Iza kulisa – vizualni kodovi mreže

Izložba smještena u prostoru Galerije VN, čije materijalne premise čine zidovi u Ilici 163-a, polazi od internetskih zidova net.cube galerije koji se šire prostorom i vremenom onoliko koliko to dopuštaju izloženi umjetnički radovi. Ipak, izložba “Iza kulisa – vizualni kodovi mreže” ne prenosi, čak i ne prevodi radove izložene u net.cube galeriji, već nastoji ukazati na njihovu nevidljivu materijalnost. Izloženi su predlošci, skice i nacrti važni za proces nastanka online radova Darka Fritza, Dine Karadžić i Vedrana Glige, Darka Masneca, Tee Stražičić i Igora Štromajera.

The Day My Internet Art Paid Off! is an exhibition featuring works by Željko Badurina, Maja Čule, Hrvoje Hiršl, Dina Karadžić, Tea Stražičić and Igor Štromajer, all of which touch upon different economic aspects dictated by the new relations on the web.

The works are inspired by phenomena on the web, which is reflected in their concept, production, understanding and reception. They are symptoms, but also the consequences of Internet reality, some of them only available online. By translating them into a gallery, the boundaries between the material and the virtual world become even more blurry.

Tabs, procrastination, self-promotion, collaboration, spam, comment sections, shares, likes – these are all fragments, be it material or digital, of circulating data. On the web, the circulation performed by numerous users gives value and power to the transfer of information. Therefore, Internet economies do not only allude to typical digital financial transfer protocols, but are also based, to a large extent, on generating symbolic capital, i.e., values. Bearing in mind the context of the web as a corporate and supervised medium, the exhibition brings to the forefront the artist’s reactionary role in relation to the economic models developed on the 2.0 web.

g22

Assuming that Internet reality today impacts the way we act, socialise and think, the exhibition examines how the Internet and digital economies influence the life and position in society of the people who use them. That is to say, the users are the ones who provide information online in exchange for freedom, agreeing to be resourced to particular corporations, or, as Andrew Lewis put it in 2010, if you’re not paying for the product, you are the product. This is why the exhibition pinpoints the intersections of apparently divided worlds within the existing economic setup; on the one hand, the production itself is marked by the current economic state, while on the other, the online world is the extraordinary place of exploitation and experimentation.

From 17 September to 9 October, the »Ascents« light art festival will enable visitors to discover flights of steps, vantage points, Stuttgart’s famous »Stäffele« steps, towers and other ascents from a new perspective. The festival‘s curator, Joachim Fleischer, has invited more than 40 artists from 10 different countries to draw inspiration from the many different places of ascent in the region. All these unique installations can be viewed every day from 8 pm to 12 midnight in 25 different towns and cities.

Slovenian-born multimedia artist Igor Štromajer sends out a coded message from the watchtower in Esslingen to the town below. The lights that blink from the windows of the watchtower are relaying a message in Morse code. A clue to the meaning of this message is provided in the name of his work »Im Menschen lebt der Gedanke!« (»Thoughts live in people!«). Štromajer leaves it to the observer to either decode the message or simply enjoy the sensory perceptions.

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?
