From September 17 through 29 Rotterdam will host the Dutch Electronic
Art Festival (DEAF96), the biggest annual event in The Netherlands
dealing with recent international developments in art and media
technology. DEAF96 is an initiative of V2_Organisation, in collaboration
with Inter-Society for Electronic Arts and R96, the New Temptation.
DEAF96 bears the title DIGITAL TERRITORIES and focuses on the urban
community in relation to computer networks and their virtual
communities. These networks, including the Internet, create new social,
political and cultural spaces. Computer networks become more and more
intertwined with our daily working and living environment. We
communicate and exchange information through networks and use their
infrastructure to produce "goods" and "ideas."
