Anna Khachiyan - Art in the Cloud (October 26, 2018)

"Anna Khachiyan presents a talk which functions as a companion piece to her essay Art Won’t Save Us (Open Space, 2018), in which she critiqued the self-congratulatory and ineffectual attempts at 'resistance' coming out of the art world and argued that we have more to fear from the uncontested cultural and economic hegemony of tech firms than from any sort of political administration, however unpopular and reactionary it may be. Khachiyan will pick up where she left off, examining the stakes of art’s infatuation with digital platforms and information technologies and asking what part, if any, does art have in posing a political challenge to platform capitalism?"
