Curatorial Statement

The Digital Communities category that  debuted in 2006 is being 
showcased on a larger scale this year. But just  how does one go about 
exhibiting a digital community, a network of  chaotic internet experts 
or a spontaneous Facebook group? Where and who  are all these people? 
What does this internet look like and where can I find it?

Your typical local internet shop represents the internet in a very 
basic, simple form. In what might be termed a semi-public space packed 
full of computers set up in little cubbyholes, anyone can get temporary 
internet  access at a very reasonable price. In contrast to the wireless 
internet  of mobile telephony/3G and WLAN that’s omnipresent and 
surrounds us  like the air we breathe, here the internet is confined to 
a particular  space. Several people gather at a semi-public place to 
simultaneously  use the internet individually. This type of internet 
café symbolizes the  prejudices held by a certain segment of Western 
society towards the  internet. For many, the internet is uncontrollable, 
deceitful,  emblematic of the decline of our culture. But in most parts 
of the  world, the internet café is the only place where people can get 
online.  It’s the only possibility to hook up to the big data stream and 
take  part in the (hopefully) free exchange of information with all its 
  attendant advantages. The internet is here!

A genuine original Linz internet shop  set up in  the Tabakfabrik 
constitutes Digital Communities’ core. It  features a fully functional 
kiosk purveying a nice selection of  merchandise, Turkish pop music, and 
12 internet-capable computers  arrayed on quintessential internet café 
furniture. But that’s not all:  *TELE-INTERNET* is also a meeting place, 
project space, workshop area,  chill-out lounge, marketplace, lobby, 
stage, and co-working zone for the  digital communities that have 
convened in person. The principals of  prizewinning projects (winners 
and honorable mentions) as well as an  interesting assortment of 
internet activists, coders, artists and  purveyors of chaos will be 
working, discussing, performing and  presenting their work at tables, 
seating arrangements, on stage or on  the banks of the Danube. In 
addition to the digital communities’ diverse  projects, the classic core 
topics of the CCC (Golden Nica at the 2010  Prix Ars Electronica) will 
play an important role: private sphere,  internet & computer security, 
open source, etc. Plus, digital  communities (which succeeded the Prix 
Ars Electronica’s net.art category  in 2006) will be represented by 
artistic positions in the form of  workshops, presentations and 
performances. How are artists working in  the fields of net.art and new 
pop.net.art coming to terms with all the  developments in the internet?

*TELE-INTERNET* is an organically  growing structure, a hacker space, a 
conference, a stage, an exhibition,  a BarCamp, Commune 0/1, and a site 
for anyone who’s interested in  discussing the development of the 
internet, exchanging ideas, and  presenting their own projects. Ars 
Electronica festivalgoers are invited  to take the plunge and join the 
fun, to contribute to the discussion of  the social web, or to chill out 
on the couch with a clubmate and a  notebook.

Aram  Bartholl 2010


The Digital Communities presentations at the 2010 Ars Electronica 
Festival were developed on the basis of the SPEED SHOW exhibition 
format. http://fffff.at/speed-show

SPEED SHOW manifest
Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on 
them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to 
be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser 
with standard plug-ins. Performance and life pieces may also use 
pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video 
chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files 
are not permitted. Any creative physical modification to Internet
cafe itself is not allowed. The show is public and takes place during 
normal opening hours of the Internet cafe/shop. All visitors are welcome 
to join the opening, enjoy the art (and to check their E-mail).

The SPEED SHOW exhibition series was started by Aram Bartholl in June
