0 Notes from Ars Electronica 2014

Went to Ars Electronica 2014, heaven for new media art geeks and dystopian digital futurists. Expedition time! A bewitched report!

0 Notes from Berlin Biennale 2014 Opening

“You need sense, not names!” – grumpy graaar-man. I went to the opening of Berlin Biennale 2014, at the Dahlem Museums. Lots of well dressed museum people, and a well dressed museum. It’s actually a contemporary art exhibition inside a historical cultural museum, kind of an exhibition-on-top-of-an-exhibition. New works are displayed…
