SPECTRE is an open, unmoderated mailing list for media art and culture in
Initiated in August 2001, SPECTRE offers a channel for practical
information exchange concerning events, projects and initiatives organized
within the field of media culture, and hosts discussions and critical
commentary about the development of art, culture and politics in and beyond
Europe. Deep Europe is not a particular territory, but is based on an
attitude and experience of layered identities and histories - ubiquitous in
Europe, yet in no way restricted by its topographical borders.
SPECTRE is a channel for people involved in old and new media in art and
culture. Importantly, many people on this list know each other personally.
SPECTRE aims to facilitate real-life meetings and favours real face-to-face
(screen-to-screen) cooperation, test-bed experiences and environments to
provoke querying of issues of cultural identity/identification and
difference (translatable as well as untranslatable or irreducible).
