As part of an ongoing collaboration between Aksioma in Ljubljana and NeMe, Sanela Jahić had a research residency with us in order to expand her inquiry into the future of labour conditions. Her talk at the NeMe Arts Centre, explored her past work and her current research.
The relations between machines and humans is one of the constants in SanelaJahić‘s work. Her artistic production places the research of complex relations between technology and the social, individuals and their identity directly into the context of the critique of capitalist relations of production. The current wave of pervasive automation and technologies of prediction is radically transforming and reorganising all forms of labour.
As the delegation of tasks to machines becomes widespread, Sanela Jahić‘s starting position in her latest project is to explore the possibility of a machine-conceived exhibition.
Sanela Jahić is an intermedia artist, who constructs technologically supported kinetic objects and installations. Her artistic practice often involves collaboration with specialists for mechanical engineering, automation, software and electronics.
