We are very happy to present the art installation “The Sublime & Subliminal (empty molds)” curated by .rar. Don’t miss it at !

"The Sublime & Subliminal (empty molds)" is an immersive installation commenting on societal filters that categorize and alienate individuals. It's a metaphor for stimuli like social media, institutions, and normalized information shaping our perceptions. Featuring human-sized glass boxes with smoke and lighting effects, it symbolizes societal molding and individual experiences within the collective.

Clara Kulemeyer(she/her), born 1992, is an Argentinian artist based in Cologne. She studied fashion design at the University of Buenos Aires and is currently pursuing postgraduate studies at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. Her art spans photography, audiovisual, and installations, blending various media to explore contemporary themes. She focuses on creating hybrid scenes and uses digital alienation to reflect current dissonances. Kulemeyer has exhibited her work internationally at venues like KunstWerk Cologne, Aurora Cultural Centre in Mendoza, and Goethe-Institut Paris. She curated "The sublime & The subliminal" and will showcase her next exhibition at Kunsthalle Recklinghausen as part of the Junge Weste Kunstler Preis exhibition from Dec 3 to Feb 11.

We are now opening the registration form for the Loophole VR Exhibition (in collaboration with ). To attend the round-discussion on-site and book a VR-session to explore the exhibition, please register through the form on our Linktree in bio, as the exhibition has a limited capacity.

What to expect: The Loophole VR Exhibition will showcase 5 artworks in Virtual Reality, creating an immersive experience for the viewers. Each artwork will explore the potential of digital art to break free from the closed system of automated, profit-driven art and culture in the digital age, drawing inspiration from diverse cosmologies and knowledge systems.

On Thursday (30.11.23) evening, the opening day of the exhibition, we are going to have a hybrid round discussion with artists about their work. The discussion will take place online, but we are going to project it on the wall for the attendees in-house. At the end of the round discussion there will be a Q&A session, where on-site and online attendees can ask questions and participate in the dialogue.

Privacy notes: We will have a camera on site to stream and record the entire round discussion from the Cologne site, and we will publish the recordings to the public after the festival. However, if you have privacy concerns, please note that there is a possibility of being filmed during the session if you attend on-site. This doesn't apply to the VR sessions, though. Additionally, the discussion will be live-streamed on Twitch for those who want to view remotely. 

If you have any questions or inquiries reach out to us on DM or at [email protected].

Introducing the VR Exhibition at TMF2023

Artwork #5: The Convoluted Passage by Sudhir Ambasana

In the current context of automation concatenating an order over geopolitical, environmental and mental chaos, the human subject finds itself encapsulated within an enclosure of a recursive closed loop system to a point where a possible chance of complete elimination seems inevitable. This exclusion brings into concern the question of passive consumption - uncritical overlook towards the unfolding. 

This project aims to challenge the Man-Machine dichotomy by encouraging users to actively interact with an automated system and question its underlying assumptions. Through a web-based game, participants will manipulate objects and explore an immersive interior space, prompting the system to generate new narratives and perspectives. This process will encourage users to reconsider the relationship between humans and technology, and to speculate on the potential for new and more harmonious forms of interaction.

Sudhir Ambasana (they/them) is an architectural designer, digital artist and a researcher. They received their MA from Städelschule, in Frankfurt. They explore design procedures through the use of photogrammetry and other image processing tools to further visualize and design 2D/3D imagery, immersive VR environments and AR applications.

Artwork #2: The Thinkers Loop by Shan Shan Wang

The Thinkers Loop is an artistic endeavor that aims to evoke a series of inquiries. The space itself is a vast, ethereal soundscape, with a series of interconnected Mozilla Hubs rooms that each feature a unique digital music composition. These compositions, generated by AI algorithms, utilize a variety of sounds and samples to create a truly immersive and otherworldly experience. As viewers navigate the space, they encounter unique "thinkers" — abstract, humanoid forms blending video, data structure, and 3D models. Each "thinker" exhibits distinct movements and behaviors influenced by surrounding data. Some might be lost in thought, their movements slow and deliberate, while others might be more frenzied and chaotic, reflecting the fast-paced and overwhelming nature of IoT.

This project prompts us to contemplate the extent to which human thoughts and ideas have become progressively influenced by technology. The act of “thinking” was once an organic exercise, a product of our own minds and experiences, has now become a data-driven entity, stored, and processed within the digital medium. This transition holds significant ramifications for our comprehension of the human condition. As we navigate this brave new world, we find ourselves confronted with the enigmatic question: what becomes of consciousness when it is transmuted into the binary code that underpins our digital existence?

Shan Shan (she/her) is an award-winning new media artist with a research practice in digital humanities and socio-political interactions. She has received the Kooshk and Sonar+D awards for her VR/AR/XR work, spoken at NYVR, produced a VR short at MIT Hackathon, and is a VR advisor for film festivals.

