critical analysis of interpassivity and interactivity in the context of new art forms and social movements with the focus on tactical use of (new) media.
The essay covers research on open-ended forms of participatory interaction and tactical involvement of individuals / groups that do not solely operate within one discipline, but by overlapping disciplines and by constantly rethinking employed tactics, manage to transgress the presets, even if its only for a short moment. In preset regimes of coding and decoding (subjectivation), mutation is a crucial tactic in avoiding interpellation. Upheaval can be stimulated in an act of flight, a drift - a deliberate betrayal of rules and orders. Through constant actualization of connections, new energies are being released that help creative and tactical evolvement. Interpassivity as the result of a constant call for recognition from institutional and governmental systems is a tactical mutation that transgresses the limits (constitutes de-subjectivation).
