Spazio Pulpo

Is it desirable to be offline? And is it at all possible in our day? How can new forms of freedom or luxury develop from it? What does being offline mean for our humanity? How important is it for our culture to keep our distance from the web, its algorithms, artificial intelligence, bots and bits? It lies in our nature to expand, to improve our capabilities. So why would a rational person cast off his or her own sense-expanding extra limb? #OFFLINE focuses on installations and objects that are open to this discourse and question contemporary realities. With chmara’rosinke, breadedEscalope, Klemens Schillinger, and Patrick Rampelotto, also guest positions of the newly established TRIALE Institute.
