About Spain, history and memory.

The starting point for this project is the postdigital observation that algorithms and data have already permeated society. Our relationship to the social and material world is increasingly mediated by digital representations, while the complexities of their technological constitution have become invisible. Against this backdrop, contemporary art and design practices engage with digital methods and call for a critical reflection of digitization processes. Facing the rise of artificial intelligence, automatization and algorithmic decision-making, there is a growing need to devise strategies, techniques and theories which address the challenges and contradictions of the postdigital condition.
