Franco Mattes Discusses Curating Net Art Shows in Uncharted Territory

“If the surface internet is like Art Basel, then the darknet would be your artist-run space in a dirty basement in Bushwick.”
– Italian internet artist Franco Mattes, on “Time Out of Joint,” the online exhibition he and partner Eva curated in “uncharted territory at the periphery of the Internet” as part of the 2020 Yerevan Biennial. “Can we still imagine a place with no likes, shares, comments, and recommendations? A place with only content?” Mattes asks about the darknet as a viable alternative. “It might be liberating, forcing the FOMO out of you.”
