About the first KEF:
".this exhibition does not assume its political identification by advocating
explicit and important political concepts (capitalism, communism, nation,
race, gender, power), but on the basis of the very order of things, system
of organising, archiving and classification of 'electronic trails',
incomparable identities of everyday life routine. we are talking of the

and infantile realism reflecting the present moment and at the same time
serving as its building blocks." Misko Suvakovic (you may find the complete
text at www.cyberrex.org/kef/misko.html)

make it as short as I'd like it to be, have it look like just the way it
pleases me. and I've never managed to do that. But there are people who

About the second KEF:
".short electronic forms bring us back to the culture of handymen retrained
to be electronic bricoleurs who represent today the most vital and wholesome
offspring of digital reconfiguration of creativity." Dejan Sretenovic (you

". in what other way to make people get used to quality and, if you like,
'critical thinking'? Hence, storm the radio and television! Enough of
modesty and underground resistance. Basta!" Maja M. Marinkovic (you may find
