Nadia schmidle. Hosted. With Galleries Closed, a Moment for Net Artists to Shine. LONDON — In early March, the artist Olia Lialina was installing a solo retrospective at the Arebyte gallery in East London, feeling anxious about whether anyone would be able to attend: Italy had already announced quarantine measures and other European countries looked likely to follow.
Sure enough, by the time of the opening a few weeks later, Britain was in lockdown. She had to make the event online-only. The story will be familiar to artists, musicians and performers whose work has been interrupted, or simply obliterated, by the pandemic. Best Effort Network. Gallery — Best Effort Network.

In the exhibition space, beside the usual computer with an inscription on the wall and an open browser, a chair is put down, and on that chair—oh, isn’t that great—sits the FNA in person. Best Effort Network. War. Last Real Net Art Museum. My Boyfriend Came Back From The War. online since 1996. Russian artist Olia Lialina's "My Boyfriend Came Back From The War" (MBCBFTW) is a key work of 1990s artistic practice on the web, marking its 20th anniversary in 2016.
It has a pioneering character, as an interactive narrative and a work of net art. MBCBFTW presents two people who are trying to talk to each other about a war, after the fact. "My Boyfriend Came Back From the War" is a unique case and a fascinating example of a work that has inspired artists for 20 years; they cite it time and again, they focus on it or reinterpret it through remixing. Lialina has collected these works in her private archive under the title Last Real Net Art Museum. So far she has gathered 27 versions, 13 of which she has chosen for the HeK exhibition. A publication linked to the exhibition will present both the works themselves and key essays on the development of Internet culture.

In a 2006 interview with Valeska Buehrer, artist Olia Lialina observed that her early web-based works, particularly My Boyfriend Came Back from the War, have been irrevocably changed by the accelerating speed of the internet. Though the work is still as it was: same files, same address, links -- it is now more like a documentation of itself. Because everything else changed. Sometimes a GIF Is All You Need.
Today and yesterday were glorious days in New York: August had come, the sun was shining, the weather was just right.
They were the type of days that make you want to frolic, or skip or swing. And so it happened, when I clicked on a link in a tweet by pioneering net artist and critic Olia Lialina, that I saw her swinging joyfully towards me in my browser. This, I thought, is the perfect expression of summer. Lialina’s piece “Summer” is a GIF, and at first glance, a fairly simple one: it features an image of the artist swinging to and fro against a blank background that bleeds from bright blue to white.

Thank you for hosting me. Today I’m talking as the Geocities Institute’s Head of Research, an advocate for computer users’ rights, and interface design teacher. I’m making web pages since 1995, since 2000 I’m collecting old web pages, since 2004 I’m writing about native web culture (digital folklore) and the significance of personal home pages for the web’s growth, personal growth and development of HCI. So I remember very well the moment when Tim O’Reilly promoted the term Web 2.0 and announced that the time of Rich User Experience has begun. This buzzword was based on Rich Internet Applications, coined by Macromedia, that literally meant their Flash product. Notes on Being Net Artist.
