Burg Hülshoff – Center for Literature | Andreas Bülhoff: “TAB TALKS”

FELLOW: Andreas Bülhoff

Media Art FellowsResearch, Workshop

Duration: December 2021 until June 2022
From December 2021 to June 2022, Andreas Bülhoff, author, scholar and media artist from Berlin, will work as a media art fellow at Burg Hülshoff – Center for Literature (CfL). Bülhoff’s academic and artistic research focuses on the influence of digitalisation on practices of text production and reception such as writing, publishing and reading. During the fellowship, Andreas Bülhoff will develop Tab Talk, a digital event format between studio visit and workshop talk. Working hypothesis: Today, literary work essentially takes place on the computer. The Tab Talk makes the invisible visible via the “share screen” function and grants unique access to the digital writing environments of authors: Never before has it been possible to see processes of creative work so closely and immersively on one’s own screen and to talk about them with the respective invited authors. The Tab Talks series will start in May 2022.


Tab Talk with Mara Genschel
14.06.   19:30-20:30 h
In the Tab Talks series, authors guide us through their digital writing environments in a mixture of studio visit and workshop discussion. For the second Tab Talk, author and performer Mara Genschel shares her screen. She is known for her permanent subversion of literary conventions and her site-specific text realisations. But even the most unconventional poetry has to go through the text editor at some point. What this means for her production of her “applied conceptualisms” she reveals in conversation with Andreas Bülhoff.

Collaborative Writing Workflows on the Computer #1
10.04.   16:00-19:00 h
How do writerly work processes take place on the computer and what influence do computer programmes have on the writing process? In a workshop by author and programmer Allison Parrish, we will write and program the possibilities of collective text production with and despite computer programs. The results can be presented in a zine

Spoken Language: German/English

Collaborative Writing Workflows on the Computer #2
26.04.   16:00-19:00 h
How do working processes of authors work on the computer and what influence do computer programmes have on the writing process? In a workshop by the programmer and media artist Brendan Howell, we discipline our text production. We log into his typewriter The Maggot. We follow the writing tasks and times that the machine gives us and from which it independently edits a collectively written text. The results can be published in a zine.

Spoken Language: German/English

Collaborative Writing Workflows on the Computer #3
09.08.   19:30 h
Today, writing takes place primarily on the computer. In the Tab Talks series, authors guide us through their digital writing environments in a mixture of studio visit and workshop discussion. They show programmes and folder structures, accumulated files and text versions – and talk about research work using open tabs in the browser.

For Tab Talks #3, author Clemens Setz shares his screen. Setz channels digital cultures like hardly anyone else and shapes them into literature in books. In conversation with our in-house artist Andreas Bülhoff, he shows exactly how this happens.

Since 2018, the Center for Literature has been developing projects between event, exhibition and dialogue as a place of artistic-practical research. The CfL transfers aesthetics and production methods of other arts (such as film or performing arts) to the field of text creation and mediation.
