Artists for Nonviolent Alternatives

Advisor: Dore Ashton

"Returning violence for violence only multiplies violence, adding
deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars."    --Martin Luther
King, Jr.

"Imagine that you are creating the building of human destiny with the
object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last,
but that it was essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny
creature and to found that edifice on its unavenged tears, would you
consent to be the architect on those conditions?"  --Fyodor Dostoevsky,
Brothers Karamazov

Introduction: We affirm that murder and forcible expulsion of people are
crimes against humanity. Bombing, though, is not an effective nor
civilized way to solve conflicts and is no less criminal. It is bitter to
realize that at the end of the 20th century, after two world wars--the
most cruel and severe in the history of mankind--our civilization still
resorts to conflict resolution not through dialogue, but armed force. It
seems that no lesson was learned from this century's horrific experiences
and we are destined to fall once again into a vicious cycle of death and

All of Europe is affected by the war in the Balkans. In addition to the
obliteration of Serb police and army sites in Kosovo, NATO has demolished
much of the civilian infrastructure of Yugoslavia. Hundreds of civilians
were killed, thousands wounded, and hundreds of thousands left jobless.
Bombed were television stations, oil refineries, chemical plants, electric
transmission facilities, major roadways, airports, hospitals, schools,
medieval monasteries, as well as numerous museums and monuments. Cluster
bombs, 25 percent of which fail to detonate, litter the terrain with land
mines for years to come.  This war can lead to political, social, and
ecological destruction of Europe and the rest of the world.

Proposal (Consisting of Two Parts):

1. Group Exhibition: Open to all media--painting, sculpture, photography,
video, installation, and computer generated art concerning the definitions
of human, humane, humanitarian/ism, humanity, humanize.

2. Collaborative Piece Artpeace:  each artist/writer/photographer who is
willing to participate shall contribute an art piece the size of his/her
hand. The amount of artwork received will determine the installation in
the space. The unified art piece will be linked together in the form of a
tree and continue to grow exponentially as artists from around the world
send in their contributions via mail or the internet.

Purpose:  The proceeds from the sales will be donated to an independent
humanitarian organization (to be determined) that does not take a military
position and that provides medical and other crucial aid to those who are
suffering as a result of this war: both Albanian and Serbian victims. This
exhibition, however, is intended to raise much more than money.  By
bringing together artists from different countries we would be creating a
dialogue and, therefore, taking significant steps towards the peace

Participants: Visual artists/Writers who would like to participate in the
name of peace.

Anna Oppermann: 'Being different (Why is she so different?)', 1970-1984
P.S.1, Long Island City, New York
June 20 - August 29

Open June 20, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents Anna Oppermann's
expansive multi-media 'ensemble' 'Being different (Why is she so
different?)', 1970-1984 in its third floor archive gallery. This
installation marks the first New York presentation of works by the late
German artist (1940-1993), who was celebrated in international exhibitions
such as the Venice biennial (1980) and documenta (1977 & 1987), but never
exhibited in the United States during her lifetime.

Anna Oppermann's chosen term 'ensemble' describes not only the form of her
work, but also refers to the process of its construction. The ensembles
were created often over many years, growing from ordinary everyday found
objects, small still lives, flower or plant leaves, and words or phrases
taken from passing conversation. The resulting assemblages led the artist
to specific problems, which she approached by adding new observations,
comments, and findings. In the ensembles, each step of this artistic
process of perception, research, and interpretation is documented and
constantly rearranged.

Oppermann declared 'from the personal to the general' as a main tendency
her visual thought process. Over 60 large works by Anna Oppermann remain -
assembled from hundreds of little pieces based on themes such as 'being a
woman', 'being an artist,' 'being different,' 'love, eroticism, sex,' as
well the thematic areas 'oil on canvas', 'myth and enlightenment' or the
'economical aspect' (of making art).

'Being different (Why is she so different?)', 1970-1980 is not a
self-portrait, nor does it describe otherness as an identifiable trait.
Instead, this ensemble tells about the experiences of dissociation,
revealing otherness as something hidden, undiscovered, and impossible to
find. A central motif in the work is a sitting woman, whose face remains
obscured by her own hair. The figure is simultaneously hiding and left
Paradoxically, she hides something to avoid being accepted without
to avoid acceptance. The ambivalence of this gesture runs through the
ensemble, which unfolds and  communicates the interrelationship between
isolation and deprivation.

