Annual exhibition 2021: Klasse Prof. Simon Denny
Launch date: 12. Februar 2021, 18:00Uhr
Today communications infrastructure and logistics are often provided by private companies. We are forced to live our lives using these systems – but our efforts benefit the owners of these systems.
Denny class at HFBK has worked on a digital platform that distils this dynamic into a platform for artistic communication. We combine a copy of the popular social chat network Discord with a virtual copy of a Mercedes-Benz OM502LA truck engine – providing a flexible space where we can install digital artworks. The exhibition is structured through the thematic chat channels of the Discord user interface, and represent interrelated topics that the artists address in their work. The Discord chat structure allows visitors to interact with the works e.g. via emoji reactions or direct responses.
This exhibition space is both the digital presentation of the Denny class for 2021’s HFBK Annual exhibition, and commissioned as a part of the project »Conditions of a Necessity« initiated by Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.

Marthe Fock, The safety of a contraceptive method is defined by the Pearl Index which is based on 100 woman-years, so 100 women using the method for one year and the percentage of resulting pregnancies. This is one woman-year, so pill up!
