Printing Out The Internet | Kenneth Goldsmith Julio 26 – Agosto 26, 2013.
Inauguración: viernes 26 de julio, 18 – 21 hrs.
Opening: Friday, July 26th. 18 – 21 hrs.

El 22 de mayo de 2013, Kenneth Goldsmith lanzó una convocatoria para imprimir la totalidad del internet. El resultado es Printing Out The Internet, una pieza de arte colaborativo que devino plataforma de discusión con apasionadas reacciones, tanto en contra como a favor del homenaje a Aaron Swartz que con esta acción el poeta buscó realizar.

La aparente imposibilidad del proyecto es solo un pretexto para Goldsmith, que propone en esta muestra ‘una solución imaginaria a un problema imaginario’, a la vez un comentario acerca del libre flujo de la información, tema que ha desarrollado en su obra literaria y cuya urgente discusión en la cultura contemporánea se reitera con el suicidio de Swartz.

Printing Out The Internet es un detonador, un escenario que le da la bienvenida a la controversia, a la contradicción y la poesía, un espacio que albergará discusiones, talleres, proyecciones y la lectura maratónica del internet durante un mes.


Durante la primera semana de Printing Out The Internet se llevará a cabo ALL of the films of People Like Us, muestra del trabajo de Vicki Bennett curada por Kenneth Goldsmith en el Centro de Cultura Digital el 27 y 28 de julio.

Kenneth Goldsmith (1961) es un poeta norteamericano, fundador y principal editor de UbuWeb. Es autor de Soliloquy (2001), Against Expression: An Anthology of Conceptual Writing (2011), Uncreative Writing: Managing Language in a Digital Age (2011) y más recientemente Seven American Deaths and Disasters (2013), entre otros. En 2013 se convirtió en el primer poeta laureado por el MoMA en Nueva York.

On May 22, 2013, Kenneth Goldsmith launched a call to print the entire internet. The result is Printing Out ​​The Internet, a collaborative art piece that became a platform for discussion with passionate reactions, both in favor and against the homage to Aaron Swartz that with this action the poet sought to make.

The apparent impossibility of the project is just an excuse for Goldsmith, who proposes in this exhibition ‘an imaginary solution to an imaginary problem’, as well as a commentary about the free flow of information, an issue he has developed in his writing and an urgent topic for discussion in contemporary culture that is reiterated by Swartz’s suicide.

Printing Out ​​The Internet is a detonator, an open stage that welcomes dispute, contradiction and poetry, a space that will house discussions, workshops, screenings and the marathon reading of the internet for a month.


During the first week of Printing Out ​​The Internet the exhibition ALL of the films of People Like Us, a solo show of Vicki Bennett‘s work curated by Kenneth Goldsmith will be held at the Centro de Cultura Digital on July 27th and 28th.
