“Invisible Threads – A Virtual Sweatshop” a collaboration between Stephanie Rothenberg and Senior Eyebeam Fellow Jeff Crouse, is featured in this new exhibition curated by Steve Dietz and Christiane Paul. The show addresses the current moment in history where the wreckage of political conflict and economic inequality is piling up, while globalized forces—largely enabled by the “progress” of digital information technologies—inexorably feed us forward. The show features 27 amazing artists and artist teams including Christopher Baker, Paul Chan, Nonny de la Peña and Peggy Weil, Hasan Elahi, Cao Fei, Daniel García Andújar, Goldin + Senneby, Harwood, Wright, Yokokoji, Knowbotic Research, Langlands + Bell, Jennifer + Kevin McCoy, Margot Lovejoy, Naeem Mohaiemen, Ali Momeni, Carlos Motta, Trevor Paglen, System77 Consortium, Piotr Szyhalski, Tamiko Thiel.
