Curating Your Memory

Curating Your Memory
Curating Your Memory is an evening about deleting, curating and dealing with big data on a personal scale.

v2-1

French philosopher Jacques Derrida made the claim that ‘the mutation in technology changes not simply the archiving process, but what is archivable – that is, the content of what has to be archived is changed by the technology’. What he means is that the style of the content is transformed through new processes and production. Moreover, the relation to time and space created by the fact that within mere seconds one can reach someone in every corner of the world, has also affected the content. Of course this also effects power relations, decision-making and accountability. It is generally known and accepted that archives construct a specific account of history, many things end up in an archive, but even more remains outside, to be forgotten. Questions like who is in charge of an archive, who selects, and for whom is the archive, have been plaguing archives from the beginning. One could argue that the digital accelerates this process, so how to relate to this new situation? What is the value of digital memory and how to deal with big data on a small scale? These questions form the start of an evening with three perspectives.

With Robert Sakrowski, Dragan Espenschied and Igor Štromajer, moderated by Annet Dekker.

This public event is organised by Piet Zwart Institute, Dept of Media Design – Networked & Lens-Based, and made possible with the support of Goethe Institute and V2_.

This weekend: Schreib dein Lied! / Write your song! – @textxtnd live at @basisfrankfurt 🎤 concert performance, 13, 14, 15 Dec 2019 🎶 among others → a #poem by @iintima: Ich bin (nicht gut genug) / I Am (Not Good Enough) will be set to music, sung and played live exclusively for this performance 🎼 "An experimental #performance with #music and #lyrics, based on new #German art, folk and pop lyrics by people around us. Schreib dein Lied! aims to focus on our relationship to the German #language in all its cultural and social forms. Our language is shaped by all those who acquire it and make use of it. It is as diverse as our society and only in all its forms the language of the 'people'. These heterogeneous forms are to be brought back into the #song, into the canon of cultural exchange between people who live here." 🎵 Oliver #Augst: vocals, composition | Alexandre #Bellenger: turntables | Arnaud #Rivière: percussion, electronics | Charlotte #Arens: dramaturgy, production management | Production/Conception: #textXTND – textxtnd.de | Sponsored by the Kulturamt der Stadt #Frankfurt am Main, the Hessische Ministerium für Wissenschaft und #Kunst ● [img]: textXTND/basis-frankfurt.de
