For the first time the content of the hard copy of this newsletter differs
from the version that was sent by E-mail. Around May 1st we distributed a
special edition of the newsletter in an electronic version only. 
The reason for this is simple: it takes much more time and effort to produce
and mail the hard copy. Since there were several interesting announcements
and calls for participation with imminent deadlines, in addition to the fact
that we wanted to redistribute the program outline of ISEA'95 as quickly 
as possible, we elected to produce the special. This case proves that it is
worthwhile to get access to the net irrespective of the trendyness and hype 
surrounding the recent world-wide "discovery" of the Internet.

It has taken some time but we finally have our own home page on the World
Wide Web, thanks to Dirk Boon. It contains the General Information on the
Inter-Society, information on ISEA Symposia, links to the current, last and
next symposium (or symposia) and last month's ISEA newsletter, as well as
most of the preceding newsletters.  We are not putting the current newsletter 
on the Web, because that is a privilege for ISEA members only. Our Web site
will soon serve as a mirror-site for Paul Brown's Fine Art Forum. For our WWW
address, see above.


ISEA-Japan (Yoshiuki Abe) has a new address. Information on ISEA and 
ISEA '95 can be obtained in Japanese.

MetaForum II: NO BORDERS - Budapest networking conference
Forwarded by Geert Lovink

Networking has played a role in the evolution of human culture since humans
have been communicating: economy, language, religion, roads, postal
systems, telephones, radio, and television all function as networks. Modern
technology has enhanced networking to a point where infomation is
transferred at nearly the speed of electrons, theoretically the speed of

As networking via the computer becomes more common, certain borders seem to
disappear while others emerge just as quickly in the form of parameters on
the technology, bandwidths and access. Technology is tearing down
longstanding artistic and creative borders and forcing artists and critics
to question and form new ones. Networking has arrived at the threshold of
the global society.

Given the importance of these issues, MetaForum II / NO BORDERS / Budapest
Networking Conference will comprise artists, computer experts and
enthusiasts, media experts, theoreticians, and writers, and provide an
opportunity to examine the nature of networking, as well as place
networking within a historical context, and discuss its future potential.
The title, NO BORDERS, refers to the key themes of the conference: how
networking defines and transcends borders; geographic, linguistic and
technical, and who controls and enforces these borders.
Lectures, workshops, and presentations will be conducted by an array of
national and international guests. In keeping with the spirit of MetaForum
94,  NO BORDERS will create a platform for the dissection and discussion of
networking and the implications of the incredible impact it has had and
will continue to have on the way humans communicate. As the world undergoes
a transition to a global culture, every country, including Hungary, must
participate in the creation of that culture, if it is to be truly global.

NO BORDERS, organized by the Media Research Foundation and the Intermedia
Department of the Hungarian Fine Arts Academy, will take place on October
6th, 7th, & 8th, 1995, at the Academy of Fine Arts as a part of Budapest's
annual Autumn Festival of the Arts.

 Conference topics
1. The sociology of the network
(network etiquette, customs, spoken  vs. written language, privacy vs. free
access, protection of data, copyrights, crime, games)

2. Cyber-democracy
( network politics, the information economy, censorship, hyper-democracy,
lobby and interest groups, populism and solidarity in the network)

3. Analogous networks
(Mail Art, the postal system, telephones, the railway, electricity,
highways, canals).

In addition to the lectures, workshops, and presentations, audience access
to the internet will be provided through on-site computer terminals, as
well as computer links to other locations throughout Hungary. No Borders
will conclude with a teleconference between the audience and guests, and
the McLuhan Center in Toronto, Canada.

1) to provide information and real on-line experience to the audience.
2) to establilsh a dialogue concerning the present and future implications
of networking culture, both nationally and internationally.
3) to provide  Hungarians working with, or interested in, networking
technology, the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with national and
international experts.

