An immersive performance of live websurfing and speeches 

More than 15 years after the beginnings of net art, the Internet has become the most ubiquitous participative global media of the 21st century; a huge territory between normalisation, commerce, hope and utopia. Is the Internet a disenchanted space for artists and creative people or is there a future for online arts and critical creative actions? If so, what are their possible forms and directions?

This is what WJ-Spots Brussels proposes to investigate by gathering an international panel of some of the most influential net artists, theorists, online activists and digital cultures thinkers who will share their views on the past and future of artistic creation on the Internet.

The format of this event will be far away from a usual conference : during the speeches, webjays using the WJ-Spots platform will be surfing live through a list of representative websites selected by the speaker. A multi-screen system is used to display those pages around the audience.

The proceedings of the WJ-Spots Brussels event will be published in early 2012 as a special edition of the MCD magazine (, and as video documents made available on the Digitalarti ( and iMAL ( websites.
