the start of a lecture performance about our GPS and daily data collection practices. About privacy in a networked world, the search for a sense of the self in contemporary life, the use of technology as prosthetic and the seemingly contradictory use of technology as a device to reflect upon slowness, spirituality and the need to teach data storage technologies to forget. Let’s see what comes out.

Lilli Kuschel – Architekturfotos / Video
Lilli Kuschel ist als Filmemacherin ihre eigene Kamerafrau. Ihre Bilder städtischer Ensembles, Verkehrsanlagen und kommunikativer Akte sprechen eine eigenwillig genaue Sprache. Die existierende Wirklichkeit nimmt in ihren Bildern überraschende Formen an, ohne dass an ihr gerührt werden müßte. Das Entrückte und Verrückte der Normalität wird aus der Komposition der Dinge auf der Bildfläche heraus sichtbar. Kaum ein Wort wird gesagt, aber der gestaltende Blick hat begriffen. In Sonnenallee fährt die Kamera eine Straße in Berlin-Neukölln ab, den Blick gerichtet auf die Fassaden, Läden und Schaufenster, und so langsam, daß man die vielen Beschriftungen lesen kann.
