Projective Cultures: The case of the Quantified Self and Health 2.0
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Btihaj Ajana (September 2015)
Recently, the use of algorithms, data and metric technologies has invaded many spheres of production, knowledge and expertise. From marketing and advertising to healthcare and bioinformatics, various fields are currently exploring the possible benefits and challenges pertaining to the collection and usage of large data sets for different purposes and contexts. In my contribution I will consider some of the examples whereby data and their analytics are being deployed for the purpose of predicting certain activities and pre-empting future events. In doing so, I will discuss some of the ethical issues pertaining to such data-driven practices, focusing on issues of categorization and profiling, the projective and predictive nature of data science and its approach to the future, and the implications vis-à-vis understandings and practices of identity. Following these, I invoke the philosophy of Jean-Luc Nancy by way of offering alternative signposts for reconceiving the future beyond technocracy and prediction.
All-go-rithmic, No-go-rithmic – Problems of Predictive Policing
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Reinhard Kreissl (September 2015)
The idea of using historical data about crime and other social processes to improve resource allocation of police forces has been one of the hot topics in policing discourse over the last years. While system providers present their success stories, pointing to decreasing crime rates in areas where their tools were implemented by local police forces, the evidence is not convincing. Problems of predictive policing will be discussed from a technical and data perspective and from a theoretical and conceptual perspective to demonstrate the limits and un-intended side effects of this new approach to doing police work.

NO FUTURE - Dividual Lines Against the Appropriation of our Present becoming by Algorithmic Futures
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Gerald Raunig (September 2015)
“Those who fell prey to the future, seek advice from the soothsayers” , wrote a leftist intellectual in 1940, and one could add today: advice from brokers, economists, and analysts. Not just the colonization of our future by today’s soothsayers, but a brutal future of algorithms colonizing our past and our present. And as the algorithms traverse individuals with their dividual lines, we have to invent dividual lines, too, and bundle them into molecular revolution.
Acephalous Algorithms: Alternative Forms of Life in Video Games
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Paolo Ruffino (September 2015)
The gaming industry has recently started using algorithms for the generation of 3D game environments. The game “No Man’s Sky”, not yet released, attracted attention since its first announcement in 2014 because of its procedurally generated online environment. I will draw on the work of Roger Caillois, who has looked at the ways in which we make sense of the relation between nature and ourselves. His ‘diagonal’ approach to the rationalization of nature and life, which brought him to work within the Surrealist movement in the late ’30s in France, could provide an alternative perspective on the practice of using algorithms for the reproduction of living environments.

Omnipresence, Invisibility and Classification: The Power and Politics of Making Data Intelligible
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Francesca Musiani (September 2015)
The issue of information classification and organization has perhaps never been as relevant as in our current times of “information overload” and internet-mediated access to the vast majority of the information surrounding us. The algorithms embedded in the information and communication technologies we use daily are (also) artefacts of governance, arrangements of power and “politics by other means”(Latour). Examples drawing from the field of Internet services and from recent attempts at “regulation by algorithms” (e.g. the French loi sur le renseignement) will serve as empirical points of entry into a discussion of the power and politics inherent in “making data intelligible” in the era of information pervasiveness, in terms of both institutions’ regulation of algorithms, and algorithms’ regulation of our society.

Rationality, Reason, and Formal Rules: Reflections from the Cold War
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Thomas Sturm (September 2015)
What can it mean to be rational, especially in a world that seemed to be on the brink of thermonuclear destruction? During the Cold War, this fundamental question engaged the sharpest minds. Which theories of rationality could be invoked to explain human behavior, especially in the domains of international relations, war, and military strategy? And could one develop theories also for the resolution of political problems, thus providing clear normative guidance? Could the rules be given an axiomatic structure and applied to various domains of science and society in a strictly determinate fashion? Today’s fragmentation in the study of rationality undermines the Cold War hope for a unified concept of rationality. This also reveals how more traditional notions of “reason”, understood as mindful deliberation over when and how to apply a rule, have returned to the scene.
Software will take Over the World - Debate

Q&A with Peter Purgathofer and Felix Stalder
Software will take Over the World
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Peter Purgathofer (September 2015)
Software, and the algorithms it encapsulates, turns out to be the ultimate meta-technology. It can be argued that everything will be software, even beyond simple algorithmic thinking. The emergent, post-algorithmic behavior of software is already so complex that it cannot be explained any more by simple logic. Without any caution, researchers develop software that probably will one day take over the world. This presentation will discuss several cases and applications to illustrate what software can do today.
Data Subjects
Algorithmic Regimes and Generative Strategies
Olga Goriunova (September 2015)
This talk will explore the return or birth of the subject in the context of the computational, which produces something that can be addressed as a digital subject. I propose to focus on some of the processes through which digital subjects are constructed out of data by patterning and modelling, put in relation to each other, acted upon and become enactive themselves. I plan in particular to focus on Facebook’s look-alike model to explore some of the emerging machines of indexicality.

Critical Art in Digital Networks? Panel
Information as Reality
Marko Peljhan | Mediengruppe Bitnik | Marion Hamm (03.09.2014)
Since the 1960s, important positions and movements in art were understood as “political” and “critical” towards art institutions and social power relations. This also includes many artists who work with advanced technologies. Meanwhile the art system has differentiated further. Today political content does not stand in the way of a successful career; quite on the contrary, it is ever more often part of a strategic positioning in the market. How did that happen, and what can critique mean in art practice today? How they must start in order not to be subject to the pervasive logic of utilization of difference?

