Dear friends and colleagues,
we are very much looking forward to the workshop „WikiWhat?
Collaborative building and maintenance of knowledge resources
using monoskop.org <http://monoskop.org> as an example“ with Dusan Barok.
It will take place as part of the exhibition OPEN SCORES at
panke.gallery in Berlin.
Cu there, felix
SUNDAY 22 September 2019
, 11:00 – 17:00
Since the early days of the Web, Wiki software plays a crucial role in
the collaborative formation and maintenance of knowledge resources. Its
basic principles include that (authorized) people can read, change and
contribute content and materials, that all changes are transparent
(through versioning), and that the basic technique of linking allows for
creating new relationships and thus build new systems of meaning. Based
on Wiki software, the project monoskop.org <http://monoskop.org> has
grown into a major cultural resource over the last decade. It evolved
from linking and contextualizing information on Central and Eastern
European experimental and media arts to host relevant materials, such
as books, texts, documents and media files, and thus became a publishing
initiative in its own right.
Taking his own work as founder and main editor of the site as a starting
point, Dušan Barok will conduct a workshop exploring the theoretical and
practical potential of wikis to support long-term collaborative projects
and foster the aesthetics of linking.
This workshop is for cultural producers interested in exploring the
potential of wikis to organize heterogeneous materials in their own
fields of practice. No special technical skills are necessary to
participate, please bring your own laptop.
Limited number of participants. Please register with workshop [at]

If you want to tune, there is a wonderful interview with Dusan online here:
>From Notepad to Cultural Resource, Interview with Dusan Barok
Dušan Barok is a researcher, artist and cultural activist based
in Amsterdam. His practice involves networked media, participatory
events and experimental publishing, and he runs and edits Monoskop.
Monoskop is a media wiki that evolved from linking and contextualizing
information on Eastern European experimental and media arts to host
relevant files, such as books, texts, documents and media files, and
thus became a publishing initiative in its own right. Due to its
constant growth, Monoskop has transformed from a special interest
archive to become a significant cultural resource. Today the wiki
comprises of 6,744 entries and 13,616 documents, and the related
wordpress log introduces new publications on a regular basis.
Increasingly, Monoskop also triggers offline events, frequently with
cultural institutions that have come to appreciate the unique resources
of this autonomous archive.
