<nettime-ann> Langenthal 26.8- 16.11 2014

From: Barbara Strebel <>

Megarave 28 August â 16 November 2014

It is twenty years since the great days of the Gugelmann megaraves in Roggwil, near Langenthal. It was also in 1994 that Netscape Navigator 1.0 came on the market and what was then the new World Wide Web began to become popular. Taking this look back as its starting point, "Megarave-Metarave" deals with artistic responses to the aesthetic, social, ecoÂnomic and political questions thrown up by digital life and considers the historical traces of the futuristic promises of rave culture and the early web.
