Seasons of Media Arts. Stadt der partizipativen Visionen
ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien

Light installations, media projections on building facades and streets, artistic interventions, and experimental events will transform Karlsruhe during the »Seasons of Media Arts« into a stage for innovative, cooperative, and networked media art. Since September 11, 2020, a variety of media-based artistic projects has been on show in the urban space of Karlsruhe. These projects, accompanied by special programs designed by various institutions and initiatives in Karlsruhe, invite the public to interact and explore our information- and media technology-based reality.  Here, »media« are understood literally as expressive tools that open up artistic access to current issues such as the climate crisis or democracy in the age of social media.

Mind Over Matter

11. December 2020 – 15. March 2021
Group Show, Technische Sammlungen Dresden, Dresden

MIND OVER MATTER, eine englische Redewendung, die mit der deutschen Volksweisheit DER WILLE VERSETZT BERGE verglichen werden kann.

Die Redewendung wird ebenso in der Parapsychologie für die Beschreibung von paranormalen Phänomenen, wie z.B. der Psychokinese verwendet. Es sollen im Rahmen der Ausstellung und des Vortragsprogramms vor allem Fragen der Bewusstseinsforschung, des Machine Learning und der Struktur des Selbst und Selbsterlebens nachgegangen werden. Seit jeher werden diese Fragen im Rahmen von Science-Fiction Literatur, aktuellen Filmreihen wie Matrix oder Westworld in Zukunftssettings projiziert, die mittels fortschrittlicher Technologie die Frage zu lösen versuchen, wie sich Geist und Bewusstseinsphänomene innerhalb von komplexen Materieansammlungen, die aus kleinsten, atomaren Bestandteilen zusammengefügt sind, entwickeln und manifestieren
kann. Diese aktuellen philosophischen Fragen, die sich anhand unserer technischen Errungenschaften in Hinblick auf elektronische Datenverarbeitung und umfassende Massenkommunikation mit neuer Vehemenz stellen, sind aber bereits seit Jahrhunderten auch in unseren Breiten im Zentrum der philosophischen Spekulationen, angefangen beim Bewusstseins- und Gottesbegriff von Rene Descartes und Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz im 17. Jahrhundert. Es werden unterschiedliche philosophische Grundfragen nach der Struktur des Seins, der Materie und der Zeit aufgeworfen, die mittels technologischer und künstlerischer Versuchsanordnungen erforscht werden.

Die Frage nach der Natur unseres Bewusstseins, und wie es möglich ist, dass es in unserem Universum existiert und es erlebt, ist wohl das faszinierendste Rätsel, mit dem wir konfrontiert sind. Das Forschungsgebiet der Künstlichen Intelligenz (KI) wurde nicht zuletzt ins Leben gerufen, um darauf eine Antwort zu finden. Die Medienkunst bezieht sich seit ihren Anfängen auf die Erforschungen dieses Verhältnisses von Mensch, Technologie und Bewusstsein, unter Zuhilfenahme technologischer und künstlerischer Modelle und technischer Hilfsmittel. In dem Versuch, auf Computern die kognitiven Prozesse des Menschen zu realisieren, entwickeln wir ein testbares Verständnis und Begriffe davon, wie elementare Informationsverarbeitungsprozesse zu komplexem Erleben führen, es handelt sich um nicht weniger als dem Versuch einer Theory of Everything , mittels der Spiegelung und Überführung in ein maschinell-abstraktes Informationsverarbeitungssystem, welches aber nach dem Vorbild der menschlichen Informationsverarbeitung modelliert wurde.

Was unterscheidet heutige KI-Systeme vom menschlichen Geist? Die heutigen Anwendungen der KI konzentrieren sich vor allem auf die Klassifikation von Daten und die Steuerung technischer Systeme. Unser Geist ist jedoch mehr als ein Klassifikator: er erschafft aktiv ein dynamisches Modell der Umwelt, einen Traum, der in den sensorischen Daten verankert ist, und den er erlebt und reflektiert. Künstlerische Arbeiten, die diese Modellierung in technischer wie humanistischer Hinsicht exerzieren und reflektieren sollen vorgestellt und diskutiert werden, dabei sind lokale, nationale und internationale Beiträge eingeladen.

