Hallo everybody,

We are organizing an exhibition project at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien
in Berlin, sponsored by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds, with support from the
Institut fuer Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa). The exhibition is opening on
Firday, 9 May 2008 and is going on till 22 June.

Exhibition's topic is HACK.Fem.EAST - Women and technology in networks
in the Eastern countries. We would like to involve women from Slovenia,
Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Rumenia, Hungary, Poland, Czech
Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Latvia and the other Baltic countries to
present their work. You can find the project's description above: main
topics are media, art and hacking.

Central idea is to involve artists to develop independetely their
concept in one of the 14 rooms of the Kunstraum Bethanien and be part of
the network formed by the all groups and arsists/activists.
We have already contacted some people, but we are still looking for
interesting projects to add in the exhibition.

Women and technology in networks.

Exhibition, workshops, conference.
A project curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli and Gaia Novati.
9 May - 22 June 2008, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien Berlin
Sponsored by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds, with support from the Institut
fuer Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa).

The exhibition project in Berlin, HACK.Fem.EAST, seeks to present
experimental and artistic practices of artists and activists working in
digital networks in Eastern Europe.

The focus of the exhibition is on presenting a use of media located
somewhere between hacking, art and activism which is driven forward by
an international counterculture and avant-garde: the main protagonists
are women or projects in which women play an important role.

The aim of the project is to provide and to develop a network platform.
This will be achieved through five elements: the exhibition, the
workshops (Free Space), a conference, a publication in newspaper format,
and a website bringing the aspects of the project together.

Existing networks from 11 countries are at the heart of the project and
form the basis of the exhibition. A total of 11 networks will be invited
to the various rooms of the Kunstraumes Kreuzberg/Bethanien to introduce
their work, their strategies and their aims in the form of
installations, documentations and presentations. The result is a
"network of networks", visualized in the form of video screenings,
installations, computer presentations and documents.

The activists will be offering a weekly workshop (Free Space) throughout
the duration of the exhibition. The workshops will be based on the
respective presentations in the exhibition as well as on and aims and
activities that have been developed further in the context of the project.

A conference held at the outset of the project is intended to bring the
lines and networks together and discuss on women perspective in the
Eastern cultural scenario. Its aim is to provide a forum for a form of
politics based on radical invention - media and internet art projects,
performances, network platforms, software development, artistic coding,
organisation of media festivals, etc. As part of the publicity for the
exhibition, a Berlin daily newspaper (taz) will be publishing a
so-called NGO-supplement in an edition of 30.000 copies to coincide with
the opening. It will include articles that provide an introduction to
the subject and give details regarding the programme.

An integral component of the project is of course the website, with an
up-to-date and open presentation of the project's processes and
developments, summarizing them and putting them up for discussion.
