NOORDKAAP TAXI Taxi Lectures - „Cologne, What is Your Mother’s Maiden Name?“ & „404 Schrott aller Art“


Noordkaap presents a lecture by the artist & producer Max Dovey on psychometric science and digital art, with a special focus on Agorama. Dovey is co-founder of this East-London-based collective of technologists who critically explore digital culture. He will also introduce his taxi project that evolved in collaboration with participants of the Cologne Youth Academy that starts on the 8th of June, “Cologne, What is Your Mother’s Maiden Name?”

His lecture will be followed by a lecture performance of the Dutch duo Jodi.
For the performance, Jodi will focus on the car as a long-standing (and long-moving) object of its on- and offline work.
