Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand will visit the Salon Digital. - Online.

Due to Covid-19 the lecturew is postponed to an (half)public online version on May 12th, 2020. It will be published as a video soon.

Fluid Bodies: from the Celestial to the Subatomic

Abstract: The artworks of Evelina
Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand explore exotic fluid phenomena, from sonoluminescence to Saturn’s hexagonal polar vortex. Pushing the very thresholds of observability, their endeavours raise questions as to what can and cannot be ultimately perceived and comprehended about physical reality. The duo will discuss their 20-year trajectory, culminating in a recent collaboration with the 2017 Nobel Prize winner, LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave

Spektakel II: Reenactments in Art, Design, Science and Technology.

English Abstract
The program for Digital Media at the University of the Arts Bremen launched a regular series of salon-style gatherings titled “Spectacle: Reenactments in the Arts, Design, Science and Technology.” The events have an open format and provide a forum for experiments, presentations and performances from a range of different fields, but with a common focus on old and new media, as well as technologies. The salon thereby enables a practice of reenactment as a way to make things past and hidden visible, present and also questionable.
Contemporary new technologies and media seem to cover knowledge with complex layers of materials, code/sign systems and history/organization. Reenacting can translate obscured knowledge, ideas and theories into bodies and actions. At the heart of this conceptual approach is a desire to turn past events into present experiences—although the very nature of the past prohibits such an endeavor.
The salon pursues the primary goal of opening closed systems and constructions (black boxes). Global power structures, as well as complex processes in development and production—leading to hermetic constructs—have made it even harder to understand science, economy and contemporary media, as well as new technologies. Recipients therefore tend to mostly grasp only their superficial level. The spectacle is a way to condense actions and processes. Reenactment, on the other hand, builds on repetition and history. But the spectacle is a moment in the here and now where everything flows together and culminates.
