Artistic research project Commune by designer and curator Prem Krishnamurthy, Christoph Knoth and Konrad Renner and Klasse Digitale Grafik. A series of experimental dialogues juxtaposing different approaches to community.

Commune is a project by Prem Krishnamurthy with students of Klasse Digitale Grafik from HFBK Hamburg, within the framework of Hamburg Open Online University. Investigated the social structures and technical needs of temporary communities in the digital during the summer semester 2020. What power structures exist in the digital? Which, mostly invisible, technological as well as social norms build up?


pretending bending

The project »pretending bending«, started in 2018, is an attempt to describe and discover the bending of steel by transferring outlines of graphics into space and to understand steel with its limits and/maybe/hidden possibilities.

Bending something or bending something around decisions still means that you have to follow a certain line. Of course it also means that you will uncover a new line than the original one. However you will never escape the path you started on unless you cut it to detach yourself from it.

I proceeded with transferring the developed objects back into 2D plane explored in different media.

In the following, the process from the sketch to the sculpture back to the representation in different forms of communication is shown.

Klasse Digitale Grafik
Annual Exhibition HFBK Hamburg, Germany

We are always online but have we really read the terms and conditions? Are we just idling or are we really participating? Are we just floating with the stream or are we actively steering the debate? Klasse Digitale Grafik aims to claim the virtual spaces that were occupied by templates, closed platforms and walled gardens.
