“LOW FORM” is not just an exhibition but a workshop for study and debate on themes associated with humanity’s relationship with technology and the incredible scenarios opened up by its evolution. A broad-based approach that will develop a rich programme of encounters, supported by Google Arts & Culture, featuring international experts and academics such as Padre Paolo Benanti, Francesco Spampinato and Luciano Floridi and the artist Jon Rafman, a video review, and a new publication from cura.books with an anthology of important theoretical texts including those by James Bridle, Nora Khan, Luciana Parisi and Hito Steyerl, as well as previously unseen visual contributions by the artists.
