The Cyberpunk and Capitalist Realism Study Group is a multi-disciplinary group of academics, students, activists, artists and musicians instigated by Carmen Schmöl at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Our goal is to examine the cultural significance of Cyberpunk by paying special attention to the entanglement of space and identities in the sphere of postmodernism and capitalist realism. Four members of the group will attend the Titanik Artist in Residency program this February.
Allison Wendt, USA. Berlin based artist working across various media, research and performance. Past work has dealt with the legacy of racism in contemporary America, autonomous art communities and the politics surrounding DIY noise music in Indonesia.
Emmanuel Pidré, Argentina. Artist working in sculpture and installation, based in Berlin where they are also studying Fine Arts at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule. Pidré’s work challenges the audience to acknowledge structures and perceptions around individual subjectivity.
Hannah Rose Stewart, UK. Berlin based artist working across various media. She is concerned with imagining other worlds beyond the banality of capitalist realism, through simulation, speculative fiction and trend research. Hannah is also professionally trained as a 3D designer.
Timothy George Kelly, Australia. London & Berlin based filmmaker and artist. His art practise verges often into the realm of an instigator and facilitator. His film work often engages with politics and post-modern identity. He’s directed two feature-length documentaries including Brexitannia (2017) which festivalled widely.
