WRO 2019 WEB CATALOGUE / EMAP group show 2019

The 18th Media Art Biennale WRO 2019 under the self-proclaimed title HUMAN ASPECT took place in Wrocław (Poland) from May till December 2019. The festival opened the perspective of discussing the new reality of the uncertain contact between technological and human matter and how artists recognize this state of art. Today, this perspective has significantly expanded, and the works and performances presented at the WRO 2019 exhibitions have gained new relevance and context. A comprehensive catalogue of the Biennale events presents a survey of exhibits, events, thematic discussions, texts and critical analyses, complete with an abundant collection of video resources, which flesh out and highlight the meanings of the eponymous phrase.

The new catalogue conveys the entanglements of the human as both the creator and the recipient in an unpredictable network of interpenetrating interactions, in artistic representations which make it possible to experience and understand these processes. 

EMAP artists and works presented during the WRO 2019:
Marco Barotti (IT), Clams, installation, 2019
Robertina Šebjanič (SI), Gjino Šutić (HR), aqua_forensic, installation, 2018
Anna Dumitriu (GB), Alex May (GB), Archaeabot: A Post Singularity and Post Climate Change Life-form, installation, 2018
Taavi Suisalu (EE), Waiting for the Light, installation, 2018
Katrin Hochschuh (DE), Adam Donovan (AU), Empathy Swarm, performative installation, 2018
Chloé Galibert-Laîné (FR), Kevin B. Lee (US), BOTTLED SONGS 3 & 4, installation, 2018

 

 

 

Kat Austen @ ArtLaboratoryBerlin online talk

Kat Austen and Nana MacLean discuss the coexistence of microplastics in the environment and what it means for nature and ourselves. During this online talk, they will invite your minds to go visiting the plastisphere as artists, chemists and biologists, trees and bacteria, humans and particles – negotiating together a plan of coexistence with microplastics on this planet.

Wednesday 22 April 2020 from 5:30-7:00 pm
The event will be streamed live on this webpage: http://www.artlaboratory-berlin.org/html/eng-event-54.htm
A limited number of participants can take part via Zoom. To register please send an email and short description of why you would like to attend to: register@artlaboratory-berlin.org

  • Myriad (Tulips) © Anna Ridler

Anna Ridler will offer a series of photographic photos: Myriad (Tulips), an installation made up of 10,000 polaroid photos of Dutch tulips. These images become a "data set" which will allow to train an algorithm so that it "learns," just like artificial intelligence. Myriad (Tulips) has been realised within the EMAP/EMARE grant 2018 at Impakt and will be presented at Festival Art Souterrain 2020 from Feb 29 until March 22.

Disnovation.org will present http://predictiveartbot.com 29th feb (20:00) and 22nd march (21:00).

Anna Ridler Solo Exhibition @ Aksioma, Ljubljana

The Abstraction of Nature, a solo exhibition by EMARE alumni Anna Ridler will be shown at Aksioma in Ljubljana 19 February – 18 March, 2020.

“Tulip Mania meant that the order of the stock market was introduced into the order of nature. The tulip began to lose the properties and charms of a flower: it grew pale, lost its colours and shapes, became an abstraction, a name, a symbol interchangeable with a certain amount of money.” – Zbigniew Herbert.

PROFILING THE PROFILERS @ 26th Biennial of Design, Ljubljana

Disnovation.org will participate with ONLINE CULTURE WARS and PROFILING THE PROFILERS in the exhibition Common Knowledge to the 26th Biennial of Design, Ljubljana.
The exhibition opens 16 January 2020 at 18:00.

The map Online Culture Wars is an overlay of hundreds of politicised memes, along with influential political figures and symbols. It is designed as a discussion starter, intended to visualise and contextualise the ongoing online culture wars, and some of the main political references, actors and influencers. From Twitter to Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, Gab or 4chan, one of the by-products of online culture wars is the over-politicisation of seemingly mundane topics, products, practices and cultural elements. In recent years, online cultures have been subjected to a growing polarisation, politicisation and radicalisation, influenced by numerous actors and magnified by social networks. This cartography offers a representation of online ideological and political frictions, integrated into the visual system of a Political Compass meme.

Based on state of the art big data analytics techniques, PROFILING THE PROFILERS generates a series of highly detailed digital profiles of big tech companies – ie. psychological, cultural and political profiles – similar to the ones constantly generated for each user by these very same companies. In other words, this algorithm performs a sousveillance of big tech companies using their own tools.

no bodies welcome | all bodies welcome @ transmediale, E2E

Aay Liparoto with HOT BODIES - CHOIR present no bodies welcome | all bodies welcome at transmediale 2020 within the group exhibition The Eternal Network, opening 28th Jan:

In their work, Aay Liparoto acknowledges our interdependence with technology for information, work, sex, entertainment, socialising, healthcare and the crossovers in between. What does this web of interdependence mean for queer feminist bodies, which rely more heavily on DIY information exchange? Housed in a ‘void pod’, the speculative choir piece presented here, is created through workshops with HOT BODIES – CHOIR a queer, LGBTIEA+ and feminist choir based in Brussels. Cocooned with light and sound, their voices invite us to reflect and question the power and politics of the spaces we participate in online and the behaviour of ourselves and others.

The artwork has been informed by Liparoto’s ongoing research and evolution of the Not Found On wiki—. This is an online project co-created through a series of workshops with, by and for feminist queer bodies to record and exchange knowledge. The adjoining publication-  Everything you own you’ve had to build on stolen ground - chronicles the collective process and thinking behind used in Include your community Workshops.
