Go Rando will be a part of Sortir du Désenchantement du Numérique (Escaping the Digital Unease) at Espace Multimédia Gantner in Bourogne, France. This next iteration—of an exhibition that last showed at Kunsthaus Langenthal in Switzerland—is curated by Raffael Dörig, Domenico Quaranta, and Fabio Paris. According to the curators:
While we’re using products by Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook and find them useful and indispensable, we’ve become aware of the dominance of such big players. Their services form our thoughts and commodify the ideas of friendship and exchange. We do not surf the wild web anymore, but are fed with feeds, receiving more and more of the same, based on algorithmic extrapolations of our preferences. Since the beginning of the web, artists have built their own spaces and channels there. They have created artworks that react to commodification and restrictions in a critical way. The exhibition presents these alternatives.
The exhibition opens on 13 October and is up through 19 January 2018.
