Ownership and Authorship in the Age of Digital Technology

12/02/2021 @ 11:00 - 13:00 GMT

In this lecture and workshop Antonio will introduce you to his artistic and curatorial practice, with a focus on how artists working digitally are coming into conflict with archaic and outdated copyight laws and ideas of ownership.

Antonio Roberts is an artist and curator based in Birmingham, UK, working primarily with video, code, and sound. He is critically engaged with the themes surrounding network culture and in his practice explores how technology continues to shape ideas of creation, ownership, and authorship. As a performing visual artist and musician he utilises live coding techniques to demystify technology and reveal its design decisions, limitations, and creative potential.

His work has been featured at galleries and festivals including databit.me in Arles, France (2012), Glitch Moment/ums at Furtherfield Gallery, London (2013), Loud Tate: Code at Tate Britain (2014), glitChicago at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in Chicago, US (2014), Permission Taken at Birmingham Open Media and University of Birmingham (2015-2016), Common Property at Jerwood Arts, London (2016), Ways of Something at Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2017), Green Man Festival, Wales (2017), Barbican, London (2018), Copy / Paste at the Victoria and Albert Museum (2019) and We Are Your Friends at Czurles Nelson Gallery, Buffalo, US (2019).
