This is an online exhibition space that focuses to develop a new wave of net art influenced by anti-capitalist and xenofeminist[1] thought. Founded in 2017 by Ana Meisel, External Pages experiments with web coding to question the placement of internet art in galleries, cheat curatorial hierarchies, and look at how websites can be appropriated as an emancipatory technology. Although the internet’s current state seems futile, exhaustive, and impenetrable, “from a situation in which nothing can happen, suddenly anything is possible again”[2].

While using the conceptual breadths of art practice to subvert web-based functionalities, this organisation codes all the content for the artists, who have full control over how the show is curated.

External Pages is editable, downloadable, open source/access, and post-cyberfeminist[3].
