Hito Steyerl & Mat Dryhurst: Where's the Public in the Metaverse?
Future of Critique, Akademie Der Kunst, 2022
Our talk at Akademie Der Kunst in Berlin concluded this massive conference of 90 speakers over 6 days between 2 national museums. The following conversation is a vigorous exchange that addresses many of the themes explored thus far: alt-media vs. institutions, new tools for online communication and organizing digital communities in an era of mounting political crisis.
It was a great honor to speak with these two artist-thinkers who have each shaped so much of my work and way of understanding of our new techno-culture. Our panel ran right up to the very last moments of the conference so we didn't take time for Q&A. Let us know your thoughts in the (preferably) YouTube comments. We want to hear from you on these topics!
Happy holidays and (soon) a New Year! I hope you are all getting to spend time with your loved ones right now. Thank you for your support and for making this such an unforgettable and extraordinary project. I look forward to continuing this work in the new year.
