***********************************

summary:
Violence Online Festival is
a New Media art project
reflecting the phenomenon of "Violence",
curated, organized and created in Flash by
Agricola de Cologne, curator and media artist operating
from Cologne/Germany. As an ongoing project
Violence Online Festival is developed for being
presented in future in the framework of physical and
virtual media festivals and exhibitions.
For each event a new project version will be created
adjusted to the actual needs
including additions of new artists/works
and other changes.

***********************************
Version 2.0 of Violence Online Festival includes following
new artists who replace some others
from the previous versions 1.0,1.1:
Jody Zellen, G.H Hovagimyan, Chiara Passa, Lucia Leuci
Katrinka Moore, Tjader-Knight Inc., Franck de las Mercedes,
Lucky Pierre, Nikki Johnson, Johanna Thompson,
Shay Kun, Andrew Francois, Bruce Petty, Mason Petrie
Marcello Mercado
***********************************

introduction:
The human character contains both a light and a dark side, good and bad,
individually manifested. Deeply rooted is a dark-sided
element: Violence.
In happy surroundings, it becomes hardly visible and in
less happy surroundings - either of a physical, psychological,
environmental, ideological, economic or political nature -
nearly automatically a kind of survival
strategy with all the known consequences we see
manifested in conflicts on a small or large scale.
Violence is present anywhere, hidden or sleeping,
hesitating, waiting or in action, starting from simple
mobbing via verbalor physical attacks, the bandwidth has no end.

Nowadays, globalization, social injustice,
unemployment, increasing wealth on one side and
on the opposite increasing poverty (without mentioning some
causes) produce a climate where violence has a fertile
soil. From the attack on 9/11 in the USA, people from
the Western civilization became painfully aware that
security of any kind is a mere illusion; not only the
internal, but also the external enemy is present anywhere.

Artists are said to be the consciousness of a nation or society
as they reflect the actual state of the psychological and physical
environment.
When this state is penetrated by violence, nobody is surprised that
violence becomes a universal subject for artistic reflection, the difference
may
only be the view on it and its perception depending on
the respective cultural background.

'Art and violence both seem to stem from the abstract: that place beyond
logic, the realm of the emotion. When they intersect we are simultaneously
repelled and attracted, frightened and excited. Historically this meeting
has been wrought with complexity, and as cultural violence in every society
increases, we are prevented by paranoia, censorship and ethical demands from
asking, and sometimes even posing, some of the most important questions
violence and art together and separately produce: how is violence
represented, and what or how much of it do we need to resist the cultivation
of fear and the encouragement of dependency? Is violence a tool, a process
or a result? When are artistic portrayals of violence justifiable? As
intellectual exercise, ritual, or spiritual enhancement? For other purposes?
Or are they never justifiable? Is violence in art an action, reaction, or
reflection? ' (quotation: festival statement).

How different the results of an artistic reflection can be is
shown through the Violence Online Festival, a New Media
online exhibition project curated and organized
as an individual event by Agricola de Cologne
including more than 150 artists from
30 countries presenting their work. It forms a
dynamic collaborative art work presenting very
individual visions and use of media.

The relevance of violence becomes visible also through
the high quality standard of all the included works. Each
of them represents another aspect of violence - caught
in textual poetry, running as a video or embedded in an
interactive environment of a net-based art work.

In reaction to the key role (mass) media plays by displaying and even
promoting
violence, a new environment (interface) has been created for Violence
Online Festival, which houses and hosts the art works within a virtual media
company named "Violence Media Incorporated".
By dividing the company into different departments (eg.
"Violence for Happiness" , "Violence Marketing" or "Violence Broadcasting"),
it becomes clear that their meaning
has a rather ironic or sarcastic character, which gives
the embedded art works a new meaning.

While surfing through this environment, the visitor is forced to ask and
give answers, and becomes slowly a part of this network of art through his
reflections and changes of perception.

Le Musee divisioniste - PRESS RELEASE


*************
PRESS RELEASE
*************

"Le Musee di-visioniste"
www.le-musee-divisioniste.org
is happy to launch
the first cross-platform online exhibition
of NewMediaArtProjectNetwork
in cooperation with "A Virtual Memorial
www.a-virtual-memorial.org

entitled:
"Focus:x? - {self}_presentation"

curated and created by Agricola de Cologne.
******************************************
The exhibition is open since
Wednesday, 25 September 2002 and will
run until the end of the year 2002.

******************************************
Focus: x? ...........

is a new type of future curatorial project planning of
NewMediaArtProjectNetwork.
It is planned to organize several times a year
cross-platform projects focussed on a special subject/theme,
including the different sites of
the corporate members of the network as an exhibitions space.

The first project of this series, entitled
"Focus: x? - {self}_presentation"
combines "Edition 05" of the
"Featured Artists" series on "Le Musee di-visioniste"
and the featured project
"Mirror at the Bottom - artists portraiting themselves" (see below)
organized earlier this year by "A Virtual Memorial"
www.a-virtual-memorial.org.

"Focus: X?... can be accessed via the startpage of
www.le-musee-divisioniste.org

********************************************

"Edition 05/Featured Artists" features following three female artists:

1. Coco Gordon - the New York based cross-media artist

2. Melissa Ulto - the New York based video artist

3. Valeri Rose - the young Tampa/Florida based artist

*******************************************

1. The most comprehensive feature represents
"Coco Gordon's {self}_presentation".
In her exciting life Coco Gordon,
New York based, but of Italian origin,
used self-presenting
as an artistic language manifested in performances,
installations or photo sessions.
One could count her to the Fluxus movement,
the variety of her art working surprises the viewer
always with the non-expected.
The "feature" showing a selection of more than
100 works originating from the years 1958 until 2002,
is an ongoing project, which will be updated
and extended from time to time in future.

