Workshop #1: FAKE IT! Self-Dramatization in Art and on Social Media
Have you got an interest in self-dramatization in front of the camera and in toying with “fake” and fiction on social media and in art? Are you fascinated by how artists and influencers present themselves in front of the camera and on social media and how actors constantly reinvent themselves for their roles?
Then this workshop is the ideal opportunity to learn about different dramatization strategies and techniques and subsequently try them out for yourselves in the form of individual “fake reality” projects.
Info: Please bring a smartphone or tablet to the workshop. In addition, a photo camera can also be taken along.
Bernadette Anzengruber is a visual artist working with photography, video, performance, and objects, among other things. Topics she deals with include identity attributions, extraneous and self-dramatization through media, intimacy, the eroticism of commodities, and the corporeality of language.

Workshop #3: Coding for the Interactive DeepSpace
DeepSpace is a big room in the Ars Electronica Center that hosts a floor and wall projection. It is also equipped with laser tracking, which enables the positions of users to be determined.
In this workshop, we will take a look behind the scenes with the help of Studio1 at the University of Art and Design Linz and explore how these rooms work. Using the programming environment Processing, we will also develop our own little programs.
