Yami-Ichi internetstadl#3, NRW-Forum Düsseldorf

Yami-IchiOffline Geek Flea Market

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.

#embroidery: 25 DIY cross-stitch patterns
by Igor Štromajer

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.

Unnamed Group


Unnamed Group

Artists: user, username, profile_name, alias, default, name, visitor, guest, anonymous, login_name, account_name

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.

Unnamed Group is a pavilion of The Wrong (again), New Digital Art Bienale, 2015
