The Glass Room

18. January – 26. November 2022
Group Show, MOD, Adelaide

The Glass Room MOD
The Glass Room is a public intervention that aims to educate about technology. With a sleek tech shop vibe, visitors can freely and critically discuss their relationships with data privacy.

Having toured Europe and the US, it will be visiting Australia for the first time in 2022.

From the tech boom to tech backlash, our understanding of the digital has become both deeply personal and deeply political. Our desire for convenience has given way to questions about the trade-offs for how much we can control our data and our understanding about how it is used.

The Glass Room is a place to explore these ideas. The objects here bring to life the hidden aspects of everyday technologies and examine how they are changing the way we live. The objects in The Glass Room provide unconventional and unexpected ways of seeing your relationship with your data.

As technology becomes embedded in every part of our lives, The Glass Room helps you look deeper into the digital: Does your personal data say everything about you, or is it an imperfect portrait? Do more tools, apps, and information make us better and more efficient, or are we giving away more than we want in return? What goes on behind the screens and inside the black boxes of the devices we interact with everyday? If we knew, would we still sign in or click ‘I agree’? How much trust do users invest in big tech companies, and what can be done if that trust is broken? If you want to learn more, you can visit our Data Detox Bar to pick up our Data Detox Kit, which offers you simple tips to enhance your digital privacy, security, and wellbeing.

Upcoming Events

On Equal Terms

15. – 25. September 2022
Group Show, Uferhallen, Berlin

From September 15 to 25, the Uferhallen will present the group exhibition On Equal Terms.

A large majority of Berlin-based artists are trying to resist the eco‐ nomic displacement of spaces for artistic experimentation. However, their language is sometimes forced to conform to a similar logic, as workplaces and artistic networks are labelled as “creative hubs” and “cultural capital.” In the struggle against the gentrification of spaces for living and working, these same spaces necessarily become subject to the cultural economy’s valorization process. What is the price to pay for entering the political bidding war for space? What is the relationship between cultural and monetary capital? Are both sides of the conversation on equal terms?

The group show examines, among other things, how art deals with mechanisms of the partly voluntary, partly forced commodification of cultural and artistic values. The exhibition will showcase works by approximately 25 artists from Uferhallen

Kontaktzonen umkämpfter und geteilter Geschichte

Gegenwärtig sind wir mit einer rechten Metapolitik konfrontiert, die mit kulturellen Setzungen versucht zivilgesellschaftliche Überzeugungen und kulturelle Diskurse jenseits von Parlamenten nach eigenen Vorstellungen zu verändern. Während das Konzept der Metapolitik eigentlich für den Aufbau einer demokratischen Zivilgesellschaft gedacht war, zielt die Neue Rechte darauf ab, gesellschaftliche Komplexität auf essentialistische Vorstellungen von Kultur, Nation und Volk zu reduzieren. Mit Rekonstruktionen historischer Architektur, ideologischer Inanspruchnahme von Orten, aber auch Angriffen auf Parlamente versucht sie abgeschlossene Identitäten zu konstruieren. Im Ringen um die kulturelle Hegemonie entwendet die Neue Rechte auch den Künsten ihre Strategien, mit denen zuvor noch für eine offene und vielfältige Gesellschaft eingetreten wurde. Sie richtet die performativen Methoden nun gegen die vielfältige Kultur selbst. Dafür dreht sie das kritische Potential der Künste in eine affirmative Symbolhaftigkeit um und verwendet das progressive Moment der Künste für ihre regressiven Ideen.

Obwohl die permanente Gefahr besteht, die entwickelten künstlerischen Praxen in den Händen von Personen mit autoritären und völkischen Vorstellungen wiederzufinden, besteht nach wie vor die Notwendigkeit mit Kunst Ideen davon zu entwickeln, wie wir als Gesellschaft gerne zusammenleben wollen. Metapolitisches Hüpfen bietet den Anlass, rechte Metapolitik zu diskutieren und schafft zugleich den Raum, um Gegenstrategien zu entwickeln. Um die Frage nach dem Umgang mit symbolischen Räumen so zuzuspitzen, dass sie sichtbar und diskutierbar wird, wird das Hambacher Schloss als Symbol für Demokratie aber auch nationalistische Vereinnahmung in eine antifaschistische Hüpfburg transformiert. Die Architektur wird zur Infrastruktur für ein eintägiges Symposium im öffentlichen Raum, das Widersprüchlichkeit zulässt und auf dem nicht nur theoretisch, sondern auch praktisch und performativ Strategien gegen rechte Metapolitik entwickelt, erprobt und debattiert werden.

