    The HTMlles Festival [17-21 Oct]

The HTMlles Festival <http://www.htmlles.net>, Montreal's biennial, 
international, interdisciplinary arts event is back for its 8th edition 
showcase of activist, new media and cyber-feminist artwork! This fall, 
CROWD CONTROL, the HTMlles' newest theme, investigates social, 
political, territorial, personal, and conceptual mobility.

CROWD CONTROL will be expressed through an explosion of critical and 
thought-provoking artwork by over 25 women (and men too!) artists and 
theorists engaged in contemporary creative technologies. The four-day 
long renowned fest will feature cutting-edge digital media and 
performance-based artwork which seek their meaning in the simultaneity 
and immediacy of networks and digital communications. Join us in a 
variety of captivating public discussions, workshops and interventions, 
and come to our electric closing party!

As a project of Montreal's first feminist digital resource center, 
StudioXX, the festival supports cyber-feminist analysis, and creates a 
site for international artistic convergence.

    The Electronic Review .dpi

The upcoming edition of the electronic review .dpi is in the works! In 
this new edition, we will continue our exploration of the practices of 
mobility, and more specifically, "suspended mobility".

You will find our chronicle writers: Marianne Cloutier, who has prepared 
a text on web-based arts, and Sophie Le-Phat Ho, who is leaving London 
to comment on the DEAF festival in Rotteram.

You will also meet our newly recruited Émilie Houssa, who is 
contributing a critical piece on "the image", as seen from the lens of 
Paris and French politics. Texts by Adriene Jenik and Helen Varley 
Jamieson will explore new narrative forms of cyberperformance and other 
tools of communication.

In this issue we will also introduce a new chronicle, entitled 
/Actualité/, which will take us into the Montreal metro, where the 
multi-sensory installation /Breaking Point/ will soon be open to the public.
