[Nettime-nl] PSWAR LECTURES & PRESENTATIONS: Sat.20 May - Sun. 21 May at 2 PM (Modified by Geert Lovink)


Public Space With A Roof would like to invite you
Pixels of Reality: What do you Know, What do You See?

ARTISTS PRESENTATIONS, FILMS, LECTURES AND DISCUSSIONS
Saturday, 20 May & 21 May at 2 pm
Thomas Elsaesser, Rainer Ganahl, Sagi Groner, Jon Kessler, Steve Rushton, Wael Shawky, Tjebbe van Tijen, REBOND.


In the last few decades, the digitalized image has become our main tool to perceive reality. When zoomed in on this image, it reveals its deceptive and fragmented nature – tiny squares in different colours – pixels of our reality. Hence, our perception of the surrounding world is based on this false uniformity of a highly fragmented and complex entity. The aim of our project is to zoom in on this image and reveal its structure, so as to show the artificiality of such a mediated perception of the world.

We invite artists, curators and theoreticians who already question this mediated reality in their work to reflect on their own position and agency. Or, as film director Peter Watkins has formulated it: we want to examine the role of the artist in “a world where ethics, morality, human collectivity, and commitment (except to opportunism) are considered ‘old fashioned’”.
