Armin Medosch, Lecture at "Histories of the Post-Digital"

In this talk I presented the beginning of new research based on the notion of the technological unconscious in relation to early computer art. The lecture draws on research conducted in the context of my PhD on the New Tendencies movement and network, and further research in related areas done since then. The presentation was part of the Saturday seminars held in the context of the exhibition "Histories of the Post-digital", curated by Ekmel Ertan and Darko Fritz. It was held in the lecture theatre at Akbank Sanat, which is also the exhibition venue, a multistore art and culture center sponsored by a bank, and located in the center of Istanbul. I will publish the full text shortly on and the organisers are going to publish the video documentation of the lecture.
