Astrid Deuber-Mankowsky: Google_Baby and the Concept of Life
Blue Skies - Bodies in Trouble
With: Astrid Deuber-Mankowsky, Moderation: Fabian Saavedra-Lara
In 2017 media scholar Astrid Deuber-Mankowsky published an essay on the film ›Google_Baby‹ which deals with the globalization of pregnancy as documented in film. In a brief talk she offers insights into her research on these issues and subsequently engages in a discussion with Fabian Saavedra Lara about fundamental questions associated with the different concepts of life reflected in the artistic and theoretical contributions to the festival.
In the framework of: Blue Skies – Bodies in Trouble (10. – 14.07.2019)
The growing impact of technology on life as we know it brings changes to our bodies, our communities and the environment—what can we do? How can we understand and shape these changes collectively? ›Blue Skies‹ is a festival series conceived to run over several years that invites us to think together. The first edition took place at PACT from July 10 to July 14 under the title ›Bodies in Trouble‹ encompassing performances and contemporary art works, panels, discussions and workshops.
