Fictions which build reality

In this episode of The Debrief, we’re down in Łódź taking a look at a new exhibiton by contemporary artist Agnieszka Kurant.


A new exhibition at the Muzeum Sztuki gallery in Łódź by contemporary artist Agnieszka Kurant focuses on the “simultaneously creative and destructive role of error in the face of modern automation and algorithmisation”.

John Beauchamp speaks to curator Jakub Gawkowski about this avant-garde critique of neo-liberalism and the seemingly indivisible lines of natural/artificial as well as pitching the individual against the collective.

In this week’s review:
