Materialbewusstsein — Zum Projekt Folded-In

Glaubt man dem Hype der vergangenen Jahre, so gibt es im World Wide Web der zweiten Generation keine Grenzen mehr: Öffentliche Wissensproduktion, globale Zusammenarbeit und translokale Kommunikation florieren und dehnen sich in Form von Netzwerken in alle Richtungen hin aus.

AND-Festival, Liverpool/UK:
Manifestierungen von Hier und Jetzt | Echtzeit im Ausstellungsraum

… als Moment in einem Kontinuum, als Dauer von Vorgängen, als Folge von Ereignissen: entlang der Spuren, die das Phänomen Zeit auf ihrem Weg von der Vergangenheit in die Zukunft hinterlässt, kann es in der Gegenwart nicht ohne das Phänomen Raum betrachtet werden. Wurde die Zeit lange als “Gebiete des Dichters” [1] und der Raum […]

AND-Festival, Liverpool/UK:
Manifestations of Here and Now | Realtime in the Exhibition Space

… as a moment in a continuum, as a continuity of a procedure, as a sequence of events: in the present the phenomenon of time – leaving traces on its way from the past to the future – can’t be considered without reflecting upon the phenomenon of space. If for a long period, time was […]

There’s More Than One Way To Do Microcodes | Pall Thayer

“My medium is the code. (…) The viewer’s medium can be something else.” (1) As simple as Pall Thayer’s statement is, as strict is its execution within the series of so called Microcodes the Reykjavik-based artist started to develop in early 2009. Each Microcode is a fully contained work of art, the conceptual meaning of […]

Im Prinzip, zeitbasiert — In der Kubatur des Kabinetts

Die Ausstellung Im Prinzip, zeitbasiert im Clubraum des Wiener Lokals Fluc präsentiert drei Künstler, deren Handlungsfelder in den Bereichen Film/Video, bildende Kunst und Literatur unmittelbar mit dem Prinzip Zeit verflochten sind.

Who/We Are the Spies?! | Daphne Dragona

“Tagging”, “posting”, “sharing”, “commenting”, “rating” and … once again, the other way around: affective and opinion-driven practices of exchange seem to be essential key issues for the everyday behaviour on the so called Social Web. But, what happens with us, the users of commercially hosted platforms, when we share our experiences and comment on opinions […]

“Translation is a mode.” (Walter Benjamin) — ¿Por qué sigue siendo más fácil encontrar la colección completa de un museo en Internet que dar con una sola obra de net.art en las salas de un museo? De acuerdo con la naturaleza de esta pregunta, han de tenerse en cuenta dos aspectos: el terreno del arte […]

Trans.Form.Work | Internet-based Art in the Real Space

“Translation is a mode.” (Walter Benjamin) — Why is it still easier to get an entire museum collection on the Internet than to get a single work of Internet-based Art in a museum space? As with the nature of this question, both aspects have to be taken into account: the field of Internet-based Art with […]

A Matter of Translation | Webcra.sh/2800

“Just as a tangent touches a circle lightly and at but one point, with this touch rather than with the point setting the law according to which it is to continue on its straight path to infinity, a translation touches the original lightly and only at the infinitely small point of the sense, thereupon pursuing […]
