Decision Making – L’instant décisif

9. December 2021 – 13. March 2022
Group Show, Canadien Cultural Centre, Paris

Decisions are the result of complex cognitive processes. Considering them collectively when they involve our shared futures makes them harder to make. But, more and more often, we include machines into such processes through algorithms qualified as decisional. Of course, it raises questions that artists know how to put into perspective. Because of the age that we are currently living in, a brief instant regarding the whole history of our planet, is decisive considering the choices available to us for a responsible development of Artificial Intelligence. Therefore, it is now that human rights are at stake, for instance, about what will emerge from the use of our personal data. The consideration of artworks coming from decisive processes connecting humans to machines could only spring us into an immediate future that still belongs to us.

Museum of Cryptography

10. November 2021 – 23. June 2022
Group Show, Museum of Cryptography, Moscow

2021 году в Москве откроется первый в России Музей криптографии.

Широкой аудитории будет представлено прошлое, настоящее и будущее криптографии, математики и смежных дисциплин. Музей криптографии станет новой точкой притяжения на карте города — местом, где доступно и просто говорят о развитии современных технологий.

Здание, в котором будет расположен Музей криптографии, впервые откроет свои двери для широкой публики. В советские годы это была знаменитая «шарашка» в Марфино, где ученые разрабатывали аппаратуру для шифрования телефонной связи.

Важной частью музея станут мультимедийные экспонаты, инфографика и интерактивные островки формата look&feel, а также редкие экземпляры научных трудов.

Внимание! Молодежная команда Музея криптографии сформирована. Подробности

How to Win at Photography

5. June 2021 – 5. September 2021
Group Show, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Winterthur

How to Win at Photography – Image-Making as Play explores the relationship between photography and play. It investigates the notion of image play, creating unexpected connections between the history of photography, the gamification of the visible as well as practices of image making with and within computer games.

The group exhibition How to Win at Photography includes more than forty positions from contemporary and 20th century photography. Through an assemblage of multimedia artworks and vernacular images, the exhibition questions the very meaning and function of photography today.

Are we playing with the camera or is the camera ultimately playing us? Are we really in charge or are we mere pawns in larger technical, social, cultural and economic networks? What can a playful photographer achieve on a political and socio-cultural level? Who and what is performing the act of seeing and capturing – humans, machines or a combination of both? Who is playing along? And finally, can this game be won? These are just some of the questions posed by How to Win at Photography.
The exhibition invites visitors to focus on the playful aspects of photography. The exhibition looks at artists and photographers who play with – and sometimes against – the camera, document the environments of videogames and question the notion of identity, gender and class.

With works by: Cory Arcangel, Aram Bartholl, Dorothée Elisa Baumann, Justin Berry, Julius Brauckmann, Alan Butler, Claude Cahun, Cibelle Cavalli Bastos, Dries Depoorter & Max Pinckers, Philipp Dorl, Constant Dullaart, Harun Farocki, Christopher Graves, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Beate Gütschow, Jon Haddock, Emily Hadrich, Florence Henri, Roc Herms, John Hilliard, Yuyi John, Rindon Johnson, Andy Kassier, Sherrie Levine, Gloria López Cleries & Sive Hamilton Helle, René Mächler, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs, Joan Pamboukes, Steven Pippin, Michael Reisch, Tabor Robak, Ria Patricia Röder, Lorna Ruth Galloway, Ed Ruscha, Emma Agnes Sheffer, Cindy Sherman, Guido Segni, Andrew Stine, Petra Szemán, Akihiko Taniguchi, Danielle Udogaranya, Coralie Vogelaar, Tamás Waliczky and Ai Weiwei.

It looks like google maps has a serious disease. Swineflu maybe? Some days ago red dots (smallpox?) appeared in the (inter)face. Uhh … looks awful. Someone please call the doctor!
(Hey Google!! You can’t just change the interface without asking. What am I supposed to do with my “Map” installation now ???!! You already messed up the navigation cross a while ago!! OMG … HELP !!!)

“Map” at inSPIRACJE

March 25, 2009

inSPIRACJE festival in Szczecin, Poland (just 150 km from Berlin) was great fun. On its 5th edition the festival showed work of more than 65 artists in over 20 venues in the city. I am please to show the “Map” installation which marks out the center of the city at Pl. Żołnierza Polskiego. It’ll stay there for 3 months in public so the people of Szczecin will find their way 😉 . The piece came out very well and the team of inSPIRACJE did a great job on it.

Thx a lot to Joanna Trela, international coordination!
Thx a lot to Rafał Roguszka for production coordination!
Thx a lot to to Bartek Kalejta and the rest of the logistic team, which did a great job!
Thx a lot to the whole inSPIRACJE team to make this possible!!!
and thx for the great hospitality!

7-10 Millionen

March 16, 2009

I have a vague feeling that in a couple years all these nice and large JPGs I am posting will appear as tiny thumbnails on the screen. If you want to run a sustainable picture blog it would make a lot sence to start uploading really large images ( i.e. native 10mpixel ). Screens will not only be bigger but for certain will have much higher resolution per inch in the future.
This picture looks like a 1997 (compuserve-) GIF but was actually taken today by a mobile phone cam and then send via MMS (probably compressed again) to me. “Map” is up and running! It marks out what Google considers to be the center of the polish city Sczcecin. From Berlin it’s just a 2h trip by train and by Brandenburgticket (35,- / 5 people) very cheap to go there. Think about it! inSPIRACJE festival !

and much more!!!
