Published on occasion of the transmediale.08 (Berlin's festival for art and digital culture) dedicated to "exploring the theme of conspiracy as an artistic methodology the festival hosts a broad and internationally acclaimed grop of artists, media activists and academics working within the realm of digital art and culture in ways which may be read as elaborating upon and challenging our understanding of collaborative and network practice. As such transmediale.08 looks to the cross-disciplinary tinkerers, utopian spelunkers, conspiratorial hoaxsters and stealth tacticians who question, and bypass the hidden codes of conduct and assumed truths entrenched within our information driven cultures of communications and ideology....Art documents produced specially for conspire. include "Red ant mother--meet starfish nation, an allegorical montage of political images by Naeem Mohaimen, "Peenemunde - diagrams for an erased, historical apparatus" by Martin Howse and the performative "Signature-Project" by Janez Jansa, Janez Jansa and Janez Jansa which will transform each individual parcours into a unique signed art work. And where the call to "conspire!" is a lonely and ardent task, personal manifestos to purpoted or failed actions are reflected in Julius Koller's autobiographical statement on anti-happening actions or Alessandro Ludovico's "Thieves of the Invisible" confession." Well-preserved volume is bound in original wrappers.
