YQP is an art collective consisting of Maximilian Hoch, Florian Dohmann and Manuel Urbanke from NY & Berlin. With projects like “Datenmarkt”, “Schwarzmarkt” and “Unfinished” the group reflects on topics of our time and blends technology with interactive storytelling. Their art experiments have been featured in the press all over Germany and sparked discussion on digital privacy, the value of labour and artificial intelligence.

 
 
 

YQP – what kind of a name is that?

Manuel, Florian and Maximilian wanted to pick the most unique name for their artist collective. To achieve that they’ve programed a system that searched for all possible three-letter combinations on Google. The name that delivered the least content in the Internet was YQP.
