Experiment with the paper form documentation of public event as being part of the event itself. Using the lo-res tools (dictaphone, digital camera, dtp software, printer) the final printed publication included the risks such as inconsistency, absence of criticism, shortlife concepts, and even blah-blah statements. The magazine features interviews with Dirk Paesmans (jodi.org), Maja Kuzmanovic (f0.am), Darko Fritz (media artist and curator), Andrei Smirnov (Theremin Center) and bits from IRC moderated by Alejandra Nunez Perez and Yves Degoyon during the panels on beauty in the age of digital art, transdisciplinary practices and media art in eastern and central Europe. Fifteen copies of the magazine were printed and given away at the spot in MAP Brussels.

Rebekka Would you like to situate yourself in the vast field of Media Art to begin with?

Darko In 1988 I started working together with a group of friends, coming from different artistic backgrounds, on computer installations without really knowing what we were busy with. At that time there was a strong tradition of video art. Then, through experimenting, we found out that there also was a strong tradition of computer art that had been completely interrupted between 1960 and 1980. Computer art and video art were then completely separate fields.
