I am not a Robot

16. September – 27. November 2022
Gruppenausstellung, Ludwig Múzeum, Budapest

I am not a Robot. On the Borders of the Singularity.

As a harbinger of the (supposedly) imminent arrival of the Singularity, the exhibition explores the powerful impact of technological development on our daily lives.

One of the defining global phenomena of our time is digitalisation, which has transformed human life in an evolutionary leap over the past decades, rewriting centuries of fixed habits, forms and behavioural patterns. The digital turn is still ongoing, with our lives moving from offline to online, and the digital presence growing rapidly. Digital technology in its current state is a new normativity that is part of work and life: not an enemy, not a friend, but a natural part of life…

Playmode

20. July – 12. October 2022
Gruppenausstellung, CCBB – Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, Rio de Janeiro

Since very early on, artists have understood the power of transformation of play, integrating it into their works with distinct purposes -evasion of reality, social construction and transformation, subversion or criticism of the very mechanisms of play and games. The exhibition Playmode proposes a reflection on these aspects and on the period of ludification that contemporary societies are going through, bringing together the work of several artists who adopt the theme and explore new ways of seeing, participating in, and transforming the world, using play in a critical manner.

Curators: Filipe Pais and Patrícia Gouveia.

 

The Glass Room

18. January – 26. November 2022
Gruppenausstellung, MOD, Adelaide

The Glass Room MOD
The Glass Room is a public intervention that aims to educate about technology. With a sleek tech shop vibe, visitors can freely and critically discuss their relationships with data privacy.

Having toured Europe and the US, it will be visiting Australia for the first time in 2022.

From the tech boom to tech backlash, our understanding of the digital has become both deeply personal and deeply political. Our desire for convenience has given way to questions about the trade-offs for how much we can control our data and our understanding about how it is used.

The Glass Room is a place to explore these ideas. The objects here bring to life the hidden aspects of everyday technologies and examine how they are changing the way we live. The objects in The Glass Room provide unconventional and unexpected ways of seeing your relationship with your data.

As technology becomes embedded in every part of our lives, The Glass Room helps you look deeper into the digital: Does your personal data say everything about you, or is it an imperfect portrait? Do more tools, apps, and information make us better and more efficient, or are we giving away more than we want in return? What goes on behind the screens and inside the black boxes of the devices we interact with everyday? If we knew, would we still sign in or click ‘I agree’? How much trust do users invest in big tech companies, and what can be done if that trust is broken? If you want to learn more, you can visit our Data Detox Bar to pick up our Data Detox Kit, which offers you simple tips to enhance your digital privacy, security, and wellbeing.

Featured Artists:

Dries Depoorter, Aram Bartholl, Kiki Mager, Bengt Sjölén, Danja Vasiliev, Sebastian Schmieg, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Tega Brain / Sam Lavigne, Kyriaki Goni, La Loma, and Tactical Tech

Enigma

19. November 2022 – 19. November 2023
Gruppenausstellung, Museum of Communication, Kopenhagen

Communication pervades our lives more than ever before. With the digital channels, we are constantly accessible and can publish ourselves wherever and whenever we want. But despite the many great opportunities, the tide of information may often appear confusing, polarizing or hateful, and our public conversation is challenged.

On November 19, 2022, ENIGMA will open new exhibition areas and a large children’s area, in which we look forward to welcoming everyone.

Kunst gegen Rechts

4. November – 22. December 2022
Gruppenausstellung, NGfZK - Neue Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Gera

Eingeladene Künstler:innen:
Ulf Arminde, Stefan Alber, Aram Bartholi, Fehmi Baumbach, Marc Bijl,  Jessica Buhlmann/Zao, Zuzanna Czebatul, Moritz Frei, Jana Gunstheimer, Christian Henkel, Verena Issel, Zoe C. Miller, Anne Mundo, Rainer Neumeier,  Angelika Nguyen, Thomas Prochnow, Regina Schmeken, Schroeter&Berger, Kristina Schuldt, Raul Walch, Christian Werner, Ina Wudtke

Die siebte Ausstellung der Reihe KUNST GEGEN RECHTS nimmt den 30. Jahrestag der Pogrome von Rostock-Lichtenhagen als Anlass, um kritisch auf aktuelle, gesellschaftliche Konflikte einzugehen.

