free admission



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