Fritz Hendrik IV 'Where are you?'

1. Access the online location guessing game "Where am I?" at http// and acquaint yourself with the interface.
2. Envision the given location as your birthplace, close your eyes to immerse yourself fully.
3. Imagine your fictional life in this place: name, family, cultural background—connecting to the area.
4. Reflect on your imagined life's arc: accomplishments, struggles, community impact, shaped by the location.
5. Take your time and don’t read the next step until you have done the excercise.
6. Welcome back. Consider now your own life, with its joys and struggles, and remember how your fictional person and their family were not so lucky to have been born in the first place.

dina mimi 'Is this what you imagined when you imagined liberation?'

This sound piece is a deconstruction of the sound of liberation, what does liberation sounds like? the film (ساعه التحرير دقت / the hour of liberation has arrived - 1974 by Heiny Srour) was the main inspiration for this work by taking some fragments and manipulating the sound by repetition, stretching or overlapping. How do we re-write the songs of liberation and freedom into one note.

The musical score takes its inspiration from the audioscape - the melodic material is all based on two of the songs heard in the audio. At times full melodies are heard and, at others, the fragmented sound is echoed in fragmented sections of melody used in repetition leading to an unsettling and tension-filled accompaniment to the clustered and fractured sounds of revolution.
from children learning the alphabets during the Revolution
to the sound of bullets of the fighters,
From Yemen to Palestine,
from Palestine to South Africa.

*This work is in collaboration with Robin Burlton

Dina Mimi (b.Palestine,1994) a visual artist and filmmaker who works and lives between Jerusalem and Amsterdam. Her practice is multifaceted and uses video, sound, performance, and text, wandering around grief. Fugitive bodies asking questions like: how does grief sound? How do we search for fictional fractions within historical accounts? What happens to the body before the vanishing point? Dina’s work consists of extended research into death and memory, especially within historical events of the colonial past.
nia nottage 'Lesbian no rape showgirls', 2023

'Lesbian no rape showgirls' is a specific cut of the original NC-17 version of the film, less 25 mins and with the addition of some augmented scenes. this version is even gayer than its original racy counterpart, and does not include the infamous violent rape scene. it's also been edited for unnecessarily racist content. it's all sex, with less cringe.

Born and raised as a freelancer

THE RIGHT TO THE CITY XXX is a podcast that explores Amsterdam’s grassroots resistance against homelessness and unaffordable housing, and its consequent fuel of counterculture platforms in the city, in the past and in the present. The project defines an alternative map of the city through a series of conversations and sound-pieces raising questions such as: How to survive today’s neoliberal policy in Amsterdam? Is it possible to create alliances from different positions and privileges to claim back together our Right to the City? What role does art and artists have to play in the ongoing housing struggle, as they are often used as agents of gentrification? THE RIGHT TO THE CITY XXX merges LOMA DOOM (Femke Dekker) and WERKER COLLECTIVE’s long term practices which investigate the role of archives as a tools for resistance and political imagination with contributions by MOKUM KRAAKT, NIET TE KOOP, OCCII, W139, WE ARE HERE, ADAM ADRISS, AD DE JONG, GUILLY KOSTER, TEFERI MEKONEN, BOUDEWIJN RUCKERT, SJOERD STOLK, WOUTER STROET, ALITE THIJSEN, ELKE UITENTUIS, ANNEGRIET WIETSMA.

An edition of screen-printed bandanas has been designed by Werker to help spread the sound waves through the city. Complementing to the launch, a selection of materials on the topic of housing struggle in Amsterdam, from the first rent strikes of the 1930’s until today is on display at SAN SERRIFFE.

With the generous support of SOCIAL PRACTICE WORKSHOP (Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten), EDUCATION FROM BELOW (European Culture Fonds), SAN SERRIFFE (Mondriaan Fund).

About Werker Collective

WERKER is an experimental publishing initiative operating in the intersection of labour, ecofeminism and the lgbtqi+ movements in favour of an image critique of daily life, to analyse what is made visible and what remains hidden or silenced in different political contexts. It was initiated by MARC ROIG BLESA and ROGIER DELFOS in Amsterdam in 2009 by releasing ten issues of a publication called WERKER MAGAZINE.

WERKER takes inspiration from Der Vereinigung der Arbeiter-Fotografen (The Association of Worker Photographers), a group of politicised photo-clubs that appeared in Germany in the 1920’s, following in the steps of the first socialist photography experiments in the USSR which extended into the rest of Europe, the United States, and Japan. It takes an interest in working methodologies based on self-representation, self-publishing, image analysis, collective authorship and counter-archiving.

WERKER aims to expand the notion of self-publishing into a variety of media such as moving image, digital publishing, installation, printed matter and performance. It operates contextually, thus exploring different forms and strategies of interaction with a variety of audiences. For the last 10 years, under the name WERKER COLLECTIVE, it has been hosting photography, design and publishing workshops with students, cultural workers, self-organised unions of migrant domestic workers, undocumented migrants, in support of anti-eviction activists, feminist groups, lgbtqi+ communities and people with neurological or functional diversities, amongst others. Through these workshops, WERKER COLLECTIVE is weaving an intersectional and trans­national network of allies, reactivating oppressed histories and inquiring worker’s solidarity through collaborative artistic practice.


LOMA DOOM, a true radio veteran and beacon of twisted and mesmerising sounds. Whether you experience her musical activities or those relating to her contemporary arts practice, curiosity is a key aspect gracing Femke Dekker (real name). As LOMA DOOM, her signature style revolves around electronic experimentalism, both for mind and movement, seeking the outliers, one that avoids linearity, towards a space where intuition and understanding meet. Actively incorporating styles predating the computer era, she sources from her fondness for freak folk, psychedelic and hardcore punk. This openness veered Femke into a category of respected deejays in the leftfield underground, having played influential spots such as Salon Des Amateurs, Meakusma and Dekmantel, amongst others. Using radio and archives as her main media, her current focus is on various notions of listening and how listening is actually a call to action.

She currently holds radio residencies at Stranded FM (show: Daydream Nation), Radio Tempo Não Pára (Helter Skelter) and Echobox (Left of the Dial). Parallel to her sonic practice, Femke has a multi-faceted practice as contemporary arts curator and educator. She is part of the core team of online arts radio Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, is a (guest) tutor at Sandberg Instituut and the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague and is an artistic research fellow for the Amsterdam based Visual Methodologies Collective.

fiction 'To travel is to shop'

A sudden collision of two model trains spinning around the park requires two workers to intervene – breaking the illusion of a self-sustained ecosystem of miniature landmark buildings.

In suburban Brussels, walled off behind fences and large hedges, the elusive fiction of some sort of “European spirit“ is upheld by a seemingly arbitrary collection of shrunken monuments. Unbothered by changing borders, geopolitical conflicts or proportional representation, a selection of convincingly precise replicas offer scenarios where national monuments, authored by starchitects of the past, mingle with sponsored Coca-Cola trucks. Medieval forts are invaded over and over again and a rocket launch with a Daft Punk soundtrack takes place in Latin America, without any eyebrows raising. A visitor drops their purse by Fontana di Trevi but is discouraged from picking it up by the incognito guards.

Karin Iturralde Nurnberg 'The Sofa Store'

In this Facebook event we are invited to follow a story (the meeting of two people) and to think of a specific place (a sofa store in Amsterdam). These are two different things. On top of that there is a THIRD thing: a reference to a future film festival that will actually take place in this sofa store in the 9th of September. The Film Festival will be organized by Dagmar Bosma and Karin Iturralde under their city-project 'Garden of Weeds'. You can subscribe to the mailing list to receive info about it by writing an e-mail to: subject ‘Garden of Weeds’

(Multidisiciplinary artist, b. 1992 in Guayaquil-Ecuador. Based between Ecuador and The Netherlands) When moving outside of my teenage room and out of my mother’s house I found myself still locked inside a gated neighborhood. Jeez. Took a plane and studied a bachelor of Fine Arts in the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, progressively further away, in Amsterdam. While moving across these different walls into these different environments and cultures many mediums and languages found their way into my practice as I mapped my way outside... of the ways... I used to know. Grrrrrrassssp. Walks in the city, rucola photo maps, video encounter with strangers, large scale print making in airplanes. Ways to grab and get a grip, look closely and try to stop the automatic voice of google map narration insisting on me to ‘continue straight’* without checking out what-is-going-on-in-this-one-way-road. Regarding the materiality of my practice things span broad with materials that are often light and disposable. Toilet paper rolls, napkins, food scraps, the clothes my grandfather no longer uses, memories, paper tape, walks & conversations. I recognize a poetic influence from conceptual and fluxus art as well as from magical realism literature and see the poetics around my gestures and performances as a line that holds my practice as it fluctuates from one material to another.
Leeway 'Leeway — Ceremony in a Contemporary Context'

Leeway is one of many tangible outcomes of a multi-media research project investigating the cultural crossroads of modern spirituality, psychedelics, and back-to-nature communities.

In this broad research endeavour, Leeway focuses on how these topics are being addressed in late-stage capitalism.

The totality of this multi-media research project spreads over a growing number of artists, creatives, designers, and researchers globally. Currently, the collaboration takes place through a decentralised operational flow. There are indirect links to cultural and academic institutes, but most work is executed in an interdependent way utilising a wide variety of online tools.

Matthijs Diederiks is an Amsterdam-based creative, researcher, and content creator. He makes films, publications, podcasts, and chocolates.
Tomasz Skibicki 'Joint Photographic Experts Group'

Joint Photographic Experts Group is a procedure observed by Tomasz Skibicki

To understand an entanglement in time, it helps to understand an entanglement in space. Two spatial structures join two seemingly unrelated formats of representation: A puppet and a magazine. Despite their separation, both formats are somehow connected. A change induced in one improves our knowledge of the other. However, there is something really fucked up about it and we deal with it unknowingly on a daily basis…

Tomasz Skibicki is an Amsterdam based artist, producing installations, sculptures, and films based on what he likes to call “firsthand encounters with second-hand stories”. His attempt is to refine traditional crafts such as wood carving and assembling to produce works that as much speak to concerns of consumerism, technology and death, as they are riddles in personal and arcane narratives.
Brianna Leatherbury 'Multi-Geographic Soon-to-be-Hotel featuring Melting Walls and Windows'

An advertisement for a compressed property, the melding of a former prison and a former farm estate. Both individual buildings have already been physically sold and remodelled via the Rijksvastgoedbedrijf. But, with the help of a ghostly possessor, they continue to exist wholly and virtually online, available for short-term rental on Vrbo.

Brianna Leatherbury is an Amsterdam based artist. At the moment, they are obsessed with conversations, engaging in haphazard dialogues with unlikely peers. They are seeking out documents as witnesses to and agents of our shared synthetic spaces.
Domenique Himmelsbach de Vries 'Paper Monument'

The ‘Paper Monument’ is a project by Domenique Himmelsbach de Vries that serves as a poetic memorial to refugees without identity papers. Since 2013, it has grown from community art workshops into an international street art campaign. Take part in this endeavour by glueing the portraits in your city or using these woodcuts to raise awareness in any other way.

Print this monumental document at your university, at a copy shop, at home or wherever you can find a copy machine, a laser printer, a water-resistant inkjet printer or any other water-resistant reproduction process. Cut off the white borders and glue the portraits in public space by merging the four separate parts into one complete portrait (you can also pre-merge the posters before pasting).

This PDf holds all 63 'A Paper Monument for the Paperless' portraits cut into four A4 pages. In the past, activists who would like to glue the project were dependent on the Dutch printing and shipping costs. These expenses were way too high for people who would like to glue the work in Peru or Mexico a.o. This PDF empowers these people to print the portraits themselves and spread the project beyond its present-day reach.

Domenique Himmelsbach de Vries (1983) is a social artist and idea generator. He makes monuments to unwritten histories and futures, conducts playful campaigns and commits guerrilla interventions. His work is included in the collections of the De Domijnen Museum in Sittard and the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam. NRC Handelsblad, Het Parool and RTL Nieuws published about his work. He exhibited in Amsterdam, Berlin, Ghent, and New York, among other places.
ARTISTS at RISK 'UKRAINE: Emergency Temporary Relocation Resources for artists and cultural workers'

This is a list compiled by concerned cultural workers for our colleagues in Ukraine. The list is being updated and is not exhaustive. Please send updates and information that may be useful to

ARTISTS at RISK (AR) is a non-profit network institution at the intersection of human rights and the arts. AR is dedicated to mapping the field of persecuted art practitioners, facilitating their safe passage from their countries of origin, hosting them at AR-Residencies and curating related projects, including the AR Pavilion.

Artists, writers, curators, critics and scholars are targets of politically motivated threats and persecution in great parts of the world. Perpetuum Mobile (PM) initiated Artists at Risk (AR) as a platform and network to support these art practitioners in times of need. This encompasses enabling their safe exit from countries of origin, the procurement of travel documents, providing legal assistance, and matching ARs with “AR-Residencies”. The AR-Network comprises a growing number of local nodes. Since 2013, it has created over 25 AR-Residencies for artists across 19 countries – from Finland, Germany and Spain to Tunisia and the Ivory Coast – offering temporary relocation for artists who face persecution or imprisonment for exercising their right to freedom of expression. The programme has assisted artists from Brazil, Syria, Vietnam, Egypt and Kenya, among many other countries.

Sophie Soobramanien 'Bloodchild as erotica wip'

"I am sharing a google doc of thoughts/feelings around a film I am making currently that will be in the show."

Sophie Soobramanien is currently working towards a duo show with Antonin Giroud-Delorme at Mutter, opening 18th Feb (hopefullyy!). There will be sculptures, films, a collaborative curtain piece and a writing by Dagmar Bosma. The show is called Para-genous bodies, a word we made by smushing together a pre-fix and a suffix. "Para"meaning beside of/parallel to and "-genous" meaning originating in/born from or producing. The work will be shown at Mutter, a new art space in Amsterdam Oost (Ruyschstraat 301), which was previously a midwifery living and training centre for the OLVG.

Sophie Soobramanien (b. 1995) is a British Mauritian artist living and working in Amsterdam. She wants to offer the potential for new in-roads and rabbit holes to people who may feel akin to her. Growing up between varying cultures, she is interested in how the individual builds, signifies and performs identity amidst a constantly shifting ecosystem of personal and familial histories, emotionality and desire.
oddd 'A collective body walks into a bar'

'A collective body walks into a bar’ is a collage zine, shaped by conversations with friends on the duality and complexities of community, gatekeeping and the word ‘queer’. The zine is imagined on pieces of clothing, questioning appearance as a signifier for personal politics.

Thanks to H, S, O, M, M, I + D, S and others for their conversations. Let's continue.

In case of any benefits coming from this project, 100% will be donated to a trans fund that will be launched later this year. The fund will provide packages that will allow trans folx to access health care, phone payments, affirmative clothing, and more.

oddd has a practice in graphic design, web development and queer space organising and is based in Brussels.
Jan-Pieter ‘t Hart 'Dog Star Man (a dialogue)'

“Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb (yeah)”

A dialogue between V and A, two artists who are watching the film Dog Star Man by Stan Brakhage on a MacBook in A’s living room. They talk about relationality, nostalgia, forms versus formations, Youtube comments and Letterboxd reviews. The dialogue can be read as subtitles under the film.

Jan-Pieter ‘t Hart is an artist and art worker based in Amsterdam. He works mostly in the fields of writing, sound, publishing and organizing. He is one-fourth of an arts platform and floating collective called OUTLINE and is currently enrolled at the Dutch Art Institute.

In an attempt to grasp the Now, Heleen Mineur knits together contemporary conundrums, hypes and speculations, as if they are relics from the past -- fantastically, satirically and poetically. As she cuts into the ongoing performance of the world, she seeks to convey our scattered and fragmented epoch with care and playful criticality; rather than factuality and regret. Among this polyphony of undetermined objects, shaky video snippets, piercing sounds and rhythmic chatter -- perhaps lies a glimpse of what a possible future could be.

In her practice, Heleen looks at our (Western) ideas and speculations around nature and care through tropes, hypes, and imagery. Working with image, video, performance and text, Heleen takes things out of their everyday context, and makes cathartic, bitter-sweet work realms. Her interest in the flux of perception stems from her lifelong relationship with neurodiversity: finding methods to use her train of thought (and of many others) as a truth, and not as a handicap.
DAISYWORLD MAGAZINE DAISYWORLD MAGAZINE is a seasonal art publication on perception, the sensory, the non-human, ecology & erotica with an emphasis on interconnectedness. The artist's intimate knowledge based on observation, questioning anthropocentrism through beauty & language. Reflecting on the past season while softly moving into the next, each issue launches in-between seasons; appreciating experience, transition, and metamorphosis rather than anticipating the next big thing ✿


The wind blows over the earth: The image of contemplation


In the rain

Darting and

Drifting silently out of sight.

Alice dos Reis 'Gums, Ghosts, Road, Movie’

'Gums, Ghosts, Road, Movie’ is a short film that maps records, fragments and personal impressions around the eucalyptus tree, collected during a trip through the state of Victoria in Australia and the region of Beira Interior in Portugal.

Due to its rapid growth, this tree only native to Australia, was widely introduced in Portugal in the early 19th century in order to address the high level of deforestation in the country--a consequence of the excessive use of wood in the colonial enterprise. On the other hand, it is the excessive and continued planting of this tree that today is responsible for the high level of forest fires in the region.

Tracing the journey of this species from its place of origin, 'Gums, Ghosts, Road, Movie' ultimately translates into a reflection on heartbreak, familiarity and displacement.

Alice dos Reis is an artist working between Lisbon and Amsterdam. They hold a Masters in Fine Art from the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and has exhibited, read and published regularly in galleries, institutions and film festivals, including EYE Film Museum (Amsterdam), 5th Istanbul Design Biennale, Display (Prague), Serralves Museum for Contemporary Art (Porto), Kunsthalle Lissabon (Lisboa), Seventh Gallery (Melbourne), Galerie InSitu (Paris), and Gallery Lehmann + Silva (Porto). They’ve had their films featured in platforms such as Vdrome and Museum of the Moving Image (NY). Together with Pedro Neves Marques they run Pântano, a literary and poetry press. Between 2020-2021 they're a grantee of the Mondriaan Fonds development grant for Emerging Artists.
James Raphael Tabbush 'Unthought ASMR'

This project, an ongoing series of films, is designed to be distributed online via sharing platforms and social media. It is on YouTube, at this link, but also elsewhere under different names. The films use forms and tropes from ASMR, meditation aids, vlogs and algorithmically created viral content, while exploring themes of distance and intimacy, the limits of consciousness and selfhood, ideas of liquidity and chaos.

The films would not exist without friends and collaborators. They are best watched when lonely.

James Raphael Tabbush (UK) is an artist and writer based in London. His work includes digital, filmic, written and sonic elements, sometimes within the form of installations and more recently online work. The basis of the work is in an extended study of current systems of image production and distribution. Common themes are the act of looking and being looked at, technological distancing, desire, transience and the self. Currently he is thinking a lot about performance to an imagined audience. He is considering writing YouTube: The Novelisation.
Intracybernetic Forensics 'INTRACYBERNETIC FORENSICS'

"We have a connection. Are you real? Does it matter?" is a recurring theme in the works of the students. The starting point was a self chosen platform. What begun as a stern and top-down look at the often criticized existing platforms ended up more as a self-lived recount of (what could be described as) being inside a cybernetic system.

It also became a softer take on 'truth' than the ongoing discussion about fake news we're used to. The projects are first-hand recounts where the feedback loops gets distorted digitally and non-digitally, and not always for the worse.

What became clear through this process, is how tightly controlled the platforms we use everyday are. It's near impossible to use them for any purposes that doesn't align with the interest of the platform itself.

