art in the electronic era
by Kim Bradley

[Digital gurus from around the world recently congregated in Barcelona to take part in "Art in the Electronic Era: Perspectives on a New Esthetic," a 3 1/2-day conference sponsored by the Goethe Institute's local chapter, Barcelona's provincial government and a slew of international institutes. Claudia Giannetti, director of Barcelona's L'Angelot Association for Contemporary Culture, designed the theory-laden program, which mainly featured Europe's electronic elite, including Edmond Couchot, research director of Arts et Technologies de l'Image in Paris, Siegfried Zielinski, director of the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, and Peter Weibel, who curated Ars Electronica in Linz for many years and is currently director of Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum in Graz, Austria. Artists on the roster included pioneering interactive art pundit Jeffrey Shaw, experimental filmmaker Malcolm Le Grice and video-installation artist Antonio Muntadas.-....]

Media Art Net
A project with funding from the German Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) commissioned by Goethe-Institut and Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe

[Media art—by definition multimedia, time-based or process-oriented—cannot be sufficiently mediated in book form. Mainstream art and cultural mediation, still being primarily print-based, do little justice to its specificity. On the other hand, Net-based media have not yet been able to establish platforms that reach more than the usual circle of insiders. Introducing the range of topics related to media and art, «Media Art Net» thus aims at establishing an Internet structure that offers highly qualified content by granting free access at the same time. Tendencies of art and media technology development throughout the twentieth century serve as the background for promoting historic and contemporary perspectives on artistic work in and with the media. A combination of diverse representational modes will offer a condensed, attractively presented multimedia focus for the interested 'surfer,' as well as profusely documented in depth information for users specifically involved in research. The main objective is, therefore, to establish theoretically and audio-visually convincing forms of relationships and references that cross the boundaries of genre. A consistently bilingual version (German/English) further transmits the international character of this undertaking.]

Electronic Civil Disobedience
From: (Steve Barnes)
Electronic Civil Disobedience*

Critical Art Ensemble

[One essential characteristic that sets late capitalism apart from other political and economic forms is its mode of representing power: What was once a sedentary concrete mass has now become a nomadic electronic flow. Before computerized information management, the heart of institutional command and control was easy to locate. In fact, the conspicuous appearance of the halls of power was used by regimes to maintain their hegemony. Castles, palaces, government bureaucracies, corporate home offices, and other architectural structures stood looming in city centers, daring malcontents and underground forces to challenge their fortifications. These structures, bespeaking an impregnable and everlasting solidity, could stop or demoralize contestational movements before they started. Indeed, the prominence of this spectacle was a double-edged sword; once the opposition became desperate enough (due to material privation or to symbolic collapse of a given regime's legitimacy), its revolutionary force had no problem finding and confronting the powerholders. If the fortifications were breached, the regime would most likely collapse. Within this broad historical context emerged the general strategy for civil disobedience.....]

The Aesthetics of Virtual Worlds

[The computerization of culture leads to the spatialization of all information, narrative, and even time. ALL cultural representations and experiences are being turned into 3D objects. This
trend manifests itself in a variety of ways....]
