You are out There
The internet has long since been the place where people get to meet each other for the first time. We are all constantly creating digital profiles and avatars, and registering domains, user-IDs and passwords with wonderfully original names.
Multimedia and digital arts duo Chris Kondek and Christiane Kühl confront our omni-present self-portraits with the constantly growing ability of industry and bureaucracy to use our digital doubles for their own purposes. YOU ARE OUT THERE makes accomplices out of the audience using experimental IT technology in a multimedia ghost story which sounds out the way identities are manipulated on both sides of the law.
“Go forth and multiply! Hug your Avatar” That is not a call for mass schizophrenia, but is in fact a call for anarchy.” Egbert Tholl, Süddeutsche Zeitung.
“Kondek and Kühl undertake […] a journey through the history of identification strategies from the 16th century to the future and show us in thoroughly analogue scenes just what has long since been possible digitally.” Eva-Maria Magel, FAZ.
