Mutations / Créations 2
15 June – 27 August 2018

As part of "Mutations/Créations", "Coder le monde" takes stock of contemporary digital creation in different disciplines. Looking back at the history of the digital code and the way artists have used it since the computer appeared in the 1960s, the exhibition reveals a shared aesthetic and critical world that questions our daily lives, now entirely dependent on digital logic. Based around six timelines, the exhibition brings to light numerous correspondences between various creative approaches, and provides an overall interpretation of what makes a digital culture.
