originalcopy glatt&verkehrt reset the apparatus

Franz Thalmair & Michael Kargl (eds.)
De Gruyter 2019

The practice of copying has become omnipresent yet invisible, both in the digital realm and in the analog world. The arts-based research project originalcopy—Post-Digital Strategies of Appropriation proposes a working model that subjects the dichotomy of original and copy to a re-evaluation from a post-digital perspective and sheds light on this contradictory phenomenon.

Glatt&Verkehrt 2019 features 17 tightly packed festival days with 32 events, including 21 concerts, plus a series of introductory talks and table music.

RESET THE APPARATUS! was an arts-based research project, which investigated practices that are motivated by the idea of the photographic and the filmic but do not necessarily result in photographs or films—deviant and/or expanded uses of media, artworks that modify, repurpose, or even dismantle the conventional apparatus or dispositif and exemplify the myriad ways how it can be "reset".
