Reflexive Ecologies of Post-Internet ArtFebruary 2018
Perpetual connectivity and the incorporation of the internet into the habits of daily life, the intercession of social media in personal communications as well as in interactions with the natural world constitute critical elements of post-internet art practice. This seminar investigates the reflexivity of such approaches in relation to the environmental aspects of the underlying infrastructure, ecological footprint and conflicting materiality of online transactions. How does contemporary art impact a post-internet ecology that confronts the wastefulness of built-in obsolescence and challenges the transformation of the internet into a monetised space of surveillance and manipulation? What are the prospects for the emergence of post-human, entangled and non-dystopian relations between people, species and the natural world?
Experimental Reading Room @ ICA London
The Experimental Reading Room is a three-day participatory seminar space, led by The Translocal Institute for Contemporary Art. As part of In formation's orientation towards the future and new forms of commonality, the series aims to create a space to interact, experiment, learn and dream towards ecological awareness in contemporary art and society.
Rather than mere passive bystanders to history, plants act as agents, mediating relations both among people and between people and their environments, knowledge, markets, and politics, as well as serving as go betweens in non-human spheres. This conference explores the response of artists, writers and theorists to manifestations of plant agency considered through vegetal non-cognitive thought and non-representational memory, plant ethics and rights, and the relationship of humans and plants in the Anthropocene.
