Interview with Daniel Dietrich, Rob McKinnon and Friedrich Lindenberg.


Many inspirational projects were presented here, 
such as the project by Friedrich Lindenberg and 
Stefan Wehrmeyer entitled "parlabla, who says 
what in the bundestag?" (parlabla, wer sagt was 
im bundestag?). This work represents the authors' 
visualization of the terminology used by the 
political parties (SPD, CDU/CSU, FDP, Bündis 
90/Die Grünen and Die Linke) currently present in 
the German parliament. Another project, entitled 
"Who's lobbying?" and conceived by an independent 
worker Rob McKinnon, aimed at establishing a 
connection between various types of information 
that could identify lobbyism in public 
What does it all have to do with the world of 
art? You will hear the answer from Daniel 
Dietrich, an organizer of the meeting and a 
researcher in the field of new media, at the end 
of the report.
