Performative events in Second Life, by Tamiko Thiel and the United|Dislokations|Kartell.

Cyberspace: The Final Frontier. Since 1994 with the advent of the World Wide Web, online virtual 3D worlds have promised us endless freedom to be and do and create whatever we want, free of all restrictions. The most well-known of these, Second Life, promises us a newer and better virtual life, where we can live out our fantasies of who we want to be and what we want to do. As with all gated communities, however, membership comes with a stern set of rules regulating what can and cannot be done where and when and by whom.

During her tenure as Goethe-Institut Second Life artist in residence, Tamiko Thiel will host several performative events that explore the boundaries of what can and cannot be done in Second Life. The events will be in collaboration with the United|Dislokations|Kartell, a group of independent artists dedicated to disrupting the virtual order of things.
