STRATEGIES FOR THE FUTURE
GREATER THAN 3 COLLECTIVE, VICTORIA LAWSON AND VINCENT AND VAUGHAN WOZNIAK-O’CONNOR
STRATEGIES FOR THE FUTURE consists of the artistic collective >3 (Caroline Austin, Fiona Jeanne Grisard, Mabel Frautschi and Peter Thiedeke) and artists Victoria Lawson and Vincent and Vaughan Wozniak-O’Connor. Using digital installations and performance, the artists tackle the assumptions of Postmodern, post-structuralist philosophy and digital technologies and how these institutions have altered depictions of human circulation. These assumptions are questions in their artworks as is research into the histories of the future and their ontologies. There is no doubt that the world’s largest industries such as tourism, mining and forestry will increasingly need to respond to a call for the ethical management of resources, local workforces and national branding. In mobility theory self-reflexive, performative and embodied philosophies draw upon the premises that cultures intersect across borders both into the centre from the margins and from the centre to the margins. They also contain many open-ended opportunities for dissent or optimistic intervention.
