Fall Semester 2020: Recodings and Renewals

Oct 19 – Nov 20, 2020
Recodings and Renewals, A+RC’s fall 2020 semester of virtual seminars and lectures, examines the material reconfigurations that characterize a digitized world.

Alongside the screen architectures and massive infrastructures that characterize this new world, there are elements that it still incorporates—and reinforces—from previous historical moments, particularly from certain regimes of accumulation that rely on dispossession and social hierarchies often structured along racial lines. This series of seminars and lectures looks at how these “old” features are reconfigured in our time and parses questions about cultural production in light of these persistent, harmful structures and the complex relation of artmaking that is embroiled in a world of capitalized data.
