SUSTAINING TECHNOLOGICAL OPTIMISM OR APPROXIMATING ALTERNATIVES?
Chisenhale Gallery, London

Organised by Chisenhale’s Asymmetry Curatorial Writing Fellow Hang Li, artists Raqs Media Collective, curator and educator Shama Khanna, and scholar, performer and curator Donatella Della Ratta discuss the possibilities of online space to re-imagine group deliberation and notions of community.
The discussion calls into question technological optimism and solutionism permitting online curating by reclaiming the politicality of working in tandem with technologies. The event is part of Hang's Fellowship research project 'Remote Affinity: Working Together From a Distance'.
