/ The History...
..in spring 1998, a group of women from Graz/Austria founded
"the mailing list 42" in order to discuss, ask and answer
questionsaround computer technologies. Thus the (media-)artists,
technicians, scientists, musicians, and theoreticians,
elaborated on possibilities to learn from each other and to
develop projects together. The mailing listīs language then was German.
Due to an international meeting in Graz in summer 1998,
women from Ljubljana, Belgrad, Amsterdam and Berlin
joined "42". Some sort of Babelfish became necessary. And it came
quickly, though in an unususal way. The simultaneous way of

video-experiments, real-audio streamings, a collaborate
videoproject - for "42" a frequent flow of communication beyond
the limits of language was established.
