Critical Infrastructure and Image Politics is a research group dedicated to investigating the politics of contemporary digital and visual cultures at the intersection of media art and critical theory.

We foreground transdisciplinary and practice-based methodologies of artistic and activist-led research in media and technocultures with specific interests in material infrastructures, critical posthumanities, algorithmic visual cultures, feminist and decolonial technocultures, and media ecologies.

We are based in Art and Media Technology Department, Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton, UK.
