Dear Friends of surveillance and better times!

!Mediengruppe Bitnik: Too big to Fail Too Small to Succeed

An intervention into the financial systems of London and Zurich. 
Reconaissance, media technologies and advertsing playfully probe the 
blind spots of the financial districts and question the shift in power 
from state to corporation.

3 Sep - 2 Oct
Private View 2 Sep 6.30-9pm
SPACE Courtyard and Mare Street Advertising Billboard
129 131 Mare Street, London E8 3RH

This is Swiss artist collective !Mediengruppe Bitnik's first UK solo 
exhibition and is presented concurrently with an exhibition at Les 
Complices in Zurich. It follows their three-month PERMACULTURES 
residency at SPACE investigating the parasitic potential of media-based 
systems against the backdrop of the financial crises. !Mediengruppe 
Bitnik describe their work as an 'explorative practice' to determine how 
systems can be subverted, interfered with and transformed.

Too Big To Fail / Too Small To Succeed is kindly supported by Swiss 
Cultural Fund in Britain.

Chess For CCTV Operators
Performance in the surveillance space of Essen, August 2010
Video 15'37''

For "Chess for CCTV Operators" !Mediengruppe Bitnik is in Essen for 
three days in order to challenge CCTV Operators to a chess game. For 
this purpose they trace surveillance signals, hijack them and replace 
them with their own video signal, the chessboard. Thus the surveillance 
monitor in the control room is taken over and turned into a game console.

With their invitation to play !Mediengruppe Bitnik breaks the power 
structure of the surveillance situation - a subtle performance for a 
single and specifically selected recipient.

Les Complices*, Zürich, Switzerland
Too Big To Fail / Too Small To Succeed

Eröffnung: Mittwoch, 25. August 2010, ab 18h
19h: Kommentar zur Finanzkrise von Kaspar Surber, WOZ-Redaktor
Ausstellung bis 18. September 2010
Do, Fr, Sa: 14 - 18h

Hinweis Veranstaltung: Following The Crisis
Donnerstag, 16. September 2010
15:30h: Les Complices*
19:30h: anschliessendes Essen im Les Complices*

Die Finanzkrise ausgelöst im Frühsommer 2007 durch die amerikanische 
Immobilienkrise und eine weltweite kreditfinanzierte Massenspekulation 
an den Finanzmärkten verursacht in der überhitzten Weltwirtschaft einen 
Systemabsturz. Ein Absturz – so hoffen manche – der Raum gibt, um über 
alternative Wirtschaftssysteme oder zumindest über Korrekturen des 
gegenwärtigen Systems nachzudenken. Kaum zwei Jahre nach dem 
Zusammenbruch der Grossbank Lehman Brothers schreiben die verbliebenen 
Grossbanken wieder satte Gewinne, die Medien sprechen von Aufschwung, 
die Grossbanken bleiben „too big to fail“ und können auch in Zukunft 
spekulative Risiken eingehen, die sie ohne staatliche Absicherung nicht 
eingehen würden.

Während eines Rechercheaufenthaltes in London im Frühjahr 2010 hat die 
!Mediengruppe Bitnik das Finanzsystem auf sein parasitäres Potential hin 
untersucht. Sie haben das Finanzsystem, seine Medien und Strukturen in 
verschiedenen Feldversuchen unter die Lupe genommen, um festzustellen 
wie sie in diese Systeme eingreifen und ihre Prozesse für eine 
spielerische Intervention öffnen können.

Mit der Ausstellung «Too Big To Fail / Too Small To Succeed», die 
gleichzeitig in den Space Studios in London und bei Les Complices* 
stattfindet, eignet sich die !Mediengruppe Bitnik mit den 
psychogeographischen Mitteln des «Sich-Leitenlassens» den städtischen 
Aussenraum der Finanzplätze Zürich und London an. Entstanden sind dabei 
subjektive Beobachtungen, die mit den Mitteln der Observation die Spuren 
der Krise im städtischen Raum suchen.
