Nice review on Flash Art magazine


news-flash-art-eva-and-franco-mattes-at-carroll-fletcher

Nice review of our show at Carroll/Fletcher on Flash Art, by Jeppe Ugelvig. “The limited physical strain demanded from the viewer due to the intentionally awkward placement of monitors in the space felt mostly like a mockery of the very real hardship digital workers undergo daily”. Am not quite sure if this is good or bad, but that doesn’t make it less interesting.

INFORMATION book is out


news book information

Information, edited by Sarah Cook, is out: “This anthology provides the first art-historical reassessment of information-based art in relation to data structures and exhibition curation.” It’s part of Whitechapel’s Documents of Contemporary Art, and it features a great essay by Marina Gržinić on our work Life Sharing.

Raw data is now the stuff of life – and of art, as this impressive compendium makes plain. But data is never simply dematerialized or pure; it is always tethered to modes of transmission, storage and embodiment, and the artists and artworks highlighted here thrillingly explore the things and networks and media that have changed how we see and what we know in the age of information. – Michelle Kuo, Editor in Chief, Artforum

 

 

 

 

Video of ICA talk


Here’s the video of the talk with Jesse Darling and Ben Vickers at ICA, London: “Invisibility & overshare, exhibitionism & withdrawal, anonymity & identity services, content moderation & censorship, the nothing, the horror…”