Explorations of present day platforms through the history of cybernetics by 1st year Graphic Design at Gerrit Rietveld Academie. With Alexander Joshua Kinzig, Anaelle Enjalbert, Augustinas Milkus, Rosa Shepherd, Tomáš Hlava, Sanna Rink, Mihali Pavlopoulos, Skye Mckinney, Liza Borovikova, Una María Magnúsdóttir, Minhu Jeon, Louise De Viry, Yoohee Cha, Julian Hill, Özgür Deni̇z Koldaş.

Nolwenn Vuillier 'Horny weeds'

If they match back, be ready for wild talks!

Nolwenn Vuillier lives and works in Amsterdam. Her work questions the dichotomy nature/culture and the standardized perception of our environment that comes out of it.
Tom K Kemp 'Selected Webcomics'

For a while in the early 2010s I stopped trying to make work for what I perceived at the time to be the art world, and got really into making webcomics for a small tumblr community instead. It terms of content creation, that tumblr experimental comics scene now feels anachronistically naive, like no-one had quite figured out how to monetise what they were doing yet - beyond the platform of Tumblr itself profiting on all the engagement. I started making comics as 'matrixchurchill', which was the name of an old parts milling company near my house, and beyond that very small tumblr scene, I never really showed these comics to anyone I actually knew.

For Cosmos Carl, I've arranged a selection of these old comics, based on the themes of labour and cosmic horror.

Tom K Kemp (UK/NL) The films of Tom K Kemp use roleplaying game design, group improvisation and animation to parse the eerie consequences of global systems on intimate and immediate human relations. His works generate unpredictable, semi-autonomous genre fictions, where gamification and collaborative storytelling are combined into a deviated method of complexity modelling.
Daniel Vorthuys & Helena Grande 'Lion’s Pride'

Daisy Lafarge wrote, I quote: My love is too full of good bacteria; good in abundance is bad. Bacteria are known to target already-compromised organisms and my love is always-already compromised, so it is always under attack. Lions rejected and cast out by their pride are the first to fall victim to disease and infection — of the eye, of the paw, of the so-called lion’s pride. End of the quote.

We present the audio piece Lion’s Pride*, a poetic piece of worldbuilding that introduces Omelas, a new geological body made of plants.

Music and sound by Daniel Vorthuys and text by Helena Grande.

*Lion’s Pride is part of the publication accompanying a series of exhibitions titled An Involuntary Trace curated by This is Jackalope for La Casa Encendida in Madrid.

Daniel Vorthuys is an artist based in Amsterdam. His work explores the heritage of the western classical tradition through its stories of metamorphosis, transforming this tradition into a mythology of alien and unstable subject-hood. His musical compositions are geared towards performance and poetry introducing elements of theatre and costume. His work was most recently presented at Currents #8 in Marres, Maastricht and online at Punt WG.

Helena Grande writes, sometimes organizes events, she makes books, videos, performances but mostly autofiction. She is interested in the meeting points between scientific literature, poetry and the ordinary. She is the author of the flash fiction collection Speech Choke (2020). Her stories have appeared in Fictional Journal and the anthology book DW Cities Amsterdam and her essays in A*Desk, nY and Research Catalogue.
Monica Mays 'Unrooted Flying Objects'

Sighted and collected during the historically hottest year of Europe in Virgo season around the city of Alcamo (al-qama, muddy earth). Telescope provided by Posto Segreto.

Mónica Mays (ES) is an artist working between Amsterdam and Madrid. Her sculptural work materializes through scavenging and extracting paranthropological symbolism to investigate forms of cosmological belonging.

Materials with winding, ambulatory histories of global circulation and redistribution intermingle with fabulations and vernacular stories of the home. She draws on ornamentation in folk and domestic artefacts as forms of tacit, unintelligible speech which pass on the irregular and unspoken histories of their making. Notions of botanical decolonisation, prepatriarchal mythologies and the neobaroque are present in her sculptural and performative work through polyphonic compositions and magical realism.
Bin Koh 'Washing Machine, Microwave Oven, Toaster'

The SCP Foundation is a fictional organization documented by the web-based collaborative-fiction project of the same name. Within the website's fictional setting, the SCP Foundation is responsible for locating and containing individuals, entities, locations, and objects that violate natural law (referred to as SCPs). The real-world website is community-based and includes elements of many genres such as horror, science fiction, and urban fantasy. For Cosmos Carl, Bin Koh is juxtaposing links of entities that are embodied as domestic machines with other related links outside of The SCP Foundation.

Bin Koh is a visual artist/graphic designer working in Amsterdam. Running a gastronomy research collective Comfort Ball with Sumin Lee.

LES NEZ is an extra small structure - run by a passionate créature called René- that supports and publishes so far three perfumers: Isabelle Doyen Laurent-David Garnier and Sandrine Videault.

I have been given full carte-blanche to create an olfactory work. I started from the optical effect of moiré. The keystone of MOIRE (the work) is the absolute of Fir needles (albies balsamea). The visual qualities of superimposed Fir needles structure draws patterns of moiré interferences. MOIRE becomes the experience of identical or slightly different infra-thin olfactory patterns, which overlap out of phase and create a slight sensation of reversible displacement. Their olfactory qualities allow the articulation of a superposition of most pure molecules with natural extracts like Fir Balsam, Osmanthus, Lavender, Neroli, Black pepper, Vetiver to name few. MOIRE was the 2020 finalist awarded of the Institute for Art and Olfaction. For more information please contact: or

Garnier's work consists in exploring the idea of the transformation of matter as a transdisciplinary practice questioning the nature of reality at a molecular, embodied and societal level. Navigating between benign everyday objects and cutting-edge technologies, their works push the limits of perceptual experience and question the matter and the way around or with which we sense them under the regime of the success or failure of shared interactions in public or private spaces.
Andra Nadirshah 'Andra's Angel Benefit Auction'

It is crucial to support the gender-affirming and life saving medical needs specific to trans-feminine individuals such as Andra. This surgery, for her, is the difference between living a life in the transitional body she was meant to have as opposed to the one with which she was born. Kers Gallery will be hosting a virtual benefit auction featuring the works of current and former participants of Rijksakademie, De Ateliers, and outside to support Andra in this physical translation. Proceeds will go towards the fundraiser for her facial feminization surgery, a series of gender-affirming operations which help to necessarily affirm the femininity of some transgender women such as herself.

Andra is an artist and participant of De Ateliers and director of the PHILTH HAUS collective consisting of 6 member entities. Through this modality, Andra’s body behaves as a channel through which these entities construct ceremony, installation, performance, and film as a means to embody and refine their own carnality. For additional support, you can donate via:

Tilde 'Tilde at Tinder!'

Hey [insert name here], how are you doing? [Insert comment about one of their photos or bio here] haha! Anyway, I am Diego and I run a small exhibition space in my living room. Due to the pandemic and the reduced amount of visitors I can have at the time,I thought about trying to find different ways to still talk about the exhibition and engage with people who want to see it. Would you like to know more about it? Or maybe would you like to come over for a drink? Best!

Tilde is a para-institution for contemporary art and research, presenting projects in several forms and places, both in its space in Amsterdam and collaborating with other spaces in The Netherlands and abroad. While organizing specific projects and off-site events, carefully unfolding experimental practices in close collaboration with artists, thinkers, writers, researchers, and the community, Tilde aims to create connections between local and international, young and older practitioners. Tilde promotes interdisciplinary dialogues and encourages involvement with other non–profit spaces, as well as institutional and educational systems nationally and internationally.

Tilde is run by artist and curator Diego Diez among others.
Jip van Steenis 'Hyperlink Soap'

Hyperlink Soap ~ is a soap sold on that carries a QR-code right in the heart. This code links to other soaps, soap trays and soap moulds that are for sale on Etsy. The buyer reaches these urls by slowly washing the soap away.

Jip van Steenis started making soap in the early 2020 COVID-momentum. She learned a lot from the online communities of soap makers, but finds it difficult to relate to the sometimes somewhat cringy world of soap. This is her first attempt to sell soap amongst other soap makers on Etsy. In order to embrace this crafty realm a selection of wild discoveries on the platform are embedded in the soap she is selling.

Jip van Steenis (1991) is an artist, anthropologist and recent soap maker. She makes her soaps in her attic in Amsterdam in small batches via the cold-pressed method. All soaps are made with natural, plant-based and mostly organic ingredients. Jip sells her soaps on Instagram, but also made commissioned soaps for the shops at the Eye Film Museum and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. She sees soaps as just another medium to tell a message, not only a product that kills viruses and bacteria. See @jipisvansteen for other projects.
Richard John Jones & Clara Saito 'Encounter #2'

This online video collage documents an encounter between the artists Richard John Jones and Clara Saito, both based in Amsterdam. Emerging from a larger collaborative project by the artist-run space, Jacuzzi, this performance work is shaped by the limits of lockdown and the subsequent mediated mis/communication.

'Encounter #2' follows Richard and Clara as they get to know each other, share ways of working and negotiate their personal lives, the things they share and their differences. Exclusively using footage filmed on their phones, it moves between reality and fiction, documentation and performance, truth and lies.

This project is supported by the Mondriaan Fonds and is produced in collaboration with the artist-run space, Jacuzzi.
Clara Amaral & Jonathan Sachse Mikkelsen '' is an online platform: A book of sorts. Every month an artist, writer, graphic designer or curator, for whom writing is an essential part of their artistic practice, contributes a text. Throughout the month the contribution vanishes in direct relation to the number of visitors, leaving, eventually, an empty website until the next contribution is published.

The first contribution was by Helena Grande.
Sad Ali 2004 'Sad Ali is in love, I believe'

Sad Ali is in love with a fantasy. Fantasies are missing information filled by imagination. His crush is content filler. Images drawn with what desires crave.

Sad Ali is a silent character with a translucent body with no organs– it explores but is not a participant. Floating between scenes it is granted a fluidity that cannot be pinned down.
Ingrid Berthon-Moine 'Lackitlikeit'

It started as a slogan with an alliterative play on the words ‘lack’ and ‘like’, deriving from the controversial Freudian theory of the penis envy, where young girls apparently experience anxiety upon realization that they do not have a penis. Ingrid interviews womxn artists, curators and writers on their notion of lacking in order to contradick the somehow negative concept of lack into a positive and assertive experience.

The questions are:

Q1 – I lack it I like it – How do you interpret the slogan?
Q2 – To expand on the concept of lack, have you suffered from some lack (of skills, experience, education, information, confidence, money, opportunity, awareness, support, sleep, etc?) in your life and career as a woman? How have you managed to overcome, adapt or transform these lacks?
Q3 – Your worst lack?
Q4 – Your favourite lack?
Q5 – What are you up to atm?

Ingrid Berthon-Moine is a French visual artist based in London. Her work primarily uses sculpture, painting and text as a way to examine the de/construction of gender identity and its behavioural consequences in our society. Language, lived experiences are interpreted into abstract figurative sculptures and paintings. The human body is seen as a sensitive receptor which bears the visual traces of our emotional turmoil and is also a source of information and power not to be neglected.
Annosh Urbanke 'post-experience'

In 1937, the photography company Kodak produced and financed a ‘traditional’ Hula dance show at The Royal Hawaiian. Fritz Herman, vice-president and manager of Kodak in Hawaii, founded a performance venue that entertained tourists for over 65 years. Hula was incorporated into the native culture, though, the way in which it was constructed here, it barely resembled the traditional dance. Specially designed sets allowed for optimal light and the dancers performed slowly, pausing each of their movements so that the audience would have time to capture the perfect shot with their Kodak camera. This traditional dance around The Royal Hawaiian & Kapiʻolani Regional Park was framed as a place of entertainment and visual consumption. Later on, this representation of a romantic native paradise led the island to become a backdrop for Western tourists from America or Europe.

On Ebay, the sale of postcards capturing the dance during the 1960’s and 1970’s continues, as an untroubled nostalgic image remains. Annosh transfers the postcards from eBay to google maps. In order to challenge the touristic gaze in the contemporary digital public space.

Annosh Urbanke (1992) works as an artist and in the areas of art writing, curating and research in post-socialist contexts. In her personal work she explores nostalgic and contemporary forms of tourism. While considering personal and collective experiences she looks at today's consumption and performative elements of tourism.
Temra Pavlovic 'K or Cupid or Kairos or Chiron or Huma or other names'

To achieve something that you don't control. The wind is so subtle it can tangle or untangle your hair.

Temra Pavlovic (b. 1990) is an artist based in Amsterdam. More info:
Fleur Melbourn 'Déjuner Nu (Naked Lunch) S01E01'

A soap opera on desire and rejection in six episodes.

Naked Lunch is a soap opera involving multiple perspectives and no consensus. Hidden within the clichés of the daily soap are disguised a series of moral discussions about power. Episode by episode, six philosophical dialogues build upon one another, mapping the protagonists’ shifting relationships to gender, class and sexuality in an often satirical way.

Fleur Melbourn (b. London, 1987) is an artist and writer who works mainly with film to explore humanity's exposure to violence at the hands of power. Dense scripts, chopped narratives and repetition test social relationships where emotion, violence, gender and history are co-opted by systems of patriarchal power. Recent screenings, commissions and solo + duo exhibitions include, 3137, Athens; Triangle France, Marseille; LOV’ Centre d’Art Neuchâtel, Switzerland; In Extenso, Clermont Ferrand, France; ANDOR, London; Serpentine Gallery Miracle Marathon, London; Composite, Brussels; SPACE, London; Serpentine Gallery Park Nights, London; The Austrian Cultural Forum, London & Camden Arts Centre, London. She has been artist in residence at Triangle France, Marseille; Moly-Sabata, Sablons, France and SPACE, London and completed her studies at Goldsmiths College (2009) and the Royal College of Art (2015). She is a recipient of Jerwood Visual Arts, The Eaton Fund and Arts Council funding.

Marius Presterud, Monika Grabuschnigg & Andreas Ervik 'Incubation Highway'

Incubation Highway is a virtual exhibition launching September 25th 2020, featuring works by Monika Grabuschnigg, Andreas Ervik and Marius Presterud. Taking place inside a Tesla-machine, the exhibition looks at the idea of life being lived entangled in and meshed with other things. Or rather, things enlivened by these livings. It explores the idea of the car as oikos (ecology/home) and inspects identity as a continuous fluctuating between hosting life and being a guest in it.

Resonating this theme, the exhibition will burrow itself into the car sales forum of the commercial platform, before being further distributed via the online art platform Cosmos Carl - Platform Parasite.

"Cartons are houses for crackers Castles are houses for kings The more that I think about houses The more things are houses for things (...)" - Mary Ann Hoberman (A House Is a House for Me, 1982)

Monika Grabuschnigg (b. 1987) is an Austrian artist based in Berlin and represented by Carbon 12. In her artistic practice she focuses on the feeling of acceleration in an increasingly augmented, anxiety-inducing and commercialized alienating environment. In 2018 she was an awardee of the Berlin Art Prize and in 2016 she received the young artist award from the Federal State Government of Vorarlberg, Austria. Her works have been collected in the State Museum Vorarlberg, the Federal Artothek in Vienna, and the Graphic Collection of the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Recent exhibitions include: ‘Liquified desires, I speed so far’, Gallery Stephanie Kelly, Dresden; ‘...of bread, wine, cars, security and peace’, Kunsthalle Wien, 2020; ‘Dancing at the edge of the world’, Sara Zanin Gallery, Rome, 2020; ‘In delirium I wear my body’, Studioraum 45 cbm, Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, 2019; ‘The garden bridge’, Brücke Museum, Berlin, 2019; ‘Fantasy electrifies my hand’, REITER Galleries, Leipzig, 2019; ‘What satisfaction could you possibly have’, Carbon 12, Dubai, 2018.

Andreas Ervik (b. 1987) is a Norwegian artist and PhD researcher at the Department of Media and Communication, University of Oslo. Ervik's artistic practice explores ecosystem interactions across different scales, ranging from microorganisms in fermentation to founding the avant-luxury health brand SANKE. In his PhD, Ervik researches the aspects of digital living diverting attention, in particular play, stupidity, cuteness and humor. Approached with perspectives from systems theory and biology, these media diversions are traced to evolutionary dynamics of microbes, plants, fungi, mammals and human tribes. Recent exhibitions include Superhost, Like A Little Disaster, Italy 2019; New Nordic Luxury (solo), Reflector Gallery, Bern, 2018; Parasite Technology, Unit 110, New York, 2018.

Marius Presterud (born 1980 is a Norwegian artist based in Berlin and Oslo, who works across a variety of mediums. He has toured Europe as a poet and been the mainliner at venues in Paris, Berlin and Istanbul, as well as performed at established museums, such as Hamburger Bahnhof, Germany, and Henie Onstad Art Center, Norway. In 2018, he debuted at Norway's 131. National Art Exhibition, where he showed sculptural and ecoventionist works. Previous to working as an artist, Presterud held positions within the field of project management, program coordinating, curatorial research, as well as several years in psychiatry. Troubled by questions concerning how therapeutic individuation may be fortifying social atomization, he was drawn to art’s didactic and remedial potential. In 2015 he started working full-time with his art- and research based practice, Oslo Apiary & Aviary. In 2020 he reopened his psychologist office in Berlin, under the abbreviation BAT (Berlin Art Therapy), primarily offering art therapy for groups.

Billy Morgan cold open

'cold open' is a poetic text in the form of a free-flowing word chain, into which some moving images are drawn. The text wavers between way-finding and obstruction, arriving at a short score that plays with the affect of folly, or doesn’t.

tirza kater Meantime (a gash)

[best viewed on anything but a mobile phone]

For Cosmos Carl - Platform Parasite Tirza Kater has taken to the project space she co-directs, Marwan, Amsterdam, NL. Tirza was sustaining a longish-lasting obsession with a particularly long, pink banner on the facade of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, NL, hung hovering over an enormous-scale canvas print of Giacomo Galli's painting 'Christ displaying his wounds' (ca 1630, right when the Great Plague of Milan hit Venice FYI.) The banner held the words TEMPORARILY CLOSED in all-caps white custom-museum type, only to be replaced with the words TEMPORARILY CLOSED | OPEN ONLINE #RIJKSMUSEUMFROMHOME after about a month of becoming saggier and saggier [saggier by the day].

The obsession found its joyful origin in the location of the banner in relation to the canvas-printed painting it was hovering over. 'Christ displaying his wounds' is described by art historians as the ultimate wound-gazer: the viewer is lured into Christ's wound, pointed to it by fingers that are not only opening the wound but almost entering it.

The TEMPORARILY CLOSED on the bright pink banner só close -almost touching- the wound displayed to Tirza such glad paradox, that nothing else could be done with this little detour in crisis-advertising than absorbing it into her own ways of reluctant (crisis-)advertising: [that of] co-directing a project space, that is currently on hiatus [meantime]. Click on the link, be lured into the wound, to catch a glimpse of the now-gone banner. Since the museum has re-opened (we should very much ask, for whom?), a freshly printed, particularly long, pink banner sags under the gash: EXTENDED UNTIL 23 AUGUST, or something.

Since Marwan's inside [innards?] will remain temporarily closed for a while, Tirza has taken to its facade, framing the in-between [liminal] time and space over the coming weeks, not only IRL but also documenting it throughout, on the [gazing] facade-capturing platform Google Maps.

Tirza Kater is an artist and curator living and working in Amsterdam. Working within institutional and self-organized environments, she looks and picks at the structures inside, behind, around, in front of, instead of, below and above the making, showing, and teaching of art.

She graduated from an MA program at the Dutch Art Institute in 2018. Tirza is co-director of artist-run project space Marwan and was initiator and curator of residency program Home Alone. She has been working and works on diverting structures by having hosted a residency program in her parents’ home while they are on holiday, by now running an ambitious program of commissioned projects in the former storage space of a commercial gallery-cum-project space, and she makes a living as a coordinator of a Fine Arts Bachelor where she tries to employ humor as a mode of (survival and) investigating bureaucracy.

félag borgara 'COVID-19 aðgerðapakki: Borgaralaun á Íslandi
Universal Basic Income in Iceland'

We the undersigned, call upon the Icelandic government to ensure Unconditional Universal Basic Income for all citizens of Iceland.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances that have formed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the citizens of Iceland are facing severe unemployment in the coming years. The tourist industry has been devastated and it will take years for other industries to recover. Tens of thousands of citizens will be unemployed in the coming years. In addition to the immediate crisis, technological advances and increased automation of the 4th Industrial Revolution will wipe out many of the jobs known today over the next few decades.

