Becoming Camwhore, Becoming Pizza: Interview with Arcadia_Missa, Ann Hirsch and Jennifer Chan

This article is a discussion with Rozsa Farkas, Director of Arcadia_Missa, and the artists Ann Hirsch and Jennifer Chan, held prior to the event State and Lore (Revolutionizing Desire: A Reclamation of Representation for its Affective Potential) in November 2012 at the South London Gallery. Documentation from the event can be watched here

This article looks at the inter-relationships between forms of self-representation and Web2.0 technology in recent art practice, and considers how performance might work to destabilise the traditional distinction between IRL and URL. It also discusses the use of technology as a framing device – a way to situate practice in a highly specific social, political and historical context – and asks the discussants to reflect on this idea of technology-as-context (not content), thinking about how context informs the relationship between criticality and aesthetics.
