Contra-Internet A lecture by Zach Blas | Discussion
A lecture by artist and theoretician Zach Blas (Univeristy of Buffalo) was the penultimate collateral event of the exhibition "Private Settings. Art after the Internet".
This talk explorea 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.
