"United We Stand," Dec. 10-23, 2005 & Jan. 3-21, 2006, at Postmasters Gallery, 459 W. 19th St., New York, N.Y. 10011
Just what is 0100101110101101.ORG? The group’s comically unwieldy name stands for the letter "K" in binary code, and the possible joke reference to the hero of Kafka’s The Trial ("K.") is perfectly appropriate –- the young artists behind the group, Italian-born Eva and Franco Mattes (both b. 1976), make performances and web art that plays on the inscrutable, Kafkaesque power of the corporate media.
