To mark the conclusion of Info-Wars, a research season dedicated to the topic of political radicalization and the internet, the New Museum’s digital art affiliate Rhizome will release Weak Signals, a publication featuring artists and writers who grapple with the near future of political radicalization, community, and climate. The publication draws its name from a technique used for strategic foresight and threat-casting, in which fringe phenomena are interpreted as early indicators of the world to come. Taking this technique as a jumping-off point, this launch event will feature readings and conversations by contributing artists and writers, incorporating speculative narratives and research from the edges of network culture. Weak Signals is edited by Aria Dean and designed by Wieden+Kennedy.
This program is part of Rhizome’s Info-Wars research thread, supported by Seth Stolbun and the Stolbun Collection.
