"Prison of Love"  (carcel de amor)  http://www.carceldeamor.net
and its online part  "Violence without Bodies"  (violencia sin cuerpos)
the contemporary art show on the theme of gender violence,
continues touring through Spanish museums and stops between
12 July  and 28 July at Contemporary Art Centre Párraga, Murcia /Spain.

"Violence without bodies" includes also
Agricola de Cologne's interactive net play
Compressed Affair

Of particular relevance is the online part curated by Remedios Zafra, not only due to the focus on "violence on women", but basically because it represents one of a few examples, that net based art is recognized as an equal form of contemporary art working among all the existing traditional forms, a status which has net based art, not yet generally. So, this show has an emancipatory character in different concern und deserves particular attention, including net based works by Francesca da Rimini, Natalie Bookchin, Margot Lovejoy, Tina La Porta, Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries, Igor Stromejer etc, see also list further ahead.

their limits and energy expressing the changing and heterogenous relations

production, - is structured in 5 parts interrelating with each other. eg
a cycle of films and videos, an Internet based online part, conferences and
meetings and the edition and an action by Angélica Liddell.
