#nfcdab is a DIY or DIWO? digital art biennale that travels on wireless
technologies, light waves and electromagnetic fields e.g.: Wi-Fi routers, QR
codes or NFC tags to access content. the idea of the biennale is to take
advantage of the potential of near-field (mis)communication and other
technologies for making web-based digital art accessible in outdoors
it slack-keeps presence next to the frameworks of galleries and

#nfcdab 2018 is a multi-centered, travelling biennale which will take place
Gol(NO), Warsaw, Wroclaw(PL), Amsterdam(NL), Valencia(ES), and possibly
Prague(CZ), Berlin (DE), Athens(GR) throughout 2018.

#nfcdab Gol is taking place from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th of May 2018. The
biennale uses public space as its platform for exhibition and events:

* PLANTER EXHIBITION of 50 works at Flekken park (map). Media: visual-,
web-, network-, essay-, performance-, installation-, descriptive-,
simulated-, dissimulated-, sound-, site-specific-, land-, phenomenological-,
game-, personal satelite radio system broadcast-, spam-, chatbot-, and other
arts. The digital works are accessed through QR codes on smartphone and

* ROAMING ACTIVITY by organizer and public consisting of an exploration of
wider surroundings as psychogeography, tagging, scanning, as
within the technological and social given.

* ALTERNATIVE MAPPING strategies of exhibition and roaming. Adding works and
findings into an essayistic, forking narrative as a sum-over-histories,
resisting the collapse of dimensionalities, empowering the virtual as human

obfuscation, and muddling of information, activating associative, lateral,
derailing storylines. a staging of events, not for common digestion all
(written on a box of canned silk worm pupaes). there should always be the
possibility that the biennale doesn't exist. it may be a practical joke or
simply a hallucinating of arcane references found in public spaces, toilet
walls, and bricked streets.

the character of the gol biennale is low-tech and low profile, even to the
degree of being 'bricked' (unresponsive) as a strategy against the spectacle
which is technology.

#nfcdab Gol is organized by noemata in collaboration with
podsiadly and browserbased.
