The web is both a means and an end for artist and curator Aleksandra Domanovic. A collaborator in the online curatorial project Vvork Domanovic’s work illustrates the potential for the Internet to completely recontextualize cultural products – be they art, cinema, music, commercials, or politics. Seen through the normalizing frame of our computer screens these various forms of “high” and “low” culture are completely leveled. Made as part of the InternetPavilion project at the 2009 Venice Biennial, Biennale (Dictum Ac Factum) is about the processes of research and inspiration in the Internet age. Originally inspired by Lars Von Trier’s stripped down set for his film Dogville and the inclusion of The Pirate Bay in the same Biennial exhibition, Biennale (Dictum Ac Factum) is a “portrait” of inspiration. From Von Trier, who was inspired by the song “Pirate Jenny” from Threepenny Opera and Bertold Brecht’s idea of verfremdungseffekt (a device “which prevents the audience from losing itself passively and completely in the character”), to Domanovic’s personal dreams, anxieties and related influences, this website makes visible the seemingly endless paths and circuitous routes of influence and appropriation.
