sommercamp+workstation=2009 is meant as a practical example of the
feasibility of a “laboratory for art and media in Berlin” carrying on
the idea of TESLA - medialab.  The starting point of the four-month
project is the sommercamp from 10th to 16th of August - a module to
work and generate ideas, with ten open workshops and two days of final
presentations on 15th/16th of August 2009 at the House of World
Culture and a kick-off on 14th August 2009 at the radialsystem. The
second part of the project is the workstation - intended as project
production support - with three project residencies and a curatorial
grant that are produced in close collaboration with local and
international partners. A discursive weekend will take place from 13
to 15 November 2009 with the invited artists/projects and experts from
science and technology at Berlin based general public, in
collaboration with DISK/ctm.



The project will kick off with the sommercamp from the 10th to the
16th of August 2009 in the foyer and the studios at House of World
Culture with a number of different open workshops. Workshops are an
ideal form to sketch new approaches, to build interdisciplinary
bridges and above all to soften the borders between artist, thinker
and practitioner on the one side and a passive audience on the other
side. Workshops are “detectors” to test new working and communication
models, catalysts of ideas and indicators for their relevance and
acceptance. The invited workshops/artists/thinkers are exemplary for
very different approaches to art and technology, for individual
working methods, communication models and organisation structures.

sommercamp is devided in 3 workshop clusters:

A] World as Representation: systems and simulation.
B] Re:Discovering Sound an Instrument-building Workshop
C] Ways of Doing. Approaches, Manuals, Tactics, Strategies and the
Operational Art

The single workshops will be open for public (with registration - see
workshop clusters). After the one-week-workshop phase two days of
final presentations will take place on 15 and 16 August 2009 at the
House of World Culture.

At the beginning of the presentation of the sommercamp results, on 14
August 2009, :zoviet*france: Matt Wand and Atau Tanaka will perform
“Variations VII” by John Cage at the Berlin radialsystem, in real time
linked with 64 different places in Berlin and their sounds.
