Berlinale Diagonals: Beyond The Anthro-Obscene


Nope, we’re not interested in venturing into the oozing, festering Berlinale Festival Spectacles vortex this year…

<26.02> CiTiZEN KiNO#35 : Beyond the Anthro-Obscene at Panke, Berlin

date+time: 26-02-2014 – Wed. 21:ooh
location:  @Panke, Gerichtstr.23 – Berlin
title: CiTiZEN KiNO #35
subtitle:  Beyond the Planet of the Anthro-Obscene
people:  XLt, dr.Podinski + u + special guests

admission: 3 – 5 euros … or more?… for active supporters !

( clarity via Sven, Thx! :)

Added: reSource meeting at 18:30, prior to the C-KiNO show. All citizens welcome ! More iNfo here.

We’ll be looking for ways to evacuate the screens, and re-embody the struggles, as we pick out some highlights – and perhaps low-lights – from this year’s Transmediale Festival…

… And explore possible ways to build upon The Re:source Network ( also related to the TBA Berlin project ) which began over two years ago, as an initiative by Tatiana Bazzichelli ( author of Network Disruption ) to create year round Transmediale events, and which simultaneously spored communications among local Berlin galeries and initiatives like Panke, Art Laboratory Berlin, Supermarkt, Liebig 12 and many others to construct a hub for arts + technology activities in Berlin.

XLterrestrials got involved and have been pushing for an alliance of a somewhat different kind… One which could be capable of implementing new kinds of tactical and creative applications to situations we are all facing in the messy and precarious 21st century territories.

We’ll address, push further, and deconstruct arising terms and concepts from TM#14, such as Anthro-Obscene ( or the more academicly termed Anthropobscene – originally from Jussi Parikka ?), Post-Digital Colonialism, Techno-Shamanism and more…

Note: There is a proposal for an actual meeting prior to the CiTiZEN KiNO event… more coming soon !

< Added > Yes, confirmed ! there is a reSource meeting beginning at 18:30h til about 20:30h… we will discuss the future of this local Berlin network of arts+tech+? community. Curators, artists, citizens … all welcome !

possible voku being planned, or regular panke menu.

And upcoming C-KiNO dates for …

Friedrichshain? Mitte ? … Leipzig ? in March ? … Amsterdam ? … And the USofAah in April ?
