Telekommunisten is a Berlin-based arts collective whose work investigates the political economy of communication technology. Core themes include the incompatibility of capitalism with free networks and free culture, and the increasing centralization and enclosure that results, as well as the potential for distributed producers employing a collective stock of productive assets to provide an alternative economic basis for a free society. Their often performative, interactive practice employs satire and humor, emphasizing social relations and human interaction. Telekommunisten have exhibited and performed widely including at the transmediale, Berlin; New Babylon, Athens; Amaze, Johannesburg; Malaupixel, Paris; Critical Alternatives, Aarhus; Art A-Hack, NYC, and Young Leaders Forum, Beijing.
