Agnieszka Kurant - The End of Signature
exhibition_ 04/09/2018 til 16/03/2019
The piece addresses the substitution of individual authorship with hybrid, collective forms, as well as the decline of manual writing and its replacement by digital means of communication. To make this work, the artist collects signatures from members of various communities and aggregates them into a single inscription using software that she developed with a computer programmer. By developing these collective signatures for communities and social movements, Kurant explores the rising power of social capital, the aggregated value of which can be algorithmically calculated.
