Contra-Internet: A Lecture

Contra-Internet: A Lecture

15 December 2014

Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland | Website

A lecture by artist and theoretician Zach Blas was the penultimate collateral event of the exhibition “Private Settings. Art after the Internet”.

This talk explores contemporary artistic militancies and political subversions of the Internet, which Blas conceptualizes as “contra-internet” practices. Both a critique of the internet as a neoliberal agent of control and the constitution of utopian alternatives, the contra-internet offers a different pathway for artists and activists interested in technology, politics, and social change, diverging dramatically from the ever-popular realm of post-internet art.

Organized by Natalia Sielewicz.
