Friedrich Kittlers Habilitationsverfahren Spucken hilft nicht, Herr Kollege!

Friedrich Kittlers Habilitationsverfahren Spucken hilft nicht, Herr Kollege! | Inter-Facing the Archive | Scoop.it

Friedrich Kittlers Buch „Aufschreibesysteme“ gilt heute als Klassiker der Medientheorie. 1982 aber wurde seine Wissenschaftlichkeit bezweifelt. Jetzt liegen die Habilitationsakten im „Fall Kittler“ offen.

...

Das hätte Friedrich Kittler gefallen. Der im Oktober gestorbene Kulturtheoretiker war in seinen jungen Jahren ein Universitätsereignis, weil er die Geisteswissenschaften zum Studium von Technik, Medien und Akten anhalten wollte. In der „Zeitschrift für Medienwissenschaft“ publiziert der Lüneburger Medienhistoriker Claus Pias jetzt Auszüge aus der legendären Habilitationsakte Kittlers. Und zwar alle Gutachten, die damals, 1982 und 1983, zu Kittlers Arbeit „Aufschreibesysteme 1800/1900“ verfasst worden sind, sowie ein von Kittler damals eigens für das Verfahren geschriebenes, unpubliziert gebliebenes Vorwort dazu.

....

Ein Gerücht wurde dieses lange Verfahren aufgrund der hohen Zahl an Gutachten. Elf Stück waren offenbar nötig, um einzuschätzen, ob dieser Autor auf die studierende Menschheit losgelassen werden könne. Von den drei Hauptgutachtern bejahten das zwei, einer riet ab. Doch auch manche bejahende Stellungnahme hatte Beiklänge, etwa wenn der einstige Doktorvater Kittlers, der Germanist Gerhard Kaiser, im August 1982 die Habilitation „nicht nur aus Sinn für Humor“ befürwortete. Nicht nur: So süß kann Wohlwollen sein.

We need a data democracy, not a data dictatorship

We need a data democracy, not a data dictatorship | Inter-Facing the Archive | Scoop.it
A data democracy built to last needs tools that empower everyone to work with data rather than relying on apps and data scientists. Tableau helped ignite the data revolution, and its IPO could help it keep going.

Pierre Levy's curator insight, April 8, 2013 12:34 PM

The democratization of data is a real phenomenon, but building a sustainable data democracy means truly giving power to the people. The alternative is just a shift of power from traditional data analysts within IT departments to a new generation of data scientists and app developers. And this seems a lot more like a dictatorship than a democracy — a benevolent dictatorship, but a dictatorship nonetheless

luiy's curator insight, April 8, 2013 1:23 PM
The democratic revolution is underway

The good news is that there’s a whole new breed of startups trying to empower the data citizenry, whatever their role. Companies such as 0xdata, Precog andBigML are trying to make data science more accessible to everyday business users. There are next-generation business intelligence startups such as SiSense,Platfora and ClearStory rethinking how business analytics are done in an area of HTML5 and big data. And then there are companies such as Statwing, Infogramand Datahero (which will be in beta mode soon, by the way) trying to bring data analysis to the unwashed non-data-savvy masses.

 

Combined with a growing number of publicly available data sets and data marketplaces, and more ways of collecting every possible kind of data —  personal fitness, web analytics, energy consumption, you name it — these self-service tools can provide an invaluable service. In January, I highlighted how a number of them can work by using my own dietary and activity data, as well as publicly available gun-ownership data and even web-page text. But as I explained then, they’re still not always easy for laypeople to use, much less perfect.

Monika Fleischmann's insight:

In an essay for the catalog of Collect the WWWorld: The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age, an exhibition installed most recently at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn, Josephine Bosma announces that the wilderness is back. Though modernity provided the means for humans to sequester themselves safely in comfortable houses, sheltered from nature’s seasons and its bad moods, Bosma points out that the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors, between the private and the public, have been broken down by digital technologies. As data slips into our most intimate spaces, the way rain and wind once ripped through primitive shelters like caves and huts, we return to “a rather basic form of humanity”―an uncanny “21st century version of ancient cultures and traditions.” Sorting through an “erratic, uneven mess” of information, human beings are once again hunters and gatherers.

