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

Upcoming Events

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.

Domestic Drama

4. December 2021 – 20. February 2022
Group Show, Halle Für Kunst, Graz

“Alle Gegenstände, die uns umgeben, haben eine eigene Seele, haben menschliche Qualitäten, weil sie nur in einer menschlichen Welt existieren. Es gibt eigentlich keine Gegenstände, die der Mensch wahrnimmt. Es gibt keine rohen, unmenschlichen Objekte. In dem Moment, in dem Möbel, Häuser, Brot, Autos, Fahrräder oder andere Produkte in unserem Leben auftauchen, sind sie mit uns verbunden, sie sind menschlich.”Ernest Dichter, The Strategy of Desire, Martino Publishing, Mansfield, 2012. S. 93.

Domestic Drama möchte durch den bewusst ​„theatralen Auftritt“ der künstlerischen Arbeiten und die gattungsüberschreitende Art der Inszenierung des Wohnraums eine körperliche Teilhabe beim Publikum herausfordern. Im weiteren Schritt erkennt die Ausstellung Emotionalität als einen wichtigen Faktor für unser Handeln an, das längst nicht mehr autonom von uns selbst sondern auch durch die uns umgebenden Objekte und Prozesse gesteuert wird. Die poetische aber dennoch subversiv-kritische Narration, die in Domestic Drama gesponnen wird, versucht so die Vielschichtigkeit der Fragen, Probleme und Mechanismen, die in unserem Alltag im ​„Zuhause” auftauchen, ins Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit zu rücken.

Flying Penis

May 20, 2008

A very nice Virtual -> Real transformation I couldn’t have done better 😉
Flying penis’ are nothing very unusual in Second Life. A so called greefing attack on Anshe Chung during an Interview at CNET in Second Life last year draw quite some attention. Last week somebody reenacted this “performance” during a speech of Garry Kasparov in Real Life! This is just hilarious. And another prove on how the net data space influences every day life in physical space. The “artist” must have know about Second Life greefing attacks, I bet.

Thanks for the link Sascha !

“Export to world”

January 23, 2008


Export to world is a beautiful project by Linda Kostowski and Sascha Pohflepp which was part of a series of Second Life workshops I organized for Second City at Ars Electronica 4.-11.9.2007.

Visitors could buy objects from Second Life for Linden$ (converted to €) in Real Life at the Second City Shop – Ars Electronica. But in fact they got a DIY self papercraft sheet of the 3D object from which they had to create the real paper object themselves. The project relates to the fact that it is not possible to copy protected objects in Second Life. But exporting them to world overides this protection. We had a lot of fun papercrafting Second Life items at Ars!

Check out all the nice objects they made available, download a PDF, print and build your own bubble gum machine! (this pic is not a photoshop!!!)

Very similar project “No Matter” will take place during the promising Mixed Realities Symposium 7-8.2.2008 curated by Jo-Anne Green from Turbulence
