Launching the NFT-Label

digital culture and the creative production that goes with it is constantly changing. the digital3mpire was always a place to examine this change, to reflect on it and to present the results of it. and so it is only logical that we face the new developments here and deal affirmatively with the phenomenon of NFTs. only in this way can we recognize and understand the possibilities and potentials and, in the best possible case, use them for ourselves.

we have minted a first collection on opense and will publish further works together with other artists in the coming period.

Current productions and further information about the label can be found here.

Achim Mohné on the wrong router at NRW Forum

thewrong.org is the worlds most net art biennale of the world. it consists of a planet scale digital swarm of webpages, shows and various exhibition formats contextualizing digital issues in a serious and playful way.‘
the wrong routers where part of the netart biennale 2019.

In 2019, with the kind support of Alain Bieber, a WRONG ROUTER made it into the NRW Forum and was installed there in the entrance area. The sound work “You are listening to the digital data packet of an analog photograph of the first analog cassette recorder from 1963 in the form of a digital sound recording while the sending of the image in an email on 4 May by a Wi-Fi router in under one second.”(47.12 min)“ by Achim Mohné was presented on the router.
The project was curated and organized in cooperation with Darktaxa collective, in this case largely driven by Michael Reisch and Florian Kuhlmann. I will not write any further about the presented work itself, because Michael Reisch had already done a detailed interview with Achim Mohné in advance of the exhibition. You can read the transcript of this conversation here on the darktaxa website.

HOWTO denken ++++ Dekonstruktion und Rekonstruktion anhand von Algorithmen. +++ Material als Container menschlicher Vorstellungen und Projektionen +++ Auch immer gut ist die Versicherung der Identität durch Feindbilder. +++ Außerdem: Realität entsteht in unserer Vorstellung. Klar. +++ Aber wir stellen sie selber her und beeinflussen mit dieser Fiktion wieder die Realitäten anderer. +++ Dazu merken: Die Feedbackmagie des Surrealen existiert generell nur im Denken des Anderen. +++ Unausgeschöpfte Möglichkeiten sind eben auch Zusammenhänge die noch nicht hergestellt worden sind. +++ Jetzt ist alles im Interimszustand zum Nächsten, und(!) wartet auf seine Optimierung. +++ Imaginierte Zukunft. Was soll das sein in einer permanenten globalen Jetztzeit? +++ Systeme (wie Photoshop/3d/Internet), die die Grundlage neuer Medien sind, werden präzise untersucht und offenbaren dann wie sich unsere Welt und ihre Betrachtung durch die zunehmende Prozessierung von Informationen und Bildern verändert. Ja? +++ Alles ist konstruiert. Indem man aber bereits existierende Dinge verändert, wird das zugrundeliegende Konstrukt sichtbar. Manchmal. +++ Hinauf zur Hyperrealität. Los geht’s! +++ Entmenschlichung ist immer ein Thema. Leider. +++ Denn Eingriffe durch Algorithmen sind in der Metamoderne die Basis der Mystifizierung des vermeintlich Realen. +++ Selbstkreation vs. Spekulation +++ Die rhythmische Neuerschaffung des Es. +++ Ephemer entsteht … , wirklich ist dann wohl das, was nicht veränderbar ist. +++ So lange bis alles nur noch Platzhalter und Container für alles sein kann. +++ x +++ Es folgt die totale Verunsicherung im changierenden Realen.

A BYOB to celebrate the opening of the Digital3mpire

On friday, 26.09.2014 we will do a BYOB (BRING YOUR OWN BEAMER) to celebrate the opening of the #digital3mpire – a new space for digital aesthetics and network issues in Düsseldorf. The artists participating in this event bring their own projectors and show their video works. The BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) concept has been developed by Rafaël Rozendaal 2010. The first edition of BYOB was initiated by Anne de Vries & Rafael Rozendaal in Berlin, and has since then been organized in many different cities around the world.

This show will start around 8pm (20.00 cet). Participants should come a bit earlier for doing the setup.
Please send us a short message if you would like to be part of the show. This makes organizing and planing easier for us.

Guests are of course welcome all evening … :-) !
