The Exchange is a periodic in-depth look at the artistic motivations of musicians and collectives. We try to approach this from a more cultural and societal perspective, aside from the necessary musical one, because we cannot deny the influence of modern age bringing ideas from all over the world which broaden our horizons. It is a fact that we can learn a lot from movements that are foreign to us.
Technologie und das Unheimliche, Berlin-Budapest-Elsewhere
“T+U (Technologie und das Unheimliche) is a Berlin-Budapest-Elsewhere based publishing project and cross-disciplinary movement, that was initiated by Mark Fridvalszki, Zsolt Miklósvölgyi and Márió Z. Nemes. T+U aims to circuit the cultural phenomena resulting from the confrontation between the conditio humana and technology by thematic issues and related projects. Regarding to this mission, T+U mediates between cultural technologies within the context of post-digitality and tries to contaminate para-academic thinking with artistic tactics.” – About T+U
Researching the human condition through various forms of spatio-temporal ways of doing, or forms of action, of which music is in our eyes an important mediator, gives a possibility to understand and maybe even cope with the quickening fragmentation of community. It is thus always interesting and inspiring to speak with (foreign) movements who have the same drive to understand our contemporary society through research, interventions, and physical outputs. Moreover, T+U as a collective is a very good example of the new Hungarian wave in the cultural underground, to which labels like Farbwechsel belong.
We are thus very honored to have an excerpt of the latest publishing of T+U on HUNGAROFUTURISM, containing a detail of their manifesto and some amazing imagery.
