In 1992, the seminal cyberfeminist art collective VNS Matrix described themselves as the virus of the ‘New World Disorder’ and ‘saboteurs of the big daddy mainframe.’ Almost 30 years later, in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic, climate-induced eco-crises and expanding digital hegemonies, there is need to interrogate the networks, narratives and modes of exchange that shape our realities.

Economythologies is a curated portfolio of creative research experiments, comprising exhibitions, public talks, performance lectures, art commissions, a zine and collaborative digital scrapbooking project. It facilitates a unique dialogue between Australian and international contemporary art, tech and scholarly communities to critically explore the working and un-working of myths engendered by our technological, economic and social systems.

These experiments were presented at Ainslie+Gorman Arts Centre (ACT), Bett Gallery (TAS) and online.
