The Archaeology of Multi-Media A Conference at Brown University (Providence
RI, U.S.A.) Thursday-Saturday, November 2-4, 2000

For two-and-a-half days, participants in the conference will engage and
interrogate rhetoric about electronic media that describes them as
fundamentally new, irrevocably transformative and virtually unstoppable.

Refusing to rely on descriptions such as "new" and "digital" (for what
medium has not at one time been new, or is not now produced digitally?),

the conference will highlight mixed-media art and scholarship. It will seek
some alternative interpretations and understandings of the singularity of
electronic content, context, form, and audience, as well as another map of
the ways in which media have always been multiple. Archaeology of
Multi-Media seeks to integrate historical scholarship and emerging modes of
media theory, and to link the study of multimedia with existing work on
'traditional' media, as it opens some emergent spaces of mixture and
multiplicity in present research and action.

In order to do this, we will launch the conference with a
performance/lecture Thursday night by the digital collective Mongrel (a
U.K.- and Jamaica-based artists group set up to explore issues of race,
technology and new-eugenics, and an agency to co-ordinate and set up other
new media projects so that those locked out of the mainstream can gain
strength without getting locked into power structures). This event will be
followed on Friday and Saturday by eight ninety-minute panels, as well as
student mixed-media displays, covering issues like: film, television and

video, and print and or as electronic media; language and systems; conflict
media; identity and difference; and social movements.

"The Archaeology of Multi-Media" brings together an international group of
scholars, artists, activists, and technologists, including:

Geoffrey Batchen (cultural criticism/history of photography; University of
New Mexico, U.S.A.) James Der Derian (international relations; Brown
University, U.S.A.) Richard Dienst (cultural criticism/visual media;
Rutgers University, U.S.A.) Thomas Elsaesser (film/television/new media
theory; University of Amsterdam, Netherlands) Wolfgang Ernst
(history/classics/archaeology/museology/media studies; University of
Bochum, Germany) Julia Flanders (Women Writers Project; Scholarly
Technology Group, Brown

University, U.S.A.) Graham Harwood (artist/programmer/co-ordinator;
Mongrel, U.K.) Ken Hillis (theories of communication technologies/virtual
Geography/social and political identities; University of North Carolina,
U.S.A.) Mervin Jarman (artist/programmer/co-ordinator; Mongrel, Jamaica)
Thomas Keenan (human rights/literary theory/media studies; Bard College,

U.S.A.) Lev Manovich (artist, theorist and critic of new media; University
of California, San Diego, U.S.A.) Tara McPherson (gender and critical
studies/television/new media/popular

culture; University of Southern California, U.S.A.) Thomas Levin (media and
cultural history and theory; Princeton University, U.S.A.) Geert Lovink
(media theorist and activist; Adilkno + De Waag + many others, Netherlands)
Nick Mirzeoff (visual culture/art history; SUNY Stony Brook, U.S.A.) Lisa
Nakamura (postcolonial studies/critical theory; Sonoma State, U.S.A.)
Renata Salecl (sociology, criminology, and philosophy; University of
Ljubljana, Slovenia) Cornelia Vismann (rhetoric and media techniques of
law; European University Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder))

Subject: Bauhaus Award Event City Conference

The Bauhaus Award

The first International Bauhaus Award will be presented on September 16,
One prize will be awarded for outstanding achievements in architecture
and urban development, a second in art and new media, while the third
award is a special prize for academic and conceptual work. The Bauhaus
Dessau Foundation  will be conferring the Bauhaus Award every two years
in the future. It focuses on the themes at the center of the Bauhaus'
work, namely city and urban design.

The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has asked more than 100 international
designers from various backgrounds to bring forward potential candidates
for the award. Following a pre-selection by the jury, successful
applicants will have the opportunity to present their work at the
Bauhaus on September 16, 2000. On this day, the final decision will be

Thematic Focus: Event City

The urban entertainment culture of the 21st century, the event city, is
made up of theme worlds given over to spectacles, enjoyment, consumption
and entertainment.. Malls, theme parks, raves and leisure centers have
become hallmarks of big cities. Urban entertainment centers bring
together shopping, entertainment and event under one roof and are
celebrated around the world as successful examples for the
revitalization of inner cities. How can architecture and art maintain
their claim to provide guidance when our entire everyday world is
increasingly stylized into a holistic work of art? What can architecture
and art contribute to the design and integration of an event city? The
Bauhaus will address these issues and others at the 2nd International
Bauhaus Kolleg starting in September 2000.

What does it mean to see and to be seen?

Replica is pleased to present "this boy could be me" (following
Pasolini's statement on the gaze at the object reflecting the viewer's
desire), an exhibition which explores how we recognize identities of
others and how we place ourselves in relation to the other. The
exhibition comprises images that address the complexity of human
identity presented by models of fashion and advertizement; individual,
corporate, or familial portraits; environmental photographs as well as
anonymous footage.=20

The show also explores how a particular space, that of Replica Theater

pass, how it constitutes conditions for vision

and recognition.

