Unstable and Vernacular: Vulgar and Trivial Articulations of Networked Communication

A session at Transmediale 2k + 12

Saturday 4th February, 2012

4:00pm to 4:00pm (CET)

Panel with Camille Paloque-Berges (fr), Olia Lialina (ru), Dragan Espenschied (de), Florian Cramer (de/nl)

Over the last decade, the history of the web and all its “common” qualities – or digital folklore – has become a growing field of study. The role of the “user” giving form to his medium (its materials, customs, ideologies and aesthetic structures, which are closely connected to visual, textual and audio cultures) has become key to this research. Moreover, these coarse or unrefined DIY-fabrications have become (re-)appraised treasures or relics of amateur culture. This panel will reflect on different on/offline (dead and alive) DIY-networks focusing on their vulgar vernaculars, ideologies and customs, and on how we came to appraise them.
