The book launch is organised in the frame of the exhibition Net Work, curated by Gretta Louw. This exhibition deals with work that is located at the intersection of performance and net art. The emerging genre of networked performance makes strong statements about the development of art history, and also about our relationship to technology and its impact on culture, society, labor and psychology.
