We are excited to announce the release of our publication produced in conjunction with Mohammad Salemy’s installation at the 11th Gwangju Biennale 2016.

The book expands on the idea of machinic vision, featuring short texts by a range of thinkers, philosophers and scholars who were asked to contemplate about the possibilities and limitation of a world understood and interpreted by algorithmically-driven forms of artificial intelligence. Our increasing reliance on computation requires us to come up with new ways of thinking about automation and its relationship to the politics of knowledge and our knowledge of politics.

TEXTS BY Jason Adams / Kate Armstrong / Elie Ayache / Benjamin Bratton / Clint Burnham / Lou Cantor / Manuel Correa / Alexander Galloway /Leo Goldsmith / Simón Isaza / Victoria Ivanova / Vaclav Janoscik / Ed Keller / Diana Khamis / Jessica Law / Siwin Lo / Nicola Masciandaro / Gean Moreno / Benjamin Noys / Jeff O’brien / Matteo Pasquinelli / David Roden / Judith Rodenbeck / Rory Rowan / Daniel Sacilotto / Samuel Sackeroff / T’ai Smith / Nick Srnicek / Kate Steinmann / Steven Warrick / Peter Wolfendale

Superconversation 57: Andrey Gorokhov responds to Oleksiy Radynski,“The Arts for the Global Conflict: A 2115 Report”

The joy of time travel isn’t to see how the world or people will look at a very distant point in time, but to find that there some concepts, pictures, artifacts, lifehacks, etc, that derive exclusively from one’s own era. Yet, what’s found is actually brought by the time traveler himself in order to save today’s artifacts and circumstances from decay, or — even better — from critique and close scrutiny . . . the time traveler becomes a smuggler: in order to stop something from being questioned, he smuggles it into the distant future, since no one is yet there to have any doubts about the many issues, ideas and controversies of our highly nontransparent age. It appears therefore, as though the real achievement of the future — its comparative advantage — is the absence of doubts, cognitive disorders, paradoxes and dissonances. There are no double binds in the future! In the future everybody cares for art and artists and we don’t even need to ask ‘why?’ . . . In the future, such questions, as well as many others, no longer exist . . .
