A review of the Reworking the Brain session at Transmediale in Berlin on 1st Feb
One of my students sent me this link to a review of Transmediale in Berlin earlier this month. It includes the Reworking the Brain session I contributed to with Hyphen Labs. It’s on the Contemporary Art from East Asia and East Europe website. Not sure who the author (EC) is, but if they want to become my agent, please let me know.
Reworking the Brain at Transmediale, 2019 Berlin
Managed to get through (and survive) my talk at the Transmediale Festival here in Berlin yesterday. This one was with the wonderful Hyphen_Labs talking about their Neurospeculative Afrofuturism project in a session called Reworking the Brain. We were in the auditorium in the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, which is this absolutely huge venue with one of the largest engaged audiences I’ve ever seen at an event like this.
Highlights from the first day were Jackie Wang’s keynote on Carceral Capitalism including some very affecting poetry. Only realized afterwards that it was Jackie who asked me two really interesting/challenging questions during the Reworking the Brain session.
