Party Launches "10,000 Acts of Artistic Mediation"
Experimental Party, "the party of experimentation,"
an initiative of the US Department of Art & Technology,
is announcing a bold, new campaign to
encourage "10,000 Acts of Artistic Mediation" across
the nation in anticipation of the 2004 election.
Control of Media
confront corporate control of mass media, so that a new century
is spared new horrors of CNN - the issue Americans should
care most about. We will appropriate with magisterial fearlessness,
transforming CNN, MSNBC, and Fox into magical images, and
bring about the systematic reordering of the senses through
the deconstruction of live, broadcast media.
post-apocalyptic times, which now supercede the post-modern
in the post-9/11 21st century, we are redefining the role
of the artist as a mediator and political player whose reflections,
ideas, sensibilities, and abilities take significant action
on the world stage. We see this as a way of moving toward
a totally wired, out of control system of knowledge-potential
slamming into your wanting-it body until it gives in.
