Artist Harm Van Den Dorpel, in conversation with writer Jazmina Figueroa, will present the relaunch of left.gallery, the platform's plans for new features, and systems of support in net art. Figueroa, in her research and writing, traces autonomy in technological developments – a topic that is, according to Van den Dorpel and Figueroa, fundamental for developing platforms like left.gallery. In this edition of LIMA Online, they will discuss digital structures with a focus on ownership, patronage, value and preservation. Van den Dorpel and Figueroa are also currently co-writing a piece on software and genetics.
