This exhibition could not have been possible without the assistance and support from:
María Mencía who created a work specially for our exhibition, including Bremen in a journey around the world: Gateway to the World: Data Visualisation Poetics.
João Rui (a Jigsaw), who gave shape to what I had in mind. Together with Bremen’s university press (Uni-Druckerei Bremen), whose team was represented by Mr. Helmut Brammer, we were able to design all the materials shared with participants in the conference, and with visitors of the exhibition.
Anke Winsmann , who was patient enough to collect the Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Bremen requested books, later displayed at the exhibition. Thank you for being there and making sure that I had everything I need, from duck-tape to screen-cleaning spray. Also, I would like to thank your wonderful team for providing all the assistance during the exhibition.
Ulrich Achenbach who saved some old computers from oblivion and brought them to life for three days of fame and stardom. They looked perfect and shiny new to me. Thank you for making sure they were working before and during the exhibition.
Kai Schwedes and the Lernräume department (Zentrum für Multimedia in der Lehre (ZMML)). Thank you for providing the exhibition room.
Consortium on Electronic Literature (CELL) and its members. Thank you for allowing us to display the entries published in their databases. In this exhibition, works were introduced by resorting to entries published in the Digital Archive of Portuguese Experimental Literature Po.ex.net (Portugal), ELMCIP (Norway), Electronic Literature Lab (USA), Electronic Literature Directory, Nt2 (Canada), and I ♥ E-Poetry.

Ian Watson who, in representation of Literaturhaus Bremen, introduced me to the Globale Literature Festival and the Stadtbibliothek Bremen. He was unable to attend the conference for a very good reason: he was travelling to promote his book, Spielfelder: eine Fußballmigration (Edition Falkenberg, 2016).
