map and fold icons

// EN
In functional programming, fold refers to a family of higher-order functions that analyze a recursive structure through use of a given combining operation, recombine the results of recursively processing its constituent parts, building up a return value. Map represents an associative abstract data type composed of a collection of key, value pairs. This is exactly what is happening with the cultural scene at the very moment. We systematically and methodically change concepts, mix online and offline life and try to offer an optimal solution for events and cultural enjoyment for all participants. We present interactive art, music & design – for visitors and online guests with artists* on site and around the world. This project receives state funding.

There are limited tickets for the Schlachthaus and unlimited online access.

In der funktionalen Programmierung bezieht sich Faltung auf eine Familie von Funktionen höherer Ordnung, die eine rekursive Struktur durch Verwendung einer gegebenen Kombinationsoperation analysieren, die Ergebnisse der rekursiven Verarbeitung ihrer Bestandteile rekombinieren und einen Rückgabewert aufbauen. Map stellt einen assoziativ-abstrakten Datentyp dar, der sich aus einer Sammlung von Schlüssel-Werte-Paaren zusammensetzt. Das ist genau das, was im Moment in der Kulturszene geschehen muss: Wir verändern systematisch und methodisch Konzepte, vermischen Online- und Offline-Leben und versuchen, eine optimale Lösung für Veranstaltungen und Kulturgenuss für alle Beteiligten anzubieten. Wir präsentieren interaktive Kunst, Musik & Design – für Besucher und Online-Gäste mit Künstler*innen vor Ort und in aller Welt. Dieses Projekt erhält Landeszuwendungen.

His compositions and performances are examples of sound poetry, making use of words and phonetic snippets as well as clicks, hisses, and other vocal manipulations. He works as a solo performer, in collaboration with avant-garde musicians such as John Tchicai, Tristan Honsiger, and Mats Gustafsson, and with his own ensembles Splinks and BRAAXTAAL. His live performances involve humor and improvisation, and are occasionally received poorly by audiences, as when he was booked as an opener for punk rock band The Stranglers early in the 1980s.

das Shining
Eric Medine

## Dähn/Maos
The two musicians have just released a solo album each. Now they are back in the studio working on a duo album. Electric cello and electric guitar, lots of effects, loops and grooves.
They are going to present brand new tracks and experimental collages.

## das Shining
das Shining collective is a group of interdisciplinary media and computer experts who studied media informatics together in Tübingen before expanding their expertise in other academic fields. The group is always looking for new opportunities to let its creativity run free in a challenging way.

## Kitz
KITZ uses a deceptively simple combination of gritty electronic sounds and vintage- sounding synth lines paired with haunting vocal melodies to create an evocative journey through light and dark. 
Kitz (Anna Illenberger)has made herself a name in recent years as a vocalist in the experimental pop field in Stuttgart,Germany.
KiTZ acts within a musical genre that is constantly reinventing itself, innovating, and mixing spaces with other types of arts, its search has become an exploration, it likes to develop spaces around each song, something that leaves as a result what she calls an „organic vibration“.
With KiTZ, Anna Illenberger plays a one woman show. Rhythms, samples and bass that she triggers live to an „organic electronic experience“. She likes to keep things minimal and turns her voice to the center of attention in this project, singing songs about self-empowerment, courage, authenticity and expressing „difficult“ moments such as self-doubt or fear.

## Eric Medine
is an artist and curator that builds interactive video installations designed to turn everyday activities into mysterious quests. He has shown work in galleries and museums such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), xm:lab, KunstlerHaus, and the Generate festival in Germany, the Chicago Motion Graphics Festival, Fête de la Lumière in France, and the LPM festival in Rome and Mexico City.
