Internet Yami-ichi / Black Market: 9 – 10 May 2015, Amsterdam

A celebration of the Internet in the theatrical context of an analogue market
After being held in Tokyo, Berlin and Brussels, the Internet Yami-ichi / Black Market is coming to the Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond in Amsterdam on the 9th and 10th of May. This phenomenon is a highly concentrated whirlwind of Internet art and culture within the context of a market bursting with products and performances. Artists, designers, innovative thinkers and outsiders will be selling concepts and concrete products plucked from, played on or responding to the online world.

So turn off, log-out, and drop in, on the real world. The Internet Yami-Ichi is a flea market for “browsing” face-to-face

The Internet Yami-ichi / Black Market celebrates the Internet in all its glory at the buzzing setting of a flea market. The cultural miracle we call the Internet crawls away from behind the glaring screen and drags along our so very dear memes, trolls, cats and glitches as well as the Web’s most obscure details including MacBook air air, the You Cube channel en analogue scroll bars to the booths. Artists, designers and other netizens are selling their wares at the Internet Yami-ichi / Black Market.

With over 50 artists from the Netherlands, Belgium and beyond including:
Dries Depoorter,, Aram Bartholl, Rosa Menkman, Marisa Olson, Jeff Donaldson, Martine Neddam, ArtEZ, KABK, BrowserBased, Karina Pálosi, Nikos Voyiatzis, Piet Zwart Instituut, Kareem Lotfy, Hendrickje Schimmel, Heinze Havinga & Erik Kroes, Peter Luining, Fabio Paris, Bits of Freedom, Harm van den Dorpel, Hermen Maat & Karen Lancel, Noraly Schiet & Aylin, Hello & Welcome Inc., SETUP, Barbara Dubbeldam, Douwe Smits / Luis Rodil Fernandez of Greenhost, Jo Caimo, YouCube and many many others.


International Visitors Programme – Filip Visnjic and Matthew Plummer-Fernandez
Date: 17:05, Rotterdam, 15:00 – 17:00

The contemporary era is characterised by radical technological, economic, cultural and social shifts. Het Nieuwe Instituut aims to illuminate and map a rapidly changing world while at the same time fostering discussion of topics related to the vast field of design. All the institute’s activities are grounded in the principles of design and innovation – two concepts bound up with changing value systems and conflict.

Het Nieuwe Instituut organises exhibitions, lectures and fellowships, carries out research and development projects, and publishes reports on the outcomes of its projects. These are carried out within three multiyear programmes: Landscape and Interior, Things and Materials, and a third whose theme changes annually (2014: World War I; 2015: World’s Fairs). Het Nieuwe Instituut arose on 1 January 2013 out of a merger of the Netherlands Architecture Institute; Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion; and Virtueel Platform, the e-culture knowledge institute.

This afternoon Matthew Plummer-Fernandez and Filip Visnjic take visitors on a short safari through contemporary algorithmic culture. Algorithms are operations formulated step by step with which computers carry out tasks. Learning algorithms can, to some extent, adjust their own rules. Plummer and Visnjic show how these learning algorithms penetrate our lives in all sorts of ways. This event is a collaboration between FIBER and The New Institute.
