GHOSTS: Technologies/Subjectivities

GHOSTS: Technologies/Subjectivities (15 Jan 2015)

UAL Joint Chair of Black Art and Design Professor Paul Goodwin in conversation with artist and academic Dr Keith Piper (Middlesex University) and artist and former Head of New Media at Institute of International Visual Arts Gary Stewart. 

Part of the GHOSTS programme of exhibitions and events, this discussion traced an alternative genealogy of contemporary artist’s exploration of technology and techno-culture in Britain through the practices of two pioneers in the field of new media art: Keith Piper and Gary Stewart.

The discussion unpacks critical notions such as ‘digital diasporas’ while discussing the impact of seminal exhibitions and projects such Keith Piper’s ‘Relocating the Remains’ (1997) and Gary Stewart’s ‘Liminal: A Question of Position’ (2009).
