Look into the Net. NET.ARTography

March 07 - April 21, 2014

At the opening will be present:

Prof. Dr. Claudia Giannetti, director of the Edith-Russ-Haus
Mr. Pedro Martínez-Avial Martín, consul general of Spain
Mr. Gustavo Romano, curator of the exhibition

The works shown in this exhibition of the internationally most relevant
net artists belong to the collection of NETescopio, iniciated in 2008
and since then constantly developed by the Spanish Museum of
Contemporary Art of Extremadura and Latin America MEIAC, Badajoz. With
NETescopio, the MEIAC is a pioneer in the availability of an Internet
accessible art collection beyond the physical presence of the actual
Museum. A selection of 120, partly no longer accessible, key works
covers the panorama of net art production from the 1990s until today.
This exhibition is in this sense a unique opportunity to gain an insight
into the net art tendencies and their aesthetics. The main objective of
the NETescopio archive, which makes also a historical classification of
the collected works, is the preservation of the works, characterized by
the incorporation of a large numbers of Spanish and Latin American net

In addition, we would like to present you following lecture of the
