monochrom is an art-technology-philosophy group having its seat in Vienna, Durango (Colorado) and Zeta Draconis (aka 'Left Wall of Purple Forbidden Enclosure'). monochrom is an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science, context hacking and political activism. monochrom has existed in this (and almost every other) form since 1993.

We recently put the entire film online!
 



"Die Gstettensaga: The Rise of Echsenfriedl" is online! Merry Christmas!

monochrom content info

A little feature-length Christmas present from monochrom and Traum & Wahnsinn.

"Die Gstettensaga: The Rise of Echsenfriedl" is finally online on Vimeo!

Enjoy!

"5 stars! Grenzfurthner's outspoken, swiftly flying little flick is the must-see indie of 2014, as far as I'm concerned. Everyone, be they intellectuals, political-types, or simply those that love great blackly comic, sensual horror, will fall madly in love with 'Die Gstettensaga: The Rise of Echsenfriedl'. See it, as soon as possible, and I promise you'll never be bored at the movies again."
(Amy R. Handler, Film Threat)

"4 stars! It's rare to hear a movie audience burst out with such delightful laughter. A brilliant creation that redefines the term 'horror.'"
(Bianca Hofbauer, Press Play)

"The best kind of low-budget filmmaking... it is like watching an absurdist play by Beckett, if Beckett decided to work on the Mad Max franchise."
(Jason Scott, Textfiles)

"Setting the film in the future forces hackers to confront a choice: Will we let ourselves and our ingenuity be recuperated by all-consuming market forces? Or will we come together - as is our potential - as the class that ends capitalism's conquest to secure all means of production?"
(Ishan Raval, 2600 Magazine)

"I'm overenthusiastic about Gstettensaga - because it distracts the Hollywood canon, because it is such a genre bender, a satiric H bomb, going for the unexpected dialectical turns of current history."
(Stefan Tiron)

"A pure nerdy underground gem between Monthy Python and the Frêres Denis."
(France Culture, Politique de l'algorithme)

"A mad post-collapse satire of information culture and tech fetishism, in a weird sort of melding of Stalker, Network, and The Bed-Sitting Room."
(Richard Kadrey)

"The old world has been reduced to ashes by the earlier beacons of hope (China stands for Maoism and Google for alternative culture). All that remains are stretches of land governed by idiocy and dialects. As Marxists, the people from Monochrom know that only the revolution can free us from capitalism. And yet the revolution is no more alive than unicorns are."
(Sebastian Vetter)

"Forces us to think deeper about the fact that much of today's romanticized revolutions often go eerily hand in hand with the development of digital capitalism. Few films today, if any, manage to do such a feat."
(Bonni Rambatan)

"Hackploitation art house... reimagining the makerspace as grindhouse ... the Gstettensaga's fascinating cinematic pastiche is more than just a firework of rhizomatic intertextuality, a symptom of the depthlessness of postmodern aesthetics or excessive enthusiasm for experimentation in the field of form."
(Stefan Lutschinger, Furtherfield)

Occupy East India Trading Company (monochrom @ TEDxVienna)

kinda interesting

For a century, the EAST INDIA COMPANY conquered, subjugated and plundered vast tracts of south Asia. The lessons of its brutal reign have never been more relevant.

THE HISTORY! THE HORROR!

The East India Company was an anomaly without a parallel in the history of the world. Most people have never even heard of it or don't know that it came to be one of the pillars of early global capitalism – and the source of horrible suffering for many, many people.

For all the power wielded today by the world’s largest corporations – whether ExxonMobil or Google – they are tame beasts compared with the ravaging territorial appetites of the militarised East India Company. Yet if history shows anything, it is that in the intimate dance between the power of the state and that of the corporation, while the latter can be regulated, it will use all the resources in its power to resist.

The East India Company no longer exists, and it has, thankfully, no exact modern equivalent. Walmart, which is the world’s largest corporation in revenue terms, does not number among its assets a fleet of nuclear submarines. Yet the East India Company – the first great multinational corporation, and the first to run amok – was the ultimate model for many of today’s joint-stock corporations.

NEVER FORGET!

monochrom's Johannes Grenzfurthner part of "Behind the Minds of Great Storytellers: A Conversation in Audio and Comics"

monochrom content info

Bonni Rambatan, the creator of "Behind the Minds of Great Storytellers" writes:

I have always loved talking to people who create stories -- those who study human interaction so deeply as to develop a strong sense of empathy for the weak. These are artists, writers, journalists, game designers, but also researchers publishing their findings, or fans writing their next piece of fic.
For lack of a better term, I call these people "storytellers". Or, if you'd prefer, narrative designers -- not in the game design sense, but in a much broader sense of helping us all shape the narratives we tell ourselves about ourselves.
Diverse as they may be storytellers are bound by one thread: A realization that meaning is malleable -- a constructed, often contested process -- followed by a curiosity of how these processes take place, and what we can do about it to make sure it doesn’t go sideways.
So I decided to start a podcast...

"Narrative Design" is what I have decided to call it. It combines the various strengths and passions of mine -- writing, speaking, having critical discussions with other intellectuals --  to generate a thread of critical discussions on culture, art, journalism, and all the various ways we make these meanings. Also? Each week, I’m going to summarize our conversation in comics. It’ll be fun.

It will air starting next week [with Johannes Grenzfurthner of monochrom].

Arse Elektronika 2015: SHOOT YOUR WORKLOAD / Sex, work and tech / Call for submissions

kinda interesting

Arse Elektronika San Francisco 2015
SHOOT YOUR WORKLOAD
SEX, WORK AND TECH.
October 2-4, 2015 in San Francisco, USA.


