Structures of Feeling – transmediale 2019 Opening

Structures of Feeling – transmediale 2019 Opening

31.01.2019 19:00
Special event

Moderated by Kristoffer Gansing

Affect, emotion, feeling: everyone now is talking about those domains that are traditionally relegated to the unsaid of society. This present turn to feeling is about social, technological, and political transformations that transmediale 2019 proposes can be understood from the point of view of what Raymond Williams once called “Structures of Feeling”: emergent cultural sentiments and areas of practice not yet fully apprehended by institutions or a coherent semantic framework. From a tech-tutorial on emotions in machine learning to an ethnography of feelings of inferiority, the opening brings together different perspectives in a discussion on how contemporary structures of feeling are captured in technology and social structures as well as their potential for creativity and change.

For this event, simultaneous translation to German is available via headphones.
With friendly support from ECHOO Konferenzdolmetschen.
