DESCRIPTION

'Contemporary Art and Technology'
Lecture by Hannah Klemm (University of Chicago). Followed by a conversation with the curator of 'Gordian Conviviality', Max Schreier.

“Are we an audience for computer art? The answer is not No; it’s Yes. What we need is a computer that isn’t labor saving but which increases the work for us to do, that puns as well as Joyce (this is McLuhan’s idea) revealing bridges (this is Brown’s idea) where we thought there weren’t any, turns us (my idea) not “on” but into artists.”
- John Cage, Diary: Audience, 1966

Talk accompanies the exhibition Gordian Conviviality, featuring: Cory Arcangel, Juliette Bonneviot, Chris Coy, Frieda-Raye Green, Oliver Laric, Lindsay Lawson, Lorna Mills, Evan Roth
