“Made In Internet” is a showcase of short video forms created by web artists. This selection reflects the trends and concepts of contemporary new media in the last 5 years, which revolve around blogs, streaming video and social media: the late, consumer-oriented Web 2.0. In this new artistic universe appropriation is taken for granted, the attention span is short and the reward often takes the form of a conceptual charade. The works in the show stem from the web: they either have been created from found internet material or produced specifically for that platform.

ARTBOOM is an annual urban and public space festival in Krakow, Poland.Past participants include Pipilotti Rist, Miroslaw Balka, Roman Singer and Clemens von Wedemeyer. This year lineup includes Guy Ben Ner, Gustav Metzger, Joan Jonas and Barbara London’s talk about Nam Jun Paik.
