ARE YOU FOR REAL- Instagram Live Talk Series

Already more than one year of ARE YOU FOR REAL! What’s new and what has been further developed? Join in to learn more about the artworks, the platform, and the ongoing process. The conversations will be in English.

The web-based project ARE YOU FOR REAL was launched in 2020 and is constantly evolving. It is about engaging with and visualizing connections of people, thoughts, things, and places – communication happening through the trading and training of data. It addresses the material and immaterial aspects of the ‘digital’ and how they are perceived from the perspectives of various disciplines: artists, researchers, and coders are commissioned to create works that offer us their understanding of and approach to reality.
