Users' Club was exhibited
at Statens Museum for Kunst
(The danish National Gallery) during October 2001.
In 1925, Aleksandr Rodchenko
designed "Workers' Club" in conjunction with Exposition Internationale
des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris. "Workers'
Club" was a new, post-revolutionary reality - a public place which
could offer political enlightenment and debate, as well as a place, which
could provide renewed energy after a long working day - a place, which could
help maintain the revolutionary identity.
With reference to Rodchenko's
"Workers' Club", Artnode has created "Users' Club".
A public place for the freedom of speech. After the digital revolution a
new reality has been created for open communication; a great, indefinite
mouthpiece called the internet, where everyone has the opportunity to manifest
him or herself. A new, large, indefinable group, "Users" has come
to life in the society of networks.
