  2. 2. Next Art Education „The Next Art is the art of the Next Society.“ „Like all pedagogy, Next Art Pedagogy has to be radically thought towards future.“ 2013

  4. 4. I. Digitality: Code, Data, Networks, Interfaces
  5. 5. The digital Web ist a mycelium.What seems to be an object – e.g. of pedagogical intervention, like digital gadets or platforms – is a mere manifestation 
 of an underlying infrastructur which always remains invisible. h"ps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Heksenkring.jpg
  6. 6. Digital „Bildung“ (?) Education in digital cultures? Arts education in digital cultures?
  7. 7. Code Data Networks Interface
  8. 8. Code Data Networks Interface
  9. 9. Software/Code/Algorithms Data Networks Interface
  10. 10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldMsMDGu0V8 New Virtual Instruments not based upon sample technology, but on simulation models of the physical models of the complex, dynamically interacting materiality of musical instruments by means of complex, dynamically interacting algorithms. These platonic instruments are not „false real“ things, but „true virtual“ things, coming along with many or even more of the expressive possibilities than their material counterparts.

  12. 12. Software/Code/Algorithms Data Networks Interface
  13. 13. Data = digital cultural objects defined by Protocols performed by Software/Code/Algorithms
  14. 14. Look, it’s the Mona Lisa! 0xFF 0xD8 0xFF 0xE0 0x00 0x10 0x4A 0x46 0x49 0x46 0x00 0x01 …
  15. 15. Protocols and formats „lock in“ the relation of cultural objects and perception mp3 – psychoacoustics jpg – psychovisualistics .h264 – ps.vis. in time
  16. 16. MIDI (Music Instrument Digital Interface) byte 1: note on/off byte 2: coded note value (diachronic) byte 3: velocity (0-128)
  17. 17. MIDI (Music Instrument Digital Interface) not only defining basic understandings of notes, but being an industry standard of music production globally (synchronizing studio production and postproduction tools).
  18. 18. Software/Code/Algorithms Data Networks Interface
  19. 19. Software/Code/Algorithms Data Networks Interface

  21. 21. Onyx Ashanti – BeatJazz https://www.ted.com/talks/onyx_ashanti_this_is_beatjazz
  22. 22. {Code + Hardware data materiality senses ↔ sense
  23. 23. Code + data requiring the most versatile materialities
  24. 24. Today, we are surrounded by 
 super versatile materialities: silicone (logical/temporal resolution) Displays (visual resolution) Speakers (auditive resolution) Nanomaterials, 3d Printing Materials
 (spatial & mechanical resolution)
  25. 25. Software/Code/Algorithms Data Networks Interface
  26. 26. https://www.ableton.com/de/live/
  27. 27. „Software Studies“ Software as cultural expression Software, Power, and Hegemony Software as individual/collective expression https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/series/software-studies
  28. 28. II. Digitality, Mediality,Aesthetics
  29. 29. symbolic/cultural forms vs. aesthetics vs. mediality materialities
  30. 30. „media“ vs. „mediality“
  31. 31. Medium loosely coupled forms Form Visibility, Order, Meaning „Mediatization“ (emergent event, signs appearing) „Mediatisierung“ nach Dieter Mersch 2002, S. 56 ff. (im Anschluss an Luhmann) Mersch, D. (2002). Ereignis und Aura: Untersuchungen zu einer ÄstheGk des PerformaGven. Frankfurt/M.: Suhrkamp. = form + materiality
  32. 32. „The Medium is the Message“, 
 i.e. the underlying „structuring structures“. Marshall McLuhan 
 (1911-1980)
  33. 33. Digital Transformations of 
 Aesthetic Processes
  34. 34. symbolic/cultural forms vs. aesthetics vs. mediality digitality materialities
  35. 35. symbolic/cultural forms vs. aesthetics vs. mediality digitality materialities
  36. 36. symbolic/cultural forms vs. aesthetics vs. mediality digitality materialities Art, as a reflexive discourse by means of cultural forms of expression (arts), transgresses common and taken-for- granted relations of forms, aesthetics, medialities and materialities, enabling experience of and reflection upon their multiple implications.
  37. 37. Kazimir Malevich, Black Square, 1915
  38. 38. Yves Klein, L'accord bleu (RE 10), 1960
  39. 39. Magri"e, La trahison des images (Ceci n'est pas une pipe), 1929
  40. 40. Marcel Duchamp, Fountain, 1917
  41. 41. III. „Bildung“
  42. 42. „Bildung“ encompasses subjectivation/power self-determination alterity reflexivity identity transgression
  43. 43. „Bildung“ as a transgression of framings (world-views) Marotzki, W. (1990). Entwurf einer strukturalen Bildungstheorie. Weinheim: Dt. Studien-Verlag.
  44. 44. cultural/aesthetical, arts-related „Bildung“ encompasses subjectivation/power, self- determination, alterity, reflexivity, identity, transgression with respect to symbolic forms through aesthetic articulation
  45. 45. code rules:
 closed vs. open digital architectures e.g.Virtual Worlds/Avatars Visual Digital Tools Cultural Hacking
