Die Gstettensaga: Review auf Telepolis

Schöne Rezi der Gstettensaga auf Telepolis.
Die Künstlergruppe Monochrom erregte in der Vergangenheit unter anderem mit André-Hitler-Plattencovern, der Aktion Eigenblunzn, dem Computerspiel Sowjet Unterzögersdorf und einer ISS-Weltraum-Sitcom Aufsehen. Nun hat sie mit der Gstettensaga ihren ersten (zumindest halbwegs) abendfüllenden Spielfilm fertiggestellt – nach eigenen Angaben eine "No-Budget-Produktion", die nur 5000 Euro gekostet hat.

Die gnostisch angehauchte Groteske spielt auf dem Gebiet Österreichs nach einem dritten Weltkrieg zwischen den beiden Supermächten China und Google. Wie es sich für ein postapokalyptisches Szenario gehört, sind zahlreiche jetzt selbstverständliche Technologien verloren gegangen, so dass der Mogul Thurnher von Pjölk mit dem wiedererfundenen Druck mit beweglichen Lettern die öffentliche Meinung in der Megacity Schwechat beherrschen kann.

Die Gstettensaga: Review auf PlanetNeukoln.tv

Stefan Tiron hat ein wunderbares Review unseres Films "Die Gstettensaga" veröffentlicht.
I recently had the great satisfaction to watch a preview of a very fresh postapocalyptic feature film + a directorial debut, that premiered on Austria’s ORF in March this year. What I was asking myself this time was to try and appreciate an entirely different kind of algorithmic force that was once again set loose by Johannes Grenzfurthner (of monochrom fame) upon unsuspecting survivors of the last 35 years of road-warrior, post-nuke, after-the-bomb films.

As a friend just tweeted, now every Hollywood blockbuster seems to be written by some underlying algorithm. The end credits are just the cinematic equivalent to a CAPTCHA response – trying to identify the film crew as human, even if this last human verification test is untenable and obsolete.
Well, I kinda have this incredible (and maybe you do too!) and perverse desire to get to the bottom of actual directorial algorithms – trying very hard to enter the loop and be able to forget how Hollywood movie after movie manages to push an exact quota of car explosions, 3D makeover, eye-popping HD footage, hero worship, body count, family values, rescue missions ad infinitum into box office paradise.

Let’s be clear, I’m overenthusiastic about Gstettensaga – because it is such a genre bender, a satiric H bomb, a horror movie and ex-auction house vaudeville  going for the unexpected dialectical turns of current history, and leading us into the untrodden and definitely outrageous wastelands that could be populated by the likes of Surf Nazis Must Die, Escape from NY, Steel Dawn or America 3000.

Crowdvernaderung funktioniert! Die Wahrheit über "Die Gstettensaga: The Rise of Echsenfriedl"

"Die Gstettensaga: The Rise of Echsenfriedl" contains a text insert similar to watermarks used in festival viewing copies: "This viewing copy is provided for awards consideration only." The text insert asks the viewer to report the film as copyright infringement by calling a premium-rate phone number (1.09 EUR/minute). The film aired on Austrian national television in March 2014. Art group 'monochrom' co-financed the film with proceeds from the premium-rate number. They call this new strategy 'crowdratting.'

"Are You Ready to Fuck Like a Nerd?" -- Arse Elektronika auf dem Vice-Blog

Sure, classic nerds might be into MythBusters, Magic: the Gathering, and Minecraft. But they’re also into sex. In fact, the crossover between sex and the more traditional realms of nerd interest is longstanding; science fiction, for example, is frequently pointed at as a source of progressive and even transgressive sexual theory.

