Future-forward art from artist/curator
Aram Bartholl :
A new way of curating digital art
(Bartholl) combines public space (the city) and cyberspace (the network), by conceiving of a series of proposals to adapt the physical world to the process of locating data as it really exists on the internet (a principle primary known as " Location Based Services "). A project and a theme close to " Dead Drops ", a performance with which ordinary citizens can connect and drop data in different urban spaces through USB sticks scattered over the territory. A playful project, but also logical, for an architecture engineer for which the artistic issues are also social and political issues. MORE
Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and life pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc).
Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted. Any creative physical modification to Internet cafe itself is not allowed. The show is public and takes place during normal opening hours of the Internet cafe/shop. All visitors are welcome to join the opening, enjoy the art (and to check their email.

Everyone could be an improvised curator, cheaply and democratically. As it is in many fields today about internet and our access to culture and information, the Speed Show runs curator, galleries and museum space partly obsolete. Even better, it is the perfect way for discovery (and rediscovery) of the Net Art creation. A remarkable, popular and subversive art, made of screens and networks, which here becomes affordable again thanks to the initiative of Aram Bartholl. The German artist also has a site on which the participants post their photos of their own Speed Show. A simple idea, easy to apply, and an effective way to publicize the Net Art.
