Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien
Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7, Flux 1, 1030 Wien

Vortrag: Cornelia Sollfrank, Artist, Researcher and University Lecturer, Berlin
Moderation: Martina Griesser, /ecm Leitungsteam

In her talk Cornelia Sollfrank will give an introduction to the idea of "shadow libraries“ in general and put a special emphasis on digital archival projects that have been initiated by artists. While these artistic shadow libraries all provide functional solutions to problems of access and preservation, they can also be discussed as discursive projects that address a variety of problems in times of increasing enclosures.

Recurring subjects in her artistic and academic work in and about digital cultures are artistic infrastructures, new forms of (political) self-organization, authorship and intellectual property, techno-feminist practice and theory. She was co-founder of the collectives women-and-technology, -Innen and old boys network, and currently is research associate at the University of the Arts in Zürich for the project ‘Creating Commons’.
