Stadtpark 1, A - 8010 Graz

The project series, under.ctrl, intends to define the interfaces of
mechanisms which systematically compose our lives. Interfaces themselves
have become the locus of control by being more effective than their
underlying mechanisms, yet more invisible and subtle in normalizing such
mechanisms which they veil. They operate in various layers of our daily
perception and realization through the re-designing of life styles;
procedures of auto-control; re-perception of histories; generating modes
social psychology; constructing communication channels; and particularly
through technological embodiment. The significant influence of these
interfaces, along with the direction and intensity of implicit and
acceptance and rejection modes, are being detected and questioned
subversive activities and reactions in different forms of expressions by
artistic practices. The project follows an empirical method through
researches carried out by different artistic practices focusing on
kinds of interfaces of control mechanisms operating in the social,
political, economic, cultural, geo-political, and psychological layers
our daily lives. In the same line of thought, this project is also an
attempt to detect tactics and rejection mechanisms along with the off
record strategies against the pressures and conditions of these

under.ctrl graz launch: interfaces of control mechanisms, which is
as an event in process with various performance formats, will put
observations on the various aspects of the mechanisms that control our
lives, in connection with their designed interfaces. Throughout these 3
days, Forum Stadtpark will host sound performances, installations and
screenings of works and documentaries (in a definite time frame with a
controlled and composite schedule) along with a panel that will be
publicized after the event. Therefore, it will operate as a platform of
discussion on how these interfaces are shaped and alter our lives in
different local contexts. loosing.ctrl (Turkish-Israeli project) -as one

programme. under.ctrl graz launch will bring a specific emphasis to the
