UVP 2021-22: It’s Not a Bug, It’s the Future

“We want to corrupt data. We want to fuck up the machine… We recognize that in this breaking, there is a beginning.” — Legacy Russell, Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto (2020)

With UVP’s 2021-22 program year, It’s not a bug; it’s a future, we set up shop on the sites of breakdown in our technologically entangled world—bugs and glitches, viruses and hacks, system panics and failed Turing tests—to explore their dual nature. On the one hand, they are a threat to order and function that endangers us. On the other, these interruptions of the status quo open up the possibility of liberation. In either case, when they happen, bugs and glitches make visible the many techno-social systems that they disrupt. These systems surround us with such ubiquity that we tend to forget they are there all the time, running as background processes—globalized supply chains, binary frameworks of gender, predictive algorithms made from harvested data, and so on.
