lecture: »Hard Drive Punch«
Destroying data as a performative act
In general data is stored on technically sensitive systems and can easily be lost. At the same time files today appear often as indestructible once uploaded to the Internet.
In this presentation I will talk about a variety of approaches on data destruction and how these connect to current events and questions in society. From professional hard drive punch systems and art projects to DIY thermite melting, the art of destroying data is a wide spread cultural phenomenon.
Workshop: Bring your old hard drives to have them crushed with the IDEAL 0101 hard drive punch or cut the data platter yourself by hand.
Competition: You think you can still recover files from this drive? Which methods are the best?
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.
