Woodstone Kugelblitz in collab with @rra : "On the weekend of the 23rd of November in collaboration with Woodstone Kugelblitz varia organises a convivial book sprint to make a Really Useful Knowledge Cookbook. A manual to be more an actor and less a consumer in your day to day affairs. The cookbook brings together recipes and instructions from the practice and theory of daily life.

For this cookbook we are still looking for recipes! This is DIY-advice, tips and tricks that should become part of this recipe book. We already have recipes about raising toddlers without diapers, blocking online advertising and making of hot sauce based on lactic fermentation!

~~~ Please submit your recipes by mail or post by the 22nd of November. ~~~

You can also drop by during the weekend to say hi, browse the archive of l'intolerant, see the collection of printing equipment, join for dinner (pls rsvp if you do the latter!) or join us during the concert.

The concert is on the evening of saturday the 24th of november (20:00 - 23:00) with improv music by Bohman Family and no-wave reli-pop by Cantos Deus:

Pushing The Score met De Player

Deze avond gaat over het archiveren van het project 'Pushing the Score'. Dit initiatief over de hedendaagse betekenis van de 'grafische score' is de afgelopen 2-3 jaar door De Player uitgevoerd. Zij heeft aan Varia gevraagd om een contextuele en technische 'omgeving' op te zetten die dienst kan doen als een online archiefuitgave van het project. Varia zal deze aanpak toelichten, tijdens een avond met verschillende presentaties.

Valentina Vuksic zal een liveset spelen. Zij benadert computers met 'transducers' die elektromagnetische straling in geluid transformeren via choreografisch opstellingen. De 'runtime' van uitgevoerde software wordt geënsceneerd voor een publiek om een akoestische ervaring te bieden.

Over Pushing Scores

Wat zijn de mogelijkheden van grafische partituren, in een tijd waarin grafische notatie meestal als een 'tekening' wordt gezien en als een soort bladmuziek dienst doet?

In een poging om dit concept te herdefiniëren, stelde DE PLAYER een programma samen waarvoor artiesten, muzikanten en theoretici werden uitgenodigd. Het collectieve doel is om nieuwe audiovisuele en media-technische vormen van grafische notatie te ontwikkelen en te presenteren door middel van artistiek onderzoek.

De meest eigentijdse en innovatieve grafische notatiepraktijken op het gebied van muziek, geluidskunst, performancekunst, e-cultuur, nieuwe mediakunst, grafisch ontwerp en mediaontwerp introduceerde De Player zo aan een nationaal en internationaal publiek.

Meer programma wordt later aangekondigd!

Datum: Donderdag, 29 November 2018
Deur: 20:00
Start: 20:30
Entree: 5 euro

Starting today, we'll use our forum at socialhub.network/c/funkwhale for for most of the community and project discussions, instead of Gitlab.

We learned that Gitlab (and developper-centric) platform are not a great when it comes to involve everyone.

Take a look at socialhub.network/t/rebooting- to get context on this decision and join the discussion!

Special thanks to @Troll (for the content) and @prismo for the hosting!

Looking Back - Varia Anniversary

Het is algemeen bekend dat alles wat vooruit gaat, op een dag ook weer achterom moet kijken. Varia is zich bewust van deze waarheid als een koe en daarom vieren we volgende week gezamelijk de eerste verjaardag van ons verblijf aan de Gouwstraat. Wees welkom en geniet net als ons van de exclusieve varia-drankjes en nostalgische herinneringen aan Varia's verleden en de toekomst! Dankzij de DJ-vaardigheden van Newk en Shiyun Deng en de zeldzame aanwezigheid van de varia karaoke-set, zal dit zeker een nacht zijn die iedereen zal helpen herinneren!

Date: Vrijdag, 11 November 2018

This Sunday @ccl and i are giving a workshop during the Impakt Festival around ORES, Wikipedia's machine learning service. You are all very welcome to join us!

The theme of this year's Impakt festival is post-truth, fake news and algorithmic superstructures.
We will speak about the position of Wikipedia in the wake of the current media climate and fake news, where we find ourselves suddenly turning to Wikipedia as a reliable source of information.

During the workshop we will dive into the mechanisms that support Wikipedia to be regarded as such, by looking at the machine learning service ORES that Wikipedia uses against vandalism.

We will discuss examples of how Wikipedia struggles with vandalism, look into the feminist inspirations of the ORES project, and do a writing exercise together to explore our understanding of the the 'good faith' and 'damaging' parameters that are used to prevent vandalism but not scare away new editors.

You can subscribe by writing to: trust {AT} impakt.nl

Sunday 28th of October
13:30h to 15:30h

Dear all,

„OH BOY, IT’S A COMPUTER GRRRL!“ - yes, and they are many! If you are in town, or near (Dortmund, the Ruhr area, or Cologne, Duesseldorf, or even Frankfurt Airport, West Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands ;-), between 27 October 2018 and 24 February 2019, drop in and check out our new exhibition!

The COMPUTER GRRRLS would love to see you.

Tonight in Varia Thomas Walskaar hosts the 3rd edition of *Century 21 Calling*, this time around satellite communications 🌠.

〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️

During our third screening of Century 21 Calling, we will be taking a look at the development of satellite communications. From the shiny orbs of the 1950s to our present day SATCOM systems.

Later in the evening you can join mmths on a trip through the radio spectrum, to listen to the satellite pirates in GEO Oribt and drown in the noise of the static and signals of ghost satellites.

In a series of screenings called “Century 21 Calling” we will have a look at archival industrial films, corporate infomercials, tv reports and historical documentary of yesterday that shaped the imagination of tomorrow and we hold it up to the light of the present.
