Performance Workshop & Cloud Bar

SA 08 02 2020, 1:00 – 5:00 pm
Public Cloud Bar from 3:30 – 5:00 pm


We all know the uncanny feeling when the advertising inserts on social media platforms are occasionally all too accurate: pregnancy tests for women of childbearing age, certain products from online shops we just visited, and sometimes products we didn’t even know we need. The traces we leave behind on the Internet are invisible to us, but they have very real consequences. In this light, targeted product advertising is probably still one of the more bearable implications of data usage.

In the performance workshop TRAKKATAKK artist Daniela Brugger and participants address questions concerning visibility and invisibility on the Internet. TRAKKATAKK is inspired by cryptolabs, but interpreted with artistic means: a camp for creative, digital self-defence and a format for knowledge exchange. Cryptoparties are taking place around the world. At these events people teach each other encryption techniques. Daniela Brugger adapts this exchange format to thematise visibility and invisibility on the Internet but also to intervene in concrete contexts with artistic methods.


Due to the limited number of participants, we kindly ask you to register for the performance workshop between 1:00 and 3:30 pm with .

The Cloud Bar from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, where visitors can view various relics from the workshop and the digital self-defence stations, does not require prior registration.


The artist Daniela Brugger situates her work between artistic production, collaboration, curation, and art education, and views her practice as a mode of exchange. She questions supposedly given conditions and conceives informal knowledge production and dissemination as an organisational form of resistance and solidarity. She is the initiator of Who writes his_tory? – a collaborative writing project that investigates the reproduction of knowledge and structural discrimination on the Internet, and especially on Wikipedia – a European ambassador of the Art+Feminism campaign, and was the co-director of the exhibition space Klingental in Basel between 2014 and 2017. Her work was awarded with studio residencies in Berlin and Johannesburg as well as the “Kulturförderpreis” of the City of Basel in 2018.
