwide communication
and information networks on various aspects of
society and people’s professional and private lives.

A new security paradigm overshadows the world of
technology and communication. Conflicts are
increasingly affecting the Infosphere. Communication
technologies are becoming carriers for media PR,
while psychological "truth projection" operations
are turning into socio-technical engineering
challenges. The World-Information Forum on “Total
DisInformation Awareness: Conflict, Control and
Freedom of Information”  will be held on 20 April,
2003, in Belgrade and will scrutinize this recent
development. The conference will act as an open and
interdisciplinary forum to discuss questions such
as: “How can transparency of the control of
information flows and production be promoted rather
than an opaque system of unaccountable information
dominance? How can it be assured that the public
interest is represented in a balanced way?” Speakers
will include Mathias Broeckers (DE), Steve Kurtz
(US), Petar Milat (CR), Sjoera Nas (NL), Marko
Peljhan (SI) and Gordan Paunovic (YU).

Rounding off the exhibition and the conference will
be the World-Information Lounge; taking place from
23 March to 5 April, 2003 in Novi Sad’s Museum of
Vojvodina where presentations and lectures from
artists, activists, professionals and scientist as
well as discussions will take place.

World-Information Exhibition Program

World-Infostructure visualizes subject matter linked
to various aspects of the information society. It
represents the results of the research program that
has been carried out in connection with
World-Information.Org since autumn 1999 and also
forms the base of World-Information.Org’s online
knowledge database. On 32 information displays
World-Infostructure illustrates issues associated
with the development of digital media, new
communication codes and tools, and sophisticated
technical instruments e.g. the increasing use of
biometric devices or the application of data mining
for direct marketing purposes. The findings of
World-Infostructure’s research activities have also
been published as “Die Politik der Infosphäre.
World-Information.Org.” by the Center for Civic
Education, Bonn , and Leske+Budrich, Leverkusen.

Command, control, computer and communication (C4)
are the keywords for the visitors' encounter with
current and historic surveillance and control
technologies such as implantable tracking devices
and fingerprint scans. Especially in the aftermath
of the events of 11 September, 2001, governments,
police and intelligence agencies have reinforced and
extended their surveillance and eavesdrop systems.
Besides displaying some of the technologies, which
are used in this context World-C4U presents arts
projects such as [RT-32] - ACOUSTIC.SPACE.LAB, NEVA
Network Analysis (Marko Peljhan) or Safe Distance
( that examine and question these

Future Heritage shows the rich, diverse and vital
variety of electronic culture. It exhibits the works
of well-known and international artists such as
Apsolutno, 0100101110101101.ORG, Critical Art
Ensemble and Darko Fritz that experiment and operate
with new media and present-day technologies. Their
projects build a bridge between traditional artistic
practice and the possibilities that evolved with the
diffusion of electronic networks and digital
evices  - they represent what will be the  cultural
heritage of tomorrow.

Following the overwhelming success of the inaugural event in 2001, Ideas at 
the Powerhouse returns on 14 August 2003 with a four-day program of ideas,

communication, population, innovation, technology and change will fill the 
four days. The festival is comprised of four major elements: Ideas 
speakers; the Ideas Bazaar; Ideas Online and Kids Ideas. The 2003 program 
will be mostly free, open to all and offer something for everyone.

The Ideas Advisors Jacqui Katona, Phillip Adams, Marina Vit, Dr Dale 
Spender, Dr Wendy Sarkissian and Professor Ian Lowe are putting the final 
touches to the program. The full details on speakers and sessions for Ideas

Subject: "Notice": interactive video art installation

An interactive video art installation
by D. Jean Hester

Art Exhibit and Opening Reception

"Notice" is an interactive installation that combines playful 
audience-participation with video, user-submitted text, and computer 

"Notice" seeks to engage people to notice what exists around them as a way 
of re-engaging with life, and as a way of contributing to the creation of 
the artwork.  By the simple act of being asked to share something they have 
noticed, people become more tuned in to what is around them, perk up a bit, 
cast off the haze of modern life, and see the beautiful, frightening, 
wonderful, profound things around them every single moment.  The only way 
they can participate in "Notice" is to *notice*.

After the close of the gallery show, "Notice" will move online, where its 
web-based incarnation/database will continue to grow and evolve.

This is the first solo show for Hester, a media artist/experimental 
filmmaker/programmer based in Los Angeles.

