The Digital Media Environment – Webinar with Sara Bezovšek

Tuesday / 19.01.2021 /  6:00pm  @ ZOOM

As part of this seminar, we got acquainted with the artistic practice of Sara Bezovšek. Through the artistic practice of appropriation, she is an artist who explores the influences of Internet culture and online social media on contemporary visual art. The discussion was based on the digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff’s text The Digital Media Environment, published in his book Team Human. We will discuss the digital environment and its impact on the assumption of reality. As the author says: „The more we accept the screen as a window on reality, the more likely we are to accept the choices it offers. But what about the choices that it doesn’t offer? Do they actually not exist?”
