Opening: March 8, 2012, 6.30 PM


House of Electronic Arts Basel


Exhibition space: Oslostrasse 10 – 4023 Basel / Münchenstein


The exhibition sets out to demonstrate how the Internet generation is implementing and developing a practice started in the Sixties by Conceptual Art, and further developed in subsequent decades in the forms of Appropriation Art and postproduction: the practice of exploring, collecting, archiving, manipulating and reusing huge amounts of visual material produced by popular culture and advertising. Collect the WWWorld is an attempt to show how art responds to the information society.


Curated by Domenico Quaranta

Co-produced by the LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age and the House of Electronic Arts Basel
