Welcome!

This website documents the research project “Van Gogh TV. Erschließung, Multimedia-Dokumentation und Analyse ihres Nachlasses”, which was carried out from 2018 to 2021.
Van Gogh TV was a collective of hackers and artists who, with their “Piazza virtuale” project at documenta 1992, created a precursor to the interaction and collaboration that characterises the internet today.

This website contains excerpts from the programme of “Piazza virtuale”, interviews with those involved, documents, sources, texts and other materials that we found during our research or created ourselves.

The project is a cooperation between the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Prof. Dr. Jens Schroeter and PD Dr. Christoph Ernst) and the Institute for Media Design at the University of Applied Sciences Mainz (Prof. Anja Stöffler and Prof. Dr. Tilman Baumgärtel) and was funded by the German Research Foundation.
