After City

The collective After New Order is interested in various phenomena on the web, and explores diverse ways of dealing with issues such as user autonomy, web accessibility and post-platform.
After City is the name of the websites that were produced, based on actual places of the three artists’ areas of residence. The artists regard the website as a site with a domain address, and think about the website as a metaphor for a city.
Each website converts a public space like parks and train stations into private spaces, or turns a private space such as office into an open space for public use.
By constructing such websites that add personal experiences and incidents to a physical place, After New Order re-perceives the urban space and expands the meaning of “place.”


Browsing is a moving image of the collective applying, to physical space, their resistance against the web ecosystem that is reorganized around the huge platform.
The artists took on diverse perspectives and focused on 12 different elements like corners and gaps, captured while walking through the main exhibition space in Asia Culture Center.
This reminds us of our experiences of having found meaning in subjects that we unconsciously walked by, or of having taken new paths never travelled before. By doing so, the work tells the audience that the web user can also explore other paths autonomously rather than being subordinate to the order that has been partitioned by the massive platform.
