2013 marks the 20th anniversary of Curating Contemporary Art exhibitions at the RCA. This year’s graduating students present No one lives here, an exhibition by international artists exploring aspects of the digital age that permeate contemporary life, from the domestic to the political.
The over saturation and remediation of images, through social media, open source databanks and citizen journalism, has contextually altered the individual and social rules of engagement. Bringing together sculpture, installation, moving image and performance, No one lives here, will look at the contradictions and paradoxes of living in the digital age.
The title of the exhibition is derived from Indian theorist and philosopher Gayatri Spivak’s concept of ‘planetarity’ from her book Death of a Discipline (2005). Her assertion that “the globe is on our computers. No one lives there”, frames the exhibition thematic of a virtual environment that is uninhabitable yet populated.
