The Internet Yami-Ichi

Shut down your computer and join the second edition of The Internet Yami-Ichi in Linz!

The Internet Yami-Ichi, from the Japanese “Internet Black Market,” but also “sickness” and “addiction,” is a flea market where people consumed by the Internet can share and buy Internet- related things in real life. In this weird market, you can browse through the booths and find the amazing and the useless—in an ironic and humorous atmosphere reminiscent of the early Internet era.

The Internet Yami-Ichi was created by the Japanese art collective IDPW in 2012, and took place for the first time in Tokyo. Since then many editions have been organized in several cities like New York, Seoul, Moscow, Berlin and more.

Internet Yami-Ichi Linz 2019 is organized by Sofia Braga within the frame of Ars Electronica Festival 2019 with the support of Ars Electronica and Interface Cultures.
