Home Smart Home

8. March – 21. April 2024
Einzelausstellung, Kunstverein Rotenburg, Rotenburg

For the exhibition „Home Smart Home,“ Aram Bartholl equips the tower of the Kunstverein Rotenburg with a variety of home surveillance cameras. In addition to hidden cameras, known as „Nanny Cams,“ Bartholl also experiments with 360° „Lightbulb“ cameras equipped with lights and speakers. The market for surveillance cameras in the private sphere has grown tremendously in recent years. The desire for control over one’s own private space is reflected in this development and is part of the digitally driven society marked by a loss of trust.

The Art Tower, 4 Floors – 122 Steps – 24 m.
Originally slated for demolition in the mid-90s to make way for parking space for the „Ronolulu“ leisure pool, the disused fire brigade water tower was on the chopping block. However, Peter Möhl, the former managing director of the municipal utilities and thus the owner of the tower, envisioned a meaningful repurposing. Together with the vice chairman of the Art Association, architect Jürgen Lohmann, the idea was born to convert the tower into a gallery.

Decoding the Black Box

27. January – 2. June 2024
Gruppenausstellung, Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen, Sindelfingen

Die Ausstellung Decoding the Black Box bringt Künstlerinnen und Künstler zusammen, die Licht in diesen dunklen Raum und die Prozesse werfen, die sich in ihm ereignen. Sie legen dabei nicht nur die Funktionsweisen digitaler Technologien wie beispielsweise von künstlicher Intelligenz offen, sondern visualisieren zugleich die Auswirkungen, die sie auf unsere Wahrnehmung von Realität und unser In-der-Welt-Sein haben. Während sie die ökonomischen und machtpolitischen Strukturen der digitalen Technologien und insbesondere des Internets transparent machen, zeigen sie Gegenentwürfe für eine dezentralisierte, humanere und demokratischere Nutzung ebendieser auf.

Curated by Aram Bartholl & Socrates Stamatatos

Speed Show lands in Greece, the country of souvlaki, the sun (yes we can claim that they originated a celestial body), ouzo, feta, an enormous financial debt. Currently, Greece is also trending for all the wrong reasons namely, gentrification, queerphobia, state crimes and more dystopic incidents.
As 2024 unfolds, we find ourselves amidst a whirlwind of confusion, bombarded with a cacophony of online horrors to consume, an attention span further abbreviated by TikTok’s algorithm and the barrage of incoming stitches.

Stitches Incoming serve as a conduit for creators to engage and converse, traversing from one topic to the next. They have evolved into a new social fabric, weaving connections within an ever-shifting digital and physical landscape while also serving as a testament to personal and collective traumas, both past and present.

What unites the participating digital artists? Perhaps everything and nothing simultaneously… Departing from the traditional Speed Show setup, where artworks are carefully stacked inside internet cafe computers, and drawing inspiration from the structure of TikTok stitches, each piece seems to propel the conversation forward, or perhaps uses the next as a springboard for its own narrative.

Stitch this and stitch that, we have everything you ever wanted (maybe) ! Are we stuck in an infinite loop of sh*tposting, valuable content, the highlight of social issues, personal and interpersonal experiences?
Maybe! Come and find out…

How to pass a DNS blacklist filter in 27 sec.

The internet had a bad day …

April 18, 2009


What a black friday for the internet. The anti censorship demonstration in the morning was still some fun. All about the family-minister-‚anti child porn‘-DNS-filter-ISP-voluntary-agreement at Matejunkie or in Googlenglish. I hope that politics won’t turn this into a law. #zensurusla flickr stream.
At the same time the Pirate Bay verdict was delivered. It is pretty obvious that the film/music industry got their news headline „File sharing pirates go to prison!“. That’s all they wanted! It’s quite interesting to look at some detailes here and that the case will go in revision of course. Check the TPB press conference from the same day here.
And on top of that all these bad news my site was down half a day due to Hosteurope web hoster trouble. And the same thing is still true for Dreamhost and our fffff.at site!! What’s going on internet ?!? Don’t you feel well? Fever? Should we talk? Anything I should know? Just relax. I am sure it’s gonna be alright. Your Selbstheilungskräfte are very good!

Herdict Web

März 3, 2009


Herdict Web is a very usefull anti censorship crowd sourcing platform. Download the Firefox addon and report sites you can or can’t reach. Check the statistics, a world map will show you which countries block which sites and which ISPs within one country block a certain page. Chinachannel was great fun. This is serious shit!
