Artist duo Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans, aka, JODI are giving a talk at London’s ICA in response to the question: Artists, what is your value? on January 27.
The talk with JODI, who pioneered the ‘net.art’ movement in the 90s and made artworks and games with the aesthetic produced by incorrect code, comes at a time of recent reflection on early media art and artists for whom the internet provided entirely the space for their work.
Artists, what is your value? Is an ongoing programme held at the ICA which looks as a series to examine performance, presentation and self-worth. JODI’s relationship to the disruption of code and language should create an interesting light in which to understand the means of presentation.