Imagine you Wake Up and There is no Internet

22. October – 16. November 2020
Group Show, Romantso, Athens

What will happen if one day you wake up and there is no Internet?

The exhibition Imagine you wake up and there is no Internet explores the effects of ubiquitous connectivity and technology in everyday life. Starting from our obsession with digital technologies, the exhibition seeks to enhance the debate about the coexistence of human and machine in the 21st century.

13 artists and 5 art collectives showcase scenarios from the present time and the near future, strategies of disconnection and disorientation, evacuation and escape plans from the city, studies on the information society, snapshots from digital life and the infrastructures that allows us to be connected to the network, and new readings for the political period we are going through. Any sense of certainty for the present and the future seems to have been destabilised.

31 years after the creation of the world wide web, concepts such as space, time, value and labor have acquired new meaning. And these concepts will continue to take on new meaning as the technology that we use the most, changes at great speed leaving us -often- in the position of the observer with little space for manoeuvring. The levels of control and surveillance in the networks we navigate, whether resulting from political decisions or market trends, are often obscure. At the same time, everyday life and personal data have acquired a particular economic value within networks and our obsession with constant connectivity, can only accelerate a technological future where human behaviour becomes predictable or can be predicted to meet political or/and economic trends.

The works in the exhibition highlight moments and fragments of our digital life surfacing issues related to the human-machine relationship and its impact on the public sphere. The exhibition aims at contributing to the discussion on the constantly accelerating dynamics of the Network, our position within it, and finally, the boundaries between a human-driven versus a machine-driven technological world.

The exhibition presents new commissions and works from: Marina Gioti, Vaggelis Deligiorgis, Antonis Kalagkatsis, George Moraitis, Manos Saklas, Alexandros Tzannis, Jono Boyle and the new version of the work “Tracing Information Society – A Timeline” by Technopolitics group.

Participating Artists:
!Mediengruppe Bitnik & Low Jack (DE/FR), Aram Bartholl (DE), Jono Boyle (UK), Heath Bunting & Kayle Brandon (UK), Vaggelis Deligiorgis (GR), Exonemo (JP), Marina Gioti (GR), Antonis Kalagkatsis (GR), George Moraitis (GR), No Más / No More (GR), Manos Saklas (GR), Molly Soda (U.S.), Superflux (UK), Technopolitics (AT), Alexandros Tzannis (GR), Filipe Vilas-Boas (PT)

Opencoil

16. October – 1. November 2020
Group Show, Berlin, Berlin

you are hereby invited to the opening of OPENCOIL.show

with most cities pavements flooded by ‘dockless sharing vehicles’, OPENCOIL presents works by 10 artists specially selected to fill the vacuum between private and public space. this show is an experimental attempt to physically engage with the rise of ‘landfill capitalism’ by reclaiming ‘micro-mobility’ infrastructure. decentralised and climate neutral. helmets not included.

concept & curated by Dennis de Bel & Anton Jehle

participating artists: Aram Bartholl, Constant Dullart, Dennis de Bel & Anton Jehle, JODI, Jonas Lund, Martin Howse, Mediengruppe Bitnik!, Rosa Menkman, Sarah Grant, Sofya Aleynikova

opening:
oct 16th, 7pm / zentrum f netzkunst, haus der statistik

showcase:

roaming speedshow:
oct 26th – nov 1st / berlin

 

german:

OPENCOIL – The roaming Speedshow

Die Ausstellung OPENCOIL setzt sich mit den Auswirkungen von Mikro-Mobilitätsdiensten auf den Stadtraum auseinander, indem sie ihre dezentrale Infrastruktur als Ausstellungsraum nutzt und gleichzeitig die Bedingungen und Auswirkungen dieser Infrastrukturen auch zum Thema macht.

