Uncomputables investigates alien, more-than-human intelligences and their philosophical, technological, economic, ecological, and political ramifications. The films in the program probe alternative political imaginaries, in which more-than-human beings take a central role or impact reality despite the fact that they might not exist. Read Agnieszka Kurant’s introduction here.

Artist Cinemas is an ongoing series on e-flux Film focusing on exploring the moving image as understood by people who make film. It is informed by the vulnerability and enchantment of the artistic process—producing non-linear forms of knowledge and expertise that exist outside of academic or institutional frameworks. It also acknowledges the circles of friendship and mutual inspiration that bind the artistic community.