Deutschland ist eine postmigrantische Gesellschaft der Vielen. Immer noch wird diese Tatsache viel zu wenig zur Kenntnis genommen. Der Wiedervereinigung am 3. Oktober 1990 folgten rassistische Ausschreitungen und Mordanschläge in Rostock, Mannheim, Hoyerswerda, Mölln und Solingen bis zur Terrorserie des NSU. Es folgten Anschläge auf jüdische Friedhöfe und emanzipatorische Projekte. Eine wiedererwachte deutsche Volksgemeinschaft kroch aus den Löchern hervor.

Der rechte Populismus, der die Kultureinrichtungen als Akteure einer gesellschaftlichen demokratischen Vision angreift, steht der Kunst der Vielen feindselig gegenüber. Die Neue Rechte hat die Kulturpolitik als Kampffeld entdeckt, um ihre völkischen Vorstellungen umzusetzen. Rechte Gruppierungen und Parteien stören Veranstaltungen, verhindern Ausstellungen, greifen in Theater-Spielpläne ein, polemisieren gegen die Freiheit der Kunst, gegen Dekoloniale Erinnerungsprojekte und arbeiten an einer Renationalisierung der Kultur. Es wird einFeldzug gegen zeitgenössische, „undeutsche“ Kunst geführt, die als „neumodische Extravaganzen“ und „exzentrische Randgruppenkunst“ bezeichnet wird, wie aktuell gegen den Kunstverein in Zwickau.

Seit dem Ausbruch der Pandemie, stehen viele Dinge auf dem Prüfstand. Es zeigte sich, wer ein solidarisches Miteinander praktiziert und wer als Pandemiegewinnler oder Coronaleugner die Krise für eigene Interessen nutzt. Bei den sogenannten Querdenken-Demonstrationen kommt es zu einer fatalen Zusammenarbeit verschiedener Akteure. Rechte Gruppierungen und Parteien gewinnen immer mehr an Einfluss. Antisemitismus ist in der neuen Bewegung stark vertreten, wie auch eine Verharmlosung der Shoa und der Gleichsetzung der NS-Zeit mit der aktuellen Situation.

Safe Mode: Amplified Realities

8. October – 5. November 2022
Gruppenausstellung, TILT Platform, Athens

The current mutated “epidemiological” societies within which we exist reveal that any previous indication we had about the term “safety” is now in limbo. TILT Platform has started exploring and developing the concept “Safe Mode” likening it to the indication safe mode appearing on our computers and smart devices, when they stop functioning properly after a major technical crisis. The process of safe mode emerges as the only possible solution. Comparing this state of technological malfunction to the processes of contemporary life, psychology and human behaviour, the term safe mode acquires an anthropological character.

How Fish Learn About Water

1. – 30. October 2022
Gruppenausstellung, T3 Photo Festival Tokyo, Tokio

ABOUT T3 PHOTO FESTIVAL TOKYO

On Equal Terms

15. – 25. September 2022
Gruppenausstellung, Uferhallen, Berlin

From September 15 to 25, the Uferhallen will present the group exhibition On Equal Terms.

With:
Stefan Alber , Aram Bartholl , Antje Blumenstein , Benedikt Braun , Lou Cantor , Peter Dobroschke , Maria Eichhorn , FORT , Heiner Franzen , Wolfgang Ganter , Asta Gröting , Christian Henkel , IOCOSE , Šejla Kamerić , Bianca Kennedy , Peter Klare , Werner Liebmann , Tommy Neuwirth , Manfred Peckl , Alona Rodeh , Hansjörg Schneider , Bettina Scholz , Ann Schomburg , Mark Wallinger , Klaus Weber , Nicole Wermers

Curated by  Sophia Gräfe und Arkadij Koscheew.

