Xavier Antin, The Mechanical Condition

Essay by Camille Richert
Summary

Artist and graphic designer, Xavier Antin first became known for his works on the conditions of production and forms of resistance, even revolt, brought about by machines in the course of history. In recent years, he has turned his attention to their role within the dematerialised monetary economy and the language economy that they feed into. This was the starting point of my exchanges with the artist, from which this essay on our contemporary and conflictual relationship to machines has been woven together.
