Shared Matters

Opening: 1st of April 2017, 7pm

Dataflow and BioArt courses at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar come together to showcase and test drive their explorations dealing with networking and symbiosis, while touching upon an understanding of aesthetics and the environment that goes beyond the human sphere. Loosely connected to Bruno Latour’s actor-network-theory and Donna Haraway’s symbiotic kin-making, these experiments incorporate real-time computer interfaces using video, sound and movement, as well as intra- and interspecies interaction between bacteria, protists and fungi.

The Pacific Wall

The Pacific Wall.
Artistic strategies between Bauhaus and Silicon Valley
Opening 24th March at 7pm

After its continuous expansion towards the West, the tidal wave of European modernism broke at the “Pacific Wall” (Lyotard), returning as the fractured post-modernism of computerized society. Today, the “disruptive” technologies of Silicon Valley mark the latest result of this break, which left us inhabitants of a world that is so fundamentally computerized some call it “post-digital.” While the political organization of this world is currently being renegotiated, one answer to its complexities to some seems to be the construction of actual walls.