A large majority of Berlin-based artists are trying to resist the eco‐ nomic displacement of spaces for artistic experimentation. However, their language is sometimes forced to conform to a similar logic, as workplaces and artistic networks are labelled as “creative hubs” and “cultural capital.” In the struggle against the gentrification of spaces for living and working, these same spaces necessarily become subject to the cultural economy’s valorization process. What is the price to pay for entering the political bidding war for space? What is the relationship between cultural and monetary capital? Are both sides of the conversation on equal terms?

The group show examines, among other things, how art deals with mechanisms of the partly voluntary, partly forced commodification of cultural and artistic values. The exhibition will showcase works by approximately 25 artists from Uferhallen

Bike In Head

24. July – 18. September 2022
Gruppenausstellung, Städtische Galerie, Bremen

Beteiligte Künstler*innen:

Aram Bartholl, Rainer Ganahl, GRIT3000, Tobias Hübel / Anne Krönker, Stefan Jeep, Hannes Langeder, Kosuke Masuda, Kirsten Pieroth, Jens Weyers, Wolfgang Zach

in Kooperation mit Bike It!, Städtische Galerie Delmenhorst, Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven

Die Ausstellung bike in head versammelt künstlerische Positionen, die das Fahrrad als Verkehrsmittel, als Status und Statussymbol und als beste menschliche Fortbewegungsart analysieren. Während Fahrräder in der Kunstgeschichte immer wieder als besondere Objekte zum Thema der Kunst geworden sind, zeigt bike in head, was das Fahrrad gesellschaftlich und lebensphilosophisch bedeuten kann. Der japanische Künstler Kosuke Masuda etwa nutzt traditionelle Tuschezeichnung, um in einem Atemzug je ein Bild zu entwerfen, das immer um das Radfahren kreist. Die Bewegung des Geistes, synchron mit dem Atem, wird zur Bewegung der zeichnenden Hand, die alles in die Darstellung einer selbstbezogenen, sich selbst reproduzierenden Fortbewegung überführt. Und diese bietet für die menschliche Wahrnehmung der Umgebung eine ideale Geschwindigkeit und einen perfekten Rhythmus. Über die Serie von über hundert solcher Zeichnungen vermittelt sich eine ganze rad-basierte Welterfahrung.

Wenn Jens Weyers Fahrräder, die seit Jahren eine besondere Verbindung zu ihren Besitzer*innen bezeugen, wie perfekt ausgeleuchtete Topmodels inszeniert und mittels dieser Oberflächenschönheit all die Gebrauchtspuren der Räder, die uns erst auf den zweiten Blick bewusst werden, als ihr Karma feiert, ist er mit einem formal anderen Ansatz auf einer ähnlichen Spur. Wie Fahrräder andererseits zu inszenierten Statussymbolen einer sich selbst optimierenden Freizeit- und Sportgesellschaft werden, komplett mit eigener Social Media-Ästhetik, greifen Tobias Hübel und Anne Krönker in teils großformatigen Fotos auf, die ebenso ironisch wie fasziniert auf eine Welt mit eigenen Grenzen blicken. Wo dies gelegentlich endet, zeigt Aram Bartholl, der sowohl hippe Gefährte wie E-Roller als auch alte Fahrräder als archäologische Relikte dieser Welt aus der Spree gezogen hat.

Das ambivalente, merkwürdige Verhältnis zum Gebrauchsgegenstand und Verkehrsmittel Fahrrad, das in all diesen Arbeiten ersichtlich wird, spielt für Menschen, die heute ihren Beruf schon auf dem Rad ausüben, eine ganz andere Rolle. Das Kollektiv fahrrad express reflektiert in seinem Zine Grit3000 mit Texten und Bildern über das Radkurierfahren, über die Zumutungen und Belastungen, die Faszination und nicht zuletzt die Genderfragen, die mit dem Fahrradfahren allgemein, mit diesem Beruf im Speziellen einhergehen. Dessen Bedeutung als Sisyphos-hafte Betätigung reflektiert auch Kirsten Pieroth in einem konzeptuellen Kunstwerk, welches das Fahrradfahren als Instrument des Kunstschaffens einsetzt und damit die Wertigkeit des Radkurier-Arbeitens als Wertigkeit eines Kunstobjekts umdeutet.

