Fach & Asendorf Gallery debuted online in 2011 with these words:
The Internet, it is everywhere. It is here, it is there and it is where you actually are. It is so huge that nobody ever could print it. It is so deep that no one ever would dive to its end. There is peace and war in it, love and hate and all between. Once you have traveled through it, you will never forget, and you will come back, asap.
Since then, Fach & Asendorf Gallery has served 24 online exhibitions of digital and net art to more than 28,000 unique visitors. To celebrate the beginning of their third season, Fach & Asendorf Gallery presents BEST OF, an enormous collection of unreleased and exclusive work by 76 artists from around the world spanning a broad range of formats including applications, videos, and animated GIFs. BEST OF is a whole week of Internet on DVD.

The official trailer of the unreleased gameWatch Dogs features a scene in a dark new media art gallery in Chicago. At the end of the preview the owner (galerist ?) gets killed by the player in shoot out in the street. In a viral marketing attempt UBI has set up a gallery website with RIP message dotconnexion.ubi.com for the passed art philanthropy. There are also two very interesting interviews on the same site featuring media artists of the gallery. ;)

Currently on show at bauer & ewald, Berlin, iPhone live party upcoming Saturday, 11th 8pm :)
I, Johannes P Osterhoff, shall do another one-year performance piece. The piece is called “iPhone live” and documents the activities performed on my mobile phone during this year. Activities can be seen streamed on http://www.iphone-live.net and on public projections. The performance shall start on June 29, 2012 and shall end on June 29, 2013. I shall not use other mobile phones during this year.
Are you at dOCUMENTA (13) and desperately waiting for one of the iPods to experience the new, beautiful and site specific Janet Cardiff piece? Instead of queuing in line I recommend to take the tour with your own phone while playing this Youtube docu clip of the piece below. It’s super fun and adds and extra layer of confusion to the piece! :)

Stefan Krappitz finished his studies with the essay Troll Culture, A comprehensive Guide. It can be read online through a typical imageboard interface. Other options are free PDF dowmlod and print on demand at lulu.com. The book introduces the history of trolling on- and offline and how 4chan, the “best and worst place” on the Internet, became its new incubator. Stefan is brave enough to teach his readers how to be a troll and how to defend yourself against trolls. Stefan gives his definition of what trolling is on page 35:
Trolling is the act of disrupting people for personal amusement or the amusement of many.
This book is required reading for anybody interested in a differentiated discussion of trolling. Forget your prejudices about anonymity, hostility and jerkiness of trolls. Trolling is a art. Problem?
By blogging this video by Brad Tromel I try to improve my … “constant broadcast of my identity as recognizably unique brand.” :) Good stuff @Brad!
Re-told version of a lecture given at PS1 MoMA for the release of NYU Press’s Social Media Reader about the effects social media has had on young artists, contrasting the vision of a utopian commons with the rise of personal branding.
