Mosaik kommt in die Mauer

Der Künstler Wolf Vostell zementierte sein Auto ein und nannte es Ruhender Verkehr. Das war 1969. Vor zwei Jahren machte sich erneut ein Künstler auf den Weg und zementierte einen Alltagsgegenstand ein. Kein Auto, sondern einen USB-Stick. Aram Bartholl pflanzte das digitale Speichermedium in eine Mauerritze in New York. Die Idee stammt aus einer Zeit, in der geheime Nachrichten per Post übermittelt wurden. Menschen, die sich unerkannt Informationen zukommen lassen wollten, nutzten als Medien so genannte Tote Briefkästen, Dead Drops. Das waren kleine Stifte oder Boxen, die sie zum Beispiel in Astlöchern oder Mauerritzen versteckten. Nur Adressat und Empfänger wussten davon. Der Künstler Aram Bartholl verwandelt USB-Sticks in Dead Drops. Diese toten Briefkästen sind alles andere als geheim. Jeder hat Zugang. Er kann Bilder, Texte, Töne drauf laden oder runterladen. Mit diesem Kunstprojekt löste Aram Bartholl eine weltumspannende Bewegung aus.

DVD dead drop at MMI

without comments

I am very pleased to announce a new piece! I ve been working on this with the MMI for a while now and I am very excited it’s shaping up. (THX Jason Eppink!!) As a follow-up project from the Dead Drops piece the DVD dead drop offers a new perspective on filesharing and museum art shows in public space :) In a monthly cycle digital exhibitions and featured content will be accessible through a slot in the wall of the MMI :) (make sure you keep that old machine with a DVD drive!)
