Internet Yami-Ichi (Japanese trad.: Internet Black Market) is a free to attend market where people meet to sell or exchange things related to the Internet. Half market and cabinet of curiosities, half meeting of superusers, designers, programmers, local and international artists, the Yami-Ichi is an open and fun space where ideas, images, absurd inventions and everyday objects are trafficked from the most imaginative, insidious and invisible areas of the web.
The first Internet Yami-Ichi was organized in Tokyo in 2012 by the artistic duo Exonemo and its mysterious online art collective IDPW “a secret society on the Internet that goes back more than 100 years” since then has traveled to numerous cities, including New York, Berlin, Barcelona, Moscow, Amsterdam and Seoul, among others. The second edition in Madrid comes from the hand of Tentacular in collaboration with Julián Pérez and Mario Santamaría.
Among the items that have been sold in previous Yami-Ichis we can find: forbidden links, Spotify advertising tapes, a rehabilitation clinic for Internet addicts, advice for writing hate e-mails, user passwords, snowballs “Edward Snowden”, apps rejected by Apple, Likes at 1 € and all kinds of meme artifacts and objects that deal with Internet culture.
