Most of us have had to engage with technology in novel ways over the past 12 months as it dominates how we communicate and map our world. How much of this is here to stay, and will the way art is produced and experienced change as a result? In this issue J.J. Charlesworth dives headfirst into the overheated hype surrounding NFTs to find out if anything is going to stick. Martin Herbert reads the warnings implicit in Pakui Hardware’s explorations of bio-power. Sarah Forman enters the delusional, multimedia world of Chinese artist Lu Yang, navigating the fields of performance, 3D avatars, videogames, and Hindu and Buddhist philosophy. Mark Rappolt talks to Mika Tajima about a body of work that fuses the traditional, the contemporary and the futuristic as the New York-based artist explores the psychic and bodily effects of a life lived under a technocapitalist regime. Plus reports from New Delhi, Singapore, Hanoi, Chiang Mai, Berlin, Paris, New York, Cologne.
