HZ Journal

Fylkingen’s journal Hz started as a non-virtual journal after its predecessor Fylkingen Bulletin from ’60s. Since 2000, Hz moved to the Internet and has become an Internet journal, one of the few in Sweden. From the second issue in 2003 it also includes Net Gallery, where international Internet art works are presented.

Fylkingen is a non-profit art organization in Stockholm. Established in 1933, it is the oldest forum for experimental music and intermedia art in Sweden. Throughout its history Fylkingen has been the driving force in the Swedish art scene to introduce and promote un-established art forms, the examples of which include the music of Bartók and the video works of Nam June Paik as well as electro-acoustic music during the ’50s.

Neural.it

Neural is a printed magazine established in 1993 dealing with new media art, electronic music and hacktivism. It was founded by Alessandro Ludovico and Minus Habens Records label owner Ivan Iusco in Bari (Italy). In its first issue (distributed in November 1993) there was the only translation in Italian of the William Gibson’s Agrippa (a book of the dead) book. Neural magazine started as a bi-monthly but since 1997 it was printed three times in a year (some years it was printed irregularly). It was printed originally in Italian, but since 2003 there are two different printed editions: in English and Italian.

NoemaLab

Noema was born in November 1999 and it has been officially online since March 2000. But it would be possible going backward in time, since its roots date back to the first ’90s, when in March 1994 a small group at the University of Bologna published NetMagazine (then renamed in MagNet), the first online magazine in Italy, an experience which is still mentioned in the books on the interface design.

Noema anticipated and influenced, for its contents, logics and sections, many websites on the relationships between culture and technologies, not only in Italy. The website followed the Web evolution, passing from pure HTML to databases and adjusting its interface until the 3rd release in 2004, which is still today’s unchanged ongoing release, maybe because there was not so much to change. In the meanwhile Noema gave birth to many projects, from didactics to publishing, from journalism to Open Source, to art.
