Artist Talk with UBERMORGEN
About the event
As part of the TAG DER CLUBKULTUR we will celebrate the finissage of "150" with an artist talk by UBERMORGEN.
The artist duo will talk about the polemic anticipatory “D-Mark COIN-White Paper” which they have released on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition at panke.gallery in September.
150 takes up the nightmarish idea of the Proclamation of the German Empire, corresponding with current Alt-Right manifestations enabled by Crypto Bro Libertarianism. In commemoration of said “150 years Germany,” UEBERMORGEN's work addresses cybernetic issues and artistically investigates informational processes in both the social and technological space.
Sakrowski, the curator of the exhibiton, will be at panke.gallery to do a live video call with the artists. The talk will also be streamed live on our twitch channel.
