Screening Lutz Dammbeck’s The Net: The Unabomber, LSD and the Internet
Code of Contingency tackles numerous seemingly related and yet unrelated topics:
failure, programming, sound, action-oriented learning, oral/aural cultures, quantum
mechanics, and critical pedagogy to name a few. On the surface what one has to do with
the other may seem tangential at best. For exhibition curator Lisa Baldini, this all
contributes to the ontology of code — where it’s been and where it’s going. All of this has
been preempted by the creation of cybernetics. Believing that it is always important to
understand critical jumping off points in thought, Baldini will screen parts of The Net:
The Unabomber, LSD and the Internet in tandem with her lecture.
This lecture is lead by curator Lisa Baldini.
