“Union miners stand together
Do not heed the bosses tales
Keep your eyes upon your wages
and your hand upon the scale”
– A Miner’s Life (trad arr.)
The cyberpunks see the internet as a way to transgress physical borders, destroy social hierarchies and allow information to flow freely. Can we use the internet to create new queer spaces as the forces of capital convalesce around a permanent state of crisis, sweeping away our community venues and clubs in the chaos of the class war?
Leo Francisco of the Queerzone3000 collective has created a virtual world using the open-source Minetest game. Drop out and connect from anywhere on the internet and build a resilient virtual community with your friends. Share the plentiful resources with cooperation and care. Build a new world that provides for all.
You can relax and play in the hacker space at BOM or you can join us online and remotely. (For instructions on how to play the game and connect remotely, please head to the exhibition website).
The hangout space will also include work by local artists Taylor Wells and Caleb Steer.
This new commission is presented by BOM in partnership with SHOUT.
Exhibition open 12-5pm, Wednesday to Saturday.
