Joana Moll’s work explores and addresses the relationships between digitality, materiality and politics – and the various effects these relationships have on society, economy and ecology. Her main research topics include the materiality of the internet, surveillance, social profiling, interfaces and energy. Her work is presented in renowned museums, galleries, universities and festivals around the world. With „Carbolytics“ she presents her latest project.

Carbolytics is a project at the intersection of art and research that aims to raise awareness and call for action on the environmental impact of pervasive surveillance within the advertising technology ecosystem (AdTech), as well as to provide a new perspective to address the social and environmental costs of opaque data collection practices. Online tracking is the act of collecting data from online user activity, such as reading the news, purchasing items, interacting on social media or simply doing an online search. It is known that tracking and recording users’ behaviour has become a major business model in the last decade. However, even though the societal and ethical consequences of abusive online surveillance practices have been a subject of public debate at least since Snowden’s revelations in 2013, the energy and environmental costs of such processes have been kept away from the public eye. The global data collection apparatus is a complex techno maze that needs vast amounts of resources to exist and operate, yet companies rarely disclose information on the environmental footprint of such operations. Moreover, part of the energy costs of data collection practices is inflicted upon the user, who also involuntarily assumes a portion of its environmental footprint. Although this is a critical aspect of surveillance, there’s an alarming lack of social, political, corporate and governmental will for accountability, thus a call for action is urgent.

Die PLATFORM GLITCH AESTHETIC konnte im Jahr 2023 mit Hilfe der NEUSTART KULTUR-Förderung "Plattformen der Bildenden Kunst" aus den Mitteln der Bundesbeauftragten für Kultur und Medien gegründet werden. Das Ausstellungs- und Diskussionsprogramm mit Artefakten von Rosa Menkman, Nadja Verena Marcin, Katrin Leitner & Isaac Sullivan gibt faszinierende Einblicke in die Alchemie der Glitch Art, des Glitch Feminismus und thematisiert Themen wie Algorithmensucht, KI-Detoxifikation und Halluzination.
Die Projektdokumentation trägt den Titel GLITCH PHENOMENA 3.0. Als Kuratorisches Essay in PDF-Format GlitchPhenomena.3.0 ist es, herunterladbar.
:
Unser künstlerisches Engagement wurzelt in dem Manifest GLITCH FEMINSM, das 2020 von der in New York lebenden Autorin, Aktivistin und Kuratorin Legacy Russell veröffentlicht wurde. 2021 wurde der Text von Ann Cotten, Franziska Füchsl, Mark Kanak, Barbara Eder, Bradley Williams Cohen, Claire Palzer, Lotta Thießen, Jacob Kraner und Tiona Sironic ins Deutsche übersetzt und im Merve Verlag Leipzig veröffentlicht. Als kuratorische Reflexion GHOST*S OF LIFE*S führen wir die kritische Philosophie von Mark Fisher weiter.
