welcome: Christian Heck


* Beginning at the KHM: What are the things you are most looking forward to and/or are excited about?
I’m happy to be part of exMedia! Especially now, after one month working here – the team is a great heterogeneous mixture of extraordinary people. I hope students too … ! ^_*) … i will find out in the following years…: I’m curious what we are going to build up together in the exMedia Lab. What we are going to realize up there in this Open Space – Room n°4.02/4.03

* What is your artistic/scientific background? What are your main starting points in being an artist and/or scientist?
As an Media Artist, I’m working into the fields between glitch art & code poetry. I’m organizing actions & exhibitions in project- and public spaces together with friends & colleagues
as Media Activist, I create distances to machines. I’m running self-organized project spaces, love cultural hacking & to encrypt everything which is floating into the technosphere
the main topic of my artistic and scientific research can be described as »Fehlerquelle Mensch 4.0« – how to make human machine readable. Therefore i give regularly workshops & talks on Festivals, Squats & Institutions. I’m teaching anti-militarists, artists, grassroots-activists, childrens, hackers, academics & farmers.

* Which three words would you use to describe yourself or your topics?
