    About the Techno Viking

    The Techno Viking is a tall, muscular, charismatic, intimidating German man in his 30ies, that danced in front of the camera at the Fuckparade in Berlin in 2000. The Fuckparade emerged as a reaction to the music restriction (e.g. the exclusion of other techno styles as Gabber, Speedcore, Hardcore Techno or Punk music) of the Berlin Love Parade and its increasing commercialization, as well as a public demonstration against the shut down of the famous techno club “Bunker,” (which serves as a home for a private art collection today.)

    The Techno Viking became famous firstly through the “Kneecam” video. A girl with heavy blue dyed hair is dancing to the rough techno beats, while a rather unruly looking guy, crashes unfriendly into her. That accident is causing the Techno Viking to demonstrate his physical power. He snatches the guy’s arms and pushes him back from where he came dancing from. Pointing straight at another man and dominating him with his fiercely glance the Techno Viking produces an aura of fear, which brings the man to leave the situation. Only that incident enables the Techno Viking finally enough space to start dancing freely. His dance moves are wild and expressively but perfect in form. Soon he seems like the king of the street, having even fans, serving as “pop servants,” supplying him with water bottles.

    At You Tube the fascination with the Techno Viking is expressed in several statements. One of the most famous lines started to reappear with the countless remakes of the “original” footage itself: “The Techno Viking doesn’t dance to the music, but the music dances to the Techno Viking.

    The Technoviking Trial

    Around christmas 2009 the technoviking video’s main protagonist sent a lawyer to the filmmaker in order to stop all further publication of his film “Kneecam No.1”. He claimed that the video was produced, published and used for merchandising without his consent and that he would be loosing jobs because of the Technoviking’s fame and on top of that being approached by political right wing oriented people who also abuse his image.

    At that time the clip was already out of the filmmakers control for years. It existed with hundreds of copies all over the web. It is true that within 2 years until the plaintiff send his 1st lawyer to the filmmaker, the artist had earned in total around 10000 Euro in connection with the meme’s popularity.

    The amount resulted basically from YouTube Advertisements and to a small part from TV-licenses and T-shirts sales. From the beginning of the negotiations the filmmaker offered to share all profits made connected to the technoviking meme. He further expressed to be open to discuss together future options on how to market the meme’s success. There have been many requests from event and production companies that were interested in the Technoviking but nobody was able to find the real person behind, not even the filmmaker himself. In the beginning of 2010 Fritsch stopped all commercial activities that were connected to the original video or the plaintiff’s image, he blocked the original video on YouTube with annotations and limited the use of images that show the real persona to an only internal and offline use within the Technoviking archive. Still it was not possible to find a compromise outside court and in early 2010 the video’s protagonist announced that he would take the case to court. Nothing happened for almost three years until at the end of 2012 the plaintiff finally suit the film maker, short before the case would have been expired. He also demanded financial compensation.The trial began in the middle of january 2013 in Berlin. The judges suggested a settlement between the two parties that was in favor of the plaintiff but he didn’t accepted. End of May 2013 the 3 judges at Berliner Landgericht pronounced a judgement. As a result it will not be allowed anymore to show the original video as long as it is possible to identify the protagonist. The filmmaker Matthias Fritsch is facing a fee up to 250000 Euro or up to 6 months of jail time in case of violating the judgement. Additional the filmmaker has to pay the money that he had earned completely to the plaintiff. The judges denied the plaintiff any further financial compensation for personal suffering and concluded that he would be after the money and by waiting for almost 3 years not consequent trying to solve his argued problems.

    At the End of July the plaintiff appealed to the judgement and takes the trial a step further to Kammergericht Berlin which is one level below the constitutional court in Germany.

    TECHNOVIKING ARCHIVE

    Archive for research on the Technoviking Meme, 2000-2013

    Matthias Fritsch researched the internet history of his video Kneecam No.1 aka Technoviking from it’s production until it became popular a popular Internet Meme with around 40 million registered and documented clicks on the internet and more than four thousand directly related video responses on YouTube. Today the archive contains more than 1000 single units and 10 GB of data in form of images, emails, blogs, forum discussions and a selection of video responses which are categorized to show the different attempts of the Web 2.0’s recycling culture. Because of an ongoing trial (personality rights vs freedom of art) neither the original video nor the full archive are available for public anymore.

    The less risky examples from the archive are published in form of mashups or installations of the archive and lectures where Fritsch also shows some of the most interesting video responses. The artist illustrates new ways of production and distribution within user generated networks. From his experiences on the Technoviking Phenomenon Fritsch developed his following Work Music from the Masses which is ongoing since 2008.

    Ever since the attention on the video and it’s versions is high up and hundreds of remix versions and responses to the video are still being published in the internet. Fans continue to imitate the video’s dramaturgy and re-enacted it in their homes, in clubs or on the streets. A selection of transformations and re-enactments is published on the website Technoviking.tv. For educational purposes Fritsch is touring to festivals and conferences in order to present his research on the meme and to talk about the internet’s Web 2.0 culture.
