In this workshop and the associated Lab for Analysis of Social Networks we critically and artistically look at the history and development of cyberculture and formation processes. The implicitness in dealing with social media services happens mostly on a very unreflected level. Goal of the seminar is to generate studies and projects connected to the topic of sensitizing users. Media artists, humanities scholars and computer scientists work together on theoretical and practical projects.
On three workshops in the whole we will go into the question of how our society is being changed by technical developments. The Lab for Analysis of Social Networks offers opportunities to bring the resulting insights into art.
In cooperation with the Institute for History at the KIT (IfG) we offer the seminar “Formation of Social Rooms” with focus on the historical development of todays infrastructures that meets every second week.
The workshop is open to anybody and focuses on transdiciplinary work between theoreticians and practitioners.
