In long-term projects, knowbotiq research experiments with topics like publicity, urbanity, and knowledge in different forms of media. The early works of the art collective focussed on media and net specific issues. In more recent works – called Testfälle –, knowbotiq highlights singular moments of translations in real spaces. At the moment, knowbotiq works at the performative aspects of music halls, recording studios, semi-fictitious car races, web-cam stages – political landscapes in which a culture of all too known topics gets transformed into a contradictive concealment. In interaction with "aleatoric" participators and spectators, a subtle decrease, temporary forms of leaving behind and inventing existing social, cultural, and technological protocols, manuals, and classification systems of knowledge will be initiated.
