MindAIness : Digital Intimacy

BcmA are excited to present performance artists during performance month in Berlin in May 2024, which were selected in our Opencall. 
The dreamscape of a science-fiction reality with flying cars and hologram phone calls once seemed an unattainable future; a contradiction of our body-based life on earth. But as our lives become more entangled with technology, where the body ends and technology begins are perhaps no longer an easily answered question. Digitality and AI has become an extension of our brains and fingertips which impacts the way we communicate and express ourselves– both in our close personal relationships, yet also in a larger, geo-political way. Are our human longing for closeness and contact being compromised or made easier by the means of avatars and AI written love letters? By focusing on body and technology, we can explore the relations between these two entities that once were seen as opposite, but now are enclosing parts of human existence. Referring to digital communication as a different reality not real life no longer withstands. The notion of digital intimacy thus covers to the deep emotional between human that can support without the need for physical presence. Establishing and maintaining close and meaningful relationships are now within the digital proximity.
