Hacker Art

by Michael Mateas · , 10:06 am

Following on our discussion of code as art (Fear of Code), I came across an annoucment for the show Hackers: The Art of Abstraction currently on display at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain. The show emphasizes the connection between hacking and creative activity in any medium. The Wired News article links to an interesting Marxist description of hacking, A Hacker Manifesto by McKenzie Wark.
