Description

Cosmos Carl – Platform Parasite is an online platform that hosts nothing but links provided by artists, writers, thinkers and curators. Be it encrypted, inside an archive, available through open source software, live-streamed, downloadable, in a webshop, on the dark web, or on streetview, the CC work, although on public display, is directly accessible through the hyperlinks displayed on the website.

CC encourages artists to reclaim (commercial) online platforms to produce and display their art. This means that the work is displayed on a website that is neither designed nor hosted by the artist.

The fact that the work is made on an existing online platform implies that visitors may stumble upon it, not necessarily viewing it as art.
