    Abstract:
    Live video streaming as a technique became political with the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement. To see images in real time and without the mediation by journalists affected many people not because they shared the same space with the various protesters but the same time. In the last years, artists have started to adopt streaming as a technical and aesthetical format and in my paper I discuss in what regard this might be symptomatic and relevant for contemporary art. Streaming, as I argue, in this context is not so much an enabling technology but a concept of contemporaneity of image and beholder.
