Newly commissioned texts on the work of the artist Agnieszka Kurant by Anselm Frank, Caroline A. Jones, Franco (Bifo) Berardi, and others.
Agnieszka Kurant: Collective Intelligence explores the artist’s work over the last ten years, examining her interdisciplinary practice, which focuses on collective intelligence—a phenomenon observed in bacteria, animals, social movements, internet, cities, and inside our brains—where novel forms emerge in unpredictable ways out of interactions among thousands of elements or agents in a complex system. This book brings together newly commissioned texts by some of the most renowned thinkers in their fields: curator and writer Anselm Franke, art historian Caroline A. Jones, media theorists Jussi Parikka and Matteo Pasquinelli, anthropologists Stefan Helmreich and Tobias Rees, philosophers Rosi Braidotti, Franco (Bifo) Berardi, Manuel Delanda, and Yuk Hui, science writer Philip Ball, writers Elvia Wilk and Esther Leslie, science fiction writer Ted Chiang, and many others.
