Post-digital research, Transmediale, Berlin

Feb. 1st, 2014: I’m invited to present my work at Transmediale, Berlin.

Post-digital research, Afterglow, Transmediale, Berlin: the event asks how to formulate research questions, research methods, and research dissemination under post-digital conditions. How does the post-digital become a research topic? How are research practices affected by the post-digital? How is research organised, visualised, and put into processes of management? And, how do we respond to this?

Following an experiment of performing research under such conditions, presented in the Peer-reviewed Newspaper Post-Digital Research, launched at transmediale, the participants will focus on systems of valorisation within research and the control mechanisms through which it is measured.

With an introduction by Christian Ulrik Andersen (Associate Professor at Aarhus University), artist Christophe Bruno will launch his new project Psycho-academic Dérive, an academic mapping of highly organized academic networks and citation patterns. Invited respondents will help to generate discussion around post-digital conditions of research, and understandings of how knowledge disseminates, and of possible ways to critically engage with this.
