Robopoetics – a new web-based exhibition looking at digital poetics

14.01.2019

Robopoetics is a web-based exhibition that was supported by Culture and Art Programme in 2016. The project calls attention to a form of contemporary digital poetics developed out of the possibilities of computational and web-based mediums and takes place at the http:// exhibition space – http://robopoetics.com.

The exhibition presents commissioned artworks from six contemporary artists, including Annabell Lee Chin (SE), Victoria Durnak (NO), Caspar Forsberg (SE), Kirke Meng (DK), Audun Mortensen (NO) and Carl-Johan Rosén (SE).

The project initiator artist and curator Roger von Reybekiel writes that the exhibition aims to shed light on the infrastructure and ideology of contemporary information technology from media archaeological and post-digital perspectives through play, imagination and experimentation.

The project engages in theoretical discussions about the structure of contemporary information technology, technization, monopolisation, surveillance and other important, sometimes overlooked issues that we face in our everyday life.

According to von Reybekiel, the dominant global Internet companies could be said to have been handed responsibility for our shared cultural heritage. Therefore, independent, non-profit, web-based exhibitions, platforms and meeting spaces for the production, distribution and contemplation of culture are much needed. Robopoetics is one such initiative.
