Le Musée di-visioniste
The New Museum of Networked Art is the marriage between Le Musée di-visioniste and NewMediArtProjectNetwork:cologne. While the latter was aimed to art creations and activities dedicated to new media, Le Musée di-visioniste was the manifestation of philosophical ideas based on holistic points of view having always the all encompassing “whole” in mind. So, the networking idea was placing Wilfried as an artist and curator as a “primus inter pares”, whereby the whole in terms of the “whole community” and the responsibility for the “whole” was standing in the foreground. The individual gets his real meaning only as a part of the whole – what is happening is standing in the context of the all encompassing “whole”.
In order to understand Wilfried’s work, this holistic or divisionistic point of view is essential, because from the beginning on 1 January 2000 the divers initiatives und the continuous launch of new projects and the general development depend on each other and take influence on each other. At the same time, when Wilfried started the feature series an Le Musée di-visioniste, he was working on the JavaMuseum shows, launched open calls for A Virtual Memorial, all that had a huge learning potential and simultaneously Wilfried is taking back life, Wilfried’s way was on an incredible fertile soil. It was a kind of “dreamtime”, which ended abruptly on 9/11 2001, but it was this desaster which afterwards will represent an enourmous motivation to continue what had started before the terror attack. The features at Le Musée di-visioniste were part of Wilfried’s initiative to overcome the heavy impact which the 9/11 terror had been causing on Wilfried’s heath.
