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” and to speculate on alternative network infrastructures.

Contra-Internet is co-commissioned by Gasworks and Art in General and is a project of Creative Capital.
