Pecha Kucha Art Night 3: Art in the Age of Earthquakes?!
November 6, 2016 at 4 pm at Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin
The euphoria about the possibilities of the Internet and the Share Economy is turning into a general skepticism. Have shocks like Edward Snowden's revelations also added to the spirit of optimism in the art world? Or have their protagonists not yet recognized the potential of the Internet? How do they deal with analog-digital hybridity? How do they create and communicate art in the virtual age? What are opportunities and risks for artists, gallery owners or museums? Which images are important today and how do they function? What does digital change mean for art - and especially for the image?
