Part of HOP Projects curatorial residency programme, sound artist and performer Laura Netz presents an exhibition exploring frameworks of DIY cultures, which emerged from the 1970s as a reaction to technological deployment. Influenced by underground vanguard movements, the handmade culture currently sets an exponent of free culture, open sources, and movements such as hacker and maker. The results of these practices involve an interdisciplinary connection between art, science and technology that improves the creative aspects of contemporary art and cultural production. Moreover, sound art practices enriched interconnections with music and engineering. The exhibition pretends to highlight DIY practices in front of the capitalist industry. Representing an essential change in the prototyping of musical instruments and sound objects that have efficiently set a primary creative impulse in our century. The exhibition will highlight the collaboration between musicians, visual artists, and curators to research new genres of experimental and contemporary art.