Kulturpolitik als Gesellschaftspolitik - Panel
Information as Reality
Leonhard Dobusch | Ilja Braun | Andrea Hummer (03.09.2014)
Rund um Grundeinkommen, Urheberrecht und Recht auf Remix ist in den letzten Jahren eine breite Diskussion entstanden, die kulturpolitische Fragen in einem breiten gesellschaftspolitischen Kontext verorten. Verhandelt werden nicht Geschäftsmodelle, sondern die Grundsätze einer offenen Informationsordnung.

Ilja Braun und Leonhard Dobusch im Gespräch mit Andrea Hummer.
Remix und die Demokratie der Kultur
Information as Reality
Leonhard Dobusch (03.09.2014)
Im Zuge der Digitalisierung sind Remixkultur und mit ihr verschiedene Formen kreativer Kopie Teil des kommunikativen Alltags breiter Bevölkerungsschichten geworden. Mashups und Memes werfen dabei nicht nur Fragen der angemessenen rechtlichen Beurteilung von Remixpraktiken auf, sondern unterlaufen auch herrschende Mythen über genial (Allein-)AutorInnenschaft und den abgeschlossenen Charakter kreativer Werke. Eine Legalisierung von Remixpraktiken, wie sie der Digitale Gesellschaft e.V. in seiner Initiative für ein "Recht auf Remix " fordert, ist deshalb nicht nur eine grundlegende Voraussetzung für die Kunst- und Meinungsfreiheit einer Gesellschaft im digitalen Zeitalter, sondern birgt darüberhinaus Potentiale für eine Demokratisierung kultureller Praktiken.
Geistiges Eigentum und freies Wissen- Grundeinkommen statt Urheberrecht?
Information as Reality
Ilja Braun (03.09.2014)
Geistiges Eigentum und freies Wissen - zwischen diesen beiden Polen hat sich die Debatte um das Urheberrecht im Digitalzeitalter eingependelt. Dabei geht es längst um viel mehr: Kreativität gilt als der wesentliche Produktivfaktor in einer zunehmend auf immaterielle Wertschöpfung ausgerichteten Ökonomie. Immer mehr Menschen arbeiten heute so, wie früher nur Künstler gearbeitet haben. Und immer weniger können von ihrer Arbeit leben. Kann ein
bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen die Antwort auf die Krise des Urheberrechts im Digitalzeitalter sein? Vielleicht sogar der postfordistischen Selbstausbeutung überhaupt?
DIY, Digital Biedermeier or New Cultural Paradigm
Information as Reality
Alessandro Ludovico | Aileen Derieg (03.09.2014)
Aileen Derieg talks with Alessandro Ludovico and Jaromil on cultural practices and DIY.
In recent years, the DIY culture received increased attention. Inspired by cheaper new production machines (eg 3D Printer) and freely available knowledge online things which were made ​​recently only in industrial plants and by specialists have moved into the realm of ​​”doing it yourself”. This development is accompanied by a typical rhetoric of radical change (eg 3rd industrial revolution) and empowerment. But then the practical results are every so often reminiscent of a digital Biedermeier, quaintly produced small series of more or less useful design. What does this contradiction mean? Where is guerilla engineering and civil social appropriation of know-how turning into a self-referential zone of handicraft?
Process VS. Product, resisting the self-gratifying loop, regaining a DIY perspective
Information as Reality
Alessandro Ludovico (03.09.2014)
DIY has taken on another meaning after the re-appropriation of public communication accomplished by underground cultural movements since the seventies. This process was enhanced by the so-called "bedroom generation" during the nineties, opening its bedroom walls to the digitally connected world. Twenty years later the same and the subsequent generations are trapped in an endless self-referential narrative, and the virtual disappearance of the walls has been replaced by the borders of the screen to which they’re constantly referring. The previous ability to question and enable cultural and social "processes", has been obfuscated by the easiness and almost instantaneousness of producing virtual and physical "products". Confronting a few correlated media strategies on both sides is then necessary in order to fight the looped gratification and find again a perspective.
Media Culture between Creative Industries and White Cube
Information as Reality
Steve Kurtz | Konrad Becker (September 2014)
Steve Kurtz from Critical Art Ensemble on videoconference with Ushi Reiter (servus.at) and Konrad Becker:
As North America and much of Europe bring younger people ever closer to nothing (as in “nothing to lose”), a split is occurring. On the one hand, in which the uneasy marriage of art and politics gets consumed by creative industries and white cubes (or just cubicles) are being realized in parts of the population. On the other hand, another demographic is also emerging that is rapidly approaching nothing through unemployment, debt, and alienation. They are being hardened through this process, and thus becoming all the more willing, if not forced, to confront neoliberalism. When positive expectations collide with a negative reality, radicality can assert itself once more.

...is a semantically connected content repository, which contains documents on 15 years of new practices in art and media.

Based on an extensive archive going back to 1994 the site collects materials that serve as important reference documents in the field of new media, politics, and art and makes them accessible to a wider public. Instead of a hierarchically structured archive an experimental navigation interface opens up new ways to explore large information nodes. Documents are associated by a range of tag that allow to filter relevance according to topics and issue relations. ASCR, short for Advanced Semantic Content Repository, is the open source information architecture and "editing back end" of Future Non Stop.
