monochrom content info

Hedonistika 2016 will take place at Cinematheque Holon (near Tel Aviv) as part of Print Screen Festival!

Hedonistika is an interactive exhibition of gastronomical robots, cocktail machines, and experimental food performances.

Created by artists collective monochrom from Vienna, Hedonistika is a travelling festival which moves from city to city and culinary landscape to culinary landscape, find local curatorial partners and cooperate with local hackers, builders, chemists and food phreaks to present a tour-de-farce of new approaches and discourses.

Hedonistika says: don't let us trick ourselves into the absurd belief that organic food and machines are enemies. They aren't. It's the system, dummies!

You don't play with food? Well, not enough, we'd say!

Opening: Wednesday | June 22, 2016 | 20:00-23:30
Exhibition: Thursday | June 23, 2016 | 20:00-23:30 Saturday | June 25, 2016 | 19:00-23:30

"UK Film Review" reports about Traceroute

monochrom content info

Hannah Sayer of UK Film Review wrote a great review of Traceroute and give us three stars!

The quirky and ironic humour is effective throughout and this is showcased from the beginning when Grenzfurthner introduces the first stop on the road trip, San Francisco, as a place of endless opportunity, as well as homelessness. Within the various interviews that take place, there is a real sense that this is a collaborative exploration of creativity: of the old and the new, the past and the present, and the traditional and the digital. The use of photography and drawings interspersed between the interviews with various people associated with nerd culture shows an artistic approach to the material and these images act as reflective snapshots of moments in time, reinforcing the importance of looking back to the past as well as looking forward to the future of the digital age.

monochrom is an art-technology-philosophy group having its seat in Vienna and Zeta Draconis. monochrom is an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science, context hacking and political activism. Our mission is conducted everywhere, but first and foremost in culture-archeological digs into the seats (and pockets) of ideology and entertainment. monochrom has existed in this (and almost every other) form since 1993.
