the intention of ncc48, the congress is the medium. Over a time-line of 48
hours international artists, scientists, theorists, computer experts and
the scheme-team will discuss, report and reflect on topics succeeding one
another in a temporal rhythm and forming the "content back bone" of ncc48.
There will also be concurrent workshops, chats, lectures and presentations
of networkart projects. 

The whole programm of ncc 48 is set up as a network of interrelated issues
addressed by the also interrelated designed contributions of all
co-operators, contributors and the audience. 

The following 48 HOUR SPEAKERS have been invited to address those
interelations and to constantly moderate the whole process of carrying out
the ncc 48 netART community congress both on site and online:

The application of open source models on the internet in "net" architecture
& "net" art may well be one of the most innovative scenarios for the future
and will radically change the current situation. But how compatible is the
"open source model", with all its guidelines ("open source definition") and
as a working model,  with net art projects? How could the further
development of "free net art" be conceived in analogy to the development of
"free software"?

Once again, the metaphor 'web' has to be tested: In which way have the
channels of communication and electronic exchangeable forms changed the
idea of what neighbourhood, seen as a cultural overlapping and
transgression, can be? Why are the often geographically closest regions
basically a blank spot on the map of net based communication and
production? Does it still make any sense to think about processes of
cultural exchange in this way?

_transfer.net_ deals with the framework conditions of everyday/popular net
cultures (i.e. net cultures having, among other things, always some sort of
economic motivation)  and the increasing  intermeshing of entertainment and
consumption cultures on the one hand and net cultures on the other. How are
the popularization of connectivity ("get connected", Nokia) and the
individualization of presence on the net  ("your personal homepage")
affecting the framework conditions for all types of net art? Is it possible
to maintain a counter-cultural net art or community concept in a time when
net-based discourses are increasingly becoming merchandise-type discourses
 ("satisfy your lust", Siemens)?

The project is mainly dedicated to the relationships between old (physical)
and new (simulated) spaces -- referring to spaces in their capacity as
cultural terrain. How can narratives be delivered in new spaces? How are
constructions of  "We" developing in these new spaces? What does "presence"
mean under such conditions? What does "public" mean and what would  "the
private" be under such conditions?
PARTICIPANTS: Dzevad Karahasan; Beat Mazenauer, CH, die flut (Thomas
Ballhausen, Xaver Bayer, Julia Hadwiger, A); hugi (Claus D. Volko, D),

Although the creative process is liberated from the limitations of matter,
it nevertheless is dependent on the medium of the work. Comprehensive
technical knowledge is imperative. Furthermore a theoretical programmatic
grasp of net.spaces is necessary, whereby techno-aesthetics in its severity
places the highest demands. And in the end the question: do the present
instruments of discursive forums (such as mailings lists) suffice or should
we advocate "The Birth of the Net-Gallery" which describes that system of
power, deciding on art and non-art? Probing the necessity of elaborating a
productive and distributive apparatus that is to envelope the net-work of
art (collectors, dealers, curates, critics, ncc48 organizers, etc.).
