For transmediale 2015, I was invited to co-curate the exhibition with Robert Sakrowski, the conference with Kristoffer Gansing and I also initiated the Foyer Program.
What do the futures of work, play and life look like through the black mirror of data? How will our quantified lives unfold? transmediale 2015 looked at how we make sense of a culture dependent on measurement and automation procedures, and how to act with autonomy within such a culture. The festival presented artistic responses and speculative scenarios as well as critical thinking on processes of gamification, quantification, ubiquitous networking and algorithmic control and their ways of making the spheres of everyday life, work and play increasingly indistinguishable. transmediale offered a diverse international programme of exhibitions, screenings, conference events, workshops and performances with participants from many different disciplines.
