_MON3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US @ M0US310n.net
happening and curation by Vasily Zaitsev
Online 2.0 happening & exhibition from M0US310n.net featuring Digital & Net.Art on the subject of Money & Error,
put together by an dead snipper as anonymous curator "Vasily Zaitsev":
With an unexpected and play-based proposal, the project is leaded and curated by the fake figure of a
World War II Russian sniper. MON3Y.us is conceived as a 2.0 happening that using a Facebook public event format,
invites people in general and digital artists in particular, to be part of an artistic game
in order to reflect on art and money as a way of social exchange beyond their exchange value.
Both, Art and Economy are constrained by social rules and laws that are broken by this ironic game
not only in an economical level but also within the Art system in order to deeply think about them.
By using happening as an artistic strategy in which it is possible to promote its potentiality for transforming social relationships,
a new point of view is stablished in order to re-configure artistic and economical conventions in our society
The theme of MONEY was chosen for its ubiquitous nature by an anonymous identity,
a online curator who used the name of a famous Russian sniper of World War II:
Vasily Zaitsev, a man that could not be seen and acted afar.
"M0N3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US" proposes to establish connections,
dialogues, and new insights into the contemporary art scene around
the general topic of MONEY. Around 70 international artists selected with various aesthetic
and conceptual approaches who work in fields such as Digital Art, Net.Art , New Media, Interactive Art ,
"M0N3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US" has a display format that promote aesthetic
reception of the digital work ,to understand it as a fundamental part of the work.
