This year’s annual new media festival in Berlin featured reSource a new initiative of transmediale. Isolation and Empowerment after Web 2.0 segment featured work that explores the tensions of hierarchical control and the increasing connectivity and virtualisation of our social relationships by exposing the possible scenarios of networked dystopias, and asked its audience to rethink critical strategies while proposing new paths for political actions (both artistic and hacktivist) based on the recognition of the power of distributed subjectivities.
Salvatrice Settis and I were aptly placed together on the panel Mobilizing the Unrepresentable. Read a review by Roberta Bulani of the reSource event here. In addition to the presenting Interpelled more hypersonic sound experiments also took place inside the Haus der Kulturen der Welt!Will upload video documentation once transmediale releases it. If anyone has documentation of the event or experiments – please contact me – thanks!
