Davide Grassi and Igor Stromajer (Problemarket.com - the Problem Stock Exchange) will officially open dPAPd - the Displaced Problemarket.com Art-Problems Department in Frankfurt. They will do so within the frame of Manifesta 4, the European Biennale of Contemporary Art, which is an important international event in the field of contemporary art, already very problematic itself, and combining a huge number of contemporary artists, experiencing different problems of theory, production, exhibition and creation. Davide Grassi and Igor Stromajer are sure that this is the perfect time and place for dPAPd to start its mission. Special guest of dPAPd at Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt will be Mr. Igor Zabel, Head Curator of the Modern Gallery in Ljubljana, Director of Manifesta 3 and Member of the Manifesta International Board, who will present a special problem with the title: "The very idea of Manifesta in danger!" Davide Grassi and Igor Stromajer, legitimately and in accordance with their duties, are going to donate this problem to the honoured members of the Manifesta committee (Problemarket.com

- Problem Stock Exchange will bestows total ownership and legal rights of disposal of this problem upon the honoured members of the Manifesta committee for an unlimited amount of time). - Visit dPAPd e-Form to submit your artistic or art-related problem! http://www.problemarket.com/aboutus.html
The main tasks of dPAPd are:

- To organize the international free market of artistic and art-related problems. - To monitor the stock exchange floor of artistic and art-related problems. - To continuously co-operate with international institutions dealing with artistic and art related problems.

- To ensure and to secure the profit made from trading with these problems. - To analyse the market for global and local needs for these problems in the future.

- To offer a legal structure for the international art-problems law, concerning trading with these problems and to influence local governments to adopt state laws in order to help companies trading with artistic problems to get their appropriate positions in the markets.

- To work on a global plan, an intelligent network of other newly-established centers, institutions and departments worldwide, dealing and trading with artistic and art-related problems. dPAPd in Frankfurt is also going to function as a corporate nerve headquarters, documentation center and archives for transactions and financial initiatives, regarding trading and other business related operations concerning artistic and art-related problems.

“BRAINSCORE” Slovenia Authors: Darij Kreuh, Davide Grassi

Is a system for incorporeal communication. Communication codes, which we developed through consideration of social aspects, are becoming old-fashioned and awkward due to increasing complexity of information technology. While until recently the body presented some help in communication as a gestural interface, it now faces great incompatibility and apathy in transferring and mediating information.
Thereby basic codes, which alter perception of communication phenomena, are changing.
DEAR FRIENDS! We would like to invite you to the premiere of Brainscore, interactive performance in a virtual reality environment.
Premiere: Thursday, 21. 9. 2000, at 9 pm Re-runs: 22., 23., 26. and 28. 9. at 9 pm
Computer programming: Tadej Fius Eye-movement tracking system: Iztok Lapanja Production: FORUM Ljubljana Co-production: Cankarjev dom, KID Kibla, Kapelica Gallery
The BRAINSCORE project deals with the research of communication patterns and the interface enabling the human body and the global information space to connect. It is a performance for two operators, in which incorporeal communication is used as the starting point for creating a controlled communication system.
The system is based on the use of brain waves and eye movement for performing basic commands while defining a new digital discourse in virtual space without using the traditional and generally established ways of communication (thus, socially recognized and conventional communication codes are abandoned – speech, body gestures etc.).
http://www.cd-cc.si/kultura/brain1.htm --http://www.kibla.org/kibla/brainscore.html
Workshops Incorporeal communication can be tested in workshops free of charge.
Workshops will take place in Cankarjev dom from the 22nd to the 28th of September, 10 am – 12 am and 4 pm – 6 pm.
