A cross-axis from a-archaeology and traditional approaches, a methodology that questions dominant hierarchies of knowledge and cultural, social, regional and historical phenomena; Addressed media archaeology, a research axis coordinated by Juan Orozco, examines devices, platforms and media practices in their evolution to analyze the meaning and history of technologies. It goes beyond conventional definitions of technology and seeks to explore cultural and social processes, events and phenomena, as well as practices such as variation, tinkering and hacking.
The Ancestral and Technological Axis, coordinated by Barbara Santos, explores how different cultures and ancestral knowledge view and understand the world. Cultivating hidden connections and alternatives, recognizing technologies as an integral part of cultural fabric and ancestral knowledge.
From the axis of inter-ethnic relations led by Santiago Arcila, the establishment of multicultural societies and the exploration of related issues will be addressed from aesthetic, political, social and legal perspectives.
Finally, design and technology will be addressed using different approaches to look beyond dominant design practices and explore alternative or overlooked design artefacts, practices or cultures. Question existing design paradigms, explore subcultures or counter-design movements, and uncover narratives eclipsed by dominant historical narratives.
Some special guests, such as Ernesto Orosa, Cuban artist, designer and researcher, will explore his concept of technological disobedience and present his experience in architecture and products created in times of social and economic crisis. Kenrick McDowell, Google Research’s Artists + Artificial Intelligence Program Leader, will bring his unique perspective on the intersection of culture, society and technology, from artificial intelligence and the ways in which neural media are transforming the human experience. On the other hand, Doreen A. Rios, independent curator and researcher, and Kanek Zapata, textual and post-internet artist, will enrich conversations from digital art and new materials.
