Launch of "CyPosium: the book"
The net artists Gretta Louw and Helen Varley Jamieson warmly invite you to the Gastatelier, PLATFORM (Munich) on Friday 12 December at 19.00, for an evening of networked performance: an exhibition tour and the launch of "CyPosium - the book", with online performative readings.

The exhibition "Net Work" is curated by Gretta Louw, the current guest artist at PLATFORM. The exhibition deals with work that is located at the intersection of performance and net art. The emerging genre of networked performance makes strong statements about the development of art history, and also about our relationship to technology and its impact on culture, society, labor and psychology. The exhibition presents works by Gretta Louw, Luke Munn, Igor Stromajer, Annie Abrahams and plan b (Sophia New and Daniel Belasco Rogers) and a new project developed by Louw during her residency at PLATFORM: "The Net Work Copendium" is an-always evolving collection of short films by artists working with digital networks and performativity and gives the viewer a unique introduction to this avant-garde form of art production.
