> breaking point for the organization. But we were wrong.
> A couple of weeks ago we were told by the Malmo City Art council that
> they turned down our application for funding for our activities for
> 2005. We had applied for 180 000 sek (20000 euro), to cover basic
> costs such as rent and phones etc, and a couple of smaller
> exhibitions. According to our plans additional funding could be raised
> for other activities from other sources during the year.
> Electrohypes application for activities was also turned down last
> year, the period were we were heavily involved in the preparation for
> the ongoing exhibition in Malmo Konsthall. This together wit the fact
> that we also was denied project funding for the ongoing exhibition
> itself in Malmo Konsthall make us really disappointed by the attitude

> The presentation will focus on the recent projects created by

> (www.intima.org/ballettikka) and wPack (www.intima.org/wpack),
> which are using impossible connections to develop the possible
> strategies of resistance and disobedience. The projects are
> participating in the already existing protocols of
> communication, but without being servile to them, opening up
> links between emotionality and technology, production and
> ethics, desire and organization, imagination and institution.
> The distribution of politics and intimacy without any reason and
> purpose, with the use of limited, incestuous, defined and
> controlled protocols is a dystopia and a nonservile revolt to
> the world of capital, which can be disarmed only with the use of
> its own incestuous tactics.
