Digicult interview 2017



New interview online by Marco Mancuso for the Digicult platform.


“With a degree in digital media design and a relatively short career which began no later than 2010, Jeroen Van Loon has shortly become one of the most interesting media artist internationally. His research is able to surprisingly and ironically integrate a critical approach to the use of technological tools – in particular the Internet, with a solid theoretical and conceptual framework. Such an approach results in the production of objects and installations that enter the exhibition space with disarming immediacy.”

04-01-2017     TRANSMEDIALE 2017


I will take part in Transmediale’s “alien matter”, exhibition curated by Inke Arns, with An Internet (2015).


“Within the scope of ever elusive – thirty years of transmediale, the special exhibition “alien matter” will be on view at Haus der Kulturen der Welt from 2 February to 5 March 2017. The exhibition is curated by Inke Arns and co-financed by Berlin LOTTO Foundation.


Approximately 20 exhibiting artists from Berlin and around the world will present works about shifts within such power structures, raising questions about the state of our current environment and whether it has already passed the tipping point, becoming “alien matter.”

Moneylab #3

27-10-2016     MONEYLAB #3


I will take part, and talk about Cellout.me,  in Session 2: When Art Mirrors Marx during the third Moneylab conference organised by Institute of Network Cultures.


“The aim of MoneyLab is to research, map and probe (alternative) strategies of redistribution and intervention in digital economy. It starts with the conviction that after the great Bank Robbery of 2008, we can no longer only criticize financial capitalism but need to map and probe alternatives.”


MoneyLab #3 Failing Better
A two day symposium of talks, workshops, performances and parties that conquer the assumption that anything is too big to fail.


1-2 December 2016
