is an interdisciplinary artist-led collective developing new and progressive exhibition formats, new media arts and installation. We are working inbetween the digital and physical space, in the form of installations, interventions, video and 3d and are mostly known for our google maps squatting project
core69 members are (f.l.t.r.) Josepha Edbauer, Cris Anutoiu, Brooklyn J. Pakathi, Luke Dworschak, Maximilian Prag, Hannah Neckel, Roman Fleischmann
The collective’s interests are characterised by common reflections on the complex relationship between artificial and natural worlds, socio-cultural contexts, mediating on hyper-connectivity and displaying their individual responses to notions of fluid networked systems.
Using conceptual architectural strategies to create hybridized phygital environments that bring attention to their work, the collective use this playground to evaluate contemporary digital cultures.
Each project room69 develops is an opportunity to deploy new creative tactics in playing, meshing, glitching, and re-contextualizing internet spaces as well as extending the analogue understanding.
The collective work as artists, curators, producers, and researchers, applying experimental and disruptive techniques to formulate a collaborative, open, collective-driven art practice. They operate independently, distributing roles rotationally in order to expand the definitions of artistic practice - each member has an equal and diverse function in operating the collective.
