Klee Mutations


Generative Mistranslation as Pedagogical Design Strategy

A synopsis? Tapping the subconscious: post-digital automatism, new knowledge & the fear of a superficial history.

The present day conglomerate-arms of A.I. mutate Paul Klee’s notorious Pädagogisches Skizzenbuch [Pedagogical Sketchbook, 1968] with tactical wrassling of faulty OCR and problematic binary-translations; an André Massonesque approach to post-digital bookmaking, with a performative (and post-knowledge) mapping of German economics; the birth of sociology, and the six degrees of separation within avant-garde circles of the 20th century.
