"What are the choreographies in which our lives are held? What rhythms, or algorithms,
drive these? At which scales and tempos do they play out?"

"The International Necronautical Society (INS), a neo-avant-garde, stringently hierarchically organized network of artists, writers, and philosophers, has developed a complex admission procedure for the exhibition. Every visitor must sign a consumer contract on the basis of the INS’s philosophical doctrine. Signing this declaration, which is based on the conditions of present day digital capitalism, is absolutely required in order to visit the exhibition."