In devising alternate universes, authors, filmmakers, and fans imagine new ways of living, loving, and fucking. Sci-fi and comics are full of latex and leather and futuristic orgy planets where anything goes. Everyone loves it. Conventions like Arse Elektronika exist exclusively to provide an intersection for the worlds of sex and tech.

monochrom: Context-Hacking-Workshop in Linz

As it emerged in the 90s, the concept "communication guerilla" was, not least of all, a response to the exhaustion of traditional leftist activism after the fall of the Berlin wall. The search for new forms of praxis led (at least in some points) to a new, transversal praxis beyond the realm of the "old" activism - even though the point of departure for this search was the experience of a seminal defeat of the left. Today, following the rise and possibly already the incipient downfall of a new global movement, the situation is a different one, and the question arises as to the extent to which this concept from the 90s is still useful. The new activism has become more global, more networked, but most of all, it has developed a new dynamic beyond political and national borders. At the same time, however, this activism still evinces many features of the old polit-activism, not only in the neo-communist party version of the SWP (Socialist Workers Party) and Globalize Resistance. Despite all the rhetoric, activism often still has a stance that is strangely separated from people's everyday life, even that of its own protagonists. The future of this global activism will depend on whether it succeeds in being capable of action at the local level, the level of everyday life, while continuing to develop its transversal, border-crossing character at the same time. The most important border that has to be crossed is the border that constitutes the activist her or himself in a separation from the "rest" of society. We think that the praxis of the communication guerilla can contribute to this kind of border-crossing.

monochrom im neuen Reader "Truth is Concrete"

A handbook for artistic strategies in real politics.

How does art play a role in social and political struggles all over the world? Can it be a tool with which to shape the world rather than just reflect it? Following on from the "Truth is concrete" 24/7 marathon camp at the 2012 steirischer herbst festival, a manual of artistic strategies in politics and society is to be published in spring 2014 and is now available for pre-ordering. "Truth is concrete" collects 100 strategies by artists, activists and theorists, mapping the broad field of engaged art and artistic activism today. Additional essays focus on the philosophy, structures and modalities behind the many fights to make this world a better place.

Context Hacking: Some Examples of How to Mess with Art, the Media System, Law and the Market @ Shenkar Design School

The term "context hacking" --like its older mimetic sibling "communication guerrilla" -- refers to unconventional forms of communication and/or intervention in more conventional processes of communication. Context hacking is a specific style of political action drawing from a watchful view of the paradoxes and absurdities of power, turning these into the starting point for interventions by playing with representations and identities, with alienation and over-identification.

Johannes Grenzfurthner will present some projects by monochrom, a worldwide operating collective from Vienna dealing with technology, art, and philosophy that was founded in 1993. The group specializes in an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science, and political activism. Their mission is conducted everywhere, but first and foremost "in culture-archaeological digs into the seats (and pockets) of ideology and entertainment."

Arse Elektronika: Sex, Tech and the Future of Screw-It-Yourself @ Ha-Midrasha, Tel Aviv

Eine Vortragsperformance von Johannes Grenzfurthner / monochrom.
We may not forget that mankind is a sexual and tool-using species.
From the depiction of a vulva in a cave painting to the newest internet porno, technology and sexuality have always been closely linked. New technologies are quick to appeal to pornography consumers, and thus these customers represent a profitable market segment for the suppliers of new products and services.
Currently, all factors show that high-tech developments owe a great deal of their success to the need for further sexual stimulation. One could cite the example provided by the science-fiction concept of a full-body interface designed to produce sexual stimulation. But it isn't science fiction anymore. It's DIY.
As bio-hacking, sexually enhanced bodies, genetic utopias and plethora of gender have long been the focus of literature, science fiction and, increasingly, pornography, this year will see us explore the possibilities that fictional and authentic bodies have to offer. Our world is already way more bizarre than our ancestors could have ever imagined. But it may not be bizarre enough. "Bizarre enough for what?" -- you might ask. Bizarre enough to subvert the heterosexist matrix that is underlying our world and that we should hack and overcome for some quite pressing reasons within the next century.
Don't you think, replicants?

