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 is also the collective that created and runs this art space. It is currently composed of Chiara Giardi, Evita Verbrugge, Heiko Schmid and Ugo Pecoraio, four curators who are mostly based in Switzerland. KUNSTSURFER was founded in 2021 by the current members, together with Itay Blaish. The add-on was programmed and is technically supported by the artist Michael Aschauer.
KUNSTSURFER was funded by the city of Zurich (Creative Tech for Good), ZHdK Fonds/Mercator Foundation and the Taiwanese Ministry of Culture.
