Kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur 1/21: “Code“
In the age of ubiquitous digital computer technologies and human-machine collaborations, code is experiencing a revival in various contexts: source codes, binary codes and algorithms; software, encryption technologies and cryptography; numerical codes, formulas and
functions; (geo)mapping, biometrics or computational genomics.
Codes are attributions, representations and entanglements of information and meaning. They are relations and dependencies which they simultaneously co-produce. However, codes also enable practices of appropriation, counterdiscourse and reinterpretation or even become an end-in-itself in code art.
The 1/2021 issue of the magazine "kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur" focuses on code in its multiple forms, on its engineering and (de-)ciphering.
The deadline for finished papers and contributions is January 30th, 2021.
