Venue: Wits Art Museum

On 6th September between 10:00 and 17:00 at Wits Art Museum a workshop with talks and discussions is hosted by by Fak’ugesi Festival in association with the artistic research project Digital Imaginaries. The workshop and the related art exhibition at WAM are the second leg of a three city project, which started in Dakar, Senegal in May and will conclude in Karlsruhe, Germany in November 2018. The workshop is also part of Fak’ugesi Talks: Premonition and Digital Imaginaries – a series of talks that explore how digital data practices shift how uncertain futures are anticipated.

The workshop takes place alongside the exhibition to engage an exploratory debate on questions surrounding artistic research, digital data, and decolonisation in a globalised information society. Program will include a tour of the exhibition and a focus on the subject of vernacular algorithms, followed by a series of talks with leading theorists, philosophers and artists including Sarah Nuttal, Achille Mbembe, Richard Rottenburg, Oulimata Gueye and more.