monochrom stellt vor: "SAFECAST: Citizen Science after Fukushima Makes an Impact"

monochrom freut sich eine wunderbare Initiative von guten Freunden vorstellen zu können.
Safecast is a non-ideological, non-profit, volunteer-based organization created in the days immediately following the the Fukushima NPP disaster, which began three years ago on March 11, 2011. The release of radioactive material was accompanied by a disturbing lack of clear public information concerning radiation levels in the affected areas, and a series of missteps and misstatements by the Japanese government and by TEPCO damaged their credibility in the eyes of large segments of the population. Credible and independent data concerning the growing radiation risk was sought by many to fill the acute information vacuum.
SAFECAST quickly began to field mobile detectors of its own design, which leveraged open-source software and hardware and new-generation DIY tools such as laser cutters and custom PCB fabrication to dramatically accelerate development and deployment time. The group simultaneously developed an information management system that allows GPS-tagged radiation data points to be uploaded into a central database and displayed on an interactive web-based map. SAFECAST's radiation information system has seen the rapid deployment no fewer than seven increasingly refined GPS-enabled mobile radiation detector designs, called "bGeigies," the web-based "GeoSense" map, a free iOS-based map application, and other devices and software, all developed by volunteers and made freely available through Creative Commons licenses.

The radiation data gathered by SAFECAST volunteers in Japan and abroad currently exceeds 15 million data points, arguably the most extensive public data set of its kind. It was soon hailed as a technically competent, credible, and objective source of radiation information for Japan by specialists on both sides of the nuclear power debate. SAFECAST has been invited to present it's methodology and criticisms at the IAEA "International Experts’ Meeting on Radiation Protection after the Fukushima Daiichi Accident: Promoting Confidence and Understanding," being held in Vienna from Feb. 17-21.

At Raum D, SAFECAST Volunteers Joe Moross and Azby Brown will show the group's latest mobile radiation detector designs, talk about iterative design and the challenges of building a technically adept global volunteer organization, and discuss what the future holds in store.
Raum D, Museumsquartier, Wien.

Jeff Ricketts: Interview featuring monochrom

Super REddit-Interview mit Jeff Ricketts... und er spricht auch über seine Arbeit mit uns hier bei monochrom.
I’m Jeff Ricketts, and I’m very, very happy and honoured to be here answering your questions and interacting with you all! Before we get started, here’s a little information about myself for those of you that don’t know my work away from “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and “Angel”...

I’m an American League-trained theatre, film, and television actor. I’ve performed in over 100 plays in New York, International theatre, Shakespeare festivals, and regional theatre. While in New York, I played the title role of Richard Schechner’s critically acclaimed production of FaustGastronome.

As far as I’m aware, I’m one of only six actors to appear in “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”, and “Firefly”. I played Weatherby of the Watcher’s Council in Buffy’s “This Year’s Girl” and “Who Are You?”, as well as playing the same character in Angel’s “Sanctuary”. I also played the Spider Demon in Angel’s “Sacrifice”, and played one of the two ‘Hands of Blue’ in Firefly’s “The Train Job” and “Ariel”. In addition to my roles on Joss Whedon’s shows, I’ve also appeared in CSI, 24, Charmed, Star Trek: Enterprise, Without A Trace, The Guardian, Philly, The Drew Carey Show, and NYPD Blue.

These days I live in Austria. My work in Austria includes playing the Captain of the International Space Station in Monochrom’s ISS. It’s an improvised sitcom that was filmed in front of a live audience. You can watch most of it for free here - http://www.monochrom.at/iss/ . My film credits include The Strange Case Of Wilhelm Reich, Holes, Clockstoppers, and Amber Benson’s “Chance” (along with Whedonverse alumni Amber Benson, James Marsters, and Andy Hallett). I’ve recently wrapped shooting on “Good Morning Kabul”, directed by Barbara Eder. Finally, I am about to appear in Monochrom’s film “Die Gstettensaga: The Rise Of Echsenfriedl”, where I will play the leader of the Barbarians. The film will premiere on ORF III in March of this year.

monochrom @ "The Cyborg's New Clothes - Wearable Computing, Iteractive Fashion and Skin 2.0"

