NET.ART TO NET.ACTIVISM

COUCH.CLUB

In recent years, net.art has changed from pure “browser-art” style formal- ism towards a more socially engaged and politically relevant critique of technological “progress”, globalization, and the ever-present apparatus of surveillance and control which the internet has helped to usher in. This discussion will feature presentations of websites and video from Ed Marczewski of the Version Festival–a recent gathering of rebellious web and media artists in Chicago–and from Nathan Martin (Hacktivist.com/Carbon Defense League) and Tyler Jacobsen from Conglomco.org –a website which offers its visitors a chance to print their own barcodes and go shopping at any price.

Moderation: Derek Holzer
