art and technology in the era of digital communications

On May 21st and 22nd, in Teatro Miela, Trieste, Italy, a gentle
conversation is being organized by Ljubljana Digital Media Lab
with the title " per se".

The direct context is the festival "Teatro Telematico" that is
dedicated to the crossroads between art and technology in the era of
digital communications, with the special emphasis on the east-west

Formaly, the meeting is a day & 1/2 long closed brainstorming
session, moderated only in the direction of allowing everybody to say
a word, and with the public panel discussion the second afternoon
where some of the articulated dilemmas will be presented to the
broader audience of the Festival (with a public debate, hopefully).

The list of participants available in this moment includes the
following nice people:

Adele Eisenstein, C3, Budapest
Walter van der Cruijsen,, Amsterdam
Alexei Shulgin, WWWart center, Moscow
Oliver Frommel, Ars electronica Center, Linz
Andreas Broeckmann, V2, Rotterdam
