About

Park Acoustics
3-9pm
Consisting of various informal performances, readings and installations that engage with the space of the park, Park Acoustics will feature a series of sonic events conceived for the park and coincide with the Kittler Picnic. Park Acoustics is organised in collaboration with South London Gallery.

Park Acoustics takes place in various locations throughout the park, Cafe Gallery and Dilston Grove.

***

Kittler Picnic
4-6pm
The late theorist Fredrich Kittler wrote on machine determinism and its dominance over the way humans communicate and behave. If technology is not an extension of us, but we ? instead ? part of its autonomous evolution, what is the relationship between technology and society?

A group of artists and writers propose a picnic, a networked event that performs the distribution and digestion of knowledge. Circuits and systems of eating and communicating, recording and transcribing, are enacted in a public park. Thinking is translated into binary codes, appropriated, cooked and consumed.

Beth Collar / Annie Davey / Alastair Frazer / Charmian Griffin / Alice Hattrick / Stuart Middleton / Angharad Williams + more

To join the Kittler Picnic please meet at Cafe Gallery at 3pm.
