Strl+S - and our data is already stored in a place to which even we could not give directions: in the cloud. The exhibition Stormy Weather deals with these (and other) man-made clouds and, through the lens of contemporary art, asks about our agency in times that are increasingly governed by complex technologies.
In the curator's tour on 14 11 2020, Katharina Brandl will guide visitors through the show and answer their questions: Why is the place where we not only store our data, but have also shifted large parts of our computing power to, named and represented as a cloud? How are weather, climate and technological history intertwined? And: How is this reflected by means of contemporary art?
After the guided tour we invite you to play a round TECH TABU with us.
Are Tor, router and IP address foreign words for you? Then play with us Tech Tabu! The game, originally designed for a so-called "cloud bar", was developed by the artist Daniela Brugger in the context of the performance workshop TRAKKATAKK and deals with data security on the Internet. You can cheat yourself with your most complicated passwords and personal data more game time and play for a goodie from Kunstraum Niederoesterreich.