What should all these unemployed people do?

Instead of injecting money into businesses that may not necessarily generate revenue for society in the coming years, we the undersigned think it is more appropriate that the government of Iceland supports their citizens directly. We propose the introduction of Unconditional Universal Basic Income, to ensure that individuals will be given the opportunity to harness their own creativity and work on new creative solutions in a changed economic environment. With Unconditional Universal Basic Income, it is secured that all citizens can have the same basis for creating a new future, rethinking their talents, abilities and dreams.

We call upon the Icelandic government to ensure Unconditional Universal Basic Income for all citizens of Iceland.

Félag Borgara (Fellowship of Citizen) is an interest group that lobbies for Unconditional Universal Basic Income in Iceland.

Josefine Reisch Culinary Essays

Sharing a meal is the most communal and binding act in culture. It is a way to share knowledge and pleasure. To reveal insight into her artistic research Josefine Reisch developed the Culinary Essays. These are banquets that accompany her exhibitions. Each Essay quotes elements of the exhibition transformed into a dish.

The link on Cosmos Carl leads to an amateur cooking portal, where she published pictures, recipes and notes of two previous Culinary Essays.

Being concerned with historiography and the contemporary (mis-)understandings of historic contexts, a banquet is a means to highlight absurdity and ostentation.

Josefine Reisch (*1987 in Berlin) lives and works in London and Berlin.

Yen Chun Lin Parallel Singing Stairs

Parallel Singing Stairs is the first physical EP released from, an EP of two units of field-recording that can be played at the same time. At once a dialogue, a mixtape and a love-letter between two parallel time-spaces that can never coexist and can never hear each other. is a label archiving soundtracks in the form of dust, released as a physical album. recently discovered that the potential for sonic information is contained in even as small a unit as dust, with vibrations recorded in the form of material matters. Dust is continuously exposed to vibrations of all kinds in the environment, especially those considered above the capabilities of ordinary perception of humans and their extended perception of sensory devices. Recorded over the widest range of frequency compared to any other existing recording format; this includes unknown information of surrounding environments from the past, present and future etched onto the dust.

Through the exploration of the multidimensionality of sound, are working with scientists, acoustic specialists and multisensory integration researchers to unravel the feasible extraction of the sedimentary soundscapes encoded in dust. According to their studies, the human listening experience in linear time has to be deconstructed and expanded to hear the soundtracks. It is predicted that the soundscapes from the dust will be able to be heard in the near future, but it is not possible at present.

Petrichor - the scent of rain that is produced when rain falls on dry soil. When a raindrop lands on dry soil, air from the pores form small bubbles which float to the surface and release aerosols that carry the scent. These aerosols carry oils emitted by plants and chemicals from bacteria. The smell of rain, in the present, is the smell of layered memories from the past.

Yen Chun Lin (1990, Taiwan) is a London-based artist working mainly with sculptural installation that is activated by immersive soundscapes and speculative science. Forming from the fascination and fears of unknown phenomena in natural environments, her works investigates ambiguities that are often devalued in assumed knowledge; situated between rational science and the classification of the unexplainable, supernatural, ethereal. Her research focuses on how vibration, in sonic and tactile terms, shapes our perception of our surroundings and the potential of dust as a sonic recorder that continuously records its surrounding environment. Recently awarded the MFA at Goldsmiths, her upcoming curatorial projects and recent shows include: ‘Sonic Treats’, Zona Mista, (2020, London); Performance at ‘Every Breath You Take’, Chalton Gallery, (2020, London); ‘Heterotopia’, Oen Gallery, (2020, Kabelvåg); ‘Ambient Extraction’, Goldsmiths Degree Show, (2019, London); ‘Sedimentary Soundscape’, DEMO - Deptford Moving Image Festival, (2019, London), ‘Protocols of Uncertainty’, Gossamer Fog, (2018, London).

Sofia Albina Novikoff Unger Phenological Time Twist Cards

Break the bud, respond to the weather, leafed out plants in December.

Times have changed, times are changing, times are something that they haven’t been.

The timing of the different phenol phases is shifting, what clock, what Gregorian calendar, or was it Julian, or the Romulus one?

But some things remain the same. Valentine’s Day.

Marking the coming of spring, formal messages, or valentines, appeared in the 1500’s, and by the late 1700’s commercially printed cards were being used.

True to traditions, you can choose between twelve cards responding to confused plants, their shifted phenological times and unexpected flowering.

Now that there is a mismatch, will the Gregorian calendar get an update soon 2.0?

There is little other to hold on to. Send a card.

Sofia Albina Novikoff Unger is a Danish Russian artist based in London and recent graduate from Goldsmiths University MFA.

Phil Woodward The fool who persists in his folly will become wise

Having ignored the advice inherent in William Blake’s aphorism for a long time, I eventually followed my folly and photographed the contents of my compost bin in December 2018. I finally answered the pulsating, subconscious energy that is the mass of the Earth’s compost which was calling me.

I have photographed it regularly since then. Prompted by an interest in pareidolia, essentially seeing faces in things, I look for a suggestion a of face in the head sized rotting sculptures I make from my food waste. I post them on instagram, inserted amongst the hashtags #instafoodie #instarecipe #cheflife etc. I see them as causing a mild disruption amongst the scrolling recipes and curated, seductive, food galleries. They are not wise but an absurd reminder of our impermanence as a species and the waste we produce through our consumption. We, our ideas and our art will eventually return to compost.

@CompostBinHead is an ongoing project by @philcanvas (Facebook, Instagram). Phil Canvas is a project by Phil Woodward, a multi-disciplinary artist using painting, poetry and performance who gained an MFA from Goldsmiths in 2018. He is from the UK, and is currently living in Switzerland.

M. Maria Walhout Exercise for non-

There is an old text which makes some promises about meaning, specifically the possibility of meaning outside of the word. Entanglement enters the text – written in a language that is no longer spoken – right when the wind does: when language cannot come, the text promises, the wind will bend itself over and pass instead through the narrow that the words were not able to pass through. And isn't the narrow the body?

M. Maria Walhout (NL, 1991) is an artist, researcher and writer. Their practice revolves around queer and christian knowledges and practices, the im/possibilities of language and the body for un/making sense, and the instability of everything.


A sensorial detournement.
A directive
A poem

Hrafnhildur Helgadóttir 'Millennium Fall' & 'Generation Contradiction'

Dear visitor.

You are invited to download two time-based artworks hosted by GUEST ROOMS.


Hrafnhildur Helgadóttir earned her BA in fine arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Adacemie and an MFA from Sandberg Institute, both in Amsterdam. In her practice, Helgadóttir investigates different ideas around geopolitics, economy, and post-capitalism. Her images, performances, videos and sculptures find their parameters in games, rules, and other systems of interaction. This sometimes has included the development of display structures as framing devices that host the works of others, hold up physical bodies, or carry other information. Her exhibitions include @G (rongwrong, Amsterdam NL, 2014), Improvisation for Painting, 2014 (Sudurgata 7 Árbæjarsafn, Reykjavík IS, 2014), Improvisation for Painting, 2017 (Marres, Maastricht NL, 2017), and Millenium Fall (ABC klubhuis, Antwerpen BE and Kling and Bang, Reykjavík IS, both in 2018). In addition to her solo work, Helgadóttir is the co-founder of HARD-CORE, an artist collective that focuses on exhibition methodology and algorithmic exhibition making. Hrafnhildur Helgadóttir lives and works in Amsterdam.

Tim Mathijsen 'Spheres'

In a roundabout way of making many from one I purchased a ball from an old workshop. Not just any workshop, a century old workshop. Not just any ball, a century old ball from a century old dusty busted scratched and history encrusted mould. A shape for reproduction.

These balls are all reproductions of an antique sphere from the archive of Atelier de Moulage in Brussels. The original sphere is part of a set of geometrical shapes for study purposes.

Tim Mathijsen is an artist basted in Amsterdam. He works with and around sculpture, making moulds, copies, casts, reproductions.

Ásgerður Birna Björnsdóttir 'The All Seeing Ad'

The All Seeing Ad is an instagram account focused on treating targeted insta ads as a deck of custom-made tarot cards. It encourages visitors to use these extracts of externally collected data as private symbols to mirror thoughts. By systematic scrolling through one’s feed, sponsored ads can be used to reflect on personal questions, situations and concerns, thereby becoming intimate tellers of fate and fortune.

Ásgerður Birna Björnsdóttir is 55% water and lives below sea level in the city of Amsterdam. She graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2016, the year Iphone 7 was launched and David Bowie died. These days Birna is primarily busy with matter of all kinds, fixed and intangible, man-made, dangerous, digital or petrified. Making out edges and glitches by tracing the processes of materials she encounters; a love-sick lump of lead, phantom leg and an almost indiscernible particle that saves us all.

Birna’s works have recently been exhibited by the Reykjavík Art Museum, the Living Art Museum, Kling & Bang, at7 project space, Open project space and Sequences art festival. Birna is co-initiator of Laumulistasamsteypan - summer camp for restless artists, at7 - artist run project space and GSM - exhibition space in frequencies.

Kazimierz Jankowski 'And Of'

“..except for the window everything was black and the bouncer, too, was dressed in black. He saw a long bench with bags and coats on. Also, he saw an aluminum stairwell underneath the whopping sculpture. Under the sculpture was an utter mystery. If I never make it into the store I can only imagine what this mystery would be, ruminated John quietly. But by this point he was 90 percent wet with sweat regardless. He closed his eyes and thought of the girl behind him looking at the swelter on his neck..”

Maeve O'Neill is an artist from Ireland, currently based in London. Working mostly with photography and sometimes with found video footage, Maeve's work explores the complex and subjective psychological effects of built landscape and infrastructures. She is interested in images as unreliable narrators, and in how we interpret our environment through a kaleidoscope of information that involves fiction as much as daily life.

Maeve holds an MFA from Goldsmiths College (2017) and a BA in Photography from the Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dun Laoghaire. (2012). Recent activities include; A Street Loud with Echoes, South Kiosk, London (Forthcoming, 2019), and Photographs: Maeve O'Neill & Lynn Rothwell, Airspace, London, (2019).

Kristín Karólína Helgadóttir 'mountain life'

"I’ve to get myself a website. She thinks to her self in one of her stroll in the highland of Iceland. It is probably good to have a website. Someone thinks. But something is not right. I have a bad feeling about it all. O dear Cosmos Carl? Is it my cloud or your cloud? Fire or a fox? Pic- or nature? Top of the mountain or top my desk? Beginning or the end? Beginning of the end. Maybe Moses know.

In the highland, your computer starts to works against you. Is this good weather or bad weather? the host has become a ghost. The lost will be found."

Kristín Karólína Helgadóttir (b. 1988) is an Icelandic artist working in a wide range of media. Recurring themes in her work are the past inside of the present or things inside of itself… like “itself inside of the thing” – more precise: you as a current state of the Big Bang. Someone described her works as a mischievous visual metaphysic but we put that definition on hold for a while. She recently completed her BA at the Koninklijke Academia van Schone Kunsten in Belgium, with stops at the Iceland Academy of the Arts and Universität der Künste in Berlin. She also holds a BA degree in philosophy from the University of Iceland. She hasn’t decided yet if she will continue studying. Her latest works have been shown in Harbinger, Billytown and At 7. At the moment she works as a warden in the highlands of Iceland.

Monia Ben Hamouda 'Capturing Forces - cinematographe'

Capturing Forces - cinematographe, is a playlist carefully chosen by the artist for the consistency with two very specific themes linked to her work: the acceptance of the image as a container of power and the impossibility of representing reality through art. 20 clips from 20 movies and tv series that are extremely important for the artist, for her way to see the environment and for her research as sculptor. “For Un lac, for instance, it was very hard to find this lake. I looked for it in a few countries, like in Finland, in Norway, in Sweden... Finally I found the lake, but when I shot I didn’t shoot so much the lake, because the question is not to show, but to be inside of something, of the forces, precisely, of the forces of this lake, of the forces of the tree, and the darkness of the lake and the huge mountain. All of this is constructing a type of forces and you are able to shoot at this moment, but the idea to show the lake, by making a large shot, trying to express correctly how a lake is, for me is absolutely non-sense, totally non-cinematographic, because cinema is when you get all these forces, and when you confront by the editing the different types of forces, which are modelling the shot. So the question is not to show but to be with the lake... It’s a totally different way to film, to consider the filming process.’’

(Philippe Grandrieux)

Monia Ben Hamouda (b.1991 IT), lives and work in Milan, Italy.

Susan Kooi 'Cromlech of Xerez'

During a residency in Montomor-O-Novo in Portugal, my friend Lot Meijers and me rented a car and drove to see all kinds of prehistoric megalithic manifestations in the area. Mostly dolems (passage graves), but also menhirs (standing stones) and cromlechs (megalithic enclosures), erected between the 5th and 3rd millennium BCE. The rocks stand out in the landscape, in sizes humans can relate to – find a favorite, lean against, sit on or take pictures with. Not surprisingly, quite a number of these megalithic monuments show signs of later re-use. Prehistoric leftovers such as cave paintings, but especially the standing rocks quite casually exist in this world today. They are just there and easy to access. We went on a private tour in a cave with remains and rock art from both Neanderthals, hunter-gatherers and settled Homo sapiens. We ate our lunch in front of a prehistoric dolmen that was transformed into a chapel sometime in the 17th century; the five upright stones and a covering stone still clearly visible despite the plastering and whitewash. We drove with our rental car around a stone circle, the Cromlech of Xerez made 4000 BCE.

Harold Offeh 'Connect, Enable, Accelerate'

Connect, Enable, Accelerate is a short video that responds to the Cambridge University's Milner Therapeutics Institute. The video was part of series of works developed for The Cambridge Betterment Society, a fictional group initiated by artist Harold Offeh. Offeh was commissioned to respond to the work of Cambridge medical researchers. The video directly takes on the mission of Milner Therapeutics Institute three key aims; ‘connecting academic institutions with pharmaceutical and biotech companies, enabling collaborative research projects throughout Cambridge, and accelerating the formation of new biotech companies with a therapeutic outlook.’ Harold Offeh responds to these key words through a sequence of performative actions and gestures; none is related specifically to the Institute’s work, but instead try to evoke the energy of the Institute’s aspirations. The video draws upon the generic visual language and style of advertising campaigns for corporate brands. However, through the use of synonyms the original corporate slogan begins to breakdown and draw out new and often absurd associations.

Offeh invited three artists: Frederica Agbah, and artist collaborators Jack Scott and Louis-Jack Horton-Stephens, to contribute to the themes within the project. The artists have been working with researchers at the University of Cambridge’s new building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus near Addenbrooke’s Hospital, as part of the public art programme for the project led by Commission Projects. The full project can seen at:

Harold Offeh is an artist working in a range of media including performance, video, photography, learning and social arts practice in a career spanning 20 years. Offeh, often employs humour as a means to confront the viewer with historical narratives and contemporary culture and is interested in the space created by the inhabiting or embodying of history. He has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally including Tate Britain and Modern, Studio Museum Harlem, South London Gallery, MAC VAL, Kulturhusset Stockholm and Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

In 2018, his projects included performances at Publics, a contemporary art space in Helsinki, Finland. Actions: The Image of The World Can Be Different, Kettles Yard, Cambridge, UK. The Real Thing: Towards a Live Authentic Archive as part of Material Experiments at The Tetley in Leeds, UK. Offeh produced a 12-hour live event and film called Down at the Twilight Zone, marking queer experiences of nightlife in Toronto, Canada that was attended by 17,000 visitors.

In 2019, he has been artist in residence at the Contemporary Art Centre, Art Tower Mito, Japan and had a solo exhibition at Turf Projects in London. He studied Fine Art: Critical Practice at The University of Brighton and MA Fine Art Photography at the Royal College of Art.

Johanna Kotlaris 'Fumble9000'

First conceived as an exhibition, Fumble9000 continues to grow as a series of audio works. Both melodies and texts draw inspiration from the idea of a sensual encounter: the experience of the self as part of a continuum, rather than a fusion between purely human bodies. All songs are covers of existing love songs and performed a cappella by the artist. The texts are however rewritten describing imaginary hybrid forms of bodies, machines, objects, spaces and landscapes and proposing alternative material and temporal realities.

Johanna Kotlaris (1988) is an artist creating narratives around how boundaries are experienced, materialized and disintegrated. She researches how emotional, social and physical spaces, as well as forms of identity, autonomy and interdependence are shaped and in return give form to human conditions. Working mainly with performance, sound and sculpture, she elaborates speculative topologies of the relationships between space, psyche, object and body.

She holds a BA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and an MFA from the Piet Zwart Institute. Her works have been showed internationally, amongst others at: Kunsthalle Zürich; the National Gallery of Art, Vilnius; the New Gallery, Calgary; Museo d’Arte della Svizzera Italiana, Lugano; Castrum Peregrini, Amsterdam. She was awarded with prizes and grants from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Basler Kunstverein, Pro Helvetia, the Zürich Department of Culture, the Swiss Federal Office of Culture and is the receiver of a studio fellowship by Foundation Binz39. Past and upcoming residencies include Rupert Vilnius and ABA AiR Berlin Alexanderplatz.

Bob Bicknell-Knight 'Everything Stays'

Let's go in the garden You'll find something waiting Right there where you left it Lying upside down

When you finally find it You'll see how it's faded The underside is lighter When you turn it around

Everything stays Right where you left it Everything stays But it still changes Ever so slightly Daily and nightly In little ways When everything stays

Bob Bicknell-Knight (b. 1996, Suffolk, UK) is a London-based artist and curator working in installation, sculpture, video and digital media. Using found objects and tools made readily available by the internet, as well as drawing from a unique sensibility influenced by participation in online communities and virtual games, Bicknell-Knight’s work explores the divergent methods by which consumer capitalist culture permeates both online and offline society. Utopian, dystopian, automation, surveillance and digitization of the self are some of the themes that arise through Bicknell-Knight’s critical examination of contemporary technologies.

Bicknell-Knight is also the founder and director of isthisit?, a platform for contemporary art, exhibiting over 800 artists since its creation in May 2016. Online, it operates as a gallery producing monthly exhibitions showcasing emerging to mid-career artists, hosting a roster of guest curators experimenting with the medium of the internet to interrogate a variety of concepts. The website also hosts monthly residencies, where artists are given a web page to create new work that exists on the internet as a piece of net art. Offline, it has held exhibitions nationally and internationally and is the publisher of isthisit?, a book series released on a triannual basis.

Selected solo exhibitions include CACOTOPIA 02 at Annka Kultys Gallery, London (2018), Sunrise Prelude at Dollspace, London (2017) and Are we there yet? at Chelsea College of Art, London (2017). Selected group exhibitions include They Live at Platform Southwark, London (2019), To cite a body at Sluice HQ, London (2019), GROUND ZERO EARTH at Alison Richard Building, Cambridge (2019), Inside Intel at Goldsmiths, University of London, London (2018), Total Power Exchange at Galerie Manque, New York (2018), Paper Cuts at Saatchi Gallery, London (2018), Terms and Conditions May Apply at Annka Kultys Gallery, London (2018), The Museum Has Abandoned Us at State of the Art, Berlin (2017) and The Choice of a New Generation at The Muse Gallery, London (2017).

Daniel V. Keller 'MRR/ Modelling Rock Resilience'

MRR/MRP is a model proposing ideas on how to restore and reactivate landscapes such as mountain ranges that have been heavily disturbed by human interaction through mining for rare earth and stone. The hole that is left behind, a vacuum that reveals the stories written throughout millenias, marks a space of absence, but also of possibilities.

