MAK-Gegenwartskunstdepot Gefechtsturm Arenbergpark, 13. to 23. September 2007
At the MAK-Gegenwartskunstdepot Gefechtsturm Arenbergpark, about 30 positions in net art and net culture, as well as in adjacent artistic strategies will attempt an approach to the UN_SPACE. Real spaces, like architectures and geographical areas, as well as their importance will be examined. In addition, the exhibition will deal with virtual spaces like the ones to be found in media and net art. One can even say that social and personal spatial dimensions and territories are virtual. Here, it is essential to ask for their qualities, their importance, their individual approachability and – deriving from these - the concepts of opening up these spaces. But we also understand UN_SPACE as the elimination of distances, frontiers, and barriers encroaching upon the cultural, social, political and media-related reality.
