Topologies of the Real: Techne Shenzen

ArchaeaBot is featured in “Topologies of the Real: Techne Shenzen” at the Shenzhen Museum of Contemporary Art and Urban Planning (MoCAUP).

Starts: 1st May 2023
Ends: 27th July 2023

Topologies of the Real is conceived as a three-part exhibition under the rubrics of “Reality Interrupted,” “Datumsoria: The Return of the Real,” and “Multiverse: Ecology without Nature.” ZKM’s Art in Motion: Masterpieces with and through Media further extends the media-historical fundamentals of “Reality Interrupted.” The exhibition examines the trajectories of how artistic imagination has challenged and redefined the notion of reality under the technological construct of spacetime which has manifestly accelerated since the mid-twentieth century and how such artistic endeavors have brought to light the political, economic and cultural conundrums and creative potentialities implicated by a flattened and instantaneous digital contemporary. Artworks conceived and produced during the past two years amidst the harrowed existence will be included to bring to the fore a new exigency that is catastrophically larger than human capacity while at the same time prompting redeeming hopes for the solidarity of humans and things in a symbiotic worldmaking.
