When I was a kid we used to pick up dumped black and white TVs from the streets. In the late nineties and early 2000’s I couldn’t resist to collect all these CRT screens in the street (it’s stil going on but eventually I dumped my electro trash collection a while ago). Today it seems I witnessed a new era of electro trash. It is the very first time that I found a crashed iphone in the street (next to a tree in a small bush, typical CRT spot). I am curious how many more years it ll take till people will dump working iPhones …. (or anyone lost his in Bremen Mitte? Sorry man, I ve bad news!) … and I had to explain to my son why it won t make sense to get it repaired. Another sad part on how to explaining society.

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.
