mikrogalleri.es is an open platform for participatory arts online. It focuses on the internet user to participate in remote art works and spaces online. mikrogalleri.es allows you to create art works online by sending/uploading images into remote galleries or museums.
What is mikrogalleri.es?
The new ZKM platform “mikrogalleri.es” allows online users to present images in distributed places for art and in real at remote locations, at the same time each user creates new art images online to share.
mikrogalleri.es takes any images and publishes them physically in choosen remote spaces, e.g. at the media museum of ZKM or in any recently opened mikrogalleri; during presentation and in the various artistic contexts a high-quality picture is taken with automatic and synchronised cameras, new images are virtually created as participatory art images. The project goes further than flickr: it does not only network the data of digital cameras as participatory images, but also the cameras itself and with them their physical and artistic context, place, or space.
mikrogalleri.es as network of participatory production is a further step from “user generated content” to “user created/shared media”, a preview to the new generation of the web: The Internet of Things. This new and open platform is an invitation to public institutions worldwide, to private studios, to small and big places of art, and also to dynamic social and creative spaces like laboratories and cafés; each user can open a new mikrogalleri and be part of the ZKM platform for participatory visual art
