                               During the month of August Inventory
                               will site a temporary structure within
                               the grounds of an erstwhile army
                               clothing factory in Hiroshima, Japan.
                               One of the few buildings left standing
                               after the 'Little Boy' detonated above
                               the city, our intention is to use the
                               monument as a base from which to
                               disseminate, exchange and display
                               information.

                               We are beginning that process now with
                               a request for contributions in whatever
                               form, either electronic or 'hard
                               copy':
                               text > images > realaudio files > mp3s
                               > links > cassette tape > cuttings >
                               opinion > bile > sentiment >
                               analysis......

                               What constitutes an urban Community?

                               Can a city be considered a place of
                               continuity? If so, is this continuity
                               to be found in architecture/artifacts
                               or people?

                               What happens when a society reinvents
                               itself?

                               What role does technology have in a
                               city terribly transformed by it?

                               What is architecture once it has ceased
                               to be inhabited?

                               Is the sky above a city part of that
                               city?

                               What does the past mean for you?

                               What does this present moment mean for
                               you?

                               Is the notion of progress an important
                               idea to you - if yes/no - why?

                               Does the self or others matter most?
                               yes/no/neither - elaborate.

                               What meaning and/or value does work
                               have for you?

                               Is our society defined by the
                               monumental or the mundane?
                               yes/no/neither?

                               Is a successful society one that
                               conforms to an overall ideology or
                               vision?

                               Is the world a more violent place -
                               yes/no - why?

                               Can violence be represented? - Do
                               current conflicts such as Kosovo have
                               little meaning in the age of
                               television? Is there a refusal to take
                               on this trauma as our own?

                               Has the age of television in fact
                               receded? Has anything taken its place
                               or is broadcasting itself receding?

                               What is sacred to you? and why?

                               What are your dreams?

                               What guides and shapes you - fate or
                               character? neither? suggest?

                               What understanding do you have of
                               death? - what would it mean for you (or
                               someone close to you) to vanish without
                               a trace? - does this devalue a human
                               being in the memory or imagination of
                               another in the absence of any kind of
                               memento mori?

                               Does popular culture offer
                               opportunities for individual expression
                               or does it offer a kind of belonging?

                               What is foreign? - do you have memories
                               of being an outsider?

                               Is communication between beings always
                               and necessarily imperfect and
                               incomplete?

                               Do states dream?

                               To live is to die?

                               When is annihilation possible? When is
                               it desirable?

                               Is narcissism the foundation of
                               communication?

                               Does ecstasy exclude method?

                               What passes through us?

                               How far are you from the centre of your
                               home?

                               Do states dream of an ordered
                               self-communion that would impinge upon
                               a body fetishised by technology?

                               Does anyone give a damn about
                               identity?

                               What's inside you? Behind you?

                               Are we to be eternally embarrassed by
                               revolution?

                               Is history always a fiction in a
                               landscape of constructions?

                               Why do we name objects as if they were
                               characters in a script?

                               Where does the space for improvisation
                               occur between one and zero?

                               Fission or fusion? What is between
                               these processes?

                               Have you ever worked in a factory or
                               have been involved as a "moment" in a
                               mass production process? - describe the
                               conditions. Are there feelings of
                               impowerment or loss in such a process?

                               Is myth an important part of life
                               today?

                               Is freedom possible in a planned city
                               or is freedom possible in an unplanned
                               city?

                               Is information a commodity rather than
                               an animated idea?

                               Does information have the same status
                               as knowledge?

                               What would be the most important
                               category in understanding life - its
                               process or substance?

                               Does photography, and many other
                               technologies besides, merely encourage
                               an introjection in the user?

                               Is nature something that has to be
                               understood? overcome? tolerated?

                               Do we project our desires on to
                               nature?

                               Describe within daily life, at work,
                               social gatherings etc., how much of
                               this existence is supported by ritual
                               practices and complex, detailed
                               symbolic systems?

                               Is humankind only partly rational?

                               Is the present formed and informed by
                               the past

                               If at all, how do you conceptualise the
                               spiritual - as immanent or
                               transcendent?

