Maybe donaufestival is a conversion program of the imaginary. Or a ritual. Or a virus. Maybe it dreams of electric sheep, hanging freestyle from the cliff face, hoping for WE-NGOs instead of ME-INCs. Each year donaufestival creates a parallel world between system crash and reboot with music, performance, and visual art.

A BED, A CHAIR AND A TABLE
XPUB | Poortgebouw (eds.)
Piet Zwart Experimental Publishing 2018
The starting point of the book was the Autonomous Archive in the Poortgebouw, an archiving machine built from different computers. Oral histories are interlaced with material from various institutional and personal archives. Bringing together tales of resistance, political struggle, frustration and friendship with historical documents, the book reveals new perspectives about the Poortgebouw's unique history and its importance in the contemporary city.

Whoever speaks of "new media" today must be reporting about days longs since past. Postdigital questions the distinction made between traditional fine arts and new media art since the 1990s for the categories digital and analog have in the meanwhile become irrelevant.
