Art & Post-digital Culture: Perspectives from the transmediale festival in Berlin

27 Mar '18 6.30 pm

An Ecosystem of Excess by Pinar Yoldas

Based on the thirty-year legacy of critical engagement with media art of the Berlin-based transmediale festival, this lecture makes a case for the values of speculative, interventionist practices in art and (post-) digital culture. Hybrid research and development processes that fuse art, science and technology are ever more in demand and are being connected to processes of value creation, which are determined by the drive to create data out of everything in order to implement fine-grained forms of measurement and quantification. As creativity becomes a highly sought after skill in an increasingly knowledge-driven economy, we need to ask ourselves whose and what innovation is eventually being produced by artists intersecting with industrial contexts, scientific knowledge paradigms and a financialised economy. The lecture will explore artistic work produced within the framework of a festival which explores transversal and critical imaginaries of what technological development might look like in this moment of a datafied reality and a general, post-digital condition of fusion between the analogue and the digital.

Kristoffer Gansing

Kristoffer Gansing is a Swedish curator, writer and researcher living in Berlin where he for the past seven years acts as the artistic director of the world-renowned transmediale festival for art and digital culture. Intersecting art, theory and technology, Gansing’s writing and curatorial work is a critical interrogation of our relation to technology from a post-digital perspective where digitisation has become part of everyday life. Gansing has contributed articles to academic volumes such as Place Studies in Art, Media, Science and Technology (WDG, 2009), Online Territories (Peter Lang, 2011) and journals such as The Fibreculture Journal. His PhD Transversal Media Practices (2013) dealt with how media archaeological art practices reconfigure linear conceptions of technological development and was published by Malmö University Press in 2013. With Ryan Bishop, Jussi Parikka and Elvia Wilk he edited across & beyond – a transmediale reader on Post-digital Practices, Concepts, and Institutions published by Sternberg Press in 2016. Prior to these activities, Kristoffer Gansing worked in between media research, art and curation, including the artist run TV channel tv-tv in Copenhagen and as co-director of the media art festival The Art of the Overhead, devoted to the near forgotten medium of the overhead projector.
