19:00 to 22:00
location: Scapino, Eendrachtsstraat 8, Rotterdam

Critical Art Ensemble opened the Next Five Minutes conference with a performance on The Matter of Media. In a preparatory text, Andreas Broeckmann wrote: The Critical Art Ensemble ruthlessly exposes the excesses of cyberculture as it preys on the human body: cyborg slaves, data body, and tongue spasms. The CAE suggests a series of tactics, through which these invasions can be irritated, if not countered: countersurveillance, data body infections, and electronic civil disobedience.

Three performance-presentations took place here: Eric Hobijn presented Techno-Parasites, Critical Art Ensemble gave the performance The Matter of Media, and Kevin McCoy and Jennifer Bozick-McCoy performed Achieving Sufficient Fluidity: Tactics in Implementing Advanced Media Strategies.
