“…How the idea of the constituted western subject is breaking down under concerted network attack — we are
linked to others, our works are not separate from the others, all cultural production is inherently co-operative and now, for the first time in four hundred years or so, that is becoming clear again…” – Jamie King Jamie will also present London based MUTE Magazine www.metamute.com. The Mute magazine was founded in 1994 to discuss the interrelationship of art and new technologies. Together with the web platform Metamute, it now contributes more broadly to debates on culture, politics, and globalization. In 2001, Mute initiated sister projects OpenMute and YouAreHere to share the internet tools and knowledge associated with its development (OpenMute), and to support local networking initiatives in the East End of London (YouAreHere). At this point, Mute also committed itself over the long term to a participative working model, the principles of open organizations, and free software.
