Deadline day today for this interesting residency by ZKM (Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe). With the premise that The glitch is the catalyst, not the error. The glitch is the happy accident (Legacy Russell); this is a call for artists, designers, (bio)hackers, technologists, storytellers, writers, healers and shape-shifters to create new open–source strategies for undoing the trap of this planetary shift.
Curated by Mary Maggic, one of the minds alongside Byron Rich behind the forward-thinking project Open Source Estrogen, the artist proposes a response to climate change, rising sea levels and the chemical alteration and industrialization of the planet, which patriarchal, hegemonic, capitalist forces have largely driven. And to change the course of this alienation, both now and in the future, require new commons, harnessed and transformed out of the planetary glitch while creating open–source strategies founded in inclusion, diversity, balance, and equity.
