Post-Internet Lanscapes (PIL) is the first manifestation of agorama and the product of a collaboration between Juan Crespo, Enrique Tutor and amaCollective. It consists of a website that takes the form of a virtual institution.
PIL explores the possibilities of .gif and meme formats as a material suitable for artistic and cultural discourse, taking advantage of new media features through collection and archival methods. Based on ideas such as anachronism, dialogue, popular culture, disruption or folklore and behavior migrations, the project questions how these tendencies can interpret the vast cultural and creative internet manifestations, developing new approaches to social, historical or political points of view.
Our interests lie not only in the borders and limits between the artistic and the cultural, but in the differences which can define both collecting practice and the curatorial act. In other words, we will apply curatorial logic and methods to a non-artistic material, whose transference to the context of the World Wide Web is even more wild and unpredictable.
It is a London-based curatorial collective comprised of Alejandro D. Ball (1983, Lima), Miriam La Rosa (1988, Palermo) and Amy E. Brown (1986, Aberdeen).
They are currently involved in a research project contemplating the notion of Dialogue, taking the form of an exploratory process of communication through performance and performativity.
