Projects (founded Labels/Art-Groups)






UBERMORGEN.COM is an artist group created in Vienna, Austria in 1999 by Hans Bernhard (founder of etoy) and Lizvlx. Behind UBERMORGEN.COM we can find one of the most uncatchable identities - controversial and iconoclast - of the contemporary European techno-fineart avantgarde. ubermorgen is a German word for "the day after tomorrow" or "super-tomorrow". The permanent amalgamation of fact and fiction points toward an extremely expanded concept of one’s working materials, which for UBERMORGEN.COM also include international rights [Legal Art], democracy and global communication networks. French philosopher Jean Baudrillard once said about UBERMORGEN.COM: "ubermorgen means the day after tomorrow, a slight tip towards their aestehtic and activist vision and prejudice, they are hardcore and radical in their actions and they are extremely strange and highly intelligent people".

the etoy.CORPORATION is a controversial global player online since 1994. etoy uses the corporate structure to maximize cultural value: the final link in the value chain. for etoy the dramatic problems of globalization are not to be solved by simply rejecting global markets, economic exchange, drive companies, culture, individuals and politics.

by sharing risk, resources, maintaining a strong brand and maximizing the shareholder value, the etoy.CORPORATION seeks to explore social, cultural and financial value. etoy.SHAREHOLDERS invest time, knowledge, and ideas (or simply finance) etoy.OPERATIONS which focus on the overlap of entertainment, cultural, social and economic values. etoy.SHAREHOLDERS participate in a dynamic artwork that takes place 24 hours a day in the middle of society -- on and offline.

About GWEI – Google Will Eat Itself


We generate money by serving Google text advertisments on our Websites. With this money we automatically buy Google shares. We buy Google via their own advertisment!

By establishing this auto-cannibalistic model we deconstruct the new global advertisment mechanisms by rendering them into a surreal click-based economic model.


Selected Exhibitions

LISTE 05 Basel (Switzerland), Artissima Turin, FabioParisArtGallery Brescia (Italy)
18.2. - 29.2.2004


ART FID was created as a product in the tense field between fine art, new media art [net.art] and high tech. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is one of "THE" leading technologies of the future. As artists it is our intention to work on the edge of the technical revolution with low technology tools.

The RFID-chips appear as almost organic in form, as cellular in structure. This edition of three very similar but slightly different RFID-chips tells us a story of bio-technology and digital technology morphing visually into each other: The pixel is the molecule!

The piece consisted of 3 canvases and one computer projection with a yellow scrolltext [The Computer-Animation: Scrolltext/Lauftext*]. The Text was emailed to 12.000 Press, Art and Business contacts during ART 36 Basel. 

The installation was presented at LISTE 05 - Basel and at Artissima 12, The international fair of contemporary art in Turin and in a Solo-Exhibition at FabioParisArtGallery, Brescia /Italy.

"We are the children of the 1980s, We are the first internet-pop-generation. We grew up with radical Michael Milken [The King of Junk Bonds] and mythical Michael Jackson [The King of Junk Pop].

Hans Bernhard is loaded with 10 years of internet and tech [digital cocaine], underground techno, hardcore drugs and net.art jet set [etoy].

"Psych|OS – Generator and IPNIC-Seal"
Academy of fine Art Berlin (Germany
03.2. - 19.3.2006


Computer-Installation  (with  Digitalprint on Canvas, Unique copy, 210x210x6,5cm), 2006


The Psych|OS Generator creates medical prescriptions. The user can select a medical condition from the standardized WHO and U.S.A. list of mental illnesses (ICD-10 and DSM IV). The machine then generates a diagnosis and a prescription with the list of psychotropic drugs to cure the disease.


Background: The viennese artist duo UBERMORGEN.COM (Hans Bernhard and Lizvlx) are working on a series of [F]original* document Generators: The first one (No. 1) was the Injunction Generator, 2001 (www.ipnic.org), automatically generating court orders, the second (No. 2), the BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR, 2005 (www.ipnic.org/BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR) and now the third one (No. 3) is the Psych|OS-Generator, 2006.

"Amazon Noir Book Incubator"
Share Festival Turin, DEAF Rotterdam, MOCA Teipeh



Amazon Noir Book Incubator", 2006, 120x40x105cm, mixed media installation

Share, Torino (Italy)  and Laboral Gijon (Spain),  Photo by Alberto Bardelli aka ramblert, Torino, 2007


Amazon Noir can be seen in a tradition of conceptual art as well as performative arts in this case using any platform they can find from traditional mass media, the Internet, and the street. Looking at Copyrights and intellectual property issues on a global scale we are also facing tremendous unbalances in having access to knowledge and information as a basis for social, cultural and economic innovation. Alex Adriaansens
















etoy - "the digital hijack"

between march 31 and july 31 1996, etoy.SOFTWARE-AGENTS automatically infiltrated the world wide web's global search engines (lycos, infoseek, altavista, etc.) by placing over a thousand designated keywords (porsche, startrek, bondage, selbstmord, censorship, fassbinder, etc.) within the top 10 rankings, thereby setting up a trap for net travelers and technology tourists. with this action, etoy demonstrated the «space» behind the popular interfaces of the world wide web...


