"The absence at the 2015 Venice Bienale of digital arts and internet works
says it all. Curators are afraid to admit they are clueless and continue
their ignorant attitude towards art that deals with the digital in a direct
matter (while checking their smart phone). Everyone jumps on the
‘post-digital’ bandwagon because that’s cute and safe. [...] Curators and
critics are more than happy to embrace the race, gender, even the
anthroposcene (whatever that is), but are blind for the techno-politics of
the equipment and media they are using themselves so intensely. The
contradictions are becoming absurd. Video was the last technology they had
to deal with, but then it stopped."
— Geert Lovink
