Intima | Igor Štromajer

To Be Continued / Expunction in Paris

“À suivre”: capturer le temps dans la performance contemporaine
Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers

The dance theorist Bojana Kunst is spending weeks with a choreographer, artist, or other cultural producer (Danae Theodoridou, performer and researcher, Boyan Manchev, philosopher and theorist, Ivana Müller, choreographer, Igor Štromajer, internet artist), exploring the different aspects of work processes within contemporary art, their relationship to time and the political, economic and performative implications of such experimentation. These “full-time” meetings are being shared with the public, either during conversations, performance, or by individual appointment. These occasions offer to the public the opportunity to engage themselves with the ways Bojana Kunst and her partners address their relationships to time. The material produced during these meetings and public situations provides the basis for a publication, to appear in 2012.

Meeting with Bojana Kunst and Igor Štromajer

Saturday, 17 December 2011, encounter between Bojana Kunst and Igor Štromajer

Live Internet Broadcast:
Saturday, 17 December, 16:00 – 19:00 (CET +0100 UTC; Paris Time)

+ ask questions via Twitter, use #explab hashtag.


On May 2011 Igor Štromajer started to delete his net art projects, created from 1996 to 2007 (Expunction, 2011). The process of deletion opened many questions about temporal fragility of contemporary artistic practice, especially when we talk about new media art works. You are invited to join us at the encounter, where we would like to talk about the disappearance of projects and their temporal traces, about the attempts to keep the projects going on or to delete them, transfer them or archive them, to keep them or to leave them going.


Appointments on Saturday, 17 December 2011, 4 pm – 7 pm.
Contact Virginie Bobin to set up a meeting, at and +33 153 561 594.

Residence | @arselectronica Center / Future Lab, Linz: 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 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.  ●
