Extending over 500 square metres in the Centre Pompidou’s Galerie 3, the group exhibition “Coder le Monde” offers an introduction to the creative use of code through timelines, installations and screenings, tracing over a period of 40 years the key moments in the emergence of a digital culture that has today become a taken-for-granted part of everyday life. Artists, musicians, writers, architects, and designers in all sorts of fields have pioneered an alternative approach to the digital, and the exhibition includes a space dedicated to live coding that also provides a platform for live presentations. The exhibition is organised in six sections: the Algorists (an international art movement, 1955 to 1975), contemporary music, digital literatures, digital form creation in art, architecture and design, the body and code, and technologies for the visualisation of code and datascapes.
‘Coding the World’ will include one of Troika’s most recent dice works ‘Life and Death of an Algorithm’, a logically-derived composition using dice showing only 1's or 6's. This work was recently included in the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou.
