I was so excited to contribute an essay (my first ever!) “Embracing the Radical Uncertainty of Part-Machines” to this thought-provoking symposium in today’s LA Review of Books: Remote Intervention: A Symposium in Partnership with the Transformations of the Human Program at the Berggruen Institute.
I can’t wait to see/experience the contributions of the other participants in the symposium– artists, curators and cultural workers’ responses to the following questions:
How can we reimagine the role of artists and cultural workers given current remote, mediatized forms of production and reception, as many are living life onscreen?
Could we assemble toolkits of speculative, technologically-enabled practices; digital networks of mutual aid; or virtual para-institutions that could represent a meaningful contribution at the present conjuncture?
