Open Call No. 7 by Solitude & ZKM

Rigged Systems

Curated by Jonas Lund

The Web Residencies call No. 7, Rigged Systems inspired more than 160 artists, designers, and activists from around the globe to submit their projects. Curated by Jonas Lund, the call asked for projects that aim to subvert the power structures in contemporary network systems and that wish to reclaim a sense of agency within the systems where it feels like there is none left. Proposals that playfully rethink the political power balance, imagine new ways of circumventing censorship, or build alternative networks to corporate-owned infrastructures are among the four selected submissions for the web residencies by Solitude & ZKM.
