Dr Helen V. Pritchard’s research work “Queering Damage” by The Underground Division will feature as a large scale installation for the transmediale exhibition 2022 “abandon all hope ye who enter here”.
Conjuring artifice and dark humor in the face of extraction, financial fantasies, and the illusions of techno-solutionism, the works of nine artists and collectives explores the limits of refusal in a computationally ordered and altered world. Featuring Alaa Mansour, Annex, Cihad Caner, Constant Dullaart, Ibiye Camp, Lo-Def Film Factory, Stine Deja, The Underground Division and Tianzhuo Chen.
“Queering Damage” was originally commissioned by the Biennale of Thought for the Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona (MACBA) and the most recent iteration is funded by the Horizon2020 as part of the Artsformation Project a research project exploring the intersection between arts, society and technology, and aims to explore how the arts can help lead society towards more sustainable digital futures in Europe.
