#creatingcommons

This exhibition brings together 18 practices through which artists articulate their own forms of (digital) commons. From online archives, to digital tools/infrastructure and educational formats, the projects envision a (post-)digital culture in which notions of collaboration, free access to knowledge, sustainable use of shared resources and data privacy are central. For the exhibition, artists have developed a SCORE relating to their practice.

#creatingcommons

Since the early days of the Web, Wiki software plays a crucial role in the collaborative formation and maintenance of knowledge resources. Its basic principles include that (authorized) people can read, change and contribute content and materials, that all changes are transparent (through versioning), and that the basic technique of linking allows for creating new relationships and thus build new systems of meaning.
Based on Wiki software, the project monoskop.org has grown into a major cultural resource over the last decade. It evolved from linking and contextualizing information on Central and Eastern European experimental and media arts to host relevant materials, such as books, texts, documents and media files, and thus became a publishing initiative in its own right.
Taking his own work as founder and main editor of the site as a starting point, Dušan Barok will conduct a workshop exploring the theoretical and practical potential of wikis to support long-term collaborative projects and foster the aesthetics of linking.
This workshop is for cultural producers interested in exploring the potential of wikis to organize heterogeneous materials in their own fields of practice. No special technical skills are necessary to participate, please bring your own laptop.

21:00 Film as Digital Object
Sebastian Lütgert im Gespräch mit Cornelia Lund
When films enter the database 0xDB(1) and its underlying software pan.do/ra(2), they become digital objects. As such, they form part of a network of interrelated elements that constitute the archival environment and, at the same time, point beyond it. How does this new environment affect our way of dealing with moving images? How does it affect the films and their aesthetics to be embedded in a digital framework of paratexutal elements? And how do the films, in turn, influence this framework? What does it mean when the films are shown in the context of a Pirate Cinema(3) screening? And ultimately: how does this change not only the way we see the films, but also cinema itself? (1) 0xdb.org (2) pan.do/ra (3) piratecinema.org
22:00 Screening Pirate Cinema
Since its inception in 2004, Pirate Cinema has proposed an ongoing series of works, materials and practices that defy the proprietary logic of cinema. For this event, we have collected a number of short outtakes that demonstrate the potential of screening entire archives instead of films, let us inspect the aesthetics of digital deconstruction and probe the narrative promises of recombinatory cinema.

#creatingcommons

Launched in 2007, the film database 0xDB has steadily grown to become one of the largest online movie archives in the world. In this workshop, we're going to explore some of the new forms of research and creation that it allows us to practice: navigating large amounts of footage following the visual cues given by timelines, and along location metadata displayed on a map, using full text search in time-based annotations to create new edits of existing material, and automating all of the above with the built-in API.

Limited number of participants. Pls register with workshop@netzkunst.berlin

#creatingcommons

This talk examines several feminist concepts that are relevant for envisioning the (digital) commons. What they share is an understanding of knowledge as that which occurs by sustaining relational webs and ongoing relays, rather than as the endpoint of linear progressions.

I discuss firstly Ursula Le Guin’s The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction (1986), in which she urges that the first piece of technology was not a weapon but a bag for carrying seeds, asserting that the function of technology is not resolution but continuing process. Donna Haraway’s concept of “string figures” builds further on Le Guin by proposing how distributed forms of access to and dissemination of knowledge can give rise to collective agency, while Karen Barad’s diffractive methodology contributes to envisioning the commons as something that necessarily involves a constant transformation of knowledge – regarding both the objects of enquiry and the apparatus (resources, discourses) through which they are viewed. This is relevant for addressing how the commons can produce situated knowledges (Haraway) and understanding how its collective nature only seemingly suggests that it conflicts with the partial positionings of individuals within a collective.

Aiming to relinquish authorial control at least in part, the talk integrates a collectively produced layer of hypermedia in the hope of forming a thick web of bonds, associations and connections with other agents in the exhibition.

Moments of Autonomy
SAT 12 October 2019, Workshop, 11am–5pm

#creatingcommons

Think tank with Andrea Hubin (Kunsthalle Wien/Community College), Shusha Niederberger (Haus für elektronische Künste, Basel), Peggy Pierrot (e.r.g Brussels), Daphne Dragona (transmediale), Safa Ghnaim (tactical tech), Stefanie Wuschitz (Mz* Baltazar's Laboratory, Vienna) and others.

(Internal) workshop in Berlin to discuss technofeminist educational strategies for female/feminist/queer (open to all genders) based on critical pedagogy as well as feminist pedagogy, framed by the larger techno-political context, our starting points are own experiences in the field as practitioners, users and teachers.

Participation possible on request: workshop@netzkunst.berlin

Guided by questions such as:

„What concepts of KNOWLEDGE inform our technofeminist thinking and practice?“,
„How much do we have to KNOW in order to be able to take an emancipated position?“,
„What is the role of AFFECT in our daily handling of technology?“
„To what extent can the principles of open source culture be an inspiration for educational projects?"
„What do we need in order to build communality in and for the technofeminist struggle? (local/global)?“
“What are methods to transform what has been learned into collective agency and empowering strategies for desired change?"

We are planning to spend one day together in Berlin at panke.gallery (Saturday, 12th of October 2019,11:00am-5.00pm)

to exchange experiences, compare methodologies, develop strategies, inspire each other, and think about taking the next steps together…
… maybe in form of a manifesto, a curriculum, a book, a conference, a research project… We will see what is most suitable and also feasible.
