A Short Incomplete History of Technologies That Scale is a joint publication by Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art, Ljubljana, and transmediale in Berlin, edited by Nóra Ó Murchú and Janez Fakin Janša.
The publication reflects back the shared theme of transmediale’s 2023 festival edition a model, a map, a fiction and of Aksioma’s programme Tactics&Practice #14: Scale. The book came together from a common desire to think collectively about how measurements and maps create both politics and feelings in the world. It is an investigation undertaken in collaboration with the authors that opens up our understanding of the word scale.
The book explores how scale reconfigures relations, politics, and affects, through the writing of Asia Bazdyrieva, Anthony Downey, Chris Lee in conversation with FRAUD (Audrey Samson and Francisco Gallardo), Jussi Parikka, Laura Tripaldi and Ranjodh Singh Dhaliwal.
