EMAF – European Media Art Festival
Osnabrück, 20–24 April 2016
EMAF 2016 Official Selection:
Make Love Not Art – Do Not Expect Me To Do It For You
by Igor Štromajer
will be screened on 23 April 2016 at 22:45 at the Filmtheater Hasetor.
Cinema: Experimental short and feature films, documentaries, music videos, specials, retrospectives.
This year, the European Media Art Festival queries the importance and impact of strategies for the future. It is taken for granted that the debate on how to shape societies, their economies and cultures necessarily involves looking to the future, creating drafts and scenarios, speculating and having visions. However, it should also be a matter of course to ask: who creates these visions, who could have an interest in the implementation of these plans, and whose purpose do these strategies actually serve?

Saturday, 9 April 2016 at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf
Are you tired of being dependent on the internet and want to return to the physical world? On the occasion of the Night of Museums 2016, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf will host a Yami-Ichi as its third Internetstadl, where products from the internet will be sold in real life – a kind of offline celebration of online products.
The new monthly series of events Internetstadl offers an introduction to the digital future. The Internetstadl brings together creative and digital pioneers and turns online culture into an entertaining event format. Internetstadl ist curated by Alain Bieber, artistic director of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, together with the net artist Florian Kuhlmann and the creator Thomas Artur Spallek.
At the Offline-Geek-Flea Market objects will change real hands that are otherwise only available online – the offline world as a legal black market. Following Tokyo, Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam the Yami Ichi, invented by the Japanese artist group IDPW, is now coming to Düsseldorf.

Deleting Net Art Works, 2011
Memory is there to deceive.
Expunction is a project by mobile Internet communicator Igor Štromajer. Between 11 May and 16 June 2011, Štromajer, a pioneer of net art both in Slovenia and worldwide, ritually deleted a number of his classical net art works produced between 1996 and 2007. He expunged one net art project per day, permanently deleting it from his online server, so that the projects are no longer available at the Intima Virtual Base. He deleted 37 net art works altogether, amounting to 3,288 files or 101.72 MB.
Those of Štromajer’s projects that were not on the Intima Virtual Base online server at the time of expunction but are permanently loaded on the servers of the galleries and museums that have acquired them through purchases or donations (Centre Pompidou in Paris, Ars Electronica Lab in Linz, Computer Fine Arts Gallery in New York, MNCA Reina Sofía in Madrid, etc.) were (and still are) inaccessible to the artist for deletion.
The Expunction project broaches the questions of temporality, duration, archiving, and accessibility of (net) art works that automatically change over time as the hardware and software change (browsers, players, applications etc.), slowly but inexorably losing their functionality and consequently also their content. The artist’s basic premise in this project was that whoever creates, programs, and composes art is also entitled to deprogram, deconstruct, and delete it. This is not an act of violence or destruction, but rather the observation of the natural rhythm of birth, life, and death, cyclically repeated and oscillating in natural amplitudes. In a way, Štromajer has erased history, including his own personal history, since he believes our memory serves to deceive us, to misrepresent rather than paint and describe the past. A deceptive memory can be erased without qualms, since it does not portray a real picture of the past it speaks of, but always only a deceptive, distorted image. For this reason the deleted works or their remaining fragments, undeletable once they have been made publicly accessible since the World Wide Web is so widely spread and fragmentary, tell us much more about the originals (original works) than the originals themselves. With its empty slot and precise documentation, a nonexistent work, or rather its absence, points out the ephemerality of a net art work, telling at the same time much more about the deleted work than the so-called actual original could.
Number of deleted net art works: 37
Number of deleted files: 3.288
Amount of deleted files: 101.72 MB
– Deletion frequency: one (1) net art work per day
– Started: 11 May 2011
– Duration: 37 days (last project deleted on 16 June 2011)
– Subject: net art works by Igor Štromajer, created between 2007 to 1996, were being deleted, erased from the original intima.org server

Unnamed Group is a web-based anonymous group performance. Reflecting on the cloaked nature of the web, in a time when identity profiling is becoming more and more default, it also aims to explore the performative character of the web in opposition to a more commonly used presentational use.
This web page, as all others, is hosted on a webserver. 10 artists were individually invited and received access to this webserver to be able to edit this page. Their identities are not disclosed to the public or to each other. The only interaction they have, is within the directory of this server, or in the case of the perception of the public, within this page.
The login details were sent to the participants on the 1st of November 2015 at 20.00 CET. The performance started as soon as the first participant logged in and edited this page.
