No computers, no screens, no digital prints and especially no Internet:
Webcrash/2800 is the title and the online address of an exhibition shown
at Pictura in Dordrecht (Netherlands) in Mai 2008 which mainly focuses
on the link as the representative of the artwork in real space.
The show was curated by Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans, better known as
JODI, the label which the duo realises Internet-based Art with since the
Mid-1990s. The artists provide a window into their recent work in the
following interview with Franz Thalmair.

The exhibition "Webcra.sh/2800″ deals mainly with activities on the Internet,
which Jodi have been exploring as artists since the mid-1990s. But despite,
or perhaps precisely because of its restrictive formal focus on art in the
tradition of “net.art,” it is a successful example of the translation of
these artworks into real space. The choice of a display form that takes its
point of departure from the Internet allows for an adequate representation on
both levels, i.e. online as well as offline, together with a reinterpretation
 of the individual works in a context as yet unknown at the time of the show.
The change in perspective to which visitors can submit in the course of this
multimedia transfer resembles the way in which the tangent touches the circle
 lightly and at but one point,
i.e. it is like a free translation of the original, which according to context
is reformulated and must now be dispatched into the language’s liberty of movement
