Rhizome article on Ars & TELE-INTERNET

without comments

From the report by Michelle Kasprzak about Ars Electronica 2010 relased on September 29th, 2010

“…….In the midst of it all, I found myself again and again gravitating towards the beating heart of the whole festival experience, “TELE-INTERNET” curated by Aram Bartholl. The salon-like space had a few terminals set up, internet-cafe style; some folding chairs around a small stage area; and several long tables covered with stuff and people working side by side to make things. Informal talks were held in the small stage area, and you could grab a coffee or the German hacker’s drink of choice, Club-Mate, while listening in. There was a sense of things both happening and about to happen, an unmistakable buzz. Festival goers could sit down and make something, listen to someone talking about things they were making or doing, or just drink coffee and use the internet at one of the terminals. It was a bit of blissful semi-chaos that encouraged people to stay and so was often very busy. Bartholl always played the arms-length host, letting things unfold, giving me the sense that if I wanted to, I could have grabbed the microphone and just started talking. It was a situation that I wished could have gone on for days or even weeks, to see what would happen and eventually evolve. …..”

Thanks Michelle!!!

SPEED SHOW vol.3 in Amsterdam

without comments

first released on FAT

SPEED SHOW vol.3: 'Peace!' in Amsterdam! from Aram Bartholl on Vimeo.

On my way to the Netherlands last Wednesday (for the ‘Shadow Dance‘ group show in Amersfoort) I decided in the last minute to set up a SPEED SHOW on short notice in Amsterdam for the following day. At the end of the 6h train ride I had all artist emailed and confirmed, speed curated!

Constant Dullaart picked a great Internet-shop remotely via Google Streetview (oh man, we need that in DE finally too!), Peter Luining checked it out and fetched me a phone number. Thx for support! I called the guy the night before and all was set. Since the shop doesn’t sell anything else than voice and internet we had to bring our own drinks. :-) (which he was cool with. Is that possible in NYC?!?)

Although the show was anounnced only one night in advance we had a fine crowd of visitors and lot’s of rain (which made everyone look at the art ;-). Thx to all for showing up on short notice! Thx to the artists! Thx to the ‘A.Internetcafe’-team!
