Salome Asega and Victor Peterson in conversation

Publication Cover

Join us for a cybernetic exchange between Salome Asega and Victor Peterson, whose overlapping practices in poetic computation and critique of technology will be presented in dialogue with Neo Muyanga's A Mass of Cyborgs. Free and open to the public. Reservations encouraged. Kindly RSVP here.

Salome Asega is an artist and Director of NEW INC at the New Museum. Her work invites the playful and absurd to critique the speed in which technology develops and poses new consentful tech futures leveraging the power of collective imagination. Salome is a 2022 United States Fellow and an inaugural cohort member of the Dorchester Industries Experimental Design Lab developed by the Rebuild Foundation and Prada. She is also a co-founder of POWRPLNT, a Brooklyn digital arts lab for teens. Salome has participated in residencies and fellowships with Eyebeam, New Museum, The Laundromat Project, and Recess and has exhibited at the 11th Shanghai Biennale, MoMA, Carnegie Library, August Wilson Center, Knockdown Center, and more.

Victor Peterson II is a Cheryl A. Wall and Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice fellow at Rutgers University. His research centers Articulation theory--how relations of subordination and dominance emerge--as well as global conceptions of blackness and the sound of social movements. His most recent work develops a model of improvisation as poetic computation, attending to the strategies, technologies, signifying practices, and resources to rearticulate socio-cultural and political arrangments. His monograph, Black Thought: a Theory of Articulation, was just released in Routledge's African and African Diaspora Series.