So kommt das Fahrrad in die Kunst zurück, ohne als skulpturales Objekt verwendet zu werden. Das allerdings macht der österreichische Künstler Hannes Langeder, der sein Fahrrad in der perfekten Nachahmung eines Ferrari-Wagens unterbringt. Dieses Fahrradi Farfalla führt alle Qualitäten des Luxusautos ad absurdum und macht im Kontext des Fahrrads als das zentrale Zukunftsverkehrsmittel auch noch einmal deutlich, dass Radverkehr vorerst nicht zu denken ist, ohne sich vom Auto abzugrenzen und unsere autofixierte Gesellschaft und Verkehrssysteme ganz neu zu denken.

Die Städtische Galerie Bremen liegt direkt am Weserradwanderweg und möchte die Sommermonate nutzen, die Fahrradausstellung direkt er-fahr-bar zu machen und sie mit dem eigenen Rad zu befahren und zu erleben. bike in head zeigt in diesem Kontext nicht ausschließlich künstlerische Positionen, sondern lädt zur Fahrradselbstreparatur ein, verweist auf aktuelles Fahrraddesign aus Bremen und zeigt eine Auswahl an Kurzfilmen zum Fahrrad. Diese wird von unserem Kooperationspartner „Bremen BIKE IT!“ kuratiert, der uns außerdem vor allem hinsichtlich aller Fragen von Bremen als Fahrradstadt unterstützt.

bike in head ist die dritte Etappe im Kooperationsprojekt zum umfassenden Thema des Fahrrads in der Kunst, das mit der Ausstellung Fahrradkörper vom 15. August bis 31. Oktober 2021 in der Städtischen Galerie Delmenhorst bereits Fahrt aufgenommen hat. Es wird mit der zweiten Etappe in der Ausstellung Cyclophilia vom 22. Juli bis 18. September in der Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven mit einem Fokus auf dem Fahrrad als Performance- und Musikinstrument und mit bike in head in der Städtischen Galerie Bremen weitergeführt und ins Ziel gefahren.

Darüber hinaus will die Städtische Galerie Bremen neben der Ausstellung künstlerischer Positionen in Kombination mit soziologischen Fragestellungen und gestalterischen Konzepten vor allem durch ein umfassendes Veranstaltungsprogramm dem Fahrrad als zentrales Konzept einer sich verändernden Gesellschaft nachspüren und die damit verbundenen Fragen mit der Öffentlichkeit verhandeln. Neben Fahrradtouren inklusive einer Befahrung der Ausstellung sind Filmscreenings, Lesungen und Aktionen im öffentlichen Raum geplant. Dies soll um ein innovatives Vermittlungsprogramm ergänzt werden. In einer zweiteiligen Publikation wird die Ausstellung festgehalten. Der eigentliche Ausstellungskatalog erscheint als dreiteiliges Buchprojekt, das die Etappen der Kooperation zwischen den Kunsthäusern in Bremen, Delmenhorst und Wilhelmshaven dokumentiert. Der Bremer Katalog wird außerdem um eine umfangreichere Publikation ergänzt, in der Fragen des Radfahrens in Bremen in diversen gesellschaftlichen Feldern thematisiert werden.

DFG-Schwerpunktprogramms „Das digitale Bild“

7. – 9. July 2022
Talk, Online, München, Marburg

At the fifth conference of the priority program “The Digital Image”, which will take place in Marburg and online from July 7 to 9, 2022, we would like to devote ourselves to this aspect in detail and map various positions, illuminate approaches, and address problems. What is the relationship between the two cultural variables of art and science in the digital? What role do visualizations of abstract program codes play and what do we learn from looking into the black box AI? What are the historical implications of the genesis of the digital in the mathematical sciences, starting with the founders of computer science Alan Turing and John von Neumann? How do artists use specific properties and attributes of the digital image and how do they expand the creative possibilities or even the concept of art?

Are algorithms to be considered only as a tool for art, or are new kinds of cultural aesthetics emerging? Does the digital image change creative production, or should it rather be seen as a communication tool for artists?

