  1. Dear Beats —

    I have a residence in the Netherlands and am interested in attending the Middleburg conference in Sept. Do we need to sign up somewhere, or is it open?

    Last week we saw the excellent expanded media Burroughs art exhibition at in Karlsruhe, Germany with Udo Breger, Aksel Heil, Barry Miles, and Ian MacFadyen, among others in attendence.

    Sincerely,
    Eric Andersen

    Hello,
    I read about the conference in Middelburg in the newspaper today. I would like to visit the conference but I saw the registrationform should be mailed before July 1th.
    Am I just too late now or can I still registrate?

    Thanks,
    Jimi
