Global Culture and Heritage
Collapse is here. Internet is dead. What would you save?
Imagine the worst: big corporations win, dictators are everywhere, all news are fake, rain forests are gone, internet infrastructure is burnt. What would you save from the collapse? This is a speculative session where participants will be asked to bring their best internet memories to create a collaborative fictional artwork, a legacy of the good old times when the web was open, accessible and fun. The more diverse the best. Please take some minutes to think in advance and bring to the session your favorite links, videos, memes, i.e. your digital heritage. I'm willing to put together resources from different backgrounds to create an exciting visual essay.
My art practice articulates technopolitics with behind the scenes narratives. As a Brazilian, I'm especially interested in Southern perspectives and how internet culture manifests outside of the center. This proposal will be part of my current research about the dark social and environmental consequences of the current networked model, under which I've created the publication 'Devastação' (https://pretti-et.al/devastacao).
