The omnipresence of digital media technologies and the influence they exert in every field of life are bringing about social transformations which extend even as far as the most intimate issues. Among other things, the question arises of how social media and the datafication of everyday life are affecting the way we see relationships, sexuality and intimacy. Or what other, new forms of interrelations and community will take root in the cracks of biohacking and dating algorithms. To what extent are the concepts of love, family and gender being given a long-due update?
Reflecting cyberfeminism's constant call for new utopian ideologies to improve conditions, the dgtl fmnsm festival will once more be advocating the joyful destabilisation of existing systems, whether that involves re-imagining the gender binary, the patriarchy or the tail end of capitalism. The look and practice of technology-based forms of emancipation are negotiated by artists, activists, theoreticians and viewers as a collective happening and presented, investigated and bolstered during a four-day session. Residencies, sleepovers, installations, performances, Skype-ins, lectures, screenings, workshops, skill sharing and a live online show will offer queer and feminist questions about modern-day intimacy an inclusive space for negotiation. #techpositive - for a better tomorrow!
