The Internet based collective Clusterduck presents the open call “Internet Fame”. The call is part of the preparations for the upcoming The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale, which will be presented to the Press on October 1, and to the wider public on November 1, 2017. Selected participants will be invited to join the official pavilion “Internet Fame”, showing their works in a curated virtual space. Deadline for participant submissions is September 15, 2017.
“Internet Fame” intends to explore the implications of digitalization and platform capitalism for the concept of “Fame”, while also reflecting upon the legacy of the concept within the art world. While examining the disruptive consequences of social media on traditional power structures – within the art establishment and beyond – the pavilion will also ponder the uncertain grounds of a reality evermore enclosed by its own simulation.
Clusterduck is an interdisciplinary collective working at the crossroads of research, design and filmmaking, focusing on the processes and actors behind the creation of internet related content. As part of an ongoing effort to realize a long feature documentary about digital creativity, it collaborated with several artists and institutions shaping the contemporary digital art world. “Internet Fame” will be its first art exhibition project.
"The Wrong - New Digital Art Biennale" defines itself as "the largest and most comprehensive international digital art biennale today.
Its mission is to create, promote and push positive forward-thinking contemporary digital art to a wider audience worldwide."
