HUBERMAN, Anthony (cur.)
Other Mechanisms points to a present moment when machines don't look much like machines. Many aren't even called machines.
Machines are part of the air we breathe, overseeing our lives and our bodies, from the way we communicate and consume to the way we trade and travel. The works in this exhibition reflect on what it could mean to contest the regime of the machine. They compromise its tools, misuse its technologies, reroute its engineering, complicate its measurements.
They reinsert the awkwardness of the human body, with all of its irregularities and inefficiencies.[publisher's note]
