The Green Room is an exhibition and public engagement project curated by Reem Shadid, developed in part during her residency at V.O Curations. The project invites artists, Anna Engelhardt and Bahar Noorizadeh, to share questions and insights around the deep interdependence of the digital world with our material one, namely by exploring digital platforms, websites, infrastructures and networks.
The public programme for The Green Room looks at broader questions of digital infrastructures to address the central nodes of the project. Interviewed by Engelhardt, Emily Rosamond, lecturer in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University, will talk about reputational warfare and algorithmic rating. Jared Davis, Associate Editor of AQNB and co-host of the editorial platform’s Artist Statement podcast, will convene a workshop on digital ownership and cooperation. Finally, W.E will host a closed assembly that will draw and connect desired, practical and imagined values, goals and strategies to creating a digital commons based on shared interest in alternative economies; the results of this mapping will be installed in space following the workshop.
