James Bridle’s residency at NeMe just about a year ago did not end with his Unbuilding Citizenship talk at the NeMe Arts Centre. During his residency, he finished his book New Dark Age: Technology and the End of the Future and his investigations in Cyprus, continued with an article about the sale of passports for the Atlantic, Transnationalisms, an exhibition he curated for Aksioma, Drugo More and Furtherfield as well as a solo show entitled My delight on a shining night, about which you can read on his blog. It was a pleasure hosing him.
State Machines: Art, Work and Identity in an Age of Planetary-Scale Computation
Focusing on how such technologies impact identity and citizenship, digital labour and finance, the project joins five experienced partners Aksioma (SI), Drugo More (HR), Furtherfield (UK), Institute of Network Cultures (NL), and NeMe (CY) together with a range of artists, curators, theorists and audiences. State Machines insists on the need for new forms of expression and new artistic practices to address the most urgent questions of our time, and seeks to educate and empower the digital subjects of today to become active, engaged, and effective digital citizens of tomorrow.
