13.5 – 25.9.2011


The exhibition gateways. Art and Networked Culture introduces a young generation of artists whose work deals with the changing conditions of a networked world – a world increasingly transmitted through media. The artistic works presented here use various means to tackle the theme of gateways that lead to realms of action and experience in our digitally interconnected culture.

The artists invited by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Kumu Art Museum as part of the program for Tallinn, European Capital of Culture 2011, use electronic networks and mobile technologies to encourage active public participation and to transmit new perceptual experiences.

REMOTEWORDS will be part of the exhibition project “Gateways” at Kunstimuuseum (KUMU) in Tallinn, Estonia. The museum will be marked as REMOTEWORDS#16 in May 2011.

a large-scale, accessible satellite picture of the surrounding exhibition space at KUMU invites any visitor to cover one roof with a message. The statements are directly applied to the satellite picture on the spot. By means of the REMOTEWORDS’ blog, virtual visitors from around the world can contribute statements on issues such as urbanity, navigation, digitality, virtual simulation and city (urban space).
