10 years after Arsdoom 1, concept and technology of the project were updated by Arsdoom 2. All the artists, who already participated in Arsdoom 1, are again part of the project. This time a digital model of the ZKM (Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) is the virtual exhibition space. A virtual world full of artists and their artwork. As in Arsdoom 1, we can find violent interactions between virtual visitors and artists, which take place in the digital surrounding of exhibits and installations. Arsdoom 2 is part of the permanent exhibition of the ZKM's "algorithmic revolution".
Both projects have in common:
The usage of the cultural technique computer game in the context of art.
They are virtual exhibitions of contemporary artwork.
The computer game is a cynical comment on the art world.
Both projects were assigned by Peter Weibel, director of the Ars Electronica festival and, today, director of the ZKM.
