Writings On Technology And Culture

Introduction by Bartomeu Marí.
Published by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art

This publication brings together texts by Olad Ajiboy Bamgboy, an artist born in 1963 in Odu-Eku, Nigeria, and based since 1966 in London. Bamgboy's politically-driven work interweaves ethical and aesthetic concerns with remarkable care, dexterity and attention to process--and this goes for both his art and his critical writings, which bring a fresh, non-Western perspective to current debates about technology and culture. As Bamgboy puts it in his artist's statement: ''Central to my academic interests, teaching philosophy and artistic-critical framework is the need to make sense of culture and its complexities during the purported era of globalization. Equally necessary for my practice is a critical appraisal of technology as a culture that saturates our world, leading to its ascendance as a dominant discourse... I am interested in the possibilities for a critical art practice that is informed by the analysis of our cultural condition while avoiding the pitfalls of hypercynicism that can confine us within a framework that longs for an old reality.''