10 Künstler*innen wurden eingeladen, ihre Arbeiten auf einem kleinen Wifi Controller mit ~2MB Offline-Speicher zu präsentieren.

Diese „digitalen Galerieräume“ werden an 10 zufällig ausgewählten E-Scootern angebracht.
So fährt die Ausstellung, von den Nutzer*Innen der Roller unbemerkt, als „roaming Speedshow“ durch die Stadt.

Der aktuelle Standort der Kunstwerke kann ab dem 26 Oktober über diese Website verfolgt werden. Damit die Werke betrachtet werden können, muss die „Roller-Galerie“ im Stadtraum gefunden werden.

Sobald der Roller angemietet ist, erhalten die Besucher*innen über ihr persönliches Smartphone, Zugang zu dem 2MB großen Galerieraum und den ausgestellten Werken.

Während Kapazitätsbeschränkungen und die bevorzugte Vermeidung von Zusammenkünften in geschlossenen Räumen, traditionelle Galerien und Museen vor Herausforderungen stellen, zielt OPENCOIL darauf ab, die Ortsunabhängigkeit des Online mit der Materialität des Offline (und umgekehrt) zu verbinden. Die Infrastruktur der „Mikro-Mobiltitätsdienste“ wird übernommen – klimaneutral und dezentral.

Die Gehwege vieler Städte auf der ganzen Welt wurden in den letzten Jahren von sogenannten ‘dockless sharing vehicles’ regelrecht überflutet. Mit Versprechungen von Umweltfreundlichkeit und Elektromobilität, besetzten diese Risikokapitalismus Aktivisten die Grauzone zwischen privatem und öffentlichem Raum auf den Straßen unserer Städte. Diese gewissenlose Gewissenhaftigkeit der “Mikro-Mobilitätsdienste” wirft jedoch wichtige Fragen zu städtischem Raum, Eigentum, Agentur, Produktion, Ökologie und sehr spätem Kapitalismus auf.

Wie umgehen mit der Inbesitznahme öffentlichen Raums?
Welche Werkzeuge und Wege gibt es sich diesen zurückzuerobern?

OPENCOIL soll nicht nur ein Pandemie-tauglicher Weg sein, um Kunst im öffentlichen Offline-Raum zu zeigen. OPENCOIL ist auch eine kreative (Um-)Nutzung von E-Scootern, ein Versuch, sich ihnen mit künstlerischen Mitteln zu nähern.
Gezeigt werden Arbeiten, die sich mit Fragen der Überschneidung von öffentlichem und privatem Raum, dem Umgang mit Ressourcen sowie mit Greenwashing, Risikokapitalismus und Vandalismus befassen.

Youth & Art
Künstlerhaus,  Vienna
15. Juni – 7. October 2012
The exhibition at Künstlerhaus k/haus highlights the life worlds and creative productions of various youth cultures as reflected in international contemporary art.
“MEGACOOL 4.0 – Youth and Art” presents photographs, interactive installations, video art, paintings, street art and sculptures made by visual artists (incl. Erwin Olaf (Vermeer award laureate 2011), Charlie White, Rinneke Dijkstra and Slinkachu) from across Europe, Russia, China and the USA. The exhibition is supplemented by objects and everyday items from Jugendkulturarchiv Frankfurt and a focus on young art from Vienna (incl. an installation developed by wienxtra-medienzentrum in collaboration with youngsters).
“MEGACOOL 4.0” presents fundamentally different types of youths: normal ones, assimilated hipsters, altar servers, drag kings, fat ones, thin ones, twins, celebrities, goths, hiphops, metalheads, ravers, cosplayers, avatars, aggressive girls. From installations such as “Mindless living” by LA Raeven and “Pitbull” by Martin Brand, Cao Fei’s “Cosplayer”, Andreas Gursky’s “Mayday I”, Michael Schmellings Serie “Atlanta HipHop” to Nan Goldin’s “Jimmy Paulette after the Parade”. The exhibits takes visitors on a visual foray through young people’s picturescapes and theme areas such as online cultures, light / dark, body and gender performances as well as their choreographies, fashion, games, sport and party. In addition to the fundamental questions in young people’s identity search, the creative minds of a generation are invited to take centre stage, those who use Web 2.0 platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, flickr, deviantart or animexx as a source of inspiration for aesthetic-creative experiments, explore creative freedom and produce new forms of art. “MEGACOOL 4.0” shows fundamentally different takes on “youth”, their movements, their poses, their objects and their fashion.

