In 1995, eight per cent of all websites on the internet belonged to artists. Today, as the internet has grown to be the commercial structure we know, what is the room artists carve online? This talk will look at a number of specific artworks, which conflate the urban and digital space as well as on the hidden aspects of the internet’s infrastructure. In light of internet changes since 1995, Orit Gat will examine possibilities art opens up to make the internet a genuine public space of the commons.

This Exhibition (de)Tour is part of the public programme of Incomplete Urbanism: Attempts of Critical Spatial Practice.
