• European Media Art Festival Osnabrück – tour with people from Creative Technologies Meetup on April 24th, 2016
Together with Alexandra Waligorski and Fab Lab Fabulous St. Pauli, Hamburg, member Axel Sylvester, we have initiated a monthly, informal meetup series for people who engage in arts, design, and technology and who are interested in its intersections.
Artists, researchers, curators, designers or engineers present their work, share their present research and problems and look for potential collaborators.
The idea is to create a place for interdisciplinary exchange on this upcoming topic which is still often considered a nerdy niche topic although being interwoven with our everyday lives – and then there is beer, food and friendly people.
12/04/2016 – 19:30h at Künstlerhaus FAKTOR

The „Managing the Arts“ online course designed by Leuphana University for Goethe Institute will be tackling the task of managing the arts in times of social and digital transition on a broad scale. It is based on a variety of very interesting case studies from BACC Bankok to HAU Berlin. I will be part of the mentor team and join the discussions, idea development and collaborative learning process.

I am very much looking forward to the following NODE+CODE editions 7-10, where we will be getting back to the NODE15 research topic „the informed body“. With a series of very interesting artists, we will be talking about techniques of disguise in times of digital surveillance and the relation between technology and the body in music making. The artists will perform and give insights into their practice.
NODE+CODE 7 with Max Dovey at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm (19.10.2015)
NODE+CODE 8 with Adam Harvey at basis Frankfurt (09.11.2015)
NODE+CODE is an initiative by Processing Frankfurt and NODE Forum for Digital Arts, supported by Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft and the professorship for visual culture (Prof. Dr. Verena Kuni) of the Goethe University Frankfurt.
Are you an artist working creatively with code and digital media with an interest in movement? Then come join the Motion Bank team and ITP/ NYU-Tisch for the 4th Choreographic Coding Lab where movement hackers and practitioners will be gathering to discuss and work on projects, ideas and challenges in a peer-to-peer setting.
The 5th edition will take place at UCLA, 14th-19th September 2015!
April 27th – May 3rd, 2015

NODE15 is dedicated to the negotiation of the human body throughout current technological developments and how this is being expressed in our present projects; utopias; and fictions. We will reflect on processes of embodiment; the integral role of the body in perception and interaction; as location of implicit knowledge; and as a tool we constantly try to extend and optimize.
When observing recent design developments we may assume that all is directed to an ideal state of complete seamlessness. We observe the virtualisation and dematerialisation of anything that is bound to decay. Design is focussed on the creation of intelligent surroundings which free us from the necessity of physical effort.
Critical tasks such as health and mental care are being undertaken by robots while wars are being fought by remotely controlled drones. Roles formerly performed by human beings have undergone a process of disembodiment. We have reached a critical point and have to wonder if this process has started to run independently from actual human needs and nature. And in fact, we find spheres in which the human body slowly reclaims the attention it deserves. NODE15 focuses on this revival of the body.
The festival will address the relation of flesh and consciousness in the interdependent evolution of humankind and technology. It starts from the gradual incorporation of instruments and processes into the body. Gadgets and algorithms optimize our daily life and virtual reality devices try to connect our physical bodies to potentially any virtual space and time.
NODE15 invites projects that investigate how these processes shape our perception and consciousness; how they alter communication and interaction with humans or machines. Coders, artists, scientists and developers will quarrel with the question, which significance to give to our flesh and shell called body.

February 27th, 2015 – Thalia Theater – Alexandra Waligorski & Jeanne Charlotte Vogt
Auch im Kunst- und Kulturbereich sind Social Media und digitale Technologien längst angekommen. Sie sind Mittel der Kunst- und Kulturvermittlung, Marketingkanal für einen notorisch unterfinanzierten Bereich und müssen gleichzeitig kritischer Diskussionsgegenstand bleiben. Ausgehend von unserer kuratorischen Arbeit für das NODE Forum for Digital Arts stellen wir uns der Frage, wie wir mit ihrer Wirkung auf die Gesellschaft, ihrem Traktieren unserer sozialen Umwelt und ihren Potenzialen für unseren professionellen Alltag in Kulturorganisationen umgehen wollen.
Was bedeutet es als Forum für Digitale Kultur diese Medien zu reflektieren und zu vermitteln?
Welche neuen Vermittlungsformate und Kurationsmöglichkeiten gibt es, um mit den unterschiedlichen medialen Angeboten zu arbeiten, sie aber gleichzeitig auch zu thematisieren? Welche digitalen Orte für die Repräsentation von Kultur gibt es? Anhand von Beispielen aus unserer eigenen Arbeit, künstlerischen Positionen und Kulturorganisationen beleuchten wir die Herausforderungen für Kunst und Kultur im Digitalen.
