Defragmentation is a term which comes from technology. More specifically, it is related to the computer data storage system and concerns the process of rearranging data in order to speed up data retrieval. Upon reflection, this type of optimization simply means a more efficient use of the potential of such a device. Potential is not just something that is planned as part of the product design, it has a maximum, finite value. It is based on specific parameters, and determined only by existing needs and inventiveness/creativity. By rearranging data on the computer disk, thereby taking into consideration the device’s environment and record history, we create new electrical states, which mean a better device and progress in relation to the previous state.

The time and space which contemporary art occupies and in which it manifests itself also has potential of its own. The artist applies his or her creativity to rearrange it into different abstract and material structures. It draws upon a limited space and time for the sole reason of causing change in a given and opportune moment. This change is not irrelevant because it signifies progress. In the context of the showcased artworks and artists, defragmentation is therefore a word which highlights the process as something which necessarily improves on the previous state, an invention, art.

Curating Your Memory

Curating Your Memory
Curating Your Memory is an evening about deleting, curating and dealing with big data on a personal scale.

V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam
The Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam

V2_: Thursday, 28 November 2013 at 8 pm


French philosopher Jacques Derrida made the claim that ‘the mutation in technology changes not simply the archiving process, but what is archivable – that is, the content of what has to be archived is changed by the technology’. What he means is that the style of the content is transformed through new processes and production. Moreover, the relation to time and space created by the fact that within mere seconds one can reach someone in every corner of the world, has also affected the content. Of course this also effects power relations, decision-making and accountability. It is generally known and accepted that archives construct a specific account of history, many things end up in an archive, but even more remains outside, to be forgotten. Questions like who is in charge of an archive, who selects, and for whom is the archive, have been plaguing archives from the beginning. One could argue that the digital accelerates this process, so how to relate to this new situation? What is the value of digital memory and how to deal with big data on a small scale? These questions form the start of an evening with three perspectives.

With Robert Sakrowski, Dragan Espenschied and Igor Štromajer, moderated by Annet Dekker.

This public event is organised by Piet Zwart Institute, Dept of Media Design – Networked & Lens-Based, and made possible with the support of Goethe Institute and V2_.

“When on a scale of 1:1, art not only describes life, it is one with it.” 



Not interested in showcasing art, 1:1 would be better called a stopover for art than an exhibition, since 1:1 art can never be wholly contained in the time frame of an event.

The focus of the 1:1 stopover is the relationship between art and life, and art and institution. When on a scale of 1:1, art not only describes life, it is one with it. This relation can be disrupted by the institution, which is often thought to divorce art from life. Not so, however, when the institution itself tries to establish a similar one-to-one relationship with art by no longer merely representing it, but instead treating it as a partner.
