With the fax machine now fast becoming a technology of the past, how do artists see the potential of the fax transmission today?

For the first FAX exhibition, held at The Drawing Center in New York, 2009, Artists, architects, designers, scientists and filmmakers, spanning multiple generations, were invited to transmit works during the exhibition to a working fax machine in the gallery. FAX has since toured around the world, and every host institution has invited additional participants. The twentieth showing of FAX takes place at KARST, and a select group of new collaborators have been invited to take part. Faxes will be received in real time in the exhibition space, throughout the duration of the show, and will include drawings and texts, as well as inevitable junk faxes and errors of transmission. The artworks, reflecting ideas such as reproduction, distribution, communication and technological obsolescence, will be permanently added to the ever-accumulating project.
