When we talk of “Host” we talk of politics, culture, technology and economy. with hosting we touch a new paradigm – that of relationality. That of being being stuck in the middle. That of imploding freedom. that of ubiquious possibilities. That of being human and that of being posthuman at the same time.
Host is a virtual project that was developed and worked on in OMS during the time of the pandemic in form of a virtual “think tank”. The idea behind this project was to re-think medium based collectivity. We considered HOST as both the medium and the outcome of practices. For that we developed a model, a manifest, a virtual space and an a temporary art collective.
