All realms of our daily life are determined by digital technology: humanoid robots are deployed in health care, sex robots compensate for deficits in human relations, intelligent appliances listen to our conversations and look after our needs – we communicate more with technology than with other people.
The publication Real Feelings explores the swiftly changing relationship between technology and emotions and presents works by 20 international artists that explore how technology represents, manipulates and is capable of changing our feelings.
With works by Antoine Catala, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Justine Emard, Cécile B. Evans, Kyle McDonald & Lauren McCarthy, Simone C. Niquille, Lucy McRae, Shinseungback Kimyonghun, Maija Tammi, Troika, Liam Young and many more
