DUE TO SUCCESS EXTENDED until November 26th, 2011 — The art of Hacking focuses on the artistic side of hacking. The artists in this exhibition highlight the imperfections of our surroundings and daily lives.

With works by: Heath Bunting, Harmen de Hoop, moddr_, Cornelia Sollfrank, ÜBERMORGEN.COM, The Yes Men

‘The art of Hacking’ focuses on the artistic side of hacking. The artists in this exhibition highlight the imperfections of our surroundings and daily lives. The projects subvert, improve on or circumnavigate ‘official’ systems and practices and offer alternatives. Superficially, hacking is often associated with spreading online viruses and other digital attacks.


Officially these criminal activities are not really known as hacking, but as ‘cracking’. The real practice of hacking is done based on far more positive and artistic motives. It’s a state of mind and there are elaborate ethical codes within the hacker community.

In short creative hacking combines artists’ technical skills with the optimism to solve problems and the urge to overcome artistic and creative limitations. The basis for these works lies in a technical, online methodology that spreads into the physical world through the tangibility of the artworks.

With:
• An artist talk with several of the participating artists on the 10th of September at 15.00 hrs.
• A panel discussion on the subject of hacking moderated by Jaromil and Cecile Landman with Rop Gonggrijp, Karin Spaink, Patrice Riemens and Heath Bunting taking place in October.
• moddr_ presents several workshops within the framework of ‘The Art of Hacking’.

Information about these activities will be announced on www.nimk.nl and via other social media.


10 september – 12 november 2011
Opening: 9 september 1800 uur
Opening performance door: Nancy Mauro-Flude en netwurker mez

met:
Heath Bunting, Harmen de Hoop, moddr_, Cornelia Sollfrank, ÜBERMORGEN.COM, The Yes Men.

‘The Art of Hacking’ toont de artistieke praktijk van hacking. Op diverse manieren maken de kunstenaars onvolkomenheden van onze alledaagse omgeving zichtbaar. De projecten ondermijnen, verbeteren of omzeilen ‘officiële’ systemen en praktijken en suggereren alternatieve praktijken. Hacking wordt vaak oppervlakkig gezien als het verspreiden van virussen of digitale aanvallen. In feite heten de criminele praktijken niet hacking, maar ‘cracking’ en staat hacking voor een meer positieve en creatieve manier van werken. Hacking is een ‘state of mind’ en gaat gepaard met een serieuze hacker ethiek.


Het creatief hacken combineert technische vaardigheden, de wens om problemen op te lossen en het willen overwinnen van beperkingen binnen een artistieke of creatieve praktijk. Vaak ligt er een technische online methodologie aan ten grondslag die zich verspreidt naar de fysieke wereld of mentaliteit.

Met op:
• 10 september 15.00 uur: artist talks van een aantal deelnemende kunstenaars.
• oktober: paneldiscussie rond het fenomeen hacking gemodereerd door Jaromil en Cecile Landman. Met: Rop Gonggrijp, Karin Spaink, Patrice Riemens en Heath Bunting
• moddr_ presenteert verschillende workshops binnen de context van ‘The Art of Hacking’.

Informatie over deze activiteiten staat binnenkort op www.nimk.nl en wordt via sociale media bekend gemaakt.
