Speaker: DISNOVATION.ORG

DISNOVATION.ORG is a working group based in Paris, initiated by Nicolas Maigret (FR) and Maria Roszkowska (PL). At the intersection of contemporary art, research and hacking, the collective develops situations of disruption, speculation and debate, in order to question dominant techno-positivist ideologies and to stimulate post-growth technological narratives. They recently edited The Pirate Book an anthology on media piracy. Their research includes artworks, curation and publications. In 2018, they received a Design Trust Grant for a research about China’s Shanzhai culture.

Disnovation’s work has been presented at numerous venues and festivals internationally such as Centre Pompidou (Paris), Transmediale (Berlin), the Museum of Art and Design (New York), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), FILE (Sao Paulo), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Strelka Institute (Moscow), ISEA (Hong Kong), Elektra (Montréal), China Museum of Digital Arts (Beijing), and the Chaos Computer Congress (Hamburg)…

Their work has been featured in Forbes, Vice, Wired, Motherboard, Libération, Die Zeit, Arte TV, Next Nature, Hyperallergic, Le Temps, Neural.it, Digicult, Gizmodo, Seattle Weekly, torrentfreak.com, and Filmmaker Magazine among others.

Frequent collaborators include: Jérome Saint-Clair, Clément Renaud, Hongyuan Qu, Baruch Gottlieb, Dasha Ilina.
