Zach Blas is presenting solo exhibition Contra-Internet at London’s Gasworks, opening September 21 and running to December 10.

A newly commissioned queer science fiction film installation ‘Jubilee 2033’ will be premiered, as well as works in animation, vinyl text and other moving image and “confronts the growing hegemony of the internet.” The opening night will also feature a talk/tour by Blas.

The exhibition dives into the “accelerated capitalism, surveillance and control” that moves throughout the contemporary internet, and approaches science fiction and technology through a queer and feminist lens to sift through the past, present and future. Set in Silicon Valley in 2033, the work (and title) is a play off of Derek Jarman’s seminal queer film Jubilee (1973).
