#onethumbebandid by Sebastian Matthias

From an understanding derived from watching and making TikTok-videos, a heterogenous group of co-researchers created artistic responses to performative strategies from each of their (artistic) perspectives. Each response that is produced as part of this Performative Collection will offer a starting point to pinpoint how dancing online and watching dance online has become a powerful tool to construct users realities.

Knowledge Space(s) of Globalisation by Melcher Ruhkopf

behind/beyond PABR –  a sound project  by Kathrin Wildner

behind / beyond  PABR has a look behind the written texts of the online publication, relating the research formats to urban politics and activist practices, feeding them into participative settings as well as alternative institutional practices. In order to reach beyond  scientific and artistic communities and to include political activists, political educational projects, we conceptualise and compose short sound files and make them accessible on social media platforms such as SoundCloud, Instragram, and Twitter.
