!Mediengruppe Bitnik (read – the not mediengruppe bitnik) live and work in Zurich/London. They are contemporary artists working on and with the web. Their practice expands from the digital to affect physical spaces, often intentionally applying loss of control to challenge established structures and mechanisms. They try to make possible connections between the physical and the digital world and are not afraid of giving away power within their work.
Due to the happenings of the last days, it may be very worth to talk about a parcel !Mediengruppe Bitnik sent to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy. The parcel contained a camera which broadcast its journey through the postal system live on the internet. They describe «Delivery for Mr. Assange» as a SYSTEM_TEST and a Live Mail Art Piece. Let‘s talk about how those things could be used for theatres.
