Burg Hülshoff – Center for Literature (CfL)


On the third weekend of the Peer to Peer – A Month of Media Art series at the Burg Hülshoff – Center for Literature, the focus is on projects that deal with new narrative styles mediated through technology and enable extraordinary experiences and encounters for visitors. The bandwidth of contemporary technologies used is varied. Methods like sensor technology, augmented reality, sampling or motion capturing can be experienced in workshops, installations and walks.

The programme, composed of several of the sponsored projects, is complemented by performances and readings in which the societal and individual impacts of technology play a vital role today and in possible futures.

Program

Fri, 15.09.


3.30 pm – 5.30 pm

Technology and Narrative

Type: Workshop

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: German


Together we will explore how we can tell stories with the help of technical means. How can an existing technical set-up be embedded into a story and in turn strengthen this? Building on the technical basis the collective STERNA | PAU developed together with the media art fellow Lisa Passing for the performance Ghostlike, we will look at various interaction concepts and consider how we can deploy them in different scenarios.

Registration at: info@medienwerk-nrw.de


6.00 pm

Welcome and opening of Parcours

Type: Parcours

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: German

With Jennie Bohn (Burg Hülshoff – Center for Literature), Fabian Saavedra-Lara and Klaas Werner (Office medienwerk.nrw).

The course on the third P2P weekend presents four very different media art projects. They all share a cooperative approach and make use of contemporary technologies with their versatile potential for narrative styles. They are adapted to their new environment in the park of Burg Hülshoff. Also participating:

parkARt
Kollektiv 42
Follow the paths of the park in spirit. What do you see there besides bushes, trees and meadows of flowers? – Nothing! What the practised stroller likes to suppress will be clearly evident to the practised urban person: the absence of advertising evokes a strange feeling of visual emptiness. What remains is the charmless wasteland of nature and the feeling of inner peace. Whereas only a few advertising surfaces could really make a difference! 

Audience Participation Lab 
STERNA | PAU + Lisa Passing
How can we bring back the new forms of co-creation and interactivity that were conceived of and tried out during the pandemic in digital performance and theatre spaces to physical spaces? The Audience Participation Lab is dedicated to answering this question and explores artistic possibilities for incorporating the audience actively or passively, directly or indirectly, as individuals or collectively into dramaturgies by digital means. 

You better don't know
RUHRGEBIETERINNEN x MIREVI
The artistic mixed reality production You better don't know is a live staging that invites to play and experiment and creates a fascinating, surreal encounter with extraterrestrial life. It consists of a music-borne dance performance with a simultaneous interactive representation of virtual, utopian 3D worlds. The project questions the relationship of environment, human being and the sense for reality. It functions as a speculative platform for paranormal and extraterrestrial experiences. 

City Stories
fringe ensemble
CITY STORIES is based on the idea that the history of a city feeds from the personal stories of its residents. Their narratives provide a fresh look at the urban environment in which we reside every day. With an app, one can call up the stories of residents that took place at a particular location in the city. However, we find out what happens when these stories are placed in an unfamiliar environment in this course.



8.00 pm

How To Give Your Best Self Some Rest

Type: Performance

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: German


Constantly under pressure to deliver the best performance? The artist Sebastian Schmieg shows how artificial intelligence can offer a way out – but differently than one might think. This is because vacuum cleaners and delivery robots as well as AI assistants do in fact make many mistakes. That we nonetheless believe in their future and forgive them is because they are successful strategic underperformers.

Artist Sebastian Schmieg demonstrates to the audience how this strategy can be learned and used in a highly relaxed way.


8.30 pm

Berit Glanz

Type: Videorading + Hybrid Talk

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: German


Following the performance of Sebastian Schmieg, the author, essayist and literary scholar Berit Glanz will have the floor. In various video clips, she will read from her novel Automaton and the essay Filter, among other works. It’s all about clickworking and content cleaning, the joy of filtering and the risks of infinitely editable (self-)images.

Followed by
Following this, Berit Glanz will join us from Iceland to exchange ideas with Sebastian Schmieg about current developments of digital culture. 

Towards 11:00 pm, joined return with the charter bus to Münster central station.

 

Sat, 16.09.


