This exhibition coincides with the release of Katja Novitskova’s book Post Internet Survival Guide 2010.
Post Internet Survival Guide is an exhibition that features the works of
young artists who use various methods to explore severe ongoing merging of matter, social and (visual) information in the present world.
The shift to a multi-polar, mobile, post-democratic, gated, real-time set
of conditions effectively redistributes the global balance of powers.
The existing structures of our (Western) mode of thinking and being,
including the flows of energy and value, the domain of aesthetics, the
currency of art, and our role in the process that is civilization are
being reshaped and re-articulated. The scale of these changes are
reflected in the dynamics of formats—files, gadgets, species,
identities, ideologies, brands, styles, cultures, natural disasters,
memes, technologies—entering the ultimate platform and player of
dissemination: Internet.
The words, artifacts, tactics, surfaces and experiences created by the artists in the show, mostly in relation to the tribal context of the web and the geo-economic frontiers of the world it is rooted in, induce various modes of translation between the reality of always, today and tomorrow—a survival kit for ideologies, an art show, a future leak.
+ Performance by Sam Hancocks featuring Justin Francis Kennedy (during the opening)