Extracted lithic material is cut to size, comodified, and repurposed elsewhere. A massife exploded into components and distributed worldwide following trade paths to materialize ideas on a built environment. The project is placed in Google’s warehouse for 3D models for immediate use and exchange.

Environmental transformations and the tension in the meshwork of human and nonhuman relationships are key subjects in Daniel V. Keller’s multidisciplinary practice. The shaping of deposited histories in earth layers and the architectural outcome as well as the ecological impact this has, is source for the development of his installations. The fictional spaces and spatial vocabularies are serving a surrounding for speculation around posthuman connections and deep time phantasies.

Please be patient when loading the model in the preview window.

Daniel V. Keller lives and works in Zürich and London. He graduated from the Ceramic Design Class in Bern/CH (2009) and the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam/NL (2012) and is currently in the MFA program at Goldsmiths University in London. He is member of the music collective Circumstances. Selected recent solo exhibitions include Container and Decay, High Gallery Poznan, A piece of cake ZQM, Berlin, Privacy Settings, Stadtgalerie Bern, Super Natural, Mikro Zürich, Attractions, SIGNAL Brooklyn NY, Rear Views, P/////AKT Amsterdam.

Jorik Amit Galama 'Cateater'

A few years ago I wrote a short story about a man who gets addicted to videos of extreme violence and forces his friends and family amongst others to watch them. After reading the story I was brought into contact with a man who shares some similarities with the man in my story.

'Cateater' is based on an interview with this man who watches mainly videos of extreme violence (like beheadings, suicides and traffic accidents) on a regular basis and shares them with friends. In one of the videos he showed me a homeless Russian woman is beaten to death by a group of teenagers with sticks and frying pans - apparently because she ate someone’s cat. The way this video haunted me led to a text on the difficulties of reclaiming and moulding one's memory.

Jorik Amit Galama (1992) is a writer and visual artist. He graduated from the Text and Image department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, took part in the Slow Writing Lab of the Dutch Foundation for Literature and co-founded A day on the essay film. He writes for several art magazines and works on a collection of short stories.

Dominika Trapp 'Peasants in Atmosphere'

Peasants in Atmosphere is a research-based project which aims to counteract the nationalistic interpretation of folk culture, critically interprets the musical heritage of the Hungarian peasantry and tries to create subversive discussions by involving contemporary theories. It connects various art forms (folk music, experimental music, contemporary art) and its primary manifestation being a stage production, a lecture performance and a publication. From the discourses around the crisis of human-nature relations, our musical concept was mostly inspired by the branch that emphasises the importance of mourning in the face of scientific facts that bear witness to irreversible environmental change.

Dominika Trapp (1988, Budapest, Hungary). Recent exhibitions and events include; Where Do We Go From Here?, Galerie Miroslava Kubika, Litomyšl (2018), La Cadute di Poseidone, Castello Dentice di Frasso, Carovigno (2017), Helsinki, Vantaa, Budapest Gallery Artist Exchange Programme (2019).

Stephan Blumenschein 'How to make an exhibition opening'

In this work Stephan Blumenschein presents to us 11 points on the exhibition opening. The main reference for this work is a recording of a lecture by Allan Kaprow titled „How to Make a Happening“ which was released as an LP in 1966 by Mass Art Inc (available on youtube here link address: In 11 points Kaprow lays out the concept of happenings addressing aspects such as the relation of happenings to art in general, art and life, principles of giving form, the use of space and time, resources or rehearsal etc. In his video „How to make an exhibition opening“ Stephan Blumenschein translates these 11 points by following their underlying questions into his research on the exhibition opening as a independent medium. (

If the common exhibition opening provides us with the aesthetic experience of our time, corresponding with a „general performance“(Sven Lütticken), in which we potentially always work and perform and the distinct time zones of labour and leisure have dissolved: then the exhibition opening can potentially also be the locus from where we can practice new aesthetic experiences for corresponding new forms of organisation of labour. But where and what are the qualities of the exhibition opening if it is understood as a medium in its own right rather than the (social) foreplay to the exhibition? And what comes after an economy governed flexibility and availability?

„How to make an exhibition opening“ is performed by André Chapatte.

Stephan Blumenschein is based in Amsterdam/NL and recently finished his MA at the Dutch Art Institute. Before that he studied art at Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam and the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and philosophy and art history at KU Linz. He works with architectural interventions, text and sound. The artist presented his work and research at ACF/Warsaw, Marwan/Amsterdam, State of Concept/Athens, GOLEB/Amsterdam or bb15/Linz a.o.

Josephine Baan 'MOTHer'

(hybridize the permutations, streamline the form)

Two moths lie dormant in their pupal stage for winter. Until emergence, a periodical live stream of the pupae is broadcasted. Apparently nothing happens.

Proserpinus: there is still time Proserpina: … Proserpinus: there was moss Proserpina: living proof that you don’t need roots to grow

“The earliest written narratives of the Proserpina myth, from which all subsequent versions derive, animate a watershed cultural event: the replacing of the predominant matriarchal worship of the Great Goddesses of the earth (Demeter, Persephone) in ancient Greece by the patriarchal worship of the Olympian gods. These versions of the myth vivify the social codes of patriarchy, codes that have been passed down to Western societies as part of their Hellenic heritage.”

Lorraine Byrne Bodley, “From Mythology to Social Politics: Goethe’s Proserpina”

Josephine Baan lives and works through movement and its margins. Materially and performatively thinking between things, beings and situations, she works with change; material change and repetitive reflection on works and moments. Consciously switching perspective to influence roles and readings of power and control in relation to affection and gestures of care. Process and time are both key to the practice.

She is a member of Friendly Stalking; a community of practitioners working in the fields of art, design and science, who engage in designing collaborative, non-hierarchical learning environments. Recent exhibitions and performances include; MOTH at Museum KKLB in Beromünster, CH; A Brief History of Becoming Rock at Art Rotterdam in Rotterdam, NL; The Benefits of Living in a Restaurant at Pavilion in Rotterdam, NL; Nothing 2 C Here at Alkovi Galleria in Helsinki, FI; and It’s a Dirty Job, with Maëlle Gross, at Foound in Geneva, CH.

Alex Frost 'Wet Unboxing (Big Mac)'

For Cosmos Carl, Frost has opened a Big Mac underwater and uploaded it to the free stock video sharing site Pexel.

In Alex Frost’s ‘wet unboxing’ videos, time saving and energising ‘on-the-go’ products are unpacked underwater. These videos are made in response to the unboxing videos which enact a vicarious consumption, allowing the consumer to get their ‘hit’ without having to own the product. To date Frost has circulated his wet unboxing videos through prosumer formats like YouTube and Instagram and they have since gone on to feature in the broader worldwide network of online media with articles in The Guardian, Know Your Meme, Coeval Magazine, Mashable, Vice Motherboard. Circulating in this mediated way these videos echo the fluidity of the ‘on-the-go’ lifestyle of the products they feature. Just as the products are plucked from across food, drink and the medicine sections of the supermarket the videos themselves appear embedded in a spectrum of online media.

Frost tackles the ultimate ‘on-the-go’ food, by opening underwater the iconic Big Mac burger. This video has been circulated via the free stock video sharing site Pexel. The potential fluidity of this free sharing format is matched by the global ubiquity of this iconic fast food.

Alex Frost is an artist based in London.

Victoria Sin Daddy issues, daddy figure, daddy porn, baby daddy, zaddy, a power that is not abused, a caring but firm presence who will take you by the hand, wipe your mouth, make you cum and tell you everything is going to be ok.

Victoria Sin (b. 1991, Toronto CA) is an artist using speculative fiction within performance, moving image, writing, and print to interrupt normative processes of desire, identification, and objectification. Drawing from close personal encounters of looking and wanting, their work presents heavily constructed fantasy narratives on the often unsettling experience of the physical within the social body.

Viktor Briestensky 'Feeling the weight'

A short narrative work weaving a seemingly abstract history of cheese and its entanglement with shoplifting, property crime and perversion. Investigating and creating visual, phonetic and metaphorical links between cheese as a slang for and as a form of currency while exploring various myths and truths surrounding the edible mold.

Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

Morpheus: Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?

Neo: I was...

Morpheus: Look again.

Morpheus: Freeze it.

Neo: This... this isn't the Matrix?

Morpheus: No. It is another training program designed to teach you one thing: if you are not one of us, you are one of them.

SHIFT engages with stages of automation of the trucking industry in Russia, working with the socio-political, physical, and spatial particulars of logistics in the country’s vast territory. In order to address this, Shift re-thinks the role of the truckers union, and engages with it structurally to facilitate its transformation along with the introduction of network effects and consolidation of data collection.

SHIFT team is a part of The New Normal think-tank at Strelka institute, Moscow. It is a team of four: Dmitry Alferov, a developer with a focus on machine vision technologies currently based in Berlin; Elizaveta Dorrer, an architect and researcher in urbanism and emerging technologies from Moscow; Christian Lavista, an architect from Buenos Aires; Arthur Röing Baer, Berlin-based critical designer.

Project introduction by Benjamin Bratton:

SHIFT examines the perils and potential of automated transportation on Russia’s roads, but instead of driverless taxis in the city they look at automation of the trucking routes that link cities with the rest of the country.

The project directly takes on two of the thorniest issues: how can automation defend decentralized control of production and distribution, and even passage toward more centralized and more fully automated systems ensues in the long term, how can we ensure a soft landing for those most directly affected by labor displacement?

Filmed on the road in Dagestan and Moscow, and working directly with OCR Russian truckers union, SHIFT models a scenario in which trucker-owned driverless vehicles man the roads, connected through a shared platform applications.

Bora Akinciturk 'Café Earthbound Paradigm'

The shaman employs a mode of operation known as "bricolage" (from the French "bricoleur", "handyman"). Unlike the engineer, who has some idea of "theoretical principles" which underly a given "practical implementation", the bricoleur has a set of techniques from which they pick and choose the appropriate "tool" to be used in the situation at hand. It is not necessary to understand why something works, only that it does work. The shaman's set of tools include a set of symbolic associations to help determine how to affect certain spirits. For example, eagle feathers would be useful in contacting the archetypal Eagle.

Shamans traditionally are associated with a community, and serve as the community's healer/psychiatrist/miracle-worker. When the community has a problem that "mundane" means cannot solve, they go to the shaman for supernatural assistance. The shaman also orchestrates the rituals which bind the community together.

The techno-shamanic worldview is an extension of this. It involves a belief that humanity's technological infrastructure has become so complex and vast that it cannot be entirely understood through use of an engineering-type theoretical construct. However, this technological infrastructure obviously has a direct impact on how we live our lives. Thus, the techno-shaman serves the community by accessing the technological infrastructure, not as a tool-user ordering their machine to do something, but as one sentient being negotiating with another for the performance of a service.

Arnar Ásgeirsson 'The Great Escape'

A mini comic by Arnar Ásgeirsson for Cosmos Carl

Arnar Ásgeirsson tells stories in various forms, with text and spoken word, videos, drawings, performances, installations and sculptures.

By combining and mixing and applying the right spices, Arnar creates work that takes the viewer on a journey of new discoveries and perspectives. With appropriating objects and putting them in motion as characters into new scenarios, hoping to create new unexpected narratives.

Sometimes the creations have a functional aspect to them. With the possibility to be handled, used or even consumed. They create a moment of participation or performance by whoever is brave enough to interact. By having this element of function to them, the work often cries out for collaboration of other creators of different disciplines. Other subjects more of the emotional kind, dealing with emotional curves and the search for happiness.

Basel Abbas &
Ruanne Abou-Rahme

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

Basel Abbas and Rouen Abu-Rahme explore the modernity that hovers in an enduring crisis and is concentrated on the present, formulated in terms of desire and disaster.

The artists challenge the current agenda and are looking for opportunities to create new images and language, trying to escape from colonial and capitalist discourses. Abbas and Abu-Rahme turn to the past, opening random intersections in plots, gestures, figures and geographical locations and using them as a basis for an alternative view of the present. Arguing the nonlinearity, expressed in the form of amnesia and deja vu, the artists articulate the gaps between reality and fiction (fiction, myths, desires), between the existing and the possible. In many respects, their artistic process consists in the search for research materials, both existing and made by the artists themselves. They add new stories from the fragments they collected: sounds, images, objects and texts.

Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme (b.1983) work together across a range of sound, image,text, installation and performance practices. Solo presentations include Kunstverein Hamburg (Hamburg), Krannert Art Museum (Illinois), AltBomonti (Istanbul), ICA (Philadelphia), Office for Contemporary Art (Oslo), Carroll/Fletcher (London), Akademie Der Kuenste Der Welt (Cologne), New Art Exchange (Nottingham) and Delfina Foundation (London). Selected group exhibitions include Kunstgebaude Stuttgart (Stuttgart), Portikus (Frankfurt), The Mistake Room (Los Angeles), Se Ma Biennale (Seoul), Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna), Museum Of Modern Art (Warsaw), ICA (London), the 12th Sharjah Biennale, the 31st São Paulo Biennial; the 10th Gwangju Biennale; the 13th Istanbul Biennial; the 6th Jerusalem Show; Home Works 5 (Beirut); and Palestine c/o Veniceat the 53rd Venice Biennale.

Базель Аббас и Руан Абу-Рахме

Базель Аббас и Руан Абу-Рахме исследуют современность, которая зависла в непреходящем кризисе и сконцентрирована на настоящем, сформулированном в терминах желания и катастрофы.

Художники оспаривают нынешнюю повестку и ищут возможности для создания новых образов и языка, пытаясь уйти от колониального и капиталистического дискурсов. Аббас и Абу-Рахме обращаются к прошлому, открывая случайные пересечения в сюжетах, жестах, фигурах и географических местоположениях и используя их как основу для альтернативного взгляда на настоящее. Рассуждая о нелинейности, выраженной в форме амнезии и дежавю, художники артикулируют зазоры между реальностью и вымыслом (выдумкой, мифами, желаниями), между существующим и возможным. Во многом их художественный процесс состоит в поиске исследовательских материалов, как существующих, так и сделанных самими художниками. Они складывают новые истории из собранных ими фрагментов: звуков, изображений, объектов и текстов.

FemArtNet 'Mapping Medellín 2018'

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

FemArtNet_mapping Medellín 2018 is a research process mapping the city of Medellín visualizing, giving access and connecting a network of programmes, actions, and processes that, through artistic practices and cultural projects, fight for equality and the empowerment of women in Medellín. With a feminist and de-colonial perspective, and utilising the digital mapping techniques, they understand art and culture as a symbolic construct that can generate change and awareness of the lived experiences of cis- and trans-woman in Medellín.

FemArtNet_mapping Medellín 2018 - это художественный исследовательский проект в форме интерактивной карты Медельина, на которой собраны художественные и культурные инициативы, отстаивающие права женщин этого города. Опираясь на цифровые технологии и феминистические и антиимпериалистические позиции, FemArtNet интерпретирует искусство и культуру как символические инструменты для расширения информационного поля и изменения жизни цисгендерных и трансгендерных женщин Медельина.

Puck Vonk 'No Body to our Friendship'

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

'No Body to our Friendship' is a sound installation of 138 tracks. The piece continues in the shape of a graphical notation present in the room (like unveiling the script behind the scenes) and a performance.

Can you be friends with an app? Artificial intelligence having fun! The day that Google Translate and Siri became friends....

A dialogue between these two female voice generators, the start of their friendship, how it could evolve and what difficulties they might face... Siri is verbally not as ‘out there’ as Google Translate who will say anything that comes to mind, anything that you can type literally. With Siri it takes a while and some persistence before she tells you anything about herself, and even then, she keeps bringing the conversation back to you. “This is about you, not me” she says a lot, just like “I aim to please” and “I’m sorry”. She really puts her friends before herself.

In her work she simultaneously questions the voice as a powerful, evocative tool that influences the experience of reality and the status of the (own) female voice in current society. She explores the voice as an critical object embedded in the post-digital society, whereby feminism becomes an active gesture to debunk preconceptions about behaviours in digital terms. The way interactions shape both our identities and relations, to make you aware of the disparities in representation, the implicit forms of control over the body (and the voice), and the repercussions of the usage of female voices in the allegedly neutral digital sphere.

Recent exhibitions include: Troebel Neyntje - Multiplied, group show, curated by Susan Kuijpers and Troebel Neyntje, multiple ‘It all starts with breathing - graphical notations for performance’, June 2018 and De Garage Rotterdam, performance ‘It all starts with breathing’ in Detached Involvement, curated by Bas Hendrikx, Brandstof event with Poetry International, June 2018.

Пюк Фонг

Опираясь на феминистскую идеологию, Пюк Фонг работает с голосом как инструментом борьбы с предрассудками в цифровом пространстве. Ее новая работа инсценирует диалог между Siri и Google Translate, которые обмениваются наиболее популярными запросами в каждой из этих систем. Художница выявляет

тенденциозность репрезентации, неявные формы контроля над телом и голосом и последствия использования женских голосов в предположительно нейтральной цифровой среде.

Jasmijn Visser 'The Stopper Draws'

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

Jasmijn Visser’s new commission The Stopper draws its title from a personal tale. Ruth, the artists’ grandmother, earned her livelihood producing mechanisms for industrial clocks in the Burk factory in the Black Forest. There she drilled holes in gears for over three decades.

An infamous protagonist in the Burk factory was known as The Stopper. Once a month, he would monitor the workers’ productivity and efficiency, one at a time. On a small stool, he sat by Ruth, and audited her production and assembly pace, stopping the time with the finishing of each tiny element. Careful not to work either faster or slower than usual, she would work on the mechanics in complete synchronicity with The Stopper. With this act a tiny universe was created: The Stopper stopping time in the time production factory.

In an era marked by efficiency protocols, digitisation, and decreasing attention spans, Jasmijn Visser’s work The Stopper pays tribute to mechanics and manual labor, and focuses on the universal notion of the violence within the act of stopping.

In collaboration with Kunsthalle Amsterdam

The Stopper is part I of a collaboration between Jasmijn Visser & Jungki Beak. Part II will be shown at Song Eun Project Space in Seoul September 2018, in collaboration with Delfina Foundation.

Jasmijn Visser works on the intersection of art, writing, research and design. She has a deeply rooted fascination in the structural foundation of contemporary society and geopolitical conflict. Her projects comprise long term (on-site) research and interdisciplinary collaboration. Visser took part in the postgraduate program at De Ateliers, and studied Fine Arts at the School of the Arts Utrecht as well as Visual Art & Design. She has exhibited at Museum van Loon, Amsterdam, Gallery Aeroplastics, Brussels, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Witte de With Rotterdam, MOMA Moscow, Krasnoyarsk Museum Centre, Kunsthal Rotterdam, Tou Scene Stavanger, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Marienkirche Greifswald, Museum of Fine Arts Ekatarinburg, State Museum Kazan, Castrum Peregrini Amsterdam, a.o. She has won the Piet Bakker Prize and the Gasunie Kunstprijs, and was nominated for the Prix de Rome and Sybren Hellinga Kunstprijs.

Ясмейн Виссер, «Остановщик» Новая работа Ясмейн Виссер «Остановщик» берет свое название из истории семьи художницы. Бабушка Ясмейн Руфь зарабатывала на жизнь тем, что собирала механизмы для настенных часов на заводе Burk в Шварцвальде. На протяжении трех десятилетий она сверлила отверстия в часовых механизмах.

Небезызвестным персонажем на заводе был контролер по прозвищу «остановщик». Раз в месяц он фиксировал скорость и качество труда рабочих. Разместившись на небольшом стуле рядом с Руфь, он наблюдал за тем, как она изготавливает и собирает детали, засекая время каждый раз, когда она заканчивала ту или иную микроскопическую деталь. Выполняя действия не быстрее и не медленнее обычного, она работала над механизмами в унисон тому, как контролер замерял время. Это действие складывалось в замкнутый мирок – остановщик останавливал время на заводе по производству часов.

