    March 10, 2019 The Asia//Technics symposium (asiatechnics.info) sought to re-imagine notions of nation, labour, and culture and answered lots of questions: the flows of techno-capital in a multiplicity of Asias. What is produced when information societies and tradition meet? What alternatives can a regional technics in Asia provide against the the prevalence of market-driven enframing of Western technology? How does ‘culture’ reimagine itself in an age of computation so pervasive and seamless it transforms the conditions of cultural (and economic) production itself? What does ‘Digital Asia’ look like and who are its citizens? We cast Asian futurity into relief against AI-assisted technologies that entertain and monitor, special economic zones that bring prosperity and displacement, and other sites responsible for creating Asia’s polymorphous technical cultures.
