Hito Steyerl

Hito Steyerl’s video, performance, and philosophical works expose, with invigorating force, the paradoxes of the virtualization of reality under the influence of digital image and media networks. The Berlin-based artist and theoretician invents highly tonic forms that create a narrative for what an image is and does today. Steyerl’s investigations target the often-militarized economies of images in a globalized world, the sibylline metaphors of digital capitalism, or the galloping privatization of public spaces such as art museums.

Exhibition produced in partnership with the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
