Welcome to dwhX
dwhX is a new post-digital platform conceived by das weisse haus (dwh) to critically explore the increasing entanglements between the digital and analogue worlds. A hybrid organism with changing rhythms and intensities, dwhX hosts a range of different programs with varying lifetimes. Interdependent with dwh’s physical exhibition space and its studio and residency program studio das weisse haus, dwhX confidently positions itself as a necessarily incomplete and continuously learning entity. Born out of discussions and conversations with a plural cohort of artists, designers, developers, curators, theoreticians, hackers, gamers, lovers and opponents of the digital and others, it seeks to continue its journey with many more contributors.
The inaugural program unfolds along three different strands: an online magazine, a new networking scheme for artists and curators called Chat Set, and the feature Exhibition Expanded presenting artistic contributions that relate to physical exhibitions at das weisse haus in Vienna, Austria. Building on this, more program categories will follow, including post-digital commissions, a fellowship, online studios and a garden of sorts – next to many more formats that are still cooking in our community kitchen.
We warmly invite you to dwell, move around and watch, listen, read or contemplate in your own time. In order to remind you that sleep is essential though, dwhX will adjust its brightness at nighttime. If you have any questions, concerns or feedback for us, please do get in touch with us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
