Der Offene Mund: Performing with Code II SoSe23

Der Offene Mund is a series of events at HFBK with students and invited guests, a room for performance, the moving image, sound, experimentation and socialization, initiated by Prof. Annika Larsson. Some of the events are done in the frame of the artistic research project Non-knowledge, Laughter & The Moving Image, a project done in collaboration with HFBK Hamburg and RIA Stockholm with financial support from The Swedish Research Council.

A film about 1960s avant-garde music and film, the early history of microcomputers and the open questions of 21st century science.
It is also a portrait of the nuclear physicist/artist Erkki Kurenniemi (b. 1941), one of the unsung pioneers of early electronic art. Kurenniemi has been exploring the potential of virtual reality and interactive computer art in diverse projects since the early 1960s. //

18 April 2023 11:00-13:00 Room 11 (Le) Shintaro Miyazaki: Digitalität Tanzen

Shintaro Miyazaki, DIGITALITÄT TANZEN! Über Commoning & Computing (PDF) // CTM 2020: Shintaro Miyazaki, Don’t Forget to Change The Beat From Time To Time—About Counter-Raving // Shintaro Miyazaki, Counter-Algorhythmics as Prefigurative Dances of Commonism (ENG) // Shintaro Miyazaki website //

"With the notion of algorhythm, I intended to emphasize both the rhythmic mode algorithms operate in, and their dirtiness; not so much in a socio-techno-political meaning that came later, but foremost as a prioritization of the material and physical over the symbolic and mathematical. This was also a move to differentiate synchronized exactness and full control from the slightly uncontrollable real and its inclination to the impure. " Shintaro Miyazaki
