Mini-symposium: Working on the Internet
6th MEETING 06.12.2016
INVITED GUEST: Emilia Bergmark, Oscar Ramos
and Henriette Kruse
We were investigating the Internet as a working space. Our focus was on the activities of design educations, curating and editing in the digital sphere. The event took place at Officin Exhibition Space in Copenhagen.
To support a fully digital experience one often has to integrate different platforms such as apps, web, social media, cms etc. These platforms are sometimes pre-designed and come with an already defined aesthetics. We believe new actions is needed for new working conditions. How can one possibly frame these conditions? We are going to explore different angles like: re-thinking design education with new assignments. An online exhibition program and the role of the curator/artist. Editing and presenting (exhibit) a hybrid magazine both online and IRL.
In addition we also want to recommend you to read the report from a recent research project Code(ex): Media Conversion by Alexandra Borg, Uppsala University and Pelle Snickars, Umeå University (in Swedish) ⟶ see next column.
