< 12-14.09 > reSource 006 : Overflow, at Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien + Mindpirates E.V., Berlin

” reSource transmedial culture berlin is the new year-round initiative of transmediale festival, in partnership with CTM/DISK, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien and the Post-Media Lab (Leuphana University of Lüneburg). The reSource is a project of networking, a work in progress based on the inter-connection of genres and practices, which aims to create occasions of sharing and reflections by bringing together communities and individuals who work critically with art, technology, politics and identity. The reSource programme is curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli.”

( added ) Topic: “In the current development of digital culture we are experiencing an “overflow condition”, where more information is being transmitted than machines can process, and humans can handle. This need for accumulation make us part of a constant flow of data, so big and complex that it becomes impossible to analyse and to filter. … How do we find conscious ways of being active/activists, both in the digital and the physical sphere, without just becoming part of a system of abundant accumulation, or data overflow? Working on both a local and international level, this event highlights various strategies for rethinking our digital and physical spaces, and imagining both a more sustainable and conscious online/offline presence by bringing together artists, activists and cultural producers active in Berlin and beyond. “

Includes an Open Debate of local arts+praxis activators from projects Art Laboratory Berlin, XLterrestrials + CiTiZEN KiNO,  Supermarkt, Gegen, Panke, and Liebig12.


< 6-8.09 > WestTurm Pavilion at Teufelsberg Field Station, Berlin

We are in discussions w/ the Westturm project curator to present a very special version of CiTiZEN KiNO #28 ( v.5 ) – Geodesic Space-Time-Body on Sat. and/or Sun., stay tune for details.

::: added: Sunday around 17h is a reasonable guess, but we will have to improvise with the scheduling… check back here for any updates ! ::::

This is a timely spot to discuss Buckminster Fuller’s humanitarian motivations for the dome design and the military industrial complex useage as the infamous spy station / listening post. And will also expand on our XLt theories regarding the re-embodiment of information.

How do we creatively transform the current dominant path of corporate-capture ‘technopia’ toward more positive + grounded social interactions, i.e. community empowerment.

There’s also a list of great artists presenting at the Teufelsberg event, and a group called ClusterBombc ( on twitter ) giving unusual tours of the station all weekend !!!