...they took control of the systematic illusion of net-quests for information. 

the weak points of the internet and the twilight zone of the medium formed the location of the action. search-servers were transformed into a stage: etoy.UNDERGROUND FEEDING THE INFO-SPIDERS ! 

the scene of the crime is open to the public and is still frequently visited by many inquisitive users



In 1996, with «The Digital Hijack» the group «etoy» introduced an aspect into Net art which was subsequently thematicized by numerous artists and which would become a popular discussion platform: the questioning of supposedly flat hierarchies by way of the specific infiltration of system-immanent conditionalities.


The staid problem of gaining authority not only arose for the information provider, the user, too, was also meant to become aware of his/her necessary media competence. At the time, the user's hijacking of him/herself was both a technical trick as well as a legal tightrope walk. In the end, the CIA became active as far as Austria; the Federal Ministry of Internal Security was called in (unnecessarily). After more than 600,000 hijackings, due to an overloaded server the «Hijack» was discontinued.











Voteauction was a Website which offered US citizens to sell their presidential vote to the highest bidder during the Presidential Elections 2000, Al Gore vs. G.W. Bush.


The Website was conceived by the student James Baumgartner and then sold to the austrian business-artists Hans Bernhard (founder of etoy [5]) and Lizvlx from UBERMORGEN.COM[1] in Austria and (V)ote-auction Inc. in Sofia/Bulgaria [a subsidiary of the UBERMORGEN.COM group] for a undisclosed sum. Voteauction was UBERMORGEN.COMs feature Media Hacking performance in the year 2000.


Several US States (Missouri, Wisconsin, Chicago, Arizona, Nevada, California, Massachusetts, New York) issued temporary restraining orders or injunctions for alleged illegal vote trading. This led to the shutdown of 2 domains (voteauction.com and vote-auction.com)[10]. Federal Attorney Janet Reno, the FBI and the NSA were investigating the case to ensure the integrity of the voting process on november 7th, 2000.


Over 2500 global and national News features in online media, print, television and radio have been reported (including a 27 min. CNN exclusive "Burden of Proof").


"[V]ote-Auction" is one of most risky and paradoxically successfull projects by UBERMORGEN.COM: it is "the only platform in the world that provide the final consumer an effective role in the American election industry". A true interchange system that finally "brings capitalism and democracy closer together“.





"Injunction Generator"




Injunction Generator, Ubermorgen's legal art: With their usual controversial and iconoclast spirit, Ubermorgen, an artist group created by Hans Bernhard (founder of etoy) and lizvlx, realized The Injunction Generator (www.ipnic.org), a software module which claims to generate on request legal injunctions and personalized documentation in .rtf/.pdf format to force a site into taking its contents offline. Carrying on with their principles of 'radical corporative marketing strategy' and the meta-concept of the [F]original – forged original document, the group has produced an effective and credible interface which helps creating one's own documented cease-and-desist request, which is also automatically sent to the DNS administrators, to the site's owner and to some journalists to trick them into supporting the 'public trial'. The project is published on the IP-NIC domain, an acronym which mimics the official protocols (Internet Protocol - Network Information Center), revisited as 'Internet Partnership for No Internet Content'. This sarcastic provocation (a 'public shutdown service') was conceived after experiencing a similar mishap for the [V]ote-auction project (www.vote-auction.net), which invited american citizens to put up their vote for auction. At the time (2000) an email injunction by an american court was sent to the swiss provider hosting the site, who took them immediately offline even though email documents aren't legally considered official and even though Swiss is outside of american jurisdiction.













BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR, Installation, Ars Electronica 2005


“Authenticity as consensual hallucination" 

„Just pixels on a screen, just ink on paper“


The "BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR" is an online engine that generates individual bank statements. If you need a positive or negative bank statement, generate it yourself! In doing so, the user is free to determine the amount and type of deposits and credits as well as the degree of design abstraction of the resulting document, an [F]original that manifests itself as an array of pixels on the monitor screen.


The core theme of this project is described in the slogan "just pixels on a screen - just ink on paper" and consolidated in the term "authenticity as consensual hallucination" (Inke Arns). The focus shifts from the authenticity in the time of analogue / technical reproduction (signature) towards authenticity in the time of informational reprogramability (automatically generated bank-statements).


