About the event

In 2022, and the Zentrum für Netzkunst presented the curatorial program Planetary Atoll: Connecting Latin American Dots. As a follow-up, we are launching a book with guest authors reflecting on the internet, culture, and art in the context of the Global South.

Join us on Wednesday, November 29 for a pre book launch and talk with author Gabriel Menotti and Berlin-based art, film and media scholar and curator Cornelia Lund at /rosa (Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 35, Berlin Mitte). They will discuss the intersection of internet art, Latin America, and Germany, as well as the broader themes of the exhibition, such as the gap between the local and the global and the role of the internet in shaping contemporary culture.

The evening will be hosted by Berlin-based Brazilian DJ Jorge Kukiri, and will conclude with a DJ set.
