Description The contribution develops an assumption that computers and the computer networks are the Golem of an Information Age. Therefore, examples of creative and critical explorations of the Information Society’s techno-logic are interpreted as re-enactments of the Golem legend. The focus is on artistic tactics that enable us to cross boundaries of ´technically possible´ (i. e. the limits of an utilitarian logic of the information society). The examples of artistic explorations of limits and virtualities of today's dominant technology, in forms of artistic viruses or glitch art, are interpreted as metaphors of an autonomy, disobedience, or dysfunction of the Golem/technology of today.
