Exhibition at Lichthof A and at the DIGITAL ARTS department:
As part of the Angewandte Festival 2022, the DIGITAL ARTS department will be exhibiting under the title Re. Pairing. Future, projects for several spatial and situational settings. Current works by students reflect and shape the image of a fragile present. Certainties are eroding ever faster, while at the same time urgently needed transformations fail to materialise: Against this background, the projects deal with ecology, gender relations, resilience and healing, violence and truth.

Participants Lichthof:
Hanna Besenhard, Margo Dubovska, Ulrich Formann (Diplom), Jürgen Haghofer, Johannes Krumböck, Rita Kulyk, Rina Lipkind, the Futile Corporation, Verena Tscherner, Sarah Wilhelmy, Joanna Zabielska, Oskar Zickler

Exhibition at Seminarraum 8 (SR 8)

How can a “true conception of reality” be established in the current day, and how does it influence us as individuals and as a collective? How does truth affect where we are and the way we care for each other (as humans and non-humans)? Which personal tools or senses do we resort to in order to distinguish truth from falsity? Can technology be an asset in the pursuit and repair of truth, even if used within fictional scenarios? In Pursuit of Truth expresses a collective concern towards an excessive trust, dependency, and reliance on new technologies in the digital age by tackling some of its “troubles” such as — digital self, digital other, AI, and mobile tracking. By speculating on “true” presents and futures the exhibition suggests an artificial environment inhabited by fictional species and identities that coexist in a digital landscape evoking a post-climate reality.

The diverse works in this exhibition are the result of a collaborative process developed during the seminar Kollaboratives und disloziertes Arbeiten by Patrícia J. Reis at the DIGITAL ARTS department during the Winter and Summer Semester 21/22.

Decoding it the hard way
Performance with reactive object, 2021/22

Decoding it the hard way is a performance that depicts the interaction with an encrypted system. Two server cabinets are connected with 96 network cables, symbolising exposed connections. The performers try to decode this black box with brute force. The performance will be shown at the Angewandte Performance Lab as part of the festival. Fri, 01.07., 16:00
