global networking project

1: RRF Channel

RRF Channel – Memory Channel I – can be accessed via the central interface

The first channel is the basic channel dealing with individualized memory filtered through curators and curated artists from different countries around the globe. How deal artists from different cultural, social and political background with the fundamental questions of mankind.

The issues of Memory and identity belong to the essention questions of mankind, especially currently in the processes of globalization, a world without any boarders due to Internet and the new communicatiopn technologies.
The location of a person does not really matter any longer as long as he has the access to these technologies.
The crucial point is, while the highly technilogized Western cultures have this access and high speed Internet belongs to the livings standards already, has the majority of the world population no access to any technology, but has to fight each days for survival, hunger and thirst.

RRF Channel incorporates contribution of many curators from different regions on the globe and show via the selections how artists deal with the issues of “memory and identity”.
