Digital Art Works. The Challenges of Conservation
How can digital data be secured in the long term if one's new laptop is already obsolete the moment it leaves the store? This phenomenon also causes difficulties in art: What happens to net art once the internet environment for which it was conceived has changed?

The world is full of obvious things that we are aware of and yet do not experience consciously – from the constant blinking of the eyes to our perception being shaped by media or the invisible structures that control our social lives. The chosen positions reflect these structures and expose them in their artistic transformation, at best even in a twofold manner: They open our eyes to the „hidden obvious“, yet also the „obviously hidden“ that surrounds us constantly.

Sensing Place engages with urban developments, new digital infrastructure and municipal space concepts. Transformed perceptions of urban space due to our data-oriented society is a significant aspect of the exhibition.