В эпоху автоматизации, регулирования нормами эффективности и сжимающегося периода концентрации внимания работа Ясмейн Виссер напоминает о механическом, ручном труде, акцентируя внимание на насильственной сути действия прерывания.

Работа подготовлена совместно с Кунстхалле Амстердама.

Ramsey Nasser '(pong game) قلب'

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

Ramsey Nasser’s بونج (Pong), is a version of the classic game but written in code entirely in Arabic, highlighting cultural biases of computer science and challenging the assumptions we make about programming. In this way, through قلب, he presents a language that deviates almost entirely from ASCII, which encodes Latin Characters and was originally based on the English Language. As a result, programming has become tied to a single written culture. Hence favouring those who grew up reading and writing in that cultural.

In addition to the language and its interpreter, the قلب project includes a calligraphy series. Traditional Computer Science algorithms are implemented in قلب, and the resulting Arabic source code is used as the content of calligraphy pieces, in effect treating the algorithms as high poetry. Работа Рамси Насера بونج – это вариация классической компьютерной игры, код для которой написан на арабском. Этим жестом Насер выявляет культурную предвзятость компьютерных технологий, заставляя нас пересмотреть общепринятые представления о программировании. Созданный Насером язык почти ничем не схож с системой кодирования ASCII, шифрующей латинские символы и изначально разработанной на английском языке. Кодировка ASCII ограничила программирование одним языком, гарантируя преимущество его носителям.

Помимо языка и его расшифровки, проект включает каллиграфическую серию, выражающую исходный код بونج и таким образом буквально перелагая алгоритмы программирования на язык поэзии.

I am a computer scientist, game designer, and educator who loves to make things that are fun, challenging, and useful.

My work includes games, applications, hardware, programming languages, data visualizations, websites, and more. If it’s original, meaningful, and I get to make it with my own hands, I’m into it. A strong believer that open source is the best way to write software, I share as much of my work as I can.

Behind my passion is a B.S. in Computer Science from the American University of Beirut, an M.F.A. in Design and Technology from Parsons The New School for Design, an Eyebeam Fellowship and almost a decade of professional experience. At my side are the most talented artists and designers this side of the Atlantic, who I am honored to call my friends and collaborators.

Benjamin Grosser ‘Go Rando’

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

Facebook’s “reactions” let you express how you feel about a link, photo, or status. While such data might be helpful for your friends, these recorded feelings also enable increased surveillance, government profiling, more targeted advertising, and emotional manipulation. Go Rando is a web browser extension that obfuscates your feelings on Facebook. Every time you click “Like”, Go Rando randomly chooses one of the six “reactions” for you. Over time, you appear to Facebook’s algorithms as someone whose feelings are emotionally “balanced”. You can still choose a specific reaction if you want to, but even that choice will be obscured by an emotion profile increasingly filled with noise.

Бен Гроссер

Иконки «реакций» в социальной сети Facebook позволяют вам выразить свое отношение к фотографии, статусу или ссылке. Сообщая эмоциональный посыл вашим друзьям, одновременно эти индикаторы собираются в архивы службой государственной безопасности, служат инструментами для слежки, таргетированной рекламы и эмоционального манипулирования. Go Rando – это расширение для браузера, искажающее ваши эмоциональные реакции в сети Facebook. Каждый раз, когда вы нажимаете «Лайк», Go Rando случайным образом выбирает одну из шести эмоций. Отбор происходит таким образом, что со временем ваш профиль считывается сетью Facebook как сбалансированный. Если захотите, вы по-прежнему сможете выбрать определенную эмоцию, но эта осознанный отклик потеряется на фоне случайно генерируемой последовательности. все материалы Art+Feminism, инструкция распространяется по лицензии Creative Commons, мы предлагаем вам адаптировать ее под нужды вашего сообщества.

Benjamin Forster, Julia Bavyka & Sean Dockray ‘Hyperreadings’

*Part of 'This Site is Under Revolution' an online continuation of 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art Strategic Project curated by Barbara Cueto.

Reading lists are aesthetic objects that both organise and produce knowledge. They are paths in, through, and between things. Sharing what we read, what we want to read, and what we think other people should read becomes a form of peer to peer education, the propagation of informal and personal canons.

Reading lists are being used as tools for contesting established patterns in public thinking, but also, importantly, for publicly making sense of our current times. They are becoming almost like manifestos, or provocations for the future.

Списки для чтения – это эстетические объекты, производящие и организующие знания. Делясь тем, что мы читаем, тем, что мы собираемся прочитать, и тем, что, как нам кажется, нужно прочитать другим людям, мы создаем систему децентрализованного образования, культивируем неформальные, субъективные правила.

Это инструмент противостояния общественным нормам и, что немаловажно, публичного осмысления нашего времени. Подобно манифестам они дают импульс будущим изменениям.

Reykjavik Police ‘Detained Items - Burglary’

The Reykjavik Police is known for being an active user of various social platforms to engage with their public. One of them is a pinterest account which serves as a way to find the owners of lost, found items. For Cosmos Carl the Reykjavik Police has put together a new collection of Bulgralarized items. It is an aesthetic research into unfortunate loss of personal items and the embodiment of civil disobedience. With this collection they hope to find the owners of the items that they have detained from their most recent investigations.

“If you think you have any claim on a an item advertised on our profile, please send us a query / information along with a reference via email or contact Leifur Gauti at the Police Office in Hafnarfjörður, tel. +354 444 1140.” - The Reykjavik Police

Reykjavik Police, founded in 1814, aims to maintain law and order to ensure its citizens' legal public security. Their main task is to counteract crime and to prevent acts that endanger the safety- and property rights of citizens and the state. The Reykjavik Police provides the state with protection and assistance in carrying out their duties in accordance with the law.

Auður Ómarsdóttir 'The Legendary Saloon'

Coming to you straight from the Rocky Mountains!

Artist Auður Ómarsdóttir has been creating new work during a residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada.

'The Legendary Saloon' is a title for an on-going video performance project that started in Banff. Two pieces, 'Cry me a river' and 'Goodbye', will be premiered on Cosmos Carl on May 11th. They are experimental actions happening in nature that deal with the attempt to reach catharsis.

The title, 'The Legendary Saloon', is inspired by a bar in Banff where guests can ride a mechanical bull and sing karaoke. It works as an imaginary space for the works, where the good times have no end.

Auður Ómarsdóttir (b.1988) is a multi disciplinary artist from Iceland, who finished her B.A in the Icelandic Academy of the Arts in 2013. Her work spans the fields of sculpture, installation, painting, film and performance. Auður is currently an artist in residence in the BAiR Emerging artist program at the Banff Centre for Arts, Canada. Her lates works have been shown in Gallery Outvert, The Art Museum of Akureyri, Gallery Port, The Art Museum of Reykjavik, The Reykjavik Museum of Photography. Auður has an upcoming project with the Wind and Weather gallery for the Reykjavik Art Festival and a solo show in Kling & Bang in September.

Angela Goh 'Scum Ballet, The Movie'

Scum Ballet, The Movie was filmed in one night, by five girls, while we had a sleepover in a kind of strange apartment in a small town on the far outskirts of a big city, while staging an amateur photoshoot, practicing lines from Blue Crush in the bath tub, and going out for McDonalds at 3am.

In 2017 I was commissioned to make a new dance work for Campbelltown Arts Centre. I had the pleasure and absolute time of my life bringing together a group to do this with me - Eugene Choi, Ellen Davies, Verity Mackey and Ivey Wawn. We made and performed the new dance work (Scum Ballet), but along the way we made so much more - magic, love, a gang, life - all produced with the power that being together as a group brought. They gave us a camera and an apartment to live in while in residence, so somehow it was obvious to then also make a movie. Scum Ballet, The Movie is very different to the dance work, but maybe also just the same, because both are about us, as a group. Scum Ballet, The Movie is a bit like behind the scenes or part of the process of Scum Ballet, or perhaps better understood as the prologue or the sequel or a cute cousin. But it also drifts away and is something in its own right. A pup or an offshoot that asserts itself as its own being, with its own personality and autonomy.

Scum Ballet, The Movie is made with and by Eugene Choi, Ellen Davies, Angela Goh, Verity Mackey and Ivey Wawn, while in residence at Campbelltown Arts Centre in 2017.

Angela Goh is an Australian dancer and choreographer. She is working with dance in theatres, galleries, and telepathetic spaces. Her work often deals with tropes of femininity; the supernatural; and dance as both a form and as a force. Her works have been presented around Australia as well as France, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, UK, the USA and SouthEast Asia. Recent presentations include at Performance Space New York (formally ps122), Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Art, Next Wave Festival, and Auto Italia, as well as appearing around Europe as part of Galerie's Group Show, including at the Saal Biennal, Tallin, La Biennale de la Danse, Lyon, Jan Mot Gallery, Brussels, Dansehallerne, Copenhagen, and Menagerie de Verre, Paris.

Jennyfer Haddad & Alessandro Nucci 'In a desk of my own'

The project is displayed on Tumblr; a free online platform. It began as a collection of images of free desks and text ads found on various web platforms including craigslist, Facebook, Gumtree and more.

The collection was digitally treated for the creation of a personal archive and its content was deconstructed into fragments and components. The memory, the identity and the history of the original object/text has been corrupted.

All sourced from the Internet, the Data information is at times partly hidden by other windows or modified, the viewer is exposed to a thought of process represented via a compilation of multiples windows taken by screenshots/recordings. Furthermore, occasionally some elements such as found gifs that were modified, a digitized carpet or even a ginger root, appear in some scenes/posts in what it seem to accompany and support the main collection.

“In a desk of my own” is currently a virtual platform displayed on a Tumblr; the project is shown as a sort of preview showcasing a process of thought in furtherance of a future plan that would be executed on a physical platform.

Jennyfer Haddad was born in 1983 in France. She had exhibited in duo and group exhibitions, among others in Konstanet, Tallinn and Welcome Screen, London. She has also taken part in the online residencies at F8 Residency and isthisit?

Alessandro Nucci was born in 1977 in Italy, The artistic practice developed in recent years revolves around the concept he himself called "trans-exoticism" and the dynamics that revolve around the concept of identity and hybridization. Nucci is also known as co-founder of Pavillon Social, a non-profit project for contemporary art and has been conceived as a kind of migrating Kunstverein since its foundation in Lucca in 2011.

ASAHI 4.0 is HARD-CORE’s new cutting edge curatorial robot. It is the follow up of 7 years of the groups research into robotic curation. It is carefully designed to challenge the traditional and root grown criteria of exhibition making. ASAHI 4.0 consists of a free and open database ( ) where you can upload your profile and have the chance of being selected into one of its upcoming exhibitions. We ran out of juice and now we need your help to secure the future!

With HARD-CORE’s new patronage programme, you can become an official patron of the startup. There are multiple levels of patronships depending on how much you are able to support. We have range of nifty limited-edition pieces that you can receive as a patron. For example an elegant rose gold HARD-CORE badge that can be worn on any occasion. Those who feel that they would like to generously support HARD-CORE will receive a unique silicon skin designed to cover and protect the delicate sensory technology of ASAHI 4.0. The skins are produced as part of Silicon Dreams, HARD-CORE’s investigation into sexist tendencies within tech-aesthetics, where automatons are often sexualized and depicted as female servants in a male dominated tech-industry. Silicon Dreams explores the aestheticization of automation and pursues a potential de-gendering of robotics. You can also support HARD-CORE with smaller amounts and you’ll become an official patron of HARD-CORE, listed on our website.

"In order to finish the programming of the robot and connect it to the database we need funds for hiring experts in the field. Our aim is to create a fully automated curatorial system, enabling every earthling (and aliens) to be selected into exhibitions curated by ASAHI." - Skyler Lindenberg

HARD-CORE is an Amsterdam, London and Paris based art startup, comprised of Hrafnhildur Helgadóttir, Anne de Boer, Saemundur Thor Helgason and Eloise Bonneviot under the guidance of their CEO Skyler Lindenberg.

The collective is focused on the development of automated curatorial applications. The aim is to fully automate the subjective task of curating art exhibitions in order to reach a more democratic system for selecting and displaying art. In 2011 HARD-CORE launched the first ever curatorial robot named ASAHI. This robot curated several exhibitions in Amsterdam which were characterized by their unusual placement of artworks and new relationships between them.

Since the launch of the first version of ASAHI, HARD-CORE has participated in- and organized numerous art exhibitions in The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and Cyberspace. HARD-CORE has taken part in lectures and panel discussions such as Impakt festival 2016 in Utrecht TEXT2SPEECH: Proxy Politics And Withdrawal at ICA London and at Studium Generale of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2017.

Since 2015, HARD-CORE is educating their own module ‘Documentation and Online Presence’ to the BA Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.

HARD-CORE is kindly supported by The European Pavilion and soon by you!

Everyone was on the high frequency trading floor Things were going pretty normal As normal it can be, the market was down 2.5 percent Riots on tv in Greece And every time they showed the Greek riots the market would drop a little And…I remember looking up And like on every trading floor, CNBC is on I saw that the Dow Jones dropped another 100 points A minute later I look up and then it dropped another hundred points I got up of my desk and I walk over to the futures traders And they're scrambling all over the place They don’t know what’s going on They had huge amounts of orders in the market Everything is going crazy The market starts dropping another 100 points And the CEO of the firm comes running out to the floor and he is just screaming PULL EVERYTHING, PULL EVERYTHING

Gnax Type 'Cosmos Skrift' a new typeface specifically designed for Comsos Carl by Gnax Type.

'Cosmos Skrift' was conceived following a discussion with Cosmos Carl about a possible collaboration with Gnax Type type foundry. An opportunity like this – to design a typeface with total creative freedom, into a space with such open minded aesthetics – does not come around to often. Attempting to create a new typeface for CC was a no-brainer.

Generating a concept/solution is of course a bit more complex than the simple action of accepting a challenge. Cosmos Skrift is the formalization of one line of thought out of an infinite number of possible ones. To keep a sense of direction in a vast stream of possibilities Gnax Type has adopted the strategy of approaching concepts in the most naïve way possible. In the case of CC the simple taglines „digital“ and „parasite“ became guidelines for the construction of the alphabet. The digital aspect clearly demands a strict modularity. The parasitism demands that the construction of the letters be based in an established tradition – so calligraphy became Gnax Type’s point of departure. The outcome is a forced union of these disparate things – digitality & calligraphy – hopefully resulting in a typeface that defies any immediate categorisation.

Gnax Type type foundry was founded in 2017 by Reykjavik based graphic- and type designer Gabríel Markan. Gabríel graduated from the graphic design department at Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2017 and has since worked as a freelance graphic- and type designer for various clients in Iceland, Europe and India.

The Saturday Museum #flowfortune #collectivemillionaire

#flowfortune began at Varosi (an ex greek Cypriot working mens club) we inhabited for six months in 2017. It has so far included, meddling with money, penny portraits, bubble gazing, tasseography and making favours for a fig tree.

Currently twice a week (wed/ sat) are are sharing lottery numbers via facebook @saturdaymuseum and Instagram @lucysteggals @every_body_works #collectivemillionaire. Please do check in and get your tickets so you to can become a collective millionaire.

On the 13th and 23th of February 2018 we will be broadcasting two special live lottery number draws.

The Saturday Museum (TSM) is a collaborative project run by Lucy Steggals and George Moustakas. An itinerant, mobile museum TSM explores alternative models of participation and is interested in connecting people locally, nationally and internationally. The way it works is by intuitively starting a FLOW on a theme. These themes emerge because they reflect a present concern of TSM. The FLOW acts as a flexible frame; a soft structure; a play space; allowing for something haptic and collaborative to evolve. FLOW’s are always triangular - a combination of lived experience, digital dialogue and physical output. Within each FLOW there is space for variation, accident, the unexpected and the troublesome.

Madeleine Stack 'Videosnack'

'Videosnack' in its first iteration lasted from February 5, 2013-January 31, 2014, when I arrived in a new city. Videosnack 2 started on October 1, 2015, the beginning of winter in London, and is ongoing. The space in between, I can’t say anything about. My life then was unwatched.

Mostly, it is a record of gestures. You destroy the gesture when it is watched. Like a fisherman I only remember the ones that got away, unrecorded. Short or blurry, shot while on foot, trying not to be seen. Weather, the movement of light, the movement of bodies in the street, small choreographies of object and human, street scenes. Sometimes, in life, nothing happens. I remember nothing of one day except what the archive tells me: the hair of a woman being tugged insistently out the open window of a train. So much of life has to be forgotten.

Madeleine Stack is an artist and writer. She recently completed an MFA at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has written for Bomb Magazine, Salt, Dissect Journal, aqnb, Runway and Eyeline. Recent shows include How are you still clean? at ICA, London, Divers, at The Old Waterworks, Southend, Fatal Softness at The Koppel Project, London, and screenings at Trans-Pecos, NY and The Southbank Centre, London. Upcoming shows include Future-skinned at Metro Arts, and End of the World, at Wreckers, Brisbane. She is a co-founder of Fake Estate ARI and co-editor of Canal. Her novella, Vitrinerie, was published in 2017 by Nubile Press.

Camilla Rhodes & Zoë Claire Miller 'Nude with Socks'

And how are your
teeth today? Can
you afford to fix them?
How high is your rent?
Do you know
what the message of Western
Civilization is? I am alone.
Am I alone tonight?
I don’t think so.
-- E.M.

Camilla Rhodes lives and works in Mexico. She is an alter ego, a webcam artist hosted by MyFreeCams, where she broadcasts live from her studio. In her studio she creates different sets and characters that she performs (in) in front of the camera. Viewers on MFC can also watch her make art and fetish objects that she then sells on her profile page. The website takes 40% of the money she earns, much like a contemporary art gallery. Sometimes she invites other female artists to perform on her show. She combines eroticism and art making as a means to sustain herself and her art practice while Having Fun. You can visit her on

Zoë Claire Miller lives and works in Berlin and Mexico City as an artist/curator. She earned her diploma in sculpture in Germany in 2010. She is on the board of the artists' union Berlin (bbk berlin e.V.), co-founded the artist-run Berlin Art Prize as well as the collective Utopian Union. She has participated in residencies and exhibited in different places. She works in sculpture and installation, often taking coincidental encounters and localized phenomena as a point of departure to weave counter-narratives based on them. She is interested in how a public can be constituted of non-human entities, and the sense of touch.

CRA 2018 'Unless the Water is Safer than Land: Documenting Australia’s Violations of Human Rights at Sea'

Over a few months, the collectivity of the CRA 2018 at Goldsmiths University has investigated cases of boat turn-backs and take-backs at sea between Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Australia and New Zealand. The cases feature conflicts between asylum seekers and state order, in an operation coined by the Australian military in 2014 as “Operation Sovereign Borders”. These investigations have undertaken spacial, cartographic, legal and forensic methodologies in order to better understand government sovereignty upon asylum seekers at sea and the criminal violences these actions engender.

CRA 2018 is the collectivity of students making the MA Research Architecture at Goldsmiths University of London for the academic year 2017-18.

The linear time is curled up into a loop. Memories are digitally stored, only to be reassembled in an altered order, copied and sampled into hybridised worlds within a present where thoughts, memories and soon genes are stolen from each and everyone at all times.

Anna Mikkola is based in London. Her work explores the ways that technology alters human subjectivity and probes the boundaries of the human. Her research considers how interfaces and infrastructures format reality. The work often materialises as videos and installations depicting narratives where different entities and points in time are woven together. Anna’s work has been shown, amongst others, at ICA and Jupiter Woods in London, Lighthouse in Brighton, Sonic Acts in Amsterdam, INDEX 19 and Minibar at Stockholm. Her work has been featured in publications such as Kaleidoscope, Rhizome and DIS Magazine. She has given talks at Goldsmiths University (London), ECAL (Lausanne) and the New Museum in NYC.

