Internet Yami-Ichi 5 Brussels
Internet-ish artworks market + Performances by Exonemo & JODI
Internet Yami-Ichi (インターネットヤミ市)
literally "Internet Black Market". By mixing different Japanese writing systems the word "yami" takes on the double meaning of "sick for / addicted to". Therefore, a more accurate translation might be "Internet Obsessives Market".
"S*%t happens. Didn't used to. Like when some small off-handed private comment turns into a flamewar. Or worrying about not getting enough . The Youtube videos you can't watch anymore because somebody complained. Or the apps you can't play because they were ✖rejected✖ by Apple. Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for "liberty". Nowadays it's so uptight". – IDPW.org
The Japanese collective IDPW.org invites us to perpetuate "in real life" the freedom and joyful anarchy of the early web. The Internet Yami-Ichi draws its inspiration from flea markets, these chaotic assemblages that combine hidden gems, unlikely objects, collectibles and useless trash.
Turn off, log-out, and drop in
In this market of a new kind, artists, creatives and makers sell internet-related / internetish objects. Books, artworks, fashion items, materialised data: physical artefacts that escape an increasingly cautious, controlled and censured online world.
Through this fun, friendly and laid-back event, Internet Yami-Ichi questions the ubiquity of the digital, its (dis)illusions and future(s).
After a successful edition at the Berlin Transmediale 2014, iMAL invites IDPW.org for the second Internet Yami-Ichi outside of Japan. The Brussels edition will take place in the wonderful Art Nouveau architecture of the Ateliers des Tanneurs, right next to their famous organic food market!
