Media. A screening of In Limbo by Antoine Viviani

NOW. Constructing Contemporaneity Festival
6 November 2016
14:00–16:30

DESCRIPTION

A psychedelic essay on digital technology, its promise of eternal life and its mortifying reality.

Every Internet use leaves a trace: digital waste, deserted continents of information. Digits are eternal, but do images in selfies still belong to the people who have taken them? What is left of us in a digitalized copy we create of ourselves? How do machines change us and when have we become their extension?

Antoine Viviani’s hypnotic essay will make you reconsider your relationship with your iPhone—showing how Gordon Bell, Raymond Kurzweil and a dozen other media visionaries infiltrate your devices, In Limbo questions our independence at the moment we post on Instagram.

In Limbo is screened as part of the Media thematic block of the NOW. Constructing Contemporaneity festival, organised by Garage, Colta.ru and The Heinrich Böll Foundation. The screening will be followed by a discussion with British anthropologist and social media expert Daniel Miller, moderated by Mikhail Ratgauz.
