What if?

In a world that draws our attention to the present
moment, both facts and stories are now subject to fluctuations, whether fictional or virtual. What if we started inventing the truths we desired, to the detriment of genuine facts? What kind of worlds would this create?

What if?

offers a collection of online works that create uncommon, digital versions of the world and of history. Works
that revisit history by exploring new approaches to political and social impasses. Works that exploit a dystopian internet and alternative networks. Finally, works that confront multiple experiences of time, both human and machine-based. The exhibition is presented in three sections: 1. Speculative Future(s), 2. Dystopian Internet, and 3. Uchronic Agency.

Artworks included:
– Skawennati, with TimeTravellerTM (Canada)
– Joao Enxuto and Erica Love, with ISCA (USA)
– Stéphane Degoutin and Gwenola Wagon, with Cyborgs in the Mist (France)
– Scott Rettberg and Roderick Coover, with TOXI-CITY (USA/Norway)
– Pippin Barr, with a looped and autonomous version of Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment (Canada)
