Constant @ transmediale

The 2019 edition of transmediale focuses on the role of emotions, empathy, and cultural emergence in digital culture. Constant co-moderates one of its two Study Circles on Affective Infrastructures and in addition, is involved in multiple workshops and events:

The Affective Infrastructures Study Circle
What does ‘affective infrastructures’ mean and why might this composite term be relevant today? Can thoughts, emotions, objects and stories themselves constitute infrastructures, binding us to each other and to the world itself? With Maya Indira Ganesh, Femke Snelting, Marija Bozinovska Jones, Lou Cornum, Tung-Hui Hu, Fernanda Monteiro, Nadège, Pedro Oliveira

Thursday 31 January 15:00-18:00: Workshop
