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

Domestic Drama

14. 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.

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.

Vertical Video DVD

March 28, 2013


DVD Dead Drop vol.6: ‘Vertical Video’
March 19 – May 7, 2013 at the Museum of Moving Image NYC
by Sakrwoki aka curatingyoutube.net and Aram Bartholl. 2013, 62 mins. DVD.
Vertical Video is a one-hour selection of amateur videos captured in the 9:16 aspect ratio, first compiled for a special screening in Berlin entitled Vertical Cinema. The DVD includes a special How To video with instructions for adjusting a home theater or other viewing environment to properly experience these works.
Fueled by a proliferation of mobile, inexpensive, high quality cameras and free online distribution platforms, self-trained media producers continue to invent creative uses for media technologies that challenge contemporary viewing behaviors and expectations. Even though the 9:16 aspect ratio is often understood to be “wrong” €“the result of using a camera “incorrectly” €“videos in 9:16 are being created and distributed online at an increasing rate. Unchained from cinema screens, televisions, and computer monitors, media makers are free to create for viewing experiences outside of traditional horizontal exhibition hardware.
Vertical Video is a compilation of videos with a wide range of subjects including architecture, wildlife, bodies in motion, gaming, eyewitness accounts, and current events whose vertical treatment is a natural and fitting decision. Until now, many of these videos have only been seen online where they have been thickly pillarboxed and shrunk to squeeze into the existing horizontal viewing system. This compilation provides evidence that a new generation of media producers, freed from concerns about conventional screening requirements, reject the arbitrary restrictions of the horizontal screen and maintain a more fluid relationship with the frame.
The selection was originally screened at Vertical Cinema Platoon Berlin on Feb 18 2013, see also http://datenform.de/vertical-video-eng.html