                               Please send responses to any or all of
                               the above questions to Inventory at the
                               following address before the end of

OPEN CALL FOR ARTWORK & PRESS RELEASE


Artists for Kosovar Refugees: A Benefit Auction


Organized by RACCOON Inc. (http://balkansnet.org/raccoon.html),
Name.Space Inc. (http://www.name-space.com/) and Women in
Black, New York (http://balkansnet.org/women/).


All proceeds go to the Women in Black of Belgrade and Motrat
Qiriazi of Kosova (http://balkansnet.org/women/beges.html). All
donations (money or in kind) in the U.S. are tax-deductible and

The aim of the event is to raise support for the Kosovar refugees in

For the auction, rather than hanging the art, we plan to use internet
 and digital projectors to show the art simultaneously in the
Name.Space gallery in New York and in the museum in Duisburg,
Germany where the Name.Space is currently exhibiting. The art
pieces will also be accessible through the WWW. Bidding will be
handled from the auctioneer's block in New York. We are still
discussing the technical details about bidding in Germany and
bidding over the internet.


SUBMISSION RULES:

Art work should be submitted in a JPEG or any other Mac-readable
 format on a ZIP drive or a CD. Alternatively slides or scannable
originals are also acceptable. In case of larger art-pieces
organizers will make arrangements with contributing artists to
digitally photograph their work. Art work will be collected by July
21. Please contact Indira Kajosevic (indirak@igc.org,
212.598.0954).


LOCATION & TIME:

Auction is to be held on July 31, 1999 from 10 am to 12 pm EST at
 the Name.Space, 11 East 4th Street, 2nd floor, New York, U.S.
and from 4 pm to 6 pm at Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum, Friedrich-
Wilhelm-Strasse 40, Duisburg, Germany. Auction's web adress will

Re: participation and cooperation in a network project

We're looking for people interested in participating in the project "my
private home in the global village". This piece of work is to be created

for the exhibition
Convention - < 0-1/ and back again >
Kunsthalle Schirn, Frankfurt, Germany
July 23 through August 8, 1999

Project:

"My Private Home in the Global Village"
by Annette Goedde
in cooperation with Fabian Englaender
For further information please check
http://www.oszilla.de/private-home

Project description:

All participants are asked the question: "What does your ideal home look

like?" They are encouraged to react spontaneously, writing down the
first
ideas that come into their head, trying to express them as clearly as
possible. Accompanying drawings or sketches are welcome.

Send us an e-mail telling us about your ideal home. We'll interpret your

description and make a real-life model based on this information.

This will take place during the exhibition at Kunsthalle Schirn from 23
-
30 July, 1999. Our exhibit will consist of a combined modeling workshop,

computer workplace and presentation space where your idea will be
implemented and shown alongside our models of ideal homes contributed by

other participants. Over time, a "model city" will evolve.

During work on your model, questions may arise. If you are interested in

communicating with us about your idea, this will be possible from 23 -
30
July 1999. A picture of your model will be sent to you as an image file.

You can then suggest improvements which we will try to follow
immediately.
Just put "communication" under your first mail to us to let us know we
can
get in touch with you via e-mail during the above-mentioned period.

Each day, new pictures will be added to the project's website,
documenting
the development of the model city. Each participant will be sent a
picture
of  his or her finished model.

If you are interested in this project and wish to participate, we would
greatly appreciate it if you could send us your idea/sketch as soon as
possible. Also, it would be very helpful if you could forward this mail
to
friends or other people you think might be interested.

Yours

Annette Goedde

Wiretap 5.07: Tekkie Therapy

Date: Sunday 18 July 1999
Time: 14.00 hrs (doors open 13.00 hrs)
Location: V2_, Eendrachtsstr. 10, Rotterdam
Entrance: fl. 7,50

Guests: Erik Hobijn (NL), Henk Oosterling (NL), Erik Davis (US)
Moderator: Alex Adriaansens, V2_


The 1999 Wiretap series focuses on the possibilities of acting, interacting
and intervening in media environments like the Internet and Virtual
Reality. The series investigates the effects of these actions through
digital media on our social and cultural environments. (where we live,
work, learn, communicate and amuse ourselves).
Artists and scientists present projects and concepts about a special theme.
The Wiretap of the 18th of July has the theme 'Tekkie Therapy'


TEKKIE THERAPY

The programme Tekkie Therapy presents radical projects and concepts in
which (media) technologies are used to level emotional blockages, to recall
and work through repressed dreams and fears, and general therapeutical
applications. Tekkie Therapy deals with the physical and psychological
mobilisation of body and soul in the arts, science and techno-utopianism.


