Weise 7 invites the audience to cast off their old perceptions of the immateriality of digital technologies. A closer examination of the specific properties of these technologies can lead to a new understanding of artistic and technological practices.
With a series of mini-workshops, installations and presentations, held during “transmediale 2012: in/compatible”, Weise 7 presents four in/compatible topics which range from the geo-strategic implications of network technologies to the enjoyment of outdated technology. After the transmediale, the workshops will continue in the Weise 7 studio.
Weise 7 is a studio in Weisestraße in Neukölln, which is jointly run by technicians and artists. They include Servando Barreiro (ES), Brendan Howell (US), Julian Oliver (NZ), Gordan Savicic (AT), Bengt Sjölén (SE), Danja Vasiliev (RU).
The curator of “Labor Berlin 8” is Kristoffer Gansing (SE).
