Artist-group initiated by Maria Roszkowska, Poland/France, Nicolas Maigret, France
DISNOVATION.ORG is a working group at the intersection of contemporary art, research and hacking.
They develop situations of disruption, speculation, and debate, in order to question dominant techno-positivist ideologies, and to stimulate post-growth narratives. They edited the pirate book, an anthology on media piracy. Their research includes artworks, curation and publications.
In 2018 they received a design trust grant (Hong Kong) for a research about China's Shanzhai culture. They are currently visiting researchers at the University of California, Irvine.
Their work has been presented internationally including: Centre Pompidou (Paris), Transmediale (Berlin), the Museum of Art and Design (New York), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), FILE (Sao Paulo), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Strelka Institute (Moscow), ISEA (Hong Kong), Elektra (Montreal), China Museum of Digital Arts (Beijing), and the Chaos Computer Congress (Hamburg).
Their work has been featured in: Forbes, Vice, Wired, Motherboard, Libération, Die Zeit, Arte TV, Next Nature, Hyperallergic, Le Temps, Neural.it, Digicult, Gizmodo, Seattle Weekly, torrentfreak.com, and Filmmaker Magazine among others.
