As part of the Peckham space’s ambitious artists’ moving image series, Tableaux, our Friday night presentation follows a similar event called ‘The Future Is Here, It’s Just Not Evenly Distributed’, that happened at Berlin’s Import Projects in March.
This one takes aqnb‘s pending website upgrade as a starting point, where the so-called ‘Backend’ is the space behind the screen; information is organised and categorised in the Content Management System (CMS). As we collapse and restructure the existing navigation of our own website, aqnb considers this evolution, not only as an online art editorial platform, but in terms of the broader semiotic shifts that come with networked communication, and its influence on (global) community-building and identity-formation.
Artists featured in this May 6 edition include aqnb/ViC editorial video commissions with Berlin’s Claire Tolan and Anna Zett, video works from LA’s Encyclopedia Inc., a live Skype poetry reading from Philadelphia’s Ashley Angelus Ashley and a screening of work by Kimmo Modig, as well as screening of work by Johannesburg’s Cuss Group followed by a Skype Q&A with its Geneva-based co-founder Ravi Govender.
