Igor Stromajer, known for his guerrilla performance work with Brane Zorman as the Ballettikka Internettikka, Internet Ballet (image above), will present his work next Thursday (18/02/2010) at the Thursday Club, Goldsmiths. Ballettikka Internettikka is:
is a series of tactical art projects which began in 2001 with the exploration of Internet ballet. It explores wireless Internet ballet performances combined with guerrilla tactics and mobile live Internet broadcasting strategies.
Since 2001 twenty different Ballettikka Internettikka actions have been performed at various locations across the world, all broadcast online.
Ballettikka Internettikka uses impossible connections to develop the possible strategies of resistance and disobedience. The project participates in the already existing protocols of communication, yet without being servile to these protocols, it opens up links between emotionality and technology, production and ethics, desire and organization, imagination and institution. The distribution of politics and intimacy without any reason and purpose, with the use of limited, defined, and controlled protocols is a dystopia and an unsubmissive revolt to the world of capital, which can be disarmed only by the use of its own tactics.
Above is the latest performance by Ballettikka Internettikka in 2009, Nipponnikka, on the Japanese island Minami Torishima, 23 November 2009.
The event is being held at the Ben Pimlott lecture theatre, Ben Pimlott Building, Goldsmiths, London. Location details can be found here.
