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.

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?

Residence | @arselectronica Center / Future Lab, Linz: http://residence.aec.at. It's a bit hard to access this old, hidden — and certainly completely forgotten — URL in a desktop browser (privacy error, but you can overpass it), I had more luck on the phone (screenshots). It's certainly an amazing find: it contains some of the rare online works before the year 2000 which I was unable to find at the current AE Future Lab website https://ars.electronica.art/futurelab/en. It's a pity that they don't take proper care of the past and older works they have on their servers. It also says a lot about how much new and recent works are actually worth and what fate awaits them in a few years.
Still in the basement, reorganizing my archive. Today's find: @artpress.revue, November 1999, Annick Bureaud, Utopies distribuées; and my 'e/motion HELP – is there anybody out there?'
The days are hot, so I'm cooling down in the basement while reorganizing my archive: @beauxarts_magazin, November 2003 – Sprinkling Menstrual Navigator becoming part of the @centrepompidou permanent collection
Tidying and reorganizing my archive, because it's too messy and I can't find things. The 1999 COMTECart (@cynetart today) Festival catalog had a cover with a graphic from my work b.ALT.ica. The poster as well, but I can't find it.
