Round table 2
If, as McLuhan puts it, “the medium is the message”, has pixel pitch supplanted lens quality and, if so, in favour of what vision of the world? In this post-industrial and highly technical era, the body is in the midst of a context where it is transformed by the devices that we use. How can we deal with this new reality? Is it alienating or, on the contrary, does it open up new possibilities and lead to new discoveries?
Discussion with TANIA MOURAUD, JULIAO SARMENTO, SIMON STARLING, PATRICK TOSANI
Moderator : JACINTO LAGEIRA, professor of aesthetics at Université Paris 1 Panthéon- Sorbonne and art critic, Paris
