usly?in?four?cities:?Karlsruhe?(ZKM),?Graz?(steirischer?herbst),
??????Tokyo?(ICC?InterCommunication?Center),?and?Barcelona?(MECAD?Media?Centre?d

??????This?exhibition?project?with?about?100?positions?does?not?only?attempt?to?
provide?a?comprehensive?synopsis?of?the?current?state?of?net.art,
??????but?intends?above?all?to?give?an?introduction?to?the?political?economic?id
eas,?to?social?practices?and?artistic?applications?of?the?online
??????communication?within?the?net?community.

??????Net.art?-?reaching?from?physical?local?installations?to?the?world-widely?l

et.art?is?thus?not?only?the?most?recent?phase?of?media?art
??????characterising?the?media?discourse,?(following?video?sculpture?of?the?80's
?and?interactive?computer?installations?of?the?90's)?but?is?also?the
??????art?form?to?which?the?greatest?political?utopian?ideas?are?attached.?One?c
ondition?and?a?principle?reflection?that?feed?the?interest?in?the
??????development?of?a?global?network,?is?the?belief?that?the?social-revolutiona
ry?hopes?of?the?historical?avant-garde?can?be?fulfilled
??????technologically?now.

??????Every?new?medium,?every?new?technical?image?carrier,?relinquishes?several?
characteristics?as?compared?to?the?previous?image?media,?but
??????generally?introduces?several?new?characteristics?that?are?superior?to?hist
orical?image?media?in?terms?of?certain?aspects.?Thus,?the
??????emergence?of?new?image?media?will?not?efface?the?old?image?media,?instead?
the?new?media?will?force?its?conditions?on?the?old?media.?"The
??????Photographic?Condition"?(Rosalind?Krauss)?has?changed?painting,?video?has?

ell?as?the?historical?social?forms?of?communication?and?economy
??????have?been?subjugated?by?the?net.

??????The?net_condition?is?not?only?reduced?to?two-dimensional?images?and?texts?
on?the?screen,?but?rather?the?net?in?virtual?space?controls?the
??????sequence?of?events?in?real?space?and?the?events?in?real?space?control?the?
sequence?of?events?in?virtual?space.?Shared?virtual?realities,
??????shared?cyberspace,?dislocated?communication,?multi-user?environments?and?a
n?island?of?net-games?are?the?focuses?of?the?exhibition.
??????Dozens?of?local?players?in?the?exhibition?space?will?interact?with?dozens?
of?world-widely-distributed?players?in?the?virtual?net-space.

??????A?second?major?focus?is?to?demonstrate?specific?production?procedures?and?
