Internet Yami-Ichi - Open Call

Shut down your computer and join the third edition of Internet Yami-Ichi in Linz on Saturday, September 12th from 12.00 to 19.00 at Kunstuniversität Linz in the frame of Ars Electronica Festival 2020.

What is Internet Yami-Ichi?
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 art collective IDPW, "a secret society on the Internet that goes back more than 100 years", and took place for the first time in Tokyo, in 2012. Since then many editions have been organized in several cities including New York, Seoul, Moscow, Madrid, Berlin and more.

Who can participate?
Everyone with brilliant ideas in materializing Internet goods and services can take part in this market. Vendors from previous editions sold rejected iOS apps, personal data in USB drives, meme-cookies, glitched embroidery on clothes, spam mail, computer generated cocktails, and many other unexpected things.
