Geographies of the Migrant Bodies

TEKFESTIVAL AND QWATZ PRESENT: URSULA BIEMANN, GEOGRAPHIES OF THE MIGRANT BODIES :: May 5th-12th 2007 – Rome, Italy :: Agadez Chronicle / video-installation (Love&Dissent Gallery, opening May 5th h.6.30pm) :: 3 video-essays: Performing the Border (1999), Writing Desire (2000), and Europlex (2003) :: (Cinema Farnese, May 6th/8th): A workshop on migration and mobility (1:1projects, May 7th/8th).

It all started in Ciudad Juarez, the Mexican city at the U.S. border grown around the industrial parks managed by multinational companies with the approval of the Mexican government. Here Ursula Biemann has filmed Performing the Border (1999) and started her journey exploring the darkest sides of globalization. To describe the border, the Chicano writer Gloria Anzaldua has used the metaphor of ‘nepantla’, a liminal and unstable space that discloses new ideas, encounters and a feeling of uneasiness. Living in this ‘tierra disconoscida’ means to experience a state of unbelonging and change. Continue reading

doing digital: using digital resources in the arts and humanities



doing digital: using digital resources in the arts and humanities :: DRHA07 :: Dartington College of Art : 9 – 12 September 2007 :: Bringing together creators, practitioners, users, distributors,and custodians of Digital Resources in the Arts and Humanities :: Deadline: May 2nd 2007.

Over the last decade the annual Digital Resources for the Humanities and Arts (DRHA) conferences have constructed an unusual kind of meeting place: a space in which researchers, curators, and distributors of digital resources could meet and share perspectives on their complementary agendas. Last year, that forum was expanded to include participants from the creative and performing arts, giving the event a new flavour and a new direction.

This year, the conference aims to explore further major issues at the interface between traditional humanities scholarship and the creative arts, by focussing on their differing or complementary approaches to the deployment of digital technologies. Can the Arts and the Humanities share expertise? Are they divided by a common tongue? To what extent are they developing common technical solutions to different problem areas? Continue reading

Climate Change Threat Advisory


re-learn the threat levels

Climate Change Threat Advisory: In 2004 Sir David King, Chief Scientist in Tony Blair’s government, began saying that global warming is a greater threat than terrorism. Hans Blix, who ran the UN weapons inspection programme in Iraq, said the same. Studies made for the Pentagon and the World Bank recommended immediate action to address imminent threats posed by global warming, with the Pentagon’s report warning that global warming is a greater threat than terrorism. With this idea in mind, the Bush administration’s terrorism warning system has been redesigned. The new advisory system clarifies the climate change threat levels facing people everywhere. Please re-learn the threat levels: Earth Day comes only once a year, but the environment needs year-round care. Has audio. Produced for Transnational Temps. Continue reading

Exhibition, Performance + Workshops

HACKmit! :: Medien und Kunst zum Leben (Media and Art to Live) :: 1st May – 26th August 2007, MACHmit! Museum, Berlin, Germany :: Opening: 1st May, 11.00am :: Free entrance :: A project curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli at MACHmit! Museum fuer Kinder.

HACK MIT! is an exhibition and event about art and new media, with a particular focus on the concept of hacking. The idea is to bring children closed to the new technologies, like computers, videos, televisions, and at the same time associate those technologies to the more traditional art field, from the classical avant-gardes (such as Surrealism, Dadaism, Futurism) to the present. Italian artists and German ones are brought together to realise a project where children can playfully learn to use media. The aim is to provide an approach of using technology in a creative way.

Futuresonic presents Art For Shopping Centres


Three Commissioned Works

Thirty years after Brian Eno’s Music For Airports, Futuresonic presents Art For Shopping Centres, an exhibition of major, world premier artworks, after which you will never look at a shopping centre the same again. Transforming the city into a space of experimentation, freeing urban space, making it strange. Featuring three major new artworks commissioned by Futuresonic 2007:

MediaShed ft’s Methods of Movement, The Duellists: Parkour, or freerunning, involves fluid, uninterrupted movement, adapting motion to obstacles in the environment. Like free-media, freerunning makes use of and re-energises the infrastructure of the city. MediaShed ft Methods of Movement present an acrobatic parkour competition between two late-night traceurs, staged overnight in the Arndale shopping centre, filmed using only the in-house CCTV system, in the first official implementation of the GEARBOX free-media video toolkit, and shown on the screens inside the shopping centre, with an original soundtrack by Hybernation.

GHava{SL} Center for the Arts + Fuse Gallery present


Destroy Television

GHava{SL} Center for the Arts is proud to announce Destroy Television, an interactive virtual art installation by futurist Jerry Paffendorf and metaverse architect Christian Westbrook. This exhibition will occur simultaneously in the metaverse Second Life as well as in NYC at Fuse Gallery. It opens May 23, runs through June 2, 2007. It is curated by Annie Ok of GHava{SL} Center for the Arts.

Born and raised beneath a kitchen sink in Brooklyn, Destroy Television is an avatar in the user-created 3D virtual world of Second Life. But unlike other avatars that are owned and controlled by individuals, Destroy is an expression of everyone who controls and speaks through it at As a result it encompasses many simultaneous voices and motivations, of which any given user can be one. For the duration of the show it will be recording a searchable video lifelog of its experience that visitors can easily explore, edit, and comment on. They can also click through its live online video and visit Destroy as an avatar inside Second Life, surf over to its lifelog afterwards and find themselves in its perfect memory as part of the menagerie.

LA Freewaves: Do you dare support art on the edge?

205A Morning Lane


Temporary Urban Video Interventions, Architecture + Art

205A Morning Lane is a site-specific video installation using a building as a projection screen to explore possibilities of temporary urban video interventions, architecture and art. It marks the end of 205A Morning Lane studio building with two sets of visuals projected to the building’s windows. First floor projection of 205A Morning Lane artists’ eyes closing and second floor projection of artists’ eyes opening – as eyes, window to the soul q the metaphor for cycles – endings and beginnings.

10 Video projectors are distributed in 10 artists’ studios (5 on the first floor and 5 on the second) and projecting directly onto windows from inside – out thus creating two stripes of projections on the main facade. The projected material is changed on a nightly basis (five consecutive nights of projections) to play slower and slower motion so that at the end of projection all eyes close. Continue reading
