I will be givng a talk and workshop together with Cornelia Sollfrank, Morgane Stricot and Matthieu Vlaminck @ ZKM on the 13-14 Dec, 2017.
/*In «net.art generator«, not only do the technical problems that are relevant to other digital works become apparent, moreover, it also shows the problems associated with data policies and their hegemonies. The podium discussion brings these technical as well as political-economical associations to the fore, and attempts to develop strategies and tactics for the growth and effective conservation of digital works. During the workshop, initial ideas will be experimented with, perhaps social hacking or the development of a completely new API. Together with the artist, we want to discuss how the problems of propriety software could be solved, why and what it actually consists of, and which political, art-theoretical implications are concealed behind it.*/
I am going to organize a half day feminist coding workshop primarily for women, queers, LGBT, non-binaries and minorities who are interested in programming, exploring the intersection of art, language, technology and feminism. The workshop addresses computer code as a language that is designed for both human and machine reading. Participants will base on the artwork/digital poetry/composition ‘Vocable Code’ to learn basic coding concepts, and they will also explore code as expressive and aesthetic materials, such as computer code as poetic text that is performative and executable. Through thinking and discussing code and (non)binary logics, participants will incorporate textual materials, visual effects and recorded voices to produce their own web-based algorithmic vocable code.
