Hito Steyerl: Factory of the Sun
⬤ National Gallery of Victoria 28 Sep 2018 - 24 Mar 2019
Hito Steyerl is arguably the most important “post-internet” artist alive today. Though the history of post-internet art is a nascent one insofar as wide-spread use of the technology is quite a recent phenomenon, the art that responds to it also reflects this ascendency. Ironically, the post-internet 'condition' seems to have had a limited lifespan, the work seeming to confirm the zeitgeist of the recent past—one that has quickly evolved into an altogether different present.
