 Critical Art Ensemble (CAE)

The Critical Art Ensemble is a collective of five artists with different background «exploring the intersections between art, technology, radical politics and critical theory» (cf. webssite). Besides their important publication «Electronic Civil Disobedience and other Unpopular Ideas» (New York, 1996), in which the concept of «electronic civil disobedience» is developed, the CAE has mainly realized projects in the field of bio tech and tactical media.
