The SPEED SHOW exhibition series was conceived by the artist Aram Bartholl in June 2010. The basic idea of this exhibition format is to create a gallery like opening situation for browser based internet art in a public cyber-cafe or internet-shop for one night. The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.
The text is an ancient communication protocol. Whether as part of artistic expressions, protests, criticism or for the lulz, the text is capable of creating a fictional world, criticism, literature or even a revolution. Speed Show Mexico presents expressions that have the use of text as their main characteristic, many of these are websites that incorporate either visual elements, codes, poetry, animations, video or are the result of hacking or leaking of confidential information.
Language as the most sophisticated technology.
