A group of international speakers will gather for a symposium Owning the immaterial: art, technology and culture at Colchester’s First Site, on May 30.
As part of Aleksandra Domanovic and Simon Denny‘s respective exhibitions, Personal Effects of Kim Dotcom and From yu to me showing at the gallery until June 1, these artists’ work presents a starting point for a dialogue about ownership in the internet age.
Other speakers will include artist and writer James Bridle, writer and Goldsmiths lecturer Mark Fisher, SPACE curator Paul Pieroni, senior curator at the V&A Kieran Long, and writer Charles Graeber.
The panel of writers, artists, and academics will examine notions of property and theft, how they change between material and immaterial worlds, and how power structures shift with the flow of digital media.
