 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1. go public!

 The motto for the transmediale.02 asks the question how art using digital
media can intervene into the new public sphere. 'go public!' signifies both
the stock market flotation of a company, and the step into the public arena
- with a project, with information, with a political issue. In different
conferences and panels transmediale.02 will encourage a discussion on the
nature of this shared space of communication and action within the
information society.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2. Public Space Invaders
 conference - 7 February, 16.00 hrs
in cooperation with Bundeszentrale fuer politische Bildung

 Public space is not a control free gathering place for enlightened
citizens; rather it is a technically and highly media equipped system
combining visibility, vigilance and control. The public sphere today is
something which takes place in the pseudo-private spaces of the television,
rather than in urban spaces. In digital space, the border between private
and public data, between communication and information is disappearing. And
yet, we are not only the slaves of mobile communications services, of
biometric systems and public displays. Resourceful artists and media
activists are appropriating the necessary technologies, and develop
creative and critical media for the digital public sphere.
 With: Konrad Becker (at), director of Public Netbase Vienna and
world-information.org; Matthew Fuller (uk), media theorist from London and
co-author of the SMS/radio project TextFM; Tim Pritlove (de) of Berlin's
Chaos Computer Club, coordinator of the Blinkenlights installation; Andy
Bichlbaum of TheYesMen (int), a group of activists who say an irritatingly
loud Yes! to globalisation. Additionally there'll be a video by the
Surveillance Camera Players (us) and a commercial break by ubermorgen.com.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3. Global Public
 conference  7 February, 20.30 hrs
in cooperation with Bundeszentrale fuer politische Bildung

 Globalisation is not merely an economic and political phenomenon, it is
also taking place to a substantial degree in the media, which increasingly
enables a connected audience worldwide to take part live in global events.
The conditions for global media reportage have changed fundamentally over
the past years. The co-existence of satellite, internet, and terrestrial
broadcasting channels has led to the disappearance of the boundaries
between global concerns such as CNN, regional stations such as the Arabic
Al Jazeera, or the media activist network Indymedia. Representatives of
such networks discuss the 'new world order' of broadcasting.
 With Ibrahim M. Helal, Chief Editor "Al Jazeera" and others.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4. Images in Process
 conference  8 February, 16.00 hrs

 Media images in the digital era are no longer static representations of
reality; rather they are temporary constructions based on software and
codes. Images are mixed, sampled, and interpreted technically. The
significance of these images is dependent on the technical and cultural
conditions under which they can be received, reproduced, and manipulated.
The truth and the authenticity of images, which in photography had still
been tied to the immediacy of the moment, can, in the digital flow of
images, only be depicted as a tendency, as a pattern, as a possibility,
which can be eradicated again at any moment by a more recent overwriting.
If you want to report and publicise events, you have to learn to drift with
the image process. History is an interactive account of events; every image
within it is a passing approximation.
 With: Yvonne Spielmann (de) of the Art Academy Braunschweig; Michael Punt
(uk) of University of Wales College Newport; Thomas Y. Levin (us) professor
in Film Studies at Princeton University; Peter Lynch (ca), film maker.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5. Digital Cultural Heritage
 panel  9 February, 12.00 hrs (in German)

 Art and culture live by their confrontation with tradition. The
digitalisation of large areas of our cultural production means that our
society faces the challenge of preserving this most recent inheritance for
us, and for posterity. What will happen when in a few decades the necessary
combinations of hardware, operating systems and software no longer
function? The answers to these questions are not only of great importance
to art historians, but are of interest to the whole of society. From the
annual balance sheet to the computer game; is there any information left
that is non-digital in nature  and are we facing the great post-digital age
of forgetting?
 With: Konrad Becker, Public Netbase Wien, world-information.org; Rudolf
Frieling, ZKM Karlsruhe; Oliver Grau, Humboldt Universitaet Berlin; Hans
Dieter Huber, Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste Stuttgart; Andreas Lange, DiGA
- The Digital Game Archive Berlin.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6. Paper.Hype
 panel - 10. February, 14.00 hrs

 Under the title 'Paper Hype' the transmediale.02 is for the first time
organising a meeting of editors of a number of different European magazines
dealing with digital culture. Representatives from England, France,
Austria, Germany and Italy will introduce their print media and will
discuss the conditions for publishing in the internet era. What does it
mean to produce a magazine, a paper publication about digital culture in an
era of apparently total digitalisation? Mute calls it Proud to be Flesh!
 With Jan Rikus Hillmann, DEBUG, Berlin, zeitung fuer elektronische
lebensaspekte; Christian Hoeller, springerin  Hefte fuer Gegenwartskunst;
Fran Ilich, undo, Mexico; Jean-Yves Leloup, CRASH, Paris; Alessandro
Ludovico, NEURAL, Bari; Pauline van Mourik Broekman, MUTE, London.
Moderation by David Hudson, Berlin.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 7. and

 Software Speculations
 conference - 8 February, 20.30 hrs
Artist presentations, lectures and discussion on the cultural and social
meaning of software. With Matthew Fuller (uk), Manfred Fassler (de),
Margarete Jahrmann (at) Florian Cramer (de), a.o.

 Concepts of Interactive Art

interactivity.
