Ghost Factory: From Curating as Research to Exhibition as Curatorial Apparatus

6. Mai 2023
‘How to exhibit software?’ The question assumes software to be an object of curatorial concern, a thing to be shown, and one which contributes to knowledge-making practices that are part of culture that today is data-based and computational. Indeed, software and data are important contemporary objects, and they are part of curating as subjects that curate and objects that are curated. I refer to this as curating becoming posthuman (Tyżlik-Carver 2016). Posthuman curating recognises that curating is influenced by computation and that social relations are mediated by algorithmically governed social media and digital networks.
