new EUrope

As soon as the Czech Republic joins the EU, presumably in 2002, not only will 
a new state border to Slovakia be drawn through the former CSSR, but the 
shifting walls of the EUropean fortress will as well. The former "Eastern 
Block? has become a group of small countries newly configured and reunified 
under the roof of the "common house of Europe?. The constituency of the 
European Union after 1989, the expansion of the EU borders toward Middle, 
Central and Southeastern Europe, the introduction of the EURO currency zone 
and the Schengen-Treaty countries, as well as joining the NATO all reinforce 
old Europe?s incessant exclusiveness. In this whole process the realities of 
the former confederation of socialist states and of the countries of the 
southern hemisphere are left behind. It goes without saying that Rumania, 
Bulgaria and ex-Yugoslavia or Albania are left out in the cold. 
New models and identities aimed at creating a common EUropean identity are 
introduced while simultaneously excluding all others who do not meet the 
expectations of an economically efficient Europe. The political and 
media-based production of difference has a direct correlation with 
transnational activities of multi-national companies, and with the 
protectionism of the new state constructions within EUrope. 
The problem here is while this construction of the 'other' is an instable 
one, in addition it is constantly subjected to continually changing social 
and cultural negotiations and modes of representation. Significantly, 
cultural production and the arts visualize these processes of inclusion and 
exclusion; simultaneously these fields of work frequently involve 
collaborative cooperation and a network of contacts.The was central 
in strengthening contacts among Eastern European artists. 


The project MoneyNations first took place in 1998 at the Shedhalle in Zurich. 
The focus of our discussion was Western Europe?s restrictive border politics 
toward Central and Southeastern Europe, which is debatably the result of both 
cultural and economical circumstances. The other major emphasis was on the 
heightened increase in discrimination against non-EUropeans. Over the course 
of a year we built up a correspondence network, which consisted of theorists, 
media activists and artists from Central and Southeastern Europe, who 
specifically challenged the Western-centered European approach to the 
construction of borders.
The exchange process brought about video productions, photographic work, 
installations, theoretical texts and narrations. The project began with a 
three-day congress on the economy of the border and a workshop with media 
producers from ex-Yugoslavia at the Shedhalle. Contributions of the first 
event in Zurich can be found on the website or in the 
publication The Correspondent (also available in English). Members of the 
public who are interested in this project may subscribe to the mailing list 
at <>. 


Topics chosen for MoneyNations2 at the Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna 
include the fortress of Europe, state architecture and gender, resistance 
politics, and media tactics; we will also continue to discuss important 
questions from the preceding project in 1998.  New correspondents (artists, 
media activists and theorists) have been invited to extend our experience 
focusing on "East/West? as a problem of all of Europe (key words here are: 
new interior state borders, normalization and regionalization). In addition, 
the perspective of MoneyNations 1 (Network Southeastern Europe) shifts 
geographically. The focus for Vienna is, among other things, on EU internal 
racist policies, inner European forms of resistance and the normalization 
processes of the countries directly bordering on the EU, such as Central 
European countries  and ex-Yugoslavia. The dynamics of this project take the 
political and geographic situation of the place chosen for this new 
exhibition into consideration, because Austria is surrounded by bordering 
countries that will soon be integrated into the EU, therefore the 
relationship of the center to the periphery should be reconsidered throughout 
the entire project. 


The abovementioned situation lays the foundation for the second MoneyNations 
congress in Vienna which will focus on the fact that the binary construction 
of the West as the center and the East as periphery can no longer coherently 
explain the existing relations of power. On the contrary, new points of power 
have apparently been constituted in Central and Eastern Europe restating that 
racism and sexism are not purely Western phenomena. Beyond this, the current 
political situation in Austria has strengthened the need for the development 
of new political concepts. In dealing with the increase in right-wing 
politics inside and outside the EU this congress will introduce and discuss 
critical approaches ranging from forms of political activism to cultural 
strategies. Therefore, this congress takes on more of the charachter of a 
supra-national meeting among various kinds of producers of culture, theorists 
and activists, rather than that of a classical academic congress. 

The exposition in the gallery Exnergasse mainly features media productions 
originating from the project EuroVision2000 (Prague, Bologna, Brussels, 
Zurich), or which have been compiled in this process 
( EuroVision2000 is a network of independent video 
and media producers, theorists and artists interested in working on the topic 
of transformation and exclusionary processes within EU Europe  which began as 
an project element based on media activism within the project MoneyNationsTV. 
Additionally, Klub Zwei, Vienna, has been invited to include their film 
program "State Architechture? at the exhibition. An international radio 
workshop in cooperation with the local radio station Radio Orange is 
scheduled as part of the opening of MoneyNations 2.


Invited on-air and online radio projects work towards a Central European 
exchange system. Besides strengthening existing peer agreements, mnFM leaps 
out to develop online audio database and exchange platform which dynamically 
allows shared radio programmes by local stations. mnFM is co-hosted by Radio 
Orange (Vienna) and Radio FRO (Linz).
