An escape and evasion map developed for the thirty years anniversary edition of transmediale festival in collaboration with Neural. The publication was distributed through special editions of Neural magazine’s issue 56, where it is accompanied by an introductory essay. The map addresses illusive tendencies to escape – be it from technology, society, or earth – and recounts historical and current episodes of people’s strategies for attempted escapes. For the launch of the publication, a series of parallel workshops were held at the 2017 transmediale festival in Berlin.

Unmaking: 5 Anxieties
For transmediale 2016 in Berlin we developed and designed an Unmaking Kit to facilitate a discussion on maker and hacker culture. The publication took the form of a card deck that is arranged around five thematic anxieties. It was handed out to visitors throughout the festival days and guided a dedicated discussion session as part of the transmediale program.

Three Questions On Media Criticality
The booklet and respective website is the setout for an inquiry into the conditions, modes and potentials of critique of, in, and through ‘media’. It was developed on occasion of a discussion session held by IXDM’s Critical Media Lab and guests at Transmediale 2015 in Berlin. The field notebook is a collection of responses by invited scholars, artists and designers on three provocative questions: What are promising modes of critique today? What is critical about media technologies? What comes after critique?
