Complementing All Light, Everywhere and Camille & Ulysse, Techno-Fix further delves into the potentials and threats of technologies and the digital world in relation to our bodies, oppression, and liberation.

Obscured Connections explores lesser-known and often hidden relationships between technological developments, state control, surveillance and colonialism. Tying in with the interrogation of ‘seeing’ and objectivity in All Light, Everywhere, Haig Aivazian’s All of your Stars are but Dust on my Shoes traces connections between light and policing, while Louis Henderson and Filipa César’s Sunstone links the development of optical technologies to military and colonialism. The peculiar abstract and poetic As Birds Flying (Heba Y. Amin) is inspired by an innocent stork suspected of carrying an espionage device over Egyptian territory, and Tabita Rezaire’s net.art style essay Deep Down Tidal reflects on the relationship between modern communication cable networks and old colonial routes. 

Curated by Sanne Jehoul
