Digitization is eating away at its creators and helpers

When reality and pseudo-reality alienate each other

INTRODUCTION:

Literature and quotations are deliberately avoided here. 

So that it becomes easier to ignore 

One can confidently dedicate oneself to pleasant things of the virtuality. 

The short text is dedicated to the few students and open minds in the RUC.

SCIENCE AS SUPERFICIALITY

Sensitive or explosive topics attract interested parties. They want to learn more and the especially the good ones want to have a list of publications in order to control, discard, expose the author of a challenging article, to accuse of unscientific approach, - and by the way to convey; everything is in the best of order, and if not, then it will be soon!

OPWA Health AGAHI Camp in Village Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka

The AVI project of DGFK

Occasionally, looking back is helpful in order to understand what happened!


Experimenting with photographic technology and incorporating unusual perspectives into the medium lead to results between astonishment and amazement among the viewer - It is the time of change between analog and digital photography.


The work of the M.St. of the 80s led to one of the exclusive art prizes of the DGFK, for the first time in this direction to videographies in light boxes, a new view of the environment and representation of body parts, among other things.


One of the DGFK projects, in addition to FaxLithos with Itazu-Wehler, DigKat with Dorrit Yacoby, daVinci University with Wankie-Biasio, GlobalWorld with Lancelle, IFA Festival in Berlin (1991-1993) and LIFE Festival in Lahore (1994-1997) is the AVI project, which even has a physical place in Rupt sur Moselle, with the director M.St. had until other activities postponed these considerations.


It should also not go unmentioned how working digitally has developed the IPC project, the scientific branch of the DGFK, through animation, and also in communication and information, which is also proven by the above-mentioned projects, for example the Internet-Radio Project, which was implemented in Pakistan, Germany and Cameroon.



Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Foerderung der Kultur e.V

INTRODUCTION

As a partner society we take the opportunity to introduce the DGFK e.V. -German Society for the Promotion of Culture. This is a non-governmental organization that was registered with the Associations registry of Berlin-Charlottenburg in 1973. Preparations for establishing the association had started in 1972. The founding members were among others, Andre Warner, Norbert Pintsch, [1] Wilhelm Koessl, Manoocher Firoozan (Iran), Billy Aparicio (Bolivia) and S.K. Lee (Korea).

OBJECTIVES

The cultural model was to serve as the basis for international activities, in which the influences of the different cultures were mutually recognized and honored. This resulted in openness and solidarity with artists, scientists, etc.

Between 1972 and 1992, around 140 projects were carried out with artists, writers, composers, photographers and designers. The cooperation criteria were met by many unknown personalities who remained young in spirit and numerous foreigners from outside Europe.

The DGFK awarded an Art Award for German speakers and scholarships for foreigners. [3]

HISTORY

Around 1990 began a general reversal of brain drain and invitations from returning formerly funded individuals led to activities and long-term projects in the following countries: Israel, Greece, Pakistan (from 1991), Cameroon (from 1998), Colombia (from 1999) and Iceland.

One example was Senta Maria Anna Siller's initiative [4] to develop new projects for women in rural areas on the basis of scientific research on traditional culture as an income-generating measure. This resulted in starting of volunteer projects (Thatta Kedona / Pakistan, CAT / Cameroon, Tanto Mejor por la Paz / Colombia) on adapted technology, marketing, handicrafts, etc.

Further initiatives developed out of the circle of connected people as NGOs or activities but also out of independent initiatives of the following creative personalities abroad:

H. D. Heckes
Karin Adrian
Gittebritt Komakech
Fabio Biasio
Peter Fronzeck
Spyros Kardamakis
James Kubsch
Romillio Rodriguez Fajardo
Kanjii Sekine
Santosh K. Brahma

WORK

Individual members received honors and awards to honor their commitment: e,g. Elizabeth Carew-Reed / Australia; Norbert Pintsch / Cameroon; Senta Maria Anna Siller (1996), Karola Groch (2010), Renate Perner (2016) and Monika Kuppler (2017) received the Federal Cross of Merit as an award.

The work of the DGFK was presented in various solo exhibitions, lectures and guest lectures and contributed towards enlarging its network.

The DGFK initiated various projects, including a .: IPC / Institute for Planning and Consulting, IFA / International Festival for Animation, AVI / Academy for Visualization and Interaction, LIFE / Lahore Festival of EduTainment, Cultura e.V. at the Borsig estate in Nauen and ensured international participation, e.g. at EXPO 2000 in Hanover and at EXPO 2005 in Aichi / Japan.

Introduction

It is nothing new, you will find it everywhere in the urban areas,
for example there, where the results of actions of two opposites collide.
The loss of Identity and dexterity is giving way to a sham advance in the global consumption culture.
