EXHIBITION - General Intellect

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Aktionsart presents General Intellect, an exhibition of new work from James Coupe. Featuring a generative database of 3,000 videos produced by workers hired through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (mTurk) service, this exhibition displays single and multi-channel video installations throughout an entire decaying school building in South Lake Union. Coupe makes the individuals behind mTurk visible by instructing workers to record a one minute video each hour from 9AM and 5PM, thus creating an archive of their regular daily routine.

General Intellect questions the value of digital and cultural labor, the shifting conditions of exploitation and the new forms of social alienation that we face today, alone and together. Curated by Julia Fryett (Founder, Aktionsart).

The opening reception takes place on Friday, September 17, from 6-8pm. 

The exhibition runs from Friday, September ​18 - Saturday, October 3, and is open Thu​rsday - Saturday, 12:00pm - 5:00PM.
