A small but important info about our running website under www.faces-l.net. As the version of the system (Drupal 5) is meanwhile old and has some security issues we can't fix, we have to take it down until the new stable version I want to use for the FACES website (Drupal Commons) is available, which will be in march.
I will be able to secure your login data but not the content of your profile page. (Its too much work to be honest)
Please have a look on your own profile page and in the case you want to keep it just save the content of your page in in a text file and save it on your computer until we are ready for a new start.
Faces-l.net will be available until Friday 8th 10:00 am.
Interview and discussion with artist and filmmaker, Lynn Hershman Leeson & Film producer Alexandra Chowaniec about feminist art practice and the film “Women Art Revolution.” On the Mic: Diana McCarty & Barbara Muerdter.
“Through intimate interviews, art, and rarely seen archival film and video footage, !Women Art Revolution reveals how the Feminist Art Movement fused free speech and politics into an art that radically transformed the art and culture of our times.”
Soon Faces is getting a new Face! The only thing I am waiting for is a stable release of Drupal Commons.

EMAF is one of the most influential forums of international Media Art. As a meeting point for artists, curators, distributors, galleries and an audience of experts the festival has a great impact on the topics and aesthetics of Media Art. Each year the festival offers its visitors a current overview of experimental films, installations, performances, digital formats and hybrid forms, ranging from personal and political subjects or formal experiments to provocative statements from the pulsating area of “Media Art – Society”. The Festival sees itself as a place of experimentation and a laboratory where extraordinary works, experiments and ventures are created and presented.

Der neue Feminismus im Netz ist unübersehbar. Weltweit entstehen namhafte feministische Blogs, mit der Mädchenmannschaft gibt es ein wichtiges deutschsprachiges Portal, dazu eine Vernetzung durch die Facebook Gruppe “Girls on Web Society” mit über 500 Mitgliedern. Mit dem Buch “Wir Alphamädchen” wurde 2008 der Grundstein für die zweite Welle gelegt.
