alt.history #5 — nora n. kahn

15 Nov



free admission



New technologies and cultural developments are often synonymous with erasure; forgetting why or how we used to do some things, and what words or communities meant. Addressing moments, practices and works that have faded from memory (or have been completely forgotten) over the last three decades, alt.history conversation cycle features experts in culture and aesthetics, in a reflection that seeks to resurface and re-examine the lost narratives of digital culture. This programme is curated by Holo (, a Canadian editorial and curatorial platform, created in 2012, which focuses on emerging trajectories in art, science and technology.
