|<nettime-ann> [oil21] This weekend at Wiederaufbau für Kreditanstalt|
. Wiederaufbau für Kreditanstalt Mauerstraße 68, Ecke Leipziger U2 Mohrenstraße, U6 Stadtmitte
Thursday, November 15, 9 pm Checks and Balances. Introducing Wiederaufbau für Kreditanstalt Opening event with Jan Gerber and Sebastian Lütgert
"The Oil of the 21st Century" invites you, for a night of mostly copyrighted music and some assorted drinks, back to a rather historic street corner in South Mitte -- even though, ten years after, that history may be relatively difficult to reconstruct. As opposed to -- and across from the entrance to the parking garage of -- "Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau", which is the national "Bank for Reconstruction", "Wiederaufbau für Kreditanstalt" means "Reconstruction for Bank". As a name for a venue, this may be a slightly more honest assessment of one's own role in the long history of permanently temporary spaces and strategic redevelopment of property in the center of Berlin.
Friday, November 16, 3 pm - late Saturday, November 17, 1 pm - late Shivers of Sharing. Offsite Backup for the Rest of Us A two-day workshop with Jamie King (stealthisfilm.com) and James Stevens (consume.net)
"Shivers of Sharing" is an event based on the principle of person-to-person exchange of materials from the public domain. For two days, a local ad-hoc network will be created among participants. One of the key concepts of the workshop is the idea of the "offsite backup" -- the fact that personal data and private archives are much less susceptible to corruption, loss, theft, human error or technical failure once they are mirrored, in parts or in entirety, across multiple physical locations. Please bring laptops, hard drives, CDs, DVDs, USB sticks, music players, cables and power plugs.
Sunday, November 18, 7 pm Copyfarleft & Copyjustright Lecture and discussion with Dmytri Kleiner (telekommunisten.net)
Challenges to traditional copyright resulting from peer-to-peer applications, free software, file-sharing and appropriation art have caused a wide ranging debate on the future of copyright. Dmytri Kleiner brings existing critiques of material property from the left to bear upon the realm of copyleft artistic production and asks how, within the existing copyright regime, can artists earn a living?
