Artist collective HARD-CORE is launching ASAHI 4.0 with a keynote presentation by CEO Skyler Linderberg at London’s Art Guard on September 30.
After another launch on International Worker’s Day in May this year, the project is described as a “cloaked initiative” and “curatorial robot” that uses, or rather is used by some of the most influential social media platforms, like Instagram and Twitter where Asahi 4.0 is already dispersed and networked. Giving an indication of what the keynote speech and the project focussed on providing a virtual environment for art might lead to, the press release describes its function as “interoperability, virtualisation, decentralisation, real-time capability, service orientation and modularity.”
See the ASAHI 4.0 website for details.**

It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up.
