Systems of prediction boom in times of political uncertainty and neo-liberal efficiency optimisation, presenting a means of determining future developments. Digitalisation, data mining and processes accelerating in the direction of singularity promise a more efficient, secure future through quantification, including calculation and forecast systems. The works shown in the exhibition examine this constantly shifting zone between self-determination and external domination, to make visible the associated systems of power and disempowerment. To what extent are forecasts fetishised and instrumentalised, predictability invoked and what consequences are to be expected, when regimes of prediction determine our lives, when we become datasets in an algorithmically pre-emptive determined system? On the 7th of June opening of the group show Regime der Vorhersage at Galerie Weisser Elefant, in Berlin with work by Bernd Hopfengärtner & Ludwig Zeller, Esther Hovers, Nikolaus Gansterer, llona Gaynor, Noriko Okaku, Ulrich Nausner, Arnold Reinthaler, Sebastian Schmieg & Silvio Lorusso, Lina Theodorou, Pinar Yoldas. Curated by Sabine Winkler.