The conference will provide an opportunity to look at exemplary phenomena and to compile descriptions, analyses and theses. The aim is to identify intersections from different disciplines and at the same time to reflect current research discourses from a new point of view. Details on the transdisciplinary projects of the first funding period can be found on our homepage:

'Shadow Dance'

Juni 17, 2010


18 September – 9 January 2011
ShadowDance
‚ShadowDance’ is a group exhibition featuring work by more than thirty visual artists, all operating on the international art scene and all fascinated by the effect of shadow. The exhibits will vary in terms of content and form. The common denominator will be the use of shadow – and more particularly moving shadows – as a crucial means of visual expression. The artists use shadow as a metaphor for a range of (sometimes heavy-weight) themes: time – alter ego – evil – death. But the shadow phenomenon also inspires more light-hearted work involving the creation of illusions and shadow ‘play’.

Jon Cates (US) 2010
MOAR!!! MAKE PAPER DANCE GIF GLITCHEEESSS is the reaction to a Twitter conversation with three friends on a single day. Jon Cates who is well know for his digital punk / raw bytes – style remixed a webpage which was already a reply to a first post by another friend.  In the multitude of layers of the content from his friends animated gifs turn into actual video, color pixel into xerox dirty b/w and the audio results in abstract noise.

Nervous News is a new unreleased piece from Constant Dullaart’s series of website modifications of major famous websites on the Internet like Google or BBC News. By loading the BBC page through an iframe with its very own quality the page itself appears to become a person with emotional an condition .

2010
Contemporary Home Computer Music by Dragan Espenschied
Dragan Espenschied is well known for his radical and consequent 8-bit music compositions for many years. His new music site Noobz represents a highly differentiated mix of plain HTML, amateur page style, custom music player interfaces and sophisticated code hidden in the upper layers.
Thumbing
Material: Youtube video comments
JODI (NL/BE)
2010
Thumbing is an ongoing Youtube intervention. The option to video comment on a Youtube video is used by the artists group JODI as a tool for performance. By holding up the thumb very close to the webcam for a 2-3 second moment the video-site monopoly gets infiltrated by an endless series of useless ‚pokes‘. The performance itself is split into thousands short clips on random Youtube videos. The blurred and flesh colored video bits evoke again  harsh reactions from the actual audience on Youtube.
Kopyfamo

