Digital PTSD
The Practice of Art and Its Impact on Digital Trauma 
Part I: online program: December 12, 4pm–midnight (GMT +1) 
Part II: online program: May 20, 2021

The Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea presents a two-part online program of talks, conversations, and artworks between 2020–2021, entitled Digital PTSD: The Practice of Art and Its Impact on Digital Trauma developed in the framework of the exhibition Espressioni. The Proposition. 

Digital PTSD. Part I is live streamed in partnership with e-flux both on this page and Castello di Rivoli website. The event is free, please register here.

It is counterintuitive, but Digital PTSD presents through an online platform a critique of the potential misuse of technologies. What are the traumatic consequences of the sudden increase in virtual activities in a period when spaces of aggregation, such as museums, are in lockdown? Digital PTSD invites to reflect on screen-based experience, the physical erosion of living matter, the transformation of life into big data and the new digital epistemic regime.

Participants in Part I include: Tabita Rezaire, artist; Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, museum director, exhibition maker, writer; Beatriz Colomina & Mark Wigley, architectural historians, theorists, curators; Cécile B. Evans, artist; Matteo Pasquinelli, cognitive sciences, digital economy, machine intelligence theorist; Hito Steyerl, filmmaker, visual artist, writer, and innovator of the essay documentary; Grada Kilomba, artist and writer; Anne Imhof, artist musician; Bracha L. Ettinger, painter, theorist, psychoanalyst; Éric Sadin, writer and philosopher; Vittorio Gallese, cognitive neuroscientist; Ophelia Deroy, philosopher and cognitive neuroscientist; Griselda Pollock, feminist-postcolonial-queer-international art historian and cultural analyst; Agnieszka Kurant, artist; Cally Spooner, artist; Chus Martínez, curator and writer; Stuart Ringholt, artist; Marcos Lutyens, artist and hypnotist

The event runs from 4pm–midnight (GMT +1).
