2. Violence Channel (Memory Channel No.2) 
a) gender (f) net based project by Deb King (USA) 
gender[f] addresses issues of gender, racial and economic biases resulting
in systemic violence against women and minorities. 
This project arises from the unseemly juxtaposition of a "war on terror"
with the every day realities faced by women living in cultures that
enforce female circumcision, do not give equal value for equal work based
on cultural bias, tacitly accept violent domestic situations, use sexual
intimidation as a military tactic and fear of reprisal as a cultural
The name, gender[f], designates a programmatic function. The function -
gender - holds an unlimited, presently undefined array - [f] - the
identities, issues and/or representations of women in society. 
This work is dedicated to the the over 400 murdered and disappeared women
of Juarez who worked in the maquiladoras of Juarez. 
b) Iraq - the war & postwar period 
30 artists reflect the conditions of the post war Iraq. 
The war in Iraq is/was marked by two politicians, the political leaders of USA and UK, 
it is an example of the systemetic manipulation of public opinion.
