The World Wide Web has gone from being a new, utopian space of exchange to a laboratory for the commodification of social relations. The industrial, academic, political and artistic worlds have all experienced this transition and each has reacted in its own way. Jeu de Paume’s virtual space is hosting three exhibitions questioning strategies, devices and formats, closely linked to the practices that played an essential role in the short history of the Internet.
The question of anonymity and identity is the theme of the first session, which takes the form of a group show featuring 16 artists and 19 projects: Eva and Franco Mattes aka 0100101110101101.ORG; Iocose; Les Liens Invisibles; Moddr; Aram Bartholl; Julien Levesque; La Barbe; Yes Men; Dick head man Records; Anonymous; Michael Mandiberg; Cornelia Sollfrank; Heath Bunting; Mouchette; Etoy; Luther Blissett.
Identités précaires (Precarious Identities) is curated by Christophe Bruno.
