The Plugin 2019 theme RW. [material] revealed a discovery that addresses an intuitive aesthetic creation of experience with technology, and that aims to leave a mark on the human mind beyond the retinal perception.
Plugin 2020 is an exhibition that shows how the raw material discovered in 2019 is processed and that continues with the data from the first year. RW. [post-], which will bring together the audience and the processed material produced by the artists, focuses on the flow in human-machine communication, artificial reproductions, artificial intelligence, areas that intertwine and separate, areas that are not limited to the aesthetic language of the new media, areas like bio-art, and the construction of reproduction in these days that we are thinking about the future. In this whole structure, «post-» invites to explore in a fiction in which it takes today’s people, artists and researchers to the center.
