"'The Great Acceleration: Art in the Anthropocene,' curated by Nicolas Bourriaud, casts human subjects as both increasingly ghostly, stressing limitations and finitudes, as well more aligned with the organic, strange, and sensory. In other words: both more dead and more alive. These qualities have been thrown into relief by the ascendance of the machinic technologies and algorithmic logics that have come to condition much of our activity and attention."

"Decolonizing practices are the rhythms we move to, the relationships we cultivate and the forms of life we inhabit. Hip hop (culture) becomes the message and the medium by which this antidote is deployed, it is a global flow passing through spaces of marginality, growing connections and sense of belonging."
