Logical Conclusions/Automation Effects

Miscellania

Free

What is the cultural logic of automation, and what are its logical conclusions?*

Can ‘automation effects’ be performed, like Brecht’s ‘estrangement effects’?

ESTRANGEMENT OF AUTOMATION/AUTOMATION OF ESTRANGEMENT.

Making automation strange again.

Curated by Mark Andrejevic, Laura McLean, and Joel Stern, this free experimental program at Miscellania club features artists, musicians, writers and researchers thinking with and against the logic of digital automation, algorithmic culture, and AI in order to trouble and subvert systems that extract, aggregate, model, and predict.

With performances and presentations by Monica Lim, Sean Dockray, Mara MacDonald, Vaughan Wozniek O’Connor, Roslyn Orlando, Emile Zile, Zacharias Szumer, Jathan Sadowski, Tom Smith, Sahej Rahal, Karen Ann Donnachie and Andy Simionato

*reference to Sean Dockray’s Logical Conclusions (2007-), and Mark Andrejevic’s remark that the logical conclusion of automated culture is ‘obliteration of the self’.