Energy-Passages – Words in a flow

Energie_Passagen, a media art installation in public space by Monika Fleischmann &Wolfgang Strauss, reproduces the linguistic space of the city in form of a data flow. Hundreds of catchwords taken from current newspaper reports appear in a projected »information flow« and are spoken by artificial computer voices. As soon as passers-by select individual words, thematically related networks of terms start to perform in this flow, which can also be experienced as an audiovisual echo. The text is thus detached from its linear context and staged as a medial reading in urban space. During 4 weeks all actions and the choices of newspaper – what was reported? – and people – what was of interest? – were measured. Most often people choose terms like Preis (cost), Eltern (parents), Opfer (victim), Liebe (love), Essen (food), Mädchen (girl) while the newspaper was reporting mostly about Prozent (percent), Jahre (years), Deutschland (Germany), Millionen (millions), Menschen (people), München (Munic). On the geografical map one could see who in the world is of interest and in contact with the city. Another result was that the newspaper focussed on economy and politics and reported not much about culture and even less about education. Also the influence of economy on politics and vice versa can be detected from the storaged statistical data. Online simulation and archive of Energie-Passagen.de/Webinstallation

EXHIBITION EXTENDED

Inter-Facing the Archive. The Media Art Portal netzspannung.org

Jun 23 – Febr 24, 2013. ZKM Media Lounge, Karlsruhe 

 

The exhibition “Inter-Facing the Archive” is Monika Fleischmann’s and Wolfgang Strauss’s artistic and scientific contribution to the Digital Archive. Using the example of the media-art platform netzspannung.org, “Knowledge Discovery Tools” are presented which develop the Digital Media Art Archive by way of semantic knowledge maps and audio-visual data-streams.

 

“Netzspannung.org and its groundbreaking interfaces create cognitive and data structures. What has been created here is a model for an international educational infrastructure that deserves imitation.” (Peter Weibel)

 

In most cases, that which has been concealed in digital archives is represented in lists and other index-card-like digital archives. As much as this form may be expedient for scientists, it has far less inspiring effects through the Internet, and on exhibition visitors.

 

Netzspannung.org has been online since 2001, and offers multiple accesses to valuable sources of knowledge. One interface here comprises the rubric “Tele-Lectures” by scientists and artists. Up to 150.000 international visitors access over 200 hours of Tele-Lectures and experimental study and teaching modules per month. Over 2.500 descriptions of works, texts, pictures and videos drawn from art design, music and computer science are available in the area “Archives”, and the e-Teaching platform. With current affairs, the rubric “Media Art Research” shows, among others, the extent to which artistic work is a research activity.

„Ein Modell für die internationale Bildungslandschaft.“

So bezeichnet Peter Weibel die Plattform netzspannung.org, die, seit 2001 online, seit 2007 am ZKM gehostet wird. In der Ausstellung „Inter-Facing The Archive“ setzen sich Monika Fleischmann und Wolfgang Strauss mit dem digitalen Archiv auseinander, indem sie ein neues Verfahren zur Daten-Akquise entwickelt haben und das Archiv selbst szenografisch für den Ausstellungsraum inszenieren.

 

Netzspannung.org bietet vielfältige Zugänge zu Wissensressourcen, die inzwischen von rund 150.000 Besuchern weltweit monatlich genutzt werden. Fleischmann & Strauss, die die Plattform am Fraunhofer-Institut entwickelt haben, verwandelten mit dem „Medienfluss-Browser“ das passive Archiv in einen interaktiven Informationsfluss. Diese „Semantic Map“ wurde vom Nobelpreisträger Theodor W. Hänsch als eine der 100 wegweisenden Ideen bezeichnet, die unser Leben verändern werden.

Simpósio Internacional/International Symposium in Sao Paulo

 

Possible Futures proposes a debate on emergent themes in the field of preservation of artistic and cultural heritage, by gathering a net of international experts in conservation of digital art and in collections digitilization.

 

The growing of artistic production in digital and electronic media has urged the elaboration of specific procedures, which are different from the models of accession and cataloging systems of the existing museum collections.

Rediscovering the Electronic Music Godmothers

Rediscovering the Electronic Music Godmothers | Inter-Facing the Archive | Scoop.it
A surge in the reissues of classical music composed by women for the computer has brought attention to artists either dead or no longer involved in avant-garde music.
Monika Fleischmann's insight:

“I WAS lucky in that when I was 8 or 9 and might have gotten music lessons or a doll, my father gave me a soldering iron instead,” the composer Laurie Spiegel wrote in the extensive liner notes included in“The Expanding Universe,” a new anthology of the electronic works she created at Bell Laboratories from 1973 to 1977. A generous, overdue sampling of a body of work as groundbreaking as it is listenable, the album is the newest arrival in a recent wave of CDs and LPs meant to rescue from oblivion the work of pioneering female electronic composers.

