I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


An exhibition on the thingness of things in the age of the thingless medium.


Much of our contemporary experiences are increasingly mediated by the Internet and screen-based technologies, overwhelming us with images and information whilst distancing us from the direct experience of objects and things. With many artworks being produced that are not intended to survive beyond their first exhibition, the digital world offers them a second life in ‘perfect’ exhibition documentation, which can be shared, commented on, liked, loved, replayed, upvoted, regrammed and re-seen indefinitely - or for as long as they remain of interest - despite the things themselves being long gone.
