Co-Workers – The Network as Artist at Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is presenting CO-WORKERS – The Network as Artist: a selection of international artists appearing on the scene in the 2000s whose inventive practices are shaped by our networked world.  Scenography by the New York collective DIS and with the curatorial participation of 89plus, the exhibition foregrounds new artistic languages taking its inspiration from Internet resources. The Musée d’Art Moderne has opted for dividing CO-WORKERS between two sites, each with its own emphasis: The Network as Artist at ARC and Beyond Disaster at BétonsalonCentre for Artistic Research.

With the world in the throes of the third industrial revolution, the use of the Internet and mobile telephone systems has triggered a new mode of communication hinging on an uninterrupted flow of information. While remaining independent, the user is connected to numerous networks – professional, cultural, technological, logistical, – that recognise no geographic boundaries: a form of organisation symptomatic of what sociologist Barry Wellman calls “networked individualism”. “The Internet of Things” implies that humans are no longer the supreme thinking entities – that the things around them constitute a smart environment of so-called “Ambient Intelligence”.

Installations, videos, sculptures and paintings: the contributing artists explore systems of exchange whose complexity outstrips the merely human scale. They investigate the way intelligence and consciousness can be extended to include machines, animals and other living organisms. In a society marked by an accelerating flow of data and the omnipresence of images, these artists work within a culture of the visible, in which the boundaries between the private and public spheres are blurred and intimacy becomes “extimacy”. In devising the exhibition’s scenography DIS, known for its lifestyle platform DIS Magazine, has drawn on shared work spaces, shopping malls, and airport transit areas. The upshot is an event – a network of artworks, interactive installations and performances – that situates the museum in a world where images, objects and information circulate at high speed.

The exhibition themes will be the subject of talks and encounters integrated into The Island (KEN) created in collaboration wih Dornbracht, co-designed by Mike Meiré, a hybrid kitchen/bathroom space specially designed by DIS and coproduced with the New Museum in New York.
