Jennifer L. Morone

The London artist talks about her new business model. Using a company controlled by her, she markets her own personal data herself. Jennifer Lyn Morone literally becomes a one-woman business, acting as its founder, management board, shareholder and even its product. JLM Inc. operates the profit-oriented utilisation of her performance-based, health-related, genetic and physical data in order to survive the inevitable next stage of capitalism.

Verena Friedrich

Psychologists and neurologists assume that humans consider the now that we experience to last three seconds. This period, known as the psychological present, also plays a structuring role in music and verse.The history of art and culture, too, is full of examples that deal with the now and its transience. In The Long Now, Verena Friedrich reflects on this space of experience between memory and future that is so distinct to humans.

Britta Thie

In the six-part web series “Transatlantics“, the artist Britta Thie sheds light on the inner conflict of a generation “post-internet“, that moves between its analogue past and modern aestheticism. The audiovisual means of representation generate a distinct impression of hyperreality. Her installation also comments on the habit on permanently making an own YouTube series of one‘s life.
