Eastern Europe is running out of women!

The relationship between men and women can serve as a seismograph of the condition and identity of a society. For this reason the current print issue of "Report" focuses on the fascinating theme of "Women in the East and West".

Title story:

Find reports about a village in Slovakia where, in the most literal sense of the phrase, women are "running out", about courageous social workers who defy both the pimps and clients involved in roadside prostitution between the Czech Republic and Germany, and an interview with Russian journalist Jevgenija Albaz who is on various "death lists" in Internet (as the late Anna Politkovskaja once was).

This time "Report" is designed by Croatian artist Sanja Ivekovic with her collage work "The Black File" (1979). Incidentally, this artist will be represented at this year's "documenta 12".

You can read more stories online or watch "The Black File" on http://www.kontakt.erstebankgroup.net/report/galleries/Issue02_07_The+Black+File_Sanja+Ivekovic/en, or get a copy of "Report" free of charge and fresh off the presses at kontakt_(at)_kontakt.erstebankgroup.net

“Report”, the “Kontakt” magazine, provides information about art, human sciences and social affairs in Central and Eastern Europe. On the web you can additionally find information about the “Kontakt” projects and programme, an events calendar for Central and Eastern Europe, and “Kontakt” radio.

scope II, Sites and Subjects, narrating heritage, International Conference, Vienna (Austria), 28-29 September, 2006

Cultural inheritance and its different stories will come into focus at the international conference scopeII, which takes place in Vienna on 28. - 29. September 2006.

To the topic "Sites and Subjects, narrating heritage" a number of prominent scientists and experts from all over the world will bring new impulses into the current debate of intangible cultural heritage.

Different cultures connect different stories with one cultural object. Thus stories (contexts) become as important as the objects themselves. The UNESCO has reacted to this theoretical turn of understanding culture and recently ratified the convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Heritage.

After Scope I concerned itself with "Information vs Meaning" in 1999 "Sites and Subjects, narrating heritage" is the second event within the scope conferences, organized by uma information technology.
