Addictive Behaviours – interview

annie-abrahams3

For the new Furtherfield website’s “debate” section Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett asked me to reflect on the limits and potentials of art and human agency in the context of increased global automation.

Addictive Behaviours: Interview with Artist Annie Abrahams

Triggered by their questions I talked about the difficulty to describe my artistic work in institutional contexts and how in a conversation with a friend I tried to explain my interest in Agency Art. Using this term means being able to make cross sections through disciplines and opening up closed domains of practice. I also talk about a lack of res-ponsability in online affect management and my mistrust in the influence of algorithms produced by  machines themselves.

The interview is part of an editorial series, alongside the Are We All Addicts Now? exhibition, book, symposium and event series at Furtherfield.
Are We All Addicts Now? Is an artist research project led by Katriona Beales.

In the same series there is also a delicious prose-poem-hex from artist and poet Francesca da Rimini (aka doll yoko, GashGirl, liquid_nation, Fury) who traces a timeline of network seduction, imaginative production and addictive spaces from early Muds and Moos.

Vote: Automatic for the people: (): MTAA

After  Our Political Work, which is one of my favorite MTAA pieces, the artists start their new project Automatic for the people: (), commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art as part of The Art of Participation: 1950 to Now, today.

You can dictate the details of a contemporary art performance. Each week, from November 8–January 21, vote in a new poll to determine different elements. On February 7, the artists perform live using the script shaped by your votes!
