Datumsoria: The Return of the Real
- 09.09.2017 to 18.03.2018
A neologism, »Datumsoria« conjugates »datum« and »sensoria«, denoting a new perceptual space immanent to the information age. »Datumsoria: The Return of the Real« is a considerably expanded version of the eponymous exhibition previously mounted at Chronus Art Center in Shanghai. The exhibition is an outcome of the »Art&Tech@« research program conceived and curated by ZHANG Ga, which aims, through resuscitating the valuable legacy of experiments in art and technology from the mid-twentieth century, to meet with the challenges of a technologically constructed timespace: a new reality that has altogether changed the rules of the game in work and play, in politics and economics, and in artistic imagination and cultural sensibility.
