Capture All is a schizophrenic condition for the camera. On one hand, it is a tool for the complete capture of people, be it through face recognition or be it through drones. On the other hand, it is totally useless when it comes to the evaluation the data collected – the age of the algorithm is per se invisible to it. The films and videos of transmediale 2015 illuminate the CAPTURE ALL theme from four perspectives: optimisation of the own body and communication, the Internet as a map-everything information machine, the global Moment of Fear versus the ideology of happiness, and the increase in electronic manipulation. The programme features a total of 44 works, dating from 1937 to 2014, in eight screenings and two video installations.
The eight screening programmes and seven installations featured in transmediale 2014 focus on subjects such as the internet, surveillance, and Big Data as well as electronic, digital and analogue trash. The afterglow theme is seen as gloomy visions of the afterlife of images and technologies in which naïve dreams of a digital revolution, free exchange and equal participation no longer have a place.
