Ars Electronica 1986; first action of the Ponton Medien Bus (Containercity).
Planetary Network by Roy Ascott at the Venice Biennale.
Leos Carax tourne "Mauvais Sang".
Enki Bilal publie "La Femme Piège".
Douglas Davis: Ménage à Trois - live satellite and radio performance linking the Guggenheim Museum (New York), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), and the Venice Biennale.

April: A TV pirate known as Captain Midnight breaks into a cable television program.

I'm listening to Laibach (Nova Akropola), Slayer (Reign in Blood), Iron Maiden (Somewhere in Time), Coil (Horse Rotorvator), Kraftwerk (Electric Cafe)...
