Monochromacity has been considered the most essential form of abstraction, having provided a source of inspiration for non-figurative and non-representational tendencies in contemporary art, these ideas need to be taken still further in the age of digital images. The notion of a "pure" medium proposed by twentieth-century modernism with its ideals of autonomy is increasingly being pushed aside by mixed media approaches. How does the media quality of a digital image determine its appearance? If the Internet is used as a tool for communicating artistic expression, how does that relate to the history of art? Which ways of reading the Internet have users developed? These questions point to the fact that reflecting on this condition is not an end in itself, but at best an intrinsic and obvious undertaking. The exhibition WHITE, YELLOW, BLUE, AND BLACK, ONE COINCIDENCE, AND ONE OBJECT. presents eight international positions in Internet-based art that embrace monochromacity as a formal principle without clinging to the ideological aims of earlier artistic avant-gardes. --- --- --- --- --- *Artworks/artists:* The White Website (2002), by UBERMORGEN .COM http://www.ubermorgen.com/THE_WHITE_WEBSITE webzen (2009), by Michael Kargl - aka carlos katastrofsky http://katastrofsky.cont3xt.net/webzen Let’s Turn This Fucking Website Yellow .com (2007-2008), by Charles Broskoski http://letsturnthisfuckingwebsiteyellow.com International Klein Blue (Google Monochromes) (2008), by Ryan Barone http://www.ryanbarone.com/international-klein-blue-google-monochromes.html Blue Monochrome .com (2008), by Jan Robert Leegte http://bluemonochrome.com The Black Website (2002), by UBERMORGEN .COM http://www.ubermorgen.com/THE_BLACK_WEBSITE IP Monochrome (2006), by Reynald Drouhin http://www.incident.net/works/ipm all you can see (2008), by Michael Kargl - aka carlos katastrofsky http://katastrofsky.cont3xt.net/opusmagnum --- --- --- --- --- curated by Birgit Rinagl, Franz Thalmair exhibition display by Michael Kargl This is a newsletter by CONT3XT.NET <http://cont3xt.net/> (ZVR: 999765999, Vienna/Austria).
