Centre Pompidou

Entry with a “museum and exhibitions” ticket from the Centre Pompidou.

This exhibition will bring together around sixty artists, architects, and designers and will question the role of  networks in today's society, innervated by social networks and the  dematerialization of the network itself,  now virtual. More than ever, the network, in the age of the Internet, this "network of networks", is at the heart of technological changes and societal challenges (surveillance society, omnipresence of social networks, atomization of the individual). But the primary network is that of the living, which links species together, generating new forms of "connectedness".

Curator Marie-Ange Brayer, curator, Musée national d'art moderne/Centre de Création Industrielle-Centre Pompidou, chief curator of design and industrial forecasting, Olivier Zeitoun, curator Musée national d'art moderne/Centre de création Industrielle-Centre Pompidou
