Intermezzo & VR Freie Kunst: Thumbs that Type and Swipe

The DIS Edutainment Network. Mit Marco Roso.

A New York-based collective comprising Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso and David Toro, DIS works across a wide range of formats and has recently switched platforms, transitioning from an online magazine to a video-streaming edutainment channel at dis.art.

It seems like we’ve lost our minds: but who needs a brain when we’ve got thumbs that can type and swipe across screens, seeking knowledge in a sea of online information too vast for the human mind to take in?

Thumbs That Type and Swipe: The DIS Edutainment Network is a guide for this brave new world that helps us understand how to be and how to view our own bodies and societies in the techno-capitalist context. Reflecting on this important new stage for the collective: the launch of a video network that hybridizes art education and entertainment, mobilizing an intergenerational network around the critical issues we face today and will face tomorrow.

This Salon is a cooperation and a crossover with Vortragsreihe Freie Kunst: www.fk.hfk-bremen.de
