The Hmm @ CBK Zuidoost
During tonight’s event we’ll be joined by eight researchers, artists, designers, and makers who will take us through their digital worlds and their intersections and interactions with internet culture.
We’re excited to have curator and researcher Ilga Minjon helping us put together a powerful program tonight. In Ilga’s work she aims to weave together and facilitate future imaginaries from artistic practices that speculate on the senses and (networked) relations, as well as queer, decolonial and feminist re-writings of belonging.
Tonight’s event will take place within the exhibition currently on show at CBK Zuidoost, Knights in Shining Armour (reappropriating the appropiated), curated by Claudio Ritfeld.

Where can I safely post/sell nudes? How much can I sell my underwear for? How can I use my body to scam patriarchy? Can scamming white men online be a form of reparations? These are just some of the questions that Marly, a creative director, speculative writer and facilitator, will be exploring tonight. Her work explores the inner worlds and survival strategies of Black women—curating spaces of possibility, pleasure, and unraveling. Tonight she’ll be joining us to talk about OnlyFans and her exploration of subversive spaces of scamming and sexuality online. Link

Natasha is an interdisciplinary artist based in Indonesia. Her artistic practice explores the fictional accounts of the history and myths surrounding ‘manufactured fear.’ She observes any possibilities of other futures that are projected from the subtle and personal struggle of the outcasted entities and beings. Tonight she will talk about her ongoing research and pilgrimage on her ancestral kinship rituality in Minahasa, North Sulawesi, Indonesia and the method of queering the ritual and reclaiming ancestral collective memory through speculative fiction and ancient technology.
