Tirana Biennale 02: "U-Topos"  New Media


Tirana, Albania, from september 12 to october 25 2003

"Global conscience as utopia"

Internet has defined a new kind of space based on a new concept of time: Temporality based on moment of 24h00 which are moving from second to second. This media space which fluctuates and which is moving and migrating is defining a new kind of globalization. This can be compared to a kind of a Utopic topos.
U -Topos is the favorite place for some artists that use this media to explore how our perception is evolving. They may propose a new kind of critique about human factor in technological time, or they may also focus on a new definition and status of art. Concepts such as "Time ready made", "neen", "language art", are often used by this generation.

I will ask these artists to produce specific pieces where they can bring their perception of the concept of "Global conscience as Utopia".
