ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (ADA) FEATURES PAOLO CIRIO

Check it out: www.digitalartarchive.at 

The Archive of Digital Art (ADA) features the hacktivist and acclaimed
artist, Paolo CIRIO. The new artist feature of the ADA introduces
selected artists who are represented in the online archive. It will
offer insights into current developments of digital art and the
importance of its documentation. 

In recent years, CIRIO has caused commotion among global companies like
Google, Amazon and Facebook by exploiting their technical and economic
practices and their strategic exploitation of private data. At the
intersection of artistic intervention, social commitment and
technological expertise, Cirio was able to unveil the vulnerabilities of
international enterprises and politics. Distinguished artworks like
“Street Ghosts” (2012), “Persecuting US” (2012), and “P2P
Gift Credit Card – Gift Finance” (2010) dealt with issues like
privacy and personal data, the international finance markets, copyright
and intellectual property, democracy and political participation, and
the contemporary surveillance society. In a genuine and highly creative
way, Cirio constantly raises awareness for breaking boundaries between
personal and corporate spaces and the ethics of contemporary image
cultures.

CURATOR STATEMENTS
Lanfranco ACETI:  “Cirio’s realm of artistic activities is based on
a critique of contemporary society that touches and rattles, as much as
an artwork can, the smooth operations of international corporations.” 

Christiane PAUL:   “As a leading force in ‘hacktivist’ art, Paolo
Cirio has shed light on the ways in which today’s networked platforms
of data aggregation and social media, from Facebook to e-commerce sites,
are shaping the public and private realms.” 

CIRIO also will receive this years “Prix Ars Electronica” for his
hacktivist project “Loophole for all”, which exposed the identities
of over 200,000 companies that took advantage of the tax system on the
Cayman Islands. For a small amount of money, “Loophole for all”
offers these real identities to anyone in order to ‘democratize’ the
tax and legal restrictions and to intervene in the global, yet crooked,
practices of the financial market.

MOST EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTATION OF DIGITAL ART
The Archive of Digital Art provides an extensive, constantly evolving
documentation of Cirio’s and hundreds of leading artists’ oeuvre.
ADA archives artist statements, work descriptions, literature and
information on exhibitions and offers high resolution images, blueprints
and videos. The large assortment of information on Cirio and his
artworks was carried out by the artist in assistance with members of the
ADA community. The new ADA web tool allows artists, scholars and
scientists to actively contribute to the archive and to work
collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art. 

EXPANDED DOCUMENTATION FOR THE NEEDS OF DIGITAL ART
Due to the processual, ephemeral, interactive, technology-based and
fundamentally context-dependent character of digital art, it is at risk
for becoming extinct without an adequate documentation. Therefore, the
ADA is based on an expanded concept of documentation, which takes
account of the specific conditions of digital art. 

THE ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART – PIONEER IN THE FIELD
Since its foundation in 1999, the Archive of Digital Art (former
Database of Virtual Art) has become the most important scholarly online
archive for media art. In cooperation with established media artists,
researchers, and institutions, it has been documenting the rapidly
evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a
decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the
intersection of art, science, and technology.
