This round table will take place in the framework of Planetary Atoll: Connecting Latin American Dots (, an exhibition dedicated to the net art produced in the region throughout the last three decades. From the perspective of the arts as well as the human and social sciences, the panel aims to reflect on certain configurations adopted by cultural transfers in the trans-regional context, particularly those related to the techno-political phenomenon. Moderated by the curator¬†Jazm√≠n Adler¬†(Argentina), the artists and researchers¬†Diego G√≥mez Venegas¬†(Chile/Germany),¬†Molly Soda¬†(Puerto Rico/United States) and¬†√ďscar Gonzalez Diaz¬†(United States/Mexico/Germany) will share their insights on the ways in which the production of knowledge associated with cybernetics, the Internet and digital culture as a whole intertwines the global and the local. The result of these crossings are new paradigms that not only encourage reshaping traditional schemes anchored in the center/periphery dichotomy, but also reconsidering practical and conceptual challenges implied by categories such as ‚ÄúLatin American‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúIbero-American‚ÄĚ.¬†
The exhibition Planetary Atoll: Connecting Latin American Dots is part of the Magical Hackerism project¬†by SAVVY Contemporary in collaboration with, funded by the Senatsverwaltung f√ľr Kultur und Europa des Landes Berlin. The exhibition is organized in the context of Berlin Art Week.
