The theme this year is ‘Authenticity?’ and ‘How To Stay Cool in the Post-Digital Age’. Bringing together diverse perspectives on these concepts from arts and technology, the event will be host to a long line-up of events, exhibitions, screenings, performances and talks that will respond to the way we present ourselves against the backdrop of a growing desire to remain authentic within a time where authorship is becoming increasingly irrelevant and indefinable.
Some notable events include three different screenings by Ben Rivers, performance (A)ROMA))NCE by Peter Sattler & Kristinn Gedmundsson, a lecture by Rob Horning on authenticity and domination, and exhibition Authenticity is Dead, Long Live Authenticity, featuring work by Oliver Laric, Amalia Ulman and Elise van Mourik, among many others.
