Art and Tech Podcast

Art and technology have always been closely intertwined: new inventions, such as the spray can or the synthesizer, provide the raw material for new forms of art to be produced and/or to be presented IRL (‘in real life’) and virtually. 

This podcast series consists of six episodes that aim to examine how this interplay between art and technology shapes Nigeria’s creative landscape.

Each episode will be between 15 and 30 minutes in length and delve into the work and experience of a specific cultural practitioner based in Abuja or Lagos.

Here is a short summary that explains what the podcast-series is all about:
