Season 2 | 2018  PASSION  

November 2018

 

The Future of Demonstration is an art series with two seasons and five episodes each. The episodes are based on thematic clusters derived from the leitmotifs, VERMÖGEN 2017 and PASSION 2018.

 

The art series engages with the radical changes we are witnessing today in the ecological, social, and cultural spheres. It explores the notion of demonstration and its political, technological, pedagogical, and aesthetic capacities as means to imagine, collect, weave, embrace and share narratives, techniques and affiliations of resistance. Conseived by Sylvia Eckermann and Gerald Nestler with Maximilian Thoman.

Video

WHISPER. Status Code : No Entity Found

Video, audio, 4:49 min., 2016

 

2K feed and headphones recommended! The video exposes the libidinal power of financial capitalism. In Gerald Nestler's lyrics, the market/money/capital addresses us directly. Its seductive speech is set to rhythm and sound by Sylvia Eckermann who also generated the visual surface. Computer voices strike up the digital hip hop of futures. Volatile swings define the imagery. We are the object of desire. Derivative markets constitute the "recombinant social DNA" of the social body. "Oh baby! How you nourish me!"

Sylvia Eckermann: video, sound. Gerald Nestler: words.

n o w h e r e — ein welt raum spiel
n o w h e r e is a GameMod, a modification of the Egoshooter Unreal.

The user moves freely in any direction in virtual, three-dimensional space. Architecture, sound, voice-over and images support the immersive effect of this medium. Flying freely through space and time as a metaphor reflects the intellectual world of the group of artists and architects that came together in the Crystal Chain share their ideas. 2005.