Artwork #3: Verisimilitude--Human-Computer Feedback Loops by Veronika Batzdorfer & Alec Gordon

With the rise of commercial AI applications like GPT-3.5, largely operating as black-box models with undisclosed training weights and parameters, a crucial question emerges: how can humans shape algorithms, particularly those deeply intertwined with daily operations like recommender systems, within a feedback loop? Many emerging applications prioritize accuracy benchmarks, neglecting the explainability of underlying decisions.

This project seeks to bridge the gap in human-computer interaction by constructing artificial human-like figures whose movements and poses are estimated and traced with a deep learning framework such as MoveNet. MoveNet relies on human training data, connecting the imposition of human movement onto the artificial agent.

Veronika Batzdorfer explores simulating human behavior using AI applications, pushing the boundaries of performance. She investigates images with deep learning methods, examining the interplay of human movements in a recursive learning environment, deep fakes, and how authenticity is transmitted and constructed in a digitalized environment within human-computer interactions.

Gobi_10k (alec gordon) is a Scottish sound artist and programmer who currently lives and works in Den Haag, Netherlands. Gobi_10k’s work is concerned primarily with noise in a variety of “saturated” states, driving noise through numerous cycles of feedback, often using frequencies that occupy the entire range of human hearing.

Artwork #2: Teleport by Hugo Lioret & Kateryna Repa

"If teleportation could be, what would it look and sound like? We imagined it in the form of a dome arch resonating in space. In this art project called "Teleport", arches are presented in the form of an embryo that grows in a sonic environment depending on the development and capabilities of new technologies, just like any embryo evolving over time to become an entity in its own space. "

Hugo Lioret is a sound artist and researcher. Hugo studied with Mathias Delplanque in Berlin, with Hervé Bouley at Radio France in Paris and at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague. He did his master thesis on field recording at Sorbonne University and worked at INA GRM on pedagogy and at GMEM CNCM as in charge of the transmission unit.   

Kateryna Repa is a multidisciplinary artist born in Odesa, Ukraine in 1979. Currently, she is based in Italy. Kateryna Repa works with various artistic mediums, including painting, graphics, media art, sculpture, and photography. Her diverse portfolio reflects her versatility and creative exploration.

Meet the curators: #3 Jessica Ekomane

Jessica Ekomane is a French-born and Berlin-based electronic musician and sound artist. She creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience. Her quadraphonic performances, characterized by their physical affect, seek a cathartic effect through the interplay of psychoacoustics, the perception of rhythmic structures and the interchange of noise and melody. Her ever-changing and immersive sonic landscapes are grounded in questions such as the relationship between individual perception and collective dynamics or the investigation of listening expectations and their societal roots.

Her first LP Multivocal was released in 2019 via Important Records, stemming out of a project for a sleeping event at Ars Electronica, curated by Shu-Lea Chang and Matthew Füller. Since then, her work has been extensively presented in festivals, venues, contemporary art spaces and museums across the world such as Hamburger Bahnhof, Reina Sofia, Kanal Pompidou, Art Basel, Villa Massimo, CTM festival, Cafe OTO, Gedächtniskirche...

She was one of the composers chosen as collaborators by Natascha Sadr Haghigian for her installation Ankerzentrum at the German pavilion of the Venice Biennale 2019, alongside Maurice Louca, DJ Marfox, Jako Maron, Tisha Mukarji and Elnaz Seyedi.

She is currently one of the fellows in residence for the villa Romana Prize 2023 in Florence.

Meet the curators: #2 ArtSaves

The Iranian producer ArtSaves is known for his unpredictable, ominous sound that ventures into the experimental territory. ArtSaves music career started in Tehran in 2012, where nightclubs are prohibited by law and his performances remained within the confines of undisclosed parties. The producer released his latest EP‘Decay’ in 2022 under his own imprint Kopi / ی پ ک. His music compasses a melange of ambient and industrial techno ambiguously drawing inspiration from his Iranian heritage while targeting the concepts of identity, authenticity and belonging.

As an alumnus of the Red Bull Music Academy in Berlin 2018, ArtSaves was mentored by musical luminaries during his residency. Shifting between rhythmically dismal delicate beats to hardcore techno, he prefers to be indefinable but leaves the dance floor pulsating. ArtSaves is invested in amplifying the Tehran scene which is known for its highly experimental and haunting sounds. He currently resides between Vancouver and Tehran.

We are very excited to (re)introduce Peter Kirn, Artsaves, Jessica Ekomane, and Monibi! We're also thrilled that Kambiz Kia, a driving force in Tehran's underground club scene, co-curates our club night with Monibi.

TIMCHEH

The term „Timcheh“ (reads Tim-che) means a „small Caravansary“. As a part of Bazaar- the liveliest and socially diverse hub in cities of Iran- Timcheh is a space to pause; A space that offers a chance to individuals from different social and cultural backgrounds encounter and interact.

The „Timecheh“ longs to recreate this pause within the space we live in as travelers, migrants, and locals; it invites us to listen, observe, and reflect on our diverse, yet familiar cultural motifs. To achieve this goal, we want to go beyond the geographical limitations and cultural barriers by establishing a cross-border and cross-cultural platform that facilitates collaborations between independent contemporary Iranian and international artists.
