UCL Multimedia Anthropology Lab is proud to present Multimedia Encounters, our latest exhibition created to coincide with UCL MAL’s first academic conference Multimedia Encounters, taking place January 12th - 15th, 2021.
Multimedia Encounters attends to the relationship between anthropological thought and virtual intelligence. Smart algorithms and the anthropological mind both operate recursively, dismembering knowledge as we know it, catalyzing visions and birthing alternative futures. Our exhibition seeks to probe and push this structural equivalence, exploring its limits and creating the ground for future multimedia encounters.
Echoing themes explored in the conference Multimedia Encounters, the exhibition aims to dissect and examine our own systems of value, to re-think how knowledge is produced, and to create spaces for re-imagining what it means to be human in a 21st Century mediascape. In addition to presenting the work of conference panelists, our exhibition features work from UCL MAL’s global network of anthropologists, artists and researchers.
