Move and get shot: surveillance through social networks along the US-Mexico border
“AZ: move and get shot” and “The Texas Border” are two net based artworks which explore the phenomenon of surveillance on the internet carried out by civilians on the border between Mexico and the US. Many of these online platforms appeared during the rise of the social networking service and its structure was adopted as a cheaper and more efficient alternative way to monitor the border. Thus, the recreational activity became a tool for militarizing the civil society. This talk will expose the research process behind the two artworks and will analyze the evolution of some of these net based platforms from its inception to the present.

Mayhem in Mahwah. The Case of the Flash Crash; or, Forensic Reperformance In Deep Time
Financial algorithms create a space of presence whose transaction speed transcends human perception. At this very moment, the notion of the present as the time of assembly, decision-making and common action capsizes, engulfed by an automated sea of minute futures.
Under the regime of informational capitalism, a paradoxical situation accrues from proprietary transaction spaces. The future as the horizon of time to come is superseded by a technologically captured time whose horizon collapses into the very present moment. Extended and at the same time withdrawn by a new mode of enclosure – enforced by the black box regime of algorithmic trading – the present veers from contingent potential to a past of its own becoming. When even the spectacle of mediated presence evaporates into the algorithmic logistics of myriad concealed derivative evaluations and thus a new breed of cybernetic predication machines colonize bio-political power regimes, what does this signify for the forensics of the future forum?
A text version of this talk will be published in: FORENSIS: The Architecture of Public Truth, Sternberg Press, 2014.
Gerald Nestler’s work deals with a specific agglomeration commonly known as finance and its ideological, methodological and fictive traits. His practice and research form a speculative laboratory combining theory with performance, installation, video, and speech to create experimental situations in which the notion of a contingent presence resists and counters derivative futures.
Nestler graduated from the Academy of fine arts Vienna in 1992. From 1994-1997, he undertook field work as broker and trader. He received an Austrian State Scholarship for Visual Art in 2003 and published Yx . fluid taxonomies—enlitened elevation—voided dimensions—human derivatives—vibrations in hyperreal econociety with Schlebrügge Editors, Vienna in 2007. He co-edited the issues 200 and 201 of Kunstforum International on art and economy with Dieter Buchhart. Nestler teaches at Webster University Vienna and is a practice-based PhD candidate at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths College, University of London.
