World of Noon is organised by the Berlin based artist-initiative ABA (Air Berlin Alexanderplatz) and sponsored by the Berlin Senate for Culture and Europe. <br>
World of Noon is a series of salons curated by Susanne Kriemann, Aleksander Komarov and Beatrijs Dikker (ABA). As research is increasingly influencing artistic practices, our aim is to outline forms of ephemeral investigations and widen the boundaries of what is defined as research. The upcoming Salon will discuss topics regarding digital archives and artistic praxis.<br>
“It is a fact that functionally complex systems are a challenge to creative thought. Were as functionally simple systems are stultifying, idiotic. The complex systems that now are coming about are complex in a structural sense. Weather they will be complex in a functional sense, depends on us (...)” Vilém Flusser, European Media Art Festival Osnabrück, 1988<br>
As the internet has become an ever bigger source of knowledge distribution and application; it has also become a place for artistic investigation and presentation. Following the thoughts of the media philosopher Vilém Flusser, we would like to talk about the potentials and challenges of digital databases for artists with research focussed practices. <br>
Among over 2500 manuscripts, publications and documents of Flusser's correspondence, we will look at developments of what he called “the revolution of the technical image” through concepts such as: authenticity and originality, private vs. public and the institutional vs. the political and the commercial. <br>
Participants: Graham Kelly (UK/NL), Pxflux (BY), Anita Jóri (Vilém Flusser Archive) (HU),<br> Viktorija Šiaulytė (LT).<br>
