*ACI Surfing with... Prof. Dr. Tilman Baumgärtel 11.06.2021, 6pm 


*Once upon a time... the internet*

"The internet does not forget" has become a commonplace - that could not 
be more wrong.
In this talk, media critic Tilman Baumgärtel will alert the audience to 
the imminent decay of much of the net culture that we take for granted 
As a result of his decade-long involvement with internet art and net 
culture, Baumgärtel is acutely aware of this danger.
In the talk he will point out some pogiant examples of the fragile 
nature of net artefacts as well as attempts to archive and maintain this 
legacy, including information on his own attempts to preserve early 
networked art. In addition, except some observations and insights into 
recent pandemie-compatible internet exhibitions, the diverse practise of 
net archiving, emulation, NFTs and internet memoirs...


Prof. Dr. Tilman Baumgärtel is a writer. He lives in Berlin and teaches 
media studies at Hochschule Mainz. Previously he was a professor at the 
University of the Philippines in Manila (2005 - 2009) und at the 
Department of Media and Communication at the Royal University of Phnom 
Penh (2009 - 2012). He has written or edited more than a dozen books on 
various aspect of media culture, including internet art, computer games, 
the aesthetics of loops, GIF animation and the film maker Harun Farocki.
