Michael Mandiberg (b. 1977, Detroit) is an interdisciplinary artist whose work manifests the poetics and politics of the information age.
Mandiberg works within systems to make visible processes that are often hidden in plain sight, or on public web servers. While technically sophisticated, their projects exceed novelty to make propositions about how our lives are being shaped by these tools, and the ideologies undergirding them. This non-binary approach crosses media and evades stable categorization: from large-scale installations like Print Wikipedia's 7,473 books, to custom software driven durational performance like Quantified Self Portrait, to socially engaged pedagogy like the New York Arts Practicum.
They co-founded Art+Feminism, an international collaboration that takes place at The Museum of Modern Art, and hundreds of venues around the world. 16.01.2024 The library and the class will collaborate to organise an Art+Feminism edit-a-thon.
