B6C Hosts: bastardCROWD[mobile] @ Basement6 Art Collective
Underground [literally] art gallery B6C welcomes artists Daniel Aschwanden and Conny Zenk from Vienna for a multimedia performance and workshop. The duo invites you to bring your devices and explore our surrounding urban setting for a rethinking of how we relate to our everyday technology. Using practices like “face.scan”, digitally produced and graphically layered videos accomplished by an audio composition by composer Veronika Mayer and present large projections, referring to the practice of the selfie to approach the question, rather asking new ones then answering.
