Bit Field Black

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, May 19, 2020. 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Zoom
Workshop: 
Digital Aesthetics: Critical Approaches to Computational Culture 2019
Meeting Description: 

Kris Cohen will discuss new research from his manuscript-in-progress, Bit Field Black. Bit Field Black accounts for how a group of Black artists working from the Sixties to the present were addressing, in ways both belied and surprisingly revealed by the language of abstraction and conceptualism, nascent configurations of the computer screen and the forms of labor and personhood associated with those configurations.

Kris Cohen is Associate Professor of Art and Humanities at Reed College. He works on the relationship between art, economy, and media technologies, focusing especially on the aesthetics of collective life. His book, Never Alone, Except for Now (Duke University Press, 2017), addresses these concerns in the context of electronic networks.
