What do we expect from the technologies we use? Artists have always been more than mere «users» of technology; they have helped design, reshape, hack, and invent tools. This international group exhibition considers artists as inventors of «tools for conviviality» and brings together a broad spectrum of artistic positions that create alternative visions for technology and society by emphasising access, creativity, justice, and interdependence. The concept of «convivial tools» (a term coined by the Austrian social philosopher Ivan Illich) forms the framework for this exhibition, which looks at artists‘ tools, both in the form of software and social structures, and shows how technology and society could be reimagined.
