An urban spatial sonification of knowbotiq's Z vier Doppel X: Contact. Jane (Remote) with Pablo Torres
Meeting point: Bona Peiser | Sozio-kulturelle Projekträume, Oranienstr. 72, 10969 Berlin
The tour starts in front of the project space Bona Peisa in the Otto-Suhr-Siedlung. At four stations, the participants are offered short installative settings by Pablo Torres, who sonifys the human and non-human, organic and technological materialities of urban bodies and extends knowbotiq's Z vier Doppel X: Contact. Jane (Remote) expands.
Their real dystopia, set in urban space, has meanwhile also been launched online and can be walked through by oneself. At nine buildings and squares in the Luisenstadt, the female avatar ENAY speaks of the often invisible techno-political and techno-aesthetic histories of these places. Based on urban researcher Jane Jacobs, the figure is activated in its digital remoteness via smartphone. She warns us not to abandon the social and emphatic qualities of the urban to the visions and models of a neoliberal “predictable city”.