Opening Reception: Friday March 7, 2003, 5:00 to 10:00 PM
Exhibit runs March 7 through March 29, 2003
Gallery Hours: Friday & Saturday 12 to 9, and by appointment

Slow Motion Pictures
7169 Beverly Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA  90036

Slow Motion Pictures is a conceptual image gallery that is exploring new 
ideas in images and time.  The gallery seeks to reexamine and rediscover the 
sometimes novel but often profound implications revealed during the birth of 
motion pictures.

de Cologne" stands for awareness of history, humanity, and new ways of
approaching art. Agricola's “brand” penetrates his art. Currently his works
are net-based and incorporate strong multimedia, collaborative and
networking components. The result is a universe of multifaceted sites and
art projects incorporated in the "NewMediaArtprojectNetwork" created by the

All three works on Turbulence point to interactive aspects of Agricola's
net-based works:

"[and_scape]" (2002) is based—like most of his individual works—on
Agricola's specific language of "Simultaneous Associative Media Art
Composing." In short, this associative working system uses and develops a
variety of different media simultaneously: in this case, programming, image,
voice, sound, music, and words/text. The work was inspired by texts of the
Chernobyl survivor Liubov Sirota.

"Family Portrait" (2001), a collaborative documentary, focuses on the three
female members of the Partnoy Family, all of them active as artists in
different disciplines, who escaped from the so-called Argentine Holocaust,
persecution and imprisonment.

Conceptually, "Violence" (2002-2003) is the most complex of the projects: it
is an ongoing online festival curated by Agricola in which more than 200
artists from 30 countries reflect on the phenomenon of violence. Their works
are embedded in the dynamic environment of a virtual media company,
"Violence Media Incorporated." “Violence” recently received the "Special
Prize of the Organisation Committee of Computer Space Festival 2002" Sofia


Agricola de Cologne is a multidisciplinary media artist, new media curator,
and creator of NewMediaArtprojectNetwork. He has had more than 100 solo
exhibitions in cooperation with more than 70 museums throughout Europe.
Agricola has participated in a variety of international media festivals
including THAW 02 Iowa City (USA), FILE Festival 2001, 2002 Sao Paulo
(Brazil), MediaTerra Festival, Athens (GREECE), and Art on the Net 2001,
2002. His net-based art works have received numerous prizes.

Mondophrenetic has two or three things to say about the temptations of a
total lack of orientation. The setting is provided by huge blocks of flats
on the periphery of unidentifiable metropolises drawn from half the world:
Mondophrenetic is set everywhere and nowhere, where the familiar and the
unknown, here and there, public and private are constantly changing places.
Where the visitor/user can never choose the shortest route and certainly
cannot go the same way twice.

SOUTHBOUND  March 14 - April 13, 2003 

case study of an imaginary community


THE SOUTHBOUND PROJECT brings attention to the unprecedented presence of Nordic artists in the city of Berlin. Over the last couple of years Berlin has attracted artists from the Nordic countries in large numbers. They have chosen the German capital, partly because of the relative ease by which they can find accommodations and studios there, but mostly because of Berlin's growing reputaion as the most dynamic city for contemporary art in Europe today. The existence of this network is partly a product of the creative scene in Berlin. With its immense number of cultural events and its relatively open social hierarchies, Berlin provides a boundless urban space for networking. 

With this project, we are not trying to define "the Nordic" or promote a specific Nordic line of art. We intend instead to emphasise the diversity of individual artistic_expression within it, and put a spotlight on the existence of this network of artists and curators living in Berlin and to discuss issues that deals with problems and potentials of living abroad, including the complex relation between nation and individual.  

The Southbound project is divided into two main events: an art exhibition presenting 16 Nordic artists who lives and works in Berlin and a seminar reflecting the themes as decribed above 


will open on March 14, 2003 and run until April 13, 2003. 

Opening hours Wednesday-Sunday 12.00-18.00. 

PRESS meeting Friday, March 14 at 13.00.

Opening: Friday March 14 from 18.00-21.00 

Place: Leipziger Strasse 54, U-Bahn (U2) Spittelmarkt 

The participating artists come from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The artists have been chosen not only because of their nationality and current residency in Berlin but also because their work reflects the variety of practices in contemporary Nordic art, albeit in a foreign setting. 

Participating artists are: 

Jon Brunberg (S)
Jan Christensen (N)
Markus Copper (FIN)
Charlotte Enström (S)
Ulrika Ferm (FIN)

Saturday March 15 between 12.00 - 18.00. 

We have invited a panel composed of prominent culture politicians, theorists, curators and representatives for funding institutions to hold a discussion. The themes will revolve around the concept of Nationality and how it affects indivuduals and cultural institutions in a world of mobility. 


SOUTHBOUND 14. März - 13. April 2003

case study of an imaginary community 

Das Projekt Southbound thematisiert die bemerkenswerte Präsenz nordischer Künstler in Berlin.

