The exhibition features “Liquidity Inc.” (2014), a new acquisition to the ICA’s collection Hito Steyerl. This video sculpture uses water as its guiding theme, and has particular resonance at the ICA’s waterfront location. Liquidity Inc. takes as a point of departure the story of Jacob Wood, a former financial analyst who lost his job during the 2008 economic recession and decided to turn his hobby in mixed martial arts into a career. In her work, she has addressed the wide-ranging effects of today’s mass proliferation and dissemination of images, issues of surveillance and militarization, and the evolving functions of technology in our networked culture.
Hito Steyerl: Liquidity Inc, 13 Dec 2017 — 22 Apr 2018
ICA Boston, 25 Harbor Shore Drive
