"Passionate individuals and non-profit organizations from the region of Rennes, Brittany, France invite you to participate in the first Breizh Entropy Congress. This inter-disciplinary event focuses on free (as in freedom) creations and culture.

Through a meeting fostering open-mindedness, exchange of ideas and learning, we hope to show solutions to technical, social and political problems, and celebrate free, reclaimed and creative art and technology.

We happily welcome entropy, as a means to break artificial boundaries between disciplines and find unexpected ways of doing things that promote liberalization, sharing and reclaiming of technologies that traditionnally belonged to the realm of corporations and well-funded academic labs."

Belgium, Hasselt
February 6th till May 2nd.

"Nepotists, opportunists, friends, freaks and strangers intersecting in the grey zone is a project in which role defining, blurring and shifting intersect within and outside art. The mise-en-scène in Z33 becomes a mise-en-action, which addresses the presence, responsibility and potential actions of the artist, visitor or audience. In its form and structure, the grey zone challenges traditional presentation venues. The white or the black box becomes grey or coloured and is always changeable."

"Tired of your Social Network? Everyone should have the right to disconnect. Seamless connectivity and rich social experience offered by web2.0 companies are the very antithesis of human freedom. Users are entraped in a high resolution panoptic prison without walls, accessible from anywhere in the world.

Liberate your newbie friends with a Web2.0 suicide! This machine lets you delete all your energy sucking social-networking profiles, kill your fake virtual friends, and completely do away with your Web2.0 alterego.

Suicide Machine currently runs with Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and LinkedIn!"

Imagining cities beyond oil
Various
"Post-Oil Cities is a project created and directed by Lluís Sabadell Artiga within Híbrids 2.0 which investigates the relationship between human beings and their surroundings from an ecological point of view. In addition to POST-OIL CITIES, Híbrids 2.0 has open lines of research on Art and Ecology, Perception and Landscape and Architecture and Environment.

The project uses the capacity of visionary creativity to think, imagine and design our cities, regions and areas beyond oil (Post-Oil), generate a new imagination for the twenty-first century that will be a reference in the present."

"THE PUBLIC SCHOOL is a school with no curriculum. At the moment, it operates as follows: first, classes are proposed by the public (I want to learn this or I want to teach this); then, people have the opportunity to sign up for the classes (I also want to learn that); finally, when enough people have expressed interest, the school finds a teacher and offers the class to those who signed up.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL is not accredited, it does not give out degrees, and it has no affiliation with the public school system. It is a framework that supports autodidactic activities, operating under the assumption that everything is in everything.

The Public School (Brussels) is set up by Komplot at Nadine, from November 2009 until April 2010 and later in other venues in the city. Telic Arts Exchange (Los Angeles) initiated The Public School, an art school “with no curriculum.” It now also exists in Philadelphia and Chicago with new schools opening this Autumn, in New York at Common Room, in Paris at Bétonsalon and in Brussels at Komplot."

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
