This event is a part of the Graduation Show 2018 programme

XPUB is a two-year PZI Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design that focuses on the intents, means, and consequences of making things public in the age of post-digital networks.

Experience: Is it possible to archive the experience of social dance and what does it mean to interactively take control of two swing dancers?
Express: What questions and expressions are posed by improvisation upon the production of artistic work in terms of its material value and traditional attributions of mastery?
Expand: Are there alternative ways of living and organizing activities in communities, that can expand our ideas on collective values?
Extract: How can an independent, self-hosted repository of digital documents about the Catalan referendum of October 1, 2017, be used to extract significance from social media noise?
Expose: What is the purpose of a lexicon exposing neologisms and terms used by two prominent far-right online subcultures, the Alt-Right and the Manosphere?
Exchange: How does one exchange a conversation in a social setting? Would a drink help?
