[Nettime-ro] AltArt>> DC++: BARE SHARE exhibition>> Culturescapes, Basel

*DC++: Bare Share*
*we were uncool before uncool was cool*

Culturescapes Festival (www.culturescapes.ch)
Basel, Unternehmen Mitte Basel
14 November - 2 December 2007
Bare Share is a project of: AltArt Foundation
curator: Istvan Szakats

The AltArt exhibition at Culturescapes speaks about the evolution of romanian digital society. It presents the DC++ phenomenon in Romania arguing that while the administration's efforts to meet EU standards stumbled in social evolutionism, the combination of technological development and illiteracy in permission culture "beamed up" the romanian internet generation to face the very issues of contemporary virtual social space - e.g. producing remix culture or playing gift economies. This is framed - specific to the romanian context - by a romantic manner in tackling self-representation or telling private from public space - as illustrated by the selected collection of cultural artefacts collected from public DC++ hubs.
