Projects

In 2001, e-flux initiated a program of online projects that gradually evolved into a traveling series of experimental exhibitions. Some of these projects are now dormant and archived here, while others remain ongoing.

Animism

Animism on e-flux.com is a digital project that could also be a cinematic lecture, a speculative text performed by voices, images, and sounds, or a guided tour through an archive with multiple points of entry. It is the ninth iteration of the exhibition and overall research project curated by Anselm Franke.

Summa Technologiae

Summa Technologiae—titled after a collections of philosophical essays by Stanisłav Lem—is a project that puts together three formats: the school, the conference, and the exhibition, in order to look at the impact of Lem’s work across disciplines: from Literature to Film, to Philosophy, Art, Architecture, Technological Innovation, and Computer Science.

Summa Technologiae begins as a pedagogical investigation consisting of four online seminars, taking place in November and December of 2020. The seminars will be focused on producing “outcomes” (notes, texts, drawings, videos, research elaborations), that will be made available on the Summa Technologiae project platform.

Summa Technologiae seminars are organized by Julieta Aranda, as a cooperation between e-flux and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
