The contemporary system of production and consumption of images follows the imperative of the accelerated neoliberalism that shapes the world around us in deep and obscure ways. Technology plays a controversial role in this scenario. From cryptic Instagram algorithms to insidious AI’s at our fingertips, we are surrounded by canals and tools through which images are generated, manipulated and propagated with less and less human agency.






TikTok vs Abramovic presents the work of artists whose practice navigates the possibilities of the image-making as a means for defiance of the status quo; as well as investigating the accountability of image-making itself, as being a significant node in networks of economical and political interests.
