About the event
Molly Soda: My Dream Room, 2022 (video streaming performance)
My Dream Room is a live performance on Amazon’s streaming platform, Amazon Live. This platform is exclusively for the promotion and sale of products found on Amazon, with streamers making a small commission off of products sold via their streams. The artist Molly Soda will be decorating and shopping for bedroom decor, recreating and approximating a bedroom that lies somewhere between her own and a fantasy of what it could be. She merges online shopping with aspirational lifestyle content to create a virtual bedroom, both completely attainable, linked, ready to be sold and out of reach.

About the exhibition
Planetary Atoll: Connecting Latin American Dots is an exhibition dedicated to a set of net art works that were produced by artists from the region throughout the last three decades.
Surrounded by bipolarities, we are trying to liberate ourselves from nationalist ideas while needing to address specific issues. Whereas Internet based projects promise to outreach a planetary public, they also reveal otherwise forgotten regional specific situations. The Internet has become a political dicomotical ground, but it is also the place where a connective tissue is formed. Rather than adopting a cartography shaped by an up and down model, this exhibition examines the gap between the local and the global and how that in-betweenness emerges in certain digital artworks. This exhibtion is part of the Magical Hackerism project by SAVVY Contemporary in collaboration with panke.gallery, funded by the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa des Landes Berlin. The exhibition is taking place in the context of Berlin Art Week.
