Talk: Constant Dullaart

On Friday, March 15 at 5:30 pm, the Biennale welcomes the artist Constant Dullaart, who presents two works in the exhibition, for a conference at the Café de la Biennale (free admission)

Title: “Performing with identities, or contemporary materiality in a networked landscape.”

Blurb: In a time where everybody is their own brand, and social capital becomes the commodity of an attention economy, how can we make artworks truly reflect on our changing cultures?
Dullaart will discuss his practice and recent works in which he uses the notion of the start-up, bought social media followers reciting poetry, distributed images, and encryption to highlight our contemporary materiality.

Constant Dullaart‘s practice reflects on the broad cultural and social effects of communication and image processing technologies, from performatively distributing artificial social capital on social media to completing a staff-pick Kickstarter campaign for a hardware start-up called Dulltech™. His work includes websites, performances, routers, installations, startups, armies, and manipulated found images, frequently juxtaposing or consolidating technically dichotomized presentation realms.

> Free admission, limited seating available.
