► a’21: techno utopia x post-digital ignorance

► 10 MARCH - 18 MAY, 2021


The past few decades have witnessed a tremendous proliferation of digital technology. References to a techno-utopia where knowledge would be available to each and all seemed to signal the possibility of positive social and cultural change while acknowledging a fundamental flaw. Digital technologies’ commitment to making knowledge accessible to all would supposedly produce a universal benefit and wellbeing which was partly realised but digital technologies did in no way result in a techno-utopia. It has become apparent that besides letting vast amounts of knowledge accessible to ever more people, digital technologies are also powerful tools producing a peculiar kind of public ignorance, one that seems to proliferate amidst ever multiplying information and knowledge available in today’s digitalised environment. With a’21 Festival - Post Digital Ignorance x Techno Utopia, we aim to challenge the status quo while centring perspectives on non-human life, queer ecology, decolonising knowledge, forced displacement, and more. :: 69+ artists, scientists and activists in 16 countries #SWANA #AFRICA #EUROPE #ASIA
