[Nettime-nl] [event] Upsetting Settings - XPUB Gradshow 2019 + Workshops 12-13.07.2019

Sorry for >< please >>


XPUB Gradshow 2019
WORM, UBIK, S/ASH GA\\ERY (Rotterdam, NL)
Boomgaardsstraat 71 Rotterdam


Upsetting Settings presents graduation projects initiated by Alexander Roidl, Alice Strete, Angeliki Diakrousi, Joca van der Horst, Natasha Berting, and Zalán Szakács. The concept of this exhibition arises from the idea of the default setting, a situation in which a specific mode of interaction is selected automatically, pre-configured to work out of the box without the need to tinker with its underlying apparatus. Every system comes with default settings predefined by its creators, and most of the time, these settings remain unchanged by us, the users of such systems. These defaults do not represent our needs but are possibly the materialisation of biases from the system's makers, from corporate or political interests, from a society at large. The projects engage with the concept of default modes and propose interventions in their core structure/source/root so as to start thinking collectively about better places from which to begin. You are invited to become root users, active listeners, smart speakers, intentional eaters, counter trolls, sensorial spectators!

Upsetting settings results from a year of research done at the Experimental Publishing (XPUB) master in Fine Art and Design program of the Piet Zwart Institute. XPUB is a two-year course that prepares students to critically engage with societal issues and social practices within the fast changing field of art, design and cultural production. More specifically, XPUB focuses on the acts of making things public and creating publics in the age of post-digital networks. XPUB’s interests in publishing are therefore twofold: first, publishing as the inquiry and participation into the technological frameworks, political context and cultural processes through which things are made public; and second, how these are, or can be, used to create publics.
