As part of THE EDUCATIONAL WEB exhibition programme at Kunstverein in Hamburg, Afterall ArtSchool will initiate a series of online conversations with artists, scholars, and collectives examining artistic practice and the educational epistemologies which underpin it. Emphasising the pedagogic qualities of dialogue and exchange, these conversations, which will later double as podcast episodes on Afterall ArtSchool, will involve practitioners thinking through and across three different strands: problematising the decolonial institution, education as learning together, and studying in the shadows.

Please join us for a conversation between Afterall ArtSchool co-editor Camille Crichlow and artist, filmmaker, and writer, Zach Blas. Blas’s creative practice engages the materiality of digital technologies while also drawing out the philosophies and imaginaries lurking in artificial intelligence, biometric recognition, predictive policing, airport security, the internet, and biological warfare. The discussion will reflect on Blas’s pedagogical and research-based approaches to artistic practice and technologies of capture shaped by queer and feminist theory.