Zettelkästen: Alles und noch viel mehr: Die gelehrte Registratur

Zettelkästen: Alles und noch viel mehr: Die gelehrte Registratur | Inter-Facing the Archive | Scoop.it

Eine Ausstellung im Deutschen Literaturarchiv Marbach zeigt uns jetzt die Instrumente: literarische und gelehrte Zettelkästen samt ihren historischen Vor- und Nebenformen.

Monika Fleischmann's insight:

"Doch ganz gleich, ob der Zettelkasten auf ein Buch, ein Werk oder auf eine Gedankenwolke mit wechselnder Niederschlagsneigung hinauslief - er ist stets mehr als das Ganze, dessen Teile er gesammelt hat. Denn es stecken stets noch andere Texte in ihm als diejenigen, die aus ihm hervorgegangen sind. Insofern wäre die Digitalisierung des einen oder anderen Zettelkastens ein Geschenk an die Wissenschaft. Schließlich gibt es nichts an ihnen, was mittels eines Computers nicht besser genutzt werden könnte. Daran kann keine Beschwörung des „handwerklichen“ Charakters der gelehrten Arbeit mit Zettel und Schere etwas ändern. Die Wissenschaftsgeschichte sei kein Museum zum Zeitvertreib, hat Gaston Bachelard einmal geschrieben. Sie gehört, will man Luhmanns Analogie aufnehmen, demjenigen, der die Erkenntnis aktiv liebt."

Great question! I thought of the term as I was reading the above article this morning and did a quick Google search and did not find any relevant uses of the word. Although, I am thinking the term Creatorium might work better and sound better. The basic meaning behind the word is similar to the terms imaginarium or exploratorium. With a twist instead of only inspiring imagination and exploration let enable creation of ideas, tools, and products digital and physical. The library could become a community hub or nexus for innovators, educators, and inventors taking data,information, and knowledge then using tools provided by the library to create or turn their ideas into books, videos, and now with 3D printers create models and working products.

Moving beyond textual analysis, its careful, theoretically rigorous engagement with the relic—the physicality of the archive—promises to change the direction of the digital humanities.”

Exhibition | Ryerson Image Centre: Archival Dialogues – until Dec 16, 2012

Archival Dialogues: Reading the Black Star Collection
September 29 – December 16, 2012
Main Gallery, Student Gallery, Media Wall

......................................................................................................................................................................................

Archival Dialogues: Reading the Black Star Collection focuses on the Black Star Collection as seen through the eyes of internationally-renowned Canadian contemporary artists Stephen Andrews, Christina Battle, Marie-Hélène Cousineau, Stan Douglas, Vera Frenkel, Vid Ingelevics, David Rokeby and Michael Snow.

Each artist has read the archive in their own way, selected images with which to work, and created a newly commissioned art installation in response. By commissioning new works, curators Doina Popescu and Peggy Gale enable vibrant examinations, complex re-contextualizations and exciting contemporary re-interpretations of the historic images.

As viewers of these artists’ works we are offered the rare opportunity to experience the potential for multiple layers of meaning hidden in the archive. At the same time we are invited to explore some of the creative processes behind eight significant contemporary art practices.

Collect the WWWorld: The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age

Collect the WWWorld: The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age | Inter-Facing the Archive | Scoop.it

Collect the WWWorld: The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age is an attempt to show how art responds to the information society. The last decade has witnessed an incredible growth in the production and distribution of images and cultural contents. The availability of inexpensive production tools has seen an exponential rise in amateur creativity, while the Internet provides a new distribution platform for this kind of production, which previously remained private. The show investigates the impact of this process on art practices and on the role of the artist, who more and more evolves into a filter, a collector, an archivist, a post-producer of already existent cultural material.

Furthermore, Collect the WWWorld sets out to demonstrate how the Internet generation is implementing and developing a practice started in the Sixties by Conceptual Art, and further developed in subsequent decades in the forms of Appropriation Art and postproduction: the practice of exploring, collecting, archiving, manipulating and reusing huge amounts of cultural material produced by popular culture and advertising.

Collect the WWWorld is a show first produced by the Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age and already presented, in different versions, at Spazio Contemporanea, Brescia (Italy) in September 2011 and at the House of Electronic Arts Basel (Switzerland) in March 2012. The presentation at 319 Scholes will feature a number of new artists and works in a brand-new arrangement. The show relies on an ongoing research project that can be followed online at http://collectheworld.linkartcenter.eu.

