at PHOENIX Halle Dortmund/Germany
August 30 - October 29, 2006

Until October 29, 2006, the Hartware MedienKunstVerein in the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund is showing a unique exhibition project called "The Wonderful World of irational.org. Techniques, Tools, and Events 1996 - 2006".

Irational is a loose grouping of six international net and media artists who came together around the server irational.org, founded by the British net artist Heath Bunting in 1996, going on to make decisive contribution to early net art from the mid-1990s onward. They include Daniel Garcia Andújar / Technologies to the People (E), Rachel Baker (GB), Kayle Brandon (GB), Heath Bunting (GB), Minerva Cuevas / Mejor Vida Corporation (MEX) and Marcus Valentine (GB).

irational formulates an art of movement through space intended to expand the subject's possibilities of action - in the sense of a tactic of individual empowerment. The catalogue - The Hartware Guide to irational (to be published at the beginning of November by Revolver) - documents the 54 works that are presented in the exhibition The Wonderful World of irational.org as well as the events that took place during the irational Action Weekend.
