Since 1991, the chair Kulturinformatik (cultural informatics) at Leuphana University Lüneburg has been organising the workshop HyperKult in the summer. The portmanteau “HyperKult” alludes to the development of computer technology which facilitates an ever increasing coupling of computers with culture as a medium for production in art and literature and as an object of philosophical and cultural theory analysis.
Now in its 22nd year, HyperKult offers an unique blend of talks combined with artistic and technical exhibits, installations, performances, sculptures and graphics.
This year HyperKult will tackle the topic of “Standards, Norms and Protocols” and their role in shaping our culture with contributions and talks in the fields of art, science, humanities, technology and informatics. The talks will be held in German.
Hosted by the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI), working group “Computers as Media“, HyperKult 22 will take place at the Centre for Digital Cultures at Leuphana University Lüneburg.
We would like to discuss these issues with you at HyperKult and hope to see you in Lüneburg. Further information as well as the conference schedule (in German) can be found on the conference website.