The show will also include a reading area with the catalogue of the show, other books by Link Editions, artist books, texts, and catalogues that provided inspiration for the show. The exhibition will serve as the launch for Ryan Trecartin’s Ryan’s Web 1.0, a new e-book that features his W Magazine set as well as documentation of the research that went into the piece, which will be free for download in PDF format.

Participating artists include: Alterazioni Video (I), Kari Altmann (US), Gazira Babeli (I), Kevin Bewersdorf (US), Aleksandra Domanovic (D), Constant Dullaart (NL), Elisa Giardina Papa (I), Travis Hallenbeck (US), Jason Huff (US), Jodi (NL), Oliver Laric (D), Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied (D), Eva and Franco Mattes (I), Jon Rafman (US), Ryder Ripps (US), Evan Roth (US), Ryan Trecartin (US), Brad Troemel (US), Penelope Umbrico (US), and Clement Valla (US).

Domenico Quaranta (1978, Brescia, Italy) is an art critic and curator. He is a regular contributor to Flash Art and Artpulse. He is the editor (with M. Bittanti) of the book GameScenes: Art in the Age of Videogames (2006) and the author of Media, New Media, Postmedia (2010) and In Your Computer (2011). He has curated various exhibitions, including Holy Fire: Art of the Digital Age (Bruxelles 2008, with Y. Bernard), Playlist (Gijon 2009 and Bruxelles 2010) and Collect the WWWorld (Brescia 2011 and Basel 2012). He is a co-founder of the Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age.

Monika Fleischmann’s and Wolfgang Strauss’s artistic and scientific contribution to the Digital Archive.

 

The exhibition “Inter-Facing the Archive” is Monika Fleischmann’s and Wolfgang Strauss’s artistic and scientific contribution to the Digital Archive. Using the example of the media-art platform netzspannung.org, “Knowledge Discovery Tools” are presented which develop the Digital Media Art Archive by way of semantic knowledge maps and audio-visual data-streams.

 

“Netzspannung.org and its groundbreaking interfaces create cognitive and data structures. What has been created here is a model for an international educational infrastructure that deserves imitation.” (Peter Weibel)

 

In his publication “100 Products of the Future”, physicist and Nobel Laureate Theodor W. Hänsch counts the “Semantic Map” among the pioneering ideas destined to transform our lives.

Netzspannung.org was developed under the supervision of Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss at MARS Exploratory Media Lab of Fraunhofer IMK and IAIS. It was funded by BMBF.

Friedrich Kittlers Habilitationsverfahren Spucken hilft nicht, Herr Kollege!

Friedrich Kittlers Habilitationsverfahren Spucken hilft nicht, Herr Kollege! | Inter-Facing the Archive | Scoop.it

Friedrich Kittlers Buch „Aufschreibesysteme“ gilt heute als Klassiker der Medientheorie. 1982 aber wurde seine Wissenschaftlichkeit bezweifelt. Jetzt liegen die Habilitationsakten im „Fall Kittler“ offen.

...

Das hätte Friedrich Kittler gefallen. Der im Oktober gestorbene Kulturtheoretiker war in seinen jungen Jahren ein Universitätsereignis, weil er die Geisteswissenschaften zum Studium von Technik, Medien und Akten anhalten wollte. In der „Zeitschrift für Medienwissenschaft“ publiziert der Lüneburger Medienhistoriker Claus Pias jetzt Auszüge aus der legendären Habilitationsakte Kittlers. Und zwar alle Gutachten, die damals, 1982 und 1983, zu Kittlers Arbeit „Aufschreibesysteme 1800/1900“ verfasst worden sind, sowie ein von Kittler damals eigens für das Verfahren geschriebenes, unpubliziert gebliebenes Vorwort dazu.

....

Ein Gerücht wurde dieses lange Verfahren aufgrund der hohen Zahl an Gutachten. Elf Stück waren offenbar nötig, um einzuschätzen, ob dieser Autor auf die studierende Menschheit losgelassen werden könne. Von den drei Hauptgutachtern bejahten das zwei, einer riet ab. Doch auch manche bejahende Stellungnahme hatte Beiklänge, etwa wenn der einstige Doktorvater Kittlers, der Germanist Gerhard Kaiser, im August 1982 die Habilitation „nicht nur aus Sinn für Humor“ befürwortete. Nicht nur: So süß kann Wohlwollen sein.
