Telegram Residency (18)

Set: Buttney Reactions

A funny telegram sticker pack about Nadja Buttendorfs reactions.

Artist: Nadja Buttendorf

Nadja Buttendorf (1984) questions current norms and codes of gender constructions and value creation mechanisms of the human body in our digital society. Her works make it clear that our understanding of technology is also linked to patriarchal power relations. Her interactive works and video projects, on the other hand, draw multi-layered new narratives in which women become visible again as an elementary part of the history of technology. She extracts communicative moments of participation in the Internet both in her performative jewelry objects and in her tutorial workshops. DIY, as a widespread online aesthetic, is used specifically as a strategy of access and rejection of neoliberal work ethics.

Works and workshops by Nadja Buttendorf have been shown at the HKW Berlin, the Hartware MedienKunstVerein Dortmund, Künstlerhaus Bremen, LaGaîtéLyrique Paris, the MU Eindhoven, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, Halle 14 – Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig, the D21 Leipzig and the panke.gallery Berlin. She has also given lecture performances at Re:publica, the CCC, Creamcake and the nGbK Berlin. Nadja Buttendorf is a trained goldsmith and studied fine arts at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle (Saale

Opening at Haus der Statistik

we would like to invite you to our opening at Haus der Statistik (Otto-Braun Straße 70-72, Berlin) on 25th of January from 2 till 8 pm.

There will be a life-telegram-performance of the New Media Class of Kunsthochschule Kassel at 5 pm.

Since September 2019 the Center for Net Art invites artists and activists to create sticker sets and publish them on the Telegram Channel https://t.me/ZentrumderNetzkunst. Existing works are taken up, but also new concepts are developed. All artists and activists are administrators of the channel, so that the stickers can be used inside and outside the channel and circulate in chats.

Established in 2003, the New Media Class of Kunsthochschule Kassel deals with technologies, digital infrastructure and the attempt to leave behind obsolete patterns of communication. Reflecting social discourses is part of the agenda as well as artistic experiments. Since 2018, Rosa Menkman takes the role of the deputy professor. She is part of the Telegram sticker residency with her set “Les Inconnues”. 

The Graph Sticker Set is a collaborative project by: Vreneli Harborth, Malin Kuht, Fabian Gimpel, Fabian Heller, Niels Walter, Saskia Kaffenberger, Jan-Hendrik Gebbe, Christopher Cäsper and Yannick Stark.

Happy to see you on Saturday!
