Who is Mouchette?

Mouchette.org is an interactive website created in 1996 by a pseudonymous character, an Amsterdam-based artis who calls herself “Mouchette“. With her innocent salutation and claims to be “nearly thirteen” greeting us from the introduction page, what initially appears as a personal website of a pre-pubescent female artist, evolves into darker themes in the subsequent pages.(…) The creator of the website has been closely guarded secret. While the use of taboo subject matters are what initially “provokes heated reactions”, the manipulation of cyber identity and the ability of the creator to maintain anonymity for so long are the significant reasons this website has garnered its “international reputation” in the Internet Art community.. “– description by Wikipedia

Awesome? Disturbing? Mysterious? Interesting? This website was the subject matter of exhibitions at MoCA Gemany and the Pompidou, covered in Art Forum among other things.

If you haven’t seen this, then you should take a look, it’s amazing and mysterious!
