Thursday, 1.2. 2007, 12 hrs, Akademie Hanseatenweg, Salon 'Bordergames' is an international open-source computer game project. It offers young migrants a creative tool for self-representation and for a critical analysis of their environment. It also serves as an instrument for reflecting and communicating about social conflicts. The subject and content of the different local versions of Bordergames- are the specific living conditions of young migrants in political, social and cultural border areas. Starting from their immediate environment, the teenagers can choose characters, dialogues and paths by themselves, learning the specific IT skills to realize the computer game.
'Bordergames Kreuzberg' evolves from a cooperation with the Spanish art and activist collective La Fiambrera Obrera. At the transmediale.07, Spanish and Berlin-based members of the group will show the three already existing versions of -Bordergames- (Lavapies, Figueres and Rifgames) and will present the Berlin workshop, scheduled to start in spring 2007 in the area around Wrangelstrasse in Kreuzberg.
Participants: Bordergames Kreuzberg, La Fiambrera Obrera
Whatever happened to Tactical Media?
Thursday, 1.2. 2007, 16 hrs, Akademie Hanseatenweg, Salon
Creating a collaborative culture has been the main goal of video activism, independent practices that are based upon cooperation and networking. Can online tools and services such as YouTube or Flickr provide new cultural identities and open up new areas of dialogue and critique? What political role does the Net play today as a tool for collaborative production? Is self-sufficiency and the DIY ethos still important in the age of Web 2.0? And what is the actual relevance of tactical media today?
Participants: Baerbel Schoenafinger, Katsiaryna Herasenkava, Pauluk Kanavalchyk, Anastasia Nekozakova, Petko Dourmana, Fran Ilich, Micz Flor
