Culture Machine

Culture Machine Logo

Culture Machine, a member of the Radical Open Access Collective, is a series of experiments in culture and theory. Since 1999, it has sought out and promoted scholarly work that engages provocatively with contemporary technical objects, processes and imaginaries from the North and South. Building on its open ended, non-instrumental, and exploratory approach to media theory, cultural studies and political philosophy, Culture Machine is actively calling for creative proposals that contest and come up against globalizing technical narratives and the environmental logics of extraction.