One of the first large ensembles created by Oppermann and exhibited
publicly, 'Being different' was first shown in 1972 in the Hamburg
Kunsthalle, and was last shown fully assembled in 1986. This presentation
of the work at P.S. 1 will not only introduce Oppermann's work to the
American public, but also make this important ensemble from her early
oeuvre accessible for the first time in thirteen years.

The new installation of 'Being different (Why is she so different?' is
organized and curated by Ute Vorkoeper and Herbert Hossmann. The
is presented in cooperation with the Goethe-Institute New York / German
Cultural Center.

'The show must go on'

Exhibition comix from Serbia at Gallery Lambiek

Amsterdam, Thursday 3. June a compelling exhibition of recent comix from
Serbia opens at Amsterdam Gallery Lambiek. [Fifteen] Serbian comix artists
use their talents to tell about their everyday lives during wartime. A
thought provoking view of the impact of the NATO-bombs seen from the
perspective of ordinary Serbian civilians from Belgrado, Novi Sad,
Pancevo, Vrsac and Nis. The show must go on is also available for an
international audience at the Lambiek website: Among the
those collaborating on The show must go on are comix artists of
international fame like Aleksandar Zograf ('Dream Watcher') and Zoran
Janjetov ('La jeunesse de John Difool, Les Technopres').

The show must go on is an initiative from 'Anti War Action Foudation for
Former Yugoslavia' (AWA), a non-profit organization that ever since the
civil war in former Yugoslavia started has been organizing financial and
moral support for cultural and peace movements in the area. AWA has done
so by organizing benifit concerts, festivals, dance parties and

One of the central popular media which AWA puts to use to reach its goals
is comix. The 'Signed by war' project from 1994, for example, features
work from such world class artists like Enki Bilal, Lorenzo Mattotti,
Peter Pontiac and Peter Kuper.

AWA spokesperson Momir Stocic Moki is available for interviews and
additional information. Phone: 0031 - 6 -22461434 e-mail:

The first summer academy for theatre and new media at the Festspielhaus

summer academy is interaction and reality. Organizers are the Europische
Werkstatt fr Kunst und Kultur Hellerau and transARTES of the cultural
travelroute Les Arts Vivants et lidentit europ*enne of the European
Commity Strassbourg. The summer academy is financed by the
fr Bildung und Forschung.

The assignment of the summer academy is the education of students and
professional: theatre directors, choreographers, actors, dramaturgs, media
artists, as well as theatre- and media scientists in the usage of

The summer academy opens in the night of june 19./20. with "Aether -
- Europa", a theatric-digital voyage by Penelope Wehrli. A symposium of
international theatre- and media scientists (20. - 22. 6. 1999) sees its
task in reconstructing interactive forms of theatre in the 20. century and
comparing these to the electronic-digital media of today and exploring
possible junctions between theatre and new media. In artistic-practical
workshops, lasting a fortnight each ( 24. 6. - 11. 7.), theatre- and media
artist will work together on "digital performances". Interactive

1999) focusing on interactive videoinstallation and performance. The
academy ends with work-in-progress demonstrations showing the results of

On internet:
As an exploration of our perceptions of time and space today, the
exhibition, 1 monde rel, extends into the virtual space of the
Fondation Cartier web site. With a virtual fashion show of clothes
designed for a body in mutation by Matthieu Manche and the project
Longitude 38 by Valry Grancher, owner of a lunar concession situated on
the crater, Gassendi, the virtual works created on this occasion echo
the exhibition and abolish the borders between reality and imagination.
Reflecting a state of being tied to the medium of internet, the quality
of "here and now," the proposition of Gwek Bure-Soh, an artist of
Singaporean origin, explores the immediacy of images captured in real
time by quick cams, as well as the direct accessibility of radio and
television emissions from around the world through the web.
This exhibition on the web also offers documentation of Cai Guo-Qiangs
Projects for Extraterrestrials.
