Mind Over Matter

11. December 2020 – 15. March 2021
Gruppenausstellung, Technische Sammlungen Dresden, Dresden

MIND OVER MATTER, eine englische Redewendung, die mit der deutschen Volksweisheit DER WILLE VERSETZT BERGE verglichen werden kann.

Die Redewendung wird ebenso in der Parapsychologie für die Beschreibung von paranormalen Phänomenen, wie z.B. der Psychokinese verwendet. Es sollen im Rahmen der Ausstellung und des Vortragsprogramms vor allem Fragen der Bewusstseinsforschung, des Machine Learning und der Struktur des Selbst und Selbsterlebens nachgegangen werden. Seit jeher werden diese Fragen im Rahmen von Science-Fiction Literatur, aktuellen Filmreihen wie Matrix oder Westworld in Zukunftssettings projiziert, die mittels fortschrittlicher Technologie die Frage zu lösen versuchen, wie sich Geist und Bewusstseinsphänomene innerhalb von komplexen Materieansammlungen, die aus kleinsten, atomaren Bestandteilen zusammengefügt sind, entwickeln und manifestieren
kann. Diese aktuellen philosophischen Fragen, die sich anhand unserer technischen Errungenschaften in Hinblick auf elektronische Datenverarbeitung und umfassende Massenkommunikation mit neuer Vehemenz stellen, sind aber bereits seit Jahrhunderten auch in unseren Breiten im Zentrum der philosophischen Spekulationen, angefangen beim Bewusstseins- und Gottesbegriff von Rene Descartes und Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz im 17. Jahrhundert. Es werden unterschiedliche philosophische Grundfragen nach der Struktur des Seins, der Materie und der Zeit aufgeworfen, die mittels technologischer und künstlerischer Versuchsanordnungen erforscht werden.

Die Frage nach der Natur unseres Bewusstseins, und wie es möglich ist, dass es in unserem Universum existiert und es erlebt, ist wohl das faszinierendste Rätsel, mit dem wir konfrontiert sind. Das Forschungsgebiet der Künstlichen Intelligenz (KI) wurde nicht zuletzt ins Leben gerufen, um darauf eine Antwort zu finden. Die Medienkunst bezieht sich seit ihren Anfängen auf die Erforschungen dieses Verhältnisses von Mensch, Technologie und Bewusstsein, unter Zuhilfenahme technologischer und künstlerischer Modelle und technischer Hilfsmittel. In dem Versuch, auf Computern die kognitiven Prozesse des Menschen zu realisieren, entwickeln wir ein testbares Verständnis und Begriffe davon, wie elementare Informationsverarbeitungsprozesse zu komplexem Erleben führen, es handelt sich um nicht weniger als dem Versuch einer Theory of Everything , mittels der Spiegelung und Überführung in ein maschinell-abstraktes Informationsverarbeitungssystem, welches aber nach dem Vorbild der menschlichen Informationsverarbeitung modelliert wurde.

Was unterscheidet heutige KI-Systeme vom menschlichen Geist? Die heutigen Anwendungen der KI konzentrieren sich vor allem auf die Klassifikation von Daten und die Steuerung technischer Systeme. Unser Geist ist jedoch mehr als ein Klassifikator: er erschafft aktiv ein dynamisches Modell der Umwelt, einen Traum, der in den sensorischen Daten verankert ist, und den er erlebt und reflektiert. Künstlerische Arbeiten, die diese Modellierung in technischer wie humanistischer Hinsicht exerzieren und reflektieren sollen vorgestellt und diskutiert werden, dabei sind lokale, nationale und internationale Beiträge eingeladen.

Owned By Others

1. December 2020 – 31. January 2021
Gruppenausstellung, Museum Tropicana, Berlin

Owned by Others is an artistic endeavor uncovering narratives, places, and artifacts from, around, and on Berlin’s Museum Island. The dialogical initiative fosters actions, interventions, research, performances, and social encounters in the public realm which link the island’s multi-layered history-scapes to global contemporary artistic practices. The project unfolds in fall 2020 through a series of interventions, a map-based website, and a publication. As collaborations span from Baghdad to Guatemala City, from Addis Ababa to Tijuana, and from Singapore to Dakar, the démarche revolves around the structures of Museum Island. The Initiative translates ongoing political discussions into contemporary, post-national collaborations, relations, and methods that negotiate globality, historicity, and the present.

OWNED BY OTHERS
Fremdbesitz and tracing narratives of an island

Owned by Others is an artistic endeavor uncovering narratives, places, and artifacts from, around, and on Berlin’s Museum Island. The project assembles methods for thinking about and tactics for claiming the site as a new city center of the commons. Who is responsible for telling the story of this place, and where might they be stuck in times of the pandemic?

RE-INVENT CENTRALITY
A map-based website www.ownedbyothers.org and public archive as well as events, exhibitions, and weekly gatherings complete the project. The physical center of all processes is the newly established Museum Tropicana at Spreeufer 6 opposite the Berliner Schloss. It accommodates the Owned by Others offices; hosts a supporting program with exhibitions, presentations, and lecture performances; and convenes a weekly Tuesday evening get-together strictly following the latest hygiene regulations.

