– The Curation of the Internet

Participate here from
August 27
12:00 PM


Join radio producer and educator Areej Nur in a conversation on how every part of our lives has now been officially curated for us. The fast and never ending nature of the internet means that artists are constantly expected to respond to new ideas, new ways of working and new trends. At the same time, however, the internet has created a bubble of instant gratification and every aspect of our lives has been curated to our tastes, making it impossible to discover anything radically new or outside of our own ‘likes’.

Explore some of the ways artists are responding to these issues, whether it’s by calculated art-making designed to stay constantly on the timeline to intensive interrogations and – for some – an absolute refusal to play by the rules.

Protocol is a series of live talks grounded in the relationship between contemporary performance and the digital cultures that exist on the internet, hosted by Areej Nur as part of BLEED Echo, a public program responding to and ricocheting from the five artist projects and curatorial conversations of BLEED.
