Virus Redux-Reconfiguring Culture



Host Suzanne Anker and guests reconsider the virus as both a biological and cultural phenomenon. In its mutating form, new strains have been able to cross species boundaries, just as globalization has created permeable boundaries in geopolitics. The panelists discuss new media art and politics in terms of a living code. With Joseph Nechvatal,
an innovator in robotic painting and digital art; Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum and Director of
Intelligent Agent; and
McKenzie Wark, cultural critic and author of A Hacker Manifesto, published by Harvard University Press.
