In what’s looking like a pretty extensive guide to the discourse surrounding the Marisa Olson-coined ‘post-internet’ art that is “consciously created in a milieu where the centrality of the internet is assumed”, it’s a lofty challenge that will no doubt draw fierce debate.
There’s much to consider, especially in terms of that very “centrality” being defined by artists based in Europe and the US, while it will be most interesting to see how inter-generational artists like Hito Steyerl, Bernadette Corporation and Olson will connect with the likes of GCC, Jaakko Pallasvuo and Katja Novitskova; Andrew Norman Wilson, Rachel Reupke, Timur Si-Qin and Simon Denny; Lucky PDF, Bunny Rogers and so on. Because, as is the nature of the internet and the art network-at-large, everything’s related, it’s just how you interpret the data.
