The Interventions exhibition features works that engage with contemporary cultural discourse and political reality, challenging audiences to consider digital artifacts and practices that reflect and intervene in matters of the environment, social justice, and our relation to the habitus. The program also includes a presentation of works originally made for 3D CAVEs adapted for the Oculus Rift, and in Cinemateket a performance of a “code opera” and screenings of a film about the field of electronic literature.
