ABOUT PERFORMATIVE COMPUTATION
Founded by Selwa Sweidan Performative Computation is a platform which bridges computational practices and the arts. Through talks, performances, workshops, and exhibitions, Performative Computation supports experimental practice and dialogue. We strive for intersectional programming featuring majority female-identifying and non-binary presenters and participants. Our aim is to inclusively cross-fertilize methods and inquiry between the arts, sciences and humanities.
