Contra-Internet Inversion Practice #1: Constituting an Outside (Utopian Plagiarism) (2015)

Spanning video, sculpture, performance and text, Contra-Internet is a large-scale installation that confronts the transformation of the internet into an instrument for state oppression and accelerated capitalism. Inspired by theorist Paul B. Preciado’s Manifiesto Contrasexual, Contra-Internet unites feminist and queer perspectives to fracture the global dominance of “the Internet” while speculating on alternative network infrastructures that activists are developing globally.

Contra-Internet premieres as a solo exhibition at Gasworks in September 2017.
