today and tomorrow’s 5th birthday SPEED SHOW

July 15th, 2010

Next Wednesday it’s today and tomorrow’s 5th birthday. To celebrate this, I’m organizing a SPEED SHOW. It’s an exhibition format developed by Aram Bartholl, this is the manifest:

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.)

So here are the details for the today and tomorrow’s 5th birthday SPEED SHOW:

Wednesday 21th of July 2010, 21:00 – 00:00