In the UBERMORGEN.COM universe, this project can be seen in the tradition of "Legal Art" and specifically the "[F]originals - forged original documents - series. A Foriginal is always original and unique. Foriginals are pixels on screens or substance on material [i.e. ink on paper]. [F]originals are non pragmatic - they are absurd. They do not tell you whether they are real or forged - there is no original but also no fully forged / faked document. Foriginals can be human or machine generated; Foriginals are digital or analog, foriginals are singular multiples.




Psych|OS (Videoinstallation)

In March 2002, ubermorgens Hans Bernhard experienced a manic outbreak in South Africa. He was airlifted to Austria - General Hospital Vienna. Two and a half years later, UBERMORGEN found video footage of his stay at the Mental hospital. They decide to release the material unedited.

"We are the children of the 1980s, We are the first internet-pop-generation. We grew up with radical Michael Milken [The King of Junk Bonds] and mythical Michael Jackson [The King of Junk Pop].

Hans Bernhard is loaded with 10 years of internet and tech [digital cocaine], underground techno, hardcore drugs and net.art jet set [etoy]. His neuronal networks and brain structures are similar to the global synthetic network he maintained subversive activity within. And now both Hans Bernhard and The "Network" are infected by this structural disorder.


The Installation is a common projection, a sensitive membrane [the screen] which serves as a thin skin which is penetrated by light and onto which a unique reality is projected. This membrane moves if you touch it or it curls if you blow: the image twists. The membrane represents the human and the network - it is hypersensitive. The sound is played quietly via speakers and very fat via earphones. The room is bright with daylight so the mood of the viewer is influenced by the weather outside. There is no difference to a room in a mental hospital.

GWEI – Google Will Eat Itself
(Online, with Alessandro Ludovico and Paolo Cirio)



We generate money by serving Google text advertisments on a series of hidden web-sites. With this money we automatically buy Google shares. We buy Google via their own advertisment! Google eats itself - but in the end "we" own it! By establishing this auto-cannibalistic model we deconstruct the new global advertisment mechanisms by rendering them into a surreal click-based economic model. With the current speed, it will take approx. 202 Million  years until „we“ fully own Google Inc.

After this process we hand over the common ownership of "our" Google Shares to the GTTP Ltd. [Google To The People Public Company] which distributes them back to the users (clickers) / public.

Amazon Noir – The Big Book Crime
(Online, in collaboration with Paolo Cirio and Alessandro Ludovico)



THE PLOT: The Bad Guys (The Amazon Noir Crew: Cirio, Lizvlx, Ludovico, Bernhard) steal copyrighted books from Amazon.com - using sophisticated robot-perversion-technology coded by supervillain Paolo Cirio. A massive media fight and a brutal legal fight escalates into an online showdown with the heist at the center of the story. Lizvlx from UBERMORGEN.COM has daily shoot outs with the global massmedia, Ludovico and Bernhard hardly resist kickback-bribes from powerful Amazon.com and Cirio violently pushes the boundary of copyright (just pixels on a screen - just ink on paper). Betrayal, blasphemy and pessimism splits the gang of bad guys. In the end the good guys (Amazon.com) win and drive off into the blistering sun with the beautiful and seductive femme fatale (the massmedia).


THE TECHNOLOGY: The Amazon Noir Robots (Sucker01-12) used the frontdoor to access the huge digital library of Amazon.com. They tricked around with Amazon.coms "Search Inside the Book" function until it gave away the complete volumes of copyright protected books. This was carried out by sending 5.000 - 10.000 requests per book. After this process the data was logically reassembled into pdf-format . http://www.amazon-noir.com

The Sound of eBay
(Online, Net.Art, Installation)


Web Site Screenshot index.html, „The Sound of eBay“



First there was silence... Then there was data... But there was no story... Just images and sounds... Cities were built and a grid was laid on top of the topography


Within this global grid a company named eBay became the largest marketplace, with very local marketspaces. eBay is romantic and seductive, not like the local fleamarkets in Paris (Le marché aux puces de Saint-Ouen) but sexed up a million times bigger and spherically transcended, much more effective and thoroughly commercialized. We love it! "The Sound of eBay" is the affirmative high-end low-tech contribution to the atomic soundtrack of the new peer-to-peer hyper-catastrophic shock-capitalism. Forget the technology, its lustful entertainment, baby!


How does it really work? We generate unique songs by using eBay user-data. You simply enter any eBay username (your own or someone else's) and add your email address so we can notify you as soon as the song is ready for downloading. Then click „generate“ and our robots sprawl out into the net to collect data. Then the robots bring back the data to our sc3 supercollider soundgeneration-engine. Finally, the complex software-machine starts generating a score-file which is then transformed into your unique but uniform song and presented in teletext porn style! We sell out your human needs digitally...

In China there are many Online-Gaming Workshops that hire people to play online games such as World of Warcraft (WoW) day and night. The gaming workers produce in-game currency, equipments, and whole characters that are sold to American and European Gamers via Ebay. These people are called „Chinese Gold Farmers".
