Google gives you “free” services in exchange of your private data. The data collected is exploited in many ways, mostly for target you with advertising and in the most extreme situations can be turned over spy agencies from governments with way too much computing-power and the wrong dose of paranoia. All your data are belong to U.S.
Obviously, serious business “intelligence services” know that data can produce a lot of sociability; The Data Klubb – just like they do it (really)- is a party where you can exchange your pieces of data and personal information for a free beer. Just that.
The Data Klubb also teamed up with Science Friction, for the launch of “Anarchival: The end-to-end principle”, an interpretation by Bitbureau of some of the material from the Piratbyrån’s archive that follows the narrative of their previous book pwer.brocoli.kopimi.
F.A.T was invited last week to the ALT CPH in Fabrikken during the Copenhagen Art Week. Given that tele-text is the number one public information service in Scandinavia it only made sense to present the information about F.A.T and the works we exhibited in this way. Lucky me, my friend Raquel Meyers is a text-mode extraordinaire and i ask her for this amazing tele-text piece specially for F.A.T.
Release early, often and in text-mode!
Thanks everyone for comming to the debate on the current state of technology and power organized by Kunsten, and joining the Data Klubb party, were we hosted with Science Friction the release of the new Piratbyrån’s book “Anarchival: The end to end principle”. So stay tuned for books, data and free beer.
mycket <3 Raquel!

Alt_Cph – the meeting place for artist-run spaces and initiatives – welcomes the audience to a loud and vibrant art fair at the Factory of Art and Design from August 30th till September 1st. In addition to the 23 art spaces and the many artists that they have invited, Alt_Cph 13 is proud to present three generous programmes of debates, performances and music in collaboration with Kunsten.nu, Liveart and Thorgej Steen Hansen.
Alt_Cph started out in 2006 as the Alternative Art Fair – a title that we’re still proud to be associated with. Alt_Cph is not a framework for a specific kind of art but rather a necessary supplement to the more established and institutionalized art scene.
‘Concoction’ is the title we’ve chosen for the fair in order to capture the particularity of Alt_Cph 13. It refers to a mix of different ingredients – a fabrication even – or a strange combination of materials, people and ideas
The Alt_Cph 13 curatorial team: Camilla Nørgård, Mette Høyen Andersen, Claus Bjerre, Bank & Rau, Mille Winther and Maria Gry Bregnbak.
How do we give value to immaterial goods? How do we buy and sell digital images? What is the relationship between economics and digital aesthetics? How can curators and artists create new platforms and models for the creation of economic exchange? These are some of the questions that this show attempts to answer. We are currently accepting artwork (video, jpg, gifs, 3d models or HTML content) that will feature in a unique gallery-based exhibition. The exhibition is composed of two parts – a gallery-sited virtual show, and the online production and distribution of materially-realised limited-edition goods.
Preview May 24 6 – 9 pm
Show runs May 25 – July 13
