At Oscars International we like to encourage our students to get out, about and practice their English while discovering more about the great city and country they live in. Every Thursday we publish Three This Thursday – events or happenings that we believe they might enjoy. This week we have a lecture on Internet Art, Movie Night & Online Theatre.

Control, Alt, Delete —A lecture on the history and politics of Internet Art – Thursday 23rd July – 4pm – 5pm – FREE ONLINE

The lecture will outline the origins of Internet Art in the 1990s outlining works by the duo Joan Hermskerk and Dirk Paesmans, Olia Lialina, Hito Steyerl, to the Post-Internet, considering works that are derived in and from the Internet or its effects on aesthetics, culture and politics. Through a variety of examples drawn from contemporary art, mass media and popular culture, Wasser will suggest how those effects have become co-opted and used against the one time promise of a networked world. The lecture will also aim to generate a discourse that will necessarily complicate and dismantle the binary of URL/IRL* that persists in this present moment. It is free but you do have to regisgter.
