ONLINE & Zagreb

The “Autonomous {digital | network} Art” artistic research has spanned the theoretical, multimedia and technical capabilities of digital and network art practices independence of existing physical energy and informational infrastructures – aiming to reduce the digital divide, and the general ecological footprint of new media art.

Our research was centered around our general Pivilion endeavour to radically decentralise digital work, and informed by our Paradigmenwechsel AiR Fellowship.

We invite everyone interested in digital art – to participate in the following open anonymous survey about digital art autonomy in the crossection of computing, ecology and visual art:

(jury statement)

“U vrijeme neizbrisivog pamćenja digitalnih zapisa, terora cookiesa i kirurški precizne predikcije korisničkih preferencija pomoću marketinških Internet alata, projekt je ponuđena platforma koja pomoću dark weba i otvorenog koda pruža mogućnost stvaranja i izlaganja umjetničkih djela bez korporativne i institucionalne kontrole. Dostupan svima, „Pivilion“ je živo tkivo koje umjetnicima pruža dragocjeni prostor slobode.”
