The second Lunch Bytes discussion in London explores how artists have engaged with computational structures in their work and how contemporary art is shaped by the infrastructures that underpin the digital realm. Chaired by Ben Vickers, speakers include Wendy Chun, Boris Groys, Hannah Sawtell and Paul Kneale.

Considering how the art world’s traditional spaces, such as the gallery or the museum, relate to the internet as a repository and space for the reception of art, this discussion will examine how online spectatorship is constituted. Asking how these complex spaces are organised, this panel discussion examines how artists relate to online spaces and how this affects the production of artworks, as well as their dissemination.

This panel of artists and theorists will also consider the infrastructures that compose and condition the platforms, devices and applications we use daily, questioning how they affect our perception of, and engagement with, the information we consume and produce at ever-increasing speeds. Looking to artists’ work that intervene in the systems of control that are constitutive to our networked environments, this discussion will address the manner in which creativity has been transformed by the internet with its attendant strategies of mass visibility.

Lunch Bytes is a series of four public discussions over the course of a year, which examine the consequences of the increasing ubiquity of digital networked technologies in relation to artistic practice. Each event is dedicated to a different topic and brings together European artists, media scholars, designers, curators and intellectuals.

Organised in collaboration with Arcadia Missa; Digital Culture Unit, Goldsmiths, University of London; and the Goethe Institut, this series is part of a larger European project conceived by Melanie Buehler and the Goethe-Institut in Northwest Europe, comprising events in London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Dublin, which will culminate with a symposium in Berlin in 2015.
