Possible Fictions, Possible Realities


In the early years of the internet, that new medium for spreading information seemed to be geared towards democratizing communication and knowledge. The barriers posed by spatial distances and material costs were overcome by the technology and, consequently, the World Wide Web emerged as a place of freedom.


But in a few years’ time the network was being pervaded by unprecedented forms of surveillance, misinformation and commodification. The rhizomatic structure of those technologies, added to algorithms capable of calculating and mapping human behavior, has produced toxic environments where manifestations charged with hatred and lies find greater encouragement to be spread, instituting environments of political polarization that have threatened several democracies around the world. In this setting, some artists have developed works that explore and problematize digital contexts such as social networks, proposing critical reflections and the hacking of organizations in those spheres.


The 2021 edition of the Ofício project is held in digital format through occupations on the <anexa> virtual environment. Four artists were invited to explore the use of digital networks as a medium for their productions, which share the experimentation of informational language. Since its foundation in 1946, Sesc has aimed, through the creation of spheres of discussion, promotion and cultural creation, to contribute to the formation of a society capable of critically considering the various domains ― both material and symbolic — that compose it, among which digital networks are taking on an increasingly important role for the exercise of citizenship.