Magnotta Speedshow  – A vanity surf performance at
Internetcafe Helin, Karl-Marx-Straße 156, Berlin g-maps
8-10 pm, Tuesday 12th of June,  2012

Killing is bad, mailing bodyparts is worse, vanity surfing (while getting caught) is cool!

One week after Magnotta got caught we present a vanity surf performance at the exact same Internetcafe in Berlin where Magnotta was arrested while vanity surfing! Be invited to join and vanity surf yourself!

Color Study

June 4, 2012


(by unknown (kids), found at Gerichtstr.23, Berlin)

BAL

June 4, 2012
 Article by Max Schreier, photos by Chloé Richard in Berlin; Saturday, June 2, 2012

Aram Bartholl is a tech artist who makes objects by capturing electronic moments, developing them into classical forms, and using the most analog processes to create digital forms. His work falls into the avant garde not by its innovative methods, but rather by its means of handling the often difficult-to-tame medium of the Web. When I visited Bartholl in his studio he humbly downplayed how innovative his work is, choosing instead to discuss the more abstract ideas that inform his process. For Bartholl the duality of analog and digital is a false exclusivity; his art is digital in its concepts but analog in its presentation, an execution that sets him apart from many of his peers in the tech art world.

Bartholl moved to Berlin in 1995 to earn a degree in the architecture department of the UdK. After his initial two years of study he found himself more excited by the T1 connection in the computer lab than the plotters in the architecture studios. Unlike many of the programmers who were discussing the newfound wealth of information and visual possibilities of writing code to develop art, Bartholl was primarily interested in the front end of the Internet; the user experience with, and the presentation of, the aesthetic of the web. Instead of designing websites and becoming a student of online presentation, Bartholl started to observe the visual trends of the web and to interpret these tropes into handmade art works.

The openness of the Internet is integral to the physicality as well as the philosophy of Bartholl’s work. He posts detailed instructions for the recreation of his works online, and some of his works are the instructional videos themselves. While many of Aram’s works question where the inherent value of an artworks lies, that is not the primary intention of his creations. Posting the intricacies of the work to the Internet is “obvious” to Bartholl; the fact that his work exists in three dimensions and in space, does not preclude it from also having the interactive and open elements that are intrinsic to the web. Just as an artwork posted on YouTube is viewed thousands of times, a physical work of Bartholl’s also has the same accessibility. It is this well-established openness along with the content that sets him apart as such a unique web artist.

The ubiquitous conversation of how the Internet decreases our attention spans and thoughtfulness is universally accepted and derided, while at the same time we all participate in this perceived decline. Bartholl sees this haste as opportunity, creating Speed Projects — time restricted art events, self-monitored and self-approved — that are assigned their artistic merit by their completion and often uploading to the web. Bartholl calls these small works “freeing”, as he also considers the brevity of online media. Often he will work months on a work that is only appreciated for a second on the web before it is clicked through, and steadily decreases in viral significance because it is no longer new. The response is Speed Projects, some of which pick up Internet steam and find themselves trending on various forms of social and real media, and others that fall away as quickly as they were made.
Aram Bartholl is showing his work Online Gallery Playset at the group show, 404 Not Found, opening on Friday, June 8 at Berlin project space, Sur la Montagne.
