For a number of years Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter (b. 1976) has been exploring the territorial aspects and control mechanisms of information technology. In her first solo exhibition in Denmark, she will focus on how global power positions are played out in and around the economic and technical infrastructures through a close reading of the famous Millennium bug.
The relationship between language and reality constitutes the focal point of this exhibition, which addresses the current state of society and atmosphere of crisis. Rather than an ideological manifesto it unfolds as a poetic social critique in four chapters and delves into the nature of crisis to explore the basis for new stories and possibilities for action. The exhibition is curated by Overgaden and is based on a short story written for the occasion by the author Kasper Nørgaard Thomsen.
