Dear friends of Avantart!

I am so sad and shocked about the ongoing destruction of the two great buddha statues of Bamiyan by the Taliban regime that I put together a collection of 25 year old photos of this treasure. Please read and see what the world has lost by iconoclasm and ignorance.

David Burman Interstudio Theatre-Academie Interstudio in Carskoe Selo has some news for us:

the academy has a new title now: Institute of Innovative Programs for the Professional Development of Cultural Workers INTERSTUDIO.
It's not only the name which changed, the topics changed as well, now the academy will teach cultural workers and offers professional postgraduate studies...

The new orientation was worked out by David Burman.

There is a new website, where you can find information in russian and in english language

For sure I will continue to report about the academy here at Avantart.

eine Aufführung beim Festival KUKART 3and so we come to the next topic:

June 2001, for the 5th time, the interdiscipline festival KUKART, will take place and Interstudio calls for participation. And invites.

Those of you, who know the Interstudio-pages at Avantart, surely know about the former festivals. Those of you readers who do not know about the festivals can find an overview over the first ten years of Interstudio.

The new program of the Academy and the call for participation at the Interstudio-pages.

Franz Martin Olbrisch

Franz Martin Olbrisch, renowned composer of New Music, guest at Avantart with his website, is invited to participate at the ISCM World Music Days 2001 in Yokohama.

My congratulations and let me express that I am very proud that FMO is keeping his website at Avantart!

The International Society for Contemporary Music organises ISCM World Music Days every year

It is still possible to submit compositions for 2002!
