Today one may complain that life has been reduced to points in a matrix of relations—cities, territories, and historical narratives prematurely refined into categories of known and unknown, real and virtual, concrete and abstract space. And yet, when we need to locate a crucial resource (or ourselves, for that matter) who can afford not to search the grid for what everybody knows to be there?—the Italian restaurant, the emergency room, the ancestor, the terrorist. This is not simply about seeing; by definition, navigation organizes timescales and orders of magnitude that cannot be visualized simultaneously. Furthermore, in attempting to map and ...

The first issue of the journal was dedicated to repositioning art in the landscape of reason. This issue is focused on the fabric of reason itself, and to the ways in which it is currently altered by the emergence of artificial intelligence. While the capacities of thought are being externalized in machines that increasingly mirror human intelligence, the question of the technical artifactuality of mind and its political ramifications becomes particularly pressing. For us, far from being limited to the computational instantiation of intelligence, understanding the politics of these developments in artificialintelligence requires acknowledging that mind has always been artifactual. Site 1: Logic Gate, the Politics ...

This issue, produced in the framework of Okayama Art Summit 2019 (“IF THE SNAKE”, curated by Pierre Huyghe, September 27 – November 24 2019, Japan), focuses on the concrete conditions of embodied thought. From the assessment of historical attempts at grounding critique in the body to the exploration of contemporary issues surrounding situated knowledge, from the analysis of the aesthetic and political economy at play in the encounter with advanced human-like sex robotics to the ways in which algorithms are transforming our sense of intimate relationships, and from the ways in which cruising practices subvert dominant discourses on architecture and ...

MoneyLab is a network of artists, activists, and geeks experimenting with forms of financial democratization. Entering the 10th year of the global financial crisis, it still remains a difficult yet crucial task to distinguish old wine from its fancy new bottles. The MoneyLab network questions persistent beliefs, from Calvinist austerity, growth, and up-scaling, to trustless, automated decision making and (anarcho-)capitalist dreams of cybercurrencies and blockchained solutionism. We consider experiments with digital coops, internet-based payment and network-based revenue models as spaces of political imagination, with an equally important aesthetic program. In this second MoneyLab Reader the network delves into topics like the financialization ...

We are back with original Xenofeminist Patricia Reed and speculative computer scientist Anil Bawa-Cavia to discuss their text ‘Site as Procedure as Interaction’. We confront (with optimism? openness?) this second wave of abject worldings from the poor grasp of reality of GPT-3 to the U.K. outcry with A-levels algorithm debacle.

Hans Ulrich Obrist Interview with David Deutsch HUO: Your book, The Fabric of Reality [1997], had a real in uence on the art and architecture elds. Philippe Parreno wants to ask you this question: “Can reality be produced?” DD: I think the deepest answer is that we don’t know yet but I believe the best answer available is “no ” The whole of reality including the multiverse and all the “production”—all the creation—that has happened and will ever happen within the multiverse is in some sense already there The trouble is that that answer doesn’t explain the fact that there is a vital ...
