This is a curatorial research project and online exhibition. It departs from Yuk Hui’s advocacy for Technodiversity, or the proposal for cosmological models that diversify the western hegemony in the discourse and conception of technology. From this perspective, the curatorial research looks for alternative connections between technics and cosmology that manifest on each ‘local’ web. It enquires around the topics of digital societies, online esoterism, territoriality, and systems representing themselves, with the goal of finding how local behavior and beliefs ooze into the online platforms of everyday use while altering them in the process.
Technodiversity was developed with the support of a grant by the Bogota Council for the Arts, whose goal is to fund curatorial research between two countries (China and Colombia for this version), and produce an online exhibition.
