media/digital images.
"Cluster Images is an attempt to show that clusters, when used in art, may
be of significance, beyond aesthetic indifference, in terms of
differentiation and structure for parallels between networked images. This
could spawn the discovery of a new reference space for such forms of
expression as installation, performance, multimedia construction and
virtual images: a space of social networking. Cluster Images can thus be
seen as an attempt to avoid the vagueness of unrelated snippets of

*Medienbiennale Leipzig 1997
June 1997
Exhibition, conference (themes still to be defined).
In June 1997 the 3rd Medienbiennale will take place in Leipzig (Germany).
The previous exhibitions took place in the Museum of Fine Arts, Leipzig
(1992) and in the industrial bulding complex of the former textile factory
VEB Buntgarnwerke (1994). In 1994 under the concept of "Minima Media"
(written by Dieter Daniels) the Medienbiennale brought together works by 75
international artists. "The show placed work by newcomers alongside that of
internationally recognized artists, juxtaposed historical key positions
with modern telecommunications projects, brought together artists from East
and West. Media art was understood to embrace a wide range of technical
categories: video, film, audio, interaction, CD-ROM, Internet.
Performances, events and installations in public spaces around Leipzig
expanded the dimensions of the project."
