This exhibition explores the ever-shifting relationship between art, technology and subjectivity in an age of increasing migration and global diaspora communities. In what ways are the practices of art and technology being transformed by their mutual interaction? How are artists deploying technologies of reproduction to investigate identity and refashion subjectivity in an era of economic crisis, the globalisation of techno-cultures and accelerating intolerance of cultural differences? What are the excesses that hover as ghostly spectres around forms of representation and their technologies?
