Juli um 19 Uhr statt.

Die aktuelle Gruppenschau der Stadtgalerie Mannheim widmet sich der Netz-Kunst und ihren Pionieren. Das Internet ist als Medium immer noch sehr neu. Seine Entwicklung verläuft aber so rasant, dass selbst vergleichsweise junge Internetphänomene technisch bereits längst überholt sind und kurios anmuten. Dasselbe gilt für die Mobiltelefonie und ihre Entwicklung. Umso erstaunlicher ist die Ausstellung in der Stadtgalerie Mannheim, die zeigt, wie souverän Künstlerinnen und Künstler das Medium nutzen und nutzten – und wie früh sie sein ästhetisches Potenzial erkannten.

sys23

Die Übersetzung von Digitalem in Analoges ist ein Prinzip, mit dem Künstlerinnen und Künstler versuchen, die Wahrnehmbarkeit von abstrakten Phänomenen zu erweitern und für Menschen direkter erfahrbar zu machen. In der Performance „loveLetter.vbs reading“ lässt die italienische Netzkunstgruppe [epidemiC] den Philosophen Franco Berardi den Quellcode des Viruses vorlesen, der sich ab dem 4. Mai 2000 explosionsartig verbreitetet und einen geschätzten Schaden in Höhe von 10 Milliarden US Dollar anrichtete.

Das Künstlerpaar plan b druckt ihren gesamten privaten SMS-Verkehr eines Jahres während der Laufzeit der Ausstellung auf Endlospapier aus. In einer Performance während der Ausstellung lesen sie sich diese Nachrichten vor.

Das gegenteilige Prinzip wenden Annie Abrahams und Igor Štromajer in ihren Arbeiten an. Sowohl Štromajers und Zormans „Ballettikka Internettikka“ als auch Annie Abrahams „The Big Kiss“ verwenden die Digitalisierung, um klassische Performances zu verändern und zu komplettieren. Štromajers und Zormans „Ballettikka Internettikka“, eine Serie von Performances, die er zwischen 2001 und 2011 durchführte, arbeitete bereits zu Beginn mit dem mobilen Internet – und kam dadurch besonders in den ersten Jahren sehr schnell an seine technischen Grenzen, die in die Arbeit integriert wurden.

Volker Harmann-Langenfelders Arbeit „Beep! For an unspecified number of mobile devices in an unspecified room.“ bewegt sich im Zwischenbereich. Der Künstler übersetzt experimentelle, aleatorische Musik in eine digitale Form. Die Arbeit besteht jedoch aus einem QR-Code, der mit Smartphones bzw. Tablets und den entsprechenden Anwendungen ausgelesen werden kann und den Systemton des Geräts wiedergibt.

PERFORMMIKKA INTERNETTIKKA

PERFORMANCE
PERFORMMIKKA INTERNETTIKKA

nimk.nl/eng/calendar/performmikka-internettikka

29 May 2010

The Netherlands Media Art Institute / Nederlands Instituut voor Mediakunst (NIMk)

doors open 20:00, program begins 20:30
Entrance 5,- (students 3,50)
Please make reservations

An evening with internet/teleperformances by Annie Abrahams, Christophe Bruno, Constant Dullaart, Igor Stromajer and Brane Zorman, focused on the relations between contemporary performance practice and the internet.

With performances by:
Annie Abrahams, Huis Clos : No Exit – On Translation (20:00)
Christophe Bruno, Human Browser
Constant Dullaart, Arranged online moments
Igor Stromajer & Brane Zorman, Ballettikka Internettikka Insecttikka (22:00)

Performmikka Internettikka focuses on recent new possibilities surrounding tele- or internet performance. With the increased speed of internet connections in recent years and the omnipresence of the net, it has not only provided these media artists with inspiration, but also with a platform and a medium. In their work the participating artists respond in various ways to the technical possibilities and limitations of the internet, and to the implications the medium has for content. How does a simultaneous and collective performance being carried out at different places around the world look? What does the delay and distance contribute to the chances and limitations? How does an audience deal with viewing a live ‘event’ with illegal recorded images that are being made at that moment somewhere else in the world? In addition, the artists respond with irony to the Internet as a source of entertainment, and as a capitalist instrument. In short, what does the internet contribute to contemporary performance art practice in terms of inspiration, mediation and as a platform?