Geraldine Juarez (MX)
2009
The project Kopyfamo by Geraldine Juarez offers a web interface to upload images to which then watermarks of well known press agency are added. The initial idea of the watermark to protect and devalue the image by inserting a brand logo is inversed by Juarez’s approach. A lot of water marked pictures of VIPs and famous pop stars can be found at AFP, Getty and Reuters. The watermark in the picture grants importance to the portrait person. By adding a watermark to his/her own picture the user gains instant celebrity status in Juarez’s interactive piece.
Web****** (unreleased piece)
Material: Firefox addon, java script
Tobias Leingruber (DE)
2010
Tobias Leingruber is well known for the Artzilla-platform (artzilla.org) where he collects and curates artistic Firefox browser addons. Webmarker is his own latest unreleased FF addon creation which turns every web page into a canvas for steet-art like tagging . “Mark the web and anyone can see it!! The Webmarker Firefox Add-on allows you to draw or take notes on any webpage. Activate „Street Mode“ and find the drawings of others while browsing the web. The Webmarker FF Add-on is fully integrated into 000000book.com, a service for GML based projects.”
Midnight
Material: HTML, java, animated gifs
Olia Lialina (RU) Dragan Espenschied (DE)
2006
The classic zoom and pan interface from Google maps is turned into a firework of amateur gif animations. The symbolic loaded cross on a black background turns from its calm pixel state into a wild animation of little smileys, flowers and hearts on every single touch by the mouse. The hidden beauty of a world Internet monopoly company’s slide interface. Olia Lialina and Dragan Espenschied are unbeatable experts for the amateur culture of the web since many years. (‚Digital Folklore‘ reader recommended)
Suicidemachine
Material: Embedded screencapture, 720p, 8h of unfriending
Moddr [Walter Langelaar (NL), Gordan Savicic (AT), Danja Vasiliev (RU)]
2009-2010
With a very precise super timing Moddr started the webservice Suicide Machine in fall 2009. Facebook has fallen very deep since then and a wide discussion on social networks and privacy is going on currently in the mainstream media. The mix of highly professional appearance and sarcastic video credentials makes the project a sophisticated unmissable statement in the era of privacy violating and direct marketing driven social network monopolies.
Fakebook
Material: HTML
Johannes P Osterhoff (DE)
2010
“People find me in Facebook too easily and many start to use Facebook instead of e-mail. As I do not like this at all and as I do not want to enter the gated community of Facebook everyday, [….] Old acquaintance seem to query my name in Google, find the entry of Facebook and contact me there without checking my website or using the contact possibilities of good ol’ e-mail. So I created a very simple web-page which also shows up in Google search results and looks very similar to the result of Facebook there. I called it Fakebook.”
Animated Gif Mashup – Dance Sequence #001
Material: HTML, php, java and loooong URLs
Evan Roth
2010
A Customizable gif mashup engine. Pop meets gif meets rap. Evan Roth works represent a highly sophisticated mix of net, open source and pop culture. In his often very minimalistic web based pieces he picks up elements from all these sides. Besides the elaborate visual mix plus music the Dance Sequence #001 unfolds its full beauty in the very long URL which is caused by the simplistic concept of arranging independent animated gifs in a single line of browser adress.
superfreedraw
Material: HTML, Java
Ralph Schulz aka rgb3000 (DE)
2010
Super free draw is a strikingly minimalistic and at the same time socially elaborate collaborative drawing platform. All user can  draw on the endless big digital canvas anonymoulsly with a one pixel wide black pen. It is not possible to erase what you have drawn and your creation is not protected for being altered or misused by other users. In a moment of great relief Super Free Draw detaches social web rules and creates a radical almost physical experience of collaboration.
You’re Not My Father

Paul Slocom (US)
2008-2010
“This video project is composed of a sequence of recreations of a 10 second scene from the television show, Full House, overlaid with a set of sound loops from the scene’s original music. The crews who re-shot the scene were recruited through Internet message boards and Craigslist, and each of the original 10 crews were paid $150, using a commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., for Networked Music Review. The project included participants from Austin, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dallas, Denton, London, and San Francisco….”

Midnight

Material: HTML, java, animated gifs

Olia Lialina (RU) Dragan Espenschied (DE)

2006

The classic zoom and pan interface from Google maps is turned into a firework of amateur gif animations. The symbolic loaded cross on a black background turns from its calm pixel state into a wild animation of little smileys, flowers and hearts on every single touch by the mouse. The hidden beauty of a world Internet monopoly company’s slide interface. Olia Lialina and Dragan Espenschied are unbeatable experts for the amateur culture of the web since many years.

Moddr [Walter Langelaar (NL), Gordan Savicic (AT), Danja Vasiliev (RU)]

2009-2010

With a very precise super timing Moddr started the webservice Suicide Machine in fall 2009. Facebook has fallen very deep since then and a wide discussion on social networks and privacy is going on currently in the mainstream media. The mix of highly professional appearance and sarcastic video credentials makes the project a sophisticated unmissable statement in the era of privacy violating and direct marketing driven social network monopolies.

2010

As I do not like this at all and as I do not want to enter the gated community of Facebook everyday, [….] Old acquaintance seem to query my name in Google, find the entry of Facebook and contact me there without checking my website or using the contact possibilities of good ol’ e-mail. So I created a very simple web-page which also shows up in Google search results and looks very similar to the result of Facebook there. I called it Fakebook.”

Evan Roth

A Customizable gif mashup engine. Pop meets gif meets rap. Evan Roth works represent a highly sophisticated mix of net, open source and pop culture. In his often very minimalistic web based pieces he picks up elements from all these sides. Besides the elaborate visual mix plus music the Dance Sequence #001 unfolds its full beauty in the very long URL which is caused by the simplistic concept of arranging independent animated gifs in a single line of browser adress.
