A browser add-on to replace advertisments with art for the KUNSTSURFER project (2022)
KUNSTSURFER is a browser-based art space. It runs on an add-on that recognises advertisements and replaces them with digital exhibitions. KUNSTSURFER brings art into your daily browsing. It plays with the ways online advertisements look and work. It takes over commercial space to host experimental, digital site-specific curatorial and artistic projects.
KUNSTSURFER was founded in 2021 by a collective composed of Chiara Giardi, Evita Verbrugge, Heiko Schmid, Itay Blaish and Ugo Pecoraio, five curators who are mostly based in Switzerland.
The add-on was programmed and is technically supported by the artist Michael Aschauer.