ACG 'Lets Collaborate!'

ACG would like to extend an offer to all artists, organisations and exhibition spaces to collaborate on the creation of new and exciting projects.

ACG is a new organisation and model that facilitates the creation of jobs, money and housing for artists by building and sustaining relationships between commercial/public organisations and artists.

Having successfully trialled our working model we are hoping to find new artists, partner organisations and exhibitions spaces to put into practice our mission of creating scalable, sustainable opportunities for artists.

ACGs goal is to help develop artists practices, break down barriers between artists and organisations, help organisations find new audiences, help organisations develop their brand identity, remunerate artists, test and grow ACG as an organisation and artwork and to develop lasting, generative collaborations.

To better understand our working model and for more information as the organisation/artwork grows please visit our new website at:

We at ACG are committed to making our current social/political conditions work for artists and organisations alike. By pairing artists with organisations that relate specifically to the artists’ practice we feel we are well placed to implement a structured and scalable approach to tackling the issues and constraints that face artists today.

NB: ACG is a working model, an organisation and an artwork. The projects and scenarios created will be aimed at finding remuneration for artists practices. While remuneration for artists is one of our goals we are also committed to breaking down the barriers between artists and organisations. The projects and scenarios created will most likely take time until remuneration will be set in place for the artist. We believe through the creation of more and more collaborations we will be able to develop a wide network of partners, in turn creating more and more of a possibility for our goals to become scalable and remuneration to become more efficient.

ACG is a new start-up model and organisation created by the artist Robbie Howells. Robbie lives in London and completed his MFA at Goldsmiths College in 2017. His practice is concerned with scalability in the Big Society.

Katie Hare 'A Shorthand For Violence'

Since 2015, when I encountered an entire video library abandoned in a skip, I have been cultivating a stock footage library of discarded video material; hours of images, dislocated from their meaning. The skip incident was a catalyst, totemic of a stark value judgement on what deserves to be archived and what feels like an encroaching lack of space – to live, to work, to play, to experiment, to consider.

Some of the videos I found were already historically significant, some still recent enough to not to have achieved this status, however viewed in 2017 the footage is charged both by the circumstances of its discovery and how its content speaks to our current situation. Taking into consideration the potential for a historically reflexive relationship with the material, a shorthand for violence is a playlist of 12 short, silent films created from discarded material from the early 2000s and earlier, reworked in the context of 2017, accompanied by 12 short stories.

Katie Hare lives and works in London. Working largely in video, but also across performance, sound and text, her work examines the effects of the increasing rapidity of technological progress, particularly with regards to memory and obsolescence and the way narrative and storytelling is shifting as a result of this development. Recent exhibitions and screenings include Touching The Void (CRATE, Margate, 2017), Red Mansion Prize Exhibition 2017 (St John’s College, Oxford, 2017), Portal Atop A Bus Stop (CAC, Vilnius, Lithuania, 2016) and Constructs: Katie Hare, Callum Hill, Ellie Power (LUX Moving Image, London, 2016)

Dorota Gawęda & Eglė Kulbokaitė 'Agatha'

Agatha Valkyrie Ice started as an open-source personality within a Google Doc format, that offered a space for communal authorship to materialise through a critically inclusive practice. The open-ended, cloud-based film script has been a compendium of all Ai* activity, a diary, a rant, a selection of dated newsfeed stories and a plagiarised theoretical treatise on becoming real and becoming virtual. For Cosmos Carl, Agatha Valkyrie Ice opens up one last time as a source book of disjointed notes accumulated through the years of Ai activity.

*Here we use the pronoun Ai: Ai has a content that does not distinguish itself from other things or beings, because the me subject is either pure negativity or a splitting movement; it is consciousness. There’s no more self, me. We are all Ai. Ai is Ai. No subject. No desire. Used instead of I/ you/ he/ she/ it/ her/ his/ they/ them/ etc. ‘Ai’ (in hiragana あい, in katakana アイ, in kanji 愛, 藍, 亜衣) is a Japanese feminine given name. Ai could mean love, affection (愛), or indigo (藍). Ai could mean Asian clothes. Ai is the main character of the Ursula K. Le Guin story The Left Hand of Darkness, often called Genry by the Karhiders, who have trouble pronouncing the letter L in Ai language. Ai is, also AI.

Created in 2014 by Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė, initially Agatha Valkyrie Ice was a virtual alter-ego, an open-ended script, an open-ended script, a social-media entity, a live-feed on becoming-real and becoming-virtual, an evolution of forms, relations of matter as well as form and the intervals between, a consideration directed towards the idea of post-gender allowing a multiplicity of voices to take part in collective performance. Ai was an experiment towards the alternate language and understanding of gender, towards defining one’s own personality in relation to the surrounding communities. This thought experiment led Agatha to evolve from a fictional post-gender character confined framework of social media platforms to an artistic strategy to explore contemporary parallels in identity and artistic production. The avatar has had a multitude of pragmatic uses: Agatha was a companion species, here to think with and to invent a body and a sexuality of one’s own. Ai’s character was fluctuating between digital and virtual and was articulated in the world of materials through installation, via sculptural objects or within molecular constellations of odours produced for the virtual body. Agatha Valkyrie Ice was a curator ( OSLO1O, Basel), an artist, the language Ai used, an artwork, a collaborative endeavour or space of enquiry. As a nomadic identity Agatha Valkyrie Ice was an avatar in a permanent state of impermanence. In the past Agatha Valkyrie Ice has participated in many collaborations with musicians, artists, writers, spaces: digital and actual, including: Catherine Prieto Österberg, SALTS (Basel), Rosie Hastings and Hannah Quinlan Anderson, Elin Gonzalez, Gabor Szabo, Manuel Scheiwiller, International Flavors and Fragrances Inc.

Rosa Doornenbal 'A Wonderful Way to Unwind, Magic touch quality massage'

Welcome to this high quality pioneering massage, focusing on the fingers’ special touch:

With light kneading and padding techniques sore spots will soften, allowing you to let go of unwanted worries and the baggage of stress from daily life. In circular kneading rotations the beautiful fingers will then prepare you for more intensive rubbing, making sure all built up tension in the body will be released.

We are waiting for you in a nice environment with soft music, aromatic candles, hot oil and lots of love. Its all about touch and feelings.

Appointments can be made in between 10.00 AM and 10.00 PM during weekdays. All Genders are Welcome.

This is a free service with the only compensation that the massage provided will be filmed. In agreement it can be filmed without the face being visible (anonymous).

In a world full of hoaxes and false promises the advertisement ‘wonderful ways to unwind, magic touch quality massage’ thrives effortlessly, simulating the visual and verbal language of wellness culture.

The ad on gumtree can be seen as part of Rosa Doornenbals recent interest in the power dynamic that can be found within touch and gestures, whereby the finger functions as instigator and facilitator. The ad plays with the intimacy of ones own body versus the capitalization of ways of caring for the body in the beauty and health industry. Although being sincere in its offer, it is hard to tell who exactly will benefit.

Rosa Doornenbal (NL) lives and works in London. She is currently in her final year of the MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths University. Recent showcasing of work include a solo show in Higure Center for Contemporary art in Tokyo, a screening at Mono8 in Courtyard Theatre in London and a performance taking part in Deptford X Festival. She is co-initiator and -curator of ‘changing room’, a collaboration with Marios Stamatis, inviting artists to create wearable pieces of work running from an unused changing room in Deptford.

Alison "The document 'How To Have Sex With Me' is a description of my sexuality as I understood it, as of a year ago when it was written. It documents what my desires and experiences were in a sexual context as accurately as I could perceive them.

It was originally written so that I could communicate all the facts about my interests to a new partner, to avoid the likelihood of error if I tried to go over everything in the heat of the moment.

Overtime, it became independent of this purpose, and people I had no sexual contact with read and commented on it anyway."

Alison is a transgender blogger originally from the Caribbean. One of her strongest interests is human sexuality, with a subfocus in how one can be comfortable in one’s body as a transgender person.

Anton Lyngdal aka Mr.Awkward 'Mr.Awkward'

The Characteristics of Mr.Awkward: misunderstood, dyslexic-artist, weird, silly, funny, straightforward, mysterious, and capable of showing every emotion.

Mr.Awkward is trying to be a professional rapper. However, his attitude has now changed towards making ‘funny’ rap, and singing in Icelandic and English. Mr.Awkward tries to exert a certain standard of professionalism with everything he does. Mistakes do occur and tend to become part of the performances, creating a funny tension between professionalism and natural behaviour.

“The Group started 28 August 2014. Then I called the group “Funny videos” It was at the same time when I was starting my study at the Glass department in Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Then I was doing a lot of weird videos on the program in my MacBook called “Photo Booth”. And I was only in to building up a video in low resolution and as quickly as possible. Later on I started to build up a characteristics character called 'Mr.Awkward'. Then I started to have longer videos and better quality resolution, 4K and HD.”

The Mr.Awkward Facebook group contains over 100 video's to be watched.

Anton Lyngdal a.k.a Mr.Awkward (b. 1983 Iceland) lives and works in Amsterdam (soon to be living and working in Rotterdam). He graduated from his BA at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2017 from The Large Glass Department. He got nominated to Best artwork in Fine art in the GRA Awards 2017. He is in an art collective group called MADLAB. Instagram: Themadlab. Youtube channel: Mr.Awkward show.

Anton works mainly with Theme in his projects, does not matter what kind of materials he uses. He is a Visual-, Performance-, Installations and Video Artist.

Jacopo Calonaci 'Catonacci_official'

Catonacci_official is the Instagram page of a bankrupt artist who has become a cat-sitter in order to pay for his student loan. A goal was set to eventually receive a catfood brand sponsorship (or major tobacco company). Undeniably, Cats are one the most valuable internet currencies; a good rival to actual gold in the real world, as 10 million views of a properly marketed Youtube video compilation of cats being funny is worth an approximate sum of 500.000.00$ on a monetized account, and that’s about 11 kilos of gold (considering the net price of 40.68$ per gram). With simple hashtagging, liking and commenting on other cat photos, within 2 months I gathered 1k followers. Just to give a comparison: my dreary Instagram of illustrations made 284 followers in 1 year.

Dan Hett & Helen Knowles 'Algorithmic content machine'

'Algorithmic content machine' explors how humans interact with machine made decisions. The Algorithm is made to scour the web for images which reflect prescribed interests and are posted to an instagram account. It follows an algorithmic take over of the Zabludowicz Collections instagram account during the Invites show by Helen Knowles where she presented the work, The Trial of Superdebthunterbot.

Dan Hett is a BAFTA-winning multidisciplinary digital artist and creative technologist from Manchester, UK. He spent a while building big things for millions of small humans with BBC Children's, and then a year on the bleeding edge with BBC Research & Development. Dan now operates a solo artist and creative tech, and is one of the selected artists on FutureEverything's cutting-edge FAULT LINES program.

Away from the studio, Dan is a live performing visual artist, using homegrown software and tools to create improvised large-scale sonic and visual experiences for concerts, festivals and increasingly collaboration in the arts. Dan is a prominent member of the Algorave movement - an ongoing series of electronica events where all music and visuals are created entirely with live code and process, which is shared with the audience as part of the experience. Dan is also an accomplished live video artist and VJ, and has performed at scales ranging from countless sweaty basement chiptune shows right up to a headline slot at the legendary Superbyte Festival, and a recent Algorave session at Blue Dot Festival, in the shadow of the Lovell radio telescope.

Helen Knowles (b.1975) London /Manchester is a multi-media artist working in print, photography and video. I am preoccupied with the way the virtual and digital world meets forms of life, particularly in the social realm, teasing out questions of responsibility and autonomy. I explore the new sovereign territories of the internet and how these grind upon the old ‘horizontal’ sovereign territories of land, sea, mineral wealth and state.

Helen Knowles b1975 has a BA Hons from Glasgow School of Art and MFA Fine Art from Goldsmiths University. She lectures widely around the UK and abroad. Recent shows include; 'Codex' D21, Leipzig, The Trial of Superdebthunterbot, Invites show, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2017) Gender Generation, Royal College of Art, Between the Lines, GRAD,London, UnderConstruction,Moscow (2016), Collaborate, Oriel Sycarth, (2015), PrivateView:PublicBirth, GV Art, London (2013), Goldsmiths Women’s Library (2013), Life Is Beautiful, Galerie Deadfly, Berlin (2012); Digital Romantics, Dean Clough Gallery (2012) and Walls are Talking,Whitworth Art Gallery (2010).

Halla Einarsdóttir 'Spies Lies and Sunken Subs' is an Ebook

'Spies Lies and Sunken Subs’, is an interactive PDF that discloses, that gathers, that overlooks the multiple rumours of a small town crook, turned CIA agent, turned inventor. The stories as he told them, the stories as the people he told them to remember them, the stories how he exaggerated them, the stories filtered by the people he exaggerated them to. Whether they filtered the stories consciously or unconsciously with memory, with personal interests, with scepticism, with their own filling-in-the-blanks and so on. Merging the different sides of each story into one narration, with clues to be found on each spread, it is left up to you, the reader, to choose what to believe and how you prefer the stories go.

Halla Einarsdóttir (b. 1991, Iceland) lives and works in Amsterdam. She graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2016. Recurring themes in her work are means of navigation, an object's narrative power and the subtle relation people have to nature. Often text based, with imagery and objects alongside, the works explore various ways of narration, through installations, publications, websites and videos.


Lito Kattou 'Tagmata ~~ Promo 2017' is a collection of one of a kind precious gemstones and crystals earrings.

Rocks collided, went through melting and solidification under the terrain’s cluster. Extruded, found and carved into small size sculptures the crystals are now worn by silent warriors. The small in size precious crystals are attached on the human bodies. Arranged in stillness and simultaneously set in alert, voiceless servants and inanimate stones-earrings charged with vibrations from the collisions and Gaiatic energy, are brought on the same plane.

Lito Kattou was born in Nicosia, Cyprus in 1990. She lives and works in London and Athens. She is a graduate from the MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art London and Athens School of Fine Arts. She develops constellations of sculptural works, produced in dialogue with writing. Articulated as weapons, skins, or cosmic elements, Kattou’s works engage with the sculptural potentiality of flatness, processes of embodiment and the transfigurations of material properties within the margins of space and time. She has participated in various exhibitions, projects and workshops. Selected recent shows include “And if I left off dreaming about you?” L.A.L.D , Foothold, Bari, “It looks like up to me” Eleni Koroneou Gallery, Athens, “Fighting with the Sun”, London (solo) “Solar Love for the Rapid Felines”, Pierre Poumet, Bordeaux (solo), “The Equilibrists”, New Museum, NY in collaboration with DESTE Foundation, Benaki Museum, Athens.

Puck Verkade 'Breeder'

As a response to Cosmos Carl, Puck contributes with a sneak peek into her new body of work 'Breeder', soon to be seen at her MFA degree show at Goldsmiths University of London.

Breeder, consisting of video episodes and a sculptural installation, explores how the process of reproduction is a sticky mess. How are sexual, social and visual reproduction entangled in the web of representation? How do these complexities inform gendered and racialized biases in everyday interpersonal encounters? How are they mediated and visualized in order to perpetuate social inequalities? How are we individually as well as collectively implicated in these modes of reproducing (mis)representation?

Puck Verkade (1987,The Netherlands) lives and works in London, UK. 'Frame or be framed' is a deep-rooted motif that runs through Puck Verkade's video based practice as an inquiry into the complexities of representation. Digging through generational layers of visual culture tropes has led Verkade to use humor and irony as an entry into the stickiness of subjectivity. It creates a continuous feed of embodied explorations that result into speculative constructions composed of re-appropriated found footage, sampled pop music, low res animations and personal recordings.

Bing Bin 'Theory of a Seducer Part 1'

I. My name is Jared and... I don’t really know how to present myself here. I’m not sure of the profile photos and how to fill out this bio page, except for basic facts such as #man #36 #white #straight #taurus #184 #fit #trader #nyc #nopets #nochildren #nosmoke #drinksocially The image of desire is proliferating in the algorithm, while the stream of imaginary seems to dry up in the iteration of unconcealed desire. Sex is no longer scarce after the liberation of its discourse — signs of sex can be produced from anything. Thus, the management of desire is the crux to reproduce the space for imaginary to bait matches. According to the theory of a seducer*, nothing is less certain today than sex*, whereas orgasm is always certain. You come to the climax and cum. The libidinal economy tells us clearly that nothing will move beyond the cyclical wave between erection and flaccid, rise and fall; a trading expert like me can always foresee the trend and knows when to come in and get out. Do I sound sexy?

II. …and this is his creator I made up this Jared, who's named after Jared Vennett in ‪The Big Short‬, a glib banker with an awkward haircut possibly injected a bit too much hyaluronic acid. Jared, the random tinder guy whose face is too random to even draw with a pen, wears facial makeup applied with a Photoshop eraser. It is the makeup of a world hit by post-scarcity economy. A world in which the law of high-resolution perfection is abolished soaks in millions of low-fidelity, low-resolution images showing off tasteless party or vacation scenes. Jared has received 10 likes on his page so far. He’s boring.

Bing Bin (b 1991, China) is an Amsterdam-based artist and writer (who eats spicy noodle every other day and owns a lot of pink thingy). Her decision-making, in an alchemical way, follows a flux where the Real permeates the emotion and the projection of reality. Her interests include poetry, speculative realism, accelerationism and fortunetelling. The work—mostly presented in video and elaborated by sound, text and objects—swings between the lyrical and sarcasm. She’s currently finishing her MA at Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam.

A Throw Of The Dice Will Never Abolish Chance was an exhibition at Banner Repeater in 2016, that took Stéphane Mallarmé’s text “Un coup de dès jamais n’abolira le hasard” as a site to consider new ways of thinking through the centuries old puzzle of code, numbers and language. Mallarmé’s famous typographic layout of words on the page hover for some as a precursor to the concrete poetry of performative code, that from a modernist perspective proved ideological in its refutation of ideology, as well as metaphysics. Mallarmé’s text also resonates through Barthes interpretation, and the advent of the reader, whilst a more recent study by the philosopher Quentin Meillassoux, draws out matters of contingency and chance, through an indeterminate code.

During the exhibition, two workshops were held: Thinking through the Block. They continued a focus on publishing as process developed over Banner Repeater’s programme for many years, where important precedents in publishing provide critical insights into present day protocols in network culture.

They were open workshops that anyone could attend, with invited speakers: Tom Clark, Paul Purgas, Alessandro Ludovico, Karen Di Franco, Ruth Catlow, Ben Vickers, Tom Pearson, Ami Clarke, and Malavika Rajnarayan, Prayas Abhinav and Satya Gummuluri of surfatial. holds audio recordings of the speakers, alongside other data captured during the exhibition period, momentarily, as parts of an ongoing puzzle.

The very first block of data in Bitcoin; the Genesis block, contained a “secret” message inscribed within it of The Times (UK) headline commenting on the fallibility of the current banking system: 'The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks'. A recent news headline reports on the UK Government trials of blockchain technology in the Welfare Payments system, partnering with Barclays Bank.

As such, there was an intention to think through these ideas, not in a vacuum, but to consider the full socio-economic, and political ramifications, of such a technology, which meant being mindful of the material, ideological, and inherent bias’ in many machine learning applications. Developing the critical enquiry of publishing as process a step further, Ramon Amaro gave a talk during the exhibition that touched on the politics of data and machine learning, that, by the very process of their design, are fallible to social consequences that are most frequently articulated in forms of biases, segregations and other social restrictions.

The workshops aimed to discuss the several, and possibly contradictory claims made, regarding the blockchain, producing a digital puzzle of the findings, inscribed, ascribed, and described through the block, leaving traces in the chain.

