Ljubljana / Aksioma / Kino Šiška / 27 February 2024

A partially algorithmically generated embodied conversation between three different logics. Lecture performance, Cornelia Sollfrank and Alexandre Puttick

Data cyborgs are hybrid beings. Digital data is their key component, but this data is related to other entities in manifold ways. In this case, an amateur breather provides body data by performing breathing exercises and capturing them with the help of various sensors. The assiduous data scientist studies this data, analyses it and processes it in order to extract knowledge. Eventually, the data itself takes a stance and insists on its own perspective.

(un)real data – real effects

Ljubljana / Aksioma / 27-28 February 2024

The 15th edition of Tactics&Practice explores how the ambiguous quality of data can be used as a tool to produce real-world outcomes. Can the act of purposely creating data provide agency within data-driven systems? Is it possible to manipulate data to create specific effects?

Revisiting Feminist Art

Hamburg (2006) / Paris (2007) / Berlin (2008)

Revisiting Feminist Art is a series of reenactments of early feminist performance art. In the act of repetition, Cornelia Sollfrank took the place of the artists she selected and fashioned a test assembly by confronting the concept of the subject of these early feminist artworks with the action theoretical concept of repetition. The relevance of the repeated work and the statement produced by it is put forward for discussion along with the diversity of feminist practices. For this series, Cornelia Sollfrank selected artists and works that had influenced her as a young artist feminist: Valie Export’s „Mappe der Hundigkeit“, Annette Messager’s „Les Approaches“, and Niki de Saint Phalle’s „Peinture au Fusil.“