NOMADS is pleased to announce the launch of still-life, a new web project by
John Hudak created for our on-line Project Room.

In still-life, Hudak points a black and white webcam at his dining room
table capturing a still image every three minutes which is then colorized
utilizing van gogh's starry night palette.  Each individual image is further
converted to audio, creating a unique soundtrack which is updated every time
a new still-life is transmitted. Playing-off the notion of a webcam as a
surveillance or voyeuristic device, Hudak instead creates a painterly
portrait of his life and surroundings.

Hudak is a sound artist whose work has been presented on numerous cds and in
live performances. He has also created a number of web-based works including
three projects for turbulence (

BAD SUBJECTS:  Politics of Everyday Life


Bad Subjects is seeking short, accessible essays relating to the politics
of everyday life.  Essays should be short (around 3000 words) and should
be written in accessible and jargon-free prose.  Writing that combines
practical issues with theoretical consideration will be especially
appreciated.  Feel free to query issue editors on essay proposals.  Visit
the journal at

Issue topics for 2000-2001 include:

* Spirits
* Improper Intellectuals
* Alienated Labor
* Strangers
* Garbage

SPIRITS -- Bad Subjects #51

We are continuously surrounded by the image, suggestion, and even presence
of spirits. Perhaps someone gave you a boxing alien doll for your
birthday, or your mother channels on weekends, or you are a day-trading
slave to the sinister "invisible hand." A spirit can be something undead,
something all-too-dead, or magic that guides the living. Depending on your
perspective, we have an overabundance of spirits in our everyday lives, or
an underabundance. In overabundance, we have the spirit of capitalism --
no longer in the form of the Protestant ethic -- but in the form of a
god-like deus-ex-machina to be revered, not explained. Inexplicable
phenomena make for good popular cultural fare, even with the X-Files'
ratings on the decline. Even the human genome could be thought of as a map
of the human spirit. But at the same time the contemporary popularity of
irony and cynicism among the cultured bourgeoisie point to an age devoid
of spirit -- of course they also point to the spirit of the age.

Subjects for consideration might include: Zeitgeists; poltergeists; the
spirit of revolution; the dead; wine and other spirits; school spirit;
aether; marginal experiences; science and the spirit world; The Skeptical
Enquirer; the Tao, feelings of debt, loss, or grief; spirit photography;
radio waves; spirituality; psychic phenomena; trips through time;
disembodied beings; angel cards; millennial movements; qi, graveyards; the
alien fetish; or credit (perhaps the defining spectre of our era).

Deadline for submissions is September 7, 2000. Send submissions to issue
editors Jonathan Sterne <> and Megan Shaw Prelinger


Walter Benjamin once bitterly described the condition of being an
intellectual as the experience of a perpetual state of homelessness. "The
problematic situation of intellectuals," Benjamin argued, leads them to
question their own right to exist because society consistently denies them
the means to exist, i.e. easy access to respectable forms of employment
whose middle class status is simply unquestionable. While Benjamin's
beliefs were rooted in his own difficult personal experiences of having
his dissertation rejected, and an inability to find proper employment
doing what he did best - writing; nonetheless, Benjamin extrapolated from
his circumstances that there is a certain lack of cultural value placed
upon intellectual activity that ideally culiminates in an experience of
political radicalization. In the Improper Intellectuals issue, Bad
Subjects would like to invite contributors to explore Benjamin's thesis.
Is the alienating experience of being an intellectual really all that
radicalizing?  For that matter, what's so alienating about intellectual
life anyway? Go nuts.

Submissions to issue editors Joel Schalit <> and
Geoff Sauer <> due October 17, 2000.

ALIENATED LABOR -- Bad Subjects #53

For Marx, capitalism represented "the domination of thing over man, of
dead labor over living labor, of the product over the producer." It's a
formulation worth recalling in this era of globalization, when mainstream
pundits paint the free market as a fountain of youth. And it's one that
the activists who participated in the "Battle in Seattle" and subsequent
protests against the WTO, World Bank, and other institutions have taken to
heart, whatever their position on Marxism.

The Alienated Labor issue takes Marx's formulation as the starting point
for an exploration of the nature and manifestations of working people's
alienation under capitalism.  How do we confront and contend with work
that we realize is for the benefit of the "prosperous few?"  How do we
organize workplaces to reclaim the fruits of labor for ourselves?  How do
we combat the alienation of life energies at work, at home, and on the

This issue invites essays on the politics of labor; labor organizing
drives and activism; malcontent workers; non-compliance, disobedience,
sabotage, work actions and strikes; identity politics and labor; "illegal"
labor (like that of undocumented workers or prostitutes); migrant labor;
unemployment; working at home and telecommuting;  9-to-5 dead-end jobs;
mental health and work; occupational health; bad bosses and tyranny in the
workplace; the "disappearance of labor" in consumer economies; laboring
for a survival wage; the anomie that comes with meaningless work; and
other related topics.