Berlin hat in den letzten Jahren eine große Zahl nordischer Künstler angezogen. Sie haben die deutsche Hauptstadt als progressivste Stadt für zeitgenössische Kunst im heutigen Europa gewählt, aber auch, weil es hier verhältnismäßig einfach ist, Ateliers und Unterkunft zu finden. Aufgrund der großen Anzahl kultureller Veranstaltungen und Angebote sowie der relativ durchlässigen sozialen Hierarchie bietet Berlin einen urbanen Raum zur Bildung von grenzüberschreitenden Netzwerken. Die Existenz eines solchen Netzwerkes ist zum Teil Ergebnis der kreativen Szene Berlins. 

Mit diesem Projekt beabsichtigen wir nicht, das „Nordische“ zu definieren oder für eine spezifisch nordische Kunst zu werben, sondern wollen die Vielfalt des individuellen
künstlerischen Ausdrucks innerhalb des Netzwerkes sichtbar machen. Wir wollen auf die Existenz des Netzwerkes von in Berlin lebenden Künstlern und Kuratoren hinweisen
und Fragestellungen diskutieren, die sich auf die Probleme und Chancen eines Lebens im Ausland und auf die Beziehung zwischen Individuum und Nation beziehen. 

Das Southbound Projekt besteht aus zwei Teilen: einer Kunstausstellung von 16 nordischen Künstlern, die in Berlin leben und arbeiten und einem Seminar zu den oben
genannten Fragestellungen. 


Dauer der Ausstellung: 14. März - 13. April 2003

Öffnungszeiten: Mittwoch - Sonntag, 12.00 - 18.00

Pressebesichtigung: Freitag, 14. März um 13.00 

Eröffnung: Freitag, 14. März von 18.00 - 21.00

Ort: Leipziger Straße 54, U-Bahn Spittelmarkt 

Die Künstler kommen aus Dänemark, Finnland, Island, Norwegen und Schweden. Sie wurden nicht nur wegen ihrer Nationalität und ihrem gegenwärtigen Aufenthaltsort Berlin
ausgewählt, sondern weil ihre Arbeiten die Vielfalt zeitgenössischer Kunstproduktion im Norden, wenn auch in einem anderen Rahmen, zeigen. 

Die teilnehmenden Künstler sind:

Jon Brunberg (S)
Jan Christensen (N)
Markus Copper (FIN)
Charlotte Enström (S)
Ulrika Ferm (FIN)
Lise Harlev (DK)
Gustav Hellberg (S)
Mattias Härenstam (N)
Lasse Lau (DK)
Lise Nelleman (DK)
Kristofer Paetau (FIN)
Karin Persson (S)
Lars Ramberg (N)
Kirstine Roepstorff (DK)
Egill Sæbjörnsson (ISL)
Per Teljer (S)


findet im Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin, 

Invalidenstraße 50-51,

am Samstag, dem 15. März 2003 von 12.00-18.00 statt. 

Wir haben bekannte Kulturpolitiker, Theoretiker, Kuratoren und Vertreter von Institutionen der Kunstförderung zu einer Podiumsdiskussion eingeladen. Thema ist das
Konzept der Nationalität, welche Rolle es spielt und wie sie sich auf Menschen und Institutionen in einer von Mobilität geprägten Welt auswirkt. 

Werden Sie kreativ! Bei WEB.DE FreeMail heisst es jetzt nicht nur schreiben,
sondern auch gestalten.

Video as Messenger
Anne M. Wagner, Art History, UC Berkeley

The Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium
Mon, 17 Mar, 7:30-9:30pm: UC Berkeley,
Location: 160 Kroeber Hall
All ATC Lectures are free and open to the public.

Prof. Wagner's talk will revisit Marshall Mcluhan's understanding of
media: in particular, his mythical notion of social change as sensory
change.  She will consider Mcluhan's anchoring of history to
transformations of the media on which western civilization has been
progressively dependent.  What is particularly interesting in this
context is McLuhan's idea that media exact a bodily toll: their
transformation both wound and provoke numbness as the relations of the
human sensorium undergo what McLuhan (euphemistically) terms
"extension."  With these ideas in mind, the talk will offer a
reconsideration of early video as it understands the abuses that the
body and the senses suffer via contemporary mediations, where both the
artist's experiences and those of the viewer are clearly in play.

Anne M. Wagner is an art historian whose interests are focused on
issues of gender and address in 19th and twentieth century art. Since
1988, she has been a professor in the Department of History of Art at
the University of California, Berkeley, where she is a member of the
Editorial Board of Representations.  Recent essays include studies of
Andy Warhol's Race Riot, Rosemarie Trockel's drawings, and the
rhetorical anxieties characteristic of video and performance, c. 1970.
Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux: Sculptor of the Second Empire, appeared in
1986, and Three Artists (Three Women) was published in 1996.  Her
third book, Brave New Womb: Modernist Maternity and British Sculpture
is nearing publication.
