Issue 14 of frieze d/e looks back to the 1990s Net art scene in Berlin.

Don’t Believe the Hype: ‘YouTube should not replace dreams.’ In a rare interview, the artist and former club owner Daniel Pflumm talks about founding the legendary Elektro club and its pioneering TV channel, the linguistic pleasures of creating online domains and his continued efforts to take the Internet to absurd lengths.

Missing Links: Josephine Bosma and Stefan Heidenreich chart the rise of Net art and Berlin’s role in providing shared spaces for artists and activists: from the local collaborations of the early ’90s to the globalized encounters of a Post-Internet generation.

Also featured 
We enter the art world anxiety dreams of Amelie von Wulffen; we discover portholes to parallel realities in the stagecraft of artist collective FORT; and we unearth the ground-breaking films of Hans Richter, the Dadaist who collaborated with Marcel Duchamp and Sergei Eisenstein, among others.

More highlights 
Yngve Holen takes us through his unlikely experiments with 3D printing, which include scanning the nose of an Airbus A380 with a Wii console. Plus, actor and theatre director Herbert Fritsch reveals why he does not like working to scripts.
