"We have to fix society, before we can fix the internet. That's the only thing."

Peter Sunde 2017

By coincidence or fate, Adam Curtis’ documentary
“HyperNormalization” (2016) pointed out the specifics of artist’s interest towards hyper-realistic pictorialism and hyper-productivity problematics of the world that came with utopian thinking of bankers/politicians, and later utopian internet and post internet thinking in the global ecologies of economics and societies driven by illusions and false ideals. We live in many worlds, in overlapped realities, or dimensions if you please. “After Affect” is here to remind us of how one should not take everything for granted.

Vsevolod Kovalevskij (born 1988, Vilnius, Lithuania) practice is based on critical thought and humour, his works are driven by research and in that he creates tools/experiences to better question conditions of ones surroundings. This results in process-based installations that establish a relationship between the active spectator, the artist and members of the broader community.