Ideas were considered that included the most immediate use of the block to attribute authorship and hence intellectual property and copyright, whilst asking further questions, a few of which are below:

• how might blockchain help develop alternative models of sharing both data and knowledge? • what contractual agreements might develop that could facilitate a customization of permissions relating to the use of personal data - that could act as micro-jurisdictions? • how might blockchain facilitate the development of new institutional models? • how might these function within an economy that has been described primarily as a gift • economy? • what can be learnt from precedents in archiving that share similar attributes to blockchain? • how might blockchain’s capacity to render all items ultimately searchable, shut-down previous modes of working? that include: sampling, copying and appropriation strategies.

She is also founder of Banner Repeater; a reading room with a public Archive of Artists’ Publishing and project space, opening up an experimental space for others, on a working train station platform at Hackney Downs station, London. Ideas that come of publishing, distribution, and dissemination, that lead to a critical analysis of post-digital art production, are shared in her practice as an artist and inform the working remit of Banner Repeater.

She has recently exhibited/curated works at the ICA, Wysing Arts Centre, Museo Del Chopo Mexico City, the Hayward Gallery, Ithuba Gallery Johannesburg, David Roberts Arts Foundation, Camden Arts Centre and The Container Japan. She continues to commission new artists/writers works through the Banner Repeater platform, and several publishing imprints: Banner Repeater paperbacks, Banner Repeater publishing, and the UN-PUBLISH series. She teaches across the UK with a focus on Publishing as Process: post-digital art production and publishing.

Robin Buckley & Faron Ray These are our favourite EDM drops; slowed down in the YouTube player to 0.5 original speed and ripped to create this video work for the online contemporary art platform Cosmos Carl. We are drawn towards this material for current aesthetic reasons whilst also being aware that we lack a direct relationship with the material, unlike our romanticised idea of the clubbers / consumers that feature in the videos. Slowing it down in this way allows us to enjoy the material indirectly, transferring it from a particular cultural space derided by the likes of ourselves and our peers to our own environment of high culture consumption and production; ascertaining credit in the process through this typical conceptual manoeuvre. Drops can be heard at the original speed by selecting x2 in the YouTube speed settings for this video. Tracklist in description.

Faron Ray (b.1993), based in London, has shown in various group shows including Athens Dry Deal and Yellow Mould London Deal, I Don’t Want To Curate Anymore I Just Want To Accumulate Content and curated the online show in 2016.

Robin Buckley (b. 1992) is a sound artist based in London. Their work explores the politics and aesthetics of club culture, technology and queerness. Robin has released music under the alias rkss across a variety of formats on labels such as Where to Now?, Alien Jams and Conditional Records. Robin also presents a radio program for Resonance Extra, called Lossless Communication, exploring sound discovery in the internet era.

Erik Martinson & Gailė Pranckūnaitė 'pontypool-txt- advntr-sim' unfolds as a simulation of a text-adventure computer game from the late 1970s/early 1980s.  The text is adapted from the novel/play Pontypool (1998/2015) by Tony Burgess, with elements from text-adventure Zork (1977/1980), and proto-chat bot Eliza (1966). In Pontypool, a sleepy small town radio host and his production crew helplessly report on a rapidly emerging epidemic. From the safety of their sound booth they broadcast eyewitness accounts, coming to realize their involvement in re- transmission is spreading the linguistically based virus, making word eating zombies (climbing into the mouths of others). When the infected words are understood, the broadcasters’ relative safety inside the station disappears. This adaptation draws on one eyewitness account from the narrative of Pontypool and places it within a ghostwritten user experience of a Zork style game.  As a text-adventure game, Zork has rules and parameters defined by text and user/player input. The world encountered is both made from and encountered through words. Zork has a list of ‘complaints’ for users who ask questions it can’t understand. This echoes the relentlessly incessant question-as- answer modus operandi of proto-chat bot Eliza. Eliza’s ‘effect’ is to foster a sense of listening and emotional response by engaging back with questions—often rephrasing and regurgitating user input—a mirror to talk to.

Gailė Pranckūnaitė Gailė Pranckūnaitė graduated from the graphic design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam in 2013. Practice focuses on printed matter and web-based projects, combining graphic design with an editorial touch, experimental typography and sounds. Since 2015 is part of a collaborative unit called Sprawl (with Mislav Žugaj), named after William Gibson’s term in the science fiction trilogy “Neuromancer”, “Count Zero” and “Mona Lisa Overdrive”. In it, it describes both a vast, spreading urban area and the expanding cyberspace. The term has come to perfectly encompass the shared interest in science fiction as a tool for enquiry, as well as the primary tool used for that enquiry; the internet. Sprawl seeks to translate the ongoing spread of cyber and urban sprawl into a visual, literary and social artistic methodology. Currently based in Vilnius. Online:,

Marija Bozinovska Jones 'C22H37NO2' is a chemical formula for Anandamide - a fatty acid neurotransmitter (Sanskrit word ananda means "joy, bliss, delight”). Its presence in the brain is correlated to anxiety and depression levels. Breathing is one of the few bodily functions which can be controlled both consciously and unconsciously. Breathing regulation and monitoring can influence mood, relieve stress and bring a state of inner peace and wellbeing.

C22H37NO2 explores biopolitics as displayed in online behaviour surrounding trends in 'self improvement’ movements. Consumer tendencies reach new heights: personal growth goals are set, fitness activities tracked, clean eating displayed and happiness levels quantified. Hereby self-published personal analytics and aspiring lifestyles seem to succumb to idealised aesthetics and assumptions, while female self-representation often blurs empowerment and sexualization.

Marija Bozinovska Jones lives and works on her laptop and her yoga mat. She is enrolled in MA Computational Arts at Goldsmiths and is a resident at Somerset House Studios in London. MBJ has staged participatory experiences at Grimmuseum (Berlin), Green Ray/ Enclave (London) and FEED (Berlin). Festival performances and presentations include CTM, Transmediale and MIRA/ Scope Sessions. Solo exhibitions: Fischer und Fischer (Berlin), MKC (Skopje), KNIPSU (Bergen) and group shows at Rockelmann& (Berlin) and Arcadia Missa, St. James Church and ASC in London. Dividing her practice with MBJ Wetware as hybrid identity, her music collaborators include: JG Biberkopf, Iydes, MIND:BODY: FITNESS and A Guy Called Gerald among others.

Do you reach for your device as soon as you wake up in the morning? Does some alone-time surfing the web, seem like your ideal date night? Do you look to your browser to make both quotidian and crucial life decisions, from cooking and cleaning, to child-rearing and financial planning? Do you constantly check-in with your social media, especially when you’re in need of a little comfort? Do you freak when your wifi is m.i.a., especially when you need it most?

By typing your passcode or surrendering your fingerprint, you are entering a mutually beneficial but contractual agreement with your device, your apps, and internet, and the online universe. In agreeing to the terms and conditions of usership and service that tie into content-production, you can in turn, find an obscure recipe and make a gourmet meal from pantry scraps, search xtube for the newest daddy porn uploads, or just Netflix and chill. Similar to a life-partner, the internet consumes your time and energy, and expects commitment. Acting as an emotional, mental, and at times physically-taxing investment (think migraines from too much screen time!), the internet can also be a great supporter, a source for self-enrichment, and a companion. Your device never judges you for taking too long to clean those crumbs off your chest, for having that Ben & Jerry’s pint for dinner, for spending the day in your underwear, or for attempting to break your daily masturbation record.

Relationships today are both radically shaped and subtly nuanced, affected and in uenced by the digital landscape. Technology has transformed what defines your S.O., from how you connect and meet IRL, to how you present your shared media identity, and even, how your break-up is mediated online. Each relationship milestone is highlighted and archived by push notifications and status updates. Sifting through these memories — either stored in a shoebox marked ‘my-ex’, or hidden in your download folder — may be neutral, painful, or bring back memories of the ‘good ol’ times’. The act of saving and sorting the digital detritus of a past relationship is rooted in a desire to finalize, categorize, and consume not only wifi, but also love and the objects of desire.

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, (FΛG) has invited artists to self-curate and ‘show-off’ their collection of internet keepsakes, those items which they couldn’t help but keep in their shoe-box ‘junk’ folder. These digital ‘cabinets of curiosities’ will act as vessels of commemoration, honouring the palpable romance and undeniable partnership between artist, device and internet. These relationship mementos must be downloaded, saved and archived for later days of nostalgia and reminiscence, giving them an infinite online life with a relationship that is ‘so over’.

(FΛG) would like to thank Turner-prize winning artist Mark Leckey for inspiring this digital commission. “I Do?” for Cosmos Carl took inspiration from The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things (2013), now on view at PS1 MoMA, New York. While Leckey’s cabinets have been physically realized, (FΛG)’s digital commission will exist solely digitally via (FΛG)’s website/ facebook and Cosmos Carl’s website/ facebook.

Lea Collet & Marios Stamatis 'Ghost Intimacies part 1: a net romance'


Chorus (together):

This is c0mm0d1ty and this is n0rmat!v!ty, both are single and looking for their other half, and they have been looking for that special connection.

Online dating, bars, single's events, blind dates, the list goes on and on. The result is always the same: dead-end roads. They both yearn for a loving relationship with someone who accepts them for who they are, something meaningful and long-term. Even though c0mm0d1ty and n0rmat!v!ty leave 5 minutes from each other and are a perfect match, they haven't met yet...

You see, c0mm0d1ty and n0rmat!v!ty decided to try They both decided to give a try because it works for others; they've also heard that it was very different from traditional online dating. They are right, with the creation of more than 1 million happy marriages, and likely an equal number of living long-term relationships and an unbelievably low divorce rate of 3.86% and countless testimonials of those whose life has been changed, clearly has mastered matching based upon broadbased compatibility. believes that everyone is entitled to loving, successful, long-term relationships; would you like to be their next success story?


Ghost Intimacies part 1: a net romance is a multi-character play in which each scene is presented as an online dating profile on Using dialogues adapted from dating shows and slogans from dating apps, the play unfolds through the swiping movement of the user who has to go through other public profiles in order to discover all the scenes and acts.

Questioning how emotional and economic discourses mutually shape each other, Ghost Intimacies part 1: a net romance explores the dating word's adherence to normative standards, requiring the 'authentic' self to go through a vast process of reflexive self-observation introspection, self-labelling and articulation of tastes and opinions in order to meet a virtual other.

Lea Collet & Marios Stamatis are a duo of love. Their collaboration evolves through a range of media such as video, performance, text, and sculpture. They like to use theatre as a method in which they stage the implications of publicly performed affect and embodiment within an emotional capitalism framework.

Recent work includes We are having a great time :) at Rockelmann & (Berlin, DE); Key Performance Interludes at Green Ray (London, UK); USE/USER/USED at Zabludowicz Collection (London, UK); I Think I'm Experiencing Pure Bliss at Entreprise Project (Athens, GR), 2016; Faith Dollars, Taxfree Imagination & Uptown Bliss and Chorus for Three at Assembly Point (London, UK); Ambiguity Symposium at The Showroom (London, UK), 2015; BYOB Geneva, Bâtiment d’Art Contemporain (Geneva, Switzerland), 2014. &

Chooc Ly Tan 'Colonized X Heard Em Say' by Chooc Ly Tan is a mashup of two musical tracks, using tracks by noise techno producer Paula Temple (‘Colonized’) and MC vocalist Leikeli47 (‘Heard Em Say’ ).

Prior to the recording, the tracks were mixed and tested live, while Tan was Djing at parties and club nights recently. She saw the effect on people was a chemical reaction, so she decided to record it in her laboratory, and forge astral connections with her recent video work.

Also, for your aural pleasure, she is also launching a brand new mix. ‘Crepuscular Dreams of (Dis-)Alienation’, is a homage to people in exile, the refugee community and to non terrestrial beings, who are welcome to Earth.

Chooc Ly Tan is an Artist, DJ & Voyager, in residence on Planet Earth.

Her practice sets out to use systems or tools that are used to understand the world, such as logic or physics, but subvert them to suggest new visions of reality.

Recently her work has been shown at Minsheng Art Museum, Beijing, China; StudioRCA, London; Artič, Prague; Gasworks, London; ART Rotterdam; Neutral Ground Contemporary Art Forum, Canada; CCA, Glasgow; OK Centre for Contemporary Art, Austria; Festival of Ideas, Cambridge; CCCB, Barcelona; Fuso International Video Art Festival, Lisbon; BIOS, Athens; Timishort Film Festival, Romania; Milano Film Festival; School Hut, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania; Circa Projects, Newcastle; Carlos/Ishikawa, London; Transmission Gallery, Glasgow; Whitechapel gallery; Flat Time House.

Last year, Chooc Ly Tan has performed a DJ set in the new Tate Modern building (London), and at Apocalypse/Rave (Oslo, Norway).

Tan has been invited to be artist-in-residence for 2017, as part of the Both Sides Now residency program, Hong Kong, and at Fondation Boghossian – Villa Empain, in Brussels.

Jackson Bateman (b.1989, Oxford)

Jack Fisher 'WEAREONE.COMPUTER' is a script of data; an application - {an idea of language}, an abstraction of time… an accumulation of content, an autonomous archive, an independent structure. The sequence of data accesses a cluster of files to constantly increase. (numbers transcend their original purpose.) They become a collective, changing and adapting. One the distant future...reaching its programmable finite end… the system crashes... the governor can govern no more “But it won’t happen in our lifetime” - The machine we thought was here to keep us AWAKE, becomes the thing that now sends us to sleep.

The work WEAREONE.COMPUTER is now open and accessible for download via cosmos carl. Users may download and own a copy of the work on their own machine. If you so wish; i encourage you to explore the files within the work and any assets may be replaced in order for the user to create their own version of the work. For more info, please see the README file enclosed within.

Jack Fisher (b.1991) is a maker of things and images. They’re not always sure if it's art but enjoys doing it. They will never stop. They’re confused by written language and how we use it. Their mind is a cesspit of ideas. They believe in the Sun.

Abri de Swardt Leak' is a project pre-releasing segments from 'Ridder Thirst LP', a double record by De Swardt and a host of contributors to be launched in 2017. Through textual, sonic and musical arrangements, the work responds to campus and the state of tertiary education with disassociation and extra-curricular desire, particularly at a time of the ends of Rainbowism, shut downs, state capture, and calls to mass redress and zero compromise. It is localised from the vantage point of Stellenbosch University, South Africa, where De Swardt completed two degrees and taught Visual Studies.

What about language? Do all eleven official languages have the words needed to cover the Commission? A Zulu-speaking colleague loses his temper: ‘Of course! And if the words aren’t there, we’ll make them up.’ Make them up? He provides a list:

hit squad: abasocongi – neck-twisters massacre: isibhicongo – crushed down serial killer: umbulali onequngu – addicted killer politics: ezombusazwe – matters about the ruling of the land right-winger: untamo-lukhuni – stiff-necked third force: ingal’enoboya – a hairy arm ambush: lalela unyendale – lying down waiting to do an evil act

‘Hairy arm?’ I ask.

‘During third force activities,’ he explains, ‘people said a cuff sometimes moved too high up, and the exposed arm was always hairy – that means belonging to a white man.’
Is it possible to forget and be quite sure at the same time? It should be stated that there are no life universals. I gave up English Studies III as an extra subject, so amongst others I still have copies of 'Wide Sargasso Sea' and 'Portrait of a Lady' even though I haven’t read them yet. I guess being a student isn’t a temporal designation. Not in the same way that checking in at Standing Rock is. A photograph does the rounds of a brick flung during the Fees Must Fall protests into some shatterproof window of Truth Coffee in Cape Town, bisecting the glass above Zapper, EatOut and TripAdvisor stickers. One does not simply mark oneself as safe during a revolution. At any moment there are 20 million people ordering flat whites in America. On Easter Island the Moai monoliths have bodies beneath their heads, covered up from half a millennia of erosion. This makes me think of moments of enacted near burial, head above ground: Hans Strydom captive and doe-eyed in 'The Gods Must Be Crazy II', Brendon Daniels in Nicola Hanekom’s play 'Babel', his head mostly encased beneath a bucket shadowed above the red soil, and 'Untitled (face in dirt)' by David Wojnarowicz, lips flaring at the nearness of death – to be able to resuscitate such a face! Growing up I used to be dismayed about a certain twee sentiment presiding over a display about a His Master’s Voice gramophone in the regional museum. Now I do wonder about the image of the family pet peering into the horn, if the recording wettens the dog’s nose. Could the scent of his master’s breath be transmitted synaesthetically? Perhaps nothing is playing, and his head nuzzled in the conical hollow reverberates the nectar of his own bark. What if turntable needles where to be substituted by sharpened nails, then stumped fingers, raw bone, finger by finger, hand by hand, wrist to wrist, and vinyl groves were to turn bloodied arteries at the service of a sounding. On an Afrikaans poetry blog someone writes in reference to a recent burning of whether you would die to save a piano. But would a piano die for you?
Quote from Antjie Krog, 'Country of my Skull', 1998, Random House Publishers.

Abri de Swardt (b. 1988, based in Johannesburg and London) is an artist and writer working across video, photography, costume, sculptural tableau, readings and performance through what he calls 'an aesthetics of drowning' and 'the sunstroke of voice'. He holds a MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, University of London, as a Skye Foundation Scholar. By delving into the politics of touch, containment and depletion, De Swardt uses modes of dirty historicisation to renarrativise buried, effervescent and pink-washed matter into impossible and fantastic scenarios, as alive again, epidermal and amorous.

De Swardt has held solo exhibitions at White Cubicle, London; MOT International Projects, London; and blank projects, Cape Town. Recent exhibitions include 'Daata Editions', Frieze London; 'Off to Mahagonny', various sites in Rye Lane, London; 'Blend the Acclaim of your Chant with the Timbrels', Jerwood Staging Series, Jerwood Space, London (all 2016); 'Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015', One Thoresby Street, Nottingham, and Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; 'Sightings', KZNSA, Durban; 'Poetics of Relation', LiveInYourHead, Geneva; 'Men Gather, in Speech…', Cooper Gallery, Duncan Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee (all 2015) and 'Field Work', IV Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, Moscow (2014). He was selected as one of Wanted magazine’s inaugural Young African Artists in 2011, and included in Arcadia Missa’s publication 'How to Sleep Faster 5' in 2014.

Rustan Söderling 'Hidden Depths' is a computer animated video work with an accompanying collection of downloadable 3D props hosted on

At the moment of doubt, worlds open up, and each fresh report from those strange worlds leads to further doubt. This has been the century of the invention of the personal and collective unconscious, of anthropology, palaeontology, of science fiction and scientific cosmological speculation: the creation of thousands of other worlds, terrestrial and extra-terrestrial, apparent to the eye of a traveller or beyond the reach of the telescope, buried in the earth, hidden within an unsuspecting mind. ( . . . ) in the century of uncertainty, of mass man and the bombardment of images, one can see the world in a grain of sand only if one simultaneously sees the thousands of undressed oiled bodies baking on the beach, the web of their social interactions, the raw sewage pumped into the sea and the contaminated lives of the marine animals, the kiosks with their pink bunnies and rubber ducks, the thumping transistors and careening Frisbees, the bumper-to-bumper traffic snaking along the coast. A macrocosm without the microcosm. — Eliot Weinberger, The Spider and the Caterpillar (1985)

In William S. Burroughs novel The Wild Boys (1972) feral boys roam what is left of a devastated earthly landscape, murdering, raping and pillaging. Leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. For Burroughs this was probably the ultimate erotic fantasy, youth running amok, destroying the past and creating an uncertain future as they go along, the goddess Kali on a hover-board. The cover of my pocket copy features the airbrush-painted ass of one of the Wild Boys covered in rainbow speedos with trickles of blood going down his thighs. However, as with Naked Lunch I didn’t enjoy the book at all, no matter how much I wanted to, it was more a chore than a pleasure to get through. But somehow the image of the Wild Boys is an exciting, if terrifying one; A sub-human torrent of self-indulgence, the id running amok, or to quote the earlier Weinberger text “raw sewage pumped into the sea”. What would wash up on shore after the wreck? What artifacts would be left next to the bodies of their victims? Imagine the morning after, would there be an inspector Morse or Barnaby arriving at the crime scene? A CSI forensic team in blue overalls and rubber gloves, marking the evidence with tiny yellow tents, mapping out the unconscious of the mindless. Surveying each millimeter of this strange new world of pink bunnies, Frisbees, instant noodles, plastic cutlery, rubber sandals, empty cigarette packages, doubt and uncertainty. A scene from dystopian krimi where everyone's a suspect.

