"If it looks like zeitgeist, it might be anxiety: art after the Internet"
A lecture by Orit Gat

Our relationship to technology is defined by a curious mix of fascination, reliance, and fear. What happens to art in this context? This talk explores the current place of art in connection to networked technology, looking into platforms for the presentation and dissemination of art online and the discourse they may or may not have created; the many recent exhibitions dedicated to art that deals with data, the internet, and technology; and what fuels these trends: the anxiety of being left behind.