Seasons of Media Arts

9. September 2020 – 31. March 2021
Gruppenausstellung, ZKM - Zentrum für Kunst und Medien, Karlsruhe

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.

Decision Making – L’instant décisif

9. December 2021 – 13. March 2022
Gruppenausstellung, 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

5. September – 31. December 2021
Gruppenausstellung, 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

Imagine you Wake Up and There is no Internet

22. October – 16. November 2020
Gruppenausstellung, Romantso, Athens

What will happen if one day you wake up and there is no Internet?

The exhibition Imagine you wake up and there is no Internet explores the effects of ubiquitous connectivity and technology in everyday life. Starting from our obsession with digital technologies, the exhibition seeks to enhance the debate about the coexistence of human and machine in the 21st century.

13 artists and 5 art collectives showcase scenarios from the present time and the near future, strategies of disconnection and disorientation, evacuation and escape plans from the city, studies on the information society, snapshots from digital life and the infrastructures that allows us to be connected to the network, and new readings for the political period we are going through. Any sense of certainty for the present and the future seems to have been destabilised.

31 years after the creation of the world wide web, concepts such as space, time, value and labor have acquired new meaning. And these concepts will continue to take on new meaning as the technology that we use the most, changes at great speed leaving us -often- in the position of the observer with little space for manoeuvring. The levels of control and surveillance in the networks we navigate, whether resulting from political decisions or market trends, are often obscure. At the same time, everyday life and personal data have acquired a particular economic value within networks and our obsession with constant connectivity, can only accelerate a technological future where human behaviour becomes predictable or can be predicted to meet political or/and economic trends.

The works in the exhibition highlight moments and fragments of our digital life surfacing issues related to the human-machine relationship and its impact on the public sphere. The exhibition aims at contributing to the discussion on the constantly accelerating dynamics of the Network, our position within it, and finally, the boundaries between a human-driven versus a machine-driven technological world.

The exhibition presents new commissions and works from: Marina Gioti, Vaggelis Deligiorgis, Antonis Kalagkatsis, George Moraitis, Manos Saklas, Alexandros Tzannis, Jono Boyle and the new version of the work “Tracing Information Society – A Timeline” by Technopolitics group.

Participating Artists:
!Mediengruppe Bitnik & Low Jack (DE/FR), Aram Bartholl (DE), Jono Boyle (UK), Heath Bunting & Kayle Brandon (UK), Vaggelis Deligiorgis (GR), Exonemo (JP), Marina Gioti (GR), Antonis Kalagkatsis (GR), George Moraitis (GR), No Más / No More (GR), Manos Saklas (GR), Molly Soda (U.S.), Superflux (UK), Technopolitics (AT), Alexandros Tzannis (GR), Filipe Vilas-Boas (PT)

People have been dealing with concepts and visions for shaping the world of tomorrow since time immemorial. How do we want to live? What kind of housing do we want to live in? How do we want to work? Our society is influenced by visions of the future, in particular those put forward by artists, architects, and scientists. And yet our present is always the future of yesterday, because many of these ideas remain visions, others have been brought to fruition. The exhibition How to Live? Visions of the Future Yesterday and Today at the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum presents designs for the future from the areas of art, architecture and design ranging from the Russian avant-garde to our current digital era, and plots a multifaceted history of the future.

'Shadow Dance' at KAdE

September 14, 2010


I am showing the piece ‚0,16‚ at the museum KAdE Amersfoort Netherlands. Opening upcoming friday 17th, 6pm. I am glad my name is not printed white on the flyer below , hehe … 😉
„From 18 September 2010 to 9 January 2011 on show at Kunsthal KAdE, the exhibition ‚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’.
At ShadowDance the electric light goes out for a while as, with an imaginary candle flickering in your hand, you are drawn into the sometimes dark but also whimsical worlds evoked by the art. ‘ShadowDance’ is the first major exhibition about the use of shadows in art ever to be staged in the Netherlands.“
Thirty-six international operating artists
Vito Acconci (USA), Charles Atlas (USA), Dirck van Baburen († NL), Aram Bartholl (DE), Christian Boltanski (FR), Jim Campbell (USA), David Claerbout (BE), Haim Elmoznino (IL), Mounir Fatmi (MA), Ellis Gallagher (USA), Hanna von Goeler (DE), Samuel van Hoogstraten († NL), Mella Jaarsma (NL), William Kentridge (ZA), Ralph Kistler (DE), Germaine Kruip (NL), Couzijn van Leeuwen (NL), Gabriel Lester (NL), Zilla Leutenegger (CH), Mark Lewis (UK), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (MX), Wolfgang Munch & Kiyoshi Furukawa (DE & JP), Serge Onnen (FR/ NL), Lotte Reiniger († DE), Viviane Sassen (NL), Tomas Schats (NL), Hyo-Jung Seo (KR), Teresa Serrano (MX), Conrad Shawcross (UK), Sam Taylor-Wood (UK), The One Minutes (NL), Dimitri Vangrunderbeek (BE), Kara Walker (USA), Andy Warhol († USA), Diet Wiegman (NL).
