Relating to transmediale's 2024 festival theme, the annual Research Workshop in collaboration between Aarhus University, London South Bank University, and transmediale festival (Berlin) is now hosting an open call for workshop participants for its next edition content/form – in particular, individuals who are interested in exploring our relation to content and the forms through which it is made public. The workshop is specifically targeted toward PhD and early career researchers, but also welcomes submissions from researchers from inside or outside the academy, including artists, designers, and curators. It will result in a presentation (launch or collaborative newspaper publication) at Haus der Kulturen der Welt as a part of transmediale 2024 you're doing amazing sweetie.Read more about Call for Participation: Research Workshop 2024, "content/form"
This publication brings together researchers who address the problems of technological scale, thinking through the potentials of 'the minor'; or what we are referring to as minor (or minority) tech – small tech that operates at human scale (more peer to peer than server-client) and stutters in its expression and application. As Marloes de Valk puts it in the Damaged Earth Catalog: “Small technology, smallnet and smolnet are associated with communities using alternative network infrastructures, delinking from the commercial Internet.” As such, the publication sets out to question the universal ideals of technology and its problems of scale, extending it to follow the three main characteristics identified in Deleuze and Guattari's essay (Toward a Minor Literature), namely deterritorialization, political immediacy, and collective value.
