Berlin: In(flux) is a film an lecture series at San Francisco Art Institute that explores immigrant and refugee experiences in Berlin. It is organized by Tamara Loewenstein in tandem with Berlin Exhibition Project.
The (German-language) thesis is titled “Feedback Machines. Cybernetics and Interaction” and was supervised by Georg Trogemann and Frieder Nake. It deals with cybernetics and human-computer interaction, reconstructing the history of interactivity as the history of cybernetics while using cybernetic thought for understanding interaction.
