Monomedia Berlin: VALUE
An international conference on value and values in new media

May 12-14, 2000

The monomedia value conference is part of the monomedia programme at the
Berlin University of the Arts (HdK). The conference is directed by Prof.
Willem Velthoven.

We often insist that many qualities are not quantifiable.

Especially  those qualities that are easily associated with our values.

We are moving towards a society and a culture that is totally mediated
by computing machines.

So without understanding how to value our values,

our media will not be able to take them into account.

We have to understand value and values to be able to calculate a
meaningful culture.

We have to work with value to create a truly interactive art.

And shopping won?t be much fun without it either.

You are invited to submit proposals for presentation at the first
international monomedia conference on value to draw together the
creative, scientific and theoretical sides of new media.

We are looking for lecture like presentations as well as demonstrations
of creative and artistic productions.

If you are interested in presenting at monomedia berlin: value, please
send an abstract (up to 500 words) outlining the nature and subject of
the lecture/session/event. Proposals for demonstrations may take any
form that might be suitable.
The material is required by October 31, 1999. Please address all
proposals, or any queries about the conference, to:

Hochschule der Kuenste
Susanne Jaschko
the monomedia project
PB 120544
10595 Berlin

Emailed abstracts are preferable, and may be sent to:

Everything of value is vulnerable.

Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

New media is all about choice. Every choice is driven by value.
