A compelling visual survey of the work of Eva and Franco Mattes – internationally known as 0100101110101101.org
Eva and Franco Mattes are a couple of restless European (con-) artisits who use unconventional communications strategies to obtain high visibility with minimal effort. Over the last 10 years they have manipulated videogames, the internet, film, and street advertising to reveal truths concealed by contemporary society. They have created media facades convincing enough to elicit embarrassed responses from governments, the public and the art world and orchestrated unpredictable mass performances outside art spaces and involved unwitting audiences in scenarios that mingle truth and falsehood.
