On the Basis of Face: Biometric Art as Critical Practice, its History and Politics

By Devon Schiller | Last summer in the UNESCO City of Media Arts, I attended the 40th Anniversary of the Ars Electronica Festival, the most time-honored media arts festival in the world, with its special theme ‘Out of the Box: The Midlife Crisis of the Digital Revolution’. As I nibbled on gummy candies that had been thrust upon me to promote the Sparkasse bank by teenage volunteers at cafés, I expressed myself with the muscular contraction mechanisms and skin appearance movements of my face.

A Different Kind of Grief: Learning to Love Our Networks in a Time of Disconnection

by Shane Finan | Have you ever seen a place transformed beyond recognition? Maybe a local lake dried up, or a treasured tree blew down, leaving an empty space where there was once a landmark. Places change. Landscapes transform because of human intervention and events like extreme weather. Not every change needs to be a loss. But some changes are devastating. Why do we grieve for some losses, and not others? |

TOD#33 Algorithmic Anxiety in Contemporary Art: A Kierkegaardian Inquiry into the Imaginary of Possibility

By Patricia de Vries | This book uses prominent artistic representations of facial recognition algorithms, trading algorithms, and search algorithms as the entry point into an exploration of the constituents of the anxieties braided around these algorithms. It proposes that the work of Søren Kierkegaard—one of the first theorists of anxiety—helps us to investigate and critically analyse the constituents of ‘algorithmic anxiety’. |

The Web. Coronavirus e web 2.0 : domande e risposte della filosofia

In questo saggio Lorenza Saettone tratta di distanziamento e di connessioni, di incoerenze e di strumenti con cui leggere noi stessi e la realtà che ci circonda. Le misure del lockdown chiamano a sé ulteriori separazioni, come il digital divide e la divisione metafisica tra virtuale e reale, un dualismo che però non è esistente nella pratica. Persino l’arte è distanziamento sotto molti aspetti: per esempio ci consente di trascendere le situazioni-limite, ma anche di guardare da un punto di vista più distante, e quindi più lucido, la realtà stessa. |

The Cloud Sailor Diary: Shanghai Life in the Time of Coronavirus

At that time, we were working in a small art gallery owned and controlled by a private company. We were placed in different positions, but both of us felt trapped and enslaved by the system. José went to India many times to learn wisdom from the wise religious thinkers. After returning, he quit smoking and became a vegetarian.

TOD#34 The Age of Total Images: Disappearance of a Subjective Viewpoint in Post-digital Photography

By Ana Peraica | In The Age of Total Images, art historian Ana Peraica focuses on the belief that the shape of the planet is two-dimensional which has been reawakened in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, and the ways in which these ‘flat Earth’ conspiracy theories are symptomatic of post-digital image culture. Such theories, proven to be false both in Antiquity and Modernity, but once held to be true in the Medieval Period, have influenced a return to a kind of ‘New Medievalism’. |

The Eternal Network: The Ends and Becomings of Network Culture

Kristoffer Gansing & Inga Luchs (eds) | Accompanying transmediale 2020 End to End’s exhibition ‘The Eternal Network’, this collection gathers contributions from artists, activists, and theorists who engage with the question of the network anew. In referencing Filliou’s eternal notion, the exhibition and publication project closes the loop between pre- and post-internet imaginaries, opening up possible futures with and beyond networks. This calls many of the collection’s authors to turn to instances of independent and critical net cultures as historical points of inspiration for rethinking, reforming, or refuting networks in the present. |

Deep Pockets #3 Scenes of Independence: Cultural Ruptures in Zagreb (1991-2019)

By Sepp Eckenhaussen | After the violent disintegration of Yugoslavia, a flourishing cultural scene was established in Croatia’s capital Zagreb. The scene calls itself: independent culture. In this book, Sepp Eckenhaussen explores the history of Zagreb’s independent culture through three questions: How were independent cultures born? To whom do they belong? And what is the independence in independent culture? The result is a genealogy, a personal travel log, a mapping of cores of criticality, a search for futurologies, and a theory of the scene. Once again, it turns out that localist perspectives have become urgent to culture. The untranslatability of the local term ‘independent culture’ makes it hard for the outsider to get a thorough understanding of it. But it also makes the term into a crystal of significance and a catalyst of meaning-making towards a theory of independent culture. |

While these developments are inseparable from the advent of digital technology, they have a long history. The authors trace the roots of this thought back to the dawn of philosophy.

At this moment design registers its redundancy: our products, environments and services have been comprehensively improved. Everything has been designed to perfection and is under a permanent upgrade regime. Within such a paradigm, design is enmeshed with the capitalist logic of reproduction.

TOD #28: Communities at a Crossroads

Author: Annalisa Pelizza How to conceptualize online sociability in the 21st century? To answer this question, Communities at a Crossroads looks back at the mid-2000s. With the burst of the creative-entrepreneur alliance, the territorialisation of the internet and the commercialization of interpersonal ties, that period constituted a turning point for digital communitarian cultures. Many of the techno-libertarian culture’s utopias underpinning the ideas for online sociability faced systematic counter evidence. This change in paradigm has still consequences today. Avoiding both empty invocations of community and swift conclusions of doom, Annalisa Pelizza investigates the theories of actions that have underpinned the development of techno-social digital assemblages after the ‘golden age’ of online communities. |
