Net artist and @GIFmodel Olia Lialina’s performance lecture will explore the ruins of the internet’s faded promise of end-to-end communication, taking in further shifts along the way: peer-to-peer and the my to me.

The web lies in ruins. And these are not the pages last updated in the past century, missing images, broken links. Who sees them anyway? Who remembers the difference between the internet and the World Wide Web? Who cares? 

Who needs links? Instagram users, which today well equal the numbers of the web population, don’t take to the streets to demand their right to link. The one link in the standard bio field is enough and even too much. Even this one link causes anxiety and constitutes a threat to the perfectly orchestrated “me.”

These “me’s”are in fact the ruins: remnants and debris of the world that was supposed to be “my.”
