**Call Axis Reader on Gender and New Media**

(apologies for cross-posting)

Axis, the Amsterdam based Foundation for Art and Gender, is publishing its
second reader!

As an organisation querying and promoting gender-critical cultural
production, with a strong emphasis on New Media praxis, this reader sets out
to illustrate how gendered and technological performances are continuously

*Ctrl+Shift Art - Ctrl+Shift Gender*
More often than not art still is disciplinary categorised in order to stage
a semblance of stability and demarcation.  This is very similar to dominant
gender ideology, where gender is viewed as a static given, and not as
continuously in flux.  Developments in New Media seem to have a profound
impact on the interrelationships between producers, consumers and their
respective participation within the cultural field.  The blurring of these
controlled  categories, and by corollary the shift in representation, forms
a fertile matrix for questioning gender issues.

For our reader we are especially interested in pieces addressing the
resistance to traditional artistic and gender classifications.  Moreover,
our main question probes how technological developments have affected and
will probably continue to affect the interstices between art and gender

Please send us your favourite tips and links before 10.3.2000 (message with
subject heading <reader>).

In addition to the print version an on-line environment based on the reader
will be designed.

Participants receive a free copy and our warm smiles!
