Don’t Be Evil

30 July 2021 – 22 January 2022

The University of Queensland Art Museum, University Drive, St Lucia Qld 4072 Australia

Featuring artists Zach Blas & Jemima Wyman, Kate Crawford & Vladan Joler, Simon Denny, Xanthe Dobbie, Sean Dockray, Forensic Architecture, Kate Geck, Elisa Giardina Papa, Matthew Griffin, Eugenia Lim, Daniel McKewen, Angela Tiatia, Suzanne Treister, and Katie Vida.

Lifted from Google’s original corporate motto before it was insidiously removed in 2015, Don’t Be Evil considers the all-pervasiveness of networked technologies on our everyday lives. With a focus on the techno-politics that define our age, participating artists investigate how the Internet has reshaped social relations and information flows, capitalism and democracy, through forces that we as individuals have very little control over.
