Łukasz Jastrubczak, Tutorial

Łukasz Jastrubczak’s video was an instructional movie on how to hack a blog and he has added his ideas to Maurice Benayoun’s concepts. The work was one of a few forms of revolt against the curator’s intentions. Has it proved the necessity of an artist to be an independent individual? For me it was more of a funny comment on the nowadays popular function of an artist-celebrity famous more for themselves than for their works, dreaming about fame for whatever it takes, which is frequent in the world of visual artists.

Unfortunately reality has exceeded the world of artistic fiction – the blog of Benayoun has been subjected to a hacker attack and was ahead of the concept of the Polish artist. The works by Jastrubczak may be thus interpreted as an enquiry about protection of the ideas published on the Internet, as they are exposed not only to interpretation attempts.
