Every Emoji, every WhatsApp message, every “Like” on Instagram, and every left or right swipe on Tinder influences our social behaviors and relationships. Artist and researcher Karen Lancel from Lancel/Maat explores embodiment, empathy, and intimacy, as well as isolation and estrangement in (non-)human interactions. Meanwhile, Eva Ostrowska, artist and designer, uses traditional weaving methods to criticize social dynamics and relationships in a digital era from a feminist perspective. Join the conversation on how technology and framed data collected from the interpretation of intimate connections affect human interactions and social behaviors. This talk will be presented in English at the Schaudepot of the Vitra Design Museum.
Admission to the talk is free; register to attend at
