reSource 002: Out of Place, Out of Time is the second event of the reSource transmedial culture berlin, the new year-round initiative of transmediale festival, a project of networking based on the inter-connection of genres & practices, curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli and developed in cooperation with the reSource partners (CTM/Disk, Kunstraum Kreuzberg /Bethanien and the Post-Media Lab/Leuphana University of Lüneburg).
reSource 002: Out of Place, Out of Time presents open discussions, panels, workshops and performances, shedding light on the practices of artists, activists and hackers rethinking critical interventions in the field of art and technology. The three-day event gives both attention to analogue processes of networking (networks out of time) and the idea of shifting of cultural paradigms via network technologies (networks out of place).
reSource 002: Out of Place, Out of Time aims to reflect on modalities of artistic production in the framework of digital culture and network economy, while generating a collective insight into the themes of the upcoming transmediale and CTM festivals. BWPWAP – Back When Pluto Was a Planet is the thematic framework of transmediale 2013 (29.01.-03.02.), which explores the simultaneous displacement and invention that takes place in cultural processes mediated by technology. Alongside, The Golden Age, the theme of the next CTM festival (28.01.-03.02.), draws attention to the increasing abundance of material in the digital era, just waiting to be sourced and reprocessed by generating pastiche, paradox, fusion and morphing. Inspired by these themes, and following the conceptual thread initiated by the previous reSource initiatives, reSource 002: Out of Place, Out of Time reflects on the issues of re-contextualisation, recombination, montage, displacement, reinvention of socio-cultural paradigms, appropriation, and transformation of an eclectic range of resources through network practices. Such topics are addressed to artistic and activist communities within (and beyond) digital cultural production, with the aim to develop a distributed network of activities in the city of Berlin, as a platform for sharing and visibility for the local and translocal communities working in the field of networking hacktivism and politics.
