MAMA and WDKA present an evening examining the impact of the Internet on contemporary art. Has the Internet changed contemporary art? If so, how has it changed and where is it visible? Several speakers shall present their views, their work, and answer questions from the audience. This evening has been organised in response to Brad Troemel's solo exhibition The Social Life of Things, at Showroom MAMA from November 5 - December 23. The exhibition's central theme looks at how information and objects are distributed among networks of people on the Internet and in the real world, and what are the subsequent consequences of this distribution.
