Abstract (English)

"Since their first meeting on the eve of Y2K, Russian­-born Olia Lialina, one of the best known participants in the 1990s scene, and American artist Cory Arcangel have been involved in a deeply symmetrical relationship. Uniting them is an abiding preoccupation with the relationship between people and their computers, in particular computers connected to the internet. Their awareness of the cultural implications of the internet’s technical context—as it has shifted from a tool for military communications, to the “information superhighway” that promised open and equal exchange, to the increasingly asymmetric “content delivery system” it has become today—has resulted in two complex bodies of work in constant conversation with each other, seen here together for the first time." -- Publisher's website.
