HFT The Gardener
Suzanne Treister's HFT The Gardener is a project comprising of multiple bodies of work by the fictional character Hillel Fischer Traumberg; extending Treister's fascination with esoteric translation, the cybernetics of consciousness, and the hallucinatory aesthetics that radiate from real-world circulations of power.
Viewing Copy is an exhibition showing the work of Auto Italia for the first time in Cairo, presenting the collective practice of the organisation through re-considering two past projects; Auto Italia LIVE: Double Dip Concession and My Skin Is At War With A World Of Data.
