From the studio in the city of the Euro, Frankfurt, Station Rose/STR has been realizing the concept of a "digital webcasting station in the net" at stationrose.com, STReaming multimedia art into cyberspace as well as live conversations in realtime (minus 20 seconds). These compositions in realtime are the artistic output of STR as multimedia band, started in 1992 with Gunafa Clubbing, refined and radicalized with webcasting now. The seclusion of the multimedia studio, necessary for artistic creation, gets morphed into a webcam-situation, opening virtual windows: into the studio, to the street, into rooms of sounds & visuals, to conversational settings. As the webcasts are live-multimedia-art, they rarely become archived in the net. Like with a performance, they become past when the session or conversation is over.

  * Das Buch "private://public"

Out of a wealth of exciting talks from the past webcasts we could choose only a few, which are published as transscripts. Instead of vanishing in Cyberspace after a webcast, a selection of these has now been brought to paper. "private://public" is published by Vienna´s edition selene, publisher of STR´s first book, "1st Decade". Artwork and concept of the book is by Station Rose. The mode of production can be called inverse publishing: the conversations took place in the net originally, out of that the book and the symposium have been created. Besides the transcribed conversations STR wrote short texts around the conversations´ featured topics as well as an introduction to webcasting. "private://public" is the first publication of a book in German on this topic realized by artists.
