< 23.06 > CiTiZEN KiNO #55 ( and #54 ): “Collective Art Identities” at Panke Cafe, Btopolis

C-KiNO is an ongoing series of public media navigations. We combine “cinema hacking”, theater, community forums and occasional psychomagic experiments to analyze ( and react to ) local and global situations. And we take aim for better possible worlds !

C-KiNO #55 is a special DOUBLE FEATURE, which combines research, media and analysis collected to investigate two topics: Ubermensch + Collective Art Identities. By mixing the two into one episode, we have the ability to debate the questions arising in a conflicted world where consumerism and hyper-individualism has lead to a planet out of balance, in continuous conflict and accelerating toward ecocide. Our only exit may lie in how we create together alternative methods+ structures for collaborative identity, i.e. operating together as a truly intelligent organism. One could argue that our current interconnected communications web is an early stage of such an entity, but 1. it omits the representation of all other interdependent species and 2. it’s increasingly becoming a corporate and military-owned beast, fixated on technological products. Artists + Activists with some experience in working beyond the limitations of individual outputs and conventional art platforms might provide some ideas for a radical new life form to emerge.


We’re still working on a longer article on Collective Art Identities + Collective Agency, in the meantime, here’s some more evolution of where we’re headed with C-KinO #55 …

About: THIS show combines two themes that are very near to our hearts, one like a dagger, the other our passion for better worlds. Stuff we consider extremely relevant for the future of TACTICAL ARTS and CULTURES OF RESISTANCE in our current precarious global situations. Together with your help we aim to illuminate some fresh territories to imagine planting the seeds for a more empowered and collaborative future !

A special DOUBLE FEATURE, mixing and analyzing the rise of a dark new accelerated “ubermensch” in parallel or in contrast to communities which operate within collective entities and identities. Provoking questions between the two poles, a hyper-individualist culture in conflict with social organization among connected and interdependent organisms. What directions can we take now for sustainable,egalitarian and multi-species futures ? Are we witnessing another dangerous re-appropriation of Nietzschean ‘will to power’ and technological-driven “super-men” ( i.e. post-humanist ) or are there an opportunities in the global crises to evolve as closer-knit communities enabling local Commons strategies on a planetary-consciousness scale? Can we still detourn the Oligarchic habitat-crashing + self-interested Looneys when we align our creative forces and unleash our social-organism potentials !?