Technology and therapy are closely connected. Therapies have always been
specific techniques of care and treatment with or without technical
apparatuses, based on herbs, acupuncture, massages, language, technology
and media in the wider sense of the word. The technological age has not
kept its old utopian promise of an existence in permanent happiness. On the
contrary: every technology that is invented as a remedy appears to be
accompanied by new physiological or psychological problems.

Especially in different psycho-therapies, media and technical apparatuses
are used to stimulate the mind, to re-animate repressed thoughts and to
break through mental blockages. Even in the nineteenth century, psychiatric
patients were reminded of their own past and their 'real' existence by
showing them their own portrait photographs. Another example of a medial
therapy is the test of Rohrschach, where abstract drawings are used as an
inspirational source for free association. Nowadays, we find a growing use
of new technologies, like computergames, Internet and robotics in such
contexts.

Wiretap 5.07 deals with three extreme positions in the domain of Tekkie
Therapies. The artist Erik Hobijn introduces several of his installations,
like his potential 'suicide machine', through which user and audience are
offered a physically and psychologically transgressive experience. The
philosopher Henk Oosterling talks about the
unstable triangle of body, psyche and machine, by way of an analysis of
notions of technology in modern psycho-therapy. Using examples from
Hobijn's work, but also by referencing phenomena like the Tamagotchi,
Oosterling deals with the relationship between, and the psychological
consequences of, medial interactivity and interpassivity. The cultural
critic Erik Davis speaks about the Extropians, an American sect of
techno-utopians who search for a release from all earthly inconveniences by
completely technologising their lives. As special guests we expect a number
of Shadow Buddies, therapeutical dolls with disabilities, protheses, and
beaten faces.


Guests:

Erik Hobijn studied at the Rietveld Akademie and, after a few years in
Berlin, now again works and lives in Amsterdam. His work moves between
performance, theatre, pyro-arts and digital media. He examines the friction
and the cathartic collision of the human body with the machine and natural
materials like metal, water, fire and sound. The art project Delusions of
Self Immolation from 1991 offers a user the opportunity of a journey to the
limits of existence. The Dante Orgel is an installation-performance with 15
flame-throwers for a big audience: a
machine-choreography of light and heat, beauty and destructive energy.
Furthermore, Hobijn is developing concepts for Techno-Parasites, little
machines which tap into big machines and eventually use their energy for
their own disruption and destruction.

Erik Davis is an author, journalist and cultural critic who lives in San
Francisco. He writes for Gnosis, Wired, Details, The Rolling Stone and
especially for The Village Voice. His subjects range from television and
music to philosophy. At the beginning of the nineties he first became
interested in digital technology. He wrote an essay under the title
TechGnosis which later resulted in a book with the same title in which
Davis examines relations between technology, religion and techno-utopianism.

Henk Oosterling is the co-ordinator of the Centre of Philosophy and Art at
the Faculty of Philosophy of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. He did
linguistic didactics and political work with guest workers and immigrant
working youths in the 1970s, and lived in Japan and studied sword-fighting
(kendo) in the 80s. Since 1985 Oosterling has been practising dialectics at
the Faculty of Philosophy of the EUR, then also French theories of
difference and, since 1992, aesthetics, a trajectory that is documented in
three philosophical books about the relationships between philosophy,
politics and art. Together with Siebe Thissen, Oosterling recently
organised a publication and a conference about the French philosopher and
psychiatrist Felix Guattari.



The Wiretap series is supported by the Rotterdam Art Foundation and the
Dutch Ministery of Education, Culture and Science.

V2_Organisation is financially supported by Cultural Affairs of the City of
Rotterdam and the Dutch Ministery of Education, Culture and Science.
