At berlinerpool we will be discussing the associations of ownership through open access models, mass media, and acquisition in the digital age - specifically the ownership rights of art, intellectual property and information. As well as challenging the philosophy behind owning digital files, implications of art as data, physical to digital notions of title ownership, and the difference between establishing access and ownership in the digital information.

The exhibition will run from 11.00 until 19.00, alongside the lectures. It features the digital work Mothership, 2013 by Jonathan Monaghan.
Mothership appropriates characters and objects from science fiction, advertising, videogames and art history. Challenging the boundaries between the real, the imagined, and the virtual the piece travels a space between Rainbow Road, the landscape of German romantic painting, and the Technodrome. Absurdly pulling together disparate populist imagery that evokes value, power and technology into a haunting computer animated cinematic loop, it fuses luxury apartments and medical operating rooms, as well as the London financial center and a sacred cow.
