Transmediale 17 (18.2.2017) – The Telekommunist International

Digital worker cat smashes a cloudIn commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Putilov Strike of 1917 and the ensuing Russian revolution, telekommunisten is organizing a day of political workshops, culminating with a delegates’ assembly on Saturday February 18th at the ver.di labour union headquarters in Berlin.

This will be followed by a commemorative celebration at c-base Space Station.

Leadership Workshop

Join us for a leadership workshop focusing on Counterpolitics, Technological Disobedience and Queering Communism.

The Workshop will be hosted by Dmytri Kleiner and Baruch Gottlieb, with presentations and facilitation by Ewa Majewska, Zeljko Blace, Daniel B. Tirado, Gavin Mendel Gleeson, Seda Gurses, and Diana McCarty.

Workshop participants will develop political vision and prepare for delivering rousing speeches at the delegate assembly.

Delegate Assembly

100 years after Russian Revolution, we find ourselves at a critical political crossroads. After decades of neoliberal, austerity politics, perpetual war and economic crisis, people are ready for a contemporary political vision for this century. Come and share your vision! We want to hear from you!

Metaphysische Maschinen (27.01.2017, 19:00-22:00)

Metaphysische Maschinen - Technoimaginative Entwicklung und ihre Geschichte in Kunst und Kultur

Metaphysische Maschinen

Heiko Schmid (*1978/D, lebt und arbeitet in Zürich) im Gespräch mit Nicolas Moulin (*1970/FR, lebt und arbeitet in Berlin)

In seinem Ende 2016 erschienenen Buch Metaphysische Maschinen beschäftigt sich der Kunstwissenschaftler Heiko Schmid mit so unterschiedlichen aber gleichzeitig für die aktuelle Kunst und Kultur wichtigen Phänomenen wie der populären Astronomie, der Künstlerbewegung der Futuristen, dem Science-Fiction-Genre, den Entstehungszusammenhängen der Raketentechnologien und dem Theorem der vierten Dimension. Das zentrale Anliegen seiner Studie ist es, den Maschinenbegriff kultur- und kunsthistorisch in einen komplexen Rahmen technoimaginativer Entwicklungen einzubetten.

Der Künstler Nicolas Moulin setzt sich in seiner Arbeit mit New Wave Science-Fiction-Narrativen, den dystopischen Potentialen aktueller Technologien sowie der brutalistischen Architektur auseinander. Er thematisiert in seiner künstlerischen Arbeit hierbei wiederholt jene technoimaginativen Bedingungen und Begebenheiten, die Heiko Schmid in seiner Studie aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven beleuchtet. Zusammen werden sie in der c-base ein installatives Display entwickeln und vor dessen Hintergrund die Relevanz von Heiko Schmids Themen und Thesen für aktuellste Entwicklungen in Kunst, Kultur und Technik diskutieren.

Linux Presentation Day – Saturday 14.11.

The next Linux Presentation Day (2015.2) will happen on 14. November 2015 in around 75 cities in Germany, Austria and the Suisse.

We’re presenting Linux applications, too. The event will begin at 12:00 AM.

Here’s a preliminary list of groups that will be present @c-base during the day:

  • Linux Audio Users Berlin
  • some Bitwig Studio Users
  • Hackerfleet

If you’d like to show fellow Hackers and normal Users what you’re doing with Linux or just would like to represent your user group, get in touch with me (riot@c-base.org or on freenode irc)

Wednesday 4.11. 1930: Linux Audio Users Berlin

The Linux Audio User Group Berlin is meeting this Wednesday 19:30 – so join us for a nice discussion about general Linux Audio topics and maybe a little bit of jamming afterwards.

Also, riot will present his newest creation: AVIO – an opensource multimedia performance toolset written in Python.

Machine Learning Stammtisch (March, 7th, 19.00 CET)

This Friday, the new Machine Learning regular’s table  will meet for the first time at c-base.

Daniel Nouri will give a talk in which you will learn about recent developments around deep neural networks, with a focus on convolutional neural networks, which have enabled huge improvements in the state of the art of image classification. We will discuss:

  • tricks that enabled the breakthrough of ConvNets, which were originally conveiced in the 1980s
  • how using deep neural nets compares to traditional image recognition; applications, advantages and drawbacks
  • good ways for you to get started with ConvNets; an overview of available open source implementations
  • tips for training train deep neural nets effectively

The talk will be approximately 45 minutes long.  There will be plenty of time to discuss questions about not only the talk but about our new Berlin machine learning group in general: what are our goals, how often do we meet and when, what subjects do we want to hear about etc.

If you’re interested in machine learning, you shouldn’t miss this event 😉

  • Friday (07.03.14) evening, 7 pm
  • c-base space station – mainhall

Hope to meet you there!
