gateways: Art and Networked Culture

The summer’s grand exhibition ‘gateways’ presents new, experimental, media-based forms of art by Europe’s younger generation. The projects are a study of how digital networks and technology influence our everyday lives, activities and perception.

At the centre of this are works that deal, in various ways, with gateways to information and knowledge in today’s digital, networked culture, and offer up alternatives to the mainstream consumerist approach. The now traditional means of communication, access to information and knowledge are all called into question, and the audience is encouraged to actively participate and acquire new experiences. The exhibition establishes a connection with the Tallinn cityscape via performances, audiovisual installations and other events.
