THE VOID T.V.  | Tactical Video #3

Tactical Video (T.V.) is a hybrid event and publication series by THE VOID, a practice-based research project of the Institute of Network Cultures. ​​​​​​​

Inspired by the production and distribution methods of television, with THE VOID T.V. we are exploring the possibilities of online video streaming to create regular events. Rather than depicting events, with this series of broadcasts THE VOID will manufacture events. Bringing back the ambitions of tactical media, during these broadcasts video becomes a space for gathering, making alliances, conspiring, and creating networks of solidarity. This hybrid space is open for monthly collaborations with activists, researchers, and artists interested in exploring the tactical possibilities of video.

Join us for this third episode online or physically at the HvA TV Studio-2 (Rhijnspoorplein 1, 1091GC Amsterdam) on Friday May 24, 14:30.

Gabriel Pereira: Assistant Professor in AI & Digital Culture at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), based at the Media Studies department and the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) and member of the Tierra Común Network. His main research interest is the critical study of data and algorithms, especially as they intersect with vision/images/surveillance.

Alina Lupu: Born and raised in Romania, Alina works as a writer and post-conceptual artist in Amsterdam.  She is a general board member of Platform BK, an organisation that researches the role of art in society and advocates for a better art policy. She is also a student on the Master programme Photography and Society at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague, where she is currently part of the student movement calling for disclosure and divestment of ties with Israeli academic institutions.

Jamil Fiorino-Habib: Lecturer in Media & Culture at the University of Amsterdam, specializing in film studies and media aesthetics. Having recently obtained his rMA in Media Studies from UvA, Jamil’s current research projects elaborate on his interests in political subjectivity, identity, and play, incorporating elements of queer theory and critical theory to explore the evolving boundaries of digital media culture. Making use of unique transdisciplinary pedagogies, Jamil’s work explores the intersections of pop culture and sub-culture, the hegemonic and the subversive, and the impacts of cultural imperialism in a globalized media landscape. In tandem with his academic research, Jamil also participates in a variety of grassroots community-centred collectives within the Netherlands, where he helps strategize and develop plans in pursuit of radical system change.

Radu-Mihai Tănasă:  is an artist working with themes of migrant identity, cultural dysphoria, personal experience, and predominantly, the eastern European masculine; exploring the aftermaths of a ’90s / ’00s childhood in (mainly) urban Romania and the surrounding area. Radu focuses on sounds, visuals, and imagery of eastern European traditions and the local music genre of turbo-folk, with a focus on the Romanian version; otherwise known as manele. This is part of his long-term visual research of cultural dysphoria, a phenomena in which one individual has a disconnect between their own perception of their culture and the actual way in which said culture is being perceived by the other.

Ruxandra Mărgineanu: is a graphic designer and artist. Her personal history plays a central role in her work as she develop narratives both from memories and observation, deeply rooted in the culture and aesthetics of Romania during and after the communist regime. As an emerging artist, Ruxandra is looking to explore various mediums, currently taking an interest in traditional animation and typography, looking to incorporate Eastern European elements into a different approach than how this space has been perceived and depicted through doomer aesthetics. Ruxandra and Radu are both founders of apartament 6, an artist collective whose focus is on creating critical and reflective art regarding the current living conditions of young emerging artists from Romania.

Ray Dolistay is a multidisciplinary digital artist and researcher. Currently, they are doing their Research Master’s in Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam. In their work, they investigate post-internet mythologies and radical queer embodiment in virtual spaces, that undermine capitalist gender architecture on/offline. Through their practice, they look into ways in which digital 3D imaginaries can queer the landscape of contemporary platforms, by often employing sound and immersive 3D environments.