Contact issue co-editors Charlie Bertsch at <> and
Joe Lockard at <> if you are interested in
contributing. The deadline for finished articles will be November 28,

STRANGERS - Bad Subjects #54

There are strangers in our midst. Every day we deal with people who are to
varying degrees unfamiliar to us. Often these interactions take place
without much awareness on our part: they barely register on our social
radar screen. We buy groceries from complete strangers, exchange
pleasantries about the weather with them, or simply pass them on the
street -- all without giving it as much as a second thought. But at other
times, the strangers in our midst become the focus of our attention,
eliciting from us strong responses loaded with political meaning. With hot
heads and anxious hearts we denounce the influx of 'foreigners' and
'aliens' into our communities, calling for their expulsion, incarceration
or marginalization. Or, in a move equally fraught with political and
cultural significance, we travel to the opposite end of the spectrum and
eagerly embrace strangers, treating them as fetishes upon which to project
our innermost desires and fantasies. And, of course, sometimes the shoe is
on the other foot and we find ourselves playing the part of the stranger,
when, for example, we travel to another country, interact with a cultural
scene different from our own or simply drive through a new neighborhood.

Possible topics might include: the marking of certain groups as 'strange';
the definition of strangers, aliens, and foreigners in the politics of
immigration and multiculturalism; travel and the experience of being a
stranger; personal experiences of feeling strange, odd, and out of place;
aliens and extraterrestrials; the stranger in film, literature, and other
types of pop culture; discrimination against strangers; exotic strangers;
threatening strangers; strangers and fear.

Deadline for submissions is January 23, 2001. Send submissions to issue
editors John Brady <> or Steven Rubio

GARBAGE -- Bad Subjects #55

Today we live in a world were consumption of innumerable products
continues to grow.  With each new product or market niche discovered and
exploited, the capitalist law of designed obsolescence becomes more
apparent.  Everything we buy ends up in a landfill coming to a low-income
neighborhood near -- but not too near -- you.

What is the role of garbage in our world today?  Is there such a thing as
garbage in the material sense, or as demonstrated by the intense rise in
collectibles of every sort over the past five years, has capitalism
managed to turn its waste into something other than garbage?  What then
are the new disposables of the 21st century?  Is garbage now confined to
immaterial social institutions and beliefs once viewed as indispensable?

Property values now matter more than accessible housing.  Profits for
share holders take precedence over stable labor markets and wages that
maintain a quality standard of living.  What is the status of family?
Friendship? Love? Parenting? Charity? Ethics?  This is not an
old-fashioned argument for right-wing Christian family values.  Rather it
is a query to explore the interrelationship of the continual rise of
material commodities to the point where almost everything that's physical
is potentially a sacred material commodity and the seeming restructuring
of the immaterial as expendable, unimportant, irrelevant -- garbage.

What is garbage today -- and why? Deadline for submission is March 6,
2001.  Send submissions to issue editor Robert Soza

BOOGIE! -- Bad Subjects #56

More than just music, BOOGIE! suggests its expression through dance, an
attitude, assertion and a way of moving.  "Boogie" depends on *beat,*
which, in the broader sense, reflects and may drive the rhythms of our
behavior outside the disco.

To cover the sound, the groove and fingerpoppin' of daily life, we seek
analysis of the progressive, regressive and repressive in Punk, Rap,
Dance, Pop, Country, Crossover Classical, and other, underexamined or
unfashionable, musical forms. Replay the politics of music and power,
music sold to us, music taken from or by us, musics and communities,
music's facilitating technologies, that insistent beat and the power-chord
moments when music helped us make political sense of this mystifying

>From Bronx Italians in Spike Lee's "Summer of Sam" to suburban New Agers
and those execs on Robert Bly retreats finding their inner African via
tropical beats, boogie brings together disparate communities in a
symbiosis as universal as the drum itself.  In the midst of Manchester's
post-urban techno-wasteland, rave culture asserts its organic
pulse.  Liberation through Ecstasy?  Or just more agony?

For others, "let's boogie" is just a way to say "I'm outta here!"  What
does BOOGIE! mean to you?

Subject: The Week Of Small Miracles (London, 1-9 September)

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Friday 1-  Saturday 9 September 2000

The Week of Small Miracles is a Millennium project curated by Peter
Cusack and produced by the London Musicians' Collective, realised in
and around North London's River Lee.

This event celebrates the unique, often bizarre, geography, culture
and history of the people in the Lee Valley area.  It is a
collaboration between artists across the media; performance, writing,
visual art, sound/music, video and participatory events. There will be
an exhibition, Colourscape music, the Small Miracles free newspaper
and website, an audio CD of Lea Valley sounds and stories, a treasure
hunt and a boat travelling down the canal which converts into a cinema
by night.  Featuring Anna Best; John Bisset; Rupert Carey; Peter
Cusack; Simon Faithfull; Ella Gibbs; Mss Producers; Viv Corringham;
John Wynne; Jeff Higley; Tomoko Takahashi; and Colourscape.

A vast sculptural environment full of musicians and artists, drawing on
