Displacement–assemblage: an exhibition of research practice

superconductr

superconductr carries out research at the intersection of art, political economy and digital platform labour. superconductr approaches this field of work, in which labour can be bought and sold with a few clicks of a mouse or a few taps on a mobile phone, through interventions that use digital labour platforms as the medium with which to produce artworks, addressing issues of algorithmic control, neoliberal subjectivity, affect, embodiment and labour rights. The name superconductr refers to Michel Foucault’s concept of power as the conduct of conduct, which here takes into account conduction as the transmission, control and mining of data streams in networks that facilitate the capture and extraction of human labour power. superconductr is a project by artist Matthias Kispert, a practice-based PhD candidate at the University of Westminster.
