*POLICY OF DISAPPEARANCE is an exhibition and series of texts bringing up the issue of our existence online. The traces we leave there on a daily basis have become for the late-capitalist information economy what coal was for the industrial age – its essential raw material. On its basis, the increasingly efficient sets of algorithms decide which snippet of the universe we should see and what to desire. Their efficiency is to a large extent a consequence of our own activity. The artists and researchers present at the exhibition attempt to escape this logic in various ways: they test the man/machine boundaries, intercept the activity of algorithms, look for new forms of corporality or establish an alternative network of information flow.
