What would critique do if it could be associated with more, not with less, with multiplication, not subtraction.
What is a Media Lab?
Read more about the Critical Media Lab in an interview with Claudia Mareis, director of IXDM, and senior researcher Jamie Allen.
As an ongoing exchange with Institut Kunst we host two or three of their MA students.
In a time when we are realising that the former new media have not lived up to their oftentimes promising radical power, the laboratory is a place where the potentials and limitations of old and new media are used in service of critical questioning and experimental thinking.
Critical practice intends a set of objects (physical and otherwise) more readily open to scrutiny, more available to thought. The use and reflection on the technological, the shaping of material complexes, ignites a potential for critique that is as fundamental and intrinsic as it is disruptive or incisive: the critical knowledge of a system, the critical moments of a process or critical states of a material; along with criticism of ideology or opaqueness in the world.
The Critical Media Lab’s facilities and programme are coordinated and curated by Shintaro Miyazaki.
