Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium
The Weise7 in/compatible Laboratorium was an experimental workspace set up as an exchange between an artist and engineer run studio space at Weisestraße 7 in Neukölln and the Labor Berlin gallery at HKW in January-March 2012. The Studio Weise7 exhibition brings together a series of works that frame a volatile interrogation of our increased dependence on machines, computer networks, databases and digital automation. The works consist of curious devices, software and circuitry, each representing a unique, critical engagement with the challenges of our "techno-political condition". In doing so, they serve as triggers for discourse, code for study and tools for deployment.
