The digital culture initiative Art of Coding was presented in the Assembly 2019 festival with several presentations. In the first one Tobias ‘Melkor’ Kopka introduces the campaign in the Assembly ArtTECH seminar with Satu “Myy” Haapakoski joining the stage later.
The “Art of Coding” campaign aims to inscribe the demoscene on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity as a digital and social practice, which includes many core elements of the digital world.
Tobias Kopka is a founding member of Digitale Kultur e.V. and serves today as Festival Director of Ludicious. He tells: “Digital culture has been so omnipresent in recent decades that we are speaking of post-digital culture for some time: as digital has invaded so many spaces, that differentiating digital from non-digital culture is merely artificial today. Hence it´s only right to put the Demoscene in the center of our UNESCO initiative, as it is representing some of the earliest forms of converging digital and physical culture, still living and vibrant today.”
The Assembly festival is one of Europe’s oldest and biggest events with continuous strong demoscene involvement. The first Assembly was organized in 1992.
