The revolutionary impact of technological media is inescapable worldwide. It is not only that they are set to weld the world into a homogenous “globality”. They also bring forth diverse “realities” and non-simultaneities that escalate into ungovernable fragmentation and conflicts. This symposium aims to contribute to formulating artistic and theoretical perspectives on these “revolutions” that give the virtual a new turn. The starting point is always the “in-between” in which the media (Mediale) primarily finds its indefinable “meaning”, but also mislays it. The lectures and presentations will discuss artistic and activist praxis and scientific approaches that seek such “twists” in the media.

Whenever technological media want to get hold of the “in-between” that is the challenge they face, they have to close up against exit lines that evade an instrumental appropriation. Their “deviance” is as potent as an inalienable precondition of media techniques as it is as a factor of their own krísis.
