with jes sachse and Rea Sweets

new media making workshop & slow social gathering

Inspired by Wendy Coburn's video practice and concern with authorship and its manipulations, join artists jes sachse and Rea Sweets for a time and space of slow art, silent protest, and social media.

In a time of pandemic, privatization & its discontents, how do we carve intimacy in and away from the algorithms of perpetual self/ie-censorship and surveillance? Does content get warnings because we’re not giving space and time for care? Does art dismiss healing? Does the camera come first?