2.00 pm – 4.00 pm

Inter_Act:

Interactive Bünne Images Workshop

Type: Workshop + Lecture

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: English German


Kollektiv 42
invites us to breathe digital life into locations of art. In 120 minutes we will develop interactive stage designs or installations in project groups. To this purpose, we use the flow-based, visual programming environment TouchDesigner, which offers many interfaces for creative applications. Participants will be equipped with microphones, webcams and beamers, which they will use to develop a system for interaction between human being and machine.
Participants will be provided with the appropriate technology. They can also feel free to use their own laptops. These should have an up to date, free TouchDesigner version installed. 


Followed by Sharing-Spaces: Interactivity in New Media
Fehime Seven
Endtime 4:45 pm

What transformative power does interaction offer for the creation of alternative societal forms of exchange? How does it advance engagement and participation in the performance and in the public sphere? What role do recent technologies play in increasing participation and the engagements of users in the new media? Game designer, author and computer scientist Fehime Seven will present application examples from her portfolio, concentrating on how various technologies can produce transformative interactions. From 360° and depth cameras to mocap suits and VR headsets, various possibilities will be introduced in the presentation.

Parcours

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: German

fringe ensemble, Kollektiv 42, STERNA | PAU + Lisa Passing, RUHRGEBIETERINNEN x MIREVI and DROSTE DIGITAL

The course today presents five projects. They all share a cooperative approach and make use of media art with its versatile potential. They are adapted to their new environment in the tranquil park of Burg Hülshoff.

DROSTE DIGITAL manuscripts – rooms – installations
Droste Museum at Burg Hülshoff
An exhibition makes the digitalised manuscripts of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff accessible for the first time. Experience the cosmos of her microscopically small manuscripts at Burg Hülshoff, the birthplace of the poet. In order to bring them into the present, authors and artist collectives were invited to occupy themselves with the text images and design individual rooms.


8.00 pm

Again As

Andreas Bülhoff and Marc Matter

Type: Performance

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: German


For Again As, Andreas Bülhoff and Marc Matter allow words from online texts to enter into an artificial dialogue. They collected single-syllable words from the website of the New York Times and the infamous message board 4chan, which could be viewed as two extremes of online opinion-forming and debate culture.

With this word material, they composed pieces that can be found on the record release ɅV (a phonetic transcription of the words "of" and "off"). In their performance, they mix the material on four record players and in this way attempt to create both an abstract exchange of the voices and a sound-poetic deformation of the material through DJ technologies.


8.30 pm

The Shredded Hologram Rose

(or how broken media can resolve new insights)

Type: Lecture Performance

Location: Burg Hülshoff

Language: English


The performative lecture of the curator and media artist Rosa Menkman looks at the torn side of a hologram to find information about its origin, structure and metadata – information that the undamaged hologram would never surrender. Menkman looks into a future consisting of holograms, machine learning and images with super-resolutions to reveal what they continue to conceal.

The Shredded Hologram Rose is inspired by Fragments of a Hologram Rose, a science fiction short story by William Gibson from 1977.


9.15 pm – 10.30 pm

Ausklang mit YAYA

Type: DJ-Set

Location: Burg Hülshoff

YAYA is not a who
YAYA is not a what
YAYA is a need, for you and me. 

YAYA is a crew, a platform that offers space and a voice for club and pop culture. YAYA is a space of solidarity with a focus on BIPOC femmes. YAYA are musical companions of the P2P Month of Media Art in September. We will listen to the sounds of this interesting formation at all four locations. 

Line-Up
Dj Gaara

Followed by: Shuttle bus at 10:45 and 11:15 p.m. From the bus stop Burg Hülshoff to Münster central station

11.00 am – 6.30 pm

opera – a future game

Type: Installation

Location: Burg Hülshoff


Over one weekend, the Burg Hülshoff – Center for Literature will show the interactive installation opera – a future game by the dramatist Thomas Köck and the composer Ole Hübner. Direction, game design and animation by Michael von zur Mühlen. In the project, the artists will sound out new forms of representation in the genre of music theatre. At the same time, the intention is to test out innovative interactions with the audience – from viewing through participation, from collective experience to isolation as a politically volatile theme of our present. And everything in a dystopian-futuristic setting and on the basis of a narrative style that helps itself from the current popular film and gaming culture.
