PUF Remix_Carrito Cultural-Dia de Playita_video

Medellin, Colombia, Aug. 2012, in collaboration with El Puente_Lab

Cultural activation of the Medellín River has been under agenda of the project Carrito Cultural (mobile cultural infrastructure), exploring potential of tactical interventions at particular spots in order to change citizen’s perceptions of the abandoned and hardly accessible area right in the middle of the vibrant metropolis. By inviting street-artist collective Deúniti to paint large-scale mural at the one of the river sedimentations, atmosphere of the conventional city-beach has been staged, involving homeless people that live at the location and inviting random citizens that use the river occasionally for the bike-based recreation. After capturing this unusual situation, local percussion collective Alibombo has borrowed us sound background produced at the car’s cemetery.

Collective offline-hub

Tempelhof Airport, Berlin, 23.06. 2012

On the occasion of the exhibition The World Is Not Fair, AXP collective was invited to intervene in the pavilion of Institut für Raumexperimente under the title Translation Acts. For that purpose site-specific installation has been built, offering possibility of collective writing on pirate-box driven Etherpad Lite. Participants had chance to write a collective poem, to develop color based pattern and to do the mash-up from the given texts.

PUF Remix_Jamming Underused Socialist Treasures_video

October 2011, in collaboration with Critical Urbanism Lab

Both the form and content of the J.U.S.T. project are motivated by a desire to counter one of the effects of globalization, particularly visible in, though by no means limited to, Eastern Europe. This is the sense that development is only possible when international capital is interested in investing in a particular site. The challenge of the J.U.S.T. project is to reverse this logic – can jamming spaces on a local level act as a catalyst for urban transformations aiming at greater social justice? Urban interventions have long been utilized in critical or artistic approaches.What this project aims to do is test their potential for providing alternative development strategies for underused spaces without flirting with power structures.

PUF Remix_Making Visible_video

August 2011, video director & editing Julia Kloiber

Making-visible is a prerequisite for collective knowledge – and each mode of production makes their own, be it through visual or other channels. AXP C4 aims to question the differences and similarities between science and the plastic arts in terms of making-visible. In a playful examination of the scientific format of the conference, work and interventions are seen through open debates about science, art and architectural production. In itself a specific format of making-visible, the video at the same time documents what happened on occasion of C4 and shapes the retrospective perception of the event.

PUF at MONU Magazine

Article The Digital Habitat and Urban Editing as Emerging Practice, with Jan Bovelet, MONU Magazine #14 (Editing Urbanism), April 2011

Despite the current urgency to deal with the enormous potential of the already existing urban material as Urban Editors, there seems still to be an enormous lack of interest in topics such as urban and architectural restoration, preservation, renovation, redevelopment, renewal or adaptive reuse of old structures among architects and urban designers. But ignorance in this matter can only be dismissed as socially irresponsible and economically and culturally unacceptable. But what might be the reason for the prevailing ignorance? Who is to blame? Why is Urban Editing considered to be so utterly unattractive?

PUF Remix_Wrecking Pendulum_video

Jan 2011, collaboration with  Jan Bovelet

As an object that has been constructed to be destroyed, Wrecking Pendulum contains complex geometrical patterns in the prototyping and digital fabrication phase and is constituted by its performative character rooted in the idea of the prop in theater and film. Questioning production of space through the idea of producing site-specific knowledge, the project asked for the incorporation of cultural memory and existing social landscape at Alexanderplatz as crucial factors in the formation of the new, as opposed to top-down imposed and economic driven urban morphologies.

In co-opearation with video artists Julia Kloiber and Christoph&Stephan Hartmann and audio artist Anatol Sirous the analytical visual documentation of the temporal exhibition project was developed into a small new project of its own.
