More on CBIC:
Cloud-Based Institutional Critique is a discussion and reading group aimed at gathering voices interested in discourses about innovation, digital technology, and "disruption" as they implicate cultural institutions. Its aim is to form a useful critical vocabulary outside of the hype and accepted narrative about the roles technology can and will play in reshaping the "art world."