MetaForum 94
MetaForum 94 was designed to stimulate growth and interest in new
interactive technology such as CD-ROM, Hypertext, Internet and World Wide
Web, as well as provide a platform for discussion.  The invited guests
included Heath Bunting, Gyorgy Kabdebo, George Legrady, Andras Nyiro,
Salvatore Vanasco, VPRO television Netherlands, as well as many others.  In
addition to the lectures, workshops and discussions conducted by the
guests, there was an on-site CD-ROM Library.  MetaForum 94 was sponsored by
Apple, the British Council, and The Goethe Institute, and took place in
October  of 1994 as a part of Budapest's annual Aututmn  Festival 
of the Arts.

Media Research Foundation
The Media Reserach Foundation was officially founded in 1990, by a group of
artists, historians, and theroticians dedicated to art, culture,  and new
technology.  Since its founding, the MRF  has organized and participated in
various art events and conferences; The Media Are With us-The role of
television in the Romanian revolution, 1990; Linz Ars Electronica Introduces
Itself, 1993; MetaForum 94, an international conference on multimedia.  The
MRF has also actively supported artists working with new media, and the
Intermedia Department of the Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest. Cultural
foundations that have provided sponsorship of these events have included
The British Council, The Dutch Embassy, The French Institute, The Austrian
Cultural Institut, The Goethe Institute and the Soros SCCA.

Intermedia Department
The Intermedia Department, which has been active since the political
changes in 1990, gained offical status as a department in 1992 at the 150
year old Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest.  Since its realization, the
department has encouraged students to explore new media and has provided
them with a number of  international lecturers and visting professors.

Autumn Festival
Budapest's annual Autumn Festival of the Arts  presents national and
international contemporary Arts including; music, theatre, dance, fine arts,
film, literature, intermedial works, as well as a signifigant selection of
independent, alternative, and experimental works. The two week festival
begins in late September and ends in October.

Internationales Symposium
Ueber die Kultur der Computernetze
On cultural aspects of computer networks

Hamburg, Germany 
1- 3 November 1995

The international data networks and global electronic communications
are also becoming increasingly meaningful in Germany: Newspapers are
reporting, television programs are pulling these themes into their
agendas, the 'Datenautobahn' is finding it's way into the daily
vocabulary. The networks are expanding and are beginning to integrate
more and more participants. Political promises and economic interests
are found around every corner: 'Video on demand', interactive
television, multimedia communications, or even the paradise of
'Cyberspace' are the keywords with which consumers are lured as future
beneficiaries. But insecurities concerning the future social, cultural,
and political meaning of expanded communicative relations are growing
parallel to these developments.

INTERFACE 3 witholds from this euphoria and brushes off the image of
a sales fair of new products and services. The symposium will instead
meet the hectic activity in an invitation to reflect and discuss, upon
a high niveau, the phenomena at hand.
The philosophical, aesthetic, and ethical foundations within the
three salons of the symposium (Thinking Networks - Circulating Art -
Commitments) build the center of INTERFACE 3. Of utmost importance in
this discussion is the movement beyond the borders. From a variety of
lands, natural scientists, engineers, arts and humanitie= s minded, and
critics, will mutually debate the present and future of technically
mediated communications and trace out initiatives and criteria toward
an emancipatory practice.

On the occasion of INTERFACE 3

1.11. - 3.12.1995
Exhibition in the Kunstverein Delicate Constructions - The idea of
networks indicates a significant change in our culture. A new idea of
authorship, of the subject, is emer- ging; chance and necessity, means
and ends - terms defining our thinking - are transforming. Electronic
media contribute in a crucial way to this development. The exhibition
at the Kunstverein wants to visualize this process. Digital
artwork will be in dialogue with "analogue" ones of more traditional
artistic media.

Exhibition in the Kunsthaus - The Hamburger Kunsthaus is
planning, in cooperation with Ludwig Seyfarth, an exhibition "The
Picturesque Network", which will question the visual imagination of
electronic media and networks. The artistic reflection of electronic
communications has lead to a more or less language based orientation
upon social and scientific discourses. In contrast to this, will
emphasize the investigation of existing network imageconcepts and the
roles they play. Rather than a concentration on "Computer art", the
"imaginary competence" of digital communications will be the subject
of debate.