* How can we change work structures in the sex tech field. Is DIY really so revolutionary, or are we just tinkering around with our misery?
* Work and labor struggle and exploitation in sex tech. What to do about dildo sweatshops?
* What are the correlations of technology and sex work?
* Some research suggests that different sexual dynamics prevail in traditional breadwinner households. What sexual dynamics might proliferate in an economy of widespread automation and basic income, in a society where "having a job" becomes increasingly antiquated?
* What is emotional labor to a chatbot?
* What about the connection between 'work' and active/passive dichotomies in sex? What is the invisible work of bottoms and subs, and how might it be better recognized?
* What do you do with your sex when it stops working?
* How is silicone working out for the environment? We know silicone is inert, versatile, non-toxic, and body safe as an object but what is our collective exit strategy for the e-waste & non-biodegradable leftovers of sex toy boom? How are silicone lubricants (and other health & beauty uses) interacting with the water supply once they're washed down the drain?
* What work goes into the extraction of raw resources, such as the rubber tree plantations of South America that make our condoms and catsuits? How do you go from a rubber tree to a rubber dildo?
* How can we work out irreconcilable political differences to protect common interests for our sexual and reproductive health?
* How much sex does it take to power a light bulb? Can fucking charge a battery? Could we power electronics with our sex lives?
* What happens when your recreational sex life gets you fired? (Definitely blowing your work load!) How do you get back to work after a sexual scandal?
* How does activism focused around sexual orientation work with or against activism focused around gender identity? (e.g., In what ways has the fight for marriage equality worked for and/or against the fight for transgender rights?)
* How do we create toys that improve how sex works for folks with disabilities?
* How does your sexuality-related activism add to your emotional workload?
* What happens when your recreational sex life starts to feel like work?
* Is making sex toys a good thing in a world already full of plastic junk? Is there another way? Biodegradable sex toys?
* Can someone please do something about this FUCKING PATENT TROLL?!?!
* Is patenting sex toys a special kind of evil?
* Is any of this smart sex toy stuff leading to Rise of the Machines?
* Would Comrade Lenin approve of all of this?

Submit a talk, a performance, a game, a workshop, a machine, a system!

Deadline: August 31, 2015.
Our selection will be announced early September, 2015. (Yes, yes, we can do that fast!)

For questions, please email: office AT monochrom.at

monochrom in Boston: Context Hacking @ Boston University

monochrom content info

A talk by Johannes Grenzfurthner, monochrom.

The term "context hacking"—like its older mimetic sibling "communication guerilla"—refers to unconventional forms of communication and/or intervention in more conventional processes of communication. Context hacking is a specific style of political action drawing from a watchful view of the paradoxes and absurdities of power, turning these into the starting point for interventions by playing with representations and identities, with alienation and over-identification.
Johannes Grenzfurthner will present some projects by monochrom, a worldwide operating collective from Vienna dealing with technology, art, and philosophy that was founded in 1993. The group specializes in an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science, and political activism. Their mission is conducted everywhere, but first and foremost "in culture-archaeological digs into the seats (and pockets) of ideology and entertainment."

April 11, 2015, 6 pm at Boston University Room B50, Stone Science Auditorium, 675 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston MA, USA.




"It's a bug hunt!!" featured in 'The Art of Future Warefare'

monochrom content info

Indeed! 'The Art of Future Warefare' featured our little mash-up!

Artists Johannes Grenzfurthner and James Brothwell from monochrom have taken the iconic M41A rifle from the 1986 film Aliens and placed it in the hands of a Muppet — Kermit The Frog. The incongruous 1950s style pop art drawing is titled It's A Bug Huntfitting given a frog's natural appetite and Kermit's origins in that post-war decade. Those who have seen the film will recall the memorable line uttered by the film’s laconic Corporal Hicks, a United States Colonial Marine who sees through his commanding officer’s spin on their orders to investigate some kind of alien life form, a xenomorph. In the end, the 22nd Century’s most advanced weapons and fiercest fighters are no match for what they find.

Arse Elektronika: Sex, Tech and the Future of Screw-It-Yourself @ CMU Pittsburgh

monochrom content info
A little lecture performance by Johannes Grenzfurthner / monochrom, as part of Paolo Pedercini's class at CMU.
We may not forget that mankind is a sexual and tool-using species.
From the depiction of a vulva in a cave painting to the newest internet porno, technology and sexuality have always been closely linked. New technologies are quick to appeal to pornography consumers, and thus these customers represent a profitable market segment for the suppliers of new products and services.
Currently, all factors show that high-tech developments owe a great deal of their success to the need for further sexual stimulation. One could cite the example provided by the science-fiction concept of a full-body interface designed to produce sexual stimulation. But it isn't science fiction anymore. It's DIY.
As bio-hacking, sexually enhanced bodies, genetic utopias and plethora of gender have long been the focus of literature, science fiction and, increasingly, pornography, this year will see us explore the possibilities that fictional and authentic bodies have to offer. Our world is already way more bizarre than our ancestors could have ever imagined. But it may not be bizarre enough. "Bizarre enough for what?" -- you might ask. Bizarre enough to subvert the heterosexist matrix that is underlying our world and that we should hack and overcome for some quite pressing reasons within the next century. Don't you think, replicants?
February 24, 2015, 6:30 PM on CMU main campus in Pittsburgh/USA, College of Fine Arts building, 3rd floor, room 307.

I remember when I first rented Alien at a local video rental store. I couldn't wait to get home and finally see it. But at the point where the beast should have burst out of the little guy's breast there was nothing left to see except interference - all the freak-fans who had previously rented the movie had rewatched that very scene again and again and so often that the tape was completely buggered. Art shouldn't have a rewind button. Period.
