Testing Ground :
Talk : MAGICAL HACKERISM : ON CREOLIZING PROTOCOLS, TEKOLOGIES AND PERMACOMPUTING
On 11 May at 5pm, Art Hub Copenhagen is inviting you to a talk with artist Juan Pablo García Sossa. The talk is part of Sossa’s Testing Ground.
Attending the talk is free, but we recommend securing a seat by taking out a free ticket here.
The talk will be in English.
When receiving a Nobel Prize for Literature, Gabriel García- Márquez pronounced a discurse called The Solitude of Latin America: he would describe that we haven’t found the means yet to render our lives believable. But one could say it isn’t only Latin America, it could easily be the Solitude of the African Continent or South Asia, South East Asia or the Pacific. The Tropics are regions that have been historically exploited, undervalued and (over-)exoticed. There’s a need to redefine its understanding in endotic ways so it isn’t only a matter of ‘being-seen’ but rather ‘to-see-from’. Braiding together ecologies within the Tropical Belt represents an opportunity to break the binary thinking we live in and shift to more-than-binary permacomputing practices and consequently pluriversal understandings of the planet. JPGS will share experiences and practices performed within Futura Trōpica and their research Netting Group while we explore the notion of Magical Hackerism.
