>Capturing the Moving Mind:
>Management and Movement in the Age of Permanently Temporary War
>An ephemera conference on the Trans-Siberian train 
>11-20 September 2005
>Researchers, activists and media-artists meet on the Trans-Siberian 
>train from Moscow to Beijing September 11th -20th 2005.
>The conference "Capturing the Moving Minds" gathers a pack of people 
>... artists, economists, researchers, philosophers, activists ... 
>who are interested in the new logic of the economy, the new form of 
>war against terrorism and in the new cooperative modes of creation 
>and resistance, together in a space moving in time. Spatially moving 
>bodies and bodies moving in time (through the different time zones) 
>creates an event, a meeting that not really 'is' but 'is going on'.
>Is this project about economics, is it political activity or a work 
>of art? This "boundlessness" or "indeterminacy", which always 
>characterizes the creation of new, is where the energy of the 
>project is coming: The enterprise expresses and exposes itself the 
>"knowledge economy" in which it exists. It is something the orthodox 
>conceptions about work, action, economy and art are unable to grasp. 
>In this organizational experiment everybody is "alone together" like 
>a pack of wolves around a fire having neighbours to the left and to 
>the right but nobody behind their backs exposed to the desert.
>There are 50 participants on the train involving well known 
>media-artists, frontline contemporary thinkers and political 
>activists. The project has been invited to participate in the 
>International ARS2006 biennial at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art 
>in Helsinki and to arrange an exhibition at the Villa Croce Museo 
>d'arte contemporanea di Genova during summer 2006.
>Mobicasting brings the event directly to all: The Trans-siberian 
>conference is documented and broadcasted through an audiovisual 
>mobicasting platform to the internet. The documentarists, 
>photographers, artists and researchers produce discussions, ideas, 
>interviews, texts and films along the route. The documentation will 
>be projected in Kiasma during the journey and it will also be 
>available on several international www-channels. The mobicasting 
>webpages http://www.kiasma.fi/transsiberia 
><http://www.kiasma.fi/transsiberia>  will be opened on September 
>7th. There will also be a moving radio station on the train; See
