Symposium in 3 "heuristic historical phases":
-the 18th century – man, along with all other creatures, is embedded in an Economy of Nature (Linné).
-19th century - this wholeness seems to be lost: the discovery of ‘ambiences’ results in the duplication of heterogeneous environments in sociology as well as in biology.
-20th century onwards - these different environments tend to be colonised more and more by the term ‘system’.

The Great Rehearsal:
A symposium and week of events
on the World Revolution of '68 and its legacies

September 17-25, 2008

1968 was a world revolution. From Mexico City to Tokyo, Paris to Prague, Columbia University to Berkeley, it was a revolutionary event that at once failed and transformed the world. The process it put into place continues today. 1968, the long '68, altered fundamental balances of power and set the stage for today's new movements. '68 was a great rehearsal. For what, it is up to us to decide.

The Global Commons Foundation, PM Press, and Historians Against the War invite you to a week of discussions and events on the worldwide events of 1968 and their legacies.

"After Nature" surveys a landscape of wilderness and ruins, darkened by uncertain catastrophe. It is a story of abandonment, regression, and rapture—an epic of humanity and nature coming apart under the pressure of obscure forces and not-so-distant environmental disasters. Bringing together an international and multigenerational group of artists, filmmakers, writers, and outsiders, the exhibition depicts a universe in which humankind is being eclipsed and new ecological systems struggle to find a precarious balance.

São Paulo creates the "Clean City" law that bans billboards, ads on taxi's and buses and imposes strict limits on shopfront signs. It is no surprise that Clear Channel is claiming this "illegal".

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
