Experimental Intermedia, based in New York City, was founded in 1968 by Elaine Summers to provide organizational support for artists working in intermedia forms. Throughout its history EI has produced more than 1000 events in its New York lofts. EI has also produced many intermedia events in other cities in the U.S. and other countries. EI now produces 20 events each season; manages its compact disc label, XI; develops and implements international projects in collaboration with like-minded organizations in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Portugal and elsewhere. Phill Niblock, Director

Activities of Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent
In 1993, the American artist Phill Niblock opened a house with window gallery at Sassekaai 45, in Gent, Belgium. Quickly the EI Huis became a meeting place for many local and international artists and art lovers. In 1997, the co-ordinating committee - Phill Niblock, Maria Blondeel, Zjuul Devens, Lieve D'hondt and Ludo Engels - founded a Belgium organization, the Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent. EI presents 4 or more installations a year in the windows. The installations can be seen from the street through two large windows: pedestrians, car drivers, bikers and people on the tram cannot help but give attention to the curved front with its two windows, bringing the art (often literally) onto the street. By exploring the space and the environment, the artist can surprise passers-by with his/her creation. EI has produced several projects in collaboration with other international artists' organizations like Kunstcentrum Sittard, Sittard (NL), MeX, Dortmund (D), ICAEE, Tokyo (JP), Voorkamer, Lier (B) and Logos Foundation, Gent (B).

The artists who have made installations, listed in chronological order, are: Maria Evelein, the Netherlands; Sigrid Lange, Germany; Michael Timpson, USA; Michael Vorfeld, Germany; Uli Vonbank-Schedler, Austria; Harald Kubiczak, Germany; Alexandru Patatics, Romania and Gerd Schmedes, Germany; Mike Metz, USA and Penelope Wehrli, USA/ Germany (in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts, Gent); Beverly Piersol, USA/ Austria and Gertrude Moser-Wagner, Austria; Juana Valdes, Cuba/USA; Adri Huismann, The Netherlands; Kjell Bj÷rgeengen, Norway; Claudia Wissman, Germany; Claudia Schmacke, Germany; Marica Presic, Belgrade, Yugoslavia; Doris Koch, Germany; Esther Ferrer, France/Spain; Ludwika Ogorzelec, France/Poland; Peter Schoutsen, Netherlands; Jozef Cseres and Michael Murin, Slovakia; Steffen Muck, Germany; Maria Friberg and John Oivind Eggesboe, of Sweden and Denmark; Mirjam Berloth, The Netherlands; Beate Maria W÷rz, Germany; Heike Kern, Germany ; Renate Hoffman Korth, Germany, and Sonia Rodrigues, Portugal/ England; Leonidas Martin Saura (Spain); Ursula Scherrer, Switzerland/USA; Jio Shimizu, Japan; Minoru Sato, Japan; Nina Kovacheva and Valentin Stefanoff, Bulgaria / France; An Seebach, Germany; Anna Best, England; Paul Devens, The Netherlands; ts Beall, USA and Glasgow; Ivan Smith, England; Sara Hornbacher, USA; Yoshito Ikeda, Japan; Almut Rink and Christof Schlegel, Austria; Sophie Nys, Belgium; Jurgita Remeikyte, Vilnius, Lithuania; Juul Sadee, Netherlands; Doris Kuwert, Germany; Bruce Allan, England ; Carlos Andrade, Colombia and Todd Ayoung, USA; Takahiko Iimura, Japan; Patrick Beaulieu, Canada
