Lunch Bytes Conference

Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, Germany 

20 March (6-9pm) - 21 March (10am-7.30pm)


Constant Dullaart will be part of the Lunch Bytes Conference happening at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin on the 20 - 21 March 2015


The Lunch Bytes conference marks the conclusion of a discussion series that took place throughout 2014 in seven cities across Northwestern Europe: Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, Helsinki, London and Stockholm. Panel discussions focused on the increasing significance of digital technologies with respect to art. Leading artists, academics, designers and curators examined important trends in the area of digital culture and their influence on contemporary art.

 

This particular two-day event at Haus der Kulturen der Welt aims to delve deeper into the central themes that have emerged during the series of these international meetings. Questions to be addressed at the Lunch Bytes conference include: How can we develop a fruitful discussion on digital culture now that digital technologies wholly dominate our everyday lives, and the internet has been declared dead? How can we enter a discourse on the Internet's influence on art that moves beyond the “Post-Internet” hype? And to what extent do we need to redefine concepts such as medium, materiality, activism, and subjectivity considering the fact that contemporary art practices are so inextricably combined with digital technologies?

 

On Friday, March 20, the conference will open with a keynote lecture by David Joselit and performances by Jenna Sutela, Paul Kneale and Ilja Karilampi. On Saturday, March 21, a number of panel discussions will be held, featuring speakers such as Diedrich Diederichsen, Katrina Sluis, Hito Steyerl, Ben Vickers and many more.