Video des Monats

1. – 31. May 2022
Solo Show, HMKV, Dortmund

In the series HMKV Video of the Month, HMKV presents in monthly rotation current video works by international artists – selected by Inke Arns”

“TOP25”, 2018, video, 5:44 min

TOP25 is a series of short 3D animation sequences featuring the 25 most used passwords in the world. Standard, easy-to-guess passwords like ‘123456’ or ‘admin’—frequently the default preset passwords for routers and other devices in the past—still pose a significant security threat to computer systems in general. This collection of well-known passwords is presented in a style of 3D animation often used for YouTube intros. It is very common practice among YouTubers to use short and very to-the-point 3D animations of their logo and name to introduce their channels, and a whole scene of young YouTubers exchange and share the 3D source files (Blender 3D) online to help new channel producers generate their own intros. Though the animations are remixed and altered, the general aesthetics follow a very clear visual concept. All sequences in this video are original designs and arrangements by different creators; the text has been altered to match the top 25 passwords.

Zukunftsbilder von Malewitsch bis Fujimoto

People have been dealing with concepts and visions for shaping the world of tomorrow since time immemorial. How do we want to live? What kind of housing do we want to live in? How do we want to work? Our society is influenced by visions of the future, in particular those put forward by artists, architects, and scientists. And yet our present is always the future of yesterday, because many of these ideas remain visions, others have been brought to fruition. The exhibition How to Live? Visions of the Future Yesterday and Today at the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum presents designs for the future from the areas of art, architecture and design ranging from the Russian avant-garde to our current digital era, and plots a multifaceted history of the future.

'Shadow Dance' at KAdE

September 14, 2010


I am showing the piece ‘0,16‘ at the museum KAdE Amersfoort Netherlands. Opening upcoming friday 17th, 6pm. I am glad my name is not printed white on the flyer below , hehe … 😉
“From 18 September 2010 to 9 January 2011 on show at Kunsthal KAdE, the exhibition ‘ShadowDance’.
‘ShadowDance’ is a group exhibition featuring work by more than thirty visual artists, all operating on the international art scene and all fascinated by the effect of shadow. The exhibits will vary in terms of content and form. The common denominator will be the use of shadow – and more particularly moving shadows – as a crucial means of visual expression. The artists use shadow as a metaphor for a range of (sometimes heavy-weight) themes: time – alter ego – evil – death. But the shadow phenomenon also inspires more light-hearted work involving the creation of illusions and shadow ‘play’.
At ShadowDance the electric light goes out for a while as, with an imaginary candle flickering in your hand, you are drawn into the sometimes dark but also whimsical worlds evoked by the art. ‘ShadowDance’ is the first major exhibition about the use of shadows in art ever to be staged in the Netherlands.”
Thirty-six international operating artists
Vito Acconci (USA), Charles Atlas (USA), Dirck van Baburen († NL), Aram Bartholl (DE), Christian Boltanski (FR), Jim Campbell (USA), David Claerbout (BE), Haim Elmoznino (IL), Mounir Fatmi (MA), Ellis Gallagher (USA), Hanna von Goeler (DE), Samuel van Hoogstraten († NL), Mella Jaarsma (NL), William Kentridge (ZA), Ralph Kistler (DE), Germaine Kruip (NL), Couzijn van Leeuwen (NL), Gabriel Lester (NL), Zilla Leutenegger (CH), Mark Lewis (UK), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (MX), Wolfgang Munch & Kiyoshi Furukawa (DE & JP), Serge Onnen (FR/ NL), Lotte Reiniger († DE), Viviane Sassen (NL), Tomas Schats (NL), Hyo-Jung Seo (KR), Teresa Serrano (MX), Conrad Shawcross (UK), Sam Taylor-Wood (UK), The One Minutes (NL), Dimitri Vangrunderbeek (BE), Kara Walker (USA), Andy Warhol († USA), Diet Wiegman (NL).
