PING IN PROGRESS

In 2001 Jan Brueggemeier was a core organiser and curator of ping in progress. It was a one-week media-festival dedicated to CRITICAL NET CULTURE and FREE MEDIA.

The lectures’, presentations’, workshops’ and arts’ focus was laid on streaming and networked media.

The Experimental Radio Department of the Bauhaus University Weimar and the webcast platform pingfm.org invited theorists, artists and activists to participate physically in this event.

Most of the program was broadcast live on the experimental radio of the Bauhaus University on 106.6 MHz.
