Post-Covid, the role of technology in society changed the way we work, communicate, consume and create culture globally. The universality of technological transformations necessitates a reflection on artists’ role in forging this societal change. How can artists help to ensure that technological resources remain scalable, accessible, affordable, ethical, and human-centered? As active agents, visionaries and pioneers of rapidly changing techno-cultures, media artists often lead by example through their own practice, while frequently identifying rampant public deficits through their art: This chapter discusses Art in Flux’ curatorial and artistic strategies to facilitate societal change including its focus on representation in the media arts.
