The web-based project Are you for Real is about engaging with and visualizing connections of people, thoughts, things, and places – communication happening through the trading and training of data. It addresses the material and immaterial aspects of the ‘digital’ and how they are perceived from the perspectives of various disciplines: artists, researchers, and coders are commissioned to create works that offer us their understanding of and approach to reality.
The ongoing project is a plafrom of exchange that supports formats such as exhibitions, workshops, digital art spaces, and apps. It takes place in arbitrarily choses sites, as wide-ranging as betting halls, post offices, gaming venues, and cultural centres.
The artworks produced will change during the course of the project, as new artists join and take over, add, and react to them. This means that certin qualities of traveling exhibition will become visible, articules through the touring of thought and the changes and traces in each work.
Curation: Julia Grosse, Yvette Mutumba and Paula Nascimento.
