REMOTEWORDS was part of the exhibition project “Hacking the City” which took place at the Folkwang Museum in Essen and all over the rest of the City of Essen. “Hacking the City” is a project that reacts to changing structures in the public domain such as mobility and communication within the city. The “Unperfekthaus” in Essen has been inscribed as part of the exhibition project Hacking the City. The message “!=CTRL” refers to open source computer languages like Linux. “!=” is used as a negation or non-operation. Thus “!=CTRL” means not controlled or uncontrolled.
