Why this page?
On this page you can find almost every statement and text published by the Conne Island. Although the CEE IEH-Newsflyer is a publication by the Conne Island, most of the times the published concert announcements und texts are written by single persons or groups and subscribed accordingly. Only the authors are responsible for the content of the texts. With the Newsflyer the Conne Island gives different authors a possibilty to publish, because a) we are interested in having our events announced, and b) we want to make discussions about cultural, political and social topics possible.
Furthermore the CEE IEH is run by an independent editorial office, which has our confidence. Contents and the choice of texts are determined by the editorial staff only and are not co-ordinated in detail with the Conne Island.
That is misunderstood by people sometimes. Critics hold texts - may it be concerts announcements, critical polemics or documentations of referates - against the Conne Island, which consequently is blamed for a position that it does not take up. That is why criticism of texts that have been published in the CEE IEH should be directed at the single authors and/or groups, for example by means of reader`s letters. The Conne Island Plenum and CEE IEH´s editorial office hope that discussion arise from that.
For the sake of transparency regarding our position, we document the following official statements and texts approved by the Conne Island Plenum.
