Besides the Screen is an international research network on the subject of
experimental audiovisual media. It aims to reconfigure the field of screen
studies by refocusing it on the seemingly secondary objects, processes, and
practices that exist within cinema. Besides the Screen also means to
promote an open and horizontal academic environment, favouring
practice-based approaches to research and artist collaborations.

Forgot if this was mentioned before, so here we go, thanks to gnd, it
all works fine now.
Note: if you have already added your SSH key to your profile and you
still can't push/clone via ssh, remove your pub key and add it again,
I just add to do that now for some unknown reasons...
Could be interesting for those here speaking French, or would be able to
have the final work they produce translated in French.

Subject: 2 recommendations before summer: 26 April, 16 May
Last year I met Rodrigo Batista and Tommaso Buldini, two very different
artists, alive, kicking, looking for a better way out (or in?).
Now they come to WORM! In two different programmes that I am organizing. I
am so excited that I want you to know they will be here!
Please look at their work, read about it, share it, talk about it.
*Friday 26 april: **Prisoners in public space. *
*5 euro presale. 6 euros at the door. Tickets and info here
My colleague Rae and me invited performance artists Rodrigo Batista (BR/NL)
and Keith Zenga King (UG/DU) for a double bill performance night where they
will both present recent work, looking for ways to deal with the (unspoken)
rules of public space and the invisibility of certain issues.
Awaken your conscious mind with this two performances that are alive and
wild but also research based and looking for new forms of expression.
I add Audre Lorde's text "Uses of Anger" in attachment as a reading tip for
*Thursday 16 may: Face to Face. Tommaso Buldini <> Talking Demons*
*Free. Info h
From Instagram to Rotterdam, Tommaso Buldini will visit WORM for the very
first time! We met on an art fair in Paris, where he was the only artist
present, selling his own work, playing performative games with visitors (he
made a board game from a painting), enjoying this life way more than his
previous life as a graphic designer.
His paintings are nothing like graphic design. They are bold, they burn,
references to church-like apocalyptic paintings are accepted but there is a
safe distance from it, but psycho-analysis is omni-present. Burning humans,
child memories and toys, a serpent brain and a forever lasting hunger. Now
the paintings also come to life through animated gifs
<https://vimeo.com/260102843> where demons talk to their master Buldini.
Come and play with us. Come and watch the performance of the demons, the
master and the musician I Love Degrado. The artworks are for sale!
Hope to see you!! Charlien

BTW, I told them several times I'm not the one presenting, that's an

Subject: Speaker information for Urgent Publishing - Friday May 17
Hi Roel, Aymeric & Florian,
I just wanted to send you some practical information about the talks you will give on Thursday 17 May for the Urgent Publishing conference.
Your presentations are scheduled as follows:
Talk on federated publishing Florian Cramer and Roel Roscam Abbing
A postmortem of The Networks We (De)Served by Aymeric Mansoux
The lunch is served in a room adjacent to the collegezaal where the talks will take place. The setting will be informal; people will grab their lunch at 12, have a chat, and at 12:30 your talks will begin.
The day will take place in the Kraton building of ArtEZ Amsterdam.
The address is Utrechtsestraat 85, 6811 LW, Arnhem.
The lunch is served in K4.02 and the talks are in K4.04 Collegezaal, all really close to each other.
The rooms can be a bit difficult to find. If you cannot find the place contact Kelly Mostert (06-280 411 62) or Barbara Dubbeldam (06-189 86 860).
If you want to show something on the projector in the collegezaal this is possible. Please send your presentation/pdf in time to barbara(a)networkcultures.org.

The XPUB hub is working!
Thanks to Angeliki for being the test subject :)
So, the idea is that, for those needing or interested to serve/publish
(as in publicly) their own static website or web application or whatever
thing you could interface to via a browser *and* doing that from your
own RPi, SBC, laptop, desktop, etc, you can now be reachable from a
public URL such as https://hub.xpub.nl/whatever quite easily.
For instance if you go to https://hub.xpub.nl/screaming/ (just accept
the bogus certificate, we'll fix that later), you end up on Angeliki's
research project that she is hosting on her own RPi, currently located
in the studio.
Of course you could also have another machine located elsewhere and
co-admin it with others and be able to access its web server in a
Also, and most importantly, because of the way this is made possible,
once configured it does not matter where the machine is located and what
it its IP, and whether or not it can be reached from the outside. So if
Angeliki wants to unplug the RPi and then put it elsewhere at her home,
or at an exhibition space, etc, the website will come back to life as
soon as the RPi is online, not need to configure or change anything.
You could also host something on your own laptop, and as soon as it's
connected to the Internet, its webserver could be accessible on the same
For those interested in understanding how/why this works without opening
ports, or being bothered with public/private IPs, etc, we can spend an
hour on this after the break. Just ping me if you want to know more.
If you just want to benefit from the hub, I did not have time to document
it properly yet, but Angeliki is going to help me make a page on the
wiki so you know what to do to join the club. In the meantime, just ask
on the list if you want to be reachable from the hub.
@gnd: can you expand the xpub.nl cert to include hub.xpub.nl? Thanks!
See rtlg for the minor changes in iptables to make it all work.
Dear Alex, everyone,
You are 100% right.
This discussion and the form should not have been forwarded to the list.
I want to give you our most sincere apologies for that.
Due to several circumstances (some that we need to address internally
and could have been prevented but also several that were completely
unforeseen), we have suffered this year with unusual delay in our
ability to give both first and second years their assessment feedback in
Last Thursday, we should have said to everyone that, once again, we
would be delayed in delivering the forms. Instead we tried to work
hard to make this fit in a schedule that was clearly already overloaded.
This was a mistake, and was the straw that broke the camel's back. What
followed was a series of multitasking errors, and that led to have some
internal discussions accidentally shared on the list.
Lesson learned. We will be working hard after the audit to find a better
way to process these assessment forms. We're really not good with this,
and we are eager to improve the situation for both students and staff.
Once again, Alex, please accept our most sincere apologies.
If you want to discuss the situation further with me or call me
directly, I'm very happy to do that.
Hi Alex, everyone,
As I’ve spoken with second years about, we’ve been trying/hoping to get all your assessments to you before the vacation. But with the official split of the programs and the opportunity for change in the paperwork, its’ form, and with the accreditation over our shoulder and at our feet, it’s taking longer than we planned. We’re sorry but obviously transparent. Your assessments will not be arriving for a while.

but I think this is not supposed to go to the xpub list?
Did my assessment trim4 sheet just go to all of xpub?!

Hi Steve, Amy, Aymeric,
Yes, they are different. and you�ve done trim2 correctly.
Hold on- I�ve been looking at trim4, and see what you and Amy have done is exactly the same format. So please don�t change anything until Aymeric tells us what he wants.
And that won�t be until the 22nd.
have a good break,

Hi Steve, Amy,
Aymeric has been looking at the assessments and your�s need to be reformatted before we can send them.
The correct way is only grades on top and comments in the feedback section at the end of the page.
for reference see Alexi�s or Natasha�s
I would have like to send them today but don�t expect all to be in as Clara hasn�t done Angeliki yet, so will send them on Fri 26 or Monday 28,
Please let me know when you�ve finished them,
