Our notions of nature and technology are inherently intermingled and separated only in our cultural articulations. Taking this premise as a starting point, the intervention presented by Selena Savic and Gordan Savičić marks the beginning of their new project "Antenna Fieldguide", which gathers artistic representations of synthetic nature. Based on the special exhibition "Curious Communication: Unusual Objects and Stories from the Collection" at the Museum of Communication, the two artists* invite visitors to performative guided walks with specially produced antenna objects during the Lange Nacht der Museen. The guided tours developed by the artists expand the references of the exhibition through narratives around the different types and forms of antennas as elementary infrastructures of our contemporary communication and thus as everyday, hidden objects that are frequently encountered in urban and rural landscapes and yet are foreign to the eye.
As evolved beings produced by a biosphere, we're not capable of perceiving reality unassisted. There can only be our technical instrumentalities. Our weak, decaying, flawed, falsifiable, even pitiable instrumentalities. But that's how we learn what's natural and real - through the unnatural. - Bruce Sterling
28 August • 14:00 - 17:00 • Feldfünf Projekträume
Writing Workshop
On the following day a writing workshop will collect results that will be incorporated into the Antenna Fieldguide.

Forests of Antennas, Oceans of Waves is a series of events that delves into the phenomena of electromagnetic waves in urban environments from both an artistic and theoretical perspective.
In workshops, interactive walking tours, lectures, sound performances, presentations, installations and discussions, we intend to shed light on the various physical, social, legal, urban, political, biological and ecological implications of “Hertzian Space”.
