Post-Internet Videospiele, Rap und Comics sind die Welt der Künstlerin Lena NW, die sich selbst als feminist nihilist bezeichnet. NWs hypersexuelle Kunst beschäftigt sich mit Kommerzialisierung, Macht und Selbstermächtigung im Internetzeitalter.
V/IRL kombiniert Methoden des traditionellen Dokumentarfilms mit virtuellem Surrealismus und untersucht somit nicht nur NWs Werk, sondern auch die Techniken zeitgenössischer, transdisziplinärer Kunst.

Self-proclaimed feminist nihilist Lena NW creates post-internet video games, rap, and comics. NW’s hypersexual art engages the complex relationship between commodification, domination, and self-empowerment in the internet age. Combining traditional documentary and virtual surrealism, V/IRL explores not only the artist’s themes, but also the formal techniques of contemporary, transdisciplinary art.

Malia Bruker is a filmmaker, media artist, and Assistant Professor of Digital Media Production at Florida State University.
