The conference "Power Figures, Regression Codes" will be held at the Laboratory of Art Criticism on December 16 in the Vintage Hall of Winzavod. The starting point for the reports will be an essay by Walter Benjamin "A work of art in the era of its technical reproducibility", where the author noted the threat of fascism in the event that the technical revolution does not follow the political one. The last twenty years we have witnessed the accelerated development of the Internet, social media and digital media. However, without social and political changes, this new digital revolution is already turning into a growth of reaction and conservative sentiments, replacing the former emancipatory optimism about the Internet. At the conference, participants will discuss how art can counter this neo-reaction impulse and how critics define themselves in this struggle.
