Take the Long View with Pakui Hardware: April Issue Out Now

 
Before the gods

Most of us have had to engage with technology in novel ways over the past 12 months, as it dominates how we communicate and map our world. ArtReview's April issue is out now (subscribe here), exploring the intersections of culture and tech by way of NFTs, corporeal enhancement and virtual worlds: how much of this is here to stay, and will the way art is produced and experienced change as a result? Included in the issue – Martin Herbert reads the warnings implicit in Lithuanian artist duo Pakui Hardware's hallucinatory futures. Their art 'presents an aesthetics of entanglement in which positives of scientific progress – life extension, say – are indivisible from the negatives of neoliberal biopower and the lure of scientism'.

Elsewhere on artreview.com: Ismail Einashe examines the creative fizz of East Africa's undisputed art capital, Nairobi; Sarah Jilani pays tribute to the pioneering feminist thinker Nawal El Saadawi; and Tom Whyman reveals what Jordan Peterson's followers really crave. Plus: stream Lu Yang's Delusional Crime and Punishment in Art Lovers Movie Club as part of a special screening of the artist's moving image works this month. Happy weekend.
