ARTFUTURA 2018 / 2019 Humanized Technology

ArtFutura reaches its twenty-ninth edition in more than twenty cities including: Alicante, Buenos Aires, London, Madrid, México, Montevideo and Shanghai.

The festival opens on November 22, with special activities in London (Stour Space), Madrid (Espacio Fundación Telefónica) and Alicante (Museum of Contemporary Art )

What does it mean to be human in the age of technology?

And does digital technology adapt to our real aspirations and needs or is it the other way around? Perhaps we are heading towards a more friendly, more empathic and more human world? Or are we going in the opposite direction? With the technological revolution, the Internet and social networks, we have fostered the intimate possibilities of the self, but we have also developed technologies such as Virtual Reality or Mixed Reality that may allow us to create extended, more perfect, compassionate and empathetic communication networks between people. And to understand this new symbiosis between humanity and technology, art is a crucial element. The network of artists and researchers Collaboration for Humane Technologies affirms that “at the heart of our creative action is the conviction that to generate viable futures we must critically rethink technological progress in favor of a posthumanism that is neither anti-human nor exclusively to sustain the human life, as we know it today”.

Venue ( Address ): 

7 Roach Road, London E3 2PA
