Under An Alias is the new big fairytale of nerdworking, a digital historical expression. This time our story takes place in a small German town; Weimar. The effect of a small town with the population of 65,000 people on the world concerns all of us, a city where the majority of its income is from culture. Weimar is a meeting and creation point for eminent intellectuals of our current times. This town, where Goethe wrote his masterpieces, where the music of Franz Liszt could be heard. This is where its republic of Germany was founded in 1919, whose legacy was subsequently marred by the establishment of a Nazi concentration camp in 1937. Weimar, a city that currently merges art and architecture in Bauhaus university, has many untold stories.
Although difficult, telling Weimar’s story was incredibly educational for an Istanbul based group of artists. It gave an opportunity for nerdworking illustrate a story from another perspective. Dozens of people spent long hours immersing themselves the rich cultural background, whilst taking into consideration the opinions of previous researchers. Under An Alias, created by collaboration of international artists and working completely in cyberspace, made its debut as the main act of the Genius Loci Festival.
