“Neo-Past-Forward v.1.0” is a disjointed narrative of complex thoughts, emotions and contemporary discourse. Godard said, “The so-called ‘digital’ is not a mere technical medium, but a medium of thought. Yet theorists try to define our times through terms like Post-Internet, Post-Truth, and Post Reality, artists return to Praxis by directly engaging their environment through the creation of new philosophical labyrinths and continued détournement of etheric physical situations. Once what was common space and restricted to the city square has now become a public global sphere (Öffentlichkeit) of influence. As Jurgen Habermas stated, this space was “coextensive with public authority.” Today the public hypersphere has given agency to an inclusive borderless private/public dimension. A super modern avant-garde is investigating and challenging this public/private authority and opens new windows of opportunity in strategic attempts to create new meaning.
