NODE17 Forum for Digital Arts – Designing Hope

26.06. – 02.07.2017

Who shapes our hopes today? What are the means used to translate our fears and desires into images that incite feelings of hope? What role does the design of technological infrastructures play?

Between collective hopes for a peaceful life in the Global Village on the one hand, and feelings of powerlessness in the face of an ever more complex digitized world on the other, NODE17 Designing Hope sets out to discuss the responsibility and potential of technology and design practices.

NODE17 Forum for Digital Arts – Designing Hope was the fith edition of the biennial festival for arts, design and creative coding in Frankfurt/Main.

A/D/A – Tomorrow’s Utopias for Today’s Citizens

– Utopien für Stadtmenschen von Heute

Ein Workshop-Festival auf St. Pauli zur kreativen Rückeroberung des Stadtraumes.
Let’s outsmart the city!

25.08. – 28.08.2016

“In einem Zeitalter der fortgeschrittenen Technik ist Ineffizienz die Sünde wider den Heiligen Geist” (A. Huxley) und scheinbar wider der digitalen Agenda einer wirklich zukunftsfähigen Stadt.
Die smarte Stadt beobachtet unsere Bewegungen, analysiert uns, regelt uns und denkt ein paar Schritte voraus. Wir Metropolenbewohner*innen dürfen uns heute schon auf Straßen freuen, die uns lenken und staulos ins Büro chauffieren. Stadtkinder kommen ungebremst ins Grüne und haben mehr Freizeit zum Flanieren. Per Hamburg-App melden wir im Vorbeigehen schnell einen demolierten Mülleimer und mit jeder gewonnenen Minute steigern wir nebenbei das Bruttoinlandsprodukt. Willkommen in der smarten neuen Stadt!

In sieben Workshops von Künstler*innen für Menschen jeden Alters entwickeln wir Zukunftsszenarien für unsere Stadt und wenden digitale und analoge Technologien an, um das Leben in der Stadt neu zu denken. Wir entwerfen smarte Fashion für modebewusste Städter*innen, tricksen Überwachungskameras aus oder entwickeln aus 100 spekulativen Absurditäten wirklich hilfreiche Prototypen für Alltag und Ausnahmezustand. Let’s outsmart the city!


Jeremy Bailey, Benjamin van Bebber, Jessica Broscheit, Adam Harvey,
Kati Hyyppä, Filomena Krause, Mika Satomi (Kobakant) und Claudius Schulze.

A/D/A schließt sich außerdem an den Themenschwerpunkt DATAPOLITICS des Internationalen Sommerfestivals Kampnagel an. Weitere Informationen zum Programm unter

A/D/A ist ein Format von Alexandra Waligorski & Jeanne Charlotte Vogt (NODE Forum for Digital Arts) und Axel Sylvester (Fab Lab Fabulous St. Pauli). In Kooperation mit dem Internationalen Sommerfestival Kampnagel, dem Creative Space der HAW, der Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, der Hamburg Media School und dem Künstlerhaus FAKTOR.
Gefördert durch die Kulturbehörde der Stadt Hamburg.



Creative Technologies Meetup HH

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.

Next dates:
12/04/2016 – 19:30h at Künstlerhaus FAKTOR
10/05/2016 – 19:30h at FabLab Fabulous St. Pauli
14/06/2016 – 19:30 at Künstlerhaus FAKTOR
12/07/2016 – Summerbreak
09/08/2016 – venue tba!

If you want to take part, join us on facebook or write me a message!

Goethe Institute MOOC „Managing the Arts“ 2016

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.

NODE+CODE lectures 2015

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 9/10 with Andi Otto (Springintgut) and 3Dmin at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm (16.11.2015)

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.

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.

April 27th – May 3rd, 2015 / Naxoshalle / Mousonturm / Frankfurt

Social Media Week Hamburg

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.