SprecherInnen: Johannes Grenzfurthner (monochrom), Jesse Darling, Dr. Phoebe Moore, Krõõt Juurak.
VeranstalterInnen: Stefan Lutschinger & Adriana Smentek.
The wearable revolution is at the gates: Sensors and chip sets, the "peace dividend of the smartphone wars" as former WIRED editor in chief Chris Anderson puts it, are cheaper now than ever, making it easy for companies to incorporate sophisticated hardware into wearable devices. Many of the big names in consumer electronics have already released products at the International CES in Las Vegas. Like it or not, 2014 will be the year of the wearable. January's Cybersalon will touch of the following topics: Is Google Glass the continuation of CCTV by other means? How will the commodification and intrusion of our bodies by wearables change our perception and understanding of subjectivity? Is self-logging a trendy self-management strategy or does it create an El Dorado for personal data dealers? In which ways can critical artists respond to the challenges raised by the rapid human-machine integration? How can we tap the subversive potential of wearable technology? How can interactive fashion explore subjectivity as a nexus between inside, outside and in-between spaces? How can artificial pneumatic computer-controlled skin help us outsmart surveillance? Over the last two decades, the dialectic of political economy and technological progress has turned the vintage utopias of the 90s on their dystopian feet: 20 years ago, media art pioneer Nam June Paik had imagined the future Internet user as a Deleuzian prototype nomad warrior, cycling the Electronic Superhighway on a bike, dressed in a fancy data suit, wearing a neat surrealist Dali-style VR helmet. In 1995, MIT Media Lab founder Nicolas Negroponte had dreamt of the Body Net as the digital road warrior's kit upgrade, connecting your shoe computer to a wrist keyboard and head-up display: "Activating your body means that everything you touch is potentially digital. A handshake becomes an exchange of digital business cards, a friendly arm on the shoulder provides helpful data, touching a doorknob verifies your identity, and picking up a phone downloads your numbers and voice signature for faithful speech recognition." In 2014, however, the reality principle has gained the upper hand. We see supermarket workers in the UK wearing body-borne computers for performance monitoring and location tracking, a technology formerly employed in sports or pet-keeping. Shops in London are secretly snooping on customers by targeting their mobile phones through Wi-fi. In that fashion, the 'cyborg's new clothes' are capable of leaking our personal data to dark global data markets in real-time. Without a retailored Esprit de Costumes, we may all unwillingly become participants in a virtual World Naked Bike Ride.

arse elektronika: sex, tech and the future of screw-it-yourself @ lyst conference
eine vortragsperformance von johannes grenzfurthner / monochrom.

>>we may not forget that mankind is a sexual and tool-using species.
from the depiction of a vulva in a cave painting to the newest internet porn game, technology and sexuality have always been closely linked. new technologies are quick to appeal to pornography consumers, and thus these customers represent a profitable market segment for the suppliers of new products and services.
currently, all factors show that high-tech developments owe a great deal of their success to the need for further sexual stimulation. one could cite the example provided by the science-fiction concept of a full-body interface designed to produce sexual stimulation. but it isn't science fiction anymore. it's diy.

as bio-hacking, sexually enhanced bodies, genetic utopias and plethora of gender have long been the focus of literature, science fiction and, increasingly, pornography, this year will see us explore the possibilities that fictional and authentic bodies have to offer.
our world is already way more bizarre than our ancestors could have ever imagined. but it may not be bizarre enough. "bizarre enough for what?" -- you might ask. bizarre enough to subvert the heterosexist matrix that is underlying our world and that we should hack and overcome for some quite pressing reasons within the next century.

monochroms "six feet under club" in wien
>>in the age of data mining, a person's sex life may contain less embarrassing details than their web search history. does it make sense that the former is a tightly guarded secret while the latter is shared with anonymous corporations daily? even though a sexual nature is one of the few things most humans share in common, our social convention is to push all trace of it out of the public sphere. the six feet under club offers attendees a unique opportunity to experience the warping of public and private intimate space.

at monochrom's 6fuc events, couples can volunteer to be buried together in a casket beneath the ground. the space they occupy will be extremely private and intimate. the coffin is a reminder of the social norm of exclusive pair bonding "till death do us part". however, this intimate scene will be corrupted by the presence of a night vision webcam which projects the scene on to an outside wall. the audience will be privy to the scene inside, but the volunteers in the coffin will be completely isolated from them. the scenario keeps the intimacy of a sexual moment intact while moving the private act into public space. it can be seen as an absurd parody of pornographic cinema or an examination of the high value placed on sexual privacy. either way, won't you become a member of the six feet under club?<<
