DIS

Videoclub
It seems we’ve lost our heads — no need for a brain when we’ve got thumbs that type and swipe, seeking out knowledge from a glut of online information too expansive for any one mind to hold.

Thumbs that Type and Swipe correlates to the latest iteration of DIS — a video network that hybridizes education and entertainment called dis.art, mobilizing an intergenerational network around critical issues facing us today and tomorrow.

Featuring a multitude of programs produced by DIS and its artistic collaborators including short films and documentaries, cartoons, talk shows, a cooking show, musical interludes, ad hoc street interviews, a furniture restoration tutorial, a headless lecture, and a trilogy of Public Service Announcements.

With Darren Bader, Will Benedict and Steffen Jørgensen, Hannah Black, Casey Jane Ellison, Ian Isiah, Ilana Harris-Babou, Aria Dean, Jacob Hurwitz-Goodman & Daniel Keller, Christopher Glazek, Matt Goerzen & Ed Fornieles, Kim Laughton, Whitney Mallett, Sean Monahan, Anastasia Davydova Lewis in collaboration with Eno Swinnen, Maroon World, Chus Martinez, Ada O'Higgins, Babak Radboy, Christopher Kulendran Thomas in collaboration with Annika Kuhlmann, Moritz Schularick, Stefanie Schwarzwimmer, Ryan Trecartin, Amalia Ulman, McKenzie Wark, Malte Zander

Participants

For nearly a decade, DIS collective has continuously embraced, engaged and reinvented important new platforms for the production, dissemination and discussion of contemporary art. Through it’s own unique platforms and curatorial projects like the 9th Berlin Biennale, DIS enhances and amplifies the possibilities and capabilities of art and its role in the artistic, commercial, educational, and public spheres - folding all into one.
In 2018 the collective transitioned platforms from an online magazine, dismagazine.com, to a video streaming edutainment platform, dis.art, narrowing in on the future of education and entertainment. DIS enlists leading artists and thinkers to expand the reach of key conversations bubbling up through contemporary art, culture, philosophy and technology, with the aim to inspire, inform and mobilize a generation around the urgent issues facing us today and tomorrow.

DIS has also exhibited and organized shows at the Young Museum (San Francisco), La Casa Encendida (Madrid), Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art (Winnipeg), Baltimore Museum of Art and Project Native Informant (London). DIS has been included in group exhibitions at MoMA PS1, Museum of Modern Art and the New Museum (New York), Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, ICA Boston, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, among others.
