New technologies are crucial to the acceleration of capitalist operations and, consistent with them, they are no longer oriented primarily towards human actors or instrumental to them. The exhibition is focused on the role of digital technologies and planetary computation for the organisation of global space, which is structured by them in ways, on a scale and at a rate that evade human perceptive and cognitive capacities. The exhibition registers the consequences and the potentials of shifting the driving force of social organisation towards automated and increasingly autonomous processes. Furthermore, it opens the question of how contemporary art, which as a field is still largely bound to its humanist base and (human) spectator, can register the rise of non-human actors, networks and systems, which take on an increasingly leading role in the organisation of complex contemporary capitalist societies.
