Mac Andre Arboleda is an artist interested in exploring the sickness of the Internet through research and dialogue, art and text, organizing and publishing. Originally from the Philippines, he is currently based in Berlin, Germany while taking up an Erasmus Mundus joint master program in Media Arts Cultures.
Mac Andre Arboleda is a resident in the Beta x transmediale 2023 Residency Programme.
During his residency Mac Andre Arboleda will develop ABOLISH THE SCREEN!, an artistic research project and manifesto that investigates the implications and politics surrounding the screen as a central medium for societal functions. Through a series of workshops, dialogues, and presentations, the project questions what the abolition of the screen might mean, and speculates on the new dependencies that could arise from its disappearance.
