“As KooneCompany was chosen by the Goethe Institut Montreal for their Dance Residency Programm in summer 2011, we created the 1 hour length piece: “5 Degrees Of Separation” .
After the good work in Montreal we take the next step and show the premiere of the piece on the 3rd of november in Herne at the Kulturzentrum Herne… The premiere will be part of the well known “Pottporus Festival” initiated by Pottporus e.V. / Renegade Theatre .”
Und hier das ursprüngliche Konzept von uns >>
“before the fuck”, social glitch, 4000x3000px, 2012-2013
Sometimes, no need for glitching, society glitches all by itself. Some call this post privacy art…
“before the fuck” is an ongoing series of digital stills taken from porn sites and chat pages in that particular moment, when the user / actor leaves the room and us with that distinctive feeling of loneliness and bleak despair. It is a look inside the sadness and harshness of modern day sexuality when confronted with ‘the market’.

“Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
ché la diritta via era smarrita.”

shopping for our lives
“Spielecke” (playground area for kids), glitch – 3rd grade, 3026x 2219px, 2013
The original picture was photographed at a shopping mall (Rathaus-Center Pankow) in Berlin. This empty playground area says it all for me: here you can store your kids whilst going shopping, the cold solitude of modern day consumerism, the emptiness of our post-modern world starts to take its toll. Soon it will fill ours heats and minds, leaving a gaping void that cannot be filled with goods any more… So let us shop while we still can.

(found by Sulamith Sallmann)
Proposal for a terminology; hierarchy of glitch:
- 1st grade: found glitch, no derivation, no editing
- 2nd grade: found glitch, adapted, edited or changed
- 3rd grade: induced glitch, no derivation, no editing
- 4th grade: induced glitch, adapted, edited or changed
- 5th grade (maybe over the top): 4th grade reglitched
Am I onto something or has this already been done?
