"Digitalization will come" - this is the mantra of our society. In recent decades the atmosphere of the city has changed drastically. The environment has been transformed into a high-frequency electromagnetic field by the increasing number of antennas. In my talk, I will use examples from art and technology to speculate on how the change in urban space and atmospheres can be grasped, but also why 5G is a perfect case for techno-criticism and conspiracy theories alike.


20:40 – 21:00

Deep time is understood as the concept behind geological time: the history of the earth from its beginnings as a molten ball of matter until the present. Deep futures do not yet exist, they are a thought-vehicle to speculate within the probability space of a future earth.


21:30 – 22:00

Part of the opening night, also this years Exhibition "Lost in a garden of clouds" will open with a "tour". This will be done through a short conversation with the two exhibition designers Yang Mu and Sai Bao.
