The exhibition video vortex is the Netherlands Media Art Institute?s
response to the Web2.0 phenomenon. Web2.0 stands for power to the user and
democracy for everyone. It has led to innovative forms of media use in
which an open and playful collaboration can lead to critical positions and
new ideas.

The Netherlands Media Art Institute seizes upon these developments with a
new exhibition model. Stimulation and participation within network
environments is the point of departure. In addition to presenting existing
installations, short workshops and presentations are given every day. In
some cases the artworks form the starting point for a workshop, while in
other cases the medium used is the subject of a workshop. Collective
experience and building shared knowledge is an important focus in all the
projects. In this manner, in the form of continual exchange of ideas,
culture can change, renew itself and survive.

The Netherlands Media Art Institute has recently emerged as an
experimental place where projects with a participatory aspect can be
presented: in other words: do it yourself, with others! The artists are
responding to developments such as YouTube, MySpace and Blogger, mobile
video telephones and the influence of live webcam streams.

Video Vortex is a collaboration of the Institute of Network Cultures with
Argos Brussels and the Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam,
featuring a series of international events.
