What we definitely do not know about Metamoderne.
1. NOBODY KNOWS WHAT METAMODERNE IS
2. BEEING METAMODERN MEANS FEELING METAMODERN
3. METAMODERNE ALWAYS BEGINS NOW
The router is used as an autonomous gallery space to show digital artworks. Artworks are distributed by the router through its local network with no Internet connection; all exhibitions are accessible at the local site only. Curators present artworks on a small web server included on the router, with access granted through an open WLAN/WiFi. The format brings both the intimate character of Net-Art-Activities back to a site-specific relation and opens up new possibilities for a discursive reception in a public situation. The router.gallery is an independent satellite of panke.gallery and features exhibitions by guest curators on a monthly basis.
