Surrounded by bipolarities, we try to free ourselves from nationalist ideas, while at the same time we have to deal with specific problems. While internet-based projects promise to reach a global audience, they also draw attention to otherwise forgotten regional specificities. The internet has become a political-dictatorial ground, but it is also the place where connective tissue is formed. Rather than creating a cartography characterised by an up-and-down model, this exhibition explores the gap between the local and the global and how this in-between comes to light in certain digital artworks. The exhibition is part of SAVVY Contemporary’s Magical Hackerism project in collaboration with panke.gallery, funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The exhibition takes place within the framework of Berlin Art Week.
