Coming soon: KW DIGITAL: Poetics of Encryption

17 February - 26 May

This extensive group exhibition at KW builds upon the recent book by Nadim Samman titled Poetics of Encryption: Art and the Technocene. It surveys an imaginative landscape marked by Black Sites, Black Boxes, and Black Holes—terms that indicate how technical systems capture users, how they work in stealth, and how they distort cultural space-time.

The exhibition architecture has been made in collaboration with Jürgen Mayer H. / J. MAYER H.