2. Melissa Ulto, New York based as well,
chose video as her favorite artistic medium
for starting presenting herself.
Her 13 minutes-video "UnMade Movie"
represents an online video exhibit
as an exploration of subculture sexuality,
as depicted by b-movies
and pulp fiction,
mixed with cyber culture.

3. Valeri Rose, an emerging artist from Tampa/Florida/USA
took another way of self-presenting:
her personal artist's homepage.
The combination of half non-commercial
and half commercial offers a variform
view on the artistic intensions and background
including also some ironic aspects.

*************************************************

"Mirror at the Bottom -
Artists portraiting themselves"

curated by Agricola de de Cologne.

"Artists' self-portraits belong to the most fascinating artistic formats
since here the viewer gets a lot of more information about an artist than
through his working in other type of formats.
The view through the mirror at the bottom offers a critical reflection
either connected to an ideal image or its contrary.
154 artists submitted about 300 works. Each artist represents in his
individuality a different unique approach to self-reflection and to art as
such.
This online show encompasses a wide range of media and individual styles.
It represents a composition from virtual, net based "new media" to
traditional, physical
"old media" (but digitalized) artworks, and, in this way, an art work of
itsown."

2002 - "Second volet de Java Series"

Apres le succes de la premiere rubrique intitulee "Situation actuelle du
NetArt italien"
en ligne depuis le 15 juillet 2002, JavaMuseum prepare une nouvelle rubrique
pour le mois de decembre 2002 entierement consacree au NetArt francais.

La France, qui a joue un role important dans le developpement de l'art
contemporain, a perdu sa dimension de leader, en particulier dans le nouvel
environnement virtuel de l'Internet ou la langue francaise disparait au
profit de l'anglais qui represente la langue la plus communement utilisee
dans les nouvelles technologies.

En ce sens, la France fait aujourd'hui plus figure d'une ile isolee dans un
vaste ocean que partie integree de la communaute globale.

La plus grande partie du public ne comprenant pas le francais, les artistes
qui utilisent exclusivement cette langue pour leurs travaux en ligne, sont
en un sens exclus d'une plus large audience.

Cette situation est plus que dommageable, puisqu'elle empeche la plupart des
artistes francophones de talent d'etre visible par le public mondial de
l'Internet.

La nouvelle rubrique sur JavaMuseum souhaite contribuer a changer cette
situation en attirant l'attention du public sur cette scene du NetArt
francais generalement meconnue, meme si quelques rares net.artistes francais
ont su se forger une reputation internationale.

*********************************

Appel aux artistes d'origine francaise ou residents en France

Chacun pourra soumettre jusqu'a trois travaux.

Toutes les propositions seront prises en compte.
Il n'y a aucune restriction quant aux technologies utilisees, sujets ou
contenus.
Les artistes francophones de Belgique sont plus que les bienvenus.

Date limite d'inscription : 31 Octobre 2002
La "rubrique" sera en ligne en decembre 2002
et ce jusqu'a la fin du second volet de Java Series
sur www.javamuseum.org, soit jusqu'au printemps 2003.

Apres quoi elle restera consultable en ligne de facon permanente comme une
source d'information sur le NetArt.
Les mises a jour et les ajouts resteront toujours les bienvenus dans un
souci d'actualite.

JavaMuseum -

(Java=Joint Advanced Virtual Affairs)

2002 - "2nd of Java Series"

After the successful start with the first
feature entitled "Actual Positions of Italian NetArt"
online since 15 July 2002,
JavaMuseum is planning another "Feature"
to go online in the Christmas month December 2002
which is focussed exclusively on French NetArt.

France, once an important motor in the development of
contemporary art, has lost a leading role,
particularly also in the new virtual environment of Internet
since French as a language is reduced to mere local relevance:
English represents the common language in all computer aided work.
In this way, France seem to be rather separated on a small island in a wide
ocean
than integrated as a part of the global community.
Artists using French exclusively as a language for their net based art
working
are, in fact, excluded from the public perception.

This is certainly more than a pity, since the current situation hides
most of the talented French speaking artists from the global public of the
Internet.

The Feature on JavaMuseum would like to help to change the situation
by focussing on this widely unknown Netart scene, even if some few
French net.artists are internationally well known.
One essential problem, however, will remain,
that the majority of public will not
unterstand French language.

*********************************
Call for Entries
Deadline 31 October 2002
*********************************

Call for Artists originating from France or
with residency in France
for the Online-Feature
"Actual positions of French NetArt"

The project is intending to initiate a comprehensive collection of
French net.artists and net.projects.

Up to three works (URLs) may be submitted
All submissions will be included.
There is no restriction concerning used technology, subject or content.
Welcome are also contributions of French speaking artists from Belgium.

Deadline: 31 October 2002
The "Feature" will go online
in December 2002 and will run until
the end of 2nd of Java series
on www.javamuseum.org, i.e. Spring 2003.

Afterwards it will remain for permanent online as an art resource. Updates
and later additions will be always welcome in order to stay most actual.
For submitting an art work please use the submission form.
