Curating and Making Art that Challenges Extractive Digital Systems.

Marc Garrett presents at NeMe Arts Centre, Limassol, Cyprus.

Elite groups constantly channel our social interactions, cultural identities, and interests on their behalf. The narratives and stories of who we are have become distorted, filtered, and engineered following the needs of marketing companies, accepted historical canons, mainstream news media, the military, numerous corporations, and nation-states. Truth, like everything else, is a commodity; it is not a right. The highest bidder owns truth and fact; if you can afford it, you can create, alter and sell mass misinformation to millions.

Marc discusses how Furtherfield deals with asking important questions about social change, hierarchy and ecology when curating art that uses technology.

Wishing you well
