Klasse Digitale Grafik,
502 Bad Gateway — Digitales Ausstellen
From June 18–22, 2018, the Klasse Digitale Grafik from the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg occupies K,. Working at the intersection of graphic design and digital culture, this group will transform the physical and online interfaces of K, into forums for experimenting with aspects of digital exhibition making.
During this period, a set of interdisciplinary projects serve as starting points for considering multiple questions: What tensions emerge in physical exhibition spaces between artworks in and about the internet? Which forms of digital representation, collection, and organization manifest themselves in contemporary display strategies? How can individual practitioners make digital infrastructures visible, and with which current economic and social factors must artists, exhibition makers, and institutions contend?
Every day, a different guest will be invited to discuss these and other questions. The conversations are open to the public. Simultaneously, the website www.k-komma.de will reflect and extend the workshop’s activities as a virtual display.