Balthazar Berling 'Signe' is a list of sounds from Periscope's users.

The list will change over the summer with the intention of using the collected material for the writing of a theater play. At present, the selection considers the following directions:

• Together, practise whispering and speaking in a low voice: this arouses attention and a kind of collective expectation. When we whisper, our gazes can cross again.

• Speak in a befuddling way: seek conversation situations in which the uses of language can be knocked together and mingled.

• Set words and bodies in a situation of negotiation. Encourage their reciprocal influences to act full throttle. Words should be able to carry bodily experiences and vice versa. It is not about rejecting language. Try to mingle words into bodies and bodies into words.

• Approach any deficit of embodiment or absence of physical presence as beneficial crises, as potential occasions to explore and learn.

• Observe the hollows: What is happening when we think nothing is happening? What are the continuities between the waves, between the intense moments? Try to put yourself in the position of these hollow passages.

• Faced with differences, exercise astonishment.

Balthazar Berling (b. 1985, Paris) is Currently based in Stockholm.

Berling’s working process is performance-based and happens in dialogue with others. His practice focuses on the body, its faculty of speech and its gestures. Since 2013 his research deals with the contemporary transformations of male subjectivities. His process is influenced by a growing understanding of feminist theories and practices. & + 2015

Perce Jerrom 'The Facebook Fake Profile Archive' acts as repository documenting fake Facebook profiles. The public group allows members to upload these fake accounts when they discover them, before they are eventually removed by the social media site.

Many of these profiles are created automatically utilising software to build potentially thousands of fake social media accounts, the software can randomly select images for the profiles along with other personal details, such as where they work and live. These accounts exist for a number of reasons, sometimes they are purchased by companies and individuals to act as fans for a page or they can also be created for spreading spam or data mining real accounts.

Fake Facebook profiles generally share similar characteristics to one another. Examples being that their profile pages are relatively empty aside from their birthdate and their profile picture. Other attributes are that they rarely display a cover picture, they usually have very little or no posts and they often have few friends. Finding a friend request from someone who you do not personally know or share any friends with, coupled with the previously mentioned attributes will in most likelihood mean that the profile is fake.

Perce Jerrom was born in the UK graduated from his BA at Oxford Brookes University in 2009, he also graduated from an unaccredited MA at School Of The Damned in 2015.

He has recently exhibited and organised shows at Bikini Wax (Mexico) Yautepec (Mexico) Turf Projects (Croydon) STCFTHOTS (Leeds) Welcome Screen (London) Bosse & Baum (London) Rogue Project Space (Manchester) and Platform 1 (London). In 2015 he completed a residency at Casa Maauad in Mexico City, he also attended a residency at ESARQ (Escuela Superior de Arquitectura) in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2013.

Perce Jerrom’s practise currently draws from modern technologies, user-generated websites, search engines and their algorithms. He often uses existing online ephemera to discuss wider social and cultural issues; such as technology’s effect on language, the perpetual re-contextualizing of medias, the presentation of the self, and the democratization of information. He attempts to integrate elements from both high and popular culture, combining the humour and baseness of low culture but also often referencing contexts and theories devised by various Art movements throughout history.

Perce currently lives and works in London.

Aapo Nikkanen 'Images:Images (2016-2021)' is an archive of the Google image search results returned by the search term ‘images’. Each entry of the archive will contain the two first pages returned by Google image search with its standard setting, as well as the first page returned with image size = large setting. Entries to the archive will be recorded each month for five years and stored in the Internet Archive.

In the five-year term the project aims to track the evolution of the online popular visual culture through the trends found in the image searches. At the same time, each entry to the archive is a snapshot of the present collective subconscious and shows us what we - together with Google’s crawling algorithms - consider to be a beautiful image.

Although these images can be dismissed as kitsch or tacky, their mesmerising quality is hard to resist. They certainly are attracting, reassuring us that there is hope for tomorrow and that life still has some magic left in it. In 1000 years, when one of our descendants stumbles upon the archive and understands that this is how we wanted to be remembered, I have succeeded.

TL;DR for the next five years I will be googling the word "images" in the Google image search and saving the archive for all eternity.

Aapo Nikkanen (b.1982, Finland) is an artist based in Paris, France. His current interests include online-based group intelligence, the development of AI theories in the new millennium and the notion of memory and the right to forget in the digital age. His longterm projects often include a significant research or collecting phase, which is counterbalanced with a more immediate practise, compromising of ephemeral works, installations and abstract digital prints.

Snorri Ásmundsson 'Jólasveit og Jóladís' is a new christmas album and, acording to the artist, the second best christmas album ever made.


Released on December 12, 2015

All songs by Snorri Ásmundsson Produced by Árni Grétar Photo Jónatan Grétarsson Design by Ámundi

Snorri Ásmundsson (b. 1966) is an artist who seeks to affect society through public events. He has intentionally disturbed the Icelandic community for some time with his extensive and remarkable performances in which he works with social taboos of politics, sex and religion. He has observed the reactions of society when commonly accepted values are turned upside down—for example, when a powerless individual takes into his own hands authority that normally is given to others by different predetermined rules. Howsoever people react to these grandstand performances, Snorri critically challenges social and religious values and seeks sharp responses, thus examining the limits of his fellow man and of himself. & &


Anne de Vries ‘Submission’, an online extension of the work shown at Cell Project Space in London, Dec 2015.

Submission is an attempt to give form and purpose to our hyper connected world and reveals it as information driven reality where digital technologies are embedded in everyday life and feed a human desire to surpass the limitations of body and mind, where boundaries of accessibility and freedom can also question the realm of personal privacy and control. It deals with varying notions of ‘the individual’ inside mass collectivity of ‘pluralist culture’ bringing into question an evolving ideology of design and architecture in the public sphere.

The exhibition follows Anne de Vries’ current solo exhibition at Cell Project Space 'Submission' (2015), ‘E-Merge’ at Foam Museum Amsterdam (2015), and ‘Deep Screen’ at Parc Saint Léger,France (2015).

Selected group exhibitions include ‘Still/ Life’ at Three Shadows Museum, Beijing (2014), and ‘It aint whatcha write, it’s the way atcha write it’ at Manifesta Foundation, Amsterdam (2014) ‘Super cial Hygiene’ at De Hallen (2014), ‘The Dark Cube’ at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012), ‘Brands – Concept/Affect/Modularity’ at Salts Basel (2014) and ‘The Moving Museum’ in Istanbul (2014).

Salvatore Arancio Starting from his own experience of being hypnotised, 'MIND AND BODY BODY AND MIND' sees Arancio humorously attempting an unlikely group hypnotherapy session, focused on a script extrapolated from a Youtube video, that aimed to hypnotise the unaware sitter to became a better artist.

Arancio proceeded to replace the video’ s initial images with its own psychedelic mash up of found and made footage, layered with flashing lights emulating similar alpha waves to the Dream Machine created by Brion Gysing and Ian Sommerville in 1959, as well as binaural beats and an actor’ s voice reciting the exact original text.

Both existing as a performance and a video, Arancio’ s immersive and hypnotic piece aims to questions ideas of perception, authorship and reproduction as well as the text somehow ordered description of what an artist is meant to be.

Commissioned by Whitechapel Gallery.

Salvatore Arancio uses a range of media including sculpture, photo etchings, collage, animation and video to produce works that look to science and nature as sources of inspiration. Fascinated by founding myths and legends, Arancio manipulates images to create new juxtapositions that are both beautifully evocative and deeply disquieting. Born in Catania, Italy, Arancio lives and works in London. He received his MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art.

Selected solo and group exhibitions include: Project 09 Salvatore Arancio, Contemporary Art Society, London (2015); The London Open 2015, Whitechapel Gallery, (2015); Fashioned to a Device Behind a Tree, Camden Arts Centre, London (2015); Une Taxonomie des Sens et des Formes, Centre d’art contemporain La Halle des bouchers, Vienne, France (May 2015); Cinéphémère, FIAC, Paris (2014); The Hidden, Ensapc Ygrec, Paris, France (2014); Cathedral, AV Festival, Northern Gallery For Contemporary Art, Sunderland, UK (2014); Curiosity: Art & the Pleasure of Knowing, Hayward Touring, UK (2013-2014); Cyclorama, Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, Mexico (2013); Alternating Layers of Contrasting Resistance, Rowing, London, UK, (2013); The Little Man of the Forest With the Big Hat, Federica Schiavo Gallery, Rome, Italy (2013); An Arrangement of the Materials Ejected, Spacex, Exeter, UK (2011); To See an Object to See a Light, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Guarene d’Alba, Italy (2011); Forthcoming shows include a solo presentation at Kunsthalle Winterthur, Switzerland in 2016.

Andrea Williamson 'Green Idol'.

Fan art is like a prayer to a deity of beauty or intrigue. The meditation upon a face of intrigue slows the drawer down line by line, stroke by stroke, until the faced mandala is perfected. However as prayers need to be repeated again and again, the face of a celebrity may be painted in series, coming across as obsessive compulsion. It is also just a prayer to a modern deity and an act of love.

This populist love can be put to use for the overall health of the planet:

"In 2006 when Knut, the polar bear cub born into captivity in a Berlin zoo, splashed across the front page of Vanity Fair alongside DiCaprio, the once-universal symbol for the world’s most popular soft drink was reframed to reinforce a different message. In this new image, the cuddly polar bear of Coca Cola’s “Northern Lights” commercials from the 1990s underwent a radical facelift. DiCaprio strikes a serious pose, engaging the viewer eye to eye from atop a Jökulsálón glacier in Iceland as Knut looks up at him with curiosity." (From Hijacking Sustainability by Adrian Parr)

Dear fans of Cosmos Carl, Leo and Knut are back with a most humble message of hope.

Andrea Williamson (Calgary, Canada) is pursuing a MFA at Goldsmiths University. She has written for numerous Canadian publications including esse, c magazine and Blackflash. Recent exhibitions include The Immortal Maker at Pith gallery, Calgary, #magichour at Area 51, London, and We at the Old Hairdresser’s, Glasgow.

Carl Gent 'Questions for Meliza' is a week-long conversation I will be conducting privately with Meliza.

In February 2009 Google Earth was updated to version 5.0. Part of this update included a Mars-globe built from maps at a much higher resolution than those already available via the browser-based Google Mars. Google Earth’s Mars also has a population of one; a conversational bot called Meliza.

Debora Delmar Corp. 'KUWTK'.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians (often abbreviated to KUWTK) is an American reality television series that has aired onE! since October 14, 2007. The show is currently in its tenth season and focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian-Jenner family. Its premise originated with Ryan Seacrest, who also serves as an executive producer.

The series mainly focuses on sisters Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian. It additionally places emphasis on their parentsKris and Caitlyn Jenner (then known as Bruce), their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and brother Rob Kardashian, as well as Kourtney's ex-boyfriend Scott Disick. The significant others of the Kardashian sisters have also been featured on the show, including Khloé's ex-husband Lamar Odom. In season eight, Caitlyn's son Brody, who has made cameo appearances in the early seasons, joined the show to appear regularly, along with his brother Brandon, and Brandon's wife, Leah. Kim's best friend Jonathan Cheban and Khloé's best friend Malika Haqq have also been a part of the show.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians has received poor reviews from critics since its premiere. It has often been criticized for emphasizing the "famous for being famous" concept and for appearing to fabricate aspects of its storylines. However, the show has brought in very high ratings for the network and its success has led to the creation of numerous spin-offs, includingKourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloé & Lamar, and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, as well as the forthcoming Dash Dolls. It has additionally distributed all seasons to DVD.

Nicholas Brooks The end is a location (outside or just beyond the penultimate location).

It is just a little bit further than the place where you would stop having ended.

The end is unrequited finishing – It lingers about outside of action.

It is a lost place where things probably end up having done all they were supposed to do.

Networks totally have an end. Even distributed ones.

Cultural artefacts stirred with the fates of abandoned airports | Subtitles as a necessary accommodation | For half a day I hiked around the abandoned runways and scrubby wastelands, everything was surrounded by wire fences and weeds had taken over wherever they could | Ghostly halls | smashed windows | broken doors | barking dogs | all expecting mountain top investments | A stalker in a car following me, maybe he is not a stalker, maybe he is just doing a u-turn | Small drones ascending and blocking the sky | the ally cemetery | luggage storage under capital controls | the market sentiment.

Marguerite Humeau HOW MAJESTY ENDS is a “flat” and expanded video produced by artist Marguerite Humeau and designer Le Studio Humain for Cosmos Carl to be explored by means of searching scrolling. This tale of non-linear time and narration conflates the supernatural and post-human and unfolds around the mystery of an elephant ceremony: a mass graveyard elephants go to to die, lured by a seemingly supernatural force.

HOW MAJESTY ENDS demarcates the prologue, or initiation, of a larger project by Humeau - narrating the walk of an individual to the mysterious place.

A quest for the unknown as truth, a challenge to human primacy.

Marguerite Humeau (b. 1986, France) studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and at the Royal College of Art, London, where she obtained her MA in Design Interactions in 2011. Her work was recently shown in a solo exhibition at Import Projects, Berlin and has been included in group exhibitions at TBA21 Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (Vienna), the Serpentine Gallery (London), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Victoria & Albert Museum (London) and the Hayward Gallery (London). Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and of the Fonds de Dotation famille Moulin (Lafayette Collection), Paris. She lives and works in London.

Geirthrudur Finnbogadottir Hjorvar 'VESLA'

The production of VESLA is supported by Mondriaan Fonds.

Icelandic artist Geirthrudur F. Hjorvar is attempting to re-institute symbolic meaning as a trend for a contemporary context. To this end, geometry turns out to be useful as a way to create allegories about the nature of perception; or as an explanation about how reality and its representation collaborate to form self-regulating feed-back loops.

Past works have been presented in Kunstverein Amsterdam (2015), Momart (2014), Stadhausgalerie Münster/Kunsthalle Münster (2013), W139 (2013), After the Butcher (2012), Kunstverein Milano (2012), Hafnaborg (2010), The Living Art Museum (2012), Motto Berlin (2012), Lettergieterij Amsterdam (2012), Hinerconti (2012), Kunstverein Ingolstadt (2011), SouthSouthWest (2010), Overgaden (2007), The Reykjavik Art Museum (2007), Bus Gallery (2006), etc.

Yuri Pattison '1014' re-purposed archive deconstructing the history of a persona as our common history and reality.

When Edward Snowden leaked the extensive materials on NSA phone and internet surveillance, he was sitting in a Mira Design Hotel in Hong Kong, the images of which are now well known and infamous. The video 1014 ( Irish media artist Yuri Pattison later produced of this very hotel room, now appears like documentation of the scene of a spy thriller and emptied stage.

Between 2000 and 2002, Snowden was editor, webmaster and designer of Ryuhana Press, a small US based start-up and community website that had sold anime art. Archived under, Pattison obtained the then expired rights of the website and has turned it into an archive of raw footage of a scene, that seems to be representing not just the Persona Snowden but the NSA and its operations as such.

Drawing an arch between Snowden's past and the present, raw elements of the work 1014 are hosted, to be discovered, and likewise unfold a web of links to discover Snowden’s past. Pattison explores the malleability of the architecture of the internet as a tool to link these events and thus malleability of the digital historical record and our perception of history through the filter of the internet.

Jack Brindley ‘CHAPTER 1’ is an online torrent of image and text material produced by the artist and available to download.

Torrent Files are computer files that spread in a peer-to-peer file sharing network across the internet. Torrent files hosted on servers are marked with trackers and allow for downloads to start from distributors (known as seeders) and requesting clients (known as leechers), thus multiplying themselves throughout the net.

CHAPTER 1 … I’ve started to think about what this means. The merging from me to you; transferring, receiving, a sort of bleeding from one source to another, perhaps as a way to give context to something perhaps as a thing in itself. A kind of container, a temporary architecture, a storage space for connective tissues. Maybe it’s a broadcast, a pirate radio station trying to be on point on the right frequency, on the correct bandwidth. … When we sit in this same room together and talk about weekend craft markets, DIY zine distro’s, pavilions, and biennales that have good wheelchair access, and how our interests span from sign language to gang signs, what we are really talking about is architecture. Structures for distribution, fleeting edifices, we construct the ephemeral. We want things to emerge so that they can disappear again, we want things to move and keep moving. Maybe we’ve had our best conversations at bus stops, orbiting around ideas, repeating ourselves, stuttering, changing what we are saying, always waiting, always due. A love affair with the elliptical, talking about the ellipsis. Coming back again and again, but never quite on the same path. No buildings were meant to last forever.

Leslie Kulesh 'Another tab open on your desktop.' From Friday February 20th to Friday March 6th, Kulesh will maintain a comment-able Google Doc covering the events of AW15 fashion month (Feb 12 to Mar 11, 2015) as seen through the prism of Sylvanian Families; a line of collectible anthropomorphic animal figurines made of flocked plastic. This continues Kulesh's research into the acceleration of culture producing a byproduct of infantilism; also known as 'the kawaii-ization of everything.'

Leslie Kulesh (b.1982 Lake Forest, IL USA) produces performance and sculpture across multiple platforms, seeking to reveal the role of technology as a material labour that intersects with human-being as well as land-being, becoming a symptom of contemporary culture production. Her most recent project T.A.G. Temporary Autonomous Girl is a capsule collection of garments that protect the wearer from electromagnetic frequencies. Presenting the collection allows for experiments in performing networked capitalism, while the pieces themselves function as editioned artworks.

Share This 'Share This' is a research project by Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Het Nieuwe Instituut, The Netherland Institute for Sound and Vision and Upload Cinema. Their aim is to explore ways of collecting and presenting artists, designers and image creators currently active on social media.

His video works are distributed by LUX and he is represented by Rodeo.

Luca Francesconi 'Fieldwork' is a selected YouTube playlist concerned with the ideas of ecology and cultivation of (cyber)space.

"The limit is the empirical part of the space, and I realized how to establish borders, which is the beginning of the activity in each cultivation, is a way to manage large spaces into smaller spaces. Manage spaces, but also “to organize” spaces, and finally “curate” spaces... Cultivation is only an activity, human life, nothing about the order and the art. Before agriculture there is rhythm, and before the rhythm there are space and the limit."

Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson 'Calling you from Cosmos Carl'

Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson (b.1984) is a storyteller, a performer, a dancer, an object maker, an illustrator. He has a love for the absurd, by which is meant less an obsessive passion for the ridiculous, nonsensical or the odd, than a tender and caring attitude: he takes care of the absurd, he helps it to develop, he gives it a place alongside everything else where it can be your most disturbing neighbour and your best friend. More often than not Styrmir uses the written language as a genesis of his work. Written pieces are then adapted into live performances that activate obects, things and gestures. The performances and their narrative, that often are delivered as monologues, serve as an exhibition device for autonomous art objects. Styrmir lives in Amsterdam & Warsaw.


Cosmos Carl - Platform Parasite is an online platform that hosts nothing but links provided by artists, writers, thinkers and curators. Be it encrypted, inside an archive, available through open source software, live-streamed, downloadable, in a webshop, on the dark web, or on streetview, the CC work, although on public display, is directly accessible through the hyperlinks displayed on the website.

CC encourages artists to reclaim (commercial) online platforms to produce and display their art. This means that the work is displayed on a website that is neither designed nor hosted by the artist.

The fact that the work is made on an existing online platform implies that visitors may stumble upon it, not necessarily viewing it as art.
