Viadrinicum 2021. Transsectoral DigitalLab: (Dis-)Assembling the (Post-)Digital Social

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a workshop, seminar, course

Description

Viadrinicum is an annual summer school devoted to the countries of the Eastern Partnership, and the larger context of Central and Eastern Europe. This year’s edition is designed as a transsectoral DigitalLab, aiming to explore social and political dimensions of digital transformation from multiple theoretical and methodological perspectives. With the help of online academic seminars, the school will allow its participants to critically engage with the notions of the digital self and the (post-)digital social, datafication and algorithmisation of life, as well as digital infrastructures and smart technologies.
The school features three Lab.Workshops (Art.Lab, Doc.Lab, Research.Lab), where the participants will be able to enhance practical and methodological skills, by means of developing their own small (team) projects under the close guidance of facilitators from the respective fields.
I participated in Doc.Lab, where I and fellow participants created our own Documentary films exploring the theme of the Summer School. I created a documentary film based on the findings from my Masters Dissertation on online community interaction with music videos published on YouTube. Our various projects were then presented to fellow participants, guest contributors, and members of the public (online) at the Brandenburg State Museum for Modern Art.
